Clockwork Prince

This is a sequel to Clockwork Angel, which happens to be a prequel series to The Mortal Instruments series. I haven't read any of The Mortal Instruments series and the books still make sense, but you definitely want to read Clockwork Angel before this one. Tessa lives in Victorian London. She moved there from the United States, because her brother Nate asked her to after her Aunt Harriet died. Unfortunately, Nate only wanted her to come to London because The Magister wanted to marry her and use Tessa's power that she didn't even know she had for himself. Tessa was rescued by the Shadowhunters, who she still lives with at the start of this book. But there's a possibility that the safety that Tessa has found with the Shadowhunters could be taken away. Charlotte, the director of the Institute, is being threatened. Certain Shadowhunters no longer want her to be director. It's up to Tessa, Will, and Jem to figure out just why they want Charlotte gone and ultimately to find The Magister, before he comes after Tessa again. This book was full of great action and adventure. Not to mention one of my most favorite times and places. Victorian London is an amazing place, full of mystery and magic. I enjoyed the plot, although I thought the language could be improved.

Kayaks and Kisses

About the book: Brynn Caley is about to start her dream career running an outdoor sporting goods store when an out-of-town business guru makes his own offer on the property. Coerced into forming a temporary partnership, Brynn, with her ski experience, finds she has to work with fishing expert Gage to run the year-round shop. 

Through a series of innocent misconceptions and a few blatant lies, Brynn doesn’t realize that the handsome single guy on the construction crew is her new partner, and he doesn’t want to set her straight until he can gain her favor. She, on the other hand, would do anything not to work with the stuffy businessman she’s only met through email. 

Inspired by the movies You’ve Got Mail and The Shop around the Corner, Kayaks & Kisses is a heart-warming tale of finding love in autumn leaves, outdoor activities, and new friendships.

My review: This book was so fun! I loved that it's loosely based on one of my very favorite movies, You've Got Mail. There was at …

About the book: Fat-free cheese is okay—unless you’ve tasted real cheese. Juliet Easton learns this about love too as she uncovers who truly loves her, and who is using her to get to the secret she knows about the disappearance of her sister’s fiance and the pharmaceutical conspiracy he plans to reveal. Can she protect her loved ones’ lives and her heart? You’ll be hooked from Asiago to Zamorano cheese in this suspenseful and hilarious romantic thriller.

My review: I was amazed at just how much I loved this whole book. I picked it up and read it in one day because I wanted to know just what happened so badly. Such a great book, and I had to laugh at the author's name, Sharp is a kind of cheddar cheese so it totally goes with the title.

I loved the way that Juliet is the main character in this book, because it easily could have been her sister Eva, I think having Juliet the main character brings a ton of extra plot greatness. I also liked the way there were tons of flashbacks to Eva&…
