Susanne Wolff isn't thrilled when her mother sends her all the way across the country to Freiburg to save her uncle's stationery store from bankruptcy. Freiburg is too provincial for her taste, and besides, pen and paper are outdated anyway. Anja Lamm, Paper Love's only full-time employee, takes an instant dislike to the arrogant, digital-loving snob who's supposed to be her temporary boss. But thanks to a meddling cat, a business trip to a stationery fair, and an armada of origami boats, Anja soon starts to see beneath Susanne's aloof exterior.

I loved the storyline. The transformation from enemy's to friend... well it was so smooth. the supporting characters were amazingly well written. Suzy character was easily hated for a long moment but with an ease Jae brings her close and she just slips right in to your heart. I truly can relate to "her Pen Geek" . Abby Craden does such a great job bringing her Character to life.
I hope there will be a follow up story soon.
This book is such a beautiful heart warming book everyone should give it a read/listen.

A woman who has been missing for three months is found dead with over 200 tally marks carved into her skin. For Detective Amy Sadler, who is still recovering mentally from a past undercover operation gone wrong, the case is as unsettling as it is frustrating. As more bodies appear with the same tally marks, Amy's only solace from the seemingly unsolvable case is the romance blooming between herself and forensic pathologist Dr. Lira Ward, a beautiful soul with a past even she doesn't understand.

I found this book to be quite entertaining, easy to follow and characters you can't help but love. i thought the narrator to be very believable, she made the story of Sarah's life come alive. I also love the paranormal side of this beautiful story. check it out and some of Laceys other titles like Tats.

I loved the book series. I've already read them. so when the audio came out i was excited. well the narration wasn't great but i got use to it. and i am looking forward the the next few books in the series. i had this love hate feeling for Lizzie for a while. but then started to feel bad for her. i know she made mistakes but her friends really never let her live it down.
the book was great and had really loving and believable characters. you will find yourself lost in the lives and dramas. it worth reading for sure.

Engaging is not even the best way to discrible the feel of this story. It felt as if I was there the whole time. Like i was a regular sitting at the end if the bar listening and witnessing all the comings and goings of the townspeople. There was so much passion, and loyalty, new friendships and exciting experiences going on. I knew from the first page i was hooked and was going to be wanting more.
The narration was Brilliant this book could not have had better.
The ending... well lets just say it will make you run and grab the next in the series moments after you finish the last word.
This is definitely A best seller!!!!

ok so book 1 ends on a cliffhanger. yes i was shocked as well. However book 2 brings a lot more attention to the meaning of loyalty, family, and true love. ( still leaves you wanting more)
i have to say for an Armstrong book i found it to be a bit short, comparing to her other novels, but this is where i hope there will be many more visits to Whiskeys Springs.
I was hooked from the very first chapter of the series. I finished them rather fast. so i know i will be visiting them soon.
the characters were loving and so easy to like. the stoy pulled you in and kept the drinks coming so you felt right at home.
This book along with the first one On Tap.. was two of the best Armstrong has written to date.. I truly can not say enough good thgs about the series, so let me say this. The narration was out of this world good. knowing this I'm wondering why you haven't bought your copies yet. you won't regret it!!!

This was a really good book I found the raw emotions from each character to be realistically sound. The story line was easy to follow. It kept me engaged and wanting...like any good read should. I was heartbroken for the MCs and hopeful to the end for their love. It was really heartwarming and I would recommend it to anyone.

Three months have passed since the events of The Wrong Woman. Saskia is now working part-time with Jaiden, who is struggling to hide her feelings for her new friend and coworker. Saskia thought Jaiden was flirting with her when she invited her to work "undercover", and she's frustrated that their private investigations have never wandered even remotely close to the erotic. Neither Jaiden nor Saskia have had much luck with love. But when they finally kiss, it feels different...passionate...and unconditional.

Kate is a rapidly rising star of the trauma therapy world - London based, shy, uptight, and with an air of aloofness that masks a deep sense of insecurity. When she has to relocate her "Traumatology for the 21st Century" conference to Horton Hill "Deluxe" Hotel and Conference Centre in the heart of industrial West Yorkshire, she is understandably horrified by the state of the place.
