Review: Romance Abroad by Annie Seatonby Lynn Reynolds

Reviewed by Lynn Reynolds Please make sure to read the letter from the author. She reminds us that sometimes we forget that authors started out as readers just like us. She also reminds us how diverse other countries are – which is something I tend to forget. I also love to find out that I […]

Review: Dodging Machetes by Will Lutwickby Karin

Reviewed by Karin I really enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone who has an interest in the era of the Vietnam War. I give it 5 out of 5 stars. It’s a toss up whether it is a memoir or a memoir-cum-novel with a lot of poetic license. Either way it was a […]

Review: Persuade Me by Juliet Archerby Carla F.

Review: Starlight and Promises by Cat Lindler

Review: Starlight and Promises by Cat Lindlerby Keira G

Starlight and Promises in short, is fantastic. It has a feel of the older romances with the exotic locations and seafaring travel, but is fresh and fun. I simply loved how the romance developed on the way to where the expedition would start. The romantic timeline is a lengthy one – their romance does not […]
