BLURB:

Half-bloods with Thierry’s skill set are given two options. They can join the conclave’s marshal program, or they can pack their bags. Turn down the job offer, and you’ve just shredded your residency pass for the mortal realm and booked yourself a one-way ticket to Faerie.

Texas is the only home Thierry has ever known, and she’s not going anywhere. Even if it means following in her notorious father’s footsteps as a peacekeeper. But pinning on the badge opens her eyes to the fact sometimes fae need protection too, and that sometimes humans are the real monsters.

Author Bio:

Born in the Deep South, Hailey is a lifelong resident of Alabama. Her husband works for the local sheriff’s department and her daughter is counting down the days until she’s old enough to audition for American Idol. Her doxie, Black Ilex, helps Hailey write by snoozing in his recliner in her office.

Her desire to explore without leaving the comforts of home fueled her love of reading and writing. Whenever the itch for adventure strikes, Hailey can be found with her nose glued to her Kindle’s screen or squinting at her monitor as she writes her next happily-ever-after.

EXCERPT:

Burnt ozone tingled in my nose. I inhaled deeply, but all I scented was the coming storm. Thunder boomed overhead, rumbling through the ground under my feet. I was still hunched behind a twisted metal sculpture of a giant rooster when the first lukewarm raindrops splattered on my cheeks.

Movement on my right slammed the brakes on my heart. I squinted where I thought I glimpsed a pale blur, but the sun was too far gone and the scrapyard too dark for me to tell what it had been.

Reading Day!

Happy Sunday Everyone!

Did you enjoy the extra hour of sleep last night? My boys didn’t believe in sleeping during that bonus hour, however, thanks to the crisp air they are both curled up snoring right now. With that being said and after the busy week that we have had, I will be joining them in a few moments. My plans for the day will be reading and snuggling up with them all day!!!

I have three books that I will be finishing today. What are your plans for the day? Are you experiencing some unexpected chilly weather too? Whatever your plans may be, I hope you have a great day!

Enjoy!

A Halloween Treat

Hi Everyone,

Happy Halloween!!! I am super excited this morning. I get to attend a luncheon today, where author Diane Chamberlain will be speaking. I can’t wait to hear what she has to say about her latest book. Early last year, I had the pleasure of reading Necessary Lies and that story has stayed close to my heart and mind all this time. (You can read my review of it, here.) I am very grateful for this special opportuntiy.

Have a fabulous Friday everyone! And I hope your Halloween is filled with treats!

Enjoy!

A Quote to Begin Your Day…

“You are never stronger…than when you land on the other side of despair.”

~Zadie Smith

 

 

I am not going to lie, I have been having a hard time this past week. My Mom’s Birthday was last week and it is the first one without my Grandfather. I miss him dearly, and even though I know he was shining down on her that day, my heart still aches with his physical absence.

Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!

Enjoy!

My Sister’s Books Review #58

Meena Mouse’s Perfect Raspberry

By: Trilby Plants

Illustrated by: Deborah Gagnon

1st grade and Younger

 

Meena Mouse has run away from home after eating the raspberry that her Mom was going to use to make a tart. Lost in the forest, Meena runs into the Silver Mouse who helps her find a perfect raspberry, but will Meena be able to find her way home?

Beautifully illustrated, this book pops with vibrant backgrounds. Children everywhere will enjoy the bold, colorful world of Meena Mouse. Written with short, repetitious sentences, this book is a nice choice for parents to read to their kids. As with every good children’s book, there is a moral to be learned from Meena’s adventure.
