When We Found Home by Susan Mallery – #TLCBookTours Review and Giveaway

  I’m always blown away by how quickly I get immersed in the worlds that Susan Mallery creates. Within just a few pages, I felt right at home with the characters and Pacific Northwest setting, and it was no different with her latest stand alone novel, When We Found Home. Focusing on three half-siblings who […]

A Handbook for Beautiful People by Jennifer Spruit – #TLCBookTours Review

  I don’t think that I’ve read anything as raw, gritty, or gut-wrenchingly helpless and emotional as A Handbook for Beautiful People. Featuring Marla, a twenty-two year-old woman who has partial fetal alcohol syndrome thanks to an alcoholic/drug abusing mother who practically abandoned her and her deaf brother to foster care when they were young, […]

Matchmaking For Beginners by Maddie Dawson – #TLCBookTours Review

  I really loved Maddie Dawson’s previous book, The Survivor’s Guide To Family Happiness, so I just knew that I had to dig into her next novel. Matchmaking For Beginners is full of warmth amongst the dark times, finding joy in the bad, and finding strength in times of helplessness. Twenty-nine year old Marnie thinks her […]

I Am Justice by Diana Munoz Stewart – #TLCBookTours Review

  I really love thrillers that I can fall right into–the atmosphere, the characters, and the storyline. I Am Justice by Diana Munoz Stewart fit all that and more. This romantic thriller follows Justice Parish, a trained assassin who fights human trafficking of all kinds along with her adopted sisters and one brother. When they finally […]

Good Neighbors by Joanne Serling – #TLCBookTours Review

  In Joanne Serling’s debut novel, Good Neighbors, four suburban families strive to put up a perfect front for each other, all while hiding secrets that could shatter this perfect image. Told from the point of view of Nicole, a stay-at-home mother to two grade-school-aged boys and wife to a perfectionist husband, the seemingly tight […]

Hurricane Season by Lauren K. Denton – #TLCBookTours Review

  I really loved Lauren K. Denton’s first novel, The Hideaway, when I read it last year(my review here).  Her debut was full of family ties and complexities, and a heaping of self-discovery, all a charming Southern setting. I went into her second novel, Hurricane Season, with high expectations and I was not let down. Following sisters […]

The Heart Between Us by Lindsay Harrel – #TLCBookTours Review

The promise of world travel and an emotional journey for the characters what drew me to The Heart Between Us, and I really enjoyed this story of estranged twin sisters traveling together. While this is a Christian fiction book, the heavier questions about trusting God and believing that he had plans for the characters didn’t really show up […]

Sisters Like Us by Susan Mallery – #TLCBookTours Review

  Susan Mallery is one of those writers who has the gift of bringing fictional people to life, and I’m always left invested in their stories. Family-focused and romantic with real-world problems, I thoroughly enjoy reading another installment of the Mischief Bay series and getting to know a new set of main characters. SISTERS LIKE […]

The Chalk Man by C. J. Tudor – #TLCBookTours Review and Giveaway

I love thrillers, and The Chalk Man by debut author C.J. Tudor hit all the right notes for me. I thoroughly enjoyed following Eddie, his friends, and their parents back and forth from 1986 to 2016. This thriller has comedic hits, dark humor, characters who are mostly shades of gray, and a protagonist that is far from […]

Little Broken Things by Nicole Baart – #TLCBookTours Review and Giveaway

  Little Broken Things is a suspenseful, entrancing family drama that had me engaged from the very first word until the last page. Told from the perspectives of the three Stanford women: 60-something and recently widowed mother Liz, older sister Nora, and 26-year-old Quinn tell the story of their lives changing from the entrance of […]

Sugarplum Way by Debbie Mason – #TLCBookTours Review and Giveaway

    Now that the Christmas season is upon us, why not sit back and relax with some a few great books to get you in the holiday spirit? Debbie Mason’s Sugarplum Way definitely had me mentally gearing up for the upcoming holidays, and even looking forward to some snow whenever it chooses to hit […]

The Doll Funeral by Kate Hamer – #TLCBookTours Review and Giveaway

  I really enjoyed Kate Hamer’s The Girl in the Red Coat as the mystery/thriller pulled at my heartstrings while it dealt with a mother whose son had been kidnapped. The author has changed gears a little with her next novel, The Doll Funeral, and has headed into the territory of blending multiple genres successfully. While […]

Another Man’s Ground by Claire Booth – #TLCBookTours Review and Giveaway

    I really enjoyed Claire Booth’s debut novel The Branson Beauty, and I’ve been looking out for the follow up ever since. Having solved the murder of the popular, pretty young woman in the previous book, Hank thinks that he should be able to keep being sheriff and live a quiet existence in Branson […]
