Ms. Lauren Carr did amazing as always 
 
I super loved this new book. Ms. Lauren Carr did amazing as always. I super loved the main three characters rolled into one of this mesmerizing mystery story from her previous books.  
 
I enjoyed reading this book. It gives deeper story of Black Diamond. She is one mystery killer but oh so good. This story is like my husband and my son who loves fishing while my daughter and I love to go to the book event to have the fun minus the crime. The dogs Gnarly and Storm adds the flavor to the story as well.  

This might be my new favorite book from of my favorite mystery book author. Ms. Lauren Carr never stop to entertain her fans with her mystery stories. Twofer Murder is another fun and intense book to read. I really enjoyed figuring who the murders are. 
 
This story gives more insight of how being an author is a hard job. Kudos to them for creating stories like Ms. Lauren Carr who likes to twist our mind and makes our heart beats so fast while devouring her books.

Finally More Book by Rachel De Lune

Book: Finally More
Author: Rachel De Lune
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: 8th January 2018
#FinallyMoreTour

Synopsis

Love can be found in the strangest of places.
Natasha Devlin, the Mistress that rules the playrooms at Solace, and the men or women she dominates, doesn’t need love or relationships outside the walls of her fortress. She’d witnessed her fellow Doms fall in love. That wasn’t her scene.
Aiden Morgan has two priorities in his life. Dedicating his time to visiting at the Alzheimer’s home that cares for his Grandad, and to his one other love, painting. But things change when he meets a stunningly beautiful older woman.
For the first time in years, a simple friendship excites Natasha. It’s new and fresh and free from the responsibilities that have bound her life. Of course, the sizzling chemistry between her and Aiden helps. Introducing Aiden to the BDSM world she lives in would be a risk, but one she can’t pass up.

 
I rated this book 5 *****’s
This book is more captivating  
 
I so loved Natasha and Aiden’s love story. It is unique, flirty and so delicious. It is very emotional as well. Working in a nursing home, I can relate to this devastating disease. There are moments just like this book that you just need to take a deep breathe and move on.  
 
Finally More is beyond BDSM. There is touch, smile and most of all undying love.  There is also forgiveness. This might be my favorite from More series. It is hotness overload that you cannot help but turn on while reading this amazing book. There is a lot of love more than just the BDSM. I so loved reading this book. I loved the setting as well.

Those who success in life never quit 
 
This book is a very short read yet the lessons you will learned is a lifetime. Life is full of trials and triumphs. Those who success in life never quit. Sometimes life is not fair but we need to move on to go on with our life. 
 
I loved all the poems written in this book. They are beautiful and worth remembering especially when life gives you lemons. 
 
I just came back from my trip to the Philippines few days ago. Jetlag is finally over and can now move normally without nightmares and that feeling when you are still inside the airplane. Will I travel again to the Philippines? Absolutely I will. I hate the long flights. The cancelations and lost of baggage. Despite of those bad lucks, seeing my family is beyond happiness. Life is not fair especially for myself. I  just wish that Philippines is six hours  flight but unfortunately, it is the other side of the world. Life is not fair because some people cannot visit their family though they live 30 minutes distance from each other. Here I am experiencing the jetlag but the travel is worth a lifetime. 
 
This book is so inspirational. You should grab a copy of yourself and be amazed.

Only For You (Sugar Lake Book 2) Book By Melissa Foster

NEW RELEASE……..

Love only works when your heart is in the right place. Hers could be right next door…

Single mom Bridgette Dalton doesn’t have time to stop and smell the roses—not even in her own flower shop. But that doesn’t mean she hasn’t noticed Bodhi Booker. Her ruggedly handsome next-door neighbor would be the perfect candidate for a no-strings fling. Having loved and lost, Bridgette’s not ready to hand over her heart…but she could use a distraction.

Bodhi has one rule: never leave anyone behind. As a special operative, he knows that each new mission is more dangerous than the last. He’s never made a promise of forever to a woman, not even to the beautiful widow who has him tied in knots. And if there were anyone who could tempt him into putting down roots, it would be Bridgette and her adorable son.

