Rhe’s Bookshelf: Bookshelf Update!

Gosh, I haven’t done one of these in awhile. I’ve been really killing it in the book reading department this year. I made sort of a pact with myself to do some more reading, and really make that part of my self-care. Believe me, just sitting and reading a book goes a long way to get me through most things – loneliness, sadness, anger and frustration. Just hanging out with the characters in a book can really make a whole lot of things better for awhile. I’m going to catch you up on on the books I’ve been reading for the past month. Hopefully they catch your attention and you want to snag them for yourselves. Find me on Goodreads and check out all my bookshelves, or check out the Rhe’s Bookshelf tab up top for more. You can snag your own copies of all the books listed below by clicking on the image.


After a decade of making it on her own, Irish immigrant, Blayne MacCaffrey is determined to return to her homeland and make peace with her father, who hasn’t forgiven her for deserting the family—for what she believed was true love. Her ticket home is in the bag with the launch of the Archer Conservation Park of Cape Van Buren. Only she must partner with the devastatingly sexy heartbreaker who first awakened her desires and unequivocally destroyed her dreams years ago.


This is the second book in the On the Cape series and I’m so in love! I plowed through this book. I can guess what is coming in the series and I already can not wait to see where it goes. These are such good characters, and just the fact that you’re dealing with old love, moving on, not moving on….you guys this book gave me some serious tingles. MK Meredith delivers yet again with this sweet, yet sultry, small town romance. The main character Blayne has such spice to her, and I loved her as a character even in the first book in this series. And since I’m such a book cover snob I can’t not comment about how much I love it.


When you read this book, you will make many assumptions.
You will assume you are reading about a jealous wife and her obsession with her replacement.
You will assume you are reading about a woman about to enter a new marriage with the man she loves.
You will assume the first wife was a disaster and that the husband was well rid of her.
You will assume you know the motives, the history, the anatomy of the relationships.
Assume nothing.

You guys, this book….whoa is almost all I can say. My friend got it from the library and read it in like half a second. Then we passed it around to each other and we all read this thing in two days. It is incredible and the first secular fiction (non romance) that I’ve read in a while that makes you obsessed.It sucks you in from the very beginning with paragraphs that keep you on your toes. It is incredible writing and deserves every accolade its getting right now. Greer and Sarah bring you into the story of Vanessa and Nellie and you don’t know who to feel sorry for! I literally can’t even write any more because I will give it away. This page-turning, psychological thriller is worth every second of your time.  And once you read it, send me a message so we can talk about it….because I really can’t even properly review it here guys. Must read! Go. Now.



Mason Hall, Navy SEAL, knows all about difficult assignments, but his current mission is one for the record books. Not only must he find a wife—and get her pregnant—or forfeit the ranch his family has prized for generations, he must also convince his three brothers to marry, too—before the year is up. Who knew one city girl and three wayward brothers could put up such a fight?

I’m a Cora Seton fan, and this is such a fun series to add to your list. It is semi-steamy, with a couple sexual scenes, but doesn’t sacrifice the story for that. Of course it is sort of unbelievable right…but who reads romance all the time for “this could totally happen to me!” Its sweet, sad, fun and even made me laugh. It’s everything you want in an easy to read, sweet romance. At the beginning of the story Mason is leaving the military, so this is not a military romance in that you deal with anything about him serving. In fact that is almost non-existent in the story. I would read it again and that, to me, says a lot of about a book. Another A+ from Cora Seton!


Pepper Blue wants a baby. Forget the husband. She’s better at training men to be good husbands for other women than she is at getting one herself, so she’s doing this on her own.
But she hasn’t exactly shared the news with her family, and they’re determined to find her a date to the next family wedding. A date that won’t leave with one of her sisters or cousins. This time.
Which means Pepper Blue needs a fake boyfriend. A fake boyfriend that she has no chance of actually falling in love with. A fake boyfriend like her obnoxious neighbor.

Number 6 in the Misfits Bride of Bliss Series…and please don’t ever stop Jamie!!!! I still want more! I love this series, and this one has quickly topped out at my favorite one yet! What I particularly love about this book, and the series in general, is that it pays homage to the other characters in the books before this one, the town is its own character and and that never disappears. Jamie Farrell takes you into Bliss, a town that seems both completely normal and also completely ridiculous…never could be real in a million years. I’m not sure how she does it, but each time Ms. Farrell gives me exactly what I want in a women’s fiction, sweet romance, with a little spice (pun intended) and a small town I want to move to like yesterday. Tony is actually the best and one of my favorite of the Farrell hunks, country singer Billy aside. Because what could top a Luke Bryan romance knock-off. No one, in case you were wondering. I’ve reviewed a ton of Jamie’s novels on my bookshelf tab, and you can find links to this book and my other favorites under “Favorite Things” on the side bar!
