Host Addison Barnes

 

About the book: 

In 1934, the body of a beautiful but poor young woman was found alongside a riverbank near The Depot. Beaten to a pulp, only recognizable by a tattoo on her ankle, and yet, days after the discovery, the story all but disappears.   

Eighty years later, locals claim The Depot is haunted. But in all the years homicide detective Mark Waters has visited the historic 1800s train station turned restaurant, he's never seen proof. Until now.  

As he sifts through evidence of a supposed suicide by train, he learns a murder that took place 80 years ago may directly affect his case.   

Six months after the strange occurrences at The Depot, there's another murder. This time, The Library holds secrets of several murders, and the dead won't rest until the murderer checks out, too.  

 

Reviews:

Past and present on a collision course! Based on a real-life ghost story of a haunted library, Carmen DeSousa unveils the mystery of the haunting with a compelling tale of murder, betrayal and resolution. Can those with unfinished business from the past reach out from the other side and influence a current situation that will help them find peace? Detective Mark Waters is about to find out just how far that can go. Great story. A leisurely read with lots of emotional content. You get The Depot as a bonus leading up to The Library. ~ Sandy Penny on Amazon.com

What a read! Really enjoyed this great mystery. I needed something light to read and decided to read The Depot and The Library: Where life checks out. Was not disappointed at all. This was a great story and yet not overwhelming. Just enough twist and turns to give it the right amount of mystery, but not make it to where you get blindsided with something that came out if left field and doesn't make any sense. Everything fell right in place perfectly. Didn't take long to realize who Jay actually was. Loved every minute of this. ~ Margaret Williams on Amazon.com

Enjoyed! Carmen does a wonderful job with this book! A ghost mystery with twists and turns will leave you begging for the next one! Enjoyed reading this book and cannot wait for the next one! ~ Texas Rose on Amazon.com

About the book: 

It was supposed to be one letter. One time...

Cassidy Thatcher has just been fired. In an attempt to salvage her life, she flees to New York City to rebuild her career. Desperate for hope, she passes her time writing love letters to her fiance in the US Navy, but the Big Apple has other plans.

Grayson Daniels has a brilliant mind but is not so brilliant when it comes to relationships. After being asked to assist the Navy with nuclear research, he finds himself aboard an aircraft carrier where he accidentally intercepts a letter not meant for him. Cassidy's words enthrall him... But what started as an innocent fascination soon becomes an uncontrollable desire.

When Grayson learns of Cassidy's financial problems, he manipulates matters into his own hands. And when Cassidy's relationship with her fiance begins to crumble, Grayson is there to pick up the pieces, reminding her that love doesn't always have to be a sacrifice.

His secret isn't safe for long. Can a foundation be reconstructed on stolen words? Or will Cassidy mark their romance return to sender?

 

Reviews:

 

India Caedmon's enchanting prose provides an edge-of-your-seat love story. Stolen Words offers the perfect ingredients for an exceptional romance novel ―multi-dimensional protagonists, undeniable sexual tension and riveting plot twists. India Caedmon's enchanting prose provides an edge-of-your-seat love story. I truly enjoyed the interplay between Grayson Daniels and Miss Cassidy Thatcher. Daniels is handsome, brilliant, and delightfully clueless in the relationship department. Thatcher is smart, sassy, and eager to discover her unique voice. They are a match made in heaven. I’m waiting in greedy anticipation for the next book in the series!

The mind-blowing content! I've yet to decide a worthy description of how amazing this book is. With a clever plot and amazing character build, this book would not leave my hands. Those that will read this book will more than likely read it again just to fall in love with the characters all over again (except kyle). This is a book that proves that the nice guy wins. A scenario that most men believe doesn't happen. I can't wait for the next one.

Great read! Overall this was a really great read! I'm intrigued for the next book!

Redeeming Lottie: The Billingsley Series

A preview and sample of the audiobook
written by Melisssa Ellen - 
Host Addison Barnes

 

About the book: 

Things I never planned on happening in my life: getting married, being a mother to a house full of kids, and returning to my small hometown in Texas.

I especially never planned on seeing Tucker Monroe again. Sexy smile. Country charm. A man and a life I left behind for a reason. 

The only plan I had for myself was my career. My career as a buyer for one of the largest high-end department stores was the only commitment for which I had time. The only one I was willing to make. 

Now, being left with no choice but to return to my hometown, I'm finding it hard to remember why I left in the first place. Because all that's on my mind is Tucker. He is just as sexy. Just as charming. Just as dangerous as he used to be...

