"Otis and the Scarecrow" by Loren Long
Otis and the Scarecrow - Loren Long

This is a great book about friendship. This could be a great book that could use to teach the importance of friendship. I would use this book during fall season. Could be used for comprehension and predictions

Melanie Jayne
You Only
Cover Reveal – 12/09/2015

 

Blurb:

 

Fifteen years ago the hometown princess ran away...

 

Her prince, Finn Webber, has moved on but he never forgot his heartbreak. Now, Hale Cameron, his lost love, is back and he is curious. This new Hale is smart, sassy and sexy.

 

Hale is back home and all grown up. She's smarter and sassier. But there are still things she needs to resolve, one of which is Finn Webber, the guy whose heart she broke. She hopes he can forgive her for her past mistakes. What she doesn't expect is his reaction to her.

 

Time may have passed, but old feelings are still alive. Find out what happens when the hometown princess comes home and discovers that her prince isn't as immune to her as she believed.

 

 


About Melanie Jayne:

 

I live on a grain farm southeast of Indianapolis, Indiana with my very patient husband of twenty-five years and our two English Mastiffs, Buster Brown and Ginger. I graduated from Indiana University when it was the #1 party school in the country and I took great pride in helping the school achieve that ranking.

 

I haven't figured out what I want to be when I grow up. I change careers every decade. I have worked in retail, a federal courtroom, travelled across the state closing loans, and behind the scenes in a casino.

 

I've always had an active imagination so when a good friend suggested that I try writing a book, I thought why not, it should be fun. It has, but I have had to work very hard to learn how to do it. I am so lucky for the outpouring of advice and education from so many in the industry, plus the hand-holding and cheerleading from My Gurls. I also have an incredible Ad-man-istrative Assistant, who tries to keep me under control. He rolls his eyes so much that I worry about a permanent condition.

 

When I ‘m not working or writing type stuff, I sleep, watch courtroom TV shows, and sports. I was a competitive pro-am ballroom dancer for ten years and I read as many books as I can.

 

I love to attend Author-Reader Conventions and look forward to meeting you.

The Last MacKlenna by Katherine Lowry Logan
The Last MacKlenna - Katherine Lowry Logan

I’m in love with a fictitious character by the name of Dr. Elliott Fraser. Not since Rhett Butler have I found a character so endearing, so arrogant, so loving, so annoying – a truly complex man who is given to the reader bit by bit until by book’s end you want to cry because the story is over.

 

The Last MacKlenna is the prequel to The Ruby Brooch and I must say I don’t usually give much thought to prequels. But this one took me by surprise – grabbing me by the collar and throwing the book at me (figuratively). Meredith Montgomery meets Elliott Fraser over the Christmas holiday when each of them escapes from their busy worlds and stay at a B&B in Scotland – one in search of her ancestry and the other there for various reasons. For Elliott it is love at first sight although he mistakes his love for lust. Meredith – a young widow and head of a California winery that’s been in her family for generations – see Elliott has a holiday fling, perhaps her last as she has recently been diagnosed with a return of the breast cancer that she beat five years earlier.

 

What ensues is a cat and mouse game between the two that takes us from Scotland, to Kentucky, to California and back again as we try to keep up with these two corporate jet-setters.

 

The Last MacKlenna is a love story, a murder mystery, a bit of history, and a throw back to another time and place that will keep the reader guessing until the final pages whether or not its true love for Meredith and Elliott. I couldn’t wait to finish the story yet didn’t want the story to end. I’m looking forward to The Sapphire Brooch.

 

If you like Scotland, men in kilts, and whiskey then this book is for you – and even if you don’t you’ll learn to love them after you read this book.

Darla's Story - Mike Mullin

I saw this book and decided to read it, since I have been interested in this series for a long time. 

But after reading this? I am not sure if I want to read it. I am sure Darla will play a big role and after this book I am not sure if I like her that much. 

I loved her at the beginning, she was a bit awkward with things, a bit silly, a little tomboy, but as soon as the volcano erupts and hell breaks loose she turns into a mechanical zombie that is only thinking about fixing this and that, going here and there. I felt kind of sorry for her mom. While they shared enough moments, I felt like Darla was just too cold regarding things.

Then we got Ruby, Oh God, Ruby. The reason why this book is also losing a star. She was a total idiot (sorry, but she was), determined to annoy everyone and I truly disliked how she acted and how she did things. It might have all been a show to steal stuff, but I don't buy that. Some people are just like that. I have no clue how Darla's mom ever stayed with her for a while without throwing Ruby out. And then the ending, it was to be expected.

I am kind of curious as to who the boy/girl/person in the shed was, so maybe I will try out book 1.

Never Stop Loving You (Chester Farms #1) - Keri Ford
Never Stopped Loving You - Keri Ford

Book – Never Stopped Loving You (Chester Farms #1)

Author – Keri Ford

Publication Date - December 2, 2013

Type - Stand Alone Series

Genre - Romance

Rating - 4 out of 5 Stars

 

ARC provided by Carina Press via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

 

Synopsis

At eighteen, Kara Duncan had already made her fair share of mistakes, choosing the wrong boy and earning herself a bad reputation in the process. Hurt and humiliated, she'd packed up and moved on, sure that everyone in Bella Warren, Arkansas, would be better off without her. She'd planned never to return, but when crisis strikes, she has nowhere else to turn.

 

 

After seven years, Wade Chester thought his feelings for Kara were finally ancient history. Until he sees her again, standing on his front porch just as she'd done a million times before. She needs his help—and his family's crops—if her canning business is going to survive. The rest of his family has let bygones be bygones, so why is it so hard for him to let go of the past?

 

While Kara claims to be interested only in putting things right, the old heat flaring between them is undeniable. But Wade will need to risk his heart—and the reputation of his farm—to prove that they're meant to be together.

 

Review

This is such a cute story between a couple who never had any luck getting together in the past.  This is a heart-felt romance between two lost loves who made many mistakes during the past decade.  Running away never solves a thing and through this book, Kara realizes what is most important to her.

 

 

Yeah, there were times I really wanted to smack her upside her head because of her inability to just let the past stay where it belonged and that is “in the past”.  She continually recounted the mistakes she made and based her future and her happiness around that instead of seeing what was right in front of her face.

 

Kara comes back to Bella Warren to fix the mistakes she made in the past.  The first mistake was running away from her best friend and her brother Wade.  Kara has always had feelings for Wade but things didn't work out between them which led Kara to make one of the biggest mistakes in her life. 

 

 

The story continues with Kara trying to win back the hearts of the town along with putting right the mistakes of her past.  Wade doesn’t want this though – he can feel the sexual tension brewing between him and Kara and wants to take it to the next level.  Kara continually begs him off, pleading with him to work on getting their friendship back instead.

 

Nope…doesn't work – too much has transpired between the two of them….but what happens now?

 

 

Wrap Up

If you are looking for a cute romance with little angst…then this is a book for you – It’s a perfect book for those snowy or rainy days wrapped up in a blanket with your E-Reader in one hand and a cup of cocoa in the other!  Snuggle up with Kara and Wade and find out if they will ever get past the past :-)
