Mama Jewels sell the perfect jewellery just for mums!


The Mama Jewels Story

 'I looked around the baby group and realised that most of the mums, like me had stopped wearing jewellery, when I asked why they said ‘Our children keep breaking our jewellery so we just had to stop wearing it’ That was the moment I decided to use my jewellery design skills to create a necklace that a baby can’t break, can be washed, and is completely non-toxic for when babies chomp on it,  but still looks gorgeous. Mama Jewels was born!'

Waiting for Summer (book 2) by Anna-maria Athanasiou Review

My review of waiting for Summer Book 2 by Anna-Maria Athanasiou on www.serenityyou.com


Blurb from back of book :

"In Cyprus, after the worst nine months of Sylvie Sapphiris's life, summer has arrived at last, and with it an unexpected, ecstatic change in Sylvie's circumstances. But with all the odds stacked against her new life, can it last?

Sylvie embarks on her planned trip to Athens. A city which holds bittersweet memories. Can Sylvie shake off her past and move into a new future with this incredible man?
After a showdown with her furious former suitor, Sylvie finds herself on the point of sacrificing her future happiness to keep the peace. Sylvie's world is turned upside down again. Distraught and devastated she's left wondering if she'll ever find true love and happiness again. A love she once thought was possible. But fate has one final card to play..."

Book - Waiting for Summer (book 2) by Anna-Maria Athanasiou

Publisher - Austin Macauley

Pages - 520

My Star Rating  - 3.5


My Review :

Waiting for Summer book 2 is the second book about 44 year old Sylvie. 
I thought this book would be hard to understand as it carries on from the first book which I haven't read. But it easy to understand and can be read without having previously read the first book.

The book is about 44 year old widow Sylvie who falls head of heels for 28 year old Nick. They have a world wind romance and completely fall for each other. But because of their age gap they are both worried how their family's will except it. Especially Julian, Nick's dad, who has a crush on Sylvie and was hoping that they would get together. 

I found the book hard to get into at first, with Nick being so loved up, he was over the top and a bit nauseating. And all they seemed to be doing was having sex! it did get on my nerves a bit. And what I also found annoying about the book is some repeat sentences, like "Sylvie looked at him shyly, through her lashes" was repeated a few times.

But half way through the book I really got into it. I fell in love with Nick, The way he adored Sylvie and it really didn't matter that he was 16 years younger than her. You could really feel the true love he had for her.

And there was a surprise for them both, which I had a niggling feeling was going to happen. I should be a detective as I always seem to guess right what will happen. 

Over all I would give this book 3.5 stars. I really enjoyed the second part of the book and the end was really lovely. Left me with a lovely warm fuzzy feeling.

I will be reading more from the author

Find this book on Goodreads and Amazon Paperback or Ebook

About the Author :


Anna-Maria Athanasiou is a wife and mother of two, who after many years of creating fantasy stories in her head decided to take the plunge and put one of them onto paper.


She wanted to write a story people could relate to and consequently feel an empathy with her characters. A story that would touch the reader and ultimately make them fall in love. Waiting for Summer Book Two is her second novel.

I received this book for free in return for a review. All opinions are mine and 100% honest
