My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I found this book to be very helpful. I loved that it contains a variety of recipes and then goes a step further with tips. I am adjusting my cooking from a family of 8 to a family of 2 plus small dog. I have been using my Instant Pot frequently with recipes I know how to make. With the help from this book I have been able to prepare smaller meals that are very tasty.

Review: Unwelcome Guests

Unwelcome Guests Unwelcome Guests by Anna Willett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the first book I read by Anna Willet. I enjoyed it. I liked the way the author kept you guessing on who to trust. That was well done. There were a few parts that were unbelievable for me. This does not always bother me as I know fiction does not mean reality. However in this story, I felt that it did make a difference for me. I’m sorry I’m sounding so vague but I honestly hate giving away things. The story was interesting and made me wonder what I would have thought or done if it were me.
This story touches on sexual abuse but I thought it was well done. Things were explained but not graphically. I thought the author did a very good job giving details that left much of it up to your mind.

Review: Blush of Love

Blush of Love Blush of Love by Rachelle Ayala
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was excited to read this story. I enjoy the author’s writing but this book was special for me because I’m a gamer. I really enjoyed the storyline. There were some minor things in the game world that I couldn’t picture. Because of that I actually would give this 41/2 stars. I rounded up because while I couldn’t picture the game world exactly as written, it did not take from the story. It was a personal issue that formed from my gaming experience. The romance between Safire and Matt, in the game world, was well done. I have experienced that. I have played with a boyfriend on several games. Closer to Safire and Matt’s story, I am now playing a game with a game boyfriend, (for those who don’t game, there is a difference between a boyfriend you game with and a game boyfriend). I thought their game relationship played out very well and it rang true. This was a fun book to read with a multiple genre blend..mostly romance and game themed, with a mystery and some drama involved. Something for almost everyone.
The book is a bit spicy at times. For those who like it spicy, it enhances the story. For those who don’t like the spice, you could skip over without losing the story.
