Review Resolve by Jill Cooper

The epic two book finale starts here. The stakes are higher. And the enemy is one of their own.
It’s all come to this. This moment in time. Everything Natalie Johnson has fought for.
Newly promoted paladin commander Natalie Johnson is about to bring the demonire tracking system online. If she’s successful Meadow’s Creek may finally be safe from bloodsuckers. If not, the egg on her face will be enough to make a gourmet omelet.
But when old friends and foes begin showing up in town under questionable circumstance, it’s clear something new is on the horizon. The murder of a prominent official threatens to cripple the brittle peace Natalie has brought to town.
Alternate realities and timeline jumps all converge revealing truths, deceptions and worst of all, roads not taken. Natalie must face her worst fears, her biggest regrets, and most of all a deep longing that nothing will ever be the same again.
Meanwhile a long sought after ally brings them all to the brink of madness. And his betrayal? Could be the biggest heartbreak of them all.
In the tradition of young adult vampire fiction such as Twilight and Buffy the Vampire slayer, comes The Dream Slayer.

Regrow Lost Hair and Restore Its Natural Color to Gray Hair – Do It With Your Mind
Do It With Words – No “Magic” Potions Or Lotions Needed
Do It With Words is a straightforward guide into the power of your mind.

The book describes in precise detail how the author:
Regrew lost hair; restored its natural, dark brown color to his previously white hair;used self-hypnosis, guided imagery and meditation to achieve all results without the aid of any external preparation.
Editorial Reviews
“It’s a wonderful application of something that I have believed in for many years now – the power of mind over body . . . This technique is worthy of serious attention.” – Michael J. Hadfield, D. Hyp., MBSCH
“Kfir Luzzatto . . . has laid down a path for you to reach many goals traditionally considered difficult or impossible. I see Kfir as very much a visionary pioneer in the mind-body field. We are fortunate to read what he has discovered and reveals . . .” – Forbes Robbins Blair

When I saw the title, I just laughed, even though I know you ca do a lot with your mind and feel better, I am a Lupus patient and I force myself t feel better often! But still I was reserved. The Author is very positive, he shows pictures of his progress and he made me a believer which isn't easy trust me, I haven't tried it yet myself but I will. It is a nice, positive read.

Excerpt: Whiskey Witches by S.M. Blooding

Detective Paige Whiskey comes from a long line of witches. They may not all be the most powerful, but they are outspoken and supportive of their community. She alone has no gifts. She can’t summon fire, can’t read minds. She knows the arcane. She’s studied it. That, along with her connection to the Whiskey Witches, lands her some pretty strange cases. Like the sacrificial murders of St. Francisville, Louisiana. There’s a killer on the loose, choosing people in a vain attempt to raise a demon. Not just any demon, though. A man born long ago, made a demon in order to protect the Gate to Hell. Together with demon hunter, Dexx Colt, her kitchen-witch grandmother, and her paranormal investigator brother-in-law, they unravel a conspiracy far bigger than a few simple murders, and re-discover Paige’s gift. She’s a demon summoner and she’s key to the killer’s plan.

“Who are you?”

Dexx spared the cop a glance over Paige’s still form then proceeded to ignore the question as they 

cleared the front door. “Fanny,” he shouted to the owner of the inn who he’d been flirting with for the 

last two hours, digging for information. “Grab my bag.”

Alarm slashed across Fanny’s round face as she scrambled to her wide sandled feet. “What’s goin’ 


“Just grab the goddamned bag.” Paige was heavy. He’d carried her before. They’d gotten into a 

scrape or two in years past, but she’d never felt like a brick ton before. 

Did possession come with weight? How much did a demon weigh? 

The cop stopped him on the second-floor landing with an iron grip on his arm. “I need answers.”

Paige’s eyes shot open, the rich nut-brown gone replaced by pure black. A grimace twitched across 

her face. “This vessel belongs to me.” 

The words might have come from Paige’s mouth, but the voice had too many layers to be human.

That was the first time Dexx had ever seen a black man turn white.

Dexx got Paige into her room. Fanny shambled next to him, her grey eyes wide as she crossed 

herself. He removed his duffle from her arms and dumped Paige into a chair. 

He didn’t have everything he needed for a full-on demon’s trap. 

It could be something else. 

No. He rummaged through his bag. This was Paige. It was a demon. Couldn’t be anything else.

“What’s going on?” the cop asked through gritted teeth.

Paige stared at him with her jet-black eyes and smiled a sickly smile. 

