Zuma Seals (Malibu Hills Murder) by Deborah Brown

NEW RELEASE….

A year ago, if anyone had told Zach Lazarro he’d settle anywhere other than the Florida Keys, he’d have laughed in their face. Yet here he is in SoCal, launching a private investigations firm with two ex-SEAL buddies, settling into a long-term relationship with L.A. county’s hottest assistant district attorney, Avalon Rossi.

Figures he’d be the one to flush ZSI’s make-or-break job down the toilet. Now his rich, powerful client’s allegedly unfaithful wife is dead. And the evidence isn’t the only thing with gaping holes in it. When it turns out one of ZSI’s own is a suspect, it’ll take more than fast talking to keep him from taking the fall. And another victim from landing in the morgue.

I rated this book 4 ****’s

Loving the new series 
 
It is a great first book from this series. I love this new series. I loved that it is funny, hot and most of all suspense. It is also emotional and gut-wrenching first book. I cannot imagine Ms. Deborah Brown’s next book in this series. She started the first book in a bang. 
 
Crime and passion are my cup of tea. I wish that the next book would be a lot longer to read. Overall, Zach and Avalon hit it off like a sizzling steak on the grill.  
 
The  twist of this book is beyond mind blowing. You will jump at your seat and take a deep breathe.

About the Author


I’ve been writing, in one way or another for as long as I can remember; writing poetry, short stories, a romance novel secretly stashed under the bed and sappy love letters. Fiction should be fun. I wanted to create the perfect beach book, to make the reader laugh, cry and cheer… and then run out and tell their friends about it.

My love of reading began when I was seven, the day I opened the cover of my first Mrs. Piggle Wiggle book. Mrs. P gave lessons to other children in how to behave and to me I learned to love the written word. I live with my family and demon children aka rescue cats in South Florida.

Degrees Of Love Book by Lisa Slabach

 
 

Book Details:

Book Title: Degrees of Love: A Novel by Lisa Slabach
Category: Adult Fiction, 344 pages
Genre: Women’s Fiction
Publisher: Bookbaby
Release date: Dec 1, 2017
Tour dates: Jan 3 to 31, 2017
Content Rating: PG-13 + M (Adult themes including infidelity, occasional F-word, non-explicit sex scenes)

Book Description:

At thirty-six, Susan Sinclair has it all. She’s just been promoted to Senior Vice President of Mobile Banking at her firm, a prestigious position bringing fresh creative challenges and a hefty salary increase. Like the shiny new BMW in the driveway of the Silicon Valley home she shares with her husband, Matt, and their two beautiful boys, Susan exudes confidence and style.

Yet despite her success in juggling the roles of wife, mother, and businesswoman, Susan struggles with a secret dissatisfaction. Matt’s work in cutting-edge computer research pays less than her job, and with each advance in her career, he has grown more distant. But Matt refuses to admit there is a problem, and Susan forces herself to play along, determined to give her boys the close-knit family life she never had.

Then she meets her new boss, Reese Kirkpatrick. Working and traveling together, she and Reese become a crackerjack team, but little by little, pleasure mixes with business. For the first time in a long time—maybe ever—Susan feels seen and appreciated for who she is. Certain she would never allow their friendship to cross the line, Susan lets herself stray dangerously close to the edge.

A moment of weakness changes everything. Now, unable to stomach the façade her marriage has become yet unwilling to decimate her family by moving forward with Reese, Susan faces a choice that could cost her everything—including her children . . . but possibly bring her more than she can dream.

I rated this book 5 *****’s

What a wide opening book to learn 
 
This is my favorite book that I read this month and maybe for a very long time. I really loved reading this book so much.  
 
I do not have a problem if a person commits adultery. It is their life and as long as it is not my husband they fool around and am good. This story blew my mind. I so loved what Reese did to this forbidden relationship. I wish that all men are liked him. 

For me marriage will have ups and downs but the key to a successful marriage  is communication. We have to communicate to one another and resolve any marital problems. Any partner will look somebody to love if they could not find that something they needed the most.  
 
This book is a wide opening for married couple or lovers to read. I know this book is only fiction but deals with problems that typical couple will encounter sometime in their relationship. This book is a must read. 

Communication, trust, and honesty is very important for any relationship. Temptation will occurs in our lives but as long as you can fight the urge. I think we will do fine. 

Praise for Degrees of Love:

“Slabach crafts a relatable, heartbreakingly real story that will no doubt resonate with those at a similar station in life: women who love their families yet yearn for just a little more—to feel wanted rather than needed, to feel passion rather than complacency. In engaging prose and through skillful storytelling, Slabach captivates with an all-too-familiar story that raises questions with no easy answers.”
Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)

“This does not read like a debut author’s book. Slabach shows herself to be adept at portraying the complex emotions of the human condition. Her characters live and breathe on the page in a way that every author strives for, but few actually manage. Susan’s struggles ring true, and the way she handles everything makes her a very likable and relatable character.”
Sarah Perry, San Francisco Book Review, 5 Stars

“Profound, heart wrenching and very emotional, it is hard to believe that Degrees of Love is a debut novel by Lisa Slabach. This is one of the best novels I have read this year.”
Rabia Tanveer, Readers’ Favorite

Degrees of Love: A Novel is about a modern, working mother who goes through a life-changing awakening after becoming intimately involved with her new boss.  I think of it as an exploration of love, which includes love of family and self as well as variations of desire.

