May Mini Musings
Fowl Language: If you are on Facebook, you have probably seen panels from this comic floating around. I don't think I have seen one yet that I can't relate to. Having them all in one volume is a bonus. My favorite one is your child not being able to find"it" even when it is right in front of his.her nose. I definitely recommend this one for any parent. Trust me, you will be able to relate!
Things I've Said to My Children: This is another amusing and relatable book. While I might not have said some of these thing word for word, I have definitely found myself saying similar things to my own children. It's definitely worth a read!
Once a Rancher: This is the beginning of a new series involving three brothers, but takes place in Mustang Creek like her last series with some of the other characters showing up. I thought it was a cute, yet fast romance. The marriage proposal came out REALLY fast and I couldn't blame Grace for being reluctant to say yes. I do have a challenge for Ms. Miller though. Can you write one story without using the word "proverbial"? Still it's worth a read and is a good introduction to the Carson family. I look forward to Drake's story next!
Autumn Thorns: I'm kind of on the fence with this story. On the one hand I did like the world building and the mythology behind the spirit shamans and shape shifters. I also liked the mystery of what happened to Kerris's parents. I didn't even mind that there were unanswered questions that hopefully will be answered in the next book. But what I hated was the insta-love between Kerris and Bryan. And let's mention the cringe-worthy and so awkward love scenes between the two. That alone made this a so-so story for me. The author really needs to work on her love scenes!
