Book Review - Highland Protector by Catherine Bybee - MaCcoinnich Time Travel Series

I do not generally read supernatural or fantasy books, but this series has had me wanting more since the beginning.  Amber MacConnich has been forced to be separated from her family for her safety and in hopes of finding what will save her from death.   Time is running out when two other time travelers arrive unexpectedly.   As the solution becomes clear, choices have to be made about what can be sacrificed and tolerated to save her life.

Book Review – Meant for Love by Marie Force - The McCarthy's of Gansett Island Series

Meant for Love is book 10 of Marie Force’s The McCarthy’s of Gansett Island Series.  This series is one of my favorites, and Marie does such a wonderful job creating characters that are easy to love, but aren't so perfect that they make me hate them.  In this book, Force successfully balances the main story-line, which bringing in some of the earlier characters that I've grown to love.  My heart broke for both Jenny and Alex and what they were going through.  When I first read Jenny’s letter previously in the series, my heart broke for the woman who was still trying to pull her life together ten years after 9/11.  When Alex’s family was introduced, my heart again broke for him and what his family is going through in dealing with his mother’s dementia.  The journey they take together feels genuine and realistic.  Force also does a great job of telling a compelling love story involving a woman in her late 30’s.  So many books in the romance genre involve women in their 20’s,