But as his next deployment nears, they make a startling discovery. Their passion, meant only for the here and now, might already be blossoming into something more…

Give me some sugar please

This book is sweetness overload. I think the sweetest book I ever read from Ms. Melissa Foster. Louie will put you too much calories on you. This kid is not only the cutest but cannot help but will melt your heart like snowman in a sunny day.

This book is emotional as well beyond the hotness. I loved reading every chapters of this book. Honestly, I do not want it to finish reading the book. Bodhi and Bridgette connection is instant. These two is protective not only with their hearts but emotions as well. They are my new favorite couple of this new series.

The Real Thing (Sugar Lake Book 1)
Fall in love on the shores of Sugar Lake in the small town of Sweetwater with Willow Dalton and Zane Walker.

This sassy, spirited baker is fine with heat—but is her fake fiancé too hot to handle?

Bakery owner Willow Dalton’s friendship with Zane Walker has always been a bit complicated. Now a scrumptiously hot A-list actor, Zane’s always had a reputation as player. He’s arrogant, and he’s definitely not boyfriend material. Sure, he did Willow a favor by agreeing to take her virginity before college, but is that reason enough to go along with a fake engagement a decade later—even if it comes with a real diamond ring?

Zane should have known better. Nothing involving Willow has ever been easy. Still, he knows her better than anyone, and becoming America’s hottest new leading man means cleaning up his reputation. An “engagement” to curvy, sass-mouthed Willow is the perfect PR move . . . provided no one gets hurt.

Now Zane and Willow’s little white lie has turned into an irresistible recipe for sweet temptation. And soon no one will be able to tell the difference between their fake engagement or the real thing—including them.

Life is so mysterious

This book is beyond unbelievable. It is a unique read which will keep you in awe. Life is so mysterious. There are magic or situation that is unbelievably to explain. I believe those moments when it happens.

Those powers I wish I have  and am sure it is beyond ordinary. This is a sweet book to read. If you believe in extra ordinary things, then you will love reading this book.  Mariah, inspired me to start writing a journal especially that I am traveling soon. We should write memories just like Mariah.

This book is also about friendship, family and love. We should follow our instincts too. Angels surround us wherever we are. It could be in different forms and we just them. They are mysterious.

Meet the Author: 

 

Nancy Schoellkopf is the author of the Avian Series of novels including Yellow-Billed Magpie and Red-Tailed Hawk, as well as the short story collection Rover and Other Magical Tales. She has been telling stories and writing poems for many lifetimes. It goes without saying that she’s needed a second income, so this time around she happily taught amazing children in special education classes in two urban school districts in Sacramento, California. A full time writer now, she enjoys lavishing attention on her cats, her garden and her intriguing circle of family and friends.

What inspired you to become a writer?

I’ve always loved stories.  I remember my mother reading me Peter Pan when I was very small.  I fell in love with magic and I fell in love with stories.

How did you get the idea for Ghost Owl?

I woke up one night and noticed light coming through the curtains.  I got up and looked out.  Even though it was three AM, everything in the yard could be seen distinctly.  The world did not look as it did to Mariah in Ghost Owl, but it was surprising.  I realized later that it was an overcast evening and the street lights were reflecting off the clouds, making the world visible in the darkness.  No magic, but it got me thinking of a story for Mariah:  exploring the shadow side of her city, the vulnerabilities of her family and the dark side of her own nature.

If you were stuck on a desert island, what books would you want with you?

If there’s a book by Margaret Atwood or Barbara Kingsolver I haven’t read yet, that’s the one I’d choose!  I’d also need Women Who Run with the Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estes; I could read that over and over again.  A few volumes of poetry by Mary Oliver and Sharon Olds would also be nice.

And what about food on that island?  What would you like to eat?

I think I would be happy living on peanut butter and dark chocolate.  But for variety I hope that island has oranges in winter and peaches in summer.

What’s your next project?

We live in a time of great divisiveness, so I’ve been praying for an open heart.  I’ve begun to envision an anthology of essays and poetry on the theme of how to have an open heart in crazy times.  Watch for a call for material!

