When I made the wish, I just wanted a do-over. Another chance to make things right. I never, in a million years, thought it might actually come true...

Sixteen-year-old Ellison Sparks is having a serious case of the Mondays. She gets a ticket for running a red light, she manages to take the world’s worst school picture, she bombs softball try-outs and her class election speech (note to self: never trust a cheerleader when she swears there are no nuts in her bake-sale banana bread), and to top it all off, Tristan, her gorgeous rocker boyfriend suddenly dumps her. For no good reason!

As far as Mondays go, it doesn’t get much worse than this. And Ellie is positive that if she could just do it all over again, she would get it right. So when she wakes up the next morning to find she’s reliving the exact same day, she knows what she has to do: stop her boyfriend from breaking up with her. But it seems no matter how many do-overs she gets or how hard Ellie tries to repair her relationship, Tristan always seems bent set on ending it. Will Ellie ever figure out how to fix this broken day? Or will she be stuck in this nightmare of a Monday forever? 


Wow, I am not sure if I can explain in words how much I loved this book. I have been wanting to check this book out for a while. Once I started reading it yesterday, I wished that I had picked it up sooner than I had. A WEEK OF MONDAYS Is one of those books that once you picked it up, you have almost no chance of putting it back down. That was the dilemma that I came across when I started it last night. It ended with me spending most of today, reading it because I was eager to see how it would end. I can’t even begin to imagine how it must felt to relieve the same day over again, especially Monday for an entire week. Like Ellie I was starting to think that it would never end. I couldn’t help but love Ellie, she’s type of a girl that I would love to be friends with. I couldn’t help but feel sorry for her, for everything that she had deal with, day after day. If I were in her situation, I don’t think I would been able to handle a whole week of it, I would have had breakdown much sooner. To me, Ellie is a survivor, a fighter. I was proud of her, and her accomplishments.

I didn’t like Tristan, I tried to but couldn’t seem to. There were moments that I liked him, back when him and Ellie started dating but he changed. If he cared about her, Ellie wouldn’t have to prove herself every single time, he would love her for who she was. Plus he broke up with her, yet he wasn’t sure why, he just felt that there was something broken that couldn’t be fixed? What kind of excuse is that? I was hoping that Ellie would figure out that Tristan is not the guy that she belongs with. As for Owen, I don’t think that she would have to that realization if it wasn’t for him. You can’t help but love Owen, no matter what was happening and how Ellie was acting, he was always by her side, looking out for her. I still can’t believe she didn’t figure out how he felt about her, even I figured it out. How he acted whenever she brought Tristan up, or how he looked at her, or how he always found a reason to be around her. It’s no wonder they kept fighting, because she always seemed to put Tristan first.

I believe that reason she got someone do over’s was not to get her and Tristan and her back together, but to act like herself and not trying to impress Tristan, because of Owen. I could tell there were few times while Owen and Ellie were hanging out, that she felt something between two of them that wasn’t there before. A spark. I just wish she figured out sooner that she had, that it was Owen she belonged with who loved her for who she was. No matter what she did. I found myself almost jumping with joy when she did. When the two of them kissing, I was smiling. A WEEK OF MONDAYS was unlike any book I read before and I fell in love with first page and it’s why I read it in one day, I couldn’t get enough of story. There were so many times I thought about putting down but I couldn’t and before I realized I had reached the end. A beautiful story about love, friendship and second chances.

Ryder is the hardest Montgomery brother to figure out—with a tough-as-nails outside and possibly nothing too soft underneath. He’s surly and unsociable, but when he straps on a tool belt, no woman can resist his sexy swagger. Except apparently Hope Beaumont, the innkeeper of his own Inn BoonsBoro…

As the former manager of a D.C. hotel, Hope is used to excitement and glamour, but that doesn’t mean she can’t appreciate the joys of small-town living. She’s where she wants to be—except for in her love life. Her only interaction with the opposite sex has been sparring with the infuriating Ryder, who always seems to get under her skin. Still, no one can deny the electricity that crackles between them…a spark that ignited with a New Year’s Eve kiss.

