Blog Tour: Review-Kate Meader’s In Skates Trouble

Blog Tour: Review-Kate Meader’s In Skates Trouble

I’m a hockey fan and when I heard about the Hot on Ice anthology, I was curious. When given the opportunity to participate in the blog tour about the anthology, I signed up. As some of you are aware, I adore Kate Meader’s writing and I couldn’t pass up the chance to read In Skates Trouble. Not only is it part of a great anthology, but proceeds of Hot on Ice‘s sales go to a great cause, Homes for our Troops. Also, In Skates Trouble sets the scene for Meader’s Chicago Rebels series, an all about hockey book series! We have good characterization. Addison Williams is a former plus size (a term she hates as well as I do) model who is done with being a trophy wife. She’s strong,… Read more »

Book Review: Gretchen Archer’s Double Up

Book Review: Gretchen Archer’s Double Up

Double Up is the sixth book in the Davis Way series and if you haven’t read any of the books in the series, it’s not necessary to enjoy Double Up. I do recommend you start with the first, Double Whammy or at least read, the fifth book, Double Knot so you’ll get an idea of who’s who and what’s going on. That being said, Gretchen Archer does a great job explaining certain events from previous books and of course, nothing I consider to be spoilers. I thought I knew everything there was to know about Davis Way, but Archer proved me wrong! There’s a bit of a time jump from when Double Knot ended and Double Up begins. Davis has been suffering from postpartum depression, even though she insists she’s… Read more »

Book Review: Deanna Raybourn’s A Curious Beginning

Book Review: Deanna Raybourn’s A Curious Beginning

I always enjoy Deanna Raybourn’s books. I’m a huge fan of her Lady Julia Grey series and when I found out she had a new Victorian series that was about a female investigator, I knew I had to read it. We have good character development in A Curious Beginning. Veronica Speedwell is a butterfly hunter and she’s interested in science. She’s also independent despite the fact she grew up sheltered. She’s also not afraid to speak her mind. I liked Veronica, but admit to loving Stoker better! He’s a natural scientist who is a reclusive and despite not having much money of his own, likes to help others out. I loved his grouchiness! He’s a bit mysterious, but unlike past Raybourn heroes, he’s definitely easier to read. We have a… Read more »

Book Review: Kendel Lynn’s Pot Luck

Book Review: Kendel Lynn’s Pot Luck

Kendel Lynn’s Pot Luck is the fourth book in the Elliott Lisbon series. Lynn doesn’t make it habit of revealing past Elliott cases and if you haven’t read the first three books in the series, it’s not necessary to do so in order to enjoy Pot Luck. We continue to have good character development. Often times, an author will forget that there are new readers to a series, but Lynn doesn’t forget. We still get information about Elliot’s love of hand sanitizer and why, but we also find out what Elliot was like when she was younger. I loved finding out about how she took a young woman under her wings and how that young lady followed in her footsteps. I liked the character growth as well as that of… Read more »
