Book Review: July 2020

Hey all!  I missed last week's book link up due to vacation, but I am back and sharing some of my recent reads today.  

Hideaway by Nora Roberts
.  The granddaughter / daughter of famous actors is kidnapped at their family ranch.  Luckily, she is able to escape, and finds herself in the hands of a kind, neighboring family.  The book tells the story of the aftermath, following her growing up, and making her own way, which leads her back to the family ranch.  The book was a bit predictable, but I didn't mind it one bit.  Nora Roberts is one of my very favorite authors, and this was another good one by her.

Feels Life Falling by Kristy Woodson Harvey.  Out of the books I read, this was my very favorite!  I could not put it down.  A somewhat unlikely pair of women come together during a rough time in their life.  You get a bit of both their stories, and it is both entertaining and heart warming.  I am a hopeless romantic, and one of the love stories in the book I just wanted them to give into it.  Of course, I guess there wouldn't be much of a story if that happened from the get go.  I really loved this book, and highly, highly recommend it!

The Lies That Bind by Emily Giffin.  I haven't always been the biggest Emily Giffin fan, but her latest books have been pretty good!  I always enjoy a whirlwind love story, which this had, but then there was deceit, 9/11, and just a whole heck of a lot going on.  It kept me interested, plus it tied things up nicely at the end which is always a plus from me!   

Reunion in Death by J.D. Robb.  Still making my way through the 'in Death' series.  And I am still liking it!  It amazes me how many books there are, and every one seems so fresh, yet still ties in with each other.

The Somerset Girls by Lori Foster.  This was a nice read.  Maybe a little too cutesy at times, but overall I enjoyed the story.  It's about two sisters, and their journeys to love - both self love and relationship love.  I wish there had been a bit more about Ember, one of the sisters, but again, an overall enjoyable read.

Linking up with Lindsay.

  1. Other than your last book on the list I have read each of these too! I loved Hideaway, Feels Like Falling, and The Lies that Bind (which I just finished yesterday). I love the In Death series... it's hard to believe I've read them all knowing how many are in the series.

    1. Oh my gosh, that is an accomplishment reading all those! I am still chugging along - reading the 15th one now. Which is kind of crazy - seems like a lot but when you consider how many there are it's not!

  2. Feels Like Falling is at my library and I've actually thought about reading it, so now I will! I'm glad you liked it so much!

  3. I've seen several people mention that Feels Like Falling is really good! I have it at the top of my wish list, but our library has a long wait for it.

  4. So I have never read a Kristy Woodson Harvey book, but your review makes me think I should. Hm. Currently reading "Shelter in Place" - a Nora I somehow missed - and also just got the 50th (!!!) In Death book. Wow. Love that series. What boggles my mind is how she keeps coming up with new ways for people to kill each other, and new ways for Eve et al to figure it out. (It's also kind of funny to see how some of the really out-there tech from the beginning of the series now exists, in some form, in our lives... like smartwatches. :>)

    1. I would recommend her books! I absolutely loved this one, and the Peachtree Bluff books were good, too! Oh my gosh - 50th?! I am still waiting on the 16th from the library, haha! It truly is amazing how she has continued the in death series. And just all her books in general. I wish I had that type of imagination and creativity with it came to stories!
