Anniversary Weekend

This weekend just gone was a hectic, but Wonderful, Fun Filled Time with Family and Friends. Because 50 years ago on March 28th 1964 This Happened.




Saturday looked like this:


The house was full of streamers, balloons, sparkly bits on the table - which Mum will be hoovering up for months no doubt. And approx 50 guests. It was FUN. And there was a time line of stuff that happened over the past 50 years as well.

And then four years ago yesterday I signed my first contract with Pelican Books. And never looked back. I don't write for anyone else, don't intend to write for anyone else.

That first book was this one - 

A Killer lurks in Headley Cross…

…And Holly Carmichael is the only woman to survive his attack. Now she lives in fear, searching for normalcy and trying to put her life back together. When she meets Kyle Stevens, he turns her world upside-down. He’s as exasperating as he is appealing. How can Holly make sense of her awakening feelings when she’s so unsure of Kyle? His voice is familiar, he’s left-handed, and he wears the serial killer’s cologne. Who is he…really? As Holly struggles to restore her damaged faith, she must find the strength to trust once again—in Kyle and in God.

Kyle Stevens isn’t ready to live again. Racked by guilt, he’s afraid to feel. His sole focus is finding the Headley Cross serial killer—his girlfriend's murderer. That is, until he meets Holly Carmichael. He’s drawn to Holly, vows to protect her where he failed to protect his former love. But Holly makes him feel again, emotions quickly morphing into something much more dangerous to his hardened heart.

When the serial killer returns to finish what he started, only a miracle can save them…but then, it's the Season for Miracles.

Review: Beautiful Imperfection by Kathryn J Bain


Review: Beautiful Imperfection by Kathryn J Bain

Blurb:
When witnesses to a mass murder start dying, breast cancer survivor Teddy Federline must push aside her anger and trust an ex-boyfriend to ensure she lives long enough to testify against the killer.

Detective Sloan Michaels still has deep feelings for Teddy but realizes that after the way he left her years ago, he has a lot of making up to do. Now, he must keep his focus on the case and off the woman he loves. If Sloan doesn't keep Teddy safe, he'll never get a second chance.

Review:
It’s not often I pick up a book I can’t put down. But this is one of those.
Teddy has been through the wringer before we meet her and she’s not going to get an easy ride here either. Tossed straight into a shooting, she’s determined not to let anything faze her. With the exception of the cop assigned to her case. The one man she could quite happily do without seeing ever again.  
Sloan struggles to keep his mind on the job. He has other reasons for wanting to keep Teddy alive and safe, but that becomes increasingly difficult to do as the witnesses to the shooting begin dying.

This story will keep the reader glued to the pages. Just when you think its safe to draw another breath, put the book down, something else happens. A rollercoaster of a ride, this book is a keeper.
