For the Love of a Widow: A Regency Novella by Christina McKnight
For The Love Of A Widow: Regency Novella - Christina McKnight

 

When I grow up I want to be a Christina McKnight heroine. A rather ridiculous statement, I know, but in reality it makes sense. Ms. McKnight centers her stories around women with strength of character. They are fighters, not victims. They lead with heart but have the smarts to back it up and they always manage to land on their feet and in the arms of their perfect match. Of course life is not a fairytale, but with stories like For the Love of a Widow, characters like Daniel and Lettie, keep the fantasy alive in a realistic kind of way.

Holiday Spice (The Shaughnessy Brothers) by Samantha Chase
Holiday Spice (The Shaughnessy Brothers Book 6) - Samantha Chase

 

A little holiday magic to experience all year round. That's the best description for Holiday Spice. Every Shaughnessy has had their shining moment and taken a piece of my heart along the way, but Darcy sealed the deal. This time, Ms. Chase went for broke and laid claim to my heart in it's entirety. Darcy, the lone girl in a sea of men has grown into a lovely woman with a beautiful caring soul, but she still has wounds. Ben is a loner. He eats, breathes and sleeps woodcarving. When a cry for help leaves him stranded with an optimistic beauty, this lone wolf, may just find his soulmate. With an open heart and arms wide open, Ms. Chase ends her Shaughnessy series with a romance that has classic written all over it.

Reading progress update: I've read 56%.
To Wager Her Heart (A Belle Meade Plantation Novel) - Tamera Alexander

Loving it! There are multiple storylines with each character that keeps it interesting. There's the town itself and its people, the railroad, a horrible accident and freed blacks trying to educate at Fisk University.

The Stolen Marriage
The Stolen Marriage - Diane Chamberlain

Twenty-three-year-old Tess DeMello is engaged to the love of her life. Their wedding day is getting close. So it doesn't make sense to her fiancé when she abruptly ends their engagement and runs off to marry a stranger. Tess leaves Baltimore and moves to Hickory, North Carolina. Her husband, Henry Kraft, is secretive and distant and he often stays out late or doesn't bother to come home at all. She doesn't fit in with the people of Hickory. They all love and respect the Kraft's and view Tess as an outsider, someone who's after his money. Unhappy in Hickory and trapped inside a loveless marriage, Tess is desperate to get her old self back which happens when a sudden polio epidemic erupts and their small town is selected as the perfect spot for a hospital. Everyone in Hickory helps build this hospital in just over two days. Against her husband's wishes Tess begins helping out as a nurse and soon finds herself very happy to be of help to the young victims. But her husband's behaviour is taking its toll on Tess who wants some answers and wants out of their marriage.

 

Another five star read by Diane Chamberlain. A solid, interesting story with three-dimensional characters. I liked the setting and the fact that the people of Hickory really did build, staff and get a hospital up and running in fifty-four hours. Wow! That's impressive. I really liked Tess and was rooting for her to find happiness after everything she'd been through. Chamberlain has a way of making you feel part of instead of simply reading a book. I loved it!

 

Thank you to Netgalley and St. Martin's Press for an ARC.

I've read 22%
The Goblins of Bellwater - Molly Ringle

And I don't want to keep reading it.

Four characters that apparently only have been introduced due to romantic interests.

Basically this reads as a contemporary with some aspects of fantasy, and I don't like how depression is being presented.
