It's Monday, What Are You Reading?! - Hosted By BookDate

Hosted by Book Date - It's Monday, and i thought i would share what i am currently reading, and what i plan to read. It has been so long since i have finished a book, or even sat down to read one, between training for a race and watching countless epsidoes of dance moms, books have just sat to the side crying for me.

What i am currently reading?

When Geniver Loxley lost her daughter at birth eight years ago, her world stopped… and never fully started again. Mothers with strollers still make her flinch; her love of writing has turned into a half-hearted teaching career; and she and her husband, Art, have slipped into the kind of rut that seems inescapable.

But then a stranger shows up on their doorstep, telling Gen the very thing she’s always wanted to hear: that her daughter Beth was not stillborn, but was taken away as a healthy infant and is still out there, somewhere, waiting to be found. It’s insane, unbelievable. But why would anyone make that up? A fissure suddenly opens up in Gen’s carefully reconstructed life, letting in a flood of unanswerable questions. Where is Beth now? Why is Art so reluctant to get involved? To save his wife from further hurt? Or is it something more sinister? And who can she trust to help her?

I found this when tearing my room apart recently forgetting that i even owned it. Unsure what to read i picked it up and within about 10 pages i am already hooked more than i have been with any book in a while, i dont know if its because it was unexpected or just a brilliant book but i am looking for every spare moment to delve into it.

Imogen Charlton is sorted. Dead-beat husband? History. Dream job? Application sent. But then her impulsive brother, Harry, spends every last penny on a Greek restaurant in Corfu, and is determined to run it himself. It’s up to Imogen to bring him to his senses. 

When sexy millionaire Panos Dimitriou offers to buy back his family taverna, Imogen wonders if all her prayers have been answered (and all her fantasies about to come true). But Harry won’t budge, and his enthusiasm is infectious. 

Bright pink bougainvillea tumbling over whitewashed walls, endless blue skies, the sparkling Mediterranean; it’s hard not to fall for Corfu. And that’s not all Imogen is falling for… 

As the sparks of passion fly between Imogen and Panos, is Imogen having second thoughts on selling the restaurant? And will she have to choose between love and a new dream? 

Its that time of year where the suns out (or rain in this case) and its time to visit Greek with this wonderful book, i have been reading this on lunch breaks at work and its a fab read and almsot like a mini getaway with some sizzling romance thrown in.

What i am reading next?

In the chaos of New York, true love can be hard to find, even when it's been right under your nose all along… 

Love has never been a priority for garden designer Frankie Cole. After witnessing the fallout of her parents' divorce, she's seen the devastation an overload of emotion can cause. The only man she feels comfortable with is her friend Matt—but that's strictly platonic. If only she found it easier to ignore the way he makes her heart race… 

Matt Walker has loved Frankie for years but, sensing how fragile she is beneath her feisty exterior, has always played it cool. But then he uncovers new depths to the girl he's known forever and doesn't want to wait a moment longer. He knows Frankie has secrets and has buried them deep, but can Matt persuade her to trust him with her heart and kiss him under the Manhattan sunset?

Just as i was typing this up, the newest Sarah Morgan fell through my letter box, and bumped itself straight up my tbr. For those who have read my blog for a long time you will know how much i adore Sarah Morgan so i cannot wait for this latest edition.
