Four Stars

Falling in love is the ultimate faux pas.   Anything can happen in a year! Unemployed, homeless, and left at the altar, Vivia Perpetua Grant could see her future as a flannel pajama wearing spinster—or worse, a bag lady shuffling around Golden Gate Park. But for a girl obsessed with rock music, Chinese take-out, and the color pink, misfortune is another word for opportunity. Vivia has found her niche as an international travel writer and the long-distance lover of Jean-Luc de Caumont, an über-hot French literature professor and competitive cyclist.   Still, even with so much going right, Vivia can’t help but wonder if something isn’t missing. The long distance thing is taking its toll on a girl who didn’t have that many tokens to begin with. And fate seems to be tempting her at every turn, first with a hunky Scottish helicopter pilot, and then with a British celebrity bad boy…Will Vivia continue to keep it real or will she discover some old habits die hard?

The Butterfly Code – Book Review

 

 

The Butterfly Code by Sue Wyshynski

Dr. Hunter Cayman is in charge of Phoenix Research Lab located just outside of the small town of Deep Cove. He is mysterious and sexy and everyone around her is warning her off.

“For a doctor in charge of a research facility, he’s young. Late twenties, maybe. His dark gray T-shirt stretches across his muscular chest. His thumbs are hooked into the pockets of his well-fitting jeans, and his strong forearms are bare to the relentless drizzle. In fact, he seems to enjoy the misty wetness. Like he’s in his element.”

Throwback Thursday: Lady Midnight – Book Review

 

Throwback Thursday is a series where we take a look back at some of ARR’s most popular posts. Enjoy!

Wow. Lady Midnight broke my heart over and over and over and I
couldn’t even have time to breathe.

If you’re a fan of the Shadowhunter Chronicles, you’ll most definitely
not be disappointed! Like I said, Lady Midnight has taken a new plot
that I really didn’t expect. In my opinion, I’m currently liking it
better than The Infernal Devices or The Mortal Instruments, which is saying something, because a) TID is basically my life (because Will
and Jem, duh) and b) Because The Dark Artifices has only one book
released as of yet, and I’m already loving it more than all the other
previous series.

The only thing Marie and Seth agree on is that getting the Red Door Inn ready to open in just two months will take everything they’ve got–and they have to find a way to work together. In the process, they may find something infinitely sweeter than they ever imagined on this island of dreams.
