Synopsis:

Itโ€™s Christmastime in Compass Cove and love is in the airโ€ฆ

With her well-connected Long Island family, an exciting job as a London art dealer, and a brilliant, attentive boyfriend, Natalie Millerโ€™s life was golden. Until it wasnโ€™t. No one knows about the anxiety that drives her, the loyalty forcing her to make impossible choices, or the secrets consuming her. Now back in Compass Cove, Natalie is fielding questions from her family about what brought her home and longs for the lifeโ€”and the loveโ€”she left behind.

University professor and aristocrat James Phillips prides himself on understanding people, so it mystifies him when the love of his life leaves Londonโ€”and himโ€”without explanation. When an opportunity to work at a small college in Natalieโ€™s backyard arises, James jumps at the chance to move across the pond, willing to do whatever it takes to win back the heart of the woman he loves.

Can the magic of Compass Cove at the most wonderful time of the year help James and Natalie find their way back to each other?

My ๐Ÿ“Review๐Ÿ“: 4 ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ

Sweet story. Loved the characters and the town of Compass Cove. Christmas described in this quaint little village was beautiful and the lore of the town and its past was original and engaging. I have not yet read the previous books in this series but having met the couples here in My Christmas Wish,. I’m looking forward to it. 

James and Natalie were a believable couple. I felt the chemistry and the love they had for each other. Despite the obstacles they faced, James was determined to get to the bottom of why Natalie left him so abruptly. I admit that the first chapters are a bit slow and as a result, I put this book down a couple of times. But once it started to move along at a steadier pace with a more engaging story, I could not put it down. 

There is a bit of angst, a lot of secondary character involvement, humor and a sweet, endearing ending. I definitely recommend this book to those who not just love romance but also small town holiday influence.

While I received an advance reading copy ofย My Christmas Wish,ย this is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. ๐Ÿ™‚

The Kipling family has returned for a Christmas celebration.

Brenda Stratton is shocked and, in truth, a little appalled that she and her roommate have been invited by their mentors to spend Winter break at a cattle ranch in the mountains of Colorado. Why would a family they donโ€™t know invite them to spend Christmas with them? People just donโ€™t do that, at least not in her experience.

Thomas Blackhawk has been asked by his employer to escort, and work with, a bunch of engineers coming in for three weeks to see if they can discover what is causing the contamination of a stream in the northern pasture. Theyโ€™ve only got a few months to get the problem cleaned up before the spring thaw.

Brenda and Thomas take one look at each other and the heat roars. Sheโ€™s too young for him and sheโ€™s only on the ranch for a few weeks. They need to ignore the flair of attraction and lust, if they know whatโ€™s good for them.

Apparently they do not care whatโ€™s good for them.

ABOUT SHIRLEY
ย 

What does a geeky math nerd know about writing romance?
Thatโ€™s a darn good question. As a former techy Iโ€™ve done everything from computer programming to international trainer. Prior to college I had lots of different jobs and activities that were so diverse, I was an anomaly.
None of that qualifies me for writing novels. But I have some darn good stories to tell and a lot of imagination.
I have lived in Colorado, Hawaii and currently Washington. Going from two states with 340 days of sun to a state with 340 days of clouds, I had to do something to perk me up. And thatโ€™s when I started this new adventure called author. Joining the Romance Writers of America and two local chapters, helped me learn the craft quickly and has been a ton of fun.
My family consists of two grown children, their spouses, two adorable grand-daughters, and one grand dog. My favorite activity is playing with my grand-daughters!
When the girls canโ€™t play with their amazing grand-mother, my interests are reading and writing, yay! I started reading at a young age with the Nancy Drew mysteries and have continued to be an avid reader my whole life. My favorite reading material is romance in most of the genres, but occasionally other stories creep into my to-be-read pile, I donโ€™t kick them out.
Some of the strange jobs I have held are a carnation growerโ€™s worker, a trap club puller, a pizza hut waitress, a software engineer, an international trainer, and a business program manager. I took welding, drafting and upholstery in high school, a long time ago when girls didnโ€™t take those classes, so I have an eclectic bunch of knowledge and experience.
And for something really unusualโ€ฆ I once had a racoon as a pet.

Check out the Author: Piper Rayne

Synopsis:

I broke the cardinal rule and slept with my sisterโ€™s best friend.

Granted, Iโ€™d just found out that I was now a single father to a three-year-old little girl and was low on willpower.

It should also be noted that thereโ€™s been sexual tension between us for years. Thereโ€™s no way it would be a surprise if anyone in our small town found out. That is if we were telling people, which weโ€™re not.

Weโ€™re in agreement to keep our affair a secret, especially since neither one of us do relationships.

Youโ€™ve probably figured it out already, but things didnโ€™t go as planned.

