I finally got my hair cut yesterday! It was due for a trim about the time everything shut down, and I’ve just been putting it off ever since hair places reopened. But yesterday, I went in and had 4 inches chopped off. It feels so good even if I did have to wear a mask the whole time and cut hair got into the mask, tickling my nose and driving me crazy. It’s the little things that make me the happiest 😊


Currently Reading


The author, Sandy Barker, is friends with Nina Kaye who wrote my favorite romcom of the year The Gin Lovers Guide to Dating (I may have mentioned it once or twice). So when her new book came out on NetGalley and as a blog tour with Rachel’s Random Resources, I knew I had to give it a go. And I do love Christmas stories 🎄. I like the story so far – beautiful locals with beautiful people. Not too sappy or gratuitous. And lots of Christmas cheer.

About This Book

  • Genre: Holiday Fiction / RomCom
  • Publication Date : October 16, 2020
  • Print Length : 306 pages
  • Publisher : Harper Collins UK / One More Chapter HC

Will all three women have their Christmas wishes come true?

Christmas is coming and best friends ChloeJules, and Lucy are needing change… so swapping homes for the holidays could be the perfect present for all of them!

Australian Chloe spends her Christmas in a sleepy village in Oxfordshire, England. She is totally star-struck when she discovers who lives across the road.

Lucy, who has jetted off to snowy Colorado for her dream-come-true white Christmas, is taken into the fold of Jules’s loud and brash family, discovering more about herself in a few short days than she has in years.

And Jules leaves the cold climes of Colorado to spend her Christmas on a beach with Chloe’s friends in Melbourne, finding that time away is just what she needed.

The only thing better than one Christmas romance is three, and this wonderful festive novel is perfect for fans of Sarah Morgan, Holly Martin and Karen Swan.

OMG! I don’t use text speak very often but this book is so shocking and so surprising, I couldn’t figure out a better way of expressing that. I wasn’t sure what I was getting into when I started it. But this book…OMG. If you love psychological thrillers, you will want to read this one. It’s a Rachel’s Random Resources blog tour book and my post will be out in a few weeks. It may still be available on NetGalley for anyone who is interested 🥰

‘Hugely confident … harrowing, visceral … recommended’ Ian Rankin

A murdered woman…

When the body of a young woman is found in a local park, DC Maggie Jamieson knows she’s dealing with no ordinary killer.  The murder victim has been disfigured; her outfit changed to resemble someone else.  Someone Maggie knows all too well…her close friend Dr Kate Moloney.

A determined detective…

Maggie is determined to keep her friend safe, but with Kate already struggling with a threatening stalker, Maggie now fears Kate’s life is in real danger.  Who else would want to harm Kate and why else would the killer be turning his victims into exact replicas – his living dolls? 

Can Maggie find the depraved killer?  Or will Kate become his next living doll?

‘Kept me hooked’ Angela Marsons

‘An excellent read’ Martina Cole

  1. The Christmas Swap kinda sounds like it’s been there so many times before but somehow still fun and engaging if you need something small and light. A little bit like a Hallmark movie. Am I right?

  2. I’m wondering if you enjoyed The House Mate, Tessa. Lol. All those OMGs! You made me laugh. I’m looking forward to the review. I don’t read psychological thrillers often since they sort of freak me out, but I might have to try this one. 🙂 Happy Reading.

    1. It is fun. Beautiful women in beautiful locales meeting gorgeous men AND three different kinds of Christmas celebrations. It’s what any good Hallmark xmas movie is made of 🥰. I have a few critiques but still enjoyed it and thought it was light holiday fun ❤️
