The Edible Cookie Dough Cookbook
The Edible Cookie Dough Cookbook - Olivia Hops

I Picked Up This Book Because: I love baking and am always looking for something new to make.


I read through this whole book in about an hour and I am so excited to get ingredients and start making away. I’ve picked out recipes for gifts. Things my nieces and nephews would like to make and there’s even a little something for the pups. These recipes look easy enough for a beginner and can be built upon for even the most senior chef to use.

I can’t wait to try out these recipes. Right now I want to make EVERYTHING.

The Random Thoughts:

Looking forward to leaving reviews for individual recipes as I try them. Probably via Twitter


5 Stars

Too Close to Breathe
Too Close to Breathe - Olivia Kiernan

The Irish are fantastic storytellers, and Olivia Kiernan proves that she is going to be one of the best. Too Close to Breathe is the first in the Frankie Sheehan mystery/thriller series and debut novel for her. 

 

Detective Chief Superintendent Frankie Sheehan who four months earlier, was almost killed in an attack trying to apprehend a killer. When she is called to a Dublin suburb to investigate the supposed suicide of a woman, Eleanor Costello,  who is found hanging from a rope in her home. At first, it seems cut and dried and the case can be closed but after the autopsy report shows old wounds and broken bones Frankie realizes that this is not a suicide. Of course, the first suspect is the husband.

 

Another woman's body is discovered with the same MO as Eleanor's. Then Paul Costello is found and that really throws the investigation into a tailspin. Frankie is challenged with all she has to try to figure out what really happened. Frankie is a strong but flawed, a bit rough around the edges, woman who tries to take charge of her demons and keep an open mind in her investigation. With the help of her team, Frankie pulls out all the stops in this case.

 

Too Close to Breathe is a taut thriller that will have fans of Tanya French and Gillian Flynn excited to read this new author. I really loved the story and definitely want to read more from Olivia Kiernan.

Awesome!
Justice Inked - Olivia Jaymes Justice Inked - Olivia Jaymes

Justice Inked by Olivia Jaymes is a fantastic romantic suspense book.  Ms. Jaymes has delivered a well-written book and furnished it with phenomenal, lovable characters.  Dare is the grumpy Sheriff of Valley Station.  Rayne moved to Valley Station when her tattoo shop in the neighboring town burned down.  Rayne and Dare's story is loaded with drama, humor, sizzle, action and suspense.  I enjoyed every page of this book and look forward to reading more from Olivia Jaymes in the future.  Justice Inked is book 7 of the Cowboy Justice Association Series but can easily be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Too Close to Breathe - Olivia Kiernan

WOW... This is a debut book by Olivia Kiernan. DCS Frankie Sheehan has a lot going on. She is working on solving a string of crimes while also dealing with a crime that happen against her. There is no doubt the crime against her left her with many issues to deal with but working is helping her get on with her life. I like that a Frankie didn't let her issues keep her out of living life. I actually think that because of what happen it helps her keep prospective of the crimes, sees things other have or could have missed, and work harder to solve a crime that others have written off as unsolvable. I was enthralled from the beginning and by the halfway point of the story I thought I had the case solved. Yea, well I wasn't even close. I love being wrong while reading. The hints led me one way while I should have gone the other way. While there were some hints that I knew were taking me the wrong direction since what fun would it be to give it all away at the beginning of the story I couldn't help but follow them. I am a synopsis and cover person. For me to want to read a book the cover has to grab my attention. The cover of Too Close to Breathe did just that. I look at the cover and saw a mystery, a thriller, and a dark story that I couldn't wait to pick up. Then when I read the synopsis and Olivia Kiernan was compared to such amazing authors as Tana French and Gillian Flynn I knew that I would not be able to pass on this book.

About the Author:

 

 When Olivia Hardin began having strange movie-like dreams in her teens, she had no choice but to begin putting them to paper. Before long the writing bug had her and she knew she wanted to be a published author. Several rejections plus a little bit of life later, and she was temporarily “cured” of the urge to write. That is until she met a group of talented and fabulous writers who gave her the direction and encouragement she needed to get lost in the words again.

 

Olivia’s attended three different universities over the years and toyed with majors in Computer Technology, English, History and Geology. Then one day she heard the term road scholar and she knew that was what she wanted to be. Now she “studies” anything and everything just for the joy of learning. She's also an insatiable crafter who only completes about 1 out of 5 projects, a jogger who hates to run, and she’s sometimes accused of being artistic. A native Texas girl, Olivia lives in the beautiful Lone Star state with her husband, Danny and their puppy, Bonnie.
