Book Description

High school senior Casey Donovan is in trouble. Again. If only she had trusted in Nate's loyalty when he traveled to Spain with his college basketball team - despite the accompaniment of the cheerleading squad and Fiona the Floozy who'd made it super clear she wanted Nate for herself. Then she wouldn't have made that impulsive trip to Hollywood and let Aiden do that stupid thing that threatened her relationship with Nate, and triggered a trip into the past. Only something is wildly wrong. She's not in the 1860s like she should be. It's 1929. And she didn't come alone. 

Book Review

In this book Casey Donovan catches up with Adeline Savoy in Hollywood as she goes on a class trip. What started out as a way to escape sitting and waiting for Nate while he goes to Spain to play basketball, turns into another interesting "trip" to the past in Hollywood. The girls bond over their problems in the past and are wondering just how they will get out of the mess that they find themselves in. I mean, getting thrown in jail was not something to be taken lightly even in the past!

Book Description

A companion book to Clockwise. 

Adeline doesn't feel she belongs in her own time, but can bad boys from the past be trusted? 

Adeline Savoy had hoped that the move west from Cambridge to Hollywood with her single dad would mean they’d finally bond like a real family, but all she got was a father too busy with his new female friends and his passion for acting to really see her. 

Instead she finds herself getting attached to Faye, the divorcee hair dresser she befriends when she travels back in time to 1955. Plus Faye has a hottie, James Dean-esque, bad-boy brother who has Adeline’s heart all aflutter. But bad boys from the past can be dangerous. 
Is it possible that Adeline really does belong in her own time and that maybe the right boy lives as close as next door?

Book Review

We take a break from Casey Donovan's story to find out what's happening with the other time traveller she bumped into at the supermarket. Adeline is not so keen on moving away but her father wants to follow his dream of becoming an actor. Now she has to face a new school, making new friends and trying to survive in the Hollywood of the past!

While I was a little disappointed at not finding Casey in the book, it was interesting to see Adeline's story come together. Would it really be worthwhile to stay in the past? Specially with as enticing a boyfriend as James, or would it be easier to wait for Marco? I particularly loved the surprise that Faye arranges for Adeline in the future! How cool was that! Nice read.

Book Description


Casey Donovan has issues: hair, height and uncontrollable trips to the 19th century! And now this-she's accidentally taken Nate Mackenzie, the cutest boy in the school, back in time. Awkward.

It's the eve of the American Civil war and protocol pressures Casey to tell their hosts that Nate is her brother. No one more surprised than she is when they are forced to share a one room worker's cabin. Super awkward. 

Nate's slow to accept their new reality but when he does, he realizes he needs Casey to get back. His nearness is intoxicating to Casey, but she keeps her cool by hanging a privacy blanket and staying aloof. Knowing Nate has an evil girlfriend waiting for him at home helps.

Over time Casey gains the attention of a handsome, wealthy (and unwanted) suitor, and something changes in Nate. Are those romantic sparks or is it just "brotherly" protectiveness?

When they return to the present, things go back to the way they were before: Casey parked on the bottom rung of their school's social ladder and Nate perched high on the very top. Except this time her heart is broken. Plus, her best friend is mad, her parents are split up, and her younger brother gets escorted home by the police. The only thing that could make life worse is if, by some strange twist of fate, she took Nate back to the past again.

Which of course, she does.

Book Review

What would you do if you started time travelling at the age of nine to the past. Freak out? Learn to cope with it? With Cassey its a bit of both. Going between two really different worlds without a moment's notice one way or the other can be frightening to say the least, but she's been doing it for years and has her systems on go. What isn't so cool is the fact that its a secret that she can not share and has to protect her own parents from. 

One trip with Nate, a guy she has a crush on, back into the past makes her believe that she can never have a normal life. How can anyone love a freak like her who just disappears into the past? Apparently the path of true love is too rough for anyone to walk with her, or is it? And what if she is not the only time traveller around? Can she learn to control it? Can Nate accept her with her affliction? Can her past reach out into her future? The author has done a fantastic job of telling an absolutely brilliant story!

Book Description

As a kid from a shattered family, Kathy Harris couldn't wait to get out of Harmony Valley. Yet here she is, back home, determined to rebuild her life and regain her young son's trust. But she doesn't expect to work miracles–unlike Dylan O'Brien, the enigmatic cowboy rumored to be a healer of misfit horses.

As they work to save an injured colt, Kathy starts to believe in a future with Dylan that she never thought possible. But one of Kathy's new rules is no more secrets…and Dylan has a big one. One that could destroy the life he and Kathy are building together.
Time For Love

Book Review

Its a second chance story for Kathy and Dylan. Both have had to deal with alcoholic parents and have had their measure of set backs. Kathy is a recovering alcoholic who is working hard to regain her son Truman's love and trust. I really liked how her daily struggle and low self worth is documented. 

Dylan needs redemption from a horse training accident which caused him to loose his nerve and taint his reputation. Not to mention surviving a divorce where his ex-wife is making it difficult for him to be with his son Zach. The two of them make an odd pair, but when you look deeper there's a lot in common. 

