About the Author

PepperBasham

Pepper Basham is an award-winning author who writes romance peppered with grace and humor with southern Appalachian flair. Both her historical and contemporary novels have garnered recognition in the Grace Awards, Inspys, and ACFW Carol Awards. Her historical romance, The Thorn Healer, was a finalist in the 2018 RT Awards. Her historical romance novels, My Heart Belongs in the Blue Ridge and The Red Ribbon, and her contemporary novels, the Mitchell’s Crossroads and Pleasant Gap series, showcase her Appalachian heritage, as well as her love for humor and family. She currently resides in the lovely mountains of Asheville, NC where she is the mom of five great kids, a speech-language pathologist to about fifty more, and a lover of chocolate, jazz, hats, and Jesus.

I love Pepper Basham’s books and this is one of my favorites. The split timeliness from 1915 was interesting as well as The Biltmore Estates settings. I love the beautiful Biltmore and love it even more that this story shines a historical light on not only the beauty of the estate, but the beauty of life within the home. Sadie was only a helper, a servant, but boy did she leave a lasting story behind for those who would find and know her beautiful story decades later.

Ms. Basham does such an amazing job with researching her story and creating characters that tell the story so perfectly. I loved reading every single page of this book. And I can’t wait to read what’s next from Pepper Basham. This one is a Five Star for me, I wish I could give it more!

A special thanks to the author/publisher for a copy of this book. I am not required to write a positive review, the opinions here are mine alone. I am disclosing this with my review in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.

More from Pepper

Books are a uniquely portable magic – Stephen King

Appalachia is known for having a high illiteracy rate. A place of beautiful scenery and rugged landscapes, the people of the mountains developed stories through oral storytelling much more than “book learning”.  As a young girl growing up in this world, I loved hearing my granny share tales from up to five generations ago, filling in the narrative gaps between a birth date and a death date on a tombstone – giving flesh and breath to the stone-etched names.

It’s no surprise then, with a heart cultivated from rich oral stories, I fell in love with reading. Books became that “portable magic” that took me places my little Appalachian community couldn’t provide. I fell in love with the Boxcar Children and Nancy Drew. Wept through the end of Bridge to Terabithia and Old Yeller. Traveled to the plains with Sarah Plain and Tall and fell in love with horses with The Black Stallion. But when I was in seventh grade, I read my very first “British” novel, The Secret Garden. In that one introduction, my world expanded into mysterious English manor houses and British classics. Before long, I’d consumed Jane Eyre, Austen’s classics, some Dickens, Dracula, Frankenstein…and the list goes on! And then…I found Tolkien and Lewis – and the ‘real’ world swelled into OTHER worlds.

I’m grateful for true stories of book-loving pioneers traveling into the world of Appalachia to provide books and literacy training to “my people”, because I know some of those books made their way to my tiny elementary school library…and not only brought me the chance to discover stories, but to write them too!

Isn’t it amazing how books can do that?

In Hope Between the Pages, I wanted to bring the same awe and discovery I felt as a child (and continue to feel as an adult reader) to the story of two people whose words had seemed small. Stories stretched their worlds, but the stories also gave them wonderful imaginations and positive perspectives. It’s still amazing to me that ink-and-paper words can make such a lasting impact on hearts and minds. They can lead us to dream, teach us new things, encourage our hearts, help us to think outside the box, swell our imaginations, broaden our horizons, and encourage our hope.

Books are not a replacement for real adventures and relationships, but they certainly provide a beautiful “door” into other lives and worlds that we may never have a chance to experience in real life. Sadie, my historical heroine, and Clara, my contemporary heroine, both have kept close to home but traveled greatly through books…and BOTH are given the opportunity to reach beyond the bindings to discover real-life adventures. I’d like to think that their love for stories helped them have the courage to step away from the page and into their own tales even more prepared than they would have been without stories.

What are some of your favorite books you read as a child? Did any of them influence you to become a more avid reader?

Tour and Giveaway for Reel to Reel by Isla Grey

Lights, Camera, Action! From the very beginning, the world of cinema has captivated us. We have found ourselves laughing at our favorite comedies, crying when love finally comes to fruition, being beamed to other worlds or battling in the midst of action sequences. While movies might be the perfect entertainment, most have slight imperfections, mistakes, which go unseen, until they’re released and caught by the movie audience. These mistakes don’t detract from the film, and finding them are just as fun as watching the movie. For the past several years, Isla Grey has written a “Movie Mistakes” column for Bellaonline. “Reel to Reel” is a collection of some of those columns, spotlighting the fun goofs found in some of our favorite movies. Can you spot them? Grab the popcorn, sit back, and happy movie watching!

  Read an Excerpt

The Notebook

There’s no question–Noah and Allie are in love. Set in two different time periods, the beginning of the pair’s relationship is shown via a notebook an older Noah reads to Allie who is suffering the effects of dementia. Can true love ever be forgotten? Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching “The Notebook”.

Near the beginning of the movie, the younger Allie and Noah are at a carnival. After their first encounter, Allie and another man get on the Ferris wheel. The man is holding cotton candy in his right hand. This is noticeable throughout the scene. After Noah has climbed aboard and gets Allie to go out with him, the cotton candy the man was holding is now gone.

After Noah and Allie have watched the movie in the theater, they decide to go for a walk. When they get to the traffic light, Noah tells her how he used to lie in the road and demonstrates for her. At first, Noah is closer to the center of the lane to his left.  (This is noticeable in the overhead view.) During the close-up, Noah is now closer to the double lines that run down the middle of the road. This happens again when Allie joins him. At first, they are closer to the center of the lane to their left, but the next view shows them near the double lines.

  About the Author

Isla Grey is from Central Virginia and at an early age developed a love of movies.  She shared many Sunday afternoons watching old favorites with her grandmother that included everything from “Gone with the Wind” and “Rio Bravo” to “Titanic” and “The Mummy”.  (Her grandmother may or may not have made fun of her when she covered her eyes during “Anaconda”.)

Working as Bellaonline’s Movie Mistakes editor since 2012 has given Isla the opportunity to indulge in two of her passions—movies and writing.

When Isla isn’t writing or watching movies, most of her time is spent with her ever active daughter and her band of cats.  She also enjoys good music, reading biographies and ghost stories and taking quiet strolls.

Tour and Giveaway for Room’s of a Mother’s Heart by Dr. Carol McLeod

Rooms of a Mother's Heart

About the Book

Book:  Rooms of a Mother’s Heart

Author: Dr. Carol McLeod

Genre: Christian Living

Release date: April 20, 2021

9781641236560

For thousands of years and in a myriad of cultures, women have forged identity, unconditional love, and vast purpose in the calling of motherhood. From Eve to Sarah, from Ruth to Mary, the Scriptures are filled with the accounts of the heart of a mother who was given a divine opportunity to raise the next generation for the purposes and call of the Father.

