MY REVIEW

This book involves the romance between Lindsey Simms and Carden Crenshaw and reminded me of a modern day, Romeo and Juliet, but with an added mystery twist.

Lindsey is a happy-go-lucky, courageous woman who travels from D.C. to take a job 1839 miles away in Thistle Bend, Colorado, population 1519, to be a curator for a new museum in the Wildflower Capital of Colorado.

However, complications arise when she meets her star-crossed lover, Carden Crenshaw, the sexy, most eligible bachelor of Colorado.

Little does she know, there is a long standing feud between Lindsey’s relatives, the Karlssons and the Crenshaws, that she is about to become involved in and expected to solve to prominently display in the new museum.

With Lindsey’s warmheartedness, she takes on the quest with passion. To solve the mystery of the Karlson/Crenshaw feud, Lindsey seeks out stories from the residents of this small town, especially the old Montgomery sisters, Milly and Merri.

Lindsey is able to solve the hundred year old mystery but at what cost to her family, friends, and her relationship with Carden? This book reminded me of a modern day version of Romeo and Juliet with a great added twist of mystery that kept me wanting more.

I give this book four out of four “teddybears”. (See Rating System Page above)

This book is available for pre-order on Amazon for $2.99 and will be available on November 24, 2015.

I was given this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. My review is based upon my opinions alone in the reading of this book.

My review of The Twisted Road to You by Barbara Longley

MY REVIEW

This is story involving retired Marine, Wesley Holt, and Carlie Stewart, a waitress and a single mother to her six-year-old son. Carlie works at Wes’ favorite restaurant where he goes in every morning after working third shift to eat and to see Carlie.

The book takes place in Perfect, Indiana. Wes is suffering from PTSD and a broken heart from his ex-wife. Carlie is haunted by her past, including her psychotic ex-husband, I call “Asshole”.

Carlie does not show up for work one morning and her boss is concerned. Wes immediately goes to Carlie’s house and finds Carlie and her son in trouble. Carlie’s fugitive ex-husband has escaped from prison and will not relent until he has taken their son from Carlie at any cost, including killing Carlie. Thankfully, Wes is able to save Carlie and her son this time from her ex-husband.

This is when the story really begins……Carlie’s ex-husband will do anything to get to Carlie and their son.

Carlie hasn’t had the easiest life in her past and she sells herself short due to her past. She doesn’t see how far she has come in her life. The amazing mother that she is and the courage it took for her to leave her ex-husband. Wes is an honorable man but he is struggling with his past military experiences and betrayal by his ex-wife.

This is an amazing story about how two broken people can come together and help each other heal and learn to love themselves. Also, throughout this story, there is also a lot of community involvement as well that helps Carlie and Wes. It was nice to see the community rally around to help Carlie and Wes and that is the way it should be but often is not anymore.

I give this book 4 out of 4 “waf-ees” (See rating system above)

This book is available now for pre-order on Amazon and will released on October 20, 2015. Get it here: Amazon
