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

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: “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: “Book of Love,” by Erin Satie

Happy Tuesday, all! I am thoroughly wiped out, but man am I behind on my ARCs. And it is a crying shame, because Book of Love was a little gem of an historical romance. Not all my cup of tea, but light, fun, and a hint of sexy. So without further ado... From the Publisher: … Continue reading ARC Review: “Book of Love,” by Erin Satie

Book Review: “The Awakening,” by Nora Roberts

Happy weekend, all! I am taking this opportunity to some of my "backfill" from this year - man, am I behind! But, there has been so many amazing books out this year and last, is it any surprise my reading is outpacing my reviewing?! One of the books I swore I would get around to … Continue reading Book Review: “The Awakening,” by Nora Roberts

Book Review: “The Queen’s Bargain,” by Anne Bishop

Happy Thursday, all! What a week, am I right?! I received the ARC for The Queen's Weapons recently, and since it comes out March 9, I know it was time to get off my butt and read book one. I have been semi-avoiding The Queen's Bargain for a while now - this came in the … Continue reading Book Review: “The Queen’s Bargain,” by Anne Bishop

Book Review: Deanna Raybourn’s “A Dangerous Collaboration”

For those of you who have seen this blog before, you may know of my obsession with this series. I recently (too recently) posted my review of the last book, A Treacherous Curse, and before had reviewed the first book here. That being said, it took me a little while to process this book before reviewing it, because … Continue reading Book Review: Deanna Raybourn’s “A Dangerous Collaboration”

Anne Bishop’s new book for The Others series, “Etched in Bone,” out March 7!

Thank you, Netgalley and Roc, for an ARC for one of my favorite series, The Others! I am so excited to review this, and have already pre-ordered my hard copy. "Just a game. Simon thought we'd had great fun. Bet the other wolves did too." "And you?" Monty said. "We look at the same things, … Continue reading Anne Bishop’s new book for The Others series, “Etched in Bone,” out March 7!

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

Out Today!! The City Baker’s Guide to Country Living by Louise Miller

Thank you, Penguin's First to Read, for this pretty little read! The City Baker's Guide to Country Living by Louise Miller is a debut novel, and Louise Miller is a pastry chef herself so this is a real treat (pun intended). Enter Olivia, 30-year-old pastry chef extraordinaire who flambées her way out of a job when she accidentally … Continue reading Out Today!! The City Baker’s Guide to Country Living by Louise Miller
