Review: The Storm Sister by Lucinda Riley

Review: The Storm Sister by Lucinda Riley

contemporary, historical, Lucinda Riley 2

The Storm Sister – and its series – captivates me on many levels. The dual timeline is presented both seamlessly and creatively, and each story had multiple layers to uncover. As a series, the overarching thread of the sisters and their mysterious adoptive father continued to intrigue me – and new depths and questions were added that have me anxiously waiting for the next installment.

Review: A Refuge at Highland Hall by Carrie Turansky

Review: A Refuge at Highland Hall by Carrie Turansky

Carrie Turansky, Christian, historical, romance 2

World War 1 Flying Aces and German Zeppelins zoom across the pages of A Refuge at Highland Hall, the challenges of war meticulously researched and creatively conveyed. The beginnings of new love spark for two couples in this story, tempered by the separation of war – be it by deployment or internment – but allowing the power of the written word to fan the heart’s spark into a steady and enduring flame is truly the stuff of great romance! My favorite of the Edwardian Brides series, A Refuge at Highland Hall is best appreciated if read in context (the characters!!) though it can also be read as a standalone.

Review: The Cowboy’s Bride Collection

Jaime Jo Wright’s writing voice makes me smile, and the bits of humor she threaded through The Cowgirl’s Lasso made that smile even wider. From the dime novels to the spider attack – even the nod to pal Erica Vetsch’s The Legend of Obadiah Walker – you will find plenty of reasons to smile too!
