Review of “Reckless” by Kimberly Kincaid

Reckless is the first book Ms. Kincaid’s new series (Rescue Squad) and I believe it is a spinoff of her Pine Mountain series as it features characters introduced in the last book.  I’m really glad that I took a chance on this author because I’m quickly becoming addicted to her books (thankfully, Netgalley helps me with …

Review of “Supernatural Serial Killers” by Samantha Lyon and Dr. Daphne Tan

I’ve mentioned several times that I have degrees in Criminal Justice and Psychology, but I don’t think I’ve ever specifically written about my love of true crime.  I live on Investigation Discovery and have read more than my fair share of true crime novels.  When I saw Supernatural Serial Killers on Netgalley, I literally let out …

Review of “I’ll Be There” by Samantha Chase

I did it again.  I read another Samantha Chase and hoped for a different outcome.  I know.  I know.  A lot of people say doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result is the definition of insanity (just fyi, insanity is a legal term, which is determined based off of …

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 “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 …

Romance and Recipes–Review of “Too Blessed to Be Stressed Cookbook” byDebora M. Coty

I am not usually one to use cookbooks.  When I cook, it is usually something that I learned from my mom, who learned from my grandfather or adapted from one of the other relatives, like her lasagna which she based on my Aunt Millie’s lasagna.  Recently, I decided to expand my cooking horizons and since …

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 “A Wicked Way to Win an Earl” by Anna Bradley

I don’t usually read authors I’ve never heard of before because I don’t like spending my money on an unknown quantity.  Netgalley had made it much easier for me to try someone new because I’m able to get free copies of the books from the publishers.  Obviously, they aren’t always formatted in a way that …

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 …
