Main Street by Dianna Wilkes

This was a book I got from Voracious Readers in exchange for an honest review.

Dana Canfield had no idea her husband would die and leave her a widow. Deciding she needs a fresh start, she relocates to Providence Island of the coast of Virginia. As an Interior designer, she gets her first job, renovating Main Street. As soon as she arrives she has a close call when someone tries to run over her. Not too long after, there is a break in at her house. She has no idea that secrets in her past could get her killed. 

Nick Varden, a mechanic who catches Dana's eye, saves her life and they soon start a relationship but he realizes that all the incidents that happen to Dana are connected to the death of her husband. Can NIck keep Dana safe or will they both be destroyed?

Main Street by Dianna Wilkes is the first installment of Providence Island Series and it starts with a bang. From the very first page, it grabbed my attention. The book has everything you could want in a Romantic Suspense story. I fell in love with Nick and Dana and I have to admit that even though it started out slow, the more I got into the story, the more I wanted to read. The ending was not what I expected. It keeps you guessing right up until the last page.

The Bartered Body by J.R. Lindermuth



**** stars

The Bartered Body by J. R. Lindermuth is a delightful read full of twists and turns. It was set back in the 1800's and the author captured the era perfectly I don't usually read historical fiction but I really enjoyed this book. It's a short read and can easily be finished in a day. The characters were very realistic and the story kept me guessing. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves history and a good tale.

My Review:

*****

I love everything about this story. One of my favorite places in the whole world is Ireland and I love stories that take place there. All That Compels the Heart is a story is sexy, there are some parts that are funny and it is intensely touching. Readers will not go wrong reading this installment by Erin Bowlen. It was hard for me to put it down.

Author Bio:

Erin Bowlen was born and raised in New Brunswick, Canada. Growing up, she was influenced by her family's artistic roots in the art of storytelling, which fostered a deep love for literature at a young age.
Erin began her writing career during her postgraduate studies at the University of New Brunswick. Finding herself at a crossroads with her academic writing, a friend suggested that she try writing fiction. Afraid she might be too much of a storyteller to be completely academic (and afraid she might be too academic to be a storyteller), she decided to participate in a 30-day writing competition. At the end of the month she was surprised tat she not only met her word count goal, but she had also developed several novel ideas.
After a few years of developing her craft, she finally took the next step and published her first novel: All That Compels the Heart.
Erin currently lives in New Brunswick.

A Wonderful Read!


Blurb: We're all stupid in love.

Brand Ehlert drunkenly stumbles into Peace, Montana in the middle of the night. The shame of failure burns like a wildfire hot on his heels. It doesn't take him long to realize that running from the ruins of his old life was the best decision he's ever made. There's this girl, and he can't get enough of her. Before he knows it, the beautiful artist has him wrapped around her little finger. With only the shirt on his back and dumb luck, special moments come easy for them. But the lure of the bottle is strong. His personal demons ignite the embers of his past. Soon he fears he's destroyed the only thing that's ever truly mattered to him.

Will Brand's destructive history repeat itself, or is he capable of something more?




My Review:

****

I really enjoyed reading this book. Rachel Walter is someone you're going to want to watch out for. It was enthralling...a wonderful read. The combination of plot, deeply emotional characters, and ever-growing love is something you will enjoy. I love Brand's story and I hope to read more by this author.
