#MFRWHooks “I miss my little family.” #99c #amreading #NewRelease #MFRWOrg #OneClick

Happy Wednesday everyone.
I’d like to introduce you to book 2 in the Alinta Bay series
TELL IT TO MY HEART
which is now available on AMAZON for 99c .
I hope you’ll enjoy today’s “hook”.

Today’s Hook:

“Yes. And I’ll ask her for the huge favour to give me the keys for next door.”
“Why?” Kristen wanted to know.
“I might be able to stay there for the next couple of days,” Molly explained. “At least until the house goes on the market. The lovely Mrs. Fielding passed away two days ago. I’m sure it’ll take a while until people get the house on the market. Gives me enough time to find someone to fix this house.”
She took a sip of the coffee, taking in the rich flavour on her tongue and enjoying the way it warmed her up. The warmth spreading through her body was a comfort as well.
Bewilderment spread across Kristen’s face. “You can’t just stay at the stranger’s house, especially not somebody who has just died.”
Molly thought about it for a moment before she hitched one shoulder in a shrug. “Worth a try.” She took a big bite of the croissant and with a full mouth, she murmured, “I miss her.”
“Eliza Fielding?”
Molly nodded.
Kristen patted Molly’s hand. “How are you holding up?”
Another shrug. “I’m trying not to give in to the memories, but sometimes it’s really hard. I miss my little family.” She swiped her hand across her eyes and stood. “We’d better get moving before it gets too hot.”

BLURB:

Confronted with the choice to care for his friend’s family on the other side of the world or to return to Alinta Bay to be with his own newfound family, how will Noah choose?

Following the death of his grandmother, Noah Fielding returns to Alinta Bay and the first thing — or person — he finds is the next-door neighbour in his nan’s bathroom — naked no less. Still jetlagged, he doesn’t hit it off with Molly at first. Yet, over the next few weeks, as his past uncovers itself bit by bit, she becomes is anchor, his friend, and his lover.

Molly Reid had the world at her feet, happily married with a young son … until a tragic car accident took everything away from her. With her heart broken, she moves to Alinta Bay to escape the memories of the past. Her peaceful existence, however, is interrupted after a heavy storm floods her house and she temporarily moves into her recently deceased neighbour’s house next door.

When Noah’s friend and partner goes missing during a routine flight, Noah returns to Alaska to help, but will he come back for Molly?

 “This blood-pumping novel will keep the reader hooked until the very end.” InD’tale Magazine

“Do yourself a favor and grab a copy of this wonderful book and fall in love.” (5 star review)

Mat is a sexy, tattooed New Zealander with a strong sense of family and duty and Tiffany is a woman with a past that continues to haunt her. Can Mat help her overcome her demons and move on with the next phase of her life? Come for the romance and stay for the breathtaking scenery. (5 star review)

4 stars – NEW BEGINNINGS is a very emotional read, one that is heartwarming as well as heart wrenching. It gives you hope in the act of human kindness and that good things do happen to good people. I highly recommend this book.

#SnippetSunday “Aren’t you a little overdramatic?” #Romancebooks #love #amwriting


This is still the story set in Tasmania, Leonie’s attempt to travel around the beautiful Australian state. Today’s snippet is in Alex’s POV.
Enjoy ♥

“I’ll be heading to Binalong tomorrow,” he explained as he stood.
Yet, instead of going to his childhood room, he (Alex) reached for the dog leash in the hall for a walk with his parents’ German shepherd.
“Come on Kaiser. Still light enough to enjoy a nice walk.”
The dog wagged his tail in excitement, making in hard for Alex to hook up the leash. He chuckled.
“I’m taking Kaiser to the foreshore.”
Hans came into the hall. “Are you okay, son?”
Still kneeling next to Kaiser and padding the dog, Alex shook his head. “I’m okay. You know I come here for peace and quiet. If Mum is right, I might head into a storm in Binalong.” He stood. “Was I wrong to offer the house to Leonie?”
A slow smile spread across his father’s smile. “Aren’t you a little overdramatic? It was the right thing to offer Leonie the house. Of course it was. She needed a little help and you’ve been able to give it to her.” He scratched the back of his neck. “As for Jenny, she’s always had a crush on you. But that doesn’t mean there’ll be a storm.” A chuckle escaped his lips. “As I said, that’s an exaggeration.”
“Dad—”
“Have a think about it and sit on it a day or two. I’m sure Jenny will enjoy Leonie’s company. It’s most likely what Jenny needs at the moment.”
Alex blew out a breath before he gave a slow nod in agreement.
“Now go and get the boy some exercise before he passes out with over excitement.”

