Book Review


Jay is a Korean baseball player hoping to make it to the major leagues. Jessie has a Korean father, and an ex-boyfriend whom she’s trying to forget. A current pest, who pretends to be her boyfriend despite her not being interested and a blooming interest in Jay. Can the tigress hold out against Jay’s ex fiancée, his demotion to the minor leagues and losing out on her dream? I could have done with more story details and less “action” in the book. I mean every time you turned a chapter they were at it again! Although the fact that they both managed to get on with their lives and work on their dreams is a good things

Book Review


An American student Cheryl is asked by her professor to go to France for an assignment to restore a chapel which was damaged in a world war two bombing. The Count is hardly happy to have a student in place of the eminent professor he was expecting, but is courteous enough to welcome her. Then the professor dies in hospital and the police figures out that it was actually a murder. Finding the hidden statue of the Madonna has become an obsession with all the students working on the restoration of the chapel. The story does get a bit complicated and difficult to follow with the many twists and turns at the end.Love all the characters floating through the woods!

Book Description

In the brilliant fourth book from Andy McDermott, Nina Wilde must battle the Covenant of Genesis if she is to find the world’s greatest archaeological treasure...

Off the coast of Indonesia, archaeologist Nina Wilde makes an explosive find: evidence of a settlement that existed over a hundred thousand years before any previously known civilisation. But when her ship is attacked, it becomes clear that the clandestine religious group calling itself the Covenant of Genesis will stop at nothing to prevent her from revealing this knowledge.

With her fiancé Eddie Chase, Nina embarks upon a dangerous worldwide search to expose the Covenant of Genesis – and the incredible secret they will kill to conceal.

Book Review

Its amazing how Nina Wilde is in the path of every possible major archaeological find ever made! yea, yea, I know, I'm addicted to the action packed sequences that always seem to follow Eddie Chase as he goes about trying to rescue his damsel in distress, Nina. Well, the two have another strong and powerful enemy in the Covenant of Genesis which brings together some fanatics from the three major Abrahamic religions.

Their mission, to keep the world from finding out that the Garden of Eden was an actual place in Africa. The reason? It wasn't the home of early human beings, but a whole different ball game. So I'm not going to spoil the fun, in case you do decide to read the book. They go through many continents and countries and as Nina says, now people have officially tried to kill her on all seven continents.

Angelina Serrano is determined to prove to her two bossy brothers and especially her doting Papá that she not only has the skills, but the gumption to work with them in family accounting firm in Santiago, Chile. To do this, she makes a bargain with her father, that in two years, she will have opened her own firm in Victoria, Canada and paid off the majority of its debt. But what’s a girl going to do when two months before the deadline, an unforeseen earthquake, a sassy teenage runaway and a charge of theft are obstacles she’s forced to overcome. Top that with her meeting the most dangerous complication of all, a handsome Search & Rescue hero with cat-green eyes full of pure temptation and a tendency to screw up whenever he’s near her. After saving him time and again, she’s ready to let love in only he’s skittish and proves to be her biggest challenge. 

Search & Rescue worker, Dr. Joe Davidson, has never had a victim save him before and the fact that this South American beauty comes through for him three times is a large burr in his backside. This Angel is no plaything like his other conquests but he’ll never be caught in the marriage trap like his five, hen-pecked brothers. If only he can stay away from her long enough so his disloyal body and the fierce hunger eating away his willpower will accept that she’s off-limits. 

Book Review


I read this book as a part of a boxed series where ten authors had contributed ten wonderful stories. So I decided to take the time to review the individual story as well. Mimi's book has you cheering for the little runaway Tee, while wanting to sock Joe in the jaw for making Angelina cry. The whole book is written in her lovely style with new twists and turns in the plot challenging the main protagonists. Its a delightful read.

Book Description

Because no one is listening! 

Remi Calder is a satisfied woman who believes she has everything she desires—until she sees Eadan Fleming for the first time. The fact that he hires her to redecorate his flat presents many opportunities for her to spend time with the man, and she’s in heaven. Wanting to make herself more attractive in order to catch his eye, she decides she needs to change her appearance. Pairing up with a neighboring youngster who’s in the pits of despair from her bullying peers, they share their struggles to lose the excess weight that makes them both so unhappy. Will he notice? 

