The Meeting Point by Olivia Lara @olilara_writes @NetGalley #romance #fiction #bookreview

Kaceey’s Review: I had somewhat of a love-dislike relationship with this book. Pull up a chair and I’ll explain. The premise grabbed me right away and knew it was a must-read for me! Maya wants to surprise her boyfriend who’s presently across the country in California on business. It’s Maya’s birthday and her surprise isContinue reading “The Meeting Point by Olivia Lara @olilara_writes @NetGalley #romance #fiction #bookreview”

When Sparks Fly by Helena Hunting @HelenaHunting @MacmillanAudio @NetGalley #bookblogger #romance #bookreview

Kaceey’s Review: Avery Spark and her sisters run an events hotel in Colorado. It’s Avery’s burning passion, and her sisters? Well, they support her dream and are all in with just one caveat…Avery must run the show. Avery’s personal life isn’t nearly as exciting as her professional life. She lives with her long time (male)Continue reading “When Sparks Fly by Helena Hunting @HelenaHunting @MacmillanAudio @NetGalley #bookblogger #romance #bookreview”

It Started with a Dog (Lucky Dog #2) by Julia London @JuliaFLondon @BerkleyPub @NetGalley #romcom #contemporaryfiction #bookbloggers #rottiepuppy

Susanne’s Review: Seriously Cute, though a Tad Predictable. A Ridiculous Lyft Share Ends with an Inadvertent Phone Swap and a Meet Cute. If only life worked out this way, for real!  Ha. When Harper Thompson and Jonah Rodgers inadvertently swap phones during a wild Lyft share, they of course start swapping text messages. The factContinue reading “It Started with a Dog (Lucky Dog #2) by Julia London @JuliaFLondon @BerkleyPub @NetGalley #romcom #contemporaryfiction #bookbloggers #rottiepuppy”

Cul-de-sac by Joy Fielding @joyfielding @randomhouse @NetGalley #Thriller #Suspense #Contemporary #Bookblogger #Bookreview

Kaceey’s Review: Oh what scandalous, delectable fun!   I just adore neighborhood books and this was among the best of them!  A shot rings out in the night. One neighbor is dead. Of course, everyone wants answers.  Although there’s a considerable list of characters in this book, Ms. Fielding did an amazing job of bringingContinue reading “Cul-de-sac by Joy Fielding @joyfielding @randomhouse @NetGalley #Thriller #Suspense #Contemporary #Bookblogger #Bookreview”

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”

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”

We Are the Brennans by Tracey Lange @tracey_lange @CeladonBooks #fiction #contemporaryfiction #literaryfiction #bookbloggers #bookcommunity

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”
