Excerpt: The Stepsisters by Susan Mallery

Susan Mallery is an excellent writer with numerous novels under her belt, I have only read a couple of her books but every time I read one I am left feeling satisfied and happy. Let’s be honest, I think we could all use a little happy right now right?! Mallery is known for her romances and stories about women and their friendships as well as their romantic entanglements. But this book promises to be a little on the different side.

Today I am thrilled to be part of a progressive excerpt tour for her latest novel out now, The Step Sisters. I think this is a super fun way to hype this book! When I downloaded my excerpt to read I was like wait, I need them all now because I am hooked on this one right now! If you love stories about sisters and the complexity of sister and sister like relationships then this is going to be one you want on your radar!

This one sounds like it’s going to be a bit of an emotional read but it sounds like it’s going to be emotional in a good sort of way and I cannot wait to continue reading it! And I do hope that you follow along on the excerpt train to check out all the wonderful goodness this book has to offer!

Review: The Newcomer by Mary Kay Andrews

Can it even be summer without a new Mary Kay Andrews book? The answer is no—no it cannot! I started reading some of MKA’s books a couple of years ago and they are always good as a beach read or a quick read on a plane on the way to your latest vacation destination! I picked this one up and read it in a matter of days which is what I expect when I pick up any of her books.

This book featured both a romance and a little bit of a murder mystery and I just loved that combo. If you love beach reads you no doubt have read MKA and know how great of a writer she is. She is the Queen of Beach Reads and I cannot dispute that. She is a prolific and seasoned writer who knows exactly how to craft a well written novel.

If you haven’t read MKA before, you really can’t go wrong with any of her books so just grab one and dive in and if you have managed to read this far I would encourage you to just grab this one because it’s another classic MKA book and if you haven’t read anything by her then this one is just as good as any so why not grab it!

Review: The Kindred Spirits Supper Club by Amy E. Reichert

This was a books that I was kind of ‘meah’ about when I read the description. It didn’t grab me in the way that I was expecting. Sure is a romcom with ghosts sounds interesting but for me ghosts are more about horror than romcoms. So it didn’t stand out as one that I was dying to read (no pun intended). However so many people were raving about it all over social media which made me stop and ponder a little bit more.

After a week of seeing it all over the place on social media I finally broke down and downloaded it! Suddenly this book went from ‘meah’ to ‘must read’ in the matter of days! I mean I was fully ready to not like it, but when I started to read it, it wormed it’s way into my heart when I was least prepared!

Don’t get me wrong, this book was quirky AF but it was so fun and I am so glad that I did read it because there was so much to enjoy even if it was a bit weird! I adored it almost instantly and I stayed up late one too many nights to finish is. If you are looking for your next romcom this one needs to be it! It’s great and stands out because it’s so quirky!

Review: Under the Southern Sky by Kristy Woodson Harvey

Kristy Woodson Harvey is one of my absolute favorite authors! She is the sweetest thing and I just adore her books. I mean is it even spring time without a KWH book? No—no it is not! Every spring I look forward to one of her new books and this year was no exception! Her books always have so much heart, charm, and general warm fuzzies!

Even the covers, I take one look at the covers and I can almost feel the soft sea breeze and sun on my skin. When I received the ARC of this one, it was early fall I believe and I couldn’t wait to read it but I wanted to save it for a time when I was really really ready for spring and April was the perfect month for that.

I sat down to start this one on a lazy early spring weekend and it was actually sunny out which made this one even more enjoyable to read! I read it quickly (a couple of days!) and couldn’t put it down. Every time I finish one of her books I am always left thinking that there is no way she can top that book and then a year later as I start another one of her books—-she somehow does just that!
