Reckless Memories, an all-new friends to lovers standalone
romance from Catherine Cowles is releasing May 12th, and we have the stunning cover!

Reckless Memories Cover.jpg

I loved him before I knew what the word meant.
From skinned knees to first dates and everything in between.
But he was never mine to love.
I settled for friendship, even though I always wanted more.

That was before.
Before he ripped my world apart and didn’t bother sticking around to help me pick up the pieces.
I knit every last shred back together all on my own.
And I’ve all but forgotten his name.

Now, he’s back, and everything is torn apart once more.
But he’s not the only one doing the tearing this time.
And there might be no stopping the person who has it out for us both.

Just Friends (Blue Beech #6) by Charity Ferrell Cover Reveal with Pre-Order Links, Giveaway ($25 Amazon gift card), & Excerpt


Just Friends by Charity Ferrell is #ComingFebruary6th! Pre-order now for just $2.99!



Someone should have warned me about falling in love with my best friend.



Little did I know when Rex came to my locker attempting to bribe me, that he’d turn into my everything.

We’d become best friends. I’d steal his heart. He’d steal mine.

Nothing has changed in the years of our friendship.

Not our connection, not our feelings, or that we still hold each other’s hearts.

But his heart isn’t the only thing I’ve kept.

The secret I’m hiding could shatter the only man I’ve ever loved.



I’ve loved Carolina since the day she called my bluff.

Our friendship always came first.

She believed in me when no one else did.

I tucked away my feelings because I couldn’t survive a life without her.

We crossed the line once, and I swore it’d never happen again.

As time passes, the harder it becomes to live up to that promise.

Until finally, there’s no holding back.

“Grab your planner, sweetheart. Pencil me in to pick you up three Saturdays from now. Seven o’clock.”

“Okay,” she drags out. “What’s up with the preplanning?”

“Prom night. Let me know the color of your dress, so we can do all that matchy-matchy bullshit.”

“Excuse me?” She scowls in my direction. “You can’t just tell me I’m going to prom with you.” She throws her arms up, her voice turning all dramatic, like the boring romance movies she forces me to watch. “You didn’t even ask!”

“No need for me to ask. You’re going to prom with me.”

“What if I don’t want to go with you? You didn’t even give me a promposal!”

“Tough shit. You won’t find a better date. Not to mention, I’m the only guy in this school who won’t try to weasel his inexperienced dick into your virginal panties.” He raises his brows. “If you want a promposal, I’ll get one of those banners that fly in the sky or some shit.”

“You’re so romantic.” She crosses her arms, pouting her glossy pink lips. “Have you ever thought that I don’t want my panties to stay virginal? Maybe I want to change that on prom night.”

“Maybe you’ve lost your goddamn mind.” I clear my throat, and my voice grows deeper. “You’re my date. Your panties will remain untouched.” I jerk my thumb toward her planner in the backseat. “Put it in there, circle it with a red marker, and don’t forget.”

She huffs. “What about Leanne, the girl you’ve already asked to prom?”

Shit. I fucking forgot about Leanne. “She can either be your sister-date or kick rocks.”

“I am not having a sister-date,” she shrieks.

“Looks like she’ll be kicking rocks then. I’ll bribe her to go with someone else.”

Murphy is available.

“I can’t believe I speak to you.”

“You. Me. Prom.” I lean over and kiss her cheek before turning on the car. “My mom is making tacos tonight. You coming over for dinner?”

“Ugh, fine, but I’m only coming for her and the tacos.”

Never Love a Rockstar by Sarah Darlington Cover Reveal with Giveaway ($15 Dollar Amazon GC)

Author: Sarah Darlington
Release Date: February 5th
Series: The NEVER TRUST Series, Book 3

No, I wouldn’t wish that on anyone.

Rebecca Cooper knows what dating a rockstar is like. It’s late nights, months on the road, and constantly sharing your man with everyone else. It’s coming second. She’s been there, done that, and walked away with a broken heart. So how it is possible she’s put herself in this position again? In love with yet another rockstar. This time, his brother.

