review 1: This was a wonderful story of love trumping society. I liked the mystery that is the basis for this story as well as the love story that follows through. The despicable characters were truly despicable which made them even better! There were enough bumps and turns that the sto...

review 1: Une jolie histoire digne d'un conte de fée ... La superstar et l'anonyme. Quelques bémols cependant, un fin un peu trop abrupte, une histoire mal répartie (la partie Whiskey creek aurait mérité d'être plus développée pour que la rédemption de Simon paraisse moins facile) et une h...

review 1: This was a great start to the Whiskey Creek series. A quick read for me. Olivia has come home to help plan her sister's wedding to her ex-boyfriend. Not only that, but it's only been 3 months since he fooled around with her sister and she's pregnant. This whole situation with...

review 1: I really enjoyed this story but also since found out it was the second book of three.I really dislike reading stories that connect to each other out of order.I already started book three too.Maybe I'll leave it at that.Not sure yet.But anyways,"The ending was not what I expected,...

review 1: I didn't realize until I went to write a review that this book is #3 in a series. I have no idea what I've missed. I didn't feel like I entered the scene after intermission though. The book is totally self-contained. Maybe the characters are the same in the other books, but...

review 1: I would just say one word for the book - depressing!!I started the book and stopped it after 10 chapters...its very disturbing!! The characters of Colin and Tiffany - which we know from first are the bad characters - are just disturbed characters. It really freaked me out.....aft...

review 1: Knowing who the bad guys were from the very beginning, thus having no mystery, made this book really boring. From about page 100, all I could think was 'For the love of God, just figure it out already." It didn't help that it had an irritantly convoluted plot. Oh, and the main fe...

review 1: I've been enjoying this series, and I really wanted to like this book more than I did. For some reason it just fell flat for me. I never completely bought into them as a couple..... Baxter's side story made me sad as well. I hope that he's going to be okay, and I think that i...

review 1: My least favorite of the series so far, which is too bad because I was really looking forward to it. Presley had been a hot mess when she left town two years ago. She had been into parties, drugs and sex, and Aaron had been her cohort of choice. She had been crazy in love with hi...

review 1: I loved this one too! It is the second in the series so there are characters I already know well and I care about them. There's been a time jump from the first book so we get to learn more about their lives and what's happened. In this case, Laurel has been in a small town for...

review 1: I wasn't impressed with Francesca PI skillz. I don't think I would ever hire her. She seems a bit incompetent and not in a funny Stephanie Plum kinda way.The book had a curious effect of seeming to hover around both the regular plot of a serial killer and the romance plot where...

review 1: DNF (85% in).This story was doing very well, although it is hard to swallow one of the main running threads of the story: that a man as handsome as the devil, charming, sociable, amiable and likable would simply be 'in love' with the memory of a girl he met in his teens (and who ...

review 1: This one caught my eye because it's unlike any historical romance I've ever heard of. It's about a surgeon's daughter, Abby, who is buying corpses from "resurrectionists" (people who dig up the recently deceased) to use for medical purposes. Her father's medical college is suff...
