Book Review: Real Men Knit by Kwana Jackson

Real Men Knit is the first book I’ve read by Kwana Jackson, who also writes romances under the name of K.M Jackson. I definitely need to get my hands on her Sugar Lake series, as it sounds like it is right up my alley as well. If you’re a fan of contemporary romance, this slow [Read On]

Books to Help Understand Anti-Racism and Race

Wanting to be a better white ally means learning about systemic racism. To do that, we need to dig a little deeper into U.S. history, because we’re simply not taught it fully in school, at least in a way that we understand the nuances and all that shaped how we ended up where we all [Read On]

Book Review: Not Like The Movies by Kerry Winfrey

If you are looking for a book to escape into, Kerry Winfrey’s fun, frustrating, and delightful novel Not Like The Movies is exactly what you need right now.

Book Review: The Sweeney Sisters by Lian Dolan

I adored Lian Dolan’s first two books. They were smart, funny, light, and warm – and the kind you want to reread. When I saw that she had a new book out, I jumped on the chance to read it. The Sweeney Sisters was everything I’d hoped for, with the strong character development I appreciate [Read On]

The Engineer’s Wife by Tracey Enerson Wood

Today’s book recommendation is perfect for fans of historical fiction based on real-life history or characters.

I generally have a knee jerk reaction any time a book publisher provides a description that reads “A charming page-turner” or “the feel-good book of the year”. It tends to set up some pretty high expectations that quite often aren’t met. However, in the case of The Wish List (or as my cover reads: The [Read On]

Book Review: Been There, Married That by Gigi Levangie

If you’re looking for a fun, totally over-the-top beach read that is an outlandish take on Hollywood life, Gigi Levangie’s book Been There, Married That is for you. While it had a few bumps at the start, I could easily overlook it for the snark and the fun. Many thanks to NetGalley for providing me [Read On]

Book Review: The Return by Rachel Harrison

I took a break from all the historical fiction I’ve been reading and grabbed an ARC (thank you NetGalley) of Rachel Harrison’s upcoming release titled The Return. This was one seriously creepy work of horror. Read on to see why this one had me rethinking some upcoming hotel choices. Some links in this post are [Read On]

Book Review: The Hollows by Jess Montgomery

I fell in love with an earlier fiction book written by author Jess Montgomery under her given name. So of course, when I learned she’d be writing historical fiction under this, her pen name, I promptly ordered the book. That book was The Widows (and fantastic). The Hollows is the second book in her new [Read On]

Five Christmas Romances to Curl Up with this December

Confession: I find it difficult to get into Christmas novels when it’s (1) not even Thanksgiving and (2) it’s still 97º here in Texas. I was naughty. I waited until closer to Thanksgiving to begin to read these five lovely, uplifting Christmas romances and then share them with YOU in December, when you’re REALLY in [Read On]
