Bryce has liked Paige since they were little but has never had the guts to act on his feelings. Paige is devastated over being dumped by her long-time boyfriend and can’t seem to move on. They’re stuck in a rut, until fate decides to pull them out.

Both Paige and Bryce are talked into seeing a fortune teller at the annual Summer’s End Carnival. Neither of them buys into the mysticism, until the psychic’s predictions start coming true. Now, the most bizarre things are happening and there isn’t a clear explanation. Each of them must figure out if they’re the subject of an elaborate hoax or a bigger plan forged by destiny.

*This book is part one of two. Books should be read sequentially.

Kathryn Cooper Writes Review

This was a fun read full of families, best friends, and teen romance. Everyone in the group of friends had some possible romance happening, but this story just focuses on Paige and Bryce.

The story begins on the first day of school. Paige had been depressed all summer because her 2 year long boyfriend had broken up with her. She tried to hold it together, but her emotions were rough when she saw her ex at lunch with another girl.

Bryce had been her friend for years and had secretly liked her. He happily stepped in to be her fake boyfriend. It’s fun to hear from both of these characters during their fake/new relationship.

Overall this was a fun read, but there was some annoying teenage boy jokes that I would’ve liked out of the book.

If you like clean teen romance with some possible magic then I recommend your read Fate & Fortune by Robin Daniels.

Kismet & Karma

(Fate & Fortune #2)

By Robin Daniels

YA Contemporary Romance, Duology

ebook, 270 Pages

October 25th 2018

Bryce and Paige belong together, but they’ll never make it happen alone. When inspiration strikes in multiple ways, a friend decides it can’t be a coincidence; it’s a call to action. With a little luck, the help of fate, and the matchmaking plan of the century, Bryce and Paige just might get their happy ending.

You heard Paige and Bryce’s version of the story in Fate & Fortune. Now join Eric, Amy, Cody, Kennedy and Genie to see how things really went down.

***This book completes the series. Book one can be read as a standalone, but book two cannot. Fate & Fortune should be read first.***

LINKS: Goodreads | Amazon | B&N | CBD | Book Depository | Harlequin


MY REVIEW: 5 STARS!

A contemporary clean romance with little adorable twins and a firefighter daddy?! Win, Win in my book. 😉

I love how Love Inspired books are short but deep reads. This story kept up the pace the way I like it, not too slow, not too fast. Shay and Natalie are the main characters that switch telling the story. I enjoy learning more personal things about the characters before they share it out loud with others. I understood more about the characters personality as their past and present experiences were told.

Natalie is fun, creative, and has been through the loss of a loved one. She doesn’t know if she can handle the risk of having feelings for someone again that she might lose. Shay has gone through a diverse and is responsible for raising 2 year old twin boys. This story is true in telling how young boys act. Believe me. I know. Their mixture of behaviors remind me of my boys at that age.

Heidi McCahan shows us the ups and downs of finding romance in real life situations, not fairy tales. I love the characters and the precious Christian romance! ❤

A Cowboy of Convenience: 5 of 5 STARS Review

On Tour with Prism Book Tours

A Cowboy of Convenience
(Sheridan Sweethearts #2)
By Stacy Henrie
Inspirational Historical Romance
Paperback & ebook, 288 Pages
June 1st 2018 by Love Inspired Historical

Groom by Agreement

A real home–it’s what Vienna Howe dearly wants for her young daughter. Yet the ramshackle property she just inherited hardly qualifies. She can’t afford the repairs–until foreman West McCall suggests they start a dude ranch together. For propriety’s sake, they’ll need a marriage in name only…a practical solution for two wary hearts.

Years ago, West convinced Vienna to marry a man of means, never realizing how cruel her husband could be. Guilt-ridden, he intends to secure the lovely widow’s future. But despite his reluctance to get close to anyone, this union might do more than fix Vienna’s ranch. It could open the door to a warm, loving future…

GoodreadsAmazonBarnes & NobleKoboiBooksGooglePlay

My Review: 5 STARS!
I love this book! I felt the emotions of the characters as I went through the story with them. There were many different parts to the characters’ story that blended so well together. I happily woke up early in the morning just to read this book!

