This is an #ARC from Net Galley. I was very excited to read it. I quickly connected with Hannah, the bodyguard, and thoroughly enjoyed being in her head. She was witty, funny, relatable and underestimated. It moved along quite well and made me feel good. It was a sweet, closed door love story + a little danger. The forced proximity trope and “family forever“ brought to mind the movie “The Proposal“ with Ryan Reynolds. There you go! Happy Reading!

OK, the 4th book in the Secret, Book, and Scone Society cozy mystery series done & I‘m ready for my book tour review #ARC of the 5th. I love this series & characters & the fact that even when I only have dribs & drabs of time to read, they are quick reads I can grab & escape with. This one is good entry however, I‘m learning that newcomers to Miracle Springs should watch out so Nora‘s delightful bookstore & friends not be worth the move! 📚🤷🏻‍♀️

One word review - Lush

I really enjoyed this murder mystery and only managed to guess half of the reveal. This is a sedately paced murder mystery and not a fast paced thriller and for me that really suited the time period and the setting.

So, I‘ve been off the grid. The #manpanion and I have Covid. 😷I‘ve spent the last 5 days shivering 🥶 and whimpering under the covers. I‘m hoping my headache goes away soon so I can start reading this #arc
I‘m really looking forward to this one. It almost makes up for having to cancel a fun planned weekend down in Virginia with my sister (we had high ☕️, 🪓 throwing, and Maverick 🍿 on the agenda 😞).

Conrad is a human who can sense magic but not wield it which makes his job in a magical freelance police force difficult. Things get worse when he tries to rescue someone like him. And his secrets start to crumble around him.

The world was well established. Pace is quick. Characters were interesting. The humor is engaging w/ a LOT of pop culture.

Inconsistent action scenes. Tried to introduce too much & boo to blatant sequel hooks. 🌕🌕🌕🌗🌑

I love this author. She manages to turn a princess story into a nightmare in this one. I thought it was great.

#ARC #PublishesToday I‘m sorry to admit, I bailed on this one - a man awakes with amnesia in a post apocalyptic world. Premise had promise and writing was good but this story just didn‘t hold my interest. Every time I put the book down I had no desire to pick it back up.
I tried to speed read towards the ending, but even that didn‘t work.
4 bails so far this month. Two more books to go….. @TheAromaofBooks hope you‘re enjoying your vacation 💕

squirrelbrain Love the smiley little ❤️❤️! 5d
BarbaraBB You bailed on Deep Water. Do you think I‘d like it? I‘ve been meaning to read it for quite a while 5d
Cinfhen I think you might @BarbaraBB and of course I‘m happy to send you my copy 😘 5d

I‘m 10 hours into the audiobook and only at 38.8% completed. It‘s definitely a slow burn literary novel. Told from the perspective of an “outsider” looking back at her childhood & college days, remembering a trio of friends who were inseparable. There‘s an unsettling tone, more than just isolation or loneliness. It‘s gripping but requires time and attention. I find I can‘t do other chores while listening. #ARC #NetGalley

vivastory Sounds great. Still need to read her previous book. 6d

I started this last week but I wasn‘t feeling it. Now I spent two hours struggling to read more as it #PublishesTuesday but it‘s soooo SLOWWWW / im at 54% although I did hear it picks up towards the end 🤪#NetGalley #ARC

Megabooks I hate slow-paced books most of the time. 7d
