Murder on the Moor by Julianna Deering with a giveaway

This was fantastic as always. I love Drew and Madeline. I wish Nick might have been in a little more but at least he was in a little. I loved the other character of Beaky who hires Drew. He was fun. I hope there will be many more to this series. I received a copy of this book from Celebratelit and the author for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

Book: Murder on the MOOR, A Drew Farthering Mystery
Author: Julianna Deering
Genre: Historical Mystery
Release Date: February 2017
At the urgent request of an old school friend, Drew and Madeline Farthering come to Bloodworth Park Lodge in the midst of the Yorkshire moors, a place as moody and mysterious as a Brontë hero. There have been several worrisome incidents around those lonesome rolling hills–property desecrated, fires started, sheep and cattle scattered. Worst of all, the vicar has been found dead on the steps of the church, a crime for which Drew can discern no motive at all.
 
Few in the town of Bunting’s Nest seem like suspects, and Drew can’t keep his suspicions from falling on his friend’s new bride. Do her affections lie more with her husband’s money and estate, while her romantic interests stray to their fiery Welsh gamekeeper? As the danger grows ever closer, it’s up to Drew to look past his own prejudices, determine what’s really going on, and find the killer before it’s too late.

Life After E.L.E. by J. C. Morrows with a giveaway

I really enjoyed this dystopian book. I could not put this down. I needed to know what happened to make the world so cold and to bring everyone to the caves to live. Life seems ok but there is something underneath that is ominous. It is going to be hard to wait for the next book in this series. I received an ebook copy of this book from Celebratelit for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

Book: Life After E.L.E.
Author: JC Marrows
Genre: Young Adult Post-Apocalyptic/Dystopian
Release Date: November 29, 2016
Extinction Level Event: An event where all species on the planet can become extinct.

If you manage to survive . . . What then?

When a rogue moon was discovered on a collision course with the Earth, we thought we had a solid plan.

To survive. . . to rebuild. . . to go on.

30 Years later… those who managed to survive, emerged from the caves to find a frozen world.

A world where rule number one in the compound is to be inside the gates before sunset. . . or die.

Eve watched the gates close – with her father on the outside – so that should be the easiest thing in the world for her to remember.

But life is not always simple.

Life does not always go as planned.

Now Eve is in a race against time, discovery, and danger around every corner – to find a truth that has been hidden. . . for years.

A truth Eve’s father died to protect her from.

Guest Post from JC Marrows
Life After E.L.E. is one of those stories that I never saw coming. A lot of people might even say it was never meant to be. . .
But GOD had other plans!
It was one of those spur-of-the-moment ideas… the kind that usually doesn’t amount to much for me. Over the last twenty years I have started hundreds – yes, you read that right – of stories on the spur-of-the-moment. Until 2011, none of them amounted to anything more than a few chapters. In 2013, I was working on an entirely different series – the first I’d had any measure of true success with – when my mother challenged me to participate in NaNoWriMo [National Novel Writing Month – where you write 50,000 words in 30 days].
I sat down on November 1st with absolutely nothing on the page and only a vague idea of what I wanted to write about. And, to be perfectly honest, I didn’t expect much. I did not expect to reach the goal and I certainly never expected that the book would be published three years later (albeit after quite a bit of editing and rewriting)
What’s more is that there is more to this story.
Last November, one of the stops on Marissa Meyer’s Heartless tour was Nashville, and of course my daughter and I had to go see her… and buy her new book! While there, I gave Marissa an early copy of Life After E.L.E. – after thanking her for being such an inspiration to me.
Not only did she seem genuinely excited – she made a point to have me autograph it! (cue absolute and utter shock – followed by inner Happy Dancing)!
Why so excited you ask? Well… there are some authors who think you’re not a “real” author when you write your story during NaNoWriMo and knowing Marissa’s story was about the only thing that kept me going that year. You can’t get much more REAL than New York Times Bestseller – which Marissa hit with her very first book. She was a tremendous inspiration to me then – and continues to be now. I am truly blessed to have met her!
And I count myself truly blessed that the right people enjoy the story enough that it has been published. I look forward to sharing part two with readers at the end of this year. And then I have another story to get out there!

My Heart Belongs in Fort Bliss, Texas by Erica Vetsch

This was a wonderful western romance. Priscilla and Elliot were made for each other. It just takes them a little time to figure this out. Between the army and their niece and nephew they have more on their mind then a romance. I love how the characters try to work with each other even though they both want two different things. Priscilla wants to take the twins back to the east coast since she hates the army and Elliot wants to raise the children where they are. Well written and enjoyable. I received this book from Barbour books for a fair and honest opinion that I gave freely.

