Whispers at Seaside Book Review and Giveaway



Whispers at Seaside (Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers Book 10) by [Cole, Addison ]
NEW RELEASE........ 

Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers features a group of fun, flirty, and emotional friends who gather each summer at their Cape Cod cottages. They're sassy, flawed, and so easy to relate to, you'll be begging to enter their circle of friends! All books can be read as stand-alone novels.

Whispers at Seaside by Addison Cole is the sweet edition of New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster's steamy romance novel Seaside Whispers. The stories and characters remain the same and convey all of the passion you expect between two people in love, without any explicit scenes or harsh language.

In Whispers at SEASIDE… 
Having a mad crush on her boss’s son, Matt Lacroux—an intriguing mix of proper gentleman and flirtatious bad boy—is probably not the smartest idea for single mother Mira Savage. Especially when the company, and her job, is already on shaky ground. But as a Princeton professor, Matt’s life is hours away from Mira’s home on Cape Cod, keeping him safely in the fantasy-only zone. And as a single mother to six-year-old Hagen, with a floundering company to save, fantasies are all she has time for.

With hopes of becoming dean off the table, and too many months of longing for a woman who lived too far away to pursue, Matt’s publishing contract couldn’t have come at a better time. He heads home to Cape Cod on a brief sabbatical, intent on starting his book, and finally getting his arms around sweet, beautiful Mira.


A surprise encounter leads to midnight confessions. The more time Matt and Mira spend together, the deeper their relationship grows, and the love and attention Matt showers on Hagen is more than she has ever dreamed of. But Matt’s sabbatical is only temporary, and Mira’s not saving his father’s company so she can leave it behind. Will their whispers of love be enough for one of them to change their life forever?


My thoughts:

Matt and Mira have been circling each other for months, both of them interested. However, their lives are at drastically different points. Matt is on a steady climb at work and has a new book deal. Mira is a single mom who has finally found a home for herself and her son Hagen. They're miles away from each other, both literally and figuratively.

Matt takes a sabbatical from his life in academia in order to write his book and to spend time with family. He's also hoping to spend some time with Mira, knowing that his time on the Cape is limited.

Mira is very interested in Matt, but Hagen is her biggest priority. There is nothing and no one that will change that, so she is very skittish about putting their hearts on the line. The sparks between them is so strong that they truly don't have a choice in the matter.

Can they meet in the middle and make a family? Or will they fall apart, unable to be together?

AT Any Cost Book Review and Giveaway

NEW RELEASE....
The slayings are cold-blooded… 

…but it's deceit that has Alex staring at the face of death. 

Alex goes off the books to try to stop a group that has re-defined modern-day terrorism. Extortion, bombings, and assassinations have created fear inside and outside of the beltway -- all while being nearly invisible.

Alex has no choice but to pull in Ozzie -- they only find more death. A young woman with so much hope…two bullets in the back of her head. How does she connect to all the other deaths in cities across the world?

Alex can only see one common thread: a blood-thirsty quest to obtain control. And that control will kill hundreds of thousands to pad the pockets of the group's leadership.

Shots fly. Alex and Ozzie try to escape death. But how do all the pieces fit together? They can't. Not unless there's a betrayal that will turn Alex's world upside down -- just before she's shot in the face.

You think you'll identify the Judas. But no one can predict how treacherous the mind becomes.

Is this the last day of Alex's life?


My thoughts:

AT Any Cost continues Alex and Ozzie's story from the past several novels. Alex is the main narrator, but a good chunk of the book is told from Ozzie's point of view.

Alex and Ozzie are continuing to hunt down the massive terrorist group behind multiple events, but because of circumstances they're forced to do it off-book, without the approval of the FBI or any of their resources.

Investigating what should be a straightforward murder turns into a harrowing tale, which puts Alex in a situation that she can't escape from. Will Alex's kids be orphans? Will Ozzie ever be able to move home and begin to mourn his wife's death?

This book is an amazing addition to the series and will keep you guessing with all of the twists and turns.

The Scoop 
By now you're probably aware that the Alex Troutt thrillers, Ivy Nash thrillers, and the Ozzie Novak thrillers are all under the same Redemption Thriller Series umbrella. Why? Because, ultimately, they all connect -- Alex, Ivy, Ozzie. How? That's part of the mystery that I'm slowly unveiling throughout the Redemption Thriller Series.

Through each sub-series, characters from different books appear in the other novels. If it adds suspense, intrigue, or even a good laugh, I've included a cross-over character -- it's a lot more fun that way. Plus -- and here's the real kicker -- the final six novels will bring all of the major characters together -- Alex, Ivy, Ozzie. It will be explosive and gut-wrenching…in a way that will leave you breathless.

About the Author
Amazon #1 Bestselling Author, #2 bestselling author on Barnes and Noble, and a Readers' Favorite Gold Medal winner.

John W. Mefford has been writing his debut novel since he first entered the work force almost thirty years ago, although he never put words on paper until 2009. Once he started writing, however, he couldn't stop. Many readers ask John from where he gets his ideas. Well, he's a veteran of the corporate rat-race, a former journalist, and he's always been an astute observer of human and social behavior. On top of that, he's really good at embellishing.

A member of International Thriller Writers, John writes novels full of electrifying suspense -- the same types of books he has loved to read since before he could shave.

When he’s not writing, he chases his youth on bike or a basketball court, all while making mental notes of people and societies across the land.

Crazy Fox Ranch Book Review and Giveaway


Crazy Fox Ranch by [Garner, Deborah]
NEW RELEASE....

