Summary

Sarah was the daughter of a farmer. Her mother had the best pies in the village and she needed more blueberries. As she walked in the forest, Sarah recalled the stories of the injured Duke. He owned these lands, but hid inside his home. Edmund was not happy about being the Duke. His father and brother died in an accident and he was left with the estate and the responsibilities of his new identity. In order to produce an heir, he needed a suitable lady to be his wife. No one would be able to be with a scarred man like him….

Then he found Sarah in the forest with an injured foot…..

Conclusion

This story reminded me a little bit like Beauty and the Beast, with Sarah being the Beauty and Edmund the Beast. It was a heartwarming story.

Book Review: Dark Desires

Image Courtesy of Amazon

Summary

It was a miracle that Darcie made it into the desolate city of London. It was 1828 and the world was not kind to women. But she was desperate and must find her sister for help. As she walked up the steps to the infamous ladies of the night, house of Mrs. Feather, she was not sure what she would see. She hadn’t seen her sister for a long time. Originally, she was going to be a maid in the house. Unfortunately, a male client of the house made an inappropriate comment towards Darcie. So Abigail (Mrs. Feather), told her to find Dr. Damien Cole and work for him instead.

She warned Darcie to be aware of the doctor and to stay away from his businesses. Be very careful….

Murders were happening throughout the city and Darcie was in the middle of it all….

Conclusion

This was a murder mystery and romance combined into one. There were some steamy scenes, but most of the storyline focused on the historical side of the medical world back then. Great story!

Summary

The Great War was over and Emmie reluctantly had to spend her summer with Dessa, the prim and proper family friend. Emmie was looking forward to riding her newly fixed up motorcycle and to get involved in the suffragette movement.

Suddenly, Miss Letty, the lady who was leading the movement was found dead by Dessa in her home. That was the first corpse that the girls encountered…. They suspected murder, but by who?

Conclusion

I enjoyed historical novels like this. It talked about how much resistance that women faced in order to get to vote!

Vendor Feature: OiSO Kimchi Cafe

At first, the name could be misleading, but believe me, the menu had more than kimchi! Thank you, OiSO Kimchi Cafe for the invite!

Who is OiSO Kimchi Cafe?

1) What was your background?

I started restaurant called ‘Damso’ 12 yrs ago. Damso expanded to 3 different locations throughout years.

2) Why and when did you start your business?

Last year, I decided to sell it all because, I wanted start something new, simple and easy. That led to Oiso.

3) What is special about your place?

Oiso is technically all the core essential of what Damso meant to be. I am taking minimalist and simplistic approach with Oiso as far as branding and culinary direction goes. However, that doesn’t mean we cheap out our ingredients and product. We only use freshest and best ingredients available with best cooking technique to our culunary knowledge and arsenal with reasonabley priced menu and portion. Thus easier approach for people with different budget and standard.

4) What else do you want to share?


As for me, I have been cooking for last 20 yrs already! I worked for many different high end local hotels and fine dining restaurants to Michelin star restaurants before I opened Damso.

Book Review: Murder Afloat

Image Courtesy of Amazon

Summary

This trip was supposed to be their honeymoon voyage on the Titanic’s maiden voyage. Sadly, Lottie had to fulfill her dying husband’s wish and travel alone to the United States. As an avid reader of crime novels and the daughter of a Scotland Yard inspector, Lottie knew there was trouble as she began to board the great Titanic. She just couldn’t imagine how bad things would turn out….

Conclusion

Knowing some of the history of the Titanic, allowed me to really imagine and picture the scenes. I enjoyed the independence and how strong willed Lottie was as a lady of that decade. Great cozy!
