Happy fall! NetGalley is a site that allows readers to apply to read early copies of books for review purposes. The books that I read through NetGalley that were released during fall 2020 varied from several suspense, two women’s fiction, a rom-com and a Christmas book. I hate to pick favorites, so I won’t. But all of them did end up with at least a four star review. All of the book links are Amazon ones. If you purchase any of these books, you help support my writing life at no extra cost to you. Thanks!
Love’s Pure Light by Susanne Dietze; Shannon McNear; Deborah Raney; Janine Rosche – Released on September 1, 2020
Reading a Christmas book in the fall was definitely interesting. What was great about this collection is that every story is connected by a Nativity scene. Overall I really enjoyed this book, and I may decide to re-read it during December when I will be in more of a Christmas mood. Here is a link to my Goodreads review.
Everywhere to Hide by Siri Mitchell Released on October 6, 2020
I was definitely excited to read another suspense book by this author. The book definitely did not disappoint. I am not sure how she comes up with her plot ideas, but this one is definitely original. Writing the review for this one was a challenge because I did not want to give anything away.
Autumn Skies by Denise Hunter Released on October 20, 2020
I was definitely looking forward to book three in the Bluebell Inn series. And I did enjoy reading Grace’s story. The heroine that the author came up for this one was stellar. I do think that the books should be read in order of the series. Finishing the book was bittersweet since it did mean saying good-bye to characters that I enjoyed. This is what I thought about the book.
What You Said to Me by Olivia Newport Released on November 1, 2020
Many authors write trilogies these days, but this was book 4 in the “Tree of Life” series. And I think it seems like book five is coming. If you enjoy reading historical time slip mysteries, this is a good one. There is not really a lot of suspense, but Jillian does try to fill in missing gaps in historical timelines. Here is my opinion.
The Cul-de-Sac War by Melissa Ferguson Released on November 10, 2020
This book is definitely a romantic comedy as I could not stop laughing through many scenes. In a time when life is too serious, we need to read more books like this one. Read my review to find out where I learned that I should not try to read Melissa’s books. By the way, she is equally hilarious on social media. Follow her.
