I received a copy of this book from Crumps Barn Studio in return for an honest review.

My Thoughts…

This story will appeal to people who share their lives with cats as it succinctly captures cat behaviour in vivid illustrations and text. Inspired by a real-life occurrence, this follows the life of a family cat and what happens when he falls ill. It is upbeat and humorous, and the illustrations vividly tell the story too.

It is engaging reading for young people as it shows that medicine, although often unpleasant, does a worthwhile job. The focus is on the cat’s antics, and it’s a humorous read.

My Thoughts…

Full of bright illustrations, this lovely book shows young readers the importance of wildflowers to the ecosystem. It is a fantasy tale about flowers and bees with a relevant message about preserving nature and saving the planet.

Inspired by a real-life environmentalist and his garden, the story is easy to read and understand. It will provoke questions about the environment.

My Thoughts…

This fun book has colourful comic illustrations that complement the verse. Intended as a children’s book of poetry, it will also appeal to an older generation as it has a classic style. The poems are of various lengths and make you smile. The picture book is beautifully presented and would make a lovely gift.

Kissing Charlie Elsa Winckler 4* Review @elsawinckler @InkSpellPublish #BookReview #Romance #smalltown #Montana #unexpectedlove #KissingCharlie

One Kiss Will Change Their Lives Forever

Bowen therapist Charlie Wilson is not interested in men or relationships. Her only concern is making sure her sister Lindsay is safe.

But then billionaire Logan Johnson walks into her rooms and stirs powerful feelings inside of her. Logan’s perfectly knotted tie is a clear indication free-spirit Charlie should steer clear of him at all costs.

They are complete opposites, so why does he keep coming back to see her?

My Thoughts…

This is a charming small-town romance with a likeable couple and a good cast of supporting characters. The mix of sweet and sensual works as the emotional engagement stems from passion rather than friendship. This is an easy, enjoyable read, and I look forward to reading the rest of the series.
