The Deception of the Emerald Ring By Lauren Willig $1.99
The Deception of the Emerald Ring - Lauren Willig

Harvard grad student Eloise Kelly has gotten into quite a bit of trouble since she started spying on the Pink Carnation and the Black Tulip-two of the deadliest spies to saunter the streets of nineteenth-century England and France. 

Not only has she unearthed secrets that will rearrange history, she's dallied with Colin Selwick and sought out a romantic adventure all her own. Little does she know that she's about to uncover another fierce heroine running headlong into history...

In June 1803, Letty Alsworthy attempts to prevent her sister’s midnight elopement—only to be accidentally whisked away herself. The scandal forces her into a hasty marriage with Geoffrey Pinchingdale-Snipe, who then decamps immediately to help the Pink Carnation quash a ring of Irish rebels led by the Black Tulip. Not to be outdone, Letty steals away to the Emerald Isle herself, ready to learn a thing or two about espionage—and never imagining she might learn a few things about love along the way.

Emerald Coast/Anita Hughes
Emerald Coast: A Novel - Anita Hughes Emerald Coast: A Novel - Anita Hughes

Set on the glamorous Italian island, Anita Hughes's Emerald Coast is a touching and humorous story about marriage and the difficulty of finding love and happiness at the same time.

Lily Bristol arrives at a luxurious resort in Sardinia for the grand opening of her newest home furnishing store on the Emerald Coast. She’s a successful business woman with an international chain of stores from San Francisco to Milan. Thirty-two and newly divorced, she’s ready to handle things on her own. At least until her private butler, Enzo, escorts her to a beautiful suite where she notices a suspiciously familiar pair of men’s slippers and shaving kit.

Lily is horrified. Her ex-husband Oliver moved out of their restored Connecticut farmhouse six months ago, but they booked this trip when they were trying to save their marriage and never cancelled the reservation. Oliver, a food critic for the New York Times, is here covering Sardinia’s hottest new restaurant. The only other available room is the adjoining suite; and worse, Oliver isn’t alone. He’s brought a twenty-something named Angela with him.

Lily is determined to make do and enlists Enzo to find her a suitable man. But it’s not as easy to find new love as they both expected. When Lily and Oliver find themselves alone on a very important night, they turn to each other. Sparks begin to fly, but can they be together without breaking each other’s hearts?

 

This had some fun twists of romance to it, and definitely had a love story I wanted to support. I actually really enjoyed the setting in that I love hearing about rich people things and hating on what they do. The premise, also, was delicious--what a terrifically awful situation!

 

The characters could have come from any novel and I was never left wondering how the ending would ultimately play our, yet none the less, this was enjoyable. This isn't the most poignant, but was a lovely beach read.

 

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Adult Reading
Their Emerald (The Jeweled Ladies Book 2) - Maggie Chase

Their Emerald is my first book by Maggie Chase, so I didn't know what to expect.  This is a menage book, so it may not be everyone's choice of reading material.  There is menage sex in this story, also m/m sexy bits.  That being said, the story is outstanding.  Their Emerald is well-written.  The characters are amazing.  The story line has plenty of drama and balances out the sex scenes.  I enjoyed this book and would happily read more from Maggie Chase in the future.  Their Emerald is book 2 of The Jeweled Ladies Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

THE BEAST'S DESIRE by Emerald Ice
The Beast's Desire - Emerald Ice
  A different take on Beauty and the Beast. I enjoyed it. I was surprised by the "Beast." I liked how instinctive protecting each other was for them. The story held my interest. I wanted to know more of this community.

#26 - The Emerald City of Oz by L. Frank Baum
The Emerald City of Oz - L. Frank Baum

Dorothy’s Aunt and Uncle are in trouble at the farm. They do not have enough money to pay everything and they might be expulsed. Dorothy says to them they could go and live in Oz with her and Ozma agrees to that. So, once again, we found ourselves in the beautiful Land of Oz where Dorothy is going to live some great adventures and meet some new people.

Like every time I read an Oz story, I’m amazed at how funny it is. This seems like it was the last story about Oz but I know there are many others, so I am not sure about what happened here, I guess I will see when I read the others.

I had a lot of fun reading this book and I think Oz is one of the greatest story ever, I’m totally fond of this world.
