Now those around her have to face the consequences – and those consequences are not what they expected. Prospero must deal with his own guilt. He was the one who gave Leonie the tools she needed – her life was in his hands. To make the most of what she did, he will have to face up to all the family issues he has avoided for so long. Whatever he chooses to do, someone he loves will be hurt. For Leonie’s sake, is he now strong enough to make the choice he couldn’t make before? The crisis predicted by Lord Gabriel has come and gone. But his task isn’t over. Leonie’s very existence may be out in the open but Gabriel discovers that the past is never what it seems – and nor is the present. How can he use what he now knows to bring together those who have been enemies for as long as anyone can remember? If he fails in this, everything he’s had to do so far will be in vain.
What if your secrets are so dangerous they could destroy the one you love? Is honesty always the best policy?
Leonie may have run away but Prosperowill find her. He loves her and he wants a future with her by his side whatever the consequences. Only when he does find her, he ought to tell her who he really is, outside the monastery. That’ll make her run again. Dare he risk it? But if he doesn’t tell her, someone else may…
Marriage to Prospero is what Leonie wants most and the one thing she knows she can’t have. If he found out what she was really like, what she’d been, what she’d done, he’d despise her and she couldn’t bear that. Better to leave now than live a lie – but it’s harder than she expected. If only…
Gabriel is starting to discover the secrets inherent in Leonie, secrets that not even she knows, secrets that will tear the world apart. And the secrets he is keeping are tearing him apart. How can sacrificing those he loves possibly achieve peace when everything he discovers risks the death of millions?
A girl. A monk. An unthinkable sacrifice. When the choice is between love and life, how can anyone decide?
In a post-apocalyptic future, a girl and a monk, both with extraordinary mental powers, have compelling reasons not to fall in love. But their choices will have consequences for the rest of the world.
After the troubles of his youth, Brother Prospero has found comfort and fulfilment in the monastery. Then he discovers something that forces him to reconsider his whole vocation. How can it possibly be right to leave a life of worship and service for human desire? And if he does leave, will the pressures from his past destroy him?
Orphaned and mistreated, Leonie has found sanctuary and safety at the Abbey. When she comes into contact with Prospero everything spirals out of her control. Everyone she’s ever loved has died. She can’t do that to him. But how can she walk away from the first place she’s truly belonged?
Abbot Gabriel is faced with an impossible choice. He can do nothing and watch the world descend into war. Or he can manipulate events and ensure peace – at the cost of two lives that he is responsible for. Is he strong enough to sacrifice those he loves?
Rachel J Bonner is the author of the four book Choices and Consequences series, of which Weave of Love is the third book. The first, Strand of Faith, was released in November 2018, with Thread of Hope published in May 2019. The final book, Cloth of Grace will be out early in 2020.
Getting a degree in engineering, followed
by a career in accountancy is probably not a conventional path to becoming an
author, particularly in paranormal romance.
Rachel says that, although accountancy isn’t anything like as boring as
everyone thinks, writing is a lot more fun.
When not writing, she can be found walking in the beautiful countryside
near where she lives, which has influenced much of the scenery in her books, or
shooting things with her local archery club.
Shooting targets only, honest.
Nothing to worry about.
She also enjoys swimming, eating chocolate
chip cookies and growing aromatic herbs, especially thyme and rosemary. It’s no coincidence that her heroine likes
the same things.
The Accidental Life Swap by Jennifer Joyce Expected publication Date: September 1st 2019 Publisher: HQ Digital Genre: Women’s Fiction / Romance Pages: 384 Stars: ★★★★★
Sometimes one moment can change your life forever… Rebecca Riley has always been a bit of a pushover. When her glamorous boss, Vanessa, asks her to jump, she doesn’t just ask how high… she asks if her boss would like her to grab a coffee on the way back down! So whilst overseeing the renovation of Vanessa’s beautiful countryside home, the last thing Rebecca ever expected was to be mistaken for her boss – or that she would even consider going along with it! Far away from the bustling city and her boss’s demanding ways, could she pretend to be Vanessa and swap lives, just for a little while?
*** Note: I received e-copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley, in exchange for and honest review. ***
Accidental life swap was lovely countryside romance that revolved around Rebecca who accidentally got a chance to live her boss’ life. It was about believing in yourself, have confidence, stand up for yourself and don’t let others pushover you, and for that you only need inner strength and talent are always there, not a false identity.
Rebecca had degree
in event management but worked as PA for Vanessa, at her event management company.
