Books by Cheryl Reavis

Medicine Man

Cheryl Reavis is a highly acclaimed author about whom I've heard nothing but good things. I'm going to have to assume most of her books are better than her latest, Medicine Man, because this disjointed, uninvolving read is hardly impressive. At her sister Kate's wedding, Arley Meehan encounters ...

Blackberry Winter

My understanding of Harlequin’s new Next line is that the stories are about the “next” phase of a woman’s life and may or may not be romantic. Fans of Cheryl Reavis’s romances will be happy to know that while Blackberry Winter reads a bit more like women’s fiction, there’s still a nice ...

A Crime of the Heart

Some time ago a friend of mine recommended A Crime of the Heart as a good cry-your-eyes-out kind of read. I am only occasionally in the mood to cry my eyes out, so this one has sat neglected in the TBR for at least a year. But as I was picking out books to read for my week at the cottage, my fingers ...

The Prisoner

Having read Reavis's new historical The Bride Fair, I was curious about its relationship to the author's other historicals.

The Bride Fair

The Bride Fair is another of Cheryl Reavis's historicals set in Salisbury, North Carolina, the first of which was her RITA-winning The Prisoner (she's won three RITA's, the other two for contemporary series titles). Both historicals revolve around Union soldiers who survived their stay in a Confeder ...

The Older Woman

The Older Woman certainly started my series romance reading on a high note for 2002. Much as I enjoy them, I have to admit that many series romances are not all that distinctive when it comes to style. This one is. Cheryl Reavis is an original writer with her own unique voice. There is no way that a ...

The Long Way Home

The Long Way Home is the sequel to Desert Isle Keeper Little Darlin', and while The Long Way Home does stand alone, I highly recommend that you find Little Darlin' first and read it too. Rita Warren has made a lot of really big mistakes in her life. She bore a child out of wedloc ...

Little Darlin'

Staff Sergeant Matt Beltran is in a fix. He's a single man, a career Airborne officer, and somebody's left him with a little package in his car - a significant little package that wets and cries and wants to call him Daddy. Into Matt's life steps Corey Madsen. She's had a rough year. She's lost h ...
