Merry Knight is pretty busy these days. She's taking care of her family, baking cookies, decorating for the holidays, and hoping to stay out of the crosshairs of her stressed and by-the-book boss at the consulting firm where she temps. Her own social life is the last thing she has in mind, much less a man. Without her knowledge, Merry's well-meaning mom and brother create an online dating profile for her - minus her photo - and the matches start rolling in. Initially, Merry is incredulous, but she reluctantly decides to give it a whirl.

Despite my average ratings, I really liked this book and would read it again. It’s such a cute, heartwarming holiday story that I would recommend for anyone looking for a short, clean Christmas romance. Despite what other reviews might say, I thought the narrator did a good job with the story and I would listen to her again.

Kat MacTaggart is a girl who has a plan for everything - including her holiday ski trip to Monterra with her best friend. Everything is going according to plan until she finds herself careening out of control down a mountainside and being rescued by a guy who looks like Superman's hotter Italian cousin. HRH Prince Nico is intrigued by the woman he saved on the slopes and her refusal to date him. He offers Kat a deal - let him show her his country and he'll pay her to write articles that will help Monterra's tourism industry.

I don’t care what anyone else says, I loved Royal Date and fell in love. Nico charmed me even after I thought he was a total flirt who didn’t know how to take a hint. ;) Kat is good for him, and I totally fell in love with Serafina. It’s a cute, feel good fairy tale for anyone who loves such a story. I’ll be reading Lemon’s story next.

After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: his sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man.

For readers who appreciate and love the intricate story telling of JK Rowling and the mystery and suspense following Eve Dallas in Nora Roberts’ In Death series, Cormoran Stryke and Robin Ellacott are a must. The two are a fantastic duo that keep the pages turning - they’re really fun to get to know. Read The Cuckoo’s Calling, you’ll enjoy it.
