Haiku Reviews...

 

The Cheat Sheet by Sarah Adams


Bree is his best friend
but Nathan wants more. Can he
make Bree love him back?


Romantic comedy .... 292 pages .... 4/5 stars.
(I loved how Nathan's football friends tried to help him get out of the friend zone!)





Razorblade Tears by S.A. Cosby


Two ex-cons, one black,
one white, team up to avenge
their murdered sons.


Crime fiction .... 319 pages .... 3.5/5 stars.
(If this book was a movie, it would definitely be Rated R for language and violence.)




An Unorthodox Match by Naomi Ragen


Leah's found her way
back to God, but will the ultraorthodox
of Boro Park welcome her in?


Contemporary fiction (with a touch of romance).... 322 pages .... 4.5/5 stars.
(A lovely and informative immersion into Jewish culture.)



Happy Reading!

  1. I'd read all of those but The Cheat Sheet appeals most at the moment. I'm in the mood for 'light'.

    I've just released all your comments on my last post. Thanks for letting me know as I don't look in my spambox very often!

    1. The Cheat Sheet is definitely light and fun. At least it made me laugh. And thank you for rescuing my comments from the spam folder...although now there's so many of them I look like a blog stalker. ;D

    1. It's a very intense and action-packed story. And a little heartbreaking at times, too.

    1. I really liked that one. It focuses more on life in that community than on just the romance, which I found very interesting.

  21. I like your Haikus. Yeah I didn't really like Razorblade Tears either ... but somehow I liked his first novel. But this one no!

    1. I'm not a super huge fan of revenge novels, and I didn't love all the language in it, so that's why I couldn't give it more than 3.5 stars.
