Join me for Dear Mr. Knightley!

This review is for the incredibly well written novel "Dear Mr. Knightley" by Katherine Reay.

For the first part of this I just have to commend Ms. Reay on an exceptionally well written and witty debut novel.  I have been super busy with the holidays so I still have about a quarter left to read of the book but I LOVE it.

I think that ANY fans of Jane Austin will get into this book just as much as I have. Don't get me wrong however it is NOT a period piece. It is a modern day, unique take involving Jane's voice, or those of her characters, so to speak.

I was expecting a completely different novel when just reading the title but I found to my delight that I was not at all disappointed with the story that was unearthed as I cracked that first page open.

I know I will definitely be reading more of Katherine's work if it is anything like this first undertaking.

And by the way, Katherine, if you read this I want to tell you Congratulations! and amazing job on your first novel! Such a huge accomplishment to get your book published and a dream come true that I hope I can have in common with you some day!

Join me fellow readers in this heartwarming story.

Samantha Moore has lived her life with her nose buried in books. She has taken her Austin approach to life to almost an extreme. It seems that Sam wouldn't even know how to be herself with out hiding betwixt the pages of Jane Austin. She has incorporated so much of it into her daily life as a means of hiding. Austin makes sense to Sam, others do not.

What Sam doesn't realize is that her own life might be a story waiting to be told.

This 23 year old orphan is about to get an amazing shot at an excellent education.

But in order to claim this blessing, Sam will have to step out of her comfort zone, out of her shell, and learn how to speak without all the Austin era dialog.

Finding her own voice might be just what Sam has needed all along.

One of the major things that I love about this book is how different it is. It is written as a series of letters and Katherine has an extremely unique voice when it comes to writing.

The tone of this book is almost hard to put into words since it is so different from everything else I have read but I very much enjoy it! If you are a fan of reading, a fan of Austin and a fan of Unique then pick up this debut novel by Katherine Reay. There is so much story here it's delicious!

Hope you all have had an amazing Thanksgiving!

Reluctant Courtship blog tour But Not a Reluctant Read!

This book review is for the novel "A Reluctant Courtship" by Laurie Alice Eakes.
It is the third book in the The Daughters of Bainbridge House series.

You know that a novel is good and a writer is great when they can make you really feel for the characters you are reading about. Laurie more than does this in her books and her writing is imaginative and phenomenal. I am such a fan of historical fiction like this, especially the ones that remind me of Jane Austen and this does a great job in this genre.

As I immersed myself in the emotional pool of Honore Bainbridges life, in her virtual exile in the country, I really felt for her. I found myself getting annoyed with her brother on her behalf and thinking how unjust the whole thing was and trying to figure out the mystery surrounding this storyline.
Like I said you know a good writer when... :)

I am hopeful there will be more books in this series because I love them!


Honore Bainbridge has two scandalous relationships in her past. Relationships that have tainted her in the eyes of "polite" society and the rest of her family has brushed her away to their county seat.

When Honore finds herself in a most precarious position she also finds herself rescued by the most unlikely of hero's and becomes in tangled in a mystery that might be more scandalous to her or his reputation than either of the other two.

I really love this series and I think you will too especially if you love historical fiction!

The Journey Of Josephine Cain *A Blog Tour*

This book review is for the novel "The Journey of Josephine Cain" by Nancy Moser.

I don't believe that I have ever read anything by Nancy before but I did enjoy this book.
I really enjoy historical novels and always love to discover a new good author who frequents this genre.

This book really takes you back into the post Civil war era and does a good job of helping you imagine what life must have been back in that period of America's history while still incorporating a fair amount of romance!

Josephine Cain is the well-to-daughter of an important General.
Wild west places are no sort of area for the genteel and the fairer sex.
However, Josephine has a mind of her own and has determined that she will
visit the frontier and she will visit her father as he supervises construction of the railroad.
What she failed to realize is the danger that day to day life in this land can bring and Josephine
faces far more than she ever bargained for when she steps foot in this untamed wilderness that paces for civilization. It certainly is not the type of civilization that she was raised to be in.
There just might be a purpose for her craving for the West though and Josephine just might find that out.

You will have to pick up a copy for yourself and see what happens to Josephine!

Glittering Promises Delivers

This book review is for the novel "Glittering Promises" by Lisa T. Bergren

This book is Book 3 in "The Grand Tour Series."

