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 “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 “Snowflake Bay” by Donna Kauffman

Snowflake Bay is a Christmas book in the same way that Winter Wonderland is a Christmas song.  It isn’t one.  Instead, it is a wintertime book that made me want to crawl up in front of a nice warm fire (and then douse the fire in order to turn on the Air Conditioning because I am …

Review of “The Bollywood Bride” by Sonali Dev

I don’t have much experience with the Indian culture and what I do know wouldn’t fill up a thimble.  (Basically, my knowledge of anything Indian comes from walking around Liberty Avenue along the Brooklyn/Queen border, trying some food at work when my boss decided to go Indian that one time, and accompanying a friend, who …

Review of “The Rogue You Know” by Shana Galen

“This is the story of how I died.”  No, this post isn’t about Rose Tyler or The Battle of Canary Warf.  Sorry, Fellow Whovians, but this story has a happy ending.  There are no alternate universes and definitely no Bad Wolf–there is a cute, white dog, though.Now that that’s out of my system… I have …

Review of “One Good Earl Deserves a Lover” by Sarah MacLean

One Good Earl Deserves a Lover is not going to be one of my favorite books.  It isn’t going on my keeper shelf to be re-read over and over again (good thing, since it is a library book).  I’m not going to be tempted to name any pets Pippa or Cross/Jasper.  It wasn’t that kind …

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 …

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 “Someone Like Her” by Sandra Owens

I literally finished this book in a day.  I can’t tell you the last time that happened.  Someone Like Her is the second book in the K2 series, which I’d never heard of until browsing on Netgalley over the weekend.  At first, I wasn’t sure I was going to like it because I tend to …
