Bought this Jamie McGuire Walking Disaster at the garage sale

One of our neighbor has a sign that they will have a garage sale. I like going to the garage sale. I love to check books, CD’s and anything.

I found this book Walking Disaster by the author Jamie McGuire for a $1. I did not read any of her books. I have a thought that this is a great book to read. She is one amazing author as what I read in my Facebook book whores like me.

I am very happy that for a $1 I could read this book. There are more books but I do not recognize the authors. I also bought an Aeropostale sandal for $0.50 and another sandal for my summer babe for $3.

How about you? Do you like to check the garage sale? What do you usually buy?

Return to Love book tour Endless Lover Series 2 by Kathleen Shoop

Sweet Romance… Fresh off their whirlwind nuptials and unexpected, but joyous pregnancy, April and Hale Abercrombie are gleeful about their life together. But, while Hale is serving his country in Vietnam, he receives news of the loss of their newborn daughter.

Back home on leave, Hale can barely wait to hold his wife. Their reunion is passionate and their physical connection, strong and soothing. His embrace, his touch, and his love are just as perfect as April remembered. But nothing, not even Hale, can ease April’s heartache.

Hale stumbles through his attempts at convincing her that their future will be rich and full of wonder despite their loss. His good-hearted, but take-charge approach causes her to retreat. Even in grief, April recognizes Hale’s earnestness, yet she can’t help but distance herself from him. With only a short time before Hale must return to war, the couple begins to understand that hope starts with them—that the bliss they once knew will return only if they are willing to trust again.

Set on the beaches of the Outer Banks, Return to Love is the second book in the Endless Love series. Book one, Home Again, was named a finalist in the 2014 Next Generation Indie Book Awards.

1969– Set on the shores of the Albemarle Sound, April Harrington has fond memories of summers at her family home, Bliss. After her fairytale wedding disintegrates, it becomes her refuge—the one place where she can attempt to pull the unraveling threads of her life back together. Unbeknownst to April, the stately house has been neglected in recent years. The once-sturdy roof is leaking in a few dozen places, and the wharf is rotting. Nothing is the same as she remembers. Nothing except for Hale, a Viet Nam pilot who is haunted by a dreadful secret, and who is also her brother’s best friend, a brother killed in the conflict that is tearing the country apart.

In Hale’s presence, April finds familiarity and solace. They share grief for a lost loved one, and from the comfort of Hale’s arms, passion blooms. Yet, April’s future is unresolved. Her wealthy, arrogant almost-bridegroom wants her back and the ghosts of Viet Nam are whispering to Hale. Can they find new love in an old treasured home, the kind of affection and trust that lasts forever?

Here is what I think of the book.

Wow! I never read a book so emotional like Return to Love. This is a beautiful story of April and Hale when they lost their unborn baby. I am so lucky that I am blessed with two kids. I cannot relate how April’s emotions when losing a child especially that her husband is away from her while in war in Vietnam. Ms. Kathleen Shoop did an amazing job with this story. This is a perfect book for mothers to help them cope with a loss of a baby. This is an amazing book that will help them that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. My first time to cry while reading. What a beautiful story and book this is.

 Jason Sutherland is a billionaire investor who has it all: good looks,
billions of dollars, and every expensive toy a man could ever want. What
he doesn’t have is the one thing he wants the most: Hope Sinclair.
Unfortunately Hope, the little sister of his best friend, was off
limits. But when he finds out that she’s getting married, he decides
that he’s staking his claim before it’s too late, and it will take more
than a little deception and risk to accomplish his goal. Hope could end
up hating his guts, but after spending one forbidden night with her that
he can’t forget, he knows he has to try to make her his forever.
Hope Sinclair was born into money, but being rich has never made her
happy. The one thing she wants is a man to care about her and not her
bank account. The closest thing she’s ever found to real happiness was
the magical, passionate night she’d spent in the arms of Jason
Sutherland…until that night turned into heartbreak. So when he
unexpectedly comes back into her life in the strangest of ways, Hope is
determined to resist her attraction to him.Thrown together by Jason’s deception and with their passion still
burning hot, can the two of them survive after the billionaire is
unmasked?18+ only. Not suitable for children and teens under 18.

Sam Hudson has pretty much lived his life with no apologies because he

Sam meets up with Maddie again by chance; his brother Simon is marrying
Maddie’s best friend and the two of them are forced to be civil. But
Sam wants to be more than polite, and he wants another chance to make
things right, so he offers Maddie a bold proposition, an offer he knows
she’ll have a very hard time declining even though she hates him.
Dr.
Madeline Reynolds adores her best friend Kara and her fiancé Simon, but
being forced into the company of Sam Hudson, because they are both in
Simon and Kara’s wedding, is pure torture. She’s hated Sam for years,
but when he offers her a bargain, something near and dear to her heart,
she’s torn between her dislike for the man and the offer of something
she’s always desperately wanted. Once, Sam Hudson nearly destroyed her,
but Maddie discovers that sometimes things aren’t always what they

something more to him beneath the surface?

