I am always on the lookout for a good criminal thriller and It Takes One by Kate Kessler promised to deliver thrills, secrets and murder. It Takes One offered an interesting protagonist, an intriguing case and shed light on the “ins and outs” of small-town mentality. The first novel in the Audrey Harte series, I look forward to more cases and adventures with this snarky, strong woman.
What We Find by Robyn Carr is the first novel in the Sullivan’s Crossing series. Carr delivered a beautiful novel about love, family, loss and finding one’s self. Set against the trails of Colorado I quickly became wrapped up in the characters. What We Find had characters and banter that reminded me of early Virgin River books.
Psst…. Until Nobody But Me, I had never read a Jill Shalvis book. *blinks* I know crazy right. Peeps kept telling me how wonderful her books were. So yes, I jumped in on book three of the Cedar Ridge books. Sometimes you just have to take the plunge. Nobody But You was a delicious book to try with swoon-worthy characters are just the right amount of heat.
Her Forever Hero by Melody Anne is the third book in her Unexpected Heroes series. I read book one but someone missed book two but decided to jump ahead and read this since it worked for Take Control and fulfilled my Xoxpert read for March. .Her Forever Hero delivered a second chance romance filled with suspense, growing pains, and growth.
Snowbound at Christmas by Debbie Mason is the fifth book in the Christmas, Colorado series but do not let that stop you from picking it up. I have not read the earlier novels and Mason tells a suspenseful, romantic tale with colorful characters set against the Colorado snow-filled countryside.
Wildest Dream is the ninth novel in the Thunder Point series by Robyn Carr and sadly my least favorite. I have enjoyed getting to know the folks in this Oregon seaside community and will miss them. While this books wraps up threads and gives us updates on townsfolk we also get to see Lin Su Simmons and her son Charlie find their own little slice of happy.
Welcome to Coffee Pot Reviews! These are short and sweet reviews done in the length of time it takes my coffee pot to brew! I have the first two books in the Brightwater series by Lia Riley to share today. Last First Kiss & Right Wrong Guy are set in Brightwater, California a rural farm community on the brink of change. If you like small-town, contemporary romances with a touch of heat and a whole lot of sweet stick around. Grab a cup of iced mocha coffee and enjoy…..
This Heart of Mine by Brenda Novak is the eighth book in her Whiskey Creek series. I love small-town romances and I have always wanted to try one her novels. I was delighted that this worked as a standalone and was even more excited to meet Phoenix Fuller. An unusual heroine and a second chance romance gave me all the feels.
First Time in Forever is the first book in Sarah Morgan’s new Puffin Island series and I fell in love with the characters and island folks. I am packing my bags folks and hope you decide to come with me. The series will center on Emily, Skylar and Brittany. They are friends who met in college and have remained friends who support each other. Each book will focus on one of them and it all takes place on Puffin Island.
At Wolf Ranch by Jennifer Ryan is the first in her Montana Men series. It has so many elements I love from the wide-open spaces to hot, strong, cowboys who just happen to be brothers. Catch me before I swoon! Ryan weaved suspense, a slow-burning romance and did it all in big sky country. I inhaled At Wolf Ranch and cannot wait for more.
