Review: A Little Bit of Grace by Phoebe Fox

I had no idea what this book was going to be about. I mean sure it had a summary of course, but in the sea of women’s fiction, many of the summaries as well as the covers tend to blend together.

That’s what was happening for me with this book. The cover was cute but didn’t really stand out for me, the title also cute but didn’t grab me, and the summary sounded nice but not memorable.

But let me tell you what was memorable—-the little notecard that came with the ARC stating ‘be a peacock not a pigeon’. It brought the biggest smile to me face and I immediately put it on my fridge. I loved it and every morning that I opened my fridge for the coffee creamer, it made me laugh and look forward to reading this book. Continue reading “Review: A Little Bit of Grace by Phoebe Fox”

Review: Barefoot on a Starlit Night (Rendezvous Falls #3) by Jo McNally

I have never read anything by Jo McNally but I am very familiar with her name. McNally is a prolific writer of romances and I see her books often at the local bookstore and supermarkets.

When this book came up for review I had no problem agreeing to it because with a name as long standing as Jo McNally, it proves she has staying power as well as a big fan base.

I was fortunate enough to have an opening on my summer calendar thanks to so many books being put off for publication until fall, so this book was an easy yeas for me. Continue reading “Review: Barefoot on a Starlit Night (Rendezvous Falls #3) by Jo McNally”

Review: Paris is Always a Good Idea by Jenn McKinlay

This year has been an incredible year for reading. With the unprecedented COVID situation, I have had a lot of time to get more than some extra reading done.

I have really been loving all the quick romances, women’s fiction, and beach reads. Back in the early spring, my summer calendar was all booked up with upcoming releases, but then many of my July books got their release dates pushed back to the fall leaving July wide open.

I decided not to fill up my July calendar too much and instead just keep with the original reading schedule and maybe add a couple of releases that sounded interesting. Enter this book. I thought this one sounded so cute and a quick read plus PARIS—need I say more? Continue reading “Review: Paris is Always a Good Idea by Jenn McKinlay”

Special Feature: Well-Behaved Indian Women by Saumya Dave

This book caught my eye almost immediately. Not just because of the bright eye catching cover, but because I love mother/daughter stories and this one sounded like a new fresh perspective from debut author Saumya Dave.

This is a story about reinvention and finding your dreams with generational perspective. It sounds so incredible and I only regret that I couldn’t fit it on my review schedule for this summer.

So instead I am bringing you guys a little info on this one and hope you will pick it up and check it out. Early reviewers are raving about this one as are top notch authors. It’s one you will want on your radar, check out all the details below! Continue reading “Special Feature: Well-Behaved Indian Women by Saumya Dave”

Review: Head Over Heels by Hannah Orenstein

At first glance this book wasn’t eye catching to me. I wasn’t really feeling the basic cover and there was nothing that stood out to me as a reader.

As I said the cover was just ok for me and the title wasn’t really unique but as I have said a million times before, I always read every pitch that comes across my desk because you just can’t judge a book by it’s cover, even though I think most of us are guilty of doing just that.

If I had gone just on first impression alone, I would have missed a really great rom-com! I loved the premise of this book and was thrilled with it cover to cover! Continue reading “Review: Head Over Heels by Hannah Orenstein”
