Letterbox Love #107

Letterbox Love is a way to give all of the books I receive for review some exposure. Summaries are taken from the cover, or Amazon/NetGalley/Goodreads in the case of e-books, unless otherwise stated.

I forgot to post last Sunday so this is the last two weeks of review books!

Christmas Wishes and Mistletoe Kisses, Jenny Hale (e-proof)

An uplifting, beautiful story about never letting go of your dreams, the special magic of a family Christmas…and the rush of falling in love under the Mistletoe.

Single mother Abbey Fuller loves her family more than anything, and doesn’t regret for a moment having had to put her dreams of being an entire designer on hold. But with her son, Max, growing up, when a friend recommends her for a small design job she jumps at the chance. How hard can it be?

Nick Sinclair needs his house decorated in time for his family’s festive visit – and money is no object. What he doesn’t need is to be distracted from his multi-million dollar business – even if it is Christmas.

When Abbey pulls up to the huge Sinclair mansion, she has a feeling she might be out of her depth. And when she meets the gorgeous, brooding Nicholas Sinclair, she knows she’s in real trouble…

With the snow falling all around, can Abbey take the chance to make her dreams of becoming a designer come true? And can she help Nick to finally enjoy the magic of Christmas?

Another comfy Christmas read for me! Thanks NetGalley and Bookouture.

Make a Christmas Wish, Julia Williams (e-proof)

What's your secret wish this Christmas?

Last Christmas, when Livvy as knocked down in the supermarket car park she certainly wasn’t ready to be dead! For months now she's floated on the edge of the afterlife, generally making a nuisance of herself.

And she's not ready to go just yet! She's furious about the new woman in her husband’s life and she's worried about her beloved son who doesn’t seem to be adjusting to life without her at all.

This Christmas, Livvy is given one last magical chance to make everything right. Will she take the gift she's been given to create the perfect family Christmas?

Nope, definitely not another Christmas book… Thanks NetGalley and Avon!

Hello, Goodbye and Everything in Between, Jennifer E Smith (e-proof)

One night. A life-changing decision. And a list…

Of course Clare made a list. She creates lists for everything. That’s just how she is.

But tonight is Clare and Aidan’s last night before college and this list will decide their future, together or apart.

It takes them on a rollercoaster ride through their past – from the first hello in science class to the first conversation at a pizza joint, their first kiss at the beach and their first dance in a darkened gymnasium – all the way up to tonight.

A night of laughs, fresh hurts, last-minute kisses and an inevitable goodbye.

But will it be goodbye forever or goodbye for now?

I loved this! I devoured it in about two hours. Thanks Headline and NetGalley.

The Crossover, Kwame Alexander (paperback)

“A bolt of lightning on my kicks…
          The court is sizzling.
                   My Sweat is drizzling.
Stop all that quivering.
             Cuz tonight I’m delivering.”

Josh and his twin Jordan have basketball in their blood. They're kings of the court, star players for their school.

But when Jordan meets a girl, the twins’ tight-knit bond is tested – are the rules of the game about to be broken?

I’m not usually a fan of sport novels, but I was sent the first few pages by the publisher and I fell in love with the feel of the novel as it's in verse! Thanks Andersen Press!

Did I Mention I Need You?, Estelle Maskame (paperback)

It's been a year since eighteen-year-old Eden Munro last saw Tyler Bruce: her stepbrother…and her secret love. Although they called time on their forbidden relationship for the sake of their family, Eden can't help but feel excited when Tyler invites her to join him in New York City for the summer.

Anyway, Eden is happy with her boyfriend Dean, and surely Tyler has moved on too. But as they spend a long, hot summer in the excitement of the city that never sleeps, it soon becomes obvious that they aren’t over each other. But can they resist temptation?

In Did I Mention I Need You?, the second volume of Estelle Maskame’s phenomenal DIMILY trilogy, Tyler and Eden must face up to their feelings and decide what to do next. Is their love strong enough to face the challenges that lie ahead?

YAY! Reading this immediately! Thanks Black and White Publishing!

Confessions of an Imaginary Friend, Michelle Cuevas (proof)

Jacques Papier thinks that everyone hates him.

After all, teachers ignore him when he raises his hand, nobody ever picks him for sports teams, and his sister, Fleur, keeps having to remind their parents to set a place for him at the dinner table.

But then Jacques discovers an uncomfortable truth: He is NOT Fleur’s brother, he’s her imaginary friend!

And so begins Jacques’ quest for identity…what do you do when you realise that the only reason you exist is because of someone else’s imagination?

The whimsical “autobiography” of an imaginary friend who doesn’t know he’s imaginary – perfect for fans of Toy Story, The Imaginary and Moone Boy.

This sounds like so much fun! Thanks S&S!
