NEW #romance Cape Cod Promises by Bella Andre & Melissa Foster 'adored' by Cali Book Reviews ....
"I absolutely adored Cape Cod Kisses, so I knew with out a doubt that I would enjoy Cape Cod Promises, and I was NOT wrong! Cape Cod Promises is the story of Trent and Reese, who were once married, but lost their way early in the marriage.
We didn’t have to watch Reese and Trent fall in love, because it was obvious from the beginning that they never fell out of love. We got to witness them staying in love and staying together.
I love the characters, I love the story. I have always wanted to go to Cape Cod, and now I want to go even more. I will drag my husband there one of these days!!"

Cape Cod Promises is the second book from the Love on Rockwell Island Contemporary Romance Series by New York Times & USA bestselling authors Bella Andre & Melissa Foster.
Fall in love on Rockwell Island…Sink your toes into the sandy beaches at the heart of Cape Cod Bay, where family comes first, good friends are around every corner, and true love is waiting beneath the stars.
Trent Rockwell has it all—a thriving legal practice, coownership of the Rockwell Resort, and a big, loving family. And yet his failed marriage to Reese Nicholson has haunted him for ten long years. Now that he has moved back to Cape Cod Bay to help run his family’s resort, he is surrounded by memories of Reese…and he can’t stop longing for the woman he’d always believed was his one true love…
At nineteen, artist Reese Nicholson was swept off her feet by the handsome, charming, and incredibly sensual Trent Rockwell. After a whirlwind courtship, they married and moved to New York City, where they hoped all of their personal and professional dreams would come true. But six months later, Reese returned to Rockwell Island brokenhearted and disillusioned.
For a decade, Trent and Reese carefully kept their distance. But all it takes is one accidental late-night encounter to immediately stir the desires they have both tried to bury deep. Powerless to resist the heat between them, every passionate kiss, loving caress, and heartfelt apology draws them closer together. So close that they can’t help but wonder if the promises they once made to love each other forever are still true…
Our Book Review on Renewal "Anytime" 10 Day Detox by Lisa Consiglio Ryan Whole Health Designs
"This was such a thoroughly planned out book by the author, it guides you through the detox programme very easily, leaving you with the confidence to actually start it on your own. She has such a friendly approach in the book, it's as if she is right there beside you willing you on. She does highly encourage you to first fully read the book BEFORE starting the detox, so you can grasp all the information for the best possible outcome, I took advantage of this whilst on my holiday to do just that and I was ready to begin when I returned.
I found Renewal Anytime very straightforward to follow, full of quick recipes that genuinely sound tasty and enjoyable, answers to common questions, along with plenty of tips and advice. The daily menu's are already planned out for you, breakfast, mid-morning snack, lunch, mid-afternoon snack and dinner, Don't be concerned about not liking a particular recipe as the author has also included extra recipes in case you want to substitute. Lisa has literally thought of everything you could possibly need to ensure your detox goes as smoothly as possible, even when you finish your detox and may think to yourself 'now what?' Lisa has included recipes so you can continue the progress you have made.
It's not all about food of course and Lisa advices you on other beneficial ways to help the detox work better, such as daily body brushing, stretching, exercising, drinks.
One tip, if your anything like me, I started listing all the ingredients I would need to begin, but there is no need as Lisa has already prepared the shopping list for you. Some books I have had in the past have lots of ingredients I have never heard of. not to detox but to simply eat healthy, so it was quite a pleasant surprise to see all the familiar items on the shopping list.
On our return from holiday both hubbie and I started the detox and we are currently on day 4. We've found the recipes easy to make, tasty and we're not feeling hungry in between meals and snacks, so let the re-balance begin! Watch out for my follow up post xx"

