Until You Denise Grover Swank- Bachelor Brotherhood #2




Description:
Never settle down. Ever.

Workaholic Lanie Rogers lives a completely nomadic lifestyle. Her job keeps her on the move, and relationships are a complication she doesn't need. That is, until she meets Mr. Tall, Dark, and Hotness at a pre-wedding party. Complicated? Maybe. But lately, Lanie's life has been missing a little something---and sexy playboy Tyler Norris offers something she definitely can't refuse.

Tyler has always been a little too popular with women for his own good. Ever since he and his buddies vowed to remain bachelors, Tyler figured he was safe from temptation. Lanie and her gorgeous brown eyes are about to prove him so, so wrong. With one kiss, the heat is intense. After one night, it's pure combustion. It was supposed to be a no-strings fling---until these two commitment-phobes each discover the one undeniable exception to their rule.


My thoughts on the book:

Tyler has his own string of women but when things go south with one and his buddies and him to vow to remain bachelors he knows this is what he needs to do no matter how many women his best friends fiancé sends his way. Lanie has seen how well relationships work just watching her parents relationship. Work seems to be up in the air for that matter, life seems to be up in the air. Can she figure it all out or is it just her cousin's coming wedding and all the events that is making her rethink everything?
This book is somewhat predictable and although its predictable its super good. Both main characters a broken and a searching and trying to find themselves even though they find them at a impasse. I loved Eric and how much he played a huge rule in the story. I really enjoyed the story and I really enjoyed how the characters didn't seem fake but more like catching up friends. This book does have adult language/scenes in it so it may not be suitable for all readers. I really enjoyed this group of friends and can't wait to read more. They are a close bunch of misfits just trying to keep it all together.

Toughest Cowboy in Texas Carolyn Brown- Happy Texas Novel



Description:
The Spark of an Old Flame
Last time Lila Harris was in Happy, Texas, she was actively earning her reputation as the resident wild child. Now, a little older and wiser, she's back to run her mother's café for the summer. Except something about this town has her itching to get a little reckless and rowdy, especially when she sees her old partner-in-crime, Brody Dawson. Their chemistry is just as hot as ever. But he's still the town's golden boy-and she's still the wrong kind of girl.

Brody hasn't had much time lately for anything other than ranching. Running the biggest spread in the county and taking care of his family more than keeps him busy. All that responsibility has him longing for the carefree days of high school-and Lila. She may have grown up, but he still sees that spark of mischief in her eyes. Now he's dreaming about late-night skinny dipping and wondering how he can possibly resist the one woman he can never forget...


My thoughts on the book:

Lila and Brody use to be two peas in a pod all against there family wishes. When Lila comes home to help sell her moms old diner she tries to keep on the straight an narrow and keep her wild ways in the past. Brody can't believe his luck that he might get a second chance with Lila. But can he stand up to his mom and Grandma finally and find a way to prove he is worthy of her or will it all be just to much since she's only there for the summer?
My favorite part of this whole book was how both characters went to the animals to talk there troubles out I loved hows true that is. I really enjoyed Lila and her stubbornness and how she was someone who could also be very vulnerable. I felt that Brody was super reserved for a lot of this book. I really enjoyed Jase and his banter he and Kacey seemed to really pop up throughout the book and add a fun and heartfelt feeling to the book and I hope they both have a story coming because I can't wait to read theres. Over all in parts this book dragged a little bit but was a super fun read. This book does have adult language/scenes so may not be suitable for all ages.

The Cowboy's Rebellious Bride Laurie LeClair- The McCall Brothers series #1




Description:

Best friends for life. That was their pact.

Feisty, spitfire Hannah Prescott yearns to get the bulls she raises to the top rodeo circuit finals. Being a woman in a male-dominated career means she fights harder for what she wants, and romance plays no part in her goals. But when everything's on the line and her best friend asks her to play pretend, what's a girl to do?

