Inconceivable… that you could possibly experience the best and worst day of your life all at the same time?
Aidan has lost the love of his life. The woman who grounded him. Completed him. The mother of his precious twins. Now he’s not sure he can even put one foot in front of the other.
During his last precious moment saying goodbye at his wife’s burial, his phone chimes with an incoming text. Giving it an agitated glance he notices yet another text with the winning Powerball numbers. The very same numbers he’s been playing for years.
In this time of his most profound loss and sorrow…Aidan has won the greatest prize.
Did you hear that?! Was that a tree limb breaking in the graveyard? Or is it Aidan’s soul shattering.
He immediately moves his family to Bury, New Hampshire to start over. But the grand home he just bought comes with a dark history. The previous owners all mysteriously vanished. Now Aiden is receiving threatening letters stating “we are watching you”. The tension ramps up as you witness Aiden imploding.
Carter Wilson once again writes a gripping and suspenseful thriller that’ll keep you glued to the pages. In fact, I devoured it in one day. With short chapters that leave you hanging, I had no choice but to keep going…I simply couldn’t stop!
My third read by this author and looking forward to his next!

Bingo! This was just the 🔥 rom-com I was hoping for.
Aja just moved to Greenbelt, South Carolina. A more desirable, smaller town. A quiet place where she can more easily manage her daily struggles with anxiety. And today is no exception. A simple shopping trip to the local Piggly-Wiggly has Aja frozen in place, ironically enough, next to the frozen foods section in the midst of a full blown anxiety attack.
A simple gesture of kindness from a stranger.
Walker instinctively recognizes what’s happening to Aja and offers to simply stand by her side until the attack passes. He understands only too well, because he too deals with the same issue. And yet another chance encounter finds the two meeting again at the Wednesday night bingo event.
I‘ve noticed lately that many rom-coms have started delving into heavier topics such as mental health. Jodie Slaughter does an exquisite job of shining a light on many of the effects anxiety can have in someone’s life. The support and love from their families and friends was truly touching and heartfelt.
I loved both characters as they navigated their way towards love while also looking after their own hearts and minds. The attraction and chemistry felt oh so real.
Looking forward to reading more from this very talented author.
⚠️ be prepared…this is a very spicy rom com!

Do you remember your first kiss? Your first true love? Was it possibly the same person?💁🏻♀️
On a snowy Christmas Eve, Birdie runs into the woods in tears. She’d just lost her father and the thought of her first Christmas without him was too much to bare. And there, alone in the woods is an equally sad, lonely boy Chase. Seemingly heaven-sent, the two broken souls share this sad moment in time. And before going their separate ways, they share one magical kiss.
Now nine years later, Birdie is preparing to graduate from college. She’s fully aware her long-time college boyfriend is ready to propose any day now. Nagging questions begin to surface. Is that what she really wants? Has she truly put her first love completely out of her memories? And what will she do if Chase miraculously reappear when she least expects it.
What a tender, sweet romance this was. And yes, I Melted! I do believe in love conquers all. And of course a HEA. With a hint of spice this was the perfect romance to Melt your heart.
My first read by this author and thoroughly enjoyed her writing. The characters all had great depth and the chemistry between Birdie and Chase was palpable!

Another great addition to the Robin Lockwood series by Phillip Margolin.
Robin Lockwood has finally found her happy place. Her law career is taking off and she is engaged to the love of her life. You know what they say about things being too good to be true….
Well the unimaginable strikes. And Robin is left to put her life back together. The best way is to keep your mind on other things. Perhaps a new challenging client being charged with assault and kidnapping…just for starters.
I have been reading Phillip Margolin’s books for years. They are great lite legal dramas that you can escape into.
The chapters are short and you will be on the edge of your seat wondering how it’s all going to come together. Mr. Margolin weaves a twisty tale with a very explosive and satisfying ending.
Already looking forward to his next release.

Keep your friend’s close….
Philomena McCarthy is a young woman who’s fought an up-hill battle to become a police constable. Made even more difficult given her family history of doing business on the other side of the law. But not Phil! She takes things seriously. Even going up against one of her own police officers.
A domestic dispute sends Phil and her partner to the scene. While attempting to subdue the offender she inadvertently sets off a series of events that could cost her everything. Her career, her marriage, maybe even her freedom.
It just so happens the offender is a high-ranking police officer who has sworn vengeance. But Phil is determined to protect Tempe, the victim. Eventually, she ingrains herself into Phil’s life, becoming her new bestie.
But maybe there is more to Phil’s new best friend.
I enjoyed Phil’s character. She overcame a lot and blasted her way onto the police force against all odds. But then I found her making quite a few questionable decisions. But sometimes for these thrillers to work… you just have to go with it!
This is a stand-alone from one of my go to authors. Though not one of my favorite, I still enjoyed and devoured it in only a few sittings. Already looking forward to his next.
A buddy read with Susanne.