Inside the soul of every mother lies a heart that becomes a repository of sweet memories, hard lessons, glorious victories, ordinary days, glaring failures, and God’s grace over the years of mothering. The heart of a mother becomes home to jokes around the dinner table, holiday traditions, the tears of childhood, and the love that only a mother knows. And this tender heart that has given birth to the future of mankind or has lovingly adopted the seeds of the next generation also develops rooms of unsurpassed greatness and quiet strength. These are the Rooms of a Mother’s Heart.

With her characteristic charm, joy, and biblical teaching that she shares like a good friend over a cup of coffee, Carol McLeod examines what it means to be a mother and offers tender encouragement to all women who accept that calling.

More from Carol

Evening Conversation …

I am working with my fabulous editor on the edits for my next book that will be released in April.

“The Rooms of a Mother’s Heart” is the title and writing it has caused me to travel back through the memory bank of my heart.

As I was working on the edits for the chapter, “The Nursery”, tonight, I came upon these words and thought that I would share them with all of you in my evening conversation.

It’s a lesson that I am still learning …

“The nursery is filled with little things, isn’t it?

It holds little bears and little clothes, tiny blankets and miniature books.

It is in the nursery of your heart that you develop an appreciation for the little things in life and where you begin to understand that these are actually life’s big things.

The nursery teaches that it is the little things in life that are capable of building a grand and historic life.

So often, during other years of my life, I have made the glaring error of living for the big moments, for the red-letter days of graduations, weddings, and championship ball games. The nursery has taught me that those monstrous occasions, as fabulous as they might seem at the time, do not construct a vital and enchanting existence at all.

A glass of iced tea on the back deck while the children are playing baseball, and the sweet giggle of a child just waking up from a nap—these give birth to a whimsical life.

The smell of the roses as I walk to the front door, a good book and a cup of coffee on a rainy afternoon, and making cookies with the children to share with the neighbors—these build a life of grand and lasting proportions.

A glorious life is built on one small but meaningful and carefully chosen building block at a time.

A wonderful life is composed of long walks along country roads while the children gather wildflowers.

It is pancakes on a Saturday morning and popcorn on Sunday evening.

In the nursery of my heart, I have been taught that the real stuff of life is as close and as dear as the morning song of the bird outside my bedroom window, the companionship of my daughter on my daily run, and the treasure of reading a devotional book that belonged to my grandfather.

Those events may seem small and even in consequential to you, but to me, they deliver joy.

There is no applause in a nursery, nor are there diplomas on the wall or trophies lined up across the changing table, but it remains the most splendid room in the entire home.

The nursery is absent of the rush of adrenaline, but it is filled with the sweet sighs of contentment.

Perhaps living inside a regular day in which nothing of earth-moving significance happens is at the heart of all that is truly meaningful and extraordinary.

The glory of life is found quite simply in the ordinary moments.

The treasure of a life well lived is acquired not in getting but in giving.

The substance of all that is good, rich, and meaningful is found in a thousand inconsequential gifts that are easily overlooked if one is not careful.

I hope that you will treasure the time spent in the nursery of your heart and remember that it is the little things that contribute to a large life.”

These are my thoughts for Sunday, January 31, 2021.

Blessings, my friends.

Gold Rush Bride Hannah Excerpt Seven

Dots of light danced in her vision, and roaring, like an approaching train, filled her ears. A lump formed in her throat. “Ambushed?” Her voice caught, and she swallowed. “Who would want to murder my husband?”

“Looks like the work of the Cherokees. I’ve got my boys looking into things as we speak.” He ducked his head. “I guess you’ll be pulling out and going back to Atlanta, so be sure to let me know how I can contact you when I solve the case. Shouldn’t be long.”

Overhead, the sun broke out from behind a bank of clouds casting a bright beam onto Hannah’s face. A slight breeze brushed her cheeks as if God had reached down to remind her of His love and presence, even during this terrible turn of events. Hannah squared her shoulders. “I’m not going anywhere, Sheriff. I’ve got a claim to work.

Paperback & ebook, 143 Pages
April 6, 2021 by Burns and Lea Books
Patient Twenty-Nine, or Jane, is within reach of her heart’s desire: a home outside of Soothing Hills Asylum, where she has been raised.
 
Her sister Jules wants to take her in, and a man, Mason, is deeply in love with her and wants to care for her. But before Jane can leave, she must be examined by the Board of Lunacy. Jane is still hearing voices and songs from the cornfield outside the asylum, voices and songs that tell her what she must do, and that no one else can hear. So the Board may not allow her to leave.
 
But the asylum is becoming more and more dangerous. Its lead alienist, Dr. Frost, has disappeared, there have been frightening sightings of a woman in white, running through the corn at night, and perhaps worst of all: lobotomized women from the asylum are turning up pregnant.
 
Jane is desperate to get away and go to her new home. Mason and Jules only want to rescue Jane from the asylum.
 
But there is a complication: for Jane, the voice in the corn calls. And she must obey.

Excerpt from Book

 

Gentile arrives at the chair, his wizened hand lightly touching the halo.


The hair on the back of my neck rises. I understand the need for many of the asylum’s treatments—but this? I cannot come to terms with this idea, nor the outcomes I have thus far borne witness to. Electricity, fed through the chair’s halo, till life is extinguished.


“And how is Old Sparky today?” He speaks to the machine, patting it almost lovingly.


I shudder and bite my lip.


All words die in my throat.


As a boy, I watched our farm animals perish in a horrible barn fire. From that day, the sickeningly sweet smell of charred flesh is seemingly ever-embedded in my nostrils and mind.


Merely staring at “Old Sparky” not only revives this phantom smell but sends an instantaneous rise of bile up my esophagus.


“You do not approve,” Gentile says. It is not a question.


“No. This is one area of practice where we diverge. I… do not believe we should have the power to… snuff life. Not in this fashion.”


Gentile nods. “I am only in agreement in extreme circumstances. The chair was Frost’s, you know this.”


“Yes. But I was under the assumption we were here to discuss ablation. Not this… contraption.”


“Indeed. Walk with me, Jonathon.” He slips a periodical into my hands, the London Medical and Surgical Journal, where I assume I will read of his justifications for “Old Sparky.” Physicks are deluded in the sense that if words appear in a coherent, bound, and published fashion, they must be true and should be replicated.


I myself am a believer in problem-solving and experience.


I follow, just now noticing a huddled group of white coats, new alienists. Their faces are so fresh, they resemble excited schoolboys
rather than newly graduated interns from the College of Physicians and Surgeons.


“No. I sawr him. I’s tellin’ you, I sawr him!” a patient wails.

The young doctor dodges—but is not quick enough.


The young woman clutches and attaches to Dr. Pembleton’s lab coat, shaking him hard enough to send his horn-rimmed spectacles sliding to the end of his pointy nose.