Journey now to Fort Bliss in West Texas of 1874, where…A Battle Is About to be Waged Between Two Hearts. Fashion artist Priscilla Hutchens has a grudge against the army that has ruined her family and taken the people she holds most dear. When her twin niece and nephew are left orphaned at Fort Bliss, Texas, she swoops down on Fort Bliss to gain custody of them immediately. There is just one thing standing in the way–Post surgeon Major Elliot Ryder, who is also the twins uncle, also claims the children and thinks he knows what is best for them. Priscilla and Elliot will cross swords, but each will have to lay down arms if they are to find a lasting peace on which to form the family both are longing for. Who will win the battle? Or will a truce be called for the sake of love and family?

The Confessions of Young Nero by Margaret George

This was a very detailed story about the first years of Emporer Nero. Margaret George gives Nero a personality. You love him or hate him at different times in his life. She tells a tale of him that is different from what we are used to hearing. I really enjoyed this story. I laughed and cried . I received this ebook from Netgalley and Berkeley for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

PLOT SYNOPSIS

THE CONFESSIONS OF YOUNG NERO takes readers through the early life of Rome’s infamous Nero. Through the machinations of his mother, Agrippina the Younger, Nero became emperor at the age of sixteen, the last of the Julio-Claudian dynasty. But the road was a frightening one. The young boy, an intelligent, sensitive and watchful child, had a series of psychological shocks from an early age. His cruel uncle Caligula and his scheming cousin Messalina threatened his life, and his domineering and ambitious mother Agrippina married and poisoned two men en route to securing the throne for her son. Agrippina viewed Nero’s power as an extension of her own will. But once on the throne—like the teenage boy he was—Nero did not want to take orders from his mother. Soon the world was not big enough for the two of them. Thereafter he was remembered as a hedonist and tyrant who “fiddled” while his people burned. But the truth behind the caricature, revealed here, shows Nero to be instead a product of his mother’s relentless ambition, and the incest, violence, luxury, and intrigue that have gripped Rome’s seat of power for generations.

Starlight Bridge by Debbie Mason with a giveaway

I loved this romantic story. I love the Widows club and how they want to get everyone matched. I think this would be an interesting town to live in but I like my anonymous life in a bigger city. Ava and Griffin needed to learn how to talk about their problems. I love the Gallagher family (alive and dead). I received this book from Grand Central Publishing for a fair and honest opinion that I have given of my own free will.  I give it a five out of five.

Hidden in Graystone Manor is a book containing all the dark secrets of Harmony Harbor, and Ava DiRossi is determined to find it. No one—especially not her ex-husband, Griffin Gallagher—can ever discover what really tore her life apart all those years ago.

And he still has no idea Ava never stopped loving him…

 

Ava is no longer the vibrant, happy woman Griffin had once loved and married, and he would do anything to bring back the sparkle to her brilliant green eyes. But what’s never changed are the sexy sparks of attraction between Ava and Griffin, and he won’t give her up again without a fight. He knows there’s the real possibility of a future together…if the truth doesn’t burn the bridge between them forever.

Devil in False Colors by Jack Winnick

This was a very intense story. I sometimes had some trouble following the story since I really don’t know a lot about the Muslim faith or about the different middle eastern countries. I loved the characters that were featured. I did not want to put the book down during the most intense portions. This kept me on my toes. I really liked Uri and Lara. This did teach me a little about some of the differences in the Muslim culture. I received a copy of this book from Smith publicity for a fair and honest opinion which I gave of my own free will.


Popular Fiction

A vicious attack on a Jewish school in California spawns an international chase for the criminals. FBI agent Lara Edmond teams up again with Mossad assassin Uri Levin as the scope of the terror widens.

Donna’s Detour by Jo Huddleston

I really enjoyed this book. I loved Donna and how she stopped in a small town to earn money until she can get back on her feet. Then Tommy walks into the restaurant where she is working. He was the boy she had a huge crush on when she was much younger. Just seeing him makes her remember how she felt. I loved the romance. This really kept all of my attention. I received an ebook copy of this book from bookfun.org for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.


When Donna Turner and two girlfriends leave Alabama in 1956 and head to California on Route 66, Donna runs out of money. Her girlfriends continue the journey to Los Angeles, leaving Donna in Needles, California where a dream-come-true adventure is about to happen.

She worshipped the ground he walked on when she was fifteen, and now he shows up at the diner where she works. Will he remember her or does he still think of her as her brother’s skinny kid sister? Will Donna be confident enough in herself to accept her dream?
