Book Review: The Astonishing Thing by Sandi Ward

Book Review: Bountiful by Sarina Bowen

Sarina Bowen’s True North series is one of my favorites. It has my combination of a few amazing qualities – heart, humor, well developed characters, and a solid world that I can get lost in quite easily. The previous three books were ones that I’ve adored for individual reasons. Each book had things that I either connected with or was so well written that I immediately needed to tell other to read so I could discuss. Bountiful is the latest addition to the True North family and it’s really no different – in a great way. Continue reading “Book Review: Bountiful by Sarina Bowen”

Eve Dallas and Harry Potter: Why I Love Them

I’m assuming I’m one of the few people out there who hasn’t read every book of the In Death series by J.D. Robb or the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. If there are still a few of you out there that haven’t given either of these series a chance, keep reading. I’ll tell you my story and try to convince you it’s time to give these books a try.

Book Review: Good Me Bad Me by Ali Land

Ali Land’s Good Me Bad Me seemed to pop up everywhere I turned, so I was excited to win a copy from the publisher. I couldn’t wait to see if it was going to be as good as everyone said, but it didn’t live up to the hype, in my opinion. Continue reading “Book Review: Good Me Bad Me by Ali Land”

Book Review: Half Past by Victoria Helen Stone

While my preferred genre is romance to read, I do branch out occasionally and read a wide variety of genres and lately I’ve been reading a ton of suspense. So I figured what would be better than a suspense written by a romance writer? Under the name Victoria Dahl she writes funny romances that I generally love. She decided to branch out and didn’t want to have readers get confused when they got something darker so chose a different pen name for these. Continue reading “Book Review: Half Past by Victoria Helen Stone”

Book Review: The Stolen Marriage by Diane Chamberlain

Diane Chamberlain’s latest, The Stolen Marriage, didn’t grab me with both hands at first. Once it did – what a story it turned out to be! Continue reading “Book Review: The Stolen Marriage by Diane Chamberlain”
