Authors Corner: Cindy Roland Anderson

Welcome to Author's Corner hosted by Bookworm NationKatie's Clean Book Collection and KJ's Book Nook! Once a month we will feature either a favorite author or new to us author. We will share the author's bio, one of our favorite books of theirs and a review. Each of us will be featuring a different author each month so there will also be links to each of our posts.

For this month's Author's Corner I am going to choose...

Cindy Roland Anderson

"I write clean, contemporary romance with a combination of humor, romantic tension and some pretty great kissing scenes. I'm lucky to be married to my best friend. I love being a mother and have five amazing children. Our family has expanded by adding a son-in-law, a daughter-in-law, and four adorable grandchildren. I'm a registered nurse and work in the newborn intensive care unit. I love to read, almost as much as I love writing. And I love chocolate, probably a little too much."

It works out nicely that I decided to spotlight Cindy on a day she has a new book out! I just happened to finish reading it and I loved it! I've really enjoyed all of Cindy's books so it was an easy choice to me to choose her as an author to spotlight. She writes fun, clean contemporary romance. The first book I read of Cindy's was her fun romantic adventure, Discovery Sophie. The cover was what drew me in initially, but I ended up really enjoying the storytelling as well. Cindy was a new-to-me-author at the time, but after reading her first couple books I was hooked. I've been able to get to know Cindy behind the scenes as we worked on a project together awhile back. I really came to admire her and getting to know her outside of her books was a lot of fun. She's an author I would really like to meet in person one day. 

One thing I love about her books are all the cute covers! It was hard narrowing down a favorite, since I enjoy them all... but I went with Under a Georgia Moon! This was a super cute and fun read, it also kicks off the Georgia Moon series, so it's a good place to start if you're wanting to check out her books. 
Under a Georgia MoonAddie Heywood thought she was doing okay after her fiancĂ© dumped her just weeks before their wedding, claiming he’d found someone else more compatible with his health food tastes. But when he marries the other woman three months later, Addie needs to get away. Leaving her home in Idaho, she escapes to Mitchel Creek, Georgia to visit her Aunt Janie. Chase Nichols isn’t looking for love. His dream is to trade his computer mouse for his guitar and make it big in the country music world. If he can land a job in Nashville, he might have a shot at getting discovered. His plans get derailed when he does his neighbor a favor and picks up her niece, Addie, at the airport. Things get even more complicated when his ex-girlfriend comes back into the picture. That’s when he hatches a new plan. Since Addie wants to avoid her aunt’s matchmaking schemes, and he wants to avoid his ex-girlfriend, they’ll fool the world by pretending to date. What neither of them counts on is actually falling in love.

Blue Moon Kisses by Cindy Roland Anderson

Blue Moon Kisses (Georgia Moon Romance, #3)Blue Moon Kisses by Cindy Roland Anderson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I really enjoyed this one! Ashlee has had a childhood crush on her brother's best friend Beau for most of her life, but he only has ever looked at her as a little sister. He joins the military and they go their separate ways. Jump ahead six years and when they both return to their small hometown they're reunited and realize a lot has changed in those six years and she's not so little or sister-like anymore.

I was sucked into this one right from the start and ended up staying up way to late reading, if I didn't have to get my kids up and ready for school the next morning I probably would have stayed up even later to finished. I was actually glad I was able to get my kids off to school and then finish up this morning. I really enjoyed the story and characters. Ashlee and Beau are both likable leads and have amazing chemistry. It's nice that they've known each other for so long and it was fun to watch as they realized their feelings for each other went beyond friendship.

Overall, this was the perfect escape for me. I liked reunited with past characters (stands well on its own) and I love the small-town charm. Definitely a favorite series of mine and one I would totally recommend!

Romance: Clean- Kissing and talk of waiting for marriage
Language: None
Violence: of a date(s) getting a little handsy
Religious: None
Series: Georgia Moon series, Book Three. Can stand well on its own
