Title: Layback

Author: Jennifer Rebecca

Genre: Sports Romance

About Layback:

Not too long ago, I had one goal: Win an Olympic Gold Medal but an injury took me out of the running for the Ladies Figure Skating competition at the last Olympic Games. Nancy Kerrigan was grandfathered in. I was not.

Translation: I was disqualified. DQ’d. I was out in the cold on my keister.

But when an offer to fill a spot on a pairs team lands in my lap, I take it. It seems like an answered prayer—that is until a competitor is found brutally murdered in her room at the competitor’s village and my partner is the number one suspect.

I’m going to have to take matters into my own hands. Again. Sweet Kristi Yamaguchi, save me from overly cocky men.

My name is Sophia Eleonore Dubois and holy mother of Dorothy Hamill my life is still complicated . . .

About the Author:

Jennifer is a thirty something lover of words, all words: the written, the spoken, the sung (even poorly), the sweet, the funny, and even the four letter variety. She is a native of San Diego, California where she grew up reading the Brownings and Rebecca with her mother and Clifford and the Dog who Glowed in the Dark with her dad, much to her mother’s dismay.

 

Jennifer is a graduate of California State University San Marcos where she studied Criminology and Justice Studies. She is also an Alpha Xi Delta.

 

10 years ago, she was swept off her feet by her very own sailor. Today, they are happily married and the parents of a 8 year old and 6 year old twins. She can often be found in East Texas on the soccer fields, drawing with her children, or reading. Jennifer is convinced that if she puts her fitbit on one of the dogs, she might finally make her step goals. She loves a great romance, an alpha hero, and lots and lots of laughter.

Watch out world — I’m ready to date again.

The seven years I invested in my ex left me with nothing but scorch marks from the way he peeled out and left me at the altar. I’m not looking to put my heart into a relationship any time soon. But getting back out there? That sounds like a helluva good idea to get my groove back.

I wouldn’t mind dating him. The trouble is he just proposed to me—to be the new dating guru on his TV show. Now he’s my new business partner.
What happens when you meet the right person at the wrong time?




Excerpt

~McKenna~

“What other games do you like?” Hot Guy asks, and something about the question startles me. Maybe because it’s so normal, and he seems legitimately curious. Then there’s the simple fact that we’re having a conversation in the middle of an electronics store.

“Scrabble, Trivial Pursuit, Monopoly,” I say with a completely straight face.

He picks up the cue easily, raising an eyebrow as he asks, “Clue?”

“Of course. And it was always Professor Plum in the library with the candlestick.”

“Interesting. Because Miss Scarlet was pretty wicked with that rope in the ballroom, if memory serves. What about Chutes and Ladders?”

“Let’s not forget Candy Land either.”

“What was your favorite candy destination in that game?”

“The vintage game, right? Not that new King Candy imitator?”

“As if I’d even be talking about that game,” he says playfully.

I’m about to answer when he puts his hands together as if he’s praying and says in a whisper, “Please say Ice Cream Floats. Please say Ice Cream Floats.”

I laugh with the kind of mirth I haven’t felt in a while, the kind that radiates through my whole body and turns into a huge grin. “Of course. I wanted to live in Ice Cream Floats.”

“I was all set to build a chocolate and licorice home in Ice Cream Floats. And this reminds me that I need to stock up on the classic games too. But I don’t think they sell them here.”

“I came here because Gadgets, Gizmos, and Geeks is closed, and that’s the only place nearby that actually fixes hard drives.” I put on my best sad face. “I was the victim of a cat hard-drive attack.”

He pretends to be taken aback. “I’ve heard of those. How awful.”

“It was terrible. Fur, claws, and metal everywhere.”

“My condolences. Hopefully you at least caught it on camera so you can post it on YouTube?”

I snap my fingers, aw-shucks-style. “If only.”

“Next time.”

“Or perhaps next time I will do a better job making sure the hard drive is out of his reach.”

He shrugs confidently, quirks up his lips. “Can I see it?”

“Um, sure.” Does he have a thing for broken hard drives? I reach into my bag where I have the drive and show him the silver device with the cracked end.

He surveys the damage. “I can fix it.”

I give him a quizzical look. “Seriously? You can fix a hard drive? Do you moonlight as a computer-repair guy?”

“Not exactly. I can fix pretty much anything.”

“That’s impressive.”

“Want me to try?”

I study his face, trying to figure him out. “You really want to?”

“I do. Yeah,” he says, as if he’s digging the prospect of repairing the damaged device. “I really enjoy that kind of challenge. It’s kind of like a game to me.”

But I don’t want to hand over a hard drive to a total stranger. “Actually…”

He smiles, raises a finger. “And I bet you probably don’t want to give your hard drive to a total stranger.”

