Pat's Review: Then There Was You

Remember, since this is a Royal Pick, come back on May 31st for a chance to win an ecopy of your own!



Then There Was You by Miranda Liasson
Publisher: Forever (May 29, 2018)
Series: Spikonos Brothers, 1
Genre: Contemporary Romance


Welcome to Angel Falls, a town so delightful even enemies can't help falling in love!

Angel Falls is the last place Sara Langdon wants to be. Her hometown may be charming, but it's also filled with memories of her "wedding-that-never-was." Yet Sara's grandmother needs her, and joining her dad at his medical practice gives Sara time to figure out what she wants for her future. But when her first patient turns out to be Colton Walker, the man who sabotaged her wedding, Sara starts to wonder if she'll ever be able to escape her past.

As police chief, Colton Walker is devoted to his small town, and he's equally determined to avoid its newest resident. He and Sara have always gotten along like oil and water, and since the bachelor party incident, he's her Enemy #1. But after sharing an unexpected--and unexpectedly hot--kiss, Colton starts to wonder if the woman he's always fighting with is the one he should be fighting for.

Whatcha Reading? (May 19th)




Let's just rip the band-aid off, shall we? This week, RT (RomanticTimes convention) was going on in Reno. It's the last RT con, as the magazine/site is shutting down in the next month, and the there will no longer be any more yearly conventions. There's going to be a new con, being called a similar/replacement con, next year from Book Lovers Con. But even though I've never been to RT (it was a dream though, so this was a kick in the gut to me), I'm pretty confident it won't be the same as RT. Also, there's a problem with their current lineup of authors for May 2019's event being all white and all writers of MF romances. Listen: you should start something the way you wish to continue it. And if your list of authors is all white and cishet writers? I don't trust that you're going to ever change that VERY TELLING mentality "in the coming months/years".

So that was a blow to the romance community. I know that not everyone had a great experience with RT cons. (And those are also valid experiences, don't get me wrong!) But one cannot deny that RT -- both the magazine and especially the convention -- was a huge part of this industry, this community. And I don't think there's going to be any smaller cons that can try to replace it. Like I said, never been to RT, or any romance related event -- hell, I've never been out of my state, but I digress -- but it was always this dream of mine. Even though I knew the price for such a trip and event would never, ever be in my future. It was still this "but maybe someday . . . . " option for me. And now it's gone. I've had this feeling for a few years, which I just figured was my FOMO and anxiety talking, that I would never get to RT before the event became a thing of the past. Well, guess my anxiety brain was actually right. Yay? (Not.)


Remember, there's still time to join the #RomBkLove fun on Twitter -- new prompts every day, but you can always search through previous topics. So much fun. So many great books. HIDE YOUR WALLET FIRST. Don't say I didn't warn you!


Want a laugh? I was trying to do a Very Series Tweet earlier this week, and my phone corrected "quaking orgasm" to "QUACKING orgasm". Worse, I didn't even notice the mistake until the next day. Yeah, I'm still hiding my head in the sand over that mistake. QUACK QUACK QUACK OOOOOOOOOH. ;)


As to my reading week, this week should be renamed the week of the fours -- 4 star reads across the board! Except for my last read, which is a Royal Pick. So let's get into the book chats, shall we?

Pat's Review: Summer at the Castle Cafe

Remember, since this is a Royal Pick, come back on May 31st for a chance to win an ecopy of your own!



Summer at the Castle Cafe by Donna Ashcroft
Publisher: Bookouture (May 11, 2018)
Genre: Contemporary Romance


The cosy, crumbling Castle Café is a place like no other. With stunning views of the sparkling sea and sandy beaches, you’re guaranteed a warm welcome, delicious cake and plenty of laughter as soon as you step through the door...

When Alice Appleton escapes to the gorgeous seaside town of Castle Cove it’s the change of scenery she didn’t even realise she needed. Taking up a job in the charming Castle Café, Alice finds herself surrounded by cream teas, chocolate cake and quirky characters. Could this be the perfect place for Alice to embrace the summer?

Mysterious and hunky Jay O’Donnell has lived in picturesque Castle Cove since he was a child. As a volunteer on the lifeboats, his days by the sea are far from predictable. Haunted by a tragedy from his past, he’s on a mission to save as many people as possible. But when Alice Appleton walks into his life - and turns his world upside down - he begins to realise that perhaps it might just be his turn to be rescued…

As Alice and Jay find themselves unexpectedly falling for each other, will they learn the importance of letting go to make way for second chances? And will Alice find the life she’s always dreamed of in Castle Cove?
