Can't believe were at the end of 2020, but I'm happy for it! For the next few days I'm featuring my favorite reads of 2020 (not necessarily published in 2020) starting with the Contemporary Romance & Romantic Suspense categories.
I'm linking up with Top Ten Tuesday today because the topic is Top Reads for 2020 so it works along nicely.
Favorite Contemporary Romance/Women's Fiction of 2020:
Click on covers for Goodreads link:
Secrets From a Happy Marriage by Maisey Yates:
A heartfelt story about being yourself, accepting past mistakes, forgiving yourself and moving on. Of course there was romance!
The Reckless Oath We Made:
A hard book to categorize it was so original, but it boiled down to family love, bad choices and falling for the last person you'd expect.
Her Christmas Cowboy by Jessica Clare:
Love these shy Wyoming cowboys with a fierce protective streak!
In a Holidaze by Christina Lauren
Dreamy, steamy romance in a magical wintery/holiday setting.
Beach Read by Emily Henry:
So much fun, full of soul-searching, longing, and lusty encounters, but also serious with some heavy emotions. So much more than just a "beach read".
Cowboy Come Home by Carly Bloom:
Well-written with just the right amount of sizzle! And omg was it laugh-out-loud funny in parts!
Favorite Romantic Suspense of 2020:
Unforgiven by Jay Crownover:
Unrequited love, mystery, and danger. Loved the whole series!
Mackenzie's Mountain by Linda Howard:
Few do romantic suspense as well as Linda Howard and this one is an oldie (written in 1989!) but goodie!
After Sundown by Linda Howard & Linda Jones:
Yes, another Linda Howard! Read this one at the beginning of the pandemic. Riveting with just the right amount of urgency without sending me into a panic. More end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it story than post-apocalyptic and a little outside the box as far as romantic suspense goes, but I wasn't sure where to put this one, lol.
A Change of View by Freya Barker:
Mature romance, bossy, protective alpha hero with a big heart. Sweet, sassy heroine. The rustic lake setting was just a cherry on top for me!
My favorite Historical, Fantasy/Urban Fantasy and Mystery/Thrillers are next.
