Book Tour: Cabin 12




Title: Cabin 12 (Rock Point #2) 
Author: Freya Barker 
Genre: Romantic Suspense 
Release Date: September 13, 2018 
Cover Designer: Freya Barker 



Even at thirty seven, with a challenging but rewarding career as a paramedic, Bella Gomez is treated as the baby of the family. It’s made her allergic to anyone meddling, so she chooses to keep mostly to herself. Unfortunately that doesn’t stop her family from inserting themselves in her life. Nor does it deter the one man she knows she shouldn’t get close to from showing up on her doorstep.
Jasper Greene, an FBI agent with the La Plata County field office, doesn’t even know the meaning of family. His team is his family, which is why—when his boss asks him to keep an eye on his baby sister—Jasper readily complies. Even when the sister in question is a spectacularly developed princess with plenty of attitude.
With a shooter on the loose and corruption running rampant, Bella is a magnet for trouble, and Jasper finds himself with his hands full—in more ways than one.



“Well shit.” This from the bed. I swing around and take my first good look at her. Her legs are bare. A large bandage is covering her left thigh that my eyes zoom in on. “What the hell, Bella?” “It’s nothing,” she says, trying to cover up with the sheet tucked under her while shooting daggers at me. “Besides, you’re a good one to talk. You look like you were run over by a tank and shot for good measure.” She takes a thorough inventory of my bare torso where even just the impact of the bullets on my kevlar vest are showing up in vivid color. “We’re not talking about me.” “You may not be, but I am. Jesus, Jasper—were you in a gun fight or something?” Or something is right. I dig through my pocket to fish out my phone. “What are you doing?” she swats at me as I’m scrolling through to find Damian’s number. “Don’t you be calling my brother, Jasper Greene!” I grab her hand as it flies by again and hold on tight as I lean in. “Then you’d better start talking,” I threaten her without any compunction.

This was a quick read that packed a punch. It had everything you want in a book for younger kids. Action and funny moments to keep their attention while also providing lessons and even having some mystery and spook along the way. It was a fun read!

Book Tour: Witch Dance by @LoriCraneHess #review #giveaway


 photo witch-dance-cover_zpszei9fpzr.jpg
Historical Thriller
Date Published: 9/15/18

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

Just south of Tupelo, Mississippi on the Natchez Trace lies a place of mystery called Witch Dance.

When Thomas and Margaret Speedwell took their twins to Witch Dance for a weekend camping trip, they never imagined they would be pulled into a vortex of witchcraft, tragedy, and karma. One of the girls goes missing; the other won’t say what happened on the other side of the hill.

The tragedy pulls together a cast of characters from Margaret’s childhood and beyond – Choctaw and Chickasaw Indians, Toltec ancestors, the extinct Hopewell tribe.

With the help of a childhood friend, a concerned newspaper reporter, and visions by a strange old woman, a two-thousand-year-old mystery begins to unfold, uncovering missing children throughout generations. Who is taking them? Could it be the infamous witches of Witch Dance?



Review

An ominous looking cover with a story that really highlights that. There is a lot going on in this novel, it takes place in a different time which takes some backstory and descriptive writing from the author to help the reader feel like they are there. You have Indian Tribes, Witches, and so much more. I love the way that the author managed to meld together different aspects it made for a very active read. There are tons of surprises laced throughout which I loved. Mystery and intrigue. I loved it!

Something evil has taken root in Ashland, Oregon. And with it, an uneasy feeling sweeps down on Detective Winston Radhauser. If someone doesn’t intervene, that evil will continue to multiply until the unthinkable happens.

While on vacation with his wife and their newborn son, Detective Radhauser receives a call from Captain Murphy--a high school kid has been branded with a homophobic slur and is hospitalized in Ashland, a small town known for, and proud of, its diversity. And this is only the beginning. White supremacy, homophobia and racism are one thing. But murder is something else.

Radhauser will do whatever it takes to find the perpetrators and restore his town’s sense of safety. With such hostile opposition, can he succeed and will justice be done?



Review

Get your thinking cap ready! I really enjoyed the individuality Susan Clayton-Goldner brought to this novel. It manages to set its self apart from other Mystery novels I've read recently.

So many aspects that make the novel diverse and quite a bit to think about, but I thoroughly enjoyed getting lost in.

A wonderful cast of characters and a mystery that will keep you on your toes. 


About the Author

 photo Susan Clayton-Goldner_zpsmguslyeu.jpg
Susan Clayton-Goldner was born in New Castle, Delaware and grew up with four brothers along the banks of the Delaware River. She has been writing poems and short stories since she could hold a pencil and was so in love with writing that she became a creative writing major in college.

Prior to an early retirement which enabled her to write full time, Susan worked as the Director of Corporate Relations for University Medical Center in Tucson, Arizona. It was there she met her husband, Andreas, one of the deans in the University of Arizona's Medical School. About five years after their marriage, they left Tucson to pursue their dreams in 1991--purchasing a 35-acres horse ranch in the Williams Valley in Oregon. They spent a decade there. Andy rode, trained and bred Arabian horses and coached a high school equestrian team, while Susan got serious about her writing career.

Through the writing process, Susan has learned that she must be obsessed with the reinvention of self, of finding a way back to something lost, and the process of forgiveness and redemption. These are the recurrent themes in her work.

After spending 3 years in Nashville, Susan and Andy now share a quiet life in Grants Pass, Oregon, with her growing list of fictional characters, and more books than one person could count. When she isn't writing, Susan enjoys making quilts and stained-glass windows. She says it is a lot like writing--telling stories with fabric and glass.

Book Tour: Days of Reign by Elisa Hansen @ElisaHansenAU #dystopian #bookreview #giveaway


 photo Days of Reign ebook cover_zpsalzicusl.jpg
Dystopian Fiction
Date Published: June 29, 2018

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

Described as Dune meets The Hunger Games, this epic narrative of survival will have you in suspense and intrigue. Set in the futuristic world of Eldon, our hero, Zelenka, is forced to abandon everything she loves for a chance at freedom.

With parallels to today’s global crises, this book will have you questioning; would you risk it all?

It is year 2107 and the planet which was once called Earth (now Eldon), is ruled by a single, oppressive government.  Many of those who suffered under the tyrannical rule of Eldon, have fled to a neighbouring planet, Amaryllis, and attempted to grow a utopian society.

Relations between the two worlds are fraught.  Each believe the other to be evil.  Each believe it is their responsibility to save humankind from the other.

Within this interplanetary political backdrop, lives Zelenka.  The Eldonian teenager is forced to hide her intelligence and knowledge.  Na├»ve and idealistic, she has never fitted into Eldonian life.  She longs to openly be herself but is terrified of the government’s harsh rules and punishments.

“Zelenka is a true hero to me,” says the author, Elisa Hansen. “She has a strength of character that I see in many women facing similar fates today. Facets of the Eldon society mirror the present. Our heroes should not always the ones who succeed, but the people with true intent, and drive, to change.”



Review

Elisa Hansen has a real talent for bringing to life characters that a reader just connects with and roots for from the very beginning. 

The plot is fast paced and keeps you furiously flipping pages. Great read! This one will keep you guessing and make you think. Its never what it seems and there are so many moving parts.