Though her waist is buckled to the chair, the girl halves her body like a contortionist as Pembleton struggles backward, giving a valiant effort to disentangle himself.


I step forward, and all six young coats straighten in attention, parting like the sea for Moses to grant me passage.


I stand before her, bobbing and weaving with her darting gaze. “What is it, Wilhelmina? Whom have you seen?”


Her befuddled expression clears as her eyes fixate on me. She releases Pembleton, and he immediately retreats into the protective huddle of alienists as they close ranks. They circle him like a horde protecting an injured comrade.


“Oh, Dr. Grayjoy.” She grasps my hand, and I squeeze it in return. “I sawr him. IdidIdidIdid.”


I kneel before her. “Who? Who have you seen?”


Her face drains of remaining color, her eyes flicking left and right like an animal trapped.


She leans in, our heads nearly touching—I smell ripe urine and the rot of her teeth.


“Dr. Cloud. He has returned.”

The Requiem Red
(Synesthesia Shift #1)
By Brynn Chapman
YA Historical Urban Fantasy
Hardcover, Paperback & ebook, 300 Pages
February 4, 2019 by Burns and Lea Books

Life for Patient 29 is full of medicated day dreams of a life outside the walls of Soothing Hills Asylum. But fantasies are not all that consume her. A monster roams the halls of the sanitarium she reluctantly calls home and three girls have been found dead. The dead girls share one common thread . . . each was 29’s cell mate. As the investigation gets under way, she retreats into her mind, listening to the voices that call to her. She is endowed with the cursed gift of perception. Through it, she hears messages carried upon the notes of music, discerns words hidden among the strokes of paintings, and minds pleadings for help from the corn field outside.

Could the key to the murders lie within 29’s broken mind? Mason, an orderly, does not see 29 as a lunatic and as his belief in her grows so does her self-confidence. The possibility of one day leaving the asylum seems less and less like a fantasy. But the monster has other plans for her. Leaving will not be so easy, at least not while she is alive.

Faces of Courage Epic Book Launch by Susan K. Beatty

About the Book

Book:  Faces of Courage

Author: Susan K. Beatty

Genre: Christian Woman’s Fiction

Release date: May 11, 2021

Fear strangles even the faithful sometimes.

Despite every attempt to be brave, fear has defined Olivia Stanford’s life: with each new foster home, when her adopted parents died leaving her all alone again, trusting and marrying her husband, Frank, and coping with his football injuries and career loss.

Without faith, fear only grows in the face of adversity.

When Frank becomes abusive, Olivia enters a terror-filled life in her upscale Southern California home. Common sense demands she dig deep for the courage to confront him–to demand change. Fear and confusion push back.

And just as courage finally blooms within her comes the terrifying diagnosis: breast cancer.

Some say courage is found at the intersection of faith and grit. How will Olivia manage to summon either in the midst of this new battle?

🌟BOOK EXCERPT

Faces of Courage Excerpt Six

Olivia stroked Zoe’s bangs away from her face and kissed her forehead. Her shoulders slumped. Continue to get along. For the kids. And we’ll be fine.

In the master bedroom Frank sat up against the bed pillows, his arms folded across his chest. “Tell Pastor David to impose on someone else for Bible study. I don’t want those people here anymore.”

“But, Frank—”

“You heard what I said.”

The force in Frank’s voice pushed Olivia back, her father’s voice reverberating in her head—the same hot anger, an anger that scorched her soul and often ended in a beating. Olivia slipped off her dress and hung it in the closet with a shaky arm. “Okay.” Olivia whispered, looking back at her husband through lowered lashes.

With a glare that sent heat rising up her chest, Frank snapped off his bedside light and jammed himself under the covers, turning his back to her.

Olivia’s chest and neck burned as she silently shut herself in the bathroom. Just get along. As long as we’re safe and healthy, that’s all that matters.

But where would she get the courage to keep them safe if he became violent?

SPOTLIGHT BOOKS TOUR: FEATURING BOOKS WRITTEN BY OR INSPIRED BY CANCER SURVIVORS

According to the National Cancer Institute, “In 2020, an estimated 1,806,590 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in the United States and 606,520 people will die from the disease.” It is impossible to meet someone who has not been

touched by this disease in some manner, whether it be physically or emotionally.

There are many types of cancer–so many that each month of the year is dedicated to promoting awareness of a different type. Just as cancer comes in various forms, it touches different people in various ways.

When a writer is touched by this disease, the natural reaction is to take pen to paper–or rather fingers to keyboard.

The results will surprise you! The stories are as diverse as the disease.

During the month of April, here at iRead Book Tours, we are featuring some tremendous titles written by or inspired by cancer survivors!

“This

 no-nonsense debut memoir recalls Corrigan’s two-time battle with cancer and takes a pragmatic approach toward guiding other patients. Candid, sagacious writing on illness and adaptation.” –Kirkus Reviews

 
 

A breast cancer diagnosis at forty-nine forces Christine Shields Corrigan, a wife, mom, and meticulous list-maker, to confront her deepest fears of illness, death, and loss of control as she struggles to face cancer again. From the discovery of a “junky” cyst, to chemotherapy and surgery, sleepless nights filled with rosaries and “what ifs,” and shifting family dynamics, her adult experience mirrors her teen bout with Hodgkin’s lymphoma, with one exception—she no longer has parents keeping her in the dark.
With the ghosts of cancer past hovering around her, Chris falls into the same overprotective traps her taciturn Irish-Catholic parents created, striving to keep her family’s life “normal,” when it is anything but, and soldiering through on her own, until a neighbor’s unexpected advice and gift move her to accept others’ help. With fierce honesty, poignant reflection, and good humor, Chris shares a journey filled with sorrow, grace, forgiveness, and resilience, as she winds her way through cancer for the second time. Again offers practical guidance and hope to individuals that they have the strength to forge a path beyond a diagnosis.

“IT TAKES A DIFFERENT KIND OF THINKING TO SOLVE A PROBLEM THAN THE KIND OF THINKING THAT PRODUCED THE PROBLEM.” —Albert Einstein

Jean-Jacque (JJ) had a devastating problem. At age fifty-one, he was diagnosed with

stage four cancer and given three years to live. Rather than accept that outcome, JJ did what he always does: he set out to find a solution. Desiring to look beyond traditional treatments and their often harmful side effects, he put his unconventionally wired mind to work. JJ was relentless as he investigated alternative therapies and pursued global

trailblazers in cancer research. Moving from the role of patient to patient-researcher, he became a trailblazer in his own right, being sought after for his latest findings. Ultimately, JJ brought together the most innovative international minds at the Rethinking Cancer 2017 conference in Paris. Together, they found common ground, and they continue to create integrative, synergistic approaches to treatment. Today, almost a decade after his diagnosis, JJ has defied the odds and

is cancer-free. Recently retired from his career as a commercial airline captain on the Airbus A380, he now devotes himself to sharing his ongoing research with scientists and patients. JJ’s story illustrates how looking at things differently often enables us to see them in a whole new light.

