This is a gleeful romance with a Dark Elf hero and healing at its core. Good times.

Susannah's Garden
Susannah's Garden - Debbie Macomber

This is the 3rd book in the Blossom Street Series and it is also my favorite book in the series.  I'm not sure what it is about this book that makes me like it so much but I've read it 4 times (that I can remember).  I guess maybe it is because there is a mystery to be solved and I love mysteries.  I often have a hard time staying interested in books when there isn't a mystery. 

 

This book takes the reader away from Blossom Street when Susannah learns her widowed mother is not doing as well as she thought living alone.  She decides to go stay with her mother for a while and see how she is doing for herself.  She soon realizes her mother needs to be moved to a long-term care facility.  She was especially concerned when her mother tells her that her dead husband is coming to see her.  

 

Susannah also has another mission too, one she did not tell her husband about.  She wants to find her high school boyfriend and find out why he suddenly left and where he went.  While looking through her father's desk she uncovers some things that her father was keeping secret.  Together with one of her friends from high school they start to put the pieces together.

 

While Susannah is dealing with those things her daughter is home from college for the summer and decides to come and help her mom with her grandmother.  She ends up hooking up with a troublemaker that is the son of someone Susannah went to school with.  Susannah is sure he is dealing drugs and doesn't want her daughter to be involved with him but trying to talk to her daughter only causes more problems.  Her daughter is just like Susannah was when she was that age and she is learning how her dad must have felt.

A Lesson Learned

Last night I wrote up a post and suddenly started to get tired.  I decided to save it as a draft and finish it in the morning.  It didn't save though and I'm sad.  I did a test with this post to see how it works.  Either my click didn't register or there was a gremlin in the works.  When I clicked "Save as draft" for this one I could tell it worked because the screen changed as the gears turned to release the little elves to move the item to the proper location.  I checked and there is a new link for drafts and I was able to access it and continue.  I guess I need to slow down and make sure things work before turning off my computer.  

 

Oh well, ya live and learn. I looked outside and there are no shards of sky on the ground so all is well.

Bane by Viola Grace Review
Bane - Viola Grace

A healer who can’t control her talents meets a dark elf who needs her to shape her own destiny and save his people.

Ava has gotten used to the solitude of being a contact healer, but when she is stolen before she can get to her next assignment, she is up for sale to a very specific clientele. The folk of Nafki need her for her healing abilities, but the raiders who stole her want her for her ability to create a toxin for any species she has ever healed. Her talent successfully helps pause the plague rippling through the population, but once she has a grasp on the dark elves of Nafki, she knows that being used as a weapon to kill them is the next step in the plan.

Kondr has faith in Ava’s ability to heal his people, but when she confesses that she is the true danger, he has to decide between the safety of his people and the woman who has caught his attention and imagination,

 

Review

 

I love the portrayal of loneliness in this romance. How a the gift of healing also has other impacts. The world building in this story is well done. The heroine is very practical and clever. 

 

Elf heroes are always a good time.

Conflict (Terran Times) Viola Grace Review
Conflict - Viola Grace

Kaia has lived to fight, to protect those who could not protect themselves. After a disastrous battle that left her nearly dead, she wakes to find herself on Ikanni with dark elves all around. Kaia is given an energy being to boost her acceptance into local society and the elf lord who says they are linked at a basic level will not let her out of his sight.

Thaxis has been dreaming of the woman with chalky skin and blue and green hair. The moment he feels that she is in deadly danger, he risks his life to rescue her from certain destruction. How can a man reap the rewards of rescuing a damsel in distress when she is too wounded to see him?

Self-control is all Thaxis knows, but why is it that it goes out the window when he deals with the moon-bright Terran?

 

Review

 

The hero is this short story is great. We get a real sense of him which is uncommon in this series. He loves the heroine for exactly who she is. He is very alpha as is she so it is fun to watch them work it out.

 

Good stuff.
