I love the start of fall even if most of this month has been so hot. The good news is we got our new air conditioner and heating installed. Second piece of good news is they started work on our ditch in the back yard that the entire […]

I’ve read several of this author’s contemporary books, but had yet to try her older fantasy series.  When it released in audio, I was eager to take this chance to satisfy my curiosity about Kristen Ashley’s flexibility between genres.  I was not long into this one before I realized that the writing style, the feel of the characters, and even the dialogue was very familiar even if the setting and plot were true-blue fantasy.  Dragons, elves, witches, hot alpha warrior […]

Ooops! I did it again. I picked up an interesting book on NetGalley without checking if it was part of a series. The good news, I didn’t get lost as I navigated my way through it. So if there were returning characters, I don’t even have a clue who they would have been. Mandy Baxter writes a story about a man who wants to do right after growing up with a con artist. Mason Decker has one dream: to be a […]

New Blogging Planner Stickers! #YakketyYak

New Blogging Planner Stickers! #YakketyYak

So last week I admitted my planning addiction. I have been good. I haven’t ordered much this week. I did get a new planner, which I am debating. The one I wanted was $55. Ouch! The one I got was $15, but has spots for every family member and the blog. For budgeting purposes, I just can’t validate the reason for $55 planners. The picture on the left is of the new blogging stickers I purchased from Planner Nerd Studio […]

I had a rousing good time with the first book in this series and was eager for a new adventure with this pair of intrepid besties as they begin their private eye business.  This isn’t their first rodeo, but mayhem seems to be their stock in trade and it was fun being along as they work their cases, deal with protective menfolk and take a trip back into Harley’s past. Though this is book two in the Linda & Lynda […]

Manipulated by Cari Quinn and Taryn Elliott My name is Owen Blackwell, and I’m currently in recovery. Not from what you think, though I do enjoy a bit of whiskey. No, my issue is that I fell foolishly in love with my best friend. Oh, and she’s getting married. So, in my eternal stupidity, I hooked up with a woman at our annual masquerade ball. You know what they say—the best way to get over a woman is to get under […]

Each month, I will post up a pair (or more) of books.  I would like you to vote on a choice.  Yes!  You will have the job of telling me what to read from my pile each month.  I welcome your vote no matter what reason you choose (frivolous, serious or otherwise) that particular book and do share your reason in the comments just because I’m nosy.  I will update everyone at the end of the month in my reading […]