Sexy, life of the party cowboy Cody McCall is determined to save the legacy of his family’s ranch and give his beloved, widowed grandfather something to live for again. Options are limited until he hits on the perfect plan–pretending to marry the girl who’s been his confidante and friend all these years. After stealing sweet kisses with Hannah, Cody starts to dream of something more permanent...if he can only convince Hannah to agree that the move from friendship to marriage is worth the fight. He wants a forever bride, but there's only one cowgirl he desires.
My thoughts on the book:

Hannah is struggling with the haunting past mistakes of her mother and her father. She want to be someone but doesnt want to let anyone in in fear of being hurt again. She has a best friend and her bulls what more could she ask for?
Cody has loved Hannah as his best friend for their whole lives. She's been there for the good, the bad, and the ugly but when faced with loosing his family farm he wants her by his side. But when life throws a curve ball he wonders if unconditional love is enough for both of them and his family. 
Wow oh wow I just loved this book, its a good clean romance no swear words not adults scenes. I loved that struggles between the main characters, I super enjoyed the stubbornness and pigheadedness of the main characters. I enjoyed the more important message of family. Family is so important and that is made clear through out this book. I can't wait to read more about the McCalls and their fighting spirits. Seriously you can't go wrong with this book.

Peace in the Valley Ruth Logan Herne - Double S Ranch Series #3



Description:
In spite of their differences, Trey Walker Stafford knows he owes his life to cowboy and legendary rancher Sam Stafford—the uncle who rescued him after his parents’ death. Trey had left the Double S Ranch to pursue music against Sam’s wishes, but returns to central Washington when he learns he’s the best match for a procedure that could save Sam’s life. Although Trey’s found country music fame and success, he’s also endured the tragic loss of his wife. He croons about love, but struggles with a yawning emptiness he can’t explain. 
 
Overwhelmed by a growing list of challenges, but mistrustful of Stafford men, single mother Lucy Carlton reluctantly accepts Trey’s help to revive her crumbling farm when Sam instructs him to repay the overdue debt to her family.
 
As the two grow closer, Trey slowly begins to open his heart to this beautiful woman and strives to let go of the grief he’s held for years. Lucy has a complicated history of her own. Can Trey accept her as she is, learn to forgive the past, and find the elusive peace he's sought for so long?


My thoughts on the book:
The Stafford boys have never had it easy Trey should know that well but when faced with a decision to help or walk away he feel like deep down in his soul that he is missing something in his life so no matter what the decision is he needs to feel whole. Lucy doesn't trust any of the Stafford men, but when one seems "crash" into her life she feels like she can't escape them at all. Can she learn to trust the Stafford's when they reach out to help her or is she better off with out them?
I am sure this is the last book in the series however I want so much more. I love the Stafford's, I love how the author made this family the whole family imperfect and how they each faced a set of struggles, and Trey being the Nashville country star was faced with some through out this book. I truly enjoyed this story it held my attention throughout and keeps you wanting more with each page. I noticed a pattern in this series there seem to be a small drag in each one of the book this one included however it was very minor and quickly get right back in and it leaves you wanting so much more. You really can not go wrong with this series such amazing books.

Maybe This Love Jennifer Snow Colorado Ice #2



Description:
THE GAME OF HIS LIFE

Hockey player Ben Westmore has some serious skills---on and off the ice---and he's not above indulging in the many perks of NHL stardom. When a night in Vegas ends in disaster, he realizes two things: 1) it's time to lie low for a while, and 2) he needs a lawyer---fast. But the smoking-hot woman who walks into his office immediately tests all his good intentions.

Olivia Davis doesn't need anyone derailing her career---or her dreams of starting a family---least of all a skirt-chasing player like Ben. But soon he's unleashing a full-court press to convince her that he's the real deal. She's slowly falling for his sweet, rugged charm, but with so much on the line, Olivia has to decide whether Ben can truly change---or if he's just playing the game.



