Book Review-Other People’s Things by Kerry Anne King

On the blog today I am EXCITED to bring you my review for Other People’s Things by Kerry Anne King for Suzy Approved Book Tours!

Release Date: September 21, 2021

About The Book:

From the Amazon Charts bestselling author of Whisper Me This comes a witty, magical story about improbable connections, difficult gifts, and the unexpected events that heal us and bring us together.

Jailbird. Klepto. Spectacular failure to launch. Nicole Wood’s sticky fingers have earned her many names, but it’s not that she’s stealing―some objects just need to be moved elsewhere, and the universe has chosen her to do it. Still, being a relocator of objects isn’t easy. With her marriage on the rocks, no real-world skills, and the threat of prison hanging over her head, Nicole is determined to change her ways.

Things seem to be looking up, thanks to a godsent job with her sister’s housecleaning business―until she encounters a seemingly harmless paperback that insists on moving from one client’s home to another’s. Nicole hopes no one will notice, but the action stirs up long-hidden secrets and triggers a series of fateful events that threatens to destroy the life she’s creating and hurt those closest to her. She’ll need to embrace her unwieldy gift and take a chance on love in order to unravel the mystery and fix what’s gone wrong.

Miss W’s Review:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Other People’s Things by Kerry Anne King is a wonderful book with such a unique premise.
Nicole is someone that has been called a thief but truly she believes she is relocating items.
This book was very hard to put down and has a bit of everything. A contemporary fiction with romance and magical realism, which I LOVED!

There are multiple story lines that are expertly woven together. But lets not forget the twists and turns. I really loved Nicole, she was well written, fleshed out, complicated and flawed. I really loved this story and highly recommend it.

In the winter of 2014, Perdita, bi and proud in Chicago, is weeks away from turning seventeen. She loves her two moms, but why won’t they talk about her adoption? When Perdita meets improv performer Fenton, she discovers both a kindred soul and a willing accomplice in her search for the truth. Will Perdita find what she’s looking for? 

Miss W’s Review:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Two Winter’s is a retelling of Shakespeare “A Winters Tale”

The story is told through multiple timelines, 1997 where Mia is pregnant and then 17 years later when Mia’s daughter is 17 years old. I enjoyed this story telling. The characters were well written and I enjoyed the nod to the original story.

This was a great retelling of the story and having read the classic, this adaption was really a great take. The plot was nicely paced and well thought out.

Book Review- The Magic of Found Objects by Maddie Dawson

I am thrilled to bring you my review for The Magic of Found Objects by Maddie Dawson for book blogger tour for Suzy Approved Book Tours!

About the Book:

Release Date: 8/1/2021

From the bestselling author of Matchmaking for Beginners comes a feel-good story about becoming who you were meant to be all along.

Phronsie Linnelle was conceived at Woodstock in a serendipitous liaison between a free-spirited hippie and a farmer’s son and was born with magical wonder flickering in her DNA and rationality knit into her bones. All her life she’s been torn between the two. But now that she’s been betrayed by both love and the mother she once idolized, her rational side is winning.

So when her best friend from childhood proposes that they give up on romance and marry each other, Phronsie agrees. Who better to spend your life with than your best friend? Maybe the connection they already have is love. Maybe there’s no falling to be done. But immediately after they announce their engagement, she encounters someone who makes a very charming and compelling argument for revisiting romance.

While her even-keeled stepmother argues for the safety that comes with her new engagement and her mother relays messages from the universe to hold out for true love, Phronsie must look to her own heart to find the answers that have been there all along.

