"Riptide Rumors" tour!


If the Tide Doesn’t Change, Who Will Pay the Price?

As autumn of 1916 descends upon the once-peaceful town of Sunset Cove, Anna McDowell has great hopes that the excitement of the summer will be over, now that a few of the key players in the rum-running ring have been arrested. But with a daring jailbreak getting the town in a dither again, she knows that the danger hasn’t passed for anyone in her coastal hometown.

With a mayoral election keeping tensions high and the authorities busy searching for those behind the jailbreak, Anna has plenty to keep the newspaper busy. But when her sixteen-year-old daughter begins making noises about leaving high school and abandoning dreams of college, Anna realizes that prohibition isn’t the only thing she needs to be worrying about.

How deep does the root of corruption run in their town? As she digs deeper, Anna is forced to put the concerns of her own heart on hold in an effort to save some of the people dearest to her.


My Review:
First of all, this book cover is just gorgeous - love it!  Second of all, this is such a wonderful story touching on mother daughter relationships, and has mystery and romance interwoven throughout as well.  Anna is the managing editor of the paper, which some men are none to happy about.  She finds herself trying to balance reporting the stories, doing investigations of her own and also trying to keep her teenage daughter on track.  This is such a cute little town that the story is set in and Melody really brings it to life in this story along with the time period.  Tensions are high with how society is changing and Anna is smack dab in the middle of it all.  I felt like she was the perfect main character, strong and independent and facing challenges and trying to handle things just like we all do in real life.

About the Book

all in

Book: All In  
Author: L.K. Simonds  
Genre: Women’s Fiction  
Release date: May 7, 2019

Cami Taylor: a blackjack dealer, a bestselling author, and a fraud. Cami’s boyfriend, Joel, loves her in spite of her flaws. He wants to marry her, buy a house on Long Island, and raise a family–a life that’s a million miles from Cami’s idea of happiness. Her therapist suggests compromise and trust, but Cami bolts like a deer. She breaks off the relationship and launches on a new quest for happiness, not knowing that a nasty surprise waits around the corner. What follows is a fight to the death. Who will be the one left standing?

My Review:
This is an excellent debut novel, one I highly recommend and L.K. Simonds is an author to watch for sure!  Cami, oh Cami, what a mess your life is and I could not help but feel sorry for you, but also root for you to get your life on track.  How her character is portrayed, you cannot help but feel bad for her and want to give her a shake and a good talking to.  What I loved about this book is that the details are not glossed over, real life is portrayed and the struggles and things that are faced are right there and needing to be faced before true redemption and moving on can take place.  Cami's journey throughout this book is so well-written as it is believable as this is how life can be and is; therefore making it an easy book to get lost in and not want to stop reading until the end and seeing how things end up.

More from L.K. Simonds

How I came to write ALL IN. Back in the 1990s, I was vacationing in NYC with my buddies. We got out the phonebook—as we always did while traveling—to see how many people with our last names were listed. In that thick Manhattan phonebook was one listing for a person with the same name as my friend’s. Two initials and a surname, as a single woman might’ve listed her number back in those days. The address was only a few blocks from our Midtown hotel, and we joked about calling to see if she was a long-lost cousin, who might take us to her favorite shops and restaurants. We didn’t call, but the “what if?” stuck with me. What if you did call? What if the person you called was in crisis? Or about to face a crisis? What if that serendipitous phone call resulted in a friendship that became a lifeline? That notion was the inception of ALL IN. ALL IN is my first offering as a novelist—my best writing to date. I hope you enjoy it!

New from Katherine Center!

Image result for things you save in a fire katherine centerI was so excited to see that Katherine Center was coming out with a new book as I had recently read her novel, "How to Walk Away," and her newest novel is another excellent read!  "Things You Save in a Fire" is such a great story and I felt so many emotions while reading it.  Cassie experienced a number of hurts on her sixteenth birthday and that day has led her to who she is today.  Life has been fine for Cassie as she has a great relationship with her father and she is part of a team, a family at the fire station at which she is a valuable and strong firefighter.  Faced with a suspension from the station, and contact with her estranged mother, Cassie's entire life is uprooted.  Cassie has been instructed of how to act, more like how not to act, at her new fire station as women firemen are not looked fondly on and she is determined to not really interact with her mother and become immersed in her life.  Cassie has built up barriers to protect herself all these years and she has been fine.  So, why now is she not?

