Saturday Selection ~ Whiskey Rebellion by Liliana Hart

Saturday, April 15th, 2017

518kGLnHQfL__SY346_I’ve had this book for a bit now and each time I see another drop in this series I remind myself I have to start from the beginning. Well, enough putting it off. I’m curling up with Addison Holmes and jumping into her world. This is the first book in the series.

 

WHISKEY REBELLION: AN ADDISON HOLMES MYSTERY

My name is Addison Holmes, and I teach history at James Madison High School in Whiskey Bayou, Georgia. You might be under the assumption that my life went to the dogs when my fiancé left me at the altar for the home economics teacher, or when I got notice that my apartment building was going to be condemned, or even when I was desperate enough to strip to my unmentionables to earn some extra cash. The truth is that I’m pretty much used to disasters following me around on a daily basis, but I could have gone without finding my principal dead in the parking lot of a seedy gentlemen’s club.

After the initial shock of finding my first dead body, which included throwing back shots of Jack Daniels like it was water, I decided to take stock of my life. I was in a desperate situation and if the school board ever found out I’d been a stripper, even a bad stripper, I’d be jobless as well as fiancé-less and homeless. Fortunately, I had a friend who felt sorry enough for me to give me a job doing some surveillance work at her detective agency. Not to mention the fact that I was now able to stick my nose into other people’s business for a good cause, find a murderer, and pick up helpful tips from an incredibly attractive detective.

Come check out my story and be thankful your life is relatively normal.

 

I’ve been a huge fan of @Liliana_Hart for a while now, her writing always puts a smile on my face. So I’m thrilled to start up a new series (to me) from her.

Saturday, April 1st, 2017

51+GoZhYpVL__SY346_Starting off this month with a new series for me. Accidentally Flirting with the CEO is the first book in the Whirlwind Romance series.

I’m looking forward to reading this one, check out the blurb.

ACCIDENTALLY FLIRTING WITH THE CEO (Whirlwind Romance Series)

What happens when a seductive e-mail goes to the wrong recipient—your boss?

If Jess Tandon were any hotter, he’d be a fire hazard! The sexy, arrogant president of TLC Advertising is more than just delicious eye-candy. He’s caught the eyes and heart of his normally-play it safe executive assistant, Alexa Worthington.

Too bad the only sex Alexa is having is safe text. She’s only just gotten over tragic heartbreak in her life, but she wants to move on now. She takes a romance writing class for therapy and creates a sizzling fantasy love scene starring her boss, Jess, and herself. When she e-mails it to a friend to critique, it ends up going to the wrong recipient—to Jess himself. Is this a disaster waiting to happen—or the beginning of something too hot to handle?

Right??? Sounds terrific.

I can’t wait to jump into this book and check out a new to me author, @shadonna  thanks for snagging my attention with this series. So excited to read this one.

What was another murder in Chicago?

A dead man clutching a pint of whiskey on the Ashland Avenue sidewalk wasn’t new. It shouldn’t have been enough to keep troubled Detective Shannon Rourke and her brother from making their escape to Sweden.

Saturday Selection ~ The Borzoi Killings by Paul Batista

Saturday, March 11th, 2017

While I’m firmly against killing dogs in stories (I’ve been known to put books down for that) this one intrigued me, so am checking this out this week by Paul Batista:

882724306

Now, renowned trial lawyer Raquel Rematti must take on the defense of the man the media has dubbed “The Blade of the Hamptons.” Not only must she navigate a media circus to take on one of the wealthiest families in the country, she must also protect Suarez, and herself, from ruthless people bent on lethal revenge; all while straddling the dangerous line between concerned involvement and forbidden passion for her client.

Saturday Selection ~ Because of Miss Bridgerton by Julia Quinn

Saturday, February 25th, 2017

We’re going historical this week. I love this author and can’t say enough wonderful things about the Bridgerton family. So, yes, excited to have this read on my schedule.

453156584

Sometimes you find love in the most unexpected of places…

This is not one of those times.

Everyone expects Billie Bridgerton to marry one of the Rokesby brothers. The two families have been neighbors for centuries, and as a child the tomboyish Billie ran wild with Edward and Andrew. Either one would make a perfect husband… someday.

