Max and Joe team up to find Max's killer. In the process, they form an unlikely friendship and change each other's lives in ways they never expected.

Read an excerpt:

Chapter 1

Divorce. She slid the word across the table like it was part of his breakfast. Here’s your toast and coffee and I want a divorce.

Max Paddington stared into his wife’s clear brown eyes and said the only thing that came to mind. “What?”

“I want a divorce,” Rachel repeated.

At least she’d left out the toast and coffee bit. Divorce hadn’t been a side order, after all. “Are you still mad about the golf clubs?” he asked. “I’ll take them back if it’s that big of a deal.”

“Max…”

Rachel said his name as if it left a sour taste on her tongue. Max swiped a hand through his damp hair. He’d been awake less than a half hour and already his day had turned to shit. Rachel, his wife of fourteen years—no, it was fifteen now—stood in front of him with her arms folded over her breasts. She wore a black camisole, pantyhose, and three-inch heels. And he was supposed to take her seriously?

“Rach,” he said. “You want to get divorced over golf clubs?”

“It’s not the golf clubs, Max.”

“Well, what the hell?”

“I need to finish getting dressed or I’ll be late for work.”

“So be late! You can’t tell me you want a divorce, like you’re telling me the weather for the day, then walk out the door.”

“I can’t be late today.”

“Or what? The world will implode because you don’t serve your boss’s coffee on time?”

Rachel glared. “I do not serve my boss coffee. I only did that for you and I won’t be doing it anymore.”

“I’m sorry, okay?” Max pushed his coffee mug aside, the object having suddenly become an obstacle between them. “I didn’t mean that. It’s just that you dumped this bombshell on me and you won’t even talk to me about it.”

“I don’t understand why you’re so surprised.”

“What? I should have been expecting a divorce with my breakfast?”

“Think about it, Max.”

With that, she turned and strode from the room. He watched her ass, naked beneath the pantyhose. Divorce. What the hell?

~ ~ ~

Max took his miserable attitude to work at the local Publix, where he’d been assistant manager for nearly five years. Before that, he’d been the assistant manager at Winn-Dixie. Always the assistant. Never the boss. And now his wife wanted a divorce because he’d bought expensive golf clubs. How had he managed to earn such a low rank in life?

He took his misery out on the new stock boy, a skinny sixteen-year-old with pockmarked skin and the grace of a five-thousand-pound elephant. The kid was close to tears by the time Dan, the manager, caught wind of the bad karma in the air. Max muttered an apology to his boss, said he was having a bad day, and wandered out to the stockroom. While sorting through overstock, he knocked an open case of olives onto the floor. The green ones in the glass jars. Four of the jars shattered. Little green eyeballs rolled in a puddle around his feet. One of the stockers helped him clean the mess with only a minimal of razzing.

Max hid his embarrassment behind a gruff attitude, then ducked into his office. He poured himself a cup of coffee and promptly spilled some on his tie. Next, he slipped on a newly waxed section of floor and did a fancy skid that landed him on his ass in the middle of the aisle. After that, he gave up on even pretending to work and managed to steer clear of everyone until quitting time.

He cursed his Honda Civic for not being a Mercedes, then cursed the traffic for getting in his way. His house mocked him with its dark silence. The coffeemaker mocked him from its place on the counter. Would you like a divorce with your morning coffee? A sweep of his arm sent the machine and its glass carafe sailing across the room. Leftover coffee exploded with the glass.

Was Rachel even coming home? Max watched the coffee form a river between the floor tiles. He cursed at the mess on the floor and the mess that was his life. Think about it, she’d told him. As if he could think about anything else!

He grabbed his keys and slammed out the door. Stupid to sit around sulking on the off chance that Rachel would come home soon. She was probably humping her boss on his fancy desk in his cavernous office. Damn lawyers. If the guy wasn’t overweight and bald, that thought would bother him a lot more.

