<3 In BAYSIDE ESCAPE...
Fall in love at Bayside, where sandy beaches, good friends, and true love come together in the sweet small towns of Cape Cod. Bayside Summers is a series of standalone steamy romance novels featuring alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They're fun, flirty, flawed, deeply emotional, always passionate, and easy to relate to.

Two years ago Violet Vancroft was a nomadic artist who never wanted to put down roots and Andre Shaw was a prominent Boston physician whose roots ran too deep to unearth. Their love didn't stand a chance-or at least that's what Violet believed when she received a plea for help from the sister she'd never really known-so she snuck away like a thief in the night.

Now Andre travels the world setting up new medical clinics, and Violet has finally found the family she'd always craved and the roots she'd never known she wanted. When their paths cross unexpectedly, it's not the reunion either one imagined. But they've never stopped loving each other, and after the dust of anger and hurt settles, passion ignites even hotter than before. As the end to Andre's time at the Cape nears, reality sets in, leaving them no closer to a future than they were before. Violet and Andre are forced to dig deep to discover if they're destined to live apart forever or if true love really can conquer all.

Ninety-one-year-old Patryk Rusek hides in his attic, hoping the searchers think he’s escaped. When Lucy finally bursts in, she discovers her beloved grandfather clutching a fat, hand-illustrated, antique book. In it is the story of Donora, the town that shaped America, its people and Patryk himself. Before long, Lucy and her son Owen lose track of their goal to get Grandpa Patryk somewhere “safe” as they’re drawn into the book, back in time, into stories that read like real-life fairytales born of purpose, hard-work, and chance.
 
1910 Donora, Pennsylvania
 
In the early dawn of Donora, Pennsylvania, the mills make and shape the steel that builds America. Mary Lancos lives in a home on the hill overlooking town and its mighty Monongahela River. That tiny house bursts with her siblings and boarders. Wind whipping through the walls and windows makes Mary determined to marry well and create a better life.
 
Shy Pole, Lukasz Musial, arrives in Donora seeking the clear blue skies, green lawns, and better life he’d seen pictured on a postcard. Settled in Donora’s Polish community, Lukasz secures a coveted job in the wire mill. Life is set on course to achieve the American Dream. All he needs is a wife who believes in him, in his mighty, quiet, strength.
 
After a series of casual, friendly meetings, fate brings Mary and Lukasz to the river under a snowy, pink moonlit sky and everything changes. Their attraction is sudden and consuming, turning the pair onto an unexpected path. With mounting disapproval from Mary’s parents she and Lukasz must decide if love is enough to risk losing everything else that matters.

Book Review - Money or Men by David Burnett

Money or Men - David  Burnett

As usually David Burnett connects the reader easily in to the story and it's characters. Erin and Chris haven't been together for years, their two young girls live with Erin, and they haven't seen Chris since the divorce.  Erin is driven by her passion of work and the wealth it will eventually bring as she rises higher on the ladder of success. She was never content with her life in the suburbs which is one of the main reasons for divorce as she felt that Chris had little motivation to achieve more in life than he already had.

Erin's dream finally becomes reality as she gets the promotion she so desires but it comes with a huge problem, the work will take up all her days and nights and will leave her no time for her children who are due to be off for the summer holidays.  Having no where else to turn she reluctantly turns to Chris for help, but worries about the two of them connecting after all this time and how each other will respond and the feelings it might bring to the surface.

The author takes us through their journey which is full of deliberations, second thoughts, miscommunications and deep hidden love, which has you wondering if either will open up to each other. There are times to smile through the story and times of suspense as the story takes a twist.

Book Review - On the Count of Three (Brandon Fisher FBI series Book 7) by Carolyn Arnold

On the Count of Three (Brandon Fisher FBI #7) - Carolyn Arnold

Another brilliant and excellent psychological thriller and we are on the case again with Brandon Fisher and his acquaintances.

How do you find out who is sending decapitated heads as messages? Carolyn Arnold's brilliant insight to detective lines of inquiry and thought process is second to none. The creation of smart and intelligent criminals adds to the story line with no hints as to the mastermind behind the killings or their reason for them. keeps the reader enrapt and intrigued. The book is a fast paced page turner that keeps the reader enrapt and intrigued to find out if the authorities will catch the culprit before he strikes again.

I have read several novels by the author and have never been disappointed in their content, intrigue, brilliant descriptive writing and the way she draws to her conclusions. The characters go from strength to strength in every novel they appear.

