When Snowflakes Fall (#1) Like Fresh Fallen Snow (#2) Author: Tara Wyatt Reviewer: Nima Ratings: B+ and B What I’m Talking About: I have a soft spot for novellas, especially holiday ones.  They are these little mini escapes in the midst of chaos; something I can start and finish while juggling shopping, baking, and obligations.

Review: Vick’s Vultures by Scott Warren

Vick’s Vultures Author: Scott Warren Reviewer: Nima Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: I had some high expectations for Vick’s Vultures after reading the blurb.  It seemed like the scope promised was just too big for 223 pages.  I’m happy to report that relative newcomer Scott Warren rose to the hype.  This is a really […]

Review: Gilt Hollow by Lorie Langdon

Gilt Hollow Author: Lorie Langdon Reviewer: Nima Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Author Lorie Langdon steps away from the fun and fantasy of her Doon Series to a darker who-done-it mystery in Gilt Hollow.  Gilt Hollow is the name of a quirky little town in Ohio that embraces artistic, creative types, but still has […]

Review: Can I See You Again? by Allison Morgan

Can I See You Again? Author: Allison Morgan Reviewer: Nima Rating: B- What I’m Talking About: Can I See You Again? is a good book, but it fell short of the potential to be more. Bree Caxton is a matchmaker based in La Jolla, California.  Her expertise is in reading body language and a wistful […]

Review: The Best Seller by Dina Rae

The Best Seller Author: Dina Rae Reviewer: Nima Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: The Best Seller is a solid foundation to an as yet unnamed new science fiction series by Dina Rae.  With the flood of paranormal romance in the last decade, it’s been a long time since I’ve read a book about plain, […]

Review: It Happened One Doomsday by Laurence MacNaughton

It Happened One Doomsday Author: Laurence MacNaughton Reviewer: Nima Rating: B What I’m Talking About: It Happened One Doomsday is a quirky little read. It has sort of a campy feel to it.  Clearly this is the first in a new series and I will likely read at least the next installment when it comes […]

Missed Connections Author: Tamara Mataya Reviewer: Nima Rating: C+ What I’m Talking About: The premise promised by the title Missed Connections is a fun one.  Two people shared a connection at some point in real life, but failed for any number of reasons to act on it.  Through the imaginary Missed Connections website featured in […]

Review: Wedding Girl by Stacey Ballis

Wedding Girl Author: Stacey Ballis Reviewer: Nima Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Wedding Girl is a delightfully indulgent book. All in one, it’s an ode to comfort food, old black and white movies, specifically The Little Shop Around the Corner, and family. The Little Shop Around the Corner (1940) was remade into the 1998 […]

Review: The Obsession by Nora Roberts

The Obsession Author: Nora Roberts Reviewer: Nima Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Nora Roberts is a prolific writer.  As such, she is known for a certain predictability, if not being formulaic in her writing style.  Her ardent fans like this about her style.  I have enjoyed a few of her books over the years, […]

Review: Compromised by Emmy Curtis

Compromised Author: Emmy Curtis Reviewer: Nima Rating: B What I’m Talking About: This is my first read of an Emmy Curtis book and Compromised, being #5 in the series, puts me at a disadvantage of any backstory that I may have missed.  That being said, I wish I had some. We come into the story […]