Eadan Fleming is taken with the gentle genius and gorgeous spirit of his new designer. He’s looking forward to spending time with a woman who cares more about sharing a wonderful meal with her escort than worrying about her thin shape. Deciding that the stunning beauties he’s spent his last few years trying to understand are a thing in the past, he happily makes the choice that his next woman will be nicely rounded—and Remi Calder fits his dream woman perfectly. Except the gutsy woman is flesh and blood… 

Book Review


Who wouldn't love it when a handsome, single man moves into their apartment building. Remi Calder is totally delighted to see Eadan Fleming shifting in. However its quite mortifying to be caught spying on him moving boxes by his younger brother as she hides behind the bushes. Well, she may be a confident young woman most of the time, but she also becomes a clumsy mixed up kid when infatuation hits and with Eadan it hits hard. So what's a girl to do but fall in love.

Eadan is trying to get over his cheating fiancee and get a fresh start. However he has decided that the next woman he gets involved with will not be a super thin model lookalike, but a real flesh and blood woman with a few pounds on her. Plus Remi totally fits that bill. When he gets her to help redesign his flat they get to know each other better. Unfortunately Eadan needs to go back home and pick up the slack on behalf of his brother, leaving Remi and him no option but to continue long distance.

Little does he know that Remi is helping her young friend Greta become more confident as she adopts a healthier lifestyle and loses weight. The two girls partner up to become thinner and the efforts are clearly visible when they go at it. I love the way the author has brought out the challenges that slightly obese kids go through with bullies and their own self. Of course Eadan's response to the new trim Remi is anything but desirable...Lol

My life was full of nevers. 

It was never supposed to go this way. I was never supposed to lose Mom so soon. I was never supposed to worry about making ends meet, to worry about losing the farm. I never thought I’d be working a job I hate, with a boss who was more interested in what was under my shirt than in my head. Saving neglected and abused horses had been my whole life. It was my reprieve, my sanity, my last saving grace in a cruel world. I never thought I’d grow to resent it, but I guess there is a first for everything. 

Then I met him. 

The Hollywood playboy. The entitled, cocky as*hole that I can’t get out of my head. I never thought there could be more to him than sex appeal and an infamous reputation of loving and leaving. I never thought I’d fall for him, put my heart on the line, and risk letting him completely destroy me. 

But you know what they tell you…never say never.

Nurse Kirsten Bailey places her family above all else. She refuses to give former army medic Brady Hewitt any leeway for being weeks late in visiting his ill grandmother. But Brady has a good excuse, and he's eager to show the pretty nurse that first impressions aren't always right. While working with Brady to care for his grandmother and two orphaned boys, Kirsten realizes that his charm and kindness aren't an act. But Kirsten plans on doing missionary work abroad, and she's determined not to fall for the engaging soldier. Could the man she once dismissed be the one to make her stay forever?

Book Description

This was the second book in a series and I guess it didn't make much of a difference to have not read the first book as the story is more or less a stand alone one. It speaks a lot about finding your way with the help of God and praying a great deal. The plot itself was a sweet one of a nurse loosing her cool over someone she considers an irresponsible grandson, only to realise what an all round good guy he actually is. Add in the two orphans who the couple finally end up looking after and there are some nice moments like watching a movie together with pop corn and all. All in all a pleasant enough read. Nothing great to write home about.

Book Review

Okay, so I'll admit that after the somewhat disappointing second book The Tomb of Hercules, I thought I'd give up on the series. Then I went back to the first chapter I had read of Book 3 and decided to check it out anyway. So glad I did. This time round the myth busting comes to England, along with a side helping of Eddie's family.

Absolutely love the Nan (Grandmother)'s response to be in a high speed chase with her Grandson Eddie and his Fiancée Nina through her little English countryside town. Of course the rest of the book was a whole series of action, events beyond control, subterfuge and double crosses of the kinds masala movies are made of. It was more interesting and had a number of twists in the plot as compared to Book 2 which barely had a story to string all the action together.

For previous books in the series, here's the list.
The Hunt For Atlantis (Wilde/Chase 1)
The Tomb of Hercules (Wilde/Chase 2)
The Secret of Excalibur (Wilde/Chase 3)
