The Same Place

The Same Place is book two in Gregory Ashe’s The Lamb and the Lion series about a Utah-based wildlife vet and a con man – an odd couple if ever there was one – who, in The Same Breath, teamed up to solve a murder.  Like its predecessor, this book is a perfectly balanced combination of myster ...

The Same Breath

In honour of one of the principal characters in this book, I'm going to start this review with some statistics.  Gregory Ashe’s The Same Breath is the fifth of his books reviewed in 2020 to get a DIK review (he’s received nine since February 2019).  It’s also the eighth book he’s published ...

A Much Younger Man

A Much Younger Man is, as the title would suggest a May/December romance, and it’s the first book in Z.A. Maxfield’s Men of St. Nacho’s series – a spin off of her earlier books set in the small California coastal town of St. Ingacio, (called St. Nacho’s by the locals).  It does feature so ...

While visiting his childhood friend Pete in Forrest, West Virginia, both men are caught up in a late spring blizzard and take shelter with Dr. Lacey Berryman. Lacey came to West Virginia on ...

Dr. Strange Beard

Penny Reid is one of those authors with such a distinct style that you know immediately you are reading one of her books. No one has the same cadence or character voices that Ms. Reid does and it makes it such a delight to fall back into her stories. Dr. Strange Beard is a friends-to-lovers tale tha ...

Dating the Millionaire Doctor

Dating the Millionaire Doctor is the first medical romance I’ve read, and the medical details acted as a strong undercurrent to the story and really drew me in. This is a tale with a big heart, set in the gorgeous Australian bush featuring a country veterinarian and a high-powered urban anesthesio ...

Hope Flames

Sometimes the hardest books to review are the ones that are neither all that good or all that bad. That was how Hope Flames was for me. It is difficult to describe my feelings for this read because, although it was an easy read, it wasn’t particularly compelling or exciting. Burton has moved ...

Dog Days

I don’t always believe lists, especially lists of the best books of the year, which sometimes leave me wondering “What were they thinking?” However, after reading Publishers Weekly's list of best romances of 2012, I was intrigued by Dog Days. I downloaded and read the first chapter, and though ...

The Preacher's Daughter

Cheryl St. John is keeping the flame of Western Romance alive almost single handedly and doing a wonderful job of it. Her latest, The Preacher’s Daughter, is sweet, romantic, and just plain sigh-worthy. It came thisclose to being a DIK, but fell just a tiny bit short. Can I rate it a B++? Lorab ...

Sun Kissed

I’ve read several of Catherine Anderson’s books and for the most part have enjoyed them. She is known for writing heartfelt books, and Sun Kissed is definitely heartfelt. Anderson has been criticized for sometimes making her heroine martyrs and victims, but Samantha Harrigan is made of sterner s ...
