Veena’s review of The Yellow Eyes of Crocodiles by Katherine Pancol Women’s Fiction published by Penguin Books 31 Dec 13 This title sounded intriguing, so I picked this book over another about fairy tales, which, as it turns out, is the better choice in light of Stevie’s review on her book.

Sandy M’s review of The Care and Handling of Roses with Thorns by Margaret Dilloway Women’s Fiction published by Berkley Trade 2 July 13 I’ve decided lately that when offered a book outside the romance genre that sounds good, I’m going to expand my horizons and go for it. That worked well the last time [...]

REVIEW: My Education by Susan Choi

Tuesday, July 9, 2013 0:00 No Comments

Veena’s review of My Education by Susan Choi Women’s Fiction published by Viking Adult 3 Jul 13 Reading a book that is full of the dark and twisted isn’t the book to read while on vacation. Having fun with friends and seeing new and exciting places could be what kept me from being fully pulled [...]

LynneC’s review of The Perfume Collector by Katharine Tessaro Women’s Fiction published by HarperCollins 14 May 13 I picked up this ARC because it had such a striking cover, and because the theme interested me.

REVIEW: Vanity Fare by Megan Caldwell

Friday, December 28, 2012 1:00 2 Comments

Laura C’s review of Vanity Fare by Megan Caldwell Women’s Fiction/Contemporary Romance published by William Morrow 26 Dec 12 This book is hard to classify. Although it uses many contemporary romance tropes—the destitute wife left for a younger woman, the two possible boyfriends, one of whom seems arrogant and aloof, the foodie theme—it’s really not [...]

Liviania’s review of Rainshadow Road (Friday Harbor, Book 2) by Lisa Kleypas Contemporary romance published by St. Martin’s Griffin 28 Feb 12 I resisted reading Lisa Kleypas’s new series, despite loving her historicals and Texas-set contemporaries.  “Friday Harbor” sounded twee and the cover and title of Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor seemed overly sentimental.   But [...]

REVIEW: One More Summer by Liz Flaherty

Sunday, January 29, 2012 1:00 No Comments

Laura C’s review of One More Summer by Liz Flaherty Contemporary Romance / Women’s Fiction published by Carina Press 02 Jan 12 Don’t be fooled by the cover.
