Our Beck Valley Book Review of After the Evil: A Jake Roberts Novel by Cary Allen Stone 'a real page turner with a very good psychology edge to it'...
"What a novel , a hard hitting story which touches on the dark side of everyone from the serial killer to the police who are investigating the crimes. Although you know who the killer is from the outset, the real gripping thing is the reason why and as these reasons are revealed it draws the reader in.
On the other side we have the police detective who is fighting his demons and will stop at nothing to find the killer and as their paths cross fireworks explode.
The exceptionally thing about this novel is the emotive and human touch that is given to the main characters. If you like hard hitting gritty novels that portray the true side of investigations with no hold bars this is the writer for you.
A real page turner with a very good psychology edge to it. This book kept me enrapt from page one to the end and the only disappointing factor was that it was over too quickly. The first of 3 novels featuring the same detective and on the basis of this one the author has created a detective to rival Morse, Rebus and Frost."

Greed in Paradise by Deborah Brown 'another delightful and compelling addition to the series' reviews Espacular Aiesa
"Don’t you just LOVE book series. Each new Paradise escapade surrounds you, and the characters… they unwittingly become your extended family. Our favorite sleuths, Madison and Fab, are in the fray of a mystery once more. After the death of a friend (somewhat shady dude), the gals are shocked to be listed in his will. It becomes clear pretty that they inherited a bunch of trouble including some old debts. Also clear is the fact that something is very fishy about their friends death. We now have women on the hunt for answers, with a bit of their usual sarcasm – which translates to some quirky dangerous situations.
Then what about the romance…Will Madison finally be done with the ex and start that romance with another person of interest?Hmmmmm! Deborah Brown - Paradise Series is spot-on with another delightful and compelling addition to the series." Espacular Aiesa

Our Beck Valley Books Review of Who Am I? How My Daughter Taught Me to Let Go and Live Again by Author Megan Cyrulewski plus $10 Amazon GC
"Nobody likes to see a marriage break up or a family divided but sadly these things happen and in author Megan Cyrulewski's case this was followed by a long tiresome string of strong intimidation directed at her and her family along with verbal abuse as they went through the process of divorce and a custody case.
You are immediately thrown into the middle of a desperate struggle as soon as you start to read the book between Megan and her ex-husband with their beautiful little girl. Megan then guides you through the traumatic events that had led up to this point since they first met as teenagers.
It became clear in their relationship that things were not going to work out as they had hoped. In Megan's honest and detailed account of their relationship, her life was like walking on egg shells not knowing what to expect next and trying to find the strength to carry on through it. Verbal, mental and financial abuse finally wore her down. Luckily she had the full support of her parents to love, care and protect both her and her daughter.
I do feel that her parents support enabled Megan to find the strength she so needed to get through each battle, along with the strong backing of her attorney. Megan's fight was for the love and safety of their daughter.
My favorite line in the book is the final answer to the question Megan asks herself 'Who Am I?', but you will have to read the book to find that out."

Book Review To Fall in Love Again by David Burnett 'a sensitive and realistic romance' reviews Miki's Hope...
Like "The Handfasting" this is a sensitive and realistic romance which will have you tearing up at several junctures but laughing at others. Families really do cause trouble without meaning to and little children do know what is real!
Drew's wife died--Amy's husband cheated on her then committed suicide (probably). Could love come again-against all odds? Both Drew and Amy felt an instant connection when they met on an airplane and started "dating". Then his world and her hurt conspire to pull them apart. Can they forgive and forget?

Drew Nelson did not plan to fall in love that morning!
He did not plan to talk with anyone. He did not plan to make a new friend. He resisted all of Amy’s attempts to draw him out− at the hotel, at the airport, on the airplane− giving hurried responses and burying his face in a pile of papers.
But when the flight attendant offered coffee, and a muscle in Amy’s back twitched as she reached for it, and the cup tipped, and the hot liquid puddled in Drew’s lap, then they began to talk!
Earlier in the year, each had lost a spouse of over thirty years. Drew’s wife had died of a brain tumor, Amy’s husband when his small airplane nose-dived to earth, the engine at full throttle − an accident, it was ruled. They live in the same city. Both have grandchildren. They are about the same age. Consciously, or not, they both are looking to love again.
But relationships do not exist in vacuums. Drew is wealthy, and Amy is middle class. Amy is “new” in town – she and her husband moved to Charleston twenty-five years ago – while Drew’s family has lived there for three centuries. Drew lives below Broad, a code word for high society, old families, power, and money. Amy’s home is across the river.
Class warfare may be less violent than it was in the past, but when Drew invites Amy to the St Cecelia Ball, battle lines are drawn.
In a city in which ancestry is important, the ball’s membership is passed from father to son, and only those from the oldest families are members.
Family, friends, co-workers all weigh in on their relationship and choose sides. Allies are found in unexpected places. Opposition comes from among those who were thought to be friends. Though they are gone, even their spouses − through things they have done and things they have said − wield influence in the conflict that follows.
Is Drew is one of them, the rich snobs who despise Amy? Does he truly love her?
Does Amy care for Drew? Can she trust him, or is he simply using her?
As each questions the other’s motives, their feelings for each other are tested.
Do Drew and Amy truly want to fall in love again?

