Murder at Lolly Beach (Eve Sawyer mystery series Book 2) by Jane Suen

5 Stars

I love this series, I love Eve and how she cant help but get involved when she feels needed, whether anyone likes it or not LOL

This one twisted around enough to have me all confused and even truly scared a few times at what the outcome was going to be and the who that they were looking for. The who had me questioning everything throughout the book.

I loved the friendship between Eve, Cassie, and Bob and although I was suspicious of him through much of my reading I also really liked Jake and truly hope there is more coming in the future with that friendship…

I love ANYTHING Jane Suen writes, she is one of my top one clicks, her books always make you sit and think when you finish, there is always much to sort out. She has a way of twisting things so quick you don’t even realize what’s happening.

A very quick read because when you get started you have to finish in one sitting!

I Love it, as usual and can not wait for more!!

Don’t Worry, I Still Hate You by Marie Skye

5 Stars

Happily Ever After is a collection absolutely jam packed with some authors I know and many I didn’t. I’ve read a few from this collection and will focus on my favorite for this review.

I am a forever fan of Marie Skye, I’ll read anything she writes and know that I’ll be completely sad when it’s over and I have to wait to start another one. This one started out a little bumpy for me..Had to wrap my head around what was going on, kinda like coming into the middle of a movie. It did not take long to pick up what this author was doing though. I got all my answers as I kept reading and very quickly became completely invested in these characters. I literally laughed out loud so many times at these two. The back and forth was complete perfection and as the story progressed I realized I was experiencing every emotion possible while reading. I was sad, disappointed, SUPER angry at some truths that came out towards the end and then I found myself crying at the very end at how things played out. Hard to explain how much I loved this story, even though it’s hard to understand at the very beginning. It completely smooths out and flows seamlessly.

Reading this shorter story has made me miss this author’s writing so much that I plan to open the ones I already have and do a complete reread.

I also can not wait to read the rest of the stories I have not gotten to yet, and just know I’ll come away with some new authors to keep track of.

Loved It!!

Hell Hath No Fury (Life Is Hell Book 2) by Naomi Valkyrie

5 Stars

As usual this author hits it out of the park once again. I love this continuing story and these characters. This one focuses on one of my favorites from the first book, Sheridan and then Millicent who is one of the deputies in Juniper Lake. Im so very thankful that these books are very clean and any type of sex is just implied. The reason I say this is I don’t normally read MM or FF books. I just can’t relate to them and those types of relationships. Nothing wrong with them, it’s just harder for me to feel those connections. This series though is so completely awesome in its storylines and the smooth reading, and I never seem to want them to end. I love when all of the characters are together and their interactions are so much fun. I actually feel like I transport into these books and feel like part of the story.

I was still left with a few questions I had from the first book. There’s a history between Malakhi and Teivel and it feels like something I really want to know more about. I’m praying the next book is about Teivel and a possible connection that was beginning to form in this one.

I don’t normally read any sort of fantasy or paranormal but I’m a forever fan of this author and will read anything she writes. The addition of some of the types of characters in this story was fun. I fell in love with Jasper, Sam, and Larkspur and really hope we get a lot more of them in the next part.

You really in my opinion need to read these in order. I imagine a person would be left with a lot of question marks if you start with this one. Read them both, they are amazing and a lot of fun!

I can not wait for Book 3!

Faida (Heartstrings Book 2) by Brooke May

5 Stars

Oh how I love this series!! I didn’t think anyone could top Aiko but Faida has come pretty close. This was such a sweet heart warming story, heart warming being the key words there. These books have such unique storylines, not often, if ever, have I read books where the main characters play roles in a romance quite like this.

I read this book in a little under an hour and hated for it to end. I don’t want to give away any of the storyline so will just mention that Alice was one of my favorite characters in this book, her connection to Faida was awesome and having Aiko show up here and there also made me smile. I love this author’s writing style and am already looking forward to book 3.

This can absolutely be read as a stand alone but the first book is just as awesome so would recommend reading them both.

A definite feel good quick read! Loved it!!

A Kiss Under A Blue Christmas Moon (Daydreams & Dragonflies Rock ‘N Sweet Romance 4) by Tamara Ferguson

5 Stars

I fell in love with these two characters right from the start. Mia and Noah both reeled me in and their connection and how it grew through the story was once again vintage Tamara Ferguson. I love this author, I love that even after so many books in a few series that take place in Crystal Rock, Wisconsin, I never ever get tired of revisiting. I’ve said this before but opening a book by this author is like coming home. There’s a comfort zone I know I’m going to enter as soon as I open the book! Might sound sappy but it is Fact!

This author writes a second chance romance like no other. They are each unique and believable and I can not recommend this book high enough. This was the best way for me to end my Christmas reading this season, and might just be one of my favorites by her to date.

Loved it!!

Moonlit Whisper: An Irish Romance (Moonlit Destination Series) by Amy McKinley

4 stars

In normal Amy McKinley fashion, I devoured this book in less than an hour and although I’m not used to her writing such short books and might slightly prefer her longer novels, I did in fact enjoy this story. I kinda figured out how this would end pretty quick but how it got there wasn’t exactly how I predicted, so I appreciated that.

