Book Description

Can a crabby puppy perform cupid's magic this Christmas season? 

Wheelchair bound, Amelia Lloyd is embarrassed when the neighbour calls the police to deal with her out-of-control brother. Her old dog tries to protect her but it takes the combined efforts of a handsome police Sergeant and a crabby puppy to put a stop to her sibling’s shenanigans. At first, she hates to be caught in such a situation. But then she accepts an important truth. The big-hearted man, her savior, wouldn’t have come into her life otherwise. 

Sergeant Harley Carlton is exhausted from dealing with a car accident where everyone is killed except for the darling cherub who decides she’s his daddy. How can a man with a heart as big as his, correct the precious little orphan? Within a few hours, he gets a call to save a blonde-haired beauty from her crazy brother. So how can a man fall in love twice in one night? 


Book Review


This is the third book in the series and tells us the tale of the last puppy left in the box. Unlike his adventurous sister and hungry brother, Grumpy is not interested in anyone but his mistress. He wants to go back home and when he manages to get out of the cardboard box, that's exactly where he heads. We finally meet Amelia and her step brother Jimmy who is responsible for abandoning the puppies.

Jimmy is at a difficult and cranky stage of his own life and is making things really difficult for his loving and caring elder sister. He's just about lost control of his anger and is about to hurt her or her old dog Belle when the cop bursts in through their front door.

Harley is the support that Amelia needs, and while he is already reeling from one tragedy at the hospital, he's more than happy to be helpful to Amelia. I love the way that things come together for the family after all the twists and turns in the story. The enthusiasm for the pup that the baby girl shows is so cute! All in all a really nice heart warming finish to the series!

Book Review

The last thing Alexis Robles expects when she returns from her annual holiday is to find her one night stand at her workplace. Noah Spencer may have not known who she was when they play acted as Princess Belle and Prince Adam, but he was extremely pleased to know that she was in charge of the stock car racing company that he wanted to invest in.

He's got his work cut out trying to convince Alexis that he can be a decent driver for the second team that he wants her company to set up. So he's not exactly pushing for the something more that he wants from her on a personal level. The two of them do need to work well together for the team to have any chance at salvation. 

Its a nice take on a contemporary romance and the characters do not act over the top or dramatic. The situations are all totally believable and yes the too much tabloid does make you feel sorry for her.

Make Me a Match: Baby, Baby\The Matchmaker Wore Skates\Suddenly Sophie

Book Description

Three bachelors turned…matchmakers? 

One special night with Cooper Hamilton gave Nora Perry a precious gift. But no way is the sweet-talking salesman the right guy for her…or is he? 

Former pro athlete Ty Porter could get burned when he falls for the beautiful reporter who ruined his career—and could now expose his most zealously guarded secret! 

Gideon Walker has a long history with free-spirited flower shop owner Sophie Jennings. But when the banker-matchmaker fixes her up with potential candidates, he realizes he's made a terrible mistake…

Book Review

This is a set of three novellas written by three different authors about a set of three friends in K-Bay Alaska and how each of them finds love. Coop is surprised when Nora tracks him down with a baby in tow and claims that it is his. While he is stunned, being the certified bachelor that he is, the little bundle of joy makes him want things that he has never thought about before. All the time he is trying to match up six couples in their hometown to get a job in the Lower 48 from their ex high school hockey coach.

Ty was the local hockey star who was supposed to have been the ticket out of town for the three friends, but a self inflicted accident caused the dream to crash. A crash which was recorded in excruciating details by former girlfriend Kelsey. Now she is back in town to cover their crazy match making business and he's pulling back hoping that she doesn't take away the last of his secrets to make her new headlines.

Gideon is just about ready to run out of town and being its staid banker is not making him feel any better. The matchmaking bet is about to give him a great chance to get out of K-Bay and he's bound to its success. However when Sophie asks to be matched up with someone, there is no way he feels that he can give her to someone else in town. How is he ever going to let her go to someone else when he realizes just how deeply his heart is involved.

Awesome set of stories. Really enjoyed the creative way the three authors have brought the town and characters alive. Well worth reading.

