Tuscan Dreams at the Cornish Confetti Agency: A gorgeously uplifting romantic comedy

by Daisy James  

The Cornish Confetti Agency is heading to Tuscany!

When Lexie Harrington is asked to choreograph a last-minute wedding for celebrity chef Nico Moretti and his fiancée Isla Sanderson, she can’t wait to get started, especially as the event of the year is set to take place at the spectacular Villa Fiore in the glorious, sun-soaked countryside just outside Florence. With its powder-pink façade, green-painted shutters and battalion of life-sized marble statues, it’s the perfect location for the intimate wedding the bride and groom want, away from the prying eyes of the paparazzi.

With handsome wedding columnist-turned-TV scriptwriter, Theo Barker, by her side, and quirky waistcoat-loving Jasper Curtis in the role of usher, Lexie’s confident that this time she’ll be able to deliver the glamourous, sophisticated, and most of all, hassle-free wedding the happy couple deserve; no pirate patches on family portraits, no confetti-filled hairdryers, and definitely no anchovies crammed into the air vents of the best man’s beloved Porsche.

But this is The Cornish Confetti Agency, and the words ‘straightforward’ and ‘stress-free’ do not feature in the promotional brochure.  So when the Lexie discovers the Michelangelo-esque marble statues modelling a new line in paper thongs, and the groom’s swimwear has been substituted for something a little more risqué, she must once again turn amateur detective and unravel the mystery before the wedding becomes a Florentine fiasco.

A perfect Tuscan wedding?

Is there such a thing for The Cornish Confetti Agency?

A sun-filled, uplifting story perfect for the summer holidays, and the fifth book in the Cornish Confetti series, that can also be read as a standalone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Twisty and intruiging

Really enjoyed this – although found it a bit disconcerting! Ever thought you knew someone and then found out you had no idea? This book is like that. Great page turner and enjoyable main characters. It’s a book that you want to get back to when you have to put it down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great page-turner, with twists I hadn’t imagined.

An intriguing read with characters whose mysteries are revealed bit by bit all the way through the book. I was an emotional wreck by the end. Loved it.

The Marquess’s Christmas Runaway (Reluctant Brides Book 3)

By Josie Bonham

Max, Marquess of Hargreaves, is in urgent need of a wife. Searching for a bride is a daunting prospect with seven sisters all eager to help.

Finding the sort of bride he is likely to be happy with won’t be easy for the man who defied the rules of gentlemanly conduct by breaking his betrothal a decade before. Careful parents will look at him askance after that scandal and he dreads being trapped by another woman only interested in his wealth and position.

Desperate to escape a forced marriage, Georgie Sherborne runs away from her guardian on a snowy morning days before her twenty first birthday. Max rescues her and offers marriage to save her reputation and solve his problem. The marriage starts well but the odd attitude of Max’s housekeeper towards Georgie makes him wonder if he has been trapped after all.

Stolen kisses, a Christmas Eve wedding and the joy of a traditional family Christmas all feature in this heartwarming Regency romance.

Perfect for readers of Mary Balogh, Stephanie Laurens, Julia Quinn, Georgette Heyer and Jane Austen.

HAPPY READING! 😊

Praise for Josie Bonham’s Reluctant Brides series….

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this engaging Regency read

This is a confident and well written debut novel. I loved this story of how Eliza reluctantly falls for the tall, ex-army Major Overton. Both bring bad previous experiences to their encounters and have to overcome their initial prejudices before they can see each other in their true light. I loved this gripping and engaging story of the slow unfolding of their romance. The excellent period detail is subtly woven into the background and I can’t wait to read the next one in this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything you could want from a Georgian-era romance!

This has everything you could ask for from a cracking Georgian-era romance. A feisty heroine, a dashing hero recently retired from the army, the glitter of London high society, and a dastardly villain casting a shadow over the growing romance at the centre of the story. Highly recommended for fans of the genre!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-read for historical romance fans

This is another fantastic Georgian-era love story from Josie Bonham. I really enjoyed this slow-burn romance with both beautiful countryside and London settings both high evocative of the period. The characters are attractive and interesting, and you quickly root for Kitty and Luke to be happy. Another must-read for historical romance fans!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic regency period romance

The Viscounts Convenient Bride is a well written, slow burning regency period romance that at times followed a similar pattern to the first book but, that did not detract from the story or my enjoyment at all.
Although this is the second book of the series, and some of the characters feature in the first book, all the characters are strong, loveable, and well developed enough for it to be read as either part of the series or a stand-alone novel.
There were some good twists that kept you guessing but deep down you knew that the two main characters Luke and Kitty were meant for each other and that they would get their happy ever after.
It was a thoroughly enjoyable easy read that I struggled to put down. I can’t wait for the next in the series now.

Belus Corp, the ‘savior’ of humanity during the Melter War whisk the afflicted away; including Bobbie’s grandmother. But Bobbie is terrified. The ‘Rejuvenees’ are getting younger but they are also becoming increasingly aggressive, uncontrollably so.

Review (via Amazon UK)….

5.0 out of 5 stars Rejuvenation: Where fact and fiction merge!

If you need a gripping read, then look no further than ‘Rejuvenation’ by Byddi Lee.
The dystopian plot is set in a not too distant future, in our very own surroundings of Belfast, Armagh and the Mountains of Mourne. The Melter Wars have altered life as we know it, but Byddi’s carefully crafted new world, and her unique brand of storytelling will sweep you along on its journey as she creates a stable platform for a solid plot and strong characterization.
You will feel for these individuals on a personal level. The lead character, Bobbie, carries our concerns on her strong shoulders, and yet there’s a vulnerability to her that strikes a chord when it comes to family, especially her younger sister, and her feisty grandmother.
The importance of family in this story, especially the elderly in the community who are prone to this ‘viral attack’, is particularly relevant and poignant as we find ourselves living through a real-life pandemic in 2020, and the most unprecedented of global times, where our elderly are indeed the most vulnerable in society.
The science behind this fiction gives us something gritty to chew on and mull over, but begs of us questions that keep us guessing, even right at the end, leading us beautifully towards book two. Cannot wait Byddi. Simply cannot wait!
Thankyou Byddi Lee for giving us ‘Rejuvenation’.

Where There’s A Will, There’s A Woman by Mary Mae Lewis @MaryMaeLewis1

Bowen’s Book Publicity is proud to promote….

Where There’s A Will, There’s A Woman

By Mary Mae Lewis

As a teenager, Kath Tyler dreamt of leaving her working-class life behind her and living a more upwardly-mobile one. Born and brought up in the Potteries, she was thrilled to meet gifted engineer, Robert Llewellyn, a schoolteacher based in London.

What Kath had not bargained for though was the eccentric family that she was taking on after marrying Rob: a dotty antiques dealer, a wayward son, a daughter who dabbled in the Dark Arts and a famous Welsh artist – they all tested Kath’s patience and increased her wanderlust.

Intrigued by the promise of a life abroad, the young couple journey to exotic lands; their eventual dream is to be one of the Ten Pound Poms.

Tragedy strikes though and the call of family brings Kath home to the Potteries once more; her shock loss is only tempered by the blossoming of her journalist flair.

Where There’s A Will, There’s A Woman is a powerful and emotional saga that starts in the Swinging Sixties and travels with the reader to the present day. It weaves around the lives and loves of two families who might have been worlds apart, but were brought together by the feisty determination of a Midlands girl, who knew how to smooth over troubled waters.

But… will Kath’s fire and grit be enough to solve two Llewellyn family mysteries?
Time will tell…
