First Star I See Tonight - Susan Elizabeth Phillips

First Star I See Tonight
by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
 

A couple years ago, purely by chance, I heard that a
writer I had heard of, but never read, was making an
appearance at a book store, a ways from me. I had not 
lived here very long and not familiar with the area at all.
I called one of the few friends I had made at the time.
And we went to see Susan Elizabeth Phillips.
 
She was hilarious. A fabulous person to go see and I 
highly recommend you do the same if you ever have
the chance.
 
You will then know the person that writes these books!
Fabulous characters. So much to visualize as you read!
But not so much detail that it's boring. I found myself
so deep into the story that I thought I must surely be
living in that neighborhood, that apartment building,
that city. I could see The Spiral in my head as I read.
 
Piper Dove is an interesting one of a kind woman with
no fear. Well, she might be afraid of one thing. But it
surely is not men or hard work.
 
 
Cooper Graham has 'the' life. A successful popular
athlete who retired at the top of his game. Now, men
and women alike line up for the chance to talk with him
or get into his nightclub, The Spiral.
 
 
Coop has never met a woman like Piper. She has no concern
for his fame or fortune. Piper just needs a job and the chance
to do it well. To build a clientele and reputation in the business.
 
First Star I See Tonight is wonderful. Full of feelings and friends.
When it
comes right down to it, Coop needs to be tougher and stronger
 than ever before in his life. Piper has to be more brave and trusting than
she has ever been.  
Can they do it? They each will have to follow a path they did
not want and courageously give over if they really
wish to have the love of a lifetime. But can they do it??
 
 
I bought this book used from my library.

Saving Mr Banks - Movie Review

Saving Mr Banks
Movie Review
 

Saving Mr Banks is not a romance story. But it is
interesting and full of emotion. It also has a
wonderful ending. Which I find is my top reason
for reading romantic stories.
 
 
I was so torn about seeing this movie. If it is bad
or I am disappointed in it, I cannot unsee it, can I?
In the end, I am thrilled to have seen it. I own it
and watch it regularly. I really thought it was going
to be all about Walt Disney. But it is not really. Nor
is it really all about Mary Poppins. What it really is,
is impossible to explain without giving it all away.
 
Probably your library will have it. I don't believe
it is on Netflix or anyplace like that.
But I can tell you, likely it will be a big
surprise and perhaps you will want to buy
a copy for yourself.

Susan's Review of The Secret of My Seduction by Caroline Linden

The Secret of My Seduction by Caroline Linden
A Scandalous novella
March 21, 2017

Rule #1: Be discreet

No one suspects Bathsheba Crawford of being the anonymous author of a wickedly scandalous series of naughty novels. But she is.

Rule #2: Do not fall in love

When she approaches her publisher, rakish Liam MacGregor, with an indecent proposal, he's shocked. But he accepts.

Rules were made to be broken …


The requirements for their affair are simple: complete secrecy and no romantic attachment. But the more they see each other … the more pleasure they find in each other's arms… the harder it becomes to remember the rules …



Susan's Review


Bathsheba Crawford has a dilemma. As the author of the popular Tales of Lady X series, she needs to spice up her stories to hold her reader’s interest. Bathsheba understands that she needs to experience passion in order to describe it. She discusses her idea with her publisher Liam MacGregor and propositions him!

Caroline Linden is a terrific writer! This fast-paced novella is a sexy read with two fabulous characters! Bathsheba is described as plain and is able to capitalize on this feature when she attends social functions. She hears gossip that she is able to incorporate in her stories because no one notices her. I loved watching her gain confidence in herself as she and Liam began their affair! Bathsheba describes Liam as a rake but, there are glimpses of his true character and family relationships during the story. Loved the clever dialogue between the characters as they push each other’s buttons. The couple’s chemistry sizzles! Caroline Linden writes an excellent story-she blends fantastic dialogue, meaningful social commentary and sensual romance in The Secret Of My Seduction.

So what happens when an experiment turns to true passion? Pick up your copy of The Secret Of My Seduction – and find out!

If you enjoy authors Katharine Ashe, Tessa Dare and Lisa Kleypas—you will love this novella!

Gansett Island Series-- Episode 1 Victoria and Shannon-- Marie Force


Gansett Island Episodes: Season 1, Episode 1

Gansett Island midwife Victoria Stevens loves taking care of people, in her job and in her personal life, especially when it comes to her boyfriend of one year, sexy Irishman Shannon O’Grady. Fueled by combustible chemistry, her relationship with Shannon has been H-O-T from the start. But she’s begun to wonder whether theirs is destined to be a short-term fling or possibly the love of a lifetime. When she goes looking for answers about his past, she learns something she was better off not knowing and isn’t sure what to do with her newfound information. What will happen when Shannon finds out she’s been asking questions about him, and will they be able to overcome the obstacles standing between them and happily ever after? Find out in this first Gansett Island Episode, which also includes the arrival of some long-awaited island babies.