When NY reporter Paige MacKenzie leaves Manhattan for Jackson Hole, she has only two things on her mind: enjoy life with Wyoming's breathtaking Grand Tetons as the backdrop, and spend more time with handsome cowboy Jake Norris as he prepares to open his guest ranch.


As Paige begins to settle in, a stranger's odd behavior leads her to research western filming in the area - in particular, the movie, Shane. Will digging into Hollywood's movie connection with Jackson Hole simply lead to a freelance article for the Manhattan Post, or will it lead to a dangerous hidden secret?


My thoughts:
Paige has made a name for herself as a reporter focusing on Western towns, but every time that Paige goes somewhere she falls into a mystery. She has recently quit her job and moved to Wyoming to be close to Jake, her previously long distance boyfriend.

Paige soon discovers that a man is continuously trying to purchase Jake's property, and something is digging holes all over his property (and all over the area). Can Paige discover who or what is creating the holes before something happens to her or Jake?

I really enjoyed this book, and loved continuing Paige's story! I hope that by staying in one place she still has many mysteries in her future!

First Crush, Last Love Book Review and Giveaway


First Crush, Last Love by [McKenna, Elizabeth] Back in high school, Lee Archer had the power to make Jessie Baxter's cheeks flush and her heart race. But the popular athlete never wanted to be more than just friends. Ten years later, after a failed marriage and with her journalism career on shaky ground, Jessie's come home for her high school reunion--and Lee still has the power to make her knees weak and her pulse pound.

Lee's teenage years were filled with more trauma and drama than anyone guessed. Though his damaged past has helped make him a successful police detective, it's hurt every relationship he's tried. But seeing the grown-up, stunning Jessie might just change his commitment-phobic mind.

Jessie's psycho ex-husband had her convinced no one would ever love her, but Lee is ready to step out of the friend zone and into her heart. Can she learn to trust again before she loses her chance to turn her first crush into her last love?

Elizabeth McKenna's novel will have you remembering the angst of high school, the grief of a failed relationship, and the joy of finding true love at last.

My thoughts:

This story is an amazing, wonderful story through the lives of Jessie and Lee. Jessie had a crush on Lee, and although the two were friends nothing became of it. Life moves on, and you follow their stories as they continue through their life.

At their 10 years reunion they meet up again, and their feelings are still strong. But can they get through their past to possibly have a future?

This story is in three parts, high school, after high school, and at the reunion. I absolutely adore following their lives through more than 10 years, watching them grow up and change, watching their lives grow and spread into the world.

This was my favorite thing about the book, and I wanted to keep reading their story when the book was over!

"Elizabeth McKenna has a way of making the characters so real."

"This is a truly beautiful story of hope, love and a second chance at firswondt love again."

"The author infused lots of life into the characters, which in turn made the storyline come alive."

About the author
Elizabeth McKenna
Though Elizabeth McKenna's love of books reaches back to her childhood, she had never read romance novels until one Christmas when her sister gave her the latest bestseller by Nora Roberts. She was hooked from page one (actually, she admits it was the first love scene).

She had always wanted to write fiction, so she combined her love of history, romance and a happy ending to write Cera's Place and Venice in the Moonlight. Her short story, The Gypsy Casts a Spell, is available for free on her website here. She hopes you will enjoy her first contemporary romance novel, First Crush Last Love, as much as others have enjoyed her historical romances.

Elizabeth, aka Maureen Lippert, lives in Wisconsin with her understanding husband, two beautiful daughters, and a sassy Labrador. When she isn't writing, working, or being a mom, she's sleeping.

Lovers at Seaside Book Review and Giveaway

Lovers at Seaside (Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers Book 9) by [Cole, Addison]
NEW RELEASE........ 

Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers features a group of fun, flirty, and emotional friends who gather each summer at their Cape Cod cottages. They're sassy, flawed, and so easy to relate to, you'll be begging to enter their circle of friends! All books can be read as stand-alone novels.

In Lovers at SEASIDE… 
After months of long-distance communication, actress Parker Collins and artist Grayson Lacroux finally plan to reconnect in the seaside town of Wellfleet, Massachusetts. But Parker never shows, and weeks pass without a word, leaving Grayson to believe he’s misinterpreted their budding relationship.

Parker has been running on autopilot ever since she lost her friend, mentor, and the only family she’s ever known, Bert Stein. Armed with junk food, tequila, and her big, lovable dog, she’s prepared to hole up and mourn—and determined to mend a fence Bert had never been able to with his estranged and bitter brother. But Parker didn’t count on the handsome artist she’s been fantasizing about for nearly a year walking in on her grief-induced drunken night.

When Grayson stumbles across Parker, he has no idea what to make of the gorgeous blonde who blew him off despite the chemistry between them. But that doesn’t stop him from feeling protective of the woman who’s consumed his thoughts for months, and when he learns of Parker’s plans to confront an angry old man, he refuses to leave her side. As Parker’s past unfolds, they’re led on an unexpected journey of discovery. Their connection deepens, until good intentions spark painful secrets, threatening the love they’ve found.


My thoughts:

Grayson and Parker are total opposites, he's a metal artist and she's a famous actress. Grayson has a strong, loving family and Parker is an orphan who grew up in foster care. Grayson works for Parker's foundation creating beautiful art for their many locations, while Parker does great work for children.

Grayson shows up at the Foundation's house to discover a very different Parker than the woman he's been working with for a year. Parker has lost the man she sees as a father, and without a support system she's spiraling into her grief and loss. Can Grayson help pull her out of the hole that she's in?

Grayson and Parker have been emailing back and forth for a long time, each of them having intimate thoughts about the other. But with their lives being so different, and so far away from each other, can they make a relationship work?
