The Goodbye Café by Mariah Stewart was Allie’s story in the delightfully charming, small-town Hudson Sisters series. Allie was the toughest sister to warm up to, but growth and self-reflection stoked the fires.
SEAL’s Honor by Megan Crane is the first novel in the romantic suspense series, Alaska Force. The promise of military men, an Alaskan setting and some romantic suspense had me diving into this SEAL’s Honor. The tale that unfolded offered romance, humor, character growth and plenty of suspense. It left me eager for more stories about the men who make up the special ops unit known as Alaska Force.
The Sugarhouse Blues by Mariah Stewart is the second book in the Hudson Sisters series and it was delightful to return to this small Pennsylvania town as the sisters Allie, Des, and Cara, work to restore the Sugarhouse theater. Cute dogs, wicked banter, and family gave way to growth and bonding.
BECAUSE OF MISS BRIDGERTON by Julia Quinn is the first novel in a prequel series to the Bridgeton series featuring the Rokesbys family. Filled with snark and hilarious banter that has become the signature mark of Quinn’s writing I delighted in the antics of Billie and George.
Avon Romance gifted me a copy of DANGEROUS GAMES by Tes Diamond, and as soon as I read the blurb, I knew I had to read it. Diamond delivered a gripping FBI thriller with strong characters and a touch of heat. I devoured this novel in one sitting and cannot wait for more of the O’Connor & Kincaid series.
OK, confession time. I am slightly addicted to Immortals After Dark series on audio. Kresley Cole has me all wrapped up in this world and its characters. The audios narrated by Robert Petkoff are brilliant. He has become my favorite narrator. His male and female voices, accents, tone and pacing are superb. Dark Needs at Night’s Edge brought us a gruff hero and a spunky, ghostly heroine.
