Review of The Bentleys Buy a Buick by Pamela Morsi

The Bentleys Buy a Buick
Pamela Morsi
400 page
ISBN 13: 9780778329855

Tom Bentley has loved vintage cars since he was a boy, and in spite of his upbringing or lack of it he’s turned into a respectable husband, father and business owner and there’s nothing more important to him than his family especially knowing what it’s like not to have one. He’s now found a new love, a 56 Buick Roadmaster with a Continental Kit, and he’s determined to do right by her and her owner to find just the right home for her. 
Erica Bentley is a good mother and a good wife in spite of her upbringing with a mother who changed husbands like underwear and never trusted a man further than she could throw him, she’d do anything for the sake of her family. Recently returned to the workplace Erica is bombarded by constant gossip which makes her question things going on recently in her own life. Tom is being secretive and there’s talk about a new love in his life, can she compete with this “Clara”, will she make the ultimate sacrifice to keep her marriage and family together or will she take a page out of her mother’s book and ditch him.
This novel is like comfort food, it gives you that warm and fuzzy feeling, it combines a contemporary romance with a family drama and has a great moral message as well and that makes it especially nice to read in our too often throw away society. It’s a tale that every married couple has gone through and some didn’t survive, the emotions really come through on this one. The characters are engaging and enjoyably charismatic and the hero and heroine will steal the show as well as their son Quint and Gruffy too and Clara, well you’ll just have to find out about Clara by reading the story. The love scenes are very sensual without being overly explicit.
You Must Read this novel if 1) you love a good romance 2) you want that bright tingly feeling 3) you love enchanting characters or 4) all of the above.
This is my first read by Ms. Morsi, but it won’t be my last.

Review of Snapped by Laura Griffin

Laura Griffin
Pocket Star
432 pages
Publish Date 8-30-2011
ISBN 13: 9781451617368

Snapped is book four in the Tracers Series

Sophie Barrett’s decision to sign up for classes at the local University has a lot to do with her near death experience in her recent past, but as she crosses the campus she walks into a war zone as a gunman opens fire. As the case goes forward she disagrees with the direction the San Marco’s PD is taking and decides to do some investigating of her own. What she doesn’t know is that she’s just opened one huge can of worms and they just might eat her alive.
Jonah Macon has seen carnage in his life but nothing compares to the destruction of lives that this gunman did to this quiet college town. He’s also relieved that Sophie wasn’t one of the unlucky ones, but now she’s come up with this wild conspiracy theory while the higher ups in the department want this crime put to bed with the lone gunman scenario. But the more he digs the more she may be right, but that’s also putting her right in the line of fire. Now he just needs to keep her safe and that means keeping his hands off her if he can.

In 1966 Laura Griffin’s mother was in Austin the day that Charles Whitman took the lives of seventeen people at the U of T, she heard the stories growing up from her mom and when they visited the campus she was shown bullet holes and where her mom was when it happened. And so the inspiration for her new novel in her Tracers series was born. In it you will find gripping detail and edge of your seat terror mixed with a perfect birth and nurturing of a romance. Her detailed and vividly described narrative will keep her readers turning pages to find out what happens next while her enigmatic characters will keep them entertained and informed. Her hero and heroine, if you have read the series will not be unknown to you, but here in their own story you’ll see them in a different light a more personal and detailed look into who they are. Her romance is wrought with possibilities but the odds are against this couple. Will they make it you’ll have to find that out for yourself. The love scenes are visceral and very descriptive and realistic to the effect the events have on our duo.
If you’re looking for that one great read to end your summer, look no farther. If you want a knock your socks off romance, here it is. If you want a roller coaster ride of a crime drama, pick this one up.
Thank you Ms. Griffin for sharing with us a very personal trip down your memory lane and by in turn giving us one heck of a MUST READ.
I can’t wait for the next in this exciting series.

Interview with Deborah Cooke

In September I'm excited to announce that B&N.com Fiction General Discussion will feature
 the first in Deborah Cooke's wonderful series about the PYR, a dragon shape shifting species dedicated to protecting the earth and her wonders, including the humans who share it with them.
It's fantasy, it's romance, it's suspense and it's adventure. Please join us and have fun and meet and chat with the incredible author of the series.

