An Easy Death by Charlaine Harris

An Easy Death by Charlaine Harris

book review I will be the first to admit that this genre is not one I would normally read. I don’t care for westerns, fantasy novels, or books about alternate histories. However, I decided to read this one anyway because I have been a longtime fan of Charlaine Harris and wanted to see if she could persuade me to enjoy a genre I would normally avoid. Well, kudos Charlaine. I liked this book far more than I thought I would. It’s expertly told, imaginative, magical, and extremely intriguing. Gunnie Rose is a really cool character and her story is one I won’t soon forget. I got caught up in the gun-slinging, the wizardry, and being in a different or alternate time for the US. I […]

Sorry Not Sorry by Sophie Ranald

Sorry Not Sorry by Sophie Ranald

Read my book review Sorry Not Sorry is a cute and endearing read that any woman can relate to! I devoured this book in one sitting and felt very connected to Charlotte (which is a must have for me). I hope the author continues writing books like this in the future because I will be one of the first people to buy it! I loved this to pieces. In this novel, readers will meet Charlotte. Charlotte has come to a crossroads of sorts in her life as things are beginning to change- just not her. Her best friend and roommate just left and bought a house together and she is still as single as one can be. But when she stumbles upon a podcast that […]

Motorhomes, Maps, & Murder by Tonya Kappes

Motorhomes, Maps, & Murder by Tonya Kappes

READ MY BOOK REVIEW Motorhomes, Maps, & Murder is the 5th addition to the Camper & Criminals cozy mystery series. I recommend reading all these books in order. If you are a kindle unlimited subscriber you can read this series for FREE (and I highly recommend it). That being said, this is another fantastic novel in the series. I read it in one sitting as it isn’t a long novel but it sure packs a punch. In this installment, Mae and her team of friends are laying low because a serial killer is on the loose! Hopefully because she is dating the sheriff she won’t get tossed in the cross hairs of the killer… Friends, this is one of my top 3 favorite cozy mystery […]

Bridesmaids by Jane Costello

Bridesmaids by Jane Costello

I know this is an older title but I feel like it would be a disservice not to tell people how freakin awesome this book is! I found myself laughing out loud almost the whole way through. I loved the girls in the novel, how the story revolved around weddings, being a bridesmaid (and never the bride), and friendship. There is a bit of drama towards the end (which was very unexpected), but this book is an all around good read despite this. The only problem with this novel is that it’s not available as an eBook. I think this really sucks because many people ONLY read eBooks these days because they are super easy to just download when your in the mood for a […]

Coming Home to Holly Close Farm by Julie Houston

Coming Home to Holly Close Farm by Julie Houston

Coming Home to Holly Close Farm is a gorgeous story about a woman who, after finding out her boyfriend is married, goes home to her family. In doing this, the heroine now only learns to live on her own, but the secrets of her family that go back generations. Julie’s ability to weave Charlies story within the history of her family is magnificent. I felt the anticipation of learning more information and loved how Charlie was awakened through the history. All in all, it’s just a beautiful story and elegantly told. I love the how humor was sprinkled thought the story, and I love the feeling of family.  If you are looking for an original and classic read, I very much recommend this one.

I Owe You One by Sophie Kinsella

I Owe You One  by Sophie Kinsella

I Owe You One is another winner from bestselling author (and personal favorite of mine), Sophie Kinsella! I absolutely adored this book. I saw a little of myself within Fixie, connected with her character on a deep level, and loved the changes that happened in her life in the end. I was truly rooting for Fixie the whole way through and loved watching her progress from being a girl everyone walked all over to a woman who takes charge. If you are a fan of Sophie Kinsella and have been reading her books since the beginning (like I have) then you will notice that this is a classic Kinsella novel. The author has a certain sparkle within her novels and it certainly hasn’t been dimmed! […]

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 […]
