Baby, I’m Howling for You by Christine Warren

Renny Landry is one tough, wolf shape-shifter! She’s running away from her librarian job and a crazy, maniac, coyote shape-shifter who is obsessed with her and won’t give up until he can find her. Renny knows that the best place to run is Alpha, Washington, the new home for any “other” shape-shifter who is alone and needs help. Those crazy coyotes are on her trail about to win just as Renny makes it to a cabin outside of Alpha. Mick Fischer owns the cabin and the last thing that he needs is a red coyote to enter his lair, especially if she is a gorgeous red! Ok, I’ve got to admit that I’m a sucker for any “hot” librarian story! I also can finally admit that Christine Warren has me hooked on her wonderfully detailed stories on the lives of the shape-shifters. Funny, handsome, beautiful and sexy characters make this a fabulous story with lots of action and adventure!

The Recipe Box by Viola Shipman

Sam Nelson leaves New York after she quits her job as a pastry chef to go back to her family-run orchard and bakery in Michigan. Sam hears stories and learns lessons from her grandmother about her family’s past as she tries to find her way to love and happiness. The story is filled with lovely dessert recipes at the end of chapters. A sweet story filled with heartwarming, family-love and stories. I liked the plot, however, I couldn’t connect with Sam on any level. She was unemotional and rigid which had me wondering who in the world would fall in love with such a “cold fish”.

The Recipe Box by Viola Shipman will be available March 20, 2018 from Thomas Dunne Books, an imprint of St. Martin’s Press. An egalley of this book was made available by the publisher in exchange for a honest review.

When the Stars Come Out by Laura Trentham

Willa was the first woman employee of the Abbott Brothers Garage. No one in Cottonbloom, Louisiana believed that a woman could be the expert mechanic that Willa was. Jackson Abbott always admired her skill but little did he know that under those coveralls and grimy baseball cap was a beautiful woman who had a terrible crush on him. Willa had always liked Jackson and dreamed of running her hands though his gorgeous brown hair! Jackson was beginning to notice her but Willa wouldn’t let her guard down. She couldn’t let him find out about her secrets; the ones that kept her from letting Jackson know how she really felt.
This newest installment of Laura Trentham’s Cottonbloom series has a sensitive story with multi-dimensional characters who are filled with raw, pulsating emotion. Reading a Laura Trentham novel has the reader hanging on to their own emotions from the very first page. Expect your heartstrings to be plucked and played like a violin as you roll with feelings that are so real that you’ll swear that you’re the one in the Abbott Brothers shop staring into Jackson’s eyes! I love Laura Trentham’s Cottonbloom series! Five big stars!!
