TOUR, EXCERPT & #GIVEAWAY - Hard Luck Girl by Topshee Johnston
Hard Luck Girl - Topshee Johnston

@GoddessFish, @Archaeolibrary, @TopsheeJ, #Mystery, #Thriller


Hard Luck Girl is a mystery about prostitution in a location better known for gardens than gangsters — Victoria, British Columbia.


Rose's life has never been easy. When she finds her pimp murdered it gets a whole lot harder. At first, she sees it as an opportunity but discovers the status quo has been disrupted and she's not at the top of the food chain, not even close.


Avoiding psychopaths, police, and friends like thieves, there is no one she can turn to for help not once she discovers a pimps life is cheap, a prostitute's even cheaper.


Stuck between the desire for a better life and holding on to hers, is a needle she's not sure she can thread. But maybe Hard Luck is better than no luck at all?




"A gritty novel with a surprising and strong female lead. Johnston offers all the expected hard-boiled elements in this mystery—including shady characters, near misses with the police, rampant sex, drug use, and violence.”

A fantastic exploration of hate and revenge told from a variety of perspectives. From betrayed exes and disgruntled employees to vampires and fairy tale characters not satisfied with The End.

This collection includes my drabbles, "A Giant's Revenge", "Bluebeard's Bloody Test", "Guess My Name", "Fate of an Evil Queen", and "One Night in the Lumberjack Camp".

Some of my personal favorites in this anthology were Peter Foote's "Crushed Heart", Kimberly Rei's "The Last Dance", and Maura Yzmore's "The Weave" among others. It was very difficult to narrow down. There were so many great twists, clever word plays, and wonderful descriptions.

Good variety of stories. Some were gruesome, some were humorous, some were beautiful, and some were downright twisted.

These bite-sized stories are perfect for fitting a little reading time in to a busy day and taking small journeys into the darker side of life.

Demon Chains - Ty Johnston


This is book 2 in the series.  

Which explains why I wasn't making any sense out of references to Krons past and the Asylum.

White Collar Rancher (Part-Time Cowboys, #3) by Marie Johnston
White Collar Rancher (Part-Time Cowboys #3) - Marie Johnston



Johnston aimed right for my heart with Justin and Priya. There's something about the bond between a father and his child that puts the moves on my emotions. Justin is clueless on so many levels, but make no mistake about it, he loves his child. Both life and love are about taking risks. Justin and Priya are about to gamble on the biggest bet of their lives. Falling in love. White Collar Rancher is a tale of strong characters that learn emotional life lessons. It's messy, inspiring and captivating reading.
