Dashing Home for Christmas

Happy Ending? I Hope So… I loved the romance and humor in this. First of all the two leads were in each others company almost non-stop throughout the movie which led to lots of interaction and realistic relationship building. I loved their chemistry. They had two very distinct and quirky personalities which at the same … Continue reading Dashing Home for Christmas

Bottled With Love

Bethany Bottles Charm This is another take on You got Mail, which was a new take on In the Good Old Summertime, which was a new take on The Shop Around the Corner.

How to Capture a Countess

by Karen Hawkins “Financial standing, a social position beyond what she has now, and a husband to dote upon her every wish. What more could she ask for?” “Maybe youth. Vigor. Teeth.” “Lord Cameron has his own teeth.” Margaret narrowed her eyes at the other candidate. “I’m not so certain about Munro.

Matchmaker Santa

Meh. Reliable Lacey just didn’t do it for me in this one. This movie was made 8 years ago and Lacey Chabert hasn’t changed a bit. And I’m not sure that’s a good thing. Same hairdo, same lipstick, same signature eyeliner. Honestly, couldn’t she even wash her face before going to bed? On the other … Continue reading Matchmaker Santa

Suspense and Sensibility: Or, First Impressions Revisited (Mr. & Mrs. Darcy Mysteries, #2)

by Carrie Bebris I’m a sucker for anything based on Jane Austen if it is well done. And sometimes when it is not. This is evidenced by the fact that I’ve read all of these Mr. and Mrs. Darcy Mysteries, though this is the only one I have actually written anything on. It starts off … Continue reading Suspense and Sensibility: Or, First Impressions Revisited (Mr. & Mrs. Darcy Mysteries, #2)

The Astronaut Wives Club

By Lisa Koppel “On his previous Apollo 10 mission, a “dry run” for Apollo 11, Geno had radioed back to Houston that riding around the Moon was a piece of cake. “It was definitely not a piece of cake for me,” said Barbara. “If you think going to the Moon is hard, try staying at … Continue reading The Astronaut Wives Club