I really do not even know where to begin with this as you really just have to read this book, just experience it for yourself as it is such a good book and so many lines I underlined throughout.  Cassie is such a great main character and I loved her from the start.  She is strong, determined and can definitely hold her own and I admired her for that.  However, my admiration grew even more as she allowed herself to feel, allowed herself to build relationships and allowed herself to forgive.  Forgiveness is such a strong action and Cassie is able to experience this and also help Rookie to as well.   This was seriously my very favorite scene when Cassie talks with Rookie and explains the importance of forgiving himself from something he has been holding onto for so many years.  There were so many times throughout this book I found myself laughing, holding my breath, wanting to cry and cheering for Cassie.  This is such a great book and now that I have read two books by Katherine, I realized there are five more that she has written that I have not read - so I'm off to find those to read while waiting for her next new book (hopefully soon!).

"No Greater Love" blog tour!


No Greater Love FB Banner

About the Book

No Greater Love

Book: No Greater Love  
Author: Gina Holder  
Genre: Christian Romantic Suspense  
Release date: April 30, 2019  

He said he’d never risk leaving a widow. She said she’d never love a man in uniform.

Paige McDonald collects antique literature and works at the largest bookstore in Portland, Oregon. When her grandfather, a firefighter, was killed, she vowed never to fall in love with a first responder. An old Bible leads to an unexpected discovery and disrupts everything she knows about herself, her family, and God. Her desire to know the truth sends her to the town of Whitman directly into the radar of Patrol Officer Hamilton Bryant. After the loss of his best friend and fellow officer, Hamilton vowed never to marry. He won’t risk leaving a widow. Instead, he reserves his passion for serving his family and the town he’s sworn to protect. When a series of robberies and threats against the mayor correspond with Paige’s sudden appearance in Whitman, their paths intersect.

My Review:
I knew from the very first page that I was going to love this book, really the first few sentences as I too love books, bookstores, the smell of the pages, the feel of them, it all.  Paige and I are soul sisters on this! After, Paige makes a discovery in an old family Bible, her world is disrupted and turned upside down as she seeks answers and learning about who she really is. I really enjoyed this book as I was completely drawn into the story and the lives of the characters.  The secrets and family piece really adds an element of intrigue and suspense and the romance sprinkled throughout makes it an excellent mix.  The story flows so nicely and I am eager to read the next book in this series!

Fun Facts about No Greater Love (Don’t worry, spoilers weren’t invited to this party.)
  1. I love the smell of coffee, but I don’t like the taste. I asked my coffee-loving friends on social media for their favorite coffee drinks to use in the story.
  2. Tyler, Tony, and Timothy Thorne were modeled after three brothers I saw playing on a beach in Hurgadah, Egypt.
  3. R. Electronics was based on an actual store my husband and I saw in a mall.
  4. When Paige and Hamilton meet, he is looking for a runaway goat. This happened to my husband and me. We were out admiring large mansions, when a police officer pulled up behind us. We thought we were in trouble for loitering. Instead, he asked if we’d seen a goat running around the neighborhood.
  5. Hamilton’s deceased best friend is named after my childhood friend, William Donnelly. Will was a U.S. Marine killed in battle in Afghanistan. Like the character in the story, he got married only two months before his death and was killed on Thanksgiving Day. No Greater Love is dedicated in his memory.
  6. The character Jessie Faye is named after an elderly woman my husband knew while living in Fossil, Oregon.
  7. The diners in the food court scene were written from personal observations at a food court in Colorado Springs.
  8. While Whitman is a fictional town, it is modeled after the real town of Enterprise, Oregon, at the foot of the Wallowa Mountains.
  9. Several locations in the book are real establishments in Enterprise, including Heavenly’s Restaurant, the Espresso and Car Wash, El Bajios, and the Bowlby stone courthouse.
  10. There are several beloved pets in No Greater Love, including a parrot named Gerald, a Persian cat named Delilah, and a labradoodle named Bruce. All the pets have names except for Aunt Hattie’s Dalmatians.
  11. Paige McDonald works at Powell’s City of Books in Portland, Oregon when the story opens. Powell’s lays claim to the status of the “largest independent used and new bookstore in the world.”
  12. Portland is the fifth city in America with the most coffee shops per capita.
  13. The statistics for the Whitman school—100% graduation rate and a 1:13 student-teacher ratio is not fictional. They are the actual statistics of the Enterprise High School.
  14. Behind the cash registers at Powell’s, there is a fake dictionary definition—“Smell bound: held as if under the spell by the scent of books.” This is the inspiration behind the opening scene of No Greater Love. The word, Bibliosmia, means the smell of old books.

