I'm a retired chemist and stay at home mom. I read a wide variety of books, mostly fiction with romantic elements. I love PNR, UF, Sci-Fi, fantasy, mystery, romance, health, and finance books.

Miss Whittier Makes a List - Carla Kelly 2.5/5; 3 stars; C+I enjoy a swashbuckling historical romance and this one had some great moments. Unfortunately, although I liked many of the character I couldn't quite suspend belief to the point that I could buy into the HEA. A 17 year old Quaker girl and a lifetime career Navy man just couldn't work for me to that extent. I didn't dislike the story but it didn't resonate with me the way most of Ms. Kelly's stories do. For a fun, fantastical swashbuckling tale (that also requires suspension of belief) I'd prefer[bc:The Iron Rose|891792|The Iron Rose (Dante Pirates, #2)|Marsha Canham|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1179237788s/891792.jpg|877032] or [bc:The Charm School|853322|The Charm School (Calhoun Chronicles #1)|Susan Wiggs|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1331657236s/853322.jpg|344016]