#BlogTour “Keep Forever” by @AlexaKingaard ~ @XpressoTours

Keep Forever
Alexa Kingaard
Published by: Acorn Publishing
Publication date: March 28th 2020
Genres: Historical Romance, Women’s Fiction

“Unlike some war stories that focus on intense, harsh and graphic depictions of post-combat trauma, this tale unfolds gently, like an Edna Ferber novel, spread across many decades, detailing the impact this soldier’s illness has on an entire family, including children and grandchildren. KEEP FOREVER is a wonderful, emotionally satisfying read that I highly recommend. ”
GARY SEIGEL, author of “Haskell Himself”

Paul O’Brien’s idyllic childhood in Southern California comes to a halt when his mother dies in the summer before his senior year of high school and a very different persona of his father emerges – isolating himself inside the house, turning to alcohol for comfort, and barely noticing his only child. Simultaneously, the war in Vietnam is sending shock waves around the world and young men from one coast to the other are being called upon to serve. Paul enlists in the Marines before receiving his draft notice.

Elizabeth Sutton is eager to gain some independence from her father’s old fashioned notions and looking forward to her first year in high school. At fifteen years old, tragedy strikes with the loss of both parents in an auto accident, turning her childhood into one of responsibility and worry overnight. The four siblings are scattered when her nine-year-old twin sisters are sent to live with their Aunt and Uncle on Nantucket Island, and Elizabeth is left behind in Boston with their grandmother. Her older brother, Sam, enlists in the Marines, eager to join the conflict a world away as opposed to dealing with the one unfolding at home.

A bond develops between Paul and Sam in Vietnam, and both are injured in a bloody battle that costs Sam his right hand and sets the stage for a lifetime of nightmares and sleepless nights for Paul. Matched by similar tragedies at a young age, Elizabeth and Paul’s first introduction by Sam upon their return from Vietnam is the beginning of friendship and love that survives five decades.

After marrying, welcoming their first child, and inheriting a small beach house, the couple adapts to their new surroundings, but distant memories of Vietnam continue to haunt Paul. In an era when veterans refuse to speak of their pain and the government denies that thousands of soldiers are coming home irreparably damaged, he is left to deal with the challenge of caring for his loved ones amidst his his erratic flashback episodes and moods. As their lives unravel from the lingering effects of PTSD, Elizabeth learns to accept the burden that Paul brought home, and together they make their own memories to keep forever.

Inspired By  A True Story

#BlogTour “Sheridan Hendley Mystery Books” by Christa Nardi – @SDSXXTours @ChristaN7777

A Sheridan Hendley Mystery Book 1
by Christa Nardi
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Sometimes you need to be careful what you wish for.
Pretty much settled into her new home in Appomattox with Brett and his daughter, Sheridan longs for something to keep her busy. That is, until Maddie and her new friend are framed for theft and murder. Not quite the distraction she had hoped for, but she’ll turn over every rock to prove their innocence. In the process, she learns about the powerful Buchanan family and the history of the local community. Will the truth come out before the person calling the shots takes Sheridan and Maddie out of the picture?
A Sheridan Hendley Mystery Book 2
An abandoned house, an abundance of dogs. And a dead body or two.
Sheridan Hendley’s volunteer position at Pets and Paws takes a new turn when more than twenty malnourished dogs are found at a rundown house on the outskirts of town. When the body of an elderly woman is found amidst mountains of clutter in the house, a search of the property leads to startling revelations. And another body. While Herman Stoneham’s death is deemed natural causes, his wife’s is not. Where did all the dogs come from and who’s responsible for Justine’s untimely death? Are the two connected? With dogs and murder at stake, Sheridan can’t help but get involved in the investigation.
A Sheridan Hendley Mystery Book 3

A touch of nostalgia, a murder, and good friends.
When a former colleague is implicated in his neighbor’s demise, Sheridan Hendley returns to Cold Creek to prove his innocence. Annoying as Max can be, she can’t imagine the quirky professor is capable of murder. Unfortunately, not everyone shares her opinion. Of course, it doesn’t help that Max threatened his neighbor in a public place soon before the man was murdered. Or that the victim’s drug shipments had a habit of turning up on Max’s doorstep.
Christa Nardi is an accomplished author of cozy mysteries. Christa’s background is in higher education and psychology, much as her protagonist, Sheridan Hendley in the Cold Creek mystery series. She has always loved mysteries – reading them, writing them, and solving them. Christa is a member of Sisters in Crime.

Happy Wednesday everyone.
I’d like to introduce you to book 2 in the Alinta Bay series
TELL IT TO MY HEART
which is now available on AMAZON for 99c .
I hope you’ll enjoy today’s “hook”.

