Sally’s Christmas Cupid (Katie L. Thompson)

Standard

Sally's Cupid

What a nice, holiday treat! Katie L. Thompson doesn’t disappoint! I just loved this short story about Sally, a newly divorced woman with a dog named Cupid. Her handsome neighbor, Jason, stops over to give her a package that was accidentally delivered to his home. There is a connection right away and I really felt Sally’s awkwardness at times, as well as her hopes and dreams. I know how she felt while waiting for Jason to pop over one more time. Little Cupid needing a walk makes it the perfect time to check out what’s going on next door! I love that this was just a pure, sweet, romantic story. I only wish it were longer! Pick this up for a quick holiday tale that warms the heart!

Noelle’s Wish by Nicole Garcia

I’m not into romance, normally, but I do like a romantic story around the holidays. What I liked about this one, was that the character of Noelle has a big backstory that we all learn before she jumps into bed with the handsome man who helps her get over her fears. I really enjoyed this short tale. We really get to know these characters. I liked Noelle from the start and felt her pain. I am so happy that I gave this story a try! The only thing I thought was lacking was the character of Eve. I was hoping to read more scenes with her, as she was a great asset to the story! I recently learned that Eve is going to have a story of her own titled Eve’s Gift! Holly’s Star is soon to follow from author Nicole Garcia. I wouldn’t call this full blown erotica, but more of a romantic story, complete with excellent character development that sets us up for that big scene! If you want a nice holiday treat, check out these romantic tales! Looking forward to the next two myself!

Holly's Star

Babble & Bite by Kat Nove

Standard

This is a nice break from novel reading and I was so happy that I had this to read during my lunch at work! The stories are different, so there’s wonderful variety here as different genres are explored. My personal favorites are A Suburban Halloween and The Coolest Pair of Sunglasses. Creating Fossils amused me as well as Capricorn, Meet Scorpio. I love short reads such as this! If you are a short story fan, pick this up!

Porcelain by William Hage

Standard

I love short, creepy novelettes such as this one! I am so glad I read this in the daytime! It would have found it’s way into my dreams at night, if I would have enjoyed this in bed! Wow! I’m normally not one who enjoys creepy dolls, maybe for entertainment, but I usually end up rolling my eyes or laughing – as with Chucky. This story really drew me in and I was amazed at little things that the author threw in, such as the way the doll “grew” over time. Hage describes the “flesh” of the doll, making it so real, it gave me goosebumps! I hope to read more creepy stories from this author! Don’t miss this one!

Deathly White by Katie L. Thompson

When a bride is stabbed to death on her wedding day, DI Jamie Stanley and the team are called in. They immediately pluck three suspects from the wedding party of over two hundred guests. Why would anyone want to kill a bride on her wedding day?

Love book 2 in this series! I read Poisoned Blue (Book 1), which made me a fan of Katie L. Thompson. Investigator Jamie Stanley does it again! She uses her expertise to find the killer of the bride in Deathly White. There are three suspects and I found myself trying to guess which one killed the bride. Or, could it be a whole other suspect? This story kept me guessing! If you want a nice short, fast-paced mystery, check out this series! Poisoned Blue is book one and both are great mysteries! I am definitely going to pick up book 3! Thank you for another great mystery, Katie!

A Very Postal Christmas

Standard

I am resurrecting an old idea that I’ve attempted the past two winters! After Christmas, all inspiration is lost. I am now starting A Very Postal Christmas once again for National Novel Writing Month (November 1-30). Hoping to get this novel written by December 1! Thanks to International Book Promotion for my book cover! Don’t know what I’d do without them

A Christmas Party is planned for some postal workers. A White Elephant gift exchange is included. Most employees are reluctant to join in, since they are so grouchy, but organizer Angel Noel miraculously gets everyone to gather around the tree, share stories, open gifts, and have some good food. While arguing over each other’s gifts, theĀ employees soon find out that the station manager, Krissy Winters, is dead in her office. Rumor has it that Barry Jingles was sleeping with her. Could he be the murdererĀ or short-tempered clerk, Ginger Snap? Grouchy mail carrier Jack Frost is also a suspect along with Star Spice, the meanest boss around. Which postal nut did it? Investigator Charles Chestnut is called in to solve the mystery!
