Book Review: It Only Takes A Minute by Sasha Lane

Book Review: It Only Takes A Minute by Sasha Lane

Being a big fan of chick-lit and rom-coms, I’m always on the lookout for something new within those genres. One of the best things about being part of tour groups is that sometimes I’ll be asked about a title that I’ve never heard of but sounds perfect to me. It Only Takes a Minute was one of those.

Kiera has earned a 4-week sabbatical after years of working at the bank. So what does she do with it? Impulsively decides to fly out on holiday alone. She’s hoping for relaxation and exploration, but she winds up discovering a lot more as she wanders around under the sun.

Blog Tour: One Good Thing by Alexandra Potter

Blog Tour: One Good Thing by Alexandra Potter

A few years ago, I got into Alexandra Potter for a bit. I read a lot of her backlist and enjoyed them. And then I reached a point where I wasn’t being drawn to her books anymore. That changed when I read the summary of One Good Thing. Which, I won’t lie, I was surprised as this is a chick-lit novel that reads a lot older than I usually prefer and utilises multiple perspectives. And yet, I really enjoyed it. It was what I hoped it would be. I was lucky to get an early e-book copy to read of this through Random Things Tours, so thanks so much to Anne!

One Good Thing mostly follows Liv, a forty-something woman who has just gotten divorced from her cheating husband and decides she wants a fresh start in Yorkshire. Her new house becomes a building site – literally – and Liv realises that she has to find herself before she can really move on. By finding good things, from a dog to new friends and even helping out her neighbours, she finds joy again.

Blog Tour: The Agathas by Kathleen Glasgow and Liz Lawson

Blog Tour: The Agathas by Kathleen Glasgow and Liz Lawson

I love a good YA mystery or thriller, and this was a book that sounded so good. The Agathas is a mystery very inspired by the works of Agatha Christie. I won’t pretend to be an Agatha Christie fan myself. Honestly, years of seeing the same episodes of Poirot and Miss Marple repeatedly, thanks to my Mum, derailed any interest I might have had in them. But this book sounded like so much fun, and I’m glad that I asked to be part of this tour. Thanks again to Anne at Random Things Tours for allowing me to participate!

This book follows two teens – Alice and Iris, who couldn’t live more different lives. Alice needs to stay out of trouble after disappearing a few months ago, and Iris just needs to get out of town. Iris is hired to tutor Alice, but after a girl disappears, Alice convinces Iris to help her look into the case. When the girl then turns up murdered, they realise that there may be a lot of secrets out there that they need to uncover.

Blog Tour: King of Battle And Blood by Scarlett St. Clair

Blog Tour: King of Battle And Blood by Scarlett St. Clair

I’m not exactly someone known for reading a lot of smutty romance, but when a book sounds this good. I can’t resist. I knew what I was in for when I picked this book up, and I was excited for it anyway. I was lucky enough to be sent a copy of this book thanks to the very lovely team at Black Crow PR and this tour has been put together by Random Things Tours. A big thank you to the both of them.

King of Battle and Blood is an adult fantasy romance. It follows a princess called Isolde, who when her country is entered by the vampire King, Adrian, agrees to be his wife for the sake of ending the upcoming war. She assumes she’ll fear him, but soon she’s more scared of how attracted she is to him and her growing understanding of the vampires than she is anything else.
