Tangling with the London Tycoon by Suzi Jennings
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Rosco is a London millionaire that protects his family and reputation. I received a copy of Tangling with the London Tycoon from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Rosco is in the middle of preparing everything for one of his sisters' wedding when the photographer is unable to make it. He needs a photographer ready to go in less than two days and that photographer has to be discreet and professional because one of the bridesmaids is famous and the paparazzi also love to stalk Rosco's family. Kitty wants the job and she is needs this job to get her in the door so that she can sell a photography project she is planning to Rosco's media empire. Kitty is publicity adverse and she has good reason. She comes from a very untraditional family and her mother was someone that drew the paparazzi before her untimely death.

Rosco and Kitty do not hit it off so well in the beginning. He d…

Theodora by Christina McKnight
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Theodora is a fun, sweet and romatic historical romance which I received a free copy of from Barclay and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Lady Theodora is a cunning, smart and independent girl who went to boarding school with her three roommates and friends. Her story is a first in the Lady Archer's Creed series. Each of them bumps against the norms and treatment of women during their time where it is against the "norm" for women to study anything scholarly. Even most women think that a girl should be trained in the "womanly" arts like needlepoint and music. It is okay to practice archery as long as it is in private surroundings. A woman should never be seen playing at things that are for men in public. This goes against the grain for Theodora and her friends because they can think of no other way to raise the money to help their alma mater that taught them so many of the things they have come to…

The Riverman by Alex Gray
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Riverman was a very detailed mystery/thriller. I received a copy in exchange for an honest review from the publisher (Frontlist/Harper Collins) via Edelweiss. As soon as I read the description I knew it would be a book that I enjoy spending time reading. I was worried that I did not know it was the fourth book in a series but, I jumped right in and still found the characters engaging. A reader cannot help but love a good mystery that starts with a body in the first pages. You are hooked because now you must find out who the person was and why did they end up in the river Clyde in Glasgow. It sounds rough going in the parts where more than one body was dropped. The Clyde was described and felt like another character in the book and was intricately woven into the story of the man whose job it was to rescue those that he could from the Clyde, or retrieve their bodies. A job that seemed to be passed down through his family.

Lost Girls by Merrie Destefano
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Just wow! I was really excited about this book after reading the blurb. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review from Entangled Publishing. I started the first chapter and was really excited. As I moved forward I started to get worried that this plot was not for me at all. It is a story where several girls, including Rachel, have disappeared with one exception Rachel was found alive. Several of the girls have not been seen again. To make matters worse Rachel cannot remember the last year of her life. I always have a hard time reading anything where someone, especially children are the targets of criminals. There is way too much of that in real life. Most teens out there would disagree with me when I refer to them as children, however, I refer to the young ladies in this book as children because adults are still responsible for them and their behavior. I am more shocked than anyone that I could not put this book down…
