This Heart of Mine (#55 on AAR's Top 100 Romances)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on January 11, 2011 It's always such a thrill when a long anticipated book lives up to expectations. Readers who loved It Had to be You and Nobody's Baby But Mine have been waiting a long time for Kevin and Molly's story, and I'm so glad to say that this ...

First Star I See Tonight

Finally! This is what longtime fans of Susan Elizabeth Phillips have been asking for: another Chicago Stars book! But after years away from the Chicago Stars, how would this stand up? While it hasn’t toppled my all-time favorite – Match Me If You Can – it comes pretty close. Normally I’m all ...

What I Did for Love

I assumed that Susan Elizabeth Phillips' newest would be an A or A- read for me, or at worst, a B+. Unfortunately, it didn't work out that way. While in the end there were a number of things I liked about the book, I'll be honest: If not reading it for review, I would have put it down repeatedly, pe ...

Natural Born Charmer

What you start out with here is definitely not what you ultimately get. With opening scenes decidedly on the wacky side, Natural Born Charmer soon evolves into the story of a group of wounded people coming to terms with themselves and the mess they've made (with the help of others) of their lives. ...

Breathing Room

Remember all those Spencer Tracy/Katharine Hepburn movies? Charismatic characters speaking intelligent, witty, funny lines?

This Heart of Mine

When it comes to Susan Elizabeth Phillips, I absolutely love It Had to be You and Lady Be Good but I have had less luck with Nobody's Baby But Mine and Dream a Little Dream. Still, like many of her fans, I have been looking forward to catching up with Molly Somerville and Kevin Tucker from earlier b ...

First Lady

This is the type of story I would be afraid to pick up if it didn't have the name Susan Elizabeth Phillips on the cover, because there aren't many authors out there that could get me to suspend my disbelief long enough to read a romance about the First Lady. For one thing, those of us who were born ...

Honey Moon

I thought at first that this book was going to be about someone's honeymoon which didn't much appeal to me. But no, Honey Jane Moon, is the name of the delightful heroine of this novel. Brought up in a dilapidated South Carolina amusement park, she makes the trek to Hollywood at age 16 and ends up a ...

Dream a Little Dream

Ever put a book down with the intention of finishing it and then just letting it sit there for weeks on end until finally, you tell yourself you're gonna finish the story, no matter what? Well, that's what I did with Susan Elizabeth Phillips' Dream A Little Dream and now I'm kicking myself that I di ...
