Drops of Gold

Mary Wood has been hired as the new governess at the Meadows. But Mary has a secret, Mary isn't really her name, and she doesn't really have any credentials to be a governess, but her father has died leaving her all alone in the world and she doesn't see any other way she can make it. As she's on her way to the Meadows, Mary is cautioned not to go there, but she really feels as though her life there will be almost... idyllic, how could it not be at a house named the Meadows. When she arrives, though, the door is slammed in her face and she's told that a governess would not have been hired. She soon discovers why, as her charge, Caroline Jonquil is only 4 years old, quite young for a governess. Caroline is a sweet child, but she's been treated very unkindly by the nurses that she had previously had, and she quickly extracts a promise from Mary to never leave her. Mary never intends to leave such a sweet girl, but she realizes quickly that that decision may be taken out of her hands. Especially when she talks back to her new boss, Layton Jonquil. Layton is a man living a life full of guilt over his former wife's death. But when the beautiful Miss Mary Wood is able to bring Caroline out of her shy shell, Layton knows that if he is not careful, he could be taken with her as well and that would not end well for any of them.

This book was so cute! I loved Mary/Marion, I loved the way she hides her hurt, but shows little bits through the stories she tells to both Caroline and Layton. I loved Layton, how much grief he has for his one small lie after his wife died. I also really enjoyed how Mary resolved that so that he could get on with his life. The ending of this one is really sweet! You can't go wrong with a romance by Sarah M Eden!

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&…