She was timid, lacked backbone, and let everybody pushover her. I didn’t
appreciate her lies. She could manage the work she was assigned but looking at
those builders and previous project manager’s work, Rebecca needed Vanessa’s
confidence and intimidating demeanor. In achieving what she wanted, she hurt
friends. But she developed into a confident and strong person by the end of the
book. I must say she was very talented, she just didn’t get opportunity to
prove her worth before (I should say she didn’t have courage to take the
opportunity) and when she got her chance she rocked. I actually liked the way
she rectified her mistakes.
I’m fiery female fan and she was
far from that. But I know there might be some who are like her. Let me tell you
her lack of confidence didn’t make her weak, she was just nice and didn’t know
how to stand up for herself.
Oliver was nice
throughout the book. He didn’t hesitate in speaking his mind. Fake Vanessa’s
intimidating demeanor didn’t affect him and I like him for that. I also liked
his childish side, his board game obsession and confessions while playing it.
sister, and her animal sanctuary were amazing. I liked Stacey’s fiery nature.
You wouldn’t want to be on her bad side but would definitely love her as your
Vanessa was rich,
selfish, horrible, and a tyrant boss. She did all in her power to get what she
wanted and even fired her staff unreasonably. But her transformation at the end
was biggest surprise.
I liked all builders and people of Little Heaton. All characters were well developed and well described.
What I Liked-
Book was beautifully narrated in meek Rebecca’s voice which was not
that refreshing but definitely realistic.
Writing was great, easy to read and
follow with amazing setting.
Picturesque countryside, Little Heaton, Vanessa’s holiday home and animal
sanctuary took the center stage here. You cannot not notice quirky animals and
their name in this book especially those feathery chickens and wandering donkey.
I grew to love them all along with characters. When we are in countryside, how
can we forget gossips and close relationship between people… and romance. There
was right amount of everything friendship and betrayal, family drama, heartbreak
Plot was equally
interesting. Book started with
Rebecca’s inner rant on how grimy and disrespectful her flatmate was but all in
her head. She never, couldn’t confront him or anyone. You seeing that first
paragraph of synopsis? It exactly describes Rebecca. She couldn’t even say no
to Vanessa when she asked her to oversee her holiday home renovation in impossibly
tight deadline. When she reached countryside and at Vanessa’s home, she met
builders who mistaken her and thought she was Vanessa. She couldn’t rectify it quickly, in fact she
enjoyed the respect she got, influence she could have on workers, and
confidence she channeled through her mistaken identity but then she didn’t plan
to fall for one of the builders and thus started all the mess.
I thought this false identity
cannot last long, the game will be up pretty soon but I was surprised to see
Rebecca managed to keep it secret for so long! She had many occasions to reveal
the truth, but she kept the dodging it as she desperately wanted to finish the
job within timeline, get a promotion and be in the team of event management-her
Rebecca and Oliver’s slowly growing friendship and romance was kind of cute. Who would keep playing board games rather than
taking their fantasy for each other one level up! But we know them best when
they played these board games, we see their other side that they managed to
keep hidden from others. Rebecca’s problems with her family and Oliver’s past
love life was among those hidden side.
Expanding idea of animal
sanctuary, unexpected visits to check the progress of refurbishment, office
gossips and some disappointing news made the story interesting. Some twists in
the second half, though predictable, were quiet good. I could guess what will
happened next most of the time but I must say I couldn’t guess that twist in
Climax was intriguing. I liked
Rebecca’s ideas and the way things were set up. That last visit from Vanessa
and all events afterwards were wrapped nicely. End was perfect. Epilogue was
If you ignore predictability and Rebecca’s
lack of confidence, which was tiny lil bit annoying in the beginning, this
story is definitely fun and enjoyable.
Overall, it was fun, light-hearted, fast paced and cute countryside romance. This book checked all the boxes I want in Women’s Fiction and Romance. Thumbs up!
What do you think about the book and my review? Have you read this book already or any book by the same author before? Are you going to add it to TBR? Have you read any book falling in this genre or theme? Do you like fiery heroine or meek one? Recommend me you favorite countryside romance.

Deserve to Die is a compelling psychological thriller with a heart-stopping ending that will keep you gripped until the early hours. Perfect for fans of K. L. Slater, Teresa Driscoll and Andrew Hart.
*** Note: I received e-copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley, in exchange for and honest review. ***
Deserve To Die was tense, spine chilling, unnerving, addictive and intriguing (yes I’m going to put all synonyms here because they are so apt in describing the book) psychological thriller that revolved around happily married and happily living couple Dom-Stacey and not-so-happy Stacey who was after them with mission to destroy their life. It was about family love, betrayal, mistrust, and revenge.
were simply amazing, especially villain.
Tamara– She gave bad vibes from the very beginning.
Hurricane of disaster, manipulating horrible witch, it all got one new word-
Tamara. She was orderly, calculative, and a terrific planner with beauty and
brain. She had everything you would want in villain. Her narration was most
frightening in whole book.
