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 “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 “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. …

Review of “Christmas at Evergreen Inn” by Donna Alward

Maybe I should stop requesting Christmas books through Netgalley.  I started reading Christmas at Evergreen Inn this morning and almost immediately knew it wasn’t for me.  I didn’t want to give up on it, though, hoping that it might get better.  Unfortunately, it didn’t. Todd is stranded over Christmas–a snow storm has hit the town and …

Review of “Home For Christmas” by Lily Everett

I love Christmas themed books.  Yes, they’re sometimes saccharine, but the holiday, itself, can be that, so why should we expect different from books?  I really liked the description on Netgalley, so I was happy when it was provided to me by the publisher.  Unfortunately, I only made it to the beginning of Chapter 2 …

Review of “I Spy a Duke” by Erica Monroe

I honestly don’t know where to start with this book.  There really isn’t anything wrong with it, but as of right now, I’ve been reading it for nearly a week and I just have no desire to continue doing so.  Based on the description on Netgalley, it has everything that I should love and I have …

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 …
