Book Review: A Stardance Summer by Emily March

Emily March takes me back to one of my favorite fictional towns in the latest edition of her Eternity Springs series. Continue reading “Book Review: A Stardance Summer by Emily March”

Book Review: My Roommate’s Girl by Julianna Keyes

If you haven’t read Julianna Keyes before, this is a great book to start with! It’s not part of a series, there’s no connections to any other books so it’s a great place to start with an excellent author. Continue reading “Book Review: My Roommate’s Girl by Julianna Keyes”

Book Review – Coach’s Challenge by Avon Gale

Coach’s Challenge is the next in one of my favorite series – the Scoring Chances series by Avon Gale. I’m a huge fan of hockey books (hello Sarina Bowen!) and a friend introduced me to Gale’s writing last year and since then I’ve devoured literally every single thing she has ever published. I’m not exaggerating when I say that all of them have been 4, 4.5, or 5 stars. So any time there’s a new one I’m there for it! Continue reading “Book Review – Coach’s Challenge by Avon Gale”

Book Review: The Last Place You Look by Kristen Lepionka

More twists and turns than the curviest back road you can image! What happened to Sarah Cook? That’s what PI Roxane Weary is charged with finding out. Continue reading “Book Review: The Last Place You Look by Kristen Lepionka”

Book Review: Sight Unseen Anthology

I completely love the idea of this project. 5 authors wrote short stories/novellas for an anthology…not that exciting right? Well, they decided that they would not reveal which author wrote which story! I think that’s a pretty amazing project to undertake. Everyone has authors they love. I do. Some of those authors are autobuy authors for me and some authors I am much more inclined to buy a book if their name is attached to it – even if the synopsis doesn’t sound all that great. They’re going to reveal who wrote what story in 3 months. I’m going to make my guesses now and see how good I am! Continue reading “Book Review: Sight Unseen Anthology”

Blog Tour/Review: Strong Enough by Melanie Harlow & David Romanov

I’m a fan of Melanie Harlow writing on her own so I was looking forward to her first male/male romance. Plus she was co-writing with David Romanov. Some of my favorite books are written by pairs so I was solidly here for this one. Continue reading “Blog Tour/Review: Strong Enough by Melanie Harlow & David Romanov”

Book Review: MatchUp Anthology

MatchUp is the follow-up to 2014’s FaceOff and teams up a female thriller writer with a male thriller writer. One of each writer’s main characters will pair up for a bit of mystery solving. Continue reading “Book Review: MatchUp Anthology”

Book Review: Small Change by Roan Parrish

I’ve loved Roan Parrish’s writing. The Out of Nowhere books really struck me as realistic and messy, with imperfect characters and ones that have stuck with me ever since. Rex kills me every time I read that book. I’ve listened to the audio of them numerous times because I just love them so much. The second book with Colin – ugh – just so perfect with its imperfections. I can’t recommend them enough. Continue reading “Book Review: Small Change by Roan Parrish”

Book Review: Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate

A well-written and compelling story. This is the first book I’ve read by Wingate and I’ll be checking out more of her work. Continue reading “Book Review: Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate”
