Book Review: “Bringing Down the Duke,” by Evie Dunmore

Another week, another amazing romcom! Only this time, historical romance is the name of the game. Bringing Down the Duke was recommended by a friend and I will never be able to repay her because League of Extraordinary Women may be my new favorite historical fiction series! Women's suffrage and hot dukes and scandals, oh … Continue reading Book Review: “Bringing Down the Duke,” by Evie Dunmore

But would can't love … Continue reading ARC Review: “Little Black Book,” by Kate Carlisle

Review: “A Thousand Salt Kisses” by Josie Demuth

To preface, I received A Thousand Salt Kisses by Josie Demuth as a Netgalley ARC in exchange for an honest review. I was torn between a two star or three star rating for this because the story did have good bones and an intriguing plot, but the characterization and writing were just not up to snuff. Mermen, island … Continue reading Review: “A Thousand Salt Kisses” by Josie Demuth
