Won this via LT for an honest review.
Writing not too bad, but I just couldn't get into this book at all., and unfortunately could not bring myself to finish which is extremely unusual for me. So for that reason, I have actually marked it 2.75; which I don't think is too bad score considering.
Just becaz some people are unfaithful, selfish, doesn't mean that you have to. Just did not like the story at all, but thanks Melissa for offering this to us via LT.

Wonderful, romantic read. Warms you like toast, Tracey certainly knows her stuff and how to write. Beautiful story. Certainly is a page turner. Thanks for giving me a copy to read and I can't wait to read the 2nd book in this series. Wonderful clear writing as per usual.
Maggie is surprised that she managed to succeed in getting the job, or was this a set up? I really admired her strength of just uprooting and leaving her life behind to start afresh into the unknown.
Aaron, such a wonderful romantic sensitive man. Just a shame what happened in the past, I really felt for him completely.
Andi, such a lovely and sweet person. No wonder they were practically inseparable.
But then there's a hidden mystery behind the west wing. Why is everyone forbidden from going there?
Who is this mysterious ms. Devereaux and why does she still pretending that nothing's amiss?
A Winter Wedding: Book Two of the Devereaux Manor Mystery Series
on Jan. 07, 2016
Step inside, forget about the world for a while. Come to the Manor where your fate awaits you, but why, why was everyone invited?
It was wonderful catching up with Maggie & Aaron again, but who is this Ms.Devereaux? Why hasn't anyone seen her yet, whats with all the locked doors in the East Wing, what's the mystery behind Devereaux Manor and where did Hero come from? Is this all a coincidence or was it all planned to get them all together for some unknown reason?time will soon tell, surely.
As always, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Tracey in giving me a copy of this wonderful story that once again I thoroughly enjoyed and I just can't wait to read the sequel. It really takes ones breath away, you can't escape and theres nowhere to hide, you are so taken back by all the mystery of the Manor

A Spring Scandal: Book Three of the Devereaux Manor Mystery Series
on March 21, 2016
Heart Wrenching Murder Mystery Thriller Romance
First off, I would like to commend Tracey about how well she has done on this story yet again. Tracey certainly knows how to write a Love story, but! this isn't just an average love story, this series is a Murder Mystery, one that turns into a shocking Thriller also.
The whole series just draws the reader in n grips you completely cos how mind blowing it is n certainly is a page turner. Keeps the reader wanting more n more, wondering whats going to happen next. You might think you've worked it all out, then wham bang!you suddenly get a twist in the story that's so Heart wrenching you actually stop breathing. You get to feel all their emotions n see all the action, makes the reader so engrossed so much so you feel as tho its happening to you. Is This a fairytale n, if so, does this fairytale come right in the end? Will any of them have their HEA in the end they so rightly deserve or does it all end in complete disaster!
Highly recommend this entire series n I just can't wait to read more of your astounding work Trace

Circumstances prevent Soul-mates tobe together in the past, so are you given a second chance in your present one!
Terrific writing as per usual, terrific story, certainly is a page turner one that leaves the reader gasping for air n makes you wonder whats gonna happen next. Sad pasts events, but happy endings in the present. Makes you wonder if one can have a second chance to life! Thnx Merry for givng me this to read bbe, enjoyed every minuite of reading
Storm On The Horizon
on April 06, 2016
You are destined to marry whomever is chosen for you, you haven't even got that privilege for falling in love
'How can you be so beautiful, surely you can't have a brain and sense of humor?'
Just imagine being so darne beautiful, that you have got to put a spell on yourself so you look plain so that the blokes do not look at you whilst using magic on your sister so you dnt outshine her at all by transforming her into this beauty.
He was a stranger to her and yet he made her feel so good, so happy. Was it not magic or Could it have been something else? It had felt so good that she’d melted in arms. 'You are the joy in my life. You are my happiness. Without you my life would be nothing'
Some people will only see what they want to see, will only believe what they want to believe....but there are only a selected few that will be able to see and hear between the lines, its the true ones that will know what inside even if its not on show.
OMG. I just knew how beautiful this story would be, but its even more so than I ever imagined. Sounds like a real life fairytale, makes you wish that someday might come true.
Thankyou. Thankyou. Thankyou Meredith for letting me read this magnificent story of yours. I thoughly enjoyed every minuite of reading this and one i would highly recommend
Bridging the Storm

A sweet romantic story. At times you never could tell if it was going to be a hea or not, so many twists & very quite nostalgic
Addicted to Merry, addicted to Sir Dagonet, addicted to this story.
Can't wait to catch up with Sir Dagonet again, where next on his travels he may be.
Children of Avalon

Magic and anything related to it had become a part of my life. I am Vallen, I'm not a Witch., March 23 2014
bookshelves: action, adventure, bond, family, fantasy, magic, romance, survival
Recommended by: Meredith Bond
Recommended for: Everyone that enjoys Fairytales with quite abit of adventure thrown in
Read from March 20 to 23, 2014
I would like to say a real big thanks to you Merideth for inviting me to your event, and giving me this opportunity to read such a magical fantasy.
And what a fantasy this was, you certainly get thrown into the world of magic. We get to meet some of the nicest Vallen people, the Children of Avalon and the most bravest and gentlest knight that ever lived, Sir Dagonet. The fight that he encountered was so amusing, it's just a tad bit loud but that's only to be expected.
This is such a magical world; with lots of amazing sights like flying rocks, Dylan changing into a fish because he's connected to water. Skais, who is connected to air, being able to change into a bird and Bridget whose a healer, is strongly tied to the element of fire.
Plenty of action, plenty of twists and loads of magic.
Who is Lady Nimuë and how did she become the Lady of the Lake? Who will find the fabled Merlin’s Chalice first? Who will eventually be the ruler of the world of Vallen and maybe the human world as well?
Cannot wait to see what happens next to the Children of Avalon, will they survive? Will they ever find peace?
"Kisses can be dangerous, kisses can be empowering, it only takes one small kiss to be lethal"

My Lord Ghost
on Sep. 21, 2016
I have always been fascinated by the paranormal, so I was overwhelmed with this book as it most certainly comes alive.
You find that it will haunt you but in quite a pleasant n calming way, cos its one of those stories that you will never be able to forget. The flow of the storyline is smooth n extremely clear, with plenty of mystery to intrigue the reader to keep on turning the pages faster n faster.
I love the imagination that went into creating this, it is so romantic n the ending brings a real shocker, really clever. I just cant wait to hear more from Merry. Well done once again, good clear writing. Highly recommended for ppl who love a good mystery, adventure, romance and def a good ghost story.

Mysterious n Playful
First off, I would like to express my thnx to Merry for giving me this to read, such a wonderful ending to such a magnificent story. Once again, she has done amazing, such a beautiful book, one Id def recommend.
Lovely smooth writing making this such a quick page turner n even tho its the fourth in the series, just like the rest of Merry's books, can be read individually or alongside in sequence.
I am sure others will agree with me that Meredith Bond is one talented author
Destiny of the Queen (The Brajj 3)
on Aug. 07, 2017
I am addicted to Jacqueline, she's one amazing author. Read this in one day, cover to cover, just couldn't put it down cos I just needed to know of the outcome, when I realised that there were voices n different types of noises going on inside my head, the story comes very much alive.
You don't just read any story by Jacqueline Patricks, you hear them, you hear all the action.
Thnx bbe for giving me this to read, sorry it took me a while, but I always get there eventually
