My Review:

I can't give enough praise to Deborah Brown for her great series. Trouble is always finding Fab and Madison. I really enjoy reading about their adventures and can't get enough. This is a series I hope never ends. This book will pull you in and not let you go. I finished it fast because I couldn't wait to see what happened next. Really great read! It gets harder to review this series because I can't say enough good things about it.


About the Author


I've been writing, in one way or another for as long as I can remember; writing poetry, short stories, a romance novel secretly stashed under the bed and sappy love letters. Fiction should be fun. I wanted to create the perfect beach book, to make the reader laugh, cry and cheer... and then run out and tell their friends about it.

My love of reading began when I was seven, the day I opened the cover of my first Mrs. Piggle Wiggle book. Mrs. P gave lessons to other children in how to behave and to me I learned to love the written word. I live with my family and demon children aka rescue cats in South Florida.

Discovering Delilah by Melissa Foster (Harborside Nights Book 2) - Book Tour/Giveaway

2
COMMENTS







HARBORSIDE NIGHTS is a sexy, hot, and evocatively real New Adult Romance series that follows a group of friends who have known one another for years as “summer” friends, and now come together after college to build their lives. They’re tough, edgy, and accepting—most of the time. This series is written in the loving, raw, and emotional voice readers have come to love by New York Times & USA Today bestselling, award-winning author Melissa Foster.

DISCOVERING DELILAH is an #LGBT New Adult Romance .

After the death of her parents on the day of her college graduation, Delilah Armstrong thought she could finally follow her heart and come out to her closest friends, but the guilt of going against her parents’ beliefs haunts her. The feelings she has for her best friend,

Ashley, are stronger than anything she’s felt before, but Delilah has never even kissed a girl, and fear stops her at every turn. . Ashley Carver promised herself that she would never again date another girl who wasn’t out, but that was before she met intoxicatingly sweet and sexy Delilah.

When another girl offers to teach Delilah the ropes, it changes Delilah’s whole world and gives her the courage to go after the only girl she really wants. But coming out isn’t as easy as Delilah imagined, and moving past her parents’ death and the feelings of guilt she is left with is even harder. The intense passion between Ashley and Delilah is too strong to deny, but coming together means risking everything. .

Discovering Delilah is an edgy, evocative, romantic story of friendship, family, and the courage to love.

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**

“Melissa Foster does a great job addressing the (still) sensitive subject of same sex relationships and the stereotypes, prejudices and sometimes even consequences of being in one. But this book doesn’t only focus on that one topic. You will also see the beauty of friendship, the love of family and one’s metamorphosis from confusion and pain to self-discovery and acceptance. No matter if you are heterosexual, homosexual or asexual, this is a must read for everybody!” 
— review from Goodreads by Marlene Engel

My Review:

By now I think everyone knows that I really enjoy reading Melissa Foster's books. This one was a little different from me because it was a female/female relationship in the book. I did really enjoy it and was happy to get to know Delilah and read her love story. Delilah comes out in the book and finds a girl that she loves. It is a very well written sexy love story. Melissa Foster did not disappoint with this book and I am anxiously awaiting the next.

NEW RELEASE....
Find your way home...

1891—Living separately for three years, fourteen-year-old twins, Katherine and Tommy Arthur, have done their best to make each boarding house feel like home. But unrest grows as they are driven to questionable actions just to survive. Meanwhile their desperate mother is confronted with breaking yet another promise to her children. Then a miracle descends. Hope rises on a cold, rainy night and changes everything. If Jeanie could just get word to Katherine and Tommy, she knows she can set their lives right again. Agitators, angels, and dangerous “saviors” illuminate the Arthurs’ unmatched determination and smarts.

1905—Though she tries to forget the awful years that hurt so much, the memories still haunt Katherine. Now, tearful mourners at her mother’s funeral force her to revisit a time in her life that both harmed and saved her in the most unexpected ways. Tommy grieves his mother’s passing as well. He too is thrust backward, compelled to rediscover the events in his life that shaped the man he has become. Will he commit to reconstructing his broken life? The Arthurs come to understand that forgiveness is the only way back to hope, the only way to find all that was good in the misfortune that transformed their lives forever.

My Review:

I was hooked to this book from the beginning. I really love how well Kathleen Shoop can take me back in time. It is a book with awesome character development and very vivid descriptions. I really enjoyed this follow up to The Last Letter. I am a person that really enjoys history and sometimes even think I was born in the wrong century. The Road Home made me really want to be in the 1800's. It is a must read for anyone who loves history and a good story of hope and redemption. Loved it!



"Kathleen Shoop has woven a story that crosses over several years with events that define lives. Katherine and Tommy are two characters that will stand out in my mind for a long time. The way the story blends back and forth between the two time periods is seamless and enjoyable, slowly painting a whole picture for the reader to see. I have not read the first book in this series, but I honestly feel that this one stands alone beautifully. You will take a journey with these characters that will evoke emotions and entertain you. This is my favorite kind of historical fiction; emotional and fun at the same time. I would highly recommend this to anyone who loves a great book."

