A Holiday Fling by Mary Jo Putney 99 cents!
A Holiday Fling (Starting Over Novella) - Mary Jo Putney

British actress Jenny Lyme is having a pretty decent career. Though she may not have become an international movie star, she’s well loved in England for a role on British TV and continues to work regularly. 

Now her hometown community center is in danger of being sold. The only hope for its salvation is if Jenny can film the Christmas Revels production she’s directing and sell it for television broadcasting. For that she needs a really good cameraman—and she just happens to know one….

Greg Marino has worked hard for his success as a Hollywood cinematographer, and he has an Oscar sitting by his coffee maker to prove it. But he still has fond memories of the fling he had with Jenny Lyme ten years earlier when they worked together on a disastrous movie. When she calls and asks if he’d film her community Christmas show, he decides it would be a fun break in his demanding life. And it would be really, really nice to see Jenny again. 

The show is a delight, and Jenny and Greg find the old attraction is still there. But is it possible to build a life together when both have demanding careers thousands of miles apart?

Early Friday Reads/Holiday Weekend Reading
Through Waters Deep - Sarah Sundin
The Good Girls Revolt: How the Women of Newsweek Sued their Bosses and Changed the Workplace - Lynn Povich
The Toymaker - Kay Springsteen
Bloom: Finding Beauty in the Unexpected--A Memoir - Kelle Hampton

To all my fellow Americans...

 

We have plans to have our holiday meal at a friend's house with other military families. Today I baked 3 pumpkin pies, 1 apple crisp, and defrosted one pecan pie (requested by my friend's husband and courtesy of my friend Marie Callendar). The rest of the weekend will be spent reading and watching movies - I DO NOT DO BLACK FRIDAY. I worked at Wal-Mart prior to going into the military and worked 3 BFs - honestly I would rather go back to Iraq than ever participate in the BF madness.

 

Here's the reading I hope to get done by the end of November:

1. Through Waters Deep (Waves of Freedom #1) by Sarah Sundin (for the second square)

 

2. Good Girls Revolt by Lynn Povich (for the first square- black and white cover)

 

3. The Toymaker by Kay Springsteen (for the first square - heroine is named Ivy)

 

4. Bloom by Kelle Hampton (Pop Sugar challenge and hoping to fill in another square on the 16 Tasks)

You think you have the blues? Nein, das hatte Billie Holiday.

 

Billie Holiday, eine der größten Jazzsängerinnen, die jemals gelebt hat, erzählt ihre Geschichte in ihren eigenen Worten: Ihre Armutserfahrung in der Kindheit, das Leben als schwarze Frau vor der Bürgerrechtsbewegung und ihre persönlichen Suchtkämpfe spiegeln sich in der unglaublichen Klangfarbe und Tiefe ihrer unverwechselbaren Stimme wider.

 

Wir alle haben es in ihrer Musik gespürt, aber Fans werden es genießen, mehr über die Geschichte dieser musikalischen Legende zu erfahren. Eine gute Biographie oder Autobiografie ist ein bisschen wie Blues: Sie scheut sich nicht vor den Schmerzen, die das Leben begleiten und verliert trotz allem nie den Sinn für das Schöne und Erhabene.

 

Für alle, die dem November-Blues kreativ entkommen wollen, empfehlen wir „Lady Sings the Blues“ oder eine andere inspirierende Lebensgeschichte aus unserer Kollektion: http://bit.ly/2jdSHVb

RELEASE BLAST, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - Yours For The Holiday by D.J. Jamison
Yours For The Holiday - DJ Jamison

Yours for the Holiday is a seasonal friends (sort of) to enemies story, that is sure to warm you up! JJ is friends with Derek, and Remy is Derek's younger brother. For years, JJ has liked what he has seen, but didn't know how to deal with it. Throw in the fact that he is worried about upsetting the only family he has ever really known, and you can understand his dilemma. Remy, however, thought JJ was only ever teasing him, and learnt to give as good as he got. That didn't stop him from having feelings for JJ, but he resigned himself to the fact that it would never be.

What you get with this book is a seasonal glow (and this from someone who is more the Christmas Grinch than the Christmas Fairy!), a fantastic story, likeable characters, and situations that are completely believable.

This story is excellently written, with no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. The pacing was smooth, and the scenes flowed from one to the next. With sexy times, and plenty of humour, this is a wonderful book to read during the holidays, and definitely recommended by me.

* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and the comments here are my honest opinion. *