While the Inn is running smoothly, thanks to Hope’s experience and unerring instincts, her big-city past is about to make an unwelcome—and embarrassing—appearance. Seeing Hope vulnerable stirs up Ryder’s emotions and makes him realize that while Hope may not be perfect, she just might be perfect for him… 


Out of all Inn BoonsBoro Trilogy , I think that THE PERFECT HOPE Is my favorite title out of the books and it fits perfectly. I had loved Hope from beginning of the series when she came from DC. Ryder on the other hand, I wasn’t his biggest fan, out of all Montgomery brothers, he seemed to be the most difficult, stubborn one. Not to mention the fact how rude he was to Hope when she first started at the Inn. After I had read the novel, I am curious maybe the reason that he been rude to her was due to fact that he felt an attraction towards Hope. An attraction that he was trying to deny it. I believe that was the same feeling that Hope was having as well. Ever since the two of them shared a New Year’s Eve kiss, I was eager to find out if it would progress into something more. To be honest, I didn’t really see Ryder and Hope together, not at first. Until it was clear that he cared about her more than he was willing to admit.

I didn’t think that I could like Ryder, and at first I didn’t. Yet, he ended up becoming one of my favorite characters. I thought it was sweet, how he got her flowers and looked out for Hope when her ex, his ex’s wife upset her. Ryder showed the side of him that I didn’t think she had. To me, besides Beckett and Clare, I had this feeling that Ryder and Hope had the most connection, even when they were denying it. Even Lizzy saw it before they did. I could tell that Hope was happy with Ryder, truly happy despite how overprotective he acted at times. I knew that he loved Hope but even I did not see proposal coming, even I know I should have considering how the other two books ended. To me, Ryder did not seem the marrying type. I did find myself smiling, happy that both them found their happily after.

Part of me wants at least one other book, I want see what happens with everyone next. When I reached the last page, I was hesitant to turn the page because I knew it would be over. A beautiful, heartbreaking, haunting story. I was also happy that they were finally able to find Lizzy’s Billy, I was beginning to wonder if they ever would and so Lizzy can finally get her peace. I didn’t want to say goodbye. So far these three books had been my favorite NORA ROBERTS novels. I am in love. I know that those stories will stay with me, there are still days that I find myself thinking about them, and wondering what happened to them after. It will leave you breathless. Every single page.

Owen is the organizer of the Montgomery clan, running the family's construction business with an iron fist - and an even less flexible spreadsheet. And though his brothers bust on his compulsive list-making, the Inn BoonsBoro is about to open right on schedule. The only thing Owen didn't plan for was Avery McTavish...

Avery's popular pizza place is right across the street from the inn, giving her a first-hand look at its amazing renovation - and a newfound appreciation for Owen. Since he was her first boyfriend when they were kids, Owen has never been far from Avery's thoughts. But the attraction she's feeling for him now is far from innocent.

As Avery and Owen cautiously take their relationship to another level, the opening of the inn gives the whole town of Boonsboro a reason to celebrate. But Owen's hard work has only begun. Getting Avery to let down her guard is going to take longer than he expected - and so will getting her to realize that her first boyfriend is going to be her last...


THE LAST BOYFRIEND is the fourth NORA ROBERTS book that I have read and I had fallen in love with her writing. I have few friends who kept talking about her, now I know why. Her writing, her stories and characters will blow you away. Out of all her books that I have read, Inn BoonsBoro Trilogy has been my favorite, so far. I couldn’t seem to get enough of the story, the characters and once I reached the end, I wanted to pick up next book in series right away. THE LAST BOYFRIEND was as good as the first book in series and I adored Owen since the first book and couldn’t help but wonder who he would end up with. Avery is perfect for him, and it was clear from start how much he cared about her. Owen always seemed to be there, to take care of her. That type of story was hard to not fall in love with.

