Wheels Of Wisdom By Tim And Debbie Bishop

Cover of Wheels of Wisdom by Tim and Debbie Bishop.Wheels of Wisdom by Tim & Debbie Bishop is full of common sense, adventure, and yes wisdom.

The authors write about the trips they took across the country on bicycles. The book is sectioned into 52 lessons, and they are great for when you don’t have too much time to read. You can read each section seperatly, and go back a week later and not be lost.

Reading this is a wonderful way to travel the country without actually going anywhere. I could not imagine riding across the country before reading this.

If you are thinking about making a cross-country bike ride for the first time, there are lots of helpful tips and good advice in this book.

Most of the “lessons” apply to anyone, anywhere.  The book is well written and easy to read. I like it.

About the book:

After three tours totaling over 10,000 miles, Tim and Debbie Bishop have discovered wisdom and truth from the seat of a bicycle. In Wheels of Wisdom, the authors share the life lessons they learned on the open road.

When you’re looking for enlightenment, you can find it almost anywhere, be it from watching two herons saunter across a Florida road, pedaling to a dead-end in a Kentucky tobacco field, or observing eagles flying overhead in Montana. In each lesson of this book, you’ll find practical insights, inspiration, and encouragement—along with personal reflection questions that will help you:

– Adopt the right mind-set
– Conquer fear, worry, and inaction
– Overcome obstacles
– Relish life’s journey

Certain principles are universal whether you are bicycling across America or chasing your own lifelong dream.

You may be continuing your education, connecting with new people, looking to change jobs, or simply wondering about your future. Wherever you are in life, Wheels of Wisdom will give you a fresh perspective and new motivation for your own adventure. Not only will you encounter meaningful truth as you travel vicariously to new places and meet new people, you’ll also experience some genuine “God moments” and have some fun on the way.

So, pack up your dreams and passions and come along for the ride. It’s time to learn on the open road!

Secrets Of A Reluctant Princess By Casey Griffin

Secrets of a Reluctant Princes by Casey Griffin book cover.Secrets of a Reluctant Princes by Casey Griffin is a fun adventure/romance. I enjoyed reading it. I really liked Adrianna. Living with cameras following you all the time, can’t be easy, and she had to deal with that as well as all the “normal” teen problems. Did a fair good job of it too.

I liked the larping episodes as well. I used to be involved with a D & D group, but only online. I had no idea that larping was the same thing, just live. The live action play sounds like a lot more fun. Especially the costumes.

I loved the ending of this one. Not gonna tell you about it, cause you really need to read the book for yourself, but I will say it has a bit of fairy tale feel. Really great read. Wouldn’t mind if there was more about these characters in the future.

 

About the book:

Secrets of a Reluctant Princess by Casey Griffin

Wear the right clothes. Say the right things. Be seen with the right people.

Kevin, the adorable sketch artist who shares her love of all things nerd, isn’t exactly the right people. But that doesn’t stop Adrianna from crushing on him. The only way she can spend time with him is in disguise, as Princess Andy, the masked girl he’s been LARPing with. If he found out who she really was, though, he’d hate her.

The rules have been set. The teams have their players. Game on.

Nobody’s Pawn By Amy McNulty

Nobody's Pawn cover.Nobody’s Pawn by Amy McNulty is a very satisfying read. It is a great end to the Never Veil Trilogy.

This book clears up a lot of the questions about why the world in this book is set up the way it is. And why some of the people acted the way they did. I ended up liking the Lord in this book a lot better. Turns out he had some good reasons for how he acted.

Noll finds out the reasons for a lot of things she didn’t understand too. Like what happens to the people who disappear. She isn’t too happy about some of it, and I don’t blame her.  She gets to go through the veil and find out what is on the other side too.

There are a lot of adventures in this story.  It will keep you entertained for a while.

Of course you can read this book without having read the other books and it will still be a good read, but trust me, you are going to want to read the others. So you might as well buy the whole set.

You can buy them all on Amazon.com:  Nobody’s Goddess here, and Nobody’s Lady here.  I reviewed both of those books too, you can read my reviews here and here.

About the book:

Men can love, but they can also hate. Noll knows too well that the men in her village have adjusted poorly to the freedom of their hearts, but she hopes to bring peace back to her community. With the lord’s return, Noll feels confident that together, they can work to settle down the villagers, but in his rebirth, he remembers only one thing about her: that she caused the curse that tortured him for a millennium in the first place.

Determined to start anew, Noll must accept that, romantically, she and the lord are better without one another, but she’ll need his help to uncover what’s really behind all of the suffering in her village. Escorted to a land beyond the mountains, Noll uncovers the truth about her village and the strange occurrences in which she’s had a hand. When someone who loves her discovers the same things and betrays her, Noll feels powerless to stop her village’s fate. By learning to forgive and seek forgiveness, Noll finally understands true love of a free heart—along with true sacrifice.

Always You By Ruth Roberts Review

Alway YouAlways You by Ruth Roberts was really good. I wasn’t sure about the characters at first because they seemed like typical career driven people that really don’t care about much but work.

