Add Romance And Mix by Shannon M Harris

Instead she spends her time flipping houses and baking treats for all of her neighbors. Well, almost all of

My Lady Lipstick by Karin Kallmaker

My Lady Lipstick by Karin Kallmaker is a wonderfully written romance with a really cool storyline. Paris Ellison is hiding from the world. She has carved out a comfortable, safe place for herself as an author.

Emily Desjardins has a goal: some day she’s going to be the executive chef at

Perfect Pairing by Rachel Spangler: Book Review

Perfect Pairing by Rachel Spangler had me sold as soon as I heard one of the protagonists owns a food truck.