Miss W’s Review:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

The Magic of Found Objects by Maddie Dawson is a FANTASTIC read. Phronsie Linnelle is the main character and I know what its like to have a different name (Wilfrieda here). You always here the story of if you and your bestie both reach a certain age and your not married you will marry each other. Well this is a fantastic twist on that story. When Phronsie’s bestie proposes that they do exactly that, she’s all in. They agree there won’t be love, but she’s okay with the deep connection they already have. After she has announced her engagement, someone pops into her life that may put a wrench into things, maybe real romance? This was such a well written novel. The characters are well developed, fleshed out, flawed and simply embraceable. This story is about more than just love and romance. It is about family and family drama and how Phronsie came to be and how she has dealt with that her whole life. A wonderful womens fiction novel with elements of family, friends, love and romance. I cannot recommend this book enough!

Miss W’s Review:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

I have read (devoured) all of Jill Shalvis’s Wildstone series and Love for Beginners was totally my favorite! This is book 7 in the series but all books are wonderful stand alone stories.

We meet Emma who wakes up from a coma to discover her fiancé has left her for her best friend. But that’s not even enough because she has to live with them. I mean you just got out of a coma, where would you go? What would you do?

Then we meet Emma’s physical therapist Simon and I absolutely loved the chemistry between these two. Next level snark, yes please!

The characters had such a great chemistry and the story was well written. I had such a hard time putting this book down. It was such a joy to read such a wonderful story!

I highly recommend this book !

About The Book:

Georgia, 1968 – Margaret Rose McCutcheon has just buried her husband and must now name a beneficiary for their estate in case of her demise. She is hard-pressed to do so because there is no one. No children. No family. At least none to speak of. At one time, she had two sisters and six brothers, but the lot of them were scattered to the four winds, with no one knowing where the others went. In the hope of finding at least one of her siblings, Margaret hires a detective and sets off on a journey to uncover the truth of why the family broke apart as it did. 

West Virginia, 1901 – When Eliza Hobbs gives birth to her sixth child, her husband is not there to welcome his daughter into the world. No surprise, because Martin is seldom there. He works in Charleston and returns to Coal Creek only when he has a mind to. Yes, he sends money on occasion, but seldom enough to make ends meet. Although Eliza believes each new child a blessing, he sees them as yet another responsibility on his already overloaded shoulders. When he discovers another child is on the way, he demands she get rid of it. he stops returning home and there is no more money. 

Left with the children, a mountainside patch of land, and a house in sorry need of repair, Eliza seeks help and turns to someone powerful enough to hold sway over Martin and force him into providing for his family. Pushed to the brink, Martin does something unforgivable and the family is forever torn apart.

Now, after all these years, will Margaret be the one to find the pieces of her broken family?

Miss W’s Review:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

When I Last Saw You by Bette Lee Crosby is a poignant and heartwarming story with endearing characters that I instantly fell in love with. I was so surprised to find out that the novel was based on a true story!

I was captured instantly by the first chapter until the very last chapter. There were a few surprises that I honestly didn’t see coming. Bette Lee Crosby is an incredible story teller.

My heart was broken in parts of this family drama. I absolutely loved Eliza’s characters who was complex, flawed, intuitive and well fleshed out.

The family dynamics , secrets, friendships and romance tell of a perfectly imperfect family.

The story is told in two timelines, both in the past.

I cannot recommend this book enough!

Book Review- Ruby Falls by Deborah Goodrich Royce

I am thrilled to be participating with the book blog tour for Suzy Approved Book Tours.

Ruby Falls by Deborah Goodrich Royce

Release Date: May 4, 2021

About The Book:

Like the chilling psychological thriller The Silent Patient, Deborah Goodrich Royce’s Ruby Falls is a nail-biting tale of a fragile young actress, the new husband she barely knows, and her growing suspicion that the secrets he harbors may eclipse her own.

On a brilliantly sunny July day, six-year-old Ruby is abandoned by her father in the suffocating dark of a Tennessee cave. Twenty years later, transformed into soap opera star Eleanor Russell, she is fired under dubious circumstances. Fleeing to Europe, she marries a glamorous stranger named Orlando Montague and keeps her past closely hidden.

