Review: Since You've Been Gone (Magnolia Sound #8) by: Samantha Chase
Since You've Been Gone (Magnolia Sound #8) - Samantha Chase

 

 

 

Since You've Been Gone by Samantha Chase

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Since You've Been Gone is a welcome reminder of the genius that is Samantha Chase. She leads with heart. Tempts with humor and seduces with romance. Emmaline and Garrett take emotions on a tumultuous ride of love, life and heartache that will tug at the heartstrings. Small town romance with big personality.

END GAME by Samantha Wayland
End Game - Samantha Wayland

Rhian is now in Boston playing for the Bruins where Savannah is the trainer. Garrick is stuck in Moncton trying to rebuild the Ice Cats. Not a good situation for any of them. Rhian breaks off with Garrick with no word and Savannah wants to know why. She will not allow Rhian to go without a real good reason. Rhian is still haunted by his past and soon his past will catch up with him. Are the three of them strong enough to deal with all that comes their way?

 

I loved this book. I loved the emotion shown between Savannah and Rhian. I loved that Savannah would not let go of Rhian. Watching them come to terms with their relationship and letting other people into their private world made for good reading. I enjoyed the nod the "With Grace," one of the first books I read on polyamory.

 

I'm glad there is still a Christmas book with these three. I'm going to miss them.

The Truants
The Truants - Kate [Samantha Weinberg] Westbrook

by Kate Weinberg

 

I had to wonder why I requested this one for review because I usually steer clear of college settings, mainly because I never had the opportunity to go to college or university and I just don't identify with the situation. It was the final line of the blurb that did it: "What is the true cost of an extraordinary life?"

 

The writing is good so I was able to get into it. Jess is the sort of person who prefers to keep invisible in a crowd, but she develops a friendship with a popular girl and hero worship of a teacher who has a way of attracting students almost like a cult leader. Shades of The Dead Poets Society!

 

Overall I liked the concept but it did take a long time for anything to happen. This will probably appeal more to younger people near college age.

FAIR PLAY by Samantha Wayland
Fair Play - Samantha Wayland

Savannah is the trainer for the Moncton Ice Cats. She maintains a chilly front so the players don't hit on her. When she learns the team is up for sale, she lets Garrick LeBlanc know and they start to plan how the current owner can keep the team. Because of this they grow closer but, unfortunately, a buyer has stepped forward. Can they keep this buyer from the team? What will happen if this buyer gets the team?

 

There is a lot going on in this book. First, the romance. Second, the team and its sale. Third, problems for Savannah with a certain player. Lots of action and adventure as this story goes on as Savannah and Garrick have to find out the truth about the person who wants to buy the team. Savannah sure is a wiz with tape. It saves her many a day. I liked these characters, especially the good guys. I like how Savannah is oblivious to the support she has and discovers it has been there all along. I was glad the bad guys got theirs. Could not have happened to better couple. They deserve each other.

 

I am looking forward to the other books in this series.

Searching for Sylvie Lee
Searching for Sylvie Lee - Jean Kwok,Caroline McLaughlin,Angela Lin,Samantha Quan

Sylvie Lee spent the first nine years of her life in the Netherlands, with Helena (a distant cousin of Sylvie's mother), Willem (Helena's husband), Lukas (Helena and Willem's son), and Sylvie's maternal grandmother. Sylvie's parents had migrated from China to Queens, New York and struggled to establish themselves. When Sylvie was brought back to New York, she had a two-year-old sister Amy.

Sylvie travels back to the Netherlands upon learning that her grandmother is terminally ill. And while she is there, Sylvie disappears.

Amy, who has always lived in the shadow of her accomplished older sister, follows after Sylvie, determined to discover what has happened to her. She soon becomes enmeshed in confusing family entanglements and long-held secrets.

The book had its share of red herrings, and I did not predict the resolution that ultimately emerged.


I appreciated the complexity of the family relationships, including some tragic mutual misunderstandings.
