Love Under the Stars Book Review and Giveaway


1861, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 

Inspired by the true story of John and Phoebe Brashear who developed telescopes and lenses that are still in use today, Love Under the Stars brings the beginnings of their journey to life. Set against the steel mills of Pittsburgh, a young man has a mind for astronomy and physics, the gifted hands of a millwright, and the heart of a minister. Conflicted about which life path to take, he is further confounded when the love of his life shows up teaching Sunday school in the classroom next to his. 

Phoebe Stewart is headstrong, responsible, and meticulous about her role as baker and cook in her family's household. Despite her whip-smart mind, she understands that she will live a single woman's life with her family and revels in the caring and feeding fourteen household members. Then she meets John Brashear. He opens her eyes to a universe of heavenly bodies, a world of possibility beyond the walls of her home. 

Torn between the love growing between the two and Phoebe's devotion to her family, they navigate a path to where they can announce their plans to marry and buy a little home up on the South Side Slopes. It all seems to make sense… until it doesn’t. Can John and Phoebe fulfill their obligations while being true to their hearts? Can they make their dreams come true? 

My thoughts:

This is such a sweet, family centered novella! John works a bunch of part time jobs, in the mill, the church, and helping as needed. Yet his true passion is in the stars. He loves astronomy and loves sharing his knowledge with others. He's also the epitome of family man, who sends nearly all of his earnings back to his parents to help support them.

Phoebe is the rock in her family, doing the majority of the household chores for the huge number of people packed in her house. Yet she too has a very scientific mind, keeping careful track of her recipe adjustments and how things turned out in her kitchen book.

John and Phoebe meet in an unusual manner, and as their relationship develops the challenges continue. John can't support his parents and his own family, and Phoebe's family is dependent on her to keep the house running. As more of Phoebe's siblings marry and move away her father becomes more and more vocal that she will never leave the house.

Do these two have a chance to be together? Or are there just too many challenges to make it work?

This was a wonderful story and gave such an interesting glimpse into the time period!

What We Bury Book Review

 What We Bury by Carolyn Arnold

 

She’s dying, and she knows it. If only she can stay alive long enough to leave one last message. As the rain beats against the metal roof, she uses her blood-soaked fingertip to scrawl on the floorboards... The letters GB.

Detective Madison Knight has been house hunting, but a call from her real estate agent has nothing to do with finding the perfect property. She’s found a woman’s body, stabbed multiple times. Madison arrives on scene and is presented with an unknown Jane Doe and two letters written in blood. There’s no murder weapon, and it seems Doe was attacked somewhere else.

As Madison works to find justice for the victim, Madison’s own life is put at risk. What she comes to discover is some people will go to extreme lengths to protect their secrets—even as far as murder. But will learning that lesson come too late for her?

 

My thoughts: 

Detective Madison Knight seems to have it all, a career that she loves, a wonderful boyfriend and dog, and a partner who knows all her quirks. But looks can be deceiving, as her health is in question, her relationship is up in the air, and she has quite a few secrets of her own.

But when she gets a call from her realtor about a dead body on a property, she discovers a Jane Doe with a message writted in blood. Can Madison and Terry solve the case before the problems in her private life boil over?

This is a fast paced, intense book that gives us a better understanding of Madison than we have had in past books. A great addition to the series, but this book can be read as a standalone (although you'll want to go back and read them anyways!)

I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.

The Gritty Truth Book Review and Giveaway


A fun, sexy, and emotionally riveting new standalone romance by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. THE GRITTY TRUTH is the perfect love story for those who enjoy fiercely loyal and insanely sexy alpha heroes, smart, sassy heroines, strong family bonds, bikers, babies, and more! 

Recovering drug addict Quincy Gritt has fought his demons. He’s confessed to his crimes and conquered his addictions. He’s finally ready to go after sweet, sexy Roni, the gorgeous brunette who won a date with him in a charity auction five months ago and has been putting him off, and driving him wild, ever since. 

Dancer Veronica “Roni” Wescott worked hard to escape the seedy area where she was raised and followed her dreams to Julliard, only to have them shattered in the blink of an eye. She fought hard and regained her footing, but then the rug was pulled out from under her again when the grandmother who raised her passed away, leaving Roni feeling adrift in a world she knows very little about outside of dance. And then there's Charlie Hunnam–lookalike Quincy Gritt—the man whose late-night texts pulled her through her grief and have been setting her heart aflutter for months. 

Quincy pulls out all the stops, determined to prove that their friendship is only the beginning of what’s destined to be so much more. Romantic nights lead to smoldering passion and a deep connection too strong to be denied. But when Quincy’s past comes back to haunt him, can he and Roni accept their new gritty truth, or will Quincy spiral back into the darkness and lose the future he fought so hard to have?
The Whiskeys are perfect beach reads with depth of story, strong family ties, and a wealth of emotions. Small town love stories with happily ever afters guaranteed.

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**
 
My thoughts:
 
I know that I say this a lot, but Quincy and Roni are my new favorite! These two people come from very dark pasts. Roni grew up on the wrong side of town and spent her life working towards her dream of dancing, only to have it taken away in the blink of an eye. Quincy had an even rougher childhood and is a recovering drug addict who is working every day to make a better life.
 
Quincy and Roni have been texting and flirting for months, but neither are quite ready to make the first move, as they both have sides of themselves that they're not ready to share. Quincy is sweet and loving and amazing with the Whiskeys, his new family group. Roni is a wonderful teacher with a couple of close friends, who quickly joins the Whiskey extended family also.
 