Together, Eleanor and Orlando start afresh in LA. Setting up house in a storybook cottage in the Hollywood Hills, Eleanor is cast in a dream role—the lead in a remake of Rebecca. As she immerses herself in that eerie gothic tale, Orlando’s personality changes, ghosts of her past re- emerge, and Eleanor fears she is not the only person in her marriage with a secret.

In this thrilling and twisty homage to Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca, the story ricochets through the streets of Los Angeles, a dangerous marriage to an exotic stranger, and the mind of a young woman whose past may not release her.

Miss W’s Review:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Ruby Falls by Deborah Goodrich Royce is a captivating and mesmerizing book that I loved.

I really loved Ruby’s story and how it was revealed layer by layer.
The descriptions were so detailed I felt as if I was in that very place.
I felt all the feelings the characters were feeling.
The characters were well written, complex, flawed and well fleshed out.

This story is a thriller but a mystery all wrapped into one. The time period of 1987 is so well written and the references to the pop culture at that time are spot on . I LOVE that the main character is a former SOAP start. I enjoy how the author draws on her own experiences to enhance the authenticity of the character and the story.

The main time period setting of 1987 is so well referenced in the book with movies and music. Our main character is even an ex- daytime soap opera star.

There are quite a few twists and turns that kept me on the edge of my seat. This book was so hard to put down.

I HIGHLY recommend it!

About The Author:

Deborah Goodrich Royce’s first novel, Finding Mrs. Ford, debuted in 2019 to rave reviews. She divides her time between the Northeast and Florida, where she writes, reads, watches a lot of movies, and spends time with her family.

Deborah serves on the governing and/or advisory boards of the Avon Theatre, the American Film Institute, New York Botanical Garden, the Greenwich International Film Festival, the Greenwich Historical Society, the Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach, the Preservation Society of Newport, and the PRASAD Project. She and her husband have restored more buildings than she can count, including the Ocean House Hotel, and the Deer Mountain Inn.

Deborah holds a BA in French and Italian from Lake Erie College and an honorary doctorate from the same institution. In an earlier life, she was an actress in film and television and a story editor for Miramax Films. Ruby Falls is her second psychological thriller, and she owes a debt of gratitude for its inspiration to Daphne du Maurier and Alfred Hitchcock.https://deborahgoodrichroyce.com/

Book Review- For All She Knows by Jamie Beck

About the Book:

Release Date: March 30, 2021

Montlake Publishers

Two mothers face the consequences of their choices in a gripping novel about friendship, family, and forgiveness by Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author Jamie Beck.

Grace first met Mimi when she blew into their sons’ toddler playgroup like a warm bay breeze that loosened Grace’s tight spaces. Despite differing approaches to life and parenting, the fast friends raised their kids together while cementing a sisterlike bond that neither believed could be broken. But when a string of ill-fated decisions results in a teen party with a tragic outcome for Grace’s son, the friendship is ripped apart and an already-splintered community explodes.

Accusations are leveled, litigation ensues, and the people of Potomac Point take sides, all of which threatens Mimi’s business and her current custody agreement. Her sole salvation is a young cop who just might be her second chance at love. That fact only antagonizes Grace, whose marriage is crumbling beneath the weight of blame and the echo of past mistakes.

With their lives unraveling, the former friends stand to lose everything they love unless they learn to forgive—both themselves and each other.

Miss W’s Review:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

For All She Knows by Jamie Beck is the third book in the Potomac Point Women’s Fiction Series.


This is a wonderful book that can definitely be read as a stand alone novel.

This novel is an emotional, poignant story of family, love, parenthood, and friendship in and out of marriage. At the core of the story is family and how they cope during traumatic events.

The story is told in two different perspectives, which worked really well for this story.
The characters were complex, well developed and complicated.

The author did a fantastic job at addressing the difficult topics of teen drinking and bullying.

I really enjoyed this book . Another 5 star read from Jamie Beck!