“Caroline’s story is profoundly sad, and yet hopeful, magical, and yet rooted in reality. There is magic, mystery, and daring adventure.” – BooksCoffee

Author Jeff GunhusJeff Gunhus

This

novella was written by USA Today bestselling author Jeff Gunhus after he received a devastating diagnosis of state 3 cancer. The story is a message to his five children on how to deal with grief and a plea for them to grasp onto joy and love even in the darkest of times.

Caroline loses her spark. It takes a great adventure for her to find it again.

Caroline loses her father in a car accident for which she feels responsible. Consumed by grief, she has a difficult time readjusting to a world that has changed so dramatically for her. On the anniversary of her father’s death, a strange window opens in the middle of the small lake behind her house. She climbs up an old oak to peer inside, but falls out of the tree and discovers that the window also serves as a door into a different world.

Enter Mordecai the Gand, a mysterious traveler who befriends Caroline and promises to help her find a way back home since the window she fell through has disappeared. The two set out on a series of adventures that include visiting a tree village populated by a tribe known for eating travelers, running into a witch under a spell of her own making, hiding in a cave with a dragon encased in a wall of ice (prone to melting by campfire), all the while being pursued by a mysterious entity call the Creach which promises to devour Caroline and trap her in an eternity of despair.

As they navigate these adventures and this new world, Caroline slowly discovers that she is meant to help each of the characters she meets. As she battles

internally whether to stay or return home to the sadness and grief waiting for her there, she must regain perspective and open her heart to the act of caring and to the joy of love itself. In the end, she must demonstrate great courage, loyalty, and caring as the plot unfolds, becoming the active hero of her own story.

Publisher:  Mascot Books
Release date:   Jan 5, 2021
Format available for review:  print (USA), pdf
Tour dates: Jan 5 to Feb 1, 2021
Content Rating:  G for everyone.

When asked about her motivation for writing her children’s picture book about cancer, author Eva Grayzel explains:

My children were 5 and 7 when I was diagnosed with stage IV oral cancer. It’s a disease that cannot be hidden under clothing. My caregivers were so consumed with me, we didn’t addressthe feelings of our children. I regret not seeking professional attention for them during that time, but we didn’t think of it. If my healthcare providers had recommended it, we would have followed through.

Since my voice was compromised during treatment, finding a book about understanding cancer would have been an easy solution. However, I could not find one to help start the conversation with our children.

Months after my recovery, my daughter still wouldn’t kiss me. She was intuitive, afraid of losing me and didn’t want to commit to another day of loving me. My son was shopping  with his grandma for a birthday card and he found a Get Well card. “Let’s buy this for Mom.” Grandma had to tell him that I wasn’t sick anymore.

When I reached my 10 year cancer-free anniversary, I had to mark it. There was no better way than filling the void for a children’s book to minimize fear and promote dialogue about cancer. ‘M.C. Plays Hide & Seek’ emphasizes feelings children experience and ways to address their emotions in a healthy, comfortable way. It’s everything I wished I had for my children. And, I hope it will be everything you need for yours.

In Cracking The Harmony Code, Camilla Gray-Nelson gives is what she has learned about Nature’s Surprising Secrets for Getting Along While Getting Your Way. In this book she is sharing with each of us Nature’s amazing secrets for maintaining social harmony—a harmony necessary for pursuing personal goals that require willing cooperation from others.

Through her experience the author says that: I have come to realize that despite intelligence and socialization, we humans are still members of the Animal World! Hidden deep within us seem to lurk the verysame instincts that drive and influence our dog’s behaviors and, for that matter, the behaviors of many other social mammals.

For my thoughts, I’m not sure I fully believe what she is saying here. But one thing for sure is, I will be watching animals more carefully now. Maybe I will learn something from them!

I have to say the authors influence through instinct method as she teaches readers through Nature’s Harmony Pyramid is interesting and I believe can help everyone in our relationships in our workplaces as well as with friends and family at home. The six stages she gives is something we all need to look at in our own lives. Not only in relationships but in achieving our personal goals. I found this pyramid an interesting way to look at these issues. It’s all laid out there for us. I challenge you to pick up a copy of this book and read it for yourself. If everyone climbs this pyramid and the teachings along the way, we can help our world be a better place.

Night Fall

by Nancy Mehl

Now that Alexandra “Alex” Donavan is finally free of her troubled upbringing, she’s able to live out her childhood dream of working for the FBI. But soon after she becomes a member of the FBI’s elite Behavioral Analysis Unit, authorities in Kansas and Missouri contact them about bodies found on freight trains traveling across the country–all killed in the same way.

Alex never expected to be forced to confront her past in this new job, but she immediately recognizes the graffiti messages the killer is leaving on the train cars. When the BAU sends her to gather information about the messages from her aunt in Wichita, Kansas, Alex is haunted by the struggles she thought she’d left behind forever.

In a race against time to solve the case while battling her own weaknesses, Alex must face how far she’ll go–and what she’s willing to risk–to put a stop to the Train Killer

Read an excerpt:

Four murders. Only a week or two between each one, and they all look random. Nothing about the victims is similar—as if our UNSUB is selecting whoever is in the wrong place at the wrong time. Three men, one woman. Two Caucasian, one Black, and one Hispanic. Three of them younger, one in his seventies. All the bodies were discovered on trains and were stabbed multiple times.”

They could hear him take a deep breath before going on. “Unusual tags on the outside of the boxcars. Something like Bible verses, but we’ve searched several Bible apps to find them, and they’re not in any version we could locate. We’re not sure what the UNSUB is trying to tell us. He signed his work, but we have no idea what the initials TM mean. His name? Or something else?”

There was a slight pause. “I’m sending you some photos of the tags right now, along with everything else we’ve got, which isn’t much. We don’t have any real evidence. This guy is careful . . . and smart. At this point, we’re not in charge. He is. Have your team look over this information before they get here, okay? I’ll expect them at the command post in the morning. We’re setting it up now. Does that work for you?”

“They’ll be there, Stephen. Talk to you soon.”

The call done, Jeff turned on his laptop and pulled up the information Barstow had just emailed. He sent the file to a large screen on the wall and began slowly clicking through the photos.

In mere seconds, Alex felt like all the blood in her body had frozen, as if time itself had come to a halt. Her mind couldn’t seem to process what she was seeing.

How could this be happening?

