Review: Happily Ever After by Elizabeth Maxwellby Karin

Reviewed by Karin It’s been a long time since I’ve enjoyed a book so much. It is laugh out loud funny. I really did laugh out loud. This is Maxwell’s first book, but I would definitely read another one, especially if it has the same voice as this one. The premise of this book sounds […]

Review: Love Water Memory by Jenny Shortridge

Review: Love Water Memory by Jenny Shortridgeby Karin

Reviewed by Karin This is a romance, but not your typical billionaire meets servant girl. While those are not my genre to read, I thought this would be more fun or intriguing. Perhaps I expected it to be more reminiscent of Eat, Pray, Love, because of the similarity of the title. No, it is not. […]

Review: Pastors’ Wives by Lisa Takeuchi Cullen

Review: Pastors' Wives by Lisa Takeuchi Cullenby Karin

Reviewed by Karin It’s rare to find a book so well written, with so much to think about. I give it 5 star out of 5 star. The beginning was slow going only because I wasn’t sure where it was heading. Then I stayed up very, very late to finish it. This is Cullen’s second […]
