I purchased Christmas at Timberwoods by Fern Michaels, as it was the December, book of the month selection for a Goodreads group. It is a romantic suspense novel, with events that take place in the days before Christmas. The central story involves a young woman who suffers from visions and her attempts to stop a horrific event from occurring. The tale unfolds as Michaels changes points of views between key characters.
My friend Dave, recommended Jacob T. Marley to me and I quickly added it to my wish-list. Then, a Goodreads group that I belong to chose it as their December Book of the Month. This was all the excuse I needed; so I purchased the eBook version of it. I am a huge fan of Dickens and was immediately intrigued by the synopsis. I am happy to report that this book was simply delightful. Bennett does a remarkable job of emanating Dickens and offers us a fresh tale about Scrooge’s partner Marley
As with any of Robyn Carr’s books I pre-ordered Bring Me Home for Christmas. The Virgin River series is one of my all time favorites. I have a fondness for it that can best be described as, “that warm fuzzy feeling you get when you slip into your favorite comfy jeans and snuggle up to the one you love on a cold lazy Sunday afternoon.” If Virgin Rivers was a real place, I would move there. The scenic beauty and the caring families who reside here have found a little slice of heaven on Earth.
Kiss of Midnight is the first in the Midnight Breed Series by Lara Adrian. This book is currently featured as the book of the month for the Paranormal and Urban Fantasy group on Goodreads. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this fast paced novel. Adrian delivers a steamy, suspenseful paranormal romance that will leave you wanting more.
The Next Always by bestselling author Nora Roberts is the first novel in a brand new trilogy. I have been reading Roberts’s books since I was a teen and have come to love her characters, romances and writing style. This enchanting tale has romance, suspense and a ghost.
Night Strangers is a psychological thriller with paranormal elements. It will have you turning the pages to discover the secrets of a small town in New Hampshire. Bohjalian’s tale is reminiscent of Stephen King and the Stand. I chose to read this over Halloween weekend and it was quite a thrill. The ending to this novel will simply blow you away.
Bride of the Night is a paranormal romance at its heart. Heather Graham has woven historical events, people and places from the Civil War into this tale. Graham is so skilled at using just enough references to historical events that it gives an authenticity to the tale
