Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Changing Season by B.J. Phillips

Changing Seasons

"I loved everything about this book! It was a great story with realistic characters. A heart-melting romance. Very well written."

In Book 3 of the Seasons Series, there’s trouble in paradise. Kelly Bradley and Andi Wainwright live together in Florida but haven’t yet said those three little words to each other. Andi’s aunt, Elise Wainwright, and Kelly’s friend, Lauren Prescott, both in their mid-sixties, are now a couple in many ways except one. Elise is afraid they’re too old for more than good night kisses and cuddling.
Romance novelist Shawn Richards and her wife Carrie Alexander are now a solid married couple and want to see their friends as happy as they are. Unlike the endings in Shawn’s novels, though, maybe there can’t be a ‘happy ever after’ for everyone, after all.

Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Chain Reactions by Lynn Ames

Chain Reactions

"I really enjoyed this book. It was a breath of fresh air. Ms. Ames does not put out a plethora of books, but the ones she does put out are well thought out and a joy to read."

"Great storytelling. Well written characters that you got to know in depth. Loved Nora and wished I could have known her better. Settings spot on. Felt a little sluggish in some spots but overall an awesome read."

"Great book! I was deeply moved by this story and love to read about strong, intelligent female characters. I cried big ugly tears!"


Some of Diana Lindstrom’s fondest memories involve childhood experiments conducted under the watchful supervision of her Great-Aunt Nora, a celebrated physicist long ago shunned by the family for mysterious reasons.

Now in her adult years and a sought-after scientist herself, Diana learns that Nora is dying. She hires private-duty nurse Brooke Sheldon to care for Nora. Over the days and weeks spent in Nora’s company, Diana and Brooke are privy to Nora’s long-held secrets, along with her deep-seated regrets.

Trapped in a failing body, but with a keen mind, Nora Lindstrom watches as the spark of attraction between her great-niece and her caregiver grows into a flame. Determined to help the two younger women find the kind of deep love they so richly deserve, Nora makes a fateful decision that brings the past and the present directly onto a collision course. After all this time, it’s still about chain reactions.

Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Heart of Sherwood by Edale Lane

Heart of Sherwood

"This fantastic, powerful, and awesome tale was a unexpectedly unconventional and unique twist on the classic Robin Hood stories."

"This book was a fun take on an old classic. It was loooong though (hahaha). I liked the way this author gave a twist to the story and the romance was sweet. It had a good flow and great world building."
