Almost an Angel

Almost an AngelCarolly Hanson is a angel in training. She must help others to redeem her past life and move to become an angel. So far her experiences have not worked out as well as she hoped, but when she meets James, the Earl of Traynern, Carolly is determined to earn her wings. She will help James find love, she just has to make sure not to fall in love with him.

James Oscar Henry Northram, Earl of Traynern, was riding his horse when he will stumble upon a woman who had been beaten. James will take it upon himself to help this woman but he will quickly find that she is not all that she appears.

Almost an Angel is the second book to the series Regency Rags to Riches by Jade Lee. I liked this story. It was completely different from the first book as that one had spies. This one was on the verge of supernatural with Carolly who was an angel, well an angel in training.

I liked the character of Carolly for the most part. She was training to be angel because in her past life she was a little too selfish. I liked that she was all in with helping, but I felt that her past life was still very relevant. She was still a little selfish and acted out at times, but for the majority of the book she is mending her ways. James character wants to help Carolly but to help her understand that she is not an angel. I liked that although he didn’t believe in Carolly he believed that she was a good person and was falling for her. With everyday that James was by Carolly he was starting to change and so was his niece and household, for the better.

The idea of Carolly being an angel in training was interesting. I liked that she had to work to be an angel. It wasn’t that she was bad in her previous life, just a little too selfish. It was interesting when she starts a new life that she doesn’t always remember her other missions or her original life. Pieces of those past come back to her but it gets scrambled.

Jade Lee will give several surprises that happen more towards the end. There will be a couple surprises that will show how bad one character was but the other surprises bring a happy ending to the story.

I am reading the third and final book to the series next.

Crazy Thing Called Love

Crazy Thing Called LoveMadelyn Cornish has moved on with her life leaving the man she loved who had broken her heart. Now he is back in her life and her feelings are in danger of falling back in love.

Billy Wilkins had ruined the one good thing going on in his life. He will take his second chance because even though fourteen years have past he still loves her.

Crazy Thing Called Love is the third book from the series Crooked Creek Ranch by Molly O’Keefe. This is the first book I have read from the author. I started the book and was intrigued but then I lost interest with the hockey which is a good portion of it at least in the beginning. I am not saying the book wasn’t good because it was, but it was a slow read. Then you get halfway through the book and the characters are more developed, there is more going on and you are getting a better picture of what their lives were like. You feel for Billy as he is trying to get his life together and you feel for Maddy but in the back of my mind I am thinking that she needs to let go of the past and start anew.

I liked the addition of the niece and nephew which brought Billy and Maddy together and a look at what their pasts were like back then.

I think I would be interested in reading more from Molly O’Keefe. Maybe try another one of her series to find out what they are like.

Babycakes

BabycakesKit Bellamy had to start over from scratch thanks to her brother in law and sister as they took the family owned pie shop. Kit moved to a small town and will encounter more than she hoped with new friends, a new way to live and a relationship she didn’t think would happen.

Morgan Westlake was prepared to be an uncle but not a parent of his niece as hers were gone. Morgan will move to a small town where Lilly’s maternal grandmother lived in hopes to give his niece a new way of living away from his stuck up family. Morgan will find his niece growing out of her shell and will also find himself giving into a relationship that will have him falling in love.

Babycakes is the third book from the Cupcake Club series by Donna Kauffman. This is another cute book from the series that is very sweet and full of second chances.

Kit is an enduring character that makes you want to cheer for her to have that happy ending she desires. Her background story is interesting with the betrayal of her sister and her brother in law. Its a slimy move but Kit becomes stronger when she moves to Sugarberry and finds what she was missing. Now Morgan comes from wealth but he does not live with it. I liked that he did not take his family’s money and did not work for them, he went on his own way as a lawyer that did good and not just for money.

The chemistry between the two characters does sizzle as like all of Kauffman’s characters. Things do not heat up until they can trust each other and having Lilly around helps bring them closer a lot quicker.

The fourth book is Honey Pie. I am not sure if this is the last book of the series but it is the last one that is available.
