High-Wire Heartbreak

High-Wire Heartbreak

Review: I couldn’t tell you what it is about the circus that’s always so enchanting, but this read had my attention hook, line, and sinker right from the very beginning. The two timelines fed off each other to produce a driving force that inevitably kept the pages turning regardless of any other to-do lists. I […]

Under the Bayou Moon

My Review: After hearing so many amazing things about this read I was glad to have finally had the chance to sit down and read it myself! The opening scenes of this novel were absolutely superb. The author did an incredible job of establishing the setting through the optimistic eyes of the heroine without the […]

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

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 […]

Review: Oh my goodness was this book amazing! I was captured hook, line, and sinker right from the beginning and I wasn’t ready for it to be over in the end. I was desperately wishing for more pages to magically appear so I could spend some more time with the characters but alas, all good […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Lines Between Us

  My Review: Oh my goodness, this book was nothing short of amazing on so many levels! It sucked me in right from the beginning, and as a historical fiction fan I liked that it was different from your typical WWII storyline. I liked the complexity of not only the external conflict, but also the […]

The Barrister and the Letter of Marque

My Review: Oh goodness, I don’t know where to start but I really enjoyed this one! Before I started reading a few friends of mine said that it had a bit of a slow start but then they really liked how it all came together in the end. So when I started reading I expected […]
