Source: ARC galley via author
      Set in modern-day Scotland and laced with adventure, romance, and hope, What Lies Between reminds us that love and belonging are often discovered in the most unexpected places. Trust has never come easily to Ellie Jameson. A broken past taught her that self-reliance is the only option—no one sticks around for the long haul. When a fateful letter arrives with news of an unexpected inheritance, she sees a silver lining in the tragedy that seems to follow her. Anxious to leave American city life for the rugged Scottish Highlands, she sets off to claim her fate in a whirlwind of determination. Captivated by the land of stunning lochs, fiery whisky, and a particularly charming Highland local, it seems things may finally be turning around . . .But nothing could have prepared Ellie for what awaits at the Glenbroch estate, where she soon discovers very little is as it seems. The rugged, romantic Highlands harbor old secrets and vengeful enemies, entangling her in a web of lies and betrayal. As the line between ally and enemy blurs, Ellie is in danger of forfeiting her inheritance—as well as her heart.


      February was a pretty busy month for me. First up this month, I of course participated in SWOONUARY! It was so much fun reading the lovey-dovey books with the other Bookish Groupies! Here are the swoon worthy books I read:

*For some reason blogger wouldn't let me put pictures in my post, that's why I'm so late. 

1. Bad Romeo by Leisa Rayven 

I rated this book 5/5 stars. I loved the whole theater theme and the characters. I did think the main character was slightly irritating from time to time but I still recommend it. There will be a review soon! 

2. Never Never by Colleen Hoover 

Another 5/5 starred this month! I loved the mystery in the story. My favorite character was definitely Charlie, he was so sweet and cute gah! I was so on edge through this super short read. Colleen Hoover is one of my favorite authors. I cannot wait for the sequel in May after that ending. 

3. Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover 
I was on a bit of a Hoover-High if you will. I seriously can't decide but this may be my favorite CoHo book? I literally couldn't put it down. I loved the soundtrack that went with it. I'm still jamming to it! I really need to get to reading the novella. Being a lover of music, this book spoke to me. LOVEDDDDD IT!!! Review soon. 
4. What I Thought Was True by Huntley Fitzpatrick

Ms. Fitzpatrick has made a spot on my favorite author list for sure. Her other novel, My Life Next Door, is my all time favorite contemporary. This book was way up there. CASS SOMERS CAN WE JUST?! Seriously loved everything about it. I recommend it to everyone. Definitely watch out for a full review. 

5.To All The Boys I Loved Before by Jenny Han 

I love Jenny Han. This book was sooooo cute! I was super surprised of how things worked out, totally unexpected! Laura Jean is the coolest name though. Josh was such a cutie. This was a super amazing and short contemporary. Look out for a review as well.
