Review of “More Than You Know” by Jennifer Gracen

I just can’t seem to get into a single book this week.  More Than You Know is  second book I’ve tried to read since finishing re-reading a book I read almost a year ago.  The other book, Less Than a Lady by Eva Devon, held my interest for about six chapters and then left me so …

Review of “Wishes for Christmas” by Fern Michaels

I had really high hopes for Wishes for Christmas as I used to love The Sisterhood series of novels back when they first came out.  I remember reading the first book in the series on one of my summer vacations, sitting on the twin bed my dad got for me for the summer (I still lived …

Review of “Line of Fire” by HelenKay Dimon

I’ve heard a lot of really great things about HelenKay Dimon’s books, so when I saw this book on Netgalley, I jumped at the chance to review it.  I really wish that I looked before I leaped. Molly Cain has been attracted to Jason McAdams since she was a kid, but the timing has never …

Review of “Against the Tide” by Elizabeth Camden

And the streak continues.  Now that I’ve reached 3 bad books in a row maybe I’ll get one I like–you know since bad things supposedly come in threes.Against the Tide had so much potential.  The heroine, Lydia, is a young woman in 1891, who actually works for a living and isn’t a servant or a …

Review of “Wicked Intentions” by Elizabeth Hoyt

Yesterday, after finishing Follow My Lead, I waited a few hours to jump into a new book–not because of how good it was, but because of how bad it was.  I must confess to sometimes being a bit superstitious when it comes to reading and I’m always a bit wary of starting a book after a …

Review of “The Secrets of Sir Richard Kenworthy” by Julia Quinn

I love Julia Quinn.  Her books are funny (especially anything with the Pleinsworth sisters) and the central romances tend to be sigh-worthy. This book was not.  It was actually so bad that it has taken me a whole week to be able to write this review.  (I will admit that part of my disappointment in …

Review of “The Importance of Being Alice” by Katie MacAlister

Have you ever started reading a book and knew immediately that you weren’t going to like it?  That was my experience with The Importance of Being Alice.  The premise of the book was that Alice, upon being dumped by her douchebag sort of fiance, decides to go on the vacation the two had planned and winds …

Movie Review: Mr. Miracle

I don’t usually review movies on here as the focus of this blog is books, but I need to review this movie (it is a book, too).  This is the third in the Mrs. Miracle series and the first two movies are pretty good (actually I prefer the movie version of Mrs. Miracle to the …