"Yours Truly, Thomas"

Cover ArtAbout the book:

For three years, Penny Ercanbeck has been opening other people's mail. 
Dead ends are a reality for clerks at the dead letter office, and she dreams of something more--a bit of intrigue, perhaps a taste of romance. When she comes across a letter from a brokenhearted man to his one true love, it becomes her mission to place this lost letter into the hands of its intended recipient.
But when Penny's undertaking leads her to the intriguing man who touched her soul with his words, everything grows more complicated. She wants to find the rightful owner of the letter, and yet . . . she finds herself caring--perhaps too much--for the one who wrote it.
My Review:
I really enjoyed this return to Azure Springs in this book!  Penny is a great main character and I found myself connecting with her right away.  Penny is intrigued by the letters she reads and the lives of the people she is reading about.  However, this leads her to yearning for more in her own life as well.  As she sets on a journey to find the owner of this letter, she finds herself becoming more immersed in the writer's life and seeking to find out more.  I felt like this book moved along at a good pace and I loved the letters interspersed and how they told stories of other individuals and characters, weaving multiple stories together.  This is a great read for those whom enjoy historical romance.  

Rachel Fordham is the author of The Hope of Azure Springs. She started writing when her children began begging her for stories at night. She'd pull a book from the shelf, but they'd insist she make one up. Finally, she paired her love of good stories with her love of writing and hasn't stopped since. She lives with her husband and children on an island in the state of Washington.

Release date: June 11, 2019

In this high-stakes romantic suspense novel where tensions mount on both sides of the border, bestselling author Kelly Irvin explores what happens when the past explodes against the present and the only person you can turn to is the one who broke your heart.

When a college student dies at Gabriella’s feet after muttering her brother’s name, vicious gun smugglers believe she knows too much. And they’re determined to make sure she suffers the same fate. With no one else to turn to, Gabriella reunites with her former fiancĂ©, homicide detective Eli Cavazos, to investigate the dead man’s murder and her brother’s disappearance. In a desperate race against time, Gabriella and Eli are determined to clear her brother and find him before the gun smugglers can kill them both. Bit by bit, they tear away the masks worn by men masquerading as law-abiding citizens. No one can be trusted. Working as a team forces Gabriella and Eli to face the problems that ended their relationship. She realizes she’s the one who needs to learn to forgive, but Eli must also learn to trust her with his secrets. This ragtag team must fight a powerful ring of criminals protected by the very institutions that should prosecute them in an all-out battle that may cost them their lives.


My Review:
I was immediately sucked into the story on the very first page and found myself holding my breath and feeling anxious alongside Gabby as she hears a noise in the alley at midnight.  Enter in Gabby's former fiancĂ©e and while the danger isn't what it might have been, it is the start of a whole other type as Gabby vowed to never become involved with him again, but now she feels like she has no choice.  As Gabby and Eli try to find out information and the whereabouts of Gabby's brother and also keep themselves alive, they are confronted with so many choices as they are not sure who to trust and what is the best course of action to take.  This book is such a good mix of suspense and romance and I kept on turning the pages so fast as I needed to know what was going to happen next.  I highly recommend this book for those whom enjoy romantic suspense, this is a must-read for you!

"Married to a Stranger" blog tour


Married to a stranger FB Banner

About the Book

Married to a stranger
Book: Married to a Stranger
Author: Laura V. Hilton
Genre: Christian Amish Romance Fiction
Release date: July 2, 2019

He marries her out of need. She marries him to escape. What does love have to do with it?
When her father falsely accuses a stranger of dishonoring her, Bethel Eicher finds herself promised in marriage to a man she’s never met. Not exactly a dream come true, but since she has spent several years caring for her handicapped mother, she’s already considered an old maid at twenty-five—and she longs to escape her lonely life as permanent caregiver. When newly-called Amish preacher Gideon Kaiser learns he’s been accused of a dishonorable act, he’s horrified. But his wife died in childbirth and his baby needs a mother, so he figures marrying a woman he’s never met could be beneficial. How can Bethel and Gideon possibly make their marriage work—especially when the truth behind the accusations is revealed?

My Review:
I love it when the book I am reading has a strong, inspiring message and leaves me feeling hopeful at the end and this is one of those books!  "Married to a Stranger" has strong characters who are admirable and ones that I found myself rooting for right from the start.  Both Bethel and Gideon are dealing with horrific accusations and situations and  yet they remain strong and true to their convictions and trust in God.  There is so much wrapped up in this story - deceit, love and hope to  name a few.  This in addition to the characters and descriptive writing, this book is a must read for those whom enjoy Amish fiction.

