Book Review: Home Sweet Christmas

Image
  With twinkling humor and heartfelt Christmas spirit, two friends find love in a town called Wishing Tree… Until Camryn Neff can return to her “real” life in Chicago, she’s in Wishing Tree to care for her twin sisters. She’s not looking for forever love, not here. But handsome hotelier Jake Crane is a temptation she can’t resist, so she suggests they pair up for the season. No golden rings, no broken hearts. At his side, she sees her hometown through Christmas-colored eyes. The cheer is cheerier, the joy more joyful. She thought she had put her future on hold…but maybe her real life was here all along, waiting for her to come home. New in town, River Best is charmed by Wishing Tree’s homespun traditions and warmhearted people. When she’s crowned Snow Queen, she’s honored but wary. Dylan Tucker, her king, seems like the stuff of sugarplum dreams, but she can’t shake the feeling that he’s hiding something big. As they perform their “royal” duties—tasting cookies, lighting trees—Dylan’s

After gaining his freedom, he did his best to lay low but there was one problem.

She soon found herself in the presence of Vincenzo at the order of her own father. James has no idea his punishment will end up being the beginning of a dark secret.

Book Review: Timelock

  An innocent man. A radical punishment. The clock is ticking . . . With crime rampant in the near future, the President authorizes a hugely controversial program: TimeLock, a cellular acceleration process whereby select prisoners are instantly aged the total number of years of their sentence. In other words-three strikes and you’re old . . . very old. Despite ongoing public outcries, two years later the program is up and running and crime is already on the decline. But what happens if you’re innocent? Falsely convicted of murder, 23-year-old Morgan Eberly is sentenced to be aged 40 years in a TimeLock capsule. Then fate intervenes-halfway through his processing, protesters opposed to the program infiltrate the prison and Morgan, suddenly 20 years old, manages to escape. Terrified and on the run, Morgan enlists the help of Janine Price, the FBI agent who arrested him. With dark and powerful forces on their trail, the unlikely pair investigate murders of ex-prisoners who were transforme

While sorting through a relentless deluge of emails, something catches her eye: the tender (and totally private) exchanges between a partner at the firm, Forest Watts, and his enchanting wife, Annabelle. Cassie knows she shouldn’t read them. But it’s just one look. And once that door opens, she finds she can’t look away.
