Some books strike just the right chord out of the blue.  I saw a book with a blurb that drew in my curiosity and really had no expectations.  It wasn’t far into this story that my anticipation grew and continued to grow as things were all laid out.  A famous country singer discovers after her grandmother’s death that the son she gave away as a poor, scared sixteen year old when her grandmother and her boyfriend both rejected her has […]

A woman who is gutsy enough to go to perfect strangers and ask if she can interview their ranch hands for one to become her husband and help her save her ranch made for an amazing blurb and I was definitely eager to see how that turned out.  This ended up being a touching marriage of convenience style story that grew into a beautiful romance. As I was reading this book, I got the impression that it was connected to […]

For a week I kept trying to avoid this book. The title Meat kept haunting me about huge cocks. Well, I was right about that, but after I read the blurb, I really thought it was more about a chef. Which I was right about as well. So I dived in even knowing I haven’t really cared for this author’s books in the past. But I try to be fair that I just might not like that one. Rebecca Winston […]

This gentle yet sizzling small town romance series are like well worn comfort jeans or home-cooked goodness when I want something cozy and familiar.  They aren’t full of dynamic characters or explosive scenes, but just people trying to find a bit of joy and love along with some fun with their friends and family in Hope, Oklahoma.  This latest tackles two characters, Brady and Megan, who have been around for a while in the books.  Megan is bubbly and sweet […]

Never doubt the influence of a well-written review.  Two of my favorite book review blogs- Caffeinated Reader and Christy Loves Books reviewed this book and I immediately decided that I had to read it. A sci-fi thriller set in the future and taking place on a remote and hostile planet during a war between space empires.  From the moment, the anonymous main character opens his eyes to a desperate and confusing situation to the last word on the last page, […]

  My journey with audio book reviewing and figuring out one question: What do you look for in an audio book narrator?  Until recently it was rather a moot question for me.  I didn’t listen to audio books.  However, in the fall of 2014, this started to change. I listened to my first audio book that August, Outlander by Diana Gabaldon and narrated by the incomparable Davina Porter.  It took me nearly three months to listen to all 32 hours […]

A stranger comes to town… And isn’t that one of the best attention grabbers there is for the beginning of a story?  Once my attention was grabbed, I was treated to a delightful, heartwarming book that offered up a romance for Margarita Gal, Fia Thomas with former Army sniper West Texan cowboy, Elliot Ross.  Beyond the romance, is also the story of a woman who needs the answers about her deteriorating health and a man who is looking for home.  […]
