Dangerous Favor

Mathilde is 18, so she feels kind of stupid trailing after her brother to one of his tournaments, but her father insisted. Mathilde doesn't know anyone in the tournament besides her brother, but she knows that she needs an ally and fast! Her father has been accused of stealing from the king, and that had made their family lose all of their wealth and good standing. Mathilde figures that if she finds a knight that would be willing to help her find out what really happened to the things her father was accused of stealing, she can make her family right again. It wouldn't hurt if the knight was handsome or wealthy either. Enter Lord Therri and Etienne. Therri is amazingly handsome, Mathilde refers to him as the Vision, but he doesn't even really notice Mathilde. Etienne is another matter altogether. He thinks that Mathilde is beautiful, but knows as the younger son that he must marry someone with a great dowry. Things at the tournament get out of hand and in order to protect her, Mathilde's brother, cuts her hair and leaves her with Etienne and Therri as a squire, only they don't know that it's Mathilde, they think she's her twin Mathieu. That's when all the craziness happens!


This was a fun book. I liked the plot, set in Medival times. I liked the characters. I like how all the characters in Joyce DiPatena's novels intermingle, so you can tell what happens to them after their stories end. I like the romantic parts and that it's completely clean.

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&…
