Deep Fried and Pickled by Paisley Ray (The Rachael O'Brien Chronicles Book 1) 'The quirkiness of the book is quite endearing, welcoming and warm. It’s a great read for when you don’t want something that is completely serious. I can’t wait to read more about Rachael’s college adventures!' reviews Lynchburg Mama
 
Paisley Ray books are not your typical fiction. A young woman's plan for an art history degree turns into an outrageous series of misadventures in this laugh-out-loud romp about a girl who enrolls in a southern college during the height of the crazy era that was the 1980’s. This collection crosses genres of chick lit, mystery, romance, humor, and action with the possibility of a corpse or two. To date there are 8 novels in this humorous romantic misadventure mystery series with book #9 due to release spring of 2016.
 
It’s ’86, the era of Pop Rocks, Jelly shoes, and big hair rock bands. Rachael O'Brien's freshman plan seems simple: Attend a southern college, earn a degree, party, and meet cute guys—hopefully acing the latter two.
 
But being threatened by a jealous She-Devil, avoiding the advances of a thirty-something redneck, and discovering an art fraud scheme thwart her “to do” list. On top of her troubles at school, Rachael finds herself forging a new relationship with her emotionally shaken father after Mom abandons the family to pursue a psychic calling.
 
Bad decision-making, law-bending behavior, and surprise romances make freshman year memorable in Paisley Ray’s DEEP FRIED AND PICKLED.

TAKEN BY LOVE is a USA TODAY BESTSELLER 

TAKEN BY LOVE is Book 1 in The Bradens at Trusty, CO series, from the award-winning BRADEN series by New York Times & USA Today bestselling author Melissa Foster . *All BRADEN books can be enjoyed as stand-alone novels or as part of the series* 

In TAKEN BY LOVE... 
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.

Cali Book Reviews​ and her two sons enjoyed reading Africa's "Big Five" Wild Animals by Anna and Frankie Othitis Authors
 
"This book was great. Explaining that most of the animals mentioned were close to extinction and that if that happens, no one will be able to see these animals again, my boys absolutely loved it. Of course, I read through it, then both of them read it on their own kindles. My 9 year old is more of a reader, and more into outdoors stuff, science, and animals, where as my 7 year old is all about sports and games, but they both really enjoyed it a lot. At the beginning of the book is a map of Africa, along with flags as to where these animals are from, and that’s awesome. Huge photos of the big 5 animals are in there also. I would highly suggest you get this for your child or one that you are close to that you would get gifts for, because this is not only very explanatory, but it’s also very likely to provide hours of entertainment!"

Dragon Wife by Diana Green, Dragon Clan (Book 1) Miki's Hope reviews 'Huroth, the chief of the dragons, fell for Lady Orwenna--but could she learn to trust him? Could this improbable romance ever come to fruition? Read the book to find out! The ending will make you want to read more---which I will be doing once it is released!!'

The clan is waking. After centuries of spellbound sleep, dragon-shifters are returning to the mountains. They are few in number, and the outside world has become overrun with humans.

Huroth, the dragon chieftain, recognizes a need for his kind to adapt, by forming alliances and mate-bonds with humans, but his clan is divided. From the first time she meets him, Lady Orwenna is drawn to the magnificent chieftain. The mind link he forms with her is both fascinating and frightening, as is the powerful attraction she feels for him. If only she knew what was in his heart.

Does he want her for the woman she is, or for her magical abilities? When war breaks out between kingdoms and ancient enemies of the dragons resurface, the clan will be tested. In the midst of uncertainty, can Huroth and Orwenna find their way together?

Our Beck Valley Book Review of Discovering Delilah by Melissa Foster (Harborside Nights Book #2) 'leaves you with a warm longing to read more from the Harborside friends'......

"Opening up a Harborside Nights book is just like meeting up with your old friends, the excitement, the welcoming, the fun, the issues and more importantly the love they all give to one another, There is a warm softness to Melissa's writing that is addictive, after reading Catching Cassidy and feeling the whole friendly vibe of Harborside, I couldn't wait to dive straight back in with Delilah, although each can be totally read on their own as it briefly refreshes you on the main topics.

There is more to this story than romance, it carries depth with realistic scenarios that can effect everybody regardless of what your sexuality is, to be hesitant on reading this book simply because of the female/female romance would be such a shame.

Ashley and Delilah have the hots for each other, yet neither of them know. Delilah hesitates as she has never been with a girl and has the enormous pressure on her shoulders of the hostility people will treat her with. She carries the guilt of letting her parents down just before they died suddenly in a car crash, as she announced to them her sexuality and what she thought was the huge disappointment in their eyes. On the other side, Ashley has been hurt from a previous relationship and has sworn to herself never to fall into a similar trap. What they both don't realize is that love has it's own way of mending things.

