Happy Friday ~ 4/19/19

Happy Friday Book friends.
There is no BookEnd this week as I decided to take 
the week off and do a little home improvement. 
The kitchen has a fresh coat of paint and I even squeezed in a book.


Wishing you the very best and I hope you enjoy the holiday.

When We Left Cuba by Chanel Cleeton ~AMAZING GIVEAWAY~





April 9, 2019
Women’s Fiction/Historical Fiction
Penguin/Berkley


In 1960s Florida, a young Cuban exile will risk her life--and heart--to take back her country in this exhilarating historical novel from the author of Next Year in Havana, a Reese Witherspoon Book Club pick.

Beautiful. Daring. Deadly. 

The Cuban Revolution took everything from sugar heiress Beatriz Perez--her family, her people, her country. Recruited by the CIA to infiltrate Fidel Castro's inner circle and pulled into the dangerous world of espionage, Beatriz is consumed by her quest for revenge and her desire to reclaim the life she lost. 

As the Cold War swells like a hurricane over the shores of the Florida Strait, Beatriz is caught between the clash of Cuban American politics and the perils of a forbidden affair with a powerful man driven by ambitions of his own. When the ever-changing tides of history threaten everything she has fought for, she must make a choice between her past and future--but the wrong move could cost Beatriz everything--not just the island she loves, but also the man who has stolen her heart...

The Summer House by Jenny Hale
Forever Publishing
Out Now


Some summers will stay with you forever...

Callie Weaver and best friend Olivia Dixon have finally done it: put their life savings into the beach house they admired through childhood summers, on the dazzling white sand of North Carolina’s Outer Banks. They’re going to buff the salt from its windows, paint its sun-bleached sidings, and open it as a bed and breakfast.

Callie’s too busy to think about her love life, but when she catches the attention of local heartthrob Luke Sullivan, his blue eyes and easy smile make it hard to say no. He’s heir to his father’s property empire, and the papers say he’s just another playboy, but as they laugh in the ocean waves, Callie realizes there’s more to this man than money and good looks.

Just when true happiness seems within reach, Callie and Olivia find a diary full of secrets... secrets that stretch across the island, and have the power to turn lives upside down. As Callie reads, she unravels a mystery that makes her heart drop through the floor.

Will Callie and Luke be pulled apart by the storm it unleashes, or can true love save them?


Set in the Outer Banks this is a sweet read. Originally published in 2017, this is a great time to get reacquainted with Jenny Hale and her writing. A little intrigue, a little love, and a ton of fun.

Great beach bag book for summer.

Meet Cute by Helena Hunting

Get it on Amazon
Forever Publishing
Releases April 9th



I’m a sucker for a second chance romance. Especially when they have to work hard for it to happen. Kailyn and Daxton had the perfect movie “Meet Cute” running smack into each other. Daxton on top breathing heavy and looking down on a sprawling Kailyn, who’s disoriented and taken in by the man above her. Movie magic perfection if you ask me.

Sadly, things change and end in a not so pleasant way. Now, years later, Dax is back and asking for help. Can she do it?

I won't give spoilers, therefore this is it, book friends. Get it. Devour it. And discover the fun of Meet Cute. Indulge in the chemistry and banter of Daxton and Kailyn. It’s a perfect addition to any nightstand reading stack or beach bag.

5 Stars

Girl Most Likely by Max Allen Collins

Get it on Amazon

LittleBird/Thomas Mercer
Release April 1st


It’s never too late for revenge in this thrilling novel by New York Times bestselling and award-winning crime master Max Allan Collins.

In a small Midwest town, twenty-eight-year-old Krista Larson has made her mark as the youngest female police chief in the country. She’s learned from the best: her father, Keith, a decorated former detective. But as accustomed as they are to the relative quiet of their idyllic tourist town, things quickly turn with Krista’s ten-year high school reunion.

With the out-of-towners holed up in a lakefront lodge, it doesn’t take long to stir up old grudges and resentments. Now a successful TV host, Astrid Lund, voted the “Girl Most Likely to Succeed”—and then some—is back in town. Her reputation as a dogged reporter has made the stunning blonde famous. Her reputation among her former classmates and rivals has made her infamous. Astrid’s list of enemies is a long one. And as the reunion begins, so does a triple murder investigation.

Krista and her father are following leads and opening long-locked doors from their hometown to the Florida suburbs to Chicago’s underworld. They just never imagined what would be revealed: the secrets and scandals of Krista’s own past.



Who likes a good thriller? THIS GIRL!

Super fast paced and loaded with the best kind of drama to keep the reader invested. It’s a quick read, but a good one. Girl Most Likely is what I call a “waiting room read” easy to pick up and put down. Enjoyable and one you’ll want to keep in you bag.

A Rancher to Remember by Karen Rock

Get it on Amazon


They can’t change the past…

but they can choose their future

Globe-trotting journalist Cassidy Fulton is back in Carbondale, Colorado. Only she can’t remember why—or the accident that killed her estranged sister. Helping her piece together this mystery is her brother-in-law and former fiancé, Daryl Loveland. Overcoming their grief seems impossible. Yet one thing is clear: Cassidy can’t imagine her life without Daryl or her adorable niece and nephew. But can the ranch ever really be her home?





Oh, friends!!! I am over the moon right now. A Rancher to Remember is my first read by author Karen Rock and it will not be my last! I was lucky enough to win an ARC during a giveaway on Carols Crazy Bookish World Facebook page. (sidenote; great group. Go join)

So anyway… back to the book. Brace yourselves for one crazy complicated story of love, betrayal, hurt, anger, and shocking circumstances that ultimately lead to a dramatic plot twist that had me rereading immediately.

A Rancher to Remember is a broken-hearted yet sweet second chance romance filled with a raw emotion that will keep the pages turning.

5 Stars, book friends!
