Almost Like Being In Love

Almost Like Being In Love is the second book in a series revolving around three girls separated as children by the death of their parents. Whereas the first book (Just The Way You Are) centered on sweet, good girl Hope (the eldest daughter), this second in the series focuses on Pepper, the rebelliou ...

Love, Louisa

If you can read a book in a day, barely putting it down for a break, then it must be pretty good. Love, Lousia is a book that started out with a witty bang, yet by the middle I found myself putting the book down, becoming a bit bored with the dragging plot. And the characters, which are interesting ...

Indeed, the book does become as interesting as the title, but unfortunately you have to get through the first couple of chapters of overstuffed inner monologue from the main c ...

The Courier

The Courier is a paranormal romance that starts out with an absurd, confusing plotline and one dimensional characters. By the end of the book neither of these problems really resolves. Yet, as flat as the characters were and as puzzling as the plotline seemed to be, the fast pace and bizarre story w ...

The Wedding Game

The Wedding Game is the third in a series revolving around the Duncan sisters and readers will enjoy catching up with the three women and their current excursions. Just as with the previous two books, Feather writes a detailed story with an inviting plot and with charming women, yet with romance sti ...

Halos

I have to admit I am not much of a fan of inspirational fiction, so I was rather leery of reading Halos. But I decided to give the book a chance, for I had heard positive comments about the author's storytelling abilities. The buzz was true; Heitzmann provides a smooth, suspenseful story, with inte ...
