Heartbreak Cove Lily Everett (Sanctuary Island Series)


What's the book about:
Welcome to a place where love is in the air, fate is in the stars, and home is just a heartbeat away…
Sheriff Andie Shepard may be new to Sanctuary Island but, like everyone else who comes here, she’s already fallen under its healing spell. Andie is determined to leave her mistakes behind her and make this scenic haven her home. But she just might have to change her plans—as well as open her heart—when an unexpected visitor shows up on her doorstep…

Heartbreak Cove

Caitlin is the ten-year-old niece Andie never knew she had. Silent, wary, and shy as can be, Caitlin only responds to the horses that run wild across the island. Andie has no idea how to deal with Caitlin—until Sam Brennan enters the picture. A tall, handsome loner who rehabilitates abused horses, Sam is able to help Caitlin break out of her shell. But that’s not all: He finds a way to touch something deep in Andie’s heart, opening her up to the healing power of love. Together, these three lost souls must face the darkness in their past to build a brighter future. Because here, on Sanctuary Island, anything is possible…

My thoughts on the book:
First off I rarely give books a five star rating, However this book truly does deserve it. I love the character in the book, I love how they feel more like catching up with a friend then just reading a story about fictional characters. In the beginning I wrote down that Andie was broken, but loved deeply, she was tough but had a soft spot. Sam was running from something but was also hiding from something, he also loved deeply but didn't always show it. When I finished the book I would have to that some of those where not that far off and thats what made the book what it was. The chemistry between the characters and I mean all the main ones will  keep you going from the beginning to the end. I also have to say this is one book I was not ready to stop reading at the end I just wanted to read so much more. I can not wait for Owen's story to come out. This book will not disappoint at all if you are looking for a fun read that has you going through the whole book this is the book for you.

Sandra D. Bricker Interview "On a Ring and a Prayer" * THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED ENJOY THE INTERVIEW


Welcome all, thank you so much for stopping by.
Today I’m very lucky and honored to be interviewing Sandra D. Bricker author of the up and coming book of a  "On a Ring and a Prayer", also known for here series "An Emma Rae Creation".

Hi Sandra, thank you for agreeing to this interview, let’s go ahead and jump right in;

When did you decide to become a writer?

I'm pretty sure I've always known I was going to write. Even from a very young age, I enjoyed creating stories and characters. But I don't think I realized I could actually make a career out of it until I was in my early twenties.

Which writers inspire you?

SO MANY! Some of my contemporary peers in romantic fiction blow me away, like Kristin Billerbeck, Eva Marie Everson and Robin Jones Gunn. I also love to read Frank Peretti, James Patterson, and Rebecca York... As you can see, I'm really moved by good storytelling.

What is the hardest thing about writing?

The disconnect between publishing at last and making an actual living above the poverty level.

What is the easiest thing about writing?

Well, what's really easy about it is this: When God puts a call on your life - whether it's writing fiction, building skyscrapers or teaching children - once it really digs in and you know it's your purpose, everything about it becomes a little easier.

I just love how your books can be deep and funny all at the same time, I find myself laughing and crying. When you are writing your book are you trying to put yourself in the shoes of the reader and hope for this kind of experience?

Not while I'm writing it, no. While I'm writing, I'm busy putting myself in the shoes of the characters. It's not until I do the first set of revisions that I start thinking about how to make the experience as rewarding as possible for my readers. I'm blessed in a way that a lot of writers aren't; I've gotten to know my readers pretty well. So giving them the pay-off I know they're looking for becomes a main objective for me.

When you set out to write your book what kind of audience are you looking to reach?

Even though I do think about my readers, I don't write directly to them. My main goal is to just tell a really fun, uplifting, believable, and thought-provoking story.

What inspired you to write this Series?

Post-Emma Rae, I started wondering if I had anything else to say that would be so well-received or entertaining as they were. When Jessie first came to mind, it was because I understood her plight. My former life in Hollywood as a publicist plays a huge part in impacting the outcome of the story.

Which actor/actress would you like to see playing the lead character from your most recent book?

My casting for the Jessie Stanton series came to me within the first two chapters of the first book. Jessie is a young version of Tiffani Thiessen, and Danny has never been anyone to me except Josh Holloway.

My Favorite character in On a ring and a prayer is Stephanie, I just love her. Do you have a favorite character in this series and if so who and why?

