Caroline: I just finished reading Sidecar Crush by Claire Kingsley. She and Lucy Score are collaborating on a new series called Bootleg Springs set in rural West Virginia. The first book by Lucy Score, Whiskey Chaser, and the second (Sidecar Crush) are rom-com at it’s best. Supposed to be a six book series with each other writing alternate books. Fantastic so far!!!

Tracy: I just finished reading Perfectly Adequate by Jewel E. Ann and I LOVED it. Would love to read stories similar to it.
Mona: I also loved Perfectly Adequate by Jewel E Ann. It was so funny and brought tears, too. The H is a doctor and the h is a patient transporter that is on the Autism Spectrum.
Mary Ann: Maryse I just finished reading Perfectly Adequate by Jewel E Ann and OMG I LOVE IT!!! I was expecting myself to laugh because of the emu on the cover. But I wasn’t expecting myself to cry. The hero is just a very very good guy. The heroine is simply superhero Dorfee!!!

- When the Stars Fall by Emery Rose <— MICHELLE E. 4.5 STAR LOVED THIS ONE!
Michelle E: My new book recommendation is when the stars fall by Emery Rose. Spans from the time they meet at 9 years old through their 30’s. So much emotion. It has a bit of everything… loss, pregnancy, Military, PTSD, Redemption and finding your way back. Soo good, no spoilers here 4.5 stars
- 7th Circle (Hades Book 1) by Tate James <— LIVE!! REVERSE HAREM ALERT! “...7th Circle is the first of a new series set in Shadow Grove.

- Good Girl, Bad Blood: The Sequel to A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson <— TASHA J ENJOYED THIS ONE!!
Tasha J: I finished my 1st book of the year! It was Good Girl, Bad Blood and I loved it. I’m looking forward to reading more books in the series. She, Pip (the mc) reminds me a little bit of Veronica Mars. Not bc she works for a private detective, but she has that natural instinct for solving crimes and she’s in high school.
This one was different from the last as she’s started a podcast, covering the crime she cracked in the last novel and the court case that followed. And then, her friend’s brother disappeared and she’s pulled in to investigate. It was a little heavier than the last one, I think.
- Awakened by M.L. Gabrielle <— RECENT RELEASE!! COLLEGE STUDENT CAN’T RISK EXPOSING HER SECRET… “...After enduring an entire semester of being tormented for an exposed secret, I transferred to Trutina College for a fresh start. All I need to do is blend in, keep my head down, and focus on my schoolwork. It should be simple, right? Wrong. It’s my first day on campus, and my plan has already been derailed thanks to a gorgeous tattooed demon. I’m drawn to Emmett like a moth to a flame, but exploring our connection isn’t an option. I can’t risk exposing my secret...”

Kristin: Amazing read!!!!
- If I Never Met You: A Novel by Mhairi McFarlane <— OFFICE ROMANCE!!! Back on the list ’cause Danielle recommends it!! She gets dumped and she’s left reeling… “...they work at the same law firm and she has to see him every day. Her once perfect life is in shambles and the thought of dating again in the age of Tinder is nothing short of horrifying. When news of her ex’s pregnant girlfriend hits the office grapevine, taking the humiliation lying down is not an option. Then a chance encounter in a broken-down elevator with the office playboy opens up a new possibility…”