Book Review


Emerald and Diamond are twins who have been brought up by Pop, after their parents died in gunfire when they were children. The twins have new identities to protect them and their policeman father's partner as surrogate parent to bring them up. When they are involved in an accident Pop is wheelchair bound with a shot at recovery only with experimental and expensive surgery. That's when Emerald, or Esme as she is now known decides to take up MMA fights to make up the surgery money. When Graham sees ER Jones the female MMA fighter in action, he is drawn to her enough to want to break many of his own self imposed rules. The story has depth, the description of the underbelly of LA is very good, and the characters themselves seldom disappoint. Another great read from master story crafter Mel Curtis.

I Bring the Fire Part I : Wolves (A Loki Series)

Book Description


In the middle of America, Amy Lewis is on her way to her grandma's house. She's being chased by a very bad wolf. Galaxies away Loki is waking up in a prison cell, strangely without a hangover, and with no idea what he's done wrong -- this time anyway. But he does know Thor is hiding something, Odin is up to something wicked, and there seems to be something he's forgotten...

In this urban fantasy tale that is equal parts "Dresden Files" and "American Gods," a very nice midwestern girl and a jaded, mischievous Loki must join forces to outwit gods, elves, magic sniffing cats, and nosy neighbors. If Loki can remember exactly what he's forgotten and Amy can convince him not to be too distracted by Earthly gadgets, Earthly pleasures, or three day benders, they just might pull it off...

This first installment of I Bring the Fire is for anyone who suspects chaos and mischief makers might have their own redeeming qualities, and anyone who just wants a good fantasy romp through modern Earth, ancient Asgard, and beyond!

Book Review

I'm not very well versed in the Norse mythology legends, but enjoy reading about them all the same. In this case I only knew Loki as the mischief making god behind the mask in the movies by the same name. However the author has managed to give him a beautiful, in depth character.

Bringing him into the modern world and introducing the girl who's gotten into trouble through no fault of her own is fun. Its a good read with interesting twists and turns in the plot. The writing is fast paced and keeps things interesting. I particularly enjoyed the rainbow bridge sequence. Am planning to read the rest of the series. Will keep you posted about how I find the remaining books.

The Christmas Catch (Holiday Brides Series Book 1)

Book Description

Sometimes the best gifts are unexpected...
  
Since the death of her military husband two years ago, single mom Christine White has struggled to get by. By throwing herself into her work as a Chicago copywriter, she's managed to keep food on the table but has gradually lost sight of what really matters, like building a bond with her four-year-old son. When Christine's best friend insists she spend Christmas in Vermont so she can get her life in order, Christine initially resists. Little does she know she's in for a memorable holiday that will reignite her faith and reawaken her heart.

Bachelor professor John Steadman has given up on finding the right one. Spending time with his friends while keeping up with his job seems satisfying enough. Then one day close to Christmas, a beautiful woman from Chicago nearly runs him off the road during a snowstorm. What's more, she's got a kid in her car. It's only natural that John and his trusty golden retriever want to help drag them out of a ditch and steer them toward their destination. What John doesn't expect is that soon he'll be hoping Christine and her son will be staying in Vermont - for more than just a little while.

Book Review 

Christine is so busy trying to provide for her son Tyler, that she almost begins to disconnect from him. Her boss and currently only friend gifts her a holiday in the form of house sitting a cabin in another city. It seems like a good idea for her to recharge her batteries and Christine takes up the offer. On the way the sudden snow storm almost leaves them stranded when the vehicle skids off road. That's when John rescues them and becomes their "guardian angel".

The chance meeting would have been easy for her to forget, but then they bump into each other again at the market and talk some more. They discover they are from the same college and although both feel the attraction, they decide that this is not the time in their lives that they need to bring in the complication of a love interest. Fate of course, has other plans. The characters are lovable and the story beautifully narrated. By the end you are rooting for them to get together already! Nice, fun read.

Somewhere Along the Way (The Andrades, Book 4)

Book Description

Luke Andrade: 
Wealthy, talented, fiercely loyal. He’s the glue that holds his family together, but every man has a breaking point. When he heads to Ohio to attend a funeral, he does so with the intention of taking time off to clear his head. The very last thing he expects to do is meet a woman. 

Cassie Daiver: 
Scarred, but not broken. She’s recreating herself in a small town far away from her painful childhood. 

He’s angry with the world and himself. She finally has something she’s afraid to lose. They couldn’t have met at a worse time. 

Luke and Cassie are about to discover love often happens somewhere along the way, and usually, when one least expects it. 

Book Review


Of all the Andrade brothers I have always found that I identified most with Luke, the peacemaker. The story of his love is different from the opulent billionaire settings of his brothers and works really well for him. The way the brothers bond over the series is brought out beautifully in this book, as is Luke's hesitation to involve Cassie in his life and troubles.

