4 stars-- Fatal Frost (Dewberry Farm #2) by Karen MacInerney

Nice mysteries, interesting set up, great narration. Fatal Frost was a fantastic time.
The Gist: Someone is intent on being a Grinch. The ladies in town are receiving nasty letters accusing them of all kinds of things and two of those ladies, well, they wind up dead. Even worse? One of Lucy's good friends is being accused of the murders.

2 stars-- Royal Date (The Royals of Monterra, #1) by Sariah Wilson

Eh. If you've watched a Hallmark movie with a royal family you basically know the gist of Royal Date. Poor heroine on holiday catches a Prince's eye and then winds up hurt and taken under his wing for the holidays. He's smitten, she resists, the temptation of betraying him is presented, she breaks up with him yada yada.

SIGN UP-- 2019 All About the Trope Challenge

All About the Trope! I enjoyed this challenge as well. It's a little different in that you're tracking a trope instead of a genre. 

Pick your trope then read...as many as you want. 

SIGN UP-- 2019 Blogger Shame Challenge

Blogger Shame Challenge. Yes! This one has been such a good challenge for me over the last couple years. It's helped me tame my review pile and lighten the stress of all those review books that were so far past their review date.
Basically, this is a way to cheekily catch up on review request copies that have been languishing on your review pile for at least 6 months and are way past due to the author or publisher.

They can be print, audio or ebooks.

SIGN UP-- 2019 Blog All About It Challenge

Blog All About It turned out to be one of my favorite challenges of 2018. It was a nice way to stretch my blogger wings and get some fun posts up so I decided to do it again!

Basically there's a word each month and any time during the month you can blog about that word. In any way you want. Review, recipe, photos, stories, etc

[memes] The Concert that Didn't Happen, Bookish Pretties + my week in books

 I wanted to meme. And only had one weekly post to do it. So there's a whole lotta memeage happening in this post. You might have to scroll down a bit to get the one you're looking for. 😸

Args! This week. It really wasn't so bad overall but ended with some disappointment. I planted a lot, noticed my lettuce and garlic coming up!, worked at the food pantry and did a lot of piddling around the house getting ready for a trip to Georgia for a concert.

3.5 stars-- Want Me, Cowboy (Copper Ridge: Desire #5) by Maisey Yates

Cowboys and Christmas! Yall know that's my catnip. Want Me, Cowboy was delightful!

The Gist: Poppy and Isaiah have worked together for 10 years. And suddenly her boss decides he needs a wife and tasks her with putting an ad in the paper and...finding him one. Seeing she's been in love with him for a decade and wants to fill that position herself, well, yes, she's a spot fit to be tied.

These two were interesting!

3 stars-- Instant Temptation (Wilder #3) by Jill Shalvis

Overall I enjoyed Instant Temptation! But, I did have some issues with a couple scenes that were really inappropriate.
The Gist: Well. Harley and TJ have some sparks. And some irritation with one another. Something he don't understand the source of. But he's going to find out even if he has to invite himself along on a multi day hike she's taking for work. They're gonna settle this. Even if they have to get nekkid to do so. Mmhm.
