REVIEW BY AMY - Hearts Are Like Balloons by Candace Robinson
Hearts Are Like Balloons - Candace Robinson
May Falkner’s past two years have been a rough road. When her father suddenly passes away, May needs to find a job to help out her mom and regain some control over her life. Working at the bookstore helps her heal, laugh, and hope again. It also leads her to cross paths with Nico Evitts, who begins as just a co-worker, but becomes so much more

When it all becomes perfect, because there is no perfect, life steps in to prove once again that it all can crash down harder than before. This is a story about finding yourself, love, and the things in life that are still here.

Hearts are like balloons. Sometimes they inflate… Sometimes they deflate…

 

 

@literarydust, @Mommy_Amers, #Contemporary, #Romance, 4 out of 5 (very good)

A WINTER SCANDAL by Candace Camp
A Winter Scandal - Candace Camp

A baby is found in the manger in the church where Thea's brother is vicar. She goes after the man she thinks is the baby's father who turns out is not but she's involved in the mystery of who left the baby and why. As she gets to know Lord Morecombe she throws conventions to the wind as does he. They may both think they are focused on the baby but, as anyone with a pair of eyes sees, they are more interested in each other. The baby brings out sides to them that they would never have discovered by following convention.

I liked this story. I liked Thea and Gabriel. They make a good couple. She does not let him mow her over and he discovers there is more to a woman than companionship in bed. The mystery is good as Gabriel must unravel the past and realize his mistakes. I plan on reading the rest of the series.

Perfect finale
Bears of Burden: MATT - Candace Ayers Bears of Burden: MATT - Candace Ayers

Matt finally gets his mate! I've grown attached to the characters in this series and while seeing it end is a bit melancholy, it couldn't have ended on a better note. Matt's past has him living in shadows when Cannon comes along to muck up his orderly life, and he does it splendidly. There's lots of angst as Matt comes to terms with who he is and who he's destined to be with, but I loved every single word.

(Backfiring as a way to clean up some reading lists because I stupidly keep glancing at the "also enjoyed" and adding more to the TBR but working to remind me I wanted to read something or continue some series.)

Lovers and Strangers (The Hollywood Nights Series, Book 1) by Candace Schuler 99 cents
Lovers and Strangers - Candace Schuler

by Candace Schuler

 

World-weary and heart-sore, Jack Shannon has returned to his old stomping grounds in LA and the Wilshire Arms Apartments to make one last-ditch effort to lay the ghost of his long-dead brother to rest. There he meets sweet, angelic Faith McCray.

Faith is everything Jack wants—and everything he's convinced he doesn't deserve.

But Faith isn't as guileless as she seems, and she's far stronger than anyone gives her credit for. Having broken free from overly-strict upbringing and a sin that's not her own, Faith has arrived in LA with her sights set on finally doing what's right for her—and what's right is Jack.
