Pretend I’m Not Here by Chris Gavaler

Synopsis :

Trapped in Honeymoon Heaven with game show winners and a mobster’s wife, Ashley Farrell didn’t think things could possibly get any worse...

Spending long, languid weekends in St Thomas would seem like a dream job for most people. For single, 30-something Ashley Farrell, however, it comes with the humiliation of having to act as chaperone for the various bachelor and bachelorette winners of a popular TV dating show. But this dead-end junket shows signs of a new life. Between safeguarding the morals of curvaceous Melissa and voracious Randy and avoiding the diamond-dripping wife of a reputed crime boss, Ashley is attracting the serious attention of a tall, deliciously sexy stranger she met on the airplane. Things are definitely looking up!

Until she discovers a dead bodyguard on the beach...

Until she finds herself surrounded by FBI agents...

Until she is arrested for murder....

And now there’s big trouble in paradise for sure!

Taking the cue from the synopsis, imagine me, trapped in a beach resort with this book and no other books and forced to read it. I wanna cry! It was a long and languid weekend with other books to rescue me.

The book started off quite ok but just got worst as it goes along. While the title is Pretend I’m Not Here, I’m going to pretend I didn’t read this book and never did this review.

My new books - Ice Cream Girls & Brightest Star In The Sky


I have been eying the above books for quite a while now, waiting for the right opportunity to get my hands on them.  My eying my have caught the attention of my beloved and such, I was surprised when I received a package with a note that I would certainly like it. 

Puzzled but curious at the same time, I opened up the package and couldn't contain my joy when the package revealed the above.

The Ice Cream Girls by Dorothy Koomson and The Brightest Star In the Sky by Marian Keyes.  These are their latest release and now I can't wait to get started on them. :)

Thank you, my beloved for the wonderful gifts. <3