I shrug, a little embarrassed. “Sorry. But you can’t be too careful.”

“I hear you completely. But this is simple. And…” He inches closer, reaches into the pocket of his jeans, and dangles his keys. Is he going to take me for a ride? “I have the tools right here.”

I blink, surprised. “What?”

He waggles the keys, and I spy a tiny little tube that looks like it holds screwdrivers.

“You carry computer-repair tools with you?”

He smiles casually. “You never know when you might need them. I also carry a Swiss Army knife. I read 101 Things a Navy SEAL Knows.” He glances out the window of the store at Chestnut Street, teeming with pedestrians. “And I also know the café next door makes a killer espresso. I’ll fix it while we get a cup of joe.”

Cup of joe! That’s almost like a date!

I mean, it’s not a date.

Obviously.

But it’s training-wheels time. Talking to this guy as he fixes my hard drive might help me prep for when I go out with Steven from Madcap, the Lemonhead Guy, Nathaniel from Julia’s bar, and the other men I hope will come knocking on my door—not literally—once my dating prowess improves.

“Sure,” I say, with probably way more enthusiasm than the prospect of a repair job and coffee deserves.

There’s a big bonus to this cuppa. I’ll get to look at his handsome face while he fixes it. I mean, I’ll look at his hands, because the sight of a man using a tool is super hot.

“By the way, I’m Chris McCormick.”

“McKenna Bell.”

He extends a hand.

We make contact, and there’s something about the feel of his strong hand in mine that kind of turns me on. Maybe it’s the firm grip, or the way his eyes light up as he smiles. I want to tug him closer and plant a hot, wet kiss on his lips.

Nothing will happen though. He didn’t ask me on a date, and I didn’t ask him either.

But it can’t hurt that I’m thinking slightly naughty thoughts. It’s evidence I’m getting my groove back.

Hello, groove. Nice to see you. I’ve missed you bunches.

The Suspects

The Suspects

by Katharine Johnson

 

Synopsis:

Shallow Grave meets The Secret History in this quirky psychological thriller

Bristol, 1988. Five young graduates on the threshold of their careers buy a house together in order to get a foot on the property ladder before prices spiral out of their reach. But it soon becomes the house share from hell.

After their New Year’s Eve party, they discover a body – and it’s clear they’ll be the first suspects. As each of them has a good reason from their past not to trust the police, they come up with a solution – one which forces them into a life of secrets and lies. But can they trust each other? 

“The hugely talented Katharine Johnson has, again delivered a tense thriller! This is a compelling novel – up there with Erin Kelly and Sophie Hannah.”

~Val Penny, author of The Edinburgh Crime Mysteries.~

 

“Gripping and frighteningly realistic. The twists and turns kept me guessing to the very end.”

~Jo Fenton, author of The Brotherhood.~




Christie’s Review

5 STARS

An amazing psychological suspense thriller that had me on the edge of my seat!!!

Five university graduates who all work at the same place decide to buy a house together. At first, it seems like a great idea. Emily, Xanthe, Stuart, Zak, and Imogene are on their best behavior with one another, but it doesn’t take long before the cracks in their arrangement begin to appear. Finding a dead body in their basement on New Year’s Eve doesn’t make it any better. That night would have far-reaching consequences for the five housemates.

Secrets, lies, and betrayals are at this heart of this book. There are so many twists and turns, but all will be revealed by the end. I know I’m not revealing much, but I can’t! I wouldn’t want to spoil a thing for those who haven’t read this one! Once you start, you won’t come up for air until the last page is finished.

The author has an amazing talent in building the suspense. By the end of every chapter, she would add some foreshadowing that would be another twist in the story! If you are looking for a nail-biter of a book, The Suspects is not to be missed!!!!

Coming Home To Wishington Bay

Coming Home To Wishington Bay

by Maxine Morrey

 

Synopsis:

Home is where the heart is…

Holly doesn’t have time for a holiday this year. But when her job threatens to send her over the brink, her boss insists she take a sabbatical. So she packs her bags and escapes to her beloved grandmother Gigi’s house on Wishington Bay, which has sat empty since Gigi passed away.
 
But Holly’s dreams of a coastal escape take an unexpected turn. Holly didn’t expect to spend time with any man this summer – let alone an Aussie Adonis…but when she meets her next door neighbour Gabe and his little dog Bryan, it’s clear her quiet summer of strolling along the sand and wandering through the seaside village’s tiny streets on her own will come with a hefty dose of distraction.
 
