Books on Sale: Three Lisa Kleypas Historicals at $2.99

RECOMMENDED: Secrets of a Summer Night by Lisa Kleypas is $2.99. Hold onto your wallets – that’s a terrific price for a Kleypas book (and there are two more) (I’m sorry) (I bought them, too).

This is book 1 in the Wallflowers series, and is a class boundaries romance (a specialty of Kleypas’ if you’ve read her backlist). One thing I loved about this book was that the heroine, Annabelle, has to overcome her own prejudices and it’s not so easy for her.

Book Review

Evil Librarian by Michelle Knudsen

Evil Librarian is a fun YA with a charming romantic thread (although I wouldn’t call it a romance novel, strictly speaking).  It’s a great read for Halloween, a holiday which in my mind extends through October and November and runs straight into Christmas, pausing only to filch a couple of pies from Thanksgiving. Evil Librarian…

Book Review

Destiny’s Captive by Beverly Jenkins

I have a love/hate relationship with Destiny’s Captive.  It’s a sheep in wolves’ clothing.  It has all the accoutrements of a story with a warrior woman character who takes charge but it’s actually a story about domestication, and it made me kind of depressed. So, here’s the set up:  Noah is an American businessman with…

Movie Review: The Book of Life

Carrie and I both saw The Book of Life his past weekend, and we both had a LOT to say about it, so behold: joint review. Joint Long Ass Review, in fact. Short version: the story is not as strong as the visuals, but this is a wonderfully warm and visually stunning movie and we…

Book Review

First Daughter by Susan Kaye Quinn

I liked the first book in Susan Kaye Quinn’s Dharian Affairs trilogy so much that I immediately binge read the next two books.  The first book is Third Daughter, and as you may guess the next two are, in this order, Second Daughter and First Daughter. I felt that the series got away from the…
