Really!
The Guests on South Battery (Tradd Street) - Karen White

I listed to the audio version of this book and the narrator's voice is so wrong for today's 40 year old Charlestonian.  Lose the old Southern drawl.  Your story is set in today and I have not come across one native 40 year old white woman that talks this way naturally.  The dialect was okay for Melanie's mother, but for her...

 

So now that I have my dislike for the narrator's delivery, let's talk about this storyline. It was boring and predictable.  Not only does the author deliver one predictable outcome.  She deals three of them back to back.  Good Grief.

 

I think I am done with this series and hopefully Karen White is also unless she's prepared to turn it up a notch.

Good story but could have used more emotion.
Twice Burned - Karen White

I enjoyed the story but felt it was a bit rushed. I did not get a true feel for the emotions between Aubrey, Julian, and Lucas. I would have liked more connection other than the sex, which was steamy. Julian and Lucas had their own relationship and reasons for holding back. Aubrey's reasons for not believing in love were not fully explained. All around her was lasting love, but she did not believe in it. Lucas and Julian were fun and sexy.

I received a copy of this story through Booksprout, and this is my unsolicited review.

Dreams of Falling - Karen White

Family secrets and drama are something every family experiences.   Larkin ran from her hometown and family to escape all that but when she is pulled back due to her mother being in the hospital she starts to realize that her memories may not be quite so spot on.     What she thinks she remembers may not be the entire truth, there might be more to her family that she was never aware of, and there are friendships she left behind that might have more to tell.   I loved that the friends she ran from still had open arms welcoming her home as if she had never left.     The family that she left doesn’t push her to stay just work on reminding her what she was missing and why she shouldn’t leave again.   

 

Dreams of Falling is a story rich with family history.   The history starts with Margaret, CeeCee, and Bitty and their amazing friendship.   Add Ivy, Margaret’s daughter, to that history a few years later and the story just gets more interesting.     Then Ivy has a daughter, Larkin, and you have three generations of wonderful, strong, and smart women.    The thing with history is that there are secrets kept, hidden, or needing to be forgotten.   

 

I am a Karen White fan and recommend this wonderful Southern fiction story.

Dreams of Falling - Karen White

This is my third book by this author and I am so happy to say that they have each touched me and thoroughly entertained me.

I loved this saga of three generations of Darlington women and their very close friends. A small town epic centered around the rich Darlington's, whose family have lived in Carrowmore (?) for over 200 years. While the town may be small, the lies, deceit and secrets are huge.

I could not tear myself away from this beautifully written sad story and with the thrill of a mystery fire - I was in reader heaven!

Thanks to Penguin Random House First to Read program for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

Rescue My Heart
Rescue My Heart - Jill Shalvis,Karen White

 
Animal Magnetism, Book 3

I Picked Up This Book Because: Continue the series.

The Characters:

Holly Reidt:
Adam Connelly:
Jade Bennett, Dell Connelly

The Story:

I love the residents of Sunshine. I won’t say I was thrilled with this couple. Their back and forth wishy washiness got rather tiring however I do think they are well suited.
