Trouble’s Wedding Caper by Jen Talty – Review by Elizabeth Sanchez

Trouble's Wedding CaperTrouble’s Wedding Caper by Jen Talty
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Trouble’s Wedding Caper is the 8th book in the Familiar Legacy book series by Jen Talty. It is the first I have read, so it can be read as a stand alone book. This book has a lot of drama, mystery, comedy and a dash of romance. It tells the story of Annabel, who returns to her small town home of Jupiter, Florida after getting her heart broken in NYC. While at her best friend’s wedding, she finds her boyfriend cheating on her, and gets drunk with her best friend’s brother, and her high school crush Ethan. Flash forward months later, and they are both back home in Jupiter and turns out Ethan’s fiance was cheating on him as well. Maybe the time is finally right for them to act on their feelings they have been hiding for years. With the help of Ethan’s sister, and Annabel’s best friend, they go on their first date.
On top of all of that, there is a lot of strange things happening, most involving Annabel and weddings. She buys a storage unit full of wedding gowns, rings, invitations and presents. With the help of Trouble, a cat, who is more like a detective, Annabel and Ethan try to solve the crime. This book was unlike any I’ve read before, but I loved it. It was so cleaver and not at all cheesy as I thought it would be. I will be reading others in the series to see what fun they have in store.

I absolutely LOVED this book! It was not what I was expecting at all when I first read the blurb. This is the first book that I have read in this series so hence why I wasn’t expecting what I read but it has absolutely made me want to read more by this author now!
I loved the characters – Annabel and Ethan. Annabel was a determined character, she wanted to start over. I really enjoyed reading her story. There were some good twists in the story too. I really liked Ethan – he was just one of those characters you can’t help but like and then there is Trouble! Any book that has a cat in it is going to be a winner with me! I loved that about this story!
I thought that Trouble’s Wedding Caper was a fast paced story that was highly entertaining. I am looking forward to reading more from this author again in the future.

This was an unexpected delight! A bit of suspense, some romance, friends to maybe something more, and a sassy cat… all the fixings of a thoroughly entertaining read. I loved how the author engaged the reader immediately. I immediately connected to all of the main characters. This was a great book and easily read as a stand-alone. However, I am now going to be looking for the rest of the series and look forward to making myself familiar with Familiar.

TROUBLE’S WEDDING CAPER Familiar Legacy #8 by JEN TALTY

Four Stars

This story was so fun. I loved how the author put it in the cats POV. I was more interested in what the cat thought then the actual story. The plot was interesting especially the deal with the wedding items. Annabel was a super sweet lady who didn’t deserve the treatment she received from her ex. But we shouldn’t stick in a relationship when it’s not heading anywhere. I really had fun reading this story it was a quick read. I think stories like this are great for taking breaks from the normal genres I read. It gives me time to appreciate the authors. Ethan is clueless though. How did he not notice? The author’s writing style flowed nicely so you didn’t have any moments that had you guessing. I like stories that are easy to follow.

Trouble’s Wedding Caper is the eighth book in the Familiar Legacy Series by Jen Talty and is a wonderful story full of romance and mystery. This is my first read by Ms. Talty, so I didn’t really know what to expect when I started on this book, but I can now say that it definitely won’t be the last of her work that I will be reading, as I am already looking at others I want to explore. I enjoyed this engaging, and clever mystery, and the interesting and relatable characters. The story had humour, danger, intrigue, drama, and of course romance.
I loved that we got to hear from several different perspectives, including Trouble, the cat. He’s such a posh and refined feline- his witty, some what sarcastic personality really shone through and he became quite the scene stealer.
A great little mystery that will keep you very entertained from beginning to end!
Can’t wait too read more of Ms. Talty’s work!

Thank you, Ms. Talty!

This is my first book by this author, I enjoyed it from beginning to end. This is a romance-suspense story that took me on a journey of twists and turns that left me turning pages. My favorite character, is Trouble who is a cat. I also enjoyed how the author told parts of the story in his POV. Annabel and Ethan are also great characters and I loved their chemistry. Will they solve the wedding mystery and get their HEA at the same time? I highly recommend this fun, engaging book.