I love Nancy Mehl’s books and though I haven’t read any for a while, I jumped at the opportunity to read and review this one. This story is pretty predictable, though the author did her magic and kept me reading. I wanted to find out where Adam was. If he was following the police and FBI knowing their every move. I enjoyed these intense character and I love Alex. She isgraffiti messages such a caring person and came from and very horrific life. She did so well being the person she is now, especially from the life she lived. When she let’s her team know she recognized the messages left on the train they all run out to see if they could chase him down. I enjoyed this journey very much as the KCPD and the FBI tried to find answers and what was really in the mind of Adam, the killer. Nancy Mehl writes a riveting tale that will capture you heart and keep it for a reminder to Kross Zagros

If you enjoy a mixture of mystery, suspense and thrills this is the book for you. 

One thing I was not to happy about is the mention of Covid19. It’s just to personal right now, people we know have lost their lives and this is not for a fiction book, this is real life. Real hurting people.

 An now an Interview with Robert J. Emery, Author   

When did you first begin writing?

Quite young, actually. In my early teens I enjoyed writing short stories. I had no idea why, I just did, little stories about my dog, or something that happened at school. Most were no longer than a hand-written page or two. I was very fortunate to have a couple of teachers along the way who would read them and encourage me to keep writing. After serving four years in the Air Force—a chunk of it with Armed Forces Radio & TV—I pursued my dream; a career in the motion picture industry, which led to my writing and directing both feature films and television productions. In 2006, I retired and begin writing both fiction and non-fiction books, something I had always wanted to do, but never had the time for. To separate myself from my non-fiction work, I adapted the pen name R. J. Eastwood, my initials, for my novels.

Your current novel, Midnight Black, is an expanded version of Midnight Black – the Purge. Why did you decide to revise and expand the original book?

Midnight Black – The Purge, was about a near future society paying dearly for the mistakes made by earlier societies. It won The International Review of Books Bronze Award. The story unfolds through the eyes of the protagonist, who, having committed a crime of revenge, is released on parole to a society on the verge of collapse. When writing the original, I had no idea we were about to face extreme political polarization, the pandemic, the Black Lives Matter protests, and all that followed that effected the entire world. I was compelled to revise and expand the story to include these events. I completed the expanded version in February of 2021 and titled it simply Midnight Black.

In writing both versions did you do much research?

Yes. From the very beginning, I wanted all events to either have actually happened, or at least be believable that such events could have happened. I wanted readers to be able to relate to what my protagonist found when he’s returned to society, and how he becomes involved in the wildest conspiracy he could have ever imagined. As I like to say, the story pulls no punches and takes no prisoners.

Prior to Midnight Black, you wrote the award-winning sci-fi novel, The Autopsy of Planet Earth. How do you choose your stories? 

I think anyone who writes fiction writes about what interests them. In the case of The Autopsy of Planet Earth, I have always believed that one day we will discover that we are not alone in the Universe. So, I wrote about what a first-contact might be like and how that encounter with humans evolves. That novel was well received and won five book awards. My hope is that I live long enough to see the day when we do come face-to-face with alien life.

When it came to Midnight Black, I wanted to explore how we humans all too often fail to react to challenges that affect our lives until it is too late and we suffer the consequences.

Are you at work on a new novel?

Yes, I’m working on a novel titled Prodigal Icon. It is about a shy young man who discovers he has an extraordinary singing voice that eventually propels him to unbelievable world fame and fortune. That’s about as much as I want to reveal. I hope to have the book ready for publication in 2022.

What are your writing habits?

I try to be writing each morning no later than 9:30 and 10:00. By 3:30 or 4:00 in the afternoon I’m brain dead so I quit for the day. Once I begin a new book, this is my 7-day a week routine. You might say I’m a bit compulsive.

Do you outline your stories ahead of writing?

No. Once I have the story firmly in my head, I know how the it begins and how I want it to end. I don’t usually have any characters in mind other than my protagonist. I just begin writing and take the story wherever it takes me, and the other characters just fall in line as I go. I find that I often surprise myself along the way. For me, it is a freeing and fun way to create and write.

Do you ever suffer from writer’s block?

Sure, but I’ve found a way around it. My office is on the second floor of our townhouse. A few feet away from my desk is a second-floor outdoor deck. If I hit a blind spot when writing, I simply get up, go out on the deck and sit and think. I never fail to find a solution.

What advice might you give someone who has never written a novel, but wants to.

I love to say, comedy is easy, writing is hard. Staring at a blank page can be frightening. But you just have to start typing and not worry about whether it’s good or bad, just write. Eventually, you’ll go back and clean it up. This was a hard lesson for me to learn. When I wrote my first novel, I wanted every line to be pitch-perfect as I went, which means I spent a lot of time trying to perfect each line, each sentence, each paragraph, instead of concentrating on getting the story down, then and only then going back and beginning the editing process. I’m better at it now, but sometimes I still toil over a line or two before moving on.

Any final thoughts?

I am very fortunate to have had a successful career in film and TV production, and upon retiring, to have begun a second career writing. How cool is that? If anyone is interested, they can read more about my past and present careers as well as my blog at http://www.robertjemeryauthor.com.

Tour and Giveaway for Matchmakers Best Friend by Kari Trumbo

About the Book

Book:  Matchmaker’s Best Friend

Author: Kari Trumbo

Genre: Christian Contemporary Romance

Release date: March 30, 2021

“You’re just like a brother to me. I don’t like you in that way.”

When they dated ten years ago as teens, it almost destroyed their friendship. So Pen Reese did the only logical thing.  She lied about how she felt—and still feels—about him.

She’s still paying for that lie.

A brilliant plan to set Mike and a friend up and get over him has one problem.

It’s breaking her heart.

When Pen pushed him away, Mike Gaines assumed she just didn’t understand his faith. People like her persnickety aunt even claim he’s part of a cult—ridiculous, but it’s true. Still, if she wants him to play the part of a big brother, fine. At least he can stay close this way.

At first, Pen’s attempt to set him up with one of her close friends hurts. But what if it’s the perfect opportunity to show her what she’s missing if she sees him with someone else?

In this friends-to-more-meets-second-chance romance, The Matchmaker’s Best Friend continues the Elnora Island romances of the Independence Islands Series featuring five islands, six authors, and a boatload of happily-ever-afters.
The Independence Islands Series: beach reads aren’t just for summer anymore.

About the Author

Where western meets happily ever after.

Kari writes swoony heroes and places that become characters with detail and heart.
Her favorite place to write about is the place her heart lives, (even if she doesn’t) South Dakota.

Kari loves reading, listening to contemporary Christian music, singing when no one’s listening, and curling up near the wood stove when winter hits. She makes her home in central Minnesota, land of frigid toes and mosquitoes the size of compact cars, with her husband of over twenty years. They have two daughters, two sons, one cat, and one hungry wood stove.

Pen Reese thinks that if Mike could find someone else? So she plans a fake wedding, including Mike and another friend to show of her wedding planner skills but can she do this? Can she watch Mike marry someone else, even though it’s fake. This sets off a whole different line of feelings that suddenly has her world falling apart before her eyes.