Luke Mills is bitter. He’s bogged down by years of guilt and heartache. He goes through the motions. He’s rough with everyone around him. And then Rebecca walks back into his life. Sweet Rebecca. She shouldn’t be here. She shouldn’t have come back. But Luke sees her and can’t help the way his heart wants to respond. But, no, not in a million years—he’d never let her have a spot in his frozen heart again. Not when she was always his brother’s girl.

From Cleo Coyle, the New York Times bestselling author of Shot in the Dark and Dead Cold Brew, comes a delicious new entry in the “fun and gripping” (The Huffington Post) Coffeehouse Mysteries.

When coffeehouse manager Clare Cosi awakens on a bench in Washington Square Park, she has no idea she’s been missing for the past week, or that her friends and family have been frantic with worry. Now that she’s back, everyone is overjoyed, including a handsome NYPD detective who claims to be her fiancé. But to Mike Quinn’s crushing distress, Clare doesn’t remember him, or much of anything about the last decade of her life.

Clare’s missing memory is tied to a crime she witnessed. An acquaintance of Clare’s elegant employer–and fellow member of an exclusive Gotham circle known as “The Ladies Who Brunch”–invited Clare to her posh hotel to sample gourmet wedding cakes. The pair took a stroll after their indulgent tasting and, according to security camera footage, a masked figure snatched the hotel heiress at gunpoint with Clare looking on. Did the kidnapper take Clare, too? The camera went dark, just like Clare’s memory. Soon authorities grow suspicious. Is Clare really a victim? Or merely acting like one? Evidence is mounting that she set the woman up.

To clear her name, Clare must find a way to reclaim her memories and rescue the heiress before this high-stakes crime ends in tragedy. Otherwise, instead of walking down the aisle, Clare may find herself perp-walking to prison as an accomplice to kidnapping and murder.

Christie’s Review


Great read with an interesting take on memory loss! I really enjoyed it!!!!

Clare is a newly engaged woman at the very beginning of the book, and she is happy and ready to start her new life with Mike. All that changes when Clare wakes up on a bench in Washington Square Park. All her family and friends are scared because she has been missing, but none of them are expecting the Clare they get back. She has lost her memory of the last 15 years. This is just part of the story. It may be connected to the missing hotel heiress, Annette Brewster. Then, there Dr. Lorca, the man who is supposed to help her regain her memory, but with a very controversial method, isolating her from all her family and friends. 

The interconnected mysteries are great. Many writers may not be able to pull off those separate yet connected plotlines, but not Cleo Coyle. It was fantastic! There were many plot twists I didn’t see coming. 

While the mystery was wonderful, Coyle also pulled my emotions into the storyline as well. I cannot imagine how Clare was feeling. This woman didn’t even know what a smart phone was! She thinks her daughter is 11 when in reality she is now a grown woman, not to mention, her complicated past with her ex. She doesn’t even know she is newly engaged to the sweet, strong Mike. 

Not only is she suffering but so are her family and friends…poor Mike. The woman he has loved and spent time gaining her trust and love doesn’t even know him. It broke my heart. I did like the premise of her getting to know him and falling in love with him all over again…that warmed my heart! 

To make the book even better, there are a ton of recipes and tips from The Village Blend!!!! I can’t tell you how much I LOVED Brewed Awakening!!!!

Cleo Coyle Gives her Characters a Brewed Awakening + Recipe and Giveaway

Brewed Awakening marks the 18th Coffeehouse Mystery that my husband and I have written. Like every entry in our long-running series, this story centers on Clare Cosi, a single mom in her forties with a complicated personal life and a talent for amateur sleuthing. 

Clare manages a charming, century-old coffeehouse in New York’s historic Greenwich Village, and she’s often in a position to know more than the police about the quirky and creative community she serves. When crime happens and the professionals hit dead ends, Clare goes to work.

For her latest case, Marc and I began our story development with a conversation over (you guessed it) coffee. As a married couple, we’ve been through decades of ups and down. But what if those years were wiped from our memories? Would we still be drawn to each other? If so, how exactly does “like” deepen into something more? When does love happen? 

With Clare on a path to be married to her longtime boyfriend, NYPD Detective Mike Quinn, we decided to explore those questions in Brewed Awakening, and we agreed that Clare would suffer from a traumatic memory loss. Her damaged memory is tied to a crime she witnesses, one that lands her in a great deal of hot water. To get herself out, and reclaim the love of her life, Clare must find a way to recover what she’s lost. But will she? Or is her life, as she once knew it, gone forever?

