Book Review: On the Run

On the Run is the newest book in Traci Hunter Abramson's Guardian series. The back copy sounded good, so even though I missed a few books in the series, I thought I'd pick this one up. I wasn't too lost, though I probably would have enjoyed some character appearances more if I'd read previous stories. 

Elle Jameson is in the middle of a big story that points to a big conspiracy and when the people she reaches out to are killed or missing, she goes on the run. Nolan is a new "guardian" and gets assigned to help her. Nolan is earnest and tries his best to protect Elle, but the people after them are relentless. I thought the plot had plenty of layers and the secondary cast added a nice depth to the story. There are chase scenes and fight scenes, and all the tension you would expect from a Traci Hunter Abramson book. It was clear that Ms. Abramson had recently visited the countries that the story is set in and was eager to fill in details that she'd personally experienced. I thought Elle and Nolan were a root-worthy couple and was really hoping they'd live to get that happily-ever-after. The reader also gets a villain's point-of-view which can make the stakes that much higher. At the end of the day, I thought Elle was smart and believable and Nolan was sweet and persistent---a well-matched couple. Abramson fans will have a hard time putting this one down!

Here's the back copy:

As one of the top investigative journalists in the nation, Elle Jameson has a knack for uncovering the truth. So when a promising lead points to corruption on a German military base, Elle anticipates a straightforward assignment. But then she stumbles upon a deadly conspiracy beyond anything she’s faced before, and her scrutiny does not go unnoticed. She knows too much, and she can’t be allowed to live. With no idea where to turn for help, she does the only thing she can: she runs.

The guardians, an elite team of undercover agents, have one job: safeguard those under their protection. As a new guardian, Nolan has just received his first solo assignment to help a young woman who just survived an assassination attempt. Within minutes of making contact with the beautiful journalist, however, their location is discovered. Thus begins a game of cat and mouse spanning the globe as the two work to stay ahead of a determined assassin. Nolan fights to buy Elle time to complete her investigation, and what she discovers is a plot that threatens the very fabric of America. In a desperate race against evil, Nolan and Elle are the only ones who can prevent global catastrophe.

A Free Book Collection for Spooky Story Fans!

Need some deliciously spooky romances to read before Halloween? The All Hallows' Eve novella collection is free today! 

Get your free copy here

Here's the back copy:

In Sarah M. Eden’s mysterious novella OF GHOSTS AND GARDENS, if Enid Pryce has one downfall, it’s that she talks to the ghost in her garden, which doesn’t make her too popular among society’s elite. In fact, she returns to her home in Wales after a Season in Bath with not one offer of marriage. Deeming herself a failure at the nearly-spinster age of nineteen, she is pleasantly surprised when an English gentleman shows up in her garden, apparently intent on finding out more about the ghost. Burke Kennard, grandson of an English marquess, quickly becomes utterly charmed by the young Welsh woman, but the ghost in the garden is more likely to push them apart than pull them together.

In Annette Lyon’s enthralling story IT’S YOU, when Charlie and Anna both see the ghost of Nanny Mae, they think they’re losing their minds. Anna tries to find out more about the ghost and uncovers a decades’ old family secret. One that separated two people in love. Now, the ghost of Nanny Mae must set her wrongs to right. As Charlie and Anna explore the past, and the truth of what happened, they discover that the mistakes of the past might lead to love of the future.

In SOPHIA’S CURSE, a suspenseful novella by Heather B. Moore, Joan grows up in an abbey in France, believing that she is an orphan. A chance encounter with the foreboding owner of a neighboring estate, alters everything she’s understood about her parents. She discovers she’s an integral part of changing a decades-old curse, and that her life, as well as the handsome and intriguing Simon Rousseau’s life, are both in danger unless she makes an enormous sacrifice that will change the course of her dreams.

In Lisa Mangum’s haunting story THE SIRENS’ SONG, we meet recently widowed Oliver, the lead physician on a luxury cruise liner traveling to Greece. He hopes that the change of scenery will help ease his grief over his deceased wife, Cate. After falling overboard, though, he is captured by a siren and taken to a mystical island. Through the sirens' song, Oliver is able to relive his memories of Cate—both the good and the bad—as long as he gives away his memories of her. But can he sacrifice his best memory in exchange for one last chance to say good-bye?

In Jordan McCollum’s thrilling novella THE MAN OF HER DREAMS, homicide detective Alexandra Steen dreams about real murders before they happen, seeing the crime through the eyes of the killers. But the dreams never contain enough clues to save the victim before it's too late. Then one dream ends before a murder occurs—in a place she knows. She finds herself racing against time to prevent the deadly act, only to discover that the intended victim is a man she thought she’d never see again. Seven years might have passed since her breakup with Nick, but the years haven’t changed her feelings for him. Now, she must convince Nick that her dreams are real and find a way to prevent his death.

