Review: Wish upon a Wedding by LuAnn McLane

Review: Wish upon a Wedding by LuAnn McLane Wish upon a Wedding Author: LuAnn McLane Reviewer: Ang Rating: A What I’m Talking About: The premises with Wish upon a Wedding is not new. If you’ve watched the 1987 movie Can’t Buy Me Love or 2003’s Love Don’t Cost A Thing, you know the basic storyline: girl poses as boy’s girlfriend to get solve whatever the issue is. In those movies, the fake girlfriend was supposed to help with the boys’ popularity, while in this case it is Sophia who posses as the girlfriend to try to get Avery’s sister to stop trying to get him back together with his ex-fiance, who is a southern piece of work. OY!! Perfume...

Review: The Best Laid Wedding Plans by Lynnette Austin

Review: The Best Laid Wedding Plans by Lynnette Austin The Best Laid Wedding Plans Author: Lynnette Austin Reviewer: Ang Rating: C What I’m Talking About: As a girl who grew up in the South and truly loves Savannah, I was really excited to read The Best Laid Wedding Plans. I was excited to be transported back to the sights, smells, and people of my childhood. Unfortunately The Best Laid Wedding Plans dropped the ball. The Best Laid Wedding Plans fell completely flat; I actually felt like I was reading a book placed in the South, but written by someone who had never done more than drive through it or watch a movie about it. The wonderful thing about books...

Review: Written in the Stars by LuAnn McLane

Review: Written in the Stars by LuAnn McLane Written in the Stars Author: LuAnn McLane Reviewer: Ang Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Written in the Stars is a fun, flirty, fall read about second chances and learning to love, even when it is scary. And Cricket Creek couldn’t be a more perfect setting. As usual, the characters are spunky and spicy with the perfect amount of chemistry right from the start. Grace, with her English upbringing, is an awesome counter balance to Mason and his down home southern ways. Their struggle felt real without being overly heavy, and I loved the theme of finding home in unexpected places. The secondary storyline involving Becca and Jimmy could...

Review: Home by Morning by Kaki Warner

Review: Home by Morning by Kaki Warner Home by Morning Author: Kaki Warner Reviewer: Ang Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Kaki Warner’s Heartbreak Creek series has a consistent theme of Redemption and Homecoming and Home By Morning was no different. Pru and Thomas, who are both fighting to figure out where they belong and what their purposes are in a post Civil War world, find that hurts can heal with the right love and support, and home is rarely found without a struggle; often in unexpected places and with the least likely of people. Anyone who has followed The Runway Bride series or the Heroes of Heartbreak Creek series, of which this is the third...

Review: The Spring Bride by Anne Gracie

Review: The Spring Bride by Anne Gracie The Spring Bride Author: Anne Gracie Reviewer: Ang Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Those that regularly read my reviews know that I am not new to Anne Gracie or the Chance Sisters series. After the second book in the series, The Autumn Bride, left we wanting, I am happy to report that was not the case with The Spring Bride. The warmth and banter that I have come to love from Ms. Gracie was back as Jane and Zachary get to know each other mainly through long walks around Berkeley Square. The inner struggles and unloading for life’s lessons and baggage was addressed and happily ever after was...

Review: Walking on Sunshine by LuAnn McLane

Review: Walking on Sunshine by LuAnn McLane Walking on Sunshine Author: LuAnn McLane Reviewer: Ang Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: If I had to describe Walking on Sunshine in one phrase, I would say it is “Country Charm meets British Class with just a touch of Southern Sass.” Per McLane’s usual style we have two lovely couples looking for love, or at least two couples who find love when neither is really looking for it. Garrett and Mattie are our young twenty-somethings. Garret is a British boy who has come to Cricket Creek to help his dad at My Way Records. He stumbles into Mattie’s restaurant for breakfast as she is chasing Rusty the Ham-stealing...

Review: Sweet Harmony by LuAnn McLane

Review: Sweet Harmony by LuAnn McLane Sweet Harmony Author: LuAnn McLane Reviewer: Ang Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: I completely enjoyed Sweet Harmony by LuAnne McLane. It was a fun, sweet, romantic read, perfect for sitting by the pool or for reading on a cool rainy fall afternoon with a cup of cocoa. As usual Cricket Creek did not fail to welcome me to their small, sweet southern town complete with quirky and interesting characters. This episode in Cricket Creek revolves around Cat Carson and Jeff Greenfield, both country music stars who are thrown together from the moment Cat pulls into Cricket Creek from Nashville. Their banter is funny, Cat’s clumsy tendencies and Jeff’s...

Review: Where the Horses Run by Kaki Warner

Review: Where the Horses Run by Kaki Warner Where the Horses Run Author: Kaki Warner Reviewer: Ang Rating: A What I’m Talking About: I am so glad to be loving Kaki Warner again. After the crazy disappointment that was her last book I will admit I went into this one a bit nervous but found I had not reason for it. Where the Horses Run was a lovely read complete with her tell-tale wounded cowboy and her beautiful heroine who come together to rescue each other from the cruelties of life. This novel, however, had a few fun and expected twists beginning with the location. Instead of taking place in our lovely Heartbreak Creek, we were in...

How to School Your Scoundrel by Juliana Gray

How to School Your Scoundrel by Juliana Gray How to School Your Scoundrel Author: Juliana Gray Reviewer: Ang Rating: C What I’m Talking About: First let me start by saying as a rule I really enjoy Juliana Gray’s books. She writes fun, engaging characters with strong story lines that draw you in immediately and keep you turning the pages until the end of the novel. That, however was not the case in How to School Your Scoundrel, at least not for me. I have been waiting for this book since I started the A Princess in Hiding Series. I was excited to finally have all the pieces put together and really get to know Louisa. Would she...

Review: The Winter Bride by Anne Gracie

Review: The Winter Bride by Anne Gracie The Winter Bride Author: Anne Gracie Reviewer: Ang Rating: B- What I’m Talking About: The Winter Bride is the second book in the Chance Sister series, and I was really looking forward to reading it. I enjoyed The Autumn Bride a great deal and was excited to learn more about the Chance Sisters, but unfortunately I was left wanting. This book had tons of potential but fell flat in my opinion. Both of the main characters, Freddy and Damaris have tons of internal conflict and heavy baggage from their past which would have made for fantastic internal dialogue or reflection, but instead we are given only snippets of their...
