Hello Readers! I hope you had great week. Last week had been amazing. I was nominated for #2020BOOKBLOGGERAWARDS as supportive blogger by The Book Princess Reviews.

What I read last week-
Don’t Turn Around by Jessica Barry
I saw mixed reviews on this but this turned out better than I expected. I wasn’t exactly expecting the theme of abortion and women’s feeling about it and prolife protestors. Climax was a bit implausible but overall I enjoyed reading this. Review will be up on 29th.
Cynthia Smart’s Midwife Crisis by Liz Davies
Am I reading lot of book about moms or pregnancy and topics around it? Maybe and I enjoy them. This was lovely and refreshing. Cynthia pregnant at age 44 is ambitious woman who wanted CEO position of her boss, boss doesn’t tolerate sick employee and even less pregnant/family women at higher position and moreover her brought new rival for the same position on board who happed to be so handsome and nice. It was interesting to see how Cynthia was going to cope with all these things and what will she do about her situation.
Rags-to-Riches Wife by Catherine Tinley
Forbidden romance, dresses, estates, and family drama – That’s I need to enjoy historical fiction. I liked Jane. Losing her father, suffering days she and her mother endured after his death till they found employer and their life as servant, sudden unexpected change in life when her estranged grandfather found her was all narrated beautifully. Twist and turns were good and I loved how things turned out at the end. End was bit stretched but I want read more historical romance after this.
Next I’ll be reading-
Judenrein by Harold Benjamin
Zack Gurevitz has had a checkered past. A Yeshiva boy, turned Green Beret, turned junkie, excommunicated by his one-time faith and now the potential savior of people he doesn’t even like.
As a white supremacist movement stealthily takes the reins of power in America, it is again the Jews who are made out as scapegoats. Stripped of wealth and citizenship, they are made to live in 21st century ghettos that hark back to a sinister and murky past that many had thought would never return.
But things are about to get much worse. With the revealing of a planned terror attack that will place the blame firmly at Jewish feet and condemn millions to death, Zack is contacted by Jewish leaders in Detroit, begging for his help.
Reluctantly he agrees and before long he is mired in a conspiracy that will have far reaching consequences for his country, the Jewish population and even his own sanity.
As the clock ticks down, can Zack find a way to avert a looming disaster? Who is behind the conspiracy? And can he really trust anyone?
Looks like it is about supremacy and anti-Semitic. I haven’t read reviews on this I downloaded this from NetGalley after I got request from author. It sounds interesting dystopia thriller.
As Luck Would Have It by Zoe May
A hilarious and charming read that had me turning the pages until I’d devoured the whole book in one sitting… Sweet, heart-warming and full of gorgeously escapist descriptions… A must-read.’ Daily Express, 5 stars
Natalie Jackson might keep up appearances on Instagram, but in reality her fiancé has just jilted her after the birth of their baby and she’s moved back in with her mum. Life isn’t exactly going to plan!
So when she enters the village raffle for the holiday of a lifetime, she thinks she has no chance of winning. But her name is pulled out – and, as luck would have it, so is a ticket bought by her childhood nemesis: Will Brimble.
Surely a romantic holiday for two is the worst idea ever…right?
Perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella, Sophie Ranald and Lindsey Kelk.
This will be my 4th book by Zoe May and I’m expecting this to be as entertaining as previous books I read. I can’t wait to see how this holiday is going to turn out for Natalie.
Girls of Summer by Nancy Thayer
From star-crossed matches to unexpected love triangles, summer on Nantucket always holds the promise of romance in this sensational novel from New York Times bestselling author Nancy Thayer.
Lisa Hudson feels more alive than she has in a long time after hiring hunky carpenter Mack Whitney to renovate her old Nantucket home. There’s no denying the spark growing between them–despite the fact that Mack is ten years her junior. But her twentysomething children, Juliet and Theo, on the island for the summer, worry that the new relationship will only lead to Lisa’s heartbreak.
Yet Juliet and Theo are in for tangled love stories all their own. When dreamy Cooper Hastings moves to the island to pursue a new environmental venture, Juliet feels an unwelcome attraction, her rocky romantic history pushing her to steer clear of love. Theo only has eyes for Mack’s daughter, Bethany, with whom he was bound by an unspeakable tragedy in high school–but can they overcome their past? By August, when an impending storm threatens to shatter the peace of the golden island, everyone discovers what they can and cannot control. Nancy Thayer dazzles again with this new tale of a magical summer.
This is going to be simultaneous read and last book I received in May. I have seen positive review on this one so I’m excited to read this.
