Home on the Range

This book is the second in Susan Fox’s Caribou Crossings series, but readers need not read the first book in order to enjoy this one. It does well as a stand-alone. This is a fairly solid book that might have made it into DIK territory if the author had not resorted to more than one deus ex machin ...

High Passion

I don’t like oysters. No matter how well prepared a dish, if it contains oysters, I will not enjoy it. Vivian Arend’s High Passion contains an element that I dislike so completely, it tainted my opinion of the entire book. I admit it’s a personal thing that won’t apply to everyone – a lot ...

High Risk

High Risk is the first in a new series by Vivian Arend about Lifeline, a high-risk search and rescue group in the Canadian Rockies. While the characters spend way more time exercising than I care to read about, the book was compelling enough to make it a quick read. Becki James has always been an ...

That Weekend

The first couple of chapters gave me the impression that this book was going to be lively and playful in a sassy sort of way. But that quality dissipated as I got further into the book. The change in tone, a meddlesome character, and a big misunderstanding derailed a good bit of my enjoyment in the ...

Death Echo

I’m familiar with Lowell’s historical romance titles, but this is the first romantic suspense I’ve read from her. While there was nothing terribly wrong with Death Echo, I’m sorry to say that I was bored out of my mind. It’s the only book I’ve been reading and it took me two months to fi ...

Marriage at the Circle M

Marriage at the Circle M sounded like a sweet romance about two nice people. In actuality, it's a sweet romance about two annoying people. As I spent most of the book wanting to bang their heads together, this wasn't quite the quick, fun read I had hoped for. Grace Lundquist is the sweetheart ...