I thought it was cute, how he was her first boyfriend, even though they were like 6 at the time. It’s romantic that in the end the two of them ended up together. He was there for her when her mother showed up out of nowhere. I did not expect for him to propose to her, not that fast anyways, but I could tell that the two of them were happy with each other. I think that both needed that, needed each other. I think the ghost, Lizzy is set up on setting up the Montgomery brothers, it is as if she senses the feelings that they might not know were there. I think that it’s kind of romantic that way, even if it takes her to trap people inside together. The ghost adds a bit suspense to the story every single time. I couldn’t help but fall in love with both Avery and Owen, but then they are hard to not love.

Just like everyone in the novel, I feel in love with the Inn. Since I started reading the series, it felt like I went through when they were building to opening and to me it’s beautiful. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for Ryder and Hope. Story is not only what I love about this books, I am in love with covers which will take your breath away, titles too. If you haven’t read Nora Roberts book, you should pick up one, you be glad that you had. I wish that I read her books earlier than I had. I can’t wait to see what’s in store in her other novels.

The youngest of six talented sisters, Elyse d'Abreau was destined for stardom - until a boating accident took everything from her. Now, the most beautiful singer in Tobago can't sing. She can't even speak.

Seeking quiet solitude, Elyse accepts a friend's invitation to Atargatis Cove. Named for the mythical first mermaid, the Oregon seaside town is everything Elyse's home in the Caribbean isn't: an ocean too cold for swimming, parties too tame for singing, and people too polite to pry - except for one.

Christian Kane is a notorious playboy - insolent, arrogant, and completely charming. He's also the only person in Atargatis Cove who doesn't treat Elyse like a glass statue. He challenges her to express herself, and he admires the way she treats his younger brother, Sebastian, who believes Elyse is the legendary mermaid come to life.


When Christian needs a first mate for the Cove's high-stakes Pirate Regatta, Elyse reluctantly stows her fear of the sea and climbs aboard. The ocean isn't the only thing making waves, though - swept up in Christian's seductive tide and entranced by the Cove's charms, Elyse begins to wonder if a life of solitude isn't what she needs. But changing course again means facing her past. It means finding her inner voice. And scariest of all, it means opening her heart to a boy who's best known for breaking them...


Beautiful. Breathtaking, Heart aching.

There are so many words I can describe about how much I loved this book. It filled with a lot emotions once I turned the last page of THE SUMMER OF CHASING MERMAIDS . This book will leave you amazed and breathless. I wanted to keep on reading it because I needed to know how it ended for Elyse and Christian. The title is what caught my attention too, I love anything that has anything do with mermaids or the ocean. THE SUMMER OF CHASING MERMAIDS was the 2nd SARAH OCKLER novel I had read and it had been years since I read the other one. Once I started reading this novel, I knew that I will be checking out rest of her novels. Even though this is only 2nd novel that I read by her, I am already in love with this author’s writing. I knew I would love this book after only reading few pages in the book. THE SUMMER OF CHASING MERMAIDS was a heartbreaking story and there were few times I found myself tearing up, I can’t even begin imagine to go through what Elyse had to go through. It’s heartbreaking.

You can’t help but love Elyse, I can’t imagine that it was easy for her after losing her voice, her dream shattering into pieces. Ockler’s descriptions of Elyse’s emotions were vivid, that I could actually feel Elyse’s pain, grief and fear. I could picture everything that was happening. I know that meeting Kane brother’s, especially Christian was good for her. How can you not love Christian and Elyse? I sensed something between two of them, not long after she offered to help him with his boat. Christian was one person who seemed to treat her like she wasn’t fragile, he believed her and had her face her fears, while being besides her every step of the way. Not only did he believed into her, he loved her for who she was. At first I had my doubths that someone like Christian, who seemed to break other girls heart, won’t break hers. It wasn’t long where I noticed how much he cared for her, by the way he acted and what he did for her. I loved reading the scenes between the two of them, it always put a smile on my face. True love is beautiful.