I love how Lisa's writing really paints a picture for you of where her characters are. Not only in their destination but also in their lives. She has a very good style of pulling you into the characters thoughts and emotions and really getting you into their heads which helps connect you to the story and keep you invested in the outcome. You can be pretty confident in picking up this series that it is going to be a good read :)

For Cora the Grand Tour is more than she ever even expected it to be. While setting out she knew it would be the trip of a lifetime and something she would always tell stories about but she never expected it to turn out to be as life-changing as it has for her.

It isn't enough that she has found the family she never knew existed or that she might possibly be in love for life...NO you have to throw in would be kidnappers and journalist who are enthralled with the pursuit of this newest heiress.

Cora will face the toughest battle of her life when all sides seem to collide and she isn't sure which path she should be on or which path she wants to be on.

The road less traveled can be quite the adventure but sometimes the heart longs for the tried and true.

The one thing I would advise with this book is to make sure that you have read the first two before picking this one up so you can continue along on Cora's exciting adventure!!

The Courier of Caswell Hall

This book review is for the novel "The Courier of Caswell Hall" by Melanie Dobson.

This is wonderful historical novel set during the American Revolution.
Melanie's writing really pulls you into this important period in our history during her story.
You can almost imagine being in the stunning plantations and walking the creaking halls of the magnificent old houses that once stood so proudly despite the scars and stories that were hidden behind their walls.

You have two women who are the best of friends but oh so different in the fight for freedom.

Lydia Caswell is a member of a serious Loyalist family who fall on the Kings side of things and then you have the sister of her fiancé and her very best friend, Sarah Hammond.

Lydia is desperate for peace. That is all she wants. For her fiancé to come home and make things right with her father and for things to be back to normal. Except her fiancé is for freedom while her father is for King and she fears that nothing will be quite the same ever again.

One restless night for Lydia will change the direction of her life forever.
The wounded man she courageously saves despite not knowing where his affiliation lies surprisingly survives the night. Nathan is disorientated when he awakens and in serious pain but he has been granted a second chance to deliver the imperative message that he carried before his injury.

Nathan introduces Lydia the Patriot side of things and hopes to sway her loyalties.

Neither like the fact that loved ones have been so divided by the war that is raging but both realize a side must be chosen once and for all and a stand must be made no matter which side you come down on.
I really enjoyed reading about this time in history and really liked Lydia's character.
Lydia and Sarah's story lines kept me turning the pages and I think you will like it as well!

This review is for the novel "Love's Awakening" by Laura Frantz. It is the second book in The Ballantyne Legacy.

I am a fan of historical fiction and was glad I picked this book to review. Laura Frantz is a two-time Carol Award winner and I can see why! If you haven't picked up any of her books but like historical fiction then I recommend this novel.


The year is 1822 and spring has begun it's yearly bloom. Ellie Ballantyne has just left her last year of finishing school and journeys back to the family home in Pittsburgh. When she arrives, however, the greeting is not as warm as she would have liked or expected. Her parents, she soon discovers, have gone for a long journey and her siblings seem less than thrilled to see her and would just as soon prefer she leave again.

Ellie is nothing if not determined and stand her ground she will. Deciding idle hands are not for her, she fills her days be opening a girls school for young ladies. She has been taught and knows she can pass on her knowledge to other women.

One of the students turns out to possibly be more than Ellie bargained for though. An incorrigible girl belonging to the Turlock family. Sensing danger, Ellie knows she must be very careful with this young women and the connections to that family. The Turlocks are whiskey magnates and slaveholders and have long been suspicious of the Ballantynes abolitionist leanings and have long been envious of their power in society.

Despite herself, Ellie finds her life intertwining far to often with the Turlock family and one young man in particular, Jack Turlock. Love wars with familial ties and loyalty. What will win out in the end?

Olivia Newports latest!

This book review is for the novel "The Invention of Sarah Cummings" by Olivia Newport. It is the third in the Avenue of Dreams series.

This one will be sure to keep you turning the pages to figure out how it will all come together in the end. I like finding good historical reads and this one is no exception.

"In a World where Everyone is Putting on A show, There is A love That is Genuine."

Like many who have traveled before her, Sarah Cummings dreams for a life that is not her own. Her greatest ambition is to rise from her position of server to members of the wealthy Banning family to a peer of people like the Banning's. Someone who will break bread alongside them instead of serving it to them with downcast eyes and a servants attitude.

What little time Sarah has for own, she spends in the pursuit of the unattainable. The thing that consumes her life, becoming one of them. From altering hand me downs to fit the new image she longs for to dreaming of what could be.

