Review: Mistletoe Magic by Amanda Siegrist

What a sweet story Mistletoe Magic was! I was not sure at first how I felt about Officer Aiden Crowl because he was quite a jerk. I loved Theresa Brennen’s character though. She was a sweet small-town girl who may not have had the best of opportunities but she made do with what she had. Despite growing up on the wrong side of town she was not jaded and was satisfied […]

Review: Die Before You Wake by D.A. Bale

Die Before You Wake is the fourth book in The Bartender Babe Chronicles and I really enjoyed the changes that have taken place for this cast of characters. This series follows Vicki Bohanan through a series of misadventures where she manages to get herself in some crazy and life-threatening situations. Definitely no shortage of humor and snark in this series and I love it! With the help of her best […]

Review: Flamingo Road by Sasscer Hill

I bought Flamingo Road a few months past because it looked like an interesting book. I was intrigued that it revolved around crime, horses, and the Thoroughbred Racing Protective Bureau. The TRPB is a real agency, which I knew absolutely nothing about before I read this book. If you want to check it out here is a LINK to the home page of the organization. Pretty cool, right? Fia McKee […]

Mini-Review: The Late Show by Michael Connelly

I was excited to read The Late Show because I am a fan of the Harry Bosch series and was looking forward to reading a story with a female lead detective from Author Michael Connelly. I will say that the lead detective in this story reminded me a lot of Detective Antoinette Conway from the Dublin Murder Squad series by Author Tana French. So, if you are a fan of that series then this book […]

***Check out the Blog Tour Schedule and follow along with the tour.*** Ready for Wild was my first taste of Author Liora Blake’s writing style and I am hooked. This book is the third and final installment of the Grand Valley series. Although I had not read the previous books I was not at a loss with the story, it can be read as a standalone. I think the only […]

Since the death of her family she has led a rather isolated life with not too much in the way of personal relationships and that is the one thing that she wishes she had more of.

🎄Review and Holiday Q&A: The Christmas Cowboy Hero by Donna Grant 🎄

Let’s just start this review with saying do you not just love the cover for The Christmas Cowboy Hero?! Definitely a case of love at first sight for me! Clayton East was also a yummy character who had a great heart. Although he was not the same man he was before he left for the military he was still a good man. At the start of this story, he was […]

🎄Review and Holiday Q&A: Deck the Halls by Donna Alward 🎄

Deck the Halls is a Christmastime novella in the Darling, VT series. This is the story of George Reilly, a veteran who blames himself for the loss of someone close to him.

🎄Review and Holiday Q&A: A Season of You by Emma Douglas 🎄

Although this story is a Christmas romance it is not a light and fun read. A Season of You covers some pretty tough subjects and most of the story has to do with moving on after the death of a loved one. This story is not a ‘Christmastime story’ with a focus on Christmas but rather a story that takes place during holiday season and there are Christmastime festivities that […]

🎄Review and Holiday Q&A: Hope at Christmas by Nancy Naigle 🎄

In at Hope at Christmas, the story of Sydney’s character was written realistically and I appreciated that. It is hard for anyone to recover after revelations that lead to divorce and I think that there are many people who can relate to her feelings and the defenses she had in place. Mac’s character also had his share of loss but from a different viewpoint. I liked that his character had […]

Review: Workman’s Complication by Rich Leder

I was interested in reading Workman’s Complication because I like reading stories about private investigators and a story where a private investigation business is inherited, well it peaked my interest that’s for sure. I enjoyed this story from the very beginning and it was hilarious. It had great one-liners and the main character Kate McCall had a lot of Moxie and I love that in a character. It was a […]

***Check out the Blog Tour Schedule and follow along with the tour.*** Review: I don’t know why but I usually end up reading sports romances that revolve around hockey, which is ok with me because…hello….hockey players people. In Breakaway, Luke Daniels has had his world shattered in a moment. Everything he ever wanted was just..poof…gone. His childhood had given him the skills to rise against the odds and he was […]

Review: Hart of Mine by Annie Arcane

I adore the Cale and Mickey series and it was a shame that I had not had a chance to read this concluding novella before now. A real crime, people! Hart of Mine is the fourth novella in the Cale and Mickey series and as I understand it, is the final story in this series (but please say it isn’t so!). I have truly enjoyed getting to know these characters and […]

Review with Excerpt: Beautiful Surrender by Ember Raine Winters

Minx’s Musings: Something that I LOVE about Author Ember-Raine Winters’ writing style is that her stories always give something more than just sexy times. Beautiful Surrender is an action-packed thrill ride of ups and downs with a side of mystery and a whole lot of hoorah! I was also so excited to see that this story was about Trey and Kenzie finally figuring out what was going on between them. […]

***Check out the Blog Tour Schedule and follow along with the tour.*** Minx’s Musings: Perfect Love is the second book in the Perfect series. The Author is quite clear that you should read the first book in this series prior to reading this one but I am a rebel and I like to see how a book does on its own. I did find that yes, this is a series […]

Review: Mackenzie’s Trust by Jane Blythe

Mackenzie’s Trust is the second novella from the Flashes of Fate series. In this story, I was quickly caught up in the nightmare that was Mackenzie’s reality. Let me tell you that it was not a situation I ever want to encounter myself. It was an absolutely terrifying scenario to consider! I loved how I was able to feel Mackenzie’s fear, loathing, and anxiety from the start of this short […]
