Image
How hard would you fight for the one you love? Taryn Landry was there that awful night fourteen years ago when Long Acre changed from the name of a town to the title of a national tragedy. Everyone knows she lost her younger sister. No one knows it was her fault.

Falling in love was never part of the plan…  Shaw Miller has spent more than a decade dealing with the fallout of his brother’s horrific actions. After losing everything—his chance at Olympic gold, his family, almost his sanity—he’s changed his name, his look, and he’s finally starting a new life. As long as he keeps a low profile and his identity secret, everything will be okay, right?  When the world and everyone you know defines you by one catastrophic tragedy… How do you find your happy ending?   Amazon:  https://amzn.to/2QGNetj B&N:  http://bit.ly/2QIpuFv iBooks

The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen Published: January 9, 2018 Format: audiobook via Overdrive Ratings: 3/5 Synopsis When you read this book, you will make many assumptions. You will assume you are reading about a jealous ex-wife. You will assume she is obsessed with her replacement – a beautiful, younger woman who is about to marry the man they both love. You will assume you know the anatomy of this tangled love triangle. Assume nothing. Twisted and deliciously chilling, Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen's The Wife Between Us exposes the secret complexities of an enviable marriage - and the dangerous truths we ignore in the name of love. My Thoughts I kept hearing a lot of this novel so when I finally finished it I was so on the fence. In The Wife Between Us it was labeled as a thriller and so I went into this looking for that but I never got it. There were parts when I was confused as to who was who and in the beginning, I f

The Deal of a Lifetime by Fredrik Backman Published: October 31, 2017 Publisher: Atria Books Format: audiobook via Overdrive Ratings: 4/5 Synopsis A father and a son are seeing each other for the first time in years. The father has a story to share before it’s too late. He tells his son about a courageous little girl lying in a hospital bed a few miles away.

As he talks about this plucky little girl, the father also reveals more about himself: his triumphs in business, his failures as a parent, his past regrets, his hopes for the future. Now, on a cold winter’s night, the father has been given an unexpected chance to do something remarkable that could change the destiny of a little girl he hardly knows. But before he can make the deal of a lifetime, he must find out what his own life has actually been w

Review: Goldie Vance Vol. 3 & 4 by Hope Larson

  Goldie Vance Vol 3&4 by Hope Larson Published: November 21, 2017 / November 7, 2017 Publisher: BOOM! Box Format: via Hoopla Ratings: 4/5 & 5/5 My Thoughts In Volume 3 we find Goldie back at it when she thinks someone is trying to sabotage a major race coming up. Not only that but she thinks someone is trying to hurt her old childhood friend Sugar but Goldie is determined to find who it is and maybe even find some common ground with Sugar again. I really enjoyed this one especially since we get a little more drama and more of a backstory when it comes to Sugar. In Volume 4 all havoc breaks loose when a huge music festival comes to Florida but something is off when major power outages could ruin everything. However, something doesn’t add up since it only happens when a certain bands song play. Who is behind all of this and will Goldie and friends be able to solve this and make the festival go off without a hitch? This one by far was my fave! I loved the mus
