A truly satisfying, enjoyable read, wrapping the real Christmas spirit around you as you follow the lovable staff and delightful guests for the Christmas celebrations at the Timberton Hotel once again. A heartwarming simple story of days gone by without the need of technology, enjoying this magical season with love, friendships, kindness, tales around the fire, laughter and games. Not forgetting the most delicious cooking from Mist as she begins to prepare for the celebrations, the aromas from the kitchen not only work it's way around the hotel but into the readers mind. And the most realistic smell of orange pomanders Betty had organized for the guests drifted so easily into my mind!
Mist, Betty, Clive and the gang are the most accommodating people you could wish for, giving to all their guests needs and more as they spread their special touches throughout the hotel. Mist as ever, with her spiritual creativity is an absolute delight. One special touch, and a fun opening to the story, was how one of these ideas went a little crazy, what followed was a story full of charm and a pleasure to read.
Reading these stories by Deborah Garner has now become my tradition to the lead up to Christmas, I read this just before we started to put up the Christmas decorations, it was the perfect way to start my favorite time of the year. Numerous cookie recipes at the end of the book was a fabulous bonus to this uplifting read.

Power Struggle by Author Carolyn Arnold (Detective Madison Knight series)
"This one will get your adrenaline as well as your blood pressure up a notch or three!" reviews Miki's Hope
"This is an action packed, thrilling read that has you feeling the fear, frustration and relief that Madison is going through, throughout the whole story." reviewsE Book Addicts
One hit man who’s back for revenge.
One detective who’s not going down without a fight.
It’s been ten months since Detective Madison Knight almost died at the hands of Russian Mafia hit man Constantine Romanov. She hasn’t seen hide nor hair of him since he escaped police custody and fled to Russia soon after his arrest, except now her latest murder investigation gives her reason to believe he’s back in town. Seeing as the victim is the man who killed her grandfather, her perspective may be a little skewed, but with the MO smacking of Constantine and the victim’s connections to the mob, she finds it hard to be objective. Still, she’s doing her best to consider all the evidence.
When she receives a threatening letter from Constantine, however, her suspicions are confirmed. And he’s made it abundantly clear that not only does he plan to finish what he started but he has her family and loved ones in the crosshairs, too. Madison vows to do whatever it takes to save them, but as the hours race by, the body count rises. And the stakes only get higher when Madison’s sister, Chelsea, goes missing.
Now, Madison’s only play is to take Chelsea’s disappearance for what it really means: Constantine is calling Madison out for one final showdown. And they won’t both survive…

An excellent novel based around a fraudulent scheme and the real beauty of the book is the real capture of human emotions around the good old formula of trust.
As the main character has moved to start her life afresh, being a newbie in a close community she struggles with her conscious on whether to follow her heart or her head. The psyche portrayed by all the characters shows that the author has a deep understanding of what makes humans tick and the means they will go to achieve their own pursuits. With this in mind, as the plot unfolds, you as a reader are left guessing as to what path and who the heroine will turn to in the end.
Having read other Joyce Strand books I always think it is courageous of an author to create new story lines and characters away from those who have been so popular. In this she does not disappoint, a well written page turning novel with twists and turns with an attachment to human emotions make for a very good read indeed. Having short chapters gives the reader plenty of time to contemplate what is happening.
The strong message of this book is that in blind faith in those you trust can leave you in a position of desperation. Follow your instincts and not your heart.
An interesting read for any lover of thrillers and being tested mentally.

