Mandy Hemphill is living her dream, running the successful Rose Cottage Cafe in Orchardville, Texas, from the ground floor of a converted, old—and possibly haunted—downtown home. She even had plans to grow her business with a new outdoor patio…if only the mayor wouldn’t have turned her down.
So when the beloved mayor is found murdered, Mandy finds herself among the suspects. And now business at the cafe is dropping faster than a fallen soufflé. How can she prove her innocence and save the Rose Cottage Cafe?
Thankfully Ben, the new owner of The Orchardville Gazette, doesn’t believe she’s guilty. As the two of them set out to find the real killer, they uncover one small-town lie after the next. But the closer they get to learning the truth about who killed the mayor, the more in danger they find themselves.

My Review:
I really enjoyed this book. It was a quick read which was really nice since I have been kind of busy lately. The story was great with no boring parts for me. There was not tons of description and I really liked that. I love it when author's give you just enough to make things and places give you an idea but don't over power the story with filling you in on details that have nothing to do with the story. The books main characters are Mandy who owns the Rose Cottage Cafe, and Ben a new comer to town who is starting his own local newspaper, and of course the biggest part of the story is about the murder of Mayor William Walter's. Mandy is on the suspect list since she was upset with the Mayor for not allowing her to add on a patio to her restaurant, and she didn't mind letting people know she was mad about it. Ben and Mandy team up to do some amateur detective work to try to find the real killer and clear Mandy's name. My biggest let down in the book was there was made mention of Wilcox, the resident ghost at the Rose Cottage Cafe but he did not get a part in the book at all. I kept waiting for him to do something. He was almost like a forgotten part of the story. Yes I know the book was not a paranormal story, but since he was mentioned I would of liked to see him have a part of the book. Other then Wilcox's missing part I really enjoyed the book.

Give And Take by Emily Cyr Release Day Blitz

Give&TakeEbookAddison Fitzpatrick settled her first favor, a cataclysmic repayment that ended with hundreds of Pushers dead. Three months later, she receives a letter from the Vampire who betrayed her trust, asking her to save him.

The cryptic letter makes one fact perfectly clear – she has to find Lachlan, assuming he’s not already dead. In doing so, she is forced to do the one thing he asked her not to: involve Cannon.

But the search for Lachlan comes with a price. Addison is forced deeper into her debt, just as her life is put in jeopardy when a new danger surfaces. One from her past, stirring up inner demons threatening to take her back to hell.

Now Addison must find a way to kill a supernatural being she’s

never even heard of, all while protecting her heart from its love for Lachlan, and its confusing stirrings toward Cannon. It was so much easier to hate the vampires.

Things are not always what they seem in Addison’s world. The fight to save Lachlan will test her strength, her conviction, and her skill as a Pusher. Will she survive unscathed, or will she let the demons win?

NBTM Tour for Convergence by Michelle Grey

by Michelle Grey


GENRE: Romantic Suspense



Nothing comes between Tori Whitlock and her tornado chase season -- not a serial killer, not even the hot FBI agent who’s vowed to save her life. But Detective Jack Mathis plays tough. Ending this case isn’t just his job, it’s his mission. And he finally has the advantage.

He faces Tori’s hostility and objections head-on, interjecting himself into every aspect of her life, and leaving him no time to dwell on his own.

Through the twists and turns of the madman’s game, Tori is forced to adapt to her unwelcome circumstances. Still, she fights Jack's presence, and her attraction to him, as he tries to open doors better left closed.

For Tori and Jack, life and death decisions are part of their jobs. But, can they overcome their pasts and realize that there’s a difference between life and living?


Excerpt Two:

“What the hell makes you think you can just walk in and turn my life sideways, kiss me like we kissed last night, then act like nothing in the world has changed?”

He’d started to turn away, then came back, nostrils flared a mere inch from her face, forcing her against the computer table. She didn’t fear him, but if the vein ticking in his neck was any indication, she probably should have.

“Everything in the world has changed.” His deep voice was quiet, restrained. “It changed for you the day that email showed up in your inbox. You didn’t ask for that. I get it. But that doesn’t change the facts.”

She opened her mouth to interrupt but he was on a roll.

“This is exactly why I’ve done everything short of castration to try to keep my hands off of you. You think I’m immune to whatever this is? You think I don’t lie out here at night torturing myself with the knowledge that you’re thirty feet away from me, warm in your bed? Well, think again. Some nights, that’s all I think about.

“But having sex with you would complicate everything. Hell, that kiss turned my brain to mush. You intrigue me, fascinate me, draw me in ways I haven’t felt in a long, long time. I want time to know you. The real you. I won’t risk your life by getting sloppy. You can get angry with me all you want, but I’d rather have you alive and pissed off than dead on my watch.”


