The New Thriller by Lisa Gardner is Outstanding

Touch and Go, the new thriller by Lisa Gardner, can only be described as an edge-of-your seat thrill ride. The story features the kidnapping of a high-flying CEO Justin Denbe, along with his wife, Libby, and their teenage daughter Ashlyn. The Denbe's have the kind of life you read about in the pages of a glossy magazine; a gorgeous brownstone on a tree-lined street in Boston's Back Bay neighborhood, a great marriage, a perfect life.

If you like Debbie Macomber and Jennifer Chiaverini...

Return to Willow Lake by Susan Wiggs

Susan Wiggs is my go-to author when I need a lift. I'd been feeling a bit under the weather for the past week so I scooped up Return to Willow Lake, her latest in the Lakeshore Chronicles series. You can tell from the majority of my blog posts that romance is my favorite genre, but Return to Willow Lake is so much more than just a romance novel. This is a book about family and what's really important in life. Sonnet Romano has always been an overachiever. She works in New York at a worldwide agency that helps underprivileged children.

Valentine’s Day Romance

With Valentine's Day just a few days away, I thought it would be a perfect time to highlight what I consider one of the best romantic trilogies I have read in a long time, The Rosewood Trilogy by Laura Moore. I read the first of the trilogy, Remember Me, last summer. The first book introduces you to the Radcliffe sisters, Margot, Jordan, and Jade, with the focus on Margot. At 18 years of age, Margot leaves home to become a model after her father refuses to let her help manage Rosewood, the family horse-breeding farm in Virginia -- and the man she loves has cast her aside.
