Review Catch Up

These are going to be short reviews but that doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy these books. I’ve just been very busy. 

http://www.amazon.com/Mrs-Grant-Madame-Jennifer-Chiaverini-ebook/dp/B00SA4ZU94/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1427855209&sr=1-1&keywords=mrs.+grant+and+madame+jule

Mrs. Grant and Madame Juke by Jennifer Chiaverini was a masterfully written story. Definitely five out of five stars. 

First of all, I just loved this book. I thoroughly enjoyed Mrs. Lincoln’s Dressmaker and Mrs. Lincoln’s Rival, but Mrs. Grant and Madame Jule was even better. I fell in love with the characters. I like to immerse myself in the history and the time period and the author made that very easy to do. Grant is not a President I know much about. He was brought to life within the pages of this book. 

I highly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys historical fiction, particularly Civil War era fiction. I can’t wait for the next book by Chiaverini.

Their Second Chance by Milly Taiden was a typical romance novel with erotica thrown into the mix. I prefer not to be given every detail in sex scenes. My imagination works just fine. I gave this four stars but it may be that I don’t read books like this often. 

Forever Sheltered by Deanna Roy was another typical romance, but I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was different even though I can’t quite put my finger on why. There was still probably more description in the sex scenes than I need. I liked that the story was told by Dr. Darion Marks and also by Tina, the art therapist. Using both points of view was used well in this story. This book got a five out of five stars. 

http://www.amazon.com/Stranger-Harlan-Coben-ebook/dp/B00NMPN46W/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1427856525&sr=1-1&keywords=The+Stranger

I gave The Stranger five out of five stars. The book started a bit slowly at first, but once it wrapped around my mind and pulled me in, it seemed to alternately move too quickly and too slowly. I had trouble putting this book down. The twists and turns are exactly what I’ve come to expect from Coben. And I wasn’t disappointed. I lost myself in reading this book. I wanted to know what was going to happen, but then when the author revealed the next piece of the puzzle, I wished the book would slow down.
