By Invitation Only by Dorothea Benton Frank | Review

By Invitation Only by Doroth..

Review: I just love Southern authors and Southern settings, and there is specifically something about the work of Dorothea Benton Frank that makes me very excited.

The Daughter’s Tale by..

Review: Sometimes it seems like there are a ton of World War II books out there, so I’m a bit selective when I choose which ones I want to read. The Daughter’s Tale by Armando Lucas Correa stood out to me because of the cover (so pretty!) and because it featured a family fractured by […]

REVIEW: I think I will always fall for a grumpy guy that meets his match in a happy, upbeat gal. I love love love it, and The Austen Playbook by Lucy Parker was a really good example of one of these stories. Griff is a theater critic; Freddy is a London stage actor. What is […]

California Girls by Susan Mallery | Review

California Girls by Susan Ma..

Review: California Girls by Susan Mallery does one of my absolute favorite things: tells the story of women at a crossroads, having to make huge life decisions. This is the story of three sisters that are dumped at basically the same time-like on the same day-and how they all three cope with the loss of […]

REVIEW: This is one of those psychological thriller mysteries where a group of friends are gather together on a trip, and someone is murdered. So which character is the one that got killed? And who did it? I’m incredibly drawn to these stories and I’m pretty sure I’ve enjoyed them every time I’ve read them. There […]
