Review of “Love and Other Scandals” by Caroline Linden

After I found out I had a bit of extra book spending money thanks to the Apple Settlement last week, I took a look at my wishlist (i.e. my “Want to Read” shelf on Goodreads) and immediately zeroed in on Love and Other Scandals by Caroline Linden.  I’d heard quite a bit about the Scandal Series …

Review of “Deep Dark” by Laura Griffin

Deep Dark is the newest Tracers series novel by Laura Griffin.  I first heard about it through the XOXO Afterdarkcast and was excited about a romantic thriller involving a white hat hacker fighting a black hat hacker/serial killer.  Pretty much every procedural has done something involving the Dark Web and I figured that the title …

Review of “Christmas in Lucky Harbor” by Jill Shalvis

I think I’ve mentioned my love of all things Jill Shalvis and Lucky Harbor, but just in case I haven’t–I LOVE JILL SHALVIS AND LUCKY HARBOR!!! Phew.  Now that that’s out of my system, let’s get down to business.  Christmas in Lucky Harbor is a compilation of the first two books in the series (Simply Irresistible and The …

Review of “The Lady Who Lived Again” By Thomasine Rappold

I’m not sure what I was expecting when I requested The Lady Who Lived Again, but I am sure that I did not get it, whatever it was.  Don’t get me wrong; it isn’t a bad book.  I’m just confused as to what it is.  At times, it feels like it wants to be a paranormal and …

Review of “Christmas Cottage/Ever After” by Samantha Chase

It is that time of year again–the days are getting shorter, the sun starts setting before Jeopardy is over, the new television season is starting, and Christmas books are coming out.  For me, and other people who use Netgalley, Christmas books start coming out much earlier than they do for other people.  I already reviewed …

Review of “Devoted in Death” by J.D. Robb

The In Death series has been one of my favorites for the past 11 years (boy does that make me feel old).  I can still remember the first time I read a full J.D. Robb novel–I was sitting in my backyard in New York, lounging on one of the chairs while my cousin was swimming …

Review of “Return to You” by Samantha Chase

I started writing this review (in my head) at about the 50% mark and it hasn’t really changed all that much.  Unfortunately.  I finished this book because I was hoping that it would end better than it did and because I did care about both of the main characters.  I wanted them to have a …

Review of The First Three Books in the Blue Raven Series by Kate Noble

I’ve been on a bit of a reading binge–so much so that I actually procured a 3rd library card–my Queens Library card still lets me borrow e-books, despite no longer living there.  I also have a Sunnyvale Library card that I applied for almost immediately after moving to California last year.  Now, I am the …

Review of “No Proper Lady” by Isabel Cooper

I want to start off by saying that this book is very far from what I normally read (I like my paranormals to be contemporary, thank you very much).  However, I gave it a try because I was looking for something different after going through the entire Pink Carnation Series in preparation for the release of …
