Poison is the New Black by Chelsea Field

This is the third installment in the Eat, Pray, Die Humorous Mystery series and I am finding that I am just loving this series! This story starts directly after the end of the “Taste of Christmas” novella. Izzy and Connor have just spent a few days together but duty calls and they need to get back to the real world. Their employment with the Taste Society can makes things quite […]

The Amaranthine Chronicles by Tiffany Shand

I reviewed a box set of three stories by Author Tiffany Shand. Below I have written a mini-review for each story in the series and given an individual rating per book. Overall I found that there were several aspects to this series that I enjoyed and some that I was meh about. What would have really hit the mark for me was being able to develop an emotional connection to […]

Bryant & May: Strange Tide by Christopher Fowler

Now I cannot say that I have read every Bryant & May book out there but I have read a few and I can say that this for me was one of my favorites. The last book I had read was at the beginning of Arthur’s mental deterioration so to have a conclusion to that saga was quite nice. This story starts out on rather a low note for the […]

The Edge of Everything by Jeff Giles

An amazing young adult debut that had me on the edge of my seat! I wanted to read this story because the main character is a bounty hunter from a hell called the lowlands. That alone sounded so intriguing and I was thrilled when I got my hands on this book! From the start, I was into X’s character. He just came on the scene appearing so strong and confident […]

The Sour Taste of Suspicion by CeeCee James

The Sour Taste of Suspicion is the third book of the Angel Lake Mystery Series. This is the first book that I have read from Author CeeCee James and it was a delightful cozy mystery. It was enjoyable how the story gave an old time feel but was set in the current day and age. Elise is the protagonist in this series with the aid of her best friend Lavina. […]

Three by Jane Blythe

Having read the previous two books in the Count to Ten series I can say that in order to appreciate this book fully you need to read the prior books. This story includes the killers from the previous two books and brings them together in a bizarre and twisted way. In addition, the main protagonists from the first two books are also intertwined in this plot. What follows is a […]

It’s You Book Two by Katy Regnery

This review is on the second book from the It’s You duology. When books are sectioned into halves and you loved the first book you wonder if the second half will live up to your expectations. Yes! Yes! Yes! This book was everything I wanted and more. From start to finish it is a roller coaster of emotion, angst and desire. Where the first part of this duology was the […]

The Pruxnae Series by Lucy Varna

I came across this series this past summer and found it to be fascinating! Currently there are four books in this series and since I have read them all I decided to do a post that had all four books with a mini-review of each. Thief of Hearts Book (The Pruxnae #2) On the eve of her appointment to the ranks of the elite Queen’s Guard, Alna Lomig bumps into […]

The Opposition by Alicia Bryant

I wanted to read this book because it seemed to be a light-hearted legal fiction with an element of romance. It was everything I anticipated and more. I found the entire story to be an entertaining, humorous, and a charming read! This story follows Sophia Grant an attorney who deals mainly with corporate clientele. When her best friend Michael is accused of leaking trade secrets he asks Sophia is she […]


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 […]


Man on the Run by Carl Weber

Man on the Run by Carl Weber

This story is told in alternating first person voice and it follows four main characters, Jay, Kyle, Wil, and Allen.  What a dynamic read with four very different personalities. Some of the situations they find themselves drawn into are almost on the cusp of unrealistic but not so unbelievable that it stops you from becoming engrossed in the story. There are lots of sexy times between these men and their […]

Taming a Laird’s Wild Lady by Tammy Andresen

I was very excited to get my hands on this book. When I read the previous installment in this series, Taming a Duke’s Wild Rose, I was introduced to the character of Elizabeth “Isla” Maddox. Even better was that there was a sneak peek of this story in the back of that book! I was hooked and snapped at the chance to read this story as soon as possible. Daring, […]

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 […]

Reckless Creed by Alex Kava

I really enjoyed the previous two books in this series, Ryder Creed. It made me very excited to get this book into my hands and see where things had gone with Ryder and his dogs. What I was not expecting was a thriller that brushes against a reality that is so terrifying. It is one of those situations that could be potentially happening now. I haven’t read a book that […]

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 […]

It’s You by K.P. Kelley

  When I read the synopsis of this book it peaked my interest. Hmmm, words like kissed, intense, and passion in a synopsis of a paranormal romance will intrigue me almost every time. Then let’s throw in a secret that could “rip or bind” the main characters?? Oh yes, I must know more. I will admit I am a fan of paranormal romance and this synopsis was my siren. Addicting, […]

Irene, Kai and Vale are back in this action-packed installment of The Invisible Library series, Honestly though, I think that all the stories are full of action 😉 and I love it. After reading two out of three books from this series I can say with sincerity that these books are best read in order. This story is heavily tied back to the plot from book number one with a […]