Vienna and West are the main characters. The story is told by switching to the two characters throughout. I enjoy hearing the personal perspective from both Vienna and West.

Vienna had a past marriage that ended, but she had been blessed with a precious daughter. Hattie brings love into the story that only a young child can bring. West shows the perspective of a man that has gone through a difficult choice. He shows tremendous growth. Really he and Vienna both demonstrate growth and learning that we all experience through life’s ups and downs.

If you enjoy reading romance that is clean and sweet then A Cowboy of Convenience is the book for you! It is full of trials, sadness, joys, and love. It is another great Christian Love Inspired Historical read.

Book Review, cami checketts, dead running

Book Review: Dead Running by Cami Checketts

image and summery from GoodReads

Title: Dead Running
Author: Cami Checketts
Publisher: Birch River Publishing
Release Date: April 2012
Pages: 247
Series: Run #1
5 STARS: I LOVED IT!!!

Cassidy Christensen is running. Running from the mercenaries who killed her parents. Running from a scheming redhead intent on making her life miserable. Running from painful memories that sabotage her dreams of happiness. With two very tempting men competing for her attention, she hopes she’ll finally have someone to run to, but can she trust either of them? When secrets from her past threaten her family, Cassidy decides to stop running and fight for her future. A light-hearted suspense with a side of PG-rated romance, Dead Running will have you lacing up your running shoes and impatiently waiting for the sequel.

My Thoughts:

Dead Running had me hooked by the first page. I loved it!

Cassidy was 25, likeable, and easy for me to connect with. Her boy-crazy flirting cracked me up and reminded me of my high school and college years. I might have been a little boy-crazy back in my single days. 😉 There are some great side characters like her sister-in-law Raquel full of fun banter and 2 good looking guys interested in her.

One thing I found annoying was how Cassidy referred to so many characters at the beginning and beyond the beginning by nicknames like Dr. Tattoo, hot redhead, fine looking runner man. It was funny but a little annoying. It didn’t ruining the read for me or anything. Some things I saw coming but was still surprised at how things went down. I really loved this read!

Full of intrigue and mystery I found myself quickly reading to find out what happened! Then I got the next 2 books (novellas) in the series to read even more!

Book Review: Audrey’s Guide to Witchcraft by Jody Gehrman

Title: Audrey’s Guide to Witchcraft
Author: Jody Gehrman
Publisher: Magic Genie Books
Release Date: June 2012
Pages: 293
Series: Audrey’s Guides #1
3 Stars: It Was OK

Falling in Love, baking a magical cake, fighting an evil necromancer—it’s all in a day’s work for Audrey Oliver, seventeen-year-old witch-in-training.

When her mother goes missing and her twenty-one-year-old witchy cousin shows up out of the blue, Audrey knows something’s gone horribly, dangerously wrong. Now it’s up to her to get her own magical powers up to speed before everyone she loves is destroyed by the sorcerer intricately connected to her mother’s secret past.

My Thoughts:
I finished this book a few months ago. It wasn’t really my thing for some reason.

Audrey was a 17 year old junior in high school. Her dad had died when she was 10, and now her mom had gone missing. She looked for clues to find out what happened to her mom. Her older cousin Sadie came to watch them while her mom was away. Sadie was pretty cool and definitely interesting. Audrey had a younger sister Meg to protect and try to keep in the dark of the magical world.

For me the book was too long and felt slow. About 3/4 through it started to get more exciting and intense. I really enjoyed the last 1/4 of the book. If you like books with magic you might like it more than I did. More sexual content and language than I prefer combined with the fact that I didn’t connect with the main character made this book just okay for me.

Content Ratings: highlight between ( ) to view details
Sexual Content: moderate ( suggestive talk, boy found girl hiding in bush naked, kissing, makeout scene: rolling on couch and floor- necking- tongue, mention of groping )
Language: moderate ( God-56, God d***-2, Jesus-1, d***-2, sh**-3, h***-12, a**-16, bi***-1, lesbo-1 )
Violence: moderate ( threats, injuries, attacks, blood, demons, decapitated, torture by magic )
Other: mild ( talk of teen drinking )

Book Review: Kissing Cousins by Marcia Lynn McClure

Title: Kissing Cousins
Author: Marcia Lynn McClure
Publisher: Distractions, Inc.
Release Date: November 2010
Pages: eBook only
Series: none
5 STARS: I LOVED IT!!!

