Blackthorne's Bride
by Joan Johnston
"Finally Josie's much awaited story."
Posted July 19, 2017

When seemingly small details spark a memory you can't help but sit back and try to gather your thoughts, kind of produce an image of something that sounds almost familiar. And of course there's a good reason for that in BLACKTHORNE'S BRIDE by Joan Johnston. BLACKTHORNE'S Read more...


The Strawberry Hearts Diner
by Carolyn Brown
"Sweet and satifying romance from the Queen of Texas Romance"
Posted July 19, 2017

Imagine a feel good story about two young woman returning to a small town named Pick. The return of each will have quite an impact on the folks of this small tight community. In addition to this noteworthy event there is the entrance of someone with a sinister plan for Read more...


Wild Horse Springs
by Jodi Thomas
"A truly wonderful read"
Posted July 17, 2017

For some writers love is a little like a country western song, after all the lyrics tell stories, some bittersweet. So when Jodi Thomas describes Sheriff Dan Brigman it seems appropriate to parallel the Toby Keith song "A little less talk and a lot more action." At least that's Read more...


Talk Cowboy to Me
by Carolyn Brown
"The boys against the girls - an even stage for a contest."
Posted July 17, 2017

It's all about what's really important, family, friends, people not things, not possessions. Adele learned that the hard way. Her ex was all about appearances, show, she always had doubts, troubling thoughts about why he had married her. She felt that she didn't fit the bill. Too Read more...


Romeo & Juliet Paper Dolls
by Eileen Rudisill Miller
"Beautiful paper dolls book, great for teaching too!"
Posted July 17, 2017

Every once in a while I'm approached with a request to review something that doesn't quite fit any of my usual genres. I do reviews on many arts and crafts and hobby topics but this recent request made me really put on my thinking cap. Dover Publications added Read more...


Ride A Painted Pony
by Kathleen Eagle
"Getting back on the horse was never so important."
Posted July 17, 2017

Sometimes life is just too unfair -- almost unconscionable and simply terribly sad. What can you do when conditions are unstable and the odds are stacked against you? When there are no good choices -- actually when there are no viable choices at all. Your fate and that of your child is Read more...


The Barefoot Summer
by Carolyn Brown
"Fabulous romp to savor and enjoy this summer!"
Posted July 15, 2017

Gutsy, sassy and if they were men you could say they walked with a swagger -- an inborn sense of self, confident and smart. No one's fool but ah ha that's the rub. Three women all set up by the same con man -- all of them thought they were Read more...


If Not for You
by Debbie Macomber
"Lovely story about finding your own path."
Posted July 15, 2017

Everyone would like to believe they are in control of their destiny. Not day by day but in the grand scheme of things. Life just has a way of getting in the way of plans and that's not necessarily always with a bad outcome. Some might call these just Read more...


Undaunted
by Diana Palmer
"What would you do for love."
Posted July 15, 2017

True to type Diana Palmer penned still another tale where the big brooding guy is brought to his knees by an unassuming innocent younger woman and for the most part can't believe it is happening to him. A recurring theme as any fan of Diana Palmer will tell you Read more...


Cozy Stash-Busting Knits
by Jen Lucas
"Perfect book for all those extra skeins of yarn."
Posted July 15, 2017

I learned several things in Jen Lucas' book COZY STASHING- BUSTING KNITS, some were probably not intentional but rather eye opening for an old time knitter. I developed a new respect for charting, something I often passed over when looking at instructions for a new project. When tackling a gorgeous Read more...


Temptations in a Teapot
by Laura Givens
"Some truly fine illustrations in this new adult coloring book."
Posted June 14, 2017

TEMPTATIONS IN A TEAPOT by Laura Givens is a lovely addition to the adult coloring book category, albeit a little on the more expensive side although I feel certain it will be available discounted prices on some online websites. Since I am reviewing this book from a digital version I Read more...


