April turned out to be a pretty slow reading month for me…I need to pick up the pace if I want to make my goal for the year! Here’s what I read last month:
15. Going, Going Ganache by Jenn McKinlay (e-book)
Another fabulous installment in the Cupcake Bakery series! I read this in just a few days (hours really considering I read an hour at lunch daily). The premise of the book was super fun and interesting…had no idea of “who dun it” and didn’t even make the connection until the main character did. That usually happens for me though! I thought Tate’s development regarding his business life was superb and the relationship stuff with Melanie & Joe and Melanie & the detective was excellent. I’m excited for the next book to see which way things go. There was a snippet at the end of this book but none related to who Melanie chooses.
16. 74 Seaside Avenue by Debbie Macomber (paperback)
This book focuses on Teri Polgar, the hair stylist from Get Nailed, and her new husband international chess player, Bobby Polgar. Bobby has given up playing chess to avoid another chess player and some drama ensues around that. The book also catches up with several other Cedar Cove residents. Another great entry into the series. I still need to read 5 more books before the series starts airing on The Hallmark Channel in late July!
17. Pies and Prejudice by Ellery Adams (e-book)
First in the Charmed Pie Shoppe series. This book took me several weeks to get through. It wasn’t bad but maybe what I wasn’t expecting? I bought it because I really like Ms. Adams other several about the writer’s group. There were hints of magic which it tells right in the book synopsis but the book didn’t really address it til 50-60% in which frustrated me. I guess it was being built up to? I like a faster pace book. I did like a lot of the characters but have not decided if I should read book #2 yet when I have so many other great series I need to catch up on.
Right now I’m reading:
Sweet Tea Revenge by Laura Childs
Holiday Grind by Cleo Coyle
