Read and enjoyed June 30, 2021

It has been a while since I last shared books read and enjoyed, they have accumulated somewhat and need clearing out. I’ll start with the ones I liked the best and then quickly run through the rest.

While I loved some more than others they were all worth the read.

It’s funny how one weakness can show up over and over in the same grouping of books. This time it was over use of the word had. Fortunately, it just seemed like it happened in many books, it didn’t really.

I loved this first one.

Just Look Up 

After tirelessly climbing the ranks of her Chicago-based interior design firm, Lane Kelley is about to land her dream promotion when devastating news about her brother draws her back home—a quaint tourist town full of memories she’d just as soon forget. With her cell phone and laptop always within reach, Lane aims to check on her brother while staying focused on work—something her eclectic family doesn’t understand.

Ryan Brooks never expected to settle down in Harbor Pointe, Michigan, but after his final tour of duty, it was the only place that felt like home. Now knee-deep in a renovation project that could boost tourism for the struggling town, he is thrilled to see Lane, the girl he secretly once loved, even if the circumstances of her homecoming aren’t ideal.


This one was fun,

Three Little Words (Walker Family)

Ava Kingsley and Seth Walker might be the most unlikely friends ever. The only thing these two polar opposites have in common is a knack for wordsmithing. Back in college, they were known for their written sparring in the campus newspaper’s popular “He Says/She Says” column.

At their ten-year college reunion, they pick up right where they left off. Except this time their squabbling leads to a surprising turn: friendship and a year-long exchange of emails. So when Ava approaches a crossroads in her athletics department career in Minnesota, Seth is quick to offer the open apartment above the restaurant he’s been remodeling in Maple Valley, Iowa.


Now that I’ve refreshed my memory, this was another one I really liked.

One Enchanted Christmas: A Novella (Enchanted Christmas Collection Book 1)

Last December, mystery author Maren Grant had the most perfect night of her life. On a glimmering winter evening, she got to watch the photo shoot for her very first book and ended up on a magical date with the cover model himself—Colin Renwycke.

Fast forward one year. This December, with a looming deadline, restless spirit and her creative spark long since gone, Maren is desperate to get unstuck. And she can’t get Colin out of her head…or his year-old open invitation to spend a couple weeks writing at his family’s farm.


OK, clumping together all the rest.

My current read is actually the last one here. Deception. I needed three to complete the look so added it with a promise.

Wouldn’t you know it, in the beginning pages of this new book had appears three times in the same sentence. That’s hilarious.

Some of these books are still bargains if you are tempted.

Bargains or not, the authors will be happy if you buy one of their books. I hope you are tempted.

I’m purposely not looking at the suggestion strips today after the abundance we have been enjoying. Tomorrow.

Happy Reading!
