Charming and witty romance
Perfect Match - Lila Monroe

This is my first read by Lila Monroe, but it won't be my last. Perfect Match is charming and witty, making for a fast-paced, lighthearted tale. McKenna is a great combination of sass and determination and Jack is such an endearing playboy. Their banter and the lengths that MaKenna goes to get Jack's backing for her business are amusing and fun. The chemistry between this pair is almost palpable and they are so good together, even when they won't admit it.

Perfect Match is part of the Lucky in Love series, but works well as a standalone. It's well-written with likable characters, some chuckle-worthy situations, and a fast-paced, sexy romance.

This is a book that deals with some controversial subjects, that I feel, ultimately has its heart in the right place.  The MC, in the beginning, comes off as very immature and offensive with some of the comments she has about Muslim women.  But…I think it was done this way by the author for a purpose, so you could see her learn and relate and even grow as a person.  Which she does do, and she becomes a better person by the end. 

 

My only issue with this, was mainly just that it was slow; not much happens that excited me.  Mostly, just sightseeing and eating different kinds of food.  Then at about 85% mark something does happen, and yeah, you could totally see it coming…and then we're rushed into an ending and an epilogue…all very quickly done.  I did really like the Cedar Point references, (MC is from Sandusky, Ohio) because I do love Cedar Point.

 

Will I read more from this Author?  Yes, I would; I only ever read one other book by Trish Doller (Something Like Normal) and I really liked that one.

Amazing Historical Romance
The Perfect Duke - Dawn Ireland

The Perfect Duke by Dawn Ireland is an awesome historical romance.  Ms Ireland has delivered a well-written book and packed it full of outstanding characters.  Cara and Garret’s story is full of drama, action, suspense, humor and sizzle.  I loved this book and look forward to reading more from Dawn Ireland in the future.  The Perfect Duke is book 2 of the Georgians Beyond The Pale Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

The Postcard: Escape to Cornwall with th... The Postcard: Escape to Cornwall with the Perfect Summer Holiday Read - Fern Britton

Two and a half star rating.
Secrets, sisters and Cornwall - what's not to like, but sadly it was a bit of a disappointment and didn't live up to its promise. The characters were either awful or sickly sweet and I didn't warm or care what happened to them plus apart from the use of mobile phones you would think this story was set decades ago. The Cornish descriptions were good and you could almost smell the ozone, so this might be a good book to read if you are lounging on a beach somewhere.
