Book Review – The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue

Book Review – The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue

I was on the library waiting list for two months for this book and finally got it on Friday. It’s 442 pages in small font, but I read the whole thing in one weekend. Literally could not put it down.

My review: 5 stars

If you like fantasy and great storytelling, this book is for you. It’s fabulous! V.E. Schwab winds the story over three hundred years and across the entire world and makes it look effortless. The writing is superb, the prose is the kind that wiggles down inside you and makes your heart ache because of the beauty. You want to immerse yourself in the pages, get lost, and never come back.

This is one I will be buying for my own collection and will reread many times over. Well done, Ms. Schwab!

Christmas Eve, Bookworms! Are you ready?

I can’t believe it’s come so fast. At our family party last night my mother-in-law commented that she could still smell Thanksgiving turkey in the house and now suddenly it’s Christmas. I agree! It’s come fast, but it’s been a great season and here are two more of my favorite authors to share their decorations with you.

Jennifer Youngblood‘s tree is so pretty and I think it has a type of Southern charm that is distinctive to her.

And Rachelle J. Christensen has a fantastic tree that reminds me so much of the fresh trees my dad used to bring down from the mountains when I was a kid. She says it looks kind of funny because it tipped over and they had to redecorate. Love it!

We’re getting down to the wire and I still have lots more pictures to show you! Here’s how two of my favorite authors decorate their trees:

Kimberly Krey uses all the ornaments her four children have made over the years. She says it’s getting a bit crowded, but they love it. I love the big letters in front of the tree, what a clever idea.

And here is Taylor Hart with her gorgeous tree and sweet doggo. I love the turquoise ribbon. So pretty!

Kimberley Montpetit has a cute little vintage car on her snow covered village roads and a tree with some gorgeous red bows.

      

And Christine Kersey’s tree is so colorful and packed with ornaments! I want to curl up in that comfy looking chair and read all day.

Cindy Roland Anderson has a beautiful, colorful tree and a Christmas village that makes you want to start caroling.

      

And here’s Cami Checketts‘ gorgeous tree (love the big snowflakes!) and her goofball son nicknamed Pizza who likes to photobomb. The cardboard image is Cami’s oldest son who is on a two-year religious mission in the Philippines and this is their last Christmas without him so they’re all excited.

Soulmates (Heaven and a Cowboy Book 2)

by Erica Penrod

Abbie Dawson left everything behind when she set out for college four years ago. She had to get away from the place she and Jess fell in love; but, hidden in her heart was another truth: she had to distance herself from Caleb, Jess’s older brother. She’d dreamt of and loved Caleb beyond anything she’d known in this world and had chosen his brother instead.

When Abbie returns to Greyson, Idaho to fill the position as the town librarian and the past comes walking through the door, she’s forced to remember the magic between she and Caleb. But Caleb has moved on, he’s dating another woman and Abbie intends to do the same with Travis Doyle, the new guy she met. She knows that whatever she and Caleb discovered in their dreams was never meant to be here, on this side of the night.

Caleb can’t have Abbie, he never could, other than in his dreams where she was his and only his. He spent years trying to forget her, and even found someone else, but that doesn’t stop his heart from remembering all the ways she once loved him the moment he sees her again. The guilt of loving his brothers girl carved a hole in his soul and drove him to the point of hallucinating. He’s seen visions of Jess, even imagined Jess telling him to love Abbie. He can’t take the chance of giving in to his desires, no matter what his brother says. Guardian angel or not, Jess is wrong.

How could Abbie be his soulmate when fate has done nothing but drive them apart?

Courting the Cowboy

by Liz Isaacson

May Sotheby is the heiress to the ritziest restaurant in Grape Seed Falls. In business for over a hundred years, her father wants the restaurant in Texas Hill Country to stay in the family for generations to come, so he lays down some hard news for May: She has one year to find a husband or the restaurant where she’s worked since a teen will go to her already-married sister.

Frustrated with the cowboy-only dating scene in Grape Seed Falls and needing to find a beau fast, she joins an online dating website, TexasFaithful, hoping to find her soul mate without having to relocate–or deal with cowboy hats and boots. She has no idea that Kurt Pemberton, foreman at Grape Seed Ranch, is the man she starts communicating with.

Kurt can’t get off the ranch much, so TexasFaithful is ideal for him to meet potential women without wasting time. As he nears fifty, he finds his patience for finding the right woman waning, and the Christian dating website fixes all that.

When he learns May is the beautiful woman he’s been corresponding with, he couldn’t be happier. May, however, is scared off by the close proximity of Kurt, the big white cowboy hat, and the expectations of her family. If she’d known she was courting the cowboy all this time, she might not have done it. Will May be able to follow her heart so she can keep Kurt and her restaurant?

Chemistry between them sparks fast, and soon Kira’s certain she’s right where she needs to be. But when someone from her past shows, offering long-sought redemption, Kira has to make a choice.

Dating the Rogue Cowboy

by Lucy McConnell

Oakley Price made a promise to her angel parents that she would see younger sister’s dream of becoming a barrel racer come true. When Bri is thrown into a fence and almost trampled by a high-spirited horse, Oakley’s doubts and fear of being alone threaten to shut down their rodeo season before it begins. She doesn’t have the knowledge or the experience to coach Bri; but, she knows who does—the helpful but shy cowboy from work, Will Dumont.

William Dumont spent his growing-up years in the saddle. He ran away from the Lime Peak Ranch at age 18 and has created a life for himself in the Silicon Slopes far away from rodeo, the Lime Peak Ranch, and his family. However, he wouldn’t mind spending time with the woman who walks by his desk every day. There’s just something special about Oakley. Which is why, despite all his misgivings, he agrees to coach Oakley’s little sister. But, William can’t hide from the Dumont legacy—not in the rodeo circuit—and soon his family becomes tangled in the complicated and delicate strands of his and Oakley’s potential relationship.

In order to keep Oakley in his life, William will have to figure out what kind of a man he wants to be—a runaway or a rogue cowboy.
