I Kissed A Girl | Jennet Alexander | Book Review

I Kissed A Girl is the debut novel of Jennet Alexander. I was drawn to it based on the premise of it being a LGBTQIA romance between a struggling B horror movie actress and the new make up artist on set. In my mind I was immediately visualizing a B horror set like something youContinue reading “I Kissed A Girl | Jennet Alexander | Book Review”

Blame It On The Mistletoe | Nicole Michaels | Book Review

Blame It On The Mistletoe is such a cute holiday romance. It is part of Nicole Michaels’ Hearts and Crafts series. I had previously read this story when it first came out but for some reason I never provided a review. So, I knew I had to read it again for my Christmas in JulyContinue reading “Blame It On The Mistletoe | Nicole Michaels | Book Review”

Christmas At Evergreen Inn | Donna Alward | Book Review

Christmas at Evergreen Inn is a short novella set within the Jewel Cove series by Donna Alward. I had not previously read any of the Jewel Cove books that did not feel lost at all. This is a story that you can enter with no pretenses and almost immediately understand the layout of the smallContinue reading “Christmas At Evergreen Inn | Donna Alward | Book Review”

On The Naughty List | Lori Foster | Carly Phillips | Sugar Jamison | Beth Ciotta | Book Review

On The Naughty List is a holiday anthology that was released by St. Martin’s Paperbacks in 2014. There are four books in this collection each with their own characters, chemistry, and holiday spirit. They were each enjoyable to read and introduced me to some new authors as well.

Christmas Wishes at the Chocolate Shop | Jessica Redland | Book Review

Christmas Wishes at the Chocolate Shop is a charming seasonal novel written by Jessica Redland. It is set in the small seaside town of Whitsborough Bay.

Mr. Miracle | Debbie Macomber | Audiobook Review

WHY DID I LISTEN TO MR. MIRACLE BY DEBBIE MACOMBER? Mr. Miracle is a Debbie Macomber Christmas story which I have read previously. I have also seen the Hallmark movie based on this story. Yet for some reason, I never actually reviewed the ARC as I was supposed to when it originally came out. SoContinue reading “Mr. Miracle | Debbie Macomber | Audiobook Review”

Starry Skies Over The Chocolate Pot Café| Jessica Redland | Book Review

After reading Christmas at Carly’s Cupcakes I knew I wanted to continue with this companion series. I quickly picked up the next listed one Starry Skies Over The Chocolate Pot Café and was immediately drawn into the main character Tara’s story. This one begins at Christmas time and continues through a whole year giving youContinue reading “Starry Skies Over The Chocolate Pot Café| Jessica Redland | Book Review”

Christmas At Carly’s Cupcakes | Jessica Redland | Book Review

I picked up Christmas at Carly’s Cupcake from Kindle Unlimited because it sounded exactly like something that would help put me in the Christmas spirit. What I didn’t realize at first was that this was actually the sixth book in a companion series all set at Whitsborough Bay. Luckily, I didn’t get lost with allContinue reading “Christmas At Carly’s Cupcakes | Jessica Redland | Book Review”

An Amish Christmas Quilt | Charlotte Hubbard | Kelly Long | Jennifer Beckstrand | Book Review

As a reader, I’m always interested in trying out new genres of books. One of these genres in particular are books that are written with main characters who are Amish. This is why An Amish Christmas Quilt seemed like a perfect introduction into this world. An Amish Christmas Quilt is a collection of three storiesContinue reading “An Amish Christmas Quilt | Charlotte Hubbard | Kelly Long | Jennifer Beckstrand | Book Review”

Home For Christmas | Lily Everett | Book Review

Home For Christmas brings me back to one of my favorite small town locations, Sanctuary Island, just in time for Christmas. This time the story follows Libby (a writer) and Owen (a wounded veteran) as they make an undeniable connection during the holiday season. Of course, no undeniable connection is without plenty of misunderstandings andContinue reading “Home For Christmas | Lily Everett | Book Review”
