All The Butterflies in the World

All The Butterflies in the World
Posted 15 January 2015 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review All The Butterflies in the World picked up right at the same moment as the previous book ended.  John and Tess are face to face and it is clear that the Butterfly Effect is in play.  While I am fascinated with that theory, it almost made me a little sad to know that the […]

The Sun, the Moon and Maybe the Trains

My Review This book was unlike anything I have read before, an interesting mix of the historical and the contemporary.  The characters were so different from one another, the contrast keeping the dynamic between them interesting and often funny.  Their interaction truly showed the difference 134 years can make in a society. John Bartley was […]

My Review I absolutely loved this book!  I loved the emotions it stirred.  I loved the characters.  I loved the 90s music references.  I loved the mystery and the intrigue.  I loved it all! Lainey’s character is one that many of us can relate to, I think.  She is grieving and sad and lost.  Nothing […]

My Review On the Fly is the second book in the Portland Storm and just as deeply intense and moving as the first.  The romance in these books is beautiful, made that much more beautiful in light of the pain and emotions of the rest of the story.  It  isn’t light and it isn’t fluffy.  But […]

My Review This had so many elements of the classic romance novel.  The girl falls in love with her brother’s best friend.  The girl has issues and turns to the hot guy friend and they fall in love.  Big tough guy has a tender heat.  But even with all of these things, this story is […]

Boneseeker

My Review Boneseeker was far different than I had anticipated.  I have never been big into Sherlock Holmes, but I love mysteries and this seemed like something new and different, something outside of my usual reads. The story centers around Arabella Holmes and Henry Watson, the children of the famed Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. […]

My Review This is the second novella in the Under the Hood series.  I love that these books center around independent women who work in nontraditional jobs, doing for themselves AND other women.  It’s a great bit of female empowerment in a fun way. This time, the story focuses on Melody Swan, a woman who comes […]

My Review A Tale of Witchwood Park is the first book in the new Witchwood Park series. the first of five intended novels.  It is a short novel, just about 61 pages and is intended for younger readers.  I love books of magic and whimsy for children and this book fits the bill perfectly! The three […]
