Book #7.1

I’m sorry to say that I only made it to page 17 of this book. Normally, I’m a big fan of the craft-related women’s friendship books. I loved Jennifer Chiaverini’s quilting books. However, the main character in this book is dealing with the death of her five-year old daughter. I tried to get past this, […]

Book #7

UPDATE: Read the comment! The author, Ms. Kathleen O’Brien herself, made a comment on my blog! Woo hoo! I’m so cool! Thanks, Kathleen :) Book three in the Four Seasons in Firefly Glen, The Redemption of Matthew Quinn, is another goody from Kathleen O’Brien. Some of my favorite Glenners made appearances (namely, Suzie Strickland and […]

Book #6

I just finished Plum Lovin’ by Janet Evanovich – a between the numbers Stephanie Plum book. I love all the Stephanie Plum books, and this one didn’t disappoint, except that it was remarkably short. I think it took about three hours total to read. But still, funny and ridiculous like all of Stephanie and Lula’s […]

Book MEME

I don’t know what a MEME is, but I like this list, so I want to participate…I’m going to skip the italicizing bit – I’d like to make my way through the whole list. Instrutions: Look at the list of books below. *Bold the ones you’ve read *Italicize the ones you want to read *Leave […]

Book #5

Well, I’ve finally finished The Masque of the Black Tulip.  Let me preface this review with some info. I listened to the first book in this series on audiobook. It was excellent – probably because the reader had an English accent, and it may have been abridged. That said, I did not enjoy this book […]

Book #3

Book #2 in the Four Seasons of Firefly Glen, Babes in Arms by Kathleen O’Brien – loved it! I read it in a day, and ordered the other two books in the series off of amazon the same day. Even cooler, I emailed the author to tell her how much I loved the first book, […]

Book #4

Funniest book I’ve read in a long time, and that includes Jon Stewart’s America. The ridiculous situations Sammy faces reminded me of so many people in my life, myself included, that I couldn’t help but relate to her plight. I would not categorize this book as Chick Lit – although I am a die-hard fan […]

Book #2

Winter Baby by Kathleen O’Brien. I’m a Harlequin junkie when the mood hits me, and I got this great book off of eHarlequin months ago. Luckily, I got the Signature Select edition, which has two books in it, so I’m already starting the next one. Great small upstate-New York town, believable characters, sweet love scenes…great […]

Book #1

I received this book through First Look, my source of free galley copies. I loved it so much that I started reading all of Parker’s books. He uses simple language, simple characters with depth, and stories that don’t have a lot of Soap Opera twists and backwards turns. The main gist is a cop’s family […]