I loved the friendship between Vanessa, Kirby and Elyse. How Vanessa accepted her right away, despite bond she seemed to have with Christian at begging of the novel. How Kirby tried to involve Elyse, make her feel welcome. Even when Elyse would push them away, they were there for her every step of the way. Now that’s true friendship right there. I don’t know if she made it as far as she had if it wasn’t for her friends, family and Christian. They gave her strength, courage.

A book you will fall in love with. Be ready for emotional ride.

The summers you spend at summer camp are indelibly etched on your heart. But what happens when the camp you love is about to close? Can you ever really say goodbye to the place that made you who you are? These are the questions that plagues Ethel, the seventy-year-old former camp director who is nursing a broken heart after losing the love of her life as she now faces the impending closure of the camp on Lake Wenatchee that she called home. It's also a question that inspires change in forty-year-old Shannon, who spent the summers of her youth as a vibrant, capable camp counselor and is now directionless after watching her career implode. And there's Laura, who has lost all intimacy with her husband and doesn't know if she can save what seems to be gone forever. Finally, Ruby, who betrayed Ethel years ago and hasn't spoken to her since, hopes this will be her chance to make amends.

When the four women learn that a homeless teen has been hiding at camp, they realize camp is something much more immediate for all: survival.

And so the three generations of women search for a way to save the place that saved them all, finding in the process a way back to themselves and each other in The Firelight Girls. 



I had worked at summer camp before, way before I got a full-time job. The one I had worked at wasn’t like one that was described in THE FIRELIGHT GIRLS but it reminded me of how much fun I had, how much fun the kids had. I loved how this camp was described, some through memories and other through conversation. I could picture it and that camp sound like fun. Just like the girls, I felt sad that the camp was shutting down. All those girls had a lot of memories down there, especially Ethel who met Haddie, her love. When I first picked up this book, I didn’t know what to think of it, I didn’t have high expectations since I never read book by this author before. THE FIRELIGHT GIRLS took me by surprise, I had never read a book like this one. I feel like it’s one of best books I read that deals with friendship. After the first few pages I had this feeling that I would end up falling in love with this book, and I did. There were times I wished I wasn’t working so I could finish, could see how things ended for Ether, Ruby, Laura, Shannon and of course, Amber.

If I were asked who was my favorite character in the book, I don’t think I would be able to answer because I loved every single one of them. Ethel, Ruby, Shannon, Laura and Amber were unique in their own way and you couldn’t help but love them. By end of the book, I learned a lot about them and to me they became real, they felt as they became my friends. I loved point view of each character between past and present as each of them were telling us a story and how they got to where they were today. How all of them stood by each other even after years apart, especially when they discovered Amber, and how they made her feel welcome, loved and part of the crowd. That had me smiling. I was observed in the book from first page till the last page. THE FIRELIGHT GIRLS is type of book that will always stay with you. Once I finished reading the book, I couldn’t help but wonder what would happen to them all after. However the ending gave me feeling that they would end up being okay.

A powerful story about love, loss, friendship, hope.

The historic hotel in Boonsboro has endured war and peace, the changing of hands, and even rumored hauntings. Now it's getting a major face-lift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect in the family, Beckett's social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there's another project he's got his eye on: the girl he's been waiting to kiss since he was sixteen.

After losing her husband and returning to her hometown, Clare Brewster soon settles into her life as the mother of three young sons while running the town's bookstore. Though busy and with little time for romance, Clare is drawn across the street by Beckett's transformation of the old inn, wanting to take a closer look...at both the building and the man behind it.

