2021 ended with this 💎! Character development, the excitement of the chase, difficult decisions and punchy dialogue reminds me how much I enjoy this series, despite the reputation of the author. Detective work and drama on a finer level, for the pleasure of this #bookworm. #recentlyread #nospoilers ❤️📚

Classic #romance novel. Angst, passion, doubt and the power of second chances. Since a wedding and a honeymoon are involved, it made me remember the anxiety and the relief associated with mine. And although the loose ends got tied up really neatly, I still feel like there was a lesson in this story. #bookspin BINGO progress for July. #recentlyread #nospoilers @TheAromaofBooks ❤️🐴

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! 6mo

👋🏻 Still here, still reading. Amid the 📦. 🙃🎉 A magical moving circus 🎪 full of black and white tents, a competition and a love story, all rolled into one. Intrigue and romance, adventure and interesting storytelling. And yet, amid all of this, although interesting, I wasn‘t 💯% there. 🤔 And I used to love the fantasy genre… 🤷🏻‍♀️ Still, glad I gave it a shot. #recentlyread #nospoilers #bookspin @TheAromaofBooks

TheAromaofBooks This is one I enjoyed better the second time I read it - I liked the story better when I knew where it was headed! 6mo

🙃😶 still here. Birthday girl is a bit distracted this month! But this find was an absolute delight. Courthouse drama like the best of them, and a questionable career choice becoming so much more, this eccentric cast of characters was a pleasure to read about for #bookspin BINGO! #recentlyread #courtroom #nospoilers @TheAromaofBooks ❤️🤩🎉👨‍⚖️

TheAromaofBooks Yay!!! 6mo

⚠️🙃 This is neither a June nor a July book, as I finished the last couple of pages July 1st. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Still, it reads like a high fantasy tale. An unlikely MC, an even unlikelier hero and a plot twist that *almost* made me throw the book across the room definitely kept things interesting. Also 🐲🐲. This story continues, so I might as well. #recentlyread #nospoilers #scifi #fantasy #dragons

It sure has been a journey in my #bookspin BINGO board. The latest foray was to Ireland 🇮🇪🍀 and a widow having to navigate life having lost her other half. Being recently married, the thought is unbearable, but this is told in such a quiet, atmospheric and painterly way, that it was enjoyable. Her choices (the good & the bad), her children and the growth in the characters was well done. Life moves on. #recentlyread #nospoilers @TheAromaofBooks

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! Great review!! 7mo

Sometimes you need a spunky 11 year old junior detective and a distilled version of a story to get back your reading mojo. Just popping back on to say I am still reading, still planning and still counting down to 💒!! #recentlyread #nospoilers #detective #mystery #bookhaul #awesomefind

This was a sweeping family saga, about pressure and responsibility, about life wanted and life that is real. It cannot be easy to grow up with these expectations, and it cannot be easy to deal with these feelings. Makes me realize how important developing relationships and interactions can be. It will stay with me. 3.5/5 🌟 #recentlyread #nospoilers #familysaga
