  1. Holly MArtin - Coming Home to Maple Cottage Synopsis: Isla Rosewood is creating a new life for herself and her sweet nephew Elliot in their cosy, yellow-brick family cottage, brimming with special memories. Living in Sandcastle Bay was never part of Isla’s plan but, after her brother Matthew’s tragic accident, her whole world changed as she unexpectedly became a mother to the little boy she adores so much.

    Leo Jackson was always known as Matthew’s fun-loving and wild best friend. But now Matthew is gone, it’s time to put his colourful past behind him. His role as Elliot’s godfather is the most important thing to him. And even though Leo and Isla are two very different people, they both want to give Elliot the childhood he deserves.

    As the three of them enjoy time together watching fireworks, baking cakes and collecting conkers, Isla begins to see a softer side to charming Leo, with his twinkling eyes and mischievous sense of humour. And, despite herself, she begins to fall for him.

    But does Leo feel the same way? Isla knows their situation is complicated but is it too complicated for true love… or will the year end with a happy new beginning for them all?

    Kat's Review: I am massively behind with so many authors and books and considering I was desperate to read this and have had it so long it has taken me ages! However, when I finally did get around to it (last night) it soon became apparebt I was in for a late night. For those that maybe haven't read the previous 2 books, could you read as a standalone? I guess so, but I would also hazard a guess that the book would seem slightly over the top in parts and slightly confusing in places. I think to really appreciate this you have to have read the backstory in the previous two books.

    Kat's Review: Okay people, if you haven't read the Ryan Lock and Ty Johnson series by Sean Black then there is seriously something wrong...this is one of the best series of books written and is hugely under-rated. I am not necessarily a lover of the short novella type books (in this case a 17,000 word short book) but for these guys...I make an exception.

    Not a lot to say about this particular little nugget of a book except that it's brilliant and will give you an insight into the sort of guy Ty Johnson is. I already know what sort of guy he is along with his partner Ryan Lock and this seems more like something to whet the appetite until the next full length novel comes out (which I think is October). I would highly recommend people read not only this novella but the whole series as it's awesome! One thing I will say is that Ryan Lock gets more airtime and it's great seeing Ty get all of the attention. I would always read a book about either character but their strength is when they work together!
