Holiday Wishes by Jill Shalvis

Holiday Wishes by Jill Shalvis

3.5 stars — This one started off really strong, and while I’ve only read 1.5 other books in this series, it was still nice to see all the characters that I’d already fallen in love with again.  I loved how we didn’t have to wait too long to find out what happened between Sean and […]

Breaking the Ice by Julie Cross

Breaking the Ice by Julie Cross

4 stars — Earlier in the year I read book 1 in this series and really enjoyed it, despite it being very different from YAs I usually read.  And so I was excited to see another book set in the town of Juniper Falls.  And this one was similarly engaging and yet SOOOOO different!!  Honestly, […]

Love on the Tracks by Tamsen Parker

Love on the Tracks by Tamsen Parker

4.5 stars — Well this was a whole bowl full of awesome!  It was kind of tailor made for me.  I mean, I’m not sure how many people know this about me, but I am an Olympic FIEND.  It’s my favourite sport (and I realize it’s not a sport, just like rainbow isn’t a colour, […]