Christmas in Paradise Book by Deborah Brown (Florida Keys Mystery Series Book 13)

COMING SOON….

My name is Madison Westin. Unless it’s Christmas, in which case my official title is “Holiday Cheermistress.” Nothing stops me from getting my ho-ho-ho on, not even my friends’ Grinch-worthy attitude toward sparkling tinsel, twinkling lights, and tinkling bells.

Hey, if Creole, Fab, and Didier wind up with coal in their stockings, it won’t be my fault.

When some bah-humbug bandit makes the rounds of Tarpon Cove, Fab and I are on the case. It’s the least we can do for our loyal friends. Seasonal crime-victim disorder seems to be on the rise.

Some guy in a Santa suit—well, the top half of one anyway—is robbing local banks. The cops are fingering the wrong guy. And you can bet your light-up Rudolph boxers that if we can’t track the real thief down, one of my merry band of miscreants could be spending the holidays behind bars.

The Paradise series, are Florida Keys mysteries, “great as stand-alone reads, but they’re like chips…you won’t be able to devour just one!”

I rated this book 4 ****’s 

Funny and festive 

This is a short book from one of my favorite author Ms. Deborah Brown. Christmas in Paradise is funny and festive. All the chaos you can imagine during the holiday will keep you entertain while reading this book.

The sisters not from blood but by heart Madison and Fab with their hunk boyfriends entertained us again with another story. This book is full of family love, laugh out loud moments and a little scary. These two wild women who have no fears became the hero of this story. I am so glad that one of the couple made me excited about their future.

Ms. Deborah Brown never failed to show us some love not only from the warm weather in Florida which I always envy but her writing is phenomenal as always. This book might be short story but the action never stops.

I am looking forward to read another book from this series. This book is a fun holiday book to read not only in the beach but if you needed a moment to enjoy by yourself or even with girlfriends.

“South Florida author Deborah Brown books are infectious.

“My love for these quirky characters grows with every book! Hope they never end!”

“This fabulous duo exudes so much sassiness and strong willed characteristics that I absolutely cannot get enough of.

About the Author
I’ve been writing, in one way or another for as long as I can remember; poetry, sappy short stories (my best friend made me swear that I’d never show anyone until I changed the names), and a romance novel shoved under my bed.

I wanted to create books with a wide-range of unforgettable characters, with heat and romance, and lots of guns. It wouldn’t be complete without a slice of humor and charm.

I live with my family and demon children aka rescue cats in South Florida.

Her Christmas Chance by Rachelle Ayala (A Christmas Creek Romance Book 2)

NEW RELEASE….
Will her cat ruin her Christmas chance for love?

Bella Tallahan has always hidden behind her twin sister, Tally. She was born with cerebral palsy and even though she has finished college, she lives vicariously through her sister’s adventures.

It worked, until her sister married writer Lucky Lenigan, and Bella developed a crush on Lucky’s brother—a bad boy with a shady past.

Chance Martin made one mistake growing up—one that landed him in prison. After his release, he spends his days restoring antique furniture and his nights alone.

When Mr. Klutz, Bella’s fat tabby cat, wreaks havoc in the furniture workshop, Chance confronts Bella and finds himself with a dilemma. He’s not the right kind of guy for a woman with disabilities, but at the same time, he can’t get her out of his mind.

Will the trail of destruction left by one naughty cat bring Bella her Christmas chance for love? Can Chance rise above his past and convince Bella that she is truly worth loving? Or will the secret he is keeping horrify Bella enough to send her back into hiding?

Author’s Note: Although part of the Christmas Creek Romance Series, Her Christmas Chance is a complete and standalone story. Bella Tallahan appears in a previous story, Lucky in Laguna, where her sister Tally Tallahan meets and falls in love with Lucky Lenigan.

Dangerous Changes Book By Joyce T Strand

A series of events rattle Emily Lazzaro: a near-death encounter with a pickup on a narrow mountain road, the murder of a would-be client, and an ex-fiancé who won’t let go. Can she survive a police investigation, pressure from her ex’s company, and the suspicions of a possible new love-interest—so that she can make the changes to create a meaningful new life in a special town in southern California?