When she finally sees her chance, Sarah leaps for it, along with a new moniker to be known by. Sarah Cummings becomes Serena Cuthbert and the lies pile from there.

When two lives begin to war for her heart will the lies fall and a beautiful new truth be unveiled in Sarah or will she lose herself forever and be known as Serena Cuthbert with the fiction she has created fully intact and consuming?


Hope your weeks are going on splendidly!

Sweet Tooth Friendly

This review is for the second novel in the Weddings By Design series by Janice Thompson.

*The Icing on the Cake*

I was superbly excited to get the second book in this series. I have read many many novels by Janice and have been superbly thrilled with her writing. She has a way of blending so many different types of characters into a melting pot of personalities and walks of life. While still leaving you feeling like they are all connected somehow no matter the background. I always eagerly turn that first fresh page and prepare to dip my toes into the pool of wonderment Janice creates.

Grab a steaming cup of coffee, tea or cocoa, whichever your heart prefers ;) and join me on this delicious journey.

My only complaint, Ms. Thompson, is the fact that your writing is so descriptive I could almost smell the baked goods and it made me hungry more than once while reading this newest novel!

Scarlet Lindsey works hard for her living but it isn't a hardship in any way. She gets to do what she loves and she always smells good. Her Aunt Willy (who is a book all unto herself I think) has financed her long held dream of opening her own bakery and she is determined that backing will not be in vain. Aunt Willy means well even though she can have a double edged sword as a tongue when speaking to Scarlet.
Besides that fact, things are looking pretty good as far as Scarlet is concerned. Single she might be (and not necessarily loving it) but her bakery now resides in a primo spot on Galveston's most popular street and has the famous Rossi Pizzeria as it's nearest neighbor. She has a wonderful personal and working relationship with famed wedding planner, Bella Neeley and business is booming for them both! There is a bit of a mess, not of the baking kind, however, when Bella's very handsome brother, Armando appears in Scarlet's life. Should she risk everything to follow her heart or stick to the old tried and true? Learning to step out in faith might be Scarlet's greatest lesson to date.

What more can I say about this awesome series besides go on and read it for yourself! I commend your exceptional talent with words, Ms. Thompson!

Undeniably Yours Blog Tour

Today we have a blog tour post for another great novel by Becky Wade!

This one is called "Undeniably Yours" and it was a great read!

I really liked the cover on this book and the snippet on the back really draws you into wanting to read the book.

Part of the reason for that for me is my love of horses and a big part of this book is the theme of a horse farm.

Meg Cole is living in a hazy time in her life. Her father has quite unexpectedly passed away and she has been handed the reigns of the family company. The company that she never wanted to have to head in the first place. So while dealing with the death of a father she never really knew, she has to deal with firing people and closing things down that aren't bringing in a profit and that she doesn't want to deal with.

Her morning of firing isn't about to get any easier as Bo Porter, the thoroughbred racefarms manager, is her next "fire". Even though she tries her best to explain to him she will be shutting the farm down, Bo is a stubborn boy and asks for time to turn a profit first.

Meg already regretted having to have this day and finds herself reluctantly agreeing to giving him time to do so. And thus begins the story of Meg and Bo.

I liked how the Thoroughbred farm was used as a healing tool for Meg's anxiety. It was all tied in to the story so well that it meshed amazingly. Watching the tentative relationship form and then have such a shattering blow hit her just when she was beginning to trust really draws you into the story and kind of sets you on edge wondering how this is all going to play out.

See for yourself by picking up a copy.

Postcards times 2 Blog Tour!

Today for review we actually have a double whammy! This includes the first AND second book in the "Postcards from Misty Harbor Inn" series.

I have never had the pleasure before this of reading anything by Evangeline Kelley but I am glad I picked these up.

The one thing I wasn't that thrilled with was the cover choices for the books. While they are pretty watercolor style covers they dated the books a bit I thought. Personally, I am big on what covers look like and have had good ones draw me into picking up the book which sometimes leads to discovering a great story! With that said the story behind the covers is very good!

With book one "Seaside Harmony" we meet the three sister we will come to cheer on as the book progresses.

Ms. Kelley's writing style is very descriptive and I could almost imagine my toes sinking into that sun-warmed sand and the sound of waves crashing down the beach. The tightness of your nose as it gets slightly burned from a happy afternoon spent at the beach and sticky salt spray sticking to your skin as you trudge home sun sated and happy.

