It’s time once again for Kathryn’s weekly meme “It’s Monday! What are You Reading?“, at Book Date, where we share what we’re reading and have read over the past week.
What I Read Last Week
I read books 10 books – 1 paranormal. 1 woman’s fiction, 3 contemporary romances, 1 historical fiction and 4 picture books.
One Foot in the Grave by Jeaniene Frost. I enjoyed this second book in her paranormal series as much as the first. Now will be the challenge to find the rest of the series.
The Year That Changed Everything by Cathy Kelly. Three women share the same birthday but very different lives. So enjoyed this.
The Dating Charade by Melissa Ferguson. Would you tell the truth about taking in 3 kids if you had just met someone new? A charming romance.
2 books by Avril Tremayne
Here Comes the Bridesmaid. I first read this romance when it was a finalist of the SYTYCW contest several years ago. It was my choice, although it didn’t win. It was published though and so I bought the book and read it again. After the upheaval all over the past few weeks, I had need of a humorous book and I remembered this. I loved it as much as the first 2 times I read it. Quirky characters, snappy dialogue, humour and a first-rate romance.
The Dating Game. Thoroughly enjoyed this romance as well. Sarah agrees to be painted by David, but is determined to keep her distance.
The Duchess in His Bed by Lorraine Heath. Another new author, this time an historical romance and yes, I really enjoyed it. Anxious now to read more of her work.
