Where the Blame Lies by Mia Sheridan #DualReview

STEPHANIE’S 4.5 BLUSH REVIEW ‘Casus belli.’ Where the blame lies. Mia Sheridan is flexing her writing muscles into the romantic suspense genre and coming out strong! Mia   self-proclaims that “Her passion is weaving true love stories about people destined to be together.” Where the Blame Lies is certainly different than any of her other books. The mood of the story is on the darker side and may contain triggers for some. The story is layered and detailed, told in the past and the present. “Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise…” Josie Stratton was kidnapped by a...

#RomCom~~Waiting For Tom Hanks by Kerry Winfrey

Rating: A rom-com-obsessed romantic waiting for her perfect leading man learns that life doesn’t always go according to a script in this delightfully charming and funny novel. Annie Cassidy dreams of being the next Nora Ephron. She spends her days writing screenplays, rewatching Sleepless in Seattle, and waiting for her movie-perfect meet-cute. If she could just find her own Tom Hanks—a man who’s sweet, sensitive, and possibly owns a houseboat—her problems would disappear and her life would be perfect. But Tom Hanks is nowhere in sight. When a movie starts filming in her neighborhood and Annie gets a job on set,...

#WomensFiction!! Mrs. Everything by Jennifer Weiner

Rating: Christina’s 4.5 Blush Review Does this book deserve a coveted place in your stylish beach bag this year? Absolutely. Does it read like a “beach read?” Nope. It’s so much more than that. Jennifer Weiner has truly outdone herself in this sweeping, prolific novel of two sisters coming of age and finding themselves during one of the most tumultuous and evolving times in American history. Even though the story is set decades in the past, it’s so unbelievably timely and relevant. Weaving together plot lines centered on sisterhood, family, ethnicity and culture, tradition, sexuality, trauma, love and healing, Mrs....

Rating: A Five-Minute Life, an all-new standalone new adult romance by International bestselling author Emma Scott is Live!   Christina’s 5 Blush Up All Night Review This book is absolutely beautiful. From the tragic and heartbreaking first half, A Five Minute Life drew me in and held me captive until the very last word.

I spent...
