AudioBook Review Winter Street by Elin Hilderbrand

AudioBook Review Winter Street by Elin Hilderbrand

AudioBook Review:

I was excited to see a holiday story set on Nantucket, I love the islands and coast, and the setting itself is a lovely place for the holidays.  I was not expecting a super heart-warming story from the blurb, but the ‘chatter’ about Hilderbrand’s characters being intriguing and engaging was a major selling point.

An Oath Taken: The Oath Trilogy #1 by Diana Cosby

An Oath Taken: The Oath Trilogy #1 by Diana Cosby

 Book Review

I can’t help myself: historic romance is my downfall and weakness.  In this lovely story, Diana Cosby brings us a knight, Sir Nicholas Beringar, an Englishman sent to become the new Castellan at Ravenmoor along the Scottish border.  Anyone remotely familiar with English / Scottish history will know that this is a wonderful setting for drama as the “Sassenach” is placed in a location where not all the locals will be friendly.

AudioBook Review Screwdrivered: Cocktail #3 by Alice Clayton

AudioBook Review Screwdrivered: Cocktail #3 by Alice Clayton

AudioBook Review

 

The second in this series I have reviewed, I found this installment much more to my liking, with a very clever plot twist and inclusions that helped to fuel and push the story forward with humor, light and imagination. Alice Clayton returns to bring Screwdrivered, a clever pun on the DIY elements as well as a cocktail, and introduces us to Viv, a software designer who really lives for her romance obsession, particularly historical in genre.  I could instantly empathize with Viv’s obsession: my obsession with historic romance notwithstanding. Viv is clever, determined, and wild-child notwithstanding, a touch obsessive. Read more

Three Little Words by Maggie Wells

Three Little Words by Maggie Wells

 Book Review: 

Completely out of the box in the more contemporary and erotic reads I’ve had of late, Three Little Words by Maggie Wells is a little gem of a novella, bound to please many.

The aunt of the bride and the father of the groom are ‘doing time’ hoping the wedding will move along so they can relax and perhaps enjoy the reception. Jo is ‘old Aunt Jo” a reformed (mostly) party girl who still has the ability to ‘tell it like it is”.   Read more

Santa’s Secret by Serenity Woods

Santa’s Secret by Serenity Woods

Book Review:

Mixing in the traditions and feel of the holiday with a nice mix of traditions, heart, hope, love and that particular flavor that comes from children, Serenity Woods has hit every note in this wonderful little holiday romance.

Santa’s Secret Village Resort in Lapland, Finland is the setting for this story, and Eva and her three year old son Oscar are there to bring him a good and happy memory.  Widowed just over a year before the story begins, Eva still isn’t ‘feeling’ the holidays, but wants Oscar to find the joy and fun in the holiday.

Skating at Somerset House: #LoveLondon # 1 by Nikki Moore

Skating at Somerset House: #LoveLondon # 1 by Nikki Moore

Book Review:

What a perfect introduction to this author and her new series: having never read Nikki Moore before, this short installment was the perfect bite of holiday cheer with fun characters, clever plotting and a sweet romance mixed in.

Holly has scored the perfect winter job: a former competitive ice skater and perennial happy-go-lucky lover of all things Christmas, she is an ice marshall (sort of a lifeguard/crowd control) at the Somerset House courtyard ice rink.  In her element – Holly is everything that an employer would want for that position: she can skate, she is helpful and always smiling, and she truly LOVES being on the ice.

Book Review:

Oh how I love my Scottish-themed historical romances! I’ve somehow missed the second book in this magical series – and I bought it to add to my pile of reads during my ‘blog hiatus”.. a girl can dream right?  But today I want to share about the third book, tied by setting and season and filed with the magic that is pervasive in Scotland.
