Review: True Places by Sonja Yoerg

I have been long impressed with Yoerg’s novels and when she has a new one come up, I am always happy to review it! One of the things that I love about Yoerg’s books is that they are standalone novels and the character arcs are wrapped up in the book rather than stretching it out to multiple novels.

She writes strong and impactful stories that leave readers satisfied with a resolved story that will stand out in the readers minds. This latest book is no different—a strong and memorable plot the left me wanting more yet left me feeling satisfied by the resolution.

A girl emerges from the woods, starved, ill, and alone…and collapses.

Suzanne Blakemore hurtles along the Blue Ridge Parkway, away from her overscheduled and completely normal life, and encounters the girl. As Suzanne rushes her to the hospital, she never imagines how the encounter will change her—a change she both fears and desperately needs. Continue reading “Review: True Places by Sonja Yoerg”

Review: Season of Wonder (Haven Point #9) by RaeAnne Thayne

If I’m judging this book by it’s cover, the first thing that goes through my mind is ‘pass’ mostly because it reminds me of something my grandma would read.

Most of Thayne’s books have a quaint cottage on the front and it just doesn’t scream romance to me. Over the last few years, I’ve tried to pick books based on what the summary says versus what the cover looks like.

That was how I found Thayne in the first place. When I was pitched my first Thayne book, the image of the book cover wouldn’t load. I enjoyed the summary and agreed to read it. Then I hoped on Goodreads and was like ‘ugh why did I decide to review a granny book?’

It was too late to back out so I went ahead and decided to soldier on…..to my surprise, the book wasn’t my grandma’s romance novel! It was like watching a Hallmark movie on steroids but in book form! Continue reading “Review: Season of Wonder (Haven Point #9) by RaeAnne Thayne”

Giveaway: THE LATE BLOOMERS CLUB by Louise Miller

I am thrilled to be offering this book up for giveaway this week!

Novelist Louise Miller returns to the sleepy fictional town of Guthrie, Vermont (the setting of her critically acclaimed debut The City Bakers’ Guide to Country Living 2016) to tell the story of two headstrong sisters, Nora and Kit Huckleberry.

Nora, the older and more “responsible” sister has remained in Guthrie her entire life, taking over the family business after their parents passed away at a young age. Her sister, Kit, left Guthrie behind years ago to pursue her dreams as an aspiring filmmaker.

After a tragic accident, the two sisters find out they stand to inherit the home and land of Peggy Johnson, the town’s beloved cake lady. When it comes to light that Peggy was in the process of selling her land to a big-box developer before her death, the two sisters find themselves at odds.

As with her debut, Miller has yet again treated us to stunning visions of Vermont landscapes and mouthwatering descriptions of freshly baked goods and delicious desserts. Perfect for anyone charmed by the small town magic of Gilmore Girls.

Giveaway runs 7/16/18-7/23/18

A winner will be announced 7/24/18.
