A Lesson in Pride

I became hooked on Jennifer Connors “Lesson” series a couple of years ago. The main character is Ginny, who, upon returning from a not-so-wonderful vacation is in a car accident and wakes in a different time and in the form of another person.

This book has been lingering on my TBR list for a couple of years now, and I finally picked it up to read in January. I am not a big fan of the paranormal books–I know some readers just love the Vampire stories–so this book was just “okay” for me. That being said, the ending […]

Almost Dead

I have had this book on my TBR list ever since finishing Jackson’s previous book in this series, IF SHE ONLY KNEW. ALMOST DEAD follows Cissy Cahill, now grown from the teenager we met in the previous novel, as she learns her mother has escaped from prison. Very well written and a very surprising twist […]

Killjoy

I have always loved Julie Garwood’s historical romance novels. Last year I picked up one of her contemporary romances in the Buchanan-Renard series. I enjoyed the book so much I added the remaining books in this series to my To Be Read list. Killjoy is the third book in the series and true to Garwood […]