Poppy Amore loved her job waitressing at Good Ol’ Days Family Restaurant. No one could ask for a better working environment. After all, her best friend Whitney worked there, and her boss, restaurant owner Mr. Dexter, was a kind, understanding, grandfatherly sort of man. Furthermore, the job allowed Poppy to linger in the company of Mr. Dexter’s grandson Swaggart Moretti-the handsome and charismatic head cook at Good Ol’ Days.
Secretly, Swaggart was far more to Poppy than just a man who was easy to look at. In truth, she had harbored a secret crush on him for years-since her freshman year in high school, in fact…
When the dazzling, uber-fashionable Mark Lawson appeared one night at Good Ol’ Days, however, Poppy began to believe that perhaps her attention and her heart would be distracted from Swaggart at last…
But all the world knows that real love is not so easily put off, and Poppy began to wonder if even a man so wonderful as Mark Lawson could truly drive Swaggart Moretti from her heart. Would Poppy Amore miss her one chance at happiness, all for the sake of an unfulfilled adolescent’s dream?

My Thoughts:
Another beautifully swoon-worthy book by Marcia Lynn McClure. She is the queen of clean romantic chemistry. Love it!

Poppy was cute and sweet with a long-time crush on Swaggart, the head cook, where she waitressed. I loved the whole scene of the Good Ol’ Days restaurant, fun and homey. Just the name Swaggart made me picture a ruggedly handsome guy which turned out to be the perfect description of Swaggart Moretti.

Don’t worry Kissing Cousins isn’t about actual cousins kissing. 🙂 Poppy’s best friend Whitney was Swaggart’s cousin, and Poppy had a cousin Whitney was interested in so they had made goals to kiss each other’s cousins when they were in high school.

Kissing Cousins was such a fun and cute romantic read. I loved it!!! If you love contemporary clean romance you’ll LOVE this book.

Title: Poison
Author: Bridget Zinn

Release Date: March 2013
Pages: 288
Series: none
4 Stars: I Really Liked It

Sixteen-year-old Kyra, a highly-skilled potions master, is the only one who knows her kingdom is on the verge of destruction—which means she’s the only one who can save it. Faced with no other choice, Kyra decides to do what she does best: poison the kingdom’s future ruler, who also happens to be her former best friend.

But, for the first time ever, her poisoned dart . . . misses.

Now a fugitive instead of a hero, Kyra is caught in a game of hide-and-seek with the king’s army and her potioner ex-boyfriend, Hal. At least she’s not alone. She’s armed with her vital potions, a too-cute pig, and Fred, the charming adventurer she can’t stop thinking about. Kyra is determined to get herself a second chance (at murder), but will she be able to find and defeat the princess before Hal and the army find her?

Kyra is not your typical murderer, and she’s certainly no damsel-in-distress—she’s the lovable and quick-witted hero of this romantic novel that has all the right ingredients to make teen girls swoon.

My Thoughts:
Poison was such a fun book! Don’t you love the cover?! Kyra looks like the totally fierce potioner she is, and look you can even see the little pig Rosie peeking her head out.

Kyra was 16 years old and kind of a loner. Well it’s hard to know at first if she was a loner by personality or situation since she was a fugitive for trying to murder the princess, aka her best friend. I loved how the story started out right in the midst of the action not giving the reader a ton of background for the main character. Kyra was a bit of a mystery, but then the author started putting in flashbacks to fill us in on what had happened to get Kyra to where she currently was. I loved the flashbacks; they were perfect.

Fred was a ton of fun. The BEST part of the book was when he met Kyra while crossing a river. Let’s just say it was a little awkward for Kyra and a little too much fun for Fred. LOL so great. I loved the spark of life Fred brought to the story. Ari was spunky and fun too.

Poison was full of fun, adventure, mystery, and romance. You’ll really enjoy it!

