My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Matilda Schmidt is a psychologist that has more studied human interaction than actually lived it. When she receives a strange phone call from a man claiming to be a demigod she thinks she actually may be losing her mind. When that man shows up the next day at her office with Cupid in tow expecting Matilda to treat him things couldn’t seem to be any crazier, that is until a armed man comes in and kidnaps Matilda claiming she’s been to Las Vegas and has gambling debts to pay.

A rather crazy mix up of events that wasn’t bad but with it being such a short story it seemed a bit too much to try to toss in. I would’ve liked to see a lot more detail and fleshing out of characters and story lines before jumping into the next event but this is novella length so it felt a bit rushed.

Overall, not bad just felt it would’ve worked better as a longer book.

When Haley Carston returns to Redbud Trails to care for her dying aunt she runs into the daughter of her old high school friend Katie. Katie had passed away years ago in a car accident leaving her daughter Olivia in the care of her uncle Maddox. Maddox and Haley had feelings for each other that they never acted upon back after Katie had convinced Maddox to take Haley to her senior prom.

Olivia reminds Haley so much of Katie, when Olivia shows her that she wants to start up her own ice cream business Haley can’t help but get involved while she’s in town. Haley spending so much time with the little girl also means spending time with Maddox again and the two slowly begin to rekindle those old flames.

A lovely story of a love that once slipped away between two people that have matured over the years and now seem meant to be. Maddox has struggled to care for his niece and injured younger brother and Haley is the breath of fresh air needed to pull the family back together.

Overall, great love story would definitely recommend.

Kate McDonald has moved to the big city of San Francisco from a small town in Alaska to try to get into a career in the publishing industry. While at an event she meets the famous author Gabriel Call. Gabriel is immediately attracted to Kate but doesn’t want to offer a relationship beyond sex while he is staying in San Francisco. Of course things heat up and it seems each are wanting more.

A really hot and steamy read with a lot of chemistry between the sheets for Kate and Gabriel. In a way this reminded me of 50 Shades of Grey in the way that Gabriel seemed to think of Kate as more of a possession and want things on his terms although it was not a dominate/submissive relationship as in those books.

It also seemed like as soon as the story started to progress it ended on a cliffhanger. Not overly a fan of the ones that just abruptly end in this way but a good read until then.

Overall, a good hot and steamy erotic romance with a cliffhanger ending.

Natalie Flemming thinks she has her career on track as an accounting manager at a designer shoe company and all she wants to do is find her Mr. Right. Getting frustrated not meeting the man of her dreams she places an ad in a magazine hoping to expand her prospects. When a handsome stranger shows up at her company though Natalie can’t concentrate on any of her potential dates being infatuated with Oliver.

A lovely romantic comedy that had me laughing out loud on more than one occasion with Natalie’s antics. Loved Natalie’s character right from the start, just the right mix of a sort of zany craziness that had me both laughing and rooting for things to turn out well for her. Her letters to the man of her dreams were always good for a chuckle between the chapters too.

Overall, great for the fans of romantic comedies.

Pink Balloons and Other Deadly Things (Carrie Carlin, #1) by Nancy Tesler

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Carrie Carlin is a biofeedback technician who is in the middle of a divorce from her husband of eighteen years who left her for a model that worked at his company. When she visits her old house and overhears the new fiance Erica discussing her five thousand dollar wedding dress she gets upset and rushes off only to be pulled over for speeding.

When hearing the next day that Erica was murdered Carrie gets a visit from the same detective that had pulled her over. When she finds herself becoming a suspect Carrie begins to investigate Erica’s murder on her own.

This book was alright really I just couldn’t really find myself getting too into the story as Carrie’s therapy time kind of bored me a bit. The oh my gosh this woman is an over-eater at 150lbs and a few others things was really kind of a turn off and found those areas of the story a bit boring. Not to mention that often it seemed Carrie should be a patient instead of helping others with some of her frantic behavior.

Overall, wasn’t a fan of the main character but I’m sure others would enjoy this cozy mystery.
