Review: The Art of Running in Heels by Rachel Gibson

The Art of Running is Heels is the seventh book in the Chinooks Hockey Team series and a perfect read for fans of television series such as Bachelor. Although this is not a story about being a contestant who is actively trying to land the man. Actually, Lexie Kowalsky was the winning bachelorette and this story is about what happens to the woman who was about to get married to […]

Review: The Simple Soul of Susan by Noel Branham

When reading the synopsis, you may think this story is a simple friends to lovers romance but The Simple Soul of Susan is more than a simple love story. This story starts when Susan is a teenager in high school dealing with typical high school drama. For Susan though she has an extra caveat to deal with because her best friend is the most popular guy in school that all […]

Review: Sins of the Fathers by A.J. McCarthy

Sins of the Fathers was a nicely done mystery that had elements of intrigue, suspense, and danger. The main character Charlene Butler owns a pub that she adores and everything in her life was as it should be. Though, due to her commitment to her business she did not have many close relationships with the exception of her employee Frank but she was okay with that. So, when she received […]

Review: Mischief in Mudbug by Jana Deleon

I am a huge fan of Author Jana Deleon’s cozy mysteries. Mischief in Mudbug was no exception. Sabine’s character was introduced in book one of this series and I liked her immensely. In this story, things take a turn for the worst for Sabine’s character and even though she had failed to find any family members over the past decade, she really needs to now. Sabine has had health scares […]

Review: As Bright As Heaven by Susan Meissner

As Bright As Heaven starts in 1918 just before the onset of the Spanish flu pandemic and is told in different time periods. Some being month to month then the narration will skip a few years and then move around some more. This story begins after the devastating loss of Henry, the Bright’s youngest child. His death had profoundly affected this family and although Pauline Bright had made it through […]

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 […]

Review: Behind the Scenes by Jen Turano

Behind the Scenes is a series starter for the Apart from the Crowd series. I was first turned onto Author Jen Turano’s work with the A Class of Their Own series and when I learned that she had a new series starting, I was very excited to start reading. Took me a bit of time to start reading Behind the Scenes but it is just adorable and I found it […]

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

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 […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]
