The girls are back, well almost all of them. We are more centered on Shayla and what her life has become since her split with Titus and Lissa who is her best friend, now. And I got to say, she really ended up on top and was really showing it at the beginning of the books. On this trail of finding herself, she went back to school and is a doctor. I ...
Thanksgiving is a few days away. I’ll spend it with my husband, calling our kids who live too far away to visit, remembering our mothers who have left this world. Neither Terry’s nor my mother lived to enjoy this day, but we did. And we remember and give thanks for the good times when my mother was healthy and his mother still had a steel-trap memo
“If you really want to know yourself, start writing a book” _Theodore Roosevelt_ When I joined Toastmasters International, I became aware of my passion for writing. I delivered ten great inspirational speeches. But like most people I had the fear of public speaking and my aim for being a member was to overcome that fear. I realised that the only wa
Her Final Breath by Robert DugoniMy rating: 5 of 5 stars I absolutely love thrillers, especially crime ones, and my favourites are serial killers, which this book was about. The main character is Homicide detective Tracy Crosswhite, she is still reeling from the murder of her sister when she is put in charge of the team investigating the serial kil
Bragg V1 by Jack LynchMy rating: 5 of 5 stars I received a copy of this book via the publishers Brash Books, in return for an honest review.

Peace. Yo, I'm back with part 2 of my blog on the "The Right Thing To Do". Instead of a brotha writing another article I decided to produce a documentary film on police brutality and due process reform. At first I was going to leave the subject alone. I put in my 2 cents on how people should conduct themself with the
A Sip of Fear, by Brian Rush, is a sort of contemporary urban fantasy set on the streets of Seattle. The year is deliberately unspecified, but you can easily imagine the events playing out today anywhere in the world. Having briefly lived in Seattle, part of the charm for me was the occasional sense of recognition of the places visited. However, th
Today I am welcoming Suzanne Adair to an author interview. I first came across Suzanne's writing at the end of last year, and have been getting more familiar with it since. I have previously reviewed Hostage to Heritage and Camp Follower. She writes about the American War of Independence, so an interview for July 4th seemed perfect! Q. Suzanne, wha
Written as one of “The Review Group” Review Volunteers, see http://thereview2014.blogspot.co.uk It is a very long time since I read a Western. Back in school we had Shane as a class book, and from the same era (and I'm showing my age here) I was a keen watcher of the two television series The Virginian and The High Chaparral. But since those long-a
My favorite series coming to a happy ending. Anna and Bentley have been through a whirlwind of emotions. From fighting their urges to leaving everything on the field these two have come across the final step in their relationship: acceptance. Accepting that love really can conquer all and guide you to places they both didn't think possible. I have loved this story from the stripper pole to the soccer field and what these two have in store for you in You and I Forever was more that I could ever have imagined. The start of this book had me confused and thinking I was missing something, but once you catch up with you see that these two were preparing for a future and one of them didn’t know it. One of the hiccups in their relationship was really not a bad one, but one that was going to be a hurdle. Bentley and Anna met in a strip club she continued dancing even when they were building a relationship. Now, the moment of truth comes in and love enters the equation where Bentley gives Anna the ultimatum. I kind of saw it coming but for me, was one of the one questions I had in my head. Second favorite part in the book for me.
