"Pineapple Lies: A Pineapple Port Mysteries Book 1" by Amy Vansant

My Thoughts...

This story starts in a retirement community in Florida for 55 and up. What will happen after Charlotte is now living with her grandmother and the grandmother dies? Charlotte who was around twenty will continue living there since he has inherited the home. What will happen when Charlotte decides to have a garden put in the back porch area and a skull is found? Who is this person and just how long has this skull been there? How will this all come together as we have a younger woman living in a older community? Be prepared for quite a mystery where there will be plenty of secrets coming out, romance, also suspense with even some humorous moments. The characters [Charlotte, Mariska, Darla, Bob, Frank, Jackie, Seamus, Henry & Declan] are well developed, portrayed and so very believable giving the readers a good romantic/comedy/murder/ mystery read this will keep you guessing. How will this crew solve this case? Well, you will have to pick up this fun read 'Pineapple Lies' to find out.

My Thoughts...

 

This author gives the reader in this third book in the Crazy Rich Asians series a read of great drama, some hilarious laughs with some characters, wonderful vacations spots, entertainment and scenic descriptions[clothing and jewelry] that will really have you thinking you are looking at a movie right in front of you.  What wacky antics that this large family seems to have that will keep you turning the pages to its conclusion to a hilarious series. Be prepared to read of a 'dysfunctional, paranoid, social climbing crazies with some ridiculous fun.' This will be one intriguing, incredible and entertaining read that I would recommend to the readers.

Review:

"Winter Kisses" by S.I. Hayes & J. Haney

My Thoughts...

I liked this series ...[A County Fair romance Book 2] 'Winter Kisses' as it continues so very well from the first series..'Stolen Moments.' With the holiday coming how will these two... Fallen and Justin along with her protective brothers manage the holidays. The story will take quite a turn when Justin ends of visiting New York during New Years along with Fallon, Pete and Nick. Now that will be one trip for them as they meet Justin's best friend Blaine. There will definitely be a twist in this read as Justin meets with his father and mother. That will be quite a trip and let's now leave out Justin's best friend Blaine. How will all of this effect Nick situation? Oh, well as the story goes on it will seem like the story will come together however, another twist will come onto the scene when Justin comes back home to Kentucky. Now, I will stop here and just say that you will have to pick up this good series to see how wells these two author gives the readers a well written series. Now, what will come next for the favorite two main characters [Fallen & Justin] along with the rest of the Hopkins brothers and a friend [Blaine] in the next series [A County Fair Romance Book 3] in 'Spring Fling.'