Here's the interview with Deborah Cooke

It is my great pleasure to introduce to the General Fiction one of my all time favorite authors and a good friend Deborah Cooke.
Deborah started her writing career in 1992 with the sale of Romance of the Rose written under her pseudonym Claire Delecroix where she’s published many medieval romances often with just a touch of fantasy, she also has an urban fantasy romance series written as Claire Delacroix it’s a post apocalyptic trilogy starring Fallen Angels and it’s dynamite. She is also published under another pseudonym Claire Cross writing contemporary and time travel, some of which are available as re-released e-books. Her Dragon Shape Shifter series which we’re reading the first Kiss of Fire debuted in February of 2008 and the fire just keeps getting hotter. Deborah is the author who not only introduced me to but made me fall in love with the genre of paranormal and paranormal romance mostly because of the way she entranced me with her historical romances.
So with no further ado let’s get this interview going.

DH - Deb first of all thank you so much for being with us this month on the General Fiction board, I’m excited to introduce the members to you and this novel.

DC - Well, thanks for inviting me, Deb! I’m really looking forward to this month.

DH -You started out writing historical romance and yes some of them had a touch of woo woo in them but what made you decide to write a series starring dragon shape shifters.

DC -I’m not sure whether authors really decide to write series, or whether books decide to be written and choose a writer to the do the dirty work. I’ve always loved dragons and actually proposed medieval romances with dragon shifter heroes a number of times earlier in my career. The paranormal romance market was virtually non-existent then, so my editors either thought a/ the idea was weird; or b/ the idea wasn’t marketable; or c/ both. (I suspect most of them would have gone with c.) In 2005 when I wanted to do something different, I saw that paranormal romance was really popular. There seemed to be plenty of vampires in the sub-genre already, so it seemed to me that it might be time for something different. Several editors still went for a, b or c, but there were two editors who loved the idea. One bought it for publication, and I’ve been writing dragon shape shifter heroes ever since. It’s a lot of fun, especially choreographing the dragon fights.

DH -During the time you were writing the dragon books you also published your Fallen trilogy, tell us where the idea came for that.

DC -No. I’ve no idea where the idea came from. Lilia invaded my imagination (see? There’s a character who wanted her story written.) and was so interesting that I had to write her story to find out what it was. I knew she was going into a restricted area in a post-nuclear setting, breaking the law without concern. I knew that her husband had died accidentally, but she believed he’d been murdered. And she said that setting the record straight was the least that she owed him. What kind of marriage had they had? Lilia had my attention right from the start, and she did take me on a wild ride. The editor who acquired FALLEN loved the book so much that she wanted it to be part of a trilogy, so I worked out a way to do that. They were challenging books to write because of the worldbuilding and the pacing - more typical of thrillers than romances - but I had a great time writing that series. And the covers are gorgeous, too!

DH -I see many of your older romances have been re-released in digital format, tell us how did that come about and why change the covers.

DC -A publishing contract is a temporary assignment of the rights inherent in copyright - like that of reproducing and selling the work - from the author to the publisher. There’s always a clause in the contract which specifies how and when those rights will revert to the author. Generally that happens when the work isn’t being kept in print or actively being sold, which happens with older titles. In the last ten years, a lot of backlist rights have reverted to authors, and that’s been true for me, too. I’ve been re-releasing a lot of those titles myself, because I hear from readers all the time who are looking for specific titles. I tend to write books in linked trilogies and I know how irritating it is to only be able to find one of the books. So, this technology is a great way to make works available easily to readers.

The contract with the cover artist is entirely separate, so those rights never belong to the author. The book needs to have a new cover in order to go out into the world again. This is kind of fun as it’s an opportunity to try something different.
Of course, there are works that have not reverted, and now that many publishers are launching digital programs of their own, I doubt that we’ll see the same number of reverting titles as has been the case. My Bride Quest titles, at least the first three, are still available in print and digital, and Harlequin has started to re-release some of my historicals to which they still hold the rights. You’ll be able to recognize the digital books generated by publishers, because the cover art will be the same as the print edition since the house owns those rights, too.

DH -Now tell us a little about your other passion, knitting, how did that come about
(If you check out Deborah’s Blog here you will see some of her creations which are fabulous.)

DC -I learned to knit when I was four. My hands were too small to hold the needles in any correct way, so we figured out a way for me to grip them and get on with it. I still knit slowly because I can’t unlearn that grip! Knitting has been a hobby that I’ve returned to repeatedly, because I just like it. I like the rhythm of it and the results from it. It also is very helpful for my writing - I don’t entirely understand it, but I solve plot problems when I knit. Ideas just pop into my head, and that is a magical thing (as well as a good reason to keep knitting.)

DH -I see you have a FaceBook page here, do you like the idea behind social media for getting the word out there about your writing.