My Review: 4 Stars

Oh, how I love the Greene Family! From the first book, I was invested in each character’s happily-ever-after. My Sister’s Flirty Friend is Jed and Molly’s story. To be honest, from the beginning, both these characters were not my favorites. I felt no connection to them. I truly can’t put my finger on one reason why since there were a few. Unfortunately, while I enjoyed the book as a whole, it felt rushed and I was disappointed in how Jed and Molly are moving into their future. That said, my disappointment is based on my preferences; what I look for in a perfect read. I don’t want to say anything that will spoil this story for you. If you have been Jed’s number one fan from the beginning, then I believe you will love this book. 

Truthfully, what I loved most about Jed and Molly’s book was Emilia. She, along with the rest of the Greene family assured I would enjoy this latest addition to the Greene Family. So, while I had some issues with the book, I did enjoy revisiting with the Greene Family. And of course, Ethel and Dori’s matchmaking antics are always fun.

As always, I look forward to the next book in the series. If you haven’t read any of this author duo’s book, I suggest you give them a try. Their other family series featuring the Baileys is amazing and a great series to binge.

While I received an advanced reading copy ofย My Sister’s Flirty Friend,this is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Synopsis:

In gorgeous Hopley village snow is falling and twinkly lights are going up but Holly Hanwell feels anything but Christmassyโ€ฆ

Itโ€™s meant to be the most wonderful time of the year but thirty-year-old Holly Hanwell doesnโ€™t really feel like celebratingโ€ฆ not after the bombshell news her boyfriend is leaving her to have a baby with someone else. So Hollyโ€™s organised a quiet Christmas in her cosy little house and plans to avoid the traditional village festivities, and anything resembling a man, at all costs.

That is until she bumps into sexy newcomer Edward. He recently bought Christmas House, at the edge of Hopley, but the renovations on the crumbling building are more than heโ€™d bargained for. Sheltering from the snowy weather in the warm village cafรฉ, Edward makes Holly laugh over delicious mugs of hot chocolate, topped with cream and sprinkles. Despite the spark between them, Holly knows she needs to protect her already fragile heart and sheโ€™s determined NOT to fall in love this Christmas.

But holiday magic works in mysterious ways and they keep crossing paths โ€“ at the nativity show, the carols, gift shopping โ€“ and then a festive crisis at Christmas House unexpectedly brings them together. Yet just as Holly realises her feelings are growing for handsome but complicated Edward she discovers a secret from his past which makes her question everything she thought she knew about himโ€ฆ

Will Holly and Edwardโ€™s December romance be over before itโ€™s begun? Or will this be a Christmas to remember?

A completely addictive, feel-good Christmas read! Perfect for fans of Trisha Ashley, Sarah Morgan and Carole Matthews.

My ๐Ÿ“Review๐Ÿ“: ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ

Tracy Rees is a new author to me. I’m happy to have come across this book for several reasons, including I found a new author that appeals to me. Second, I love, love this cover! The artwork is bold and picturesque and very eye-catching. That was in fact what first caught my eye. After reading the synopsis, I new I was definitely going to read this one.

The Little Christmas House was an emotional holiday romance with flawed and lovable characters that I could not help but stand behind and cheer them on to their happily-ever-after. The romance development is slow and careful. Neither Edward or Holly are looking for romance. They are both only trying desperately to enjoy the holiday. Each has their own reasons for why; but with a nudge from unsuspecting characters, Holly and Edward find something much more poignant than Christmas itself.

I don’t want to go into details because you will want to experience this sweet, heartwarming Christmas romance on your own without any spoilers. I will tell you that there is some angst, heartache, wonderful secondary characters, a cleanly written storyline, and a beautiful ending. You truly can’t depend on the synopsis to lead you into this story; there are moments of unsuspecting fun. For me this was a well-rounded Christmas treasure that I would definitely read each year. In addition, The Little Christmas Househas one of my favorite holiday covers!

While I read an advanced reading copy of this book, this is my honest and unbiased revue and I thank you for taking the time to read it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Synopsis:

Heโ€™s willing to risk his life to save others.
Is she willing to risk her heart on him?

ย 


Morganโ€™s late husband was a daredevilโ€ฆand now sheโ€™s a widowed single mom. All she wants now is to set up a stable life for herself and her son in the small town of Pine Hill, Kentucky.

Andrewโ€™s a firefighter who thrives on the rush of saving others. His secret dream is to become a smokejumper and fight raging wildfires across the country. But itโ€™ll mean leaving his hometown and the people who rely on him.

