What a great and different genre of books I’ve read during the month of September. These days while I try to write, work and take care of the family, I don’t have as much time to read. So I’m happy that the few books I got my hands on in September were good ones. Wouldn’t it be great if there was an extra day of the week dedicated only to reading?
The Runaway Countess by Leigh LaValle. (Regency Romance) I love a good historical romance and this one didn’t disappoint. With a Robin Hood story line, it had a bit of mystery, a pinch of action and of course—romance. I’m ready to read book two in this series.
The Things We Leave Unsaid by Megan Mayfair. (Women’s Fiction) This is Megan’s debut book and what a great job she’s done. It follows the lives of two women who meet in a coffee shop. There’s family drama, personal struggles and it’s written in a way that pulls the heart strings.
Beneath This Mask by Meghan March. (Hot Contemporary Romance) This book is a bit of a darker read. After Charlie’s father has been sent to jail, she’s gone into hiding and covers herself with tattoos. She also holds the proof she needs to either follow her father’s footsteps and end up in jail, or clear her name. The opening scene drew me in straight away and I liked how it was more a bad girl with a good guy. It’s usually the other way around.
Moonglow by Kristen Callihan. Book 2 in the Darkest London Series. (Historical Romance) Although this book is historical, it’s filled with mystery, murder and werewolves which gives the genre a pretty cool twist. Daisy is newly widowed and hoping to enjoy the freedom of not being tired down to a dreadful husband. But she’s being stalked and almost killed by a predator and needs the help of the Marquis of Northrup who’s hiding his own secrets from London Society.