DC -I have a second FB page, too, Deb, for my alter ego - it’s right here:
Social media are interesting and there are certainly some people who use them very effectively as marketing tools. I’m not sure I’m organized enough for that, but I do like the interaction with readers and fans. And Facebook has been a great way to connect with reviewers and reader sites, too. I have fun with it, but have to be careful to not spend hours and hours playing around instead of writing.

DH -Now let’s talk about your brand new YA series starting with Flying Blind, where did the idea come for a YA series and was it difficult writing YA after so many years of writing adult romance.

DC -FLYING BLIND is the first book of a trilogy called The Dragon Diaries, which developed organically out of my Dragonfire paranormal romance series. In the Dragonfire world, the dragon shape shifters are all guys, except that there’s one female dragon shifter at any given time. She’s called the Wyvern and has special - extra - powers. She’s also kind of a mystery to the other dragon shifters, not just because of her gender but also because she’s reclusive. So, in book #3 of Dragonfire - which was KISS OF FATE - the Wyvern died. And the child conceived in that book was a girl, who was named Zoë. The assumption was that she would be the new Wyvern - the question was when. The male shifters come into their powers at puberty, which made me think that Zoë’s coming of age story would make a great paranormal YA trilogy.
Once again, you can see that the story chose me, not the other way around!
Writing any book is a challenge and an adventure, and always entails learning something new about your process or your craft. Writing this series was no different in that regard. What was different about it from my romances was the arc of the story. A romance is the story of two people falling in love and deciding to be together for the duration. It begins as close to when they meet as possible, and ends after they make their commitment to each other. Ideally, both protagonists will have a character arc and their attainment of the HEA is possible because they have each nudged the other to move forward along that character arc. Ideally, we as readers see them become a team. The YA series, in contrast, is Zoë’s coming of age story. The arc of the story lies purely in Zoë’s character development and her journey from being a kid with aspirations to being the Wyvern. There are romantic elements, but they are subordinate to Zoë’s own character arc. So, you could think of it as flipping the balance around. I found these books more similar in structure to the four Coxwell books I wrote as Claire Cross - those were contemporary romances but some people labelled them as women’s fiction books because of the strong focus in each book on the heroine’s emotional journey.

DH -Do you see yourself continuing with the pseudonyms or will you be writing strictly under your own name from now on.

DC -There’s a question! You never really know. Sometimes authors choose pseudonyms and other times, publishers suggest that one might be a good idea. Sometimes author brands continue for the duration and sometimes they don’t. I really like writing the dragon books and hope to keep doing so. On the other hand, Claire is remarkably tenacious - I don’t see myself losing her anytime soon. And there are so many stories I want to write. Writing the stories and getting them published is really my focus.

You are a very busy woman, what do you like to do for fun
Besides writing and knitting?! My husband and I like to buy old houses and renovate them. Our current house is the oldest yet and the biggest adventure - she might finish us! - but it is interesting to figure out how the house was originally, how it was changed, why it might have been changed, then decide what would be the most sensitive yet practical way to have it be from this point forward. Yes, I actually enjoy stripping paint and revealing all the previous layers and colours - which is a good thing, because there’s lots of that to be done around here.

DH -Tell us something about yourself that might surprise us.

DC -This is such a good question. I’m so tempted to lie and tell you something amazing. But probably the most surprising thing for most readers is that authors don’t live enormously glamorous lives. I meet people all the time who expect me to swan around in a negligee, carrying a small pink dog, ordering champagne for breakfast every day. In fact, I live much like all of you - with dishes and laundry and family and friends - except that I make stuff up for a living.
Which is surprising in its own way, don’t you think?

DH -Deb thank you so much for allowing me to interview you and especially in advance for participating in our forum.

