Short and Sweet Reviews on Road Trip Reads
I read a lot on my trip but did not do any reviews. I decided to do short and sweet reviews on all the Netgalley book I read for review. Here is the list. No links, no covers just short reviews posted here and on Goodreads.
The Brigadier’s Runaway Bride by Erica Ridley – It seems that a return from the dead does not mean a happily ever after for Edmund and Sarah. There is till love on both sides so there is a HEA.
Getting Wilde by Jenn Stark – Just did not see the point of this one. It was all backstory and world building and then it was just like the author got tired of writing and just quit.
Good Earl Gone Bad by Manda Collins – Easy to read with a familiar story line. Another won at cards romance but with a twist. Well done with some interesting twists.
A Winter Wedding by Brenda Novak – There is a new love story in Whiskey Creek. Novak keeps up the tension in another romance that seems doomed to fail. Of course that is not going to happen in Whiskey Creek
The Colton Bodyguard by Carla Cassidy – A good addition to the series. Each author does a great job keeping everything on track.
Primal Force by D.D. Ayres – Book three in the K-9 Rescue series this is another great story with two wounded people who connect because of a service dog. Good addition to the series.
Christmas in Mustang Creek by Linda Lael Miller – A new character with a good story line. Another fun romance for Miller fans. Look for Mrs. Llozz and see who you think she is.
Evergreen Springs by RaeAnne Thayne – New addition to this series. The story is a great fit and the characters are interesting. I liked Thayne’s previous series and this one is shaping up to be just as good.
The Last Chance Christmas Ball by Mary Jo Putney, Jo Beverley, Joanna Bourne, Particia Rice, Nicola Cormick – Each author did a very good job with each short story. Each had good characters. Each was a short story and there were no wasted words in any. Great for when you want a quick satisfying read.
A Curious Beginning by Deanna Raybourn – Raybourn has another winner. I was kept guessing the entire book. The clues were there. Everything from the plot to the back-story added to the mystery.
Heirs of Empire by Evan Currie – Currie writes exciting stories and Heirs of Empire is a good example. There is danger, tension, and betrayal mixed with an interesting plot and great characters. It has a lot of interesting concepts that make it Sci-Fi but not Space Opera.
Wish Bound by J. C. Nelson – Book three in the series. I found that I was a little lost as I had not read book 2. Even so a good story that continues to keep the world building and back story going while moving the series forward.
Protecting the Colton Bride by Elle James – Those Colton just keep finding trouble while falling love. Very nice series where each story is written by different authors and everything still holds together.
Inherit the Stars by Tessa Elwood – Great story. Every action has an reaction and that is the basis of Inherit the Stars. Asa is the main character and I loved the fact that her actions were always about others. This is character driven with twists and turns in every chapter.
Fool's Quest by Robin Hobb – This was a Did Not Finish. I just could not get into the story this time.
