The Gamble by Kristen Ashley

The Gamble by Kristen Ashley

A fabulous book with great characters but I have to say it was also incredibly exhausting. Nina Sheridan has to take a time-out from her fiancé and wants to spend two weeks in a cabin in the Colorado Mountains. When she arrives from England after countless hours of traveling, she finds out that the cabin has been double-booked and the owner is currently staying there. Max makes a very bad first impression on Nina and she leaves to find a hotel in town. As if that wasn’t bad enough her car breaks down on her way into town and she has to spend the night freezing, in the backseat. One good […]

Four Days of Christmas: Day Three

Four Days of Christmas: Day Three

Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor by Lisa Kleypas Since the publication of the second book (Rainshadow Road) in the marvelous Friday Harbor series by Lisa Kleypas is coming closer, I thought it would be fitting to include the first book, Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor, in our Four Days of Christmas event. I have to admit that I wasn’t the biggest fan of the book when I first read it. Here is the review I first posted on goodreads: “The first book in the Friday Harbor series by Lisa Kleypas. I was so looking forward to this book and literally quivering when it finally hit the stores:) The love story was very sweet […]

Four Days of Christmas: Day Two

Four Days of Christmas: Day Two

‘Twas the the night by Sandra Hill, Trish Jensen and Kate Holmes  I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I started reading this book written by three different authors. Each author took a character, wrote their romance, passed it on to the next, round-robin style, and then linked them together as one story. Beautifully done, and if I didn’t know better I would have assumed it was written by one person. The plot centers around three men, Sam, Kevin and Stan, who formed a brotherly bond as young boys after they met in the orphanage where they were raised.  Their friend and mentor, George Garrison, town veterinarian of Snowden […]

Four Days of Christmas: Day One

Four Days of Christmas: Day One

Small Town Christmas by Jill Shalvis, Hope Ramsay and Katie Lane Small town Christmas consists of three short stories by Jill Shalvis, author of the amazing Lucky Harbor series, Hope Ramsay and Katie Lane. I love reading anthologies because very often it gets me to try out new books and authors that I hadn’t considered before. Kissing Santa Claus by Jill Shalvis: In Kissing Santa Claus, Jill Shalvis takes us back to Lucky Harbor and gives us the story of NASCAR driver Logan Parrish, Tara’s ex-husband from The Sweetest Thing. I’m a huge fan of Jill Shalvis, especially the Lucky Harbor series, and I really loved this short trip back to […]
