Review: Year One by Nora Roberts @StMartinsPress


Spoiler Free!

I went into Year One without really knowing much about it. I haven’t read Nora Roberts in years and years, except for a re-read of Irish Thoroughbred that didn’t go well, but the premise of Year One piqued my interest. I was curious to see how Roberts handled the end of the world, and post-apocalyptic titles are right up my alley. Especially if there are zombies. There were none here, but the paranormal elements were fun anyway.

Review: Once Upon a Texas Christmas by Winnie Griggs


May Contain Spoilers

Somehow this is the first book by Winnie Griggs I have read. Not sure how I missed her books in the past, since I have been trying to read the Love Inspired Historicals as they are released every month. All the better for me; this is the tenth and final book in the Texas Grooms series, and now that I’ve discovered it, I will be checking out more of the series from the library.

Review: The Rancher by Sarah M Anderson


May Contain Spoilers

Okay. Where to start with this one? I wanted to read The Rancher because I am a huge fan of Sarah M Anderson’s writing. I had my reservations, though, to be honest. The whole concept of the hero wearing a mask – I don’t know, it just seemed so weird to me. And as I got into the story – did Jacob even have a nose? I think this would have worked better if I had read it at another time of the year. I have been reading light, happy Christmas stories, and this does not fit into that mindset. I found the story dark, humorless, and a slag-fest to get through.

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.
