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: 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: Temporary by Sarina Bowen & Sarah Mayberry

So co written books are seriously my catnip apparently. I can think of half a dozen pairs of authors that write together that I adore! Megan Erickson and Santino Hassell. Avon Gale and Roan Parrish. Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy…and now Sarina Bowen and Sarah Mayberry joins that list with this romantic comedy book of their, Temporary. I was super excited when they announced it. I’m a well known Sarina fan because hello, who isn’t? But I’ve also been a big Sarah fan for years! So I was all around reccing my favorites of hers. If you haven’t read Her Favorite Temptation or Her Best Worst Mistake…run, don’t walk to get them. OH and Satisfaction and Anticipation– holy crap, you are in for a treat!