Having read a lot of British murder mysteries, Carolyn is becoming one of my favorites from over the pond and always look forward to her next publication and should be on any readers list. As with any good detective series I hope they make it into a TV series.

Book Description
Can true love strike twice in one lifetime? 
Josie Beckley refuses to believe there is a limit on happiness. A decade after she escaped her abusive parents and lost touch with her siblings, the death of her husband leaves her and her son homeless. But Josie has never been one to wallow in sadness, and when she takes a chance on reconnecting with her siblings, a sinfully handsome bright light from her past shows up and offers to help her find a way out of the darkness. 

Most people wouldn't see Jed Moon as someone to look up to. He's been in and out of jail and has lived a less-than-stellar lifestyle. But years ago one woman saw through his bullshit, and he's never forgotten her. Now she's back in his life, and as a prospect for the Dark Knights motorcycle club, Jed promises to keep an eye on the sassy, sexy single mother who has never stopped lighting his fantasies on fire. 

Jed and Josie's combustible connection is stronger than ever. Having Josie and her son in his life brings out all of Jed's protective instincts-and visions of a future he never imagined having. But when a shocking revelation knocks the insatiable lovers to their knees, it forces them to make choices that could change their lives forever.

In TRAILS OF LOVE...
When Graham Braden travels to Oak Falls, Virginia to attend the wedding of his buddy Reed Cross to Grace Montgomery, he sticks around to help with renovations to Reed's new theater. The last thing he expects is to be asked to assess and possibly invest in Grace's sister Morgyn's business endeavor. Graham is a careful, keen businessman, and Morgyn is impulsive, disorganized, and more interested in the energy flow in her eclectic retail shop than in the accuracy of her records. While Graham isn't ready to open his pockets to the sassy, sexy business owner, he may be ready to open his heart.

Book Review - Bayside Escape (Bayside Summers Book 4) by Melissa Foster

Book Review - Bayside Escape (Bayside Summers Book 4) by Melissa Foster I always try to convey how much emotion is felt by reading a book, with this book I hope I achieved that as it was a total delight to read and watch their depth of love grow for each other...
 
"Hands down this is my favorite Bayside couple by far, and I have loved them all, but Violet and Andre hit bullseye with all the feels. I loved every minute of their story.
 
Their powerful feelings instantly begin to stir deep inside as they are unexpectedly reunited at Desiree and Rick's wedding. Andre's pain and sense of loss since losing Violet previously is really quite overwhelming. Both confused on how things ended before, their infectious feelings for each other go from pain and built up tension to the deepest longing that simply oozes of the pages in to your heart, so clear, so emotional.
 
Violet has so many walls surrounding her from years of feeling hurt, unloved, and abandoned that she copes by putting up a hard exterior and comes out with some awesome wise cracks to cover how she really feels deep down. She's a girl who speaks her mind with no second thoughts, tact and diplomacy go right out of the window. I liked Vi before but I came to love her so much after this.
 
Andre is heaven sent, he gently and lovingly chips away at her battle amour with love and encouragement to allow her softer, vulnerable side to appear here and there. With patience, which Andre will have, there's no doubt in my mind that theirs is a beautiful love waiting to grow stronger day by day. They know each other so well, they have a beautiful understanding of each others wants, strength and weaknesses and how to bring the best out of each other.
 
Gaining a better understanding of Lizza's ways was another plus point, even though alien to most people, I could see how her thought pattern worked and how she could perceive her actions as good intentions.
 
Emotional in parts, fun in others, this was such an uplifting and enjoyable read, when I finished I was left with a full heart and a smile on my face."

But when Jamie’s business encounters trouble and his attorney and best friend intervenes, he proves that the brown-haired beauty is too distracting for Jamie. To make matters worse, it appears that Jessica might not be who she says she is, turning Jamie’s life–and his heart–upside down. In a world where personal information is always one click away, Jamie must decide if he should trust his heart or watch the woman he loves walk away.