Will her cat ruin her Christmas chance for love?
Bella Tallahan has always hidden behind her twin sister, Tally. She was born with cerebral palsy and even though she has finished college, she lives vicariously through her sister’s adventures.
It worked, until her sister married writer Lucky Lenigan, and Bella developed a crush on Lucky’s brother—a bad boy with a shady past.
Chance Martin made one mistake growing up—one that landed him in prison. After his release, he spends his days restoring antique furniture and his nights alone.
When Mr. Klutz, Bella’s fat tabby cat, wreaks havoc in the furniture workshop, Chance confronts Bella and finds himself with a dilemma. He’s not the right kind of guy for a woman with disabilities, but at the same time, he can’t get her out of his mind.
Will the trail of destruction left by one naughty cat bring Bella her Christmas chance for love? Can Chance rise above his past and convince Bella that she is truly worth loving? Or will the secret he is keeping horrify Bella enough to send her back into hiding?
Author’s Note: Although part of the Christmas Creek Romance Series, Her Christmas Chance is a complete and standalone story. Bella Tallahan appears in a previous story, Lucky in Laguna, where her sister Tally Tallahan meets and falls in love with Lucky Lenigan.

Christmas in Paradise by Deborah Brown (Florida Keys Mystery Series Book 13)
My name is Madison Westin. Unless it’s Christmas, in which case my official title is “Holiday Cheermistress.” Nothing stops me from getting my ho-ho-ho on, not even my friends’ Grinch-worthy attitude toward sparkling tinsel, twinkling lights, and tinkling bells.
Hey, if Creole, Fab, and Didier wind up with coal in their stockings, it won’t be my fault.
When some bah-humbug bandit makes the rounds of Tarpon Cove, Fab and I are on the case. It’s the least we can do for our loyal friends. Seasonal crime-victim disorder seems to be on the rise.
Some guy in a Santa suit—well, the top half of one anyway—is robbing local banks. The cops are fingering the wrong guy. And you can bet your light-up Rudolph boxers that if we can’t track the real thief down, one of my merry band of miscreants could be spending the holidays behind bars.
The Paradise series, are Florida Keys mysteries, “great as stand-alone reads, but they're like chips...you won't be able to devour just one!”
"Tis the season for Santas and rum. Included are stories about a woman attracting Mall Santa, reindeer enhanced golfcart races andd perhaps a copy-cat Santa bank robber? Madison, Fab and friends are right in the middle of everything as usual. A fast paced holiday read. You might find some romance between the jobs, too. Madison and Fab are the best of best friends, with vibes of Cagney and Lacey, Rizzoli and Isles, and Frankie and Grace." reviews Laura S Reading
"There are so many other aspects of Christmas thrown into this book. The subplot around the department store Santa is hysterical. The family traditions are very believeable. Get yourself in the holiday spirit and pick up a copy of Christmas in Paradise." - reviews Nicki's Nook

✯✯ First-in-Series FREEBIE ✯✯
When tragedy strikes, best friends turn to insatiable lovers…But harsh realities may tear them apart.
Also available in paperback:
IN CATCHING CASSIDY…
Wyatt Armstrong never imagined that instead of celebrating his college graduation, he and his twin sister would be dealing with the death of their parents. Then again, Wyatt had never been one to think past tomorrow. He heads to their summer home in Harborside, Massachusetts, with his best friend Cassidy Lowell in tow, to deal with his parents’ death and to try to figure out his next step.
Six foot two, infuriatingly handsome, and flirtatious, Wyatt Armstrong has always been there for Cassidy, helping her pass her classes and fend off unwanted advances, while driving her insane with his one-night stands–but that’s what best friends are for, isn’t it? Having each other’s backs. There was never any doubt that she would accompany him to his family’s summer home–but she never expected to begin seeing Wyatt as more than a friend. Or has she been ignoring her feelings all along?
It’s impossible to ignore the sizzling heat between them as Wyatt and Cassidy get even closer, but Cassidy knows Wyatt’s past, and she has a real job to begin in the fall. Wyatt may be a sure thing for the summer, but Cassidy needs more. For the first time in his life, Wyatt is forced to look toward the future if he doesn’t want to lose the one woman who’s shared his past and owns his heart.
Harborside Nights is a sexy, hot, and evocatively real contemporary romance series featuring a group of friends who have known one another for years as “summer” friends, and come together after college to build their lives. They’re tough, edgy, and accepting–most of the time.
Catching Cassidy is told in first person POV and written in the loving, raw, and emotional voice readers have come to love by New York Times bestseller Melissa Foster.
A smile trembled over her lips. “As sure as I can be.”
“Bridgette.” Her name fell like a prayer as he lowered his mouth to hers, kissing her until that tremble disappeared and she went soft against him. “Do we need to hurry?”
She shook her head. “He never wakes up.”
“What’s our plan if he does? What if we’re in the middle of making love and he comes in?”
She smiled and touched her forehead to his chest. “Thanks for that visual.”
He tipped her chin up. “I promised never to hurt either of you. We need a plan, babe.”
“Let’s go with not freaking out, and hope for the best.”
From ONLY FOR YOU (rel Dec 5)

