Review: Split by JB Salsbury

Crista’s Review 5 Stars!! ***Spoiler-Free Review*** This is definitely a book that should NOT be spoiled.  In some ways I am completely uncertain how to review this book without spoiling anything, so I guess I will be vague and brief. I absolutely adored this book! This is a book that I stayed up ’til the wee hours of the night to finish.  I seem to remember books that I loose sleep over (and don’t regret it), and this was certainly one of those. Shyann is coming home after being gone for five years.  She is estranged from her father and is going to home to rebuild her bank account and pick […]

Review: Slow Burn by Pamela Clare (Colorado High Country #2)

Review: Slow Burn by Pamela Clare (Colorado High Country #2)

Crista’s Review 5 Stars! Slow Burn is the second novel in Pamela Clare’s new Colorado High Country series.  I enjoyed the first book, Barely Breathing and gave it 5 stars, but this book is even better!! I enjoyed it more, so if I could, I would give it MORE than 5 stars! This is great writing.  You can tell that Ms. Clare understands Colorado and lives there.  The mountains and the setting come alive in this series, and I have half a mind to move to Colorado just to live near this fictional town and fictional characters! Eric Hawke.  Just his name gives me the chills and his character is even […]

Review Rewind: Taming Eliza Jane (Gardiner, Texas #1) by Shannon Stacey

Review Rewind: Taming Eliza Jane (Gardiner, Texas #1) by Shannon Stacey

Karla’s Review 5 Stars! What a pleasant surprise!  An endearing and fun love story! Think Maverick/Cheyenne Social Club/Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, all rolled into one.  Eliza Jane, divorced women’s libber has come to town, and now the townsfolk are in an uproar, and she is at the center of it all. The trigger finger happy sheriff, Adam, and town doc/deputy sheriff, Will, have made it their business to keep her in line. One wants to shoot her, and the other one wants to bed her. Quite the comedic duo. Will is charming, sexy, sweet, and he’s just the man to keep Eliza Jane out of trouble…maybe! But trouble has a way of […]

Review: The Bird and the Sword by Amy Harmon

Review: The Bird and the Sword by Amy Harmon

Crista’s Review 5 Magical Stars!!! Captivating, Enchanting, Mesmerizing, and Mystical These are just a few words that I can’t seem to shake from my mind as I try to recover from the experience of reading The Bird and the Sword.  I sit at my computer wondering how to conjure up words that will do this book even a hint of justice.  The gift that lies in between the first and last pages of The Bird and the Sword is the rare and beautiful gift of writing genius.  It’s a gift that is utterly spellbinding, has the power to transport you into another world, and will leave you wondering how to summon […]

Flashback Friday: Falling for Gracie (Los Lobos, #2) by Susan Mallery

Flashback Friday: Falling for Gracie (Los Lobos, #2)  by Susan Mallery

Dorsey’s Review 5 Feel Good Stars!! Fourteen-year-old Gracie Landon falls in love with eighteen-year-old Riley Whitefield, really truly in love. Her antics to discourage him from dating got so out of hand that she made the local small town newspaper which became to be known as “The Gracie Chronicles”. Her mother, in desperation, and in what was supposed to be a temporary solution, shipped Gracie off to live with her aunt and uncle, however, it would be 14 years until she finally returns. Much to Gracie’s dismay, her antics are town lore and NOT forgotten. “She’d been so hopeful that people would forget her.” Gracie is now a successful and popular wedding […]

Review Rewind: Silver Lining by Maggie Osborne

Review Rewind: Silver Lining by Maggie Osborne

Steffi’s Review 5 Stars! What a pleasant surprise! Silver Lining is the story of Low Down or Louise Downe, a woman who just wants to be one of the guys. Or rather she has to be because she is one of many prospectors searching for gold in the Rockies. When everyone around her suddenly falls ill, Low Down nurses the men through the pox. In return, they agree to grant her, her deepest wish. Low Down’s deepest most heartfelt wish is….a baby but no one volunteers for the job, so the men have a drawing. The man who has to step in for his friends and comrades is Max McCord. When […]