Max brought his attitude to Chili’s, where he ate a burger and drank two large Cokes. Rather than one of the cute waitresses, he got stuck with a twenty-something waiter with a hundred-watt smile and perfect hair. The kind of guy who got threesomes on a regular basis. The kid’s name was Carlos and Max hated him on sight.

The noise level in the place had Max chewing on the edge of his glass. An entire building full of couples and families, all talking to each other, smiling and happy. He sat alone, being waited on by the pinup boy for Playgirl, looking like the true loser he’d become.

Would you like a divorce with your order?

Max left Carlos what was likely the worst tip the kid had ever received and stomped back out to his car. He’d been forced to park in the bank’s lot next door. That should have been a sign for him to stay out of the place. The food, liquor, noise and Carlos’s perfect white teeth only managed to further sour his mood.

Maybe Rachel would be home by now and be willing to talk. As he yanked his door open, it occurred to him that he should have gotten her some food. What if she hadn’t been avoiding him and had only worked late? What if she was waiting for him now, in their kitchen with the glass and the coffee river?

He spotted someone standing in the shadows, twenty feet from his car. A thin man, maybe a woman. Couldn’t tell with that stupid ball cap pulled low, half hidden behind the palm trees where no lights fell. Why the hell was the guy standing there in the dark? That was the thought Max had when the bullet ripped through his left eye, tore through his brain, and exploded out the back of his skull.

MY THOUGHTS -
OK so I am now officially a Darcia Helle fan! And this is only my second book. I absolutely can't wait to read more. This book was so much fun to read!

First off, I love ghost stories! And holy cow, this was one of the best and definitely the most fun! One minute I was crying and the next I was laughing so hard I had tears streaming down my face so I couldn't see to read. At one part I was laughing out loud for a solid 10 min, my husband was so annoyed he threatened to leave the room because I was bothering him! He is such a Kiljoy! But, I did tell him that if I can find this in audio (Darcia - is it in audio?) I was going to get it for him.

Max started out as a real jerk and I couldn't stand him. Really there was no liking him at all. Then... well he became a ghost! And, he actually became more "human" emotionally anyway. And he was freaking hilarious! So, I hate to say it but I did fall in love with him!

What a great fun read! If you are a fan of ghost stories, the fun kind not the dark scary kind - you will LOVE this!

I also read "The Cutting Edge" by Darcia and loved that one as well. I haven't done a review for it yet, but I will. I just love her style of writing. It is snarky, quirky, and so much fun, but her books are also very suspenseful! So a great combo!

Midnight in a Perfect World - Ambrose Ibsen


5 STARS!!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
A mysterious suicide. Horrific specters walking the streets. A drug that promises to change the world. An apocalyptic cult.

Something is stirring in the city of Duluth, Minnesota. Ever since a celebrated researcher announced the creation of a new experimental drug—a drug with the potential to cure the mind of countless ills—people have been disappearing. When a grad student involved with the drug's development unexpectedly commits suicide, a private detective is tasked with unearthing the details of her tumultuous final days.

This miracle drug may not be what it seems. Others touched by the drug begin to see things—horrible things—and find themselves transported into a nightmarish world where an ancient evil stirs.

Those who taste the drug are left spiraling into horror. Dark figures tail them on the street, and the scenery of their nightmares begins to encroach upon waking life, blurring the lines between dreams and reality. Their terrifying experiences make up the individual fragments of a dire mosaic. As the pieces fall into place, they come to realize the unspeakable horrors that await all of mankind.

Midnight is looming, and the sun may never rise again over the city of Duluth.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR -
Once upon a time, a young Ambrose Ibsen discovered a collection of ghost stories on his father's bookshelf. He was never the same again.

Apart from horror fiction, he enjoys good coffee, brewed strong.

MY THOUGHTS -
OH MY GOSH this book was so good! I have read 3 or 4 of his books and this certainly is the best so far! You can probably judge a book by how long it takes you to read it. I read this in two days and the whole last half in one sitting. This is the kind of book that you don't want to read after dark, but just can't help yourself - you can't stop reading! I was actually sitting in bed around midnight finishing it.