Today’s Hook:

Kristen rolled her eyes. “You do know you’re supposed to clean the gutter before the rain, right?”
“I’m grateful for the coffee. I’m grateful for the croissant. But I’m really not in the mood for any lectures, Kristen.”
Her friend stepped closer and took her into an embrace, despite Molly’s wet clothes. “I’m sorry. I understand. I’m really sorry.” She paused for a second, moved away, and continued. “How about we go inside and attack the situation one step after the other.”
Molly’s shoulders slouched again. “I have no idea what to do.”
“Let’s attack this with a little bit of a plan. I have a day off today, so first, we have the coffee and indulge in the croissants, which are with compliments from Auntie Lisa … then we call the insurance. I brought a few old towels which will probably come in handy. And last, we try to fix as much as we can.”
A surge of hope filled Molly, and suddenly her mind was back in action. “And I’ll call the real estate agent. What’s her name again?”
“Sally?”
“Yes. And I’ll ask her for the huge favour to give me the keys for next door.”

Olivia Green had the picture-perfect life. Dating one of the most successful businessmen in New York City, living in a penthouse over Manhattan and a budding career, until one dreadful night when it was all ripped out from under her.

Exclusive Excerpt:

“Kissing me out in the open on Main Street? Do you know what that means?”

He stepped closer, heat coming off him in delicious waves that surrounded her in a fiery blanket of desire. “What does it mean?” His voice dipped to a sultry whisper that had her desperate to throw her inhibitions to the curb.

“Next thing you know, the whole town is planning our relationship down to the wedding day and how many kids we’ll have. Probably twins. A boy and a girl.”

“Kids?”

Olivia snickered at the squeak in his voice. “Don’t worry. You won’t impregnate me by kissing me.”

“But the town will think you’re carrying twins.”

“You’re learning.” She tapped his chest, and an electric current jolted through her veins. Shane wrapped his hand around her wrist and yanked her into the alley between Pie in the Sky and Book Nook. He backed her into the wall, strong male consuming her. His arms caged her in, and she arched toward him, desperate for his touch.

In one fell swoop, he captured her lips, and lava exploded in her chest and dispersed in heated waves. His mouth moved against hers with a carnal lust so passionate and demanding, she lost sight of everything else. All she could focus on was the hard press of Shane’s lips and the hard bulge in his pants meeting the apex of her thighs.

A moan escaped her throat as his hands cupped her face and tilted her head. His tongue swiped lovingly at the crease between her lips, and she parted, welcoming the slick feel. It was a sensual dance of tongue and teeth, licking and nipping, giving and taking. He tasted of sweet coconut and confidence, kissing her with a potency she would never forget.

The way he kissed her, ravenous and precise, it was as if he’d been doing it for years. She melted in to his lips, letting him take control, and not because she felt he needed to dominate, but because she wanted him to.

His body pressed into her, her back melding to the cool brick wall. It was fire and ice, heaven and hell, and she didn’t want it to end. She grabbed his t-shirt, holding him close, absorbing every sensation flooding her body.

He kissed a trail from the corner of her mouth down her neck and back. The stubble on his face left tracks of passion. She didn’t care. Tonight, when she was in her bed, all she would be thinking about was this kiss.

A giggle broke the cloud that surrounded them. “Don’t mind me. Continue just as you were.” Olivia didn’t need to turn to know whose voice that was—Jean Kelly, owner of Book Nook.

Olivia dropped her head to Shane’s shoulder, embarrassed heat prickling her neck and cheeks. Shane held her, and Olivia felt his arm raise in a wave.

“Have a good day, you love birds,” Jean said, and Olivia covered her face with her hands.

“Is she gone?” Olivia asked a few seconds later.

“She’s gone.” Shane’s warm breath caressed her ear. “So… what do you want to name our twins?”

This is still the story set in Tasmania, Leonie’s attempt to travel around the beautiful Australian state. Today’s snippet is in Alex’s POV.
Enjoy ♥

He cocked a brow, speechless at her comment.
“What did she say?” Hans wanted to know.
Pinching the bridge of his nose with his finger and thumb Alex tried his best to recall the conversation as best as possible. “Well, there was a comment of hopefully sooner rather than later when I told her I’d come to Binalong Bay as soon as Leonie moved on.”
His mother shrugged. “You’re asking her to clean your house for a stranger. A woman no less.”
Alex chewed on the piece of roast before he replied, “I’m not sure where you’re going with this.”
Hans let out a deep chuckle. “Your mum’s been listening too much to gossip. Apparently Jenny and her husband are having marital problems.”
“Say what?”
“I do not listen to gossip,” his mother protested. “But Jenny’s mother did tell me that Larry’s going to move out at the end of next month. And Jenny’s always been fond of you.”
Suddenly the very tasty roast left a sour taste in his mouth. Whether or not she’d been fond of him, how would that explain Jenny’s comments?
“I’ll be heading to Binalong tomorrow,” he explained as he stood.
