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 “Status Update” by Annabeth Albert

This was my second foray into LGBT romance–the first was The Belle vs. the BDOC from 90’s Playlist Anthology.  I did not enjoy that novella.  I was a little afraid to pick up another LGBT themed book, but the description on Netgalley had me excited about this book, so much so that I was chomping at the …

Review of “His Work of Art” by Shannyn Schroeder

What first struck me about His Work of Art is that the main characters are not your standard romance archetypes.  They’re young (probably about 21 or 22), definitely not rich, and at least where he’s concerned–not white.  Even better, they’re self-proclaimed nerds.  There are not enough nerds in literature.  For the number of us there are …

Review of “What Happens Under the Mistletoe” by Various

What Happens Under the Mistletoe is the new Christmas anthology featuring novellas by Sabrina Jeffries, Karen Hawkins, Candace Camp, and Meredith Duran.  I’ve heard of all of these authors, but I’ve only read Candace Camp.  Each book involves the magic of Christmas and mistletoe.  As with all anthologies, some of the novellas are stronger (Sweetest …

Review of “Rendezvous at Point Reyes” by Elisabeth Barrett

What first caught my attention about Rendezvous at Point Reyes by Elisabeth Barrett was its awful cover.  All I could see was that there was some random couple riding on a cloud.  The thumbnail looked extremely busy and I had to see what it looked like in its full form.  It was still very busy, but …

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 “Cinderella’s Shoes” by Shonna Slayton

As soon as I hit publish on the post about Cinderella’s Dress, I jumped right on into Cinderella’s Shoes (provided to me from Netgalley), the second (and final?) book in the series.  Before I go any further, I want to say that if you have not read the first, stop right now.  Don’t go any further. There …

Review of “Cinderella’s Dress” by Shonna Slayton

Last week, I was browsing the catalogue on Netgalley and came across a book called Cinderella’s Shoes and was intrigued.  I liked the idea that Cinderella was a real person and that her dresses and shoes were also real.  I also liked the fact that the book was set in the 1940’s.  This is something I’ve …

Review of “Falling for Her” by Sandra Owens

I started reading Falling for Her at about 8 PDT last night and finished it just under a half hour ago.  Ms. Owens seems to infuse her books with a psychotropic drug as the same thing happened when I read Someone Like Her last year.  (As soon as I saw Falling for Her available on Netgalley, I knew …