ONLY £0.99 for Limited Time to UK readers!! Wonderfully Dysfunctional: It Must be Genetic Volume 1 by Buffi Neal Proud to be Wonderfully Dysfunctional
Wonderfully Dysfunctional hit the top #50 of ALL kindle books this past year, selling over 10 thousand copies. Amazon rating is 4.5 out of 5 stars with 223 reviews!
The true story of... A woman who laughs at funerals. A gypsy mother who refuses to wear a bra and a father who refuses to leave his first wife. A brother who sleeps under the coffee table and a sister who was kidnapped. A cheating minister, a missing uncle and a feisty, red-headed grandmother who was longing to leave it all.
Buffi always knew her family was unusual, but she was lucky enough to escape that gene. Or was she? Joined by her siblings at the bedside of their dying grandmother, Buffi begins on a journey of self discovery as they recall stories of their youth including juicy family secrets, inappropriate practical jokes, abuse and betrayal. She is on a quest to find Normal but finds herself instead.
It Must be Genetic is about an American family of no particular importance, descendants of the once wealthy and revered Perry clan, but stripped of their family wealth during the Great Depression. It’s full of quirky characters like grandmother Mopsie; a sexy divorced mother of two in the 1950’s who would turn the heads of her conservative neighbors when hosting the best poker parties in town, but who can now be found sleeping her days away in the bed of a nursing home. The story climaxes when Mopsie accidentally reveals a secret that sends her family frantically searching through old documents to find the son she gave up for adoption half a century ago.
It Must be Genetic is about acceptance, forgiveness and the great capacity to love. The story is written from the perspective of a third generation divorced mother, Buffi, who realizes that the very traits that make her family dysfunctional may be the same traits that make it so wonderful. At 64,000 words, it's paced for a quick-and-easy read.

Return to Me by Carolyn Menke, Author 'is a great sweet story' reviews A Soccer Mom's Book Blog....
"World War II is my favorite era of all times. It is nearly impossible for me to pass up reading anything from that time frame.
Return to Me is a different style of writing than what I am use to. It almost seemed like I was reading James’s journal. The two main characters took turns telling their points of views of the happenings of their lives. I loved this style. It was wonderful to hear how Sadie perceived a certain series of events or what had happen while James was gone to war and then hear James perspective on the same set of events and what he was experiencing in war. There were times throughout the book that I felt sorry for them both, but through it all I kept cheering for them to find their happy ending.
I struggled with Sadie’s relationship with her fiancé. The same fiancé that was a drunk, that he took advantage of Sadie’s connections with the Governor, and the same fiancé that kept pushing Sadie into situations that she was not comfortable with. While I understood that times were different, women were expected to act a certain way, I was thrilled with how Sadie repeatedly stood up to him. She was nice, tactful, but persistent on what she wanted in life and what she was willing to give up.
Return to Me is a great sweet story. The setting, the storyline, and the characters are exactly what I was hoping for when I picked up the book. I recommend checking it out."

Eighteen-year-old Sadie Stark, raised by the governor of Pennsylvania, has the world on a string. She doesn’t need the mother who left her any more than she needs the fiance who promises to change. What she needs is to finish college, and keep her wits about her.
When war-bound James Pasko returns her stolen clutch, and shows her what’s missing in her life, she gains the courage to search for the truth about her past.
What Sadie uncovers rattles her to the core. But James’ steadfast love gives her hope for the future—for the first time—even as the war tears them apart.
When James disappears over enemy lines and Sadie makes a startling discovery, she must decide to follow in the footsteps of the mother who gave her away, or face a life of hardship like she’s never known.
When Dreams Touch by Rosemary Hanrahan Edwards 'it took us through many years of trials and tribulations that happened in Haiti, as well" reviews Cali Book Reviews .......
** All proceeds from sales of When Dreams Touch go to health and education programs in Haiti. **
"I absolutely did not want to put this book down. Honestly, I wasn’t sure whether I would like it or not, but let me tell you, once I got a couple chapters into it, it was amazing! I love that we were able to read from all the women’s points of view. The idea that these women of different origin and background share a common dream and remain hopeful despite their personal tragedies puts a positive feeling throughout the story. The situations mentioned, made this story very real. I felt personally involved in what was going on, and I couldn’t wait to find out more! I like that it took us through many years of trials and tribulations that happened in Haiti, as well."

