Dear Abby

I started a new "Dear Abby" blog post section from readers, answered by one of my readers!

 

Dear Mia & Sugar,
I want to attend a book signing(s), but there are SO many types to choose from. I must admit—I am overwhelmed and am in need of book signing advice.

Sugar and Spice and All Those Lies

Review:

"Sugar and Spice and All Those Lies" by Evy Journey

My Thoughts....

I found that this novel had a good romantic storyline with a dark twist that will definitely keep you reading. The jest of the story is that Gina comes from a poor family but loved to cook and ends up getting a wonderful Chef's job at a restaurant in the Bay area of San Francisco where she quickly has a life change. Gina's life really changes as she has a different life since her move, working in a rich restaurant and making friends, however, there will be twist and turns that will come from all of this when jealous women [Cristi & Marcia] come out of the woodwork.

This author really gives the readers a interesting romance thriller read with some 'intriguing characters and unforeseen dangers.' What will happen as two guys have a interest in Gina with one of the two being a former boyfriend of Gina's friend. Who will Gina choose...Brent the detective or Leon the rich playboy? What will happen when Gina's began to receive death threats? By the end will these men 'help, harm or be a part of her journey? To get these questions and more answered you will have to pick up "Sugar and Spice and All Those Lies" to see how this story will come out.

I really enjoyed how the author included cookery-themed recipes with tips on how to cook better. This story really will capture the readers attention to the last page.

This novel was from "BookLikes giveaway" and I received this copy from the BookLikes Giveaway contest!

March TBR Of Exciting New Releases

The Flight Attendant: A Novel - Chris Bohjalian
The Parking Lot Attendant: A Novel - Nafkote Tamirat
The Room on Rue Amélie - Kristin Harmel
Divas Don't Cry - Ni-Ni Simone
The Belles - Dhonielle Clayton

I can't tell you how excited I am for these 8 reads. The reviews that are being posted all over the Internet have been great. Some of these books I have been anticipating for over a year. I hope they live up to all the hype and excitement. I have to give a shout out to the books with most beautiful cover designs; The Children of Blood and Bone, The Silent Companions and Sugar Money. Aren't they wonderful?

 

I had a really good reading month last month. I read eleven books. They were all short quick reads. There were no literary works in that stack so, I got through them pretty quickly. I know some of these books are pretty lofty in size and in content, but if I stay on task and read daily, I should be fine.
