Book review: A Case of Serendipity ~ K.J. Farnham

Book review:  A Case of Serendipity ~ K.J. Farnham

Intrigued by a person you have never personally met, only through an e-mail conversation (and not even about personal things)? A Case of Serendipity tells the story of Ruth and Henry, who meet thanks to an overly-active spamming coffeehouse. Compared to the books I normally read it’s pretty tame, but I’ve enjoyed reading this sweet story. “It is something I […]

Book review: Neighborhood Watch ~ Stylo Fantôme

Book review: Neighborhood Watch ~ Stylo Fantôme

Last year I’ve read Block Party, the story of Liam, one the Edenhoff twins. To my surprise, the guy was more much swoony then I thought he would be… But now we have Neighborhood Watch, the book of the other Edenhoff twin, Landon. And he is a true Stylo Fantôme hero. You want to like the guy, but at the […]

Book review: Marriage of Inconvenience ~ Penny Reid

Book review: Marriage of Inconvenience ~ Penny Reid

I have to admit, I’m a fairly ‘new’ Penny Reid fan. Friends of mine have read her work since the beginning, but I only started her books last year. And in that year, I have devoured every single book. Oops… I love the ‘Knitting in the City Series’, it’s about a great group of friends who are all very different, […]

Blog tour: The Scars I Bare ~ J.L. Berg

Excerpt By the time I arrived at the inn for dinner, I was a goddamn mess. Sweat was running down my back from the heat, even after changing my shirt twice. I’d changed my mind three times on whether to bring flowers for Cora, doubling back to the house at the last minute to grab them after I firmly decided […]

Book review: Release ~ Dylan Allen

Book review: Release ~ Dylan Allen

Is it possible to hide the truth from you loved ones? From the moment I read about Lilly in Rise and Remember I wanted to know more about her. I had the feeling she didn’t stay away by choice, that something had happened to her. With Release, I finally know her story. The book made me feel a lot, but […]

Book review: Fighting Irish ~ Katy Regnery

Book review: Fighting Irish ~ Katy Regnery

What do summer camps and unrequited teenage crushes have to do with each other? Most of the time it is what it is, but in Fighting Irish, Rory and Brittany get a second chance. They’re both adults now and know what they want from their lives. I’ve enjoyed reading this sweet story. “She was, hands down, the loveliest woman he’d […]

Book review + excerpt: At the Stroke of Midnight ~ Tara Sivec

Book review + excerpt: At the Stroke of Midnight ~ Tara Sivec

My favorite RomCom series is without any doubt the ‘Chocolate Lovers Series’, I love the craziness, the hilarious antics and the in-your-face characters. The author’s last few books I’ve read where far more serious and dealing with heavy subjects, but with At the Stroke of Midnight Tara Sivec is back with a charming RomCom. I simply love it. “A lady […]

Book review: The Wonder of You ~ Harper Kincaid

Book review: The Wonder of You ~ Harper Kincaid

A good blurb and a nice cover are enough for me to give a new-for-me author a try. The Wonder of You is my first read by Harper Kincaid and tells the story of Alice and Dare. Some parts I loved, other parts I liked and a few didn’t work for me personally. But overall it was an entertaining read, […]
