Review: The Care and Feeding of Waspish Widows by Olivia Waite (2020)

Feminine Pursuits, Book 2

Review of Feminine Pursuits, Book 1

Heat Factor: Slow, steady, burn.

Character Chemistry: So much pining! But also, believable BFFs. And they do that thing where they call each other by last name and I swoon every time. 

Plot: A year in the life of Flood and Griffin. 

Overall: The plot meanders but sometimes a book (even a romance) is more than a tight plot. I recommend reading this one.

Review: 500 Miles from You by Jenny Colgan (2020)

Scottish Bookshop, Book #3

Heat Factor: They’re not even in the same place until the very end of the book (seriously, 96%), so no

Character Chemistry: Weirdly, the chemistry worked for me, and I’m still trying to figure out how

Plot: Two nurses do an exchange program

Overall: It’s a lot and scanty at the same time

Dueling Review: Dear Aaron by Mariana Zapata (2017)

If Ingrid were to review this book, she would call it a Recommended Read. If Erin were to review this book, she would write a Rant. Clearly, we needed to review this book together. 

Welcome to Dueling Reviews

Moderated by Holly, who is vastly entertained by Erin and Ingrid duking it out.

Erin’s Take:

Heat Factor: Totally vanilla.

Character Chemistry: They deserve each other.

Plot: I shouldn’t ask you this, it’s none of my business, you don’t have to answer.

Overall: I’d think Aaron was totally hot if I didn’t know I could bowl him over with the force of my personality.

Ingrid’s Take:

Heat Factor: It’s a steamy, fudgy, vanilla ice cream SUNDAE.

Character Chemistry:They’re like sweet, slightly damaged puzzle pieces

Plot: Young, isolated, emotionally inexperienced young woman becomes pen pal to army man stationed overseas. They bond deeply. To make this into a real relationship, they have to mature emotionally and find a way to communicate. Also, very sexy funtimes.

Overall: These guys aren’t perfect, but the way they bungle their way into a match made in heaven is steamy, sexy, and kind of cute.
