First Street Church Romances: Love's New Hope (Kindle Worlds Novella)

Melody Tanner has a secret no one in Sweet Grove knows. Most people know Melody quit college in the first semester of her sophomore year because her father died. A few even know that when she came back to Sweet Grove she was pregnant. But the secret no one knows eats at Melody each and every day and keeps her from allowing anyone to get too close in case she’s hurt again. When Jake Hayes decides to stay at the Orchard Blossom Inn while covering for his friend as the town’s large animal veterinarian, he’s hoping for a quiet Rockwell-type Christmas. Everyone’s friendly, and Sweet Grove certainly fits the bill. Everyone, that is, except Melody. Now the two are forced to work together and one of them is going to have to give in… or give up.

In The End: An Ivy Nash Thriller by John W Mefford - Review

NEW RELEASE....
A generation has lost its way. And no one will sin without retribution.

Parents are crushed after their daughter is ripped from their lives. Ivy chases every lead, but the fog of deception is deep.

So very deep.

For mankind, the end is near. How many sacrifices will it take before the cataclysmic events can't be stopped?

It was supposed to be a confession. Instead, it became a statement of conviction -- to Satan.

Will Ivy be able to stop a demonic killer?

It's one woman's pledge to save a generation from a fanatical psychopath.

It's one man's path to claim his destiny.

Can Ivy possibly back away from the threat?

He believes Ivy has sinned. And it is time for her life to end…just like all the others.

MY REVIEW

Mefford's Ivy Nash series stays consistent in a couple of ways. First, Ivy has her faithful side kick teen P.I., Christina, by her side; and the ever faithful to the job Stan. Next, there are multiple story lines unravelling simultaneously a…

1892—Des Moines

Katherine Arthur and her family are back and it’s time to collect the money Mrs. Mellet left them in her will. The tidy sum will allow the family peace of mind and a future that’s stable and fulfilling. But when things don’t go exactly as planned, Katherine steps up to do more than her share. Hired as a kitchen mistress, her intuition (with the help of a mysterious recipe book), cooking prowess, and work ethic make her the perfect partner for the enigmatic, wealthy woman next door. Then Aleksey Zurchenko arrives.

Violet Pendergrass is a well-heeled, progressive woman with half a fortune in one hand and a plan for enduring prosperity in the other. Resourceful, shrewd, and tough, Violet doesn’t realize her one and only weakness leaves her vulnerable as she attempts to solidify her independence. She sees unparalleled value in Katherine’s gifts and do…

IN Control - An Ivy Nash Thriller: Review

NEW RELEASE....

A child is kidnapped, sending a mother into a panicked frenzy. It’s one of a dozen such crimes across central Texas, targeting those who live behind the pristine brick walls of master planned communities.

Ivy Nash hunts the kidnappers, but she quickly sees this case morph into something else entirely different…more dangerous, more twisted than anyone could imagine.

At the same time, the father of Ivy’s long-time friend pleads with her to do what no friend would ever want. But what she learns could shatter their worlds. An international drug trafficking ring. A professional hit. And one cover-up after another.

Secrets from the past are exposed, but how can Ivy separate reality from a smokescreen of falsehoods? With lives on the line, she can’t fail. The clock is ticking…

MY REVIEW

In this edition of the Ivy Nash thrillers, Ivy has a new mission. There’s a series of fake kidnappings and she needs to find out who is behind them. The crimes involve hacking and, of course, ki…

Writing for Bliss by Diana Raab

NEW RELEASE...
A Seven-Step Plan For Telling Your Story and Transforming Your Life

Writing for Bliss is most fundamentally about reflection, truth, and freedom. With techniques and prompts for both the seasoned and novice writer, it will lead you to tap into your creativity through storytelling and poetry, examine how life-changing experiences can inspire writing, pursue self-examination and self-discovery through the written word, and, understand how published writers have been transformed by writing.

Poet and memoirist Raab (Lust) credits her lifelong love of writing and its therapeutic effects with inspiring her to write this thoughtful and detailed primer that targets pretty much anyone interested in writing a memoir. Most compelling here is Raab's willingness to share her intimate stories (e.g., the loss of a relative, ongoing struggles with cancer, a difficult relationship with her mother). Her revelations are encouraging to writers who feel they need "permission to take.…

Lottery In Paradise: Review

Meet the crime-solving duo of the Florida Keys: Madison who has all the charm of the girl next door, not to mention a deadly aim and Fab, her best friend, a femme fatale private investigator with a taste for danger and stilettos.

When their neighbor is found dead, the headlines read, "It doesn't pay to be a lottery winner." It gets you nothing but an endless line of crazies at your door, greedy relatives and acquaintances. Sleuths Madison and Fab don't have time to be concerned about the latest murder; they have problems of their own trying to figure out why their house has suddenly become the focus of several attempted break-ins. The duo are off on more adventures -- what could go wrong chauffeuring a limousine full of college girls? Or chasing after a custom Ferrari? Along the way, there's a break-up, a wedding, and the usual run-ins with the law.

If you like sassy, exciting crime novels, then you'll love Lottery in Paradise, the eleventh book in the scorc…