If you can make someone imagine they are in the setting you describe then I call that a success!

~~~~~~~~~~ (Seaside Harmony)~~~~~~~~~~
Caroline Marris is pulled toward Nantucket Island for a getaway with her two sisters.

What they don't realize is that more than just rest and fun await them on this island.

When she convinces them to buy an old inn their mother held dear, a mystery waits within it's walls.

The question remains whether or not easily distracted Caroline can be kept on track long enough to make this new dream a reality?

~~~~~~~~~(Sunflower Summer)~~~~~~~~~~

Misty Harbor Inn is finally having it's official opening and Gracie (middle sister) has a huge decision she needs to make in the midst of all of this.
Opening this Inn definitely comes with a learning curve. They not only need to learn how to run their new business venture they have a lot to learn about themselves and each other.

The mystery continues in Sunflower Summer with more heart and sisterly bonding that the first book started.

I think that you will enjoy the story that both books blend together to tell!

Hope you all are having an amazing weekend!

*It Happened At The Fair* Blog Tour

Buckle up ladies and gents! We have a new book by Deeanne Gist!
It is called "It Happened At The Fair"!

So for anyone who is a fan of Deeanne's work you need to pick up this new one :)
If you have never read any of her work do yourself a favor and start!

I get so excited when I see that Deeanne has a new book out and this one was no exception!

As you can probably tell by the title this book is set back in 1893 when the Chicago World's Fair was happening.

I loved getting a glimpse of what it must have been like to get to go to the long ago fair and how people lived back then!

Cullen McNamara has put everything on the line for what he believes in. His inventions mean the world to him and he believes that not only can he make things better but that he can succeed with them. Thus the risk and the hopeful reward.

But when he tries to make his dream come true he realizes that the noise is sodeafening in the Machinery Hall at the fair that is absolutely makes talking with his potential buyers completely impossible. This could very well spell disaster for him and everything he wagered on this possibility of success.

Realizing that he must do something right away he comes up with the idea of hiring someone to teach him to read lips.

His intended teacher however really has no desire to participate in his tutoring.

Being taught to read lips translates into spending much time staring at her nice ones and Cullen soon finds himself completely carried away by his feelings for Della.

With so many things happening in Cullen's life and so many things at stake, what will fall away and what will remain?

To have those questions answered you must read the book for yourself! Which I recommend you do!
You can purchase a copy of this great book for yourself HERE.

Great job Mrs. Gist!!! Love it!

Love At Any Cost

Today's book review focuses on Love At Any Cost by Julie Lessman.
It is book 1 in The Heart of San Francisco series!

I like the fact of how relateable Julie's characters are. For me helps draw you into the story and care about what happens to the characters as they live their lives. That is the mark of a good story.
If you want to keep turning the pages to find out what happens and trying to read faster so you can then you know you have a good book in your hands.

Cassidy McClare thought that she had exactly what she wanted until she is rudely rejected by a man who was just looking for a fortune and could care less about who she was as a person.

Traveling west with the hopes of a happy visit with her cousins to ease her mind and heart, Cassidy settles into life in California. But it seems as soon as she starts to get her feet back under, that the best looking man she's ever met comes along and steals her already bruised heart. But Jamie is looking to marry well and that isn't something Cassidy can offer him.

Money, heartbreak, distrust, love and questions. It makes for a great novel! And Julie Lessman puts it all together seamlessly!

~Moonlight Masquerade~

We are going to talk about Moonlight Masquerade in todays post.

The first thing I have to say about this is that whoever named this was defintly in the groove when they came up with this title!

The title just paints such a vivid picture in your mind! Combine that title with the beautiful cover and you will be excited to pick up this great regency romance novel!

I am such a fan of regency novels that I was super eager to read this book!

It combines all the great things that make a book great. You have romance, you have mystery, you have excitement until the last page. I think that Ruth Axtell hit this one out of the park!

Lady Celine Wexham exudes quiet grace and elegance. She leads the life of a wealthy widow who moves in the upper crust of society with style. Even though she is now a British citizen she is French by birth and the British Foreign Office has reason to believe that she just may be a spy.

They feel she is in the perfect position to be doing just that and send in Rees Phillips, from their office, to pose as her temporary butler. His assignment is to find out is the beautiful widow is also a beautiful spy for Napoleon.

But what seems like a situation that should be cut and dried seems to become more complicated as Ree's gets to know the enigma that is Lady Celine.

