The Last Ballad by Wiley Cash Review

The Last Ballad by Wiley Cas..

REVIEW: When I first saw the advanced copies for The Last Ballad by Wiley Cash being circulated months ago, I got so excited. His books are among my very-favorites. His stories are always so layered and his characters sometimes seem so straightforward but they’re actually really complex. And I love the way they’re set in […]

Accidentally On Purpose by Jill Shalvis | Review

Accidentally On Purpose by J..

Review: I’ve been dying to read Accidentally On Purpose by Jill Shalvis since I started binge-reading the Heartbreaker Bay Series last week. I’ve read all of the books and novellas so far, in order, with the exception of this one because I’ve enjoyed Elle and Archer so much throughout the series. I have to say that while […]

The Trouble With Mistletoe by Jill Shalvis | Review

The Trouble With Mistletoe b..

Review: The Trouble with Mistletoe by Jill Shalvis is a quick read, very cute. I liked it more than the previous book, Sweet Little Lies, because there isn’t a huge “secret that can change destroy everything.” This book features Willa and Keane. While each of the books in this series are technically standalones, I love reading […]

Last Christmas in Paris by Hazel Gaynor and Heather Webb | Review

Last Christmas in Paris by H..

Review: I almost don’t know where to begin with this one because I loved it so much. Last Christmas in Paris by Hazel Gaynor and Heather Webb begins in 1968 with Thomas Harding traveling back to Paris for his last Christmas (no spoiler there, see title) with a bundle of letters, a nurse, and failing […]

Chasing Christmas Eve by Jill Shalvis | Review

Chasing Christmas Eve by Jil..

REVIEW: Oh my gosh! This was so good! I’ve spent my week binge-reading the Heartbreaker Bay Series and I’ve had the best time. I’ve read them all except for one book (Accidentally On Purpose, featuring Elle and Archer), and Chasing Christmas Eve is definitely my favorite so far. Spence is part of the original core group […]

Review | Sweet Little Lies by Jill Shalvis

Review | Sweet Little Lies b..

Review: I’m convinced that any book by Jill Shalvis is perfect when I need a break from the real world. Sweet Little Lies was not my favorite of hers, but it was good. Pru’s darn secret just kept me from loving it as much as I wanted to. In true Shalvis fashion, she’s given us […]

The Clan of the Cave Bear by Jean Auel Review

The Clan of the Cave Bear by..

Review: The Clan of the Cave Bear by Jean Auel is incredible. Ayla is about 5 years old when a massive earthquake leaves her motherless and alone. She is found by a group of Neanderthals and adopted into their Clan. As a child born to the Others (a Cro Magnon group living in another area), […]

Caroline: Little House, Revisited by Sarah Miller Review

Caroline: Little House, Revi..

REVIEW: I can’t count the number of times that I’ve read the Little House books by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Last year, I spent hours at Laura Ingalls Wilder’s home in Mansfield, Missouri and cried when I saw Pa’s famous fiddle. I couldn’t help it. The Little House stories are the ultimate in comfort reads for […]

Blindsighted by Karin Slaughter Review

Blindsighted by Karin Slaugh..

Review: I’ve finally read my first Karin Slaughter book: YAY! Honestly, I never would have picked up this book based on this older cover – it just doesn’t call out to me – but I kept seeing Karin Slaughter’s name over and over, and I’d heard that I needed to start at the very beginning with […]
