Between the Sheets by Molly O&...

<i>Between the Sheets</i> by Molly O’Keefe

  Between the Sheets was recommended to me by a social worker friend a few months ago. We were talking about how diseases which affect the elderly are rarely written about in romance novels, because so few of them deal with that population. She explained she was at a conference on alternative methods of care […]

Pretending to Dance by Diane C...

<i>Pretending to Dance</i> by Diane Chamberlain

  Pretending to Dance is listed as a psychological thriller on Amazon and I’m not quite sure I’d go there.

Animal Attraction by Jill Shal...

A Taste of Sugar has all of those things – sans the dog. It does, however, have a sheep. Long story. Southerners remain a little bit […]

The Guest Cottage by Nancy Tha...

<i>The Guest Cottage</i> by Nancy Thayer

Nancy Thayer’s The Guest Cottage is a delightful novel set on the picturesque island of Nantucket where a divorcee and widower find love as their families meld together. I have never read anything by Thayer before – but in reading the reviews on Goodreads this is a very typical example of her work. It’s an enveloping […]
