Enjoying Home Again by Kathleen Shoop today is Life as Leels...."The first time I read Hale’s name, I knew I was going to fall in love with him.And I did.This was a quick read (literally only took me a couple of hours). Aside from the fact that it really isn’t that long, I didn’t want to put it down.I kept forgetting it was set back in a different time where women weren’t “allowed” the independence we have now, but hot dang, if a man such as Hale wanted to do things for me and protect me and take care of me, so be it!This was a fabulous romance story that I absolutely fell in love with. I loved April, I fell madly in love with Hale, and I would love a place like Bliss."Read more on the #book here....http://lifeasleels.com/2013/12/home-again-2.html
1969– Set on the shores of the Albemarle Sound, April Harrington has fond memories of summers at her family home, Bliss. After her fairytale wedding disintegrates, it becomes her refuge—the one place where she can attempt to pull the unraveling threads of her life back together. Unbeknownst to April, the stately house has been neglected in recent years. The once-sturdy roof is leaking in a few dozen places, and the wharf is rotting. Nothing is the same as she remembers. Nothing except for Hale, a Viet Nam pilot who is haunted by a dreadful secret, and who is also her brother’s best friend, a brother killed in the conflict that is tearing the country apart.
In Hale’s presence, April finds familiarity and solace. They share grief for a lost loved one, and from the comfort of Hale’s arms, passion blooms. Yet, April’s future is unresolved. Her wealthy, arrogant almost-bridegroom wants her back and the ghosts of Viet Nam are whispering to Hale. Can they find new love in an old treasured home, the kind of affection and trust that lasts forever?
Create With Joy reviews mystery #book The Bridesmaid today by Jenny Scotti....."Wow, this book really was an eye opener to a lot of things that can go on in a town! And the strange part is that there are so many suspects because Kelly was not a good person, but she was a person who deserved better. She was pregnant with a married man's baby, but he isn't the one who killed her. The killer will really shock you and the worst shock is that as the book ends, no one will find out who the killer is. But you will want to read this book to discover why and how a 16 year old girl could bring a whole town to it's knee's and be so problematic to a lot of adult lives. I don't blame kids for mistakes, I blame adults who know better. But still, the story will shock you down to the core! A must read if you love mysteries and love to solve them!"http://www.mmbearcupoftea.com/2013/12/the-bridesmaid-book-review.html

Here is another chance to read an excerpt from Dog-ma the zen of slobber by Author Barbara Boswell Brunner over at Kol's NotesExcerpt from Chapter One: Blood - Read the excerpt herehttp://kolchakpuggle.com/2013/11/win-woof-worthy-read-zen-dogma.htmlAbout Dog-maBarbara’s vivid and dramatic stories, told with a wicked sense of humor, will make you laugh out loud. She definitely gets what living with rescued dogs (nine of them!) is all about.When Barbara meets her future husband, Ray, it is love-and dog-at first sight. Over the course of thirty-two years, seventeen relocations and nine dogs, their mutual love of dogs guides them on their unconventional path. The love that Barbara and Ray get in return is literally lifesaving, with one dog attacking a lethal intruder and another discovering Barbara’s cancer. Her own survival story underscores the story of how her dogs become survivors themselves.Each new dog adds its own dynamic to the family, sometimes upending it. From Turbo (whose Spock-like ears may have provided super powers), Barbara learns about the will to live; Lexington demonstrates incredible patience and an inexplicable love of golf; Madison teaches that laughter is truly the best medicine and that the whole “nine lives thing” is not reserved just for cats; Morgan should be sainted for tolerating Izzy, who is as cute as she is bad. Barbara is certain that somewhere in doggie heaven there is a poster that says “If you are sick, injured or in need of really expensive medical care, FIND THESE HUMANS!”Throughout 2012 and 2013, Dog-Ma has been on the Bestseller lists of Kindle, Amazon and Goodreads aswell as being named as a finalist in the 2013 Next Generation Indie Book Awards in the animal/pet category and presented with a medal at the Harvard Club in New York City – May 2013.
NEW BOOK RELEASE
Where Petals Fall by Melissa Foster
As a mother, this book pulled me in from page one, where Junie grapples with concern over her daughter’s unexplained regression. As the story unfolds and memories of a shocking family secret start to surface, the reader anguishes alongside Junie as she struggles to make sense of the pieces. As a mystery, this book will keep you enthralled. As a love story, it is a poignant reflection on the harsh realities of marriage. Happily ever after is not riding off into the sunset with Prince Charming, instead it is a complex, intertwining of two lives that requires honesty, compassion, and commitment. Both Junie, in her relationship with her husband, and Ruth (Junie’s mother) in her relationship with Junie’s father, teach valuable lessons about how one navigates the gray area of marriage since not all of life’s problems can be identified as black-and-white.
Overall, I rate this book 5 out of 5. I love books that pull the reader in and take them on a journey and this is one of those books.
