Sincerely, Carter - Whitney Gracia Williams

Sincerely, Carter is a fabulous contemporary romance by Whitney Gracia Williams.  Ms. Williams has delivered a book that is well-written and loaded with amazing characters.  The only thing I didn't care for about this book is the alternating first-person point of view format.  Carter and Arizona have been best friends since childhood.  Their story is laugh-out-loud funny with plenty of drama and sizzle thrown in.  I enjoyed this book from cover to cover and would gladly read more from Whitney Gracia Williams in the future.

Meh

Returning for Valentine's - Victoria Pinder, Greta Buckle

Returning For Valentine's by Victoria Pinder is a quick read, perfect for those with limited reading time.  This is my first book by Victoria Pinder and frankly, I'm a little disappointed.  Beth and Nathan's story is full of drama, angst, spice and a bit of humor.  It is choppy and disjointed though, not the smooth read I expected.  I will reserve judgment though on Ms. Pinder's writing abilities and try one of her longer books.  I've heard from authors that it's hard to write a book this short.