5 STARS: I LOVED IT!!!

Marianne Daventry will do anything to escape the boredom of Bath and the amorous attentions of an unwanted suitor. So when an invitation arrives from her twin sister, Cecily, to join her at a sprawling country estate, she jumps at the chance. Thinking she’ll be able to relax and enjoy her beloved English countryside while her sister snags the handsome heir of Edenbrooke, Marianne finds that even the best laid plans can go awry.

From a terrifying run-in with a highwayman to a seemingly harmless flirtation, Marianne finds herself embroiled in an unexpected adventure filled with enough romance and intrigue to keep her mind racing. Will she be able to rein in her traitorous heart, or will a mysterious stranger sweep her off her feet? Fate had something other than a relaxing summer in mind when it sent Marianne to Edenbrooke.

My Thoughts:
Oh my this book was AMAZING!!! I loved it!! This is a book I would recommend to everyone who loves a good romance, a little excitement, mystery, and a lot of laughs.

From the beginning I was attached to Marianne. The poor girl had been shipped off to the city after the death of her mother. Her father had sent her to family in one place and sent her twin sister to another. Separated from her family and the beautiful countryside she felt lost. She left to meet up with her sister at Edenbrooke as soon as the invitation came.

The scenery was breathtaking and made me want to visit the English countryside. Sigh. Maybe one day. I loved the humor that came with some embarrassing moments for Marianne especially in front of handsome men. Just thinking about it makes me want to go re-read this book today.

I’d heard so many good things about Edenbrooke. I don’t know why it took me so long to finally read it! If you want a beautiful, relaxing, romantic read go get this book now! You’ll enjoy it.

With his pride and her prejudice, what could possibly go wrong?

When the arrogant Blake Hansen steals Addie Preston’s promotion at the library, he pretty much rubs her nose in it. But Addie, who dreams of being a full-fledged librarian, decides to stick it out. She loves surrounding herself with books and keeping her father’s memory alive in the building where they spent so much time together.

Soon, Addie learns that her beloved library will be torn down to make room for a larger facility, and she has to make a choice. Fight, or let go?

To complicate things, she finds herself attracted to Blake, who is engaged to someone else. Will Blake and Addie ever resolve their differences?

My Thoughts:
This book was a fun and light read. Like many of you I’m a book lover so it was nice to have the main character be a librarian and obsessed with the library and books. When they met, Addie thought her new boss, Blake, was more into business than enjoying the library. Let’s just say they didn’t hit it off at the start. Plus Blake was engaged.

Poor Addie just couldn’t let go of her library. I see why she was attached, but it still annoyed me at times since I’m the opposite of a pack-rat. I feel freedom from throwing things away, but Addie really didn’t want the old library with all her father’s memories replaced.

Blake and Addie had great chemistry. I loved their scenes together, laughing and cringing along with them. Turning Pages was a fun read, perfect for any library lover.

Pages: 448
Series: Grand Tour Series #2
4 STARS: I Really Liked It

For Cora Kensington, the journey of a lifetime takes unexpected twists. And her future—her very life—depends on the decisions she’ll make at each crossroad. As her European tour with her newfound family takes her through Austria, France, and Italy, an unseen enemy trails close behind. Meanwhile, a forbidden love continues to claim her heart, putting everyone’s plans in danger.

And as Cora stays one step ahead of it all, what might need the most protection is her own heart, torn between the dramatic pursuit of a dashing Frenchman and a man who has been quietly staking claim to her affections all along. Love has dangers all its own. She must escape the bonds of the past and discover the faith to make the right choices, as each one has grave consequences.

My Thoughts:
This series really took me on a beautiful guide of Europe, making me want to visit! Next time I’ll have to read it with a map of Europe nearby because I wished I understood the references better. That was a little frustrating.

Cora not only traveled through Europe, but she traveled through love. She had to make decisions on whether she would pursue one or both of the men looking for her attention, Pierre and Will. Pierre was so charming and extremely rich, and Will was so lovable. Pierre was the man her family approved of, and Will was strictly forbidden as a guide on their tour and not rich.

There was mystery and a few tense moments to add to the enjoyment. Overall I loved the story and the characters. Let me say, Hugh was always good for a laugh. Some of the scenery descriptions felt a little long at times, but overall I really enjoyed this read. I look forward to reading book 3 when it comes out in October!
