Betrayal at Iga by Susan Spann – #TLCBookTours Review and Giveaway

  I love mysteries of all kinds, and Betrayal at Iga is the first mystery that I’ve read that was set in 1500s Japan. While the author does write with quite a bit of historical accuracy when it comes to naming conventions and terms for that era, Susan Spann’s writing doesn’t feel too dated in […]

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.

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 […]

  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 […]
