The Audacity of Sara Grayson by Joani Elliott
Dying author wills
daughter to write her last book.
Can Sara do it?
Contemporary fiction .... 396 pages .... 5/5 stars.
(I loved this one -- the characters, the writing quotes at the top of each chapter, Sara's journey to find her own voice, and especially the heart and happy ending.)
The Runaway (Peter Ash #7) by Nick Petrie
She's pregnant & running
from her husband. Trouble erupts
when Peter tries to help.
Action/Thriller .... 379 pages .... 4/5 stars.
(This is Helene's story more than Peter's; and it's darker and more unsettling than Petrie's other six books.)
Never Fall For Your Fiancée by Virginia Heath
Lies have a way of
becoming truth when two people
pretend to be in love.
Regency romance .... 356 pages .... 3.5/5 stars.
(Humorous and cute.)
Love your Haikus! Never Fall For Your Fiance sounds like a lot of fun!ReplyDelete
It was a fun romance, with likable characters and some humorous moments, too. :)Delete
Never Fall For Your Fiancée sounds like my kind of book. Fun reviews!ReplyDelete
It's a cute romance. And the characters are very fun. :)Delete
The Audacity of Sara Grayson sounds like an interesting read to me. As always, love your haiku reviews! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks, Melody! And you might like The Audacity of Sara Grayson. It's a fun read. :)Delete
I read The Runaway last month. I really enjoyed it though you are right about it being darker. I do like the character of Peter Ash though. I imagine he's similar to Reacher, though I never read that series.ReplyDelete
And your haikus, a fun touch!
Peter Ash has many similarities to Jack Reacher. They're both favorite characters of mine. And if you like this series, you'd probably enjoy the Jack Reacher series, too. Thanks for commenting! :) I'd comment back on your blog posts, but I hate Disqus.Delete
I just loved The Audacity of Sara Grayson too! I just love your Haikus, Lark!ReplyDelete
The Audacity of Sara Grayson was so fun. :DDelete

Then I've done my job. ;DDelete
All of these books sound appealing to me. Love your haiku reviews! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks, Ashley! :)Delete
Nice haikus! The first book caught my eye. I added it to my TBR. I hope I like it.ReplyDelete
I hope you do, too. I really enjoyed it. :)Delete
I can't help it...I always read these inside my head using that "ominous" movie trailer voice that we see (used to see) in movie theaters. LOLReplyDelete
Ha! That's hilarious. I'm never going to be able to write these now without hearing that voice in my head. :DDelete
Love the haiku.ReplyDelete
Thank you! :)Delete
I like the sound of those first two!ReplyDelete
They're great reads. :)Delete
I'm glad you loved THE AUDACITY OF SARA GRAYSON! I have a copy of it and am looking forward to reading it.ReplyDelete
It's about family and secrets and friendship and writing and I really liked it. :)Delete
I love the cover of The Audacity of Sara Grayson, and love the haiku reviews as always!ReplyDelete
Thank you! There's a lot to like about The Audacity of Sara Grayson. :)Delete
I've meant to read a book by Nick Petrie for a long time. Thanks for the reminder!ReplyDelete
I love his Peter Ash series! It's so good.Delete
I need to catch up with the Peter Ash series! I don't even know who Helene is! Wonderful reviews, Lark!ReplyDelete
She only shows up in this seventh book, so you haven't missed too much.Delete
Yay for 5 stars for The Audacity of Sara Grayson! I am looking forward to reading that one.ReplyDelete
I just really enjoyed it. The characters are great, and the writing parts were interesting, and the family secrets added a little mystery. It's fun.Delete
Yes! More Haiku reviews. :) (Incidentally, I recently found out ther's something called "Haiga" as well i.e. haiku with calligraphy/ art.) The Runaway reminds me a lot of the movie Sleeping with the Enemy. But the Elliott book has a very unique premise, count me interested! ~LexReplyDelete
The Elliott book was a very fun read. And I'll have to check out some Haiga. :DDelete
I love the haikus! Looking forward to reading Never Fall...ReplyDelete
There are several cute moments in that one. :)Delete
I like these cute and short reviews. I'm glad you enjoyed these books.ReplyDelete

Thanks! I have fun writing them. :)Delete
I love your haikus. I want to do some exercises of writing very very brief mini reviews ... if only for my personal use. Because I almost always write too much.ReplyDelete
:D I don't have that problem. I tend to write too little on all my reviews.Delete
I added the Audacity of Sara Grayson to my TBR :) Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
I hope you enjoy it! :DDelete
