Review: Paris Never Leaves You by Ellen Feldman

It’s so hard for me to turn down a story set in Paris. There’s a reason that Paris is called the city of romance and I simply love it and can hardly pass it up when a book comes around set in Paris, especially war time Paris.

This one sounded so incredibly promising that saying yes to it was easy. I love duel timeline narratives and this one sounded like it would be such a fun escape read.

This is a new to me author but she has written a few other books that I had heard of and I was eager to pick this one up and start reading. Continue reading “Review: Paris Never Leaves You by Ellen Feldman”

Review: The Woman in the Green Dress by Tea Cooper

Let’s just start by pointing out the obvious here—-this cover is gorgeous! And then I read the summary and couldn’t wait to dive in! A cursed gemstone set in WWI, sign me up is exactly what I said! Ok if I am being honest, I stopped reading the summary after ‘cursed opal’ because I was already sold on this book!

I haven’t read anything else by Tea Cooper but I know that she has written a ton of books, many of which sound interesting and fun so I felt confident giving this one a shot.

Especially given that this book promised romance, mystery, and intrigue. All the things I love in historical fiction. Not to mention I couldn’t stop staring at the cover of this book! Continue reading “Review: The Woman in the Green Dress by Tea Cooper”

Review: Across the Winding River by Aimie K. Runyan

I have been dying to get my hands on all of Aimie Runyan’s books since I first saw Daughter’s of the Night Sky a couple of years ago. There are always so many books and so little time—am I right?

Well this year I wasn’t going to miss out on one of her books so when I saw that she had a new one coming out, I put it on my calendar so that I wouldn’t miss out!

Reading this book was such a treat and I couldn’t be more excited to share a review if I tried! I now need all of her books and can’t wait to see what else she has up her sleeve in the future! Continue reading “Review: Across the Winding River by Aimie K. Runyan”

Review: Red Sky over Hawaii by Sara Ackerman

I read my very first book by Sara Ackerman last year and really liked it, so when I saw that she was coming out with another war time book set in Hawaii, I was eager to read it.

The covers of her books are all so beautiful and exotic feeling not to mention set on the gorgeous Hawaiian islands and featuring a unique view of WWII, it’s no wonder that I couldn’t resist her books!

This was a book that I made room on my review calendar for and I am so glad that I did because it was a wonderful escape! Continue reading “Review: Red Sky over Hawaii by Sara Ackerman”

Review: The Prisoner’s Wife by Maggie Brookes

The first thing that caught my eye about this book was that it was set in the Czech Republic.

My husband and I visited that lovely country a few years ago and while we were there we visited a lot historic sights while we were there including the Holocaust museum and the Terezin camp.

It was one of the most impactful experiences of my adult life and the rich history of that particularly dark time in history, was vast and humbling. So when I saw this book was set in that part of the world, it was an easy yes! Continue reading “Review: The Prisoner’s Wife by Maggie Brookes”
