Thanks to my Cloudlibrary app I just finished this steamy historical #romantsy . She is a poor but proud fortune hunting debutante and he‘s the catch of the season: Rich, handsome and wicked! So naughty!

I‘ve started reading Christmas #romantsy novels early this year. I almost read this one in a day but I have to work this afternoon so I had to get some sleep. Finished this morning and enjoyed the meet cute so much. Handsome traveler, Vim comes to the aid of a crying baby, held in the inept arms of the beautiful Sophie. A lovely HEA holiday confection

This book started slow so made a good lunch time read. An epistolary novel , it was easy to read in 15-20 minute chunks. But things picked up and I ended up bringing it home to read. I just had to know what happened. Easy to read and gentle story bringing to life village life during the beginning of WWII ( around the time of Dunkirk ) I would love a post war sequel. 👍👍

Under Currents | Nora Roberts

Finished listening to my Cloudlibrary audiobook, I really enjoyed the narrator, she does very believable voices for the individual characters. The story is very familiar , a woman with a tragic past meets kind small town fellow- love happens - then nasty , violent events threaten the lovers . Saw the ending coming for miles. When you read Nora Roberts you know what to expect and she delivers.

Finished my lunch book. This one is written well before mobile phones and it seems like an almost historical work. The author decides to follow the cherry blossom blooms by hitchhiking the length of Japan. Some funny stories but he sometimes comes across as an “ugly” Canadian. It‘s okay but I would not recommend it.

This is one of Mary Balogh‘s older books , first copyright around thirty years ago , December 1989. I quite enjoyed it, but not my favourite. Alexandra has been brought up in a very strict and repressive home. One evening she is “accidentally kidnapped “ and must marry to save herself from “ruin” , pretty standard. What makes it a pick is the Raine family, two brothers and a sister at the heart ♥️ of this trilogy

I listened to the audiobook I borrowed from Cloudlibrary , unfortunately I had no access to the PDF file with recipes etc. So I felt like I was missing half the book. No photos either. I enjoyed Reese Witherspoon ‘s narration but I hope to find the actual book at my next book sale

Gotta love a long lazy Sunday, finished the last twenty minutes of this audiobook from Cloudlibrary. Elizabeth Gilbert has a great reading voice, I own the actual book but I just couldn‘t get into it. The audiobook is more accessible but I‘m not sure 🤔 I believe her theories about creativity. Maybe I‘m not the audience this book was written for. I wish there was a choice between Pick and So-so. Her voice was soothing and helped me fall asleep.

Centique I haven‘t read this but you made me laugh about the nice voice for falling to sleep! I have a couple of favourite podcasts - and if I can‘t sleep - I play old ones to fall asleep to! It‘s an under-rated quality, having a good voice for falling asleep! 😂😂 2mo

Couldn‘t resist buying a new historical #romantsy at my favourite indie bookstore. This one isn‘t in the database: Lady Maggie Wentworth is kidnapped by her late brother‘s friend who mistakenly believes he‘s saving her from life in a high class bordello. She was there as an investigative journalist, interviewing the ladies. Hi-jinks ensue . This author is new to me - cross fingers- that it‘s funny and hot 🐉

ravenlee I have read some Lynsey Sands and enjoyed the story - but the editing/proofreading was abysmal. Like, horribly distracting grammatical and typographical errors on 2/3 pages. I hope yours is in better shape! 5mo

Oprah is an amazing human being. But I find myself wishing for a rating between a pick and a so-so. I listened to the audiobook and loved the format , Oprah read the main text and her guests read their quotes. But it really reminded me of the audiobook of The Secret, in fact a couple of voices were the same in both books. Overall a good message but nothing new. I respect and admire Oprah so I‘m going with pick.

This is book three of The Shetland series, I missed book two, I quite often read series out of order. A solid mystery with lots of red herrings, I guessed wrong. Shetland is as much a character as the humans who live there, a look into island life a cross the pond.