The story Trouble’s Wedding Caper (Familiar Legacy Book 8) by Jen Talty is a wonderful book that I loved reading. It has both mystery and romance. It hooked me in right from the beginning and I didn’t want to put it down until I had read the final page. I loved reading about the characters of Annabel Wilder and Sheriff Ethan Farris. Annabel is a woman who is beautiful and independent. She is a treasure hunter and has found wonderful things when she bids and wins a storage unit. She soon finds herself caught up in an investigation headed by Ethan. Ethan shows himself to be protective of Annabel. Danger follows the investigation into a rash of wedding burglaries. Will Ethan be able to solve the burglaries? How much danger is Annabel in? Will Trouble, the black cat, help Ethan with his investigation? There is an attraction between Annabel and Ethan. Will they act on their feelings for each other? Read this book to find out. This is a story that at times had me wondering what was going to happen next. I felt like I was putting together a puzzle in order to find out the guilty one. I felt a connection with both Annabel and Ethan and grew to care about them with each chapter that I read. I wanted them to find happiness. I also loved the character of Trouble. His quick thinking and wit brought a smile to my face. Don’t miss out on a wonderful story that has amazing characters. I would highly recommend reading it.

Annabel Wilder returns home to Jupiter, Florida seeking a fresh start after a brutal heartbreak. As a treasure hunter, she bids on a mysterious storage unit. Inside the unit, Annabel finds real treasure–wedding dresses, bridesmaid gowns, and jewelry.

But somebody else wants the unit and Annabel is in the way.

Love, Christmas – Movies You Love (The Holiday Series Book 2) Anthology – Review by Robin Rankin

Love, Christmas - Movies You Love (The Holiday Series Book 2)Love, Christmas – Movies You Love by Mimi Barbour
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Love, Christmas – Movies You Love (The Holiday Series Book 2 is an amazing collection of short stories by various authors including Tamara Ferguson, Suzanne Jenkins and Natalie Ann. I enjoyed each of the the stories I read but decided to spotlight a few by authors that are new to me.

A Royal White Christmas by Leanne Banks

Holly’s life is already in chaos, she is helping run her brothers farm. She meets the handsome stranger thanks to Brandi the Beagle.

I’m a sucker for any story that features a dog, but I’m partial to dogs that remind me of dogs I know and Brandi reminded me of my sister in laws dog Westley. Always getting into some and escaping. Very sweet ending.

Miracle on Christmas Tree Street by Alicia Street

Hannah and her daughter Abbie are starting a new life by running her Aunt’s Bed and Breakfast. After she gets there she finds all sorts of unusual little things happening all of which lead to a Christmas miracle and a happy ending.

The Holiday (Christmas) by Nancy Radke

Jodie is spending the holidays in one of the most beautiful places I have had the pleasure of going to, Hawaii. She is trying to escape a lot but has no clue what she’s going to find when she gets there.

This was another great story with a happy ending.

If you’re looking for great short stories to start getting you into the Christmas spirit then I would suggest you start reading now.

Love, Christmas – Movies You Love (The Holiday Series Book 2) Anthology – Review by Michelle Austin

Love, Christmas - Movies You Love (The Holiday Series Book 2)Love, Christmas – Movies You Love by Mimi Barbour
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Love, Christmas – Movies you love was a great 5 star read.
I loved this book and the 26 stories within the pages.

These are all new romance stories from so many great authors. Some were new authors for me and there were favorites as well. I love the twist on holiday movies with these stories, my emotions were all over the place with each of them. You can take your time and read a story here and there or sit and read them all at once. They range from second chance romance to historical romance and so much more.

A Wonderful life was an emotional read for me. Noel is about to make a drastic decision, he has too many people that will be impacted by his choice and his guardian angel couldn’t let him follow through with it. Than he meets Mary and things change for him. He was saved to help Mary and protect her. Will they get a HEA?

I was a mess reading Finding Love. When Lucy goes to her father’s cabin for Christmas. Lucy lost her father to a plane crash and being at the cabin makes her feel close to him. Then she meets Maverick the next door neighbor. Maverick feels like he’s known Lucy from all the stories her father shared with him. These two end up having sparks between them and develop some feelings. Will they have a HEA?

A Christmas Getaway pulled me right in and brought me to tears once again. Ryder goes on a ski trip to sulk in booze and get away. When he gets to the cabin he discovers it was double booked to Olivia and her son. He wasn’t happy about the situation. We learn as we move forward some of Ryder’s history, have the kleenex ready.

There are so many more great stories and I highly recommend you 1-click and get reading. I look forward to reading more from all of these authors. What a great way to get in the holiday mood.
