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.

Of course, no undeniable connection is without plenty of misunderstandings andContinue reading “Home For Christmas | Lily Everett | Book Review”

A Mistletoe Christmas is a collection of three stories each set in the small Texas town of Mistletoe.

Christmas in Eternity Springs | Emily March | Audiobook Review

WHY DID I LISTEN TO CHRISTMAS IN ETERNITY SPRINGS BY EMILY MARCH? Christmas in Eternity Springs has been on my holiday TBR for several years.

The Worst Best Man | Mia Sosa | Book Review

When I first heard about The Worst Best Man by Mia Sosa I have to admit that it didn’t seem like my cup of tea.

One Last Stop | Casey McQuiston | Book Review

One Last Stop is the sophomore novel of author Casey McQuiston. I think after the success of their debut Red, White, and Royal Blue readers were wondering if they would be able to follow up. Personally, I enjoyed Red, White, and Royal Blue more as a reader but, this is not to discredit One LastContinue reading “One Last Stop | Casey McQuiston | Book Review”
