Synopsis: 
San Francisco, 1915. As America teeters on the brink of world war, Charmian and her husband, famed novelist Jack London, wrestle with genius and desire, politics and marital competitiveness. Charmian longs to be viewed as an equal partner who put her own career on hold to support her husband, but Jack doesn’t see it that way…until Charmian is pulled from the audience during a magic show by escape artist Harry Houdini, a man enmeshed in his own complicated marriage. Suddenly, charmed by the attention Houdini pays her and entranced by his sexual magnetism, Charmian’s eyes open to a world of possibilities that could be her escape.
As Charmian grapples with her urge to explore the forbidden, Jack’s increasingly reckless behavior threatens her dedication. Now torn between two of history’s most mysterious and charismatic figures, she must find the courage to forge her own path, even as she fears the loss of everything she holds dear.
Review: I have to admit to not knowing much about the lives of Jack and Charmain London--which may have been an asset in reading this book. It meant that I could simply enjoy it as a work of fiction, without being too concerned about how accurately it portrayed their lives.

I found myself fascinated by the relationship between the Londons and the Houdinis as presented in this story. While Charmain seemed to find Houdini so very different to Jack, I thought they were remarkably similar--they both treated their wives badly while giving much more attention to other women, they both appeared to be very ego-driven and self-centered. Meanwhile, Charmain and Bessie, for the most part, accepted the men as they were and stayed in their marriages BECAUSE of who the men were, in my opinion.

This book is very well written and gives a great look into the literary/celebrity world during the WWI era.  As a first novel, it's a roaring success, and I look forward to future efforts from this author.

Rating: Four stars

Willow Wells is officially an entrepreneur. With the first phase of her dog gym’s renovation complete, and a success, Willow is ready for more. A doggie spa to be exact. The plan is to win an upcoming dog show, not only giving her the funds for the expansion but a national advertising campaign with the winning dog, Lady Valkyrie. Everything is going according to plan—and Willow can see the future in all its gold medal and dog grooming glory—until Terry Gib, Lady Valkyrie’s owner, is accused of murder.

Willow thought that Terry had come to Pineview just for training, but it turns out Terry has ties to the town; a painful past that links her to a local bed and breakfast owner. And now that owner is dead. As Willow races to clear Terry and save their chance at victory with Lady Valkyrie, the rest of her life begins to fall apart too. Wednesday is distracted, her father is anxious, and Griffin, the man she’s coming to depend on, is threatening to leave her—so he can woo her.

Now Willow is forced to make some big decisions: about who she trusts, who she should believe, and who she should date before she loses it all forever.

BOOK TOUR AND GIVEAWAY: Blownup In Paradise (Paradise Series #14) by Deborah Brown


BOOK INFORMATION
Genre: Cozy Mystery
  • Series: Paradise Series
  • Paperback: 422 pages
  • Publisher: Paradise Books, LLC (March 3, 2018)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 0998440450
  • ISBN-13: 978-0998440453






















NEW RELEASE....
I’ve come a long way since inheriting my Aunt Elizabeth’s Tarpon Cove house and her beach cottages full of quirky residents. I strap a Glock to my thigh as easily as I slip into flip-flops.

Even Fab is going legit… mostly. When she’s hired to investigate some high-end boat thefts in Biscayne Bay, I go along to do what I do best. Chat up the help to get the real story.

Neither of us expected the case to explode—literally—and take out one of Miami’s richest men. And possibly a mistress, though no one’s found her body floating among the bits and pieces.

Somewhere in the Miami upper-crust’s phony smiles and even phonier alibis there’s someone who wanted to see Marshall Sacks dead. Someone willing to ruin Fab’s and my lives to keep their secret. It’ll take calling in every favor I’m owed to keep us out of trouble.

The Paradise series, are Florida Keys mysteries, “great as stand-alone reads, but they're like chips...you won't be able to devour just one!”


Available to buy from.....

"South Florida author Deborah Brown books are infectious.

"My love for these quirky characters grows with every book! Hope they never end!"

"This fabulous duo exudes so much sassiness and strong willed characteristics that I absolutely cannot get enough of." 
Above reviews from Amazon

Review: This is Madison and Fab's most explosive adventure, both literally and figuratively. Meanwhile, Creole is making plans for his future--will he return to the police force or try something new--and the girls are behaving more responsibly, for the most part, when it comes to their PI jobs. Once again, Brick is up to no good and dragging the girls along with him until they catch on.   Life at The Cottages continues to be one misadventure after another--and it was great to see Creole step up and put the fear of God into a group of tourists!

