Coming Attractions



October has arrived! Crisp days, colored leaves, weekend football, caramel apples, and cozy nights with a great book. Here's what's happening at the blog this month. Is it any wonder it's my favorite month of the year?

It's beginning to look like Christmas around here with my review of Debbie Mason's Christmas on Reindeer Road on Friday, October 2. Filled with Mason's signature humor and heart, this new release is sure to put you in a holiday frame of mind.

Monday, October 5
 brings another holiday story with my review of Karen Schaler's Christmas Ever After
This romantic comedy is filled to the brim with humor, a heroine who hasn't celebrated Christmas since she was eight, a hero whose family is all about Christmas - and then some - and a dog who steals the show. 

Stop by Tuesday, October 6 for my tour review of Never Let Me Go by Kianna Alexander. This third story in Alexander's Southern Gentlemen series focuses on a workaholic single dad whose life is suddenly turned upside down and the career-minded nanny who comes to his more ways than one. 

Kimberly Kincaid
's The Rookie is the subject of my tour review on Wednesday, October 7. This extended-length novella, which kicks off a new series for Kincaid, is filled with sizzle, suspense, and a whole lot of heart. 

Thursday, October 8 brings Hellie's review of A Most English Princess by Clare McHugh. Stop by to read Hellie's thoughts on this new historical fiction novel about the life of Britain's Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, "Princess Vicky."


Kaylene Winter
will be in our spotlight on Monday, October 12 when I share our Q&A along with my thoughts on Endless and Limitless, the first two books of Winter's Less Than Zero Rockstar Romance debut series. If you've ever had a crush on a rock star you'll have no trouble losing yourself in these stories.

We're back on the Christmas trail on Tuesday, October 13 when I share my thoughts on Susan Sands' newest novel: Noel, Alabama. This second-chance romance takes readers back to Sand's small town that's filled with quirky characters, heart-felt romance, Southern hospitality, and overflowing with holiday spirit.

Join me on Thursday, October 15 when I share my thoughts about The Magic of Christmas, a sweet, enemies-to-lovers, holiday romance by Christi Barth, set at a Christmas-themed resort in New England. This one will have you reaching for a mug of hot chocolate and a peppermint candy cane.

You do not want to miss the special treat I have in store for you on Friday, October 16! Forever Romance has some wonderful holiday romances in the queue this year. Stop by for a preview of their upcoming titles and an amazing giveaway.

Thursday, October 22 bring my review of Autumn Skies, the final book in Denise Hunter's heartwarming Bluebell Inn trilogy. Youngest sibling Grace finds both her life partner and her purpose in life in this emotional, faith-affirming romance set in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina. 

Stop by Tuesday, October 27 for my review of Lenora Bell's delightful Love is a Rogue. This historical romance launches Bell's new Wallflowers vs Rogues series with panache. 

The authors of the Trick or Treat at Caynham Castle anthology visit with us on Wednesday, October 28. Stop by for some spooky good fun!

On Thursday, October 29, I'm rounding out the month the way it began, with another Christmas romance. Swing by to check out my review of The Cowboy Who Saved Christmas, a holiday anthology by western romance favorites, Jodi Thomas, Sharla Lovelace, and Scarlett Dunn.

What's on your most anticipated list this month? 

I have a print copy of Alexis Daria's You Had Me at Hola for one randomly chosen person who comments before 11:00 PM, October 5, 2020.

  1. Wow, a lot of good sounding contemps, have to add them to my list.

  2. I love anthologies so The Cowboy Who Saved Christmas and Trick or Treat at Caynham Castle are on my wish list. I am looking forward to all the wonderful Christmas books due out this year. I look forward to Autumn Skies and the completion of this series. A Most English Princess and Love is a Rogue would satisfy my love of historicals.
    Enjoy the Fall. Stay safe and healthy.

  3. This is a great sounding list of books! I really enjoy Christmas romances. I already have a mile long wish list and it's just gotten longer! Thanks for the chance to win.

  4. I am really drawn to the Christmas books right now.

  5. Can't believe we're into reading Christmas themed books already! Where did the time go? I see a couple of good sounding historical romances in the bunch of books for this month. Looking forward to reading more about those.

  6. I'm looking forward to the historicals as they're my favorite genre to read. I don't really care for contemporary romance, so there's no need to enter me into the contest.

  7. I've been counting the days until Lenora Bell's book comes out! Anna Harrington and Eloisa James both have novellas coming out this month!

  8. Looking forward to Love is a Rogue!

  9. I am looking forward to The Christmas Table by Donna VanLiere, Autumn Skies by Denise Hunter, and Jingle All The Way by Debbie Macomber.

  10. WOW! You have given me a great deal to consider. I am a sucker for Christmas stories. I read them all year long because it is a good way for me to cheer myself.

    The entire list has books which interest me. But, I think after the Christmas books, I would like to read A Most English Princess. Victoria's children and grandchildren fascinate me.

    Thanks for the list of wonderful books. I hope everyone is taking care and staying well.

  11. Hmmm, so many wonderful Christmas stories that I am anticipating. Susan Mallery's Happily This Christmas or One Charmed Christmas by Sheila Roberts. But some of these will be sneaking onto my TBR for sure.

  12. Give me all the Christmas books!


  13. I'm so excited for the Christmas story season. I love holiday reads, especially from favorite characters.
    The Rookie looks good. Thanks for the new books to look forward to. It's my bday this month and always get gift cards and spend on my books.

  14. I can't wait for Lenora's book!! Although a couple of these books are on my kindle.
