Best Book
Meltdown, by Susan St. Thomas ☆☆☆☆☆
Suspense, hot

Memories of one magical night had kept Evan Jorgenson sane during his tour in Iraq. When he meets Cassie Hamilton again in Lake Placid, he yearns to pick up where they left off. She deserves more than a shell-shocked soldier. But Cassie’s in danger, and in order to keep her safe, he’s jeopardizing not only his job as a NYS police officer, but a dream promotion. If only she’d talk about what happened in L.A… More…

Caribbean Dreams of Love, by Bess McBride ☆☆☆☆☆
Paranormal, sensual

Daisy and her sixteen-year-old daughter, Lilly, are embarking on a Caribbean cruise. She isn't looking for anything special on the cruise other than a pleasant break from her humdrum existence as long-time divorced single mother to a busy teenage girl. She certainly isn't prepared for an enigmatic man named Peter whose idiosyncrasies in dress and speech mark him as an eccentric person to avoid. But Daisy can't avoid him. In fact, she begins to obsess about him from the first moment she catches him staring at her in the cruise ship terminal. More…

“The book cleverly weaves a tale of pirates, the beauty of the Carribean and the cultivating of friendships that begin in the most unlikely of places….It is rare to find a writer who so consistently pleases her readers book after book. This author makes it a foregone conclusion.” – Laura, You Gotta Read Reviews …full review

Don’t Call Me Darlin’, by Fleeta Cunningham ☆☆☆☆☆
Vintage, spicy

Life in Santa Rita, Texas, 1957: Calm...slow-moving...placid...or it was until that radical librarian and her controversial books came to town. Then the County Judge falls in love with her. And the editor of the local newspaper starts trying to convince the judge that the girl’s a Communist sympathizer. What with the Commissioners in an uproar, two irrepressible teens adding their own brand of confusion, and a menacing midnight caller threatening the girl he loves, Judge Sam Lindley has enough interference in his courtship to sink it. More…

“A special treat! Subtly endearing and thoroughly thought-provoking, DON’T CALL ME DARLIN’ gives us Sam, a hero that is an honest-to-goodness Texas gentleman rancher, politician, friend, and “for-real” lover with humor and depth….This is one for the keeper shelf.” – Camellia, Long and Short Reviews …full review

Finding Joy, by Kara Lynn Russell ☆☆☆☆☆
Inspirational, sweet

Shy Joy Harper, the organist for Orchard Hill Community Church, has long been overlooked by Pastor Isaac. Then Pansy Parker announces she’s retiring and Joy is asked to fill in as secretary. With an unusually large number of weddings coming up and the Christmas holidays looming, Joy and Isaac put in a lot of hours together and he discovers a beautiful and caring woman beneath Joy’s reserved fa├žade. Can he convince her that the only gift he wants for Christmas is her heart?

“This book could have been a bit too sweet, but it wasn’t. Instead the feelings of Isaac and Joy were treated with tenderness and understanding…. I was touched by the way the story developed and I finished the last page with a deep sense of satisfaction.” – Orchid, Long and Short Reviews …full review
