Make Me Disappear by Jessica Payne

About the book:

By the time I realized the truth about Daniel it was too late. But the truth about me? He never saw that coming…
Dr Daniel Ashcroft was perfect: handsome, romantic, protective. I thought I was so lucky.
But then I heard the rumors about his previous girlfriend, that she had vanished without a trace. That’s when I found the cameras in my apartment.

I was trapped. Daniel made it clear I couldn’t leave him, not without risking everyone I loved. I had to disappear, so I arranged my own kidnapping.
I should have known Daniel would never let me get away that easily. But he could never have predicted what I’d do next…

The It Girl by Ruth Ware

 About the book: 

Pub date: July 12th

April Coutts-Cliveden was the first person Hannah Jones met at Oxford.

Vivacious, bright, occasionally vicious, and the ultimate It girl, she quickly pulled Hannah into her dazzling orbit. Together, they developed a group of devoted and inseparable friends—Will, Hugh, Ryan, and Emily—during their first term. By the end of the second, April was dead.

Now, a decade later, Hannah and Will are expecting their first child, and the man convicted of killing April, former Oxford porter John Neville, has died in prison. Relieved to have finally put the past behind her, Hannah’s world is rocked when a young journalist comes knocking and presents new evidence that Neville may have been innocent. As Hannah reconnects with old friends and delves deeper into the mystery of April’s death, she realizes that the friends she thought she knew all have something to hide…including a murder.

Mustique Island by Sarah McCoy

Pub date: May 10, 2022

About The Book:

It’s January 1972 but the sun is white hot when Willy May Michael’s boat first kisses the dock of Mustique Island. Tucked into the southernmost curve of the Caribbean, Mustique is a private island that has become a haven for the wealthy and privileged. Its owner is the eccentric British playboy Colin Tennant, who is determined to turn this speck of white sand into a luxurious neo-colonial retreat for his rich friends and into a royal court in exile for the Queen’s rebellious sister, Princess Margaret—one where Her Royal Highness can skinny dip, party, and entertain lovers away from the public eye.

Willy May, a former beauty queen from Texas—who is also no stranger to marital scandals—seeks out Mustique for its peaceful isolation. Determined to rebuild her life and her relationships with her two daughters, Hilly, a model, and Joanne, a musician, she constructs a fanciful white beach house across the island from Princess Margaret—and finds herself pulled into the island’s inner circle of aristocrats, rock stars, and hangers-on.

When Willy May’s daughters arrive, they discover that beneath its veneer of decadence, Mustique has a dark side, and like sand caught in the undertow, their mother-daughter story will shift and resettle in ways they never could have imagined. 


Imagine this.. it’s the early 70’s ☮️…a private Caribbean island that is invitation only…if you would like to live there you must be approved…by the owners..😬

There are 3 requirements: Must be wealthy πŸ’° …attractive πŸ‘±‍♀️πŸ‘ …and able to keep your lips sealed 🀐..What happens at Mustique Island 🏝 stays there! 🀫

Your neighbor is a Princess πŸ‘Έ… your other neighbor is a rock star… did someone say Mick??? Yes..that Mick!! 😍😳🀭

Well this all fit the bill for a newly divoriced Willy May. After a messy divorce.. and the death of her ex husband..πŸ€”πŸ˜¬…Willie Mae was ready to escape the speculations and gossip. Luckily she had an “in” to Mustique Island and off she went. 🏝

This book was fascinating!! I will admit I had never heard of Mustique Island 🏝 so I immediately hit Google after reading this. Wow!! I highly recommend looking this up! Not only is the island gorgeous… but the history is amazing!! It sounds like @sarahmmccoy captured it perfectly!! 😍

So if you too want to wisk away to Mustique Island 🏝… you can!! Publication date was May 10th!! 🏝🐒🍹

🏝🏝🏝 Would you be able to live on a private island?? Have you traveled 🧳 to somewhere exotic like this?? How gorgeous is this cover?!! Loveee it!!! ❤️❤️❤️

As Seen On TV by Meredith Schorr

 About the book:

Fans of the Hallmark Channel and Gilmore Girls will adore this delightful rom‑com about a city girl who goes in search of small-town happiness, only to discover life—and love—are nothing like the TV movies.

Emerging journalist Adina Gellar is done with dating in New York City. If she’s learned anything from made-for-TV romance movies, it’s that she’ll find love in a small town—the kind with harvest festivals, delightful but quirky characters, and scores of delectable single dudes. So when a big-city real estate magnate targets tiny Pleasant Hollow for development, Adi knows she’s found the perfect story—one that will earn her a position at a coveted online magazine, so she can finally start adulting for real . . . and maybe even find her dream man in the process. 

Only Pleasant Hollow isn’t exactly “pleasant.” There’s no charming bakery, no quaint seasonal festivals, and the residents are more ambivalent than welcoming. The only upside is Finn Adams, who’s more mouthwatering than the homemade cherry pie Adi can’t seem to find—even if he does work for the company she’d hoped to bring down. Suddenly Adi has to wonder if maybe TV got it all wrong after all. But will following her heart mean losing her chance to break into the big time?


❤️ OMGGG thank you @readforeverpub for this adorable book!! I was sold at - Hallmark and Gilmore Girls vibe.. sign this girl up!! πŸ™‹‍♀️

So Adi lives in NYC…a struggling writer she has found her story… a town outside of NYC that she is determined is a “Hallmark town.” Cute little diners… friendly people… lots of cute available guys… but no…πŸ₯ΊπŸ˜­She is going to get smacked with reality that.. well that is not reality.πŸ˜‚

Okay so… as soon as I started reading this.. I got excited and told both my husband and mom… they laughed and laughed and laughed. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜« They said OMG you are Adi!! πŸ˜‚ I am.🀷‍♀️ I have googled - what town is used in a Hallmark movie ?🍿 I have begged both to move.🀷‍♀️ As they both try to explain… umm no..

So Adi girl… I get ya!! πŸ™ŒπŸ˜˜ I loved her story of meeting her small town hottie Finn… or is he??? 😏…Her meet cute in the lobby and everything else that she gets herself into. I know Adi was hoping her trip to Pleasant Hollow was in the Fall as that is the best.. all the pumpkin πŸŽƒ festivals..which definitely were NOT happening in Pleasant Hollow.πŸ˜‚

Well as it is almost time for Christmas in July.. πŸŽ„ .. I know myself and Adi will be two happy campers. πŸΏπŸ“ΊπŸŽ„

Okay so bottom line… I loved this book!! Even if you dont love Hallmark ❤️… it’s an adorable rom com that will entertain your socks 🧦 off! If you do love Hallmark..well then you are just going to love it even more!! #teamadiandfinn ❤️

❤️❤️ Do you love a small town story?? Do you live in one? Is there fresh pie and Fall festivals? Would you want to live in one? Is this book on your list??

I think I would like the idea but I would miss my shopping πŸ› options! πŸ˜‚πŸ€·‍♀️
