Some Favorite Books This Week!

I’ve been having a tough time keeping up with both the reading AND posting here. While I get it all sorted out, I thought I could at least post the reviews here to Amazon, so you can read them there!

By the way, the first book on the top line above is my own book, published in April to help restaurant’s through the pandemic. Know any restaurateurs, restaurant managers, or head chefs? Let them know about the book! It could save their business!

Note: I am listing reviews as I do them each day. Sometimes, Amazon takes days or even a week or more to approve these reviews, so you will see a lag between when I list reviews and when a link is available. The longest I had to wait was 3.5 weeks!

Hope that life becomes a little more sane soon!

My Reviews at Amazon Week of May 3, 2020

Some Favorite Books This Week!

I’ve been having a tough time keeping up with both the reading AND posting here. While I get it all sorted out, I thought I could at least post the reviews here to Amazon, so you can read them there!

By the way, the first book in the lines above is my own book, published in mid-April to help the restaurant industry during the pandemic. If you know any restaurant owners, managers, head chefs, or operators… let them know!

Note: I am listing reviews as I do them each day. Sometimes, Amazon takes days or even a week or more to approve these reviews, so you will see a lag between when I list reviews and when a link is available. The longest I had to wait was 3.5 weeks!

Hope that life becomes a little more sane soon!

Historical Romance

Contemporary Romance

  • Home at Last by Judith Keim
  • Intimate Strangers by Tara Mills (just terrible–a newly engaged woman lusting after a guy… then getting busy with him immediately after the fiance is dragged into the sea by a shark. Ugh.)
  • Love is Like a Box of Chocolates by various authors (I couldn’t find much to like about this anthology… kept moving through the stories, not finding much to enjoy. More like a Whitman’s sampler, not a See’s one!)
  • One Hundred Decisions by Kelly Collins (I love how this author touches on what could be “downer” societal issues in her books… but with such a light, deft hand that it only enhances and deepens the romance.)
  • Defending Love by Kendra Roberts (poorly written)
  • Home to Him by Kendra Roberts

Thrillers

  • Legacy of Lies by Robert Bailey (love a heroine with such moral integrity)

Chick Lit / Women’s Literature

  • If You Must Know by Jamie Beck
  • Sorry I Missed You by Suzy Krause (quirky, funny… about ghosts of several sorts)
  • The Fire Blossom by Susan Lark (the story of strong women beating the odds together as friends in the harsh environment of 1840s New Zealand)

History — Fiction & Nonfiction

Literary Fiction

  • A Man by Keiichiro Hirano (the first time this popular Japanese writer has been translated into English–I wasn’t impressed)

Nonfiction — General

Nonfiction — Self-Help

Some Favorite Books This Week!

I’ve been having a tough time keeping up with both the reading AND posting here. While I get it all sorted out, I thought I could at least post the reviews here to Amazon, so you can read them there!

The book in the first position is my own book, Kitchen Open, published just a few weeks ago, meant to help restaurants during the pandemic. Know any restaurateurs or managers? Let them know about the book!

Note: I am listing reviews as I do them each day. Sometimes, Amazon takes days or even a week or more to approve these reviews, so you will see a lag between when I list reviews and when a link is available. The longest I had to wait was 3.5 weeks!

Hope that life becomes a little more sane soon!

Historical Romance

  • Awoken by Jane Castel (medieval Scotland Isle of Skye; this one is about a nun who is kidnapped by an evil clan chief; very good, actually!)
  • Lords and Secrets by Joyce Alec

Contemporary Romance

Nonfiction – General

Nonfiction – Self-Help

Nonfiction – Cookbooks

Nonfiction – Language

Children’s

Mysteries

Nonfiction and Fiction – History

  • Living Among the Dead by Adena Berstein Astrowsky (a true story of a Holocaust survivor lovingly told by her grandaughter)
  • Her Side of History by Claudia Severin (4 fictionalized tales of women in the authors family–more riveting than you might imagine!)
  • The Lost Queen by Anne Stott (all about Princess Charlotte of Wales, the daughter of the Prince Regent in the early 1800s–if she had survived childbirth, she would have been queen after her father died, not Victoria)
  • How the Old World Ended by Johnathan Scott (should have been an engaging read about the Anglo-Dutch dominance and battle in the New world… but overly wordy and a hard read)
  • Women Spies Books 1-3 by Kit Sergeant (More fictionalized history, all about the female spies during the American Revolution, the American Civil War, and World War I.)
