Blog Tour - Lady Helen Finds a Song Review and Giveaway



About the book: Spring 1813
The exotic splendors of India are legendary, and the colorful sights of her new home in Calcutta immediately captivate eighteen-year-old Lady Helen Poulter. Whereas many of her fellow British expatriates despise the culture they see as barbaric, Helen sees excitement int he unusual locale. it is in this vibrant, bustling city that she finds a kindred soul in Captain Michael Rhodes, an Englishman whose lifelong love of India runs deep. Their friendship quickly grows, yet despite their undeniable connection, she could never think of Captain Rhodes as more than a dear friend.

Her love, in truth, has been captured by dashing British Lieutenant Arthur Bancroft. This handsome soldier represents the embodiment of all she's dreamed of in a husband. Preoccupied by her growing affections, Helen never dreams that beneath the glamor o the city, hostilities are reaching a boiling point. When battle ultimately threatens both of the men in her life, she must make a choice: pursue the man who symbolizes her British past, or let herself love a man who promises an unknown future in the land she loves. But amid the casualties of war, will her declaration of love come too late?

My review: I LOVED this book! I loved the way the things that Lady Helen sees are well enough described that I felt as though I too was in India. I loved the setting, the plot, the monkey and the romance of the whole situation!

Lady Helen is accompanying her mother and her mother's new husband, Jim, on his latest military assignment to India. She's uncertain just what she will find when they arrive but is delighted with all of it. The country is beautiful and she is quite taken with the people and the customs that she is able to see as well. I loved the way she still loves these things, even when those around her (the annoying Fanny in particular) tell her that these people are heathens - that nothing they do could ever be beautiful.

I loved the way that Lady Helen came to care for those that she met there, there is a scene where she meets the woman who basically amounts to the queen and Helen is gracious and kind. I loved the way that she truly came to be a friend of this young woman and the easy way she came to care for many of the natives of India. Lady Helen is one of my favorite characters ever!

I loved Michael too! I love the way that he sees Lady Helen for the first time and falls head over heels for her, even though he thinks there's no way she could ever feel the same. I love the way he sacrifices himself later, thinking that he's doing something for the woman that he loves, even when that proves to be incorrect. And who wouldn't want to have a pet monkey?!

Jennifer Moore has written another amazing regency romance and you won't want to miss this great book!


I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

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 …

Blog Tour - Love and Fat Free Cheese

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&…
