Synopsis

Would you abandon your present for a second chance at your past? Cecelia Reynolds has spent most of her life trying to forget the commitment-phobic man who broke her heart. It wasn’t easy, but eventually she did it, or so she thought… As Cecelia and her husband gather for a friend’s wedding, her perfect world is thrown into complete turmoil. Even though it’s been twenty years since she last laid eyes on Keith Emerson, all it takes is one glance for her to feel emotions she thought were long gone. When Keith ends up officiating the ceremony, she quickly realizes his message of love is directed at her, not the happy couple. But can she believe him? We live our entire lives thinking we know ourselves. But do we ever really? As secrets and lies cause Cecelia’s world to spin completely out of control, she is forced to seek advice from the most unlikely ally. In the process, she must confront the demons of her past and the events that shaped her into the woman she is now. Will she finally learn the real meaning of love, friendship, and family? While this book is a sequel to Plan Bea, it also reads as a standalone. Free Book

We live our entire lives thinking we know those closest to us. But do we ever really? On the outside, Annabel O'Conner has it all - the perfect husband, two adorable children, an amazing job, and a mother from hell! Just when she gives up trying to regain her overbearing mother's love, an unexpected call turns her world around and makes Annabel question everything she believes about her life. Could falling in love give a cold, stubborn, and selfish woman a second chance to open her heart back up to her family? Beatrice Buchanan has spent more years than she can remember distancing herself from everyone close to her. She barely has a relationship with her grandchildren. The only time she manages to have a one way conversation with her daughter is during her weekly fifteen-minute commute to the nail salon. When Bea meets Walter on a cruise she realizes there may be more to life than designer clothes, killer handbags, and impressing the ladies at her posh country club. As the mother and daughter duo team up to plan "Long Island's wedding of the year" they confront the secrets and lies that have defined them. This humorous emotionally honest women's contemporary fiction novel will tug at your heartstrings and the twist ending will shock you. Download Plan Bea for FREE

Justice by Another Name by E. C. Hanes


My Review

Good read. Hard to put down. Had me from the first page. Interesting characters and good story flow. Has intrigue, mystery, likeable characters and not so likeable characters. Getting to the end to get answers was taking a complex journey through the mysteries of what happened and why. Would recommend reading!




Justice by Another Name
By E.C. Hanes

THRILLING MURDER MYSTERY SET IN ONE OF THE SOUTH’S MOST CONTROVERSIAL INDUSTRIES

If Lana Reavis can’t get justice for her husband’s death, will she get vengeance?
In the second title by distinguished North Carolina author E.C. Hanes, Justice by Another Name [March 7, 2017, RaneCoat Press] readers are submerged in the profitable but much-maligned hog industry in North Carolina when Paul Reavis’ suspicious workplace death is followed up by the similarly questionable demise of his own son.
A thunderous, unforgettable opening sets the breakneck pace of Justice by Another Name, a page-turner that keeps readers guessing to the very last sentence. Hanes knows eastern North Carolina—its people, culture, and geography—and brings it to life with wonderful documentary precision that authenticates every word.
Lana Reavis, who believes her husband was murdered and her son the victim of deliberate negligence, enlists the aid of her long-ago boyfriend, Will Moser, who is currently chief deputy of Hogg County and the heir apparent to the local sheriff.
As Will’s investigation unfolds, suspicious activities and cover-ups begin to emerge. All evidence points to Oris Martin, the powerful owner of Martin Farms, a huge hog-production enterprise and Hogg County’s largest employer, as the mastermind. Despite political pressure and physical threats to look the other way, Will continues his search for what really happened. Meanwhile, Lana, convinced that Oris will be beyond the reach of justice, devises a plan to avenge her family and destroy everything precious to Oris Martin.
Whether it has been greed, ego, or some psychosis, the human urge to accumulate power, which is at the center of my book, has been the main source of evil and primary fuel for mankind’s continual self destruction,” says Hanes. 

E.C. “Redge” Hanes began his business career working for the famous apparel company started by his great grandfather after graduating from Duke University in 1967 and a tour in Viet Nam in 1969 and 1970 where he was awarded a bronze star. Hanes has served on the boards of several prestigious wildlife conservation, environmental, educational, and arts-related organizations in North Carolina. His debut novel, Billy Bowater, was based on the behind-the-scenes politics of North Carolina with particular focus on the period dominated by the late senator Jesse Helms. Hanes lives in Winston-Salem, NC.

Series: Friends

forever-amazon
She’s all I could ever want…
I have a reputation around school. Cold. Untouchable. Unfeeling. Only one girl could ever make me want to change and that’s Amanda Winters. Too bad I broke her heart and drove her away.
So to get through the rest of my days in high school, I tell myself I need to focus on more important things. Like taking our football team to championships. Get accepted to the college of my choice. And finish my senior year without wanting to run away from my problems.
But your problems chase after you no matter where you go. And it’s a lot harder when you fight them alone. The longer I go without Amanda, the more I miss her. Her smile. Her laughter. The things she said. How she looked at me like I was the only person who mattered. The way she made me feel…
Why can’t I have everything, including the girl? I’m determined to make things right. And make Amanda mine…
Forever.

Cards From Khloe's Flower Shop by Isabella Louise Anderson

Good read. Liked the characters and how their journeys were written. Good story flow. Good concept surrounding a flower shop as a pinnacle point for each character to grown and move forward with their own emotions and issues. Highly recommend!
About the Book

As the owner of a successful florist shop, Khloe Harper trusts her instincts. She has a strong bond with her family and friends, but after being betrayed by her last love, she's kept herself at arms’ length from romance. When dashing entertainment attorney Derek Thomas walks into her store, Khloe’s interest is piqued. What at first seems like a business relationship quickly turns into romance, and Derek slowly plucks away the petals she’s been hiding behind. Just as Khloe lets down her guard, she discovers that Derek may not be worthy of her love after all.

Frumpy Connie Albright has a faux fascination with an imaginary man named Walt, thinking that by sending herself flowers from him she’ll feel less out-of-place with the “mean girls” she works with. When she comes face to face with her possible prince charming and thinking she might have a happy ending, when a truth is revealed, she wonders if she’ll ever have a Cinderella story.

A recently widowed senior, Gabby Lewis, isn't ready to give up on love—which means releasing herself from survivor's guilt and taking a chance on finding happiness and companionship again. After signing up for an online dating site for senior citizens, much to her surprise, she’s matched with Harry, an energetic and loving man, who quickly eases himself into her heart. Will Gabby take the leap of falling in love again, knowing it’s possible to have two loves of her life?

As each woman’s story develops through flowers and cards sent from Khloe's shop during the Fall months, they begin to learn that love can only truly blossom when you trust your heart.

By A.M. Willard
Boys,Toys-OhMyVol2(blue)Ebook.jpg
Genre: Romance

Is this what my life has become… Selling novelty items to couples…

I walked away from it all - the job, and the guy because he thought I was a stripper… The problem, I still want the guy, and I still blush at the word penis. Not as much, but the heat still rises when I stop to think about what I’m saying.

Yes, this is my new life and I have to find the confidence to live it like I own it.

I knew allowing her to walk away that night was a mistake… Now I have to find a way to show that I truly care about her, and maybe then she’ll understand that I can’t live my life without her.

The problem is she only wants to be friends, if that’s the only way I get her then it’ll have to be enough.
