a nice book, a good book.
Finnegan's Promise - Carol Lynne
Calder Finnegan goes home to his father's pub to help while Sean goes on holiday to Ireland. But Sean is ill and he keeps that from Fin. Bar man Mick knows, but is sworn to secrecy by Sean. As Mick and Fin grow closer, Mick is torn between his growing love for Fin, and his utmost respect for Sean. When Fin finds out, he is devastated that he can't have the relationship with his father he always wanted. Finding it hard to word what I want to say about this book, I did mostly enjoy it, but it didn't blow me away. It is well written, from both Mick and Fin's point of view and I didn't spot any editing or spelling errors. It was just a nice book! I'm sorry, I really am, that i can't find a better word for it. It passed a plane trip quite . . . .nicely! I think more could have been made of Fin coming out to his football teammates, because that doesn't happen here and I think it should have. I'm not usually one for professions of love so very early on, but it felt right here. Given they knew this time together was limited, they went all in. I've read one other book by Lynne and I said the heat level in that book was low. But here, it seems to have gone to the opposite extreme. Oh, don't get me wrong, I'm all for high heat level books, IF it fits in the story. But I think the story suffered a bit here. So, for a nice easy read, 3 stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

Review – Soul Mate by Anna Santos @AnneSaint90 @SDSXXTours
Soul-Mate (The Immortal Love Series) (Vo... Soul-Mate (The Immortal Love Series) (Volume 1) - Anna Santos
Soul-Mate
The Immortal Love Series Book 1
by Anna Santos
Genre: Paranormal Romance, Urban Fantasy
.
MY REVIEW
.P
I saw the blurb for Soul-Mate and it made me want to know Annabelle’s story. It’s not often I come across a hybrid supernatural and I was curious which would win out, the were or the vampire.
.
The whole town is filled with weres, vampires, and hybrids. Everyone knows they don’t mix, but here they carry on daily life as if they are humans, so don’t forget that they have hidden abilities when you visit.
.
We will have insta-love and I can live with that in the supernatural world. As soon as Shane sets eyes on her, gets a sniff, he knows Annabelle is his Soul-Mate. Not so with her.
.
The erotic, jump in the sack, first part of the book bored me. I never had a chance to connect to the characters before hand…I rarely do this, but I started skimming the pages, wanting to get to the heart of the story. And I found it.
.
Annabelle is a hunter. I guess you could say her and Shane, a werewolf sheriff, have some things in common. They are both out to get the bad guy.
.
We read from two perspectives, his and hers. I like seeing the story that way and Anna Santos did a great job with it.
.
It was hilarious, picturing Shane, spying on Annabelle from a tree, nekkid. LOL
.
I am really interested in Annabelle and Jessica’s friendship. I think there is more to the story than first meets the eye.  Annabelle is the serious one and Jessica is happy-go-lucky, love ’em and leave ’em. I really want to know more about Jessica…
.
The slow ‘burning’ start soon gave way to some action, and once it got going, I couldn’t stop. I feel asleep with the Kindle on my lap with just 17% to go. That is the first time that has happened to me in so long I can’t remember. So…stick with it.
.
If I did half stars, it would get 3 1/2, so I am having a difficult time rating this. So…check it out for yourself, if you like hot and sexy, erotic, paranormal reads.
.
I voluntarily reviewed a copy of Soul Mate by Anna Santos

Christmas In July – Trimmed With Murder by Sally Goldenbaum @sallygoldenbaum
Trimmed with Murder: A Seaside Knitters Mystery - Sally Goldenbaum

Welcome to Christmas in July.

 

Today I will be sharing Trimmed With Murder, Seaside Knitters Mystery #10, by Sally Goldenbaum.

 

Trimmed With Murder (Seaside Knitters Mystery, #10)

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Seaside Harbor is home of the fighting Cool Cods.

 

Just knowing that makes makes me think Trimmed With Murder will be a fun cozy mystery to curl up with on a cold winter’s night…or on the sunny beach and celebrate Christmas in July.

 

It all starts when Charlie picks Izzy up on the side of the road. Neither one of them wanted to be here, because we all know, in a small town there are no secrets.

 

Most of the characters are warm and giving…once you get to know them, but there are some with secrets to hide and will cross the line to keep them buried.

 

I feel bad for Charlie and wonder about the missing years in his life. Where has he been and why is he so different from the person they knew before?

 

And the murderer…

 

I know who I feel it could be, but there is also a deeper mystery to be solved…

 

The Knitting Club knows everyone and everything happening in town, so they figure they should be the ones to find the answers and put the town’s fears to rest, so they began to “walk the road.”  I love when a group of small town ladies get it in their heads to investigate a murder.  Some times it can be fun, other times…

 

I love stories located by the seaside. They lend an extra element to the story that makes me want to walk along the shore with this “tight knit” group of friends who care about their town and the people in it.

 

Trimmed With Murder by Sally Goldenbaum shows us that you can go home again.

 

Sally Goldenbaum has also included knitting instructions for a sailboat ornament and a recipe for pork tenderloin in Trimmed With Murder

not for me.
The Sand Dweller - Molly Neely
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. This review will be short, and for that I'm sorry. But I am struggling to word what I need to say about this book. I'm not entirely sure what I think, to be honest, about this book. There is a lot of flipping between the past and present, and while each change is headed, there is much missing from each flip. I felt that more could have been made of the NOW, rather than the past. It's well written from a host of different points of view, and I did like that. I didn't spot any spelling or editing errors. I just....*insert sigh*... don't see what the whole point of the story was. It's been left opened ended, maybe for another book, I don't know, it just....*insert ARGH!!!!!* ....I can't word it. I gave it three stars, because we do get to here from everyone, and I did finish it. 3 stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

Giveaway & Review – Seeds of Eden by A P Watson @apwatsonauthor @XpressoReads
Seeds of Eden - Richard A. Watson

Seeds of Eden by A P Watts has an awesome cover, which made the book jump out at me. I have seen other covers by this designer and she does a fabulous job.

 

Cover by Regina Wamba with MaeIDesign and Photography

 

Seeds of Eden
A.P. Watson
(The Concilium, #1)
Publication date: January 25th 2017
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal, Romance

 

MY REVIEW

 

I will admit I love YA stories, even though sometimes they can fall a little flat in the excitement department. Seeds of Eden by A P Watson is one of those stories, but the opening pages did grab me and make me want to know Evey’s story. I wanted to know what’s going on, what will happen next.

 

I love storylines like Seeds of Eden. Time travel? Reincarnation?

Evey’s light in the darkness. More than a symbol of love and hope.

 

Evey is a regular teenage girl in her senior year, with all the normal hopes and desires. She loves history and I wonder…

 

I love her best friend, Caroline, especially when she says things like…

 

“It’s like I always say, we’re best friends because we hate all the same people.”

 

Seeds of Eden is a romance, a love story that is eternal…Infinite.

It is YA all the way. I would have liked more depth…Her feelings for her situation, realizing who she really is and the fact that someone would die to protect her were glossed over. I wanted more details.

 

 

I liked the story, but it is repetitious and drags sometimes. I kept waiting for something to happen, instead of just hem hawing her way through the relationship with Conrad. Yes, no, yes, no…

 

Seeds of Eden does not stand alone and I do want to read the rest of their story. I want to see how everything pans out for them in this trilogy and for that reason I do recommend the series.
