Giveaways , Review / September 13, 2017

Have you seen what our reviewers think about THE FINAL SCORE by Jaci Burton? If you’re a sports fan, check it out! Helen William says “THE FINAL SCORE is a wonderful story about living up to expectations. Nathan and Mia have always shared their thoughts with each other but when their relationship changes than the perceived outside pressure will get in the way. They will have to decide if they can have it all.” And Miranda Owen thinks “THE FINAL SCORE is a frankly fabulous romance with sizzle and substance. The enjoyable teasing between Nathan and Mia balance the sexual fireworks and intense character- driven story. This works as a great standalone story, but reading THE FINAL SCORE will make you want to go back and read about Nathan’s parents in THE PERFECT PLAY. I look forward to Jaci Burton’s next Play-by-Play novel.” THE FINAL SCORE by Jaci Burton Play-by-play #13 In the new Play-by-Play novel by the New York Times bestselling author of Rules of Contact, a star quarterback is torn between his love of the game—and the woman who may be the love of his life. Nathan Riley is ready to follow in the footsteps of his famous…

Review: NO CATS ALLOWED by Miranda James
Review / February 6, 2017

“A clever murder mystery with plenty of southern charm” Charlie Harris and his cat Diesel are about fed up with the new head of the library. Oscar Reilly acts like he’s on a mission to make enemies. That creates a long list of suspects when Oscar turns up dead. When Charlie moves into the office, to fill in temporarily, he finds something that could make him the killer’s next target. NO CATS ALLOWED is a fantastic small-town cozy mystery. Author Miranda James’s takes her time introducing all the characters and laying out the situation. Her precise writing makes it easy to visualize the quiet Athena College campus and Charlie’s old family home. When Oscar Reilly is murdered in the library, we already know why half a dozen people might want him dead. Coming from a long line of southerners myself, I especially appreciate the uniquely southern touches James weaves into the story, from the foods served for dinner to the way the native characters talk. Each book is a real taste of the region. I also appreciate that the tone and language is such I feel comfortable recommending NO CATS ALLOWED and James’s other Cat in the Stacks novels to…
