Christmas Makeover

About the book: Chelsea Jamison has been infatuated with Drew Stirling longer than she's loved playing basketball, high-top sneakers, and the Knicks. Unfortunately, all Drew sees is the kid who kicked his trash in the high school free throw contest and not the girl whose heart breaks into a fast dribble when he's near. 
Drew makes an unexpected visit home to Echo Ridge and their friendship picks up where they left off as they scheme to make a teenaged boy's Christmas dreams come true. When Chelsea realizes she's fallen for her best friend, she wonders if there is any hope of a relationship with Drew or if she's stuck in buddy-status for life.

My review: Are you ready for Christmas books yet? I know I am, I can't wait for Christmas!

I got to read this one again all by itself (it's originally part of Christmas Kisses: An Echo Ridge Anthology) and I loved it just as much this time as when I had originally read it. The characters are cute and I love the way the old department store, Kenworth's becomes a character in and of itself. I loved Chelsea, it was so funny the way that she was trying to sneak around to stay off her best friend, Jessica's, radar so that she wouldn't try to give her yet another makeover. Chelsea has always been content to live in workout clothes, but Drew her best friend and guy she's liked forever, has finally come back to town. He's always seen her as just the hang out and do sports buddy. Maybe a little makeover wouldn't hurt and would make him look at her another way. And there's such a cute story going on with Mason too. This is such a fun story!

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

  1. Thank you Cathy! I'm thrilled you enjoyed it. I just finished writing Jessica's story for the next Echo Ridge set and it was fun. She's a crackup.
    Hugs and thanks,

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&…
