The Professor's Green Card Marriage

Beware of judging a book by its title. Had I listened to my inner book snob, I would not have read Heidi Cullinan’s beautiful romance The Professor’s Green Card Marriage. I had passed over the novel a few times because I believed the clunky title to be too literal and uninspired for my tastes. B ...

Matzah Ball Surprise

Oh, my heart. I loved this book. I see the Christian side of my family reflected very often in romance, and in fiction in general. However, very rarely do I see stories where I recognize the Jewish side of the family. Matzah Ball Surprise is just such a book. It’s sweet, hilarious, uplifting, and ...

Into the Dark

Into the Dark, which is the fifth installment in Karen Rose's Cincinnati series, is one of my most anticipated releases of 2019. I fell in love with Dr. Dani Novak and computer hacker extraordinaire Diesel Kennedy way back in book one (Closer Than You Think), and I have been on tenterhooks waiting f ...

Get A Life, Chloe Brown

Wealthy Chloe Brown has fibromyalgia. She also has a list of things she wants to experience (I’m so over ‘tick off items on a list’ as a plot device), and major abandonment issues related both to her diagnosis (a douche of a fiancé, rarely mentioned, who ditched her because of her illness) an ...

Work For It

Talia Hibbert’s A Girl Like Her was one of my favorite books in 2018.  I initially doubted the story could or would appeal to me - as I mentioned in my review, it featured a heroine alternately described as rude, awkward, and, according to everyone in town, bad news.  But I was completely won ov ...

Work for It

A smile and a tear – that’s what you’ll produce as Talia Hibbert scores another win with Work for It, the angsty but deeply romantic story of two men who fall in love in spite of their emotional scars. Olu Keynes is a tart-tongued but handsome man who has been numbed emotionally thanks to a ...

Digging Deep

Digging Deep is the first book I’ve read by New Zealander Jay Hogan, and I have to say I was pretty impressed.  In it, the author takes a long, hard look at how living with a chronic illness impacts on every single aspect of life for the person who has it and those around them, while at the same ...

Storm and Fury

I'm always on the lookout for new urban fantasy series featuring unusual creatures, so I was over the moon to learn that Jennifer L. Armentrout was writing a spin-off of her Dark Elements series - which happened to be the first series I ever read featuring gargoyles. Plus, Trinity, the heroine of St ...