Stacey was author children’s book. She was
realistic, sensitive, and not too strong but one should not underestimate her
when it comes to her kids and husband. You can easily place yourself in her
situation and could see how precisely her actions and reaction were written. I
like how mom turns to supermom when their kids are in trouble. I liked the way
she fought back. She was great in the book.
Let’s not talk about husband here, because I was not happy with his actions. He should be more cautious while hiring her. What happened to employee background check?! I know Tamara was so believable but that’s no excuse. Other side characters were also good.
What I liked-
great. I liked author’s style the way she kept the nervousness alive from the
very first page. Book was flawlessly written in first person narrative from
Stacey and Tamara’s POV, one heroine, one villain who played their role
terrifically. I liked the town, mom gossips and children’s stories in this
just brilliant. Book started with Tamara getting info about SAID, Dominic’s
company, from its account director and putting forward her plan. It was blood
chilling to read her callous plan and act. All I could think about was, why?
What she had against Dominic? Or Stacey? Was it money, or something else? Stacey’s
happy moments of signing contract with biggest publisher didn’t stay long when
Tamara encroached in her life.
As I read
more the more I disgusted felt towards Tamara, I was holding breath every time
she executed her sinister plan, I felt so bad for Stacey and wanted to drag her
out of this book. I kept thinking why Tamara is targeting this particular family.
Is it her one of the game, destroy families and get all the money or something else?
I couldn’t figure out the real reason until last 20% of the book.
somewhat ‘The Breakdown’ vibe, disbelieving husband, protagonist questioning
her own sanity, all the bad things coming from all directions and where is her
best friend all this time? But I’m sure husband doesn’t have anything to do
And this was
just the first half. I couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen next. You
can see from series of questions how intriguing this book was. You might think
you know where this will end and what might be the reason behind Tamara’s game
but I tell you it was not that simple. It was getting even thrilling and darker
in second half.
constant tense and anxious feel that didn’t die until the end. Twist and turn
were surprising, I couldn’t guess Stacey and Tamara’s next step. At some point
I thought things would get worse, Tamara played so perfectly that I couldn’t
see how Stacey was going to prove her point.
came the revelation, the reason behind all these terrifying plan. I liked those
backstories that cleared the fog of uncertainty. Climax was exciting. I was
sitting on the edge chewing my nails till the end. I must say I wanted closure
but I liked the way end was concluded. I’m sure I’m going to check out other
books by author.
I’m glad I read author’s note in the end. All kid’s stories in this book were her own creation and I’m off to check author’s website where there is more info on them.
Overall, it was tense, gripping, and clever psychological thriller with brilliant plot and characters. I highly recommend this book.
What do you think about the book and my review? Have you read this book already or any book by the same author before? Are you going to add it to TBR? Which psychological thriller you like most or which one has most terrifying villain?
Hello Readers! I hope you all had wonderful week. My week was comparatively good. I read 2 books, reviewed 2 I read previous week and spent weekend watching movies, enjoying time with my daughter.
Not so good thing, I was supposed to receive a book which was sent through USPS and tracking goes until July end when it entered India. It should reach my doorstep by now but I haven’t received it yet! Some relatives are really annoying. I’m raising my daughter as best as I can, her growth is great as per doctor, still they keep giving their dos and don’ts advises that more feel like questioning my ways! I try to ignore them but it’s really difficult when they keep pestering unceasingly.
Last Week I Read-
I will review A summer To Remember next month during blog tour for this book. Review of Deserve To Die will be up tomorrow.
Sometimes one moment can change your life forever… Rebecca Riley has always been a bit of a pushover. When her glamorous boss, Vanessa, asks her to jump, she doesn’t just ask how high… she asks if her boss would like her to grab a coffee on the way back down!
So whilst overseeing the renovation of Vanessa’s beautiful countryside home, the last thing Rebecca ever expected was to be mistaken for her boss – or that she would even consider going along with it! Far away from the bustling city and her boss’s demanding ways, could she pretend to be Vanessa and swap lives, just for a little while?
I needed something light to suppress that tense anxious feeling of Deserve to Die. And this looked just perfect.
Next This Week-
Innocent? When Carrie was accused of brutally murdering her husband’s lover, she denied it. She denied it when they arrested her, when they put her in front of a jury, and when they sent her to prison.

Tess Gilroy has devoted her life to righting wrongs. Through her job for Innocence UK, a charity which takes on alleged miscarriages of justice, she works tirelessly to uncover the truth. But when she is asked to take Carrie’s case, Tess realises that if she is to help this woman, she must risk uncovering the secrets she has struggled a lifetime to hide . . .