Great book that I recommend especially if you enjoy Regency Romances!

Happy weekend all!

Weddings By Design

This is a review for the novel "Picture Perfect" by Janice Thompson.
It is the first book in the series by Janice, Weddings by Design.

I have loved all of Janice's books so far that I have read especially the ones with Bella Neeley in them!
I was super excited to see that she had a new series coming out and one that indeed included our favorite Bella!

This book was definitely not a source of disappointment at all and I loved how she weaved a new beloved character into the story while seamlessly adding Bella and her lovable and gigantic Italian family into the story!

This book had just about everything you could want from an old nemesis to a new love.

We follow Hannah McDermott along as she tries to find her feet running an ever successful photography business out of her own studio. While she may look like she has it all figured out, in Hannah's mind she has nothing figured. She is the last remaining unmarried daughter left in her parents house, seemingly clumsy at times and a handsome fellow photography who she sees as her fiercest competition. Throw in a crazy celebrity wedding, a beyond demanding publicist and a girl who just needs to find her joy in life again and you have Hannah. If she can just learn to let go and let God she just might find things she never knew she was looking for with people she might have otherwise considered one huge threat to her very way of life.

Sometimes letting go and learning to not doubt yourself all of the time is the best way to get ahead.

I really enjoyed this book overall and am eager to read the next one in this series!! Keep them coming, Janice!

Hope you all enjoy this book as much as I did!

Love Finds You in Glacier Bay Alaska

This review is for the novel "Love Finds You in Glacier Bay Alaska" by Tricia Goyer & Ocieanna Fleiss.

I really like all of the Love Finds you books and this one was no exception.
This book pretty much keeps you on your toes as you never seem to know what to expect as this story twists and turns. I like that you not only get to see Ginny and Brett's story but you get to see Ellie's story too so you have several different stories happening in one.
 It is a really interesting read and very unique the way she gets to read Ellie's story told through old letters.

Ginny Marshall is a an LA resident that is one step away from her dream of a recording contract and a handsome, successful boyfriend on her arm. The one thing Ginny can't seem to forget is the man she left behind when fame called her name. The one person left in the world who still holds half her heart.

Not understanding why she cannot let go of Brett Miller, she puts off her contract and travels to the wilds of Glacier Bay Alaska intent on closure so she can move on with the rest of her life and stop being constantly reminded of Brett.

What she finds in Alaska is far, far different than what she ever expected to find and a journey she isn't sure she is quite ready to take.

The Tutor's Daughter

This book review is for the novel "The Tutor's Daughter" by Julie Klassen.

I have to start out by admitting to being a super fan of Julie's books! As soon as I saw the email for this one and knew that she had a new book coming out I REALLY wanted to read it and very eagerly waited for the package containing this lovely new adventure to arrive in the mail.

Her books remind me so much of Jane Austin while definitely having her own unique spin on this lovely time period. The only annoying thing about this book is when you finish reading it and want so much more of the story or at least a new next book to dive into!

I cannot highly recommend The Tutor's Daughter enough. Even if you have never read one of Julie's books before I really believe that you will become just as a much of a fan of her work as I am almost as soon as you crack the cover!

She did such an amazing job keeping you guessing with this story line throughout almost the entire book. While reading I would find myself turning over the mystery in my mind trying to figure it the heck out.
I had many theories which all proved to be wrong but was still an excellent conclusion.

The great thing about Julie's books are how she so totally pulls you into the world that she has so lovingly crafted and you don't even realize how much you have concentrated so solely on the story until you come up for air or maybe a food break ;)

Emma Smallwood has found herself at a loss for how to deal with her father's seemingly endless sad moods since her mother passed away.

He is an excellent tutor, whom she assists, at running a boarding school for boys.

With their last pupil leaving to go on with the next level of his education they have no more students lined up to take his place and her father shows no interest in getting more students to fill the gaping holes in their lively hood.

Emma takes matters into her own hands and prevails upon herself to write a letter to the father of two of their previous students whom she happens to know has two younger sons who have never been sent to their school.

She has quite the shock when the baronet writes back inviting her father to be a tutor in residence so that his sons don't have to leave their mothers home.

Emma accompanies her father on this new quest but has no idea the mystery that shrouds the forbidden mansion that rises imposingly above the jagged cliffs or the old feeling that would be stirred for the Weston boys who did attend her fathers school.

Once again I have to highly recommend this novel and almost feel like reading it again myself!
