The Lassoed Bride (A Novella): A Western Romantic Comedy (The Texas Two-Step Series Book 2) from Kathy Carmichael​

The Texas Two-Step romantic comedy series is a reader favorite. All of the stories in the series are sweet, charming and emotional contemporary romance. Each story in the series stands alone, but all Texas Two-Step novels and novellas feature love stories about members of the Nelson, Murphy or Palmer families — and sometimes, more than one!

Available at....
Nook UK: 

A Novella. Six years ago, Barbara Palmer fell head-over-heels for cocky cowboy Ben O'Shea. He was devastatingly appealing, and he knew it. He had her heart—until the day he stood her up and disappeared. Now he’s back, determined to take up again where they left off—even though she's about to marry another man.

Despite all the growing up Ben has done in the past six years, including the highly successful dude ranch he's built that's made him a millionaire—he's never forgotten Barb and he wants her back.

But her wedding grows closer every day. He has to win back her love and her trust, before she's lost to him forever.

Chasing Charlie, Texas Two-Step Series Book 1

"Fun and heartwarming story for children" says Vanessa Kings​ about Eclair Goes Geocaching by Michelle Weidenbenner​.

Award-winner and Amazon bestselling author Michelle Weidenbenner brings us “Éclair Goes Geocaching”, with a wonderful new adventure for Éclair.

I was fortunate enough to do an advance reading of this book, which comes out on November 30th, and it is just as entertaining and thoughtful as the previous two books in the series.

In it, Éclair discovers about Geocaching, and sets off with her grandma to find hidden treasures. Along the way, she learns a valuable lesson and even makes a new friend.

A really fun and heartwarming story for children. If you haven’t read any of Éclair stories with your child, I highly recommend the whole series (3 books so far) and more to come soon.

'Another amazing book in the #Booker Series' Cali Book Reviews on BRAND NEW Booker: Dead Heat by John W. Mefford | Author​

"Another amazing book in the Booker Series and I am so glad I chose to read it.

The characters in this book are super real, and pretty easy to feel what they’re going through.

I’m not sure if I would have been able to help the Dallas P.D. if they would have treated me like they treated Booker!

I never knew what was going to happen next, and I was on the edge of my seat through out the whole book, which I absolutely LOVED.

This book IS a part of a series, but it CAN be read as a stand alone book. I would recommend it!"

Read more on the #book and the Booker series here...

A new breed of killer has hit Dallas. The victims? They bleed blue. And the brotherhood is calling in the cavalry: one Booker T. Adams, PI.

Excommunicated from the Dallas Police Department for refusing to overlook conduct unbefitting an officer, Booker has every reason to slam the door shut when the chief pleads for his assistance. But Booker can’t turn his back on the community he’s always felt drawn to protect, even if it means getting in bed with someone who tried to ruin his life.

As pandemonium floods the city from the inside out, Booker chases an invisible plague. He can’t stop what he can’t see. And then the unthinkable happens. Another killing…and this one guts him.

Driven by an eternal camaraderie he’d once shared with his long-time partner, Booker shifts into overdrive to end this sinister game, some sort of sick vigilante justice.

A vengeful fury of his own takes hold. And the damned can hear him coming.

NEW Murder & romance in 1920's Manhattan in Goodbye Tootsie by Delynn Royer 'The setting is awesome–just turn on some jazz and you’ll be transported back to the Roaring Twenties.' reviews Newbery and Beyond ........

"Regular readers of this blog will know that I am a huge fan of both mysteries and historical fiction, so Goodbye Tootsie sounded like the perfect book for me. Set in the opulent 1920s, tabloid reporter Trixie and her romantic interest, police detective Sean Costigan, both set their sights on unraveling the mysterious death of a young heiress. As they continue their investigations, the pair uncovers family secrets and dark pasts that may relate to the heiress’s death.

I really enjoyed reading this book. The setting is awesome–just turn on some jazz and you’ll be transported back to the Roaring Twenties. Trixie was very enjoyable as a character, and I found myself wanting to know more about her. (I found out later that this is the second book in the series, and you can in fact learn more about Trixie’s background in the first book–details below!) I didn’t enjoy Sean’s character as much, though, since he often seemed to belittle Trixie’s chosen career and even her family background. Still, I enjoyed the two as a couple; just be forewarned about a couple of mildly explicit romance/sex scenes, if you’re not into that sort of thing.

