A Cup of Autumn Melissa McClone

Description:

He thought he had the perfect plan…

When elite university professor Keaton Andrews walks into a meeting with the dean, he expects to hear that his tenure application is on track. Instead, his beloved department is cut. Regrouping in Silver Falls with family seems like his best option. One morning, he takes a risk and orders a pumpkin spice latte from the beautiful barista at the local coffee shop. Too bad she doesn’t seem to find him nearly as intriguing as he finds her…

Raine Hanover is no longer swayed by a charming smile, especially by a nerdy—and distractingly handsome—academic. She’s taking a break from romance and focusing on running her increasingly busy coffee shop. But when Raine is involuntarily put in charge of organizing the town’s Halloween bash, Keaton jumps in to help, and it’s not long before sparks, and kisses, fly.

As the leaves begin to fall, Raine wonders if she should risk taking another chance on happily ever after, especially with a man who has dreams and goals so far away from Silver Falls and her.

My Review:

I really liked this book it was so cute. I loved Raine she knew what she wanted and would stop at nothing to fight to get it, she was someone who would do anything for those she loved. Without giving about to much, Keaton was more of a stick in the mud but you see him grow in this book and even in the end he still continues to learn. I loved the friendship between the five girlfriends they seemed more like sisters then best friends. The author kept this book clean so it will be suitable for all readers. Overall all I really enjoy this story so fun and worth the read.

Christmas Eve Cowboy Diana Palmer; Delores Fossen; Kate Pearce

Description:

Snow is falling, and when it comes to love, so are these rugged, gorgeous cowboys, in a romantic holiday collection from three bestselling authors . . .
 
ONCE THERE WAS A LAWMAN * Diana Palmer
FBI agent Thomas Kincaid Jones has soured on love and Christmas, but Annalisa Davis could change all that. Except the lovely nurse isn’t looking to get involved with someone whose job requires a gun on his hip. And Tom has a case to solve that has nothing to do with love. Yet the spirit of the holidays just might spark a lifetime connection . . .
 
CHRISTMAS CREEK COWBOY * Delores Fossen
In Christmas Creek, Texas, folks go all out for the holidays, but Sheriff Calen Jameson is too busy commiserating about cheating exes with his best friend, Emmy Kendrick. Calen always thought their bond was too precious to risk, yet maybe it’s time to start making some changes . . . by firing up the heat with Emmy.
 
COMING HOME FOR CHRISTMAS * Kate Pearce
Lucy Smith thinks Santa has outdone himself when Caleb Erickson shows up at her B&B. In high school, Caleb was oblivious to her crush. But while they wait out a snowstorm, he’s discovering she may be the gift he never knew he wanted . . .

My Review:

Once There was a Lawman-So this story starts the book off strong!  So with this story even though they just met it seemed to just work. The author made it seemed liked they had known each other forever and it didn’t feel like the author was forcing it. I loved Annalisa she was feisty and she could hold her own she had the biggest heart for others.  I liked Tom he came off like a know it all at some times but his heart was int he right place! I would say this story out of all three was my favorite. 

Christmas Creek Cowboy-This story was so cute it had small town drama, it had best friends finding love and it had a cute baby with tons of surprises. I think in the end the only thing I was more of was Nessa and her story she felt like such a mystery that needed to be discovered. I really Liked Emmy she was a pistol. Calen he seem to have the towns problems on his shoulders but did not let that stop him from being a kind human to everyone. 

Coming Home for Christmas-This story was probably my least favorite out of all three stories. The story seemed more forced then organic. I did like Lucy she was full of sprit and a fighter but I just felt like she could have done better then Caleb. Caleb was ok but he came off very self centered. I also really liked Chip he was such a wise soul. Overall the book was a fun read and very quick read even with three stories. Each story does contain adult content that may not be suitable for all readers. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

The Texas Cowboy’s Proposal Debra Holt

Description:

They had a foolproof plan…until one little girl got involved.

Sammi Jo Burkitt’s formidable grandmother’s will is pushing Sammi Jo to the brink. Yes, the feisty cowgirl can keep the ranching empire known as Aces High, which has been the family birthright for two centuries, but she must marry her rival and stay married for three years as part of the deal. Say no, and Aces High goes on the auction block.

Beaudry Hawkes wants nothing to do with the high and mighty Burkitts. Until the day Sammi Jo shows up on his doorstep with a proposition no one in their right mind would refuse: wear her ring, then accept thousands of acres of rich ranch land and a tidy sum of three million dollars when they part ways. The windfall could change everything for his daughter’s future.

But eight-year-old Lacy is becoming attached to the idea of one happy family. Nothing short of a true marriage between the two can make her dreams come true. Can Sammi Jo and Beaudry find their freedom and love too?