Have you always wanted to be a writer?

Being a writer didn’t really occur to me until about nine years ago.  I was a theater major in college and went on to earn an MFA in acting.  I also designed costumes for about thirty productions and directed a few shows when I lived in Chicago.  I thought about trying to write a play on occasions, but always lost my nerve before I did it.  I wrote a good chunk of the first draft of Degrees before I told anyone what I was doing.  Now that I am writing I can’t imagine stopping.

How has your theater background influenced your writing?

Certainly, studying plays and dramatic form has given me a solid background in understanding story structure and dialogue.  When I write, I tend to write a scene as if it were a play with all of the dialogue first and then go back and fill in background, action, and interior thoughts.  In addition, plays by necessity have to be tightly written.  I try to do the same and strive to eliminate details that don’t loop back to move or inform the story in a meaningful way.

Do you write in the quiet or do you prefer background noise?

I often find listening to music gets me in the mood and mind frame to write, but once I’m in the groove, I prefer quiet.  For example, I listened to a lot of OAR and Matt Nathanson when I was writing the first draft of Degrees.  

Do you have another profession besides writing?

Yes, I wear many hats.  I’ve worked in the financial industry for about nineteen years and currently am a Regional Sales Director for a Fortune 500 Company.  I took a three year hiatus from corporate life a few years ago and did a lot of writing and launched an on-line book business, which is still in operation, but I plan to close it down in order to give myself more time to write, sleep, and spend time with my hubby.

Who is your favorite Romance Writer?

Hands down, Rachel Gibson.  Her books are always well written and have a lot of humor without being silly.  I love that her leading ladies are always strong women and far from helpless, and the leading men are realistic.

Ambushed in Paradise Book by Deborah Brown

The Keys is a great place to hide a seashell bucket full of secrets.

Creole…shot…dead. Three words Madison Westin never thought she’d hear in the same sentence. Creole promised. He pinky swore on it.

But even through a blur of tears fed by prescription-strength margaritas, Madison can tell when things are shady. Sure, Creole was undercover, but she deserves more than sketchy non-answers, an urn of ashes, and a secret life crawling out of the woodwork.

Nothing’s adding up, nothing that remotely sounds like the Creole she knew and loved. Calling in every one of her IOU’s—only to find some of her most reliable information sources drying up—Madison sets out to dig up what really happened to Creole. She never thought the truth would wrap its arms around her and make her wonder if she’s chasing a ghost… or taking a vacation from sanity.

Ambushed in Paradise is book #12 in the action-packed Paradise series. Come along with Madison and Fab as they dig up the truth and share more than one hair raising adventure.

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 5 *****’s 

Oh no! not my Creole

I loved Creole and Madison’s character. They are my favorite couple from this series. This book made me so intense knowing what happened to Creole.

Life for Madison would be devastating as her love of her life is dead. This book made my vacation more fun while I was in the Philippines. It is indeed so surreal reading this book while you are at the beach.

It is full of family support and endless friendship. It has  twist as well.  It is full of mystery as always. Ms. Deborah Brown did my head hurts and my heart jumped a bit while reading this book. This series never gets boring. I loved this series and most especially this book.

When love cuts you so deep that it marks even your soul 
 
Wow! Emery And Dean’s love story is like a yoga pose. You stumble, lose your balance and catch your breathe until the session is over.  Their story is one of a kind. I really loved reading this book.

Bayside Desires (Bayside Summers #1)
As the co-owner of Bayside Resorts, Rick Savage has a fabulous job working with his best friends and brother, and a thriving business in Washington, DC, which he’ll be returning to at the end of the summer. Spending time with his family is great, but being back on Cape Cod has unearthed painful memories. When sweet, smart, and overly cautious Desiree Cleary moves in next door, Rick is drawn to the sexy preschool teacher, and she just might prove to be the perfect distraction.

Running an art gallery was not in preschool teacher Desiree Cleary’s plans, but after being tricked into coming to her impetuous, unreliable mother’s aid, she’s stuck spending the summer with the badass half sister she barely knows and a misbehaving dog. If that’s not frustrating enough, she can’t escape the sparks igniting with her strikingly handsome and pushy neighbor, Rick, who makes all her warning bells go off.

Passion ignites as Desiree and Rick spend long summer nights sharing heartfelt confessions and steamy kisses. For the first time in years Rick is enjoying life again instead of hiding behind mounds of work miles away from his family. Desiree has touched him in a way that makes him want to slow down. Only slowing down means dealing with his demons, and he isn’t sure who he’ll be when he comes out the other side.

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.

The dogs Gnarly and Storm adds the flavor to the story as well.

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.

I rated this book 5 *****’s 

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 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.

I am looking forward for the next book of this 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.

Ghost Owl is a magical story of discovery, as a young woman seeks to understand her potential and confront her own shadow. Mariah Easter wakes up in the middle of the night to discover the world is as bright as noon—but for her eyes only. Urged by her godfather, she embarks on a mission to peer into the dark spaces normally hidden from view, leading her to confront the sinister nature of power, the vulnerability of the ill, and the hidden life of a homeless man: a journey that will bring healing to herself and the man she loves.

This compelling and inspirational tale, the third installment of the Avian Series, invites the reader to ponder the extraordinary treasures hidden in the ordinary events of daily life.

I rated this book 4 ****’s 

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!”

Available to buy soon from….
Amazon   Paperback

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.
