The Perfect Letter by Chris Harrison

Chris Harrison, the beloved longtime host of ABC’s The Bachelor, explores the perils and rewards of risking everything for love in his first novel, THE PERFECT LETTER, out now from our friends at Dey Street Books! Leigh Merrill had spent ten years running away from her past. A talented young book editor on the fast track at a major publishing house, Leigh had been determined to build a life for herself in New York City—a life far from the hay-filled barns, swimming holes, and rolling hills of her grandfather’s horse farm in Texas. And for the most part, she’d succeeded. This new life, one filled with books and parties and romance, was everything she’d dreamt of as a girl. Complete. Happy even, if Leigh considered the future she was building with Joseph, a brilliant, generous man who adored the very ground she walked on. Still, when the invitation arrived asking…

Book Review: An Arranged Valentine by Kadee McDonald

An Arranged Valentine is a thoroughly entertaining regency romance. The principle characters are well drawn and engaging, with Penelope an intriguing heroine. Like most women of the age, she has to find her betrothed before she passes what would be the dreaded marrying age. Her father thus engineers an arrangement which may be (but possibly won’t be) altogether to her liking.  Fortunately, as the story develops, the reader can discern a real warmth developing between the H/h and it’s the little details…the notes, the valentines, the references to Robert Burns that truly made this light romance punch well above its weight.  Lines I liked, and this was typical of the well placed humour throughout the book:- “Penelope….you do understand we have just been found in a compromising situation?”  Of course, the over riding situation is one where it suits both parties to be arranged. The key to this story, and…
