'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!"

Brand New Book Release! Laguna Nights by Kaira Rouda 'highly enjoyed' by Gina's Library of Reviews.....

"This is book 1 of the Laguna Beach series.

Everyone has watched at least one episode of reality TV at some point. Are you sure things are the way they seem, or are they scripted and/or edited? This is exactly the setting for this book.

Josh and Holly/Madison met in high school and they worked together on the reality TV show Laguna Nights. Their breakup was shared on national TV for all to see.

Josh is back in town still trying to get his acting career off the ground. Holly now goes by Madison and has tried to put that part of her life behind her. She doesn’t want anything to do with Hollywood.

It’s been 15 years since they’ve seen each other. Can time repair hurt and betrayal? Are things really the way Madison thinks they are?

At first I found the character Madison annoying. She goes on and on about how Josh humiliated her and ruined her life. Really? We’ve all had some kind of hurt in the past. We need to pick up the pieces and move on.
Josh tried really hard to try and fix things with Madison. They never forgot about each other or their time together. They are forced to work together again on this new TV show. Will it work out? Is it too little too late?

Although I didn’t like the character Madison at first, I did highly enjoy this book. I can’t wait to read book 2."

Our Beck Valley book review of The Road Home by Kathleen Shoop​ 'another realistic and compelling tale from a truly magnificent author'....

Having read and been fully captivated by the first book in the Letter Series. The Last Letter, I have been eagerly awaiting this second book and couldn't wait to jump in. If you haven't read the first book don't worry as it can be easily read on its own as the author refers back to previous events, BUT in all honesty you will be missing such a touching story, the heart of what they have gone through whilst also getting to know the captivating Arthur family even more.

This is a story of love, hope, regret, forgiveness and realizing not everything is as you believe it is. The story follows a mother's love for her children, her despair at not being together and the hardships they have all faced whilst being separated. Jeanie Arthur is a character that reaches out to me from the pages and literally pulls away at my heart while reading her story, I could follow her journey of obstacles and how she overcomes them all day long. The time period is 1890's when status and titles were completely different from today's world. Now finding herself divorced from her addict & two timing husband, the world is massively different in how she is treated, penniless and unable to look after her two eldest children she makes the heart wrenching sacrifice to let them go and serve other families in the hope that they one day they will find a better life.

You will follow Jeannie, her daughter Katherine and son Tommy's determined story as they each tell their own tale after being ripped apart from one another throughout the book as it swaps between them as you read. Unfortunately for both Katherine and Tommy their life wasn't what their mother hoped and they both had to endure the harshness of the times they found themselves in. Will they finally be reunited?

I've got to admit I was constantly apprehensive whilst reading on, anticipating what could go wrong for them, holding my breath as I read. This was another realistic and compelling tale from a truly magnificent author, I am sooooo hanging on for more of the Arthur family's story, following on from where it left, hoping that it won't be too long.

NEW RELEASE Booker: Blood Ring by John W. Mefford | Author is 'a tale of greed, slave trading and murder' reviews Miki's Hope.....

"The first couple of sentences will catch you quickly and for me it continued throughout this novel! You really have to click in to read those first sentences!! Angie, Booker's assistant who is more like a partner in his PI firm has a sister--a wild child who has suddenly and mysteriously gone missing. Another girl is found horribly mutilated at a dump. Hoping the two cases are not related Booker is bound and determined to find the perpetrators. He is also trying to hold Angie together who is trying to hold it together but is scared to death for her sister.

Meanwhile Booker's daughter, Samantha is at the age where she is asking questions--you know the kind--the ones you really don't know how to answer!! It does bring some comic relief to this tale of greed, slave trading and murder.

Will Booker, Alicia and a host of other police and FBI officials be able to bring down this ring? Will Angie's sister be saved in time? And you won't believe who is really behind all this--and it is not who you will think it is!!"

BRAND NEW RELEASE - The Road Home by Kathleen Shoop​ is reviewed by Libri Amori miei​ 'The plot is uniquely and gorgeously developed'

"I thoroughly enjoyed this book from beginning to end! It 'so well-written, compelling that I could not put it down.

The plot is uniquely and gorgeously developed. Two children Tommy and Katherine were separated from their mother Jeanie when they were 14. Their life will be tough and difficult but all of them will fight very hard to reunite the family. The story is narrated by alternating the point of view of three main characters: a narrative choice really winning.

It's the second book in " The Letters Series" but you do not have to have read the first one to enjoy this one. It's the first novel I read of this author and I look forward to reading the others, especially the Last Letter."
