Hope Harbor Police Chief Lexie Graham has plenty on her plate raising her son alone and dealing with a sudden rash of petty theft and vandalism in her coastal Oregon hometown. As a result, she has zero time for extracurricular activities - including romance. Ex-con Adam Stone isn't looking for love either - but how ironic is it that the first woman to catch his eye is a police chief? Yet wishing for things that can never be is foolish.

Libby Morgan never wanted to return to Lancaster County. She'd made her own life in the city as a news photographer, leaving the slow pace of Amish country behind. She'd left love behind, too, when she fled the old-fashioned ways of Adam Byler. But when a friend in trouble beckons, Libby knows she has no choice. What she doesn't know is that something sinister awaits her.

Couldn't give this any less than fives across the board. Love Perry's approach to story and particularly enjoy the characters she created in this series. Even though I enjoy stories set among the Amish, they aren't always my favorite. Perry's "Danger in Plain Sight" and it's companion novels were reads I couldn't put down. Only wish the entire series was available in audiobook since my commute provides the perfect time to enjoy a good book. Highly recommend as Perry delivers! Plummer's narration is flawless, as always.

Paige Spears was on her way to a job interview when she first met Diane Hunt. The two of them made friendly conversation while waiting for their breakfast, and Diane ended up asking Paige to come work for her for the summer. Paige was reluctant about beginning her corporate career anyway, so she jumped at Diane's offer. As luck would have it, her first assignment was to spend a week in Myrtle Beach with Diane and her family.

A wonderful introduction to the Hunt Family series, Meet Me in Myrtle Beach is a lovely, clean read for those who enjoy romance. The range of ages among the characters, as well as the intentions behind their actions, makes this a fun read for any age even though the protagonist is a young adult. I'm particularly fond of first-person narratives and St. James writes well in this point of view. Rudd's narration is appropriate and enjoyable. Short reads have their place, but this was delightful and I found myself wanting more...guess that works well for St. James introduction to a series, huh? Definitely recommend!

What did you love best about The Diva Cooks a Goose?

A cozy mystery with fun, plausible characters make Krista Davis' "Domestic Diva" series a joy to read. This Christmas-themed volume is a particularly enjoyable read.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Love the twist at the end; wasn't able to predict whodunit and that adds greater delight!

What does Hillary Huber bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Huber's narration is the perfect voice for Davis' first person novel. Huber's portrayal of Sophie is charming.

The second novel in the Hope Harbor series is a sweet tale of finding love and happiness through letting go of preconceived notions of who we should be and what we should do. In classic Hannon style, the characters are richly developed with easily relatable flaws. I find Hannon's work a comforting read that I can enjoy again and again!

Come home to Hope Harbor - where hearts heal...and love blooms. Tracy Campbell never wanted to leave Hope Harbor, Oregon, or the idyllic three-generation cranberry farm where she grew up. But life - and love - altered her plans. Now she's home again - with a floundering farm to run...a tragic secret...and a wounded heart. Romance is not on her agenda. Nor is it on Michael Hunter's. The visitor from Chicago has daunting secrets and devastating regrets of his own.
