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.

White Rabbit by Caleb Roehrig
White Rabbit - Caleb Roehrig

A ticking-clock thriller set in Vermont. Rufus has one night to prove that his privileged half-sister didn't kill her boyfriend before the cops get involved. April has clearly been set-up and the drug 'White Rabbit' is Rufus' best lead. With time so short he's unable to turn down any help, even if that help is coming from his ex-boyfriend, Sebastian.

Roehrig brings a noir sensibility to 'White Rabbit' that carries what would have been a sanitized thriller into an entertaining read. That noir sensibility includes some pretty fucked up ideas about relationships, and interacting with people in general. That's part of the genre, even if your world-weary detective is a teen with a bad case of the why-mes.

White Wild Indigo by Jet Widick

Lovely illustrations throughout, but the poetry made me feel like I was reading a bunch of greeting cards.
 
Not impressed.
 
I received this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest 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.
