Mistletoe, Mischief, and the Marquis | Amelia Grey | Book Review

Mistletoe, Mischief, and the Marquis is another one of Amelia Grey’s Christmas novellas. This one is part of her The Heirs’ Club of Scoundrels series.

Christmas Joy | Nancy Naigle | Book Review

Christmas Joy is exactly what I expected it to be. To me, it felt like a good Hallmark Christmas movie in book form.

The Traitor’s Wife | Allison Pataki | Book Review

Historical fiction has always been one of my favorite genres especially when it tackles a subject that I’m not as familiar with. The Traitors Wife delves into the betrayal of Benedict Arnold and the possible role of his wife Peggy. Prior to reading this, I will admit that my knowledge of the betrayal of BenedictContinue reading “The Traitor’s Wife | Allison Pataki | Book Review”
