Author Kara Isaac offers a twist in her repertoire of romantic comedies with One Thing I Know. While readers will still find witty banter between lead characters, Rachel Somers and Lucas Grant, the plot dives into complicated territory of deception leading to the kind of tension that made it impossible to put this book down. One of the things I appreciate about Ms. Isaac and this story in particular is the way she doesn't shy away from hard topics. This story doesn't skirt around touchy...

Never have I had a more immersive reading experience than within the pages of The Sky Above Us. Author, Sarah Sundin, once again brings WW2 history to life in this action packed story that doesn't slow down until the final page. The authenticity brought to the characters (especially the men of the 357th Fighter Group) made them come alive!! So much attention to detail it was hard not to imagine myself in the middle of an air battle right alongside Lt. Adler Paxton and the team. There were many...

The beauty of Ireland and her history come alive in Castle on the Rise. Author, Kristy Cambron, introduces readers to three stories set upon the sacred grounds where Irish rebellion and tenacious courage collide. There's so much that I love about this book. From the endearing Irish brogue to the fine detail playing over every setting detail to characters steeped with the kind of gumption and fortitude it was hard for me not to seek them out in history books. I found the historical portions of...

It's hard to put into words how I feel about this book because saying I LOVE it feels inadequate. I was captivated by the first page, drawn into life of Tressa Harlowe and the troubles thrust upon her and the Trevelyan household. Ms. Politano has this way of writing that makes me feel joyful. It's not just the amazing characters but the way she brings them to life with genuine emotion and thought that have me enchanted with each turn of the page. I LOVED Tressa and Donegan. I was enchanted by...

After reading Lady and the Lionheart--which wrecked me in the best possible way--I knew author, Joanne Bischof, would become a must-buy author for me because I knew there was no way she'd disappoint...and I was right!! Sons of Blackbird Mountain is a heart-tugging story that pulled me straight into the rugged hills of the Appalachia and had me emotionally invested in a story where the characters captured my heart immediately. For me, the best part of this story is Thor. *sigh* Ms. Bischof...

It's stories like these that make me so glad I've opened my heart to historical romance. Author Rachel Fordham's debut novel is a beautiful story that had me invested on page one. I appreciate the historical content Ms. Fordham includes with the orphan train and the plight of children aboard. It was fun imagining a town much like Little House on the Prairie complete with a character who very much brought the awful Nellie Oleson to mind every time she came on scene. I think my favorite part of...

Oh, this Christmas novella collection is SO sweet!! These amazing authors collaborated bringing the stories of four families separated by generation but connected through the legacy and legend of an heirloom that brings the promise of love and hope to the characters. What I love about novella collections like these is being introduced to new authors--especially ones outside of genres I normally read. Each of these authors brings her very best in their story, delivering developed characters and...

In book 2 of the Code of Honor series, Irene Hannon drops readers right into the action from the very first page. I really enjoyed plot line of this story. It was unique, thrilling, and well-developed making this story a quick page-turner. I enjoyed the characters, especially the shared camaraderie. If I had one complaint, it's with the warp-speed in which heroine, Kristen Dane, and hero, Luke Carter, discover they "love" each other. In this particular story, it felt like a lot happened...
