Coming Attractions & Giveaway


Does anyone else feel like May passed in the blink of an eye? I sure do! Of course, the fact that I spent the month packing, moving, unpacking, and settling into my new home (still working on that) might have something to do with it. I'm dreadfully behind on my reading (but working diligently on catching up) so you might see some schedule changes as June progresses. I'll do my best to keep you all up to date on what's happening. And, hopefully, by July I'll be back to full speed! :) 

Here's what's on the schedule for June.

We kick things off on Wednesday, June 1 with a review of Unbridled Cowboy by Maisey Yates. This deeply emotional, contemporary mail order bride story launches Yates' new Four Corners Ranch series. 

Tuesday, June 2 brings Hellie's Top Dish review of A Proposal They Can't Refuse. This contemporary romance debut knocked Hellie's socks off and her review has me itching to add this one to the top of my TBR list. 

Conflicted is another high octane, romantic suspense thriller from Lori Matthews. I'll be sharing my thoughts about this third book in Matthews' Coast Guard RECON series on Sunday, June 5.

It's historical romance - and danger - in Anabelle Bryant's The Lady Loves Danger. Stop by on Tuesday, June 14 to read my review of this second book in Bryant's Maidens of Mayhem series. 

A Caribbean Heiress in Paris is one of my most anticipated books this summer. Stop by Thursday, June 30 when I share my thoughts about this diverse historical romance...set in 1889 Paris! 

Hellie takes us to Italy's Amalfi Coast with her review of It Takes a Villa by Kilby Blades. Join us on Wednesday, June 8 for this TLC blog tour review stop. 

Join us Thursday, June 9 for my review of The Last Mile by Kat Martin. This new romantic suspense story takes readers along on a danger-filled treasure hunt that keeps you on the edge of your seat.

Mark your calendars for Thursday, June 16. You'll want to be here for my review of Never a Duke, the final book in Grace Burrowes' Rogues to Riches series and a fantastic giveaway from the book's publisher, Forever. 

Wednesday, June 15
brings another tour review. This time, it's Never Cross a Highlander by Lisa Rayne. Join us when I share my thoughts about this historical romance touted as a "
historical mash-up of Dirty Harry in a kilt with Mr. and Mrs. Smith." NOTE: Publication (and review) of this book has moved to December, 2022. 

It's always cause for celebration in my house when Kate Meader releases a new book. Join us on Friday, June 17 when I share my thoughts about Jock Wanted, the latest installment in Meader's Rookie Rebels series. 

If you're a Hallmark movie fan (I am!), be sure to join us on Monday, June 20 when I review As Seen on TV by Meredith Schorr. This charming rom-com had me smiling from beginning to end.

Tuesday, June 21 brings a review of Fake It Till You Bake It by Jamie Wesley. An out-of-favor reality contestant and a cupcake-baking professional football player? Is it any wonder this book was on my most anticipated list for summer? 

Nancy joins us Thursday, June 23 with a review of Here for the Drama by Kate Bromley. If you enjoy England, and the theater, you'll want to check out Nancy's thoughts about this new novel.

Stop by Monday, June 27 for my review of Sea Glass Summer by Miranda Liasson. This second book is Liasson's Seashell Harbor series features single mom Kit, her young son Ollie and an unexpected chance at romance...with her late husband's best friend. 

On Tuesday, June 28, I'll be sharing my thoughts about The Accidental Newlywed Game by Jaci Burton. This third book in Burton's Boots and Bouquets series features the pairing I've been anticipating since book one. 

Wrapping up the month on Wednesday, June 29 is a review of The Lost and Found Girl by Maisey Yates, a women's fiction novel featuring sisters, secrets, and how far people will go to protect someone they love. 

As I mentioned in the intro, this month's schedule is fluid so be sure to check back periodically for updates.

  1. I'm definitely looking forward to the new Grace Burrowes book (among others). I just got laid off so maybe i can spend more time reading!!

    1. I'm so sorry about the layoff but yay for more reading time! :)

  2. Great set there! I'm looking forward to Maisey Yates ones. Can't wait for the reviews on them.

  3. The lost and found girl interests me greatly. Summer is my favorite season. I enjoy everything about it. Watermelon, the heat and beauty.

  4. A Caribbean Heiress in Paris and the Maisie Yates books look lovely. No vacation plans but I would love a beach vacation. June is perfect. Walks early and late, long days and balmy evenings.

  5. I hope your move has been going well! In addition to all the great books listed here, I’m looking forward to the Perfect Crimes of Marian Hayes by Cat Sebastian and How to Fake It In Hollywood by Ava Wilder

  6. I'm currently halfway through my trip with my adult children to visit my family in Georgia. I am hoping that our (forced) bathroom remodel is completed soon especially since my husband stayed home to oversee it while we came out here. Best of luck with the rest of your unpacking!

  7. Glad to hear you are getting settled in and recovering from your move. I get fluid for a schedule. Whatever you have we will be sure to enjoy.
    We are taking a trip to NYC this month. Our granddaughter (and her mom and I) are big Harry Potter fans. She turns 11 this month and since that is the age young wizards get their letter to attend Hogwarts, we are take her to the Potter World play, The Cursed Child, on her birthday. We will take the train up and back from Durham to keep with the theme. We will spend a week and do a bit of site seeing while there. It may be the last time I can travel for a while, so I plan to take full advantage of it.

  8. Too any wishlist books to mention; the Yates books sound good. Having medical issues and tests to take care of and some other issues as well. Hoping to fit in a getaway with another couple. Having a problem trying to log in with google to post. So if this does now work, will just put my name next to this one. Patoct.

  9. Looks like this time I figured it out to post with google. Please enter me in the contest - my anonymous post as Patoct.

  10. A proposal they cant refuse made me think of Sandra Bullock for some reason.
    All the months are flying by; Christmas in July is next

  11. So many good books coming out! I'm anxiously awaiting Darynda Jones new book, Hard Day for a Hangover. I just adore her books.

  12. Lots of great books coming out. Love Kat Martin and Kate Meader cant wait for both of those books.
    Vacation plans are simple this year. We are renting a cabin and hibernating for a week. Relaxing and reading for a week. Cant wait.

  13. I'm going to see my niece, her husband & my great-niece at the end of the month - it's been a while - hope I can join the rest of the family in August for a beach vacation - that's been even a longer while.

  14. I've never heard of a few of these authors so I'm waiting to read your reviews for them but.I'm very excited to read the Miranda Liasson. I hope you are settling in PJ! I agree with you that May flew by. My husband just had shoulder replacement surgery and he sleeps a lot and I've been getting lots of reading done!

  15. No plans right now. I have Miranda Liasson on my must buy list. I also have Fake It Till You Bake It on my list to read.

  16. Lots of good books listed here. I'm excited for a few of them.

  17. Looking forward to the end of school for my youngest.

    Fake it Till You Bake it looks fun.


  18. I am looking forward to spending more time with my son and 8 month old grandson!

  19. As always, you have given me so many good books to "want". I live in Texas and we have been as hot as it normally is in August.. I am looking forward to having a spring....don't care when it gets here, I just want to see it. Thanks for the introductions to all these good books. If I got actual books, the stack would fall over on me, flatten me and my little dog too.
    Hope everyone is happy.
