Hello Stranger

Katherine Center is an auto buy author for me. Things I love about her books: they’re normally set in Texas and they always give me all the warm fuzzies. She’s definitely a comfort read and as always, I was stoked to get an ARC of Hello Stranger. Sadie Montgomery, after hitting rock bottom, is a…

Shadows of Pecan Hollow

As a good Texas girl, I love books set in Texas! I’m so happy one of my favorite debut reads this year happened to be set in Texas! Shadows of Pecan Hollow is set in 1970-90s Texas, and is a wonderful story about a fierce woman and the partner-in-crime she can’t escape. This historical fiction/…

Vanishing Hour

I’m convinced I’ll love anything Laura Griffin puts out. She does such a good job of blending a solid mystery in with the romance, which makes her book page turners for sure. Plus her books are primarily set in Texas, and as Texas girl myself, I love that I generally am familiar with the areas…

Fate decided that London, Taylor, and Samiah needed each other, and now they’re the best of friends. We’ve already had Samiah…

The Bodyguard

Katherine Center is back! Ya’ll know KC is an auto-buy author for me, so when I got the chance to read her newest release The Bodyguard last fall, I put all my other reading plans on hold. Hannah Brooks is little, feisty, and going through some serious heartbreak after her mother died and her boyfriend/coworker…

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…
