The Vintage Village Bake Off by Judy Leigh #Review

  Here we are with another amusing romcom by Judy Leigh . The Vintage Village Bake Off was published by Boldwood Books on December 4th. Now in his seventies, Robert Parkin is stunned to find himself the unlikely sex symbol of the village gardening club. Living in happy solitude with his cat Isaac Mewton in the Devon village of Millbrook, entertained by his mischievous chickens and goats, Robert has never figured out the rules of romance. But as the local ladies vie for his company, it soon becomes clear that Robert's Victoria Sponge cake is the lure, and as his baking prowess grows, so does his confidence. Cheesecakes, meringues, puddings, Robert can do it all, but his real masterpieces are his scones - ginger, rosemary, coconut, fruit, his recipes are inspired and soon come to the attention of the local media. Which county does the best cream tea - Devon or Cornwall? It's time for an age-old debate to be settled with a competition. Robert's sisters Bunty and Ha

Greek Millionaire, Unruly Wife by Sun Chara ** Blog Tour Review & Giveaway** #YearOfSun

Today Sun Chara's contemporary romance, Greek Millionaire, Unruly Wife is featured on Books, Life and Everything. There is also a  great International Giveaway  for you to enter- details are at the foot of this post. 

A tempestuous fling…a marriage…a betrayal?

When Michalis Leonadis’ bride jumps ship at the first sign of rough waters, he’s annoyed. When she costs him a marriage and a billion-dollar deal, he’s furious; but when he discovers she ditched him whilst harboring a secret…he’s out for revenge.

Ex-model, Julia Armstrong gave up everything for Michalis but when she catches him with another woman, crushed, she jets out of his life. The proud Greek blasts back into her world seeking retribution—in exchange for a divorce, he demands she relinquish the one thing she cannot. Her daughter. Only one other bargaining chip remains…Julia herself.

 My Thoughts
This novel sizzles from start to finish and for people who enjoy their romance with a great dollop of sexiness, it will hit the mark. I don't read many books from this genre, but stepped out of my comfort zone and gave it a go, despite its rather clumsy title. It is a fairly short, enjoyable read although the lack of communication between Julia and Michalis did get rather frustrating as they seemed to deliberately misunderstand each other!

    The two protagonists are stubborn, proud and volatile which makes for some explosive scenes between them. There were few surprises in the plot as the reader seems to be able to deduce what has happened even if they can't but if you are after an escapist read with some stunning settings, you will enjoy it immensely.

In short: contemporary romance with attitude.
