Mixing It Up – Book Review

This is the second book I have read by Author Tracie Bannister, the first one I read was Twin Piques, I really enjoyed it.

So, after hearing that Tracie had a new book out that was a foodie and comedy book, I was very keen to read it. Here are my thoughts on it.

Description:

Born with a silver spoon in her mouth, Manhattan upper-cruster Cecily Sinclair now uses that pricey utensil to dish up fancy French fare on her cooking show, Serving Romance. When there’s an executive shake-up at the network, she’s not worried. Not much anyway. Her show’s a hit after all. Why would the new CEO want to mess with success?

The Butterfly Code – Book Review

 

 

The Butterfly Code by Sue Wyshynski

Dr. Hunter Cayman is in charge of Phoenix Research Lab located just outside of the small town of Deep Cove. He is mysterious and sexy and everyone around her is warning her off.

“For a doctor in charge of a research facility, he’s young. Late twenties, maybe. His dark gray T-shirt stretches across his muscular chest. His thumbs are hooked into the pockets of his well-fitting jeans, and his strong forearms are bare to the relentless drizzle. In fact, he seems to enjoy the misty wetness. Like he’s in his element.”

Throwback Thursday: Lady Midnight – Book Review

 

Throwback Thursday is a series where we take a look back at some of ARR’s most popular posts. Enjoy!

Wow. Lady Midnight broke my heart over and over and over and I
couldn’t even have time to breathe.

If you’re a fan of the Shadowhunter Chronicles, you’ll most definitely
not be disappointed! Like I said, Lady Midnight has taken a new plot
that I really didn’t expect. In my opinion, I’m currently liking it
better than The Infernal Devices or The Mortal Instruments, which is saying something, because a) TID is basically my life (because Will
and Jem, duh) and b) Because The Dark Artifices has only one book
released as of yet, and I’m already loving it more than all the other
previous series.

Blurb:

Marie Carrington is broke, desperate, and hoping to find sanctuary on Prince Edward Island while decorating a renovated bed-and-breakfast. Seth Sloane moved three thousand miles to help restore his uncle’s Victorian B and B–and to forget about the fiancée who broke his heart.

He wasn’t expecting to have to babysit a woman with a taste for expensive antiques and a bewildering habit of jumping every time he brushes past her. The only thing Marie and Seth agree on is that getting the Red Door Inn ready to open in just two months will take everything they’ve got–and they have to find a way to work together. In the process, they may find something infinitely sweeter than they ever imagined on this island of dreams.