If you’re a newcomer to our Coffeehouse world, don’t hesitate to pick up Brewed Awakening. Every Coffeehouse Mystery can be read as a stand-alone story. And, if you like one, you’ll have seventeen more to enjoy. But don’t miss our latest. We hope you’ll find this mystery about memory to be unforgettable. 

“Amid the delightfully twisty mystery, Coyle poses an intriguing question: if you lost all memory of your beloved, would you fall for him all over again?”

Cozy Mystery
4th in Series
Independently Published (December 6, 2019
Number of Pages — ~280

The library can save your life… can it kill you, too?

JJ has a new job at the library, which ought to make her happy. But with all those books to shelve, the PTA to run, and a 16-year-old son to raise, there’s never enough time to spend with her sweetheart, police chief Ron Karlson. That’s especially true with Thanksgiving on the horizon and her mother coming to visit, not to mention the PTA’s Holiday Bazaar looming ahead.

When things turn deadly in the library stacks, JJ needs some answers fast, before she loses her job—or her life. She’s determined to learn everything about the victim, and for once the library doesn’t hold all the answers. JJ and Kitty may have to face the ultimate peril: a visit to Mrs. Halsey, the oldest—and crankiest—person on the island.

Christie’s Review


What a delightful, charming mystery with some light romantic elements!


JJ’s life seems to be falling into a rhythm even if it is busy! She has a new job she is enjoying at the library. She is rocking being a single mom to a teenage boy, and she is enjoying her time with her boyfriend, Ron, the police chief. She is busy with the PTA’s upcoming Holiday Bazaar and trying to get a swimming pool for the island. 


Many people are in favor of the pool, except for one grumpy member, old Mr. Fingal, who seems more interested in getting a football team re-established…so he is a no. To add insult to injury, he is the one donating the land to the school. However, all that comes to a crashing halt when a woman, Jolene Smethers, claims that her family owns the land. The issue is tabled until the land dispute is settled. 


JJ decides she is going to find out who this woman is. Days later,  there is an earthquake with a victim’s body in the library, and it’s none other than Jolene Smethers. It appears she didn’t die from natural causes…in other words, the books didn’t kill her. Now, JJ has something else to add to her busy life…solving another murder. The list of suspects is long because Jolene had a habit of stirring up trouble everywhere. 


The mystery is fast-moving, without losing any substance. The characters are fun as well! I love JJ’s spunk and determination. She doesn’t give up easily. There are some twists and turns in the book. Her personal life may be changing in a way she isn’t expecting, but isn’t that what life is all about anyway? 


If you like a good mystery, with a spunky, strong female lead with some great secondary characters, and a lovely setting, give this series a try!

About Rebecca M. Douglass

After a lifetime of reading, and a decade or more of slinging books at the library and herding cats with the PTA, Rebecca began to turn her experiences into books of her own, publishing her first in 2012. That failed to quiet the voices in her head, but seemed to entertain a number of readers, so she wrote some more, which generated still more voices. Despite the unlimited distractions provided by raising sons to the point of leaving home (and preparing to move without forwarding address if necessary to retain that empty nest), not to mention the mountains that keep calling (very hard to resist the urging of something the size of the Sierra Nevada), she has managed to pen a total of 9 books so far.

For those who enjoy murder and mayhem with a sense of humor, Rebecca’s Pismawallops PTA mysteries (Death By Ice Cream and Death By Trombone, Death By Adverb, and Death By Library) provide insights into what PTA moms are really like. If you prefer tall tales and even less of a grip on reality, visit Skunk Corners in The Ninja Librarian and the sequels Return to Skunk Corners and The Problem of Peggy. For those who’ve always thought that fantasy was a bit too high-minded, a stumble through rescues and escapes with Halitor the Hero, possibly the most hapless hero to ever run in fear from any and all fair maidens, should set you straight.

Why does Rebecca write so many different kinds of books (there’s even an alphabet picture book in the mix!)? We could argue that it’s because she has a rich lifetime of experience that requires expression in—squirrel!

