Every year it seems like more and more holiday themed romance novels are being written and why not? The holidays are seen as a wonderous time, a time where people can fall in love in a matter of days and when the unexplained happens, we can chalk it up to the magic of the season. I am willing to overlook implausible scenarios in holiday romances as long as I’m enjoying the story,the characters are believable,and there are other aspects of the book that are likable. The Holiday Swap is a book that shouldn’t and wouldn’t work in real life, but it’s so charming that I couldn’t help but like it.Continue reading “The Holiday Swap”
Don’t let the cutesy cover fool you. “It Happened One Summer,” Tessa Bailey’s newest book brings the heat with several swoon-worthy sex scenes and contains some of the most blush-inducing dirty talk I’ve read in a contemporary romance recently. This was a fun and sweet book that I couldn’t put down and I highly recommend it.Continue reading “It Happened One Summer”
I don’t know why I waited so long to read this book. It has been on my radar since it was released and I had heard good things but it took being quarantined for me to read a book about my profession (maybe this is a sign that I’m missing work.) While marketed as a true crime book, this is also a love letter to libraries and the librarians that dedicate their lives to ensuring these institutions stay vital parts of the community they serve. I would recommend this for anyone who has ever wondered what librarians do all day.
