We’re back at Happily Inc., the premier wedding destination in America. Maya is marrying Del Mitchell, bringing the Mitchell family and other familiar characters from Fool’s Gold to celebrate. Like a true fairy tale, we get to meet the wolf and see the darker underbelly under all the sparkle and light. Readers who enjoy a meaty tale will enjoy all the facets of this story that showcase Ms. Mallery’s talent.
I love an alpha hero and I love a heroine who can stand up to him and not be TSTL while doing it. Since I’ve been having issues finding good reads recently, everything came together for me in this second book in Joss Wood’s Pytheon Security series. I’m going to be hunting down the first book right after I finish this review.
I’m thoroughly in love with the shared-universe town of Portkennack, and eagerly anticipate each return visit and every new inhabitant to whom we are introduced. Those who come to Porthkennack generally find healing and solace, no matter what their problems or which issues they are running from, while those who take in the newcomers commonly find their own burdens lightened and realise new ways of looking at their lives. Not that life in the town is perfect; it has its own share of problem families and other sources of tension.
I love this writing duo, have all their books and as soon as I see there is a new one can’t purchase it quick enough. And when I saw the preview for this book it looked delicious. I got notice it was out at 8:00, had it purchased by 8:02 and started reading it by 8:30.
Life of Lies is a well-developed story that will constantly leave readers guessing. The suspense is skillfully maintained and the big reveal on the killer will take the readers totally by surprise.
Although Alex Beecroft is the instigator and driving force behind the shared-universe that is Porthkennack and its surrounding Cornish countryside, the stories to date have all been by collaborator authors. Not so for the fifth book in the series, as the town’s creator takes the reins and gives us yet another glimpse into this utterly fascinating community.
Viper is mysterious, exotic and unique even in the beautiful and deadly world that Ms. Singh has created in her Guild Hunter series. Formidable as her imagination is this world gives her free rein to let her imagination fly. Viper with his color outside the lines personality and Holly “Sorrow” Chang are unusual characters even amongst the strange and deadly characters that exist in this paranormal world. Raphael and Elena are the anchors of the rich tapestry that the author has woven. As wonderful as it is to see them starring in the next chapter of this saga it is even more wonderful to get an in-depth focus on each of the Seven as they find their own hearts and souls. read more…
This was an outside-the-box impulse read for me. I was intrigued by the unique cover, so I decided to give it a go. The story is a slow-burn, small-town contemporary romance between a grumpy single dad and an ER doctor. It’s told in alternating first person POV and I’d say it’s pretty low on the heat level – almost but not quite a closed-door romance.
This is another new-to-me author that I’m going to have to look up more of her back list, because I quite enjoyed this book. While it had an aura of sadness to it, I found it sad in a good way, if that makes any sense.
I’ve been avidly following the adventures of the Emperors of London since the very first book in that series, and while their stories have officially reached a conclusion with the ending of the tangled plots against the Crown, their cousins the Shaws now get to take centre stage in a new series of romantic entanglements. We’ve met a few members of this family already, and some have been paired off with Emperors, but there are a number of unmarried siblings in need of happy endings yet.