In Elana Johnson’s chilling story THE GHOST OF MILLHOUSE MANSION, Naomi knows her crush on Colt Jennings is unreasonable. When he invites her to his reclusive mansion to restore an old wooden rocking horse, Naomi can’t resist accepting the job. The more time Naomi spends touring his home, the more interested she becomes in Colt. Until she sees a man in the library who vanishes into thin air. She thinks she’s losing her mind until Colt tells her about the ghosts he’s been seeing for years.

Book Spotlight and Giveaway!

There is a new book out called Eve's Warriors. You can read the first chapter HERE

Don't forget to scroll down and enter the giveaway!

This is a book from a father/daughter writing team, Curt and Alisha Burnett, who recently released a novel entitled “Eve’s Warriors.” The new work is available as an e-book, audio book or print version at or you can get your copy from Amazon HERE

Described by the authors as a Twilight-like love story, the plot focuses on a young, mortal woman falling in love with an ageless, immortal man – in this case one of the three Nephites from the Book of Mormon to whom Christ granted immortality.

“This book was written not only to tell an entertaining and uplifting love story, but more than anything to help women understand their strength and power as daughters of Eve, what I call their ‘Eve-ness’,” said co-author Curt Burnett. “As a daughter of Eve, every woman has the potential for greatness and plays an active role in the battle against Satan and his influence.” To promote the new book, the authors are providing the first chapter of the e-book at no charge. Proceeds from purchases of the whole book will be donated to research for the fight against glioblastoma – a rare brain cancer. Mr. Burnett’s wife passed away after a battle against glioblastoma in December 2019.

“Throughout the novel, readers will be introduced to women of faith from throughout history, including Joan of Arc, Florence Nightingale and Harriet Tubman,” said Alisha Burnett-Worthington, co-author of “Eve’s Warriors.” “Each of these incredible women attributed their great achievements to the being inspired by God, and I truly believe that every woman can receive that same inspiration.”

The World Lost a Bright Light

Sometimes, in our busy, chaotic world, it's hard to reach out to people and truly connect with them. Collin Kartchner was someone who made it his life's mission to help people put down their phones and connect with others. To give eight second hugs. To be present with your family. To not let social media run your life. He spoke all over the country (and even in Canada) with that message and touched thousands of people.

Collin was also our neighbor and he was a friend. Our family has so many good memories of him. Stopping by the kids' lemonade stand and giving them $20 for a "great cup of lemonade," or asking one of the boys to be his sidekick for a Primary talent show, or just stopping to chat and tell a joke to make us laugh. He had so much energy and light and he freely shared that with everyone around him. When we found out yesterday that he'd passed away suddenly, so many fun memories were shared and so many tears were shed. Collin Kartchner was a man who loved his family, his God, and his fellow man and he was never afraid to show that. We are the richer for having known him.

He will be very missed. 

If you haven't watched his TED Talk, I highly recommend it. You can see it here

The Best Day for a Young Reader!

My little guy is a big reader and his new favorite book at the moment is The Lost Wonderland Diaries by J. Scott Savage. He's already read it once and is re-reading it now because he loved it so much. 

Well, yesterday, J. Scott Savage himself came to our house to make a special delivery (safely, of course, with a mask and social distancing) and brought over a poster, a Wonderland card, a signed bookplate, artwork, and a bookmark, and was totally the highlight of my son's birthday. 

Thank you so much for caring about your young readers, Jeff, and for writing great books!

I Need Some Opinions

Okay, you guys, I need some opinions. Our family went on a little getaway this weekend, and while we were driving, a Christmas story for Colt and Brenna came to me. So, for those of you who have read my books, do any of you remember who Colt and Brenna are? 

I'm hesitant to write their Christmas story because they were main characters from a few books ago. Would anyone even remember them? But maybe I should just go ahead and write it, because the story is cute. Sigh. I can't decide. What do you think?

"This story opens with a suspenseful, captivating edge that lasts throughout the whole book, leaving the reader eagerly turning page after page . .." --InD'Tale Magazine.

Book Review: Otherwise Engaged

Joanna Barker's new book, Otherwise Engaged, is out and it is so good! I really enjoyed this one.

Rebecca Rowley is a quiet rebel to the society that has so many restrictions for women. She rides bareback and is secretly engaged! It's all so exciting---until she meets her new neighbor. Lieutenant Nicholas Avery. He has moved in next door with his half-sister and they both are quite vexing---and fascinating at the same time. Nicholas and Rebecca form a friendship, but she is soon drawn to him as more than a friend. But should she explore her feelings for Nicholas or go on with the man she's already---and maybe a bit hastily---promised her hand in marriage to?

I loved everything about this book. The descriptions, the characters, and the setting worked seamlessly together to highlight this tender tale of love. Nicholas is a sigh-worthy hero who has his faults, but is working so hard to do what he thinks is right---no matter what the cost. Rebecca is making all sorts of mistakes with her life, but finds a true friend in Nicholas. Their journey to love was such a page-turner for me. I really enjoyed seeing them find admirable traits in the other person and have their opinions change. The secondary cast was also well-drawn and added to the main story with all their foibles and perspectives. This one is definitely going on my keeper shelf!

Here is the back copy:

Constantly stifled by the rules of Society, spirited Rebecca Rowley enjoys finding ways to quietly—or not so quietly—rebel. But riding bareback and avoiding nosy neighbors are nothing compared to the thrilling secret she is keeping from her family.

When Rebecca’s quick thinking saves the life of a young girl, she unwittingly attracts the attention of the child’s dashing brother, Lieutenant Nicholas Avery. As that attention turns flirtatious, Rebecca is forced to tell him the truth: she is secretly engaged—to the one man her family would never approve of. Fortunately, Lieutenant Avery is a navy man with no wish to marry, or so they both assume as they enter into a friendship. Rebecca hopes to change her family’s mind about her betrothed, but the more she comes to know the handsome lieutenant, the more she wonders if she promised her hand too hastily.

After all her carefully laid plans are shattered during a family crisis, Rebecca must force her heart to decide. Should she stay true to the promise she made or fight for the future she’s only just begun to imagine?

What is Your Favorite Season?

Fall is my favorite season of the year. I love the crisp air and snuggling up with a book and a blanket on my porch swing. It's just so perfect! 

But if you had to pick just one of these, which one would you pick? (I know, I know, they're all great, but you can only pick one.)

Book Review: When A Stranger Watches

Kathy Oram Peterson's new mystery, A Stranger Watches, is full of twist and turns as well as a slow-burn romance. Perfect for snuggling up with on a cold day.

As with every good mystery, we see the murder first, but not who the murderer is. Poor Kyra's father has been estranged from his daughter and is on his way to make amends. But before he can leave, he's murdered. But who did the deed?

Kyra Fletcher hasn't heard from her father in too long. He sent a strange birthday card, but she knows something is wrong, so she travels to see him with her dog Boo. Almost from the moment she arrives, strange things are happening. Her dad's almost ex-wife is acting threatening toward Kyra---more so than just "stepmother" issues. Even her dad's lawyer seems unhappy about her arrival. Sheriff Shane McQuire steps in to help, but he's got a problem teenaged daughter of his own to deal with. But as their investigation goes deeper, Kyra and everyone she's come to care about are in danger. Can they figure out who the killer is before Kyra becomes the next victim?

I thought this was a well-done mystery and I didn't guess the killer until right before it was revealed. There were some really great red herrings! I really thought it was one character and was surprised that it wasn't. The small town was easy to imagine and the characters were memorable. At times the pacing was slow and the chemistry between the hero and heroine just wasn't there, (the hero was in law enforcement years ago and saved the heroine when she was a young girl at a youth camp, which sort of made it seem like he was much, much older than her which was hard for me romance-wise) but I did like the ending and how our hero and heroine dealt with the danger. I was glad the heroine was smart and didn't make questionable decisions. It made the mystery that much better. I great "spooky" read for October!

Here's the back copy:

Something is wrong. Despite the fact that Kyra Fletcher hasn’t seen her estranged father in five years, the peculiar birthday card he sends in the mail is out of character—and alarming.

Determined to put her mind at ease and mend their relationship in person, Kyra travels to her father’s Wyoming lodge. She finds it well kept but vacant, and according to the people in town, her father has been gone for months. Kyra is certain something has happened to him and turns to local Sheriff Shane McQuire for help. As the pair works together to investigate her father’s whereabouts, Kyra finds herself becoming more and more comfortable with the town—and its sheriff. But she is unaware of one deadly detail: someone is watching her, and as she draws ever closer to the answers she seeks, that person will do anything to ensure her silence.

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!

I'm so excited for today! It's Canadian Thanksgiving and as a Canadian living in the United States, our family is so lucky to get TWO Thanksgivings! I can't wait to have all of my family around the dinner table today. 

And I'm so grateful for the blessings I've been given. It's been a difficult year for everyone, and when I look back, I can see the moments where my family drew closer together and things we previously took for granted are definitely seen in a different light. 

And I'm so grateful for all of you that support and encourage me in my writing. I love that I get to do what I love.

I hope you all have a wonderful day!

A Lesson Learned the Hard Way

Things have been a bit crazy for me lately. A few days ago, I was at my desk working, when all of the sudden my screen went black. I wasn't that worried and pressed the button to reboot. When I couldn't get anything to work, I called in my husband and my son who are computer experts. And then I started to wonder when the last time I backed up my computer was. 

All my books. All my current work-in-progress. My pictures. Everything. Had I backed it all up? That's when I started to worry. 

But I had faith in my husband and son so I cleaned the whole house while I waited for the verdict. (I'm a stress cleaner). The news was grim. I'm not really that tech-savvy, but everything they said sounded bad. Corrupted files. Something about the hard drive. Scary stuff like that. The takeaway was my computer as it had been was dead. Kaput. But maybe they could still get some files off of it from the last backup. 


They worked late that night and my sweet husband stayed up until two in the morning trying valiantly to get back what he could, then got up at six the next morning to keep trying. By noon that day my computer was running again, but I'd lost some files. Not everything. It wasn't catastrophic, but I've spent every moment since then trying to recreate the lost files. It's been stressful, but I'm finally feeling like I am where I was before the crash. And I'm so very grateful that I had backed up the important stuff and I have a sweet husband and son who worked so hard to get it all back for me. I am ready for a restful weekend!

Book Review: Forget Me Not

As you all know, I am a big Sarah Eden fan and I was thrilled that she is doing a story on the Jonquil parents. And Forget Me Not  knocked it out of the park!

Julia Cummings starts out the story as a young, headstrong girl who knows what she wants out of life. But a series of huge losses changes her. Lucas Jonquil is sure nothing could ever be the same when his best friend and two siblings pass away. He vows he'll live the life they never got to---but that means leaving his childhood home and his friend Julia behind. He doesn't look back for many years and when he finally returns home, Julia has changed. She's definitely not happy to see him. But an unexpected betrothal and marriage between the two of them makes everything worse. Lucas is faced with a decision that will have long-lasting consequences. He must find some common ground with his new wife or live a life of misery. But can he win Julia's love or has the battle been lost before it's begun?

I really enjoyed the twists and turns of this love story. Julia has been dealt a harsh hand and her heart is wounded. Lucas unknowingly was part of that wounding and has much to make up for. He's woefully bad at trying to woo his wife and calls on his friends, the "Gents" for help. It was such a sweet group of men who seemed so different, but would do anything for the members of their group. And the "help" Lucas received from them was pretty funny at times. I thought the book had some quite realistic emotional ups and downs, some tender moments that keep the reader hoping, and a sweet ending that will make you sigh with happiness. Hopefully this is a start to a new series with all the Gent stories in them. If so, I am eagerly awaiting the next book!

Here's the back copy:

Nottinghamshire, 1785

Julia Cummings has long been acquainted with loss-her mother, her brother, her sister, her friend, all gone too soon. But the loss that pushed her grief to the limit as a young girl was that of her best friend, Lucas Jonquil, who abandoned her without looking back. Now, eight years later, Lucas has returned to Lampton Park, and Julia has steeled herself-she will never forgive the man who broke her heart.

After losing too many of his friends and family to early deaths, Lucas vowed to live life to the fullest. And after traversing the world, he has returned from his adventures to find his family and home as he left them-except for Julia. The little girl he left behind has blossomed into a captivating lady, a lady who makes it clear she despises him. With little hope of reconciliation, the former friends are blindsided when their parents make a shocking announcement. Lucas and Julia have been betrothed without their knowledge and are to marry immediately. Now Lucas must rely on the help of his closest friends to win the heart of a lady who loathes him-a lady he’s coming to love more deeply every day.

For fans of swoony heroes and strong heroines, read the first three books in the bestselling Veterans Club series now.

The Marquess Meets His Match (Veterans Club #1)

"An incredibly satisfying read . . . highly recommend" ---Readers' Favorite ★★★★★

"The swoon is strong with this one . . ."---Katie's Clean Book Collection

A traitor with a deadly plan. Two agents sent to expose his identity before he strikes. But danger is closer than they think . . .

Lord Christian Wolverton―known as Wolf in a covert group operating during the war against Napoleon―has been called home from his military duties. For the moment, his family responsibilities require him to suspend his more clandestine activities. But information falls into his hands that a traitor will soon try to tip the scales back into French favor and Christian doesn't have much time to stop it from happening.

Going to the one person who can help him, the powerful Duke of Huntingdon, Christian comes face to face with Lady Alice. She's a beautiful member of the ton with a very big secret―she's also a trained agent and already on the case. Forced to partner with her to lure the traitor out of hiding, Christian wants to quickly close the case himself, before Lady Alice is more closely involved. But Lady Alice has ideas of her own and she's going to prove her theories correct―with or without him.

Danger is closer than they think, however, and it's a race against time to expose the traitor's identity before British lives are endangered. Both Christian and Alice have strong opinions on who he is, but which one will be proven right?

The Viscount's Vow

A man changed by war. The woman who loves him. And a secret that could tear them apart.

Edward Rutledge, the newly minted Viscount Carlisle, has come back from war a changed man. The echo of the battlefield and the death of his best friend Marcus haunt him to the point that he decides to break his betrothal to Charlotte---the only woman he’s ever loved.

When he’s summoned home to Hartwell Manor, he comes face-to-face with her. Slowly, her strength and love make him see that he might be able to reclaim what he thought was lost. But when word reaches him that Marcus might not have died in Spain and yet lives, Edward will do anything to bring his friend home. As the mystery deepens, however, Edward is drawn into an intrigue that forces him to confront the demons that have plagued him since he returned to England. Will he have to sacrifice everything he’s built with Charlotte in order to keep her safe?

The Highlander's Hidden Heart

A duke's daughter. A Highland warrior. And a love worth fighting for.

Lady Elizabeth, daughter of the Duke of Barrington, has done her best to secure an advantageous match, but a shy nature, combined with a stutter, hasn't helped her cause. After two Seasons, her father won’t wait any longer and promises her to a man she despises. There doesn’t seem to be anything Elizabeth can do beyond wish for a freedom she’ll never have---until a charming Highlander appears and makes all her dreams of a love match seem within her reach.

Alec Ramsay unexpectedly inherits an earldom and must leave his beloved Scottish Highlands to present himself in London and settle the estate affairs. After meeting his new neighbor, Lady Elizabeth, he feels a connection to her that he’s never felt with any other woman. Alec makes every effort to further their acquaintance, but soon finds out that Elizabeth could be swept out of his reach before they have a chance to explore the feelings between them. With everything at stake, can he risk all for a chance at love−−before it’s too late?

After two Seasons, her father won’t wait any longer and promises her to a man she despises. There doesn’t seem to be anything Elizabeth can do beyond wish for a freedom she’ll never have---until a charming Highlander appears and makes all her dreams of a love match seem within her reach.

Alec Ramsay unexpectedly inherits an earldom and must leave his beloved Scottish Highlands to present himself in London and settle the estate affairs. After meeting his new neighbor, Lady Elizabeth, he feels a connection to her that he’s never felt with any other woman. Alec makes every effort to further their acquaintance, but soon finds out that Elizabeth could be swept out of his reach before they have a chance to explore the feelings between them. With everything at stake, can he risk all for a chance at love−−before it’s too late?

**Originally a novella in the Timeless Romance collection, now a full-length novel with new twists, turns, and romance!

Here is the back copy for Snatching the Catcher:

Grizz is about to break all of the rules for something he never imagined he would be risking . . . His heart.

Rachel Bennett has spent her entire life reaching for her dreams to dance professionally, and has come close enough that she’s content with where she is. Enter Grizz McCarthy, one of her brother’s best friends and a member of the beloved Belltown Six Pack. Ranked as one of the hottest pro athletes of the year, Rachel finds there is so much more to Grizz than that, and soon he has her reaching for more.

Rachel should be off limits for David “Grizz” McCarthy. That’s a universally accepted fact, courtesy of his bond with his brothers in the Six Pack. But the more time he spends with Rachel, the less he cares about that fact, and what it could do to his friendships.

And back copy for Return to Sender:

He never wanted to leave her. She never expected him to return.

If Ariana Stanton has learned anything in life, it's that men leave. She's been taught this lesson well from the father she's never met, who sends her a mysterious letter once a year, to her ex-fiancé, who left her for another woman. So, when she meets the charming and seemingly perfect Jonah, she promises him they will never be more than friends. It's a promise she can't keep. But before he has a chance to leave her, she sends him away.

Dr. Jonah Adkinson has one regret--that he let Ariana remain convinced that love never lasts. But now, nine years later, the single dad is back in Pine Falls and on a mission: prove Ariana wrong. He's determined to win over the love of his life. And this time he won't let anything get in the way, not even her.

Now, not only does Ariana have to face the man she's still in love with, but she must confront the mystery of her father's letters, forcing her to reevaluate the past and her choices. But will it be enough to make her believe that, unlike the letter she's always returned, Jonah is hers to keep?
