The Wives Review

The WivesThe Wives by Tarryn Fisher
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Thursday loves her husband Seth and tries not to let it bother her that he has two other wives. She doesn't know anything about the other two wives other than what day of the week they get with Seth. All that changes when she finds a piece of paper in his clothes. Now she is determined to find out about the other wives. She is determined to find out just what kind of person Seth is.

I should give a warning never start a book by this author late at night because you will be up all night reading. She is an amazing writer who hooks you right in.

I really enjoyed this book. It was dark with many twist. I felt so bad for Thursday wondering just how much she would take. I loved when she started standing up for herself and willing to hunt for the truth. The truth isn't always what you want to find I will say. Seth I didn't care for at any point in the book. He just makes my skin crawl all the way to the end. Pick this book up if you want a book that keeps your interest all the way to the end and leaves you gasping at the end. Highly recommend.

Thank you to Eldelweiss for a copy.

The Perfect Dress Review

The Perfect DressThe Perfect Dress by Carolyn Brown
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Mitzi along with her two friends Paula and Jody run a dress shop for plus size women. It's their dream and they are trying to grow their business. Along the way they are trying to get their personal lives in order. When Graham moves back to town Mitzi hopes he looks beyond her plus size to her heart underneath.

I loved all of these characters so much. They are all so strong and protective of each other. It's the friendship you want for yourself. Mitzi is a hard worker and very sweet but she lacks self confidence. Graham is a nice guy who has someone from his past who doesn't want to let go. Both have to step back and see if they are right for each other. They are a great match when they let down their walls.

I have to say Fanny Lou stole the show for me. She reminds me of my grandmother so much and I love her sayings. I'd recommend anyone pick up this wonderful book for her alone. However it's so much more. Love, laughter, betrayal and new beginnings all in one fantastic book I didn't want to end. I look forward to getting more books by this author.

The Beholder Review

The BeholderThe Beholder by Anna Bright
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I received a copy from Edelweiss and HarperTeen for review.

Selah has her life planned out until she is turned down. Now thanks to her stepmother she must take a journey to find a man to marry. She doesn't want to leave home and her father who is in poor health but knows she has to do what is best for her country.

I have to say to me Selah's Stepmother reminds me of an evil queen. You can tell she is evil but you don't quite get to see just how much yet. Selah is is a young girl and it shows. She falls in love easy and throws little fits. She has a lot of growing up to do. Most of the book I have to say I didn't care for her it's only at the end do I start to see the person she will become start showing. She meets two boys so far into her journey. The first one to me she is just to young for. I doubt think they would be a good match. I was rooting for Torden. I liked them together and think they would be happy together.

The book moves at an good pace and really takes off at the end for me. You get to see different family lives and how their countries are run. I love how Selah becomes becomes a stronger person and the end. I think the second book is going together get her be so amazing. Lots more mystery and action is told at the end. I look forward to the next book.

Bonus this cover is simply amazing!
