Sweet Little Lies is the start of a new series from Jill Shalvis and if you’re already a fan of hers, you will find nothing to complain about here.

Kissing Santa Claus

I have on my bookshelves a number of anthologies that I keep for just one of the stories in the book. Kissing Santa Claus is now the newest addition to that pile. Bah, Handsome! by Jill Shalvis is a marked improvement, and is easily the best story of the book. Hope O’Brien has a bit of a pr ...

Always on My Mind

Narrated by Annie Greene I haven’t read all of the books in the author’s Lucky Harbor series but have enjoyed those I have read. But while I completely enjoyed the narration in this latest entry, the story, while cute in parts, has a few too many flaws for me to recommend. I thought I was ...
