A Lancaster County Christmas, Suzanne Woods Fisher
A Lancaster County Christmas - Suzanne Woods Fisher

I enjoyed this Clean Romance/Amish story. I received this as a gift and voluntarily chose to review it. I've given it a 4.5* rating. I thought this very interesting with it's many pro's and con's of several topics. It is uplifting and suspenseful at the same time. Add a child and a touch of humor. What a great mix.I only wish I had a little more time to read this sooner.

The Christmas Confection, Shanna Hatfield
The Christmas Confection (Hardman Holida... The Christmas Confection (Hardman Holidays) (Volume 6) - Shanna Hatfield

I really enjoyed this clean Historical Holiday Romance. I received this as a gift and I voluntarily chose to review it. I've given it a 5* rating. I really liked this couple.I liked how they sort of danced around each other. A couple steps together, then another apart. There were a lot of fun characters in this story, as well as some bad guys. it really left me with a good feeling, and was a interesting Christmas read.

Review: Romancing the Scot (The Pennington Family #1) by May McGoldrick
Romancing the Scot (The Pennington Family) - May McGoldrick

The story wasn’t bad but I had a few issues that didn’t let me fully enjoy this story.
It was a good romance story, not to mention the suspense sub-plot indeed kept me turning the pages. The thing is, I think there were too many things this book could have done without and it still would have been a good story. 
It all started with lots of heart-pumping action. Someone murdered Grace’s father and now she’s trying to escape the same fate. Miraculously, she ends up in the land of a well-placed family that takes her as one of their own. After that initial encounter and Grace’s convalescence, the pace starts slowing down. 

The characters were charismatic and complex. Hugh was smart and charming; stern when needed yet wicked when he wanted to be. Grace was also smart with the gift of a super memory, although it took forever to get to why it was so important she had such a gift. Jo, Hugh’s sister had a tragic past, something that I also think we spend too much time on. I think they were setting ground for future books but again, I think it was not needed. The writing was impeccable and the historical accuracy was on point. The problem with that was that we spent too much time reading about history and not enough time with the main characters as people. Even the suspense that was so good at the start ends up being kind of a let down because I felt some things about Grace’s father were more guesswork than actual answers. 

** I received this book at no cost to me via Netgalley and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher.***

Reach For Your Dream – Chasing Fireflies by Taylor Dean @taylordeanbooks
Chasing Fireflies - Taylor Dean

There are two songs that jumped out at me as I read Chasing Fireflies by Taylor Dean. I opted to use the Pina Colada song, because I love it and it makes me feel good to sing along to it. You can hear it here.


Chasing Fireflies (Power of the Matchmaker)

Goodreads  /  Amazon US  /  Amazon UK  /  Amazon CA




I have been a huge fan of Taylor Dean’s for some time now, so I am excited to check out another one of her novels, Chasing Fireflies.


Her sisters act like mothers as they do their best to dissuade Savannah from going to China for four months, but she knew HE was there and she had to find him, her true love. She’ll be OK, she has her magic cloak and that makes her invisible.


Emotions bubble to the surface early as I read of the loss of her parents. Can someone die of a broken heart?


OK Taylor, Ive got my tissues by my side, so let’s go find Paul, come hell or high water.


She’s shy, but that doesn’t mean she not observant, taking in everything around her,a spectator of others.


“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”  What a great quote.


I found it easy to relate to her difficulty with social situations and turbulence. I am a huge fan of my own company and God forbid I end up on a plane with turbulence.


Just like the fireflies my sisters and I  tried to catch on the warm summer evenings of our youth, the dream seems beyond my grasp.


I could follow her life long dream and head to China but that elevator scene…having a hard time getting there. Stopped me in my tracks. Taylor Dean is a must read author for me, and I do love a happy ever after, but this scene struck me so wrong…I’ll read on and see if she wins me over. I know..it’s fiction…just have to go with it.


Taylor Dean is very good with sweet, clean, innocent romance and she is sure to include the despair she feels when her dream is crushed. Ah, the sweet agony of youth and its naivety. She is so different from me but I do remember my broken heart and the soul crushing sorrow…that in hindsight seemed to end very quickly. Did more time pass than I thought?


I don’t mind predictable,the familiar. It can be warm, cozy and comfortable. I didn’t get into this one as much as I normally do her stories. They usually wrap me up in emotions and require tissues. Chasing Fireflies had its moments and is well worth the read.


Chasing Fireflies is one of a series of stand alone novels connect to The Matchmaker.


I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Chasing Fireflies by Taylor Dean.

Decker and Joy: North Pole Unlimited, Elle Rush
Decker and Joy: North Pole Unlimited 1 -... Decker and Joy: North Pole Unlimited 1 - Elle Rush

I really enjoyed this fantasy romance. I voluntarily chose to review it. I really liked these 2 characters. Add kittens and strange things going on, it turns into a fun and moving story. A fun holiday read for the young and old alike. It's not real long either, so great for those short opportunities in our holiday season. I gave it a 5* rating. It really made me laugh.
