Fangs and Catnip by Julia Talbot – This was a truly wonderful read that starts a new series with a bang. Between the adorable and caring Carter, the broody but silly Fallon, and a host of amazing staff and guests at the Dead and Breakfast, I didn’t want to put this down—while reading it, or after.
The author threaded a couple of different sub-plots throughout the novel, and each getting their own time in the sun, whilst still bringing something important to the overall plot of Carter and Fallon’s relationship. By the end of the book, I really felt like one of the family at this great B&B. It’s such a disappointment that a place like that doesn’t exist.
Never by Tara Lain – I adore the Pennymaker series but was a little cautious about Never, as I wasn’t the biggest Peter Pan fan, but Tara Lain once again sucks you in and doesn’t let you escape until you’ve finished the story. I loved every word and got so very invested in the multitude of characters, both main and secondary. I want to see the next book already!
Another smash from a talented author that leaves you believing in the magic of the world.
Comic Book Romance by Charles Payseur – This was a fun read that played on the superhero comic books that have become all the rage thanks to the Marvel movies. There’s all kinds of nods to comic lovers and enough silliness and fun to satisfy those looking to branch out into a new genre. The plot itself is typical good vs bad, with enough reality and common sense that it doesn’t seem as over-the-top as the main character’s comic book counterpart, nor as over-powered despite having the exact same (Maxim-um) power.
Though short, the author managed to squeeze a lot of laughter and fun into the plot and didn’t leave any loose ends or unanswered questions, which is a skill in itself in a novella. A great book if you’re looking for something a little silly and fun to read.
Homemade from the Heart by Bru Baker – This story was so sweet and really captured my heart. I wanted a physical copy to hold to my chest and squee because it was perfect.
Grant’s sweet nature was wonderful to read, and he took the teasing from his friends really well for choosing to give private lessons on his day off, so I was rooting for Josh to ask him out, and nearly dancing for joy at the climax. The entire story was just perfect, and I thoroughly recommend it with a cup of your favourite hot beverage!
Sanctuary by Ann-Katrin Byrde – I’m always cautious of spin-offs—books, movies or tv series—so when Ann-Katrin Byrde announced this first book in the spin-off of her amazing Mercy Hills novels, I was hesitant but willing to read. She delivers, once again, a fabulous novel with wonderful characters and another interesting look into the world in which Mercy Hills is part of.
The seemingly bland plot of running away to safety is balanced perfectly with Ori and Patton’s lack of knowledge of the outside world. Their slow fumbling and growing confidence is wonderful to see. And, as always, the mpreg of the situation is sweet and co-incidental (if an excellent obstacle for them to overcome) to the overall story; it really is all about the characters and their determination to stay together.
