Review: The Angel Court Affair by Anne Perry

Review: The Angel Court Affair by Anne Perry

Anne Perry is one of the most prolific writers in our time. She has two Victorian mystery series that together comprise 50 (or more) books. That is amazing! I’ve read half a dozen of the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt series, and I generally don’t like them as well as the William Monk series. But this one… this one was different. It was more of a thoughtful and psychological mystery, than a “found a dead body, now we need to find the killer” story. A female […]

Review: Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

Review: Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

This book was recommended by friends who know I love Young Adult dystopian/futuristic stories. While the geek in me loved the tech in this book (there are days when I think I might prefer a world like that), and I could certainly appreciate the references to 70s/80s culture (Rush 2112 was my favorite album in high school), this is going to be a slow read for teens and a lot of parents will not approve. We see the world from the point of view of […]

Review: Chasing Midnight by Ranae Glass

Review: Chasing Midnight by Ranae Glass

Isabel Stone as back at it—trying to earn a living as a private detective in a crazy world of vampires, werewolves, and now ghosts! This second book in the series did not disappoint—well, except for the fact that the next book doesn’t come out until 2016. The dialog and characterizations were wonderful. As with book 1, Chasing Daylight, I loved the sassy voice of the main character, Isabel. She had me laughing so many times. This woman is tough as nails, but has a soft […]

Review: Chasing Daybreak by Ranae Glass

Review: Chasing Daybreak by Ranae Glass

I loved this book! I was immediately hooked into the story and could not put it down! Isobel Stone is a great character—strong and sassy. She is no shrinking violet, and it’s a good thing because life just won’t give her a break. Her father dies and she puts her own dreams aside to take over his private investigating company. She’s left at the altar by her fiancé. Her mother and sisters rely on her for emotional and financial support. And then there are the […]

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: Drowning by Jenni James

Review: Drowning by Jenni James

Drowning  is the first of six novellas in the Revitalizing Jane series by Jenni James. Known for her Young Adult Faerie Tale Collection and her Jane Austen Diaries, this is a new genre for James. Drowning is most definitely for adult readers as it deals with the sensitive subject of marital abuse. We meet Jane more than a year after her divorce. Her children want her to date again and she reluctantly agrees. As the book proceeds, hints are dropped here and there letting us […]

Review: And Something Blue by Paige Timothy

Review: And Something Blue by Paige Timothy

Trifecta Books has just started a Sweet & Clean Romance Collection which includes And Something Blue from the Main Street Merchants series. Set in the small town of Aspen Ridge, Colorado, the series will feature love stories by author Paige Timothy and will involve the owners and employees of the shops on Main Street. For me to really enjoy a romance, there must be more to the story. I prefer romance to be the backdrop, and if it’s not then the characters have to be […]

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 […]