But when their pasts collide with the present, can their relationship survive? Quincy represents so much of what Roni has been hiding from through her life, so can they make a future together? Or are they doomed to live separate lives because of their past?

In TAMING MY WHISKEY… 
Being the princess of the Dark Knights motorcycle club doesn’t come with a white knight or a fairy-tale castle, and that’s okay, because Dixie Whiskey has never needed a man to slay her dragons or make her whole. Even so, after watching each of her brothers fall in love, she’d sure like a shot at her own happily ever after. But with the Dark Knights watching over her and the only man she’s ever wanted out of reach, she’s not holding her breath.

As the launch of Silver-Stone Cycles’ biggest line approaches, Jace Stone is left needing a favor from the one woman who holds the power to take him to his knees.

But Jace is determined, and he pulls out all the stops—sending Dixie’s overprotective brothers up in arms. Rebellious Dixie takes a stand—going after the freedom, and the man, she’s always wanted. One scorching kiss leads to an undeniable connection, but Jace isn't looking to be tied down, and Dixie refuses to play second fiddle. Can two untamable hearts find forever love in each other’s arms?

A Flair for Goblins Book Review and Giveaway


NEW RELEASE....
When Sadie Kramer agrees to help decorate for San Francisco’s high- society Halloween Spooktacular, she expects to find whimsical ghosts, skeletons, and jack-o-lanterns when she shows up at the Wainwright Mansion, not a body. Especially not the body of the woman in charge of the charity event. 

With two detectives, a paranormal investigator turned television star, and a cauldron full of Wainwright Foundation staff and family members cackling around her, Sadie and her sidekick Yorkie are determined to find out who the killer is. Will an old superstition help lead to the truth? Or will this simply become one more tale in the mansion’s haunted history? 

*Recipe for Butterfinger Krispie Bars included!
 
My thoughts:
 
This is a fun Halloween spooky story, with more than a few twists! Sadie and her pup are at it again, this time finding a body while helping to set up for a Halloween gala. But with detectives from two precincts shooing her away can Sadie help figure out who the killer is?

Suspects abound, and the possibility of a ghost or goblin killing people is enough to shake even the steadiest of nerves! Sadie's curiosity may get the better of her this time, but is it a human or a supernatural being who caused it?

This is a fantastic, fun story with a combination of new and beloved characters. This book can be read as a standalone, but I recommend sitting for a spell and enjoy Sadie and Coco's other adventures!

"Deborah Garner is gifted at bringing each character to life. She adds details seamlessly, making it seem like you know these people. She presents scenarios that have you thinking you know who did it, and then in the next sentence you are second guessing yourself. And that is to say, this is a great “who done it” … it gets 2 thumbs up from me :)" 

"I loved the quirky charm of Sadie, for she is loveable, -nosey in a fun way- and has the ability of building a rapport with all the weird and wonderful characters on the resort. She is has a knack of finding clues as she goes about her day to day business." 

"Deborah Garner is a wonderful, fun author who can deliver a story that you will want to read to the end and the characters are witty, entertaining and a lot of fun."

Deadly Weapon Book Review and Giveaway


In Alaska, a lethal threat is unearthed from the frozen ground. Near Maui, a shipwrecked submarine holds a frightening secret, and on the California coast, war veteran Jake Wolfe races against time to uncover a conspiracy. 

When a master plan emerges that has the potential not only to threaten Jake’s city, but to kill off targeted populations around the world, Jake embarks on a desperate search-and-destroy mission in order to protect the lives of everyone he knows and cares for. His target? A group of rogue operatives planning mass murder.

My thoughts:

Jake and Cody are out to save the world yet again! Jake Wolf is a former Marine who has been working secretly for the government for quite some time. His dog Cody is a former war dog who hasn't completely adjusted to being a civilian, and he works alongside Jake on his missions.

This particular situation hits a little close to home, especially in the middle of a global pandemic. Jake is sent to Alaska to stop an evil group from releasing an old pathogen into the world and killing millions. 

Cody and Jake travel from Alaska, Hawaii and the California Coast in order to try to prevent the tragic loss. There's diving into sunken subs, jumping out of helicopters, and dodging grenades shot from drones. This is an action packed, nonstop adventure book, with wonderful sides of friendship and love.

Attorney by day, assassin by night.  Jake Wolfe is a young lawyer who leads a secret life. Trained by the CIA, he now wants peace and quiet, practicing law and living on a boat with his war dog.

Book 4: San Diego Dead
Danger awaits Marine-turned-lawyer Jake Wolfe on his vacation to sunny San Diego and Cabo San Lucas. There he finds sugary white sand beaches, warm turquoise water, boat trips among gray whales, and … cold blooded murder. 

It was meant to be a relaxing holiday for Jake and his adopted war dog, Cody, but violence erupts when he crosses paths with a criminal cartel urgently seeking to reclaim a deadly package.

Jake learns the missing item is a threat to US citizens and vows to stop the cartel from possessing it, no matter what vigilante justice actions he might have to take.

Time is running out and thousands of innocent lives are at risk. Will the two combat veterans be able to retrieve the dangerous item before the killers do? The clock is ticking, but Jake hopes that if anybody can help find the package, it has to be his highly-trained and ultra-intelligent dog, Cody.
