book reviews only ghouls and horses just a wild ghost chase dan harris

Dan Harris was kind enough to send me copies of both of these novels, the first two books in his Unit 13 series, so of course I have to review them together. It only makes sense, right? I adore ghosts, but ghost stories tend to be too scary for me. Fortunately, the descriptions of these … Continue reading Book Reviews: Only Ghouls and Horses + Just a Wild Ghost Chase by Dan Harris

Book Reviews: The Spice Master at Bistro Exotique by Samantha Verant + A Mother Would Know by Amber Garza

book reviews the spice master at bistro exotique samantha verant a mother would know amber garza

Really, these two books have nothing in common, except their December publication dates. One is women's fiction/romance set in Paris that involves a ton of food and romance between two chefs. The other is a domestic thriller that involves mother-child relationships. They really shouldn't be paired together, except for the fact that one is by … Continue reading Book Reviews: The Spice Master at Bistro Exotique by Samantha Verant + A Mother Would Know by Amber Garza

Book Reviews: The Banned Bookshop of Maggie Banks by Shauna Robinson + Ship Wrecked by Olivia Dade

book reviews the banned bookshop of maggie banks shauna robinson ship wrecked olivia dade

Not only are both of these romances, though I'd argue the romance in the first one was much weaker and it really should be women's fiction, but these two are also the only two NetGalley books I have that are publishing this month. How that happened, I have no idea, but I guess I'm just … Continue reading Book Reviews: The Banned Bookshop of Maggie Banks by Shauna Robinson + Ship Wrecked by Olivia Dade
