Every Girl Gets Confused Review

How can she choose between the love she thought she lost and the love she stumbled upon in the aftermath?

Katie Fisher and Brady James may be a match made in heaven, but that doesn't seem to guarantee them a happily ever after accompanied by angelic choirs. In fact, the sounds being heard at the bridal shop where she works are on the contentious side lately, as a bride- and groom-to-be try to mediate the growing rivalry between their basketball-obsessed families in the middle of play-off season. On top of that, Katie's parents are nagging her to get out of Dallas and come home to tiny Fairfield where her former boyfriend Casey is waiting for her, ready to rekindle their relationship. Oy vey! What's a girl to do? And will she ever be able to wear that gorgeous wedding dress she won?

Every Girl Gets Confused by Janice Thompson is a wonderful second book in the Brides with Style series. As with everyone of her books that I have read I laughed out loud at characters antics. I love Katie as a narrator and enjoyed every moment I spent in her world. But with every Janice Thompson book you get those lovely spotlight stealing supporting characters that will always make you laugh. If you loved Every Bride Needs a Groom then you won't want to miss this installment to the series. And if you have yet picked up the first book then what are you waiting for?! Do it now!

Vendetta Review

No one needs to push Nikki Boyd to excel on the Tennessee Missing Persons Task Force. The case of her own missing sister, still unsolved after ten years, is the driving force in her work. When a Polaroid photo of a missing girl shows up at a crime scene, Nikki quickly recognizes similarities to the past. The closer she gets to the abductor, the more she feels this case has become personal, and she is not the hunter . . . but the hunted.

Vendetta by Lisa Harris is the first book in the series the Nikki Boyd Files and boy did it start off good! It hits the ground running and continues with a great pace till the very end. I loved this book because while it did have romance it didn't over shadow the suspense and mystery of the story. Nikki is an engaging character that I can't wait to read more about in the future books in this series. If your looking for a page turner then I suggest you pick this book up!

Fire and Ice Review

Saddle Up for a Wildly Fun Ride 
in Mary Connealy's Latest

Bailey Wilde is one of the best new ranchers in the West. She's been living disguised as a man for a while, but when Gage Coulter comes to drive her off her homestead, he quickly realizes he's dealing with a woman--a very tough, very intriguing woman at that.

Gage is an honest man, but he didn't make his fortune being weak. He won't break the law, but he'll push as hard as he can within it. Five thousand acres of his best range land is lost to him because Bailey's homestead is located right across the only suitable entrance to a canyon full of lush grass. Gage has to regain access to his land--and he's got to go through Bailey to do it.

Spending a winter alone has a way of making a person crave some human contact. In a moment of weakness, Bailey agrees to a wild plan Gage concocts. Can these two independent, life-toughened homesteaders loosen up enough to earn each other's respect--and maybe find love in 
the process?

Fire and Ice by Mary Connealy is the last book in the Wild at Heart series and features oldest sister Bailey Wilde. Overall I really loved this book, it has everything I can always count on in a book by Mary Connealy. Romance, humor, adventure, intrigue. What more could you ask for?! Bailey and Gage make for a fun couple who will definitely keep each other on their toes! I loved getting to know more about both of these characters history. Fire and Ice is the perfect book to end this series. (Though I wouldn't mind one bit if there were more!) 

5 out of 5. An adventurous Afternoon Snack!
