Book Review: The Woman in th..

REVIEW: When I started The Woman in the Green Dress by Tea Cooper, I had no idea what path it would take and how it would end up. The story is told in two timelines: 1853 and 1919. Both of these timelines have an element of mystery with interesting characters. It wasn’t until I was […]

REVIEW: This one was such much fun!! I was excited to get the opportunity to read it because I love regency historical fiction and because this was an opportunity for me to read a new-to-me author’s work. Once I started it, I barely put it down.  The book opens up right in the action after […]

Book Review: Adult Conversation by Brandy Ferner

Book Review: Adult Conversat..

REVIEW: I read Adult Conversation by Brandy Ferner over Mother’s Day weekend and loved it. April is disorganized and harried. She feels like her days are filled with constant snacks, play dates, and bedtime stories. She thinks often about the days before-before she had her children, when she and her husband had plenty of time […]

Book Review: The Ingredients of You and Me by Nina Bocci

Book Review: The Ingredients..

REVIEW: This is exactly the type of book that I want more of. Such a fun, non-stressful read. Parker has lost her motivation. She sold her wildly successful bakery in NYC, but still can’t find her mojo. Her best friend Charlotte invites her to come visit in Hope Lake, Pennsylvania and spend some slower, more peaceful time […]