My thoughts on the book:

Ben is in hot water it seems he ran off and got married and now he needs to get divorced like it last year. When one of the hottest women gives him a run for his money in like the first 5 minutes of seeing her, he knows he needs to know her better and more then anyone else. Olivia has a reputation in the court room for her no holds bar when it comes to sports figures and famous people. When she is given a new case she starts to wonder about her life and about what she wants in the future. Can they both get there lives together and will they be able to find "home" in each other or will the media destroy any chance at it?
I found this book a super fun read. I really enjoyed the independence of Olivia but also her softer side that leaves her feeling like your catching up with your best friend. I loved the back in forth and the hold no bards between Ben and Olivia. I really enjoyed the friendships between Owen and Ben and Madison and Olivia. I really loved Madison I want to know her story she had this spunk that jumped off the pages in this book and she had this fun attitude. In the end of this book I wanted more it felt like it was summed up but it still felt like it was missing something, other then that this book was super fun and I can't wait to read more about the Westmore brothers and there families.

*******CLOSED******Interview with Author Sarah Price and Giveaway of her new book The Faded Photo




Sarah,
This book was amazing, thank you for taking the time to do this interview.
When did you decide to become a writer?
Ever since I was a little girl. I probably wrote my first story as soon as I learned how to write. I spent a lot of summers locked in my room, typing on an old Selectric typewriter. Drove my family crazy with the clack, clack, clack of the keys.  Ha ha.
I wrote several novels in high school and submitted them to publishers. It wasn’t as easy to publish in those days because there was no Internet. Yes, I grew up in the world without the Internet.  So I had to photocopy novels, mail them in big boxes with return postage and wait weeks—sometimes MONTHS! —for that good old rejection letter. Boo hoo!
Once I DID get a contract. I was fourteen-years-old. Obviously I couldn’t sign it because I was underage.  I gave it to my parents but I’m not certain they ever read it over. Anyway, when they didn’t talk to me about the contract, I did a lot of reflection and decided that I wouldn’t pursue it.  I figured I had a whole lifetime to write and publish.  Who wants to achieve a life dream at fourteen? Right? :D

Do you have an author that inspires you or do you have a favorite author you like to read?
My favorite authors are Jane Austen, George Elliot, Thomas Hardy, Margaret Mitchell, John Steinbeck, and Victor Hugo. You simply cannot go wrong with the classics. People who haven’t read classics haven’t really read. Those writers know how to build a story and develop characters in a way that modern writers do not.
But the author who influenced me the most—as a child and even today! —is Laura Ingalls Wilder (don’t laugh!),
Growing up, Laura Ingalls Wilder was my super-hero. I dreamed that I was her, living a hundred years later. That didn’t work out so well for me (although I do live on a farm six months out of the year and I’m determined to visit all of her homesteads…been to Kansas and MIssouri…just need DeSmet, Pepin, and Florida!).

I really enjoyed Frances and her fighting strength, I also so loved Andy he seems to have such a sweet caring spirit, out of all the characters in this book do you have a favorite one?
Charlotte is a great character and you will likely see her show up in another story. She’s based a little on my friend Gina McBride, one of my BFFLs. Like Charlotte, Gina tells it like it is and without any emotion. If my house is a mess, she will let me know. If she hates an outfit I’m wearing, she doesn’t hold back. When I’m on the ledge, she is the voice of reason who talks me back through that open window.

When I was going through my divorce, she was the only person who stood by me. It was a hard time for me because I was raised to believe that people just do not get divorced.  I literally waited until after my grandmother passed away because I was so ashamed. I felt like a failure. My own family wasn’t supportive in the beginning, but Gina was there.

Charlotte is that friend. She knows that Frances is not perfect and yet she loves her. And Frances knows that she can count on her throughout the good, the bad, and the in-between.


