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 […]

The Other Alcott by Elise Hooper Review

The Other Alcott by Elise Ho..

Review: I completely loved The Other Alcott by Elise Hooper. In some ways, it was very much like I was expecting, being a book about the “other” woman “behind” someone very famous – I adore those books. In other ways, it surpassed my expectations. I knew going into it that I was getting a story […]

Review | Monticello by Sally..

Review: I thought I would be able to breeze through Monticello by Sally Cabot Gunning since I know a little bit about this part of history and because I love historical fiction so much, but I really had to take my time with this one. It’s so layered and detailed. But I love books like this […]

Review | The Beach at Painte..

 REVIEW: When I saw the cover for The Beach at Painter’s Cove by Shelley Noble and that it was set in a town on the shore, I knew that I wanted to read it. The fact that there were multiple generations of women in the same family coming to their family beach mansion sealed the deal for me. I […]

Why I Read It: I’m a sucker for reading beach-themed books in the warm weather. Or books with a beach on the cover. Or books that have a setting by the shore. When I was presented with the opportunity to read this book, the cover and title drew me in. Plus this is a series […]

Why I Read It: I’m all about summer reading and beach reading, and It Happens in the Hamptons by Holly Peterson looked perfect when I saw the synopsis. I love stories about “locals vs. vacationers” – especially in tourist areas like the Hamptons. Review: This is the very best kind of beach/warm weather reading. Katie moved […]
