Haiku Reviews...

The Matrimonial Advertisement by Mimi Matthews


Ex-army captain
seeks wife. A lady answers
his ad. Romance ensues.


Victorian period romance .... 378 pages ..... 3.5/5 stars. ('Cause sometimes I'm in the mood for a happily ever after kind of story...even a completely predictable one.)





Left For Dead: My Journey Home From Everest by Beck Weathers


Frozen and presumed
dead on Everest, he got a
second chance at life.


True story .... 287 pages .... 3.5/5 stars.
(A perfect companion read to Jon Krakauer's Into Thin Air.)




A Gathering of Secrets by Linda Castillo (Kate Burkholder mystery #10)



One Amish teen murdered--
Sheriff Kate means to find out
the real reason why.


Mystery ---- 308 pages .... 4.5/5 stars.
(I really enjoy this mystery series!)




Happy Reading!

    1. The Matrimonial Advertisement is a bit predictable...but that isn't always a bad thing in a romance. Thanks for commenting, Lissa! :)

  9. Hi Lark, I discovered Linda Castillo from a movie starring Neve Campbell as Kate Burkholder. Went on to read the book and agree this is a great series.

    1. That's how I discovered Linda Castillo! It was a good movie of her first book, wasn't it? I kind of wish they'd made more. :)

  10. I'm with you, sometimes those romance novels are just what you need. I really like the sound of this one so will have to check it out. And, I've really enjoyed a couple of the Kate Burkholder books so I can't wait to read more fo that series

  11. I bought LEFT FOR DEAD a while back after reading INTO THIN AIR. I've yet to read it, but I'm going to eventually. The whole story of their Everest adventure is so fascinating!
