New Review! Paradise Cove by Jenny Holiday

Paradise Cove (Matchmaker Bay #2) by Jenny Holiday

Our latest book club pick was Jenny Holiday’s Paradise Cove, the second book in her Matchmaker Bay series. Although this book looked beachy and breezy, it actually dealt with some heavy topics like loss of a child and grief.

New Review! Would I Lie to the Duke by Eva Leigh

Would I Lie to the Duke (The Union of the Rakes, #2) by Eva Leigh

Jess believes she has to hide her true identity to gain the attention, and hopefully financial backing, of society’s most powerful people. When she catches the Duke’s eye, and eventually his heart, her lie becomes bigger than herself.

Although there are some ethical questions raised about lying to the one you love, I did really enjoy the second book in Eva Leigh’s The Union of the Rakes series.

New Review! Love Lettering by Kate Clayborn

Love Lettering by Kate Clayborn

This book was filled with surprises – I loved the affection for New York City, the very romantic love story, the importance of female friendships and a critique on greed and capitalism. What a great pick for Between These Sheets Book Club – and as a native New Yorker, I have lots of opinions to share with the club!
