A Case of Serendipity by K.J. Farnham

Hello sunnies! The lovely K.J Farnham send me a copy of this book and I dove into it as soon as I could. Funny story: I had to google serendipity before hand! 😉
In case I am not alone: "the occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way"
I gotta say...clever title! 

The Blurb:

Ruth Bateman is at her wit’s end. If Bucky’s Beans doesn’t stop spamming her phone with discount codes for frou-frou java concoctions, she’s going to flip. After multiple failed attempts to unsubscribe, Ruth takes to the company’s Facebook page to vent her frustration over the never-ending texts.


When attorney, Henry Mancuso, stumbles upon Ruth’s complaint, he has no idea that a simple Facebook scroll is going to change his life. Now, he has to get Ruth to agree to a class action lawsuit when she’s just looking for some peace on her mobile device—not a drawn-out case against a coffeehouse giant.

As Ruth and Henry battle the legal waters, a friendship full of fun and spontaneity blooms. But could something more be brewing between these two and this coffeehouse case? 



My thoughts: 3 Stars

Overall I think the book had a cute and fun set up and a very charming romance.
As the title suggests Ruth and Henry's paths cross by chance and they continue to bump into each other by chance afterwards too. They were perfect for each other in every way and I was rooting for them from the beginning.
Ruth was a quirky character I would love to have as a friend in real life. She felt real and that is always a plus! 
Henry also felt very real. He was the perfect example of a workaholic and I couldn't help but laugh every time Ruth found a way to lightly poke at him for it.
They are both kind-hearted people that deserved the love they found. Everything about them being together made sense. The humour and banter between them was flawlessly written as well and I looked forward to every dialogue/email between them. 
I said it before and I will again: K.J. Farnham is a great writer!

As much as I enjoyed their love story though there were negatives: It moved at a turtle's pace; it was very slow. Things got repeated a lot (specially about the case against the coffee house) and the romance didn't get anywhere until about 50% into the book. It often felt like the romance was secondary to the court case and that frustrated me. But, the second half of the book was a lot better than the first so it ended in a very good note.
Go Read!

The Last Tiara by M.J. Rose

The Last Tiara  by M.J. Rose is inspired by a real missing Russian Crown Jewel. She explains in an article to The Adventurine  how she stumbled upon an NPR article about the disappearance of missing Russian Crown Jewels that to date, have not been found. Captivated by it and how such amazing items could simply disappear she decides her new novel will tell the story of the lost tiara.  It is apparent throughout the book that M.J. Rose researched well the Romanov Jewels, the Russian Evolution, and especially the impact it had on the Russian people. Although she never goes into details, the poverty and difficulties the people experienced at the time are carefully and respectfully mentioned.  The book is told from two different perspectives, that of mother and daughter. The alternating chapters reveal Sofiya's life in Russia from 1915 through 1922, and Isobelle's in 1948 Manhattan, US. First we have Isabelle, an young architect in post World War II Manhattan . While renovating her

How to Catch a Duke (Rogues to Riches #6) by Grace Burrowes [ALC review]

How to Catch a Duke, Grace Burrowes I've been waiting for this book for sometime. Lord Stephen Wentworth's past was mentioned many times in previous books and I was hoping Grace Burrowes would give him a happy ending. After everything he went through in life he most certainly deserved it.  As book opening goes, the one to How to Catch a Duke  had me dying of curiosity instantly: "I have come to ask you to kill me, my lord." Miss Abigail Abbott is no damsel in distress, but she also knows when she can't handle an enemy on her own. She believes the only solution to her problems is to disappear and she trusts Lord Stephen will help her. Lord Stephen is a juxtaposition... charming and brutish, sad and happy, caring and ruthless, the most intelligent and most clueless... Although you don't have to have read any of the previous books in this series to enjoy this one, I would advise you to do so. I think Stephen's personality traits and past will be more touching