Morganโ€™s son looks up to Andrew, and Morgan canโ€™t help but notice how good Andrew is with him. Meanwhile, Andrewโ€™s torn between his ambition and his growing attraction to Morgan. They both have choices to make about their futureโ€ฆand about each other.ย 

My ๐Ÿ“Review๐Ÿ“: ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ

I enjoyed this book so much that after I finished reading it, I purchased the previous two books in the series. I enjoyed those books as well. Give me a warmhearted, all-the-feels, emotional Christmas romance set in a small town and you’ll find me first in line. I know I’ve said this in so many of my reviews but I’ll say it again….Christmas doesn’t last long enough for me to read all the holiday romances released for the season so I start reading them in September. There are so many wonderful Christmas romances available, it’s impossible to read all the ones I want in one season. But I try anyway.

Wrapped Up in Christmas Hope was the first book I read from this author. The story has a good reading pace and a slow development of the H/h relationship. When you meet the two protagonists in this book you’ll understand why they each were so careful with protecting their hearts. Hence the reason for keeping a distance. Or at least trying to.

Both Andrew and Morgan were strong characters and while I liked them both, Morgan was a touch standoffish at first. I couldn’t blame her for that, though.

The premise of the story is one that I found interesting however, because of the angsty plot, I wasn’t able to predict what would happen in the end. The ending was good although, I wished there was an epilogue. I wanted to see for myself how things worked out. I hope I’ll get a glimpse of their lives when/if there is another book in the series. And I can promise you that I will be looking out for that in the future.

While I received an advanced reading copy ofย Wrapped Up in Christmas Hope,ย this is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. ๐Ÿ™‚

My ๐Ÿ“Review๐Ÿ“: 5 ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ

I really wish I can give this book more than five stars. While I read so many books that I truly enjoy, The Closer was extra special. Unique and original with characters that are flawed but so, so lovable. Cooper is unsurprisingly sitting at the top of my book boyfriend list. McKinley’s character traits unravel as you read on. At the beginning, I didn’t think I would love her as much as I eventually did. She is something else! She makes you wonder what it would be like to be in her shoes. Mac is strong and independent to a fault. But she was no match for Cooper and his determination to be her hero, even if she ended up being his. 

There is so much to love about this book. The writing is perfect in every way. The pace is pretty fast and you will be at the end before you know it. I wanted more. You will cry and be frustrated. You will probably be mad at some point as well. But the best emotion you will experience is laughter. Not only from Mac and Cooper but Pops will have you in stitches. And let’s not get started with that amazing epilogue. 

If you only consider one book recommendation from me, this is the book you must read! I promise you won’t be disappointed. This author has gotten better with every book she has written and I anticipate what she’ll write next with eagerness.

While I was given an advanced reading copy of this book, this is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Synopsis:

Sheโ€™s fallen for her own fantasyโ€ฆwill a real future with him be enough?

Bored by years of underwhelming dating experiences, copywriter Grace McGovern combines her love of Christmas and her longing for romance into the ultimate romance novelโ€”where the heroine is swept off her feet one Christmas by tender, thoughtful, romanticโ€ฆand utterly unrealistic dates. When Grace has a chance meeting with an attractive man, sheโ€™s charmed by their conversation and fun datesโ€ฆuntil warning bells jingle. He couldnโ€™t be taking cues from her book, could he?

Engineer Owen Ellis has always been more comfortable with computers and coding than with women. After claiming he was boring and unromantic, his last girlfriendโ€™s bitter parting gift was a cheesy romance book hurled at his head. When he meets a woman whose warm smile and conversation intrigue him, Owen is ready to try again but knows he needs to up his game. Whatโ€™s the harm in borrowing a few ideas?

Can the Christmas magic last forever, or will their relationship dissolve into another ho-hum holiday fling?ย 

My ๐Ÿ“Review๐Ÿ“: 5 ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ

Do you know how every once in a while that one book comes along that you know will stay with you for a long time? For me that “book” doesn’t come often enough. Please don’t misunderstand that I am not satisfied with the books I read. Yes, there are some that I could’ve passed on but for the most part I enjoy the majority. That said, that one one special, memorable book is indeed rare. For me, Twelve Dates of Christmas hit that mark. This book was brilliant. Everything I look for in the perfect novel was there within the pages of this book. If you read the blurb, you don’t need me to summarize it for you.

While I did indeed love the premise, it was the characters that completely won me over; especially Owen. Oh. My. Goodness! Where has Owen been my whole life? Why can’t authors write more imperfect, shy, considerate heroes into their stories. We all love the adonis but reading about Owen was a true breath of fresh air. I want more. I fell completely in love with his character. The only disappointment I had with this book was that I wished there was an epilogue. I wanted to see more of Owen and Grace.

Twelve Dates of Christmas is a sweet, endearing, heartwarming and humorous Christmas romance and I highly recommend it! This author is a brilliant storyteller!

While I received an advanced reading copy of this book, this is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. ๐Ÿ™‚