Review

This is the first book in the Gansett Island Episodes by author Marie Force. The well-paced 106- page novella focuses on two secondary characters from the author’s Gansett Island series and takes place over a four-day period.

Victoria’s story appealed to me and drew me into the story immediately. Working as a Nurse Midwife, Victoria witnesses couples becoming families with the birth of their child. She sees how her patients work together and support each other through pregnancy and childbirth. She’s been dating Shannon for a year—and she longs for her happily ever after, too. Victoria asks Seamus, Shannon’s cousin, if he knows why Shannon can’t move forward. Seamus tells Victoria about Shannon’s past and she’s not sure how to approach Shannon with the information.

Victoria walks into a busy morning at the clinic-there are two Island moms in labor! She doesn’t have a minute to think about her problems as these moms are keeping her busy! Victoria doesn’t have a chance to talk to Shannon because of the surprise arrival of Gansett baby three. He finds out by accident and is not pleased. He knows he is stuck in the past but doesn’t know how to move forward. I emphasized with Shannon, his past was tragic, but was surprised that he didn’t relate his story to Victoria.

I enjoyed that the author wove in a total of three couples and their stories into this novella. It was great fun catching up with the characters and Victoria’s experience with one couple moved me to tears. I loved the couple’s book and was thrilled that they got their HEA! Several other much loved characters provided support to Victoria and Shannon and added to the fast- paced storyline. I enjoyed this short story and my ferry ride over to Gansett Island. Victoria and Shannon’s story is a poignant story about friendship, community, faith and love. The ending of this book was beautifully written and perfect for Victoria and Shannon.

Looking forward to the next full length Gansett novel and Episode 2!

About the Gansett Island Episodes . . .

From Marie:
My fictional island has become such a huge part of my life—and yours—over these last six years, and I’ve created so many characters who speak to me between books and during the writing of new ones. I can’t possibly give them all a new story in every book, but I still have so much to say about them. With that in mind, I’ll be launching a new “Gansett Island Episodes” series in 2017, featuring shorter stories about past characters who readers love and want more of. Mixed in with these episodes will be at least one full-length book a year. So we’ll have plenty more from our favorite island, with new stories for past characters as well as all-new stories, too. I’m looking forward to this new adventure and hope you’ll take the ferry to Gansett for the new episodes!

Susan's review of Someone to Love by Donna Alward

Someone to Love is the second book in Donna Alward’s Darling Vermont series. It’s a thoughtful, character- driven novel which touches upon the importance of family, the grieving process and the ability to make hard decisions. The novel features Café owner Willow Dunaway and widowed firefighter Ethan Gallagher. Their unlikely opposites attract love story drew me into this fabulously written novel.



His wife had died. That gave a man an excuse to be grouchy, didn’t it? And Hannah knew him better than anyone, probably. Her face had softened, talking about him and how he loved his kids.
Willow’s heart ached for him. He had to be hurting so much. She knew what it was like to feel you’d lost everything.
On Sunday, she decided, she would be the epitome of kindness and tolerance. No matter how condescending he was. In her experience, a good dose of kindness went a long way.



Ethan and his late wife, Lisa, promised to love each other forever. They had a wonderful, simple plan; get married, buy a house and have children. The Gallagher’s picture perfect life ended when Lisa died of cancer leaving Ethan with two young sons to raise. The demands of raising two small children alone and working fulltime as a firefighter have brought Ethan to the breaking point. He is ill-tempered and rude to Willow when they sit next to each other at a Gallagher family dinner.

In contrast, Willow has chosen a peaceful existence; she meditates and practices yoga. She owns the Purple Pig café which provides healthy meals and treats to the community. She has reconnected with several friends; Laurel Gallagher, who is married to Ethan’s brother and his sister, real estate agent Hannah Gallagher. Willow’s mother made several decisions on Willow’s behalf when she was a teenager. These actions had long lasting emotional and physical effects for Willow.

Hannah asks Willow to watch Ethan’s sons for her so she can show a property to some clients. Ethan meets them and is furious. The couple finds common ground when the town’s food pantry is relocated in the storefront next to Willow’s café. Ethan and Willow try to fight their attraction but the physical pull is undeniable and a passionate relationship ensues. The author’s descriptive writing style shines in the novel. She does a fabulous job bringing Ethan’s children Ronan and Connor into the storyline. The two boys warm up to Willow immediately and I could hear Ronan say ‘Wil-low” and imagine Connor running after a soccer ball. Willow makes a choice which effects Ethan and the choice leads to a huge falling out between the couple.

