Sentenced to Heaven #Comedy #bookreview

From Amazon: A humorous, feel-good tale to keep you laughing! Alan has been accused of being a vampire, a vampire in heaven. His canine buddy, a little Pekingese named Nippy, also comes under question. No one understands how Alan has managed it, but his heavenly body has changed. He has actual blood coursing through his heavenly vessel, and he’s become addicted to the stuff. When he’s labeled a vampire, everyone becomes concerned that his condition could spread. As a result, heaven is placed under quarantine. Its pearly gates are closed until the mystery is solved. Fortunately, Alan gets help from unexpected sources, including heaven’s canine community. A little dog named Nippy becomes a friend that supports Alan as he tries to find a solution to his woes. Mayhem and laughter come together to make this a tale that will leave you smiling.

My Review: This is the first book that I’ve read by Bazinet. She has woven a lovely take on heaven and a vampire, one that takes caring about others to new level. We all can learn from the narrative, laugh, commiserate with the loss, and be happy regardless of what comes our way. For Alan to realize his full self, finally, was scripted within this book. Five stars.

Getting Away With Murder #book #JoyWood

From Amazon: Getting Away with Murder. Claire is happily married to the charismatic Max Maric and living the dream in a luxury house in the prestigious Sandbanks area of Poole Harbour. She loves her husband and their precious son, Freddy. Her life is perfect. Or so she thinks. Annabelle is Max Maric’s lover. She’s a wealthy widow and is all set to marry him, just as soon as he’s divorced. Her life will then be perfect. Or so she thinks. One man, two women, but they can’t both have him. And he doesn’t get to choose – the schizophrenic decides, with a sophisticated plan to eradicate her nemesis in the most heinous of ways. The intended victim needs a friend. Fortunately, she has a new one she’s become close to. But nobody told her that false friends are worse than open enemies.

My Review: This book sucked me in immediately. Normally, I don’t read many murder books but this story was woven so tight, I had to finish it as soon as possible. Luxury, wealth, high street clothing, gorgeous women and men, add in some mental disorders and a couple shrinks, one bloody cocktail. Five stars! Oh, she might kill again. After all, she got away with her first murder. Conniving she is, indeed!

Why You Need A Comma Before Because After A Negative Clause – by Derek Haines… — Chris The Story Reading Ape’s Blog

on Just Publishing Advice: In general, you don’t use a comma before because in most sentences. When you add a second clause to a sentence starting with because the meaning is usually quite clear. You are explaining the reason why something happened in the first clause. For example, I’m always hungry now because I’m on a […]

She Ran Away From Love #kidlit

From Amazon: The Light of Love pours down on Frilly. It shines so brightly that she quails and runs away. Upset with herself for feeling scared, she wakes her good friend Mawson and pours out her confusions. She wants to learn how to be bold and is convinced that she can do this by going on a quest. With muddled help from Mawson she sets off into the great Out There. But is a quest to find oneself really the answer?

My Review: This is an interesting book for children. Frilly wants to find who they are as a stuffed animal, and thus sets out on a quest. The photography illustrations are cute and blend well with the narrative. Five stars for sure.

Liberty Belle #romance

Found on Amazon: Main Street is bustling in Snowberry, Minnesota, and nobody knows that better than the owner of the iconic bakery, the Liberty Belle. Handed the key to her namesake at barely twenty-one, Liberty has worked day and night to keep her parents’ legacy alive. Now, three years later, she’s a hotter mess than the batch of pies baking in her industrial-sized oven. Photographer Bram Alexander has had his viewfinder focused on the heart of one woman since returning to Snowberry. For the last three years she’s kept him at arm’s length, but all bets are off when he finds her injured and alone on the bakery floor. Liberty found falling in love with Bram easy, but convincing her tattered heart to trust him was much harder. Armed with small town determination and a heart of gold, Bram shows Liberty frame-by-frame how learning to trust him is as easy as pie.

My Review: Mettler has outdone herself yet again in this unique contemporary romance. As a nurse, I pay close attention to the medical facets in each of her books I read. Mettler is spot on in providing information about multiple sclerosis without the narrative being overwhelmed in medical speak. Emotions run high and happy endings do exist side by side with chronic illness, various disabilities and the like. I loved the aspect woven into the story about a teen with Downs Syndrome, high functioning at that. What a romance. Five stars!!!!!
