‘Til I Want No More

‘Til I Want No More

My Review: There were many aspects to this read that I truly enjoyed. The summary intrigued me enough that it’s one I preordered,  though crazy life delayed my chances to dig in. Even though Maxine was engaged to Teddy, it wasn’t hard at all to see who really had her heart, and as a reader […]

The Finder of Forgotten Things

The Finder of Forgotten Things

My Review: One thing that always impressed me with Sarah Loudin Thomas’s writing is her ability to create characters you simply can’t help but feel something for. You may not always like them, but they are developed so well that they feel real–and regardless of their status as the hero or villian, you can’t help but be intrigued […]

As Dawn Breaks

As Dawn Breaks

My Review: Talk about a fantastic read! This one had me captivated from cover to cover. Coming in at almost 400 pages long, it was a journey to be sure, with the perfect blend of page-turning suspense and personal struggle. The pacing was very well done to keep the reader invested in the story without […]

Shadows of Swanford Abbey

Shadows of Swanford Abbey

My Review Oh goodness was this a fun read! The back cover describes it as “Agatha Christie meets Jane Austen” and I’m not sure I could have come up with a more apt description if I tried. The characters were intriguing, and my mind was spinning throughout the entire read. I was skeptical of everyone […]

Anxious for Nothing – Young Readers Edition

Anxious for Nothing – Young Readers Edition

My Review: This was a relevant and much needed read for young readers today. I think it’s important for parents to go through this with their kids as well so that they can have some tough conversations if needed, but I think this book is a great start to help kids who may be dealing […]

The London House

The London House

My Review: Oh, the stories that arise from hidden family secrets. This story started off with a bang, and I was immediately sucked in. The fact that the Waite sisters were twins and not just sisters, added an extra layer to the complexity and intrigue of their relationship amidst the lingering secrets that managed to […]

Waiting On Love (Ladies of the Lake #3)

Waiting On Love (Ladies of the Lake #3)

My Review: Oh goodness, this was such a good read and it had me sucked in right from the beginning! Although it took place long before my time, it was still fun to see familiar places like Oswego, Buffalo, and Niagara Falls. I loved the characters in this one, and each of them were well […]

A Flicker of Light

A Flicker of Light

My Review: After hearing wonderful things about Katie Powner’s debut novel I knew this was one I wanted to give a try. The premise certainly had me intrigued. I was quickly sucked into the story and it was evident to see the family drama bleeding out into other areas of the character’s lives. Although I […]

The Curator’s Daughter

The Curator’s Daughter

My Review: Not surprising in the least this was another read by Melanie Dobson that I couldn’t put down! The pace was a bit slower than some of her other reads, but the underlying questions that demanded answers kept me fully invested. I felt that the message of “history repeating itself” and the urgency to […]