Author Ruth Cardello takes the mundane and makes it magical once again. Its a great book to be swept away with romance and fold your laundry with. :) Yes its not great literature or a classic book, but it helps bring a smile to your face during your busy day. I would love to see Gigi join her brothers on the island in her home. I guess that's the next book.

The Gatekeeper's Sons (The Gatekeeper's Saga Book 1)

Book Description

Fifteen-year-old Therese watches her parents die. While in a coma, she meets the twin sons of Hades—Hypnos (the god of sleep) and Thanatos (the god of death). She thinks she's manipulating a dream, not kissing the god of death and totally rocking his world. 

Than makes a deal with Hades and goes as a mortal to the Upperworld to try and win Therese's heart, but not all the gods are happy. Some give her gifts. Others try to kill her. 

The deal requires Therese to avenge the death of her parents. With the help of Than’s fierce and exotic sisters, the Furies, she finds herself in an arena face to face with the murderer, and only one will survive.


 Book Review

If you liked Percy Jackson, you are going to love the Gatekeeper's Saga. It a great book about a Lucid Dreamer, Therese. The whole concept of being so close to death, and then being smuggled away back to life is very interesting. I liked the story line and look forward to seeing how the characters develop. It deals with a number of strong human emotions, and some of those of the young looking Greek God's as well. One can hardly be called young when one is blessed with eternal life, anyhow I digress. Loved the book, if you enjoy mythology related fiction you are going to love this fantasy.

Saving Wishes (The Wishes Series Book 1)

Book Description


For Charli Blake, being seventeen is a tough gig. 
She's been branded a troublemaker, her reputation is in tatters and she's stuck in Pipers Cove, a speck of a town on the coast of Tasmania. 
Thankfully, it's temporary. Her lifelong dream of travelling the world is just months away from becoming reality. All she has to do is ride out the last few months of high school, which is easier said than done thanks to a trio of mean girls known as The Beautifuls. 
When Adam Décarie arrives in town, all the way from New York, life takes an unexpected turn. His arrival sets off a chain of events that alters her life forever, convincing her of one thing. Fate brought him to her. 
Saving Wishes is the story of a girl who doesn't quite fit the life she's living, and the boy who helps her realise why. 


Book Review



Charli believes that she has an absolutely boring existence in a small town in southern Australia. All that changes when Adam comes to town to visit his cousin. With her belief in fate and Adam's unshakable conviction that something drew him there, can Charli take a chance on love?

Adam has never done anything impulsive in his life before ditching his friends on their way to Europe and coming to visit his cousin in Pipers Cove. The picture postcard somehow compelled him to come and visit the spot. Then he discovers that Charli took that photo...

There's a lot of ups and downs in the life of Charli that the book brings out. Its interesting reading, although not quite as clichéd as a regular small town romance. Read the first book as it was free, don't know if I'm inclined to read the second in the series.

The Ghost Next Door (A Love Story) (Romantic Ghost Stories Book 1)

Book Description

When destiny takes a hand...
You've got to hold on tight.

When single mom Elizabeth Jennings gets sent to a new town to revamp its weekly paper, she resists. Her daughter Claire is just fifteen, and has recently started high school. But Elizabeth's boss insists, so the two pack up and move to the tiny Virginia town, which isn't even on most maps. Their luck goes from bad to worse when they discover the house Elizabeth rented online cozies up to an abandoned house. When creepy things start occurring next door, Elizabeth's glad to have the small-town sheriff in their corner. Nathan Thorpe is not just a stand-up guy they can trust, he's cool to have around when things go bump in the night. Elizabeth also learns he's good at holding her tight. And, when she's wrapped in his arms, she becomes afraid of more than ghostly happenings. She fears she's losing her heart.

Like most folks in Blayton, Nathan Thorpe is here for a reason. Only, he didn't fully understand what that reason was until a stunning brunette and her daughter came to town. Nathan's immediately drawn to Elizabeth and feels motivated to protect her and Claire, believing that means shielding them from nonsensical small-town lore. With Halloween approaching, there are rumors swirling about concerning the old Fenton place located across the street from the graveyard, and next to the newer home occupied by the Jennings. Nathan's a calm thinker who can find a rational explanation for almost anything. Yet there are deeper mysteries in Blayton than Nathan can explain. When he learns the truth, will he still be able to hold onto the woman he loves?


