    Maggie Speakes is in New York to pack up her best friend’s apartment and settle what’s left of her estate after she was found dead in her apartment two weeks prior. But when Maggie discovers some curious things amongst her belongings, she begins to question whether Celine’s death was actually a suicide and uses her resources to begin investigating.   I really enjoyed the method in how this story was presented. The prologue provides the foundation for your mindset and makes you question everything you read going forward. We get pieces of Celine to help lead you along the way. I developed many credible suspects and scenarios, second guessing myself with each chapter. I’m not even sure if I got it right in […]


Dual Review: Marked in Flesh by Anne Bishop

Dual Review: Marked in Flesh by Anne Bishop

    Anne’s Thoughts I have loved every book in The Others series which has a new and unique world premise.  There isn’t really romance so much as a development of caring between many types of “people”  and I like that.  Meg is inspiring in her ability to collect friends of all types, which is a very urban fantasy heroine thing to do. Marked in Flesh is also a departure from the first three books; it’s VERY different.  When I had read a third of the way through there were so many people and places.  It’s bewildering when trying to organize it all in my head to follow the finer details of the plot.  Previously, the series revolved around Meg and the Lakeside Courtyard.  This […]

    Rivers Fitzroy is the youngest of the Breconridge brothers, all sons of the Duke of Breconridge who is still looking for a grandson to continue the legacy he’s carefully created. When Rivers enters into a wager with his friend to transform mousy theater dresser Lucia di Rossi into an actress, he never considers it would change his life so profoundly.   Unbeknownst to anyone, Lucia is already delivering a performance as she does what she needs to do to survive within a family of renowned dancers who thinks she’s talentless. Though Rivers did recognize a certain spark during the development of the wager, it still didn’t prepare him for the depths of Lucia’s skills.   This was a lovely story, reminiscent of Pygmalion […]

The Chicagoland Vampires has quickly become a favorite series with many 5 star reads.  Why? First, I love Merit.  She is so smart and funny.  I LOVE the quirky humor with its Midwest, Chicago, and cultural touches. And the food.  Who doesn’t love food?   I wish I had read this series sooner, but the wait between books might have killed me.  I appreciated having so many available.  I started with the first one on audio book while moving last summer and have just kept reading so I was ready for this new one. Please do read them all in order. Ethan is hot. Blond hair and green eyes really work for me.  His imperious, business-like manner is hilarious and endearing.  He’s smart enough to […]


The Best for Last! Fighting Dirty by Lori Foster

    Mrs. Foster has teased us with Armie and Marissa (Rissy) during the Ultimate series and we finally get their HEA in Fighting Dirty, and it was well worth the wait. If it wasn’t for school work I would have gobbled up Fighting Dirty in one sitting but instead it took me a week to finish it. But it worked out as a nice treat for me at bedtime after I finished my textbook reading and paper writing. And ladies, Armie is fun in bed! Rissy has had a crush on her big brother’s best friend, Armie since she was sixteen but what she didn’t know was that Armie noticed her back then too but never acted on it for two reasons. She was too young and he […]

      I waited about 5 minutes to start Alliance after finishing Linesman.  I had already requested the arc after starting Linesman because I knew right away.   I HAD to know more.  About 92% of the way into this book, I already felt the terror of it ending and not knowing when the next book would be available so I went to the Internet.  After much reading, I found the possible title of the third book, but no tentative release time. *Panics* I try not to write spoilery reviews and I don’t repeat stuff you can read in the blurb. So that leaves me with talking about the characters and the writing and my feelings.  And here, it’s all good. Ean continues to learn and grow […]


Fave so far! Tough Love by Lori Foster

Fave so far! Tough Love by Lori Foster

      read it, track it is a way for me to track books for my reading challenges and they will be super short. Tough Love is my favorite book in Lori Foster’s Ultimate series. (My least fave book cover though. LOL) Stack and Vanity is a great couple. It was fun to watch them get their HEA, their story is sexy, sweet and fun and like previous stories in the series has a bit of suspense to keep you on your toes. I think I enjoyed Tough Love more than the previous book, Holding Strong because Stack wasn’t over the top alpha like Denver was. And I like Vanity more than Cherry. So over all the couples were different and I connected with this […]

  I LOVED the beginning of the Ghost Seer series because the couple got together and stayed together, working TOGETHER.  The romance between Claire and Zach has never been in question.  The relationship and the effort involved in caring for each other, is part of their everyday. Claire and Zach each have their own issues and problems.  BUT they supported each other.  So with their struggles over the major career changes, housing and now the relationship, they still helped each other grow as people.  I like that.  Each of them pushed the other, just a little, to face issues and be more, providing constant acceptance whatever the choices. The touches of the Old West history are fun, although this is fiction. It is an interesting […]