I know this is not your typical Amish book, what inspired you to write this book?
There is a photograph that I have from when I was a little girl. The woman who lived down the road did not have any children and wanted to take a photograph for Christmas. For some reason, she wanted me in the photo. On a snowy Saturday, my mom and I went down for the photographer. The woman was in a red sleigh and I stood next to her, a big smile on my face (and probably a wad of gum hidden in my mouth!).
Later, I learned that she died of breast cancer. I often wondered about her story and that was the catalyst for The Faded Photo.
And, of course, having survived breast cancer, I wanted to share some of my experience. While the novel is not my story, there are components of it that are true, which I didn’t realize until someone else (probably Gina! ha ha) pointed out to me. In the beginning, people would come to the Chemo Cocktail Lounge with me, but after the first two or three sessions, I wouldn’t let anyone come. It was just easier to do it alone.
People don’t know how to act with someone who has cancer. And I was a-typical. I truly was very “whatever” about my cancer. Maybe I should have been more panicky or distraught.  think my laid-back attitude gave people the freedom to make a big deal about how my cancer impacted them. I got lost in the shadows of my own disease. It was a little irritating because I kept thinking, “If I can be so positive, why do other people have to be so dramatic?”
I was often sorry that I had told anyone about it! Of course, I had so many complications because of bad reconstruction that I couldn’t have hidden it from them…but what if? That thought was in the back of my mind and helped form The Faded Photo.

Do you have a favorite place you like to write?
I write all day and night, with on set time of day being a scheduled time. I do, however, love writing at night while snuggled in bed (and usually with my parrot on my head).  There’s something about the darkness that surrounds me that helps shut out the rest of the world…no distractions OR interruptions. However, between dogs, Coco, and Marc, that doesn’t usually last very long. ha ha
These days, I’m spending a lot of time at our farm in Flanders, NJ. I write in one of our trailers (camper). Coco is almost always on my shoulder or my head. She’s my velcro bird for sure.


I love how you do morning coffee's on Facebook and you are so transparent is there something fun about yourself that your readers don't know?
Where oh where do I start? :D
When I was 18, while in college, I ran away and traveled with the circus. Later, that same year, I lived in a tent in Alaska for six weeks while on an archeological dig. A moose and her calf ran through our dig one day and we all had to dart up trees.
When I was 20, I worked in Argentina for a while, reprogramming English applications into Spanish for a computer company. Yes, I’m a techno-geek.
And I hate talking on the phone. I never check my voice mail. I think I still have some unopened voicemails from two years ago on my phone.

Has Marc ever inspired any of your Characters?
Marc. Oh Marc, Marc, Marc. (smile). Yes. He has inspired two characters. The first should not come as a surprise. In Cowgirl Cat, Marcus is Marc. He has this weird relationship with Cat. They can be the best of friends or fight like cats and marc. <—get it?  For years, they battled over slippers. When Cat was little, she hated shoes and would bury ONE (just one) in the woods. She was smart. If you lose all the left shoes, you can’t wear ANY shoes. So when Marc came along and we got married, she rebelled against his slipper rule. That first Christmas, he gave her twenty pairs. And, of course, she lost all of them. ;-)
The other character might surprise my diehard readers. Rosanna Zook’s husband, Reuben, is based loosely on Marc. Ironically, when Marc read the book, he didn't recognize himself in the character. In the beginning of our marriage, there were some bumps in the road as everyone adapted to the new family dynamic. And I suffered severe PTSD from my previous marriage and, consequently, terrible divorce. After years of being emotionally, psychologically, and verbally abused, you develop a strong fight or flight mentality. It makes you stronger but it also makes you weaker. Like Reuben, Marc stepped up to plate to help me through it.
You’ll probably see another Marc-type character in one of my upcoming women’s fiction books.

