Throwback Review: The Dream Trilogy by Nora Roberts

There are some books that stick with you no matter how long it has been since you first read them.  For me, the Dream Trilogy has always been in the back of my head.  I probably read them a good 15 years ago and the last time was a good 10 years back.  As a …

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 …

Recently, I have been on a Bridgerton kick.  It started when I decided to re-read Romancing Mr. Bridgerton last week and continued with When He Was Wicked.  Having issues with To Sir Philip, With Love, I decided to skip that one and go straight to WHWW, hoping that I would enjoy yet another friends to lovers story.  Unfortunately, I …

Review of Home for the Holidays by Debbie Macomber

Home for the Holidays by Debbie Macomber is one of my favorite Christmas books and I can’t count how many times I’ve read it over the years.  I first bought it in paperback from Target, but this year I downloaded the Kindle version to read.  This is not a full length novel, but a book …
