The Cottage on Pumpkin and Vine (Anthology)

They say never judge a book by its cover, but the cover is why I picked out The Cottage on Pumpkin and Vine. I love all things autumnal, and I can’t recall seeing another romance that focuses around Halloween. This collection of three novellas centers around Rose Cottage Bed and Breakfast and its ...

No One Like You

I have had this book for months and started reading it several times, then put it down for something more interesting. Then my daughter decided to get married and I had an excuse to leave it in my TBR pile. Well my daughter is safely wed and my excuses are no longer valid, so I knuckled under and fi ...

No Sunshine When She's Gone

Some authors have a writing style that either works for you or doesn’t. In this case, Ms. Angell’s writing style definitely didn’t work for me. Jillian Mac was hot and bored when she plopped into an open seat at the Psychic Fair planning to do nothing more than rest her tootsies ...

No Tan Lines

Readers have to relish family feuds in order to enjoy Angell’s newest novel. We’re talking Capulets and Montagues, Hatfields and McCoys, without the body count, but with snarking and innuendo instead. How much of this readers can take in a romance before the love interests get together will dete ...

Strike Zone

As a life-long sports fan, I enjoy romances featuring sports stars as heroes. While, I haven't read the rest of the books in the Boys of Summer series, I enjoyed this book as a stand-alone read. Taylor Hannah is leading an extreme skiing expedition when she learns that Bret Stryk ...

Squeeze Play

This baseball-themed romance, set in Florida just after the World Series, is a sweet story of a couple who have always come together as rebound sex partners, but now they each realize that they want more from their relationship. The bulk of the story comes from each of them trying to decide how to c ...

Crazy for You

I opened this book feeling sympathetic to the author: there's a typo in the cover quote! (Either that, or someone email me what a "sexy ramp" is.) Also, I had just watched a show about the Titanic, and was really keen to read about the tragic flapper ghost haunting an old luxury liner. Sadly, I only ...

Drive Me Crazy

Drive Me Crazy did. I love auto racing, and figured a romance set during a classic car auto rally featuring a woman mechanic as the heroine would be fun and different. If only the story had made sense and the characters had been halfway sensible, this would have been a lot of fun. But they weren't, ...

Calder's Rose

Calder's Rose gets an A for its main idea, in which two authors collaborate on a book featuring their popular series' characters. If only the execution had been as good as the idea, this would have been a keeper, but the book has too many problems to be more than just average. Shane ...