Can you tell us what’s next on the horizon for your next book?
In October, I have two books being released.
First is a women’s fiction book called Heavenly Blues that deals with the issue of prescription drug abuse. The protagonist, Laura Reese, is a nurse with a crazy work schedule, demanding boss, and needy family. Sound familiar? I bet most women read that sentence and groan…they already connect with Laura. But when a nurse begins to abuse her prescriptions, you know things will spiral out of control.
Fun fact: You may recognize Laura as the nurse who takes care of Frances in The Faded Photo.
The second book is Belle, an Amish variation of Beauty and the Beast. Now, I often hear that readers don’t take the Amish genre seriously and that disheartens me, mostly because I totally get where they are coming from. A lot of the books are “boy meets girl at the fence, a miscommunication breaks them up, somehow they get back together, the end.”
However, I challenge anyone who scoffs at the Amish genre to read one of my books. I strive to provide an authentic and accurate portrayal of the Amish culture—which is easy since my family background is Mennonite and I’ve been living/staying with Amish families for over thirty years—while creating a solid literary work that steals time from the reader who, hopefully, gets lost in powerful stories. My books do not focus on the Amish, but on the characters that develop and grow within such an unique setting.   In fact, they deal with similar issues that regular people do: depression, domestic violence, death, substance abuse, even rape. There’s no fluff in my books, trust me.





A former college professor, bestselling author Sarah Price began writing full-time after she was diagnosed with cancer in 2013. She has written more than twenty novels, but The Faded Photo is her first foray into women’s fiction. Drawing on her own experiences as a survivor of both breast cancer and domestic violence, Sarah explores the issues that touch—and shape—women’s lives. Sarah lives in Morristown, New Jersey, with her husband and two children.

Chance Encounter SJ McCoy



Description:
Chance knew love once—a long time ago. She died when they were eighteen and the best of him died with her. Since then his work on a ranch in Montana has allowed him to keep his distance from people and from happiness. Eighteen years later, he may be ready to start living again—maybe. He’s watched all his friends find love and embark on the next stage of their lives. Part of him would like to do the same; part of him would rather cling to the past. 

He’s hoping that a trip to the Oregon Coast, and a couple of weeks away from his normal life, might help him figure out how he can move forward and maybe even be happy. 

It’s taken him eighteen years to get to this point, but a chance encounter on the beach will make him want to figure it all out in just two weeks. 

He’s come a long way, but can he really open his heart up to happiness—and to Hope?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Chance Encounter is the first of three books in A Chance and a Hope Series.
These are not standalone reads. In fact, when you get to the end of this story, you may be faced with a cliffhanger – or you may not. The choice is yours!

What do I mean? Well, when you reach the end of Chapter Twenty you’ll be left with a warm and fuzzy Happy-For-Now. Then you’ll be faced with a choice – read on, all the way up to the edge of a cliff where I’ll leave you hanging, or stop right where you are and wait for Book Two to come out on June 13 and read Chapter Twenty-One then. If you love a cliffy, you can have one. If you detest a cliffy, you don’t have to deal with it! And if you hate waiting for the next books in a trilogy, don't worry because they are coming out one month apart:

Book Two: Finding Hope releases June 13
Book Three: Give Hope a Chance releases July 11



My thoughts on the book:

Chance needs to find healing in his life and let go of the past. It truly sounds way easier then it really is. When he gets a two week break to help out his dad he hopes to find the closure he is looking for. Hope is in a life she is questioning everything but knows she needs to keep plugging along. When she gets news she starts to question weather or not she's been making all the best chooses or if she's been to self absorbed. Will Hope and Chance be able to get their lives put together in the two weeks away that they have, or will it all become to much?
Wow this book is wow, The emotions lots of them in a good way that make you feel deep for the characters. This storyline will have you laughing crying all with in the same page. I loved getting a chance to read this book so amazing. I was super bumped out at the end because I wanted so much more. The book has two endings you can stop at chapter 20 or you can read the cliffhanger and I love that the author gives that option it gives you a chance to choose your ending. I can't wait to finish this series. This book does have some strong language and adult scenes so may not be right for all ages, other then that this book is perfect keeps you drawn in through out and you find yourself having a hard time putting the book down, grab it you won't regret.

