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 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Survivor’s Guide To Family Happiness by Maddie Dawson – Blog Tour Review and Giveaway

  The Survivor’s Guide To Family Happiness is a book about finding your family, whether you’re related genetically or not, and the sacrifices that you have to make to be with them. Thirty-five-year old Nina Popkin has just lost her adoptive mother–the only mother she’s ever known–and she’s left with an emptyness after caring for her sick […]

Natchez Burning by Greg Iles – Blog Tour Review and Giveaway

    Natchez Burning is quite a hefty tome–to the tune of 816 pages in the paperback–and I found myself wondering what I’d gotten myself into when I cracked open the spine. But I was drawn into the world of Penn Cage, mayor of Natchez, Mississippi, and his crusade to clear the name of his doctor father […]

Blog Tour Review and Giveaway – Beulah’s House of Prayer by Cynthia A. Graham

  I first encountered Cynthia A. Graham’s writing with her debut, Beneath Still Waters, and I fell in love with her writing and her characters. She has such a way of writing historical fiction that doesn’t stick out as taking place in the past, and the people are so unique and vivid that they still […]
