I Heart Forever by Lindsey Kel...

<i>I Heart Forever</i> by Lindsey Kelk

In I Heart Forever, Kelk takes us back to her New York, as previously explored in the last six installments of this series. It’s a New York full of promise, hijinks, and beautiful people who possess kindness and warmth. Like a fairyland of sorts, for sure, but an utterly delightful fiction to indulge in. Angela’s life […]

Waiting for Ethan by Diane Ba...

<i> Waiting for Ethan</i> by Diane Barnes

  Waiting for Ethan is a charming book that I would happily pass on to my mother – who likes her romances fluffy and happy, heavy on romance and light on sex. My only real problem with it is a typical one of debut novels – Barnes ends the book before it is finished. I […]

Always the Bridesmaid by Linds...

<i>Always the Bridesmaid</i> by Lindsey Kelk

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 […]

Who Do You Love by Jennifer W...

<i>Who Do You Love </i> by Jennifer Weiner

  Who Do You Love is the latest work from NYT Bestseller and Twitter superstar, Jennifer Weiner who I have been reading faithfully since her first book, Good in Bed. This book is absolutely classic Weiner – flawed but believable characters who learn to love themselves before they can love others. This one is about Rachel and […]

House Trained by Jackie Boucha...

<i>House Trained</i> by Jackie Bouchard

House Trained is women’s fiction novel about Alex, an interior decorator, her husband, Barry and their dog Marie. A committed child-free couple, their house is like a shrine to Alex’s exquisite tastes and one she is exceptionally proud of. She finds the brood being raised by her sister to be unnecessarily messy and annoying and […]

It Started with Paris by Cathy...

<i>It Started with Paris</i> by Cathy Kelly

  For anyone who hasn’t read a Cathy Kelly book before, know this: she is one of the premiere women’s fiction authors in Ireland and It Started with Paris is an excellent example of why. A sprawling cast of characters that all end up interconnected at different points in the story – because everyone does […]

The Square by Rosie Millard

<i>The Square</i> by Rosie Millard

  The Square by Rosie Millard is one of those “slice of life” books in the tradition of Maeve Binchy. While there certainly is a plot, the book is more about the rhythms of life the characters move in. Centered around an upper-middle class housing square around a private garden in London (think the lovely […]

Has to Be Love by Jolene Perry

<i>Has to Be Love</i> by Jolene Perry

  Has to Be Love is a YA releasing in September and one worth putting on your list. Clara is an aspiring writer who lives in Knik, Alaska – which sounds to be in the middle of absolutely nowhere – with a dream of going to Columbia University. She has a lovely sounding boyfriend, Elias, a doting […]

The Queen’s Vow: A Novel of ...

<i>The Queen’s Vow: A Novel of Isabella of Castile</i> by C.W. Gortner

  The Queen’s Vow is the latest book in my on-going project of trying to read as much as I can about women leaders throughout history. I am slowly realizing, as I move through adulthood, how little I know about the women who have gone before me that have shaped the world. I know more […]