With
his professional football career over due to a tragic accident,
billionaire Kade Harrison takes on the task of solving a mystery for his
brother-in-law and friend, Max Hamilton. Without his former career to
fill every minute of the day, Kade’s looking for something to challenge
him–now that he’s lost the career that had meant everything to him.
But what starts out as a simple favor soon becomes a whole lot more than
he bargained for when the woman he’s seeking slips away from him every
time he gets close to finding her. When Kade does finally corner her,
things start to get even more complicated. Asha Paritala is nothing
like he expected, and the female he had tracked down as a favor for Max
soon becomes a woman he wants for his very own, a woman who makes
protective and highly predatory instincts he didn’t know he had flare to
life inside him. Kade soon discovers that he wants Asha’s total
surrender to the desire and passion that vibrates intensely between the
two of them, but he also wants her trust, the one thing Asha’s history
makes it difficult for her to give. Can Kade convince her that some
things are worth risking it all?
Caught
between two worlds, Asha Paritala is homeless, broke and damaged from a
life of abuse and neglect. Born of an American mother and an Indian
immigrant father, Asha was raised as an Indian woman by a foster family
after the death of her natural parents when she was little more than a
baby. She’s spent her entire life under the control of others until
finally breaking free two years earlier, and she’s determined to keep
her freedom, even if it means she has to struggle to survive. But when
she meets Kade Harrison, her resolve is tested. After Kade helps her
through a bad situation, she finds herself beginning to trust Kade as
she’s never trusted a man before. Kade is everything she always
thought a man should be, but can she lose herself in him completely when
she knows she’s damaged and confused. And is it really possible that
she could be a lost sibling to two people like Max Hamilton and Maddie
Hudson? Asha is tempted by the possibility of family, and the
irresistible lure of a man like Kade Harrison. Can a woman caught
between two cultures, so flawed and so backward, really reach out and
take what she wants, or will the instinct to run from the pain of her
past destroy the hope of happiness for her future?
Find out if two broken souls can heal each other in The Billionaire’s Game, book 4 of The Billionaire’s Obsession series!!

Meeting Miss Nicole Kuhn a local book author

I never imagine that i will meet an author in person. It is so unreal to me especially the author lives locally and not far from where I live. Fate is really unpredictable. What a chance that it will happen to me.

 photo author_zps4efa2803.jpg

Anyway, I love to join giveaways especially if the prize to win is the swag. I love to collect them like bookmarks, postcards to name few that I love. I won this giveaway. I never expect that I will win. There are so many entries, luck is what I have if I win. I sent an email and surprisingly Miss Nicole said that she also lives in the same city as mine. She told me that she is also an author. She has a Facebook page which I am an old follower.

 photo book_zps21b28eb0.jpg

I check her Website. I want to buy one of her books. I also ask her if she charge for it to signed. She said it is free, how sweet of her. The paperback does not cost much. She asks me that I could pick it up or ship it to my address.

 photo bookA_zpsa9780fc3.jpg

Of course, I will pick it up and meet her in person. I panic and she said that author is the same person too. She is very sweet and so friendly. I told her that I need to wait for my husband as he drove my car. We drove to her house. She is waiting outside. I ask her if I could take a picture of the two of us which she agreed. This is one of my fan moment. I am honored to meet Miss Nicole Kuhn.

By the way, I bought the book “Bare Back” which you can find here in Amazon. I cannot wait to read it. She said it is one of her favorite books of her. She wrote 13 books and will check them out too.

The Girl In White Pajamas by Chris Birdy – Book Tour Campaign

When Officer Bud the PR face of the Boston Police Department is gunned down, his brother, Bogie McGruder, returns from Palm Beach for the funeral. Since the BPD is investigating the death of one of their own, Bogie believes his trip to Boston will be a short condolence visit and a chance to meet his secret love child.

But interacting with a family fueled by alcohol and mired in scandals, Bogie is reminded why he does investigations for his Boston based company from a computer in Florida. Although Bogie wants to contact his ex-lover, Bailey Hampfield, he’s reluctant to do so since Bailey dumped him four years earlier. Knowing that Bailey had his child after she cut him loose, Bogie ponders how he can establish a relationship with the three year old daughter he’s never met. While he thinks about it, Bailey gets in touch with him and asks for protection. Someone is trying to kill her.

By the time Bogie meets Isabella, it’s apparent that he still loves the mother and adores the child. Bogie tells himself that he’s not interested in the BPD investigation into Bud’s death, but he continues to be drawn into it while trying to discover who is attempting to kill Bailey. The investigations seem to parallel each other, then intersect and become intertwined. As the story develops, Isabella, a precocious child obsessed with martial arts, slowly becomes the focus.

The underlying theme of this mystery is lies. Everyone seems to be running on lies and half truths. The only pure and true character is The Girl in White Pajamas.

About the Author

Chris Birdy was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. After graduating from high school, she did a four year stint in the Middle East. When she returned to the States, Chris settled down in the Boston area and became a true Bostonian by collecting college degrees while raising a family.

For more than twenty years, Chris has been a member of the legal community performing investigative work for Boston law firms conducting business in rough housing projects and crack house neighborhoods. Several years ago, while sitting in a courtroom with a client, Chris watched as a police officer was lambasted by an attorney. The attorney was defending a young woman who crashed her car into two other vehicles before she passed out drunk behind the wheel. The occupants of the other cars were seriously hurt and the cop, a former EMT, tried to assist the injured while waiting for ambulances to arrive. The attorney questioned the cop’s every move, shredded his testimony and made him seem inept. Embarrassed, the cop returned to his seat beside me and muttered, “Everybody lies. The judges lie, the lawyers lie, the witnesses lie..” Chris wanted to tell him not to worry that in about five years he’d be just as good a liar as they were.

The seeds for The Girl in White Pajamas were planted in that courtroom.

Chris lives outside of Boston and in Palm Beach, Florida with her husband.

What do I think of the book?

This book makes my heart beating so fast up to the last page. It is a beautiful book and the story as well. Isabella will wrap you in her tiny hands. She is a very smart and funny girl. I love Bogie and Bailey’s love story as well. What a second chance of love they have. I am glad that everything end amazingly with this story. I highly recommend it. A must read for everyone. It is not my cup of tea book because I love romance book but this book is hard to put down once you read it.
