Happy New Year to my blog friends! 2015 was a good reading and writing year. If you follow my blog fairly regularly, you are aware of my Elite Award. Sometimes there are books that just hit you. I mean, there are great books that you would qualify as a “five star”, but there are those that you just REALLY love and hold a special place on your shelf. Hence, the Elite Award. So one last hoorah for the Elite reads of 2015…

by Renita D’Silva

Miss Wrong and Mr. Right
by Robert Bryndza
After ditching her fiance at the altar at the age of nineteen, Natalie Love finds herself fifteen years later still single, but with a hot yoga instructor boyfriend, great friends, and a perfect career as the manager of a successful London theatre. But when her ex-fiance shows up to open a new theatre across the street and the famous heartthrob American actor, Ryan Harrison, takes notice of her, Natalie can’t help but start questioning what could have been and what might be. It’s a story of a woman who, in almost losing everything that matters to her, finds contentment in being herself. A wonderful message.

Sophie Teague doesn’t fit in. Not at her old school, nor at the new one, which she started when her parents died in a freak motorbike accident. She lives with her gran in a rundown pub. It doesn’t help that she’s six feet tall and built like a beanpole with a shock of wild red hair. The one person keen to spend time with her, is “Eve,” a beautiful and forceful ghost, who starts making nightly appearances in Sophie’s bedroom. Eve needs her help. Sophie isn’t sure why or how—but she knows Eve won’t stop haunting her until she finds out. So with the unlikely help of brooding classmate Jordan Haig, Sophie sets out to unravel the mystery.