Matchmaker’s Best Friend is a part of the Elnora Island romances of the Independence Islands Series featuring five islands, six authors, and a boatload of happily-ever-afters. And a bigger part of The Independence Islands Series. Each of these books have been so much fun. I love how six different authors writes their own story that fits so well with the series. In Matchmaker’s Best Friend, Kari Trumbo writes Pen and Mike’s story. I love the characters in this book, both characters we have grown to love as well as the new people. And their development throughout the story unfolds more interest and excitement to the story. Trumbo does and excellent job writing this story that fits so well with the series, a story that I thoroughly enjoyed. I will be looking for more of Kari Trumbo’s book as this series continue.

More from Kari

Pen is Mightier than the Sword

Especially in sparkly, stacked espadrilles and pink power suit. Don’t let Pen Reese’s pink façade fool you, she’s a businesswoman to the core, with a heart of gold. She has built a party planning business from the ground up, and she’s about to create another.

Pen is one of those characters that I could just see CLEARLY as I was writing. She is about ninety percent Elle Woods from Legally Blonde and ten percent a close personal friend. I heard her voice in my head. I could hear her talking as I wrote the book. Her personality was perfect for the energetic party planner.

I’m sure if I put a character description up without context or clarity many people wouldn’t want to read the book, they would write Pen off as shallow. But she’s not. She’s heartbroken.

Do you still remember your first love? Maybe you still care for them? Pen fell hard for her first love and no matter how professional she is or how many lavish weddings she plans, she can’t forget the one wedding she’ll never get to create. Her own.

Pen thinks that if Mike falls for someone else, goes off and gets married, she’ll finally be able to move on. So, she sets a plan in motion. That’s when her world completely falls apart and you see the tender parts of Pen that she doesn’t show to just anybody.

She is a very complex character and I hope she touches you like she touched me.

I hope you enjoy Pen’s tale of matchmaking gone wrong.

Tour and Giveaway for The Tiger Like Me by Kelsey Lee

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Children’s

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

The Tiger Like Me is the story of a brave young girl who dares to be different. Following the call of her adventurous spirit, she encounters inspiring creatures of the jungle who remind her to face her fears, recognize the beauty of the present moment, and to walk the path less traveled.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Excerpt:

Day by day we use our voice, not only for noise but for speaking our choice. 

Night by night, we move through fear; we know this is how to pioneer. Beyond our worry, the way shines clear, and the thoughts that limit us, soon disappear.

We are all diverse, yet one and the same. No matter the challenge, break the chain. Shine like a star to be who you are.

Raise your voice with vigour, to see your potential grow bigger. This is your gift, so be as you are. If you forget your way, then look to the stars.30

In the darkness of night, shoot for the moon. Always remember, the light returns soon.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I love this cute book. Abhi is different than other girls, even her many sisters. While her sisters sit around the house doing nothing but playing games and boring stuff, Abhi would rather be out on an adventurous trail trying to find interesting and fun things to do. One day Anhi’s sisters dared her to go into the jungle, deep into the trees and not to come out until they told her too, or she would be weak. So off Abhi goes deep deep into the jingle where she meets all of the jungle animals. The Tiger was her best friend because he talked and wasn’t scary. She also met other animals that didnt scare her.

I like Abhi and though I wouldn’t be as brave as she was, I sure did enjoy going on the jungle journey with her. This is such a special book to teach children to tackle their fears head on. It also teaches children that it is ok to be different. Just because everyone wants to do different things, it ok for each child to be him/her. Be just like you are. Don’t change because someone else wants you too. This is what to remember as children. This cute book needs to be in every classroom and every elementary school library because all children need to hear this. And they will all love the sweet pictures

A special thanks to the author/publisher for a copy of this book. I am not required to write a positive review, the opinions here are mine alone. I am disclosing this with my review in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.

About the Author

Award-winning author Caryl McAdoo prays her story brings God glory, and her best-selling stories—over fifty-five published—delight Christian readers around the world. The prolific writer also enjoys singing the new songs the Lord gives her; you may listen at YouTube. Sharing four children and nineteen grandsugars (three greats), Caryl and Ron (her high-school-sweetheart-husband of over fifty years) live in the woods south of Clarksville, seat of Red River County in far Northeast Texas. The McAdoos wait expectantly for God to open the next door.

I always enjoy read a new book from Caryl McAdoo and this is a sweet interesting one to read. Enoch and Gus go on a cattle drive, thinking this was it. This is their time to shine and strike out on their own. But they were surprised at what they really found. And it changed their lives.

I really enjoyed Gus and Enoch and their journey on their cattle drive. There’s a lot to do on those drives, a lot to learn. I’ve read several book involving these drives and I never get tired of them because they are all unique in their own way. With these two guys, they meet up with Calli, Vi and the sweet and adorablelittle Bella. The ladies had been attack and Gus and Enoch want to help them. But spending so much time together they started feeling the attraction. And can they fall in love and still do the things their parents expect of them? They sure have a lot of decisions to make. I love these characters and enjoyed this journey so much. And I really appreciate how McAdoo weaves the Christian life into the lives of her characters, making them seem so realistic. This book is set in the mid 1800’s, so if you enjoy historical fiction, you will love this one. Texas Trails gets Five Stars from me!

More from Caryl

Get along little doggie!

TEXAS TRAILS is the sixth novel in the Cross Timbers Family Saga series. I’d never written much about being on a cattle drive and thought it would be great fun. Back in the Texas Romance Family Saga series, Charley Nightingale made several trips to Kansas with a herd and took his son Nathaniel, but I skipped over the actual drive part.

Readers first met co-hero Enoch Lowell in QUINCY & PRISCILLA then got to know him better in DUPLICITY At The Lowell House when his best friend Gus Hale (TEXAS TRAIL’s other co-hero) is introduced. Both those stories are set in 1866. For TEXAS TRAILS, it’s three years later, and Enoch is ready to declare himself a man and start earning his own way. Driving a bunch of cows up to Kansas sounds like the ticket to cut his mother’s apron strings and earn some dollars in the process.

The son of Morgan and Charity O’Neal Lowell (LEAVING TEXAS, book four) and grandson of Liberty O’Neal Harrell (GONE TO TEXAS, book one) talks Gus into going with him, and as partners, they start building a herd. All the while, Charity is pitching a fit as her plan for her firstborn includes Harvard University.

One thing I loved about this story is that Morgan sets it up—behind the scenes of course—for trusted men to take in his son and Gus on their trail drive. Enters the infamous Texas Ranger Levi Baylor (Texas Romance Family Saga book two HEARTS STOLEN) and the boy he reared as his own (grown now), Charley Nightingale!