'This was an incredible addition to my journey' reviews Early Risers on Renewal "Anytime" 10 Day Detox by Lisa Consiglio Ryan......"One of the obstacles of having Fibromyalgia is dealing with inflammation, and another is reaching a healthy weight. Both of these are impacted by fibro, and conversely, affect how well I can live with and manage the disease. I need to have a healthy diet, reduce -if not eliminate – sugar, and eat foods that naturally help reduce inflammation in the body.Reading “Renewal ‘Anytime’ 10 Day Detox by Lisa Consiglio Ryan came at the right time and as a pre-sent help for me. I wasn’t sure I could commit to this type of regimen for 10-days, thinking I would be hungry, or I wouldn’t be able to get it right, and other self-defeating thoughts – before I even began. I believe that is a huge part of why it’s necessary to read the book completely through from the front to the back, FIRST, before jumping into the plan. Doing that helped me realize that I really could do this, and that preparing recipes and all of the tips provided would help me be successful.I have to say that following the steps in the plan helped me get my mind and body on one accord. I feel like my body was rid of the things that clogged it and made me dredge through life, fighting against this fibro syndrome. At the same time I felt like my mind was renewed and refreshed to plan more clearly how to manage a lot of different things I was dealing with.I’m definitely a believer, now, that this 10-day Detox is well worth pre-planning, following the tips and the plan as closely as possible with the encouragement that is written into the plan. I am going to do it again whenever I feel myself fumbling or plateauing. I love that there is a pre-plan, the plan, and then the after-plan. All of the drinks taste incredible, and there is not one person in my little family who doesn’t like them. This was an incredible addition to my journey, and I am still doing some juices with my regular diet."Read more on #book, #detox and #recipes here...http://31daysearlyirise.com/2015/09/09/10-days-to-renewal-nothing-t...
'I have never read a book that took me through so many emotions' Book Review - Fractured Not Broken by Kelly Craig Schaefer with Michelle Weidenbenner plus $25 Amazon GC / Paypal Giveaway
Guest Book Review by Jacqueline Albrecht"What an amazing story!! I have never read a book that took me through so many emotions. The book was really well written from start to finish, and had me wanting to keep going back to read a little bit more.
Kelly is truly an unsung hero, and her family are amazing. When the accident first happened, it made me both upset and angry. Upset at the fact that both Kelly and Jason's lives were going to change so dramatically, and angry that this was caused by some silly man that didn't give a second thought to driving a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, even though he was told not to.
As I read further into the story, I found I could only admire Kelly's determination and courage at the way she handled the change to her whole life, and also the sheer determination of her family to help her achieve everything she wants.
I am so pleased that both Kelly and Jason had such amazing family and friends around them to help them cope with the changes to their bodies, and I hope they both go on to achieve everything they want.
The highlight of the story for me was Kelly achieving her goal to become a teacher and how the children welcomed her with open arms and showed her so much love, and also her wedding.
I hope that Kelly goes on to write a follow on book so that we can find out if she eventually got the children from the Congo and also how both her and Jason's recovery is.
Everyone who complains about minor ailments and everyday problems should read Kelly's book because it really makes you sit up and think how lucky we are and what we can achieve if we put our minds to it."

'Amazing, Hot, Sexy & Sensual' Cali Book Reviews NEW #Romance Seaside Nights by Melissa Foster.......
"First things first, It’s a Melissa Foster book! Do you THINK it’s going to be bad? I didn’t think so! Amazing, Hot, Sexy, Sensual. Can all men talk to women like Sawyer does? Holy hell! And his name just screams sexy! I think I fell in love with Sawyer right off the bat. And Sky. I just love her too! She’s very artsy. She owns a tattoo shop, which I think would be amazing!
Sawyer is super sensitive, I gathered. He’s super romantic (swoon!) and the way he talks to Sky, Oh my!
It was so easy to get drawn into this book, definitely NOT unlike the rest of Melissa’s books! She’s such an amazing author, and I have been wanting to read Sky’s story for a long time. One thing I felt about this book is that we learned a lot more about Sawyer than we did about Sky, but that’s fine!
Read this! You will not be disappointed!"
