Road to Bliss
Denise N. Wheatley
engaged Timber West is a beauty and wellness entrepreneur who
seemingly has it all. But her life is turned upside down when she
breaks off her engagement with Brian after he questions her career
choices and wavers on wanting more children. Timber turns to her
friend Eva for sympathy, which is tricky considering Brian is also
eventually finds love again with sexy actor Alex and moves her
company Soothing Bliss into a beautiful commercial space. With an
exciting new man and a business thatâ€™s flourishing, Timber feels as
though sheâ€™s on the perfect path. But sheâ€™s thrown into a
whirlwind of turmoil when Soothing Blissâ€™s new location is
threatened to be purchased by a callous art curator, and Alexâ€™s
popularity sparks his wandering eye.
Brian reappears and they start up an unlikely friendship, giving
Timber just the boost she needs. As Christmastime approaches,
Timberâ€™s wish is that her favorite holiday will bring about a
miracle in her fight to keep Soothing Bliss in its rightful home.
With a little compromise and dose of holiday magic, Timber wonders
whether she and Brian can work through their past and mend a
relationship that perhaps never should have unraveled.
West always plays by the rules. So even sheâ€™s surprised when she
decides to leave her prestigious job as a chemist and launch a beauty
and wellness company. Her fiancÃ© Brian, who was her chemistry
professor during college and also happens to be her best friendâ€™s
father, isnâ€™t happy with this decision. His disapproval leads to
their breakup, but a devastated Timber eventually finds love again
with a charismatic movie star. Life is good until both her new
relationship and business begin to falter, leaving Timber
reevaluating Brian and pondering whether she should give him a second
story just isnâ€™t a story without a large dose of romance and a
happily ever after. THE ROAD TO BLISS is just that. This novel is a
beautiful tale of love and second chances, with plenty of fun, drama
and turmoil in between! My main characterâ€™s love affair feels so
real to me, to the point where I found myself rooting for her in
hopes that everything would work in her favor. Writing this book was
a wonderful journey, and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I
enjoyed writing it!
N. Wheatley is a lover of romance, happy endings and the art of
storytelling. She used to cry as a three-year old child when her
mother read to her because she so badly wanted to read the books
herself! Once she learned, Denise constantly had her nose in a novel
(especially the ones sheâ€™d sneak from her momâ€™s bookshelf). Sheâ€™s
been writing for as long as she can remember and draws inspiration
from Chicago, the city where she was born and raised, as well as Los
Angeles, which is one of her favorite places in the world. Denise has
published several books and novellas with Simon & Schuster, Red
Sage Publishing, eXtasy Books and independently, has written
screenplays and teleplays, and has ghostwritten for some of your
faves. When she isnâ€™t sitting behind her computer, you can find
Denise in a movie theater, on a tennis court, watching true crime
television or chatting on social media.

up and getting trapped in adult life is something that most people
eventually face, but while reading The Fairytale Chicago of Francesca
Finnegan, a charming and magical book by Steve Wiley, it is almost
possible to forget about the inexorable progress of time. With a main
character who is teetering on the edge of forgetting about magic
forever, this novel is a touching and thought-provoking ride through
nostalgia, memory and the promises of youth. Wiley’s sharp,
tongue-in-cheek style of writing makes the pages fly and the Chicago
skyline makes a stunning backdrop for this mystical romp.
Chicago, a secret L train runs through the mythical East Side of the
city. On that train, youâ€™ll find a house-cat conductor, an
alcoholic elf, a queen of the last city farm, the most curious wind,
and an exceptional girl by the name of Francesca Finnegan.
we first encounter Richard K. Lyons, he is a man who has long
forgotten the one night, when he was still a boy called Rich, when
Francesca invited him aboard the secret L for an adventure through
the East Side. The night was a mad epic, complete with
gravity-defying first kisses, mermaid overdoses, and princess
rescues. Unfortunately for Rich, the night ended like one of those
elusive dreams forgotten the moment you wake. Now, Rich is all grown
up and out of childish adventures, an adult whose life is on the
verge of ruin. It will take the rediscovery of his exploits with
Francesca, and a reacquaintance with the boy he once was, to save

Hi Daron! Thanks for being on my blog this week.
So, you write clean adult books…Tell us whatâ€™s happening in your life?
I’m just living the dream. How many people get to go to work during the day, then come home at night, take care of a honey-do list, spend time with family, and then lose themselves in front of a computer for hours while they imagine themselves in a different world, battling against evil and ultimately vanquishing all foes? It’s rare, I tell you. Actually, I shouldn’t tell you . . . those other worlds are top secret. (more…)
This is a great story about health policies and an insurance adjuster who investigates the people who submit claims. The story is not new, but the twists shown by Gail take a refreshing point of view. The tale is well presented and the writing is easy to follow. I would have to say it is pleasantly done, clean, and intriguing.
This book relates the story of Pepper Bibeau, a war veteran become insurance adjuster. She has seen first hand what war can do to young menâ€™s lives and has dealt with her own war scars. She is sent to Chicago to investigate a possible fraud involving a doctor and the policy of a family he has treated. Pepper also needs to look into the background of the Tuarence couple. It is a case where the woman was killed by her husband and drugs may have played a big role. (more…)
