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 […]

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 […]

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?

America’s Next Reality Star by Laura Heffernan

I wanted to read America’s Next Reality Star because I was curious to see how convincing the storyline would be. Would it be believable? Would it compare to what I think the process would be like? I can say that I have only ever watched reality shows like Hell’s Kitchen and Face Off. I am not really a connoisseur of reality television but this story was very convincing. I really […]

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, […]

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 […]
