The Shadowy Horses
My first Susanna Kearsley, and definitely not my last - I was left wondering why I waited so long to read her. This was one of those quiet romances th ...more

Carousel Tides (Archers Beach, #1)
I found this slightly reminiscent of Tanya Huff’s equally-enjoyable “The Enchantment Emporium” because of the way the fantastic is seamlessly blended ...more

I probably do sound like a bit of a broken record when it comes to Andrea K Höst, but I have fallen in love with pretty much all of her books.

Alien in the Family (Katherine "Kitty" Katt, #3)
And this book, unfortunately, is where I draw a line under this series.

Don't get me wrong - it's still fun, but in the end, there were too many things

Wife for a Week (Bennett #1)
This book appealed to my sense of the ridiculous. When passages make you laugh or reread, you know you're on to a keeper. Hallie and Nick kept me up l ...more

Anna and the French Kiss (Anna and the French Kiss, #1)
So much hype around this book... and yeah, totally well-deserved.

It's a feel-good book that avoids being too fairytale-like, because the characters ar

I loved this book so much - it's the kind of tale that leaves you wanting more, not because it feels incomplete or unfinished*, but because there's po ...more

Danse de la Folie
I was initially thrown off a bit by the Heyer-like (or Austen-like?) language and the occasional usage of the author's omnipresent voice, but I actual ...more

Born to Darkness (Fighting Destiny, #1)
I'm a long-time Suzanne Brockmann fan, so I hate the fact I almost DNF'd this.

Neither of the main romances worked for me - one pairing was too sacchar

This was written back in 1982 and it shows in the sense it avoids the modern romance conventions - for instance, the hero doesn’t appear on the page u ...more

Shades of Milk and Honey (Glamourist Histories, #1)

A Bucket of Ashes (Gilded Age Mystery, #6)
This felt like a shorter book to me compared to the others in the series, but possibly only because of the amount of DRAMA packed into it. Which I lov ...more
