#BlogTour NEW YEAR, NEW GUY by ANGELA BRITNELL #BookReview @rararesources @ChocLituk @AngelaBritnell

Always a delight to be involved in a Blog Tour for Angela Britnell, so delighted to share my thoughts today for her latest NEW YEAR, NEW GUY. My thanks to the author, publisher and Rachel of Rachel’s Random Resources for putting the tour together and letting me be part of it all!

Out with the old life, in with the new …


When Laura’s bride-to-be sister, Polly, organises a surprise reunion for her fiancé and his long lost American friend, Laura grudgingly agrees to help keep the secret. And when the plain-spoken, larger-than-life Hunter McQueen steps off the bus in her rainy Devon town and only just squeezes into her tiny car, it confirms that Laura has made a big mistake in going along with her sister’s crazy plan.


But could the tall, handsome man with the Nashville drawl be just what reserved Laura Williams needs to shake up her life and start something new?

MY REVIEW

Hunter – swoon!!! 😍 I could just let that be my review!! But I won’t! 

I’ve adored spending time in the company of Hunter and Laura – thrown together as she ‘babysits’ him ahead of her sisters’ wedding. He’s the surprise guest from America, and when she’s told about her assignment she’s not too pleased!  But she wants her sister to be happy so is a good host, and ‘hides’ him at her house until the big day.

They are very different personalities – she’s very reserved and guarded, he’s not backward in coming forward but is really sweet and funny, but you do get the sense he’s hiding something as he’s a little edgy at times and doesn’t seem comfortable in certain situations.

I loved seeing how they spent time -she introduces him to lots of British things and he seems to find the more time he spends with Laura, the more he begins to relax.

Both Laura and Hunter seem to be troubled by their pasts and I really loved seeing how having support helped them both confront those demons and find a little bit of peace.  

This is a story full of heart and humour, it’s emotional and endearing and I highly recommend it!

#PublicationDayPost NEW YEAR NEW GUY by ANGELA BRITNELL #guestpost @ChocLituk @AngelaBritnell

An absolute delight for me today to be able to post this Blog Post on behalf of the lovely Angela Britnell and Choc Lit on PUBLICATION DAY!!   So sit back and enjoy a few words from Angela, a little bit more about the book and, most importantly!, links to be able to get your mitts on a copy of the wonderful NEW YEAR, NEW GUY!

New Year New Guy: A Brief Break from Cornwall!

This story is a break from my usual Cornwall/Nashville romances because the setting ventures over the border into Devon and the city of Plymouth, with a few side trips I don’t want to give away here! It was interesting to change things up and I hope my readers will forgive me and hopefully enjoy visiting some different places along the way. To those who don’t know there has always been a touch of rivalry between Cornwall and Devon, in fact older Cornish people will talk about crossing the Tamar River border as though they are travelling to another country. And don’t even get them all started on the proper way to eat a cream tea. Whether to put jam or cream on the scones first is the source of endless debates. I purposely avoided going anywhere near that particular minefield in the book but anyone who knows that I’m Cornish born and bred will guess where I fall on that particular question…

‘Out with the old life, in with the new,’ sums the book up perfectly. When we first meet Laura she’s standing in the rain at the Plymouth bus station waiting to collect Hunter who her sister Polly has invited as a surprise for her fiancé Johnny at their pre-wedding party. Although Laura is cynical about the idea of lifelong love after escaping from her own brief, bad marriage to an arrogant surgeon she agreed to take care of this unknown American for a few days to please her sister. The minute Hunter sets foot on English soil again for the first time in twenty years he knows he’s made a mistake and would bet his last dollar that his old friend won’t be pleased to have the past dragged up. For a multitude of reasons, many of them tied to the time he and Johnny spent at school together, he’s also determined to stay single and no prickly English nurse will change his mind. Or will she? Could Laura come around to the idea that love doesn’t have to mean losing her sense of self?

It was a challenge to touch on a few darker themes in this story without losing the sense of fun and romance I always strive to bring to my books but I hope I’ve managed it, only reviews and sales will confirm that. Sending Laura and Hunter’s story out into the world today means that it’s time to get busy on my summer release!

MY REVIEW

Little Penhaven became one of my new favourite locations in the first in the series – One Summer in Little Penhaven – so it’s been an absolute delight to be able to visit there again and catch up with some of the characters.  You don’t need to have read the first book though to fall in love with the  storyline and characters in this book and I may have another book boyfriend crush thanks to being introduced to Hal in this story!!

