At Last, Alex Troutt Thriller:Book 6 - Review

New Release....
Alex Troutt Thriller, Book #6
AT Last

Thirty years after losing a parent to a hit-and-run drunk driver, FBI agent Alex Troutt finally confronts the killer--the same man who just murdered the Boston police chief.
And what Alex pulls from him shatters her core.

Armed with little more than hope and a shred of decades-old evidence, Alex chases a memory from her past, hoping that she'll find the mother she never really had. With her old buddy Archie on board --as much as ever can be -- the hunt takes her deep into the foothills of West Virginia. A fanatical religious cult has created its own society. Desperate to right a thirty-year wrong, Alex must out-think and out-duel everyone in her path to right a thirty-year wrong.

Will Alex’s quest to find the truth destroy her life all over again?

John W Mefford's Alex Troutt Thriller series is a group of books that can be read in succession or each one can stand alone. This most recent addition to the series, At L…

Friends or Enemies? A Brynn Brancroft Mystery - Overcast Sunset


Brynn Bancroft’s enjoyment at running her former husband’s winery is overcast by a rash of troubling burglaries and her inability to reconnect with her ex. When she receives an urgent phone call from an old college friend requesting that she speak to an investor, she welcomes the interruption. Unfortunately, her friend’s business activities intrude on her routine. Then her ex-husband threatens her marriage hopes when he considers selling the winery. When the burglaries escalate, a sense of foreboding plagues her, hinting at trouble to come.

MY REVIEW Brynn Bancroft is new to establishing meaningful friendships, so she doesn't see the red flags her old college roommate is randomly dropping all over their newly re-established relationship; emotional time bombs that may just end up costing her everything that she's been working hard to regain.

In Overcast Sunset, Joyce T. Strand invites us back into the lives of Brynn and her ex-husband Liam, who have become the g…

Stay Summer Hydrated with BodyArmor Super Drink

Disclosure: This is a sponsored posts which contains affiliate links.

Summer is here, and that means my kids are ready to rip and run in the sun. While my daughter is headed off to work for her pre-college summer, my 12-year-old pre-teen son is doing what he loves best - all kinds of summer sports and water park activities.  They both work up enough sweat to be their own version of exhausted by the days end. 
That's what summer is all about - making sure they are still actively learning while they burn enough calories to drop into bed exhausted by the time they get home and eat dinner, right? That's always my goal!

While he's out there doing all of that sweating, running and working hard in the summer heat, I need to make sure he's properly hydrated. Sure, I keep a water bottle in his sports bag, and sometimes he drinks that. 
Most of the time, though, he and his sports buddies are more interested in something with flavor and color. Over the years as a team mom and sports …
