These are the reviews I currently have pending. In general, I employ a “First In, First Out” philosophy for how I order the release of my reviews. I strive to get new releases reviewed and posted on release day, whenever possible. This means that, on occasion, my queue may change, in order to accommodate a new release. There may also be other circumstances that arise on occasion.
Here are the reviews I have queued up:
A Swan’s Sweet Song by J. Arlene Culiner
The instant Sherry Valentine and Carston Hewlett meet, there’s desire and fascination in the air…but they’re complete opposites.
Smart-talking Sherry fought her way up from poverty to stardom as a country music singer. Now, she’s ever in the limelight, ever surrounded by clamoring fans, male admirers and paparazzi, and her spangled cowboy boots carry her all across the country, from one brightly lit stage to the next.
A renowned but reclusive playwright, Carston cherishes his freedom, the silence of his home in the woods and his solitary country walks. Any long-term commitment is obviously out of the question: how about a quick and passionate fling?
But when their names are linked in the scandal press, Sherry’s plans to become an actress are revealed. Is their budding relationship doomed?
