Goodnight from London

Ruby Sutton thought the call into her editor’s office would result in the termination of her employment; instead, she is offered the opportunity of a lifetime. She is to go to London and report from there on the European war. In the summer of 1940 there could be no sweeter assignment for an ambiti ...

Playing by Her Rules

Y'all, I love me some Amy Andrews books. I especially love her books that involve rugby. This one, the first in her Sydney Smoke series, is about Matilda and Tanner. Once high school sweethearts, the two suffered a traumatic break up when it was time for Matilda to head off to college. Now both b ...

The Gossip

The Gossip is the second novella in Jenny Holiday’s ‘80s themed New Adult series, the New Wave Newsroom. It focuses on the staff working at a college newspaper and with a modern historical setting of the 1980s, will bring a wave of nostalgia to readers of a certain age (like myself) with its ref ...

His Royal Secret

There’s something about royalty falling for us “normal” folk that is endlessly entertaining. From the (fairly) recent The Prince and Me to wonderful Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday, the fantasy has been kept alive for years. Plus, it has real-world examples – look at William and Kate, or go ...

Stranded With Her Rescuer

Stranded With Her Rescuer is what some might call a problem book. On the one hand, it's well written and the characters click together very well. However, their love story relies on a plot device that I suspect might turn off more than a few readers. If you can handle how Will and Kitty come togethe ...

Murder on the Last Frontier

I fully admit - I’m not the biggest fan of mystery novels. When I saw that Murder on the Last Frontier was set in Alaska, I was curious. When I saw the amateur detective was a woman in 1919, I decided to give it a shot. When I finally read the blurb for the book, and saw the heroine was a suffrage ...

A Nice Girl Like You

A Nice Girl Like You is a rich, densely-written story about two likeable characters. It's what I always hope for when I pick up a series book but all too rarely find. Samantha (Sam) Jagger, a freelance journalist in Toronto, meets acclaimed war photographer Ben Harris after responding to a newspape ...

The Suffragette Scandal

If Courtney Milan’s last book – The Countess Conspiracy – was a love letter to the forgotten women of science, those women who were ridiculed and derided because they dared to encroach upon the male preserve of scientific investigation and discovery, then The Suffragette Scandal is by way of b ...

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 ...

Deadline

Narrated by Stephen Lang I’m a big Sandra Brown fan who eagerly anticipates each of her new releases while relistening to my Brown favorites to keep my bouts of Brown fever at bay. Not only can I rely on another entertaining romantic suspense each year, but I rest in the knowledge that her new ...
