The Life of Reilly

Writing a romantic comedy is a very tricky business, requiring a light touch and discretion to keep the comedy from becoming slapstick or worse yet - unfunny. Unfortunately, Civil-Brown forgot half way through The Life of Reilly that she was making a soufflé, not mashing potatoes. Lynn Reilly le ...

The Prince Next Door

Good romantic comedy always makes me want to read it in one sitting, or if real life intervenes, as few sittings as possible. I'm a fast reader, but a good comedy makes me want to race through a book, stopping only to savor a particularly funny bit. It took me weeks to finish Sue Civil-Brown's new r ...

Breaking All the Rules

How much you like Breaking All The Rules will probably depend on whether you think the heroine and her mentor are eccentric and spirited, or strange and annoying. As you can tell from the grade above, I, unfortunately, could see little worthy of adulation or even amusement, and the story was, for th ...

Next Stop, Paradise

Sue Civil-Brown is another new author to me. I hadn't read any of her books either under this name or under Rachel Lee, so I didn't really know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised by Next Stop, Paradise. This book is the sequel to Letting Loose, among others - it's the fourth in a serie ...

Chasing Rainbow

I've never had my palm read or called the Psychic Friends Network, and I always side with Scully on the X-Files, even though Mulder always ends up being right. So I wondered how I was going to react to Rainbow Moonglow, the psychic heroine of Sue Civil-Brown's novel, Chasing Rainbow. I ended up liki ...

B
Letting Loose

Well, let me introduce you to Sue Civil-Brown, better known as Rachel Lee. Rachel Lee is a particular favorite of mine, and has been for several months since I discovered her writing in An Officer And A Gentleman. While I still have four more books from the Conard County Series to read and I'm takin ...
