Review: The Librarian's Passionate Knight

The Librarian's Passionate Knight The Librarian's Passionate Knight by Cindy Gerard
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This book sounded a lot better than it actually turned out to be. It was an okay read, but nothing spectacular.

Review: Love Everlasting

Love Everlasting Love Everlasting by Tracie Peterson
My rating: 0 of 5 stars

This book was bad enough I only got through 18 pages. I just couldn't stand the heroine.

"Goodness, but this was enough to put a person into a state of apoplexy, although she'd never been in one before and really wasn't at all certain what the symptoms would feel like".

I'm not going to waste my time reading 317 of her trying to decide between two men courting her.

Review: A Stone in the Sea

A Stone in the Sea A Stone in the Sea by A.L. Jackson
My rating: 1 of 5 stars
     

Edit: I've had to reduce my rating to one star because it's got a cliffhanger ending. I can't find out what happens without buying another blasted book!!! And the series has or will have up to 6 in it. I won't be FORCED to buy another book simply because the author puts a cliffhanger on the end. Ticking off your readers isn't the way into this reader's wallet.



I read this and enjoyed the story, but I have problems with it. It does have, eventually, a lot of graphic sex scenes in it, and a lot of rough language. Very rough. The most annoying thing about this story is the author's writing style.



Eight days of quietly succumbing to this broken heart.
"Eight days.
Eight days.
Eight days. "




Her illiteration repeats, about 60+ of the example above, get seriously annoying to continue constantly reading. The author does it almost every 2 pages, sometimes twice on a page. It can make a statement to do it once or twice, but every 2 pages? ick Downgraded it a star just for this.
     
Due to all of the above, I'm sorry but I wouldn't recommend this author due to her writing style. Her story is okay, if you can overlook and get past her writing. I wouldn't recommend this book, because not only is her writing style highly annoying, even if you like the story, but also due to the cliffhanger.

The kid is taken away by social services at the end of this book. If you want to find your HEA, and see how the kid fares, whatever, you have to buy the next book. Which, I won't even give you the title of, as I'm not promoting it, nor am I reading it.

Review: Lucky Break

Lucky Break Lucky Break by Liliana Rhodes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Loved this story. I choked up several times. Love that our heroine is so much like a normal girl next door. Who doesn't want to fall for their crush?

Review: Silent in the Grave

Silent in the Grave Silent in the Grave by Deanna Raybourn
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I gave up after 8 chapters. I just couldn't get into it and still didn't care about the characters. I read the reviews and although it has a lot of 4, 5 and 6 star reviews, it also had over 700 1 and 2 star reviews. Based on those reviews, if I'm this far into it and still don't like it, it isn't suppose to improve.

Review: Special Delivery Baby

Special Delivery Baby Special Delivery Baby by Sherri Shackelford
My rating: 0 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this very much. It's the middle book of three in a companion series (written by different authors) that all take place in Cowboy Creek, KS. I missed the first book but was able to enjoy this without having read the first. A backstory that didn't get finished (which bugs me)... will hopefully get tied up in the next (last?) in the series.

Review: The Inn at Rose Harbor

The Inn at Rose Harbor The Inn at Rose Harbor by Debbie Macomber
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Any book that has me tearing up by the ending gets a full 5 star rating. This book is set in Macomber's Cedar Cove. Recurring characters from that series are still in town and wander through the book but this is a new series focusing on the Inn, it's new owner, and her guests. Wonderful story. Can't wait for the next book, Rose Harbor in Bloom due in August 2013. It's definetly not required reading, and is very short, but you can read how Jo Marie met her husband (she's now a widow) in the very short novella, available as an ebook only in When First They Met. Most of what's in there, is told in past tense through memories in The Inn at Rose Harbour. It's told in present tense in the novella, and of course, it would be the only way to "meet" her husband as she's a widow as the series starts.
