Shot by an arrow and abandoned, Hetty finds herself at the mercy of an unlikely quartet of misfits. A prostitute aka mail-order bride, two children pretending to be hers, and a wise Chinese man full of advice from Confucius and they are all on the way to meet up with Karl Norwood-poor man didn’t know what was about to hit him.  Hetty didn’t realize the fun was just getting started.  When Karl’s “sweet” mail-order bride finds karma is swift and just and plummets off the side of a cliff, Hetty must make a decision that will save two orphans and maybe even herself, all she must do is step in and become a widowed mother of two. How hard could it be?

Right away Karl knows something is amiss when he meets up with the group.  First, how could this young lady be the mother of two children, that were obviously older than what the letters had stated.  Furthermore, these children had different fathers and looked nothing like this stunningly beautiful woman.  Not willing to let the beauty walk away, he decides to play their little charade and see how it went, not realizing he might just fall in love along the way.

I stumbled across this book at my favorite used bookstore, and I absolutely fell in love with the characters and the author.  I love it when I find a new author that takes me on a journey through her writing.  From page one I was instantly swept away, becoming more and more involved with the characters and their dilemmas, cheering them on when they stumbled. Watching the “plain” Karl transform into the dashing young man that Hetty couldn’t help to fall in love with.  I can’t wait to buy other books by Joan Johnston, she is an author I would recommend to my friends.

By Jamie Ripp

Suddenly ripped from her boring mundane life, Arri found herself thrown into a world of danger- something that not even her worst nightmares could have prepared her for.  What do you do when you find out your whole life has been one big lie, and worst of all you find out vampires are real and not only have you been living with them, but you’ve been calling them Mom and Dad?  Her own parents had kept their true identity from her, hoping to shield her from the most powerful and evil vampire to walk the face of the Earth, but it was only a matter of time before Nicholas found her, and he was ready to fight- he wouldn’t lose this time.

                Finding herself on the run and turning to the most unlikely of friends, Arri doesn’t know who she can trust, and she must remember there’s more to the people than what first meets the eye.  It’s not uncommon to be rubbing shoulders with vampires and werewolves when she turns to others for help, looking for protection in the arms of those that she isn’t so sure she should be trusting, much less falling in love with.

                Jamie has done a great job weaving a story that keeps the reader turning the pages as fast as they can to find out how Arri will survive this new attack on her life.  Keeping me on the edge of my seat with action, suspense and the thrill of a paranormal romance, she keeps this romance clean enough for both teens and adults.  Mrs. Ripp reaches all ages with her writing.  I enjoyed reading her story and watching the characters come alive and leap off the pages.  I can’t wait for the other books in the series to continue Arri’s adventures.

cloudHQ Multi Email Forward for Gmail

   Posted by: Kristina   in Uncategorized

In the middle of the night, while sleeping like most people do at 2:30 in the morning, I was rudely awakened by a phone call. Just one ring, no problem- probably a freak accident. And then 30 minutes later, it happened again. Finally enough was enough, and I unplugged the phone line. I quietly went throughout my morning, ready to call the phone company to block this call when I receive a text from a client. It seems they had accidentally routed their incoming fax to my number. Not cool.  Little did I know that this problem would then trickle down into me getting over 100 faxes a day sent to my email, which needed to be sent to the proper owners of said faxes.  I was quite tired of having to hit forward every single time that I needed to send the email on, but it was also getting my inbox overly congested.  I didn’t have the time to stop and forward every 3 minutes, and when I learned that this problem would be at least another 24 hours I knew I needed to come up with a better system.  Thanks to google search I came up with cloudHQ Multi Email Forward for Gmail as the solution to my problem.  With a few clicks of my mouse I was quickly emptying out my inbox and I could move on with my life.  I’m so grateful that I found cloudHQ Multi Email Forward for Gmail, because it turns out-what was supposed to only be 24 hours has now gone into 48 and they are still coming.  I wouldn’t be able to keep on top of the mess without this extension; I can’t tell you how happy I am that I stumbled across it.  I would definitely recommend this app to anyone that needs to forward multiple emails at one time. What a time saver.

Another Timeless Regency Collection that I enjoyed reading, the stories are quick and entertaining.  These collections help you find new authors to explore and also bring in your favorite authors.  This collection wasn’t my favorite, but it wasn’t a disappointment either.

I received a free ecopy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Buy: Fresh Starts: Bree’s Story

Bree has been able to live a few short years free of fear from her crazy stalker as he sits in his jail cell.  However, his time has come to an end and he’s about to be released.  In order to protect her and her family, her brother has hired a private body guard aka Greyson Law.  Heading to Oregon to care for an apple orchard under the disguise of a married couple, Greyson and Bree find that the chemistry is pretty strong from the get go.  It helps that Greyson has had a crush on Bree since they were kids and now Greyson just has to convince her that he’s not the jock from high school that she remembers.

Kimberly Krey does an amazing job writing a story that has characters that anybody can relate to.  As with her other books, the characters are developed and the story line moves quickly.  It seems every time I open one of her books I set it down thinking, “Wow, now that was my favorite one!” Each one is just as good as the one before.  I love that her books can be read by themselves, but they are also all interconnected with characters from each of the series.

First Crush (In the Garden Book 2)

   Posted by: Kristina   in Uncategorized

Buy from Amazon: First Crush

Maddie McCormick is a teacher and she has a vision that will bring the community together, will help the local food bank, and give her students the knowledge of growing their own food. She’s creating a garden complete with plots for people to buy and garden for themselves. With the help of her best friends they put together the green house and the plots, and as a extra side perk she gets to work alongside her long time crush: Officer Ben Belliston, her brother’s best friend. When tragedy falls upon Ben’s sister-in-law he finds himself an instant father of his eight year old niece. Completely lost at raising a child, Ben finds himself turning to Maddie more and more for help. Can Maddie keep her feelings secret from Ben, or can she make that big leap of faith from friend to girlfriend without losing the closeness they share? Ben is clueless about Maddie’s feelings and he’s stubborn to his own feelings that start to grow inside him. When he does start to clue in on the chemistry that is between them he lets his fears get in the way and finds that he is about to lose the beautiful stable woman who has been in his life since he was a little boy and who he has fallen in love with.

Heather Tullis has created a great story that brings in the healing power of love. I started reading it one night, just hoping to get in a couple chapters before I went to bed and it turned into one of those midnight reading marathons where I couldn’t put the book down until I hit the last page. I have not read a book by this author before, but I found her writing smooth and easy to follow and her characters were strong and developed. She did a great job of using Ben’s background as a cop to really help his niece, Felicia, find her way through fear, loss and abuse. I fell in love with Ben, with his background he could have chosen to take any wrong path, but he chose to end the cycle of alcohol abuse and physical abuse that he lived with and suffered through from his own father and give Felicia a beautiful safe environment where she could feel loved and completely secure. I love it when I get a crush on a character in the book I’m reading, it tells me that the author loves her characters and does an amazing job creating their stories and their personalities and presents them in a way that we as readers, can’t help but love.