About Pizza Ranch:



Adrie Groeneweg had a dream that started in Hull, IA, in 1981, when he was just 19 years old.  It was simple.  Why does everyone have to drive out of town to get a pizza?  With just six specialty and single topping pizza recipes developed by Adrie's mother, Lorraine, Pizza Ranch was born.  Pizza Ranch's vision and mission is to glorify God by positively impacting the world and to give every guest a legendary experience.  They have 190+ locations across 13 states including Iowa, Minnesota, South Dakota, North Dakota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Nebraska, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, Montana, Wyoming, and Colorado. 

About The Living Hope CD project: 



On June 2, 2015, Pizza Ranch released a CD called Living Hope containing twelve songs from many of their favorite Christian artists.  Most of the songs are brand-new and written exclusively for this CD around the theme of Hope.  Artists include Colton Dixon, Francesca Batistelli, Ellie Holcomb, Sidewalk Prophets, Kevin Max, Bart Millard, Passion Band featuring Kristian Stanfill, Michael W. Smith, and Mark Schultz.  

The CD will be available to purchase for $5 plus tax exclusively in Pizza Ranch restaurants or for download at pizzaranch.com/livinghope through August 31.  

From Adrie Groeneweg, President & CEO of Pizza Ranch, Inc.:  "This album has a very special meaning for Pizza Ranch.  Although Pizza Ranch is not in the music business, many things have been happening, conversations have been taking place and doors have been opening for this album.  Through these events, I believe it was obvious that God has been behind this for His specific purpose and putting it on our hearts to collectively create this project.  As such, we call this our miracle album, Living Hope."

My Reivew:

There is a local Pizza Ranch but it is closer to my mom an hour away. She has been there and loves it and I sure hope to go next time I visit. This album is great on the road music. My whole family has really enjoyed it and plans to use it on our small trip this weekend and next. I love listening to it just around town too. There are some really good songs.

My Review:

I am absolutely loving all of Melissa Foster's books! I have never read such great romance books before I was introduced to hers. This one is no different. It was a great read and I really got into it and finished it pretty fast. I have had a hard time finding time to read but I always find time for her books. This is book one in the Peaceful Harbor Bradens. I really enjoy Nate and Jewel's story because Melissa has it well developed and it was fun to read. There were some emotional parts but the ending was great. I am looking forward to the next book.

Breakfast is Better Gluten Free With Canyon Bakehouse

*Disclosure: I was provided complimentary samples in order to facilitate my review. These are my opinions and experiences and yours may differ.*








Every morning I have a bagel with cream cheese on it. I was so happy when Canyon Bake House contacted me with some bagels and brownie bites. They sent me some of their original gluten free bagels, everything gluten free bagel, and brownie bites to try out. I replaced my usual bagel with theirs each morning. 

Canyon Bake House makes a lot of gluten free products from bread and bagels to hamburger buns and muffins. I have gotten to try their bread and muffins and was not disappointed with them. The companies' mission to get people to love bread again. I am not sensitive to gluten but for some reason I really enjoy gluten free products over those with gluten. 


I really enjoyed both flavors of bagel but my favorite was the packed everything bagel. It was so flavorful and yummy. It went great with my morning coffee. I did not get a picture of the original bagel for some reason but it was also yummy. These bagels did not leave a bad taste in your mouth like other brands I have tried. They were soft and fluffy and were great toasted.



Brownie bites are small muffin like brownies that are heaven in your mouth. They are so flavorful and yummy that my daughter ate 3 in one sitting. She was their biggest fan and really liked them. I was lucky that I got to try one. They made great snacks and desert. I liked that they were easy to pack on picnics.




 My pictures do not give them justice. They were not hard brownies but soft moist ones that melted in my mouth. I think they would be great for when school is back in session for after school snacks. My family enjoyed all of the products and you can learn more about them and connect with the company using the links below.

COMMENTS






NEW BOOK RELEASE....

When New York reporter Paige MacKenzie heads to Tres Palomas, New Mexico, the resort of Agua Encantada seems a perfect destination to combine work with pleasure. A quick article on the healing mineral springs and a few leisurely soaking sessions in the resort’s soothing waters promises well-deserved rest and relaxation.

Paige is immediately intrigued with a local artist's one-of-a-kind jewelry designs, as well as weekly gatherings to hear legends from an elderly storyteller. But when identical jewelry shows up on another guest and the storyteller goes missing, Paige's R&R is soon redefined as restlessness and risk. Curious and persistent by nature, Paige is convinced there's a connection. Enlisting the help of a flirtatious resort worker seems like a good idea until it begins to test her loyalty to her favorite cowboy, Jake Norris. Will an unexpected overnight trip to Tierra Roja Casino lead her to the answers she seeks, or are darker secrets lurking along the way?
