So Wild a Dream

Two years ago, I declared Larissa Brown’s Beautiful Wreck was one of the Best Books of 2014. Last year, we raved about her novella, Tress. And I was so excited to read So Wild A Dream, set in the same world as Beautiful Wreck, that when I got the chance to review it, I was literally breathless. Ma ...

A Love Beyond Forever

A Love Beyond Forever is rather a mixed bag. At times it made for good reading, but when the romance turned into "the awakening of a young witch," I wondered where the entertainment had gone. Kristy Sinclair, an up-and-coming, modern, young career woman, is thrown back through time wit ...

A Murder in Time

I chose to review A Murder in Time hoping for a fresh take on one of my favorite genres. Instead, what I got was an uninspired story with clichéd plotting and tired character tropes. This is a book that does not work on any level - whether you approach it as a straightforward mystery or as a fish-o ...

Stars in their Eyes

Lynn Kurland’s stories have always been a comfort read for me. Handsome, chivalrous heroes matched with independent, caring women, all with the fantasy of travelling through time to find true love. I picked up Stars in Your Eyes excited to once again delve into this world, but I quickly became d ...

Tress

Earlier this year I read and fell head over heels over head over heels in readerly love with Larissa Brown’s Beautiful Wreck. (Melanie’s DIK review is here.) Ms. Brown was kind enough to send me a copy of her latest work, a luscious treat, called Tress. This novella, just 21,000 words, from i ...

The Here and Now

Recently I pulled up to a three-way stop at the same time as another driver. Feeling generous I waved to her to go ahead of me and followed her sedately down the road. Minutes later a car that missed their stop sign plowed in to her. She was fine, the other driver was fine but somehow they managed t ...

Beautiful Wreck

First things first - don’t judge this book by its cover. From the official cover, I was expecting something a bit childish - definitely with Vikings, but still childish. This is the author’s first work, after all, and it’s unusual to read a first romance that fully moves the reader. Well, cons ...

Time and Forever

On Sherry Southerland’s sixty-third birthday, her friend Lorena gives her an unusual present: a visit to a virtual reality studio in Hollywood which can replicate two weeks in any time period. Sherry, nostalgic for a missed romantic connection from her youth, chooses 1969 London. But to their surp ...

Midnight Train to Paris

Narrated by Tanya Eby I have mixed feelings about this audiobook, and had to think about my review – and grades – for several days after I finished listening. There’s a lot I don’t like about this time travel story, from the clichéd language in sex-scenes to the use of first-person prese ...

Geek Girls Don't Date Dukes

You know the stereotype of the Ugly American, a tourist from the U.S. who travels abroad but instead of immersing herself in the culture and trying to really experience the uniqueness of her environment, she expects everything to be like it is “back home”? Geek Girls Don’t Date Dukes is the li ...
