A Summer Scandal by Kat French

Kat French has done it again! She put a HUGE smile on my face with this story and invoked so many feelings of pleasure! After reading some pretty intense romances, I knew I needed to read a lighter read to lift my spirits up and this did just that. I loved the scandal, the tiny bit of drama used to keep things interesting (Gladys!) and the wonderful ending.  If you are a chick lit reader and love books that remind you of the beach, summer, and fun then this is the book for you! Ladies, if you need a cute book for your summer beach bag then grab this one! And if you just want to explore a new place then I recommend this one.

The Bed and Breakfast on the Beach by Kat French

The Bed and Breakfast on the Beach is a magical summer read! With characters who will make you laugh to a setting so beautiful you will want to visit yourself, this book a must have for everyone’s beach bags! I loved being able to escape to the Greek Islands with Winnie, Stella, and Frankie! They are like the best friends I have never had. So while I was sad to see them go, I am glad I got to “meet” them, if only for a little while! Filled with friendship, laughter, magical gin and tonics, and a little bit of romance, this book is going to be a must have for all chick lit fans! You will love the setting just as much as the […]

Summer at Buttercup Beach by Holly Martin

Summer at Buttercup Beach by Holly Martin

Summer at Buttercup Beach is the latest novel from one of my favorite chick lit authors, Holly Martin. Readers will be swept away by this friends to lovers romp and fall head over heels with Buttercup Beach. This is the type of place where we readers can imagine ourselves vacationing in, and possibly even wanting to live. If you have read Spring at Blueberry Bay (one of my favorites of the year) then you may remember Freya and Rome who were secondary characters. Those two are actually the couple that I wanted to see played out in their own book and this is for them! So to say I was excited to read this one would be an understatement. And alas, I wasn’t disappointed!  Summer […]

The Holiday Cottage by the Sea by Holly Martin

Holly Martin always manages to put a smile on my face through her books. Sure, some of them follow the same pattern and the only difference is characters, but the places she takes me to makes it so that these similarities don’t matter. Her stories are uplifting, light, funny, heartfelt, and utterly charming. Her characters are delightful, a breath of fresh air, and downright adorable. And the sparkle of romance? Well, it may be fast, but is completely satisfying. If you are in the mood for a lighthearted chick lit novel, Holly Martin is a good “go to” author. Just like the other books I have read by her, this is a winner.  So, what is The Holiday Cottage by the Sea about? Well, it’s […]

The Cottage on Sunshine Beach by Holly Martin

The Cottage on Sunshine Beach by Holly Martin

This book is everything I expect from a Holly Martin novel- cute, fun, romantic, and 100% sweet. I am never disappointed in her novels and don’t think I ever will be. If you have read her last release, you will notice that the characters from that book play a role in this one. This is an interconnected series of standalones.  PS: I don’t have a lot to say about this one because it follows the same pattern as her other books so this is a mini review.

My Big Greek Summer by Sue Roberts

My Big Greek Summer by Sue Roberts

My Big Greek Summer was a pleasant surprise for me! I thought this would be a breezy novel for some mindless reading but it was everything but! This book, while mainstreamed as a romantic comedy, deals with real life issues like broken marriages and overcoming life obstacles. There are tender moments, laugh out loud moments, and quite a few powerful messages in the book. I truly enjoyed it! If you are looking for a realistic chick lit novel with delightful characters who are easy to connect with then I certainly recommend this book for you. I love everything about it from the plot, the issues the characters are facing (and it’s not just the heroine who is facing life challenges), the scenery (I would love […]

Skinny Dipping with Murder by Auralee Wallace

This is the first book in the Otter Lake Mystery series. It’s a hilarious cozy mystery with the type of characters one could easily become best friends with and takes place in an richly described environment. I adored this book and laughed out loud more times than I can count! If you are a cozy mystery junkie and/or love the genre, this is a must have for you! As with any book I fall in love with, I went out and purchased the rest of the series because I enjoyed this one so much!  Highly recommended

Sunshine After the Rain by Daisy James

Sunshine After the Rain by Daisy James is a fun little book that I really enjoyed reading. There are books out there that are sure to lift your spirits, and readers, this is one of them! One of my favorite things when reading this one is that I was able to be transported into a lovely setting. The author does a wonderful job at essentially drawing us a picture of Corfu, and if I could go there myself I would. This is a magical quality for any book and the James really hit the nail on the head.  With that, this is the perfect summer read. It fast paced, lighthearted, and 100% charming. The characters are fun to get to know, and watching Evie grow […]

Curves, Kisses, and Chocolate Ice-Cream by Sue Watson

Curves, Kisses, and Chocolate Ice-Cream by Sue Watson

Curves, Kisses, and Chocolate Ice-Cream is a fun summer romp and perfect for any woman’s beach bag. That said, it is the second book in the Ice-Cream Cafe series but can be read as a complete standalone. For those who enjoy the chick lit and women’s fiction genre, this would be the perfect fit for you! It’s a relatable tale about a “curvier” woman who just wants to loose a few pounds. How many of us have been in this same predicament? I can assume that most if not all have felt this way before. And indeed, so does our heroine (Dani). Although, giving up the sweet treats and actually exercising isn’t her idea of fun. Now, at times I felt that Dani came off […]