With the grand opening inching closer, Beckett is happy to give Clare a private tour - one room at a time, in between blueprint meetings and kindergarten pickups. It's no first date, but these stolen moments are the beginning of something that could arouse the secret yearning that resides in Clare's independent heart - and open the door to the extraordinary adventure of what comes next... 


Beautifully written. Magical Love Story.

I think that I am in love. NEXT TO ALWAYS is my third NORA ROBERTS book and now I know why people love her. Roberts storied will pull you in from first page to the last, leaving you craving for more. I loved everything about this novel, the characters, the story, the descrptions and the emotions that you felt while reading it. Roberts knows how to capture each characters emotions beautifully and you will find yourself feeling those emotions along with them. Through reading the novel, I had this feeling that I was feeling the emotions that both Clare and Beckett were feeling, as if I was connecting with both. It was astonishing. I couldn’t get enough of Clare and Beckett story, and curious where it would lead them. Would they stay together or would something get in their way? Yet, at same time I felt a bit sad when I reached the end of their story. It was as if I was saying goodbye to friends. I am hoping because it is a series that I will see more of Beckett and Clare in the next book THE LAST BOYFRIEND..

To me, I felt as I got to know each character a bit better because it got split up between Clare and Bennet point of view and sometimes the brothers and my curiosity about other brothers picked up, I am eager to read their stories. I knew that Bennett was crazy about Clare since he was a teenager, just way he acted around and always wanted to be around her. I could tell that Clare felt something for Bennett as well, but it was like something stood in her way. I had a feeling it could been something to do with her late husband, Clint. I can’t even begin to imagine to lose love of your life and have raise your 3 children on your own. I wanted a happy ending for Clare and there was nobody better for her that Bennett, who fell in love not just with her but her children as well. That sort of guy is keeper. I loved how he wanted make sure she safe after Sam started to stalk her. Now that’s true love. I was grinning by end when Clare and Bennett got their happily after.

Loved the ghost in the Inn as the mix in story. Ghosts had always fascinated me in story, it was an interesting twist to story, and made it more interesting to read. Yet I couldn’t help but wonder how she knew when Clare was in trouble. There was a chance that story could ended differently if it wasn’t for her. Like I said, NEXT TO ALWAYS was filled with so many mixed emotions. This is one of her series that is worth every page, every chapter. I can’t wait for Owen and Avery’s story in THE LAST BOYFRIEND.

Gorgeous Nantucket is an island where memories are made, friendships begun, passions ignited. Now, during one unforgettable summer, the exclusive Nantucket Beach Club and Hotel will shape the fates of the men and women who walk through its doors...

Mack Petersen escaped the past and started over in a hotel that has become his life. This summer his secrets can't stay hidden. Love O'Donnell, a glamorous Aspen native, takes a job at the Beach Club to implement her life plan--to find a man to get her pregnant. Vance Robbins has his African-American pride and festering resentments. This season, a gun and a woman offer him a chance to get even with the man he hates most.

Cecily Elliott, the owner's daughter, wild and beautiful at eighteen, is about to do something to break her parents' hearts. And Lacey Gardner, the Grande Dame of the Beach Club for 45 years, knows about desperate desire--and about the storm coming that will change everything. 

THE BEACH CLUB was the 4th ELIN HILDERBRAND novel that I have read and for the first time since I started reading her books back in 2012, to find myself disappointed by the end of the book. I didn’t think that it was a bad book, but it wasn’t what I expected to be, based on my experience of her other novels that I had read. I know that it was her first book and I could tell that it was different, even her style was different, by wat that THE BEACH CLUB was written. I felt like there were too many characters in this book, and there were times I felt confused while reading the book, mostly because there were so many stories that I had to follow. There were also parts in the book that I had a feeling were dragging and it was a bit hard to follow. When I picked this book up, I had a bit higher expectations for it.

