The Forever Girl (Wildstone #6) by Jill Shalvis #jillshalvis #fiction #contemporaryfiction #womensfiction #libraryloan

Susanne’s Review: There’s just something about Wildstone. Returning to Wildstone for her best friend’s wedding isn’t easy.  After all, it’s been several years and Maze walked away for a reason.  Leaving everyone behind broke her heart.  Once part of a foster family that included her estranged best friend Cat, baby sister Heather, and Walker, theContinue reading “The Forever Girl (Wildstone #6) by Jill Shalvis #jillshalvis #fiction #contemporaryfiction #womensfiction #libraryloan”

Finlay Donovan Knocks ‘Em Dead (Finlay Donovan #2) by Ellie Cosimano @ElleCosimano @MinotaurBooks @NetGalley

Kaceey’s Review: She’s at it again!   Finlay Donovan is a mystery novelist currently (well, almost always) in the throes of yet another writer’s block. The primary inspiration for her next book will come from her everyday life. Because Finlay’s life is in fact, just crazy enough to work as a piece of fiction! I believeContinue reading “Finlay Donovan Knocks ‘Em Dead (Finlay Donovan #2) by Ellie Cosimano @ElleCosimano @MinotaurBooks @NetGalley”

the Heart Principle by Helen Hoang @HHoangWrites @Dreamscapeaudio @librofm #contemporary #romance #fiction #bookreview #bookblogger

Kaceey’s Review: Oh my gosh. I went into this read expecting a fun romance. Yes, I heard there were some deeper themes involved. But truly I thought those would be a side note. Turns out it was the romance that took second stage. Anna’s long time boyfriend just asked or should I say presented herContinue reading “the Heart Principle by Helen Hoang @HHoangWrites @Dreamscapeaudio @librofm #contemporary #romance #fiction #bookreview #bookblogger”

Beautiful World, Where Are You by Sally Rooney #sallyrooney @librofm @MacmillanAudio #fiction #literaryfiction #bookreviewer

Susanne’s Review: What can I say?:  Sally Rooney has something that I don’t believe that many other authors have and what is even more spectacular is that she can put it down on paper.  She has a deep, innate understanding of life, love, friendships, and relationships, and that is intangible.  “Beautiful World, Where Are You”Continue reading “Beautiful World, Where Are You by Sally Rooney #sallyrooney @librofm @MacmillanAudio #fiction #literaryfiction #bookreviewer”

Count Your Lucky Stars by Alexandria Bellefleur @ambellefleur @avonbooks @NetGalley @lgbtqia+romance #loveislove #contemporaryfiction #fiction #bookreviewer #bookblogger

Susanne’s Review: Oh, Drat!  How I wanted to love this and count my lucky stars, but alas, Count Your Lucky Stars by Alexandra Bellefleur was not quite for me.  Stop the presses, however, as it wasn’t the plot or the characters I didn’t love, it was something else altogether..
