MY REVIEW OF WE JOURNEY NO MORE

A Time Travel Tale for Sci-fi Lovers!

We Journey No MoreWe Journey No More by Sahara Foley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Roasted Skittou Anyone?

This was a fun read. Though I wasn't surprised by many things, it didn't distract from the book. The way the author wove the tale and the details of an altered world were where the magic really happened.
I liked the passion of the protagonists and how the unexpected taught them about who they were. I don't want to spoil anything, but I think my favorite part about the story is the dedication of the characters - to what they believed to be right. It spoke to my heart!
This was a fun read for me; light enough to enjoy while having enough action, romance, and heartbreak to give it depth. Well done!

MY REVIEW OF A MERSEY KILLING!

BOOK ONE
In the Mersey Mystery Series


A Mersey Killing: When Liverpool Rocked, And The Music Died (Mersey Murder Mysteries Book 1)A Mersey Killing: When Liverpool Rocked, And The Music Died by Brian L. Porter
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

An Intriguing Tale of Passions and Crime!

I really enjoyed the tragic story of Brendan Kane &The Planets and the beautiful Marie. The story was well laid out and believable, especially backed with real historical data. The transitions between the 1960's and the turn of the millennium were well done and enriched the overall story.
I felt the premise of the tale was quite enthralling. Not only did it bring an age past back to life, commemorating incredible artists of the time, but it was an excellent read. The continuous twists and turns of the plot were both fascinating and delightful. I certainly recommend it!
If you love crime mysteries and suspense then this is a "must read!"

MY REVIEW OF BOOK ONE in THE GEMSTONE CHRONICLES

The Carnelian

The Gemstone Chronicles Book One: The CarnelianThe Gemstone Chronicles Book One: The Carnelian by William L. Stuart
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Cute Adventure for the family!

I liked how the story was personalized for the author's grandchildren. It made it more endearing. What a fun story for grandparents to share with their grandchildren.
I enjoyed the magical world and the gemstone trivia. The inclusion of gemstones gave a new freshness to the story. It was interesting and witty.
I look forward to finding out the rest of the tale.

ONLY 99 CENTS - FLAWED PERFECTION: A Collection of Winter Wishes

BOOK REVIEWS
FOR OUR NEW RELEASE!


4.0 out of 5 starsA vindication of hope in the form of romantic love
ByKenna McKinnonon November 20, 2016
An interesting anthology of romance novellas just perfect for curling up with a cup of hot chocolate in
front of a fireplace, and losing oneself in a universe where good things happen at the end to flawed women.
There are six stories, and my favorite was saved till the last,
"The Chase" by Marnie Cate, which ends with a romantic winter evening and snow falling on a bench,
my favorite quote from Shakespeare, and emotional healing with love.

As someone who was brought up with innuendos in romance rather than graphic detail, some of the
descriptions of sex seemed superfluous to me in a couple of the stories, which detracted rather than added
to romance for this reader. This could be a selling feature for some readers, though,
and I understand that romance novels are a distraction from the mundane, a "feel good" experience
for those seeking escapism, and in this case, a vindication of hope in the form of romantic love.
These tales sprang from a desire on the part of the authors to celebrate a woman's strength
in the face of adversity or error, and the healing properties of love.
I think the placement of the stories in "Flawed Perfection" was well thought out.

5.0 out of 5 starsJust in time for the holidays
ByHaley's Commentson November 22, 2016
I like novellas - good stories that don't take too much time to get through. I liked the assortment and topics. 
This makes a fantastic holiday gift.


When falling in love means exposing flaws and secrets, everything gets more complicated... unless you are a strong, confident woman. 
Six authors come together to share heartwarming novellas about how, when you fall in love, this crazy, mixed-up, imperfect life might just be perfect after all.

Jude Ouvrard - Keep me warm
A life isn’t a life anymore when everyone you loved is gone. Adele’s strength is keeping her away from hell... But what happens when she starts feeling again?
Simone Beaudelaire - Mr. Wrong
At 39 years old, Aubree is far less desperate to find ‘the one’ than her family would like. When they try to set her up with the town’s new tow truck driver, will she stick to her independence? Or will this tattooed Mr. Wrong turn out to be more right than she would have guessed?
J.M. Northup - Unwrapped gifts
Fearing time is running out, Attorney Tally Abram seeks the aid of her gay best friends in fathering her child, but ends up with so much more! Sometimes the most treasured gifts are the ones that cannot be wrapped.
Savannah Morgan – Betrayed Again:
A Sapphire Springs Christmas Story

Nicoleta Davis is starting a new life in Sapphire Springs. Will a chance meeting with someone connected to her past bring the happiness she seeks, or will she be Betrayed Again?
Taylor Dawn – Ticket to Paradise
Can two jilted hearts find happiness in the tropics? Charlotte decided to go on her honeymoon alone, even though her fiancé left her at the altar. A chance meeting with a sexy stranger may be just what she needs to find her ticket to paradise.
Marnie Cate - The Chase
They say revenge is a dish best served cold, and Caitlyn’s cheating husband deserves the coldest revenge imaginable. Suddenly Caitlyn must choose. Which is more important: the vengeance she deserves or the chance to heal her heart?
