The next book up to be discussed is LIFE AS WE KNEW IT by Susan Beth Pfeffer

Take a look:


When Miranda first hears the warnings that a meteor is headed on a collision path with the moon, they just sound like an excuse for extra homework assignments. But her disbelief turns to fear in a split second as the entire world witnesses a lunar impact that knocks the moon closer in orbit, catastrophically altering the earth’s climate.

Everything else in Miranda’s life fades away as supermarkets run out of food, gas goes up to more than ten dollars a gallon, and school is closed indefinitely. But what Miranda and her family don’t realize is that the worst is yet to come.

Told in Miranda’s diary entries, this is a heart-pounding account of her strugg…

The Book Thief

Image
This book is narrated by none other than death itself. We start out with Liesel Meminger a young girl living with her foster parents Rosa and Herr Hubermanns, outside of Munich in Nazi Germany.
Liesel steals her first book at the cemetery of her little bother. The next book stolen is during a burning party of propaganda. During this time her father, Herr teaches her to read in their basement.
Ruby Steiner, her best friend gets into all kind of trouble like standing up to some bullies at the Nazi youth diversion, stealing food, and following Liesel on her many trips to the mayor’s house, where she steals many of her books from.
Everything is all good till one day a Jew by the name of Max Vandenburg asks for her father’s help. Hiding in the Hubermanns’s basement, Liesel and Max learn they have many things in common

This book was such a joy to read. It was refreshing and different. I loved it so much that I read it in one day. Plus the aspect of death narrating this book was great too. The…

Get Heartsick with Chelsea Cain

Image
I read this book a few months ago and have to say it was a good one. I loved the fact that this book featured more on a woman serial killer this time vs. a man. The only one little problem I had with it was that I thought Gretchen was more promient than the male killer in the book that Gretchen was suppose to help Archie track down. Still a good book. I give it 4 stars.

SUMMARY


From deep in the heart of his eighteenth century English manor, millionaire Sir Adrian Beauclerk-Fisk writes mystery novels and torments his four spoiled children with threats of disinheritance. Tiring of this device, the portly patriarch decides to weave a malicious twist into his well-worn plot. Gathering them all together for a family dinner, he announces his latest blow – a secret elopement with the beautiful Violet... who was once suspected of murdering her husband.


Within hours, eldest son and appointed heir Ruthven is found cleaved to death by a medieval mace. Since Ruthven is generally hated, no one seems too surprised or upset – least of all his cold-blooded wife Lillian. When Detective Chief Inspector St. Just is brought in to investigate,…

Whistling in the Dark

Image
A friend lent me this book to read. It was a very good book. Highly recommend it!! Whenever someone asks me what is a good book to read, I say this one.




Here is my review of the book.




It was the summer of 1959. Sally and Troo’s mom was in the hospital, their step dad was busy hitting the bottle and their sister Nell had other things on her mind like her boyfriend.

There were two murdered girls and Sally thought that she would be next. So that summer Sally and Troo were on a mission to track down the murder before something happened to Sally.

David Rasmussen, the next door neighbor, who is a cop, happens to have a picture of one of the murdered girls. What is his secret and why does he have an interest in Sally.

Despite the grittiness of a child predator killing little girls, Lesley Kagen still could keep the innocence of Sally and Troo throughout this book.



For anyone who enjoyed reading Water for Elephants than you need to check this book out. Whistling in the Dark is a fun, adventureous…

The Fabulous Debbie Wallace/Tory Richards!

I am so excited to have gotten the chance to interview Debbie Wallace/Tory Richards. Her blog http://debbiewallace.blogspot.com/ is one of my favorite blogs to check out. Her latest book All in the Jeans has received great reviews, so check it out. Ok, now onto the fun stuff.










I appreciate you answering some questions.

Thanks for asking me to be here today.

Describe your books in one sentence.

Romances filled with on the edge of your seat suspense, wicked humor and breathless, sizzling sex.

Where do you draw your inspirations from? Who are your inspirations?
That’s a tough question, it all depends. It could be a place I’m vacationing, an incident, a dream, anything. I got my inspiration for “ALL THE RIGHT MOVES” from all the Law and Order I watch. “SOMEONE TO LOVE ME” when I went to Alaska. “AGAINST THE ODDS” came from a dream. “WICKED DESIRE”, due out in October under my pen name Tory Richards, takes place in the little town I’m from in Maine, around the China Lake area.

Two Thrillers of Kevin O'Brien's

Image
I have read both of these books a while ago but thought I would chat about them, just in case no one has ever read this author's work. The first book I read of Kevin O'Brien's was The KillingSpree and the other one was One Last Scream. After reading One Last Scream, I am hooked and can't wait to read more by this author.
















When a serial killer gets a taste for blood...he only wants to do one thing...kill and kill again...



