Review for Tutus and Cowboy Boots Part One by Casey Peeler

Wow, wow, wow! Can’t say enough about how much I love these sweet southern romances from Casey Peeler!
In this novel Cadence has her world turned upside down when her father cheats on her mother with his secretary and her and her mother have to move from New York City to her mother’s home town of Delight, North Carolina. Not only is Cadence a typical “city girl” but she is an aspiring ballerina who has been dancing since she was a little girl with one of New York’s most prestigious dance studios and plans on becoming a professional dancer. She is devastated that not only does she have to leave her friends and everything she knows but she feels that this will be devastating to her future as a dancer.
Cadence and her mom move in with Cadence’s grandmother in Delight and Cadence quickly learns that life will never be the same. Ms. Mae, Cadence’s grandmother, teaches Cadence that respect is something that is expected of her and she will need to work to earn the privileges that Cadence thinks she is entitled to.
Cadence slowly begins to open up to her new life in Delight and learns that hard work really can pay off. She also starts learning about the true meaning of friendship and family and possibly a shot at love. She will soon have to decide where her true home is.  

I give this book 5 stars!

Review for The Pawn by Steven James

In this novel Special Agent Patrick Bowers is called to North Carolina to help track down a serial killer. Patrick is a geographical profiler who specializes in tracking down serial killers based on the location of their crimes. Patrick is still grieving over his wife’s death that occurred less than a year ago and it trying to adjust to being a parent to her 17 year old daughter. Trying to keep his head in the game is difficult to begin with but it is proving more difficult with this case since the killer always seems to be one step ahead of Patrick. He soon discovers that there could be more than one killer at work in this case when things don’t match up like they should. What follows is a story of not only two intelligent criminals but a government cover up decades in the making and a story of learning to love again.
Patrick must get his head in the game long enough to catch not one but two killers but will he be able to do that and find a way to find closure over his wife’s death and build a family with his step daughter.
This story is a little hard to follow at times as the writer seems to jump from one story to another but it does come together nicely in the end.

I give this book 3 stars.

Review for Chasing Memories by Tia Silverthorne Bach

In this novel, Reagan seems to have it all. She is a cheerleader who is dating the star quarterback and getting ready to start her senior year of high school with her best friends. Her father decides to take the family to Yellowstone for a last vacation before school starts. The vacation is going well until one night something goes terribly wrong. Regan is sleeping in a tent with her younger brother and her parents are sleeping in the tent beside them when Regan wakes up to a terrible scream. She goes looking for her brother but can’t find him then everything goes black. She wakes up in a hospital bed where her parents tell her she and her brother were most likely attacked by a bear and her brother has been killed and the body never found.
As the family grieves and tries to move on Regan begins to have flashbacks of the night that her brother disappeared and also is hearing voices. Regan’s grandmother, who has come to stay with the family to help them grieve, has her own way of trying to protect Regan but Regan’s mother doesn’t agree with her mother’s Wiccan ways. Regan isn’t sure who to believe but she knows that no one is telling her the truth about that night.
Regan has to make a decision of how far she is willing to go to learn the truth about her brother’s death even if it means losing everything she knows.
This is the first book in the Tala Prophesies by Tia Silverthorne Bach and I will definitely be reading the next installment.  The book started off a little slow for me but I connected with Regan and became frustrated for her as she was searching for answers and wasn’t able to get them. I found myself rooting for her and can’t wait to see what happens in the next installment of this series.

I give this book 4 stars.

Oh my. I just can’t say enough about how much I loved this book. I couldn’t put it down. I love small town romance and found myself laughing out loud then crying then celebrating with the characters in this book.

So much has changed in the six years that Jaden has been away and he hopes he can convince her to give him another chance.
The last time Jaden saw Cole was when he left her for a previous girlfriend who showed up on his door pregnant with his child. Jaden left town to follow her dreams of travel and a career and knows that Cole got married but just can’t seem to get him out of her mind or her heart. She comes back to River Bend to visit Mia, Cole’s little sister and her best friend, because she fears that Mia is going through something she just isn’t telling Jaden about. Jaden has no idea that Cole is now going through a divorce and a custody battle for his son or that he still has feelings for her.
During her visit Jaden is determined to stay away from Cole, even after finding out he is now single, because she doesn’t want to risk leaving heartbroken again. Cole won’t give up that easily. The two have an attraction that can’t be denied but will Jaden give him a second chance? Will Cole’s divorce and custody battle get in the way again of a chance at the future he’s always wanted with Jaden? Find out in this tear jerking romance from Niecey Roy.
Just a warning; once you pick up this book doesn’t make any other plans until you are finished reading because you won’t want to put it down!
