    The Light at Wyndcliff

    Welcome back for another review! I’m so excited about this release, so let’s jump right into the review. I found Sarah Ladd’s newest book to be a breath of fresh air in the world of historical romance. Secrets, mysterious lights in the dark, and family division create so much more than a simple love story. The Light at Wyndcliff, while a romance at heart, simultaneously explores the timeless issue of family loyalty. I was hooked into this story from the first few pages. I found both the hero and heroine to be likable characters that were easy to sympathize with. Both find themselves in unique situations – Liam has inherited…

    Highland Renegade

    Was anyone else obsessed with the musical Seven Brides for Seven Brothers when they were younger? This first book in the Children of the Mist Series reminded me of that movie -in a good way. So many handsome Highlanders! I can’t wait to follow the rest of the series and see what happens to all these Highland brothers. This first book in the series follows the story of Ian MacGregor, leader of the clan, and Emily, the Dowager Countess of Woodhaven. I found them to be likeable characters with great chemistry between them. I really enjoyed the attempted murder mystery that weaved its way through the story. It was fast…

    Three Ways to Celebrate Jane Austen During Gothtober

    As Austen fans, we hardly need an excuse to celebrate more Jane goodness. However, I always get a little spring in my step when October rolls around since it means it time to enjoy all the Gothic goodness of Northanger Abbey (at least during the proper season). Forget pumpkin spice latte’s and Sweater Weather… I’ll take more Mr. Tilney, please. As the world around us quickly switches to virtual events, Chawton House is not to be left behind. I must say they have been one of the highlights of 2020, for me. Quickly adapting to the new normal, they have been offering so many fantastic virtual events. In celebration of…

    Elizabeth OHG Audiobook

    Welcome back! So first off, I have a confession. I am not an audiobook lover. In the past when I have tried to listen to audiobooks, I am like the meme… Oh, LOOK!!! A Squirrel!!! I lose focus way too easily. However, Elizabeth OHG has been in my TBR pile for quite a while now so I decided to take a chance and give the audiobook a try. I have nothing but praise for Elizabeth OHG! Before I get into the heart of the audio book. the narrator can really make or break the experience for me. Elizabeth Grace’s narration is superb. Her voice is calming with enough range to…

    Misleading A Duke

    Misleading A Duke Spotlight I was positively thrilled to have to chance to be apart of another A. S. Fenichel blog tour. The Wallflowers of West Lane is becoming one of my favorite series as it masterfully walks a fine line being real-life issues and a fantastic happily ever after. There is still life after a tragedy.

FenichelPublisher: Kensington/Lyrical PressPages: 304Genre: Historical Romance BOOK BLURB: Finishing school failed to turn them into proper society ladies.

    A Trace of Deceit

    Smoke swirling around the darkened doorstep creating mysterious shadows. A carriage racing down the uneven cobblestone street creating a sense of urgency. The distant echoing of the lamplighter’s steps fading into eerie silence. A sudden and unexplained murder. Yes, please! After reading Diane Freeman’s newest novel (and thoroughly enjoying it), I thought maybe I needed to start exploring the world of Victorian mystery. I opened up my email and saw a message asking if I would like to review A Trace of Deceit by Karen Odden. It was an offer too tempting to resist. I am now officially a Victorian mystery lover! A Trace of Deceit is itself a painting…