When you say Stephanie, do you mean Danny's friend Steph?  She's spectacular, isn't she? My favorite character is definitely Danny. He's so cool and unassuming, and he really has his head on straight in terms of his past and its impact on his present, particularly where his faith is concerned. He and Jessie's grandfather were so much fun to write.

  Your right I do Just love Danny, he has such a heart of gold and he is easy to like a lot!

Tells us a little about the book and the books you write for someone who is new to your books.

Starting with Rise & Shine last year, I began transitioning from a "Laugh-Out-Loud" brand of romantic comedy to a meatier "Live-Out-Loud" brand that allows me to go deeper with my characters and plots.

Here's the summary for this book (On a Ring and a Prayer):
Twelve years of marriage, 4,000 square feet of dream house and a handsome husband. Jessie Stanton has it all. Until one fateful afternoon anyway when she notices her BMW bouncing by the window at the end of a tow truck hook. The whirling tornado that cuts down the life she’s built over the last dozen years drops her to the sandy beach of Malibu with a thud, penniless and alone. When all she has left are the designer labels in her closet and the dreamy Neil Lane rock on her finger, Jessie reluctantly turns to a beach bum/private investigator for answers as she tries to rebuild her life On a Ring & a Prayer.



I personally know you are currently writing book two for this series (cause I hounded you about it on Facebook...) what is one thing you can share with us about a glance into the next book?

I have actually completed Be My Valentino, and now I'm working on finishing up the series with the third and final book.
Here's a summary for Be My Valentino:

Now that the whole truth has come out about her husband’s double life, the woman formerly known as Jessie Hart-Stanton is standing on her own for the first time in her life. Adornments “ her rental store for all things LUX “ has become the place to be for D-List stylists and wannabe celebs who can't afford their own designer labels. As Amber and Jessie struggle to put the store on the map in Tinsel Town, Jessie’s relationship with private investigator Danny Callahan takes a dramatic turn. But Jessie can’t afford to put her faith (and heart) into another relationship when she’s so obviously handicapped in the good judgment department, and she has no intention of taking a knee and committing to his God “ the same God who let her spend twelve years being conned by Jack Stanton. She pours herself into making Adornments a success but it isn’t until she dresses a reluctant Danny in Valentino for undercover work at a formal affair that Hollywood takes notice. It seems Danny has been plucked out of the crowd, snapped by photogs, and lands as the unlikely cover model on the front of Hollywood Daily Magazine.

How many books are you planning for this series?

There will be three books in the series. Book 2 is titled Be My Valentino, and it releases this fall. Then Book 3 is tentatively titled From Bags to Riches, due out next spring.

On ring and a Prayer -Sandra D. Bricker


What's the book about:


In a city where everything is gorgeous and expensive, can Jessie Stanton survive on pennies and prayers?Twelve years of marriage, 4,000 square feet of dream house, and a handsome husband. Jessie Stanton has it all… until one fateful afternoon when she notices her BMW bouncing by the window behind a tow truck. Her husband has gone, and he’s taken it all. The whirling tornado that cuts down the life she’s built drops Jessie onto the sandy beach of Malibu with a thud, penniless and alone. When all she’s left with are the designer labels in her closet and the dreamy Neil Lane rock on her finger, Jessie tries to make ends meet by pawning her prized ring to fund a new business venture: a small shop where her designer duds and shimmering accessories are temporarily leased out to Southern California women with champagne tastes but root beer realities. As Jessie tries to rebuild, she realizes she can’t move on, not without answers. Reluctantly, Jessie turns to beach bum/private investigator Danny Callahan for help. But is she staking her future success and happiness…on a ring and a prayer?

My thoughts on the book:

New starts are never easy; there are lots of bumps in the road that get you to new starts and new chapters. Sometimes you have to just pick yourself up and dust yourself off.  Not everyone can relate with the rich and famous but everyone can relate to being betrayed by someone you love and care for so deeply. Jessie is no different she is strong and seems to have a lot going for her. When her life crashes around her she is forced to come face to face with choice that can’t be easy for most of us. The plot and the storyline literally grab you and draw you from one page to the next and keep you there from the beginning of the book till the very end. With each character you feel like you could be friends or know someone in like that. I have to say hands down I will be telling everyone I know about this book, can’t wait for the rest of the series to come out. This book did not disappoint and you cannot go wrong with buy this book.


