Arc Review + Giveaway: The Ghost Host by DelSheree Gladden

Arc Review + Giveaway: The Ghost Host by DelSheree Gladden

I don’t usually enjoy ghost stories. They freak me out. But something about the synopsis of The Ghost Host by DelSheree Gladden intrigued me. I’ve never read anything by her before, so I was willing to give it a try. Zara and Holden have both known me since kindergarten, before things got bad, but not before the ghosts. The ghost have always been there. Even now, there’s at least six of them standing around the table, hoping I’ll acknowledge them. I don’t. The Ghost Host […]

ARC Review + Giveaway: Lord Fenton’s Folly by Josi S. Kilpack

ARC Review + Giveaway: Lord Fenton’s Folly by Josi S. Kilpack

Whenever I review a romance here, I always feel the need to add a disclaimer. I don’t like romances. I don’t usually read them by choice. But I have loved every single book that I’ve read by Josi S. Kilpack, and so when she started writing Regency Romances, I knew eventually I’d cave and read them. And you know what? I loved Lord Fenton’s Folly! For me, a good regency romance is all about the characters. We first meet Alice and Lord Fenton while they […]

Review + Giveaway: Gone for a Soldier by Marsha Ward

Review + Giveaway: Gone for a Soldier by Marsha Ward

I probably only read five or six historical novels a year. While I don’t dislike them, I’m just usually more into contemporary or speculative fiction. But when Marsha Ward has a new book out, I make sure it hits my ‘To Read’ pile. I was first introduced to Marsha’s books with Trail of Storms, book #3 in the Owen Family Saga. I loved it. I quickly read The Man from Shenandoah (#1) and Ride to Raton (#2), then I had to wait awhile for Spinster’s […]

Review + Giveaway: For Elise by Sarah M. Eden

Review + Giveaway: For Elise by Sarah M. Eden

I almost never read romance. I tell you this upfront so that 1) you understand that I have a bias against romances, and 2) you will recognize that if I loved a particular romance, it is something pretty special. To be clear, less than 10% of what I read by choice could be classified as a romance. But when Sarah M. Eden has a new romance out, I’m first in line to get it! To me, Sarah Eden’s writing brings to mind the clever, rich […]

Dearly Departed by Tristi Pinkston

Dearly Departed by Tristi Pinkston

When Secret Sisters (book #1) came out last year, I read it because Tristi Pinkston is a friend of mine. That is the extent of the promise I give to my author friends: that I will read their books. Period. If I like it, I’ll review it here on my blog. Which I did. (Here) If I really like it, I’ll help them with promos and contests. Which I did. But if I absolutely LOVE it, I’ll buy a bunch of copies and give it […]

Farworld: Water Keep by J. Scott Savage

Farworld: Water Keep by J. Scott Savage

I was one of the lucky ones to get an ARC of Farworld: Water Keep by J. Scott Savage. I looked forward to reading it because I’ve really enjoyed his Shandra Covington series (House of Secrets and Dead On Arrival). I love fantasy so when the package came, I ripped it open and started reading right away. I’ve had to wait to post my review—and that’s been hard because I’ve wanted to share the love for the two main characters in this book. Water Keep […]