Everything that draws me to this author was present in this story, the smooth flow, and easy to follow storyline, it did take me a couple seconds to figure out I was in a flashback here and there, but the transition was quick so it did not take away from the story. Not going in to any of the storyline because it is so quick and I would be giving something away, so will just say that I highly recommend anything by this author, I love her Gray Ghost series, it’s one of my favorites, and these quick stories she is writing are also very enjoyable for a quick time out from doing the adulting thing 🙂

Moonlit Mirage (A Cook Islands Romance) AUDIO BOOK by Amy McKinley

 

5 Stars

 

I read this book a few months ago and when I saw it on Audio i just had to grab it. I have just recently started listening to audio books and going back and grabbing them from some of my favorite authors has made me look forward to so many more.

 

So after reading Covert Threat and the little snippet at the end about finding out what Hannah was up to I had to grab this book. This is kind of a part of The Gray Ghost series with a few of the characters crossing over, this was a super quick read that was full of all kinds of content, leaving out all the extra info that is normally a part of longer stories, yet still contained everything you expect when reading anything by this author. It jumped right in (lol you’ll understand why that was kinda funny when you read it) and had me on the edge of my seat right from the get go. Completely curious where this newer series will go, not sure if it will still be part of The Gray Ghost or what this author has in mind but I’m completely ready to find out because I love this all taking place in The Cook Islands, I could almost visualize everything that was mentioned in this story.

 

Loved it!

OFFICE MISTAKES by BETH HALE

4 Stars

This is my first read by this author and I did enjoy it, it was a super quick read and quite steamy in a few places. I like office romance stories and this one being during Christmas made it that much better. I was afraid I would not have enough time to connect with the characters but it turned out I was wrong and Audra and Charlie became a couple I found myself really pulling for. I loved their interaction and there were a few seconds where I wasn’t quite sure how this would turn out.

I definitely want to read more from this author. As short as this book was, I found that the style and flow of the writing was fantastic and really look forward to trying more of her books.

Awesome quick holiday read!

Stars Fall From the Sky (Reigning Hearts Book Two) AUDIO BOOK by KG Fletcher – Review by Debi Kircher

Stars Fall From the Sky (Reigning Hearts Book Two) AUDIO BOOK by KG Fletcher

 

5 +++++ Stars

 

This is my 2nd AUDIObook by this author, I’ve read the ebook and just like the first one I had to have the audio because it is told in this author’s own voice and I fell in love all over again with this book. Most of this review is a copy from my ebook review because the feelings are the same after settling in and listening to it being read to me.

 

This story grabbed me from page 1…squeezed the ever loving life out of me…destroyed me …blew life back in to me, knocked me back down again, and then picked me back up…I ugly cried more than once, well more than twice actually and felt completely worn out. I’ve read I think all of this author’s books. I’ve loved every one of them and will read them all again at some point, but this one even though the second in a series stands within my top favorites of all time. 

 

Ginger and Jonathon brought out every emotion I didn’t know I had. This story was written so beautifully and felt so real. I swear I feel like I stepped back out of Sandersville Beach after reading the last page. I loved Ginger in Emmy and Cappy’s book and love her even more now. Speaking of which, it was so completely awesome being back with Emmy and Thomas again as well..I loved their story and it was nice to be a part of their continuing journey. I love this town and I love the people in it…I want to move there!

 

I want so bad to get into more details of the story itself but I don’t trust myself to do that without giving away things I shouldn’t be so will end here and leave you with…these books are a must read and now a must listen, there’s too much in the first book to skip it so I don’t recommend that. I’m so hoping she decides to narrate Fiona’s story as well. 

 

Grab the books or the audios or both..I swear reading them first makes them like a favorite movie, then watching that favorite movie again this time in her voice and anticipating some of my favorite parts and how she handles them. I just LOVE it beyond words!

 

Many thanks and much love to this author!

Emeline and Cappy’s story in the author’s own voice..OH MY!

 

It’s been well over a year since I read the ebook version of this story and when I saw that it was released on audio I was thrilled, but then I saw that the author was reading this book herself, I was totally over the moon. Who better to put the feelings into the words then the author herself! I’m glad it has been awhile since I read it because it’s been long enough to where it still felt fresh and I fell in love all over again!

 

I loved these people and the story about their bond as teens and how they came back together as friends dealing with the loss of a character who quickly became one of my favorites in this book. The scene with the box and the missing ring literally took my breath away and that’s when Pop completely won my heart.

 

I love how she transported me right into the story, I could see everything clearly and feel like I was right there in the same room with these people. I’m so excited that she has also done the reading and has released Stars Fall From The Sky on Audio as well as that book stands up in some of my all time favorites, I loved Ginger in this story and can’t wait to add this to my audible library.

 

Grab this book or grab this audible, it is amazing and I’m sure you will love following Emeline and Cappy’s story as much as I did. This author did an amazing job narrating and my only fear now is that I’ll never want to read another of her books because I will want her to read them to me!  LOL and of course I’m kidding because I’ll read anything this author writes!!

 

Phenomenal!!
