Jera’s Jamboree : Caught my Eye #Kindle

I haven’t done this feature on my blog for a while.  I couldn’t resist sharing Kindle books that caught my eye while browsing Saturday!

Which books have caught your eye recently?


 One Perfect Christmas by Paige Toon

One Perfect Christmas picks up with Alice and Joe one year on… He’s a bigger star than ever, and Alice has managed to maintain her anonymity. But how long can that last? Will this be their first – and last – perfect Christmas? And where is Lukas? 

Snuggle up in front of the fire to read this magical wintery short story about what happened next…

I reviewed One Perfect Summer in July 2012 (you can read my review here) which I enjoyed and so I was very excited to see this short story.

Bad Angels by Rebecca Chance

Wharf where celebrities who have had ‘work’ done can hole up until they have healed and which is about to see its most glamorous and scandalous Christmas yet.

Staying there over the festive period is Melody Down, an actress whose career is in tatters after too much plastic surgery and who has fled LA to get her body and her boyfriend back. But is a ‘well-meaning’ friend about to sabotage all of Melody’s Christmas wishes?

Meanwhile, Aniela Fatyga, the nurse in residence, finds herself falling for the unlikely Jon Jordan, an assassin for hire who is also convalescing there. Will her feelings be reciprocated or will their sizzling relationship remain purely physical? And who is he on the run from?

And then there’s oligarch Grigor Khalofsky, the owner of Kensington football team, whose legendary Christmas party is about to get a whole lot more exciting when murder, blackmail and scandalous revelations decide to pay a visit along with Santa.

Having reviewed Bad Sisters August 2011 (you can read my review here) and my review for Killer Heels is scheduled for 9th November 2012, this is another author whose writing style and story telling I enjoy.

From Notting Hill to New York … Actually by Ali McNamara

Scarlett O’Brien, utterly addicted to romantic films, has found her leading man. She’s convinced Sean is Mr Right, but the day-to-day reality of a relationship isn’t quite like the movies. With Sean constantly away on business, Scarlett and her new best friend Oscar decide to head to New York for the holiday of a lifetime.

 From one famous landmark to the next, Scarlett and Oscar make many new friends during their adventure – including sailors in town for Fleet Week, a famous film star, and Jamie & Max, a TV reporter and cameraman. Scarlett finds herself strangely drawn to Jamie, they appear to have much in common: a love of films and Jamie’s search for a parent he never knew. But Scarlett has to ask herself why she is reacting like this to another man when she’s so in love with Sean . . .

I reviewed From Notting Hill with Love … Actually in June 2011 (you can read my review here).  Another book I enjoyed so again, when I saw Scarlett was off on another adventure, this went straight on my wish list.

The Christmas Bake-Off by Abby Clements

With Christmas just around the corner, the residents of Skipley village are gearing up for the annual bake off, and tensions are high. 

Winning means a lot to everyone involved – talented cake-shop owner Katie dreams of baking stardom, Rachel wants to prove she’s more than a stay-at-home mum, and John hopes his culinary skills will impress the woman he loves. 

But when the judges discover that some cakes have been tampered with, the villagers’ loyalties are called into question – whose ambition would stretch to sabotage, and why?

The Christmas Bake-Off is an exclusive short story from Abby Clements, author of Meet Me Under the Mistletoe. This ebook edition also includes bonus recipes for cinnamon cookies and vanilla and almond biscuits.

I’ve seen some great reviews of Abby Clements Meet Me Under the Mistletoe from other bloggers in my network so when I saw The Christmas Bake-Off on Amazon for FREE, how could I resist?