My Review:

This story was cute. I loved Lacy she was so adorable in this book she was wise beyond her years for sure. I loved Sammi Jo as well she is not who she seems in a good way and she was a true pistol/fighter but she knew the most important thing in life and she knew that not everything come from money. I did not like Beaudry I just felt he was a big jerk and I felt like Sammi JO deserved so much more then him. I was a huge fan of Jaxson and Matt they had so much more sense and so much more sassiness they took a serious situation and had you laughing! Overall this was a fun book and semi clean.

What Remains True Nancy Naigle

Description:

An uplifting novel about three months that may change three lives—and lead to love—from USA Today bestselling author Nancy Naigle

Working at a little shop on Main Street in a small town is exactly the break that executive Merry Anna Foster needs following her divorce. She’s made a bet with her ex-husband that she can live on the amount of money she’s giving him in alimony. If she can do it, then Kevin will have to stop complaining and leave her alone. But after three months of this new life, will she even want to leave Antler Creek? 

Adam Lockwood, bull rider and owner of the local feedstore, is having the best year of his rodeo career. He’s also a bit distracted by the pretty new neighbor living in his old bunkhouse. But Adam has no time for matters of the heart. He’s got his future all mapped out, and that future doesn’t involve a woman just yet. It doesn’t involve parenting a little girl either. However, Carly Fowler still suddenly leaves five-year-old Zan—the daughter Adam didn’t know he had—in his care. 

Is it possible that the future holds a life even better than what Merry Anna and Adam had each dreamed of? One that includes both tenderness and even love—not just for each other but for Zan too.

My Review:I really like this author she has a way of getting to the heart and having you fall in love with some or all of the characters. It was very much the case with this book. I loved Merry Anna she had the biggest heart and she was so fierce and all about finding who she was while showing love to her new friends and neighbors. I loved Zan she was so cute and so wise beyond her years and had such a tenderhearted. I also loved Krissy and Tara everyone needs friends like them in their life. I went back and forth with Adam on moment I liked him and the the next I wanted to choke him. Y’all this book was just overall really good, it was just a really great read and I could not put it down. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

Stealing the Bachelor Sonya Weiss

Description:

Ann Snyder might have missed out on the “drop-dead gorgeous” gene in her family, but when it comes to business, she’s out to kick some serious butt. That is, until her skeezy manager’s “side business” has the FDA raiding her chocolate shop. Now Ann’s in huge trouble…and the only person who can help her is the adorkable guy who completely humiliated her back in high school.

Lawyer Eric Maxwell has been in love with Ann as long as he can remember. He was waaaay too nerdy to win a beautiful girl like her. But when Ann lands in serious hot chocolate, he offers to give her free legal services…if she’ll help him go from nerd-without-a-clue to bona fide bad boy.

And once the transition is complete, he’ll have everything he needs to prove that he’s the guy for her…

Each book in the Stealing the Heart series is STANDALONE: 
* Stealing the Groom
* Resisting Her Rival
* Stealing the Bachelor

My Review:

This is a new to me author so I did not read the other book in the series. However this book was really cute. While Ann had her guard up most of the book but she also showed her softer side as well. I liked all the sisters and there husbands they lost a lot but they also made a family and had each other for the tough times. Eric has a way of wanting to always come to the rescue of those he cares about but I felt in someways he come off as an enabler instead of helping his loved ones out. I liked him and I liked how the author made him more relatable then making him this knight and shining armor guy riding in to save the day and untouchable. I loved Noah and his antics with the sisters. Overall this book was a cute read an I would read it again.

Everyone’s a Critic Nikki Lynn Barrett

Description:

She’s a single mother struggling with abandonment. He’s a travel writer trying to get past a traumatic, isolated childhood.

Laura Feldmen never thought this would be her: a single mother at nearly twenty-seven. A former bully, Laura made people’s lives miserable. Now that the tables have turned, she finds out who her real friends are. Imagine her surprise when the people who support her are the ones she used to torment. Her father has given her an ultimatum: she has a year to find herself and not attach herself to imperfect men while raising her infant daughter.

Cooper Dawson comes to Cinnamon Bay on a mission. A travel writer, he’s eager to visit the beachside small town. His dream job is just within reach, but that changes when he meets Laura and recognizes something in her that he understands all too well.

Cooper’s the kind of guy Laura would have picked on before. Now she’s searching for redemption while he longs for a way to find his place in the world. Is it possible for two opposites to find healing together?

My Review:I feel like this author gets deep in emotions and then drags them out of your heart as you are reading and that was very much the case with this book. I felt so many emotions while reading this. I Liked Laura a lot she wanted to do right by her daughter and those people she hurt. Cooper had a rough go at things early in life and his story is so powerful, he was such an amazing read. This book was very good and I could not put it down. This book does have adult situations and may not be suitable for all ages. I will say the only thing I did not like was the end, I was left with so many questions. But if you know this author you know she is not done with a character and I am sure we will see more of Cooper and Laura. Also I loved Julian he’s got such a big heart and I can’t wait for his story.