 

Reviews:

A great story about finding yourself and coming home! A great read about learning to love. My favorite takeaway: "... a person needs to know whether they succeed or fail, the worst thing to do would be to never try. The feeling of regret is worse than the feeling of failure. There’s the opportunity for growth and recovery with failure. There’s nothing to gain from regret.”

Wow, this book will have you laughing and crying! Lottie is an independent successful woman. She returns home after her mother passes away. She has been gone for 12 years and left some unfinished business between her and her high school boyfriend! Tucker has never stopped loving Lottie, but she broke his heart when she left without telling him. Can they find their way back to each other? Or will her insecurities ruin her chances at a happily ever after?

 

Fantastic fun emotional second chance! A fantastic well-written second chance romance that was entertaining and emotional. This engaging smooth flowing storyline included loss, betrayal, stubbornness, secrets, bullying, regrets, and lots of love. The characters were realistic, interesting and had lots of hot chemistry. I enjoyed their banter and was on the edge of my seat during their heartfelt journey towards a HEA, then the storyline twists as others interfere. I honestly and voluntarily recommend and am reviewing this ARC.

Destined: A Novel of the Tarot

A preview and sample of the audiobook
written by Gail Cleare - 
Host Addison Barnes

 

About the book: 

Follow Emily's journey to self-discovery, community, spirit, and love. A contemporary magic-realism romance. 

This is the year Emily Ross takes control of her destiny and learns to deliberately shape the future. Emily has always known she is different. She attracts spirits, has prophetic dreams and can sense people's thoughts. Longing to fit in, she hides her true self. But this changes when she takes a job at the fabulous curio shop owned by Henry Paradis, an occult scholar who becomes her spiritual mentor. Recognizing her talents as the valuable gifts they are, Henry teaches Emily to accept her magical nature and "look forward." Emily chooses the path to light. She finds lifelong friends, falls in love, learns the power of desire and intention, faces her worst fears and is swept toward awakening.
 

Reviews:

A wonderful story of destiny! Gail weaves a tarot card into each chapter in this lovely story of love, understanding and a spiritual path. It is not about the occult as some may associate with tarot. Do you believe in a predestined spiritual path? Read this intriguing story that is interesting from the first page. I am thoroughly enjoying it so far. I highly recommend this book. Leaves me feeling hopeful and delighted.

 

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! This is my 1st book by the author. It won't be the last!! I was able to escape into the story!

 

This has become my favorite tarot novel! I've got to say, my first take on Destined was that it was too good to be true. Everyone was either nice from the get-go or someone who would obviously come around as I followed the sunshiny plot.

But I read the book all the way through in a couple of hours because I loved the characters and couldn't put it down. And by now it's not only my favorite tarot novel, it's got pages coming out from rereading and I could really use a new copy! The tarot chapter headings work well and the tarot readings within the book are spot on. Very believable.

The Camel’s Back: A Nick Lawrence Novel

The Camel’s Back: A Nick Lawrence Novel

March 12, 2019

The Camel's Back:
A Nick Lawrence Novel

Host Marnye Young (The Audio Sorceress) interviews Brian Christopher Shea,  the author of "The Nick Lawrence Series", and Conner Goff, the narrator of "The Camel's Back"

 

About the book: Three people, each at their own breaking point, collide. The resulting impact will forever change their lives… if they can manage to survive it.

Declan Enright, a former police officer recently fired over a controversial shooting, has reached a breaking point in his life. Confronted with insurmountable financial burdens in the wake of his termination, Declan makes a desperate move to stabilize his situation for the benefit of his wife and three young daughters. Tapping into his ingrained skill set, forged during his time as an operator in the Navy’s most elite special operations unit, Declan crosses over the line of right and wrong, discovering that nothing is black and white. All while maintaining the balance of family and the needs of his non-communicative, three-year-old autistic daughter, Laney.

Nicholas Lawrence, an accomplished investigator with the FBI, voluntarily takes a reassignment from his human trafficking unit in Austin, Texas. His transfer brings him to the bank robbery unit based out of Connecticut’s New Haven field office. Nick’s decision to relocate, stemming from the recent death of his father, is done in an effort to care for his aging mother suffering from the onset of dementia. The burden of this decision is only slightly alleviated by the support of his partner, Isabella Martinez.

Khaled, a man who suffered an unimaginable loss several years back, makes the decision to leave his small village set in the foothills of Iraq’s Cheekha Dar Mountain. He has traveled to the United States in the hope of seeking closure to the event that haunts his daily existence. Khaled’s concept of closure is wrought with devastating consequences, plunging the country into a state of fear. The best chance at thwarting this threat rests in the unlikely alliance formed between Declan, Nick, and Isabella.