I already love those two men from my earlier Texas Romance Family Saga series—just as my readers do—and totally relished their appearance in this story! Revisiting old beloved friends brings great joy to this author, in real life and my fictitious world!! I adore crossing these characters over the two series!

So many things are apt to happen out on the prairie that cowboys never expect. There are rivers to cross and the natives to deal with, some who pose real danger to life and limbs! Cows birth calves, storms descend, and herds stampede, but that’s not all that can make a cowboy’s days rough. Enoch’s and Gus’s lives are definitely changed forever on the out there on the trail.

I’m thinking if I were a younger woman, I would totally enjoy going along on their cattle drive! How about you?

Tour and Giveaway for To Every Page a Turning: One’s Life Journey by Carl Buccellato

Join us for this tour from Apr 12 to Apr 23, 2021!

Book Details:

Book Title:  to Every Page a Turning: One’s Life Journey by Carl Buccellato
Category:  Adult Fiction (18+), 184 pages
Genre:  Historical Novel, Adult
Publisher:  Mascot
Release date:   April 2021
Content Rating:  This book is rated PG. Content not suitable for young children.

Book Description:

Each man who journeys through life must travel through its season and ultimate lessons. For some, the journey is brief, and their life’s light is fleeting. They are like rockets that flare to the heavens, glowing brightly only to go black in the next instant. Still others travel what

seem to be an abbreviated journey, missing some of life’s seasons, never knowing the agony or the ecstasy of what they have missed. But some live each season, taste each tear, relish each sunrise, and brace themselves against each burst of wind. They have traveled life’s highways and finally joined the many pieces of themselves into the whole person they were born to be.

When a man is clearing old files out from his garage, he comes across a folder containing an old

manuscript he wrote twenty years previously as part of his recovery therapy. It had served as a catharsis for him to help transition old painful issues from his past. He was still a young man when he wrote the words, and as a senior in his seventies, he begins to reflect on his life s journey. As he reads the old papers, many memories come flooding back. He begins to find that our lives are like pages turning from oneplace in our lives to another, each unique, holding treasures and pains of its own, and each a window to growth, learning, and acceptance of who we are and who we were born to be.

In this novel, the journey begins in the innocence of America in the 1950s. Traveling through hope, a great cause, disenchantment, hopelessness, discovery, and rebirth, the novel also recounts the travel of a generation as they move through time. As you read the pages of this book, you will discover a man perhaps not unlike yourself, seeking knowledge, peace, and faith. Perhaps you, like he, have traveled through the paradigm shift of the twentieth century both in awe and fear of what lies ahead.

Meet the Author:

Carl Buccellato was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1942, and is of Italian-American descent. As a young man, he was eager to get out into the world and explore the boundaries of his hometown. Although he had a love for fishing at Coney Island Pier and singing Do Wop on the corners with friends, he knew there was much more of the world to see on the other side of the Brooklyn Bridge. One of his first jobs as a teenager in New York City was working for Western Union as a messenger. It didn’t take Carl long to own the streets of the Big Apple. As he went from building to building on his bicycle delivering his envelopes, little did he know what his fate would become years later.

With a lot of hard work, perseverance, and God’s grace, a day would come when Carl would become the CEO of a publicly traded company and ink a multimillion-dollar deal in the board room of AIG, then the largest insurance company in America. In his early years, he earned a BA and MBA, married, and started a family. Today, Carl has four children and several grandchildren and great-grandchildren carrying on the family legacy.

Through the years, he started several companies and has served on several Boards of Directors, including private and public companies, as well as serving on the Board of Trustees of St. Thomas University. Carl’s career has taken him literally all over the world. In the 80s and 90s he was a regular monthly contributor to a BBC broadcast in England. In 1986, Inc. Magazine featured his firm as the 12th fastest growing independent company in America. In 1984, Carl was invited to become a member of the Presidential Council of 100. This group of business leaders advised the President of the United States on several sectors of the economy and business issues. Carl served three different presidents during his time on the council: presidents Reagan, Bush, and Clinton. Throughout his career and travels, Carl has met a broad array of different people. Some, down on their luck, some at the pinnacle of their careers and personal lives. Many of the people and their stories left a mark on Carl’s heart and mind. It is from some of these encounters that Carl has drawn inspiration for a few of the fictitious characters in this novel.

Today, Carl resides in Coral Springs, Florida, with his wife Mary Ellen. She is an award-winning multimedia artist and speaker. Together, Carl and Mary Ellen love traveling the globe and looking for new inspiration for their gifts and talents given to them by their loving God.

Tour and Giveaway for Courage in the Mountain Wilderness by Misty M. Beller

Courage in the Mountain

About the Book

Book:  Courage in the Mountain Wilderness

Author: Misty M. Beller

Genre: Christian Historical Romance

Release date: April 6, 2021

Courage in the Mountain WIlderness

Keeping her son safe on this epic journey may be harder than she imagined.

Caleb Jackson is on a journey. And not just the mission he and his friends have embarked on to fetch the Nez Perce chief’s runaway daughter. Maybe someday, he could also find God’s plan for his life. He’d once thought being a small town minister was the Lord’s will for him, but he’d proved a failure at living under the scrutiny of his congregation. Yet the chief’s niece and her feisty toddler accompanying them on this expedition make him feel like he might be able to make a difference yet.

Otskai is eager to take on a challenge. She’s lived under the shelter of other’s choices her entire life, especially when she was betrothed to one of the village braves at the tender age of eight. Now with her husband dead, she’s finally found the freedom she always craved—even with a two-year-old to raise. She’s built her camas root harvest into a thriving trade to provide all she and her son need and more, yet she can’t seem to keep her active child safe. When she agrees to accompany her new friends on a trip to bring back her wayward cousin, she knows she’ll have her hands full managing her boy.

The journey turns out nothing like Otskai expects, and for the first time in her life, she’s thankful to have others around to help. Especially Caleb, whose gentle attentions captivate her son and occupy him for hours at a time. But as the danger escalates and her worst fears come to light, she must find the courage to choose between freedom and a love more liberating than she imagined possible.

From a USA Today bestselling author comes another epic journey through breathless landscapes and adventure so intense, lives will never be the same.

About the Author

Misty M. Beller photo

Misty M. Beller is a USA Today bestselling author of romantic mountain stories, set on the 1800s frontier and woven with the truth of God’s love.

She was raised on a farm in South Carolina, so her Southern roots run deep. Growing up, her family was close, and they continue to keep that priority today. Her husband and children now add another dimension to her life, keeping her both grounded and crazy.

God has placed a desire in Misty’s heart to combine her love for Christian fiction and the simpler ranch life, writing historical novels that display God’s abundant love through the twists and turns in the lives of her characters.

