More Unusual Historicals & Two First Looks
I know....whine, whine, whine. Please pass the cheese.
In the meantime, I've had several posts go live over at Heroes & Heartbreakers that I have failed to blog about. First up is a round-up of unusual historicals for October. For the record, six of the featured titles are in my TBR. I might have a problem, ahem.
I also did two First Looks: Tempted by a Cowboy by Sarah M. Anderson and Snow Angel Cove by RaeAnne Thayne.
The Anderson is the second book in a series featuring an American brewing dynasty and it's good folks. As in, really, really good. It didn't pass my "must reread someday" test so not an A, but it's a high B+. Oh, and since I read this before reading the first book in the series? I can attest that it stands alone just peachy.
The Thayne is a small town contemporary Christmas story that starts a new series, but is loosely connected to a previous series. If the thought of reading yet another small town contemporary makes you want to drive nails up your arms - well, this one probably isn't going to change your mind. But if you can't get enough of small towns? If you're looking for a warm and fuzzy, cozy Christmas read? This one may be worth checking out. It was the very definition of an "OK" read for me. Didn't love it, didn't hate it, but would easily recommend it to readers who lean that way.
