Southern Sass and Killer Cravings by Kate Young

Southern Sass and Killer Cravings by Kate Young

Southern Sass and Killer Cravings is the first book in a brand new cozy mystery series. This book fits in perfectly with other culinary cozies and even some paranormal as our MC is being “haunted” by her dead mother. I use quotes around haunted because there is nothing malevolent about it, just that her mother who has passed is speaking to her about the murder that has taken place.  For the most part, I thought this was a cute cozy. I did find it to drag in places and I found myself skipping around a bit, but it’s certainly worth the read for those who enjoy the genre. It could be a case of “it’s me, not you” that made it feel a little slow, […]

Passion on Park Avenue by Lauren Layne

Passion on Park Avenue is the first book in the Central Park Pact! Each of the books in the series CAN stand alone as they feature different characters however, I recommend reading this one FIRST as you get to know how these ladies became friends. Also, it’s such a cute story that I don’t think readers are going to want to miss it! That being said, I feel like this book falls better within the chick lit category than it does romance. The reason being is that the book is more centered around female growth than the romance. Sure, there is romance but it is light and not really the main focus. I think the focus of the story is more on Naomi than her […]

No-One Ever Has Sex On A Tuesday by Tracy Bloom

This is a really cute book. I have been reading a ton of romances that deal with heavy topics lately and I needed something to wind down with. This book worked! No-One Ever Has Sex on a Tuesday is a humorous chick lit novel (although I found the last 50% of the book to be much funnier than the first 50%). This is a novel about pregnancy, not taking life too seriously, and true love (even if it takes a few hiccups along the way to be perfected). It is the first book in the series and each book must be read in order as it follows the same couple through each book. I recommend it to anyone who is looking for a quick and […]

The Dinner in the Sky by Anne John Ligali

The Dinner in the Sky is an enjoyable read and I felt the characters were very realistic (which is a must for me in any book). Ann John Ligali brang them to life and I felt as if I were on the journey with them! This book wasn’t just a lighthearted read, which is another plus in my opinion, and dealt with real life issues that could affect anyone. I won’t say much else about the story as I think the book should be read instead but I will say that the friendships throughout the book and series is wonderful!  If you are looking for a sweet read with believable characters and realistic plots then I recommend giving The Dinner in the Sky a try.

Passport to Happiness by 	 Carrie Stone

Passport to Happiness is the perfect escape! I think this is the perfect book to have in your beach bag if you are planning a getaway of your own! One of my favorite things about the book is how the main character; Everyly, is on a journey of self discovery! She if finding herself through travel and recognizing that life is a beautiful thing. The of course is synonymous with her destinations and it blew me away. I am really looking forward to reading more of Carrie Stone’s books in the future based on this one. And isn’t the cover so adorable? It SCREAMS traveling! I love it to pieces. more purchase links AMAZON US | AMAZON UK | APPLE IBOOKS follow the tour enter […]

Edie Browne’s Cottage by the Sea by Jane Linfoot

Edie Browne’s Cottage by the Sea is a wonderfully uplifting novel! I didn’t realize going into the novel that the book was going to be as emotional as it is and found myself pleasantly surprised! This book is truly one of growth and finding oneself again. I loved Edie to pieces and seeing her struggle and come back from her issues was beautiful. The friendships made within the village where Edie is living were also amazing, and I loved the strong connections they all had.  If you enjoy realistic and heartwarming read this is the novel for you! I was pleasantly surprised with how everything turned out and am very much looking forward to more books by the author in the  future!  Other Purchase links […]
