I’ve been reading a ton lately as I’ve been recovering from getting my wisdom teeth out. Luckily, it’s been a pretty smooth recovery, but I’m not passing up a chance to rest and catch up on my to-read pile!
I finally got to Once Upon a Montana Christmas by debut author Alanna Lucas. This is a holiday novella set in late nineteenth century Montana. I loved the writing and the love story between the strong, resolute heroine and the secretly sensitive hero. Throw a baby and some Christmas cookies in there, and you have a very sweet debut. I know we’ll be seeing a lot more from Alanna Lucas.
I just caught up on the Children of Merlin series by Susan Squires by reading Waiting for Magic. This book came out in October, but I just realized it was out. Guess I need to get on Susan Squires’s mailing list! This is the fourth entry in the series and my favorite so far. I loved Devin and Keelan’s story, and thought Squires pulled it off beautifully.
Whiskey Beach is one of Nora Roberts’s latest, and I really enjoyed the story between Abra and Eli as they fell in love against the backdrop of the rocky Massachusetts coastline and the repercussions of Eli’s wife’s unsolved murder.
