Review: Kiss My Boots (Coming Home #2) by Harper Sloan
Kiss my Boots - Harper Sloan

 

 

 

 

In this second of the sultry, Western-set Coming Home series from New York Times bestselling author Harper Sloan, Quinn Davis might finally have a shot at her own happily-ever-after—but will she let love in, or will she tell it to go ahead and kiss her boots?

Quinn Davis prefers to live her life quietly. She’s the stereotypical tomboy with two overprotective big brothers who have always been there to protect her, especially from devilishly handsome cowboys with silver tongues. That is, until Tate Montgomery comes riding into town. Their first meeting, however, is far from something out of a fairy tale and only further convinces Quinn that men aren’t worth her time.

The only place Tate Montgomery ever truly felt at home growing up was during the long, sweltering summer months he spent at his Gram and Paw’s farm in Pine Oak, Texas. Now, Tate has returned to his childhood sanctuary seeking a fresh start—but if he’s being entirely honest, he’s not just back for the wranglers and Stetsons. During those summers, Quinn was a friend-turned-young-love who Tate lost when life threw him a curveball and he cut all ties to his past; but all it takes is one glance at the raven-haired beauty he did his best to forget for him to realize just how much he’s been missing….

 

 

 

 

This is the second book in the Coming Home series but it can be easily read as a standalone. But it helps to have read the first book to know all the people we meet along the way.

I liked Quinn in book one and was really looking forward to read her book.  And it did not disappoint. I like Quinn now even. She is not your typical, while she is still very girlie she also is very much a tomboy. She is a bada$$ and still super soft and lovely, Also very funny and knows what she wants.

Tate, I thought it would take me a while to like him but NO. I liked him right away. I lobed that we get his story fairly early and that he just straight out tells everyone what was happening and what he wants for his future.  

I liked them separate and I liked them together ever more. I liked that they started out slow again.  It was everything I love, funny, sweet and yet sexy smexy hot with a hint of obstacle to overcome.

I also enjoyed that we still get to see the last couple Leigh and Mav and how they are doing without taking over this book. Of course we get some of Jana’s humor in this book as well and it was great. The tiny insight into Mark and Janie was also great.

I cannot wait to read the last and final book and see Clay getting his HEA.

Oh and the songs, Harper Sloan adds in the beginning to each chapter make a great playlist matching the chapters and the book.

I highly enjoyed this book and rate it a full 5 ★

This House is a Home: A story of coal mining, family and the Sengers of Stiritz - Philip Nork

This House is a Home by Phil Nork
Enriching and heartwarming story!
Last class assignment for the year and Pete has to find out about his ancestors and what better way then to go visit and talk to them.
Family, uncles and grandparents load up the car and lead to southern IL where other parts of the family live. Treasure the history of this one family and how it's portrayed to those of todays age.
Love how the author also explains what mining terms mean and how they were done.
Mining accidents and telling the time by the sun so much to this book.
Loved hearing how they use everything growing on the land.
Received this review copy from the author and this is my honest opinion.

2/5 "Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children"
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children - Ransom Riggs

Jacob’s grandfather use to spin some stories about his own World War Two childhood, some pretty strange ones…stories about the boy who could lift rocks with one hand and the girl who could fly. As he turns into a teenager, Jacob realises they couldn’t have been true. Could they?

An entertaining read from Ransom, based on some odd Victorian photographs he’s collected over the years, the basis of which pull the story along and illustrate it nicely. Some of the pictures are very odd and disquieting. Of particular note is a dentist with no pupils or irises, and the worlds creepiest Santa. I even bought the paperback so I could see the pictures better than on my Kindle. It’s a nice novelty for a story to see the frame it’s draped on, to see the process of turning pictures into a story.

There’s nothing wrong with Ransom’s characters, and his writing style is easy on the eye, flowing along nicely. The descriptions of the Welsh island where Jacob finds himself are all nicely done as well, lending a solid and realistic feel to everything. I would have probably commented more on the bi-lingual nature of Wales, but that’s just a minor point.

So why only two stars? The problem for me was that the story was remarkably…forgettable. I finished this three days ago, and I had to check the book to look up the name of the main character before I started this review.

Nobody stuck with me; I have no urge to see where the next two books are going, where the lives of the characters are taking them next. If you asked me to name Jacob's love interest or his fathers name, I couldn’t do it.
