Her romantic stories are so surreal, you can ride the wave with the characters. You can tell Regina is a seasoned author, her stories are detailed and riveting.

I followed the four ladies, Elaine, Tawny, Grace, Steph, let’s not forget Stony the husky and Lula the cat, their a big part of the story. The ladies have been there for each other ever since they met at the pawn shop. They make me wish I had met ladies like them in my life. Life isn’t always easy, but with friends like these four you would always have a heart and shoulder to cry on. They have their moments they want to tear their hair out because of each other, believe me. Elaine has a saying ” not my monkeys, not my circus”. If you read the series you’d see. True friends always work it out. This is the third book, on this journey they open a Bed&Breakfast in the snowy state of Maine, mind you none of them have experience in the Bed&breakfast area. They were all ready for a change in life, to leave Cherry Ridge behind, or are they? Elaine sold her gym to Arden (her ex husband) and the house, the ladies left their jobs, the journey begins. These ladies don’t disappoint, their adventure on the had me laughing my butt off most of the time, feeling bad other times. I live in UpState NY, Maine is one of our favorite vacation spots so this book had me right away. I really enjoy the friendship between these sassy, friendly, adventurous, all around wonderful ladies. Wait until you read what they call the Bed&Breakfast!!! Totally fits them. The people they meet, some had me in stitches, others are the men they meet. Join the journey with these wonderful, sassy, fun ladies! Can they make it all work out, or will they fall apart? Hmmmmmm.

Enemy, Friend, Lover? Wild Goose Chase by Jan Romes

Another hit by this fantastic author! Olivia Pence and Dezz Casey both grew up in a small town in Iowa. Olivia is a word nerd with not many friends. Dezz Casey was also a nerd, you’d think they’d become friends, but all through school Dezz made fun of Olivia, always in competition with her. Olivia left for New York City to work for a magazine called Brillance, Dezz followed her. She didn’t know what to make of that. Dezz is looking a lot different from their school days when he was a skinny geek, he now was six foot of man candy. He’s such a pain in her butt, they’re always trying to up one another at work. The constant rivalry between them was getting to the boss and killing the atmosphere around the office. Their boss was sick of it and sent them on a two week journey to write about serendipitous things. Will their time away from each other ease their rivalry or flare up something else? The humor is off the wall in this book. Will the romance this author is known for creep into the story? These two characters are so much alike, they throw stones at each other constantly! Great read!
