ARC Review: Blackbird by Molly McAdams

ARC Review: Blackbird by Molly McAdams

When I found out that Molly was releasing a new book this month, I had to jump on that band wagon. I mean, it’s Molly McAdams. When I sat down to review this book, I went in with an open mind that anything could happen with this book. I didn’t know what would happen, I didn’t even read the blurb on this one. I just went in almost blind and I was so glad that I did! The anticipation with each page turn was incredible. The characters in this story will gut you. You will feel anger. You will feel happiness. You will feel saddened. You will want to fuss at Molly McAdams. You will want to cherish the her and the book forever. That’s how emotional this book is. The theme of the story is not one you will take lightly, but you have to push on and find out what happens next. The twist of the story will hit you like a truck and leave you with your mouth on the floor and your thoughts in a whirlwind. The ending of the book will leave you wanting more. The ending of the book will leave you in a… Read more »

Revell Reads Review: A Moonbow Night by Laura Frantz

Revell Reads Review: A Moonbow Night by Laura Frantz

It’s been a long time since I sat down and read a Laura Frantz novel. When I saw this one available to read, I jumped on the chance. Something about the blurb of the book just called to me. I wasn’t sure what to expect with this one but it was calling. I am quite pleased that I took the chance on it! It’s a book worth reading for sure. A Moonbow Night takes us to Kentucky and introduces us to Tempe and Sion. The history that is woven, the attention to details so the reader feels a part of Tempe and Sion’s story, is absolutely incredible. I was instantly transported to Kentucky and felt the struggles, the attraction, the ways of the land as if I was truly there. Ms. Frantz created a 5 star worthy novel and wove it with captivating scenes. The characters, the setting, the page turning ups and downs of this beautiful historical novel is one I highly recommend to all! Well done, Ms. Fratz.

Review: Every Bride Needs A Groom by Janice Thompson

Review: Every Bride Needs A Groom by Janice Thompson

My Thoughts: Ms. Thompson is one of my absolute favorite Christian fiction authors. She is the queen of laughs and I love each and everyone of her novels. This start to a new series is definitely a fabulous addition to her works! She blends romance, comedy, witty characters and faith into one amazing, laugh out loud read. Following Katie’s story and hearing about her family. They all were a bit on the quirky witty side and I fell in love with all of them. Katie’s quest to win the ultimate wedding dress for a couture shop was awesome, and when she met Brady…..well let’s just say that I wasn’t going to sleep anytime soon when I got in the middle of their story. With plenty of inspiration woven in, and real-to-life events and characters that capture your heart, Ms. Thompson has once again created a novel that will forever be on my bookshelf. I can not wait to read more about her amazingly created brides and get my laugh on again in the next installment of Brides With Style! Well done, Ms. Thompson!

CLP Book Blitz: That’s A Lie by Victoria Klahr

CLP Book Blitz: That’s A Lie by Victoria Klahr

Excerpt I was instantly distracted as I walked into the space. Seth. Shirtless. I don’t think I need to explain my lack of focus. Or the drool. “You lied to me,” he said gruffly, sitting on the barstool at my counter. His blond hair flopped in front of his eyes, and my hands itched to push it back. Touching him again the way I wanted to would satisfy only a millimeter of the need I have, but it would relieve some of the pain. I turned around to hide my thoughts. “Ugh . . . I need coffee,” I said vacantly, reaching for my coffee maker. I didn’t even hear Seth move, but his hand grabbed mine and he turned me around, placing his hands beside me on the countertop to trap me. My breath caught, and I was positive he could hear my heart pounding in my chest. His blue-green eyes screamed hurt and anger, but I didn’t even care about him being mad. All that mattered was the charge that thumped between us. I was very aware of him. “You lied, Josie. You’re not supposed to lie to me.” “Seth . . . Come on,” I said, turning… Read more »

Tribute Books Blog Tour Review: Love On The Menu by Ellen March

Tribute Books Blog Tour Review: Love On The Menu by Ellen March

My Thoughts: I haven’t read a good Cowboy Romance in a long time. When the chance to review Love On The Menu arose I jumped on it. And, Ms. March definitely didn’t disappoint me in her work! I really enjoyed reading Jago and Riley’s story. Jago is a super sexy cowboy that made ME swoon reading about him. I loved his quirkiness and charm. His actions toward Riley kept me hooked to the story and I fell in love with him a little more with each page turn. Riley. Now that’s a character and a half. She was created by Ms. March in a way that made me, as a reader, feel as if I was in her shoes. Her handiness with helping Jago with his horses was awesome and I loved watching her and her feelings for Jago grow. These two characters are perfectly created for this story! Each page  turn brought something new to the story and the twists and turns helped keep me engrossed long in to the night. Ms. March has a wonderful knack for showing her readers a story full of wittiness and romance. The steam that rolled off the characters as they grew in… Read more »