Daisy Honey fled Trusty, Colorado, after years of battling rumors sparked by her gorgeous looks and lust-inducing name. 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.
Luke Braden is handsome, wealthy, and the best damn gypsy horse breeder in the Midwest. After a restless youth, he’s finally ready to settle down—only connecting with women is nothing like connecting with horses, and he’s never met a woman worth the energy. After an arrest in a neighboring town, Luke’s past comes back to haunt him, and he realizes that his inability to find love runs deeper than he ever imagined.
A chance encounter sweeps Luke and Daisy into a world of passion. For the first time ever, Luke feels a connection, but Daisy’s life in Trusty is anything but permanent, and Luke can’t manage a future until he puts his past to rest.

Our Beck Valley Book Review of Let Me Show You How I Love You by Jim Cullum "This lovely book can be used by so many different people, those just starting out on their adult or romantic journey going all the way through to those who have been married for so long they have forgotten the true meaning of 'Love' or have taken it a little for granted.I can imagine so many women, once they have read this, leaving it somewhere totally on show for their partner to pick up and hopefully embrace what is inside. The author shares from his own personal experience and simply takes you through the different aspects, tips and ideas that make relationships truly work so you are not settling for second best and even things to consider when doing so. Quotes inside drawings, note pages to write your thoughts on and even website links can also be found too as an extra helpful guide. For those already in relationships it's a good tool on what you should work on to make things blossom, including ways to enjoy each other's company more.One very simple question made such an impact with me that I knew if it was read by somebody close it would really make them think hard and you can find that in the last paragraph on page 38, yes big tease sorry!The author does stress that no matter how hard you try in a relationship or follow any of the advice there is no guarantee that feelings will the reciprocated, you cannot simply 'make' someone love you.One tiny pet hate for me, is the use of the affectionate word 'honey' but I can totally let the author off with this after reading his second Valentine's Day treats for his wife, seriously they could have been written as my dream night!! Love is an extremely special reward between two people as long as you really take the time and effort to make it work and this book is a great start."Read all about the #book and author here.....http://beckvalleybooks.blogspot.co.uk/2015/02/book-review-let-me-sh...

BRAND NEW RELEASE & SERIES!!BOOKER: Streets of Mayhem by John W. Mefford | Author 'Suspense till the very end' reviews Espacular Aiesa....
"Pretty much right off the bat, I decided Booker T Adams is the best of both worlds (not quite white, not quite black). From the start of the book, Officer Booker’s moral standards land him in trouble because he refuses to turn his head when another cop beats an innocent man. Booker will not change his story which jeopardizes his job, then TERROR strikes as a bomb blows up a school bus. With so many dead and more bomb threats on the horizon, he searches to find out what and who is behind these terror attacks. It may look like these threats are racially motivated, but Booker is not sure of that. From psychopaths to con men, Booker becomes the protector of the innocent.
The sky is the limit when it comes to suspense in this book. Til the very end, you will question what will happen next, who is the mystery man, and will Booker solve the mysteries that lay before him?!?! As the first book in the series comes to a close, I am anticipating the next addition to this saga!"

Let Me Show You How I Love You by Jim Cullum 'a great tool for men & couples' reviews Gina's Library of Reviews..."This was a quick read. It is a book designed for men with tips to show the special woman in their life they are loved. At the end of almost every section there is a place to take notes and at the end of the book there is a place to list all the things your woman loves the most (i.e. flower, color etc)Women can read this book and do what I did. I used post it notes to highlight sections I want my husband to pay extra attention to. When appropriate I left a note describing what I would prefer. For example there is a section about buying cards. I wrote a note that I’m not big on cards. I would love a quick handwritten love note instead.This book is great for men to learn to express love more with actions. It’s a great tool for couples too if you use the book in the manner in which I did."Read all about the #book and author here...http://ginaslibrary.info/let-me-show-you/
