About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

About the Book
After ten years in the NFL, super star Gray Fowler is accustomed to obsessive fans. But when Gray starts receiving death threats from a stalker, his team hires an executive protection agency to guard him until the culprit is caught. Dealing with bodyguards 24/7 is a headache, especially when one of them is a young, beautiful woman. How can a female half his size possibly protect him better than he can protect himself?

Dru Porter is a former Marine, an expert markswoman, and a black belt–none of which saved her from disaster on her last assignment. In order to rebuild her tarnished reputation, she’s determined to find Gray’s stalker and, since relationships between agents and clients are forbidden, avoid a romantic attachment between herself and the rugged football player with the mysterious past.

Yet every secret that leads Dru closer to the stalker also draws her closer to Gray. As the danger escalates, they’ll survive only if they can learn to trust their lives — and their hearts — to one another.

The Bachelor Girl's Guide to Murder by Rachel McMillan- Delightfully Clever!

My Thoughts:

The Bachelor Girl's Guide to Murder, by Rachel McMillan, is all sorts of fun- if clever mysteries are your cup of tea! The main characters Merinda Herringford (intelligent, unconventional and daring) and Jemima Watts (beautiful, ladylike, with a passion for adventure) are absolutely fabulous in their "Sherlock and Watson" relationship. In the 1910's their independent nature and quest for justice is not socially embraced, yet you'll cheer for them every step of the way!

The mystery unfolds in Toronto with the murders of two Irish young ladies. Merinda and Jemima go undercover as men in the hopes of discovering clues. The city is quite different at night with unsavory characters and The Morality Squad (a group of men enforcing "safety" rules for ladies) policing the streets. In the midst of sleuthing, Ray DeLuca, local reporter, meets Jemima and a friendship is formed. Ray DeLuca is my favorite character, by the way. Quite dashing with his good looks and Italian accent, he's also bighearted and courageous. Yes, I developed a bit of a crush on him!  As the cast of characters grows so do the questions and the danger. It was a true pleasure to read this book! If you enjoy a good mystery, delightful characters, a bit of humor and intrigue this book is for you!

Mermaid Moon, by Colleen Coble

My Thoughts:

Mermaid Moon is the second book in the Sunset Cove series written by Colleen Coble. It can be easily read independently from the first book but the author does allow us to visit characters from The Inn at Ocean's Edge. Mystery, romance, and adventure are all a part of this story and I have to admit I was guessing until the very end. The story is quite exciting with lots of surprises and secrets. One of the major focuses of the story is on forgiveness. The past haunts the main characters, Mallory Davis and Kevin O'Connor, and they struggle with forgiving themselves as well moving on with their lives. I was touched by their stories yet I had a difficult time believing their relationship. Their dialogue was a bit forced and cliched and I failed to care very much about them. While I did enjoy the mystery, the location of the story (Maine!), and the supporting characters I was not as enamored of this book as I am with other Colleen Coble's books. It would be a fun beach read, though, as it's easy to get into and I loved reading the continuing story of characters from The Inn at Ocean's Edge.

Book Description

Mallory’s mother died fifteen years ago. But her father’s last words on the phone were unmistakable: “Find . . . mother.”
Shame and confusion have kept Mallory Davis from her home for the last fifteen years, but when her dad mysteriously dies on his mail boat route, she doesn’t have any choice but to go back to Mermaid Point.
Mallory believes her father was murdered and childhood sweetheart Kevin O’Connor, game warden in Downeast Maine, confirms her suspicions. But Kevin is wary of helping Mallory in her search. She broke his heart and left—without a word—years ago.
When Mallory begins receiving threats on her own life—and her beloved teenage daughter, Haylie—their search intensifies. There’s a tangled web within the supposed murder, and it involves much more than what meets the eye.
As answers begin to fall into place, Mallory realizes her search is about more than finding her father’s killer—it is also about finding herself again . . . and possibly about healing what was broken so long ago with Kevin. She just has to stay alive long enough to put all the pieces together.
