Close Enough To Touch by Colleen Oakley – #TLCBookTours Review and Giveaway

  I have a lot of allergies. Perfumes, lotions, all sorts of fragrances can make my throat swell up and leave me itchy and rashy–even when I’m not the one wearing the fragrance. I’m also allergic to dust mites, all sorts of plants, and several medications, so it’s all sorts of fun trying to narrow […]

The Hideaway by Lauren K. Denton – #TLC Book Tours Review

  After reading such heavy, dark books that I’ve tackled lately, I needed a book that was as fun, emotionally healing, and loving as The Hideaway.  Lauren K. Denton’s debut is a knockout–full of family ties, self-discovery, a little bit of mystery and romance, and a bunch of digging into your family’s past to find out […]

Red Leaves by Paullina Simons – #TLCBookTours Review

  Red Leaves focuses on a group of four friends in their senior year at Dartmouth College, and their seemingly perfect relationships and friendships that have frayed to the breaking point until one of them ends up dead right before Thanksgiving in 1993. The first third of the book is told in Kristina Kim’s point […]

Mississippi Blood by Greg Iles – Review and Giveaway

    When I received the third and final installment in the Natchez Burning series, Mississippi Blood,  I held the hefty tome in my hands and almost dreaded carrying it around in my handbag to read it on my daily train commutes to and from work. Having lugged a hefty 800-plus pager around in the first book, […]

The Enemies of Versailles by Sally Christie – Review and Giveaway

I’ve really enjoyed Sally Christie’s historical retellings of France’s King Louis XV and the women who shaped his life. The first two installments, The Sisters of Versailles and The Rivals of Versailles, led us through the king’s middle-aged years where he was first with the Mailly Nesle sisters and then Marquise de Pompadour.  In The […]

The Mermaids of Lake Michigan by Suzanne Kamata – Review and Giveaway

The first thing that I noticed about Suzanne Kamata’s The Mermaids of Lake Michigan was the cover. It’s so hauntingly beautiful, and the woman’s underwater face with the sunlight softly streaming through the water fits in perfectly with the title of the book. When I dove into this book on my Kindle, I certainly didn’t […]

The Drifter by Christine Lennon – Review and Giveaway

    If you crack open the pages of The Drifter expecting a murder mystery, you’ll be a bit disappointed. It’s stated in black and white in the back cover blurb that former sorority girl Betsy and her two best friends experience a horrible act of violence while in their last year of college in Gainesville, […]

Wild Horse Springs by Jodi Thomas – Review and Giveaway

     I’ve definitely enjoyed western romances in the last several months, and Jodi Thomas’ Wild Horse Springs was no exception. While it was a bit light on the cowboy side since this book featured Sheriff Dan Brigman and his romance with country music singer Brandi Malone, the side stories had enough horses and guns […]

Blog Tour and Giveaway – Tough Justice Countdown Part 1 by Carla Cassidy

  I really loved the serial format of the Tough Justice series by authors Carla Cassidy, Tyler Anne Snell, Emmy Curtis and Janie Crouch that Harlequin published last year. Each installment blended from each one pretty seamlessly, even though each author wrote two installments in the eight part serial featuring FBI agent Lara Grant. And these […]
