Romance, growth, family, and acceptance filled the pages, and I am looking forward to returning to this charming town.

Waking Amy by Julieann Dove

Waking Amy by Julieann Dove is the first in a three book series called Amy. Dove provided a wonderful story of self-discovery. The tale that unfolds is one that I easily slipped into and devoured in two-sittings. Filled with heart, growth and promises Waking Amy is the perfect novel for a lazy Sunday afternoon.

The Loft by Bette Lee Crosby

The Loft by Bette Lee Crosby is the second book in the Memory House Collection. Crosby takes us back to the Memory House with Ophelia just in time for Annie and Oliver’s wedding.

All the Rage by Courtney Summers

I have come to love Courtney Summers writing from her zombie novels to her newest novel All the Rage, a gritty and realistic look at rape and other events in a small-rural town. A poignant, beautifully written story Summers holds nothing back and once again, her writing left me breathless.

Close Your Eyes, Hold Hands by Chris Bohjalian

I first discovered Chris Bohjalian in 2011 when I read and loved his suspense thriller, The Night Strangers. Since then I have read two of his historical fictions The Sandcastle Girls and The Light in the Ruins. Each story is vastly different, beautiful, captivating and memorable. It seems no matter what story Bohjalian tells it is destined to entwine itself into my memory.

Review: All That Is Necessary by Jennie Coughlin

Last year I read a collection of short stories called Thrown Out: Stories from Exeter by Jennie Coughlin. My favorite was the story of two young boys who found dead bodies in a marsh outside of town and All That is Necessary takes us back to Exeter twenty years later with some of the same characters. This isn’t your typical story, there are relationships but romance isn’t the focus instead we revisit the past when it collides with the present and the effects it has on our main characters. I easily consumed this in a single afternoon and while not flawless it certainly held my attention.

Cupid’s Christmas by Bette Lee Crosby

I love Bette Lee Crosby’s books so when she approached me to review Cupid’s Christmas it was a no brainer. Cupid’s Christmas delivers a holiday tale that you will want to share with others. It reads like a made for television Hallmark Christmas special and I quickly consumed this on a cold afternoon. This is heartwarming tales that will lift your spirits and embraces the spirit of the holidays.

Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire

I grabbed a copy of Beautiful Disaster after seeing so many conflicting and passionate reviews. I had to know what within these pages was eliciting such feelings. Beautiful Disaster is a realistic look into the lives of two dysfunctional people who meet and fall in love. McGuire offers us a chance to get inside the complexities of this relationship and to understand what draws the moth to the flame.
