Overkill by Amy Saunders

Book Review

Overkill by Amy Saunders was a fun book to read.  I have to admit that I was lost through parts of this book because I haven’t read any other books in this series.  That being said you can read this book and still understand this story you just won’t understand some of the backstory like me.  Anyway lets get back to this book.  I loved all the characters and the way that this book is written.  I am for sure going to go back and read the other books in this series because the author does a great job of writing and making you feel as  though the characters are real life people.  If you love mystery books than make sure you check this one out.

About The Book

Summer in Portside: The beach! The gelato! The murder…

Belinda’s peace from scandal and her grandmother is short-lived when a painting – and then a body – wash up on her favorite beach. As she and Bennett team with Det. Jonas Parker to figure out how the two connect, a possible art forgery comes to light – and another victim.

Belinda continues to grow into her new role as a part-time amateur detective, swimming through suspects and broken connections, while Bennett starts to rebuild his life, and Jonas breaks free from work to pursue a potential new romance.

With the heat of summer upon them, the future is more unpredictable than ever.

Climax by Christina George

Book Review

Climax by Christina George this was a good book just like the first 2 were.  If you missed my reviews of book one and/or book two you should check them out before you read this review because some of my thoughts have changed about the characters in the books.  I loved the first 2 books but by the time I got halfway through this book I was so tired of Kate and how she couldn’t seem to make up her mind about who she wanted to be with.  I still loved the characters but I was super annoyed with her because she kept bouncing between the two of them.  I did love how the series ended and who she ended up with.  I think it ended perfectly and I was sad to see the characters go because after 3 books I loved the characters and the whole plot of this book.

About The Book

Kate Mitchell has never forgiven herself for breaking Nick Lavigne’s heart. Now he’s back and he’s moved on, and it’s affecting Kate’s life more than she’s willing to admit.

Kate Mitchell has everything. She’s the head of a crazy successful publishing house, engaged to the traffic-stopping sexy Mac Ellis and she’s about to sign one of the biggest authors of her career.

And that’s when everything falls apart.

Everything is perfect…until it’s not.

In a city of 8 million people Kate manages to run into someone she never expected to see again.

Nick is handsome, impossibly kind, every girl’s dream, and Kate’s former fiancé. He’s also the brother of the rising star author she’s trying to sign. Now that Nick’s back in town and has moved on he insists he’s over Kate, but part of him still can’t get past how amazing they were, and his sister won’t let anyone forget how brutally it ended.

When Mac is dealt a life-changing blow, it forces Kate to question every single choice she’s made.

Follow Kate as she embarks on a journey of life and love, navigating through the decisions that will change it all forever.

About The Author

Christina George has worked in publishing for twenty years (give or take). Here’s what this book isn’t. It’s not a slam against publishing (though it is broken) and it’s not a slam against authors (though some of them are crazy). This book is not autobiographical though many of the stories are true. No you won’t know which ones, cause it’s more fun to guess, right? George continues to work in publicity and helps authors because at the end of the day she does love books, she loves publishing, and she loves authors. She hopes you’ll enjoy this romp through Kate’s world as much as she enjoyed creating it.

Shelf Life by Christina George

Book Review

Shelf Life by Christina George was a great sequel to “The Publicist“.  I started this one the minute after I finished “The Publicist” because I was so in love with the characters and I had to know what happened next in the series.  In this book I really started to love Mac more and I saw more why she had a hard time going choosing which one to be with.   I think I liked this book more than the first one because you got to see more of who Kate really is and I love seeing her rebuild her life.  I loved reading about what it is like in the publishing world because I know what it is like for those of us who review books so I love getting a glimpse in to what happens with authors and getting the books published.

Shelf Life New Cover

About The Book

It’s an industry of out-of-control egos, unrealistic expectations, and unfulfilled promises.

This is publishing and it’s Kate’s world, but maybe not for long.

