** Book Review ** TOGETHER AT LAST by Joanne Dannon



A great friends-to-lovers, best friend’s little sister story!

Amielle Warne was living the good life.  At only 26, she had her dream job for a big superstar and couldn’t have asked for much more, but a hit and run accident took it all away from her.  Now, months later, she’s still recovering and hoping to get back to some semblance of a normal life soon … until her childhood crush shows up and turns her world upside down again!

Ethan Cuthbert is back home for three weeks to set up a getaway in his old home for cancer patients.  He never expects to hear that Amielle is looking to use the house to start a new business!  Ethan has always crushed on her just as much as she has on him, but he respects her family too much to ever make a move on her.

Will spending this time together cause them to reconsider what they really want out of life?

** Book Review ** HEARTS ON ICE by Christy McKellen



A cute story that finds two unlikely people meeting at an inopportune time and changing their views on love!

Nate Taylor is just looking for a little peace and tranquility when he accidentally messes up his paragliding landing and smashes into Hettie Sampson’s property.  He’s really not in the mood to deal with it right now, but he can’t in good conscious walk away and leave her with damaged property, so he sets out to fix what he busted.

Hettie can’t believe her bad luck of having something threaten her livelihood in such a callous way, and of all things, to find out it’s a cop that did it!  The last thing she needs is him snooping around and discovering her secret!

Neither are looking for a relationship, but when they are snowed in together and the steamy chemistry between them is too much to resist, they set out on what it supposed to be a casual one time thing.  Before all is said and done, they are both thinking about more and missing the other by their side.

The USA Today bestselling author of Rainy Day Sisters returns to Hartley-by-the-Sea…

Childhood best friends Rachel Campbell and Claire West have not only grown up, but after fifteen years, they’ve also grown apart…

After her father left, Rachel had to dedicate her life to managing her household: her two younger sisters, her disabled mother, and her three-year-old nephew. When Rachel’s not struggling to look after all of them, she makes her living cleaning the houses of wealthy families—including the Wests, where a surprise now awaits her. . . .

A lifetime of drifting in other people’s currents has finally left Claire high and dry. First it was her parents, then the popular crowd in school, and finally her fiancé. Now she’s returned to Hartley-by-the-Sea to recover. But running into Rachel brings back memories of past mistakes, and Claire wonders if she now has the courage to make them right.

Soon Claire’s brother, Andrew, asks Rachel to keep an eye on Claire, which is the last thing either woman wants.

Once Upon a Royal Christmas

by Robin Bielman
Publication Date: October 20, 2016
Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance, Holiday



Synopsis: Colliding with a prince while walking four dogs isn’t how Rowan Palotay pictured meeting royalty, but then lately her life hasn’t gone according to plan. With one teensy tiny mistake, her job as a news reporter took a turn for the worse and now she’s lucky to have a small pet column in the local newspaper. Christmas is supposed to be a time of joy and magic, but she feels like she’s forever stuck on the naughty list.Prince Theodore Chenery is in Marietta shortly after the death of his mother to meet his grandparents for the first time. When an accidental run-in—literally—with Rowan leads to an unexpected friendship, he finds himself enchanted with the outspoken, feisty country girl. She’s unlike anyone he’s ever met and her special brand of kindness and honesty make it harder and harder to keep temptation away.

Giving into the passion and deep-rooted emotions between them, Theo and Rowan discover what matters most. But when their relationship makes worldwide news, Theo must decide whether or not to follow his heart or his royal duty.




“You okay?” the prince asked.

            “I’m fine,” Rowan said, pressing her shoulders back and raising her chin. “I’ve been hit with hundreds of snowballs.”

            “I’m not surprised.”

            “Excuse me?”

            “You strike me as good target practice.”

            She had no idea what to make of that comment. What a rude thing to say to someone who’d— “I just saved you from getting nailed by two snowballs and that’s what you say to me? Kind of insulting, don’t you think?”

            “I didn’t—”

            “You don’t even know me.”


            “And for your information”—she almost said “bucko” but caught herself—“it’s an honor to have been hit by so many snowballs growing up here. You don’t get snow where you’re from, so you wouldn’t know.” He came from a small state along the Mediterranean coastline known for its beaches and yacht-lined harbor, and where the sun reigned supreme year round.

            “May I speak now?”

            “If you must.”

            That earned her another arch of his brows. She’d probably be arrested for speaking so disrespectfully to him if they were in Montanique. But this was her home turf and he didn’t get to say whatever he pleased. Manners went both ways no matter who you were.

            “I meant it would be fun aiming for you.”

            She crossed her arms over her chest. That still sounded kind of harsh. Even though she was fun. “As opposed to aiming for…?”

            “Anyone else.”

            “I’m still not sure what—”

            “It was a compliment, Miss Palotay.”

            She shifted her feet. Okay, so maybe this meant he wasn’t holding this morning’s incident against her. “Call me Rowan.”

            “Call me Theo.”

            “Really?” She’d called him that in her head, but out loud was something entirely different.

            “It’s what my friends call me.”

            “Are we friends?”

            “You are wanting in my pants.”

            She threw her arms up in the air. He wasn’t serious. “What? I do not.”

            “You don’t want to take my pants to be cleaned?” His calm, casual tone irked her. Rowan bet nothing ruffled this man, or gave him pause. Confidence and poise rolled off him like a summer breeze in the middle of winter.

            “That’s not what you said. You said I wanted in your pants.”

            “You must have misheard me.” The small, entirely too charming, curve of his lips told her she had not misheard him at all, and he enjoyed teasing her.

            Two could play that game. “That’s too bad. I’m very good inside men’s pants.”
