I’ve looked forward to going back to Barefoot Bay for months and this book didn’t let me down. Zoe’s story promised to be interesting as we knew she was hiding from something or someone. The last story ended with her running from Dr. Oliver Bradbury when he recognized her at the resort grand opening while performing the emergency delivery of Lacey’s baby. Zoe’s story and past may have been tragic but Oliver certainly was a big payoff. He is smoldering sexy and head over heels in love with this woman who is conditioned to run when people get too close. Time after time he affirms his love (in some really great ways) and commitment to her but Zoe has no frame of reference for loving […]

Quick Thought: OMG, it’s like Molly Harper and Darynda Jones had a love child. Pleasantly surprised! Why I Listened: A Little Night Magic was a total impulse buy from Audible.com. It was on sale for $4.95 and I saw that Amanda Ronconi was the narrator and love her narration job on Molly Harper’s books and after reading the summary it sounded like a cute, light listen so I went for it. What I Liked: Everything really. Much like Harper and Jones, March wrote a loveable heroine and fun secondary characters. Olivia is a quirky waitress in a small town where nothing happens. She is wans to make a big chance in her life and decides to move to Europe but her gang of gal pals […]

Review: Planning for Love by Christi Barth

At the beginning of this story, I was pretty certain that Ivy Rhodes, all pink and girly and glass waaaaay half full, was going to eventually get on my nerves. She is in love with love and is committed to having her brides get the most perfect experience on their wedding days. But, it eventually became clear that, while she seemed a bit starry-eyed and simplistic, Ivy lives what she speaks. Behind all that froth is a woman who is extraordinary at what she does because she believes in herself and would do anything to have her brides’ days be perfection. Ben Westcott has plenty of reason to be cynical and his pairing with Ivy at first seemed headed for eventual disaster. But, even he […]

I love any excuse to revisit Shane and Jen and while this story is short, it satisfied my appetite. It was wonderful to see how they are as a couple since they transitioned from nurse and patient roles. It’s been a year and they have to face the reality of Jen’s cancer history and how it impacts their future. Shane’s no longer hesitant to express his love for her (and he does this in a big way) but he’s still the guy that has a tough time-sharing his fears. Jen’s need to live her life without cancer being the big shadow over it gets in the way of reality but they find their way together. It’s a short and lovely story, a nice interlude until […]