"Together Andre and Violet are the epitomai of ‘Love is patient’ and that the ‘heart wants what it wants’, and like all Melissa Foster’s heroes and heroines, they are uniquely relatable. Topics such as abandonment and dyslexia are discussed within this book, and I truly believe that Foster puts a voice to all the suffering that goes on in the everyday lives of her readers. She knows how to depict heartache and pain, whilst conjuring a raw passion that you can't help but want more of. But the way which she describes love is what makes her books addictive and makes you want more." - Carly Louise Wilson

"For Andre, Violet is the one who walked away and left him with a broken heart. For Violet, Andre is the man who has the power to break more than her heart. Bayside Escape takes a mess and turns it into something beautiful. Unforgettable is too tame a word to describe this couple. Soul - stirring is more accurate." reviews Isha Coleman - I Love Romance

Book Review - Please Explain Tonsillectomy and Adenoidectomy to Me by Laurie Zelinger and Perry Zelinger

The "O, My" in Tonsillectomy & Adenoidectomy: How to Prepare Your Child for Surgery, a Parent's Manual - Laurie Zelinger

This book is so cleverly written to not only calm parent and patient about the named operation procedures, I believe it can be applied to a number of hospital or difficult procedures. It takes you through the explanation of the operations for the above conditions, what to expect, how to carefully plan and prepare, how to explain what is going to happen, when it is going to and why it is necessary.

The book includes excellent graphics and simple text explanations to ease any parent or child who is about to undergo that operation and some great ideas to make your child feel special. Taking each step of the procedure one at a time gently preparing and reassuring your child all through the process building up their confidence and alleviating their fears as they rise, especially around the surgery and recovery.

Written by experts in their field, using their knowledge, the book is in simple format which makes total sense to a parent, with the addition of the graphic illustrations and large text is very visible it makes it appealing for the child to share with the parent.

I would highly recommend this book to any parent whose child is going to experience a hospital procedure as it will help keep you calm as you see your child relaxing about the procedure as they know exactly what is going to happen and when.

Book Description 
Fall in love with Addison Cole's rich and romantic storytelling, and discover the magic of the Montgomerys. The Corner of Heartbreak and Forever is a standalone novel featuring a fiercely loyal hero and a smart, sassy heroine.

 

IN THE CORNER OF HEARTBREAK AND FOREVER...
Leaving New York City and returning to her hometown to teach a screenplay writing class seems like just the break Grace Montgomery needs. Until her sisters wake her at four thirty in the morning to watch the hottest guys in town train wild horses and she realizes that escaping her sisters' drama-filled lives was a lot easier from hundreds of miles away. To make matters worse, she spots the one man she never wanted to see again--ruggedly handsome Reed Cross.

 

Reed was one of Michigan's leading historical preservation experts, but on the heels of catching his girlfriend in bed with his business partner, his uncle suffers a heart attack. Reed cuts all ties and returns home to Oak Falls to run his uncle's business. A chance encounter with Grace, his first love, brings back memories he's spent years trying to escape.

 

Grace is bound and determined not to fall under Reed's spell again--and Reed wants more than another taste of the woman he's never forgotten. When a midnight party brings them together, passion ignites and old wounds are opened. Grace sets down the ground rules for the next three weeks. No touching, no kissing, and if she has it her way, no breathing, because every breath he takes steals her ability to think. But Reed has other ideas...

 

**


The Corner of Heartbreak and Forever is a Sweet with Heat novel and conveys all of the passion you'd expect to find between two people in love without any graphic scenes or harsh language. If you're looking for a more explicit romance, pick up the steamy edition, Embracing Her Heart, written by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster.

Book Review - Lovers at Heart, Reimagined by Melissa Foster

Lovers at Heart, Reimagined - Melissa Foster

I had already been completely pulled into Treat and Max's 'will they, won't they' relationship when I read the original version a few years ago, but I am so pleased I got another chance to read their story, this time with the benefit of a more in-depth understanding of their first meeting and their relationship. I hadn't really missed it before but once I had read this version it made things connect much more easily for me.  

For Treat and Max, it was definitely love at first sight, but due to their own inner issues, a miscommunication could cause them both to lose the potential love of their life.  Yet fate works it's mysterious charm and weeks later when Treat visits his hometown he and Max are brought together again, but will they allow themselves to step over what is holding them both back and enjoy the happiness they could share together?

I think I love this book more the second time around, I melted as Treats lovable protective side came oozing out for the girl he had so many feelings for. I also found myself tearing up at one point in the story, so moving!

For anyone who has yet to be introduced to the Braden family, wow, they have the most beautiful family bond you could hope for. They have issues and demons to face like most families do but deep down they will always be there for each other, no matter what.

A thoroughly enjoyable, emotional, spicy romance which will have you begging for the next read!