CLP Blog Tour Excerpt: Vacation in Naples by Eva Fejos

CLP Blog Tour Excerpt: Vacation in Naples by Eva Fejos

Excerpt: Two investigators finally showed up and called the visit a simple routine check, but it was hard for them to convince the three women that this was indeed the case. They gave no information, scanned the neighborhood and the house itself, then departed at the same moment András arrived. Gran was in her element and kept repeating that she knew all this would come to no good end, and that someone needed to take proper charge of the case already. “No good end? What are you talking about, Gran?” Niki asked at last. “I’m talking about the crazed murderers you keep getting mixed up with.” “He’s not a murderer.” “Not yet! But all in good time!” she said, rolling her eyes. “This argument is completely pointless,” Niki’s mother interjected. “Let’s just hope that it was indeed just a routine inspection.” “Oh yeah? Well, I’ve read about criminals who were in hiding for years. And you are deeply mistaken if you think that a man who is capable of holding hostages can’t become a killer from one moment to the next. I know, because I read a book by that FBI agent, where he analyzed the personalities of serial killers…. Read more »

Review: The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

Review: The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

My Thoughts: I usually don’t read books about faeries and the like. I love werewolves and vampires but faeries…..well, they don’t hold my attention that well. However, I’ve heard loads of good things in regards to Ms. Kagawa’s writing style that I just had to give in and read The Iron King. It was my first read for 2015 and I’m happy to say that despite the fact that I don’t like reading about the Fey I’m totally into Ms. Kagawa’s work! I loved this book. It was definitely a great start to the new year! The beginning of the book, I will admit, was a little slow for me. I had trouble focusing and staying focused. But, I was determined to read it…..and to like it…..so I pushed on and on and I finished the story in just one day. And, I fell in love with the story line and the characters. They become a part of me and the story swept me into the Iron Fey series with a whoosh. After the 4th chapter, I didn’t know what hit me, but I was turning pages faster than you can say “Kagawa”. Being swept away like that, is a… Read more »

Review: Divergent by Veronica Roth

Review: Divergent by Veronica Roth

My Thoughts: I’m not normally one to read a dystopian fantasy novel. They generally do not catch my attention long enough to keep me finishing the novels. But, I kept hearing so many things about Divergent this and Divergent that (all of it good!) and my mother had purchased me a copy months ago. It was sitting on my bookshelf calling me. So, I broke down and read it. Oh my word. I read it in ONE day! Literally, like I started it at 6am and by 8pm I was on the final chapter. I loved every second of the book!  The world of Factions is not one I would ever think about normally. But Triss really helps to pull you into the Factions, following along side of her, hiding her secret with her and working your butt off to make it in the top of the pledges. The intensity that rolls out of the book is incredible, and Four….oh my. Definitely adds hotness to Ms. Roth’s story for sure! The attraction that was felt between Triss and Four was immediate and I rooted for them through out the story!  The world of Factioins would be a hard one to… Read more »

CLP Blog Tours Excerpt + Spotlight: Fuzzy Logic by Susan C. Daffron

CLP Blog Tours Excerpt + Spotlight: Fuzzy Logic by Susan C. Daffron

Excerpt: This is part of the scene where the main character, Jan, is on the plane to San Diego. She explains to the person in the seat next to her why she is taking the trip. ~~~ Ethel tilted her head, causing the ossified bluish curls on her head to shift in an unnatural way. “Why are you going to San Diego?” Jan sighed a little too loudly. Maybe Ethel wouldn’t notice. “My mother is getting married.” Ethel straightened in her seat and leaned closer to Jan. “That’s wonderful! I love weddings. Who is the lucky man?  What does he do? Are you excited? It’s beautiful to see such an expression of love. Where are they getting married?” It was apparent that Ethel had not been retrieving breath mints out of her suitcase. Jan replied slowly, “Well, they are getting married on the beach. The man was actually her next-door neighbor many years ago. I knew him when I was growing up.” Jan shrugged. “I don’t know if I’m excited exactly. But it will probably be interesting.” “Interesting? But weddings are so gorgeous. The flowers! The lovely food! How can you not just adore that?” Jan twisted in her seat,… Read more »
