Jen G: Snow White by Jenni James


Jenni does such a wonderful job of re-energizing the classic fairy tales. I always enjoy reading her books!

I loved the dynamic of multiple love stories. Raven is also such an amazing character that you don't always get to know in other versions.

Brooke H: Tying the Knot Review

I really felt like this book brought all of the stories of the Newport Ladies to a wonderful ending.

I am a person who loves happy endings, and this book made sure all of the ladies a happy ending. It tied all of the books together perfectly, and was a very enjoyable read.

Thanks!

Jen G: The Frozen Trail by Lisa Dayley

I just finished The Frozen Trail by Lisa Dayley.

It was good.  I love reading about the pioneers so I expected to enjoy it a little more than I did.  There wasn't anything original about it from all the other pioneer books that are out there.  But still a nice quick read.

Colbi J's SBT14 Reading List

1.) Diamond Rings are Deadly Things by: Rachelle Christensen
   
2.) Twisted Fate by: Traci Abramson, Greg Luke, Stephanie Black
  
3.) Cookies to Die for by: Dene Low
  
4.) The Outcasts by: John Fanagan

Jen G: Chances Are by Traci Hunter Abramson

Chances Are is such a great book! I have read it several times and loved it again! I have read all of Abramson's books and loved each.

This is a fun change of pace from her other action books but this still has enough to it to keep you turning the pages. And I loved the characters. I wonder if she will revisit any of these characters in future books.

Jen G: Unraveled by Julie Daines

I read Unraveled and loved it!

I thought it was fun, creative and a great read!  I loved that it had a couple twists that I didn't see coming and I loved who she ended up with in the end!

I give it 4.5 stars out of 5! 

I will definitely read more by this amazing author!

Jen G: Mansfield Ranch Review

I just finished Mansfield Park. I loved it! I read it in a day and a half.

Jenni James is an amazing author with such a neat personal story that I love supporting her by reading her books.

This book was fun and one of my favorites by her.

~Jen

Brook H: The Lost Art Review

The Lost Art was a fun read with twists that I never expected. I love it when an author takes me by surprise, and I actually gasped out loud at one point.

Ava is an art curator for a museum that is having a special showing for some priceless art. One of them is stolen under her watch, and we get a little mystery with our clean, fun romance.

It was a fun book, a lighthearted read that took me away for a little while. Great writing and description, it made me picture things so perfectly.