Secrets of Their Past Allie Pleiter

Description:

Facing the past could change his future.

Veterinarian Neal Rodgers is in Wander Canyon seeking the truth about his past—not to rescue a litter of kittens under his next-door neighbor’s porch. But persistent single-mom Tessa Kennedy is impossible to ignore—especially when she uncovers a family secret of her own. Discovering the hidden facts of their histories could be the key to unlocking everything in this small town.

From Love Inspired: Uplifting stories of faith, forgiveness and hope.

Wander Canyon

Book 1: Their Wander Canyon Wish
Book 2: Winning Back Her Heart
Book 3: His Christmas Wish
Book 4: A Mother’s Strength
Book 5: Secrets of their Past

My Review:

This is one of those books that will hit I think most readers a little different. I really liked this book I felt like it go to the heart but also left you laughing in parts as well. I loved Tessa she was a forced to be reckoned with. She was a single mom to one and a mom to all. She had a big heart and set out on a mission to tell her towns story. Neal on the other hand keeps his cards close to his chest and finds it hard to let people in. I found the journey he took to find out who he was, was not easy but for many who read this story will find it relatable. I like that the author kept this book a clean read so that it will be suitable for all. Overall this is a fun read and takes you on a journey for sure.

Book 1: Texas Cold Case Threat

My Review:

This is one of those books you really can’t put down or you might miss something or so it seems. The author keeps you guessing for sure. So when reading this book I did it late one night when I couldn’t sleep right as the boom was coming to an intense part my dog jumped on me I about screamed, so read beware of your surroundings for sure. There was a big part in the book where I was so mad at Tack and wanted to jump into the pages and talk some sense into him oh my. I really liked Chelsey, she’s a fighter and while she made some not so great choices she knew what needed to be done. Overall I just really enjoyed this quick read and I’m the end I wanted so much more from these friends.  Grab this one and you won’t be disappointed!!

The Sugarcreek Surprise Wanda E. Brunstetter

Description:

Welcome to Sugarcreek, Ohio, where the Amish schoolteacher has a determined admirer. Tragically losing her parents as a child, Lisa Miller has grown up being afraid of loving and losing. She dedicates herself to teaching at an Amish schoolhouse and helping the grandparents who raised her, all the while avoiding the advances of newcomer Paul Herchberger. Paul enjoys antiques and meets Orley Troyer while looking for unique old milk bottles at yard sales. Orley and his wife offer prayers and advice as Paul tries to reach Lisa’s closed heart. But when secrets are revealed, will Lisa use them as an excuse to close herself off again?

My Review:I really liked this book a lot. I feel like when people think Amish they think they have a simple life and they don’t necessarily face the same things as the rest of us. In this book thats far from the truth. I really Liked Lisa and even though her faith was strong she struggled with fear of loosing those close to her she was strong and kept fighting. Paul he was a good guy with a big heart that needed healing, he too had a few things he needed to work out but with his faith in God and his willingness to ask for help he was willing to face things head on which is not always easy. I feel like my emotions were all over the place with this book you would be laughing in on page and then tears in another. I Liked that I was able to catch up with the Towers again in the book they are the sweetest couple and I was so glad to read more about them. Overall this is a clean read and I would recommend it to anyone.

Accidentally Perfect by Marissa Clarke

Description:

Workaholic Lillian Mahoney has given everything to her job. The hugely popular lifestyle show she helped create monopolizes her time, energy, creativity, and anything remotely resembling a life. But all it takes is the show’s womanizing, egomaniac star throwing a massive hissy on live TV to utterly implode Lillian’s career in a New York minute.

Now Lillian’s hiding out in the gorgeous and completely unknown seaside village of Blink, Maine. Out of gas. A stolen wallet. A broken heel. And worse, she’s somehow managed to completely piss off the town’s resident hunk, Caleb Wright. She’ll show that hot, grumpy single father exactly what she’s made of.

But Blink isn’t quite what Lillian expects—and neither is Caleb…or his feisty teen daughter she can’t help but love. And while her entire life and career are in shreds, Lillian might just discover what happens when she gives her bad first impression a second chance…

My Review:

So this is a new to me author and I have to say I really enjoyed this book. In the very beginning I will say I kind of rolled my eyes (I don’t read the descriptions). and thought oh great another rich girl story who’s untouched with reality. I was so far off base and I am glad I gave it a chance. Lillian puts her best foot forward in everything she does and was a totally hard head and would not let the words, no or can’t stop her. I liked how she seemed like she would take the world on and leave it in a better place. I liked Caleb even though in the beginning I would have liked to ask if his mama taught him any manners oh boy. The are quite a few sub characters that personalities just jumped off the pages and you really wanted to know more about them. Overall I really like this book and I don’t know if this is a series but I want to much for from the small town of Blink. I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