There were few parts of the books that I did enjoy. I had enjoyed reading about Mack’s story, about how it all started even if he wasn’t my favorite character in book. I tried to like him, and there were times that I did, especially towards end of the book. I did not like how he treated his girlfriend, Maribel, she did not deserve that. To be honest, I don’t know why she stayed with him as long as she had, she had deserved much better than Mack. Out of all the characters in the book, Cecily and Lacey were my favorites. I had enjoyed reading their stories. There was part of me that wondered if there was a chance that maybe Cecily and Mack might end up together, like their parents, especially her mother seemed to want. However it felt like Mack was the last person on her mind. Yet, the ending had me wondering once again.

Storm was the most interesting that had happened in the book, adding a bit of thrill to the story. The letters in beginning of each chapter added a bit mystery to it, and had me wondering who was possibly writing the letters, and he seemed to know almost everything. Was he a friend? Someone who worked at the beach club? Someone who was part of beach club? The most important question was of course why he wanted he him to sell it that much? There was part of me that wonder if he go for it, sell it. In the end I was relieved that he didn’t. THE BEACH CLUB was an enjoyable book, but I just did no enjoy like I did with her other novels, but it’s worth giving a try.

How long do you hold on to hope?

Danica Greene has always hated flying, so it was almost laughable that the boy of her dreams was a pilot. She married him anyway and together, she and Etsell settled into a life where love really did seem to conquer all. Danica is firmly rooted on the ground in Blackhawk, the small town in northern Iowa where they grew up, and the wide slashes of sky that stretch endlessly across the prairie seem more than enough for Etsell. But when the opportunity to spend three weeks in Alaska helping a pilot friend presents itself, Etsell accepts and their idyllic world is turned upside down. It’s his dream, he reveals, and Danica knows that she can’t stand in the way.

Ell is on his last flight before heading home when his plane mysteriously vanishes shortly after takeoff, leaving Danica in a free fall. Etsell is gone, but what exactly does gone mean? Is she a widow? An abandoned wife? Or will Etsell find his way home to her? Danica is forced to search for the truth in her marriage and treks to Alaska to grapple with the unanswerable questions about her husband’s mysterious disappearance.

But when she learns that Ell wasn’t flying alone and that a woman is missing, too, the bits and pieces of the careful life that she had constructed for them in Iowa take to the wind. 

Have you come across a book that ended up taking you by surprise? FAR FROM HERE was that book for me. When I came across this book while I was at the library, I didn’t know what to expect, I had never read book by this author before. It was the cover, the title that drew my attention to the story. Once I read the summary, my curiosity for the story grew more and by reading it, I was eager to find out how it was going to end, if we wo ill find out what happened Etsell. FAR FROM HERE had a mystery mixed in it, and one of reasons that had me curious because I love books that have any sort mystery in it. How can you not be curious about someone’s mysterious disappearance on the plane? You can’t help but wonder if there is a chance that Etsell might be somewhere out there, hurt? Or if there is chance that he left by choice. I feel like by the end that the issue isn’t discovered.

Etsell and Danica are unlikely pair. It is mostly because Etsell is a pilot and Danica is terrified of flying. I did wonder if their marriage would survived if he did come back, especially after what Samantha confessed to about Etsell and her. Would she forgiven him? Even I was in shock, from what I read through the novel, I could tell that Etsell was crazy about Danica. Cheating was last thought that entered me when it was discovered that Samantha went missing too. I was in shock and I could feel Danica’s emotions, anger, betrayal, even if it was a mistake. In the end he still hurt her. I am just glad that her sisters were there though it all, especially Kat, and there was Hazel and Benjamin. I don’t think that she would made it through this, if it wasn’t for them.

Emotions in this novel were magical. I could feel every single emotion that the characters were feeling, especially Danica, as if I was right there besides her. It was hard for me to not get drawn into this book, the story. I loved every single page. I was actually sad when I reached the last page, but at same time relieved that Danica was able to move past what had happened.

A beautiful, touching, heart aching story about love, loss, hope and moving on.
