The Change

This book may be close to 500 pages but I still managed to binge it in 24 hour. While not entirely what I was expecting, this genre-defying book is easily a five star read! Harriett, recently divorced and let go from her advertising job, hasn’t been seen in a month. Her house especially her garden,…

Midnight Dunes

Two things I love about this series: it’s set in Texas and they can each be read as standalones. While each of the books is linked through certain characters, the stories are all completely different and it’s not necessary to read the previous books to get to know our main characters. However, it is fun…

Book Lovers

My third book by Emily Henry in 3 years and this is by far my favorite one! Remember Sandra Bullocks character in The Proposal? Yea that’s Nora. Uber successful and cutthroat literary agent. Her favorite things include her beloved Peloton and getting the best deals for her clients. Known as The Shark, Libby hasn’t taken…

Hotel Magnifique

One of my most anticipated new releases for Spring, was Hotel Magnifique. The hotel, where the story takes place, is magical. It shows up for just on day every and doesn’t repeat destinations for ten years. Once inside the hotel, patrons will get to experience two weeks of pure fantasy. The only catch is that…

Within days of arriving, they’re taken hostage and not everyone will survive the kidnapping.

The Night Shift

It’s New Year’s Eve and the last evening of the 20th century. Four teenage girls are still working at the local Blockbuster (throwback!). All but one of the girls, including their supervisor at the time are brutally murdered and the only suspect disappears shortly after the murders. Fast forward 15 years, Ella, the lone survivor…

The Book of Cold Cases

I’m a huge Simone St. James fan. I really enjoy her mixture of mystery with the references to paranormal. 40 years ago Beth Greer was tired and acquitted of the Lady Killer Murders. Even though she was acquitted, Shea Collins is the true crime writer behind the blog The Book of Cold Cases, which dives…

Lessons in Chemistry

Wow, what a fabulous debut story. Elizabeth Zott is logical, smart, and ambitious. These traits serve her well as a scientist, but don’t do her any favors as a women in the 60s. As one of the only women at Hastings Research Our main character, Elizabeth Zott is a brilliant scientist she’s roadblocked by the…

One Italian Summer

I read Rebecca Serle’s The Dinner List a few years ago when it was a Book of the Month pick and I loved it. Then In Five Years came out and once again, Serle was able to toy with my emotions once again. At this point she’s an auto-buy author for me and if you…
