Haunted by Tessa Buckley – Review

Tessa Buckley’s newest novel, Haunted, is a delightful mystery for middle-grade students. This book is the second in the Eye Spy series. Tessa’s story had me all in a dither. I kept guessing who the culprit was yet didn’t figure it out until close to the end. My hunches failed me with this one.

Nine Lives by Kevin McManus – Review

The second book of the Ray Logue series, Nine Lives, is a crime reader’s dream. Kevin McManus offers an excellent follow-up to Death Rains Down. If anything, this novel is even better. I will never figure out how McManus fits so much adrenaline-filled magic in such a short volume.

Captivating the Cynical Earl by Catherine Tinley – Review

Catherine Tinley made me laugh, cry, and seethe with her new novel Captivating the Cynical Earl. This book is another Harlequin Historical novel that stole my heart, one where I found a home. This volume is one of many in a series. After reading this, I know I must read the rest before my brain will rest.

The Housekeeper of Thornhallow Hall by Lotte James – Review

I adore Harlequin Historical novels. They never disappoint. The Housekeeper of Thornhallow Hall by Lotte James is the latest in their lineup. This novel was everything I could have wanted in a historical romance. Lotte James wrote a heartwarming tale.

The Best Man by AS Kelly – Audiobook Review

The Best Man is a fine tale of long-burning love. A.S. Kelly wraps the reader in soft affection with some laughs along the way. When you throw in a witty grandpa and an adorable kid in the mix, you have yourself a mighty good story.

Jenn Reinvented by Grayson Avery – Review

Grayson Avery’s second foray into the Sweet Water Circle, with Jenn Reinvented, took me to new depths of feeling. The friends gathered and tried to set up a new direction for their wayward buddy. But, even with their humor and grace, I had a hard time with my emotions for this round.
