Review: Starry Night – Debbie Macomber

Review: Starry Night – Debbie Macomber

*I received a free ARC of Starry Night from Random House Publishing / Ballantine via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Starry Night is a breathtakingly beautiful story about Carrie and Finn. At the surface, there couldn’t be two more different people than these two. Finn is a secluded author who has never given an interview, and no one knows exactly who he is, or where to find him. Carrie is a journalist for the society pages in the Chicago Sun, but her boss promises her a different job if she can come back with Finn’s interview. After trying hard to find out where Finn is living, and deciding to forgo Thanksgiving with her family in order to make […]

Review: Dirty Minds – T. A. Williams

Review: Dirty Minds – T. A. Williams

*I received a free ARC of Dirty Minds from Harlequin UK Limited / Carina UK via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.* Dirty Minds is a very funny story about a professor and writer, Tom, who is working through the different stages of grief after his wife died two years ago. He has written a medieval story that was pretty bleak and violent, and his therapist suggests that he finds something a little lighter and more fluffy to concentrate on for his next book. He has the idea that because Fifty Shades of Grey has so much success, he should write something erotic, and possible have it in a historical setting. But he is sure he needs to get […]

Review: The Cowgirl Ropes a Billionaire (The Cowboys of Chance Creek #4) – Cora Seton

*I received a free ARC of The Cowgirl Ropes a Billionaire from One Acre Press via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* The Cowgirl Ropes a Billionaire is even more humorous than the prior installments in the Chance Creek series!

Review: The Cowboy Imports a Bride (The Cowboys of Chance Creek #3) – Cora Seton

Review: The Cowboy Imports a Bride (The Cowboys of Chance Creek #3) – Cora Seton

*I received a free ARC of The Cowboy Imports a Bride from One Acre Press via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* The Cowboy Imports a Bride is in the same vein as The Cowboy’s E-mail Order Bride, it’s hot, fun and has great descriptions of friendship as well as more romantic relationships. I loved getting to know Rob and Morgan, and the fact that even if they are different on many levels, they have struggled with feeling out of place during their whole lives as well. I felt especially sad when reading about Morgan – neither of her parents wanted her; they even hid her from their ‘real’ families and she was raised by her grandparents. I can’t […]

Review: Christmas at Cardwell Ranch (Cardwell Ranch #4) – B. J. Daniels

Review: Christmas at Cardwell Ranch (Cardwell Ranch #4) – B. J. Daniels

*I recieved a free ARC of Christmas at Cardwell Ranch from Harelquin via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Christmas at Cardwell Ranch is a contemporary romance with some supsense / thriller elements as well. I thought the thriller part of the story was very well done. On Tag’s first night back in Montana, he sees a waitress leaving the bar, without a coat, and she seems drunk. She gets into a car and disappears into the night. And from that moment on, she’s missing. One of her female colleagues go missing as well, and those who could possibly shed some light on these disappearances are unwilling to share. Tag and Lily try to solve the mystery themselves, but […]

Review: Just One Year (Just One Day #2) – Gayle Forman

Review: Just One Year (Just One Day #2) – Gayle Forman

Just One Year was on my pre-ordered list from the moment it was possible to add it there, and when I (finally) received it last week, I was so happy! I’ve been looking forward to Willem’s story for all this time, because that one special day he spent in Paris with Lulu, and then his disappearance was so well done. And then, to see how Allyson aka Lulu kept trying to find him, while having no idea where to start made me even more curious as to how Willem lived with this separation after having Just One Day together. My curiosity was quickly quenched as I kept reading this whole year from Willem’s point of view. Just One Year shows […]

Blogtour Review: Rekindled Dreams – Linda Carroll-Bradd

Blogtour Review: Rekindled Dreams – Linda Carroll-Bradd

*I received a free ARC of Rekindled Dreams from Entranced Publishing in exchange of an honest review* Welcome to my stop on the Rekindled Dreams blog tour. Rekindled Dreams is a quick read with both some humorous and some intense moments. It also has some things happening that could very well have been omitted in my opinion, as some scenes really did nothing to move the plot or the story forward. I did get a little frustrated with for example the things that happened between Vena and the Marshall, because it didn’t have anything to do with the overall story-arc, nor did it help me understand Vena. While I did quite enjoy Rekindled Dreams, I also found myself thinking that […]

Then, they are in New Hampshire for a very important meeting, but the meeting never happens.
