A Wish For Jo

My Thoughts

A Wish for Jo puts local café owner and baker, Jo, in the spotlight. She loves her café, A Bit of Crumpet, but would really like something other than work in her life. She doesn’t know what exactly…excitement, maybe romance or just a touch of magic now and then…

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Do you ever feel that life has got it in for you? Jinnie Cooper certainly does.

After being dumped by her fickle fiancé Jinnie Cooper has relocated to the small village of Cranley. She needs to start over and the first priority is finding a job.

#ThrowbackThursday ~ Taming the Highlander (Scottish Relic Trilogy #2) by May McGoldrick #HistoricalFiction #Fantasy

Taming the Highlander is the second book in a trilogy I enjoyed listening to a few years ago.

My Thoughts

Fifty years previously four small pieces of a stone relic, the Wheel of Lugh, were brought to Scotland. Each fragment held a special gift but together, the four pieces would hold a terrible power if they were to fall into the wrong hands. The bearers of the tablets had sworn an oath, to travel to the farthest reaches of Scotland to keep the pieces of the relic separate.

#ThrowbackThursday ~ Sealskin by Su Bristow #MagicalRealism #Selkies

 Sealskin was released as an audiobook in Februaury 2017 and performed extremely well by Angus King. 

My Thoughts

Based on the selkie myths, this is a wonderfully original debut novel. An extraordinary tale with dark undercurrents, it’s about the power of love, magic, forgiveness and conversely violence, loss and atonement. It explores the meaning of community, the story giving the impression of being set in times gone by, which combined with the complexities of living in a small fishing village, intensifies the atmosphere. When life could be extremely harsh, villagers didn’t stray far from home and weather and sea dictated their way of life.
