Rainy Day Friends by @jillshalvis ~ A Review

by Susan Roberts

How it begins...

Most of the time karma was a bitch, but every once in a while she could be surprisingly nice, even kind. Lanie Jacobs, way past overdue for both of those things, told herself this was her time. Seize the day and all that. She drew a deep breath as she exited the highway at Wildstone.

RAINY DAY FRIENDS in the third book in the Wildstone series but I had no problems reading it as a stand-alone. I enjoyed it so much that I've just ordered the first two books in the series.

I Can Handle Him by @Debbie_K_Lum ~ A Review

by MK French

Quinn always loved Nick, who is seen as a troublemaker. It doesn't help that his last girlfriend Sienna had died in a car explosion. Most people in San Antonio think it was his fault and that he got away with murder, including Sienna's brother Reed. There are further circumstances that affect Nick, including resentment that he opened up a coffee shop to rival the one he, Quinn and their friend Tory used to work at. With her background in law, Tory starts looking into the problems affecting Nick to help him and avoid the creepy ex-boyfriend that continues to text her.

Mourning Dove by Claire Fullerton ~ A Review

by Susan Roberts

The Deep South in the 70s with its unwritten rules and slow-moving life is beautifully written about in MOURNING DOVE. The story is told in that languid, slow and relaxed pace that life in the upper echelons of Memphis society occupied during this time.

I’m back from hiatus with a review of an addictive book: The Thousandth Floor. Our past few months have been packed with 8th-grade activities: school dances, parent breakfasts, and a big graduation ceremony. It’s been fun but intensely busy.
