Whimsical with a Perfect Twist

The Witch of Belladonna Bay by Suzanne Palmieri I was utterly enraptured by Suzanne Palmieri’s novel. This story is told with such embraceable Magic, like a pouring out of one’s soul; speaking of things like intuition and “shine” in a rather poetic prose. Byrd would occasionally speak directly to the reader, which was quite original,Continue reading “Whimsical with a Perfect Twist”

“Sweet Dreams” is the first Novella I have ever read! Again, Steena Holmes is a hit!

This is the first novella I have ever read, and I am officially seriously addicted. This is the author’s version of a TV mini-series! To pack such a wallop of information so extraordinarily interesting in under 40 pages was unbelievable to me. Lexi is running a new pastry shop called “Decadent Sweets”, which is next door toContinue reading ““Sweet Dreams” is the first Novella I have ever read! Again, Steena Holmes is a hit!”

Here’s to watching my next football game!

The One & Only – Emily Giffin I may not know much about football logistics, but Emily Giffin’s character Shea had me “getting” the game, more than I had in all the years of watching it myself at your typical football party.

Cavendon Hall by Barbara Taylor Bradford

I thoroughly enjoyed the shows “Downton Abbey” and “Upstairs, Downstairs”, so when I read the synopsis of this novel, I knew I would love it or hate it; by comparison. Bradford’s novel is its very own story of a family and their caretakers. Bradford weaves the web of lives, secrets and lies between Servants andContinue reading “Cavendon Hall by Barbara Taylor Bradford”

Social Death by Tatiana Boncompagni

Tatiana introduced us to a female lead character with plenty of; what many of us would consider “moral flaws”.  This made her very real to me, and not just some fictional character that was created on paper.  She was a very relatable character.  I liked her.  A lot. Cornelia “Clyde” Shaw is the new leadContinue reading “Social Death by Tatiana Boncompagni”
