Save Your Breath by Melinda Leigh- Book Review

I’ve started my month of thrillers with this book. This is the 6th book in the Morgan Dane series by Melinda Leigh. I have thoroughly enjoyed every book in this series and this one did not disappoint. I still love the characters from Morgan, Lance and Sharp to a newer character who is Olivia. It’s easy thriller read that is also hard for me to put down so I was able to read this book within two nights. It had me guessing until the very end. If you haven’t read this series then definitely give it a try. I was able to read this one for free through Kindle Unlimited. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. I already can’t wait for the next book.

Synopsis:

When true-crime writer Olivia Cruz disappears with no signs of foul play, her new boyfriend, Lincoln Sharp, suspects the worst. He knows she didn’t leave willingly and turns to attorney Morgan Dane and PI Lance Kruger to find her before it’s too late.

As they dig through Olivia’s life, they are shocked to discover a connection between her current book research on two cold murder cases and the suicide of one of Morgan’s prospective clients.

As Morgan and Lance investigate, the number of suspects grows, but time is running out to find Olivia alive. When danger comes knocking at their door, Morgan and Lance realize that they may be the killer’s next targets.

Hello October

For the month of September I read romantic comedies but now that it’s October, and my favorite month of the year, I’m only reading thrillers. Thrillers and suspense novels are my favorite. Here are a few thrillers I’ve read and absolutely loved. What are some thrillers you have enjoyed?

My Favorite Half Night Stand by Christina Lauren- Book Review

This was such a fun book and I loved the way it was written. It incorporated text messages send from different characters in the book and gave you a hint as the story is told who was really writing a certain message. I throughly enjoyed all the characters in this book which included a group of friends, 5 guys and a girl who is Millie Morris. She an extremely smart woman who is a professor at UC Santa Barbara. She is funny, witty but also has had her ups and downs in life. When she begins a friendship with a group of guys that she works with she soon realizes that she has stronger feeling than a friendship for one of them and he may have feelings for her as well. Christina Lauren does it again and I was completely hooked from beginning to end with this book. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. It’s my third favorite book was hers right after The Unhoneymooners and Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating.

Synopsis:

Millie Morris has always been one of the guys. A UC Santa Barbara professor, she’s a female-serial-killer expert who’s quick with a deflection joke and terrible at getting personal. And she, just like her four best guy friends and fellow professors, is perma-single.

So when a routine university function turns into a black tie gala, Mille and her circle make a pact that they’ll join an online dating service to find plus-ones for the event. There’s only one hitch: after making the pact, Millie and one of the guys, Reid Campbell, secretly spend the sexiest half-night of their lives together, but mutually decide the friendship would be better off strictly platonic.

But online dating isn’t for the faint of heart. While the guys are inundated with quality matches and potential dates, Millie’s first profile attempt garners nothing but dick pics and creepers. Enter “Catherine”—Millie’s fictional profile persona, in whose make-believe shoes she can be more vulnerable than she’s ever been in person. Soon “Catherine” and Reid strike up a digital pen-pal-ship…but Millie can’t resist temptation in real life, either. Soon, Millie will have to face her worst fear—intimacy—or risk losing her best friend, forever.

Custom Home Christmas Ornaments

While I love reading books and it’s one of my favorite hobbies another hobby of mine is painting. I love watercolor painting but during this time of year a lot of my time is spent painting custom home wooden ornaments. It’s exactly as is sounds. I get sent a front facing picture of someone’s home and I’m able to paint it on an ornament for them. It’s a gift that is cherished for many year and brings a smile to everyones face that gets one. I have given many to my friends and family as well. If you are interested in buying one please check out the link to my Etsy page below. It’s never to early to do a little Christmas shopping.

Matchmaking for Beginners by Maddie Dawson- Book Review

Matchmaking for Beginners was a cute book. It took me a little while to get into the story but thought it was cute none the less. I loved the character Blitz. I found her so refreshing and loved her carefree personality. I honestly think she made the story. Marnie the main character wasn’t my favorite, I felt like the lacked some depth and was continuously indecisive which was quite frustrating at time. Over all the book was cute but not one of my favorites. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️. Thankfully I was able to read it for free through Kindle Unlimited.

Synopsis:

Marnie MacGraw wants an ordinary life—a husband, kids, and a minivan in the suburbs. Now that she’s marrying the man of her dreams, she’s sure this is the life she’ll get. Then Marnie meets Blix Holliday, her fiancé’s irascible matchmaking great-aunt who’s dying, and everything changes—just as Blix told her it would.

When her marriage ends after two miserable weeks, Marnie is understandably shocked. She’s even more astonished to find that she’s inherited Blix’s Brooklyn brownstone along with all of Blix’s unfinished “projects”: the heartbroken, oddball friends and neighbors running from happiness. Marnie doesn’t believe she’s anything special, but Blix somehow knew she was the perfect person to follow in her matchmaker footsteps.

And Blix was also right about some things Marnie must learn the hard way: love is hard to recognize, and the ones who push love away often are the ones who need it most.