The last few chapters were fast paced, exquisitely written— and kept me reading past my bedtime. I enjoyed how the author let Willow’s personal story unfold during the course of the novel and contrasted it with Ethan’s publically visual situation. I felt for Willow and came to understand Ethan as I read each page. The author stayed true to her characters Willow’s choice was heartfelt. Ethan’s reaction was pure Ethan; a boatload of angry words, finger pointing and denial. I preferred the open- ended conclusion to the novel as opposed to the traditional happily ever after ending that one might have expected. It was perfect!

Someone to Love is the best book that I have read in years!
Am so looking forward to the next book in the series!

Space in his Heart by Roxanne St Claire

Space in his Heart
by Roxanne St Claire
 
 
Commander Deke Stockard has a job to do. Check over
every square inch, every little tiny spot of the next
space shuttle launch. Every detail. Peoples lives depend
on his job. But something isn't just right. Reports, detailed
descriptions aren't exactly as they should be. Deke needs
to find out why.
 
Then, Jessica Marlowe arrives. She has a job too. Her career
depends on this advertising campaign going smoothly.
She is charged with making America fall in love with the
space program again. She knows next to nothing about space
travel. But she knows what sells. Sex. Sex sells.
Deke Stockard is the new sexy face of the space program.

 
The biggest road block so far, Deke. He has absolutely
no interest or intention of being the sexy face of anything.
He has to solve the mysterious entries and orders that
make no sense. There is something going on.
 
It soon becomes obvious that he can use Jessicas help.
And she needs him to cooperate. Soon, they cant keep
their hands off each other. And time is running out for
the shuttle. Now, Deke is manning the next flight out.
They have to help each other, using everything they
can think of to solve the mystery.
 

Space in His Heart is a wonderful love story that
will get you excited again. And not just excited
about romance. We have to hope that Jessica
and Deke can figure it out. We have to hope that the
shuttle will make it back in one piece. We have to
hope that two very stubborn people can let go
and love.
This is one of Roxanne St Claires older stories.
But I enjoyed it. And I hope you will too.

The Fundamentals of Caring - Movie Review

The Fundamentals of Caring
Movie Review
 
 
If you are looking for something different to watch.
Something on Netflix. Something with the unfairness
of the world in spades. Plenty of anger.
As well as love. Love. Love. Love.
The Fundamentals of Caring.
 
 
This movie has been sitting on My List for some
time. It looked like something to try when I could not
find anything else at all. 
Starring Paul Rudd, about 1 hour 37 minutes.
We ended up enjoying the heck out of this one.
A complete surprise.
I would not recommend with little kids.
But mid teens and up, yes.
There is a lot of language. But there is also a lot
of life. Good, bad and learning.
I hope you will enjoy it! If you watch it, please
let me know what you thought of it!

What We Find by Robyn Carr

What We Find
by Robyn Carr

 
 Not all wonderful stories, movies or writers can make us cry.
Sometimes, it's the readers mood of the day. Or maybe it's just the
writers style. Sometimes, I don't feel the emotion
because the writers style just does not find that in me.
But this one, this writer, this story, they will find it in you.
They will find it all in you.
Maggie is an amazing neurosurgeon. She finds herself burning
out. In need of a break and her father runs a campground.
The perfect place to refuel. Maggie has been there long 
enough to figure it out. She knows what she wants.
She wants it all. As she drove into the parking lot at her
fathers place, she came upon a mess. Picnic tables turned over.
A collapsed tent. A smashed up police cruiser. And people
standing up on the porch staring, telling her to stay in her car.


"There, in the grassy area between the store and the campsites,
the bull was grazing lazily. But it was very clear that before he
settled down to lunch, he'd scared everyone half to death.
She looked a the ceiling of her car. "When I said all, I
wasn't counting on this!"

I won't tell you the rest of that story, but it isn't the most
unusual part of this book. And at least, it isn't a spoiler.

Cal is a drifter just biding his time til the weather improves
enough to get hiking. He is helping out, glad to pay his
own way. And a total mystery. Even his name is a fun mystery.

I have read a number of Robyn Carr books. They are always
a pleasure. Just as this one has been. There is always a lot
of story in each book. Romance. Action (see bull excerpt above).
Family is often a big part. And community. I hope you will
find the time to enjoy this one.
What We Find is
book one of the Sullivans Crossing series.