The whole story takes the reader through many emotions, the joys life can bring, the amazing gift of true friendships and love, the constant worry of acceptance from others, the pains and sadness of self doubt and peer pressure, with all the stages of grief wrapped tightly around it all. One thing I hadn't expected was to shed a tear while reading, if only people were more open toward one another.

I also found myself thinking throughout the story of my own beliefs and as the author brings to light how as parents we might easily imprint our belief's in our child's mind without giving it another thought, not knowing what damage this really might cause them years down the line. It certainly made me think.

Discovering Delilah is a wonderful, and at times thought provoking, read that leaves you with a warm longing to read more from the Harborside friends."

New #romance release Surrender My Love by Melissa Foster  (Love in Bloom, The Bradens of Peaceful Harbor #2) 'The author, as always, develops compelling characters and interesting storylines.' reviews Romance Reader​ 'I loved Cole from the minute he walked onto the page. He is extremely sexy - it just oozes out of the pages as you read about him'....

Fall in love with Cole Braden in the Bradens of Peaceful Harbor. Hot, sexy, & wickedly naughty second cousins to the Weston, Colorado Bradens we know and love. .

In SURRENDER MY LOVE... Annalise "Leesa" Avalon never realized that one sentence could change her life until one of her students revealed his crush--and within twenty-four hours she finds herself under fire. After a grueling investigation that turns her life upside down, she steals away to Peaceful Harbor, Maryland, with a new identity to try to pull herself back together and figure out her next step.

From the outside, Cole Braden lives a charmed life. He's a top orthopedic surgeon with a thriving practice, strong family ties, and friends he adores. But there's a lonely spot inside Cole that no one can see. He has an enormous heart--and a painful past--but the desire to love and be loved is too strong to ignore.

A chance encounter brings Leesa and Cole together, and the attraction is immediate and intense. But a relationship is the last thing Leesa needs--and the only thing Cole wants. Long talks, heated moments, and deep connections are hard to resist, but the harder Cole tries, the more Leesa pulls away. Cole might truly be the right man for Leesa, but is Leesa the right woman for him?

SURRENDER MY LOVE is part of the Love in Bloom series. While SURRENDER MY LOVE can be read as a stand-alone novel, for even more reading enjoyment you may want to read the entire Love in Bloom series in series order.

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**

'The author deserves accolades for writing a novel that captures the times and the fears of that age (and beyond) and capturing the attention that didn't quit until the last page was turned.' Miki's Hope review on Carolyn Menke, Author​'s Return to Me, NOW the prequel has been released - I'm Yours..........

"If you have read Return to Me (my review here) you might have wondered like I did why Sadie's mother ended up leaving her to continue on with her life--without her daughter. Most of the answer to that question resides within the covers of this novella prequel "I'm Yours".

Although I am cognizant of the times that all this took place I truly can't comprehend what it must have been like in that day and age for a woman to have such a burning wish to become a famous actress-that she could turn her back on everything, including the man she was in love with. That burning desire was to be her downfall ultimately.

I am just so glad that those days are mostly over and now both Men and Women can be what they want to be without society ripping them apart."

I'm Yours Book Description
New Release....
I’m Yours is the prequel to Return To Me. This companion novella spins the tale of how Sadie’s mother, Audrey, becomes Audrey McCall, and the events leading up to one fateful decision that will affect generations to come.

The Roaring Twenties spell opportunity for Audrey McCall, a starlet who’s as irresistible as the illegal booze poured behind every shuttered speakeasy. Her big theater dreams include landing the impossible, a role on Broadway. But she’s fallen in love with handsome Edward Stark, who wants her to be his leading lady and his alone.

Edward’s confessed his love and is ready to embark on a future with Audrey. No more sneaking off to speakeasies and enduring cast parties, where the catcalls of men directed at his main squeeze get under his skin. Wouldn’t Audrey rather become the mother of his children than worry about the next paycheck?

Muddying the waters is the shifty Rex Wyatt, a new playwright in town, who promises to make Audrey a star. If Audrey gets the part of her dreams, she has to take it. There are no second chances in theater. Are there second chances in love?

5* review for The Girl in Red Pajamas mystery by CHRIS BIRDY 'I read this whole series and thoroughly enjoyed the road' reviews Miki's Hope​
 
"I don't think you could find a more dysfunctional group of family and friends if you tried!! And little 4 year old Isabela is one smart little lady--a bit too smart for her own good. She is an accomplished Ninja, loves sword play and doing anything for Da Dee--or to protect those around her. Of course being 4 she doesn't really understand what some of the ramifications could be--but in dire circumstances (like when she is caught)-she can play the I'm just a little girl very well. Luckily she takes after her Dad who more or less knows how to handle her--more or less--and he is the only semi sane one in the bunch--but then he is not really from that family.
 
I read this whole series and thoroughly enjoyed the road--even though I found myself cringing at some of what went on-I mean really. I think I might have been tempted to put a leash on that child and keep her eternally attached--if only for my sanity and her good!!"
