 It’s a mid-summer evening on the huge, modern Elmwood Estate. A new tenant loiters, unsure where, exactly she needs to go. A sensation of dread eventually guides her to The Willows, a tiny cul-de-sac of four properties tucked away at the farthest corner. The tension in the air feels like an electrical charge and Rebekah fears she might have bitten off more than she could chew when she agreed to act as helper to Julian, Guardian Angel of Hopless Cases. But what choice did she have? Due to her relentless wailing in the Abyss, every soul in the Kingdom of Heaven had been driven to the end of their tether. So Julian offers her a second chance. Her task is to help some mortals even more hopeless than herself and in the process try to win back the love and trust of Luke, the love of her life. If she fails, there’s only one place she’s going – downstairs! But laying her hands on her larger-than-life neighbours, in order to heal them is sometimes easier said than done, With Obnoxious Audrey’s emotional outbursts, Rebekah’s chances of healing her seem impossible. And pretty soldier-girl, Gillian is stuck to Luke like a bad smell that just can’t be eliminated. Rebekah’s allocated time on Earth is ticking away. With every passing day she becomes weaker and she is still nowhere near completing Angel Julian’s task. Her beautiful wings have long-since turned to dust. What will be her fate? Rebekah aka Ruby forms friendships like she’s never known before in this story of true love.

ANGEL OF THE WILLOWS.jpg

Romance, love, friendship and redemption.

December 14, 2014Format: Kindle Edition|Verified PurchaseI am going to confess to loving “Angel” stories. Eons ago I use to watch all of Michael London’s “
Highway to Heaven” series and I ended up with tears in my eyes at the end of nearly episode. LOLWhile living, Rebekah was a drug addict who fell in love with Luke. Though Luke loved her, he walked away from her until she could clean up her act and become drug-free. She cleaned herself up and Luke ended up proposing to her. BUT one of Rebekah’s former drug buddies dumped a roofie into her drink. She ends up overdosing and dying in Luke’s arms. Luke was devastated and believed it was a relapse.

Feeling hurt and rejected and not wanting Luke to think that she was at fault, Rebekah made a huge fuss in heaven. Finally she was tasked with going back to earth to live amongst some mortals who desperately needed help and guidance. The deal was, IF she made a positive difference on earth, she would once again become mortal. If she didn’t, she would travel the downward road to hell.

What a great start to an angel story. The challenge for Rebekah is that the people she is sent to help out, are pretty hopeless. Will she be able to make a difference before her time runs out?

Author, Angela Gascoigne has done a FABULOUS job in creating a cast of characters with real problems, challenges and “devils.” I found myself turning pages faster and faster to find out what would happen. Will Rebekah redeem herself in the eyes of Luke? Will she get him back? Will she be able to stay on earth or will she be banished to Hell?

This is a great “feel good” story. Romance, love, friendship and redemption.

COME BACK TO THE CARAVAN OF LOVE WITH TOM AND ANNIE THE CARAVAN REVISITED BY ANNIE LANCASTER/ANGELA GASCOIGNE

CARAVANREVISITBLURB.jpg

Two years have passed since Annie closed the last page of her journal, The Caravan of Love. In The Caravan Revisited her journal continues. But what became of that family living on the edge of madness? Did they turn their back on The Emerald Isle and go back to Newcastle after all?

There’s only one way to find out. Put the kettle on, stoke the fire and take some time out to peep inside the pages of Annie’s Journal where you’ll find the answers to your questions. Wherever they did end up, be assured it’s a laugh-a-minute in Annie and Tom’s house. Not! There’s a brand new business venture on the horizon – followed closely by a worldwide recession, a multitude of mounting bills and debts, a few more nervous breakdowns, two Antarctic winters… and we mustn’t forget the terrorists! But don’t feel too downhearted. Annie doesn’t. She’s a fighter, a survivor with a dream of becoming a great writer one day! Will she ever save up enough change in that bottle to enrol on a writing course? There are some new additions to the family and loved ones aren’t the only people to come and stay. There are also some visitors from the other side!

Have Annie and Tom made the biggest mistake of their lives, uprooting their whole family only to end up living in a dilapidated caravan in the middle of building site?

It’s the winter of 2003. Annie and Tom have itchy feet. Living and dying in the same small area of Newcastle, England, and never seeing any other part of the world doesn’t appeal to them one bit. But where, on this great big planet, would they be happy?
New Zealand or Australia: too far away.
Scotland or Yorkshire: not far enough.
Spain or France: Too dumb to learn a language!
So when Tom is offered a position as a tattoo artist, working in a brand new studio in Cork city, Ireland, the decision is made and their adventure unfolds.
Travelling by ferry in their trusty camper van Tom is first to arrive. While he is getting settled into his new job and looking for somewhere to live, Annie is up the walls dealing with everything back in Newcastle.
One sunny morning in July Annie waves goodbye to family, friends and the place she’s called home since the day she was born, and sets off for her new life in Ireland with Tom and their three sons: seventeen-year-old Jack, sixteen-year-old Jamie and Robin who is seven.
Each member of the family shares a different level of excitement and enthusiasm as they settle into the mouse and ant infested bungalow they rent from a local farmer for a year.
Eventually their goal is in sight when they spot their dream house: an almost derelict farmhouse in the beautiful countryside of West Cork. With no building experience, some very laid back local tradesmen and a budget about half of what they need to complete the work, they begin the renovation.
The building schedule goes nowhere according to plan and family life is strained to say the least.
Have Annie and Tom made the biggest mistake of their lives, uprooting their whole family only to end up living in a dilapidated caravan in the middle of building site? Or, will their dream of a self-sufficient existence in their beautiful country farmhouse materialise.
Read Annie’s journal and experience the laughter, the tears and the many nervous breakdowns that ensue as the family’s re-location story unfolds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adored itReviewed in the United States on October 24, 2016Every now and again you pick up a book with hardly any ratings and you think, I’ll just give it a try. Well let me tell you something,this got to be my favourite read of the year. Annie moves to Ireland and live in a caravan until the house is rebuilt. Nothing unique there? This is a brilliant journey, sometimes sad, uplifting and laugh out loud funny. This must have been some journey and difficult to come out the same sane person. I loved this book. Get it now it’s a cracker.

