Nothing makes me happier than a stronger second book in a series and such was the case with A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir. This is the second novel in young adult dystopian fantasy series An Ember in the Ashes. (Which ironically was standalone, then duology and now there are two more books in the works) Brilliant, fast paced and exquisitely written the audio narrated by Katharine McEwan, Fiona Hardingham and Steve West was completely addictive.
Roadside Assistance by Marie Harte is one of those books that captured my heart. The second book in the Body Shop Bad Boys series, Harte touched on body issues with a heroine I flat-out adored. Foley our hero is far from polished, and speaks his mind, but the boy is all heart. I laughed, swooned and cried making Roadside Assistance a favorite for 2016.
Deja Who by MaryJanice Davidson is the first in a new urban fantasy series where folks are aware of their past lives. It explores reincarnation as it shares famous characters from the past and introduces heroine Leah Nazir who navigates her own tragic past, helps clients with theirs, and waits to be murdered.
I love anthologies particularly ones surrounding a holiday theme. The Cottage on Pumpkin and Vine by Kate Angell, Jennifer Dawson and Sharla Lovelace takes place in Moonbright, Maine at a picturesque B&B. Three romances surrounded by apple bobbing, crisp autumn air and a little magic make it a must read.
The Sapphire Heist by Lauren Blakely is the second novel in the Jewel series and concluded Jake and Steph’s story. Once again, I chose to listen as Sebastian York narrated. Blakely delivered a fun romantic suspense with twists and plenty of heat. The Sapphire Heist was an entertaining listen and I hope we get to revisit these characters again.
Today I am excited to invite Sophia Rose to share her review of Revenge in a Cold River by Anne Perry. Many of you know Sophia as a co-blogger at Delightful Reader. Sophia is a book addict like myself and loves to read a plethora of genres. Since Delightful Reader focuses on books with a romance, Sophia will occasionally pop over here to Caffeinated and share other genres she loves. I hope you will give her a warm welcome. Sophia will be replying to your comments and questions. Enjoy!
Welcome, today on Nonna’s Corner I am excited to share three fun Random House Children’s Books. Sophia and I had a grand time reading 101 Reasons Why I’m Not Taking a Bath, Who’s the Grossest of Them All and This Is My Dollhouse. Grab a cup of pumpkin spice coffee and enjoy!
A Scot in the Dark by Sarah MacLean is the second novel in her Scandal & Scoundrel series. Filled with banter and snark McLean delivered a delicious romp.
Action-packed, with heat, heart and suspense Shadow Falling was addictive. Shadow Falling by Rebecca Zanetti is the second book in the Scorpius Syndrome series a post-apocalyptic romantic suspense that has edge of your seat suspense, hot alphas and a romance to curl your toes. I thoroughly enjoy time spent with these characters.
Her Darkest Nightmare by Brenda Novak is the first novel in the Evelyn Talbot Chronicles. Novak delivers a romantic suspense filled with danger set against the backdrop of Hilltop Alaska a town outside of Anchorage. Suspense, murder and a little heat made Her Darkest Nightmare a page-turner.
