Review of ‘One Walk In Winter’ by Georgia Beers

‘One Walk In Winter’ by Georgia Beers is that perfect combination of idyllic setting, feel-good romance and a beautiful ending that had me sighing in contentment. Olivia has worked hard to get where she is in her career, but the top job has eluded her so far. Corporate America hasn’t got past the old boy network and it shows in the lack of innovation and ideas at the Evergreen Spa Resort. When a new and inexperienced manager turns up to take the job Olivia thinks should be hers, she finds it hard to keep her displeasure to herself. Hayley is the seemingly irresponsible youngest child of the Markham clan. When her father gives her a last chance to prove herself, she has no choice but to give it a shot. Especially since he’s cut off her allowance. But Hayley is an artist at heart and finds it difficult to be the person her father wants her to be. An encounter in the woods with a beautiful woman lifts her spirits – but when they both realise the truth, it’s never going to be easy.

I really liked Olivia. She was conscientious, determined and great at her job. She was a people person and perfect for the job. I wanted her to find love too though, as that side of her life had been put on hold while she concentrated on her career. Her family were supportive and her mother was a gem. Hayley had an uphill struggle, however hard she tried. Forcing someone to be what you want is not a good idea in any scenario. She blossomed when she was out in the countryside taking photos. Her heart soared when she painted. Seeing the two women get to know each other properly –  after the initial wow intro – was beautiful. It was never just a chemical reaction between them – there was so much more. It was bout knowing what you really want, and more importantly, what you need. It was about healing and love and passion. A truly heat-warming story. I loved it.

Review of ‘Fear of Falling by Georgia Beers

In ‘Fear of Falling’ Georgia Beers doesn’t take the obvious, easy way . She surprises me as she decides to take her story in altogether more satisfying and joyful routes. She doesn’t write formula, but goes way above that and she makes me love her characters. Sophie James is a world-famous singer getting over the heartache of her father-figure manager dying suddenly. When she is paired with a new manager, Dana Landon, how will she continue her career with someone she doesn’t know? I loved Sophie. She was at a turning point in her life, and she could have chosen to go in two different directions. The way everyone expected – or to finally be true to herself. Dana was strong and sure in her professional life, but her love life was a disaster. Her ex had left her behind without a thought and moved to the other side of the country. Dana has been left still confused. Will she let Laura back in? Or will she take the other path? I enjoyed seeing how the women got to know each other and brought out something unexpected. Sophie’s interactions with ordinary people were my favourite parts of her development. ‘Fear of Falling’ was romantic, feel-good and beautifully told. A lovely story that I can highly recommend.

Review of ‘Calendar Girl’ by Georgia Beers

‘Calendar Girl’ is a perfect masterclass on how to write a breathtakingly beautiful romance novel. Absolutely perfect. And it’s not just about the romance. It’s about love and family and realising what is important in life. It is utterly captivating and the emotional intensity is off the scale. Addison Fairchild is a hard-driven business woman who has no life outside the office. Her determination to succeed has affected her life in so many ways – and all to her detriment. This Ice Queen is about to get thrown off course by the most amazing woman – and she is not at all prepared. Katie Cooper takes a second job to help her patents as the family struggles to cope with her father’s early onset dementia. She is kind, loving and thoughtful and exactly what Addison needs. I loved Katie. She brought out the best in Addison and was so caring. I wanted Addison to realise that she had everything she could ever want right in front of her, if only she could see it.

Georgia Beers had me captivated from the start with this story. Two skilfully crafted characters, an enthralling plot and the best kissing scene ever! Boy does this woman know how to write a first kiss. And don’t get me started on the sex scene. Hot, romantic and epic. I adored this book. Five stars and highly recommended.

Review of ‘Right, Here Right Now’ by Georgia Beers

‘Right Here Right Now’ is a slow-burning sweet romance between two very different women. Lacey is an accountant who lives her life to a plan, is predictable and does not like change. Enter Lacey, a marketing and design executive who is the complete opposite. Nevertheless they click. I enjoyed them getting to know each other and finding out about their different businesses and friends. The connection is sexy, emotional and very hot. I really wanted them to make it and Georgia Beers certainly knows how to pitch the ‘will they won’t they?’ question perfectly. Alicia surprised me more and was not the person I thought at the beginning. Lacey blossomed in her presence and this was my favourite element of the book. I would have liked a bit more of their story, what happened next. 4.5 Stars.
