Charleston Green by Stephanie Alexander – Book Review

Charleston Green by Stephanie Alexander is one of the wonderful books I read in the recent times. I can only imagine how beautiful this new color Charleston Green is after reading this book.

Tipsy Collins is a beautiful soul, an artist and strong and independent at heart. Tipsy arrives at her new home with her three kids to live at a new house after going through a rough divorce. She manages her work at her best friend’s art gallery, paints and also takes care of her kids all by herself. 
Tipsy gets to put her supernatural skill to use to help two new ghost friends that she found at the new house. Jane and Henry who have been stuck at that home for a long time find answers to the questions that have been hanging between them since their deaths. 

The climax twist was unexpected. The pace is excellent. The story is witty, lovely, romantic and awesome. I must admit this is the funniest ghost story, didn’t terrify me at all and made me think I might need a ghost friend for myself. 

I don’t want to mention Tipsy’s ex-husband Ayers whom I thoroughly hated while reading the story. I also liked how the author used the divorce law in North Carolina and certain other states to explain the troubles faced by many women who tolerate emotional and physical abuse. I’m sure this story definitely gives hope to many a women to stay strong and do what their heart encourages them to do. Just stand up for yourselves! Author has smartly put the marital issues from a century ago and the present day in one story and takes the reader on a wonderful fictional ride.

I received the copy of Charleston Green from NetGalley for an honest review. Thank you BooksGoSocial for sharing the copy with me. The book is going to be published on 14th of April, 2020. I know you all are stuck at homes quarantining. Don’t miss a fun ride to Charleston through this book. You can buy the book here

Avery grew up in a military family and traveled extensively. Fortunately, her books could travel anywhere with her. She adored romances as a teen and read whatever ones she could get her hands on. When she was sixteen, she decided to create her own love story, inspired by all the authors she’d been reading. She discovered her passion for writing and continued building her craft throughout the years while traveling as a military wife. Avery finally settled in a small town in Maine and decided to actively pursue her dream of becoming a published author, to share her stories with others in hopes they would love them as much as she did.

She’s served tables, worked drive-thru, modeled, attended AIMT in Kailua to learn massage therapy and energy work, even owned her own shop, making candles, soap, and other natural beauty products. She’s dabbled in a variety of things, but her love for a good romance never wavered. 

Avery’s usually hanging out with her family, drinking coffee, and listening to music. If you don’t find her there, she’s staring out the window, swept up in another world. Avery feels strongly that every romantic journey she creates should have elements of adventure, sweet banter, danger, tension, gripping content —and of course, all that steamy romance! Her desire is to bring the reader along for a wild ride that leaves them breathless.

The Playboy Next Door by Sandra A. Sigfusson – Book Review

The Playboy Next Door by Sandra A. Sigfusson is a romantic comedy that will refresh the reader’s mind. This is the first book I’m reading from the author and I must say she is very engaging. I received this book in exchange for a honest review.

Brandon and Rachel who share a duplex house meet for the first time in a very strange situation. This leads Rachel to think that Brandon is extremely cocky because of his model-like body and looks. Brandon falls for Rachel almost immediately. 

Their relationship doesn’t cross the friendship stature initially because of Brandon’s playboy nature and Rachel’s relationship with her boyfriend Kurt. But when two people are destined to be together, nothing can stop them from falling hard and fast in love. The story is about the series of events that bring Brandon and Rachel together. And let me mention Brigit and Barkley the two pet dogs of Brandon and Rachel who are in love with each other, too just like their owners.

It’s a very easy read. There are some hot erotic scenes which will make your day. So, if you are in for an entertaining book, go for this one.
