99 Percent Mine by Sally Thorne

99 Percent Mine by Sally Thorne

99 Percent Mine was one of my most anticipated books of January 2019. I think it’s mostly because so many people rave about Thorne’s books. Don’t get me wrong, her books are good and I enjoyed this one but it wasn’t a favorite of mine (hence a 3.5 star review). I guess I was hoping for a bit more depth in the characters. It would have been nice to have seen a little bit more of Darcy and Tom’s past (clearly, the two loved each other since childhood), a bit more twin-tuition (why add twins to the story line if they don’t FEEL like twins, and a lot more information into the heroines medical condition (that would have really added something to the story as […]

The Great Escape by Charlotte Fallowfield

The Great Escape by Charlotte Fallowfield

The Great Escape is another laugh out loud novel from Charlotte Fallowfield! While it is part of the Dilbury Village series it can be read as a complete standalone. If you have read the first book; Never the Bride you will recognize some of the same scenes as the books take place around the same time (i.e. turdgate LOL). Anyway, I really enjoyed this one. It’s super cute, funny, and features my favorite secondary character from Never the Bride.  Georgie’s love life had taken a turn for the worst when she found out her fiance was cheating on her with a local barmaid. So her and her BFF Abbie take a little trip to Mexico to drown their sorrows in booze and sunshine. Who cares if the […]

It’s Your Party, Die If You Want To by Vickie Fee

It’s Your Party, Die If You Want To by Vickie Fee

Short Review: I enjoyed this book. It’s got action, a cool sleuth, and great party planning ideas. However, some aspects of the book were a bit slow for me and I couldn’t have cared less to continue reading it or not. It’s just not one of those books that leave you eager for more. That said, I will continue the series because I enjoy both Liv and Di, but also because I own the other books and I don’t want them to go to waste.

A Cast-Off Coven by Juliet Blackwell

A Cast-Off Coven by Juliet Blackwell

Is it me, or is this cozy mystery series really dark? I feel the like paranormal aspects are a little scary if I am being honest! First our amateur sleuth, Lily was casting off La Llorna and now she is ridding demons? Yikes! In any event, I really am finding that I love this series! It’s been quite a while since I have found a paranormal book that holds my attention but this series is. In fact, I immediately picked up the third book in this series and plan to read it soon. Perhaps this year I’ll work my way through the series! Here’s to hoping.  Anyway, since this is an older series I will keep this review short and sweet. All the books in […]
