Welcome to “Babbling Book Reviews”! This page was long overdue for some updating.

Here you will find reviews that are:

  • wildly unhelpful okay, maybe a little helpful
  • possibly full of spoilers I try to avoid them as much as possible. Really, I do.
  • very dull indeed Slightly more interesting than an Army regulation.  Trust me on this one, people.

Egads! What’s with all the Romances?? I’ve been participating in the Harlequin Book Challenge the last few years and I’ve accumulated quite a few.  Reading the reviews of fellow bloggers has introduced me to several authors/sub-genres that I may not have picked up myself.  Participating in the challenge also got me interested in blogging and I decided to post old and new reviews on my own little blog.

On the bookshelfStar Wars (which I’m woefully behind), Georgette Heyer, mysteries, romantic suspense, sci-fi, and fantasy. In any of the genres, romance or romantic elements; and under fantasy, it can include epic or urban.

    I’m trying to get some early buzz going for HOPE’S FOLLY, the next book set in the Gabriel’s Ghost/Dock Five universe, so I’ve done up PDF ARCs for special people, like you. 😉 These are electronic and have NOT been though copy edits though they have been through substantive edits (ie: all plots points are fixed but there might be a misplaced comma or ten…). The book’s not been through GALLEY edits yet which means if a blogger or reviewer can get me a short blurb, it could make it to the front pages of the actual book (that doesn’t mean the review has to be “out” at that time…it can be posted Dec or Jan—though earlier the better.)

    I’ve been told Borders stores will be doing ENDCAPS for me on this book (FIRST TIME!!!!!) so I’d really like to get bloggers and internet reviewers on board as early as possible.

    Do you have time to read/review an electronic PDF of FOLLY?

    Here is a blurb to give you a feel of what HOPE’S FOLLY is about 😉

    It’s an impossible mission on a derelict ship called HOPE’S FOLLY. A man who feels he can’t love. A woman who believes she’s unlovable. And an enemy who will stop at nothing to crush them both.

    Admiral Philip Guthrie is in an unprecedented position: on the wrong end of the law, leading a rag-tag band of rebels against the oppressive Imperial forces. Or would be, if he can reach his command ship—the intriguingly named Hope’s Folly—alive. Not much can rattle Philip’s legendary cool—but the woman who helps him foil an assassination attempt on Kirro Station will. She’s the daughter of his best friend and first commander—a man who died while under Philip’s command, and whose death is on Philip’s conscience.

    Rya Bennton has been in love with Philip Guthrie since she was a girl. But can her childhood fantasies survive an encounter with the hardened man, and newly-minted rebel leader, who it seems has just become her new commanding officer? And will she still be willing follow him through the jaw of hell once she learns the truth about her father’s death?

    Thanks for all your support of my books! ~Linnea
