Today is my dad’s birthday!!! In celebration, I decided to review a book about an awesome dad (because my dad is AWESOME. Ask anyone). Caveat: that’s pretty much where the similarities end between this character and my dad.
Amazon Kindle’s “Recommended for You” list got me again, guys! I’m telling you, I need to stop looking at that list or I’m going to have to get another part time job to afford my book addiction (since employers don’t hire people they have to pay benefits to anymore…) This time, it recommendedThe Decoy Bride by Lizzie Shane and I happened to be looking desperately for some kind of light-hearted hijinx to help me ride the tide of emotions from the last book I read. Of course this one caught my attention!
It’s SUMMERTIME and I haven’t had an opportunity to get out and enjoy the weather as of yet (I’ve been stuck at work for what feels like forever x_x). So, I felt the need to find a book that would satisfy my summer craving. Love on a Summer Night even has “summer” in the title! And it’s a Romance!!! What could be better?
I have reviewed a couple of Linda Howard books since this blog started, but I recently came across Mackenzie’s Legacy in a trip to the bookstore and I got really excited. I had already read three of the Mackenzie Family novels and this copy has two that I hadn’t read yet: Mackenzie’s Mountain and Mackenzie’s Mission. I’m only going to review Mackenzie’s Mountain today, because I have a lot of things to say about it, but I have now read all of the books in the Mackenzie Family series and I’ll probably talk a bit about them toward the end of this review, as well.
Last time I browsed through potential reads in the Kindle store, I received notification of a new program called Amazon First Reads. Basically, they give you a discount on new release books in order to get people interested in them. The Overdue Life of Amy Byler by Kelly Harms was on the list and it sounded intriguing, so I bought it.
