Helen Fox gives readers of all ages a delightful tale of cute animals and magic. George the Orphan Crow and the Creatures of Blossom Valley is a bit of a mouthful. But the story is imaginative and entertaining. I loved every character, even the baddies.
A Seaside Summer is a delightful collection of three historical romances that take place near the sea. Each one is amazing and the perfect length for a quick afternoon read. Josi S. Kilpack, Martha Keyes, and Heather B. Moore are gifted storytellers. Each story is unique, yet all hit the right spot in your heart.
Nancy Campbell Allen tells a daring story of love, life, and murder in her newest novel. The Matchmaker’s Lonely Heart contains strong female characters that make you fall in love with them. Plus, there is danger and intrigue around every corner. What’s not to love?
Claire Huston hit me right in the feels with her first book last summer, and now she’s done it again with Elle’s A to Z of Love. Claire has some sort of magic hidden in her pen because her novels make me laugh, sigh, and cry. Her contemporary romances are fantastic.
The Merchant and the Rogue is a delightful novel full of intrigue and excitement. Sarah Eden penned an incredible book here. Each character has special qualities that make them loveable yet dangerous.
The Other Side of the Whale Road turns every page into magic. K.A. Hayton tells a story that has so many repercussions for many different people. It is like a trickle-down effect where one person makes a mistake that filters down until the cycle ends. But, this novel does that and much more with the fantasy element included.
The Meeting Point by Olivia Lara is not your average rom-com. The story is completely original. Yet has those silly misunderstandings that all romance novels have. But, this book didn’t only meet expectations but blasted all the way through to phenomenal.
The Barrister and the Letter of Marque is an exceptional Sherlock Holmes-esque mystery. It will enthrall readers from every walk of life. Todd M. Johnson nails it with his first foray into historical mystery. The intrigue and suspense leave readers begging for more.
Amanda Vink gives readers a look into an unknown life with her novel Marjorie Hart and the Tree of Life. Amanda takes a well-known myth and creates an incredible story.
Tessa Buckley’s newest novel, Haunted, is a delightful mystery for middle-grade students. This book is the second in the Eye Spy series. Tessa’s story had me all in a dither. I kept guessing who the culprit was yet didn’t figure it out until close to the end. My hunches failed me with this one.
