What I love about Mary Calmes is that she has a book for whatever you’re in the mood for. If you want action and depth you have the Marshal books, if you want true mates and adventure you have the Change of Heart series, and if you want some rainy day feel goods you have the Mangrove series. I say this because if you’re in the mood for violence and obsessive love you would pick up Mine not Easy Evenings, but if you want to be taken back to the world that makes you smile with light love and fun romances Easy Evenings is the perfect level of tone and feel goods.
Now on to Lazlo… I have to say he’s pretty cool. While I do wish we could have gotten more into Lazlo’s head and life, this little dip had me wanting more Mangroves. First off I love that we get to get the full story. I’ll admit I thought Britton was one of his clients, had no idea they were in love! Getting into Laz and Britton’s past was great (love how they met) and I felt for Britton too. I will say that I did not like his mother, at all, it was hard to connect to her as a character (even as a villain) because I don’t understand where her anger came from. I know we’re told that Laz and his sister had different fathers but having a flash back or a memory of why the mother hated him so much would go a long way. Over all though I love that we also got a new look at Hutch’s…. nemesis? I can’t wait for the next one, like I said earlier you have to get the right book for the mood ☺ ...more

INTERVIEW WITH THEA HARRISON
What can readers expect from this latest Pia/Dragos installment?
Thea: Dragos and Pia have an important development going on in their personal lives, and the story goes into detail about that news. Also, the story touches on the Light Fae demesne in Los Angeles and provides some background information of how that demesne came to be. It also describes a serious ongoing threat to Queen Tatiana and her subjects.
I hear Pia has a new … (is it a spoiler?) baby! Why the nickname of Stinkpot, and tell us about this little bundle of joy!
Thea: It is a bit of a spoiler, but since Dragos Goes to Washington has been out for several weeks, I’m sure readers will forgive us. From the very little that Dragos and Pia have been able to gather about the new baby, it’s a secretive little creature. In Pia Does Hollywood, Pia has a couple of dreams about the baby, like she did with her first son, Peanut/Liam. This baby seems to have something of a contrary nature … so the nickname Stinkpot just came about naturally.
Who is the next hero/heroine combo for the Elder Races couple?

This is the first contemporary from Poppy (loved the baby alpha bites!) and I really hope this is going to be in audio.

Dogwood Days is a story that has everything I’m looking for on Sunday afternoon, sitting on my porch as my dogs bound through the leaves… too much? Well it sums up how feel good and happy reading DD I was. I’m not saying it’s fluffy or too light, but there was this vibe of small town charm, I could feel the characters’ personalities coming out of my kindle and it was great!
I won’t rehash the plot, but the part that really shines in this book (hopefully series…!) are the characters. There’s so many of them and none of them fade into the backdrop of the world building or get confused with other characters. Each have a life of their own and it made it impossible to leave Holly Creek even after the last page. I found that I wanted to see more of Jake, Zane, Clover, and so so many others. Seriously, they’re so real so vivid, I felt like if I walked outside I’d see a few of them milling about my neighborhood.
One last thing, I read it very fast, it felt like it was a short instead of a novella, I read it that fast. I think Poppy discovered something in creating Holly Creek, and I hope this series is around for a while. I want to step back into the town, discover all the nooks and hidey-holes and unravel some mysteries! ...more
