My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Thanks St. Martin’s Press and netgalley for this ARC.

Cherie Burns’s excitement and awe of the starfish brooch will infect the most jaded jewelry lover/expert/reader. I loved feeling like I was journeying with her around the world. This is more than just a biography of the creators and owners of the starfish- its a story of desire and greed that is still ongoing today.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Thanks Random House Publishing Group – Ballantine and netgaley for this ARC.

Flavia and her family are in mourning for her father so they take a river ride and vacation together. Of course, it does’t end there. This is one of my favorite mystery series because it’s always fun, well written, and full of promise and excitement.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Thanks St. Martin’s Press and netgalley for this ARC.

Becca and Callum are ready to fight to the death if they could just stop being attracted to each other. Suzanne Enoch is the only one that could make this HEA work. I loved the dynamics between Callum, Becca, and everyone trying to keep them apart. Hands down one of the best of this year so far.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Thanks SOURCEBOOKS Landmark and netgalley for this ARC.

Randall Silvis know how to tread the line between suspense and holding back the plot. Loved the relationship between DeMarco and Jayme- real, compassionate, and full of unconditional love. This mystery reads like a t.v. drama unfolding before your eyes.
