Personal Shelves Review

The beginning of October, we had to bury my grandfather. The days leading up to the trip, my mind was scattered and I couldn’t focus on anything. I tried reading different books from The List, but my focus wasn’t there. I tried to watch a movie, but my dvd player was broken. I was stuck… I couldn’t get past my own mind, so I went scrolling through my library on my Nook. I stumbled across this book that I had downloaded for free. It had the promise of a sweet, short romance, so I gave it a shot. Here are my thoughts:

The Cards of Life and Death

By: Colleen Gleason     Format: Paperback        Read: August 2014

 

Diana Iverson has it all, a blossoming malpractice firm and a seemingly perfect fiancé, when she receives news of her estranged aunt’s sudden passing. Diana inherits her aunt’s old home and decides to take a last minute trip up to Maine. While there, she discovers her aunt’s tarot cards which keep popping up at strange times, along with a handsome neighbor and his big, black lab. However, when strange incidents keep happening and several sabotage attempts on the house and her car, Diana begins to suspect her aunt’s death wasn’t from natural causes, but she may be putting her own life at risk.

Colleen Gleason’s mystical book is descriptive and will have readers feeling as though they are living the story. This book is about learning to conquer old insecurities and trusting in your intuition, in order to be open to trusting others. The second half of the book picks up the pace and is packed full of suspense. Though at times the storyline can be predictable, the ending contains a major twist that will leave readers shocked and speechless.

 

Enjoy!

Perfect Fling

Perfect FlingBy: Carly Phillips

(Serendipity Finest #2)

Format: Paperback

Read: August 2014

Erin Marsden has never set one foot, much less a toe, on the bad side of the line. Being the only daughter of the former police chief, she has maintained her good girl reputation. After leaving her brother’s wedding reception she decides to have a one-night stand with Cole Sanders, who has recently reappeared in town. Cole has many dark secrets concerning his long absence and he hopes to be able to leave town again soon. Things get even more complicated when Erin’s life is in danger and Cole is assigned to protect her.

Even though this book is the second in Carly Phillips’ series, it works well as a stand-alone story. Starting with a jam packed beginning, the storyline flows nicely while balancing all of the family dynamics and relationships. There is a lot of suspense as well as romance, however it is quite predictable. Overall for fans of Carly Phillips, readers will enjoy this latest chapter in the world of Serendipity.

Enjoy!

Snow Fence Road

By: Phyllis Edgerly Ring. Format: Paperback. Read: August 2014.

The Spinnaker Inn is a quaint and cozy place to vacation near the coast of Maine. It has been around for decades and its familial history is just what Tess Johansen needs to heal her wounded heart. After suffering the devastating loss of her fiancé, she returns to the one place that still holds fond memories for her. As for Evan Marston, he avoids the inn and all of its memories, as he tries to cope with the daily life since his horrific accident. Slowly throughout the changing seasons, these two become friends who rely on each other and the inn to mend their broken souls.

Snow Fence Road is a short, sweet and power-packing book. Readers will be riding an emotional rollercoaster, while turning each page as they try to figure out each twist and turn. One thing that the author focuses on is that tragedy, while devastating, could lead towards unanticipated opportunities. If this book were a little longer, the characters could have been fleshed out more. However the plot line is uplifting and the ending will leave readers’ astonished.

Tripped Up Love

By: Julie Farley

Heather Nester Meadows thought she had her happily ever after. She was married to her childhood love and had three delightful kids. However her world was tossed upside down when she unexpectedly lost her husband. Trying to manage the kids, staying strong on the outside and fending off the waves of friends filled with pity, became her daily routine over the past year and a half. That is, until a pothole struck her down during one of her morning jogs. Peter Adamson saw Heather fall and immediately rushed to her aide, but what he can’t explain is why he seems drawn to this complete stranger.

