The Sidelined Wife

bookpeel*****Janice Moore is the winner of this giveaway*****

January was a good month for books for me. I read so many stellar books I want to share. Today’s feature is by Jennifer Peel, a prolific writer who is one of my writing heroes. Seriously. She writes the perfect romances, in my opinion. Now that I write my own books, I realize every reader has different tastes. Some books I love, others think are meh. Some books that don’t jive with me, other readers think are the bomb.com. It’s just how life is. None of us are the same in our tastes and preferences…and I like the diversity of thought and opinions (unlike some on FB who have to bash anyone who dares think differently than them–ahem…Hitler?)

But to get to my point 🙂 I love Jennifer’s books. She has like 20 or so out there now (I’m too tired to go count right now, but it’s a lot). Another thing I like about Jennifer is she’s just a Continue reading

Trouble in Loveland by Jennifer Peel

What does dating the boss + meddling ex-wife + most adorable three-year-old ever equal? Trouble in Loveland.

At seventeen, Charlee Jensen packed her bags and left her beloved hometown of Loveland, swearing she would never have anything to do with the men that left her heartbroken: her father, the man that taught her heroes can fall; and Ryan Carter, her much older neighbor and teenage crush.

Now eight years later, Charlee has two degrees she never wanted and no job prospects, forcing her to swallow her pride and come home to work for her father’s accounting firm—the same firm where newly divorced Ryan Carter is now a partner. Continue reading

More Trouble in Loveland

MOREYea! Another release for Jennifer Peel, one of my favorite authors ever!!! This is a sequel to Trouble in Loveland, which I adored!!! Charlee is one of my favorite heroine’s of all time, so I was super excited to see another book starring her red heel awesomeness. Here’s the blurb:

Charlee Jensen-Carter has been looking forward to her first Christmas with her new husband, Ryan, and her adorable stepson for weeks. Not only is her dad tying the knot, but she’s looking forward to two weeks of no exes, no drama, and especially no trouble. At least that’s what she thinks.

First, she gets talked into wearing red hooker heels again. Next, she finds herself trying to save her dad’s wedding. And if that isn’t bad enough, more than one ex shows up, and she’s suddenly in the middle of more trouble than she ever bargained for. Continue reading

Another Great Read

peelThis past week has been an adventure. I had surgery on my hip and so have had some down time. Here’s a great book I read while I was sitting back with my legs up. It’s by one of my favorite authors. I’ve loved all the Women of Merryton books that Jennifer Peel has written, but this one had some extra chemistry or magic mojo that made me really connect with the characters. I loved it.

Rachel Laine was a minor side character in the other books, but I could tell she was special and was excited when she became the heroine in this one. Rachel’s wild twin sister, Sydney, died in childbirth at age 21 and Rachel stepped in to raise her child as her own. For eight years, she has loved Drew with all her heart and been the best mother possible to him. She really is the cutest mother ever. Continue reading

Amazing Spring Reads

DSC03185 Spring is here! I’ve been enjoying it to the fullest by walking around my yard everyday to see what new color iris blooms will surprise me. I’ve also been busily working on my new book (which is tentatively titled “Giving up Hope”…but that could definitely change over time). And last, but not least, I’ve been reading.

One author that has become one of my new favorites is Jennifer Peel. I’ve mentioned her before after reading House Divided, but I’ve now finished all her works and loved every single one. I thought I’d spotlight each and interview her so you can Continue reading

House Divided

house divided

There is a law irrevocably decreed in the state of Alabama that you must choose a team. You’re either an Auburn fan or an Alabama Fan. There is no fence sitting or waffling. It’s one or the other. However, it doesn’t mean that you can’t fall in love with someone from the opposing side. They even have a name for it … House Divided.

Ellie Eaton and Brady Jackson were just such a couple, but unfortunately they were separated by more than just their loyalty to a university. Against the odds and against the rules, Ellie and Brady dove right into the forbidden current of friendship and then love. Their sweet, innocent romance was one for the storybooks, but old rules and family prejudices Continue reading
