Stars Beyond by SK Dunstall @SKDunstall ‏@AceRocBooks @BerkleyPub

This Stars Uncharted series should be read in order.  I really enjoy this author and the first book in the series, also Stars Uncharted was excellent and harrowing.  I have been reading several different science fiction / space opera type series where there are corporate groups running things and they are greedy and corrupt. That […]

The Last Sister by Kendra Elliott @KendraElliot ‏   #MontlakeRomance #KindleUnlimited

I discovered this author with the Mercy Kilpatrick series  and decided to try this new Columbia River series.  I’m totally in a mystery/thriller with a touch of romance mood so The Last Sister fit well. The murder case is in the foreground with the romance barely there. The law enforcement in the story are smart […]

Secret Chapter by Genevieve Cogman @GenevieveCogman  @AceRocBooks  @BerkleyPub  @penguinrandom

This is a joint review between Robin and me. We both are big fans of  The Invisible Library series since the beginning.  The world-building is exceptional, with new worlds in each book since Irene travels.  Irene is an awesome character, and all the characters are very well-developed. The writing in these stories is excellent, more […]

ICYMI: A Christmas to Remember by Jill Shalvis, Kristen Ashley, Hope Ramsey, Molly Cannon, Marilyn Pappano @JillShalvis @KristenAshley68 @HopeRamsay ‏@CannonMolly ‏@MarilynPappano ‏‏‏@GrandCentralPub  @JULIEYMANDKAC

ICYMI is a post from my early days of blogging at Yummy Men & KickAss Chicks.   You can see the original review here.  . This is an anthology of Christmas romances.   I think it can be difficult to develop characters sufficiently to care about them in shorter stories.  It is also challenging to have the […]

Valley of the Shadow by Elizabeth Hunter @EHunterWrites @jennbeachpa

Valley of the Shadow by Elizabeth Hunter @EHunterWrites @jennbeachpa

Elemental World  is a PNR spin-off series from the Elemental Mysteries which was more urban fantasy following one couple.  Elemental World series starts during the Elemental Mysteries but has a different couple in each book.  I don’t recommend reading the series out of order – I never do – but with the ongoing story throughout, […]

Audio: Christmas in Silver Springs by Brenda Novak @Brenda_Novak  #VeronicaWorthington @HarlequinBooks @HarlequinAudio‏ @HarperAudio  #LoveAudiobooks

I am always happy to come back to Silver Springs.  There is, however, an overall theme of people making some bad choices or being in bad situations and having to live with the consequences.  The school is a key part of helping the very young be in a better place and have improved chances in […]

Christmas Past by Mary Burton @MaryBurtonBooks @Zebrabooks

Christmas Past by Mary Burton @MaryBurtonBooks @Zebrabooks

I enjoy this author and she writes some excellent romantic suspense. I read this since I wanted some holiday themed stories to read for the beginning of December. The romantic suspense portion of Christmas Past was suspenseful and exciting.  The characters did have some development with a view to their internal thoughts, rationalizations and justifications. […]