This story follows Jane, who is a wannabee author, and she’s expecting another quiet Christmas with very little going on!  She’s got a lovely group of friends who are always there for her, but she’s kind of got into a bit of ‘safe’ rut and it’s been ages since she’s connected with anybody romantically and even her writing seems to have suffered as she’s still not finished her novel.

Hal is new to town as he’s Sam’s cousin and needed to get away from life in America.  You know he’s hiding something about the reason he needed an escape so it’s intriguing to see that storyline develop and shows a really different side to him as he always appears so confident.  He’s up for a proper english Christmas so is happy to join in with the activities and finds himself spending more time with Jane as they both share darker pasts that they’re struggling to break free from.

What I love about these stories is just how relatable they are, and how you feel part of the community just reading about the goings on and the problems facing the villagers.  There’s a lovely side story featuring Jane and her brother and shows how the importance of a male role model can make such a difference if energies are directed in a positive manner!

As they both begin to open up, it’s clear to see that they’re so good for one another and you just hope that their pasts aren’t going to stop them from being happy and achieving their dreams.  A wonderfully uplifting and heartwarming story!

Extremely thrilled to be the latest stop on the Blog Tour for this fabulous book! My thanks to the author, publisher and Rachel of Rachel’s Random Resources for putting it all together and letting me be part of it!

One Summer in Little Penhaven

 Could one summer change your life? When high-flying American lawyer Samantha Muir finds out she’s lost her partnership whilst on an assignment in London, she has a dramatic reaction. Rather than returning home, she resigns, leaves her business suits behind and jumps on the first train to Cornwall at the encouragement of a friendly stranger. The village of Little Penhaven, where Samantha eventually ends up, is a world away from her life in Knoxville, Tennessee – and local farmer Cadan Day is certainly a world away from any man she has met before. But could the Cornish village and Cadan play a part in Samantha’s summer of self-discovery?

MY REVIEW

There’s just something about the way that Angela writes that has a real warmth about it, and I adored this story of Samantha who sees her way of life change overnight all down to a chance meeting with someone at a train station, and it was wonderful to follow her journey and bounce back after being dealt a huge blow to her career as a high flying lawyer.

She hears that she’s lost out on the promotion she’d been dreaming of while in London and feels so despondent, but a conversation with a stranger at a station leads her to board a train to Cornwall and escape the ‘real world’ for a while, until she decides what to do with her life next.  

The little village of Little Penhaven is a world apart from what she is used to and she becomes a bit of a novelty amongst the villagers and soon finds herself renting a cottage and helping out the local jumble sale!

She’s warned off Cadan who she meets there – he’s a local farmer with a bit of a bad reputation, if ou listen to the local gossips, but there’s something about him she finds intriguing – and he feels the same about her.

I loved seeing how well she fitted in to the new way of life and getting to hear all the local gossip. She finds the slower pace of life is just what she needs and it helps her to reassess her life and where she thinks she is heading. She’s not afraid to get her hands dirty too and impresses a  few people with her DIY skills – not what you expect from a city girl used to the corporate life!

With a small village there’s always rumours and hearsay and it’s knowing who to believe, especially when your dealing with someone appear contrary to what you’ve heard!  Cadon is also dealing with family issues and it’s fun to see how his brother is such a different personality to him and how Cadan feels so protective over him.

 Another fabulously rewarding read from this author!!

But when it becomes clear that the wedding might not be going to plan, it’s up to Josh and fellow guest Louise Giles to make sure that Chad and his wife-to-be Maggie get their perfect day.

The Wedding Reject Table:

Once on the reject table, always on the reject table?

When Maggie Taylor, a cake decorator, and Chad Robertson, a lawyer from Nashville Tennessee, meet at a wedding in Cornwall it’s not under the best circumstances.
They have both been assigned to ‘the reject table’, alongside a toxic collection of grumpy great aunts, bitter divorcees and stuffy organists.
Maggie has grown used to being the reject, although when Chad helps her out of a wedding cake disaster she begins to wonder whether the future could hold more for her.
But will Chad be strong enough to deal with the other problems in Maggie’s life? Because a ruined cake isn’t the only issue she has – not by a long shot.
