Review of “The Liar” by Nora Roberts

I’ve been a fan of Nora Roberts books for over ten years and I have to say I have never been more disappointed in one of her books than I was with The Liar.  It wasn’t that it was a terrible book, but it just wasn’t up to par with her others.  Books like, Three Fates, which …

Review of “Kill the Competition” by Stephanie Bond

Back when I first joined Kindle Unlimited over the summer, I decided to try Stephanie Bond’s Kill the Competition, which based on the hundreds of reviews on amazon, I thought would be a really quick, light read and while it is that, it is not in any way a romance novel.  A quickie in a sauna …

Review of “Once in a Lifetime” by Jill Shalvis

I wrote this back in July when I first read the book, but somehow, I never posted it on here.  I’ve made a few changes here and there, but otherwise it is exactly as I originally wrote it. The other day, I started reading Jill Shalvis’s most recent book (Once in a Lifetime) and I …

Review of Home for the Holidays by Debbie Macomber

Home for the Holidays by Debbie Macomber is one of my favorite Christmas books and I can’t count how many times I’ve read it over the years.  I first bought it in paperback from Target, but this year I downloaded the Kindle version to read.  This is not a full length novel, but a book …

Review of “Love in the Afternoon” by Lisa Kleypas

Before starting this review, I have to admit that I could not finish this book, not because it was a bad book, but because it was a good book that kept going when it should have ended.  I really enjoyed Kleypas’s voice, the characters, and the fact that it was set during the Victorian Era …

Review of “The Heart of a Killer” by Jaci Burton

There are so many things wrong with this book I don’t really know where to begin, but I guess I’ll have to start with the prologue. At the very beginning of the book we meet Anna Pallino, a 16 year old girl, who works at an ice cream shop in either 1999 or 2000. Anyway, …

Review of “Love Irresistibly” by Julie James

I wrote this review on Goodreads a few months ago and now that I have deleted my GR page because of the new TOS, I am bringing my reviews here. A few weeks ago, I was walking around Barnes and Noble, feeling really good about a job interview I had just been on (unfortunately that …

Review of “Lovestruck: The Musical”

I admit it, I am a sucker for cheesy made for t.v. movies, especially when they involve actors, who don’t usually sing, singing.  For this, Lovestruck: The Musical seemed to fit the bill.  It had everything that I love in my cheesy movies: Disney-esque magic potions, a couple of romances, tons of singing and dancing, and …

Review of “Ransom” by Julie Garwood

Ransom was a very middle of the road book for me.  There were portions that I really liked and then there were other parts that I just couldn’t get through, especially that wedding scene, which was just awful–I don’t know how Gillian could ever forgive Brodick for that. For the most part, this book takes …
