Review of “Bay of Sighs” by Nora Roberts

A couple of months ago, I volunteered to read Stars of Fortune, the first book in Nora Roberts’s Guardian Trilogy for the Smart Bitches RITA Reader Challenge because ParaNoras are my crack.  If they were illegal, I’d be serving a life sentence for possession/intent to sell a controlled substance.  Unfortunately, I wasn’t a fan of …

Review of “Breath of Malice” by Karen Fenech

This was one of those books that I was really looking forward to reading from the moment I requested it on Netgalley and was super bummed that I had to wait because I received it more than a month before its publication date (June 14th).  Finally, I felt comfortable reading and preparing to review it …

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 “Operation Stop Hate” by Jessie Chandler

I am seriously torn about this book.  I like Ms. Chandler’s writing style and being in her main character’s head, but I have some big issues with some of the plot points that made it impossible for me to finish reading it.  I was excited to read it, although also worried that this was not …

Review of “Champagne Kisses” by Lynda Aicher

I wanted to like this book.  I really did.  Unfortunately, I didn’t.  The writing was fine, the characters were likable, but I didn’t like what I was reading.  Part of this is due to the fact that it is a measly 86 pages, which I did not know when I requested it from Netgalley.  Word/page …

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 “Jingle Bell Harbor” by Tracy Brogan

Another day, another awful Christmas novella.  What the hell?  Is there something in the water this year?  Why are there seriously no good Christmas books coming out? Jingle Bell Harbor is a Bell Harbor novella and the first (and only) Tracy Brogan book I have ever read.  It focuses on Kelsey Parker and Drew Hampton. …
