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!

Special Feature: The Bookstore on the Beach by Brenda Novak

There is something about summer beach reads season that never takes me by surprise! Usually around the beginning of March I start getting all the info on spring reads and beach reads. Unlike October when I start getting all the Christmas reads (which I am never ready for in October!), beach reads season is one that never sneaks up on me and is always welcome!

In Oregon, March is still relatively rainy, cold and often there is still a chance for snow. Last week it was a high of 40 and rainy, by the weekend it was sunny and 60. Right about now is the time I start longing for warm days and easy reads! Which is why I am looking forward to this upcoming novel from Brenda Novak! Novak is a prolific writer with loads of both holiday and beach reads under her belt!

I cannot wait for this one and am looking forward to escaping into a small beach town with all the romance and charm Novak is known for! Today I have an excerpt of this lovely read and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Special Feature and Excerpt: The Path to Sunshine Cove by RaeAnne Thayne

RaeAnne Thayne has been a favorite author of mine for a while! I love her Christmas books so much and her other romances aren’t bad either. She is a prolific writer who turns out consistently well written love stories and I cannot WAIT to read this one. Especially after the excerpt that I have included in this post for you guys to enjoy!

This one is set in the Pacific Northwest in a fictional coastal town and seeing as how I live in the Pacific Northwest and love visiting the coast, this one sounds like it’s going to be an extra special read for me. Setting and romance aside, you simply canot go wrong with RaeAnne Thayne.

She’s a marvelous writer who writes believable female characters with real life issues to address, and swoon worthy heroes who win me over every time. Not to mention she does small town settings so so so well. If you love womens fiction with romance, you will no doubt have heard from RaeAnne Thayne but if you have yet to give her books a go, I strongly encourage you to check her out! This beach read promises to be another hit for her!
