Review: The Captive Imposter by Dawn Crandall

Posted March 11, 2016 / 6 Comments

Dawn Crandall masterfully crafts a story rich in vibrant setting, vivid characters, and sharp dialogue. Her scenes come alive, transplanting readers into Gilded Age New England and keeping them absorbed from the first word until the last. The characters she creates feel real and honest, and boy howdy can she write a kissing scene!

Follow my blog with Bloglovin This week on Top Ten Tuesday, we are talking about characters.  Technically the topic is about those characters that a) you alone dislike or b) you alone love.  But I kinda did that already (last year), so I decided to talk instead about those secondary […]


Review: On Lone Star Trail by Amanda Cabot

I have so enjoyed this series, and I am sad to see it come to an end – but On Lone Star Trail gave it the perfect sendoff. Amanda Cabot included all of the elements that make the series so entertaining while adding a few new twists as well! (While this is the third book in the TEXAS CROSSROADS series, it’s not necessary to have read the other two first.)

Do you see me jumping up and down right now? Well, I am (and you should probably be glad you in fact can NOT see me as it’s not pretty.)

I am honored to be the final stop on The Thorn Keeper blog tour with Singing Librarian Books. I am excited to talk about this latest book by Pepper Basham. And I cannot WAIT to remind you all why it made my KissingBooks 101 Lesson 2 post.

Now, y’all know me & you know that my values don’t exactly line up with a lot of Harlequin novels 😉 BUT there are several Harlequin imprints and authors that I do support. Plus, I thought this video was super cute, especially for those of us who tend to collect book boyfriends lol.

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!

Review (and a Giveaway!): Charity’s Cross by MaryLu Tyndall

Posted March 3, 2016 / 13 Comments

Every time I open a book by MaryLu Tyndall (which sadly hasn’t been as often as I would like), I am swept away from word one. Caught up in the story and unable – not to mention, unwilling – to tear myself from it. Charity’s Cross held true to this reader-kidnapping, freezing me in place with the very first sentence: “Charity killed her husband.”

Posted March 2, 2016 / 9 Comments

Dani Pettrey’s first offering in her new series is inventive, action-packed, and extremely well-written. Cold Shot bursts onto the scene with brilliant suspense and compelling characters that make it nearly impossible to put down. In fact, if you are at all prone to biting your nails when tensions are high, you may need to schedule a manicure once you’ve finished reading this novel!

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic (hosted as always by The Broke and the Bookish) is “books to read when you’re in the mood for ______”. I really enjoy these more open-ended themes because everyone’s posts have a greater chance of being tailored to their own personalities.

Review: Your New Money Mindset by Brad Hewitt & James Moline

Review: Your New Money Mindset by Brad Hewitt & James Moline

Posted February 28, 2016 / 0 Comments

I don’t know that I would recommend this book just by itself, as I think it would ultimately frustrate someone that genuinely wants to get out of debt or manage their finances. However, I do think it’s an important resource to use alongside other financial planning tools – to help you assess your attitude toward money and see why you feel financially insecure and/or unable to give as generously as you wish.

Review (and a Giveaway!): Always Watching by Lynette Eason

Posted February 28, 2016 / 69 Comments

Lynette Eason’s latest suspense offering is fast-paced, action-packed, and full of grace. Her writing talent is more than evident in the natural dialogue, the tension, the vivid characters. While romance is definitely present in the story, it never overshadows the suspense, making this an ideal choice both for people who do love kissingbooks and those who don’t.