Read an Excerpt 

He marries her out of need. She marries him to escape. What does love have to do with it?
He’s falsely accused of dishonoring her. She longs to escape her father’s household. Can they make their forced, arranged marriage work?
“Gideon, choose love. Not loss.” Lizzie gave a quiet sigh and then her eyes rolled back in her head.
“It’s a lie.” Bethel straightened. “Whoever he described has never touched me. Nobody has.” Either he marry the woman who’d accused him of sexually assaulting her—a woman he had nein recollection of ever meeting, not to mention the fact that he had never touched any woman besides his beloved frau—or his name would be dragged through the mud for a sin he hadn’t committed, a sin for which he’d be forced to kneel and confess. It wouldn’t do any gut to ask der Herr for this stranger—what was his name, anyway?—to be nice to her, because it seemed apparent Gott hadn’t heard one word of her endless prayers over the last few days. Either that, or He callously chose to disregard her requests. It was probably the only wedding nacht in history during which the groom had hidden in the basement and raged, huddled upon and beneath a pile of blankets for warmth—warmth that never seemed to reach his core—before he cried himself into a fitful sleep. At least, with this situation being handled directly between Gideon and both their fathers, with nein preacher or bishop involvement, none of the potentially damaging dirty laundry was hung out to dry. The condemning stares from Gideon’s family members seemed to bore into Bethel’s back the entire time she prepared their breakfast and then washed the dishes. She should’ve packed her bags and run away instead of going through with the wedding. Which was probably what her sister had done, kum to think of it. He could see the hurt and bewilderment lingering in her eyes, as if she still didn’t fully realize how she’d gotten here, or why her father had chosen to believe an old widower over his own dochter. Bethel’s first time changing Elam’s diaper didn’t go as badly as she’d feared. Lying on the changing table in his bedroom, the boppli waved his feet in the air and blew bubbles at her, completely winning her heart.

"The Cabin" blog tour

The Cabin FB Banner

About the Book

The Cabin
Book: The Cabin  
Author: Erin Unger  
Genre: Romantic suspense  
Release date: June 14, 2019

Leah Kettridge’s writing career is over before the first book lands on the shelf, when a famous author has claimed she’s stolen his work. If it wasn’t for a story brainstorming luncheon with her sister, he’d have never overheard her conversation about the novel she was writing. Who will she ever trust again if not her most favorite writer? And what about the one fabulous date they had before she knew what a traitor he was? Keenan Brinner has it all. He’s a best-selling author who’s only headed toward more greatness. And he must be the most gorgeous guy Leah’s ever seen. But he’s also a liar and a cheat. When they end up at the same cabin to write, emotions explode. But an unexpected snowstorm traps them deep in the mountains. Is he bent on destroying her in more ways than one? How will love find them amidst all their anger and distrust?

My Review:
First of all, the synopsis about this book really grabbed my attention and I was completely intrigued and once I started reading I did not want to stop!  I really enjoyed this book overall, the story line, the characters, the setting, everything.  Having something like that taken from you, but someone that you had trusted and admired from afar and then more closely has to be devastating.  Leah is rightfully angry with Keenan and then when the two find themselves in such close proximity, I was eager to keep reading to find out what would happen next.  I felt like the story flowed nicely, at a nice pace and the characters were well-developed.  I immediately empathized with Leah and found myself rooting for her from the start.  The emotions are so well written and described that the characters really came to life.  I really enjoyed this book and will be looking to see what the author writes next!

Glittery snow. The perfect cabin in the mountains. And sworn enemies trapped together. How could anything go wrong?

They’re stuck together after one stole the other’s novel. But the famous one has firsts rights to the work. Who’d dare believe he’d be the perpetrator of the crime?

Read an excerpt from The Cabin

Betrayal is such a benign looking word on paper. In real life it could kill a person. Like me. I was dying on the inside as I flipped from one page to the next of the bestselling novel in my hands. And all because of Keenan Brennan—the hottest bestselling author I knew and dated some time ago. Yet some part of me kept praying it wasn’t true as I pressed into the sofa cushion and continued to read. It just couldn’t be. But the book with the startlingly dark cover said it all. “No, no, no.” Hot tears stung my cheeks as I ripped the well-designed cover off the book and then launched it across the living room. It smashed against the refurbished brick wall and landed with its pages bent. Good. It deserved a worse fate than just bent pages. How? When had he stolen my book idea? I face-planted my palm against my forehead. “At the restaurant.” Why didn’t I keep my big fat mouth shut and tell my sister Aeris the storyline in the privacy of my home? Tears stung my eyes. Who’d have guessed my lowdown almost boyfriend would stoop so low. He didn’t need my work. I stared across the room, not focusing on the heap of a good—terrible—book. Well it was on the NYT bestselling list. Not bad for a nobody writer like myself. And since it was my story—not his—then I allowed myself a moment of self-satisfaction. My gaze dropped to the torn book. I had to take another look. Couldn’t it be a coincidence? Maybe the rest of it was different. In a scramble, I grabbed it up and found the page I last read. By chapter forty there was no doubt.
