Fabulous Read!!
Chance Collision - C.A. Szarek

Chance Collision is another awesome book by C.A. Szarek.  Ms. Szarek has once again delivered a well-written book and loaded it with phenomenal, lovable characters.  I totally love the characters in this series.  Pete is a detective.  Nikki is the much younger administrative assistant to the chief and she witnesses a murder while visiting her grandmother at her nursing home.  Their story is loaded with action, suspense, humor, sizzle and Pete's drama over being too old for Nikki.  I enjoyed reading Chance Collision and can't wait to read the next book from C.A. Szarek.  Chance Collision is book 2 of the Crossing Forces Series but can easily be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I voluntarily read an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Miracle on Chance Avenue - Jane Porter Miracle on Chance Avenue - Jane Porter

 

 

Miracle on Chance Avenue by Jane Porter

#MiracleOnChanceAvenue #NetGalley

Book starts out with Rory Douglas and he's on the bull when he sees her as they open the gates.

He recalls seeing her at every rodeo stop along the circuit but she's never approached him. He knows she's there for him.

Sadie has followed her impossible dreams and she has followed him throughout the rides and even went in to see him at the hospital when he told her to get out. She just wants his baby but she can never tell him. Then her mom died and that crushed her.

She had worked at Big Sky but now works in town at her own business and she's saving for a family. She works at the real estate agency also and is waiting for a man to come to the house as he's rented it....

What I liked about this story was the theme-how do you tell someone that you've had a crush on that you want his baby. She's so determined and he remembers her at every stop. He feels she is his angel-looking out for him. He'd never settle down but he'd marry her in a heartbeat.

He'd done the renovation work himself in the house and had rented it out over the years. She has no clue.

She refinishes furniture that others throw out everything learned from her mother. Love hearing of one using their own hands to make a living and how they do it.

Loved hearing of the tree where you select a gift to get for a child and it strikes him as he's a caring man and the scholarships he set up for others in town over the years. The bad memories are leaving and good ones are taking their place.

Lots of heartache and fun and laughs also. When I started reading this series the Indian Paintbrush flower are the seeds I bought online to grow myself because the struck something in me and I knew my garden needed them also. Liked the praying for a chance, that's all he needed.

Loved hearing of the activities they do during the season and finding the perfect ornaments depicting the season.

I received this review book from Net Galley and this is my honest review.

Review: Tempting Danger (Retribution #2) by Katie Reus
Tempting Danger - Katie Reus

We met Alina and Andre in the first book (Retribution) when she and her sister were trying to avenge their parent’s murder. This book was not as fast-paced as the first book nor did it have any paranormal elements but it was still an entertaining read. It was cute to see the things a hormonal pregnant woman has to go trough and how the people around her deal with the situations.

The thing I didn’t like much was that I was expecting more of a struggle in the romantic department. It went from “enemies” to “I want you back in my life” in the span of a millisecond (not quite literally but it sure felt that way) which I feel didn’t allow me connect to the characters that much.

Left to Chance
Left to Chance: A Novel - Amy Sue Nathan

By:  Amy Sue Nathan

ISBN: 9781250091116

Publisher:  St Martin's Press

Publication Date: 11/21/2017 

Format: Paperback

My Rating: 4 Stars

 

Amy Sue Nathan returns following The Good Neighbor andThe Glass Wives with LEFT TO CHANCE – can you return home, unchanged?

A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it." – George A. Moore

Teddi Lerner left Chance, Ohio years ago. It was not a place for wimps; however, she was on her way, regardless. The place that had haunted her for the past six years. The town she grew up in, and ran from, on the day of Celia’s funeral.

Teddi is a successful wedding photographer for Hester Hotels and is called home to photograph the wedding of her best friend’s (Celia) husband, Miles. They had a daughter, Shayna who is now twelve years old. This is the only reason she is back. This is what mattered most. 

Everything has changed in the small town. There is also Celia’s brother, Beck. Beck, of course, looked better at thirty-five than at twenty-nine. 

Beck held a grudge. She did not blame him. But Teddi had allowed herself to believe he would forgive her. 

She had always photographed things that grew. Babies, kids, flowers, relationships. Those things also died. She also had forgotten what it was like to be with people who knew things about her besides what she had chosen to tell them. 

Does she know what true friendships and deep relationships meant? Letting someone in, letting her down, and possibly letting her go. 

From an unexpected friendship, secrets of the past, guilt, and emotional courage— a warmhearted charming story of love and loss and what it truly means to return home. 

Redemption. Facing the past and overcoming obstacles. A Hallmark story for those who enjoy happy endings and discovering the truly important things in life.

For fans of Sonja Yoerg, Barbara Claypole White, Patti Callahan Henry, Joanne Demaio, and women's contemporary fiction. 

A special thank you to St. Martin's Press and NetGalley for an advanced reading copy.
