Princess Ever After

Princess Ever After

On 1/31 CarolM wrote: Ms. Hauck captured us with the story of Nathaniel and his princess in Once Upon a Prince. King Nathaniel struggled with how to deal with the semi-independent Duchy of Hessenberg, until near the end when a descendant was discovered. Princess Ever After is the story of that princess. Regina is happy with ... Good book :)

The Headmistress of Rosemere

The Headmistress of Rosemere

On 1/15 CarolM wrote: The second in the Whispers of the Moors series is nearly as wonderful as the first. I did enjoy Heiress a bit more than this one, but that doesn't mean I didn't like it. I love Patience. I loved William. I loved little Emma and the other children. One of the children in particular seemed to be more ... Review: Headmistress of Rosemere

Stones for Bread

Stones for Bread

On 12/9 CarolM wrote: This book was well-written and well-researched. I read it quickly, but didn't enjoy it as much as I wanted to. I'm not quite sure why this is. Maybe I was expecting a bit more romance and I think it qualifies more as Women's Fiction. It's not chick-lit - too serious for that. I'll admit to skimming ... Review: Stones for Bread

Barefoot Summer

Barefoot Summer

On 9/2 CarolM wrote: I'm a sucker for a good Denise Hunter book and I'm sure a paper copy of this one is going to find it's way on to my shelves sooner rather than later. Especially given how late in the night I kept flipping through the Kindle pages. Ms. Hunter doesn't disappoint. Madison and Beckett are wonderful - wonderfully ... Review: Barefoot Summer

Intentional Walk

Intentional Walk

On 7/30 CarolM wrote: When I saw this book available on BookSneeze, I jumped at it. My husband is a life-long Cardinals fan [both of his parents grew up in St. Louis and he still has family there]. I'm a more recent convert, but still well over a decade. I grew up in Phoenix, before there was baseball there. We lived in St. ... Review: Intentional Walk

Waiting for Morning

Waiting for Morning

On 4/30 CarolM wrote: I believe this is my first book by Margaret Brownley. I have several but haven't had the chance to read them. Though I haven't read the first book, I didn't feel lost or like I needed to read it to understand this one. Having grown up in Phoenix, this had extra appeal for me. Molly is spunky and resourceful ... Review: Waiting for Morning

Isle of Shadows

Isle of Shadows

On 1/14 CarolM wrote: Ms. Higley immerses the reader in ancient Greece, complete with intrigue, murder plots and the saving power of the one true God. The characters were well formed – flawed, real, heroic – while the plot was well-thought out. Twist and turns catch the reader off-guard [in a good way] and the ultimate ...

Right Where I Belong

Right Where I Belong

On 12/29 CarolM wrote: This is the third book in this series by Ms. McGee and the third of her books I've read. I picked up the first book, First Date, last year but didn't realize at the time it was YA. It wasn't an issue, but I was a big shocked. This one, of course, I went into knowing mostly what to expect as far as that's ... Review: right where i belong

Sneak

Sneak

On 9/8 CarolM wrote: I tried to read this book and just couldn’t finish it, but not for the usual reasons. It wasn’t poorly written or anything of that nature. When I requested it from BookSneeze, I didn’t realize it was YA or book 2 in a series. Neither particularly bother me. I read YA from time to time and mostly ... Review - Sneak

A Path Toward Love

A Path Toward Love

On 8/28 CarolM wrote: Cara does a wonderful job of bringing us into Katherine's world - showing us what she's dealing with now as a woman trying to make it in a man's world a hundred or so years ago. She also does a skillful job of showing us Katherine's past - she's a widow with marriage she doesn't really want to talk about. She ... Review - Path Toward Love

Starring Me

Starring Me

On 6/20 CarolM wrote: I picked up Ms. McGee’s debut novel, First Date, sort of by accident. I read the back cover and thought it looked interesting but didn’t realize that it was a YA novel. But I do like a good YA from time to time and I enjoyed her first book. Her sophomore effort, Starring Me, takes one of the strong ... Review: Starring Me

Covenant Child

Covenant Child

On 5/6 CarolM wrote: I'm not sure if this is my first book by Blackstock or not, but it won't be my last. Lizzy and Kara are twins - heirs to a fortune of near Bill Gates-like proportions. But their young lives are marred by tragedy from the beginning. Their mother died when they were but a few weeks old. Their father eventually ... Review: Covenant Child

Blue Moon Promise

Blue Moon Promise

On 2/6 CarolM wrote: I loved this book! I finished it an afternoon [even though I was on drugs that make me sleepy due to surgery - I could have slept, but I couldn't because I had to keep reading!] and am looking forward to the next one in the series. I have several of Ms. Coble's books on my bookshelves, but I think this ... Review: Blue Moon Promise

Daddy Dates

Daddy Dates

On 1/17 CarolM wrote: Written by a man with a simple goal ["Don't screw up"], Daddy Dates should be required reading for any man with daughters. My husband already does a variation* of what is talked about in the book - but my oldest is just now ten. As she [and her two sisters] grow up, he'll take them on official dates, ...