Sometimes you fall in love with exactly the person you think you should…

Or not.

There is only one Rokesby Billie absolutely cannot tolerate, and that is George. He may be the eldest and heir to the earldom, but he’s arrogant, annoying, and she’s absolutely certain he detests her. Which is perfectly convenient, as she can’t stand the sight of him, either.

But sometimes fate has a wicked sense of humor…

Because when Billie and George are quite literally thrown together, a whole new sort of sparks begins to fly. And when these lifelong adversaries finally kiss, they just might discover that the one person they can’t abide is the one person they can’t live without…

Saturday Selection ~ Barefoot in White by Roxanne St. Claire

Saturday, February 18th, 2017

Contemporary this week. Another amazing author to me. Roxanne St. Claire.

This one is the first in her Barefoot Bay Brides series.

1434948757

Meet the Barefoot Brides — three destination wedding planners who are experts at arranging dreamy “I do’s” but haven’t found their own happily ever after…yet. All that’s about to change in Barefoot Bay, a beloved tropical setting for heartbreak and happiness from New York Times bestselling author Roxanne St. Claire.

Willow Ambrose has fought a battle with the scale for much of her life, but she has finally won the war. She hasn’t just cut calories — she’s cut all ties to her past, too, and successfully carved out a new body and a new life. But when she comes face to face with someone who left an indelible mark on her heart years before, all that threatens to crumble.

Navy SEAL Nick Hershey is on medical leave, doing a friend a favor as a stand in “man of honor” at a beach wedding. He might not be that interested in the nuptials, but the wedding planner catches his eye the minute they meet. When he realizes Willow is a girl he knew in college — and a girl he unintentionally hurt to the core — he knows he has some making up to do.

Willow has learned how to beat every temptation…but Nick’s sweet as candy kisses just might be the one thing she can’t resist. However, the closer they get, the more the past threatens to tear them apart. Nick and Willow learn the hard way that they can’t change history, but does that mean they won’t have a future?

Saturday Selection ~ The Atlantis Gene by A.G. Riddle

Saturday, February 11th, 2017

51sluf5zjmlA new to me author, A.G. Riddle, but hey, I love sci-fi/thriller books so am looking forward to delving deep into this one.

Read the novel that started it all. The Atlantis Gene is the first book in The Origin Mystery, the global bestselling trilogy that is now in development to be a major motion picture.

Over 2,000,000 copies sold worldwide * Translated in 23 languages * Published in 32 countries
_____________________________________________________

THE GREATEST MYSTERY OF ALL TIME…
THE HISTORY OF HUMAN ORIGINS…
WILL BE REVEALED.

_____________________________________________________

70,000 years ago, the human race almost went extinct.
We survived, but no one knows how.
Until now.
The countdown to the next stage of human evolution is about to begin, and humanity might not survive this time.
_____________________________________________________

The Immari are good at keeping secrets. For 2,000 years, they have hidden the truth about human evolution. They have also searched for an ancient enemy–a threat that could wipe out the human race. Now the search is over.

Off the coast of Antarctica, a research vessel discovers a mysterious structure buried deep in an iceberg. It has been there for thousands of years, and something is guarding it. As the Immari rush to execute their plan, a brilliant geneticist makes a discovery that could change everything.

Dr. Kate Warner moved to Jakarta, Indonesia to escape her past. She has yet to recover from what happened to her, but she has made an incredible breakthrough: a cure for autism. Or so she thinks. What she has found is far more dangerous–for her and the entire human race. Her work could be the key to the next stage of human evolution. In the hands of the Immari, it would mean the end of humanity as we know it.

Agent David Vale has spent ten years trying to stop the Immari. Now he has run out of time. His informant is dead. His organization has been infiltrated. His enemy is hunting him. But when David receives a coded message related to the Immari attack, he risks everything to save the one person that can help him solve it: Dr. Kate Warner.

Together, Kate and David must race to unravel a global conspiracy and learn the truth about the Atlantis Gene… and human origins. Their journey takes them to the far corners of the globe and into the secrets of their pasts. The Immari are close on their heels and will stop at nothing to obtain the research Kate has done and force the next stage of human evolution–even if it means killing 99.9% of the world population. David and Kate can stop them… if they can trust each other. And stay alive.
