Review: City of Lies by Victoria Thompson

City of Lies was the type of book that only got better as it went on. At the start, I was introduced to Elizabeth Mile’s character and grifter ways, which I found most interesting. When things went bad with a deal, she wound up taking part in a suffragist march in order to try and throw some thugs off of her trail. Only that did not go as she had […]

🎄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: 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: Sunsets at Seaside by Addison Cole with Excerpt

***Check out the Blog Tour Schedule and follow along with the tour.*** Review: Sunsets at Seaside was a cute and swoony romance. I thought the setting was quite superb. I could really see the cottages nestled in between Cape Cod Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. It was a nice setting for a summertime romance. Jessica Ayers as a character was just a sweet little thing with her naivety and eagerness […]

Review: A Conspiracy in Belgravia by Sherry Thomas

I was enthralled with the idea of a female Sherlock Holmes and was beyond thrilled to get an advanced reader copy of A Conspiracy in Belgravia. This story is the second installment in the Lady Sherlock series and it was truly a fun read. The mystery was layered and oh so good! This story starts directly after the conclusion of the first book, A Study in Scarlet Women, and this […]

Review: Mary Poser by Angel A

The first thing I must say is I love the play on words for this title. Spanish for butterfly: Mariposa and the Title: Mary Poser.  Too cute! If that was never the intention well then, I think I am clever anyway. 🤣 Mary Poser is written as a conventional southern woman. She comes from a religious family with her father being the local Pastor. Her background has led her to be […]


Worth the Wait by Lori Foster

Worth the Wait by Lori Foster

Most of the time, romance books focus on one couple but in Worth the Wait the story follows the relationship of two couples. Hogan Guthrie, Violet Shaw and Nathan Hawley, Brooklin Sweet are two couples with very different starts. When considering this book for a review, I was curious to see how this story would flow with two different romance storylines. I was delighted that both storylines were unique but […]

**This story is also titled as “The Summer Seaside Kitchen” with an alternate cover** The Cafe by the Sea is an endearing tale about a woman who is trying to come to her own after a tragedy strikes that created a rift between her family. She was able to push them from her mind until she was faced with going back to her home. Little did she know that returning […]


Where Hearts Meet by Maureen Driscoll

Where Hearts Meet by Maureen Driscoll

When reading the synopsis for Where Hearts Meet that was the sentence that caught my eye in particular and I knew I had to read this book. I was curious to see how Arabella would go about convincing Jonathan that he, indeed, did not need a wife. Why did Jonathan need to advertise for a wife in the first place? I was delighted to get my hands on a copy […]

Knock Before You Enter by D.A. Bale

Knock Before You Enter is the third book in the Bartender Babe Chronicles. It follows Vicki as she heads off to Louisiana to spend a week on vacation with her best friend Janine at Janine’s grandmother’s estate. Too bad Janine’s brother, George, is also there. That character is such a creep. Vicki has not been to the De’Laruse estate in years and much has changed. Addie the De’Laruse matriarch has […]

Think Before You Speak by D.A. Bale

This is the second installment in The Bartender Babe Chronicles and I found it to be witty, humorous, and a real page turner. I do not know what it is about the character of Vicki Bohanan but she just keeps me entertained page after page. It might be that she is not perfect and that although she makes plenty of mistakes she always wants the best for those she cares […]


Three Fat Singletons by J.M. Bartholomew

Three Fat Singletons by J.M. Bartholomew

When you read this story, you need to keep in mind is that it is written in British English and it is heavy in slang. This story follows around three main characters who share a bond of friendship. The main thread running through this story is that they are all looking for love and in the case of this book, it is in all the wrong places. The real draw […]


Look Before You Jump by D.A. Bale

Look Before You Jump by D.A. Bale

A big-mouth, partying Southerner with more guts than brains at times is not exactly my favorite type of character but Vicky Bohanan is a quirky character that has a flavor of her own. Her character comes off as having issues with her Dad and pretty much every member of the society she grew up in but when you get into the story you see that she really has a problem […]

A Perilous Undertaking by Deanna Raybourn

It can never be denied that author Deanna Raybourn knows how to write a great mystery. I absolutely love reading a book that carries a mystery until the bitter end with plenty of twists and turns on the way. This newest book in the Veronica Speedwell Series delivered just that. In this installment I find that some of the criticisms I had for the first book have been resolved but some of […]

Love Literary Style by Karin Gillespie

Entertaining, romantic and an emotional delight. I wanted to read this book because the idea of a literary author and an inexperience romance author coming together sounded like a train wreck in the making and I was curious to see how the author would make this work. Turns out that I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story. Ms. Gillespie did a fantastic job of bringing these two worlds together. Laurie Lee […]

Burning September by Melissa Simonson

Compelling, engaging, and emotionally provoking! When I started to read this story I was not sure how I was going to feel about it. After all, everything is explained right up front but it is truly about the journey of Kat who essentially grew up in the shadow of her older sister Caroline. Reading this, I was totally engaged from the start. I loved this story! Katya is the main […]

Infamous by Lori Sizemore

Believable, charismatic and entertaining! This storyline is not one you would run across that often and I love that. It is written as realistically as I can imagine. After all I am not familiar with the lifestyles of the rich and famous 🙂 but I could see that this is how it might go down. This story is told from the alternating viewpoints of Justine and Sawyer. I love, love, […]

Merry Me by Amanda Siegrist

Charming, poignant and a real page turner! First off I just love the title. Great word play and it is an adorable book. This a sweet little Christmas love story that also has elements of anger, loss, romance, humor and lust. Just an all over feel good story that keeps you entertained from start to finish. Lynn’s character was written as a woman who is trying to make ends meet […]

The Name I Call Myself by Beth Moran

Charming, heartbreaking and yet utterly lovely! This was an endearing novel with elements of friendship, humor, darkness, danger, heartbreak, love and healing. The author was able to tie many subplots together in such a smooth way that it made for a realistic story that had me all misty-eyed by the end. Faith Harp’s character, hmmmm, ok I liked her character and understood the choices she made and why but at […]

The Hunger Pains by Chelsea Field

What is there not to love about this book? Hmmm, since you have not read it yet I will tell you. It is wonderful and there is nothing unlovable about it! I can say wholeheartedly that the first book in this series, Eat, Pray, Die, was not a one-hit wonder! The Hunger Pains is a welcomed addition to what is becoming one of favorite must follow series. Izzy is back […]
