Really??
Evonnia & the Maiden - Keira Michelle Telford

I'm not sure what Miss Tellford is doing lately but I'm not really enjoying these shorts of hers. The overall plots draw me in but when I begin reading them I'm left feeling like the attempt was very poor and the dynamic was executed poorly. This was supposed to be a steamy one-shot, but it was anything but that. The sexual dialogue and description were very childish and silly even. It was so outlandish it was like 'Oh come already!'. Some people might enjoy that angle, but I am not one of them.

REVIEW BY AMY - We Thought We Were Invincible (Invincible #1) by Michelle Lynn
We Thought We Were Invincible - Michelle Lynn

California “Callie” McCoy feels most alive when her feet are planted firmly on her surfboard on a big swell. And one day, she dreams of riding that wave out of her small town. Away from everyone.

Her plan is simple: graduate high school. With Callie's best friend gone away to college, she plans on spending her senior year skating by. She isn’t looking for friends, and especially not for love - all she needs are her waves and her twin brother. Even if he comes with an annoying best friend, Jamie Daniels, who she can’t stand.

Jamie is a care-free, easy-going surfer who has everything. On the surface, his life appears perfect, but reality is far from it. He has his share of secrets, including one that burns deeper than any other. It’s a good thing Callie hates him because if she didn’t, Jamie knows there’s no way he’d be able to stay away.

And then, one night, everything changes. And nothing will ever be the same.

 

@AuthorMichelleL, @Mommy_Amers, #Young_Adult, #Contemporary, 5 out of 5 (exceptional)

Out of the Frying Pan - A cozy little romance ... with murder on the side. - Michelle Griep,Kelly Klepfer

Out of the Frying Pan BY KELLY KLEPFER
Enjoyed this book although it was a bit more like 2 books in one. First if the mystery of the chef found dead at the retirement center and the elderly sisters-in-law investigate on their own.
They also have a neice, KC that comes to visit who had visited before and fallen for the local cop, Jared but they break up as she leaves to go back to work in another location.
Katherine comes to help again and the elderly sisters pair them up together and realize what it is they really have in a relationship. Lots of turmoil, drugs, spies, wedding plans, ongoing love relations, and everyday events a bit tilted.
Like how religion plays a part in this with the explanation of the tattoo.  At times with so many characters things get confusing.
I was given the book by the author via Book Fun (The Book Club Network) and here is my honest review.

The Book of Summer: A Novel - Michelle Gable

Bess Codman returns to her childhood home after four years with one mission. To get her cantankerous mother Caroline (Cissy) out of the home that her great grandmother had built 99 years ago. It was built on a bluff high above the ocean in Nantucket. That bluff has been and is falling slowly away. There is about ten feet left before the house starts to go. Cissy is determined that she is going to save the house. The tennis courts are gone, the pool is gone, the yard is gone, everything is gone including most of the patio. Cissy continues to fight.

Bess recently leaving her husband (what a guy this turned out to be) is dealing with that issue and Cissy. While fighting with him and her, she decides to go ahead and start packing. The first thing she finds is The Book of Summer. This is a book that has been in the house since the beginning and everyone who has ever been at the house has signed it, some several times.

The book goes back and forth from present day and then to quips written in the book and then to the relatives that lived in the house, mostly Bess's grandmother Ruby. It is a great story about family, very emotional, tragic and everything centered around Cliff House. You can see why Cissy is fighting so hard to keep this house.

I just loved this book and when it was over, it was very hard to let go of. Cissy is a feisty character, but one that you grow to love. I got lots of chuckles out of her. There were definitely some emotional moments and some romantic moments. Some moments you won't believe. It's just all in all a family saga that leaves you feeling good in the end.

A very entertaining read and I thank St. Martin's Press and Net Galley for allowing me to read and review this book.

Fantastic!!
Meant for You - Michelle Major

Meant For You is my first book by Michelle Major, but won't be my last.  This is a fairly quick read, a perfect choice for romance fans with limited time for reading.  Ms Major has put a well-written book in our hands.  Her characters in this book are perfect for the story, I especially loved Cooper.  Jenny and Owen's story is loaded with drama, humor and spice.  A plus on the dialog.  Everything in this book is in sync and works perfectly together.  I totally enjoyed reading Meant For You and look forward to reading more of this new (to me) author in the future.

 

I won a copy of this book from Goodreads.
