Audio Review: Inheritance by Katharine McGee

Audio Review: Inheritance by Katharine McGee

I have a confession to make. I don’t typically read series novellas. Usually I skip them and only read if I’m super invested in the series. Inheritance by is a prequel novella to her series which finally gives readers the full inside scoop of the infamous graduation party night. This night is the catalyst for […]

Review: Blame It on the Brontes by Annie Sereno

Review: Blame It on the Brontes by Annie Sereno

Cute, but extremely predicable second-chance romance. Blame It on the Brontes by is about a woman who returns home to uncover the identity of an author who takes historical classics and turns them into highly-rated smut novels. I’ll be honest, I was intrigued by the premise of this story, however the execution fell through. The […]

Audio Review: Reputation by Lex Croucher

Audio Review: Reputation by Lex Croucher

One reviewer said that this book is “Mean Girls meets Bridgerton,” and I have never seen a more accurate description/comparison for a book. Reputation by is a Regency-era inspired book that reads more like a contemporary YA. I don’t typically read contemporary YA, though sometimes the drama is compelling enough to keep me engrossed as […]

Loved returning to Spark House! Starry-Eyed Love by is the second book in her contemporary romance series featuring the Spark sisters.

Review: The No-Show by Beth O’Leary

Review: The No-Show by Beth O’Leary

Cleverly written, The No-Show by introduces readers to three women who have little in common except that they are all stood up by the same man on Valentine’s Day. On the surface, this book seems to be a women’s fiction centered around our three main characters as they delve into their own lives and relationship […]