I love Misty Beeler books and have had the honor if reading most of them. Courage in the Mountain Wilderness is another awesome read from Beeler. This is Caleb and Otskai’s story, and it is nothing but intriguing and interesting. Otskai is a strong and determined woman and enjoys her new freedom as a widow. She has been able to find a chore that has enabled her to provide. For she and her small.son well. And Caleb is one of my favorite characters with his caring heart. Ms. Beeler creates characters that are loveable and believable and the quickly stole my heart once again. The hardships these people faced on their journey is horrific, but they all do their part to help survive. It aways amazes me how Beeler comes up with such details in her stories. Taking her characters into the most horrific side of mountain and wilderness life. And this book is no different. I enjoyed learning more about this part of the world through her stories. If you haven’t read one of Misty Beeler’s books you don’t know what you are missing. This is a great one to start with.

More from Misty

Mom Guilt—it’s real, no matter what your race or tribe.

One of the things I love about writing the Call of the Rockies series is the cast of characters that covers almost more races than I can count on all my fingers! From Spaniards, to Frenchman, to Southern Americans, to Blackfoot, to Nez Perce, to Salish, to Shoshone. And let’s not talk about the various sectors within some of the tribes (Peigan Blackfoot, Blood Blackfoot, Pikunin of the Nez Perce…oops, we weren’t going to talk about those!).

But what I love the most about so many people groups represented is learning how much we really are alike, down deep in our cores! Sure, some are introverts, some are extroverts. Some like to swim, some hate to swim. Some like to cook, some like to play with the kids (okay, maybe most like to play with the kids!).

Yet there are common threads that connect us all. As I was writing Courage in the Mountain Wilderness, I discovered a new thread that I have in common with Otskai, the Nez Perce hero of the story.

Mom guilt.

Yep. Our situations are a little different—I’m married with four kiddos, and she’s widowed with one very energetic two-year-old son. But we both struggle with that same push and pull. That same set of conflicting longings. When I’m with my kiddos, sometimes I just desperately want time alone. Time to actually get things done. But then at night when they snuggle close at bedtime, wrapping their sweet arms around my neck and not just saying, but showing, how much they love me, I can’t imagine how I could ever want to do anything but spend time with these sweet little ones God has trusted me with.

Thus, the guilt.

Maybe Otskai and I are the only ones who’ve ever experienced that particular strain of Mom Guilt. But I’ll bet there are other ways you can relate—both to these very real fictional characters who may or may not be the same race as you. And also to the very real real-life characters you meet every day.

The great news is that God loves each and every one of us, Mom Guilt and all.

I have really come to love the Harlequin Heartwarming line of sweet and clean romance stories and A Marriage of Inconvenience is one of the best. Sometimes marriage of inconvenience works out, sometimes it does not. In this book, before the bride even got married there were problems! Sophia and Evan meet at a bank robbery of all places. But when Evan shows up for Sophia to plan his wedding, we’ll, so much for the love at first sight.

This was such a fun book to read. With all of the ins and outs, Twista and turns and everything else going on, it was for sure a story that kept me turning the pages. I had to get to the end fast to see how the story would turn out. This is the last book in Amy Vastine’s Stop That Wedding Series and I’m going to miss these fun reads. I enjoyed the characters in this book so much. Sophia was a feisty strong woman that could overcome whatever life hit her with, which was a good thing with the surprises in this book. I love her grandmother, and the firm foundation she brings to the story. I love the way Vastine weaves everything together to create a wonderful ending to the book and to the series. I will be looking for more from her in the future. This one gets a Five Stars from me.

Tour and Giveaway for Blood of the Dragonfly by Hawk MacKinney

Join us for this tour from Apr 12 to Apr 30, 2021!

Book Details:

Book Title:  Blood of the Dragonfly ( The Moccasin Hollow Mystery Series – Book V)
Author:  Hawk MacKinney
Category:  Adult Fiction (18+), 227 pages
Genre:  Mystery/Suspense
Publisher:  Sage Words Publishing
Release date:  Feb 2021
Content Rating:  PG. There are graphic death scenes.

Book Description:

While dangling a fishing hook from his flat bottom skiff before dawn, former SEAL-turned-PI Craige Ingram spots grey-black smoke coiling above the treetops across the river in the direction of the Georgia bayous and Corpsewood Manor. Bayou or bogs, fire in the uncut cypress and pines bodes a sense that the river is no barrier to the fire that threatens his ancestral home, Moccasin Hollow. Neither are the bodies later found in the burned mansion of Corpsewood Manor. Craige wastes no time in helping his ex-SEAL buddy Lt. Graysen MacGerald who is now Head of Buckingham Homicide Investigations by unofficially investigating the bodies and an exquisite dragonfly brooch found in the mansion with a reputation for evil, hauntings, and mystery.

untitleddesign_1_original-18

Blood of the Dragonfly by Hawk MacKinney centers around a fire that ended up taking out a bigger part of the Corpsewood Manor, along with bodies found in the burned mansion. Former Navy SEAL-turned-PI Craige Ingram along with his buddy, Head of Buckingham Homicide Investigation Lt. Graysen MacGerald is immediately on the case to find the reasoning behind the burned bodies, as well as who started the fire in the first place.

Craige Ingram is the person to follow as he starts the journey of solving the crime. A lot of things are happening in this story, many twists and turns that will keep you guessing. MacKinney does a really nice job choosing characters that develop well throughout the story. Lots of ups and downs and tension flowing around. Blood of the Dragonfly is a very well written book, the first book I have read by Hawk MacKinney, and I look forward to reading more. If suspense is what you enjoy, this would be a great choice for you.

And now an interesting interview with  Author Hawk MacKinney

What advice would you give budding writers?

The world is full of naysayers and can’t and no. Don’t listen. Trust yourself. Talk to the person in the mirror. Trust your feelings -AND- keep writing, keep your notes, keep your journals. Those are part of your soul.

What is the last book you’ve read?

The biography of Bernadine Eugénie Désirée Clary – Napoleon’s fiancée who he jilted. She later wedded French General Jean Baptiste Bernadotte. Elected to carry the crown of Sweden, the couple founded the Bernadotte Dynasty – to this day on the throne of Sweden. And naysayers say history isn’t romantic! What a saga!

What made you write a romance novel?

Moccasin Trace is really volume one of the Moccasin Hollow Mystery Series, but it introduces the historical founding bloodlines of the serial protagonist and supporting characters in my contemporary series, Moccasin Hollow Mysteries. Strong females! Great setting and plot and great fun!

How did you come up with this idea?

I wanted to lay the groundwork of how history and upbringing can influence the direction one’s life takes, the decisions and beliefs at stake, and how one holds to the core that makes us individuals.

In today’s tech savvy world, most writers use a computer or laptop. Have you ever written pen to paper?

All the time, especially my instant notes. Computers are great for rewrites/editing. They save tons of time, but scrambling words into sentences/paragraphs/chapters etc. etc., drags in all the notes/feelings etc.