My Thoughts on each of the main characters in the book:
  • Daniel- free-spirited fun loving surfer guy with a heart to help others and a love for God
  • Amber-a go-getting risk taker with a lot of love and spirit you just want to be around her
  • Stephanie- (I want to be her when I grow up) she seems like a no non sense person with a lot of value in life and friends
  • Piper- a loyal friend, sweet, loving and full of spirit, a true friend
  • Jessie- head strong lets nothing in life stop her, has a big heart but a broken spirit.
  • Riggs- Friend to everyone a big hearted guy with a lot of spirit, not very vocal about things and life
  • Frank- A fun loving friend who thinks he should be loved and honored by everyone who comes in contact with him and everyone needs to know he is that and will not be ignored. 
  • Grampy- The most loving person with a big heart of gold who wants the best for all in his life but knows that life is not always sunshine and roses.

A Stitch in Crime Cathy Elliott


What's the book about:

Thea James has accepted an assignment as co-chairperson for Larkindale’s first quilt show extravaganza. Juggling the new assignment with running her antique business, she’s already feeling frayed when things start to unravel.
Mary-Alice Wentworth, a much-loved town matriarch, respected quilt judge, and Thea’s dear friend, is covertly conked on the head during the kick-off Quilt Show Soiree, throwing suspicion on her guests. It also appears that a valuable diamond brooch has been stolen during the attack. The family is furious. But is it because of their mugged mother or the missing diamonds?

When a renowned textile expert goes MIA and the famous Wentworth heritage quilt disappears, Larkindale’s reputation as a tourist haven is at risk. Thea attempts to piece the mystery together and save the town’s investment in the quilt show before Mary-Alice is attacked again . . . with far worse results.
 
My thoughts on the book:

Thea is the co- chair for the up and coming quilt event, she didn’t expect it to be too much work but it seems like everything has fallen on her. At every corner everything seems to be falling apart, and she can’t figure out how to keep her head in the game and keep this event falling apart before it even takes off.

So I have to say that I expected this book to be on the edge of your seat type of book something to keep you guessing. I have to say for me that was not the case the book seemed very predictable from the beginning and I kept wanting to keep reading in hopes the book would get there. I wanted to have more interaction with Thea and Cole also in the book. The ending tied everything up just in case you hadn’t tied it all together, I did however feel it left you hanging at the end with one thing. Over all I will say the book was a decent read and will keep your attention from the beginning to end. Once I started I did have a hard time putting it down. If you have read other quilt of loves books this will be worth your time to read this one. If you have not this book is still worth the read, the storyline is well written.

Mistletoe Wedding Melissa McClone (Montana born books)


What's the book about:
Event planner Meg Redstone is dreaming of a white Christmas. Twinkling lights, sparkly decorations, and sprigs of strategically placed mistletoe will create a romantic holiday atmosphere for a local couple marrying at the Bar V5 dude ranch. Meg loves making dreams come true for other people, and her new guest services position at the ranch is a dream come true for her. The close-knit staff provides stability and a sense of family. If only that were enough for Meg’s young daughter, Brooklyn, who wants to spend Christmas with her father—a man she’s never met and who wants nothing to do with them.
Ranch foreman Tyler Murphy loves the holidays, but this year, his newest employee has upset Ty’s comfortable, settled lifestyle and taken over his barn with her over-the-top decorations. He admires Meg’s desire to give her kid the perfect Christmas while planning a winter wonderland wedding, but she’s forgotten her roots. He decides to show her that a Montana Christmas is more than glitter and lights, and finds himself enjoying every minute he spends with the pretty single mom and her cute little girl.
Yet, Ty resists the emotions Meg and Brooklyn bring out in him. An instant family is not on his Christmas wish list. He’s promised himself he’ll never do the dad thing again after raising his younger sister, but as the wedding day and Christmas draw near, he finds himself falling hard for both of them. Meg, however, is not interested in a romance with a cowboy like Ty, or any man for that matter. Getting her under the mistletoe is going to take a Christmas miracle . . . or a little help from Santa.

My thoughts on the book:
This is such a sweet love story. I love Brooklyn I feel like even though her part was not as big in the story she made the story what it was. I love the way the story grabs you and keeps you going till the end of the story, a book that makes it hard to put down. This story really put me in the mood for Christmas. I just love love this book.

