Book Review – The Nanny by Gilly Macmillan #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading

Gilly Macmillan is simply brilliant!! This was my first book by her, and I was completely entranced by her writing to the point I took my kindle everywhere with me.

Book Review – The Silver Ladies of Penny Lane by Dee MacDonald #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading

My conclusions after reading the book It is rape or non consensual sex when a man has sex with a woman of any age who is in an inebriated state and does not know where she is. It is not the woman's fault. Anyone, including herself or her friend, tries to justify it, it will … Continue reading Book Review – The Silver Ladies of Penny Lane by Dee MacDonald #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading

Book Review – Timur’s Escape by Tabi Slick #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading

I would be the first one to admit that history and I are not friends. This book was written at the backdrop of the Ottoman Empire between 14th and 20th century. But it was not a historical fiction. It is purely a paranormal love story with action, politics, and drama. The story started with Queen … Continue reading Book Review – Timur’s Escape by Tabi Slick #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading

Book Review – Sconed to Death by Lynn Cahoon #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading

I went in blind with this book. I knew the author wrote cozy mysteries which meant small town, warm characters with some mean ones, descriptions of food/recipe, a murder, some suspects, a busybody, the main character and her team to investigate that murder. My first book by Lynn Cahoon though 5th in the series, was … Continue reading Book Review – Sconed to Death by Lynn Cahoon #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading

Book Review – Justice for Belle by Didi Oviatt #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading

I am in quite a fix on how to write this review. The story goes thus, Ahnia, a has-been writer, meets Mac, a wannabe writer, and feels a strange attraction to him. They meet again where Mac proposes a preposterous challenge which arouses Ahnia's interest. Taking such a risk would make creative juices flow again, … Continue reading Book Review – Justice for Belle by Didi Oviatt #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading

Book Review – The Dare by Carol Wyer @carolewyer @bookouture #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading
