The Librarian who Shoots a Gun

Thursday, July 28th, 2016

Banner-3

Synopsis:
Audrey Scott is more upset for her jilted cousin than for the best man who supposedly disappeared and caused the cancellation of the wedding. That is, until the cops come around looking for him on suspicion of murder. When that very same best man, Foster McGuire, ends up bleeding in Audrey’s closet, she has no choice but to try and get him off the hook for a crime he didn’t commit.

Too bad there’s too many people, from an irritating homicide detective who’s way too attractive for Audrey’s own good, right to mob bosses, who don’t want to see Foster McGuire tell his story. Audrey is no detective. In fact, she’s a children’s librarian. However, there’s always room for some good old investigation work between story times, and she’s going to use the skills she knows to follow a trail that starts with murder and ends with betrayal, with a whole lot of guns in between.

My Review:

The Librarian Shoots a Gun an Audrey Scott Mystery by Amber Gilchrist is an investigation tale full of surprises and some humor. You will find diverse and interesting characters throughout the story. The Librarian Shoots a Gun is a murder mystery that will provide you a few hours in a world full of conspiracy and real life. It is a clean, delightful mystery solved by a small but very intelligent woman.

Audrey is a Librarian in charge of the program for kids in her home town of Tulsa, Oklahoma. She is more than thirty and not yet married. Her cousin is getting married and the family decides to introduce her to the best man. The problem starts when he disappears from earth and is being hunted by the police for murder. The wedding is off, and the investigating policemen thinks that she knows where the guy is hiding. Since she has never seen the guy, she gets put out by the policemen and their suggestions. When the best man enters her room in the middle of the night, Audrey defends her five foot body with all she has, and breaks his nose. It is after this incident that she realizes that the best man doesn’t have anyone else he knows in Tulsa, and that he really wants her to help him. She starts her own investigation to prove the best man innocence, and gets entangled with the mafia, dead people and crooked policemen, but the most dangerous part is when her heart decides to fall for the wrong man.

The Librarian Shoots a Gun is not a romance, so don’t expect a happy ending, but you will get all the mysteries resolved. It is great reading for even a Young Adult although it is meant as an adult mystery. You can’t go wrong with this story.

My review:

A Gateway to Hope by Author E.C. Jackson is a beautiful story about a Christian girl that is to quiet for anyone to noticed, including her family. One day she does something out of character for her and leave town for two weeks with out telling her family before hand. Why you wonder? She is going to become engage with the guy she is in-love with to help him get his position back in his father dominion business. It all work perfectly until the get back to town and his other girlfriends try to get him back.

This book is about faith in Gods plans for us and open mind to fallow his ways. The main character is a religious girl and small passages in the bible are quoted in a few place throughout the story. Even so there isn’t a lot of preaching in this book just a pleasant remainder of how we can have a better life if we listen to God and let Him help us.

A gate away to hope is a nice pace story that will help you feel great and you will be rotting for both main characters. It has great moral values that need to be share more often in romances. This is a simple and clean romance tale for all to enjoy without reserve. A gate away to hope by 00000 is a great reading material and a well-done book. Happy readings.

My Pineapples Went to Houston- Heartbreak, Humor and Hope

Sunday, July 24th, 2016

The Book Synopsis:
“Heartbreak, Humor and, ultimately, Hope

That’s the message that comes through loud and clear in My Pineapples Went to Houston, Lee Gaitan’s personal and powerful tale of surviving a decade of relentless chaos and loss. The “shock and awfulness” began in 2002 when her father died, her mother teetered on the brink of a coma and her husband of 22 years secretly lost all their money and ran off with a stripper. And it was all downhill from there!

Then one day in the midst of all the chaos—somewhere between loud cursing and crying—she recalled an amusing anecdote she’d heard about pineapples that spoke to her circumstances in such an unexpectedly humorous way that she couldn’t help but laugh out loud. “That moment of laughter was a small epiphany for me. I realized that I had allowed my sense of humor, which had always mitigated the bad breaks in my life and enhanced the good ones, to fall victim to the machete my ex-husband had taken to my life. I determined right then and there that I could no longer permit that. I instinctively knew that humor was the most potent, and just about the only, protection I had at my disposal to survive the crises unfolding around me, and I vowed to keep it alive.”

Told with honesty and insight—and, of course, humor—My Pineapples Went to Houston both inspires and entertains readers and offers hope and encouragement to those struggling with their own “plans gone outrageously awry.”

cover

The author:

Lee Gaitan is a wife, mother, teacher, author and speaker, but above all she is passionately committed to overcoming life’s obstacles, surviving sometimes by the skin of her teeth, but always with humor and optimism. She shares her experience with anyone who will listen with the intent to encourage others to use humor to their benefit.

In the past twelve years Lee has had to deal with more than a healthy helping of “are you kidding me?” moments. In 2002, she hit rock bottom. It was so bad shelovingly refers to it as a year of “shock and awfulness.” That year her father died,her mother was in the hospital, semi-comatose from grief, and her husband of 22 years lost every penny of their money BEFORE running off to Arizona with his girlfriend, who just happened to be a former stripper.
That was just the beginning. She spent the next decade struggling with loss and challenges on every front, from finances and family to health and career.

The Suspect’s Daughter…

Saturday, July 23rd, 2016

 

Summer Banner-2

 

Donna Hatch, author of the best-selling “Rogue Hearts Series,” has won writing awards such as The Golden Quill and the International Digital Award. A hopeless romantic and adventurer at heart, she is a sought-after workshop presenter, and juggles multiple volunteer positions and her six children. A native of Arizona who recently transplanted to the Pacific Northwest, she and her husband of over twenty years are living proof that there really is a happily ever after.

 

Author-3
Q&A With the Author:

  1. What inspired your book?

The murder plot in The Suspect’s Daughter was inspired by a true event in England known as the Cato Street Conspiracy, which thankfully, was averted largely in part due to an undercover Bow Street Runner. This event happened in 1820, the same year my book takes place. When I read of the Cato Street Conspiracy, I knew it had to be Grant’s story. Obviously I took some creative license, but the suspense plot in my book strongly parallels the real one. As far as the romantic plot, Grant is so emotionally closed off, as readers of my other books already know, that I knew it would be fun to pair him with a spunky, vivacious, glass-half-full kind of girl who is emotionally strong enough to not only challenge him and match him wit for wit, but with a big enough heart to see through his defensive barriers into the lonely, vulnerable man hiding underneath.

  1. How do you spend your free time?

Free time? I don’t think I have ever had any free time. I’m not even sure what that means. When I’m too mentally or emotionally tired to write, and if my family doesn’t need me for anything pressing, I read. Reading recharges me in a way that nothing else can. I enjoy going for long walks, watching old movies–especially adaptations of Jane Austen novels and romantic comedies–and playing games with my family. I’ve become pretty good at ping pong (table tennis) and my husband is a ruthless opponent.

The Book:

TheSuspectsDaughter_432 (1)

“Determined to help her father with his political career, Jocelyn sets aside dreams of love. When she meets the handsome and mysterious Grant Amesbury, her dreams reawaken. But his secrets put her family in peril.

Grant goes undercover to capture conspirators avowed to murder the prime minister, but his only suspect is the father of a courageous lady who is growing increasingly hard to ignore. He can’t allow Jocelyn to distract him from the case, nor will he taint her with his war-darkened soul. She seems to see past the barriers surrounding his heart, which makes her all the more dangerous to his vow of remaining forever alone. Jocelyn will do anything to clear her father’s name, even if that means working with Grant. Time is running out. The future of England hangs in the balance…and so does their love.”

I like cats–kittens are even more fun.
  • I am a harpist and I teach harp lessons.
  • Every morning after I get the children off to school, I go for a walk. (At least, that’s always the goal)
  • I hate spiders. HATE. With a passion.
  • Due to moves in my childhood, I attended 9 different schools. Being the new kid isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
  • I love cheesecake just as much as I love chocolate–chocolate cheesecake is even better. Caramel is a close second. Caramel-chocolate cheesecake, anyone?
  • Currently I’m juggling: a YA dystopian aka speculative fiction, a YA historical paranormal, book 4 of my Rogue Hearts Regency series, and a new Regency trilogy.
  • I am majorly claustrophobic, which is exactly why, when I had to give my super-warrior weapons master, Kai Darkwood in my fantasy Queen in Exile, some flaw or fear, I chose claustrophobia for his–I understand it.
  • I love to ballroom dance. LOVE.
  • I also love bodies of water of any kind–ocean, river, lake, stream, waterfall, backyard garden pond. It just does something for my soul. This is partly why we recently moved from the desert to Washington State. I even love water when it’s falling from the sky. Mermaid, anyone?

Guinevere: On the Eve of Legend by Author Cheryl Carpinello

Friday, July 22nd, 2016
I am retired high school English teacher. A devourer of books growing up, my profession introduced me to writings and authors from times long past. Through my studies and teaching, I fell in love with the Ancient and Medieval Worlds. Now, I hope to inspire young readers and those Young-at-Heart to read more through my Quest Books set in these worlds.

I also conduct Medieval/Short Story Writing Workshops in Elementary/Middle School classes. Contact me if you are interested in holding a workshop for students: ccarpinello@mac.com.


Q&A With the Author:

1.  What
inspired your book?
My former students were my inspiration. When I taught
the Legend of King Arthur, my students knew next to nothing about Guinevere
other than she married King Arthur, cheated on him, and caused the downfall of
Camelot. I wanted kids to see a more rounded character of a young girl not much
different from them.
2. How do you
spend your free time

 

 

I enjoy spending time with my family, reading,
watching my favorite movies, and being outside. When I have an extended period
of time, we travel. Two of our biggest trips have been to Egypt and the United
Kingdom.

At the dawn of Camelot, one young girl is about to take her place beside the greatest king in England’s history…. 

 

 

 

She is a mere child of twelve. But in these medieval days, this is the age when childish things must be put away and greater responsibilities accepted—all in preparation for a betrothal of marriage.

 

 

 

For young Lady Guinevere, on the advent of her thirteenth Birth Day, the whole idea is quite unbearable. After all, what could be better than spending her youth playing with her best friend Cedwyn, roaming the grounds around the castle looking for mythical creatures or hunting rabbits?

 

However, the wizard Merlyn—her teacher and friend—knows that destiny has a way of catching up with a person. His arrival sets in motion a series of events that will lead Guinevere to her destiny whether she is ready for it or not.

Wars, The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter
, and The Mummy. I’ve watched each of these so many times that I’ve lost track, and my husband shakes his
head when he sees one on and says, “Really?” I just smile.
7.      I
am a night owl:
I don’t
usually go to sleep until midnight, and now that I’m retired, I’m comfortable
not seeing the sun come up in the morning:)
8.      My
favorite food:
That would
be a smothered shredded beef burrito washed down with a good margarita.
9.      My
favorite authors:
I grab
anything by the writing duo of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Childs, and I also
love their individual books. David Baldacci’s books are also favorites. I’m
addicted to blood & guts & spy thrillers!
10.    If
I could live anywhere, it would be in Colorado.
We have the best weather—All four seasons. I
live next to the foothills, and a drive up in the Rockies is a cure for any
ailment. I can see the world famous Red Rock Amphitheater from my couch, and if
the wind is just right, we can hear the concerts. My immediate family is all
here, except for one sister who lives in Texas, poor soul. In addition to being
a retired teacher, I’m also a retired airline employee. So, when I need a
change, it’s so easy just to hop a plane and go to the beach.

The Librarian Shoots a Gun an Audrey Scott Mystery by Amber Gilchrist is an investigation tale full of surprises and some humor. You will find diverse and interesting characters throughout the story. The Librarian Shoots a Gun is a murder mystery that will provide you a few hours in a world full of conspiracy and real life. It is a clean, delightful mystery solved by a small but very intelligent woman. Audrey is a Librarian in charge of the program for kids in her home town of Tulsa, Oklahoma. She is more than thirty and not yet married. Her cousin is getting married and the family decides to introduce her to the best man. The problem starts when he disappears from earth and is being hunted by the police for murder. The wedding is off, and the investigating policemen thinks that she knows where the guy is hiding. Since she has never seen the guy, she gets put out by the policemen and their suggestions. When the best man enters her room in the middle of the night, Audrey defends her five foot body with all she has, and breaks his nose. It is after this incident that she realizes that the best man doesn’t have anyone else he knows in Tulsa, and that he really wants her to help him. She starts her own investigation to prove the best man innocence, and gets entangled with the mafia, dead people and crooked policemen, but the most dangerous part is when her heart decides to fall for the wrong man. The Librarian Shoots a Gun is not a romance, so don’t expect a happy ending, but you will get all the mysteries resolved. It is great reading for even a Young Adult although it is meant as an adult mystery. You can’t go wrong with this story.

Rising Tide: Dark Innocence by Author Claudette Melanson 

Claudette Melanson writes & edits in Guelph, Ontario, with her husband Ron and four bun babies: Tegan, Pepper, Butters & Beckett. She graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a BA in English and an MA in Literature. She’s wished to be a Vampire since age five. She hopes to one day work full time as an author, since there are many, many books living inside her head.

In her spare time she enjoys watching Japanese Anime and reading vampire stories….along with other great fiction. She is also very interested in good health and is an advocate of Ketogenic eating, using whole and natural foods. Her favorite foods are bulletproof coffee, cashew flour crust pizza and treats made with xylitol and almond, coconut or cashew flours.

Future dreams include writing many more books and spending more time with her son Jacob. Her biggest dream is to make Universal Halloween Horror Nights a yearly event with hubby and son. A Rabbit Rescue fanatic, she also hopes to help rescues all over the world save many innocent lives.


Q&A With the Author:
1- When did you know you wanted to write books?  From about age five. I would always narrate things in my brain—all the things around me. I used to make up stories about people I’d see all the time. I even wrote a continuing story for my dance class that the teacher would read at the beginning of class every week.

 

2- What does your writing process look like?  The past year I’ve been doing a lot of editing for other authors. But that has kept me from writing. I intend for next year to be spent, predominantly, writing. It’s very sporadic right now, whenever I can fit it in, but I want it to become more of a fixed schedule. I like to write with music on or a horror movie on in the background, and also watching my bunbabies at play.

Could Maura’s life get any worse? …turns out it most certainly can.
 

Isolated and sheltered by her lonely mother, Maura’s never been able to make friends. She seems to drive her classmates away—except for the odd times they pay enough attention to torture her—but she doesn’t understand why. Maura considers herself to be a freak of nature, with her unusually pale skin and an aversion to the sun that renders her violently nauseous. Her belief is only worsened by the fact that almost everyone around her keeps their distance.
Even her own father deserted her before she was born, leaving Maura alone with her emotionally distant mother, Caelyn. Even though Maura is desperate for answers about her unknown parent, Caelyn remains heartbroken and her daughter can’t bring herself to reopen her mother’s wounds. Or is there a more sinister reason Caelyn refuses to utter a word about her long-lost love?When a cruel prank nearly claims Maura’s life, one of her classmates, Ron, rushes to her rescue. Darkly handsome & mysteriously accepting, Ron doesn’t seem to want to stay away, but Maura is reluctant to get too close, since her mother has announced she’s moving the two of them to Vancouver…nearly 3,000 miles away from their hometown of Indiana, Pennsylvania.If life wasn’t already challenging enough, Maura begins to experience bizarre, physical changes her mother seems hell bent on ignoring, compelling Maura to fear for her own life. Vicious nightmares, blood cravings, failing health and the heart-shattering loss of Ron—as well as the discovery of a tangled web of her own mother’s lies—become obstacles in Maura’s desperate quest for the unfathomable truth she was never prepared to uncover.

Author Top Ten List:
1.
I have four housebunnies, who
are spoiled to death. They have their own room, filled with toys, off the
living room. Tegan, Pepper, Butters & Beckett.
2.
In college, I lived in a
haunted house. The ghost would turn the light on (light bulb with a chain) in
the front closet every night at 9:00 PM. No one would ever believe me until
they saw it. It moved other things around too in a non-harmful way.
3.
When I was little, I was
obsessed with Dinosaurs and used to have this little plastic set I played with
all the time.
4.
Eating gluten makes my
Rheumatoid Arthritis go crazy, so I make all my cookies, cake and pizza dough
with nut flours and can make pretty much anything you could make out of regular
flour. Believe me when I say diet is what controls disease. I laughed at my
naturopath when she first told me this, but then had to admit how wrong I was.
5.
My favorite colors are red and
black…together. I don’t have a single favorite, must be those two together. I
try to make as much of my wardrobe as possible in these colors.
6.
In college, I was in every club
the English department had and between them and studying, had no free time. But
they were nice enough my senior year to name an award after me, which they
continued to give every year.
7.
I wanted to write a book since
the age of five, but once, I wrote a story for a Star Wars competition. My
mother was so critical, I rewrote it (and the second one sucked), completely .
I was nervous after that, and it took me six years to finish my first book, in
large part because of that incident.
8.
I can be competitive,
especially when someone is mean to me. I took an idea to one of my English
clubs in college for the upcoming alcohol-free mix off. One of the girls said
it was stupid in a very snarky way, so I went to a different club. We did a
whole Death’s Angst theme and even wrote a poem about how Death felt cheated,
since no one was driving drunk that night. We had a little graveyard with names
on the stones like, “Danny Drovedrunk.” We took Best of Show with the huge
trophy, and the college kept our poem to use at future mix offs, since we’d
followed the message they were trying to get across so well.
9.
It’s my dream to move to
Whitehorse in the Yukon Territories in Canada. I moved to Ontario from
Vancouver when I met my husband and hate living here. I regret leaving the
beauty of the west behind and hope next year to be living in this place, which
is so beautiful and offers so much more opportunity. I think it would offer so
much more writing inspiration too. Northern Lights are one thing I haven’t
experienced yet that I’m dying to see in person. Plus, I love snow, so it’s a
win-win.
10.
I was a breech baby when I was
born, and almost killed both myself and my mother at birth. The doctor let me
go too far for surgery and she ended up being in labor for over 48 hours.
Perhaps it was this early brush with near death that gave me such a love of the
macabre.

 The Matchup by Author Laura L. Walker 

Tuesday, July 19th, 2016

Having been raised in Arizona, Laura L. Walker and her husband whom she met at Northern Arizona University think it’s a great place to raise their six children. Laura and her family enjoy camping on beautiful Mt. Graham, reading, and learning history together. At the end of the day, Laura loves to curl up with a good book or write one of her own. The Matchup is her second novel.


Q&A With the Author:

1.
What inspired your book?
The Matchup is the continuation of the Logan family’s
story from Pierced by Love but it can
also be read on its own. I wanted to figure out why Gage, Pierce’s younger
brother, struggled with his faith. And then I discovered the perfect match for
him in Valerie and immediately knew that her struggle with single-handedly
raising an autistic son needed to be told as well.
 
1.
What kind of music do you
listen to while you write?
My “music” is either complete silence or my
kids’ favorite TV programs in the background.

The last thing Valerie wants is to work for Gage Logan. But Valerie’s husband walked out on her and her children. Now she needs a job. Gage, on the other hand, has just taken custody of his four-year-old son and is swamped trying to balance his career, be a daddy, and fix past mistakes. Together they discover that when it comes to their faith and each other, it’s all about second chances.

Author Top Ten List:
1.
I am somewhat ambidextrous – I
write, use utensils, and lead music with my left hand but use scissors, catch a
softball, and bat with my right.
2.
My favorite all-time movie is
The Sound of Music. I watched it so many times as a child that my brothers now refuse
to allow their wives to watch it.
3.
I met my husband while planning
an outing to the Grand Canyon. We talked like old friends for hours while hiking
the upper rim. I immediately knew he was the guy for me!
4.
I graduated from Northern
Arizona University the day after we got married.
5.
I like to sew quilts for my
kids.
6.
I’m a fairly good cook,
although I didn’t acquire this particular skill until after I married. I make a
mean oatmeal chocolate chip cookie.
7.
 Of my six children, only one looks like me and
has my blue eyes. She also fits in the same birth order as I do with my
siblings.
8.
A year ago, my heart’s left
ventricle was only working at 18% capacity. Now, it’s back to normal range
(which is 60%). Doctors are calling me a miracle and I know they’re right.
9.
My favorite color is red.
10.  I once found a baby Gila monster in my garage. Good thing it didn’t
stay!

Unclaimed by Erin McCole Cupp

Sunday, July 17th, 2016

My Review:

Unclaimed by Erin McCole Cupp is a very interesting tale of a girl who is not wanted by her foster family. Her foster siblings have abused her and their mother blames her for everything her kids do. Tired of the power struggles with the girl, she sells her to an institution that promotes slavery. The reader will follow along as she learns how to survive in her new setting and share the struggles she goes through.

51SlUMJQn9L._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_

I really enjoyed the story because it was quite different from anything out there right now; the setting, the voice and the story. Though, it was a bit slow for me. All in all; the book is clean, has a good story, good characters and will be loved by readers of all ages–especially middle graders. It will be a good addition to any library or home.

A Manhattan Murder Mystery

Saturday, July 16th, 2016
July 16: DEATH UNSCRIPTED: A Trudy Genova Manhattan Mystery by Author Marni Graff
                                                   Summer Banner
About the book:
“Trudy Genova has the best job a nurse could have: working as a medical consultant for a movie studio in Manhattan means no more uniforms, bedpans or white shoes. She’s working with a womanizing actor, teaching him to fake a heart attack, when he dies right in the middle of taping–but not before pointing his finger accusingly at Trudy. When detectives view Trudy as a suspect, she swings into action to clear her name, to the chagrin of NYPD detective Ned O’Malley. Soon the bodies mount up and Trudy realizes she’s put herself in jeopardy. Based on the author’s real work experience as a medical consultant, this is the book her mentor and friend, P D James, insisted she write.”
 cover-2
My review:

Trudy is a nurse working as a medical consultant for a TV studio where different movies or drama pieces are filmed. She teaches the actors what to do when a medical emergency happens, the doctors how to act during the emergency, and the director what terminology should be used in such emergencies. She can also use her computer to fake the signals on the machines that are attached to an actor portraying a patient in the hospital. She loves her work until one of the actors drops dead during filming. This happened right after she gave him eyes drop to make him look like he was having a heart attack. The problem arises when she becomes the main suspect of poisoning him.

Death Unscripted a Trudy Genova Manhattan Mystery by Author Marni Graff is good-paced murder mystery that will likely become your favorite. I enjoyed the twists, bodies, secrets and the light romance in this story. The characters are a great bunch of people, and the bad guys follow suit. You will find this murder mystery easy to read, yet you won’t guess who did it. What I didn’t like was the unnecessary swearing in it. There wasn’t much, but it certainly didn’t move the story or add to the telling–so why put them there?

The Wizard’s Heir by Author Devri Walls

Tuesday, July 12th, 2016

      Devri Walls lives in Meridian ID with her husband, two kids and the cutest must you’ve ever seen. After suffering from an abundance of creativity with not enough places to put it, she turned to writing. Which in the end, turned out to be exactly where she should have been putting it all along.       Q&A With The Author:

1.    What inspired your book?
Actually, the cover. The art was done by Claudia McKinney from Phatpuppy art who also did all four of the covers for my first series. I saw the art in her portfolio and knew I wanted to write this guy’s story! So I bought the image first and wrote around it.
2.    How do you spend your free time
I have kids, what is this “free time” you speak of?
I’m a foodie, I love going out to eat. I also love watching shows of all kinds, theater or T.V. Also reading of course.

Tybolt’s a Deviant, a hated race immune to direct magic in a world where Wizards ensure survival. But when he loses his entire family to a spell-made storm he joins an elite group of Wizard hunters, organized beneath the new non-magic wielding king.Now eighteen, he spends his days capturing Wizards. But the nights are his, reserved to feed the starving villagers of Eriroc under cover of dark. There’s always more people in need than he can help, and one of these days he’s going to hang for theft from the royal kitchens. Although Tybolt and his fierce partner, Auriela, have imprisoned many Wizards, the one partially responsible for the storm that killed Tybolt’s family is still out there: Alistair. When an old informant claims to have information regarding their elusive prey, everything changes. In a cruel twist, Tybolt realizes he isn’t who he thought he was at all. How can he save himself, the people, and those he loves while keeping his secrets safe? Can he hide his true nature and allow the corrupt king to remain on the throne? Or will he have to unveil himself and risk possible execution to save them all?

Top Ten List:
1. I can’t wear lipstick without looking like a painted china doll. Seriously guys, it looks ridiculous.
2. I drop pretty much everything I touch.
3. I ruin SO MANY CLOTHES. I spill all the time, it’s a little embarrassing.
4. I love, love, love Thai food.
5. I used to struggle with depression and anxiety really bad. Once I learned how to deal with it, my likes and dislikes totally changed. Now I can’t stop buying things in really bright colors.
6. I couldn’t afford to put in granite counter tops in the house we bought and they were so bad! So, I painted them with chalk board paint. FYI — they look pretty awesome.
7. I’m a super-fast reader. About 100 pages an hour.
8. I come across as an extrovert because I’m a performer, but I’m a TOTAL introvert.
9. When my kids ask me “why” I sing the theme song I made up about how I’m the meanest mom in America. Works like a charm
10. I have an auto immune disease called, Ankylosing Spondylitis. It’s a mouthful and a pain in my butt. But we all work through hard things, this just happens to be mine.

My review: 

A Gateway to Hope by E. C. Jackson is a beautiful story about a Christian girl that is to quiet for anyone to noticed, including her family. One day she does something out of character for her and leave town for two weeks with out telling her family before hand. Why you wonder? She is going to become engage with the guy she is in-love with to help him get his position back in his father dominion business. It all work perfectly until the get back to town and his other girlfriends try to get him back.

This book is about faith in Gods plans for us and open mind to fallow his ways. The main character is a religious girl and small passages in the bible are quoted in a few place throughout the story. Even so there isn’t a lot of preaching in this book just a pleasant remainder of how we can have a better life if we listen to God and let Him help us.

A gate away to hope is a nice pace story that will help you feel great and you will be rotting for both main characters. It has great moral values that need to be share more often in romances. This is a simple and clean romance tale for all to enjoy without reserve. A Gateway to Hope by E. C. Jackson is a great reading material and a well-done book. Happy readings.

Ten gruesome figures stood around a rusty cage that held two identical little girls

Synopsis:

The kingdom of Bethany was once a beautiful place made up of five magical nations, each with their own special gifts. It all changed in a day, however, when the murderous dredgelings arrived. No one quite knows where they came from or how they keep multiplying, no matter how many are killed in the long, cruel war they’ve waged.
All seems to be lost, until a human girl named Taylor is mistakenly transported to Bethany.
Kane, the king over these nations, despises her whole-heartedly at first, and then she makes him laugh for the first time since the devastation began years ago. And the earthling manages to find new ways to surprise him with her valor and loyalty every single day. Unfortunately, Taylor’s only wish through their dangerous quest to reunite three magical stones and save the kingdom, aside from surviving this fearful place, is to return home.

But as fate goes, she soon discovers the only way to recapture the stones and save the lives of the royals she’s come to love as her first real family is to give up any hope of ever returning to her old life. In the end it all comes down to what sort of hero she truly is, one to her own self, or one to entire nations.
