Gallows Humor (Curtis and Reynolds #1) – Carolyn Elizabeth

One of my favourite things as a reader is discovering new (to me) authors. Another is when a debut novel is so good it’s hard to believe it’s a debut. I got both with this book. Corey Curtis doesn’t fluster easily. She’s very good at her job as an Autopsy Services Coordinator at Jackson City … Continue reading Gallows Humor (Curtis and Reynolds #1) – Carolyn Elizabeth

The More The Merrier – Elena Graf

This Christmas novella is not as sweet and cute as others I’ve read this year, and that’s what makes it so good. I’m very much a character-driven reader, and when characters stay with me months after I first met them, it’s always a good sign. When I read High October, I found myself liking Liz … Continue reading The More The Merrier – Elena Graf

Shadows & Dreams (Kate Kane, Paranormal Investigator #2) – Alexis Hall

Iron & Velvet, the first Kate Kane book, had taken me by surprise, in the best way. I’d really enjoyed the gothic vampire / film noir atmosphere, and the cynical but benevolent Kate.

Kate is on trial for the … Continue reading Shadows & Dreams (Kate Kane, Paranormal Investigator #2) – Alexis Hall

Too Late… I Love You – Kiki Archer & Ella Lynch (narrator)

This is my second book (audiobook, actually) by Kiki Archer, and it was as delightful as the first one (But She Is My Student). Connie Parker's life revolves around her three-year-old son Noah, a fact her boyfriend Karl fails to understand. Yet, while she loves her son more than anything, she's sometimes bored with her … Continue reading Too Late… I Love You – Kiki Archer & Ella Lynch (narrator)

Big Girl Pill – K.D. Williamson

4.5 * Nina was Maya’s best friend, the most important person in her life – with her brothers –, until they slept together one drunken night in their last year of college. Nina, a supposedly straight girl, had complained about a bad experience with a woman (it's college, right?) and Maya had offered to show … Continue reading Big Girl Pill – K.D. Williamson

The Good Girl – Madeleine Taylor

4.5* While I've been reading more and more erotica lately, I'm by no means an expert, and I've been very pleasantly surprised by how varied a genre it is. In the last, say, three months, I read The X Ingredient by Roslyn Sinclair, Party of Three by Sandy Lowe (the audiobook version, perfectly narrated by … Continue reading The Good Girl – Madeleine Taylor