With a summer to fill and Gigi’s wonderful and surprising house to sort through, Holly knew it would be a summer packed with old memories. She just didn’t expect to make so many new ones…
 
Coming Home to Wishington Bay is the new gorgeous uplifting rom-com from Maxine Morrey, perfect for fans of Sarah Morgan and Tilly Tennant!

 




Christie’s Review

4.5 STARS

As the cover says, Coming Home to Wishington Bay is “an uplifting rom-com,” and it’s a great one at that…a perfect read for the beginning of summer!!!!

Holly is ALWAYS busy, working herself to the bone, and especially after a bad breakup with her ex. Her boss insists that she take some time off to re-group. She knows the perfect place, the place she always felt safe, happy, and loved…her grandmother’s home. It has been empty since her grandmother’s death. She is looking forward to some rest and relaxation. All that is turned on its head when she finds a strange man outside her window on a ladder. Turns out, he is her neighbor, the one her grandmother, Gigi, was always talking about. What turns out to be a rough introduction soon turns into something magical, something Holly definitely wasn’t expecting!

Holly and Gabe are PERFECT for one another. Both are independent and both can be sassy, especially with each other. However, they really come to like and respect one another. Their road to a real romance is a bumpy one, but it’s one I’m so glad I got to take with them. There are some funny, sweet, and romantic moments. Those three are my favorite ingredients for a good rom-com!

On top of a great storyline and a great cast of characters, the setting was just gorgeous. The writer did a great job of describing everything. I felt as I was there and a part of the story!

I highly recommend reading if you are a fan of rom-coms!!!!

Author Bio

Coming Home To Wishington - Maxine Morrey - bio pic b&w

Maxine has wanted to be a writer for as long as she can remember and wrote her first (very short) book for school when she was ten.

As time went by, she continued to write, but ‘normal’ work often got in the way. She has written articles on a variety of subjects, as well as a local history book on Brighton. However, novels are her first love.

In August 2015, she won Harper Collins/Carina UK’s ‘Write Christmas’ competition with her first romantic comedy, ‘Winter’s Fairytale‘.

Maxine lives on the south coast of England, and when not wrangling with words loves to read, sew and listen to podcasts. Being a fan of tea and cake, she can (should!) also be found doing something vaguely physical at the gym.

A Clean Canvas

A Clean Canvas

by Elizabeth Mundy

Synopsis:

Crime always leaves a stain…

Lena Szarka, a Hungarian cleaner, dusts off her detective skills when a masterpiece is stolen from a gallery she cleans with her cousin Sarika. When Sarika goes missing too, accusations start to fly.

Convinced her cousin is innocent, Lena sweeps her way through the secrets of the London art scene. But with the evidence against Sarika mounting and the police on her trail, Lena needs to track down the missing painting if she is to clear her cousin.

Embroiling herself in the sketchy world of thwarted talents, unpaid debts and elegant fraudsters, Lena finds that there’s more to this gallery than meets the eye.




Christie’s Review

4 STARS

A Clean Canvas by Elizabeth Mundy is an intriguing cozy mystery and a bit different. It doesn’t involve a murder but the disappearance of a valuable painting.

Lena owns her own cleaning business that really only generates enough business for her but being the kind-hearted person she is, she hires her cousin, Sarika, to help her. Lena volunteered herself and Sarika to serve food and drinks at a gala for the art gallery she cleans, not knowing it would send her on a twisted journey that exposes many secrets!

Sarika is the suspect when a valuable painting goes missing, but Lena knows she didn’t do it. However, she faces a huge problem when Sarika goes missing too! Is her disappearance related to the theft and is she in danger?

This was a great mystery that kept me guessing. Lena is a strong, independent, loyal woman…she won’t rest until she finds her cousin and proves her innocence. There is a lot of twists and turns and plenty of suspects.

If you are looking for a different sort of mystery, I recommend this one!

Christie’s Review

4 STARS

Beautiful story about friendship, realizing your dreams, and a second chance at romance!

Janna and Shelby were best friends who decided to move from a bigger city to a smaller town to pursue their shared dream. Even though this is about the friendship between these two women, it is told from Janna’s POV and later in her love interest, Richard’s, POV. However, I did learn a lot about Shelby from Janna. Both women are complicated and have their issues, Shelby turns to alcohol, and Janna has a problem with her temper. Yet, that makes them very relatable.

Richard is also new to town, and the ladies find him quite mysterious and handsome. However, he only has eyes for Janna. What makes him so likeable is his patience, and he takes his time getting to know Janna and earning her trust.

This was a great story. It is told in both Janna and Richard’s POV throughout the chapters, not alternating chapters which I liked. I felt like the story wasn’t being repeated but told as it happened in each of their voices. The setting was beautiful as well. I also loved the quotes at the beginning of the book. They definitely tell you exactly what the book is about.
