The Past, Present, and Future!

Hi Everyone,

The past few weeks have been brutal, health wise. I was too weak to read at the beginning, and there have been a lot of naps during the day, which is not like me. I did finally manage to watch the four new episodes of the Gilmore Girls… and let’s just say that I am still processing my feelings.

The present: This weekend I was able to get back in the flow of reading. Plus, I have managed to complete all emails and I finally have empty inboxes. YAY!  Since, the new Gilmore Girls episodes only contained information about 1 single book… I have added it to the challenge page.

The Future!!!

Well now, here’s the fun and exciting news. Yes, several news items. So hold on tight:

  1. Over the course of the final weeks of this year, I will be posting 100 book reviews. Yes, my friends, you read that right! 100 Book Reviews over the next 20 days. We are going to end 2016, with a BANG! I hope you all enjoy. 🙂 Continue reading

A wildfire out of control…

 

His twin brother is dead and the only way National Intelligence officer, Mitch Holden, is going to make it through the holidays is by staying focused on his latest SCVC Taskforce investigation—catching a homegrown terrorist with a penchant for arson. The terrorist has started a wildfire eating up thousands of acres of forest and putting dozens of people in danger. When Mitch is pulled off that assignment to play bodyguard to a sexy forensic psychologist who sees past all his defenses, he ends up in the middle of a personal wildfire that’s as out of control as the one burning around the two of them.

 

A killer on the loose…

 

The trial that should have made her career cost Dr. Emma Collins everything—her home, her future, the baby that was growing inside her after she testified against famous actor Chris Goodsman, debunking his insanity defense and sending him to prison for murder. Rebuilding her life in the aftermath, Emma now rescues horses, dogs, and juvenile delinquents, and there’s no way she’s heading to a safe house because Chris Goodsman has escaped. She refuses to let anyone terrorize her or destroy her life again. But when a smart-talking, irresistible federal agent shows up insisting he has to protect her, she realizes her new bodyguard needs a bit of therapy. Good thing taking in lost causes happens to be her specialty.

 

Two people filled with grief may get burned…

 

Trapped at the ranch by the wildfire, Mitch and Emma explore a searing attraction, but soon discover they’re not alone. A killer has joined them—one who will do anything to get revenge and isn’t afraid to take out anyone who gets in his way.

I read Deadly Attraction by Misty Evans. Tomorrow morning, my review will be live and there will be a giveaway that you will want to see! Tonight, I am finishing The Eyes Have It by Julie Allan and The Mother’s Promise by Sally Hepworth.

What are you reading?

Enjoy!

Voting, Site Problems, and More

Hi Everyone,

Today started out on a nice, positive note. I was able to get some housework completed, before turning on my computer. As I went to my site, to start sharing reviews, everything went downhill. My site was down for several hours as maintenance occurred, trying to fix a few hosting errors. After everything was fixed, or so I thought, I breathed some fresh air, by going and voting. When I got home, I even voted on the semifinals in the Goodreads awards. Now, I am back online and ready to start sharing reviews…

One problem, though…

It seems a few hundred of my followers been misplaced in the hubbub of today. Now I am working on correcting this, as well as a few minor other things. Hopefully soon, all the kinks will be worked out and everything will be back on track.

Thanks for your patience.

Enjoy!

Manic Monday

Hi Everyone,

How did you all do during the clock change? Did you enjoy the extra hour of sleep or are you still trying to get your bearings? Last week, I had two severe migraines in less than four days, which seriously cut back on my reading time. Saturday night, not only did I enjoy the chance to get a bit more rest, I also have enjoyed the major shift in the weather. The air has finally cooled enough to open the windows and air out the home. YAY! I will be online for most of the day tomorrow, updating the site with plenty of reviews. I hope you all will enjoy them.

In the meantime, tell me what is your favorite thing about Autumn?

Enjoy!
