Without giving anything away I will say...... This book is AMAZING! I love it, hard <3
Thirty days is not just an average typical love story kind of book. You'll feel all the emotions- I was crying my eyes out one minute and laughing in the next. You connect and relate with all of the characters in some way. For Abi, she has had her share of heartache for a few different reasons. As a result of that, she believes she is cursed. You will feel for her and just want to give her the biggest hug. But,

First things first ... the book title says Part 1 ... yes kids, that means the journey of Abigail and Marcus will not conclude in this book, so please no bitching and moaning about the whole cliffhanger thing. Belle Brooks deserves top notch recognition for this debut novel, so no down rating because "you hate cliffhangers." THANKS :)

Alright ... now for the good stuff ... it's going to sound a little cryptic because the story has many little twists to it that you shouldn't know about before you

You know how as a reader sometimes you grab books because you have seen them somewhere, but you have no idea what they are about? That for me was Thirty Days- Part #1. I had seen advertised Thirty Days Part #2 and grabbed a copy and then I figured that since it was Part #2, it would be vital for once to read this series in absolute order, so I went and grabbed Part #1. I had no idea what it would be about, and all I did know was that the author was Australian and new to the scene of authors. Goi ...more

Abigail is completely convinced that she's hexed. She thought she had the perfect life until her finance tells her that he can't marry her. Abi actually took it like a champ at the time, but months later, she finally snaps when her dog dies on the same day that she found out her ex is engaged to marry someone else. She was put on a leave of absence from her job for tripping out on a student, and can barely get out of bed now. Her best friend, Sammy, has had enough of the pity party, and stages a ...more

OH MY GOODNESS!! How does one explain how much they love a book without giving anything away??? How about I just tell you how much I loved it with no summary because a review shouldn’t be a rewrite of the synopsis by the reader but our reactions to the book. So that is what you are getting. :)

First, I just looked at the page count on this bad boy and realized it wasn’t a novella, it is a OMG can’t wait to turn this 264 pages. How did the end come that quickly???? I flew throug

I thought it was a little slow starting out but half way through it started getting good. Abigail and her antics did start to get annoying but I want to know more about Marcus so I will read book 2 to find out more.

Belle Brooks is a writing genius. She had me hating a character but feeling sorry for them by the end! I can't bear whiney , dramatic , hysterical women and Abi is one of them. Her life is a mess and everything is a drama , I spent a lot of my time shouting pull yourself together women. However, the fact this book is well written I couldn't put it down no matter how much I dislike Abi.
Marcus is sexy and adorable. The friendship between Abi and Sammy is really beautiful and endearing and the twi

I loved this book! A great debut novel by Belle Brooks. This is not your typical office romance which was my mindset when I started this book. How wrong was I!! there is romance, mystery, laughs and heartache with a twist you will never see coming!! Brilliant Ms. Belle!!

I received a copy of this book from Quirky Blind Date with a Book for the month of September.

Abigail is hexed, cursed, the world is out to get her. Normally she can pull herself back up and stay positive, but not anymore. Her fiance left her the day she bought her wedding dress, her beloved dog passed away, she was put on an extended leave from her job, what can possibly happen next?

When she meets Marcus Klein she’s immediately drawn to him but she doesn’t know why. She is completely confused b

Abigail thought she had the perfect life. She had a fiancé who loved her and she was on a road trip with her best friends on her way to buy her wedding dress. She couldn’t be happier, but then life doesn’t always go the way we plan, does it?
What do you do when your life has been hexed? You lean on your mum and your friends. At least, that’s what Abigail did when her life spins out of control and she believes she has been hexed. Will an intervention staged by her friends help her get her life ba

All her friends have had enough so to help her they get her a job at her friend’s dad’s law firm.

"Marcus' grip holds me frozen. What is it about this man that makes me surrender? As quick as his arms release their hold, his hand clasps min firmly, keeping me in place."

5 stars!! Quirky and fun read!

This book was such a joy to read!!! I loved the whole idea of the book and the characters made it that much better! Abigail is convinced she's hexed since nothing good ever seems to go her way. But her luck seems to change when she gets a job at a law firm and she meets Marcus, where she seems to

This book was gifted to me in exchange for a fair and honest review.....
I am not sure what has just happened..one minute I am reading an office romance..boy meets girl..well hot lawyer, Marcus, meets quirky, feisty girl, Abi, and the next I have fallen down a rabbit hole of loss, heartache and forgotten memories.
It is difficult to write this review without giving too much away...I have to say that for the first half of the book I wasn't too keen on Abi, she was too smart mouthed and her decisio

Abigail McMillian knows she must be hexed. Her fiancée jilted her, her puppy passed away, and she and her mother mourn the all to early death of her father. She's not coping well. She's struggling to make her life worth living. She's hit rock bottom. Her friends intervene and land her a job, after she was put on leave from her school teaching position. Just one more nail in her coffin. Abi’s world turns upside down with a vision of dark brown eyes so familiar, yet new to her. While less than a f ...more

Book About Me?! Must Read

This is the first book that I've read by this author and I'm already a nice stalker lol! This is not a standalone as I'm sure you can tell by the title, and it ends on a nosedive of a cliffhanger! I can't wait for the next book and to see where Belle Brooks takes us in this journey! I'm so thankful for quirky blind date with a book, or I would have never found this! This book had so many emotions running through me! I was full blown crying, one minute, to laughing so har

She is thankful for her support system which is made up with her great group of friends and her mom. She then starts a new job and we meet Marcus. Who is Marcus and will Abigail turn her life around? This is Ms. Brooks debut novel and she does a fantastic job writing the story. I was hooked from the first chapter and could not put it down.

Wow! Didn't know what to expect when I started this debut novel. I started following the author on Facebook because I loved her positive posts. Having then discovered she had written a book I decided to read it. I was not prepared for the emotional roller coaster this book took me on!
We are introduced to the main characters of Abigail and Marcus. Abigail is feisty, dramatic and very funny. She has a circle of friends and a best friend called Sammy who love her and look after the clumsy

I could not put this book down, it's one of those that you think just one more chapter even at 3 am. The story is so well written it just flows and pulls you right in. With Abi and Marcus you just fall in love with the characters, just when you think ahhh I know what's going on it twists and you dont. Lots of oh no moments and Oh Yes moments with just enough sizzle. Warning it does e

Abigail McMillian has had it rough lately. Or, according to her, always has as she believes she is hexed. Though flashbacks and current happenings, Abbi has had a pretty grim few months surely you can understand why she has had a cocktail or 1200. Luckily for Abi, she has a strong group of friends and her Mum to help her get herself straight and even get her a job where she meets Marcus, swoon worthy and you start to realize that things aren't as they seem and wonder if Abi really is hexed.

I loved this book and it's the first by this author that I've read.
Abi seems to be a walking disaster area, spilling things, falling over, one of those people that if something can go wrong for, it will. Her bestie, Sammy, is there to pick her up, dust/wipe her off and tease her mercilessly. They are wonderful together and made me smile and laugh out loud at some of their antics.
Then came...another disaster...but with a great result, that turned her into a hot mess. Marcus is his name...And oh b