Years ago, the Seattle police were baffled by the Schoolgirl Murders. The killer staged the scenes, dressing his female victims in school girl uniforms and saddle shoes. No woman in Seattle felt safe, until they caught the man responsible, and the case was forgotten…



Across the country, a killing spree is taking place. The first victim is attacked in a taxi by a mysterious stranger. The next is found strangled in a changing room. A hitchhiker is left by the side of the road, his identity brutally stolen. The murders are so bizarre, so random, no one would …

The Reapers

Image
I have not read this book but wanted to share it. This was one of the books featured in a newsletter I receive.




As a small boy, Louis witnesses an unspeakable crime that takes the life of a member of his small, southern community. He grows up and moves on, but he is forever changed by the cruel and brutal nature of the act. It lights a fire deep within him that burns white and cold, a quiet flame just waiting to ignite. Now, years later, the sins of his life are reaching into his present, bringing with them the buried secrets and half-forgotten acts of his past.

Someone is hunting him, targeting his home, his businesses, and his partner, Angel. The instrument of revenge is Bliss, a killer of killers, the most feared of assassins. Bliss is a Reaper, a lethal tool to be applied toward the ultimate end, but he is also a man with a personal vendetta.

HUNTER'S EDGE by Shiloh Walker



Samhain Publishing
May 2008
ISBN: 1605040295





Some love can last a lifetime—their love was destined to last longer.


Angel’s first words to Kel were I’m going to marry you. She was seven at the time. He was eight. And he didn’t laugh when she spoke the words. Best friends as children, lovers as young adults, they had an unexplainable bond. Their future looked set. Until the night they were attacked by a creature that couldn’t exist.


Angel survived the attack—barely. But Kel didn’t. Or at least, nobody thought he did. His body was never found and Angel’s life would never be the same.


The attack might not have killed Kel’s body, but it sure as hell killed his heart. Twelve years later, there’s one part of his former life that he can’t move past. Angel. He can’t let her go, but he can’t have her either. She does…

UNREPENTANT. UNIMPRESSED. AND TOTALLY UNDEAD.


Eric's got issues. He has short-term and long-term memory problems; he can't remember who he ate for dinner yesterday, much less how he became a vampire in the first place. His best friend, Roger, is souring on the strip club he and Eric own together. And his girlfriend, Tabitha, keeps pressuring him to turn her so she can join him in undeath. It's almost enough to put a Vlad off his appetite. Almost. Eric tries to solve one problem, only to create another - he turns Tabitha into a vampire, but finds that once he does, his desire for her fades -- and her younger sister, Rachel, sure is cute. And when he kills a werewolf in self-defense, things really get out of hand. Now a pack of born-again lycanthropes is out for holy retribution, while Tabitha and Rachel have their own agendas -- which may or may not…

For the ability to transform into a heartless predator, a brutal warrior promised his soul-and the souls of his descendents-to the devil. Now, one thousand years later, the Wilder brothers battle the darkness inside them.




Blessed-or cursed-with the ability to change into a sleek, cruel panther, and driven by a dark soul he's accepted as his fate, powerful Adrik Wilder abandons his family and his honor to pursue a life of wickedness. He excels at every vice, kidnapping strong-willed Karen Sonnet and forcing her to welcome the helpless pleasure only he can give her.

My feature today is on two books Shadow Man and The Face of Death by Cody McFadyen.
For anything who likes suspense/thrillers will enjoy these books. While reading these books I can't belive that a man wrote them. You will understand when you read them as the way he writes the females characters and their personalites is just like a woman. I can't wait to see what Mr.McFadyen comes up with next.









Here's a little bit about the book.

Once, Special Agent Smoky Barrett hunted serial killers for the FBI. She was one of the best -- until a madman terrorized her family, killed her husband and daughter, and left her face scarred and her soul brutalized. Turning the tables on the killer, Smoky shot him dead–but her life was shattered forever.


Now Smoky dreams about picking up her weapon again. She dreams about placing the cold steel between her lips and pulling the trigger one last time. Because for a woman who’s lost everything, what is there left to lose?
She’s about to find out.

SOMETIMES IT’S ALL ABOUT THE SHOES


Whether facing the forces of evil or simply battling a bad hair day, fantastic footwear is key.


Yes, there are the right shoes for the right situation, and not every moment calls for Manolos. Sometimes a woman’s gotta be fierce as well as feminine, fiery as well as fragile. And when the legwork required is a roundhouse, when a girl’s mantra has to become “I am woman, hear me roar,” those are the times it’s good to know there’s magic in the world…because in super-powered pumps, the shrinking- est Violet or the nervous-est Nellie can do anything. Every step in magic shoes is sure to be a big one.

Pleasure

Image
I have not read this book yet but it sounded interesting.




Pleasure is inspired by those tricky relationship questions: How realistic is it for a woman to expect one man to fulfill every need that she has? What if there is more than one side to her heart? What happens when the brain loses the battle with the heart and she acts on fantasies?



