Thief’s Mark by Carla Neggers – Review and Giveaway

I love mysteries that are fast-paced with ever-mounting tension and high stakes. The book blurb for Carla Neggers’ latest installment in the Sharpe and Donovan series promised all of those things, but sadly fell flat for me as I tackled my first novel by this author. While there was a lot of backstory revealed for […]

Defending Hearts by Rebecca Crowley – #TLCBookTours Review and Giveaway

I’m so happy to kick off the TLC Book Tour for Rebecca Crowley’s second installment in the Atlanta Skyline series, Defending Hearts. While I’m not a big fan of soccer since I grew up in the Midwest where it was a sport that just wasn’t played, what drew me to this novel was the reversal […]

Dangerous Ends by Alex Segura – #TLCBookTours Review

  I haven’t read a hard-boiled, noir-ish detective novel in a while, and Alex Segura’s Dangerous Ends hit all the right notes when it comes to my must-have list in these types of books. Brave yet borderline stupidly fearless main character whose sense of justice and right and wrong drives him to investigate no matter how […]

   The Cottage at Firefly Lake is a great second-chance romance featuring a picturesque small town on a Vermont lake, full of summer vacationers and the townies who cater to those who fill the area for the busy season.

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

Law and Disorder by Heather Graham – Blog Tour Review and Giveaway

  Law and Disorder is the first installment in the new Finnegan Connection series by Heather Graham, featuring side characters from her New York Confidential series. I’m more familiar with her paranormal Krewe of Hunters series, which I’ve read several and really enjoyed, so I jumped in to Law and Disorder expecting a fast paced book […]