I love scary stories! I'm a horror fan from way back when I was a teen when all I watched was horror movies. This is seriously one of the best. It starts right off and just never quits. The whole mind altering drug idea is fantastic! 

If you are into scary/horror books at all and want something with a more modern twist - the is definitely one you will want to try! This will probably be one of my favorite books of the year.

I think Netflix should do an "original movie" with this one - it would for sure go viral LOL!

The Liberation of Lauren Lane - Angela Pisaturo


5 STARS!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
A thought-provoking saga of a young girl's climb out of shame and onto glory. A vivid account of date rape and campus dangers. Lauren was not your typical college girl. She was shy, not the party type at all. But she needed a friend and Sarah impressed her as a true friend. Little did she know, Sarah WAS NOT what she appeared to be. At Sarah's prompting, Lauren attends her Christmas gathering, but its a setup, and the unspeakable happens to Lauren. This begins Lauren's spiral downward, until grace alone sets her free.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR -
Ms. Pisaturo studied the art of novel writing at the Jerry Jenkin's Writer's Guild and graduated at the journeymen level. Ms. Pisaturo's published articles are Unconditional Love in a Pet, published by Pet Supermarkets and The Dollhouse Angel published by Faithwriters Magazine.  A Gift for Abigail and True Friends Are Forever, two children's books for young girls.  She currently writes an inspirational column for pet lovers entitled Paws for Thought which is featured on a regular basis in the EastLakeBlister.com newspaper, a local community paper for the discerning reader.

 She has coordinated a writers group known as Joyful Word.  Under her direction, the group published a newsletter that was distributed to Tampa Bay area nursing homes, hospitals, churches and libraries.  

MY THOUGHTS -
A refreshing change. This was a slightly different take on rape/date rape. A deep story of hurt, guilt, shame, forgiveness and acceptance.

Great character development. There were some very tense scary moments in the book. They were all very believable. I loved Lauren and WOW did I feel for her! She did a total spiral downward after something that wasn't even her fault. And yet - she felt the shame and guilt. I loved the direction this took - I loved that she had to hit rock bottom (and she really did) before slowly climbing back out again.  And I loved that Lauren went back to what she had always wanted to do, that she didn't loose that vision. She took what happened to her and used it in such a way so she could help other people in need.

Even with all the graphic scenes I think this is an important book for older teens to read. Not only to see what is out there and what can happen (so be careful!) but also to see what can happen after. That life does go on and it can get better.

Crash (The Obsolescence Trilogy, Book 1) By: Chris Muhlenfeld - Audio review


5 STARS!!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
And then it went dark…the world’s electrical grid was gone.

Who would survive the chaos?

For James and Alexa, they saw it unfold from their ranch, which was a blessing. They were away
from the chaos, and they thought they were safe. They thought wrong.

What will they do?

All across the country cities are in crisis.

Logan and his family look out from their Manhattan penthouse. The world is crumbling before their eyes. Unprepared, he’s got to do something. They can’t stay. But how can they leave and where will they go?

Someone has a solution.

It’s Logan’s domestic android.

Can he believe a machine? 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR -
Chris writes science fiction, and although he's tried several times to write non-sci-fi books and stories, somehow a wormhole always seems to open up and send it off to sci-fi land. While he's not writing, he enjoys reading, hiking, exploring, traveling, and sending long, rambling emails to the ten people on the planet who still use long-form written communication. You can write to him, and he'll write back to you. It'll be fun. For now, though, you should probably go read one of his books. Yes, you should definitely do that.

To learn more about Chris, his books, and his general (though not pathological) weirdness, check out his website at http://muhlenfeld.com


MY THOUGHTS -
Well this was just fantastic!!!
Is it weird that I love Post-Apocalyptic/end-of-the-world type books so much! Yeah it probably is.
I have read many book of this genre and this is one of the best! There is so much happening it keeps your full attention all the way through.