Available to buy from…
Amazon   Barnes and Noble    Kobo    iBooks   GPlay   Paperback

About Emily Lazzaro

Emily Lazzaro is the daughter of Wayne Lazzaro, the winemaker for the Hilltop Sunset winery in the previously published three Brynn Bancroft mysteries. She moved with her fiancé to Ramona, Calif., a rural community near San Diego, following graduation from college with a degree in hospitality. Her fiancé was eager to purchase a vineyard and develop a winery in the up and coming Ramona wine region, which suited Emily’s goals.

However, after moving to Ramona, it becomes apparent to Emily that she is not a good match for her fiancé. She discovers that he does not respect her opinions and insists on making decisions without her input. So she breaks off the engagement.

She decides to remain in Ramona despite her fiancé living there with his new vineyard. She appreciates the unique rocky terrain and proximity to the ocean and San Diego, along with the mixture of fine wineries, artists, and equestrian activities.  She makes her living doing people’s taxes, and when Dangerous Changes opens, we discover she is looking to make a career change.

I rated this book 4 ****”s

Is there a light at the end of the tunnel for Emily? 
 
Emily is such a sweet girl but some people manipulative on her. I feel badly for her. She just need to say no and fight back. I am sure that some women can relate to this situation. I knew it happened to me but am learning my lesson.  
 
This sweet girl is so trusting that it almost lost her life. Good thing that some good people are behind her to help her out. Is there a light at the end of the tunnel for her? She struggles a lot and every time she helped someone, something bad happened to them. Enough is enough am so glad that she fights until her last breathe.  
 
This book is full of hope and the second chance of love. Life sometimes is not fair but one thing is amazing is, when you learn how to step up and moved on to a new life and things will get better. I am looking forward for the next book in this series. 

About the Author
Joyce T. Strand is the author of who-done-it contemporary and historical mysteries set in San Francisco, Napa-Sonoma wine regions of California, or Ventura, California.

Her most recent novels, Hilltop Sunset and Landscape for Murder, feature protagonist Brynn Bancroft, a financial guru in transition to winemaker from corporate executive. Brynn Bancroft is a minor character in Strand’s first three novels On Message, Open Meetings, and Fair Disclosure—three mysteries solved by Jillian Hillcrest, a publicist in Silicon Valley whose boss was Chief Financial Officer Brynn Bancroft.

Her first historical mystery, The Judge’s Story, tells the story of a Superior Court Judge with a passion for social justice as well as the law who strives to discover the truth behind the mystery of a robbery-murder in a small California town in 1939.

All of her novels are inspired by actual events and/or real people, although they are definitely fictionalized.

Much like her protagonist Jillian Hillcrest, Strand headed corporate communications at several biotech and high-tech companies in California’s Silicon Valley for more than 25 years. Unlike Jillian, however, she did not encounter murder in her career. She focused on writing by-lined articles, press releases, white papers, and brochures to publicize her companies and their products.

She lives with her two cats and collection of cow statuary in Southern California, and enjoys exploring and writing about the growing wine region in the Ramona Valley near San Diego.

She received her Ph.D. from the George Washington University, Washington, D.C. and her B.A. from Dickinson College, Carlisle, PA

Book Description:

Sabinne ‘Saber’ Darrieux’s father, the billionaire CEO of Frontenac Global Security has been kidnapped. His ransom is not cash in a numbered offshore account, or a briefcase of Bearer Bonds but something utterly unique, incredibly valuable, and until recently, hidden away from the world.

The kidnapper seems to know Saber very well and knows that the next day, through her work as an elite translator she will be in the same location as the Object. She must steal the Object and deliver it to the kidnapper to ransom her father.

Adrian Steele, a British Intelligence agent has just come off of two harrowing missions. Upon returning to London for a well-earned rest, he learns that his friend and fellow agent has been murdered in Moscow, but not before he made use of a unique Object as a mobile ‘drop site’ for the valuable intelligence he was carrying.

The drop site is traveling from Moscow to England. Steele insists on completing the mission to honor the death of his friend, Gerry Cornell.

