Tasty Tuesday Review: Donald Link Down South with Paula Disbrowe

imageIf I were a gulf shrimp, I’d want to wind up in Donald Link‘s kitchen. The mouth-watering Southern recipes he shares in Down South: Bourbon, Pork, Gulf Shrimp & Second Helpings of Everything are just too enticing. The photographs by Chris Granger are gorgeous.

Review: Donna Kauffman’s Sandpiper Island is a must-read romance of the heart and spirit

imageDon’t be surprised to hear that I’m moving to Maine. Once again Donna Kauffman has written a siren song about a small coastal Maine town that has me jonesing not just for a vacation, but a life-changing move.

If you’re looking to lose yourself in a romance for a few hours, pick up the third book in Donna Kauffman’s The Bachelors of Blueberry Cove series, Sandpiper Island. The only problem with this book is that after the last page is turned, I don’t want to leave Blueberry Cove. I. Don’t. My one wish is that Sea Glass Sunrise, …