Will they be able to survive the current crisis in their lives and make a future together? Read the book to find out.

Book Review


I am really sorry that it took me so long to get to this beautiful book. I downloaded this way back in the month of April but forgot to read it! I was gently scanning through my kindle shelf when I saw it poking out. I began reading it and it was a revelation. The author has done a fantastic job of telling a beautiful story based on actual historical events that shaped a nation. Not only did I learn a whole lot more about the problems that were faced in the 1960s by the society at large, but I also found myself rooting for the three little kids who had to undergo the whole ordeal. I must say that I am glad to find that Betty is having a flashback because I hate to think of the main characters as long dead. Needless to say I was hooked to the book for the entire five hours it took me to read it and I was bugged with every distraction that took me away for however short period of time it was! Absolutely must read this book!

When he learns during a pre-wedding event they’re both working that she’s moving to L.A. because she’s giving up on Jake, he decides to give her a crash course on how to be noticed. Sean has, after all, three younger sisters. He knows how a woman’s mind works. But he doesn’t factor in how his heart works or how easily it could be broken.

Book Review

Having read a lot of Melinda's books I was looking forward to reading ALWAYS A BRIDESMAID and it didn't disappoint. The chef and the baker working together in the kitchen made for some interesting reading. Sean may have thought that having three younger sisters made him ready for anything female, but he was definitely not prepared for the Siberian Curse. Nicole may not know that the man she is pining after is gay, but she is even more confused about the two sides of Chef Sean. Does he want to yell at her or kiss her senseless? Amazing chemistry in the kitchen and outside it! The sweater makeover was hilarious!

Book Review


I must say that when I first got my hands on the book I was very excited. I had loved the first part and was keen to see how Abby and Eli were getting along on their adventures. So it was something of a shock to find out that not only was Eli not talking with Abby halfway through the book, but that Abby was intentionally spending time with Casey, just to make Eli mad. Not the best romance scenario. Specially since Eli was on the fast track to being a great Book Boyfriend in the first book. And the paranormal element was a lot more mixed up as well.

 It would be nice to know just what the Elders govern, and exactly why they want Abby protected. Anyhow, this book felt more like a stop gap measure to build up to a third book. Not as much fun as the first and it raised more questions than it answered. Hopefully the third in the series will provide us with a lot more answers.

Book Description


When an old enemy follows and causes mayhem in the small town of Tidal Falls, can Jared Martin overcome the odds to protect the woman he’s always loved and the child he never knew, or will it be too late for redemption? 

As a reader my favorite romances are those where the hero and heroine get a second chance to right old wrongs and hopefully find their happy ever after together. Jared became a favorite of mine in the first book of the Wounded Hearts series, Tidal Falls. I knew he needed to have a chance at redeeming his past and finding someone special to love- Annie Campbell.
I hope you enjoy this story as much as I did. Jared's a pretty special guy.

This book is a part of the Sutton Capital Series. Read the reviews of the previous books in the series here


Jennie Evan's heart broke when she lost her high school sweetheart and husband just after college graduation. She's found some semblance of a new life with good friends and a job she loves at Sutton Capital, but she knows she'll never love again. That part of her died with Kyle. 

Chad Thompson sees the heartache Jennie hides from the world. Despite the chemistry he and Jennie always fight against, Chad vows to keep their relationship friendly. Anything more would hurt Jennie and Chad knows he can't cause her more pain. 

When their well-meaning friends throw Jennie and Chad together in a plot designed to push their comfort zone, Jennie ends up in more danger than anyone could have foreseen. Chad knows he can protect her, but he isn't able to protect his own heart in the process. 

Book Review

Chad came home from the military with a lot of emotional baggage, but his cousin and best friend made sure that he did not shut them out. Then he slid back into the civilian life, taking on the security of their company. He was a big, beefy man, who no one would take liberties with… no one but Jennie. She is frivolous, calls him all kinds of nicknames, and laughs when she gets a raise out of him. Chad loves it, and he loves her, but he also knows her deepest secret. He knows that she is never going to be able to love him back and so he keeps his distance.


Then the two of them end up undercover on an assignment in a honeymoon resort for two weeks. 

This changes their relationship for ever. Plus it puts them in danger as they discover a money laundering scheme. With crooked federal agents trying to kill them, Chad gets into action and makes them disappear off the grid. What no one expects is that Jennie is now pregnant with Chad’s baby. She is struggling with her own personal demons and can’t tell Chad, who manages to guess and feels his heart will break. Can they ever get past the crisis? Or will they die before things can be set right?

Book Review 

Jessie was not kidnapped, Kelly was. Jessie was not kidnapped, Jill was. Jessie has no right to feel this anxious, but she does. She is unable to step out of the house alone without fear crashing into her. She tries to hide it, but the effects of her stress just seem to paralyze her. She thinks she has managed to hide the truth from everyone close to her. Then her mother notices her state and takes her case to her brother in law Jake.

Now he needs to do the same for Jessie, but can he retain his objectivity around her? Jessie is his wet dream, but one he can’t afford to touch. 

Six weeks in New York alone in a penthouse suite with her is going to play havoc with his control.
