I enjoy reading fiction worlds various authors create. It takes me away from reality which is, often, a dream come true since real life can be quite complicated and demanding.
I prefer crime-romance fiction but have been known to dabble into other areas as well.

- Something in the Water
on June 21, 2012
Christopher Connelly is a New York Times featured blogger and is fascinated with Silver Creek, located on the opposite end of the country in Oregon. In the history of the town, no one has died despite occurrences which would have, normally, killed numerous people.
Christopher is on the prowl and he wants to find answers. In the process, he realizes that nothing is really what it seems and, sometimes, what he thought he wanted most is really the thing he wanted the least.
The story was engaging and the ending had an unexpected twist, yet it fit with the moral of the story - that we have to stay firm in our convictions to be at peace with ourselves, regardless of what the future brings.
I read this story in 45 minutes before going to sleep and would definitely read other titles by this author.
- An Affair to Remember
on June 21, 2012
As a person who enjoys reading and craves to spend more time alone, I entered a world I thoroughly enjoyed when I met up with Monica Townsend. I was able to throw myself into her idealistic lifestyle, living life to the beat of my own drum, until she got kidnapped. Then I was merely along for the ride 'cause I had to find out what would happen next.
Enter Chase Travers, a man who made even my toes curl with his sensitivity and honest emotions. He felt a protective instinct towards Monica from the onset but he didn't plan to draw close to her emotionally; his sole desire was to protect her - but one phone call changed everything, sending his emotions whirling out of control.
There were so many twists and turns. I was turning pages as quickly as I could, wondering what would happen next - totally drawn into the world Norma Budden created with her colorful cast of characters.
Unlike many books where there are two or three main characters who steal the show, the supporting characters of An Affair to Remember were superbly crafted. I haven't read books by many authors who had a full canvas of characters and wrote them in such a way that each one stood out - that I remembered each by name.
I was really drawn into An Affair to Remember and would encourage both men and women to give this book a shot. I know I'll be reading the sequel in the very near future because I'm so caught up in this world that I wished it didn't have to end.
An added bonus: I enjoyed the way An Affair to Remember was presented. I was able to read along comfortably without stumbling over typos and cringing from a poorly formatted book. This book provided a fantastic reading experience!
Come on! Check it out! I'm sure you won't regret it.
- Masquerade at One Thousand Feet (A Gray Ghost Mystery (Short Story))
on July 21, 2012
Kent Holloway has written an intriguing tale and his lead character, Tobias Cooper, certainly had his wits about him and is great at what he does. A "professional" thief he might be called but, even so, he was an engaging character to follow.
I had my suspicions about who stole the mask and, by the end of the story, learned my suspicions were correct - and I wasn't disappointed in the outcome whatsoever.
I would definitely read additional stories by Kent Holloway.
- Needing Nita

This book is classified as erotic and I was a little reluctant to read the title. Even so, the synopsis won me over and I gave in since it didn't cost me anything. I could always delete the title if it was just too much.
I was pleasantly surprised because, even though it includes sexual scenes, they were no more graphic than what I've come across in reading general fiction titles which didn't advertise sexual content as being part of the book.
I enjoyed the writing style of this author and would read her work again in the future, though I would likely skip over the sexual scenes and read the content of the story - but that would be true of any title in this genre.
- A Holiday to Remember
on Sep. 23, 2012
I tried reading the book, even playing around with the font size, but the sentences were too close together for me to read comfortably. I thought it might have been because I was reading on an Android - being used to a Kindle - but that theory fell apart when subsequent titles I checked had the traditional spacing between sentences. Perhaps it could have been the font the book was published in - I really can't say - but I couldn't read past the first three sentences.
- A Chance In Time
on Sep. 23, 2012
A great introduction to this author. I'll definitely be coming back for more. I enjoyed reading about Penelope and Cole and how their relationship budded slowly, considering the pace of the time.
I find myself wondering about the characters even now...
- Maid for the Billionaire
on Sep. 27, 2012
I stumbled across this title and thought it was absolutely terrific. The writing style of Ruth Cardello is admirable and her characters are well-defined, being true to themselves regardless of the various circumstances they face.
The ending left me feeling complete and desiring to read other titles Ruth has written so I know I'll be back for more.

An excellent piece of writing. I would like to read more about these characters and the life they build together.
