Meet Lizzie. She’s 31 and having a mid-life crisis. So she bought a house. Well, it seemed like a good idea at the time. 
But she gets more than she bargained for. She didn’t expect the engagement ring, the lazy cat, the stalker or the drop dead gorgeous handyman. But she did already have the crazy family and sex crazed Grandma. So when she decides to find the ring’s rightful owner, she kind of hoped that the Universe would be on her side. But that would be too easy wouldn’t it? 
Lucky for Lizzie the Universe seems to know what it’s doing.

This is the Author's very first book and I read this in 2012.  Beth Prentice will make you laugh out loud with her writing and her fun loving characters that she creates in this story. This book is a contemporary with romance, mystery and comedy. “It star...

If you like Hot and Steamy reads this book you will enjoy.  But if you like sweet innocent reads you might want to pass on this one, as it’s steamy from the very first page, but by the end you will have your heart melting with the moments of tenderness. This father’s devotion to his daughter is inspiring and a really nice change from reading about single mothers. I wish this book was longer so we could have experienced more of these characters, as I feel they had more to tell.

But Hunter had other problems when he is served papers from his Ex and mother of his daughter, wanting custody of Tani.

I received an ARC copy of this book for my honest review.
Sarah a widow and her 4 year old daughter move to Oak Grove to remove themselves from their tragic past. Lucas Bennett, born in Oak Grove has a past that is full of guilt. Can secrets and their past overcome their attraction to each other? This is the first full book in this new series and I can’t wait to read what happen to the Bennett family and friends next.

I truly loved the book and the sweet town, it's set in. Both main characters have had their problems and issues to overcome to find genuine  love. Is it too soon for Sarah to be interested in anyone else other than her past husband? Lucas has already decided with his job he can’t afford to have someone lose him in the line of duty like his best friends family did. Your heart w...

I could not put this book down and found it thought provoking and loving. I have seen a few autistic kids at my children’s school but not on a personal level.  How these parents do what they do is just amazing? I enjoy this book at the same time learning a lot about this disorder.  I love when I can read for the joy of reading a fiction book but also have my eyes open to the world around me. The two main characters are explored fully in this novel and you will come to feel their pain, joy excitements and disappointments.  This is part of the Man of spring baseball series number 4th book.  “Playing for the save” is a very passionate story about Autism.  Well done Rachelle Ayala for this strong topic in you love story.

Ryan is a relief baseball pitcher and at 38 he is wond...

This was a very sweet and loving story of overcoming heartache and life changing events. It's only a short story, but I wished it was so much longer as I just fell in love with the character and their chemistry together. I have not read any of Kelly Collins books before this, but will be having a look at her other volumes as I very much loved this novella.

This is my first book of Susan Gable that I have read. I received a free copy of the book and this is my honest review. I found this book to be an inspiration of love and friendship. Shannon and her 6 yr old nephew Ryan meets Greg Hawkins an Art Therapist/Comic book writer after the death of Ryan’s mother. Can Greg help Shannon and Ryan to recover from their trauma and fight for what they want and require? Highly recommend this book it will keep you interested until the final page…. Heroes can be found in everyone if they try. Susan has developed strong characters and a very interesting plot.  This is book one of the Hawkins series and it's a real strong start with strong characters and interesting plot.
