Blog Tour: Review-Jill Shalvis’ Rainy Day Friends

Blog Tour: Review-Jill Shalvis’ Rainy Day Friends

Jill Shalvis’ books always put me in a happy place and when I was given the opportunity to participate in the Rainy Day Friends blog tour, I couldn’t pass up the chance! Rainy Day Friends is the second book in the Wildstone series, but is very much a standalone novel. We have really great character development. Lanie Jacobs is a widow and is in search of getting away from it all. She’s tough and wants to protect herself which makes perfect sense since her husband turned out to be liar and a cheater. Lanie is also a bit shy, but a loyal friend. You’ll like her a lot! Then we have Mark Capriotti, Air Force veteran who is now the local police force. He’s fun and he also has his… Read more »

Blog Tour: Review-Noelle August’s Rebound + Giveaway

Blog Tour: Review-Noelle August’s Rebound + Giveaway

Noelle August’s Rebound is the second book in the Boomerang series and if you haven’t read the first book, Boomerang, it’s not necessary to enjoy Rebound. August doesn’t touch up events from Boomerang though I admit, had I read it, I would have perhaps had a better understanding of Alison and the whole concept of Boomerang as a company. We have good character development despite the fact it’s a bit weak in some areas. Our heroine is Alison Quick and if you’ve read Boomerang, you probably hate her for what she did to Ethan. I can honestly say, give her a chance because you’ll get to know her and realize why she does what she did. I liked her and she has this tough girl attitude but it’s an illusion… Read more »

Blog Tour: Review-Charlee Fam’s Last Train to Babylon + Giveaway

Blog Tour: Review-Charlee Fam’s Last Train to Babylon + Giveaway

I’m always a bit unsure about books where suicide is part of the plot because it can be a wonderful read or just an emotional drain where you can’t get out of an emotional funk. I really enjoyed Charlee Fam’s Last Train to Babylon and am really glad I was able to participate in the blog tour. We have good character development. Our main character is Aubrey Glass and she’s your typical adult, fresh out of university, and is struggling with everyday life. She reluctantly goes home where she has to come face to face with her teenage past. We have several secondary characters that play a vital role including Rachel, Aubrey’s childhood best friend. While we don’t get to spend much time with Rachel in terms of the present,… Read more »

Blog Tour: Review- Katharina Hagena’s The Taste of Apple Seeds + Giveaway

Blog Tour: Review- Katharina Hagena’s The Taste of Apple Seeds + Giveaway

Originally published in German, Katharina Hagena’s The Taste of Apple of Seeds is a beautiful coming of age story where the secrets of the past are revealed and one woman grapples with what could have been. As for characterization, Hagena does a great job introducing us to a wide array of characters who play a vital role. Our primary character is Iris and she inherits a house she doesn’t want. Iris is very quiet and innocent. During her childhood flashbacks, we get to experience her naivety and her attempt to seem worldly to her friends. I liked getting to know Iris and hated the position she was put in. We then have Max who Iris calls the wimp and he’s a bit withdrawn, but as the story progresses we get… Read more »
