Three Sisters

Switching back and forth between women’s fiction and romantic comedy satisfies my need for poignant stories and stories that make me laugh, because it is rare to find a book that has both. While I liked Three Sisters, it didn’t tug on my heartstrings. In fact, while it is well written, the char ...

Summer Days

As readers, aren’t we supposed to like at least one character in a book? If so, I can’t figure out anyone to like in this one at all. Am I supposed to like a feisty old man who sells his granddaughter’s property without telling her? A shrewd, high-powered executive who supposedly looks over th ...

Only His

The penultimate love scene at the end of Only His involves a giant metal vagina. Yep. True love is declared amidst a giant metal vagina. This didn’t work for me. In fact, pretty much nothing about Ms. Mallery’s latest in the Fool’s Gold series didn't. This was my first time reading a book by M ...

Already Home

Leaving behind her more carefree stories, Susan Mallery has written a book with an emotional impact, one that stays with you long after you close the last page of the book. Moving home to Georgetown, Texas, after her divorce seems like the best decision for Jenna Stevens. After her husband explai ...

Almost Perfect

Almost Perfect, the second in Susan Mallery's Fool’s Gold series, is a frustrating read. The heroine is wonderful. I enjoyed reading about her relationships with everyone in the book except one person. Unfortunately, that person is the hero, who acted more like a selfish teenager than a thirty-som ...

Chasing Perfect

Nice is underrated. It’s not outstanding, it’s not spectacular, and it doesn’t break any molds. But there’s nothing wrong with nice, really. That’s Chasing Perfect to a T. Fool’s Gold is a small town with a quirk: It has a shortage of men. Without men, nature can ...

Hot on Her Heels

I tried a book by Susan Mallery a few years ago with mixed results. Since I know a lot of readers very much enjoy and look forward to her books, I thought it was time to give the author a try again. Which explains why I picked Hot on Her Heels for review. This wrap-up to the auth ...

Lip Service

Lip Service is part of Susan Mallery's Lone Star Sisters series, featuring the daughters of Jed Titan, a rich and nasty Texas businessman. I found a few bits in the book to interest me, but on the whole, I was pretty well underwhelmed. When Skye Titan was a teen she was in love wi ...

Under Her Skin

After last year’s Bakery Sisters series, I was looking forward to Susan Mallery’s latest trilogy, this time about three heiress sisters living in Texas. Unfortunately, the first entry in the series, Under Her Skin, just didn’t work for me on a couple of levels. Lexi Titan is ...

Sunset Bay

Sunset Bay is the first book I’ve read by Susan Mallery. It’s about a responsible, obedient girl who falls in love with a bad boy when they’re young and meets him again when her world is falling apart. While I normally enjoy this type of story, I did not enjoy this book. With its predictabl ...
