It was the perfect evening to commit a crime.


my thoughts

Jacqueline and Don are a perfectly adorable pair! Much like The Kiss Dare, this sassy short packs a storytelling punch! While I don’t advocate law-breaking, kisses are another matter entirely! The Kiss Thief is the perfect length (three chapters precisely) for rereading! These short stories from Jessica Kate are hugely enjoyable and I hope she continues to share them with the world! I love all the Aussie slang and, of course, the kisses!

I received an ebook copy of this title through the author’s newsletter. The opinions expressed are my own.

  1. If Lucy Maxwell had learned one thing. It was that when life appeared to be going smoothly, it was time to listen closely for the other boot to drop.

  2. Happy Friday! I’m sharing from Walkabout, by James Vance Marshall on my blog today. Here is the first line from chapter 2:

    “The advance guard of sunlight filtered into the gully, turning the night to powdery opaqueness.”


  3. What a first line!
    The book I shared on my blog this week is Veiled in Smoke by Jocelyn Green but the book I’m just about to start is The Printed Letter Bookshop by Katherine Reay so I’ll share that first line here: “People parted around us in the courtyard.” Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time! 🙂
