About The Blog


What is it that fuels each and every one of us in this world? For me, it is Reading for the love of books. Since I got started as a blogger back in 2017, I have found such a sense of fulfillment in my own life. I enjoy composing and reviewing about my passions for books while helping Authors sell their books from my recommendations. With each passing day, Reading for the love of books gains more followers, and with that, even more, success. Books bring the universe to you without having to run anywhere, and then it enables all people to see beyond their lives and to see things and places that they may not have learned if not for books.

It’s so wonderful to be back in Maple Glen again with the Mitchell family as we follow the stories of this community. In this book, the story is about Charlie Mitchell and Autumn Martin but like all the books in this series, we will get an update about the other characters we have already fallen in love with and the ones that have yet to tell us their story. This is a feel-good sweet romance that will leave you wanting more of these people and the town. It can be read as a stand-alone but to get the full effect I would suggest you read the series to appreciate the author's intent to share these wonderful characters with us.

Christina Butrum has given us a small town that to me I can in visioned with characters that feel real in situations that most of us can relate to in this crazy world we...

It’s great to be back in Maple Glen again, it’s a small town that I would love to visit or live in as the author has created such a wonderful array of characters you will just fall in love with. This is book two of the Maple Glen series and I must be honest to say was not a great as the first one, this story but a bit more predictable with no real drama to get my reading mojo full hooked. It is still a great read and I love the author’s style and writing. I look forward to the next book in this series.

Cara Mitchell has returned home to help her Aunt Fran out with her coffee shop but she is missing her job as a Photographer and her business partner and best friend. It’s almost time to leave and return to her real life and the job she loves.

Welcome to Maple Glen a small fiction town we are shaw to fall in love with.  I did enjoy this book but did find at times it was a bit slow and it almost lost my interested but I soldered on to which I am very glad it did.  I loved Emmalee’s determination and truthfulness it was very much suited to Clayton’s stubbornness and kindness.  I received an arc copy of this book to which I have written my honest and voluntary review.  If you love sweet small-town romance this is the book for you.  I am so looking forward to meeting some new characters from Maple Glen in the upcoming books of this new series.

Clayton does not mix business with pleasure so when the very striking new girl in town catches his eye his is very happy to get to know her better.  But when she is offered...

It was so lovely to immerse myself back into Cedar Valley that I almost read this book in one sitting. But the family begged for dinner so I had to leave it to feed them.  It had been a while since we had last been in Cedar Valley but it all comes tumbling back as I started to read this book and learned more about these great characters.  I have been looking forward to reading Conner story since book 2 “Everything she needs” where we meet him and his brother Adam.  As much as I loved this book it was over just too fast for me I would have liked a bit more to the story.  This is a sweet romance of friends to lovers that will have you totally entertained.  I have reviewed an Advance Reader Copy in exchange for my unbiased and voluntary review of this book that I would recommend to anyone who...
