Review: The Art of Running in Heels by Rachel Gibson

May Contain Spoilers

I’ve been on a hockey kick recently, so when I saw that Rachel Gibson, an author I have enjoyed in the past, had a hockey book out, I was all over it. This is the first Chinooks Hockey Team book I’ve read (it’s #7), but I had no problem keeping up with the story. I do want to go back and read Simply Irresistible,  her parents’ story from waayyy back in 1998 (and the original cover is so awful!). The Art of Running in Heels had a few troublesome moments for me, but overall, I thought it was a light, breezy read.

May Contain Spoilers

I took one look at the cover of Ena Moriyama’s manga adaptation of The Count of Monte Cristo and was immediately entranced by the pretty art. I wondered if the interior art was as lovely, so I cleared a block of time on Saturday to read this version of Alexandre Dumas’ classic tale of betrayal and revenge. I really enjoyed this book!

Manga Review: Black Clover Vol 1 by Yuki Tabata

May Contain Spoilers

I checked this out of the library without even knowing what it was about. I’m almost caught up on Haikyu!!, and I’m looking for another series to read until new volumes of that are released. This jumped out at me; I liked the cover with the extremely happy looking guy wielding a big black sword. Sure, count me in!

Review: The Billionaire’s Forever Family


May Contain Spoilers

The Billionaire’s Forever Family features one of my favorite romance tropes – care-giver of an orphaned relative struggles to raise the child, and then has to fend off a custody battle. Cassie Frost has been raising her niece Emily since she was born. Her sister, a free-spirit, and that’s being kind, because deep down she was selfish and cared more for herself than for her own daughter, thought Cassidy would bail her out of every stupid decision she made, has recently passed away from a sudden illness. Thinking that Emily needs a male role-model in her life, Cassie reaches out to Will Connelly, suspecting that he might be Emily’s father. What she doesn’t expect is a threat to her guardianship and having her whole life thrown in an uproar.
