Meant To Be Yours by Susan Mallery ~ a Review

by MK French

Jasper left the military with severe PTSD and found a talent for writing novels. He still sees himself as broken and has never gotten involved in relationships for more than sex. This suits Renee just fine because she had back luck with relationships in the past. They wind up getting closer to each other, and maybe there is more than just the physical between them.

October's Best Reads

October can be a big book month as authors and publishers are trying to get books published in time for book award deadlines. It is also when Christmas books starting hitting shelves and so many favorite authors are publishing them these days that you have to start before Halloween to get them all read by the Christmas holidays. We read a bunch of different genres this month, everything from our go-to genres like cozy mysteries, women's fiction, and historical fiction to holiday reads, both for Halloween and Christmas. Here is our attempt to name the one book we read this month that is our favorite.

A Merry Murder by Kate Kingsbury ~ a Review

by Donna Huber

I love cozy mysteries, and I love Christmas stories. When these two genres collide I'm usually a very happy reader. Though I have not read any of the previous books in the Pennyfoot Hotel Mystery series, I could not pass up A Merry Murder. It's not just a cozy mystery, and it's not just a Christmas story. It promised to be an old fashion English Christmas. What could be better?

October Reading and Blogging Wrap Up

by Donna Huber

October has been filled with a bunch of books. So many of my favorite authors published books this month that I wound up with 8 ARCs. I usually read about 5 books a month (no including the audiobooks I listen to), so I was a little stressed when I looked at my calendar. Thankfully, several of them were Christmas stories so they were quick reads. I took a week off work to thoroughly scrub my house - August and September were so hot and dry that I barely cleaned a thing and I did want to close in the dirt when I close the windows for winter. I spent a day per room and got it all done. My house is sparkling! While I was off I went to a watercolor class at the library where we made 3 bookmarks. I want to add some quotes to mine.