When one of Kate Mitchell’s star authors is carted away in handcuffs, it’s only the beginning of her troubles. As her world crumbles around her, Kate desperately looks for anyone to hold onto but finds that happy endings are truly works of fiction. With the shelf life of her career and her love affair quickly expiring, Kate sets off on a new adventure…

Starting over in California is easy but Kate soon learns that leaving her old life behind isn’t. Nick Lavigne is eager to help her forget but two things still own her heart, the dream of discovering the next great American novel, and MacDermott Ellis.

As Kate tries to rebuild her life she finds a surprising gift that reboots her career in a new and unexpected direction. Suddenly her name becomes synonymous with one of the biggest bestsellers publishing has seen in ages and she’s welcomed back with open arms.

But at the height of her success the ghosts of her past come back to remind her of the world she’d been trying to forget and the man who never let go of her heart.

Behind the book, there’s always more to the story. Welcome to Publishing, the ego has landed.

The Publicist by Christina George

Book Review

The Publicist by Christina George was a great book.  I wasn’t sure when I was started this book if I was going to like it but after the first couple of pages I was hooked and didn’t want to put this book down or the others in the series.  I loved this authors writing and I also loved the plot of this book.  I loved Kate and I really liked Mac until Nick came into the book and then I was in love with Nick.  I was so glad that I had the next book in series waiting for me because I would have hated to wait to read the rest of the books.  If you love romance books I would recommend this book to you.  I will be reviewing the second book tomorrow and the third book on Wednesday so make sure you come back and check them out.

The Publicist New Cover Book 1

About The Book

Behind every book, there’s always more to the story.Can one woman change an age-old institution like publishing? Probably not, but Kate Mitchell sure wants to try. As a publicist with a large, respected New York publishing house, Kate finds herself at the mercy of a broken publishing system, books that don’t always sell (at all) and author egos that are often, well, as big as the island of Manhattan.Enter the star Editor, MacDermott Ellis. Tall, handsome, charismatic, married, and ready to save the day. Kate wants to do the right thing but her hormones seem to be driving her decisions. Then there’s Allan Lavigne, once a revered author, now as forgotten as yesterday’s news; and his nephew Nick, who wants to sweep Kate away from New York for another coast, California.As Kate tries to navigate the landmine of publicity, the over-the-top author expectations, and the careful dance of “I’m sorry, your book isn’t on the bestseller list this week”, she also finds authors who are painfully overlooked by a publisher wanting more sex, more celebrities, and more scandal.

Masterpiece Marriage by Gina Welborn

Book Review

Masterpiece Marriage by Gina Welborn was another great book in this series.  I love these books and I am so glad that I get to review them.  There are some books that I would never buy with my own money but these are one of the few that I would actually buy because I love them so much.  Anyway lets get on to the review of this book.  In the beginning I wasn’t a huge fan of Zenus and I am not sure why but by the end of the book I love him.   I also loved watching Zenus & Mary fall in love and how Zenus finally went and showed her that he loved her.  It was such a sweet love story that I would recommend to anyone who loves romance novels.

Florence Nightingale-Quote Of The Week

Quote Of The Week

This weeks quote is by Florence Nightingale.

Florence Nightingale

I really liked this quote when I saw it because it is so true.  I find myself making excuses from time to time and it is something that I am going to try and stop doing this year.  I know alot of people make excuses instead of just going out and doing what they know they need to do. If we all just stop making and accepting excuses than I think we would all succeed more often.

Milked by Lisa Doyle

milked review button

Milked by Lisa Doyle was a good but different book.  It was different because of the plot and it was different in a great way.  I loved this book because it was something that I never thought about and yet it did make me smile all the time.  It was such a unique storyline that I couldn’t help but enjoy the book.  I read tons of book and I tend to read the same types of books all the time but this book was like a breath of fresh air.  The past month I have been in a reading funk because I was tired of reading the same things.  When I started this book it was just because I had too and after I was a few pages in I feel in love with the story and the authors writing.  I would recommend this book to everyone because it is such a fun book to read!
