For the Love of the Bard Book Review:

“Perfect to read on the beach.” –The Boston Globe To go for it or not to go for it? That is the question when two former high school flames return to their Shakespeare-obsessed hometown for a summer of theater and unexpected romance, in a laugh-out-loud rom-com from debut author Jessica Martin. Literary agent and writer Miranda Barnes rolls into her hometown of Bard’s Rest with one goal in mind: to spend the summer finally finishing her YA novel, the next installment in her bestselling fantasy series. Yet Miranda’s mother, deep in the planning stages for the centennial of the town’s beloved annual Shakespeare festival, has other ideas. Before you can say “all’s fair in love and war,” Miranda is cornered into directing Twelfth Night—while simultaneously scrambling to finish her book, navigating a family health scare, and doing her best to avoid the guy who broke her heart on prom night. When it comes to Adam, the veterinarian with a talent for set design and an infuriating knack for winning over Miranda’s dog, the lady doth protest too much. As any Shakespeare lovers knows, the course of true love never did run smooth, and soon Miranda realizes she’ll have to decide whether to trust Adam with her heart again.

The Second Life of Samuel Tyne Book Review:

Samuel Tyne always believed he was destined for greatness. Emigrating to Canada from Ghana in the 1960'S was the first step on this path, but fifteen years later his grand plans have stalled. He now has a wife Maud, twin thirteen year old daughters Chloe and Yvette, and a mind-numbing job. But then he is thrown a life line. His uncle Jacob dies, leaving him a grand but crumbling house in the town of Aster, and Samuel persuades his reluctant family to seize this chance for a new beginning. At first Aster seems perfect, but soon the town's faultlines are revealed, and the family begins to feel the strain. Samuel opens an electrical shop, but the business falters as he falls victim to his own outlandish ambitions, trying to build computers when all the townspeople want is lightbulbs and radios. His wife is unhappy, and as for his daughters - they are drifting into a private world of two, their behaviour becoming ever more sinister and disturbing to everyone around them. When their school friend Ama comes to stay and nearly drowns in mysterious circumstances, and then a series of fires around the town go unexplained, Samuel and Maud must face up to the secrets within their own family, secrets that threaten to completely tear apart the life they have built.

Only Him Book Review:

He was my first crush, my first kiss, my first everything. But I'm not a lovesick teenager anymore, and I'd never let that cocky troublemaker break my heart again. So when he shows up out of the blue asking me to have dinner with him "for old time's sake," I say I will. After all, it's been twelve years, and I'm stronger and smarter than I was back then. Except...he still does something to me. He's got those eyes that make me weak, those hands that drive me wild, and a body I can't resist-especially once I see the tattoos. It doesn't take long for our trip down memory lane to go from sweet to sizzling. We're just as good together as we were back then-better, even-and I'm willing to give the only man I've ever loved another chance. But he's got to tell me the truth. * * * All I wanted was to see her again. Tell her I'm sorry. Make her smile. Okay, that's a lie. I wanted to do more than that-a lot more. But I know she's better off without me, and I promised myself I'd behave. Except I've never been much good at keeping promises...or my hands to myself when I'm around her. I can make her laugh, I can make her cry, I can make her body surrender to mine in ways that neither of us could have imagined back then. I can-and I do-love her more than she'll ever know. But I can't tell her the real reason why I'm here. And I can't stay.

Into the Sunset Book Review:

Ben I know why I lost her. I was too serious, I was too practical. I was too busy thinking I knew what she wanted without asking her. Over time, this wore on her. All she wanted was to be heard. She wanted someone to support her big exciting ideas, I was supposed to do that, but I shut them down. No wonder she handed me my ring back and left town. No wonder she married someone else, leaving me with memories of sunsets at the beach and the future I had planned for us. I went on and built my life without her. My father and I opened the second division of Sunset Builders in Las Vegas, and to my surprise, I stayed busy, almost busy enough not to notice the loneliness. That was until one day I was called to do a quick bathroom and kitchen remodel for a woman who lived on Las Vegas Boulevard. I shouldn't of gone, I should have sent one of my men because when I arrived, and the door opened, every memory I'd had of Jessica came flooding back. If I'd learned anything in her absence it was that anything worth doing was worth being done well, and anything worth having was worth fighting for. I just hoped she'd give me a second chance. Jessica Ben had always been right to keep me grounded. I should've listened because the falls didn't hurt as bad that way. I wanted a bigger life, in a bigger brighter place. I never appreciated the beauty of living in a small town with a huge support system. Instead, I left town without so much as a goodbye, chasing a silly dream. I married the man who promised me the sun, moon, and the stars, but delivered blinding blows. I spent years hiding in the dark so that no one would see my bruised face. Most days, I thought I'd die before I escaped the nightmare. I dreamed of running, it was my only way out. Then I got news my grandfather had passed. He left me money and a gorgeous condo in Vegas. I had a plan. I would upgrade the condo, sell it, and fade away into the sunset, all while my husband was gone on a business trip. Little did I know that Ben would show up on my doorstep. He swore we could make our dreams real, but this time I was the grounded one. I could only see how we would never work. I'd made too many mistakes and love was terrifying.

Sunsets and Somedays Book Review:

Ben I know why I lost her. I was too serious. I was too practical. I was grounded when I should've been dreaming about forever with Jess. Over time, this wore on her, all her big exciting ideas and all the ways I shut them down. No wonder she handed me my ring back and left town. No wonder she hadn't been back in ten years. No wonder she'd married someone else, leaving me with memories of sunsets at the beach and the somedays we planned for the future we'd never live. So, I built a lift without her. My father and I opened the second division of Sunset Builders in New York, and to my surprise, I stayed busy, almost busy enough not to notice the loneliness. While I was on a job site, my little sister booked an appointment with a woman who lived on Madison Avenue. A quick bathroom and kitchen remodel, she'd said. I should have asked more questions because when I arrived and the door opened memories came flooding back. Jessica had returned. If I'd learned anything in her absence it was that anything worth doing was worth being done well, and anything worth having was worth fighting for. Maybe by the time the condo was done, Jessica would give me a second chance. Jessica All those years ago, Ben had been right to try to keep me grounded. I should've listened. The falls didn't hurt as bad that way. Instead, I wanted a bigger life in a bigger place and I never appreciated the beauty of living in a small town with a huge support system. So, I left town without so much as a goodbye chasing a silly dream. I alienated myself, moved to a strange city where I knew no one, and chased after something that took me down a dark path. I married the man who promised me the sun, moon, and stars, but delivered blinding blows. Sometimes, I thought I'd die before I escaped the nightmare. I knew my only way out would be to run...again. This took more years than I could count. Years of me squirreling away money, and years of me hiding in the dark so that no one would see my bruised face in the light of day. Then my grandfather died. He left me money and a gorgeous condo in New York. While my husband was away on a month-long trip, my best friend drove me to New York. My plan: to upgrade the condo, sell it, and leave my current life behind. Little did I know when I had called contractors to get some quotes that Ben would show up on my doorstep. He swore we could make more dreams real, but this time I was the grounded one. This time, I could only see how it would never work. I'd made too many mistakes. Love was terrifying. And I never wanted to tie myself to anyone ever again. After all, 425 Madison is the perfect place to fall in love.