My mom gave me this copy of What We Find.

The Shack - Movie Review

The Shack
Movie Review
 

My husband and I have been looking forward to this movie
for a very long time. He read the book several times quite
a long time ago. I have not read it at all.
We saw the trailer for it a year ago or so.
If you disappeared from the web and have not seen
the trailer for it, here it is.
 
 
It is a movie to make you think. In a good way.
We enjoyed it very much. I will gladly go see it again.
It is not preachy at all.
There is really not much more to say about it.
But I hope you will like it as much as we did.

Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie - Audio version

Bet Me
Audio version
by Jennifer Crusie
 

I had never read Jennifer Crusie. I have seen her books
around many times. They always looked good. I think
 I found this one on sale and decided to try it.
Well whoopee do!!! Goodie for me! It was terrific.
 
Deanna Hurst is the narrator. She did a marvelous job!
When I saw that the book was 12 hours long, I was torn.
Between feeling like I was getting a lot for my money
and worried that I would never finish it. But it flies by.
Deanna has to manage a load of characters and make
each one distinct. She does just that.
 
 
I wont try to explain anything of the story except
you can imagine there is a bet. Oh is there ever a bet.
But if you ask Cal Morrisey, he will tell you, loudly,
"I never made the bet!"
 
Its a story of one mistake, one misunderstanding,
one case of lust and many, many, many donuts.
I have not had so much fun listening to a story
in a long time. It's such a fun case of falling in love.
Deep, true, strong love. Everlasting.
Minerva and Cal are only two of the fabulous
characters that Jennifer Crusie has written.
You will get your moneys worth with this one.
And you will laugh til your sides hurt.
 
I bet you will love it.

Susan's Review of Perfect For You by Candis Terry




Candis Terry is one of my favorite authors. I love her unique characters, their families and the small town atmosphere she creates in each of her series. Perfect for You is Ms. Terry’s new novel and it's a modern, fast- paced twist on the office romance.

“And yet, somewhere along the way, Brooke had become much more than an employee. She’d become an essential part of the reason he got up every morning and came to work. Over the past few weeks, when he wasn’t looking, she’d escalated to being everything he’d ever wanted but could never have.’

Investment advisor Declan Kincade and Brooke Hastings , his executive assistant, are featured in Perfect for You. The Kincade family members are dealing with the unexpected death of their parents. Declan feels he needs to return to Sunshine Vineyard to support his family and to help them sort through the family vineyard’s financial situation. He is torn between his work and family obligations. Brooke suggests that she and Dec visit his family together. She will keep him on task with regard to his business while he works with his brothers and sisters to figure out the vineyard’s financial situation.

I loved the road trip piece of the novel! The attraction between the couple sizzled from the minute Dec pulled up to Brooke’s driveway and this drew me into the story, Declan is surprised to see Brooke in casual clothes and that her puppy is going on the trip with them. I enjoyed reading the scenes where Brooke encourages Dec to slow down and enjoy the trip—to have fun. Their 15 -hour trip made me laugh especially when Brooke tempted health conscious Declan to try junk food and convinced Dec to take the scenic route to his family’s home. I admired Brooke’s devotion to Dec and her desire to have him slow down and enjoy life… and the way she went about it!


It took me a while to warm up to Declan. He was so stubborn; so work oriented and couldn’t see what was in front of him! I felt he played the ‘I am your boss” card with Brooke whenever things got a little too much for him. The author did a great job navigating the complicated romance between these characters. Candis Terry writes fabulous heroes. She is able to give the reader understanding into their thoughts and actions through the conversations between the characters. The conversations between Declan and his brothers helped me understand Declan’s perspective.

Candis Terry delivers a superlative passionate romance and she weaves in several secondary stories into the plot. I am interested to find out what happened to the vineyard. Was Mr. Kincade blackmailed? Did he gamble? And what exactly does Aunt Pippy know? The characters have hard choices to make as their story unfolds. Declan and Brooke’s journey is filled with emotion, lots of humor and love. The conclusion to the novel has several unexpected surprises and was perfect for the couple! Looking forward to the next book in this series!

Starlight Bridge is a compassionate second chance at love romance. The novel is set at Greystone Manor which is located in Harmony Harbor, a coastal suburb north of Boston. Debbie Mason writes an amazing, heartwarming love story for Ava DiRossi and Ethan Gallagher.

Ava DiRossi and the members of the Harmony Harbor Widows Club learn that the late Colleen Gallagher wrote a book about her life and her secrets. Harmony Harbor is a small town where everyone knows everybody’s business. As the owner of Greystone Manor, Colleen knew many of the locals and more secrets than anyone else. And Colleen’s book is hidden somewhere at Greystone Manor. Ava DiRossi confided in Colleen many years ago. Ava’s secret is deeply personal and if it was revealed could cause much heartache.

