What Happens Under the Mistletoe

<i>What Happens Under the Mistletoe</i> – Various Authors

Christmas books! Christmas books! I love Christmas books! Anthologies are hit or miss for me – short stories can go either way. Sometimes they’re perfectly pint size stories, sometimes they’re poorly paced and only serve to frustrate me that they should have been full length novels. I’m always willing to give one a go (after all, […]

The Duke and Miss Christmas by ...

<i>The Duke and Miss Christmas<i> by Amelia Grey

The Duke and Miss Christmas is a charming little novel set in Grey’s Heirs’ Club of Scoundrels series and I’d absolutely recommend it for anyone who is a fan of that series. Anyone else may find the family connections and short hands of relationships a bit confusing, but the book is delightful nonetheless. The book […]

The Reasons to Stay by Laura D...

<i>The Reasons to Stay</i> by Laura Drake

  The Reasons to Stay, a Harlequin/Mills & Boon Super Romance, is a fabulous book that I enjoyed from cover to cover. It’s one of those that grabs you quickly and encourages you to invest in these people nearly immediately. Pris, our heroine, is not a lady who likes connections. However, life forces her hand […]

The Impossible Knife of Memory...

<i>The Impossible Knife of Memory</i> by Laurie Halse Anderson

  The Impossible Knife of Memory is a whopper of a book. I don’t mean that in terms of length – it’s a fairly standard YA length. I mean it in terms of content. I felt pummeled by this book. Dealing with themes of childhood giving way to adulthood without a stop at adolescence, how to […]

What to Do with a Duke by Sall...

<i>What to Do with a Duke</i> by Sally MacKenzie

  Sally MacKenzie is one of those authors I’ve known of for years. I saw her books on shelves, heard them recommended on podcasts, but for whatever reason never picked one up. When I saw What to Do with a Duke up for request on NetGalley I jumped at the chance to get to know this […]

Wildest Dreams by Robyn Carr

<i>Wildest Dreams </i> by Robyn Carr

  Robyn Carr is an author known for gentle romances set in small towns where people who were broken find wholeness. Wildest Dreams, the latest in her series set in Thunder Point, is no exception. Blake and Lin Su are our couple in this one – but other familiar characters play featured roles as well. Carr […]

If You Only Knew by Kristan Hi...

<i>If You Only Knew</i> by Kristan Higgins

  “Oh,” I said to myself as I looked at the clock last night, noting it was about 11pm. I had just completed another review and was ready to move onto this new work by Higgins – something I had been greatly anticipating. “I guess I’ll read the first few chapters to get a feel […]

Within Reach by Sarah Mayberry

<i>Within Reach</i> by Sarah Mayberry

  I first heard about Sarah Mayberry‘s work from the Smart Bitches Trashy Books podcast (a favorite!) and scurried to my library website to get whatever book I could. Within Reach was the first one available and quickly cemented my love of Mayberry. This book has stuck with me and considering how many books I read, to […]
