I am thrilled to help share the cover of the first book in Annie Rains’ new series – Somerset Lake! The first book, The Summer Cottage, debuts on May 25th. Here’s a brief synopsis from Goodreads ahead of the official summary: One woman must keep her past — and her heart — hidden, but the man next door is just as determined to bring it to light in the first book in a new small-town series from USA Today bestselling author Annie Rains. It’s no secret that I adored her first Forever series, Sweetwater Springs, so I can’t wait to explore a new town just a few hours away! Without further ado, here is the cover: SO CUTE. I always want more dogs in books now and I specifically can’t wait for this pup because I understand a little bit of the context/backstory, perhaps, from Reunited on Dragonfly Lane.

I think Jenny Holiday was my author of the year in 2020. I read three of her books, two of which are in this Matchmaker Bay trilogy, and all of them were wonderful. 4.5-5 stars across the board. Seriously, this series is perfect. I knew I had to start 2021 with a winner and this finale did not disappoint. I’m glad I still have another series to read by Holiday but I’ll miss this setting! Matchmaker Bay (actually called Moonflower Bay) is an adorable Canadian beach town… just the kind of small town romance-filled setting I love to read about. This book follows Maya and Law (Ben). I loved them both and definitely saw this romance coming from a mile away. Let me tell you, it did not disappoint. Holiday writes low-drama romances without a stupid miscommunication or something to ruin everything, which I SO appreciate. The two were basically enemies, always bickering, even if one of them didn’t know why they were fighting so much in the first place. This turned into a months-long friendship and then later romance. I’m really sad to leave this location behind! It’s very charming and that’s a major reason I’m not ready to go, but there are at least 3 new characters that totally could get their own books! Two women move to town in this installment and Maya’s brother also returns home. I would love to learn more about any combination of these people in more books 😉 Overall, this was yet […]
Books Written Before I Was Born: Read & Want to Read Top Ten Tuesdays were started by The Broke and the Bookish and are now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, where we make lists of our top ten books (or something else!) based on that week’s prompt. The topics are provided ahead of time and can be found here. Book links bring you to Goodreads or my review. I was born in September 1991, so all of these books were published sometime before then… sometimes even just a few months before! I’ve read some classics during high school, of course, but am trying to include more recent reads here. There are a few books I’ve already read and a handful that I hope to read. Recent Reads I read MUDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS a few years ago because I was hoping to watch the movie (which I mostly enjoyed). I’ve been adding some Agatha Christie books to my TBR as of late and this was one of the two I’ve read in general (I read AND THEN THERE WERE NONE in high school). I also read THE FACE ON THE MILK CARTON in maybe middle school? and randomly decided to reread it a few years ago. I’ve been meaning to continue the series but haven’t yet. When I was introduced to Serial Reader back around 2017, I read TWELFTH NIGHT and ALICE’S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND to cross a few classics off my TBR. The app breaks a bunch of books into […]