Ethan Gallagher and several of his relatives travel to Greystone Manor because they need to decide the fate of Greystone Manor. Should they sell the property to a developer or try to restore the building and family business? Ava , who is working as a maid at the Manor, is searching for the missing book in her ex-husband Ethan’s room when she hears his voice. Loved the scene when Ethan finds Ava, it was very well done!

Ava and Ethan’s feelings towards each other are very strong. Their attraction drew me into the story. They loved each other. I wondered what caused Ava to leave her marriage and nursing school. Why didn’t they fight for their marriage? What did Collen know about Ava? These questions intrigued me and kept me reading the novel past my bedtime.

Debbie Mason has written a well-paced emotional novel that touches upon several topics that are important in a marriage, trust and communication. The author does a fabulous job with continuing the feud between the DiRossi and Gallagher families and having Colleen’s ghost appear throughout the novel. The conclusion to the story holds several surprises—I enjoyed being surprised! Kudos to Debbie Mason for a fabulous story. And, yes the ending made me cry!

Looking forward to the next book in the series!

She sensed Griffin rising to his feet and heard him placing his mug on the desk. And then he was there, crouched in front of her. He took her mug, setting it on the floor before he gently smoothed the rough pads of his fingers over her cheek. “You know it kills me to see you cry.” “Still?” she murmured without looking at him. “Yeah, looks like,” he said, sounding as though the admission cost him. 

A tiny flicker of hope ignited inside her. She smothered it, unwilling to put herself in the position of being disappointed. She didn’t think her heart could withstand another blow today. “I know you did more than smooth the way for my father, Griffin. I don’t believe Gino’s monthly pension checks and insurance will come close to covering the cost. I need to know what I owe you. I doubt I can pay it all at once though, so maybe we could come up with a monthly payment plan?” 

At her suggestion, a muscle pulsed in his clenched jaw, and his eyes narrowed. She was familiar with that look. It didn’t bode well for her repayment plan. And maybe because of that small hope that refused to be denied, she raised her hand to trace his stubbled jaw with her finger. 

"You know that look always annoyed me,” she said, thinking back to how long it had been since she’d touched him this way. “Yeah, and you always knew how to get rid of it. Never could hold out against you for long.” His eyes darkened as though remembering their standoffs always ended in bed.

 “What are we doing?” she whispered, the heat in his eyes weakening her resolve. She had to know if it was just her imagination. She’d deal with the consequences later. “I—” The study door swung open, and her cousin rushed in. “Ava, are—Oh, I…” Sophie’s gaze moved from Griffin to Ava. “Am I interrupting?” Griffin rose to his feet, and Ava didn’t know if it was relief or regret she saw on his face. He glanced at his watch. “I better get going. I have to meet up with Sully.” 

Ah, so it had been relief after all, she thought, fighting to keep the disappointment from showing on her face. Sophie smiled, stepping in front of Griffin as he walked to the door. “Welcome home,” she said, giving him a hug. “We’re so glad you took the job.” 

“Job?” Ava asked, and there it was again, hope. Only this time it came out in her voice. Griffin turned with his hand on the doorknob. “Sully offered me a job with the Coast Guard. Thought it was about time I came home.” He held her gaze. “We’ll talk later. If you need me, call.” Sophie stared at her, openmouthed. “He…You.” Sophie found her voice and looked from the door to Ava. “

What did I just interrupt?” “I’m not sure,” she murmured, glad she was sitting, otherwise her legs might have given out.

A Little Chaos

A Little Chaos
Movie Review
 
 
A wonderful romantic beautiful movie.
I was not able to see it when it was in the
theaters. Dreadful. I am sure it must have
been extraordinary to see on the big screen.
 
Starring Kate Winslet. A wonderful actress.
There are several more terrific actors showing
off the great character writing. 
And then, there is the amazing Alan Rickman.
I believe I read somewhere that this was his
last real work. What a way to go out.
 

Mr Rickman will of course, always be the mysterious
Snape from the Harry Potter movies. But here, in
A Little Chaos, he is a lost king with a strong
romantic side. Oh such a well written character.
The whole movie is full of them.
I believe you can pay to rent or you can buy
 this on Amazon. I borrowed a copy from my library.
However you can make it happen, I heartily
recommend it.
 
 
 
Love wins in the end. The romance is abundant,
of course. The scenes and background are
marvelous! Lavishly shot and a story well told.