At an ultra-chic quasi-diplomatic gathering in a mansion in Windsor, England, Saber and Steele meet and find themselves faced with a powerful, undeniable attraction. But at the moment, this compelling attraction is very inconvenient.

In reality, they are at the mansion to check out the security arrangements — for their own reasons — to steal the Object, a Fabergé egg worth thirty million dollars. But who will get to the egg first?

Fabergé eggs are very famous for their unique surprises. Saber and Steele are about to be very surprised, indeed.

And when Saber clashes with Steele; more than sparks will explode!

I rated this book 5 *****’s 

This book is endless thrilling and oh the best

I enjoyed reading this book from the first page up to the end. It is so thrilling and oh the best action book I read so far this year. I loved how smart and so quick Saber is. This girl is the bomb. She is so amazing. I loved how talented and skillful she is. She is my favorite character and Steele too. These two are so insatiable for each other. Reading this book reminds of me a James Bond movie, full of actions and intense situation. The book is beyond amazing. The only thing I do not like it is…when Saber was young and her Dad did not stop that evil situation happened to her. I am so glad that she got her revenge.

If you love a suspense and mystery book that is full of action, this book is the best for me to recommend. The power of evil never last. Deception will never win.

What advice would you give to budding writers?
Everyone has their own particular circumstances, their own styles, but the first thing that comes to mind is: Get it on the page! Things will change, the writing will change you, but Get It On The Page. It does not have to be perfect. You will be able to hone and finesse your writing in later drafts. This is why it is called a craft. Make sure you have trusted Alpha Readers, and a good Editor. Grammar is important. This is all pretty basic when it comes to writing, but unfortunately too many writers lose sight of this. Not a very exciting answer, but to me, these are important points. The truth of it is that good writing is hard work, and sometimes not very fun. But hopefully the results, for the reader, are an engaging book. Personally, I want to write a book that’s worthwhile and people will enjoy reading. To me that’s what counts.
In your book you make a reference to the SonicStar, how did you come up with this idea?
Part of my research process! The SonicStar does exist, it’s just not ready to be rolled out yet. Suborbital flight has been a goal for many years. I wish the Concorde was still flying They’re not quite the same, but I love the idea of supersonic flight.

What is your next project?
I’m drawing together the pieces of a new story about Saber and Steele. I really love these two characters, and the dynamic between them. There is more to their stories as people, how relationships are like mine-fields for both of them. Their desire to be with each other, but the issues they have trusting other people, and each other.

What genre do you write and why?
I love reading action-y romantic adventures, with a bit of humor. I thought it would be great fun to write one. So I did! I’m also a great reader of espionage novels. Adam Hall is one of my favorites. His Quiller series is amazing. I wanted to recreate the breathless intensity of his books but my main characters are very different from Mr. Hall’s. There is humor, but not much of it and it is the very dry British sort. However, I did name my hedgehog “Quiller.”

What is your writing schedule?
I do not have a set schedule, I write as the mood takes me. A better question might be what is a writing schedule? I was in Japan recently, having fun and doing research as well as writing. I’ve been spent a lot of time in trains, and managed to get some notes and scenes down. On my return flight (trans-Pacific) while the rest of the people on the plane were sleeping, I was writing away, trying to plot out an action scene for the next book. I may not be very disciplined in the way of many writers who have regular schedules, but I have an intense need to do what I do.

How do you do research for your books?
I’m very lucky in that I am able to travel a lot. I try to get to know as much as I can about the places I’ve written about. I was born and grew up in Los Angeles, traveled extensively in England and have had many “road trips” to Las Vegas. I want my reader to be able to get the “feel” of the places mentioned in the book. That is the fun part. I also do extensive online research and talk to the people who work in the areas I write about. I use everything that presents itself to me as research. I use life, experiences, the Internet, travel. I also do extensive reading on a variety of eclectic subjects. Some are papers that while public are not widely available. I also talk to a lot of people about aspects of their jobs and experiences. They decline to be mentioned in the acknowledgements, but are generous with their time, and I am thankful for their friendship and expertise.
