Review: The Post -It Note Affair by Justine Avery
The Post-it Note Affair: ~ a Romance Nov... The Post-it Note Affair: ~ a Romance Novelette of Love Lost and Found ~ - Justine Avery

Here is a summary of what the book is about. Emily wants what every woman does: to have it all. Is that too much to ask? Emily really can't complain.  She's married to a wonderful man, her high school sweetheart, who still dotes on her as he did when her first laid eyes on her.

 

They have a beautiful home together, and they each enjoy successful careers. On the outside looking in, Emily has what any woman would be perfectly happy with.

 

But it's just not enough. Emily can't help wishing for just a bit more- for that special spark, for that thrill of something new and surprising, for the shivery tingles running down her spine. For real passion- for true romance.

 

She never expects to find it during the workday and definitely not in the form of a sticky note.

 

Just one square slip of paper with a few handwritten words, tucked mysteriously into the contents of her purse and dropped right into her small world, marks the first of a slew of sexy surprises Emily couldn't  have anticipated no matter how hard she wished for them.  She's desperately sought after every one of the special moments in store for her, and there's no question that she deserves them.

 

Even as Emily eagerly anticipates and thoroughly savors all of the excitement and mystery of what may come, she just can't guess the roller coaster of emotions she's soon to experience- or just how much it will change her.

 

And she may never guess just who- is leading her on the romantic adventure of her dreams. Just when she feels she's lost the life and love she most wants to have, she finds them- in the last place she'd ever think to look.

 

Wow I loved this book because it reminds you of the important things in life.

 

This is a very quick story there are only 7 chapters in it.

 

I found the storyline to be very cute and sweet. I also saw some surprises that I didn't see coming.

 

I would recommend this book. I believe you all would enjoy it as well.

 

Happy Reading Everyone!

The Secret of a Heart Note
The Secret of a Heart Note - Stacey Covington-Lee

Mim lives a sheltered life with her mom at home. She longs to be a kid and experience school but being a aromateur like her mother, takes up most of her day. Being the only two aromateurs, Mim and her mother are quite busy making elixirs for individuals looking for a love potion. When her mother finally allows Mim to attend school, she finds herself overwhelmed with too much responsibility and not enough time. Mim plows ahead as she finally has got what she has always wanted but now Mim has created a problem, a huge problem for a aromateur and one that Mim doesn’t want to tell her mother about.

I liked that Mim tried to handle her own problems and boy, did this girl have the problems. It seems that every time she turned around, something else would crop up and she was trying to fix it. Others tried to help her but Mim still had a part in it, for it was her problem to begin with. I liked the magical aspects of this novel, how the different plants and flowers mixed together would do or fix something. It seemed natural, in its own way. I really enjoyed Mim’s aunt. This lady was a fun and uplifting character, that came when Mim needed her, although they did not have much of a past together. She wasn’t there to intrude or to be domineering, she was there for Mim, to help her. In the end, what Mim’s aunt did for her was huge. I found this novel entertaining and fun to read.

Quick note of apology

I haven't been regularly updating on BookLikes in a while, so I have a backlog of reviews to add so there might be a temporary influx of posts from me on your feed.  Apologies!

The Mark (The Score Series) - Kiki Swinson
Copycat - Kimberla Lawson Roby
A Note Yet Unsung (A Belmont Mansion Novel) - Tamera Alexander
Luxury and Larceny: Part 1 - Ty Marshall

I read 7 books in January. I'm so proud of myself that I stayed focused and tried to read everyday. There were a couple books that I did have to put down, but I'm happy I did. Leaving books that aren't working for me is something I promised to do in 2017 and obviously with 7 books read it's working. 

 

I read;

 

Breathless by Beverly Jenkins                    4 stars

 

Man on the Run by Carl Weber                   4 stars

 

The Score by Kiki Swanson                         3 stars

 

The Mark by Kiki Swanson                          3 stars

 

Copycat by Kimberly Lawson Roby             3 stars

 

A Note Yet Unsung by Tamera Alexander   3 stars

 

Luxury & Larceny by Ty Marshall                2 stars

 

 

It was a good month and in February I'm expecting to read more and hopefully read more 5 and 4 star reads.

Letters of Note, Volume 2: An Eclectic Collection of Correspondence Deserving of a Wider Audience
Letters of Note, Volume 2: An Eclectic Collection of Correspondence Deserving of a Wider Audience - Shaun Usher I received this book from LibraryThing's Early Reviewers program, but all opinions are my own.

I have always loved reading people's letters--they seemed to me to show the more intimate side of a person, moreso than any biography can. I received the first volume of Letters of Note for Christmas in 2014 and read it cover to cover, so I was thrilled to get Volume 2.

To me, what makes the Letters of Note books stand out from all the books of letters out there is the absolute high-quality of the books. You get not just transcripts of the letters, but photos of the letters themselves. You get to SEE the handwriting and/or typewriter flaws. In this volume, you see Mark Twain's first-ever typewritten letter and it is so thrilling to see that original. If the original is not available, there are full-page photographs of either the letter writer or an image that relates to the letter.

The book covers a huge range of dates--2014 to 1500 BC, and a diverse array of topics--letters to newborn children, last letters of those dying, love letters, hate letters, letters of joy, letters of grief. Basically, every emotion of life is here. But even with this array, there seems to be an overall theme of hope and of faith in humanity. This book leaves you feeling good.

If there is anything to complain about, it is that this book has a British slant to it, and particularly a British writer slant. It makes sense as Usher is British, but be forewarned that the Brits rule in this book.

I greatly enjoyed Letters of Note Volume 2 and give it 4 stars--a high rating from my parsimonious self.