Down Home Cowboy
by Maisey Yates
"Tough cowboy takes on teenage daughter"
Posted June 8, 2017

In DOWN HOME COWBOY Maisey Yates takes on the challenge of dealing with a sullen teenage girl (is there any other kind) while trying to reestablish yourself in a new town, new home and possibly find a way out of the lonely closed in existence of a man whose wife Read more...


A Stardance Summer
by Emily March
"Simply Wondrous"
Posted June 1, 2017

A STARDANCE SUMMER is the fourteenth installment in the Eternity Springs series, which just proves that Emily March is quite a prolific author with a genius for creating a multitude of characters with very diverse personalities Read more...


Reed
by R.C. Ryan
"Series comes to a powerful conclusion."
Posted May 31, 2017

Matt, Luke and now REED have each had their own story in the Malloys of Montana series by R.C. Ryan. With each installment in this fantastic series R.C. Ryan has raised the stakes. Matt was her introduction to Read more...


The Lawman's Convenient Bride
by Christine Rimmer
"Everyone deserves to find love."
Posted May 30, 2017

Life is strange, certain events seem to set paths for people and if they don't take the necessary steps those paths will be set in granite. Kind of like fighting an uphill battle. But for some they seem settled in the path set for them and that's somewhat Read more...


In the Heir
by Ruth Cardello
"Families like flowers need to be carefully tended."
Posted May 23, 2017

Sometimes I just like to try something or someone new. I understand that doesn't mean the author is new -- it's usually that I just never found them in my book searches. Having just finished IN THE HEIR by Ruth Cardello I know that I've been missing out Read more...


Happy Is the Bride
by Janet Dailey, Lori Wilde, Kate Pearce, Cat Johnson
"Behind the scenes of a beautiful wedding."
Posted May 3, 2017

HAPPY IS THE BRIDE has an interesting concept, take a wedding and capture four different unique stories happening concurrently within the scope of the entire event. Kind of like having different cameras zeroing in on different people and activities and producing a video collage of the wedding. That's basically Read more...


Any Day Now
by Robyn Carr
"It takes more than tenacity to move forward"
Posted May 2, 2017

If you loved What We Find and have missed Sully, Maggie and Cal than wait no more. Robyn Carr heard you loud and clear and her answer is ANY DAY NOW. It's wonderful to revisit Sullivan's Crossing and have a reunion of sorts with old friends Read more...


A Small-Town Bride
by Hope Ramsay
"Utterly charming new installment in the Chapel of Love series"
Posted March 29, 2017

In A SMALL TOWN BRIDE, Hope Ramsay deftly pits Amy against her entire Lyndon family, in the most hysterical and yet heartwarming way of course. Otherwise it wouldn't be a Hope Ramsay tale. Watching Amy figuratively duck and poach to avoid having to volley any position with her family Read more...


Home at Last
by Lily Everett
"Be prepared to be swept off your feet."
Posted March 15, 2017

Be prepared to be swept off your feet by the most unlikely person -- Marcus. So tough and yet probably the most endearing character you will ever meet all thanks to Lily Everett in the next book of the Sanctuary Island series -- HOME AT LAST. Hard to say but HOME AT Read more...

An avid reader for all my life and reading is one of my passions. I’ve been an independent reviewer for several years now and have covered just about every genre from a vast number of publishers and authors. Another perk of reviewing is getting a first glimpse of new and upcoming works from talented authors. As a reviewer I have had the fortune to meet new authors and become reacquainted with some tried and true ones. One of the most rewarding aspects of reviewing is having your work acknowledged by authors and/or publishers. The inclusion of one of my reviews on a book jacket or on an author’s website is a supreme compliment and always appreciated. With the advent and broad adoption of the e-reader the scope of available works to be reviewed has increased exponentially making the job of the reviewer ever more challenging as the selection of works becomes vast beyond belief. My goal is simple – to deliver a fair and honest review. I take this very seriously as I respect my readers and they can depend on my appraisal of fiction as well as various crafts and cooking. My main focus is fiction but occasionally something from another genre catches my eye. Reviews