Please Explain Terrorism To Me: A Story for Children, P-E-A-R-L-S of Wisdom for Their Parents by Dr. Laurie Zelinger and Ann Israeli
"The sections that the children will read (or be read to or with) is done beautifully. The illustrations are really good and the story line really mirrors what a child's life is like. It is written so a child will totally understand most of it--that is where the parents come in. To explain and clarify any questions which might come up. The advice given to parents on how to deal with explaining terrorists and terrorism is in my opinion--spot on.
Unfortunately, terrorism is a fact of modern life and as much as we would like to it is almost impossible to shield kids from everything. It is on the news non stop-on radio-on social media-in their classrooms. They are going to find out one way or another and we as adults have to try and explain what and why so as to hopefully alleviate some of their fears." reviews Miki's Hope
"With the current climate the world is in and "acts of terrorism" dominating the news it is hard to keep it from the eyes of my inquisitive children, and if I am honest I was finding it hard to explain it all to them, I mean how do you explain it in way to help make them understand without completely scaring them?
This book sets out to do just that. It almost set in two parts - the first part being the story of a boy who catches something on the television about explosions, people dying, and terrorists, to which his mother quickly turns it off, we then see the boy begin to catch more mentions of the incident on the tv, social media and people talking, and he begins to have nightmares. He eventually asks his mom what it is all about, and she sits him down and explains to him. The story is told from a child's perspective and is set alongside colourful illustrations, that were engaging and my kids loved them, it made it a fun but serious read for them." reviews E Book Addicts

A Story for Children, P-E-A-R-L-S of Wisdom for their Parents
Complemented by exquisite, colorful artwork, Dr. Zelinger skillfully crafts an easily relatable children's story using everyday situations, around the oppressive concept of Terrorism in the news. With masterful understanding of the child's world, new and frightening concepts are introduced carefully and gently, with the child's perspective in mind. Dr. Zelinger provides parent coaching to further the dialogue in her P-E-A-R-L-S of Wisdom section (Prepare, Explain, Answer, Reassure, Listen, Safeguard) where caregivers are given scripts to guide them, as well room for individuality. This pioneer book helps children and parents face a critical, often avoided topic with reassurance and calm.
"This book provides the 'PEARLS' of wisdom for parents and children to discuss a scary topic like terrorism in ways that promote healthy and authentic parent-child conversations that yield to mutual respect and bonding."
--Marc A. Brackett, PhD., Director, Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence
"Deep and yet accessible, her remarkable deciphering of the psychological factors that hinder the free communication between parents and children on terrorism is compelling. This fascinating guide amounts to a riveting lesson of clarity and to a masterpiece in bridging the unbridgeable."
--Hon. Yehuda Lancry, Former Ambassador of Israel to the U.N.
"Please Explain 'Terrorism' to Me is a straightforward and down-to-earth treatment of a difficult subject. Dr. Zelinger uses common sense, a simple clarification of the basic issues, and reassurance to provide a deeper understanding of terrorism for kids--without a corresponding rise in anxiety."
--Thomas W. Phelan, Ph.D., Psychologist/Author