When Navy SEAL Drew Lanham sees Jenna Huntley rising out of Magnolia Bay, she reminds him of the goddess of the sea, but he has to ignore her siren’s call as he’s home on a brief leave trying to recover from a devastating mission where he lost a teammate.

My thoughts on the book:
I love Jenna and Drew's story and oh man I just love love aunt Evie.

Trading Secrets Melody Carlson


What's the book about:
Back in fifth grade, Micah Knight got an Amish pen pal, and over the years, they've exchanged many letters--and many secrets. At age seventeen, Micah finally has the chance to meet her pen pal face-to-face. The only problem is that because of confusion about her name when the pen pals were assigned, her pen pal was a boy, Zack Miller. And all this time, Micah's never told Zack that she's actually a girl! While she wants nothing more than to experience life on Zack's Amish farm, she's afraid he'll hate her for deceiving him all these years. But she makes up her mind to face the music--and that's where the fun really begins.
My thoughts on the book:

I know this book is geared towards teens but this book was really a fun read. I love how it had twist and turns and it keeps you guessing from the start to the end. I love how the book grabs you and keeps you going. There really is not a duel part in this book. The book is about a Micah a english girl who has a pen pal in the amish world, and now they get a chance to meet up and nothing seems to go right. I found it very interesting the underlay of dislike for Micah from some of the amish. I think my favorite line in the whole book was "whats more important....a mans exterior or a mans interior?"
I think the only thing I did not like was the ending I really wanted it to end a different way but it does not take away from the book at all. This book is worth the read hands down for anyone teenagers to adults either way you will be blessed by this book.

Snowbound In Montana C.J. Carmichael


What's the book about:
When Eliza Bramble signs up for a Christmas mountain ski adventure with sexy mountain guide Marshal McKenzie, she’s looking to escape the attention of a two-timing charmer and find some inner peace. Instead, a blizzard traps her in a remote mountain hideaway with Marshall and two other families in need of their own Christmas miracles.

Christmas is looking like a write-off, until Marshall suggests they make the best of what they have, and work together. The avid outdoorsman has a special touch with people…and with Eliza in particular. Soon she realizes Marshall isn’t just fixing Christmas—but her broken heart, too.

My thoughts on the book:
I love this cute little story. At one point I thought it was going to be a bit of suspense romance. It keeps you on the edge of your seat and right when you think its not going to any more it does not disappoint I love the chemistry between the characters and I just loved Kevin. He is so sweet and this book will put you in the christmas mood for sure. Such a fun and sweet read a book you will not regret buying.

Montana Maverick Debra Salonen


What's the book about:
Be careful what you wish for-
Meg Zabrinski, successful scientist, well-known environmental advocate, and tenured professor is as independent as they come in Montana. She doesn’t need a man in her life, but she does want to have a baby. She retreats to her isolated mountain cabin to write and ponder her future when Henry Firestone–an old rival and former secret crush from her distant past–drops out of the sky on Christmas Eve with three young children and a baby. Meg doesn’t believe in cosmic signs, but even she realizes she’d be crazy not to consider all her options.
The sparks that have always smoldered between them ignite a mutual passion, but when Henry Firestone makes it clear he’s done having children, Meg is forced to accept that falling in love with Henry and his ready-made family would require her to abandon her dream. Can this “Lone Wolf” assimilate into a new pack, or is this Big Sky Maverick meant to be alone?

My thoughts on the book:

Meg is set to be on her own for the holidays to get some much needed time relaxing and thinking done, all while trying to write her book so has been itching to write. Henry is set to take on trying to be the best dad and the best grandpa anyone could ask for what he doesn’t expect it panic to set in when everything around him seems to be falling apart.

I love being back in Marietta, Montana and catching up with these lovely folks, I just love this town. I loved the trueness of this book, the trueness of these people. I love being able to get loss in this book. I felt like with this story I was reading a letter from a friend and catching up instead of just reading a book. I feel like there is nothing I can say negative about this book. The chemistry between the characters and the well written storyline keeps you going from the being to the end. It will draw you in and you will have a hard time putting this book down. If you are looking for a good read with a lot of love this and not just another sappy story this is the book for you.

