TRAIN WRECK BY: ELISE FABER
Train Wreck (Life Sucks Book 1) - Elise Faber

 

Train Wreck was like a breath of fresh air. It was so cute, light, sweet and funny and it was impossible to not be charmed by Pepper and all her adorkableness. She was honestly one of the most refreshing new characters that I have read in awhile. I think we have all felt like a train wreck of sorts at one time or another, and Pepper managed to make it feel okay to embrace that a little. Or at the very least accept it and still be able to face the day with a smile and a can-do attitude.

 

Pepper and Derek were really cute together. I liked the idea of these two both out trying to find their own way in life, free of the family expectations that don't quite fit them, and ultimately finding a new way together. Even if they were kind of fumbling through it at first, actually that might have been my favorite part.

 

This is the perfect little rom-com that pulls your right in from the beginning and has you rooting for these two to figure things out and make it work. It is a fun, quick read with laugh out loud moments. If you like contemporary romance with a side of comedy I suggest giving Train Wreck a try!

 

 

I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Book review: The Bride of Black Douglas by Elaine Coffman
The Bride of Black Douglas - Elaine Coffman

The storylines in this book take some erratic twists, with some plot points being dropped without conclusion. This review will discuss those in greater storyline detail than I would normally do, so I am erring on the side of caution and marking this review as containing spoilers.

 

The girl: Lady Meleri Weatherby has been engaged since childhood to the son her her aging father's good friend, but she now sees the light and realizes Lord Phillip is a cruel, cruel man. She knows she needs to end the engagement, but her father's mind is in the clouds, and her much older half-sisters are miles away in London (the Weatherby estate is in Northumbria).

 

"What she had once adored was nothing more than a thin veneer, cracked and peeling away."

 

The guy: Robert Douglas (he's the earl of something-or-other) is the latest head of the verra old Douglas clan. Things haven't been so good for this branch of the Douglases, and the ancient Beloyn Castle is falling into disrepair and there's no money to fix it (and it's mortgaged as well).  Worse yet, Robert gets a letter from King George ordering him to marry an Englishwoman (being a Scot he hates the English), and he's got three weeks to find one. So, he sets off with his younger brother and they're on horseback trotting through the wilds of Northumbria looking for an heiress to marry. You would think he'd have better luck in London socializing with the swanks, but no...
