Worth Fighting For

As someone new to Molly O'Keefe's Mitchells of Riverview Inn series, I had problems with this as a stand-alone. Jonah Closky's mother left his father and younger brothers while she was pregnant with Jonah. Now, 30 years later, she is developing a relationship with the two brothers and ...

A Man Worth Keeping

In A Man Worth Keeping, Molly O’Keefe creates a solid story of a woman in peril and the man who helps her find her inner strength. I adore damsels in distress, and heroes to the rescue are among my favorite premises. This one might not be perfect, but the book is certainly worth the time spent re ...

Baby Makes Three

Harlequin Superromances tend to have a bit more realism than the average series romances, and Baby Makes Three is no exception; it has realism in spades. A broken marriage, two miscarriages, a hero whose mother abandoned him, and a heroine with an alcohol problem – all in one book. It's a lot to c ...

Undercover Protector

When I go in search of a new book to read, series romances are not the place I normally start for a number of reasons. Largely, I find them to be decent reads, but nothing spectacular. This book, one of Harlequin’s Superromances, was just that: a reasonably good read, but not particularly fantas ...

Family at Stake

Dishing It Out

Dishing It Out is part of the doomed Flipside line. I'm not a big reader of series romance, but if more Flipsides were like this one, I doubt Harlequin would be pulling its plug. The cover is silly, but this is a nice little story. Marie Simmons is finally turning a financial and professional co ...

Pencil Him In

Pencil Him In is an otherwise boringly bland book with a couple of good scenes inserted. I smiled a time or two, but I never connected with the characters, and I wondered what they saw in each other. This is a piffle of a book. Anna Simmons' childhood consisted of being dragged around by her ...

Kiss the Cook

This Duets novel promises two romantic comedies about the "good ol' Cook Brothers" introduced in Molly O'Keefe's Too Many Cooks (Duets #62). When I began this book, I hadn't a clue as to who these Cook people were, but soon discovered they're a warm-hearted and somewhat meddling bunch of nice folks. ...
