Review of “Magnate” by Joanna Shupe

The first thing that intrigued me about Joanna Shupe’s Knickerbocker Series (other than the fact that Knickerbocker is the full name of the New York basketball team) was that it took place in Gilded Age New York.  I remember reading about that time period in both my high school and college American History classes and …

Review of “Beta Test” by Annabeth Albert

I’ve been waiting to read this book since finishing Status Update several months ago.  I didn’t think I could like something as much as I did that one, but Beta Test blew that one out of the water.  I started it last night, not long after finishing the disappointment that was Deep Dark and finished it about an hour ago.  This …

Review of “Alone in the Dark” by Karen Rose

Karen Rose novels should come with trigger warnings.  I don’t remember reading any of them that didn’t involve something that would cause a PTSD episode and Alone in the Dark is no different.  To start my review, I am going to offer my own warning, just in case someone stumbles upon this not expecting to encounter harmful …

Classic Movie Review: “White Christmas”

Every year when I was a kid, my mom would put on White Christmas.  Most people talk about how great It’s a Wonderful Life is and how it is a Christmas institution, but for me it isn’t Christmas without a viewing of the Bing Crosby/Danny Kaye movie.  With music by Irving Berlin and a cheery plot, how …

Review of “All Wrapped Up” by Kimberly Kincaid

Immediately after finishing The Sugar Cookie Sweetheart Swap, I went looking for more books by Kimberly Kincaid as her novella was the one I liked the most.  After a quick search on Amazon, I found that she has five Pine Mountain novels out and that the most recent one, All Wrapped Up, involved Ava Mancuso, sister to Sugar …

Review of “Controlled Burn” by Shannon Stacey

OMG.  I LOVED this book.  LOVED it.  There aren’t enough capital letters in the world to discuss just how much I loved this book.  It was my very first Shannon Stacey book (I KNOW) and it did not disappoint, which is saying a lot since I’ve had it on my TBR pile since Netgalley granted …
