'Netgalley ARC provided by The Publisher in exchange for an unbiased review'Dawn i struggled to give this 3 stars because its not worth that much but. Why do certain authors/writers keep on making these grown/matured female leads in their storyline so horny and irresponsible about life. In addition their leading ladies are mostly sexy,beautiful,very pretty and not the average looking women of today's society--plus what turn me off from this book was the writing was very disappointing to say the [...]
I read most of Karis Walsh's books, and found them re-readable. Love on Tap is not among them. The story itself is well-written, but I didn't care for the main characters much, and found the ending inconclusive in a way that I am not at all convinced in their happy-ever-after. To me personally, the main characters' dilemmas were neither credible nor interesting, and changes of direction in decision making were too fast and without the right reasons. There was not one secondary character worth me [...]
Detailed score: 2.75Love on Tap has a really strong opening third but, sadly, loses its way in the middle and never recovers. It's like the author had a strong idea for the premise for the novel, and knew where she wanted her characters to end up - and the lessons she wanted them to learn - but there wasn't quite enough gas in the tank for the journey.I think because there wasn't quite enough meat to the story, the pacing was a bit off. (view spoiler)[ eg one minute Tace hasn't sold a keg of bee [...]
I received this book from NetGalley in return for a fair review. This was a relatively enjoyable story. I admit to being a bit hesitant to try it based on having read A Little Bit of Spice by Georgia Beers, where I found beer brewing to be fairly boring. That's not the issue here.The issue is that there's a lot of 'telling', in that even though the leads should be together quite a lot due to their domestic arrangement, it feels like there are only a handfull of scenes where they actually interac [...]
Review for NetgalleyThere is very little substance to this book. All the characters from the main to the secondary are flat and one dimensional. I was unable to visualise any aspect of these characters. The secondary characters, like the best friends show up about 2 or 3 times in the book to say a sentence or 2 then disappear. The romance between Tace and Berit is just as one dimensional. I didn't believe their feelings because there was very little build up in their relationship and most of the [...]
*I received this book from NetGalley in return for a fair review.*My fourth book by this author. This is one of those books I really wished we had half stars here on GoodReads. Also, fair warning, but I appear to be an outlier with this book. What with how I ended up, rating wise, at least, compared to everyone else who has read this book.CharactersThe book stars Tace Lomond (Stacy Lombard, her sister couldn’t make the s sound, so she became Tace), and Berit Katsaros. Tace is a clerk at a depa [...]
This is written well enough, but it is somehow trying too hard when it really doesn't need to. That leads to a feeling of inauthenticity in the relationship between the two main characters, which is frustrating because there's quite a bit of potential here.
Love on Tap is written by an author that I almost always love to read. While Love on Tap was well written, and easy to read I didn’t love it. The beginning was a little too slow for me. While the main characters were well written, they didn’t appeal to me as a reader. I am sure others will disagree but for me I wanted more. This does not take away from the overall story though. Tace has a huge chip on her shoulder, and throughout the book this improves, but she appears to have deep self-este [...]
Archaeologist Berit is forced to take an interim teaching job in a college while she recovers after a serious accident. Here she meets Tace, her landlord. Tace has her own baggage, a job she doesn't really like and now she has been landed with a failing microbrewery. I enjoyed this book, there isn't much drama, just a story about two women trying to find the right paths for themselves. Berit struggles to think of what to do if she isn't on a dig and Tace is so used to looking out for her sibling [...]
I liked this book, I really did. There was something about it that pulled me in and held my attention. Karis Walsh is an expert in creating interesting characters that often have to face some type of adversity. I love that she gives them strength to persevere in spite of this. Stacy “Tace” Lomond has a giant chip on her shoulder, Stacy had to become a parent early in life, her mother left her family and forced her to step up to the mother role for her two younger siblings. Gone were the drea [...]
Tace and Berit's journey was an emotional rollercoaster which at times made me wish I could shake some sense into Tace and her low self-esteem. But in the end it turned into a good story of success in finding oneself, love of life and love for another.