The mystery itself is also interesting and enjoyable. It’s full of juicy secrets and lots of suspects–including one suspect whom Trixie is closer to than Sean expected. But all of that pales in comparison (at least for me) to the setting. Late nights filled with dancing and drinking, grand mansions, gorgeous dresses and jewelry… This book lets you slip into another time and immerse yourself in that world."

Rating: Pretty Darn Good

Our Beck Valley Books Review on Those Children Are Ours by David Burnett, Author 'A wonderfully written story, full of impact and emotion, that stays with you long after you have finished reading it'.......

"This is the third book I have read by this author and I have never been disappointed, the way he writes the characters seem to connect with you instantly and you become engrossed in the storyline. Those Children Are Ours was no different and I was faced with a number of emotions throughout this story and a twist that truly had me gasping for breath, it was that intense and completely made this such an awesome read.

Jennie, I admit, had me feeling angry, she was a wife and a mother of two but completely lost her way in life, travelling down a dark path of alcohol and affairs, eventually leaving her family to fend for themselves for 12 years. Unbeknowst to everyone, even herself, she had bipolar which had gone untreated and years went by until she connects with a man known as 'the preacher' who turns her towards the right path. Now on her own, receiving treatment, teaching and regularly going to church, she decides she wants to see her children, Christa and Alexis again. This is where my emotions fought against themselves, yes I sympathised with her situation and perhaps even started to warm towards her, especially when you learn about her childhood, yet I still couldn't get past the fact that she had selfishly abandoned her children and suddenly decides, with the encouragement of her counsellor, to apply to see them again just because she wants to without considering what affect this would have on those involved.

The impact of this decision is extremely hard on everyone, obviously more so for both teenagers Christa and Alexis, and the implications surrounding this cause no end of chaos and a shocking turn of events that will have you unable to put the book down. All the characters are extremely believeable, you will love some and you will hate some (believe me!) and the author had the teenagers feelings and actions down to a 'T'. This was such a well written book that you cannot fail to feel the characters

An wonderfully written story, full of impact and emotion, that stays with you long after you have finished reading it."

Hollow Blood (Sleepy Hollow Horrors, Book 1): The Hunt For the Foul Murderer of Ichabod Crane by Austin Dragon 'I will NEVER again walk past that cemetery at night!!' reviews Miki's Hope​.....

"This book has more then a couple of twists and turns and you won't believe the ending! The Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow--I grew up not far from that town and it truly is a pretty little town surrounded by other towns even to this day with the Hudson River running proudly besides them. Do I believe the Legend--uh not really and I walked past that cemetery many times when I was young--but after reading this---well----

Without giving anything else away I will tell you I want to read the second in this series--and I will NEVER again walk past that cemetery at night again!!"

Hollow Blood! Book One of the debut Sleepy Hollow Horrors by Austin Dragon

Ichabod Crane is dead! Everyone knows it. The Horseman took him—like so many others—one dark night in 1790. All that remained of the town's amiable schoolmaster was his hat on the side of the road, with a shattered pumpkin beside it. But soon the fearful townspeople of Sleepy Hollow realized that the terrifying Horseman, that haunted their region for ages, had also disappeared, inexplicably, after that night. They were free!

That was 10 years ago. And a lone stranger has come to their quiet town.

He is friendly enough, well-mannered, educated, but there is a secret about this man—he is not what he seems. Suspicions grow. The whispers of gossip begin. All of Sleepy Hollow is soon turned upside-down when they learn the truth.

It is only the beginning, as they find themselves in the path of his black vengeance, his hunt for the foul murderer of Ichabod Crane. This stranger threatens not only their lives by his presence, but their very souls by bringing about the return of the hellish Headless Horseman!

For Sleepy Hollow, will death be upon them all?

Hollow Blood and The Devil’s Patch are both books of the two-part Sleepy Hollow Horrors.