Part-time Princess Paula DuMond (Ladies in waiting series)


What's the book about:

Lucy Trabbicio’s a down-on-her-luck, young, American, former biker-bar cocktail waitress desperate to find a job. Lady Elizabeth Billingsley hires Lucy to travel to Fredonia, the tiny jewel of a country in the Alps, for ten days ‘tops’ to impersonate her.
Say what? How the heck is that going to happen?
In the mother of all makeovers, Elizabeth’s people teach Lucy how to dress, walk, talk, eat, be coiffed and even get naked like a European Lady.
The goal?
To keep Crown Prince Cristoph Timmel interested in Elizabeth until she finishes her unexpected, pressing personal business in the States.
But fate intervenes… Lucy meets and is wildly attracted to sexy, bad-boy Nick on the oh-so-long flights to Fredonia. Unfortunately for Lucy—Nick and Elizabeth have a hot sexual history, which Nick wants to immediately resume.
Prince Cristoph proposes marriage. What's an imposter girl to do? Elizabeth insists that she’ll make it back home in time for the wedding. Lucy accepts Cristoph’s proposal and is on the fast track to becoming a Princess but continues to fall for the wrong Prince of Fredonia—Nick. When another tiny glitch arises—someone’s trying to kill her.
The only folks helping Lucy are her wild, party hard, take-no-prisoners Ladies-in-Waiting.
When the real Lady Elizabeth decides she’s not marrying Cristoph and never returning to Fredonia, Lucy’s faced with an uncomfortable decision—continue her deception, marry the prince she’s not in love with and live a dream life albeit without Nick, her dream guy? Or tell the truth and return to poverty and oblivion?
A modern day sexy fairy tale with romance, twists and turns, LOL moments, a few tears and an empowering ending

My thoughts on the book:
 
The book is based about a girl in Chicago who has struggled because she has dealt with some tough things even though she is only 21. She is set to find a job and continue to take care of her uncle has been there for her. She finds this job online she is ready to fib her way through when she meets 3 people who are about to change her life in more ways than one, and she has no idea how much or why.

Oh where do I even begin with the book? I have never read anything by Pamela DuMond I can honestly say I really liked this book. There wasn’t a lot of deepness to the book to be honest, but sometime that’s nice to just find a fun book with lots of humor and enough depth to keep your attention from the beginning to the end of the book. The book had me laughing from the beginning. There is one part in this book there was one part towards the middle of the book that has you rethinking the whole book and how it’s playing out only to turn the page and find out that it was not what you thought. Seriously, though if you are looking for a fun read with not a whole lot of thinking to be down this is your book. I would say this book not meant for young readers as there is some strong language in it, the language is very minimal but at best would not recommend for young readers.

Bachelor at her Bidding Kate Hardy


What's the book about:
Your date with Parisian-trained chef Ryan Henderson promises you’ll get the best meal of your life cooked especially for you. His Red Velvet cheesecake is to die for – but we know he has even better desserts up his sleeve…
How to win a girl in ten cakes…
When Dr. Rachel Cassidy comes back to Marietta with a broken heart and a divorce under her belt, going to a Bachelor Auction fund-raiser doesn’t sound like her idea of a good time – and when her sister and friends “buy” her a dinner date with sexy Parisian-trained pastry chef Ryan Henderson, that sounds even worse.
Ryan doesn’t have time for dating – he’s put his dreams to one side and come back to Marietta to look after his sick grandmother. But when he agrees to help a charity fundraiser by offering to cook a special meal to one lucky bidder, he gets more than he bargains for and discovers a woman he might just dare to let himself fall in love with.
Then tragedy strikes, just when Rachel and Ryan think they might have a future, opening up old scars and pushing them apart.
And if they’re to stand a chance of getting back together, then Ryan’s going to have to be seriously inventive. Can he win the love of his life with ten cakes?

My thoughts on the book:
Sometime doing something you don't want to do puts you in touch with someone who may have your best interest at heart. Rachel moved back to Marietta feeling a bit broken and bruised only to have to deal with small town gossip which left her feeling lonely and empty. Ryan is back in Marietta to help his grandma after all she has done for him its the least he can do for her not that she is aging and getting sick, however he come back broken and not ready to deal with anything other then cooking so really get food for Grey's and helping his grandma as she ages. I really loved this book it was so "sweet" and I loved how even though both are broken that is not was the storyline was built on. The chemistry in the book has you turning each page from beginning to the end just to see what is going to happen next. The story really does leave you with a mouth watering feeling in the end. Cake and Chocolate is a way to win most people over but will it work to ask for forgiveness?

