Mad About You

Mad About You is a typical Mhairi McFarlane novel - funny, sweet, filled with fanciful characters handling their fairly heavy problems with a light heart, lots of wit, and more than a little bit of humor. When we first meet Harriet Hatley, the most in-demand wedding photographer in Leeds, the gro ...

The Happy List

I’ve been meaning to read this one for ages and am really pleased I finally got around to it.  The Happy List is a wonderful friends-to-lovers/opposites-attract romance featuring life-long best friends, Gray and Kai who couldn’t be more different.  Gray is somewhat rigid and set in his ways; h ...

The Love Con

The Love Con is a fun, funny, and tender contemporary romance that takes on geek culture, con culture, and gives us a fun best-friends-pretend-dating-to-really-dating romance.  It’s delightful and warm-hearted. Kenya – KeKe - Davenport is a geek ne plus ultra.  She loves anime, fan conventi ...

On Board

Note: This review contains spoilers for the previous book in the series. I’m always impressed when an author can take a thoroughly unlikeable character and redeem them in a way that is both plausible and consistent, and that’s exactly what Jay Hogan does in her latest novel.   Book two in ...

Heartscape

Earlier this year, I reviewed Sarina Bowen’s Roommate, which was the starting point for the new multi-authored True North World series, which comprises four mini-series of books set within the world created by Ms. Bowen in her True North stories.  The Vino and Veritas novels are LGBTQ+ romances ...

The Roommate

Friends, there is nothing like reading a debut romance and loving it.  Surprising, funny, sexy and original, The Roommate is on my shortlist of favorite books of 2020.  It’s excellent. Clara Wheaton has loved Everett Bloom since they were small children.  Their families, part of the Connecti ...

Finding Mr. Right Next Door

There’s a saying that goes ‘here for a good time, not for a long time’, which perfectly describes the short (200 pages in e-book form) friends-to-lovers Finding Mr. Right Next Door. Lexi Dean and Matt Freeman are renowned amongst the Station 1 fireteam of Dry Rock, CO for their “twenty-f ...

House Rules

It’s too bad that the couple in Ruby Lang’s House Rules hadn’t stayed together in the first place because their second-chance romance is a dull love story. This third standalone installment in the Uptown series features mildly sympathetic protagonists whose largely uncomplicated reunion unfold ...

House Rules

House Rules is the third story in the Uptown series by Ruby Lang. Set in some of New York's original neighbourhoods, the houses and apartments the characters live in are as much a part of the stories as the characters themselves. I loved the first in the series, Playing House, especially the fact th ...