So Unlike Me Nikki Lynn Barrett and a Whole lot of love by Bonnie Edwards


Description:
How to survive an unexpected breakup with your ex-fiancé on national TV: 1. Hide out under the covers at home. 2. Let your agoraphobic twin sister talk you into going to Paris in her place! Lizette Monroe would be crazy to turn down her sweepstakes entering addicted twin's offer. Paris, France? It's the perfect getaway after all she's been dealing with. All she has to do is pretend to be Nola. Can't go wrong there, right? Too bad it's not France, but a small town Tennessee town. Still, it gets her out of the public eye for awhile. Enter problem number one in the form of Dirk Ramsey, Nola's childhood best friend. He's grown up, gorgeous, and has eyes for her, except he thinks she's Nola. Lizette wants nothing more than to tell him the truth, but Nola's embarrassment and shame over her current condition has her begging Lizette to keep up the charade. It wouldn't be so hard if Dirk's touch didn't awaken a part of her soul she thought was lost. Did he really have to be there at every turn, especially when the truth is closer to coming out? And when Dirk does learn he's been reminiscing with the wrong twin- the one who didn't pay much attention to him back then, will that ruin a chance to get to know the man Lizette is now having romantic feelings for?

My thoughts on the book:
Lizette has an amazing sister who she would do just about everything for but when her sister whens a contest that takes here to far off places she wonders if leaving her home would that great of an idea with all thats going on. When she finally gets to Paris she runs into a beautiful man and her sisters best friend and she needs to keep a secret from him and wonders if he will understand when it all comes out? Dirk is helping his uncle after a flood took out part of Paris and he is set to help bring as many resources he can when the sweepstake winners show up he knows some aren't happy but he also sees someone who lost contact with. HE knows she is hiding something but will he be able to connect with her again and help her out. Will they both be able to keep there hearts in tact and help Nola and Paris or will one secret crush them all?

I just loved these characters I loved how even though the author made them super rich they felt very much real and like the everyday person. I loved how it felt like you were reaching out and connecting with friends. The storyline is so well written it sucks you in and has you turning the pages just to see whats going to happen next. The book is a true romance but in the same sense there is a little bit of mystery that keeps you guessing all the way to the end. I loved the Nola and the relationship she has with Lizette also loved that she was a big part of this book and can't wait to read more about her and her struggles. Seriously grab this book you won't regret it so fun.

Murder isn't supposed to be in the cards for blackjack dealer Maddie Larsson. Detective JC Dimitrak must play his cards correctly and find the killer before an innocent woman takes the ultimate hit.

My thoughts on the book:
Ashlee is ready to heading home and feels like it time to show her son what family is all about. When she walks into a open house she gets a surprise from the past she had hope would stay there. Brick comes face to face with a past he thought he would never see again and a face he had hoped his whole life to see. Will he be able to ever forgive Ashlee for leaving?
This was a super quick read and a super fun one at that. Ashlee is this super stubborn and super independent women she knows what she wants and nothing will stop her and that is very evident in this book. The storyline was super fun and the characters were fun and relatable. I really loved Cory's play in the book he added a fun play to it as well. Super fun read there is strong language and adult scenes in this book, may not be suitable for all readers.

The Priority Unit Susan Page Davis - Maine Justice series book#1



Description:
A missing man.
A mysterious computer program –
Even the people constructing it don’t know what it will do.
On the worst night of Harvey Larson’s life, his partner is killed and his wife, Carrie, walks out on him. Ten years later, the Portland, Maine police detective has learned to cope with his grief and depression. When he and the Priority Unit investigate the disappearance of software designer Nick Dunham, he meets a young woman who will change his life. Jennifer Wainthrop was the last person to admit seeing Dunham alive.
Harvey and his partner, Eddie Thibodeau, stay a step ahead of a bomber and put together the clues that tell the truth: Dunham’s kidnapping and the bombings are one case, and Jennifer is caught in the middle. News that Carrie has committed suicide may plunge Harvey back into despair. Harvey turns to God for help untangling his complicated life. He finds strength in his faith as he attempts to save Jennifer from the same grim fate that claimed Nick. But Jennifer must depend on her own wits and God alone when the killer gets too close.

