Trouble in Paradise is the third book in an excellent series by Deborah Brown - Paradise Series, it's all kicking off in the Keys, Madison and buddies are knee deep in trouble and have iou's to the big hitters in the area. How much trouble one lady can land herself in as well as trying to help her friends is unbelievable. The whole team has to give everything if they are all to survive.

This novel is full of excitement, sexual tension and romances and superbly backed up with humorous quips. The characters have grown into a very moulded group and their traits shine through.

Another very easy but enthralling read and a lot more going on, odd jobs for the local don, problems of trying to evict troublesome residents and also solve the mystery of a man floating in the local waters. 

The women will love the hunks with their dark sides and overprotective nature, with the female characters trying to prove they can live and survive without them, which adds a touch of feminism to the story. The fast cars, the gun tottering and dodgy characters embellished in a warm weather climate makes a rip roaring read.

What a book!! This will bring out your deepest thoughts, stirring them up and making your heart burst. It will open your eyes to the dark world that many people suffer from whether it be alcohol / drug abuse, child abuse, mental illness and more. On top of which comes the most cutest, loveable little girl, Quinn and her loving father Brett, who will melt your heart.

There's a predator on the loose with one mission on his mind - to rid the local area of pedophiles, to keep the children in the area safe so they don't have to undergo the same torturous childhood that he had gone through. How does he do this and what body parts does he hide in the geocaching sites? You will have to read the book but be prepared for some 'coarse' words here and there, bringing out the true flavour of the mystery.

Officer Brett Reed, Quinn's father, along with his partner Clay try to track down the predator. Yet Brett has worse problems to deal with much closer to home. His addict of a wife sinks lower into despair whilst having custody of their only daughter Quinn. His daughter is found in the street on her own and is taken into protective care. You would think it would be a straight forward handing over to the father but no, it turns out to be the worst thing that could have happened.

Cache a Predator by Michelle Weidenbenner shows how years of child cruelty can affect those in later life and how the suffering is passed on to their loved ones. Personally it made me really think about how unfair the legal system is, and in this case how ludicrous it is when dealing with the custody of children towards fathers, it also brings to light frightening potential flaws in trusted protective services that will make may your skin crawl.

Get ready for the story twists, unexpected moments, the holding of breath and the emotional grab of this brilliant thriller, you won't want to put this one down !!

This book would also be a perfect early Christmas gift for any reader on your shopping list. Excellent for Secret Santa gift reviews DeDa Studio 

Tending her Heart by Kathleen Shoop

A story of a strong woman all alone searching for what is right. Right in all areas of her life. Wonderful feel good story for the holidays.

The Christmas Miracle by Marcy Waldenville
The Christmas Miracle is a short story set in the 1920's about the importance of staying true to yourself and your beliefs. How we each can change and make a difference. Who was Brennan? Was he evil or good? Very good short story focusing on the Christmas holiday.

Holiday Wish by J.D. Wylde
Holiday Wish is a feel good holiday short story. A perfect story about Rules are Made to be Broken.

All three of these short stories were fun reads. They each expressed the spirit of the holiday season. I highly recommend Holiday Bliss as a perfect book to read while sitting by the Christmas tree on a chilly winter night.

This book would also be a perfect early Christmas gift for any reader on your shopping list. Excellent for Secret Santa gift reviews DeDa Studio

Our Beck Valley Books Review of Welcome to the World! Book and Coloring Book by Kanta Bosniak, Author 'Kanta's soft and gentle tone with words are used carefully to reflect their true meaning' ......

Our Book Review on Welcome to the World Book
"I always thoroughly look forward to reading Kanta Bosniak's insightful words in her books. They speak to the heart and mind so clearly that I find that I could read them over and over again. You simply feel the understanding and positivity jump off the pages as you read them.

Talk about melting your heart, I wish I had this book through both of my pregnancies and while they were both small enough to plant seeds of thought. The idea of passing on positive thoughts and teaching to your unborn child fills your heart with warmth and happiness.

Kanta's soft and gentle tone with words are used carefully to reflect their true meaning to guide a child's spiritual journey into happiness to be carried on into adulthood. A lesson many adults have failed to do. The words are passed on to your child to nourish deeply and their inner thoughts may have a chance against life's obstacles.

I really like how the author uses the book to explain to the young about inside thoughts and those that we speak and how these can have an effect on people. I love the use of the happy buttons, a tool that people of all ages can do. There is also a good simple insight at a young age as to why others are sad.

A very easy and enjoyable read as a parent, parent to be or on your own. Be prepared to smile your way through this book."

Our Book Review on Welcome to the World Book Coloring Book
"The coloring book forms a reminder to children and adults alike that they are loved and how happiness can surround them,

Simple words, quotes and drawings from Kanta's free flowing hand are carefully used to teach children, in a simple way, about their own feelings and that of others and also how they can find inner happiness.

As an adult, flicking through the pages made me smile at the trigger messages given out and I am looking forward to starting to coloring them in."

Cache a Predator by M Weidenbenner! Review and Giveaway!

From the first page to the last, I was immersed in the mystery and frightening saga of this book.  A maniacal self-proclaimed protector of children is Stalking and killing pedophiles. Officer Reed has his own personal problems to deal with while trying to get custody of his daughter. I have so many ways to go with telling you about this fantastic read. Shall I talk about the love of a father for a child? Or maybe a vigilante’s crazed plan of action to protect children from abuse. Then there is Geocaching… something I have heard about, but not like this… Well, I better not start, because I won’t stop. You should read this one, it is riveting.

Weidenbenner has done a superb job with all the characters. Intriguing and mind-boggling persons that you can not help to be drawn to.

BRAND NEW RELEASE Hilltop Sunset by Joyce T Strand "What a refreshing and engaging style of writing which adds pace and excitement to the mystery." reviews The Book Review...

"When I first opened Hilltop Sunset the first thing I noticed was the number of chapters and I remember thinking – this had better be good. I’m glad to say that I wasn’t disappointed.

Brynn is recently divorced. Whilst celebrating her new status she learns that her attacker is back in town and posing a new threat. This doesn’t stop her living her life and embarking on a new and exciting relationship with Todd, who specialises in helping the companies tighten their anti-fraud procedures.

The situation gets interesting when Brynn finds realises she is being stalked and is even more surprised when she discovers the person’s identity. As new characters are introduced the pace picks up climaxing with a murder and events which force Brynn to re-consider her life decisions.

I thoroughly enjoyed the way the plot was developed and kept me guessing just when I thought I’d figured it all out. I thought Brynn had a great sixth sense and it’s a shame she didn’t pay much attention to it. There’s probably a lesson in there for every reader!

What a refreshing and engaging style of writing which adds pace and excitement to the mystery."