The Bachelor's Baby Dani Collins


What's the book about:
Your date with Bachelor #3 includes champagne and chocolate in the limo that collects you, a helicopter tour of Marietta and the surrounding mountains and valleys, and dinner at a five star restaurant in Great Falls. While oil baron Linc Brady wines and dines you, a main service will completely clean your home.
Who could resist this tempting offer, but Meg Canon plans to do just that. She is only home to clean out her childhood bedroom for her brother’s new step-daughter and then she’s outta her childhood small town and back to her life in Chicago, but when she meets the sexy, renegade millionaire while she’s stuck in the snow, sparks fly and Meg is tempted to maybe stay a little longer.
Linc Brady is new in town and happy to help a kid in need, but this? Technically he doesn’t owe Meg a damned thing after she bids on him, after setting him up for the Marietta bachelor auction in the first place, but her high-class city polish is his fatal weakness and makes her impossible to forget. When she agrees to come home with him, he makes it clear he’s a confirmed bachelor. This is a one-night thing. One night that turns into nine months and maybe a lifetime…?
My thoughts on the book:
 Linc is new to Marietta, when he's headed into town he pulls over to help Meg, who grow up in Marietta and is home "escaping". Things don't go good that first meeting, but later on when they run into each other things get really interesting. The chemistry in the book between the characters comes on strong from the beginning. The story builds from there. I can't say it keeps you guessing through the whole book but its definitely sizzling through the whole book.  Meg works hard to remember whats important which to her is to find where she comes from and whats important to her which is family I think in the end, she finds something far more interesting and more important that she realizes thats been under her nose and she didn't realize it, but in the process found a lot more. This love story is short and sweet but just like the other books in the series is worth the read.

Bound to the Bachelor Sarah Mayberry

 

What's the book about:
Your date with Marietta local Beau Bennett includes a day on the slopes at Big Sky Resort, complete with a sumptuous meal in the Resort’s fanciest fine dining restaurant and door-to-door transport. Dig deep to secure the attentions of one of Montana’s most eligible – and elusive – bachelors.
Lily Taylor knows Beau Bennett dislikes her, but that won’t stop her from asking him to volunteer for the Bachelor Auction she’s organized to help her friend Molly provide for her tragically injured son, Josh. If Beau’s gorgeous face, piercing blue eyes and chiseled body inspires the women of Marietta to dig into their pockets for a good cause, then Lily will do whatever it takes to secure his participation.
Beau Bennett isn’t sure how he wound up on the auction block being eyed up by hundreds of eager women, but he knows who to blame for it – Lily Taylor, the sexy, distracting, off-limits best friend of his kid sister. As far as he’s concerned, the sooner this nightmare is over, the better.
The last thing either of them expects is for Lily to wind up bidding on – and winning – Beau, or that their date will lead to Beau stepping in to save Lily when her past comes back to haunt her. As Beau does his best to keep Lily safe, they discover that maybe they don’t dislike each other quite as much as they thought.
In fact, maybe it’s just the opposite…

My thoughts on the book:

WOW where do I start with this book in one word AMAZING!!! Lily has been on the run since she was 16 and that has not stopped her from living the life on a day to day bases not hoping for much from tomorrow. Beau has spent the last five years working hard with little on his mind then getting his business into the black. He feels like he always has a verbal sparring partner when it comes to Lily. When he feels tricked by her he is not happy but he never backs out on his word and this time he won’t even if he feels like it. From the first chapter to the last page the chemistry is so strong that if has you turning the pages to find out what is going to happen. This read is short and sweet but has a lot of action that you find yourself left wanting so much more. This is such a fun love story and Marrietta is back so you find yourself getting caught up just a little in the wonderful town in Montana.

Barbecue and Bad News Nancy Naigle (An Adams Grove Novel Book 6)


What's the book about:

Welcome to Adams Grove…where the barbecue isn’t the only thing that sizzles.
Savannah Dey politely agreed to attend her ex-husband’s wedding, but she’d be grateful for any reason to get out of it…which is why the speeding ticket from the handsome sheriff of Adams Grove is both a surprise and a reprieve. With one quick call to her editor, the aspiring columnist finds herself with a new assignment and the perfect excuse to get closer to the man who pulled her over. Now, all she needs is a way to deal with all the bad memories the small town dredges up…
Sheriff Scott Calvin can’t forget the woman who set off his radar, but he’s determined to send Savannah on her way. He’s done making bad choices, and this beautiful city gal is sure to leave Adams Grove once she finishes her story. By the time she’s stirred up a hornet’s nest, he’s already falling for her. Will trouble bind them together, or will her secrets tear them apart?
 
