Review: Call Me Mrs. Miracle – Debbie Macomber

Review: Call Me Mrs. Miracle – Debbie Macomber

Sweet and warm Christmas stories with romance and chemistry; there you have Call me Mrs. Miracle in a nutshell. My Call Me Mrs. Miracle review: There are actually too very cute, warm and engaging stories in Call Me Mrs. Miracle – in the first one, Holly struggles to make ends meet since her nephew Gabe came to live with her while her brother was in Afghanistan. Jake Finley hasn’t celebrated Christmas for the past 21 years, ever since his mom and his sister were killed in an accident on Christmas Eve. When Holly and Jake meet, they feel vey comfortable with each other straight away, and there is a strong attraction between them. As different hurdles are thrown at this […]

Review: Innocent Prey – Maggie Shayne

Review: Innocent Prey – Maggie Shayne

  Another exciting, fast-paced and awesome installment in the Brown and DeLuca series – with a very nice side-dish of romance. My Innocent Prey review: WOW, let me just gather my thoughts a little bit, because Innocent Prey really took me for quite a ride! Rachel is getting more in tune with both her own self-help philosophy and her inner bitch, and that was a lot of fun to read about. She also managed to get involved in yet another investigation, while also having a little time to hang out with Mason outside of work as well. One of the things I really enjoyed about the mystery in Innocent Prey was the hush-hush around Stevie’s disappearance, plus the fact that […]

Review: The Siren (Original Sinners #1) – Tiffany Reisz

Review: The Siren (Original Sinners #1) – Tiffany Reisz

My The Siren Review The Siren is both quite horrifying, strangely beautiful, enticing, beautiful, scary, hot and delicious all the while making me feel slightly guilty for enjoying it so much! The prose is nothing short of amazing, and I think that is what made me love it so much, because even during a scene that disturbed me a little, the writing was so beautiful I still loved it. And Nora, she is definitely a heroine in every sense of the word! One thing I really loved in The Siren is that Nora is an author, and Zach her editor. And I have to say I enjoyed the e-mails going back and forth between them, with Zach telling her to […]

#COYER Review: Come Home to Me (Whiskey Creek #6) – Brenda Novak

#COYER Review: Come Home to Me (Whiskey Creek #6) – Brenda Novak

*I received a free ARC of Come Home to Me from Harlequin MIRA via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* As usual, any book in the Whiskey Creek series is like catching up with good friends I haven’t seen in a while. Come Home to Me is the story where Presley and Aaron are the main characters, and I was very eager to learn more about both of them, as they have both had pretty difficult childhoods, and both have also had trouble with alcohol or drugs. Turning their lives around hasn’t been easy for either of them, but Presley has had a lot of help from Wyatt, whereas Aaron has worked hard at his family’s auto-repair shop to […]

#COYER Review: Wake to Darkness (Brown and De Luca #2) – Maggie Shayne

#COYER Review: Wake to Darkness (Brown and De Luca #2) – Maggie Shayne

*I received a free ARC of Wake to Darkness from Harlequin MIRA via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Wake to Darkness picks up a few months after the ending of Sleep with the Lights On, and the readers are brought right into the action, as Mason comes to see Rachel mere seconds before she goes live on television to talk about her newest self-help book. Mason needs Rachel’s help once more, and she needs him! But she will not let him know how much he affects her even after a while apart with no contact at all. Fast paced, Wake to Darkness is still dealing with a mysterious serial killer, but this time, the killer is going after […]

Review: Sleep With the Lights On (Brown and De Luca #1) – Maggie Shayne

*I received a free ARC of Sleep With the Lights On from Harlequin MIRA via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Sleep With the Lights On is one of the best thrillers I’ve read in a very long time! Brilliantly written, the suspense always building, wonderful characters, a little romance and a lot of danger. It really has a lot of the things I’m looking for in a great read. Even the prologue hooked me – it was as if I could not put the book down from the very first lines of that, and I could hardly sleep because I wanted to get up and continue reading. I needed to know what would happen next, and how Rachel […]

Review: Take Me Home for Christmas (Whiskey Creek #5) – Brenda Novak

Review: Home to Whiskey Creek (Whiskey Creek #4) – Brenda Novak

Review: Home to Whiskey Creek (Whiskey Creek #4) – Brenda Novak

*I received a free ARC of Home to Whiskey Creek from Harelquin MIRA via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Home to Whiskey Creek deals with a heavier subject matter than the prior books in the series, and they weren’t all light and fluffy either! Adelaide can’t forget the graduation party that destroyed her faith in guys, and changed her life forever. Even by staying away from Whiskey Creek for thirteen years, she is weary being back – with good reason. Noah is out mountain biking when he hears a shout for help from the old mine. If there’s one place he wants to stay far away from, it’s the mine, where his brother died thirteen years ago in […]

Review: When Snow Falls (Whiskey Creek #2) – Brenda Novak

Review: When Snow Falls (Whiskey Creek #2) – Brenda Novak

*I received a free ARC of When Snow Falls from Harlequin MIRA via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* I just love the Whiskey Creek series and When Snow Falls is no exception! It is well written, with fleshed-out characters who try to do the best they can with what life has given them. I was happy to have this after I finished When Lightning Strikes, so I could continue with this universe straight away!