I love that there are different groups of characters that you follow throughout the story. Warning - do not get too attached to any of them... people do die in this book. This is not a fluff story. It is gritty, edgy, sad at times and a little scary. That being said - great characters and equally great development.

Although it was very intense and very futuristic/sci-fi-ish it is also very easy to follow. An excellent beginning to a series that I will definitely want to continue!

AUDIO -
The narration was absolutely outstanding and in this case, really made the story for me! Often I will love the story but not really care for the audio but I give both the story and audio 5 stars!

If you are a fan of  Post-Apocalyptic type books you will definitely want to give this one a try! I promise you will not be disappointed!

The Princess of Baker Street - Mia Kerick - GIVEAWAY!


The Princess of Baker Street
by Mia Kerick
Published by: Harmony Ink Press
Publication date: January 22nd 2019
Genres: Contemporary, LGBTQ+, Young Adult



 5 STARS!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
 “Always wear your imaginary crown” is Joey Kinkaid’s motto. For years, Joey, assigned male at birth, led the Baker Street kids in daring and imaginative fantasy adventures, but now that they’re teenagers, being a princess is no longer quite so cool. Especially for a child who is seen by the world as a boy.

Eric Sinclair has always been Joey’s best friend and admirer—Prince Eric to Joey’s Princess Ariel—but middle school puts major distance between them. As Eric’s own life takes a dangerous turn for the worse, he stands by and watches as Joey—who persists in dressing and acting too much like a Disney princess for anybody’s comfort—gets bullied. Eric doesn’t like turning his back on Joey, but he’s learned that the secret to teenage survival, especially with and absent mother, is to fly under the radar.

But when Joey finally accepts who she is and comes to school wearing lip gloss, leggings, and a silky pink scarf, the bullies make her life such a misery that she decides to end it all. Eric, in turn, must decide who he really is and what side he wants to stand on… though no matter what he chooses, the consequences with be profound for both teens, and they’ll face them for years to come.

Is there a chance the two teens can be friends again, and maybe even more?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR -
Mia Kerick is the mother of four exceptional children—one in law school, another a professional dancer, a third studying at Mia’s alma mater, Boston College, and her lone son, heading off to college. (Yes, the nest is finally empty.) She has published more than twenty books of LGBTQ romance when not editing National Honor Society essays, offering opinions on college and law school applications, helping to create dance bios, and reviewing scholarship essays. Her husband of twenty-five years has been told by many that he has the patience of Job, but don’t ask Mia about this, as it’s a sensitive subject.

Mia Kerick is a social liberal and cheers for each and every victory made in the name of human rights. Her only major regret: never having taken typing or computer class in school, destining her to a life consumed with two-fingered pecking and constant prayer to the Gods of Technology. Contact Mia at miakerick@gmail.com or visit at www.miakerickya.com to see what is going on in Mia’s world.

MY THOUGHTS -
What a fantastic story.  Heartwarming, sad, and brave! I have never read a Mia Kerick book before, but kudos to her for being such a brave edgy writer! This left me definitely wanting to read more.

A great group of characters! They were all very real. Joey, a girl trapped inside a boys body wanting desperately to be who she truly is. I think the author captured Joey's feelings and true self perfectly. The suffering under the hands of bullies was heartbreaking but again so real! Even the bullies characters were great (and by that, I mean they felt real). I loved Eric. He was my favorite character. People are always concerned with the main person involved. Few people ever think how it affects the family and friends. While Eric ignored Joey and sometimes even went along with the taunting for years, on the inside, he was conflicted. He was struggling with his feelings for Joey as a friend... or more. There was also Eric's shockingly sad poverty stricken home life! This part of the book was even more amazing to me that the other.

I love how everything came around in the end. Great ending! And I love that you get two stories in one!

A great heart breaking/heart lifting story by a great writer! A must read!

