by SE Hall
I am a big SE Hall fan so I was excited to get a new one from her.  And the cover is HOT!!!!

After eight years, Henley Calvert is headed home. Back to the family farm and small town she left behind, never to be thought of again.

Too much regret and shame to bear.

But she’s the only one left to see to her family’s legacy, so she must return to Ashfall and face all the ghosts that haunt her.


Gatlin Holt, the family farmhand, awaits her arrival, and lends a hand—in more ways than one. He reacquaints Henley with the lay of the land while helping her heal her soul with a new outlook on life.

Yet every time she thinks some peace may be within reach, Henley hits another roadblock. The biggest of which is Keaton Cash—her childhood nemesis who owns the farm next door.


And no, it’s not a love triangle. That’s impossible when Henley’s heart is closed, incapable of love.  

I know this says it is not a triangle, but at first I really thought it was.  It doesn't take long to figure out it's not.  It took me awhile to come around to Henley.  She starts off very brash and rough.  Once we got some insight into her we figure out why she is that way.  This is one of those stories where you can't put it down because you have to know where it's going.  

 There is a sexy, dirty talking cowboy, and a super wise cowboy you just want to hug, but I'm not going to tell you which is which!  There is a crazy crazy twist at the end!!  I highly recommend this one.  I promise you will be surprised!

Spiralling Skywards
Falling Book 1
by Lesley Jones
I am a huge fan of this author so I was excited to read this new one.  However, she makes me nervous too, if you have read Carnage you know why!!  So this is Book 1, but it does not end in a cliffy.  
It only takes one defining moment.
One look.
One dance.
One conversation.
Sarah knows from the second she meets Liam that their connection is more than just instant attraction. It’s deep, it’s consuming, and has the potential to be the real thing. But true love comes at a price.
Fuelled by Liam's past, Sarah's issues, and a messy web of family ties, business partnerships, and exes, the combined forces threaten to snuff out their new found relationship. Will that spark be smothered by outside forces? Or will they be carried like smoke from the ashes and sent spiralling skywards?

I have always liked the way that Lesley Jones writes.   Her writing is heartfelt, sometimes heart breaking, and funny.  She uses a ton of British/Australian slang, and I sometimes have to look them up, but I love it!  
Liam Delaney was a super sexy rugged Australian and I loved him from the start.  He fell for Sarah immediately.  And Sarah Carter was an innocent sweet girl that couldn't believe Liam wanted her.  
This is Book 1, but does end in a cliffhanger.  It is full of angst, and there is a character that you will hate.  I can't wait to see what she does with Book 2.  Book 2 will be out later this year, so not a super long wait!!
