#Review ~~ Flight by Laura Griffin

Flight by Laura Griffin Tori’s 4 Blush Review Griffin takes romance and mystery on a wild ride in Flight. With the reader on the same page as Miranda Rhoads, the former CSI, and Joel Breda, the head detective, you can feel every emotion the murder case brings them. As the homicide case builds, so does Miranda and Breda’s relationship. Miranda brought a mysterious past to the relationship and a strong force to the case. Breda takes no offense to Miranda’s closed-off appearances and brings her to life by the end of the book. The only part of this book that sets...

Release Blitz & Dual Reviews ~~ Hard to Lose by K. Bromberg

] Hard to Lose by K. Bromberg is now live! New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg, brings you a romance about love, forgiveness, and living every day to the fullest. I know finding and signing a military vet to the agency is a long shot–but it’ll be good press just letting him try out. That’s what I tell my family, rather than admit I can’t get the letter he wrote us five years ago out of my head. But what I tell the bartender in his hometown is a lie. I know veterans protect each other. So I pretend...

#Audible Review ~~ We Begin at the End by Chris Whitaker

Rating: We Begin at the End by Chris Whitaker Narrated by George Newbern Louisa’s 4 Blush Review  As I mainly read Romance, a good mystery is something that brings me back to my early years of reading. Chris Whitaker may be the best person to bring me back into the mystery world. This book is hauntingly good. It’s both heartbreaking and uplifting. Duchess Day Radley and her brother Robin have been dealt a horrible hand. A mother who is inattentive and obviously has had a hard life. Duchess’s life, at the age of 13, is a parent to Robin. With her...

#AudibleReview ~~ The Wife Upstairs by Rachel Hawkins

Rating: The Wife Upstairs A Novel by Rachel Hawkins Narrated by Emily Shaffer; Kirby Heyborne; Lauren Fortgang Louisa’s 5 Blush Review What an absolutely fantastic audible. My latest obsession is a thriller and this book hit all the marks for me. I loved the dual narration and I was absolutely mesmerized while listening. The twists and turns were jaw-dropping and awe-inspiring throughout the entire book. I went into this book blind as I often think thrillers need to be a cold read. Jane wasn’t everything we thought she was, nor was Eddie or Bea…and that’s exactly why I loved this book...

Rating: Louisa’s 5 Blush Review This book will make my Best of 2020 books! This book has popped up in my feed a few times and I am so glad I finally jumped in.

Emmie was such a beautiful soul and just wanted love and companionship and family…she thought she would have all of that with Lucas but once he makes the decision to marry Marie, Emmie wants to be happy for Lucas but she’s just so sad and lost. This is an emotionally filled book and I want...

#Review ~~ How to Fail at Flirting by Denise Williams

Rating: How to Fail at Flirting Denise Williams Louisa’s 4 Blush Review This review will be short and sweet – just exactly how I felt when reading! I didn’t want this book to end. I read it one weekend and yes, my to-do list for the weekend was not complete thanks to this book! This book was funny, sweet, sexy and these characters were well written and complimented each other so well. I could see this as a Lifetime Movie someday. They have both been burned in the past and are typically so cautious but once they meet the sparks...

#DualFiveBlushReviews ~~ The Wrong Family by Tarryn Fisher

Rating: The Wrong Family Tarryn Fisher Sandy’s 5 Blush Review Winnie Crouch is a piece of work.  She is controlling of her image, of where she lives, and of how she lives. Even of her husband, Nigel, and their son, Samuel. The picture-perfect family she carefully curated, is a facade. Yet she clings to it with the desperation of a woman that knows it’s slipping away. Juno was once a therapist who had many of the trappings society associates with success.  A flourishing practice, a nice home, and a family. Now she is old, sick, and alone.  Living out her last days trying...

#AudibleReview ~~ Tequila Rose (Tequila Rose #1) by  Willow Winters

Rating:   Tequila Rose (Tequila Rose #1) by Willow Winters Sebastian York (Narrator) Lidia Dornet (Narrator) Louisa’s 4 Blush Review This is my first Willow Winters book and it was the audible version. I have had her on my radar for a while and I have been wanting to read/listen to one of her books for a while now! So glad to have started off with a great story. This small town, the second chance story had me from the beginning. From their drunken meeting to running into each other 4 years later I wanted it all. Brody & Magnolia had one...

#Review #EmotionalRead ~~ Eastern Lights by Brittainy C. Cherry

Rating: Eastern Lights (Compass #2) by Brittainy C. Cherry LOUISA’S 4.5 BLUSH REVIEW Brittainy Cherry has the ability to write just the most emotional and fulfilling books.  I have been a fan forever and I always get caught up in reading her books. This second chance romance has a great meet/cute.  These two decide to spend the night together – “trying to fall in love”.  It’s Halloween night and they spend the night taking each other to some of their favorite places.  They aren’t in the right place to begin anything new so they just take the one night to...