Read an excerpt:

Behind me, the door I’d entered through opened. A very tan redhead showing signs of aging from many days spent in the sun entered carrying a laptop bag and shouldering a camera. A red Carnegie Mellon University baseball cap that looked like it had been run over by a garbage truck covered part of her tough, but beautiful face. She looked me over like I was a mongrel who’d wandered in begging for table scraps.

“You need something?” She dropped her stuff down on the cushioned chair next to the counter.

“Uh, yes, I wondered if I could get some clippings or microfilm or copies or whatever it is newspapers give for issues two to eight years old. Are they digitized yet?” I stammered.

“Seriously, what do you want?” She pulled her Ray-Bans off and the gray-blue of her eyes stunned me for a moment. Using her sunglasses, she tapped my shoulder. “Hello?”

The faint odor of cigarette smoke assaulted me when she got close.

“Clippings, you know, news from the past,” I said.

As she slipped the glasses into a case from her purse she said, “Yes, but you implied that something here was digitized.” She pursed her thin lips. “This newspaper went online three years ago, so, the last three years are available online in the archives section if you buy a subscription. You a subscriber?”

“I don’t have a subscription,” I said defensively.

“Figures. This is why my job is constantly in danger. Everyone expects news for free.” Her fine hair moved in a blur as she shook her head derisively while she rummaged for something in her bag.

“Hey, I’m happy to buy a subscription. I support journalism,” I said. It sounded lame.

We both flinched as a thunderous banging rang through the room as something or someone hit the other side of a door to my left.

She threw her hands up, exclaiming, “Not again!”

“What? What’s that?” I said.

“Calling the cops,” she sang out. “They said they’re gonna start charging us if this happened again,” she whispered.

Another, more urgent banging erupted through the room. The reporter had her cell out.

“Wait,” I said. “Is it really that dangerous?”

“No, just annoying.” She pressed a button on her phone. “You believe this? Now I’m on hold. I could probably walk over to the police station faster. He’ll probably take a dump on the floor by the time we get back.”

MY THOUGHTS -
Well I just loved this book! This was exciting, different, fun, kinda quirky and with great characters! You definitely can't go wrong with this one!

I fell in love with Boise (and Dana) but especially the two of them together. I loved Boise's island laid back but git-er-done personality. I loved that the author didn't make him out to be some kind of superhero. He was a real person that had real crap happen to him. Dana had a much stronger outspoken personality so the two of them, I thought made a great team.

This was a little difficult and slow reading at times because of the authentic Caribbean, which I loved and wouldn't have wanted it any other way. It just made you have to concentrate harder.

There were two mysteries going on at the same time, so no drag in the story-line. Loved the ending. And loved that this was the first in, what I hope to be, a whole string of Boise books! Gimme more please!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR -
Jody Long was born in Portsmouth, UK, grew up in Waterlooville, Hampshire, and moved to Malaga, Spain in 2014. For over ten years he designed for all the major UK and US knitting magazines, then moved on to design for knitting mills around the globe. Jody has also designed for celebrity clients. His first book, "Knitted Toys" is only the beginning of his career as an author.


MY THOUGHTS -
My very first thought was - I love that there are more complicated patterns in this book! As an experienced knitter I get tired of looking at pattern books with nothing but simple "quick knits" that just bore the pants off me (so to speak). So when I saw all the lovely cabled sweaters in here I squealed with glee :-)

There are a lot of sweaters (and jackets) in this book, which is great! But I do wish there were a little more of the other items. There are a couple hats but not very good ones, a couple booties but nothing new, and a couple blankies but again...

But I do give this book credit for all the wonderful sweater patterns. I am going to try a couple of them right away!

Here are a couple pictures -

Doesn't this one look like so much fun????
And this one is a boring quick one but my daughter loves it... so I will probably end up making it for my granddaughter! LOL

This author actually has quite a few other books I would love to get my hands on!