 

Editorial Reviews:

“A powerful and gripping novel. The character of Declan Enright is every bit as complex as the times we live in. Written from firsthand experience, Brian Christopher Shea gives us all the rare opportunity to see the internal and external struggles of those individuals who serve in the military and as first responders.” Kevin Cahill, Lt. Col. US Army Intelligence
 
 
“Shea gives you a front row seat to the raw emotion of those on the front line. His characters are genuine and are faced with real-world challenges set against a backdrop of a fast-paced thrill ride. His descriptive prose breaks down the technical aspect of the military and police lingo, putting it into plain language for all readers. Shea’s original character, Declan Enright, is as relentless as the author who created him. A must read!” Lt. Kevin Dillon (Ret.), Founder of LOCKUP Police Combat Systems

About the book: Creatus Series Boxed Set includes the complete five-book series!

For 4000 years, creatus have concealed themselves from the humans who hunted them almost to extinction. Unwittingly, one creatus will endanger them all...

As with most of his family, Derrick Ashton knows his future and what position he's destined to fill within his unique society. Everything changes, however, when he breaks one of his family's strictest laws and falls in love - with a human.

In his quest to protect the woman he can never have, a twist of faith propels him into a new role that will cause dissension among his family and endanger the anonymity that they've spent thousands of years protecting.

Now, he will risk everything to save the girl from humans and his own kind. The one thing he can't save her from, however...is herself.

Reviews:
 
Great Series! Loved this one and think it is fabulous the entire series can be purchased together!!! Definitely a book series for those that love the supernatural! --L Crumigan

Excellent Story! Action, suspense, mystery, and romance. Excellent series. The narration definitely made the story come alive. --Jessica Luemen

Interesting Twist! This is a unique idea for all the myths throughout history from vampire to nephilim to witches and humans. There weren't any slow parts. At first, I was a little bummed that the books went so fast in a story progression it too out what makes a good guy good but also bad. (vice versa with the bad guy having good parts). I can't say it's a romance because any romance happened fast without any satisfying tension. I am glad that there were limited sex scenes because that would have ruined my mental image of each character. I have been looking forward to this book but was too concerned about it based on the "star" reviews. I'm glad I bought it though. It's so much better than the average review. --Teresa

Paramedic Killer - Pat Patterson

Paramedic Killer - Pat Patterson

February 5, 2019

Paramedic Killer

Host Gwyn Olson interviews  Pat Patterson, the author of "Paramedic Killer" and Caroline Turner Cole, the narrator 

 

About the book: An early morning wreck. A grisly, fiery mess. Paramedic Jim Stockbridge does his best to save the family, but the flames drive him back. Now, with a family relative out for revenge and two beautiful women on his mind, Jim is about to learn that failure is not an option — especially when lives are on the line.

Jim Stockbridge could only stare at the terrible fiery wreck. He wanted to cry, to shake his fist and shout at the unleashed horror unfolding before his eyes, but he was a trained professional, and he had work to do.

Three bodies lay on the pavement beside him. Two were on fire...

About the Author: I am a paramedic, an educator, a family man, and an adventurer. I love life, and live to go fast. I used to race motorcycles, now I ride a mountain bike. I have sailed since I was nine, taken a million pictures, studied many topics, and bandaged a lot of people. I write about what I know. So if my stories are gritty, a little fast, colorful and full of adventure, it's because I've been there, on the water, in the woods, and on the street, with dying people in my arms, and that has left a deep impression on my heart. But at the end of the day, I'm just a paramedic with a lot of stories to tell. 

Review Quotes:

"Fast action from dramatic start to a thrilling climax. Sailors, medics, EMTs, and those in emergency medicine will delight in the accuracy of technical detail. Patterson delivers thrilling suspense fiction." ~ Donn Taylor, author of Lightning on a Quiet Night, Rhapsody in Red, and The Lazarus File.

Wow...Paramedic Killer is one intense book! I very much enjoyed this suspenseful fictional novel but had to put it down on occasion as some of the scenes are very graphic and mind-boggling. Jim Stockbridge is a paramedic who is challenged by his choice of career...that of saving lives as an ambulance driver. Six years ago, the unthinkable happens in a driving accident where seven people in one family are killed. A fire ensues after the crash and although there are a few survivors, two young men in particular, Billy and Bobby Canaday are badly disfigured. Even though Jim and his partner Devon made every effort to save their lives, the Canaday clan doesn't quite see things the same way. They decide to take justice into their own hands and with the philosophy of "an eye for an eye" they hunt down the two ambulance drivers to avenge the death of their loved ones...seven people are destined to pay. ~ Dolores Ayotte (Amazon Reviewer)
