The Tide of the Mermaid Tears

Ember Taffee lives with her mother and sister in a cottage by the sea. She loves to walk along the ocean, especially in the morning and evening, and search for treasures in the sand. Some of her very favorite treasures are Mermaid Tears, or Sea Glass. Glass that's been in the sea so long, it's smoothed and shaped like a perfect tear. One morning, just as she's about to give up her treasure hunting, she finds five beautiful Mermaid tears, and then she finds a man washed up on the beach. This is no ordinary man, he's extraordinarily handsome, so much so that Ember pretends to herself that he's a present for her from  Neptune himself. The man needs help, so Ember helps him to her cottage so that her mother can care for the man. Ridge West has some secrets that he's not willing to share with the helpful Taffee family, simply to protect them from any harm that they might share for helping him. But soon he falls deeply in love with Ember. Little does he know that she's falling for him as well. But they must face his past and his future together before they are to live happily ever after. I enjoyed this story. This one like most of the others, is a fairly quick read. It's clean, I don't think there were any swear words in this one like there have been in others and the hero is an old fashioned kind of guy.

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 …

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&…
