NEW RELEASE - The Immigrant Wife: Her Spiritual Journey by Madhu B. Wangu'a wonderful life story told so beautifully by Madhu, she has a wonderful way with words, sharing a story that is so powerful when one believes in themselves and listens to their body for their journey through life.' reviews Mammanatty
As a girl on the brink of womanhood in 1960s India, Shanti Bamzai has big dreams. Rather than enter into an arranged marriage like her sister, Shanti embarks on a journey into the unknown, leaving her family home behind for an education and a chance to chart her own destiny.
While India experiences an upheaval of cultural and societal changes as old-world traditions collide with the modern global era, Shanti navigates college, a marriage of her own choosing, and motherhood, fighting a constant battle between the pressures of traditional expectations and her own burning desire to be an artist and an independent woman.
A move to America presents exciting new opportunities, but Shanti is disappointed to find herself still hemmed in by the restrictions of her Indian upbringing. As her children become adults and her marriage becomes a shell of what it once was, Shanti must find the courage to step out of her husband’s shadow and into the life she’s always dreamed of.

Our Beck Valley Books Review - After the Kill by Cary Allen Stone (A Jake Roberts Novel) 'hard hitting and fast paced thriller with emotive human touches enthralls the reader'......
"Welcome to the chaotic world of Jake Roberts who attracts trouble like a lamp does a moth. After deciding to try and take a slower lifestyle than he is used to, he is quickly caught up in a terrorist attack on an airport and recruited to help. Whilst he is helping with the enquiries, his own life and his loved one is under threat from an unknown source.
Cary Allen Stone is one to watch out for. He has an unique writing style and portrayal of his characters traits as well as their physiological traits is amazing, along with descriptive scenes you can envisage them in your minds eye.
Hard hitting and fast paced thriller with emotive human touches enthralls the reader and takes them on a journey through the troubled mind of a serial killer. Praise for this author and his work, which any reader would not be disappointed in. Looking forward to the authors next work."

NEW ROMANCE RELEASE Laguna Sights by Kaira Rouda Books (Laguna Beach Book 4)
'I’ve read all the books so far and I love them. They are a great quick read to relax and unwind. I get lost in the books and lose all track of time when reading them. I can’t wait for more in the series.' reviews A Library of Reviews
Once you're a star, can you trust other people’s intentions?
Scott Cassidy has lived a blessed life. Growing up in Laguna Beach with a loving family, he was discovered in high school when he appeared on the popular reality TV show, Laguna Nights. Now cast as a doctor on the number one soap opera, his star keeps rising. Finally free from his long-term girlfriend, Scott isn’t looking for love, but when a popular dating app matches him with Jamie Kane, he can’t deny the sparks. But is she really everything she seems?
Jamie Kane isn’t lucky in love or life. Her childhood was tumultuous with a single mom who moved to Hollywood for fame but ended up waiting tables in Malibu. Certainly not one of the spoiled kids she went to high school and college with, Jamie has worked hard to achieve her dreams of being an actress, even as she begins to realize it’s not her calling. Jamie believes Scott may be the answer to everything unless a past mistake makes him doubt their future together.
Is the price of fame the chance at true love?
***Laguna Sights can be read and enjoyed as a stand alone novel. And if you enjoy Scott and Jamie's love story, please consider reading the rest of the Laguna Beach series.

Thirty-something, Cecelia Laramie, strives for excellence like the other housewives in her quiet suburban neighborhood. Cece’s a bit eccentric with her elaborate doll collection and bouts of OCD, so when she finds out her well-to-do husband is misbehaving, she decides to nip it in the bud—with a baseball bat.
Getting revenge on her husband for his indiscretions becomes Cece’s newest obsession, but when another jilted housewife joins her cause, things go awry. Cece’s cutthroat accomplice pushes her to commit crimes throughout Manhattan, sabotaging her husband’s real estate business. When her counterpart introduces deadly weapons into the mix, Cece knows she's in over her head.
Cece’s a bundle of nerves; she’s a housewife, not a terrorist. Her new partner is nothing but trouble, but if the mysterious woman can help her reclaim her old life, Cece’s in. She just hopes their crazy antics don't land her a spot in prison first.

Now a physician on the brink of a promising career, she reluctantly returns home when her father is injured in a farming accident. Daisy expects the small-town girls who hurt her in the past to take cheap shots again--but she's completely unprepared for a run-in with tall, dark, and wickedly sexy Luke Braden, the only man who has ever stood up for her--and the man she's never forgotten.