My thoughts on the book:


Life is not always what you hope for; at least that is what Savannah keeps telling herself in order to make peace with the past. She has spent years hiding and running by working her tail off and the day of your ex-husbands wedding it no different. What she did not expect is that speeding even a few over would get her pulled over.

Adam Grove’s sheriffs Scott Calvin once again has decided that bachelorhood was a lot better than continuing to end up with the wrong person. When we pull over Savannah Dey he just wanted he to be on her way and he was taken back by her choose to stick around for the parade.

This book was a fun read it did have some serious moments but over all I loved the characters in the small town. I have not read anything by Nancy Naigle before I can say that the storyline did not disappoint at all. The did have a few slow parts but they were quick and didn’t really take from the story overall. If you are looking for a fun read with a lot of fun characters with lots of personality then this book is so worth the read, either way this book is worth the buy.

Stealing Hearts Erika Marks A Magnolia Bay Love Story


What's the book about:

Bartender Mick Atwell has one more commitment before he leaves Magnolia Bay for Colorado: help his best friend, Tim, get his new wine bar POUR ready in time for its Valentine’s Day grand opening. But when Tim’s little sister Lucy breezes into town unexpectedly from New York for a visit, Mick doesn’t see how they’ll keep to their tight schedule—any more than he sees how this beautiful, spirited woman could possibly be the same irresponsible “kid” Tim has been complaining about for years…

Despite her carefree smile, Lucy Waverly hasn’t come back to Magnolia Bay for a vacation—she’s come home to hide. After discovering her boss at the gallery is selling forgeries, she needs to lay low and figure out a plan to get herself out of this dangerous mess—a plan which can’t include falling for her brother’s sexy best friend, no matter how safe he makes her feel, or how his smoldering eyes turn her inside out.

Mick has one foot out the door, but when Lucy's troubles follow her to Magnolia Bay, they are thrust together to keep one step ahead of danger and get POUR open in time. Soon the man who lives by his plans is wondering if the woman who lives by chance may not be worth

My thoughts on the book:

This book is about 2 people on the run from something but definitely not on the run together and both hiding something from the other. Mac is working hard to help a old friend out and help him set to open a new bar, when Tim is called away everything falls in Mac's lap. Lucy knows her brother thinks she's a failure but she thinks this will top it all and this time its not her fault well not really anyways. I love the silliness in the book between Tim and Lucy, and I loved Lucy's can do attitude and big heart with just about everything. Mac oh my can you say HOT and Trouble with a capital T. Mac and the chemistry he has really sets the tone for the book from the very beginning. This book will not fail you if you are looking for smoken hot and steamy with a whole lot of mystery then this book will not let you down. I had a hard time putting it down its a quick read but a good read. You won't be let down and it will keep you going to the very end.

Where the Road Takes Me Jay McLean


What's the book about:
Chloe has one plan for the future, and one plan only: the road. She’s made a promise to herself: don’t let anyone in, and don’t let anyone love her. She’s learned the hard way what happens if she breaks her rules. So she’s focused on being invisible and waiting until she can set out on the road—her dream of freedom, at least for a little while.

Blake Hunter is a basketball star who has it all—everything about him looks perfect to those on the other side of his protective walls. He can’t let anyone see the shattered pieces behind the flawless facade or else all his hopes and dreams will disappear.

One dark night throws Chloe and Blake together, changing everything for Blake. For Chloe, nothing changes: she has the road, and she’s focused on it. But when the so-called perfect boy starts to notice the invisible girl, they discover that sometimes with love, no one knows where the road may lead

My thoughts on the book:

I have to say when I first started this book out I was kind of turned off by all the strong language, The story and the book its self is amazing and I think that it was well written and could have been that much better without the language. Now that being said I really, really liked this book, it was not what I expected at all. Two young adults faced with life in a harsh way and how they set to deal with it is amazing. I loved the small side story of Josh and Tommy they had just as much to do with this story and making it. This book deals with a lot of hard things and a lot of love, but overall the story will not disappoint. Once I started reading it I had a hard time stopping, the book was just that good. Hard to put down for sure.
