It’s the end of February, and chances are you’ve had to watch at least one “romantic” movie that made you want to gag and roll your eyes. Don’t you wish that a movie could have romance without being super sappy? Maybe have a sword fight or two in there? Perhaps a harrowing battle with Rodents Of Unusual Size?
Happy Valentine’s Week! Whether you love or hate the hallmark holiday, a satire called The Loved One is sure to be perfect to set the mood, right?
It’s pretty obvious where we heard about Floreat Queenie since we posted a review of Queenie’s Teapot last month. This is the second book in The Queenie Chronicles by Carolyn Steele.
We thought this would be the perfect time to review Floreat Queenie because it starts off right at Christmas. The chaos of the past year is seemingly subsiding, when Queenie accidentally manufactures some political drama by swearing during her televised Christmas announcement. This is then used by some shady characters with political motives to mobilize religious zealots into protesting the government.
I was recommended Queenie’s Teapot by my friend Deana, whose mother-in-law happens to be the author. She told me, “You will love this book so much!” and she was right. I bought Bethany a copy for Christmas and have also gifted a copy to my mom, who I knew would love it as well.
