I loved Marina Adair’s St. Helena Vineyard series and was excited to begin her Sugar, Georgia series. Sugar’s Twice as Sweet was southern charm and small-town antics at its best. I laughed, swooned and was swept up by this slow-burning romance.

Winter Street by Elin Hildebrand has us spending Christmas with the Quinn family in Nantucket. Every year the B &B hosts a huge Christmas Eve party, complete with Santa. The inn is usually booked, and all of the children come home, but this year is proving to be anything but normal. Hildebrand takes us into this dysfunctional family and shares with us the chaos of family, love and the holiday season.
Mistletoe on Main Street is the first novel in Olivia Miles new Briar Creek series. As a big fan of holiday romance and small-town settings selecting this title was a no brainer. Set in Briar Creek, Vermont this second chance romance was sweet and I look forward to visiting again.
Never Judge a Lady by Her Cover is the final book in Sarah MacLean’s Rules of a Scoundrel series and what a ride it has been. Regency London, fallen angels, and sizzling romances delivered only as MacLean can. Never Judge a Lady by Her Cover brings us Chase’s story and I lost myself within its pages.
Hard to Come By the third book in the Hard Ink series by Laura Kaye is hands down one of my favorites. Derek and Emile’s story is sweet and hot and we gain more insight into the overall ARC situation. I love spending time with this motley band of brothers and the woman who steal their hearts.

I have loved reading Sarah Morgan’s O’Neil Brothers series. I started the series last year with Sleigh Bells in the Snow during the Ho-Ho-Ho Read-a-thon so it was only fitting that I ended it with Maybe This Christmas during this year’s read-a-thon. Some of my favorite romances are small-town, family oriented like Robyn Carr’s Virgin River series and Bella Andre’s Sullivans. Morgan offered up wonderful brothers, a ski resort in Snow Crystal, Vermont and just the right amount of heat for a chilly winter’s night.
Are you looking for a little something different to read this holiday season? Silent Night by C.J. Kyle offers up a suspenseful thriller set in the small town of Christmas, Tennessee. It comes complete with a serial killer, a woman on a mission and a sexy police chief trying to protect the innocent. Suspenseful with a side dish of slow-burning romance Silent Night, was an engaging holiday read.
To spice things up on Wednesdays between “Waiting On” posts and reviews, I am going to share ”Recipe and a Book Recommendation.” Today I am sharing Banana Nut Bread and Die Again by Tess Gerritsen. She is one of my favorite crime, suspense thriller writers and I cannot wait to devour her latest Rizzoli and Isles book. They work as standalone and I hope you will check it out. Enjoy!
A Cured Bloodline is the fourth book in Cecy Robson’s Weird Girls one of my current favorite series. It is urban fantasy series-featuring sisters who have unique abilities and takes place in the Lake Tahoe region. In A Cursed Bloodline, Robson splayed my heart open, chewed it and then carefully stitched it back together again.
