Lies and Letters in paperback and Uneasy Lies the Crown on sale

Hi All,
 
Quick news before I rush off to tackle my never-ending to-do list. (A word of advice: Never remodel a kitchen and try to train for a marathon while writing a novel. The number of hours in a day are finite.)
 
Lies and Letters is out now. I LOVE doing this series because it allows me to create some really fun characters in a humorous way. More Sam and Bump adventures are planned for the future.
 
Meanwhile, I've begun the next Faderville Novel, Say Something. I'm not entirely sure how it's going to unfold yet, but there's a runaway teenager named Beam, an older guy making a trek across America named Buzz, and of course his Australian Shepherd, Hush, who happens to be a seizure alert dog.
 
Lastly, if you're a fan of my historical fiction, my story about the 15th century Welsh prince, Owain Glyndwr, is on sale on Kindle for a limited time. Info. about Lies and Letters and Uneasy Lies the Crown is below.
 
 
 
Lies and Letters (A Sam McNamee Mystery) is now available on Amazon for Kindle and in paperback.

 
There’s a drug lord corrupting the youth of sleepy Wilton, Indiana — and he’ll get rid of anyone who stands in his way, including an innocent witness. Even a drug-sniffing dog.

When Sam McNamee decided to chuck her dreams of living in the Florida Keys and instead settled in rural Indiana to raise her daughter and look after her aging father, she didn’t expect to be caught up in the middle of a drug ring investigation. But someone has it out for her. Or to be more precise, her dog, Bump. And they’ll stop at nothing to run her out of town — including framing her daughter.

All Sam wants is to give her relationship with veterinarian Clint Chastain a chance. But matters get complicated when Clint’s ex — sexy humanitarian Dr. Danielle Townsley — invades Sam’s territory. Clint keeps reassuring Sam that she’s the one he wants, but his actions leave room for doubt. Meanwhile, firefighter Archer Malone is the one constant in Sam’s roller coaster life. And he’s looking better all the time.

Then, Bump disappears — and the one person who could help her find him is the same one she’s trying to avoid. 

 
From now until January 8th, you can get Uneasy Lies the Crown, A Novel of Owain Glyndwr, for just 99 cents on Kindle. It also comes as an audiobook!

What to Read Next - Romance - May, 2015

As promised, more books for your To Be Read pile! This is a selection of Romance titles.

Wife Number Seven (The Compound Series Book 1)by Melissa Brown

Contemporary / New Adult Romance

I know! A New Adult Romance set in a polygamist society? Yes, indeed. That's a new twist, huh? But I totally bought into it.

Brinley is wed to a much older man, for whom she feels no love. Unexpectedly, she develops a connection to an outcast named Porter. Her journey is believable and it's easy to feel sympathy for the situation Brinley is stuck in and to understand her need to break free.




Love Me Sweet (A Bell Harbor Novel)by Tracy Brogan

Contemporary Romance

If you like Romance that's more of the sweet variety and involves women who are long part college-age, Brogan's Bell Harbor series is great. I thought Love Me Sweet was the best installment of the series so far. It's a smidge steamier than the first two, but not so much you'll be blushing if you're reading it in public. It'll also make you laugh at times.

"When bad weather, missing money, honky-tonk musicians, and Elvis impersonators throw Grant and Delaney together on an unexpected road trip, emotions get all shook up. They know only fools fall in love, but they can’t help falling. Still, Delaney has a secret that could tear them apart forever."

Seven Days of Friday (Women of Greece Book 1)by Alex King

Contemporary Romance / Greece

Looking for a sweet contemporary that will take you to new places? Here it is. King writes about Greece with powerful descriptions that will make you feel like you are there. Best part -- it's FREE!

"Thirty-four-year-old Vivi Tyler is living her nightmare: gay husband, self-harming teenager, melodramatic mother. They’re picking apart her sanity, one stitch at a time. She’s crawling along rock bottom when the arrival of a mysterious package opens a new door to a new country. A desperate Vivi dives headfirst into the quicksand that is Greece—her parents’ birthplace." 


