Book two in the series Ms. Right, titled “No Rings Attached,  Rachel Lacey brings two of Rosie’s closet friends, Lia Harris, her manager, and Grace Poston her childhood “imaginary friend”. A wedding in London, brings together Lia and Grace as couple, a past history takes them on a road trip of discovery, and sparks of attraction gives them a chance to explore each other, albeit “No Rings Attached”!!

Two opposites in every way, two lovely women who deserve the best of life, and two wonderful women trying to navigate the journey of a relationship, with insecurities and fears. Lovely Lia the extrovert, and graceful Grace, the introvert, have to wade through a sea of emotions, separation, truths and pain before they come to terms with the fact that they do belong with each other.

Now, this book sure brought out Rachel Lacey’s prowess of writing. The angst that Grace feels for causing pain, and the maturity of Lia for letting go of her love to heal, is felt in every word that Rachel penned in this story. She did a fabulous job of creating two beautiful characters, was eloquent in her description of the psyche of two women in a relationship, ups and downs, and the final culmination of their future. A great read and I totally loved it!

“No Rings Attached” releases April 12, 2022.

Don’t recall reading Caitlin Crews before, and seems that I am late to reading her Kittredge series, and ended up reading the last in this series, and I have to say am pleasantly surprised that I liked the story as well as the author, Caitlin Crews.

Spending “Summer Nights With A Cowboy”, Zack Kittredge, who also happens to be the Sheriff of Cold River, was definitely not in the traveling nurse Janie Atwood‘s plan. But then fate always throws in a lasso of a twist, and from trying to discover her roots, Janie ends up falling in love with Zack. Janie was never a part of his plan, but Zack will definitely protect his town and his spunky neighbor Damaris, from any harm. All it takes is some charm lessons, friendly conversations, and honesty for Janie and Zac to give their spark of attraction a chance to fire a future with each other.

I liked that Caitlin Crews gives more page time to Janie a chance to discover her past and come to terms with it, at the same time resolving family dynamics among the Kittredges. A heartwarming read.

A romantic suspense/thriller from Rebecca Zanetti cannot be missed!!!

Start to a new series, “You Can Run” introduces Laurel Snow as the main protagonist in this series, and I just fell in love with her character. Strong yet vulnerable, super smart and intelligent, yet she’s her mother’s daughter, caring, kind and loving, and she makes hunting  killers her profession, and keeping innocent people safe as her passion. 

And of course, Laurel Snow needs some muscle back up and support hunting the evil, and a bit of romance maybe, and so Rebecca drops Huck Rivers into her life. Aloof, broody, betrayed and with a big chip on his shoulder, he becomes Laurel’s shadow and protector. 

Rebecca drops in a couple of crazy twists into this starter, and thus begins a truly and intense suspense read, and a great start to a brand new series. The narration is great, an intense and twisted plot, and add in Laurel Snow’s family, and just her quirky take on life, you will not be able to put this book down.

A brand new author for my read, Erin Parisien, (courtesy Book Sirens) has been a reasonably author to read, “His Saving Grace”

Medically discharged, cowboy Mason Callahan returns to his home, Triple C Ranch, to figure out his future and as well as reconnect with his family. And unearth the new secrets of the new hire Grace, his mother’s assistant. 

Grace is flying under the radar, biding her time to make sure that she can build as many walls as possible to keep the dangers of her past getting to her. Working at Triple C Ranch gives her some security and time to plan her next move, but that plan never included the return of the prodigal Callahan son.

Erin Parisien, writes a good plot and narrates a reasonable story line and “His Saving Grace” is a decent read. But her characters do need more development or I should say a chemistry that would bleed out of her writing. They do lack that aura of intensity between them that would have made this book memorable. 

Received an ARC from Book Sirens for an honest review.

A first time read of a new author, Sundar Nathan, and Hindu mythology as the genre, can be interesting. Growing up on innumerable mythological stories, and our greatest epics to date, Ramayana and Mahabharata, “Prince Of Naraka” can be an enthralling read to people who find this genre absorbing and would like to know more of Hindu mythology.

As much as I loved coming across the names of various Gods and mythological creatures that I grew up reading in my childhood, the first book in the series is pretty lengthy for me. Sundar Nathan has grandiose imagination and his fascination for fantasy is an admirable trait as a writer,  and as a first time author has done an adequate narration, but I definitely would have preferred a reasonable length for his first introductory book in the series, for the readers to get used to the characters and the plot line of the story.

For a first time author, it is a decent start. It takes courage and perseverance to become an author and for that he gets my accolades.

For diverse and interested readers, a word of caution that this is a continuing plot line to be followed in future books in the series, and this story does have a lot of Indian dialect and vocabulary.
