When I Fall in Love
Author
Lynn Kurland
Review
This is another awesome read by Lynn Kurland. Nicholas is probably my favorite hero by her.

Jennifer is a fabulous musician living in Manhattan. All she wants is a relationship like the ones her siblings enjoy. After Prince Charming turns out to be a toad, and an opportunity to spend some time in England with her sister, Jennifer jumps on the opportunity for a much needed change of scenery.

Nicholas is a medieval lord with a very leaky castle, a meddlesome grandmother who wants to see him wed, and a "murky past". Why can't any of the ladies his grandmother brings to pester him see past his illegitimacy?

Enter in three unlikely fairy godfathers (ghosts) who push Jennifer into a time gate to Medieval England... and into her future.

Gotrek & Felix: Road of Skulls (Warhammer Novels)
Author
Josh Reynolds
Review
This was a wonderful addition to the Gotrek & Felix (Warhammer) series. Some of the authors involved in these tales have disappointed me in the past, but I will definitely pick up another Josh Reynolds novel!

Secrets of the Baby Whisperer
Author
Tracy Hogg
Review
I read this book in one sitting. A good common-sense approach to communicating with your baby before he is able to speak. Pretty helpful in deciphering babies' cues and cries. I ran copies of a few of her charts to help me decipher what my son is trying to tell me. Would recommend to new parents.

The Ice Cream Queen of Orchard Street
Author
Susan Jane Gilman
Review
Joyce Saricks says that readers do not read based on plot - that they can read the same plot over and over but if the book's appeal draws them in, they won't even notice. This, for me, was indicative of that statement. Based on plot alone, I probably would not have been interested in this book. I picked it up based on a recommendations. It sucked me in from the very first page. I absolutely LOVE Lillian Dunkle. She has been tested and re-tested throughout her life, and it has given her guts. She's a tough woman living a tough life. Gilman does a wonderful job of creating characters, in this book, that you understand and relate to in all their complexity. You love and you hate them. They are like family. I highly recommend this read, and yes, the reviews are true ... you will be hungry for ice cream!
