I enjoyed The Proposal by Karin Thompson.
It was an easy read, which kept me engrossed in the lives of Derek and Emily right from the beginning, hoping that everything would all work out in the end. Honestly, I had mixed feelings about the character of Derek's mother. Still, halfway through the story, I found myself changing how I felt for her and emotionally invested in the best outcome for her too.

I found it a great read that I would highly recommend!  ME

 Resthaven Cottage - Book 1 in the series

Not your average B&B

Meddling is Jillian Osborne’s middle name. Well, it’s not, but it should be.

Running a B&B with the love of her life beside her is a dream come true for Peter and Jillian Osborne. Resthaven Cottage’s idyllic location close to the sea and all the comforts of home offers an exceptional stay for guests, many of whom are struggling with life events, troubles, and issues.

Issues that Jillian knows just how to solve… even if maybe she shouldn’t.

But her ways help the guests that come to stay, and as secrets, sketchy pasts, and truths come out, people’s lives change. And at the heart of everything, Jillian works hard to solve everything her guests face, even things the B&B doesn’t offer. Oh, don’t ignore Bess, their dog. She can sniff out hurt from a mile away, but she’s living proof that dogs are man’s best friend.

Resthaven Cottage will remind you of the power of family, make you laugh, bring tears to your eyes, and you’ll find a new best friend in Jillian. She just wants to help! Even if her methods raise a few eyebrows.


Resthaven Cottage: Five stars

We loved our stay! My husband and I were on the verge of divorce… until Jillian helped us repair our marriage! I can’t recommend it enough!

Resthaven Cottage Book 2 Reviews

What a lovely, heartwarming story. Karin has managed to capture the full essence of each character in this wonderful book. The storyline is so captivating, drawing you instantly. Resthaven Cottage 2 will be very hard to put down once you start reading and yet you won’t want the story to end. A very well-written book. Full of humor and lighthearted entertainment, mixed with some rather emotional sections. A definite must-read and highly recommended.  Chantel.