Julie Farley has created a sweet romance that develops in a completely relatable world. Readers will be able to connect with Heather on an emotional level as she struggles to find her own happiness. The point of view switches between Heather and Peter, which is confusing in the beginning. Even though this is an adorable romance, the author covers two very important topics through Heather’s behavior. The first being survivor’s guilt. Throughout this whole book, Heather is coming to terms with her loss, while learning when it is okay to be happy again without feeling as though she is betraying her lost husband. The other thing that Heather struggles with is something that every reader can relate to: the role of social media. In this technology-obsessed society, has human nature suffered a blow to self-confidence due to humans being consumed with how their actions will be taken by others? During the development of this book, readers will be cheering for Heather and by the end, they will be anxious to read the rest of her story in the next book.

My Sister’s Books Review #48

The Windy Forest

By: Sherry Jackson

 

Rhonda is shocked by the news of her aunt’s passing and she is caught off guard by her aunt’s will. Rhonda has inherited her aunt’s beloved cabin and gift shop in the mountains, but there’s a stipulation. Rhonda must live in the cabin for six months, prior to any future sale decisions. There’s just one problem, there a rapist terrorizing the neighborhood, oh and not everyone feels that her aunt’s death was accidental. Rhonda knows she needs to focus on her own safety; however her thoughts can’t seem to avoid her new strong, handsome neighbor, Tom. Will Rhonda and Tom figure out the truth before it is too late?

In her debut novella, Sherry Jackson shows potential as a romantic story-teller. Though the blurb on the back of the book leans more towards a mystery, the focus is on the building romance between Rhonda and Tom. The two mysteries are subplots providing an accelerant to the main storyline. There are numerous sentence structure and diction errors, but readers won’t be strayed from the intrigue. Overall this is a sweet story, with a dash of suspense.

Inevitable

Harmony #1 By: Angela Graham. Format: eBook. Read: March 2014.

Cassandra Clarke is enjoying the last few weeks of summer, before she begins her first teaching job. Running in the morning and organizing boxes full of old memoirs is how she spends her days, until gigantic moving trucks indicate a new neighbor is in town. Little does she know, her new neighbor is Logan West, a handsome, rich and strong man with a certain reputation among women. Will Logan’s son, Oliver, bring these two together or will Logan’s past be too much to handle?

This is a sweet, multi-layered debut novel by Angela Graham. Readers will be able to explore their own feelings and motives with each new depth revealed by the characters. The minor characters are just as vital to the story as the main couple and they will cause just as many strong emotions within readers.  Graham does a delightful job weaving her tale and balancing it through each of the characters. The beginning and ending are very fast paced, while the middle will have readers anxiously flipping to the next page. Inevitable is a sugary and promising start to this Harmony series.

Enjoy!

My Sister’s Books Review #47

Bride for a Night

By: Patti Berg

 

Duncan Kincaid was thrilled to marry Cairo McKnight five years ago, but his adventurous spirit forced him to leave her the very next morning and he ended up in jail. Several months later, when he received the annulment papers he was heartbroken and devoted himself to his secretive mission. Cairo McKnight loved Duncan ever since she first met him, when she was a teenager. Being married to him, even for just one night was a life-changing experience…literally. She is a mom to the precocious little five year old boy, but she must decide whether Duncan has matured enough to handle the responsibilities of being a father.

This book is a cute story. There is a secondary romance between Cairo’s aunt and Duncan’s father that adds a different perspective on second-chance love. Overall the story is endearing, but a tad predictable. The author seems to rush through certain emotions and discussions, but as a whole the story is a fun, modern romance. Readers will enjoy taking the journey with Duncan and Cairo as they explore their past and uncover the secrets hidden within Montana’s land.

My Sister’s Books Review #46

The Unwilling Bride

By: Margaret Moore

Lady Constance was betrothed to Merrick of Tregallas from the day she was born. She remembers him as a spoiled rotten child and doesn’t want anything to do with him, until she meets him as the dashing knight. Merrick refuses to return to Tregallas due to his dangerous past, but when he catches sight of his future bride, he wants to be a better man. Though his past may come back to haunt him and cost him his Lady before she is even rightfully his.

Margaret Moore writes about a strong, determined woman during a time period that women were supposed to not speak. She adds a subplot full of twists and turns that only add to the romantic storyline. Though this book is the third in a series, it works well as a stand-alone novel. There are many characters to keep up with, but the intrigue keeps readers entertained. Readers will be rooting for Merrick and Constance all the way until the end.
