Mind Games by Stephanie Black

Mind Games by Stephanie Black

A Twisty-Turner Psychological Thriller MIND GAMES is book 2 in a new series featuring psychologist Natalie Marsh. The first book is NOT A WORD, which I haven’t reviewed here, but which was great. We’re introduced to Natalie and her personal story in that book. You don’t have to read that one to enjoy MIND GAMES, but it helps you to understand some of Natalie’s motivations and reactions. In MIND GAMES, Natalie is once again swept up in a mystery, where it soon becomes apparent that […]

The Rules in Rome by A.L. Sowards

The Rules in Rome by A.L. Sowards

A Thrilling World War 2 Historical, with a Dash of Romance I admit, historicals aren’t my favorite reads. But when they’re really, really good, I like them. This one is really good. This is a gripping and deadly story of valiant men and women, battling against the enemy in Nazi-occupied Italy. From sending coded messages back to the allies, to impersonating a German officer, the courage of these characters is amazing and inspiring. What did I think? First, the setting and the history was amazing. […]

Eleanor and the Iron King by Julie Daines

Eleanor and the Iron King by Julie Daines

A Medieval Romance that Feels like a fairy tale! From the description on Amazon, I thought this was going to be a fantasy. While there are some mysterious things happening, this is really a medieval romance. It reads a bit like a fairy tale, and I have no idea if its historically accurate. I’m assuming it is, but if it’s not I don’t really care. It feels very medieval and historic, and I loved it. What did I think? I loved pretty much everything about […]

{Review} Simply Anna by Jennifer Moore

{Review} Simply Anna by Jennifer Moore

Jennifer Moore is fast becoming one of my favorite regency romance authors—right up there with Sarah M. Eden and Jane Austen. I loved her first two books, Becoming Lady Lockwood  and Lady Emma’s Campaign. She has a few others that are still on my to-be-read list. As with the other two books I’ve read, Moore continues to write compelling and realistic characters for her time period, setting them in lush landscapes that add to the story without slowing it down. The main characters from those […]

{Review} Always Will by Melanie Jacobson

{Review} Always Will by Melanie Jacobson

ALWAYS WILL was a fun, fast read for me. It’s not my favorite by Melanie Jacobson, but it’s in the top 3 (#1 Painting Kisses, #2 The List). I love fun and quirky characters. Hannah, Will, and Hannah’s best friend, Sophie, were great. So were a few of the guys Hannah met online. I found myself laughing out loud (literally) at some of their teasing interchanges. Funny and clever dialog all over the place! For example, this conversation between Hannah and Will: Will: “What is […]

{Review} Played for a Fool by Stephanie Black

{Review} Played for a Fool by Stephanie Black

First off, up front, I own almost all of Stephanie Black’s books, in paperback, most of them I’ve bought with my own money. This one she sent me in exchange for a review. Since I’ve fan-girled over her for years, she probably thought that was a pretty good investment on her part. And she was right. When I read Stephanie’s first book, The Believer, I didn’t know her at all. The book had an interesting premise, it was on sale, and I picked it up […]

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 […]

Review: Ilana’s Wish by Annette Lyon

Review: Ilana’s Wish by Annette Lyon

Ilana’s Wish is the 8th book in the Newport Ladies Book Club series—and I’ve enjoyed every single one of them! However, this one—this one spoke to me on so many levels. Ilana Goldstein is a regular woman—just like so many of us—who got slammed by the unfairness of life. Her one dream in life is for a family, for children, but she has issue after issue after issue that prevents that from happening. This poor woman barely has a chance to breathe between the events that […]

Review: As You Are by Sarah M. Eden

Review: As You Are by Sarah M. Eden

Set in 1815, this romance focuses on Corbin Jonquil and Clara Bentford. Clara has overcome her fear and gotten out of an abusive situation. Corbin’s attempts to attract her attention (based on horrible advice from his brothers) is hilarious. The usual classic misunderstandings and miscommunications keep them apart—providing a good amount of romantic tension. But what sets this romance apart is the clever dialog and depth of character. There is some violence with the physical and emotional abuse of this story, mostly implied and part […]