My thoughts on the book:

Harvey lost his partner and his wife all in one night. Ten years goes by and it seems that life still went on and he needs to figure out what his life is all while finding out what happened to a missing man. 
Jennifer is working on a computer case and something just doesn't seem right. But when her coworker goes missing her focus becomes helping the cops any way she can. But it seems someone has it out for her. Can Harvey keep Jennifer safe and find out who's involved with the missing coworker and who has it out for him?
This book starts off kind of slow and has a lot of details. However it has a few twist and turns along the way. I thought this was a suspense book, however there is a little suspense and a lot of romance. The storyline does have some mystery to it and it keeps you intrigued. At the end I wanted to read so much more and I can't wait to find out what happens with Eddie. I really enjoyed the friendships through this book it made for a super fun read even more.

Fatal Mistake Susan Sleeman- White Knights #1


Description:
An FBI agent must protect the woman who can identify a terrorist bomber in bestselling author Susan Sleeman's riveting romantic suspense novel.

Each day could be her last...but not if he can help it.

Tara Parrish is the only person ever to survive an attack by the Lone Wolf bomber. Scared and emotionally scarred by her near death, she goes into hiding with only one plan--to stay alive for another day. She knows he's coming after her, and if he finds her, he will finish what he started.

Agent Cal Riggins has had only one goal for the past six months--to save lives by ending the Lone Wolf's bombing spree. To succeed, he needs the help of Tara Parrish, the one person who can lead them to the bomber. Cal puts his all into finding Tara, but once he locates her, he realizes if he can find her, the Lone Wolf can, too. He must protect Tara at all costs, and they'll both need to resist the mutual attraction growing between them to focus on hunting down the bomber, because one wrong move could be fatal.

My thoughts on the book:

Tara is just going about her every day life when she stubbles onto what appears to be the Lone Wolf. She gets spooked and runs, but can she out run him or will he be every step ahead. Cal gets a call that changes the investigation and throughs it all on top of its head. He just never expected to have the one victim that lived and make her the center of the investigation. Can he get to the bottom of all of this or will it continue to blow up in his face?
This book is completely on the edge of your seat you need to know whats going to happen next. If you like Dee Henderson then this book is for sure a book you will want to read. This books extremely good, it had so many twist and turns that just when you thought about stopping the author throws in a twist and you need to know whats happens. I read this in one setting because I found it hard to put down and before I knew it I was done. I can not wait for more. I so loved this team and want to know more about this fun and close group of friends.

The Faded photo Sarah Price



Description:
Some things should be kept private. Frances Snyder can never quite get her mother’s voice out of her head—how to be the perfect wife, the perfect mother. Frances’s home life is demanding, and while she’s busy seeing to everyone else’s needs, Frances doesn’t have the luxury of spare time.

So when she is diagnosed with breast cancer, she thinks that she can handle it on her own. Dealing with endless tests, brutal chemotherapy, and the looming specter of surgery, Frances chooses to face cancer on her own terms: alone. That is, until she finally understands that unexpected friendship—and unconditional love—can offer hope in the darkest hours.

With tenderness, grace, and flashes of humor, bestselling author Sarah Price draws upon her own experience as a breast cancer survivor to create a story about one woman’s determined and solitary journey into the unknown—in hopes that she’ll find her way back home.



