The Charm Offensive by Alison Cochrun @AlisonCochrun @AtriaBooks @NetGalley #lgbtqia #romcom #fiction #contemporaryfiction #mentalhealth #bookreview #bookblogger

Susanne’s Review: So much more than a Rom-Com! Have you ever gone into a book expecting one thing and getting something else entirely?  Well, that is exactly what happened to me when reading The Charm Offensive.  I expected an LGBTQIA+ rom-com, and what I got was a book centering around acceptance, identity, mental health, self-esteem,Continue reading “The Charm Offensive by Alison Cochrun @AlisonCochrun @AtriaBooks @NetGalley #lgbtqia #romcom #fiction #contemporaryfiction #mentalhealth #bookreview #bookblogger”

Razorblade Tears by S. A. Cosby #sacosby @MacmillanAudio @NetGalley #fiction #mystery

Susanne’s Review: Justice, Revenge, and Vengeance.   Sometimes there is a fine line between them and such is the case in S. A. Cosby’s Razorblade Tears. If only I had loved this book.  For me, a lot was missing.  First, I did not feel a connection to the characters of Ike and Buddy Lee, whose gayContinue reading “Razorblade Tears by S. A.

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”

Susanne’s Review: Guilt, Secrets, Trials & Tribulations.  Life in an Irish Catholic Family.   Five years ago, Sunday Brennan fled her family, friends, and her significant other Kale, in New York and moved to Los Angeles.  She has been running ever since.  The morning she wakes up in an LA hospital after crashing her car intoContinue reading “We Are the Brennans by Tracey Lange @tracey_lange @CeladonBooks #fiction #contemporaryfiction #literaryfiction #bookbloggers #bookcommunity”

No Hiding in Boise by Kim Hooper @KimHooperWrites @Dreamscapeaudio @NetGalley #fiction #mystery #characterdrivenfiction

Kaceey’s Review: One of my favorite audios of the year!🤩  A mass shooting at a popular, local bar in Boise. That’s right, Idaho! Where violent crime isn’t supposed to be and has never been front and center. And without warning… there it was.  Cleverly told from multiple perspectives. Giving you a front-row seat, experiencing theContinue reading “No Hiding in Boise by Kim Hooper @KimHooperWrites @Dreamscapeaudio @NetGalley #fiction #mystery #characterdrivenfiction”

The Layover by Lacie Waldon @LacieWaldon #librarybook #audio #romcom #fiction

Susanne’s Review: Let’s hear it for this PG-rated Rom-Com! The Layover by Lacie Waldon comes highly recommended by my friend Jayme.  Based on her review, I requested the audio from my library and decided to give it a go.  Luckily for me, it was a winner. Ava Green is a flight attendant who is preparingContinue reading “The Layover by Lacie Waldon @LacieWaldon #librarybook #audio #romcom #fiction”

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”

The Last Guests by J.P. Pomare @JPPomare @mulhollandbooks @NetGalley #thriller #mystery #suspense #bookbloggers #reviewers

Kaceey’s Review: I’ve consistently been a huge fan of J.P. Pomare. I’m always guaranteed a clever, super-twisty thriller. Once again, this latest release was no exception.   Lina and Cain are barely getting by financially. They decide to use Lina’s lakeside vacation home as an Airbnb for some much-needed extra income. While Cain is all in,Continue reading “The Last Guests by J.P. Pomare @JPPomare @mulhollandbooks @NetGalley #thriller #mystery #suspense #bookbloggers #reviewers”
