Review: The Pearl Sister (The Seven Sisters #4) by Lucinda Riley

I have been a huge fan of Lucina Riley’s novels for quite some time, although I think I missed one back in 2016, THE SHADOW SISTER, which makes me sad because I love her books. I simply must go back and read that one before the year is out and the next book comes out!

That said, I don’t feel like I missed a whole lot by skipping around within the series. Every story is unique and independent of the series as a whole, but that said they are all connected by central characters and other plot points, but again it’s not necessary to read them in order but it does help!

When this one came up I was so excited, though disappointed that I missed one in the series, I was still super excited to jump back into the story of the seven sisters and find out what romance lay ahead.

Review: The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen

What did I just read?

This book was all over my Instagram and Twitter the last few weeks and I was intrigued when one of my favorite authors was reading it as well.

It’s been a long time since I have read a book like this one. A lot of people compared it to Gone Girl, but I thought it was better than that. Gone Girl for me was kind of meah. This one was better.

A novel of suspense that explores the complexities of marriage and the dangerous truths we ignore in the name of love.

When you read this book, you will make many assumptions.
You will assume you are reading about a jealous wife and her obsession with her replacement.
You will assume you are reading about a woman about to enter a new marriage with the man she loves.
You will assume the first wife was a disaster and that the husband was well rid of her.
You will assume you know the motives, the history, the anatomy of the relationships.
Assume nothing.

Special Feature: PARIS FOR ONE by Jojo Moyes

I have been a huge fan of Jojo Moyes for years now. The first novel I read by her was ME BEFORE YOU and if you haven’t read it, you need to go read it like now! But make sure you have kleenex handy!

Some novels are better than others but not the whole, Moyes has pretty solid writing skills and her novels satisfy even the pickiest readers. Many are tear jerkers so be prepared!

Last year I had the pleasure of reading PARIS FOR ONE which was a delight, and now it’s out in paperback through Penguin Books.

This book, even though it’s a novella, would be a great edition to your book club! With the new year coming up, I know a lot of you are making your reading resolutions, this one would be a great place to start! I included a reader’s study guide link here for anyone who might be interested in using the book for their book clubs!

Review: Christmas in London by Anita Hughes

I feel like I gained 10 pounds just reading this novel. This is a great foodie lover novel if you are into that sort of thing.

Foodie lit is a new phenomenon for me but one that my tastebuds love and my waistline doesn’t. I love how charming novels like this are and I am surprised how much I loved the food element….needless to say, I devoured a roll of Pillsbury cinnamon rolls while reading this book….#sorrynotsorry.

It’s a week before Christmas and Louisa Graham is working twelve hour shifts at a bakery on Manhattan’s Lower East Side.

When a young cooking show assistant comes in from the rain and begs to buy all the cinnamon rolls on her tray, she doesn’t know what to do. Louisa is just the baker, and they aren’t hers to sell. But the show burned the rolls they were supposed to film that day, so she agrees. (more…)

Review: Sugar Pine Trail (Haven Point #7) by RaeAnne Thayne

Yes I know it’s a little early to be thinking about holiday reading. Every year, I swear that I will hold all holiday related reviews until at least November so I can reserve October exclusively for crime fiction, thrillers, and mystery reads.

However, some how a book always manages to grab my eye and I end up sneaking at least one holiday book in well before my November holiday kick off.

This book sounded like a charming holiday romance and sometimes you just need a little holiday cheer and romance.

Librarian Julia Winston is ready to ditch the quiet existence she’s been living. She’s made a list of new things to experience, but falling for Jamie Caine, her sexy military pilot neighbor, isn’t one of them. Julia’s looking to conquer life, not become the heartbreaker’s latest conquest. But when two young brothers wind up in Julia’s care for the holidays, she’ll take any help she can get—even Jamie’s.