The end of the book shares a very special secret, and I can't wait to read the next book to see what's going to happen next.

As usual, this is a very well written story. Ms. Brown has created characters that series readers can care about, who feel like family by this point. And her description of the Tarpon Cove area put you right in the thick of the Florida Keys...which is a great mini-vacation any time of year.

I will be anxiously awaiting the release of book #15, Psycho In Paradise.  

I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.

Four stars

About the Author
I've been writing, in one way or another for as long as I can remember; poetry, sappy short stories (my best friend made me swear that I’d never show anyone until I changed the names), and a romance novel shoved under my bed.

I wanted to create books with a wide-range of unforgettable characters, with heat and romance, and lots of guns. It wouldn’t be complete without a slice of humor and charm.

I live with my family and demon children aka rescue cats in South Florida.

BOOK BIRTHDAY BLITZ: Tilting by Nicole Harkin

Synopsis: We only learned about our father's girlfriend after he became deathly ill and lay in a coma 120 miles from our home.

Overhearing the nurse tell Linda--since I was nine I had called my mom by her first name--about the girlfriend who came in almost every day to visit him when we weren't there confirmed that the last moment of normal had passed us by without our realizing it. Up to then our family had unhappily coexisted with Dad flying jumbo jets to Asia while we lived in Montana. We finally came together to see Dad through his illness, but he was once again absent from a major family event--unable to join us from his comatose state. This is the moment when our normal existence tilted.

Dad recovered, but the marriage ailed, as did Linda, with cancer. Our family began to move down an entirely different path with silver linings we wouldn't see for many years.

In this candid and compassionate memoir which recently won a Gold Award in The Wishing Shelf Book Award, Nicole Harkin describes with an Impressionist's fine eye the evolution of a family that is quirky, independent, uniquely supportive, peculiarly loving and, most of all, marvelously human.
Purchase Links


Review: This is a very touching, compelling portrait of a unique family. It is a quick read that you'll want to finish in one sitting. The author doesn't sugarcoat her life, nor does she try to make us feel sorry for her. She presents the facts in a realist manner, allowing the reader to find their own reaction to each part of the story. Throughout the book, we go back and forth between Nicole's childhood and her adult life, learning that discovering her father's girlfriend, as described in the blurb, is hardly the beginning of the unusual in her life. I laughed, I cried, and I cringed at some of the situations in this family.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book from Rachel's Random Resources.

BOOK TOUR AND GIVEAWAY: Don't Believe It by Charlie Donlea


Don't Believe It by Charlie Donlea


About the Book 

 
Mystery/Crime/Suspense 
Kensington (May 29, 2018) 
Hardcover: 304 pages 
ISBN-13: 978-1496713803 
Digital ASIN: B075CBLSDX 
Audio ASIN: B079VRWSRY 
From acclaimed author Charlie Donlea comes a twisting, impossible-to-put-down novel of suspense in which a filmmaker helps clear a woman convicted of murder—only to find she may be a puppet in a sinister game.
The Girl of Sugar Beach is the most watched documentary in television history—a riveting, true-life mystery that unfolds over twelve weeks and centers on a fascinating question: Did Grace Sebold murder her boyfriend, Julian, while on a Spring Break vacation, or is she a victim of circumstance and poor police work? Grace has spent the last ten years in a St. Lucian prison, and reaches out to filmmaker Sidney Ryan in a last, desperate attempt to prove her innocence.
As Sidney begins researching, she uncovers startling evidence, additional suspects, and timeline issues that were all overlooked during the original investigation. Before the series even finishes filming, public outcry leads officials to reopen the case. But as the show surges towards its final episodes, Sidney receives a letter saying that she got it badly, terribly wrong.
Sidney has just convinced the world that Grace is innocent. Now she wonders if she has helped to free a ruthless killer. Delving into Grace’s past, she peels away layer after layer of deception. But as Sidney edges closer to the real heart of the story, she must decide if finding the truth is worth risking her newfound fame, her career . . . even her life.
Review: I loved all the twists and turns in this book. I thought I knew what was going on for about the first half of the book, and then I started to doubt myself. After a few red herrings, I realized my first impression on the killer was the right one.

The author did a fantastic job of drawing me into the story and keeping me interested. The last sentence of the book left me hungry for more...plus I would love to know the whole story of Sidney's father's case.

I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley and Kensington Books in exchange for an honest review.
