Review: Rakes and Roses (Mayfield Family #3) by Josi S. Kilpack

I have recently read two wonderful proper romances by this particular publisher and I was eager to read another. The cover is beautiful and I thought the premise sounded interesting.

I haven’t read the other books in the series but from what other reviewers had said, they could each be read as standalone books and I would agree. I didn’t feel lost or anything picking up the third book.

To say that I was looking forward to this one is an understatement, I love sweet or clean romances and have had a run of good luck lately. Continue reading “Review: Rakes and Roses (Mayfield Family #3) by Josi S. Kilpack”

Review: The Socialite by J’nell Ciesielski

This cover is absolutely stunning. The red dress just draws my eye right to the book and I knew before even reading the summary that this was going to be a book that I would want to read.

If you are a fan of historical fiction, then this book is likely already on your radar but if it’s not then it should be because it was a fun read!

While this book has romance at its center, there is plenty of historical details and information for fans of historical fiction to love as well. Continue reading “Review: The Socialite by J’nell Ciesielski”

Review: The Painted Castle (Lost Castle #3) by Kristy Cambron

This was a book that I said yes to before realizing that it was part of a series. When I realized that it was indeed part of a series, I was a little apprehensive about reading it because it was the third book in the series.

But I really wanted to read it because it sounded so incredibly good and I love ‘sweeping’ novels and this book promised that and so much more so I didn’t want to pass on in simply because I hadn’t read the other books.

So I decided that I was just going to have to read it and see how it went. I know I have had my eye on the first book for quite a while so I debated about going back and reading that one first but ran out of time so I went into this one simply hoping that I wasn’t lost in the series!

Review: Murder in the City of Liberty (Van Buren and DeLuca Mystery #2) by Rachel McMillan

When this book popped up for review, I was thrilled! I haven’t read the first book in the series, but it has been on my radar. Then this one came up and I was eager to dive in.

I am absolutely in love with the cover and can’t get enough of the colors and the gorgeous art deco details in the background. I felt like the cover absolutely captures the time period and would make readers excited to pick this one up……I know I was excited!

With this being the second book, I was hopeful that I hadn’t missed too much of the character back stories and that I wouldn’t be too lost. I also liked that it was set in Boston and not the typical New York or London settings that are so popular in many historical mysteries.