And if a woman wants to live in the moment, if she wants to have things her way, is it wrong for a man to do the same?Pleasure will feature a cast of characters navigating their way through Atlanta's torrid heat and humidity. Filled with sexual energy, it mirrors the internal struggles that sparked the plots of Eric Jerome Dickey's most popular and erotic novels - Naughty or Nice, Between Lovers, and The Other Woman.

I am so excited to bring to you today a great author. Her name is Sarita Leone. I discovered her when I picked her book to review for Fallen Angel reviews.

Honestly, I'm thrilled to be asked. Thanks for having me; I love "chatting" with readers!


Explain what a day in the life of an author is like? How long does it take from start to finish to complete a book?

My day is just like anyone else's I suppose. I do the "normal" stuff...laundry, housekeeping, cooking. I find time each day for exercise. In the summer months I garden. I spend time with my husband...that's my favorite part of any day!

Delusion

Image
A woman's world is turned upside down when new evidence frees a man she put in prison with her testimony years ago in this latest ingenious thriller from the author Publishers Weekly calls "one of the best contemporary thriller writers around."

Twenty years ago Nell Jarreau witnessed the murder of her boyfriend. Her testimony put a man behind bars—and led her to her husband, Clay, the gentle detective who solved the case. They've been happy ever since—and have raised a daughter together—but then one phone call changes everything.

New evidence has exonerated Alvin DuPree, aka Pirate—the man Nell helped to convict—and now he's a free man. Nell is consumed by feelings of guilt, and for the first time in their marriage, Clay is no help. The case is closed for him, this new turn of events a mistake, nothing more, and Nell's attempts to talk to him about the situation are met with anger. And to make matters worse, the whole ordeal is beginning to wear on her relatio…

If there was one thing Queen Jarina hated it was for her uncle to try and control her. She was queen after all, though he seemed to forget it at every turn.


“Ampyx, hold your tongue,” Jarina said between clenched teeth.


Her uncle disregarded her order as he spun toward the small group of nobles gathered in the chamber. “She must marry. No woman should rule alone. Each of you know what type of damage a woman can get us into,” he all but shouted as he swung around and pointed to Jarina. “She’s young and doesn’t know yet her true position.

ELIZABETH HOYTANSWERS THE QUESTION ? WHERE DO ALL YOUR IDEAS COME FROM?? SORT OF


I was at a conference this last weekend and got asked the perennial author question, ? Where do all your ideas come from?? Authors have a tendency to either stare blankly at this question or laugh. The fact is, most of us have way too many ideas, but asking where they come from is like asking where the wind comes from. It?s just there, you know? (And yes, I know there's a scientific explanation for winds and how they start, but if you want to read about science today, go look at the Smithsonian website or something. Sheesh.) Anyway. So, usually there? Is just no answer to ? Where do all your ideas come from?? But, oddly enough, with my upcoming May release, To T…

Marco Galleazzo is on his way to Rome on an important mission. When he saves Isabella from a group of drunken mercenaries, she begs him to take her with him.

Shakespeare's Wife

Image
Little is known about Ann Hathaway, the wife of England's greatest playwright; a great deal, none of it complimentary, has been assumed. The omission of her name from Shakespeare's will has been interpreted as evidence that she was nothing more than an unfortunate mistake from which Shakespeare did well to distance himself.

While Shakespeare is above all the poet of marriage—repeatedly in his plays, constant wives redeem unjust and deluded husbands—scholars persist in positing the worst about the writer's own spouse. In Shakespeare's Wife, Germaine Greer boldly breaks new ground, combining literary-historical techniques with documentary evidence about life in Stratford, to reset the story of Shakespeare's marriage in its social context. With deep insight and intelligence, she offers daring and thoughtful new theories about the farmer's daughter who married England's greatest poet, painting a vivid portrait of a remarkable woman.

SAVANNAH WHEN IT SIZZLES


Savannah, Georgia: city of history, mystery, and ghosts as well as four best friends who have never fit in anywhere except with each other.
But everything is about to change as an unsolved murder from decades ago draws them close—and closer still—to four sexy bachelors with secrets of their own.

In Savannah, what you expect is never what you get...



FROM THE AUTHOR
Hi, Everyone!

One of the reasons I wrote Hot and Bothered is that I wanted to set a book in Savannah. Not only because I love Paula Deen, pralines, magnolias and am a Southern Belle at heart...yes, I do own a set of pearls and have my own deviled egg plate...but I love that Savannah is the most haunted city in the US! You can’t swing a ruffled parasol in Savannah without hitting something that has a ghost story connected to it. Every old restored building has strange noises, lights flashing, creeks and groans and stuff gone missing for no reason.


My daughter lives in Savannah in what was once an old Nor…
