Posted October 18, 2017 by Jennifer in Book Review | 1 Comment

read it, track reviews are a way  to track books for my reading challenges and they will be super short Save a Truck, Ride a Redneck was the hush puppy to the big catfish buffet that’s about to happen when the rest of Molly Harper’s new contemporary series, Southern Eclectic hits the bookshelves. This novella did what all starters for new series should. It set up the town and the people in it. Wither Harper is writing about vampires, naked werewolves or other plain Jane humans in some of her other contemporary romances the flavor is the same. Heart. Snark. Laughs. Sexy. Save a Truck, Ride a Redneck was an enjoyable fast read that has me wanting more from the Southern Eclectic series. I recommend it to […]


Release Day: Burn For You by J.T. Geissinger

Release Day: Burn For You by J.T. Geissinger

   Burn for You is the third book I have read by this author and she is moving into an auto-read, favorite author for me. Geissinger creates strong, relatable characters. They are realistic enough to have some quirks and even those briefly on page feel developed. The dialogue is smart and funny. She makes me feel, laugh and care. The heat level is high; these are hot and sexy. I love Bianca. She is so compassionate, hard-working and talented. She is also a pistol (fiesty). Her friends and family are close-knit. She is a chef with her own restaurant which I also love. On the surface, her suitors are a bit cliche. But there is more than meets the eye. Jackson is rich and starts […]

    Psychologist Evelyn Talbot continues her study of some of the most dangerous serial killers in the country at her special facility located near Anchorage, Alaska. Her newest inmate is Lyman Bishop, aka the Zombie Maker, whose weapon of choice is an ice pick, which he uses to crudely perform lobotomies on his female victims. Meanwhile, Jasper Moore, the man who brutally attacked Evelyn as a teen, is plotting his next move that will bring him closer to her.   Admittedly, this is a creepy series given what Evelyn does but this story really disturbed me, so much so it took me longer to finish because I was terrified as to what I’d find next when I turned the page. Getting Jasper’s point of […]

      Note: Sugar Daddy ends on a cliffhanger. Sela and Beck’s story continues in Sugar Rush and Sugar Free!   Listening to the first chapter of Sugar Daddy was one of the hardest things I’ve done in a while. Why? I requested Sugar Daddy for review on audio for the narrators alone. I love both Christian Fox and Lucy Rivers. I didn’t do much research into the title. I don’t think I even read the summary. So I didn’t know I was going to hear the heroine get gang raped. Granted the details were not as graphic as they could have been, mostly like due to the fact that she was so out of it from being drugged but it was still hard to […]

              The purpose of Thrifty Thursday is to read a book which was free (at some point). Kindle freebie on September 7, 2017  (currently still free at Amazon and Barnes & Noble as of writing this post) Overall rating 4.24 with 592 ratings and 47 reviews   I have enjoyed other series by this author and my freebies which are the first in the series are some of the best ones I get. They let me get a taste and figure out if I want to read the rest of the series. Plus this is a favorite genre, so this was easy to choose. Falling Fast is fast. The action is steady and suspenseful, as expected.  The characters seemed likable enough […]

           The Kate Shugak series is now up to 21 books and I have read them all. It begins with A Cold Day for Murder in 1992 and now we have Less Than a Treason, following the cliffhanger in Bad Blood after 4 loooong years. I hoped it wasn’t the ending, so I was excited to receive this to review. The mysteries about the crimes were half and half.  Some were easy enough to predict and others were less obvious. The issues left open at the end of Bad Blood were more suspenseful. The personal relationships had me tense until near the end. Apparently, I don’t like when the main characters and possible romantic couples are not geographically together for most of […]


Audio Review: The Sunshine Sisters by Jane Green

Audio Review: The Sunshine Sisters by Jane Green

Posted October 10, 2017 by Jonetta in Book Review | 0 Comments

    Ronni Sunshine is a famous but mildly aging actress and the mother of three daughters. By her own admission, she failed as a parent, so much so that as adults, they have very little interaction with her or each other. In fact, her middle daughter, Meredith, moved abroad to London in order to put some serious distance between them. Now that Ronni is facing a serious illness, she wants to make things right with her daughters and bring them together at her home in Connecticut.   I found this story fascinating in how Ronni’s narcissism and self absorption manifested itself in each of her daughters. The eldest, Nell, became aloof and emotionally challenged, except when it came to her son. Her middle daughter, […]

    Rosie Tipcott is married with two young daughters, Naomi and Leona. She works part time as a hotel housekeeper but her main role in life is taking care of her family. She’s pretty content with her life until one day her husband, Phil, suddenly announces he’s leaving as he’s met someone else. The “other woman” is wealthy, beautiful and can still wear skinny jeans. In that moment, Rosie’s comfortable world is turned inside out along with her identity. Who is she if she’s not her husband’s wife?   Such an authentic story! I really liked Rosie, even though she’s quite different from the enlightened woman with whom I normally identify. She loved taking care of her girls and making a home for her […]