Rosie, lost and broken, boards the first bus to anywhere. Her luggage comprises nothing more than her hair straighteners and a marmalade cat with attitude.

For Danny, reluctant manager of his late uncle’s sea front bar, living in Shrove is a far cry from his previous life in Spain and the ghosts he thought he’d left behind. When one day, a raven-haired stranger bursts through the door, he suddenly realises there is a reason to stay – despite the hives and the problem down below!

Maggie is delighted to have her nephew home from Spain and living next door. The family B&B, The Brambles is a big responsibility and her mental state is declining rapidly. When she mistakes the airing cupboard for the fridge, a state of emergency is called and Maggie finds herself on the slippery slope to…retirement.

Amidst all the madness, it seems there’s only one place where Rosie and Danny’s budding romance has a chance to blossom – Maggie’s old beach hut. But that’s not just fog they can see in the distance. There’s an intruder on the horizon. And there’s a black cloud of trouble in the form of Septic Sadie who will stop at nothing to win the real man of her dreams.

Can this whirlwind romance survive the impending tangle of secrets and lies?

P.S. Winn4.0 out of 5 stars Hang on for an adventure of lifeReviewed in the United States on June 17, 2016Verified Purchase

This is a romance, but it is not the normal kind you read. This story is more of a real life story with all the hardships and twists and turns we all go through. For Rosie, getting away from an abusive relationship lands her in Shrove and meeting Danny and his aunt Maggie. The story follows being told by Danny and Rosie as their love and life goes through struggles and joys. The author does a good job bringing to the pages an emotional tale of love, life and everything that comes with!

A BEAUTIFUL STORY ABOUT LOVE AND MOVING ON! IN ANOTHER LIFE BY ANGELA GASCOIGNE!

A FAB 4 STAR REVIEW FOR IN ANOTHER LIFE

IN ANOTHER LIFE.jpg

4 starsInteresting book that will have readers glued to the pages.

May 10, 2018Format: Kindle EditionVerified PurchaseAlthough I am giving this book a four star review, I think many readers will like the tale even more than I did, and it is quite a tale. The author.gives readers a peek into the life of Holly Dineen. I liked Holly and could see personality traits from several people I know wrapped up in this complex lady who is just trying to figure out love,life and the emotions that go with hardships, heartaches and times that are wonderful and make Holly who she is. The book is an emotional roller coaster ride that is a must read.

FRIENDSHIP, WORK, ROMANCE, A WINNING TICKET…REVENGE! PLANET POULTRY BY ANGELA GASCOIGNE!

Planet Poultry tells the story of five friends who work together in a chicken processing factory in the North East of England. Each of them is struggling with their own personal dilemas but living in the hope that things can only get better. One day, something monumental happens that changes their lives forever… In this gritty story, we come face to face with real-life issues such as: domestic violence, addiction, depression and the heart-rending tick of the biological clock. Yet there is also an injection of humour and warmth which is certain to keep the reader enthralled and feeling great empathy for these realistic characters who could so easily be their very own neighbours or friends. Whilst reading Planet Poultry, we are taught some valuable lessons: the importance of good friends; to always have hope and never give up because we never know what lies round the corner; and, most importantly, that revenge is a dish best served cold!

Kindle Customer5.0 out of 5 stars COULDN’T PUT IT DOWNReviewed in the United States on May 26, 2018There is laughter and heart break in the lives of five friends. Norman, Joyce, Tina, Kerry and Colin. All 5 are facing some sort of turmoil but always have time to help each other. Life at Planet Poultry is never dull and the author has written a touching and inspiring story. Anything can happen when you have great mates and a winning lotto ticket wouldn’t hurt.

ROMANCE IS MAGIC IN SOUP BY ANGELA GASCOIGNE

Imaginary Magic? White Magic? Black Magic? “Soup” is a magical book – recommended.

January 20, 2015Format: Kindle Edition

Serena and Ava have their own reasons for loving The Book Nook, the tiny workshop/café that provides a library in the form of a book exchange to customers, grateful for it in the small town a bus journey from Cork in Ireland. For Serena it’s her retreat from tragedy, the mysterious disappearance of the man whose child she miscarried and, one blustery autumn morning, a man she sees when she walks her dog on the beach, who apparently walks into the icy sea to his death. Her friend Ava visits often, escaping her city life with domineering husband, Richard, who insists on being the bread-winner and expects her to do nothing but wait on him, when her desire is to help those in need.

These two characters, and many others, are brilliantly drawn, and the story gripping, but there is much more to this book than appears at first. A girl whose father vanished from her life a year previously asks Serena to display a photograph of him. Serena does so, but tells Ava she will cast a spell to bring the girl luck with her quest. Is Serena really a white witch, or slightly insane with grief? If she does have magic powers, can she use them to find her own lost love? Can she help Ava to to find true happiness and if she does try, will it be as a normal friend or… read “Soup” and see, but do read it.
