ARC Review: “Witcha Gonna Do?” by Avery Flynn

Hey witches! I have discovered my new favorite genre of the year: witchy smut romance. It makes perfect sense really - the advent and current modernization of the romance genre, combined with witches (since general "paranormal" romance had its heyday in the mid-2000s) makes for refreshingly modern, sexy, fun romances that are female forward. Avery … Continue reading ARC Review: “Witcha Gonna Do?” by Avery Flynn

ARC Review: “The Woman in the Library,” by Sulari Gentill

Hello happy readers! I am again late on an ARC, but feel this may work in my favor. The Woman in the Library by Sulari Gentill is an atmospheric, meta novel that has just enough creeping dread to make it a great fall read, despite its June release date. Thank you, Netgalley and Poisoned Pen … Continue reading ARC Review: “The Woman in the Library,” by Sulari Gentill

ARC Review: “Death by Beach Read,” by Eva Gates

Ah, the solstice approaches. The longest day of the year, the beginning of summer, and a most sacred day. As the solstice approaches, I try to be kinder to myself. This year, I have been a bad blogger. I have been sporadic and have read books that remain unreviewed and never took the time to … Continue reading ARC Review: “Death by Beach Read,” by Eva Gates

ARC Review: “The Merchant and the Rogue,” by Sarah M. Eden

Happy Hurricane Henri, y'all! For those of you who don't know me, I am am east coast gal, and we are sitting with bated breathe waiting for Henri to arrive on our doorsteps and kick some branches down. I happen to love storms (a bit of a blasphemous opinion around here), but we are prepping … Continue reading ARC Review: “The Merchant and the Rogue,” by Sarah M. Eden

ARC Review: “Murder in Connemara,” by Carlene O’Connor

Another day, another cozy set in Ireland. I am a sucker for all things Ireland/Scotland, and when that obsession intersects with my love of all cozies, you get a no brainer. Carlene O'Connor writes another cozy series set in Ireland called Irish Village Mystery, but the Home to Ireland series is a little newer (Murder … Continue reading ARC Review: “Murder in Connemara,” by Carlene O’Connor

ARC Review: “The Beach Reads Book Club,” by Kathryn Freeman

Another day, another late ARC review. However, I had such a blast reading The Beach Reads Book Club! I requested this book from Netgalley and Harper Collins UK because I am a sucker for everything book related, and the idea of a fun, kitschy romance book club on a beach is basically me in a … Continue reading ARC Review: “The Beach Reads Book Club,” by Kathryn Freeman

ARC Review: “A Glimmer of a Clue,” by Daryl Wood Gerber

Happy Friday, all! I am a tad delinquent on this review, though in my defense I finished the book on time! A Glimmer of a Clue is book two in the Fairy Garden Mystery series by Daryl Wood Gerber, and I can confidently say it is much better than book one (I had the pleasure … Continue reading ARC Review: “A Glimmer of a Clue,” by Daryl Wood Gerber

ARC Review: “Little Black Book,” by Kate Carlisle

Hello all! What a week. I have been cramming at work and cramming my ARCs, two of which are out next week! Little Black Book is from one of my favorite cozy series, Kate Carlisle's Bibliophile Mystery series. At number 15, this series is still fun, albeit with some minor quirks. But would can't love … Continue reading ARC Review: “Little Black Book,” by Kate Carlisle

ARC Review: “The Bookshop of Second Chances,” by Jackie Fraser

Happy Saturday, all! Wishing everyone in the U.S. a relaxing long weekend, and a contemplative Memorial Day. It is raining this whole weekend where I am, which on the one hand is a major bummer for what the first week of "summer" should be, is great for my reading! It also gives me a great … Continue reading ARC Review: “The Bookshop of Second Chances,” by Jackie Fraser

ARC Review: “Murder in the Cookbook Nook,” by Ellery Adams

Another day, another week, another late ARC. And yet another unforgiveable ARC, because Ellery Adams is the bomb! She is another one of my favorite cozy writers, and I was honored to have Netgalley and Kensington let me have this opportunity. Murder in the Cookbook Nook came out two weeks ago, and book seven of … Continue reading ARC Review: “Murder in the Cookbook Nook,” by Ellery Adams
