Book Review

Book Review: The Things We Knew by Catherine West

After their mother’s death twelve years ago, the Carlisle family unraveled. One by one, all but one of the four siblings left their Nantucket home and never returned. All seem to blame their father for their mother’s death, but nobody will talk about that tragic day. Their father’s failing health and financial concerns finally bring the Carlisle siblings back home. Continue reading “Book Review: The Things We Knew by Catherine West”

Book Review: Citywide by Santino Hassell

Citywide is Five Boroughs #6 – a novella grouping of stories about three sets of characters we’ve seen throughout the first 5 books in this series. First of all I ADORE this cover. It is simply beautiful and in my opinion perfect for a book that can’t be pinned down since it covers literally the whole spectrum of relationships – male/male, female/female, male/female, poly…everything. So this cover is great since this series encompasses the city perfectly as well. Continue reading “Book Review: Citywide by Santino Hassell”

Book Review: The Uncrossing by Melissa Eastlake

This is a surprising debut from Melissa Eastlake. Heavy on the paranormal elements with dashes of fairy tales and quite a lot of sarcasm and humor thrown in, this m/m book was one that I really enjoyed from beginning to end. Continue reading “Book Review: The Uncrossing by Melissa Eastlake”

Book Review: In This Moment by Karen Kingsbury

Christian Fiction is a genre that does not appeal to everyone. In my opinion, Karen Kingsbury is the Queen and I look forward to each of her books because they always hold a lesson I need at the time. Continue reading “Book Review: In This Moment by Karen Kingsbury”

Book Review: Cherish Hard by Nalini Singh

Book Review: The Astonishing Thing by Sandi Ward

Think A Dog’s Purpose (W. Bruce Cameron) only with a cat … kind of. Continue reading “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. Continue reading “Eve Dallas and Harry Potter: Why I Love Them”