My thoughts on the book:
Frances is on this journey and its a journey she believes is better kept under wraps, some secrets are better left that way in private. But along the process she struggles with friends, family and healing. Can she fight this her way and have it go the way she planned or will she need those close to her more then she realizes?
Where can I even begin with this book. This book hits super close to home with me. This book is not a traditional amish book that Sarah is known for but this book is just as good and just as amazing. I truly read this book in one sitting and was not going to bed till I found out what happened. I had a very much love hate relationship with Carrie and Nicholas and wanted to reach in the book and throttle Nicholas. I loved Andy his sweet spirit no matter what but a typical teenager all the same. I really enjoyed Madeline and how Sarah gave her this mystery that a made you want to know more about her. I loved how Sarah did not make this family perfect how she made them feel like you were catching up with friends rather then reading a story. This story is so worth the read and you so can not go wrong. Grab this book and then share your thoughts with me below and let me know your thoughts.

Deadly Memories Mary Alford



Description:
WOMAN WITHOUT A PAST Amnesia may be keeping Ella Weiss from remembering her past—but not from saving the little boy who's been her fellow prisoner the last seven years. After managing to escape her cell, all she wants is to find where little Joseph is being kept. Instead she runs straight into CIA agent Kyle Jennings. Kyle isn't sure if Ella is actually a kidnap victim or if she's working for the gunrunner he's been after. One thing he iscertain of is her uncanny resemblance to the wife he thought he'd buried. To save a child's life and stop a terrorist from slipping through his fingers, he'll need to uncover the secrets of Ella's past—and whether or not she's really the woman he's never stopped loving.My thoughts on the book:

Ella is trying to remember anything about her past, but it seems someone doesn't want her to remember anything. Someone has it out for her and all she know is she needs to protect the one person who stole her heart. Kyle is not sure why but it feels like Ella is hiding more then she's letting on. Is she really a killer or is she just as innocent as she might seem?
I will start off saying if you love reading authors like Dee Henderson, Dani Pettrey, or Terri Blackstock then seriously grab this book along with any others by this author they are super amazing.  This book has you on the edge of your seat and there is not a dule moment at all. You find yourself turning the pages just to see what the author throws at you next. I want to read so much more about the Team featured in this book. I think the only thing I didn't like was that it ended. The book is well worth the read.

If I Run Terri Blackstock- If I run series book #1


Description:
Casey knows the truth. But it won’t set her free.
Casey Cox’s DNA is all over the crime scene. There’s no use talking to police; they’ve failed her abysmally before. She has to flee before she’s arrested . . . or worse. The truth doesn’t matter anymore.
But what is the truth? That’s the question haunting Dylan Roberts, the war-weary veteran hired to find Casey. PTSD has marked him damaged goods, but bringing Casey back can redeem him. Though the crime scene seems to tell the whole story, details of the murder aren’t adding up.
Casey Cox doesn’t fit the profile of a killer. But are Dylan’s skewed perceptions keeping him from being objective? If she isn’t guilty, why did she run?
Unraveling her past and the evidence that condemns her will take more time than he has, but as Dylan’s damaged soul intersects with hers, he is faced with two choices: the girl who occupies his every thought is a psychopathic killer . . . or a selfless hero. And the truth could be the most deadly weapon yet.

My thoughts on the book:

Casey is on the run and she has some secrets that could get those close to her killed. Can she uncover the truth before its to late? Dylan is home from the military and is suffering from PTSD. He is looking for a job and when he is approached to find his best friends killer. When he starts to uncover some secrets he wonders if there is more to all of this then meets the eye?
I will start off saying this is NOT a romance book. This book is told in a first person narrative by both people. This book is on the edge of your seat hard to put down kind of books. The author throws twist and turns in the story through out. The way the story was written was well however the way the story starts off leaves you confused at first until it starts to truly play out. The story does end in a cliff hanger which I hate because I so want to know what happens but in a good way that means there is more to the story and there is more to play out. I can't wait to read more about Casey and hopefully Dylan. This book is worth the read and if you have never read anything by Terri Blackstock grab some of her other books they are sooo good.