 At Any Price (Gaming The System Book 1)by Brenna Aubrey

Contemporary / New Adult Romance

This may be my most favorite New Adult yet. As New Adult usually is, it's a steamy read, but what I really liked about this is the intelligence of the writing. This is another FREEBY, so give it a try.

"When Mia Strong, popular gaming blogger, auctions off her virginity online, she knows she'll make waves. But what she will not be making is a love connection. Her rules are set in stone: One night. No further contact.

It's a desperate step, but it's the only way she can go to medical school and pay her mother's mounting hospital bills."


Entrepreneur Adam Drake, the auction winner, has found the loopholes in the rules of the auction...

Happy reading,
Gemi

What to Read Next - May, 2015

I know! It's been way too long since I've done one of these posts. Since I've stepped up my writing output, though, I've been blogging less. In an attempt to make up for being a slacker, here are some fantastic books I've discovered this year. As always, a variety of genres, to please any literary palette.

Hello Love by Karen McQuestion

General/Women's Fiction

Looking for a heartwarming feel-good love story with a dog in it? This is it! McQuestion always delivers a story that anchors itself deep in your heart, touching upon topics that everyone can relate to. This one is about love lost and love found and how, when we open our hearts, anything is possible.

Andrea becomes an accidental first-time dog owner. Dan, recently widowed, has just lost his dog. What they don't know when they first cross paths is that it is the same dog.




Departureby A.G. Riddle

SciFi / Time Travel / Technothrillers

If you like fast-paced SciFi, grab this one fast! It's recently been picked up by Harper Collins and the price will increase soon. AND the movie rights have been bought by 20th Century Fox.

If that's not enough of a selling point, here are a few lines from the blurb:

"Flight 305 took off in 2014...
But it crashed in a world very different from our own...

With time running out, five strangers must unravel why they were taken...
And how to get home.
"

The Language of Hoofbeats by Catherine Ryan Hyde

Literary / Contemporary Fiction

If you read my What to Read Next posts at all, you'll know I'm a Hyde fan. This is her best book yet. Alternating view points between the curmudgeonly Clementine and her new neighbor Jackie, it centers around the fallout that occurs when Star steals Clementine's horse. As always, Hyde delivers complex characters in an easy-to-read manner and brings them full circle.

"New to a small town, Jackie and Paula envision a quiet life for their kids: a young adopted son and two teenage foster children, including the troubled Star. However, they quickly butt heads with their neighbor, Clementine, who disapproves of their lifestyle and is incensed when Star befriends her spirited horse, Comet... When Star disappears with Comet, the neighbors are thrown together—far too close together."


The Banks of Certain Riversby Jon Harrison

Contemporary / Family Life Fiction

As a runner and frequent visitor to Michigan, I found this book very enjoyable -- rich in description and sometimes heartrending.

Neil is a teacher and cross country coach raising his teenage son alone. Years prior, his wife suffered a debilitating brain injury that now requires full-time care in a nursing facility. Neil ends up falling in love with his mother-in-law's caregiver, but struggles with letting his son know about it. Meanwhile, he breaks up a fight on school grounds, but video surfaces that makes it look like he physically assaulted one of the students.

Just when you think Neil is going to survive the circumstances, something else happens to worsen his ordeal. Hang in there, though. This is definitely worth reading to its conclusion.

The Highly Sensitive Person (Urban Books)by Elaine Aron

Non-Fiction / Self-Help

This is one I'll be recommending for years. If you've ever had someone tell you you're being 'too sensitive' or know someone who is deeply emotional or creative, this self-help book will put it all in perspective. Aron explains that Highly Sensitive People aren't riddled with a fault, but actually possess a desirable trait which contributes to the empathy and ingenuity of society.

"Do you have a keen imagination and vivid dreams? Is time alone each day as essential to you as food and water? Are you "too shy" or "too sensitive" according to others? Do noise and confusion quickly overwhelm you? If your answers are yes, you may be a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP)." 

Next installment -- Romance!

Happy reading,
Gemi
