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 by Jen Gilroy – #TLCBookTours Review and Giveaway

   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. Over twenty years ago, Charlotte and Sean met in just this way when Charlie’s family would […]

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 […]

Wyoming Brave by Diana Palmer – Blog Tour Review and Giveaway

  Wyoming Brave  isn’t my first Diana Palmer book, but this is book six in the Wyoming Men series, and you just jump right into the middle of the story in chapter one. While this wasn’t quite a stand alone–there were several characters from the Long Tall Texas series of the author’s that make appearances throughout […]

Miracle On 5th Avenue by Sarah Morgan – Blog Tour Review and Giveaway

  Miracle on 5th Avenue  is the second book that I’ve read by Sarah Morgan, and I think I fell head over snow boots in love with her writing and characters with this third installment of the From Manhattan With Love series. In this stand alone romance, two opposites who’ve both suffered loss are drawn […]

Love Literary Style by Karin Gillespie – Blog Tour Review and Giveaway

  Love Literary Style is a romantic comedy that doesn’t take itself too seriously, but it isn’t all fun and games either. As of yet unpublished literary novelist/adjunct professor Aaron Mite is convinced that his type of writing is the superior genre. His famous literary critic father Horace Flowers has burned that superiority into his […]

In the Blue Hour by Elizabeth Hall – Blog Tour Review and Giveaway

  In the Blue Hour is a hauntingly beautiful book rife with Native American folklore and traditions. Fifty-something-year-old Elise has lost her long-time husband Michael to a tragic car accident–one she’d dreamed of a few weeks prior to it happening–and seven months later she’s still floundering. They’d known each other since they were kids in northern New Mexico […]