Review of Good Girls Don't by Victoria Dahl

Good Girls Don’t
Victoria Dahl
Publish Date August 30, 2011
ISBN 13: 9780373775958
Good Girls Don’t is book one in the Just One Taste Donavan Brewery series.
Tessa Donavan is and will always be the “little sister” to her two brothers. With the tragic death of their parents Eric, Tessa and Jamie became life support to each other and joint owners of their father’s brewery. Now as adults that little sister stigma still exists and when Tessa wants to date an old college buddy of Jamie’s the microbrew will hit the fan. But there’s more going on in this family than Tessa’s dating habits, there’s an underlying lack of continuity that the siblings must find to seal some old wounds.
Luke Asher became a cop because of his ingrained sense of wanting to help, it took him first to LA but after a close call injury and a nasty divorce he comes back to Boulder for some kinder gentler police work and walks right into a robbery case involving the Donavan’s Brewery, he can smell a rat, he just doesn’t know where. Then there’s Tessa, beautiful, vivacious, sexy as heck Tessa and even warned off by her brother can’t keep him away. But will this feeling last, or will he be brokenhearted once again, can he take the chance or is it too risky.
The first thing I have to say about this novel is WOW, not only is it hilarious, it’s emotional, it’s filled with can’t forget characters and then there’s the love scenes, the only word for them is “SMOKIN”.
Ms. Dahl gives us a story that anyone with siblings can relate to and believe me the family dynamic is dynamite, she does this with her in your face hip dialogue that fans of all ages will get, now if you’re opposed to four letter words and explicit scenes of lovemaking, pass this one by, but if you’re like me and really enjoy a “real life” experience in your romance you will love this one. Now let’s talk about the characters, the Donavan family trio is so endearing and it’s heartbreaking too, to watch these siblings who would do anything for each other, not be able to figure out how. And then there’s Luke, who’s every girls dream come true with a bad reputation to boot, why the bad rep, sorry that you’ll have to read for yourself.
And watching the romance develop is like watching an almost trainwreck. Now my suggestion for reading the love scenes would be in a walk in cooler, but if that’s not possible just make sure you’re under an air conditioning vent. All in all it’s the last blast of summer must read, it’s got it all, action, romance, mystery and family drama, plus those afore mentioned love scenes.
Make this your next must read, you won’t be sorry. Be sure to look for “Bad Boys Do” Jamie’s story in October and “Real Men Will” Eric’s in November.
Thank you Ms. Dahl for one incredible tale.

Review of The Madonnas of Leningrad by Debra Dean

The Madonnas of Leningrad
Debra Dean
Harper Collins
256 pages
ISBN 13:9780060825317

Marina doesn’t recognize her daughter but can picture clearly the residents of the Hermitage museum during 1941 as Hitler marched on Russia, she can’t comprehend that the woman standing before her is her granddaughter and yet she can see the faces of her cousins as they board the busses leaving Leningrad, can still feel the anguish of their mother and the resolve of their father, she sees before her a spread of food and thinks it’s a dream because she remembers like yesterday the starvation of a whole city during one terrible winter.
Set in modern day Seattle Ms. Dean takes us into the cloudy web of the mind of a woman who’s lived through mindless tragedy, unspeakable degradation and survived to tell the tale only to be ravaged by another foe that will make her forget, but she doesn’t stop there she takes us into the heart of this family and how they cope with a mother who’s not all there anymore and a father who won’t let her go. She does this by spending a chapter in the present and one in the past to show us the continuity of her story and then to show us further the effect on the victim some of the chapters meld together in one confusing episode. Her narrative is haunting, it’s raw, it’s terrifying and it’s beautiful, it’s love in the first degree between Dimitri and Marina and she captures that feeling no better than on page 119 where Dimitri says  of Marina “She was his country and he hers. They were inseparable”. Her descriptions of war torn Leningrad and her dying people is horrifyingly realistic and yet she also brings forth the utter stubbornness of this people who refuse to give up as they go through they’re daily routines even as they slowly die.
It’s a love story, it’s a tragedy, it’s a story of life and the end of it. It’s a tale of literary fiction that you will find yourself coming back to time and time again.
It’s important to not forget that there are works out there that are not hot off the presses that need to be discovered or in my case rediscovered, like this one.

Review of Trust-book one of the Bannon Brothers trilogy by Janet Dailey

Trust Book One of the Bannon Brothers
Janet Dailey
Kensington Publishing
352 pages
ISBN 13:9780758255761

RJ Bannon needs something to do while he’s on the last leg of his two year rehab from a drug bust gone bad, why not the 25 year old cold case of the disappearance of Ann Montgomery age 3 daughter of wealthy Hugh Montgomery. What RJ doesn’t know is that by reopening this case he’s stepped in the middle of a hornets nest and someone’s bound to get stung, will it be him, artist Erin Randall that he’s taken a shine to, sheriff Hoebel who wants him out or Hugh Montgomery himself. RJ Bannon’s about to find out it’s not who you know it’s who you “Trust” that counts.
Janet Dailey brings us a contemporary romance with a good dose of suspense and mystery inside with a plot that belongs on CNN because who wouldn’t be interested in the very cold case of a missing heiress. She brings us this with an everyday easy to read dialogue that makes the reading go very smoothly. She give us characters that run the gamut from larger than life horse breeder millionaires to low life ex-cop/cons to your girl next door. Her characters are all defined very well and she makes sure we know as much about them as we need to so that by the end of the read we know why and how things happened. Her hero RJ Bannon is the wounded hero but will defend his heroine even through his pain, the heroine is a frail and demure woman who has claws when needed. The romance is predicable but that’s the beauty of it, it’s simplicity, the love scenes are rated a G so no romance reader will be offended but those of us who love hot scenes know exactly what goes on behind closed doors.
Ms. Dailey brings us the first in her new Bannon Brothers trilogy with a bang up mystery that’s fast paced and full of good guys vs bad guys and she makes sure the good guys come out on top.