I have mix feeling for this one I could not identify with any of the characters and the whole thing just has me skipping pages to get to the end. I've read this author other books and like them but this one just not appeal to me.Arc given by NetGalley for a honest review
Berit Katsaros, an archaelogist, is injured during a dig site in Peru and is forced take a break by taking a teaching position at Whitman for a year. Meanwhile, Stacy "Tace" Lomond is given a failing microbrewery in exchange of paying off her brother's gambling debts. When Berit arrives in Walla Walla, she finds out Tace is her landlord. I enjoyed learning about beer brewing and found that Tace's newly found passion about it was infectious. I thought it was fascinating the way the author describ [...]
Five Stars: f/f romanceI was sent this book by Inked Rainbow Reads in exchange for an honest opinion.This is the second book I have read by this author and it certainly won't be my last. Ms Walsh is one of the few authors who can write a truly great and interesting love story without the need of a secondary story line or plot.Two very different main characters, both entrenched in the lives they lead. It is only after they meet that they begin to question what it is they want and need. Both woman [...]
3.5 starsI received a copy of this book from Inked Rainbow Reads in return for an honest review.I have to admit to being predisposed to loving this book. I've really enjoyed all the other Karis Walsh books I've read. But this book was a bit of a disappointment for me. Her writing is just as stellar as usual, with rounded characters and a tight plot. I think the thing that I didn't like was a feeling of distance from the two main characters. It almost seemed as if they themselves weren't fully en [...]
This is an honest review thanks to NetGalley. I was disappointed with this book through the entire thing, the idea of the brewery I loved. I loved the passion of Trace and her mounting knowledge of brewing and her transformation through the entire book. I did not like Berit, I tired but her attitude throughout the entire book made me want to not finish it. Other than my dislike for Berit I didn't like how far ahead the story jumped multiple times. I wanted to travel through their story not find [...]
I really like Karis Walsh as a writer; the prose and structure, not to mention the style, of Sea Glass Inn prompted me to read some of her other works and, on the whole, I enjoy them. There was something lacking about this novel, however, and I'm still not entirely sure what it was. I felt like a lot of the information about each of the main characters was given in overly long narrative sections, rather than given in other, more interesting ways. It actually pulled me away from the developing re [...]
I was really enthusiastic about the premise! Archaeologist and microbrewery owner F/F? Yes, please!Unfortunately, the book started to fall flat after the first third. Berit and Tace's chemistry was lacking for me, although I really liked both of the women as individuals. Just together, I don't know, something was missing.The book is a quick read, but the story pacing is slow. I read it in one sitting mostly because I was worried I wouldn't come back to it for a long time if I set it down.***e-AR [...]
While I was able to finish the story it did feel lacking on many levels. I didn't feel invested in any of the characters which is the saddest part. While you get a lot of information about both of them it felt very flat. There was a lot of telling me about them but nothing that made me feel a part of them or their lives. A simple romance that starts off with promise and ends with a HFN because I'm just not sure that it's an HEA for these characters.
I thought the ending was rushed and that there could've been more expansion in the character development areas. Just felt like there were gaps to me.
This book is firmly in the "just ok" category for me. I appreciated the concept of two people from two completely different walks of life being forced into lines of work neither thought they wanted. I was also excited to see this story unfold with the brewery as a backdrop--since that's the implication of the title and cover. However, other than name dropping varietals and a very cursory description of some of the steps taken to produce beer, there's very little in the way of actual action in th [...]
Stacy feels inadequate due to her lack of education. She can't stand the college kids and the college itself in her town. When she ends up renting some rooms to injured archaeologist, Berit, she begins to see life has more to offer her. When her flaky gambler of a brother lands her with the running of a brewery he won in a poker game she could never imagine the changes it would bring to her life. Berit is in a wheelchair while she recovers from an accident at a dig site. She agrees to teach for [...]
Great book.Love on Tap is a great book. The story is interesting. I really liked the parts about the beer brewing. I was hoping for a happy ending. Glad to see it all worked out.