Its Not PMS Its You

It’s Not PMS, It’s You

by Rich Amooi

About the Book

Ruth “Ruthless” Harper is on the verge of becoming managing partner at her all-male consulting firm and she won’t let anything stand in her way. That includes men, relationships, and that dreaded F word, FEELINGS—distractions she eliminated long ago.

After the worst day ever (a near-death experience and a public wedgie, for starters), Ruth realizes she doesn’t want to live and die alone. She puts together a business plan to find the perfect man and dives head first into the murky online dating pool. All she wants is a high-powered executive who understands how important her career is. If only it were that easy.

Problem is most men are intimidated by Ruth’s confidence and shocked by her bluntness. The exception being her landscape designer, Nick, whose cool demeanor and unsolicited dating advice are driving her nuts. He’s the antithesis of the business-oriented man Ruth envisions for herself, so why do all signs keep pointing back to him?

Christie’s Review


Ruth Harper seems to have it all…a great career and a beautiful home, yet she doesn’t spend her time nurturing her personal relationships, for example with her parents. Her only friend is her PA. She doesn’t do relationships or feelings….especially love. However, all that changes with one night on an airport runway, and she decides she wants more out of life, maybe even love. 

She decides she will use the same methods to find love as she did to find success in the business world. Well, we all know how this is going to turn out. She just wants a man who understands her drive and ambition without feeling threatened. Is that too hard to ask? However, she keeps coming back to her sweet landscape designer, Nick, whom proved what a gentleman he was during her spinning class. 

I have read several books by this author, and I have enjoyed each one. This one is my favorite one by far. He does a great job of telling a wonderful story complete with awesome characters.

Ruth was a fantastic character! He did a great job of capturing both sides to Ruth…the strong, unyielding, and determined business woman and the tender side of her that is looking for love. 

Nick was a perfect match to Ruth even if she couldn’t see it at first. He as patient, kind, and really appreciated the woman she was. She could be herself with him…faults and all. 

This is really a great chick lit read told with the perfect combination of humor, wit, and romance.

The Raided Heart: A Border Reiver Romantic Adventure (The Historic Hearts Book 1) by Jennifer C. Wilson Blog Tour with Review & Giveaway (Win 2 x e-copies of The Last Plantagenet? (Open Internationally)

The Raided Heart

The Raided Heart (The Historic Books #1)

by Jennifer C. Wilson


Meg Mathers, the headstrong youngest sibling of a reiving family on the English-Scottish border, is determined to remain at her childhood home, caring for the land and village she’s grown up with. When an accident brings her a broken ankle and six weeks in the resentful company of ambitious and angry young reiver Will Hetherington, attraction starts to build. Both begin to realise they might have met their match, and the love of their lives, but 15th century border living is not that simple, as Meg soon finds herself betrothed to the weakling son of a tyrannical neighbour, Alexander Gray. When tragedy strikes, can Meg and Will find their way back to each other, and can Will finally take his own personal revenge on Gray?

Christie’s Review



The Raided Heart is a beautiful and emotional historical saga!


Meg is the youngest child of a reiving family. She has taken the place as the matriarch since her mother’s death. She is a strong woman who is protective of her family and the land she has grown up on. One night when her brothers and their band of reivers return, Meg sprains her ankle, and her brothers make young Will care for her since they blame him for the accident. 

Will is pretty resentful and doesn’t want to be stuck taking care of a woman. However, as the two spend more time together, this unlikely pair fall deeply in love. That happiness doesn’t last long as Meg is promised to marry Alexander Gray, a neighbor. This is when the novel gets very emotional. Gray is a terrible person, and I’m putting that mildly! He epitomizes the meaning of a villian. 

Meg has to endure a great deal living with him. Despite their separation, Meg and Will’s love doesn’t fade. It somehow grows stronger. They are in a race to find a way to find their HEA despite the danger that may pose to both of them.

The book is a beautiful love story yet it is also an adventure. The author goes into detail with the raids and really puts the reader into the story. It is also filled with intrigue because Gray and Will share a connection because of their past. 

If you are looking for a book that is a breath-taking romance and adventure, you can’t go wrong with this historical fiction book! Looking forward to more in the series!
