Countdown to Love

It's Kelly's wedding day, and as she looks in the mirror at the stunningly beautiful bride standing before her, she doesn't recognize her at all. She's just a country girl born and bred in Tennessee. Kelly hadn't realized it, but her fiance Trevor, isn't at the church and ready for the wedding. She tries several times to call him, but he doesn't answer. When she goes to her condo and realizes that Trevor hasn't been paying the bills, she's being kicked out and he's gone, she isn't sure just what to do. So she grabs her wedding dress, her cake and camps out on the steps of her Daddy's home, where her cousin Sissy, a producer of Countdown to Love, a reality show finds her later. Sissy has some problems of her own, one of the female contestants on the show is not going to be able to be on the show. Sissy gets an idea, Kelly doesn't have anything to do and needs some money to pay for the wedding that didn't happen, and Sissy needs an attractive female to fill in for her on the reality show. Sissy's able to finally talk Kelly into going on the show, by promising that she'll only have to be on the first episode, and she'll be headed back home with money to pay her bills. But Kelly doesn't count on falling for the handsome bachelor Dillon Black. I've been wanting to read this book for awhile now, but the library here hasn't gotten it. Lucky for me, it's on the Whitney Award nominees list and I was able to read an e-copy from the Whitney Academy. This book was so fun! I loved Kelly, she starts out so....brainwashed by her boyfriend Trevor, she really can't think for herself, but by the end she figures out just who she wants to be, and she may even find true love along the way!

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 …

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&…
