True Spies by Shana Galen

True Spies by Shana Galen

October 3, 2014 Historical, Reviews 3 DNF

True Spies is my second attempt at Shana Galen’s recent series. I need to give up. Galen was once a reliable read for me but the new direction is incompatible with my tastes. True Spies starts off strong, combining a faltering marriage and a heroine who has had enough of holding… Read more »

Talk Sweetly To Me by Courtney Milan

Talk Sweetly To Me by Courtney Milan

October 1, 2014 Historical, Reviews 6

Well, it had to happen. I found the Courtney Milan book I went completely meh for. Is it bad? No. In fact, Milan’s Talk Sweetly to Me reminded me of Edith Layton’s beloved holiday novellas, despite having not a hint of holiday about. (For reasons I won’t enumerate, I was pleased… Read more »

Lord Carew’s Bride by Mary Balogh

Lord Carew’s Bride by Mary Balogh

September 29, 2014 Historical, Reviews 0

You’ve probably noticed that we’ve been pretty bad at posting reviews lately. We’ve all either got stuff going on or we bought new videogames we just can’t seem to stop playing and reading books and writing reviews has just not been happening. I didn’t want to go a full week… Read more »

Lie By Moonlight by Amanda Quick

Lie By Moonlight by Amanda Quick

September 22, 2014 Historical, Reviews 4

I thought I’d bring back another review, this time from 2005. I’m reasonably certain it’s Amanda Quick’s Lie By Moonlight. The original version of this had far more profanity with no title or character names.  Jayne Ann Krentz / Amanda Quick / Jayne Castle / Jayne Taylor / Jayne Bentley / Stephanie James… Read more »

Unexpected Interruptions by Trice Hickman

Unexpected Interruptions by Trice Hickman

September 17, 2014 Contemporary, Reviews 2

You guys! I finished a book! (I kind of hated it, but that’s not what’s important here.) Trice Hickman’s Unexpected Interruptions had some fatal flaws in structure but a number of interesting elements. I’m honestly not sure if I’d read another book by the author. I might, because Hickman’s voice… Read more »

The Game and The Governess by Kate Noble

The Game and The Governess by Kate Noble

September 12, 2014 Historical, Reviews 2 DNF

Two strikes and we’re out. Something about Kate Noble’s voice doesn’t work for me at all. The Game and The Governess is my second Kate Noble attempt. Previously I failed to love The Summer of You. Although The Game And The Governess uses two of my least favorite tropes (exchanged identities and bets… Read more »

The Color of Love by Sandra Kitt

The Color of Love by Sandra Kitt

September 3, 2014 Contemporary, Reviews 2

This book went on my shopping list a while ago when multiple people tweeted their excitement over seeing it released in ebook after it was published almost twenty years ago. When that wasn’t quite enough to get me over my wariness of cop heroes and click buy, I saw Kitt… Read more »
