Mostly Romance. Contemporary, Paranormal, Historical and Romantic Suspense. Also a little Urban Fantasy and Mystery.
A Penny's Worth - Nancy DeRosa As she approaches 40, Penny realizes that all of her dreams have rotted of the vine. Her job is mundane and tedious; there isn't a love in her life and there are no prospects on the horizon; she doesn't have friends; and even her own family don't think she has much potential. Determined to turn her life around, she quits her job as a school nurse, and manages to find a job as a nurse in the oncology ward at her local hospital. Over time she manages to build up her self-esteem but for every step forward she makes, her mother is determined to drag her two steps back.A Penny's Worth is at it's core a Cinderella story, complete with wicked step-sisters and a prince. It's an adult fairy tale about a woman who learns to value herself, and in doing that earns the respect of those around her. It's not overly complicated and always manages to stay light, fluffy and up beat. Many thanks to Fingerpress and Netgalley for providing me with this ARC