Book Review

Having read a number of other books by Ginny I was a little surprised at the paranormal element, but totally enjoyed it.

Elizabeth is a woman on a mission - make the little weekly newspaper come alive and make a good life for her teenaged daughter and herself in the new town. When things get a little spooky, Nathan, the town sheriff steps in to help.

While Nathan is happy to be the one to keep the town safe, he'd rather keep his heart safer in Elizabeth's hands. He wants them to like the town and stay. Not leave like his sister Bella and niece Melody, but there are secrets around that may just drive the mother daughter duo away.

Definitely worth a read.

A Course in Weight Loss: 21 Spiritual Lessons for Surrendering Your Weight Forever

Book Description

If you are plagued by compulsive patterns of unwise eating, then this book is for you. In A Course in Weight Loss, best-selling author Marianne Williamson addresses the causal root of your weight-loss issues: a place within you where you have subconsciously forgotten your divine perfection. This forgetfulness has confused not only your mind but also your body, making you reach for that which cannot sustain you . . . and reject that which does. As your mind reclaims its spiritual intelligence, your body reclaims its natural intelligence as well. The 21 lessons in this book take you on a deep, sacred journey. One step at a time, you learn to shift your relationship with yourself—and your body—from one of fear to one of love. And you will begin to integrate the various parts of yourself—mind, body, and spirit—to become, once again, and in all ways, the beautiful and peaceful person you were created to be. 

Book Review

This was a book on weight loss that did not ask you to exercise in a certain manner , eat a specific set of foods or even think yourself thin. It simply asked you to surrender your fear thinking and come from a loving space. It asks you to detoxify yourself in a spiritual manner and connect with Divine Wisdom.

The idea may seem a little radical to those die hard exercise fanatics and diet watchers, but it has some merit. Of course the mental attitude towards your weight needs to be adjusted, but some physical action is also a must. After all we are a combination of our physical bodies and our metaphysical soul, so both aspects need to be addressed for any sustainable weight loss.

Max Andrade: 
Rich, bold, unapologetic. He is a man who doesn’t hear the word no—until he meets Tara. In his obsession to have her, he’ll offer her anything—except his heart. 

Tara Holmes: 
Outspoken, hardworking, levelheaded. She makes her living by exposing unfaithful spouses. She doesn’t believe in love, especially not with a man who sees her as nothing more than a challenge. 

When Madison D’Argenson hires Tara to uncover the truth about Aunt Patrice, Tara is pulled into Max’s world. How far would you go to help a man who doesn’t want to be helped? And how long would you give yourself over to the pleasure of his touch if you knew it would end as soon as he discovered your lie? 

Book Review

After Gio and Nick its Max's turn to find love. Maddy is so keen on finding out more about who she can match him up with that she decides to hire a private investigator to find out what secret is keeping him away from his family. What she doesn't realize is that bringing Tara and Max together is already a winner for her wager.

Max does not like the drama associated with his family and prefers to make his own way in the world. He is detached from humanity in general and getting set to develop an island resort when his cousin Maddy bursts in to his life with Tara in tow. Looking like something right out of his dreams, Tara seems as uncomfortable at being thrown at Max as he is to see her. Unfortunately for both of them the chemistry is just off the shelves.

Its a nice little sequel to the series so far. Very predictable, but just what you need to read when in the mood for a romantic escape into your book world.

The Laws of the Spirit World

Book Description

ON FEBRUARY 22, 1980, KHORSHED AND RUMI BHAVNAGRI’S WORLD WAS SHATTERED. ONE MONTH LATER, A NEW ONE OPENED.

Khorshed and Rumi Bhavnagri lost their sons, Vispi and Ratoo, in a tragic car crash. With both their sons gone, the couple felt they would not survive for long. They had lost all faith in God until a miraculous message from the Spirit World gave them hope and sent them on an incredible journey.

Book Review

The book is written by a process called Automatic Writing where the writer is given guidance from a spirit to write messages that are relevant to them. This book is Vispi and Ratoo's gift to their parents and the world written on Earth by Khorshed. It speaks of the seven realms of the spirit world where we end up guided by our subconscious mind. It tells us about our true purpose in life, the training, testing and growth that we are here to experience. There are a number of illustrative stories in the first part and spiritual discourses in the second half. If you are interested in spirituality, it will make for interesting reading even if you do not agree with concepts as explained in the book.