AUTHOR Bio and Links:

Michelle Grey is an avid lover of books, and had always thought that someday she would take up her pen and write romantic suspense. In 2009, Michelle was diagnosed with a rare form of ovarian cancer, and she realized that “somedays” aren’t guaranteed. This life changing event motivated Michelle to pursue her dream of becoming an author.  

In January of 2013, Michelle released her debut novel, Dangerous Ally.  

In September of 2013, the next book in her Long Shot Series, Unspoken Bonds, was published.

Now a cancer survivor, Michelle decided to use her platform to promote awareness of ovarian cancer and its symptoms.  In January 2014 she published, Are You Listening: A Personal Journal of an Ovarian Cancer Survivor.

Because it is so important to spread the word, one hundred percent of the proceeds from this $.99 ebook go directly to the Vicki Welsh Ovarian Cancer Fund to support their mission of fighting ovarian cancer through awareness, education, research and support.

Michelle lives in the Midwestern US with her husband of twenty-eight years and has four amazing and unique children, a wonderful son-in-law, and two beautiful granddaughters.  Michelle believes that any day that involves family, writing, or reading is a great day, indeed.



Interview With Michelle Grey
As a kid did you write or make up stories?

I did! First it was poems in elementary school, then yearbook in junior high, and newspaper staff then editor in high school. I’ve always enjoyed telling stories, but fiction has always been my favorite.

Where does most of your Character inspiration come from? Wow – you name it. Tori, my heroine in Convergence, came loosely from watching Reed Timmer on storm chaser shows. Other characteristics come from people I work and live with. Usually, it’s a single thing – a quirk, a personality trait, a saying – then the character blossoms from there.

What is your favorite spot to write? Lately, it’s been so nice here in the Midwestern US, that I’ve enjoyed writing outside. But since we can’t always count on the weather being friendly, I also have an office in my home that is my go-to place. It’s Paris-themed and never fails to put me in the right mood to write.

What advice would you give budding writers? First of all, get words on the page. Don’t worry about them being perfect, or even good when you’re getting started. Secondly, I would encourage anyone seriously interested in a writing career to get into a local writers group and listen and learn from the professionals.

Burned By Magic by Jasmine Walt Release Day Blitz

Burned By Magic KCD Graphic

Burned By MagicIn the city of Solantha, mages rule absolute, with shifters considered second-class citizens and humans something in between. No one outside the mage families are allowed to have magic, and anyone born with it must agree to have it stripped from them to avoid execution.

Sunaya Baine, a shifter-mage hybrid, has managed to keep her unruly magic under wraps for the last twenty-four years. But while chasing down a shifter-hunting serial killer, she accidentally loses control of her magic in front of witnesses, drawing the attention of the dangerous and enigmatic Chief Mage.

Locked up in the Chief Mage’s castle and reduced to little more than a lab rat, Sunaya resists his attempts to analyze and control her at every turn. But she soon realizes that to regain her freedom and catch the killer, she must overcome her hatred of mages and win the most powerful mage in the city to her side.

About Jasmine Walt

Jasmine WaltI'm obsessed with books, chocolate, and sharp, pointy objects. Somehow, those three things melded together in my head and transformed into a desire to write. Usually fantastical stuff, with a healthy dose of action and romance. My characters are a little (okay, a lot) on the snarky side, and they swear, but they mean well. Even the villains sometimes.

When I'm not working on my next book, you can find me working on my dao sword form, spending time with my family, or binge-watching superhero shows on Netflix. I love to hear from my readers, so if you've got a question or just want to say hi, feel free to contact me via my website at

ROHEGO Premium Standing Desk and Kitchen Anti-Fatigue Mat

I have been wanting a nice floor mat in my kitchen for a while now. I spend a lot of time in my kitchen. I love to cook and I do not cook quick box junk. Everything I cook is home made. So sometimes I can spend over an hour preparing a meal. This floor mat really has made standing at my counter and stove a lot more comfortable for me. I have seen several mats like this one that feel like they are loaded with lead. This one is not real heavy and it does stay in place without all that weight. This mat is very easy to clean. It has like a rubbery feel to it, so I can just run the mop, swifter, or even a damp cloth over it and it it clean again. It is very comfortable to stand on as well.

I LOVE U Throw Pillow Case

I love everything about this pillow slip. It is made very well and the saying is awesome. I was tor over whether I wanted it on my couch or my bed. My bed finally won out though. It looks great there among the other pillows. I have burgundy pillow cases and a black comforter and this pillow case just really stands out with the off white background on my bed. It is an 18 X 18 inch square pillow slip. I used and old bed pillow I had to stuff it with. It was one of the thin pillows so I folded it in half and it went right in. There is a nice hidden zipper across the bottom to let the pillow in and out of. The slip itself is washable.