Review of Touch of Frost by Jennifer Estep

Touch of Frost
Jennifer Estep
Kensington Teen
350 pages
ISBN 13: 978075826692

Gwen Frost has had a lot to contend with in her young life, her mom dying tops that list, but what she didn’t expect was what happened after that when her Grandma decided she need to attend Mythos Academy, a place where Gwen is an automatic outcast a place that’s as mysterious as the students who attend here and the real reason she’s here too. Mythos Academy is nothing like any high school we’ve ever seen, it’s sort of a prep school for how to be a Titan, that’s right the students are living breathing descendants of Amazons, Vikings, Spartans and Valkries among other myth busting species, and they’re here to learn how to be warriors to stop another Chaos war by keeping Loki in his magical prison and his minions at bay. But what does this mean for Gwen, well she’s about to find out as she tries to solve a murder at the school and gets pulled deeper into the reality that things are not always as they seem and sometimes all it takes is a “Touch of Frost”.

Jennifer Estep is no stranger to me as I love her adult urban fantasy Elemental Assassin series. This series takes place in close proximity to that one and she even mentions the prolific Pork Pit from that series in this one, but that’s where the similarity ends because she floats from adult to YA with the ease of a surfer catching the perfect wave. Her story line is just as incredible as the adult series filled with all mythological beings from our high school ancient history classes and yet she fills those pages with characters that pop off the page with their realism and their believability. Her narrative is very “high school”, well I think it is anyway, since I’m way over that limit, but it seems very hip and very young to these aging ears. Her heroine Gwen Frost is such a likable character, needy and yet brave at the same time. She shows us very different sides of Gwen which makes me all the more impressed with her. She fills the pages with fast paced action, danger and more myth come to life beings on both sides of the good vs evil fence.

If you like YA, this one will rate right up there with the best, if you’re a fan of urban fantasy, or paranormal adult or YA you’ll like this one. If you are just a lover of a great story told by an amazing storyteller, pick this one up.

Review of Inside by Brenda Novak

Brenda Novak
440 pages
ISBN 13: 9780778329930

Vrigil Skinner spent 14 yrs in prison for a crime he didn’t commit, now thanks to the efforts of his sister he’s out but far from free because to survive “INSIDE” you need more than determination, you need friends but they come with a high price in prison, they come with a gang tag and Virgil entwined himself with one of the most notorious The Crew. Now that he’s out his ex-brothers think he’s going to turn on them so they want to get him and all those he loves before he gets them. The Feds want to get the lowdown on another gang so they send Virgil undercover to flush out the truth by infiltrating the gang, his reward he and his family will go into WITSEC, the witness protection program.
Deputy Warden Peyton Adams has a very personal reason for choosing her career path and she gives it her whole heart, so when she learns that the Feds want to put a plant inside she fears for his safety but ultimately agrees to using him. They only have a few days to prepare, but what they weren’t prepared for was the way they feel about each other and it’s more than just lust. Now Virgil has more incentive to stay alive and Peyton to keep him that way, but the odds are stacked against them in love and in living.

Brenda Novak is an awesome mom, a champion of causes and an award winning author and in this first of her Bulletproof trilogy with In Seconds coming in September and In Close coming in October you’ll see why.  Inside is a runaway train that won’t let you breath until it finally comes in for a smooth landing at the end of a treacherous trail. You get amazing good guys masquerading as bad guys, you get bad guys wearing white hats and pretty soon you don’t know who to trust, well trust your heart. Her dialogue keeps the frenzy going and your heart beating double time while the narrative shows you despicable crimes and heartwarming romance. The characters are incredibly true to life, depicted so accurately that you can see the gang tattoos, feel the sea breeze in your face and feel the heat in the presence of our hero and heroine.  The romance is doomed from the start, but that doesn’t stop these two from wanting what they know they shouldn’t, do they get it, for that you’ll have to read yourself. The love scenes are as explosive as it gets and yet you can feel the innocence in the Virgil character and the tenderness in Peyton towards him. It’s just a have to have it now read.

You can check out my review of In Seconds the second in the trilogy in the September issue of RT Reviews magazine.

Thank you Ms. Novak for a splendid journey
