🎄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: 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 […]

Review: Breakaway by Sophia Henry with Giveaway

***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. […]

Review: Perfect Love by Amanda Cowen with Giveaway

***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: The Ninth Circle by C.A. Harland

Review: The Ninth Circle by C.A. Harland

The Ninth Circle was entertaining, fast paced and I liked the idea of the circles. Basically, think of the circles as levels of supernatural criminal activity. The lower the number the lower the threat. Each division was tasked with a different activity and were overseen by demons. What the characters of this story were unaware of was that there was a puppeteer pulling their strings and they were just the […]

Review, Q&A, Giveaway: The Goblins of Bellwater by Molly Ringle

Curses, goblins, and romance, Oh my! The Goblins of Bellwater may have been inspired by the poem “Goblin Market” by Christina Rossetti but it definitely has its own creative flair. Skye Darwen and her sister Livy Darwen had plenty of whimsy and creativity when they were children. Skye being a young adult still held on to some of her childhood whimsy of fairy tale folk skirting around in the woods […]

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 […]

Review: Haunting the Deep by Adriana Mather

I was quite interested in reading a good paranormal story and when I came across a book that not only had a paranormal element but it revolved around the Titanic, I knew I had to read it! Haunting the Deep is the second book in the How to Hang a Witch series. This is a series that I would recommend reading in series order. Although the mystery in this book […]