Yeah. Demon. Dexx threw the contents of his bag onto the bed, then walked to the door. He 

scribbled a few, quick protective sigils on the wall with a Sharpie. 

“What are you doin’?” Fanny asked. “Is that permanent marker?”

“I’ll paint over it when I’m done,” Dexx muttered, moving to the windows. 

The cop watched for a moment, then took Fanny’s elbow, pushing her toward the door. “Don’t tell 

anyone what you just saw.”

“But I don’t even know what I just saw. What is—”

“There was a trap at the scene and Detective Whiskey was injected with a drug.”

“Oh, my God,” Fanny said, her hands going to her mouth. “Chief, is she gonna be all right? Don’t lie 


“She’ll be fine, Fanny.” He pushed her the final step out of the room. 

“I’ll call the doc.”

Dexx shot her a feral grin. “Did I forget to mention I’m a doctor?”

“She’ll be fine.” Chief White closed the door firmly in the woman’s face

Review The Banshee's Embrace by Victoria Richards

Jacqueline Huston has no idea what has been happening to her, but it started the night she was attacked by men with strange powers. While mortally wounded in the attack, Jacqueline knows she would have surely died if her husband hadn’t thrown himself into the line of fire. But being alive is little comfort when your husband is dead.
Ever since that night, Jacqueline has been strangely drawn to death for reasons she doesn’t understand. When death is nearby, she can see when it is coming for someone. However, it’s her urge to sing when she gets close to dying people that she finds most disturbing.
Toby Williams is a wizard and a member of the Brotherhood of Merlyn, an ancient order of powerful wizards. He’s been charged by an ancient order of wizards to keep an eye on Jacqueline. Half banshees are rare, and if placed in the wrong hands they can be a powerful weapon. As owner of Merlyn’s Bar, a place the lovely Ms. Huston frequents, it seems an easy enough assignment for Toby.
When a sinister wizard attempts to kidnap her, Jacqueline learns a frightening truth about her heritage, and her powers. Will she be able to use her powers to save Toby, the man she is falling in love with, or will her powers consumer her, causing her to lose everything she holds dear?

Review: A groovy Kind of Love by Karen Wojcik Berner

Uptight British lit lover meets a free spirit at a book club and his world is turned upside down!
After placating to his father’s demands that he play Little League baseball and major in computer programming in college rather than his beloved English literature, Thaddeus assumed that several years into his career, he would finally get some peace and quiet.
Then he met Spring Pearson, the younger, free-spirited daughter of Hippie parents, at a book club meeting. Instantly smitten, Thaddeus finally worked up the courage to ask Spring out. But will an old college pinkie-swear promise Spring made fifteen years ago get in the way of this bibliophilic romance?
”A Groovy Kind of Love” is the third and final installment of Karen Wojcik Berner’s Bibliophiles series. Written as stand-alone novels, each book focuses on one or two members of a fictional suburban classics book club, revealing their personal stories while the group explores tales spun by the masters.

Buy on Amazon | B&N | iTunes | Smashwords Kobo

My Review:

The story starts with five year old Thaddeus, who is on his way to get his first library card, he is so proud of it and he becomes a vivid reader. Thaddeus has a very dominant father who insists that Thad follows the family legacy with Baseball. Thad appears to be a very good pitcher and his dad being the coach of the little league demands a lot from  Thad, hen it almost cost him something important Thad and his mother stand up against his dad and refuse to play again. And then we meet Spring, spring is a sweet, but shy girl who is a daughter from hippies, they own a juice bar and even though Spring loves that, The rest not so much! Thad and Spring met at a book club.

Second part is where Thaddeus finally has the courage to off Spring help and from that comes a date and then Spring needs to chose, Thad or Joshua. Easy to read book, I like the story, I recognized so much of the stories in the book, it was fun, characters great and fun. I enjoyed reading it!

One Last Song Event & Preorder One Last Song by S. K. Falls

I was seven when I swallowed my first needle.

My mom freaked out and rushed me to the emergency room.

She stayed by my side all night.

I never wanted it to end.

When you spend your whole life feeling invisible-when your parents care more about deals and deadlines than they do about you-you find ways of making people take notice. Little things at first. Then bigger. It's scary how fast it grows. Then one day something happens that makes you want to stop. To get better. To be better. And for the first time, you understand what it's like to feel whole, happy . . . loved. For the first time, you love someone back.

For me, that someone was Drew.
