Stacking The Shelves

Welcome to my Stacking The Shelves post hosted by Reading Reality. I got accepted for my first Netgalley book and a Blog Tour this and my son had a fair few books for his birthday this week (of which I have only picked a couple!):

Netgalley Book:

Snowed In For Christmas by Sarah Morgan

Book Description From Netgalley:

She’s snowed in with the family. The only problem? They’re not her family.

A family gathering
This Christmas the Miller siblings have one goal – to avoid their family’s well-meaning questions. Ross, Alice and Clemmie have secrets that they don’t intend to share, and they are relying on each other to deflect attention.

An uninvited guest
Lucy Clarke is facing a Christmas alone, and the prospect of losing her job – unless she can win a major piece of business from Ross Miller. She’ll deliver her proposal to his family home in the Scottish Highlands and then leave. After all, she wouldn’t want to intrude on the Miller’s perfect family Christmas.

A Christmas to remember
When Lucy appears on the Miller’s snow-covered doorstep, she is mistaken for Ross’s girlfriend. But by the time the confusion is cleared up, a storm has hit and Lucy is stuck. As everyone settles in for a snowed-in Christmas, tensions bubble to the surface and suddenly Lucy finds herself facing a big family fallout with a family that isn’t hers…”

My review is due on 27 October so keep your eyes peeled for it on here, Amazon, Goodreads, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!

Blog Tour Book:

Keeping a Christmas Promise by Jo Thomas

Book Description:

“A Christmas to remember for a friend they’ll never forget…

Four friends
While on holiday twenty-five years ago, Freya and her three best friends created a bucket list. As they talked about families, careers and travelling, the future seemed bright, full of hope and most importantly guaranteed…

One promise
Now, Freya and two friends are travelling to Iceland in memory of the friend they’ve lost, determined to fulfil her dream of seeing the Northern lights. Nothing – not even a snowstorm – is going to stop them.

A life-changing adventure
When an avalanche leaves them stranded, a handsome local, Petur, comes to the rescue and shows them how the community come together to survive. With Christmas fast approaching, the women throw themselves into village life preparing for the festive celebrations.

As Freya’s love for the village and feelings for Petur grow, could this be her chance to find true happiness?

Keeping a Christmas Promise is an uplifting and heart-warming story about friendship, adventure and learning to love again set in a picturesque Icelandic village.”

I am on the Blog Tour for this book on 22 September so keep your eyes peeled for my review on here, Amazon, Goodreads, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!

    It’s fun but deadly to start getting Netgalley books! I keep requesting and the ebook pile keeps growing and I have to just. stop. Because the library is also my friend and I’ve got a big wait list there and inevitably they all come in at once. And then my own shelves. What’s a girl to do??? 🙂 I’ll be watching for your blog hop – my first participation in one is next week, so watch for my review of Moral Fibre.

      Ergh I am worried about it. I am trying my best to slow down. I haven’t done too badly, but like you say the library…

      I love a blog hop. I will keep an eye out. Which one is it? To be honest whatever meme I take part in I hop around as many as I can 🙂

      Yes the covers are great for that. We have finally cooled down and got some grey skies. I love a grey sky! I love Paddington and luckily my son was easily won over!

      Thank you. You too 🙂

    Both those holiday romances sound so cozy and fun! I read a few Sarah Morgan books a while back, and enjoyed them, but I’ve sort of pulled back on contemporary romances recently. Still, I might check them out – both Scotland and Iceland are cold and dark but beautiful in the winter!

      I feel like I have read a few too many romances recently, but I couldn’t resist Christmas ones!! And as it is nearly Autumn I thought that it would be ok!