Actually until the accident that killed their parents, the two girls were exactly that. And it was affecting their health and happiness.

In order to get custody of their sister, both older girls had to move back to their hometown. Turns out that parents do know what’s best. Sometimes anyway.

The romance is wonderful and the story deals with eating disorders too.

About the book:

After tragedy strikes, Diana Mathison finds herself back in her home town of Magnolia Falls, sharing custody of her baby sister with her step sister. Reeling from the death of their parents, the three sisters have to learn how to lean on each other and live life without their two pillars of strength. Diana is full of doubts in her ability to raise a little girl and run her father’s law firm. The last thing she needs is to have Zack Connelly back in her life. The last time she let him in she ended up hurt and broken hearted.

Zack has given up on true love. It’s not for him and it’s certainly not with Diana Mathison. He came back to Magnolia Falls to heal after losing his sweet wife and their unborn child at the hands of a drunk driver. Hannah never had a chance at the love and happiness she deserved, therefore neither should he. His life plan is to take care of his sister and niece for as long as they need him, and to be the best veterinarian the town has ever had. That’s enough for him…or is it?

amazon

Excerpt:

The girls ran off. Zack and Diana were left looking at each other. Neither spoke.

“I think I’ll move to a safer area before I get singed by the fireworks,” Jen said.

They turned to look at her. Both had forgotten she was there. “There aren’t any fireworks, Jen,” Diana said, confused.

“Sure there are, hon. You just haven’t seen them yet.” She patted Diana’s arm and walked away.

***

Diana felt her face get hot as understanding dawned. “She didn’t mean us, did she?”

“Afraid so.” Zack’s lips twitched with barely contained amusement. “If you wanted to ask me out you didn’t have to set the girls up to do it,” he teased.

“I seem to remember you asking me to dinner,” Diana said. Did the man eat testosterone for breakfast? He looked delicious. His khaki shorts made his tan legs look lean and muscular, and with a red, button-down shirt and brown leather sandals, he looked like he was ready for a walk on the beach.

“So how did I end up at your house with you making me dinner?” He winked at her.

Touché,” Diana said.

“However, you do have the set up part right. But it wasn’t me. It was Jillian who got the girls to set us up on a date.”

“Oh.” She suddenly felt deflated. “You don’t have to go. I can take them. I’m sure you have better things to do with your Saturday night.”

“Better than taking the three prettiest girls in town to a movie? Not a chance. Cassidy and I will pick you both up at six.”

“You do realize it will be me going, not Liz?”

“Of course,” he said, confusion marring his brow.

“You said prettiest, I thought you meant Liz,” Diana said. He stopped walking and looked over at her. She found it hard to hold his gaze. She hated feeling vulnerable, being compared to Liz had always made her feel that way. Slowly he cupped her cheek. “I was talking about you. It’s always been you, never Liz. Got it?”

Had she ever seen that intense look in his eyes? She nodded. Message received all the way down to her toes. Jen had been right. There were fireworks, and she’d just gotten singed.

The Fall Of Lord Drayson By Rachael Anderson Review

The Fall of Lord Drayson

The Fall of Lord Drayson by Rachael Anderson was a fun read. I read it straight through. It is well written and easy to read.

I really liked Lucy. I think Lord Drayson was lucky to meet her. He needed someone to knock him off his high horse.

And you know that is exactly what happened. He fell off it anyway.

The author did a good job on the background and the historical parts too.

If you like regency romance you will like this book. If you like historical romance you will like this book. If you like ANY romance you will probably like this book.

About the Book:

Who is he really? A high and mighty lord or a lowly servant?

When Colin Cavendish, the new earl of Drayson, informs Lucy Beresford that she and her mother need to vacate the house they’ve called home for the past two years, Lucy is fit to be tied. They have no money, no relations they can turn to for help, and nowhere to go. How dare the earl break the promise his father had made to the Beresfords without so much as a twinge of conscience?

Fate plays her hand when Lucy discovers the earl unconscious and injured in the middle of the road. When he awakens with no recollection of who he is, Lucy seizes the opportunity to teach the earl a much-needed lesson in humility and tells him that he is nothing more than a mere servant. Her servant, in fact.

And thus begins the charming tale of a pompous lord and an impetuous young woman, caught together in a web so tangled that it begs the question: Will they ever get out?
amazon

Excerpt

He stared at her incredulously, as though she had escaped Bedlam. “Are you in your right mind, woman?”

Lucy leaned forward and planted her palms on his bed so that her eyes were level with his. “My name is Lucy Beresford. I have lived in Askern all my life. I’m the sole daughter of a vicar and a seamstress who lived most happily despite their differences in station. When my father passed away, I came here, to this dower house. So yes, I am in my right mind. It is you who are not.”

The earl’s jaw clenched, and Lucy took some pleasure at the sight. Perhaps he would come down off his high horse and show at least a small amount of kindness or respect.

“I may not know who I am or where I came from,” he finally said, “but at least I do not feel the need to tell tales.”

“Tell tales?” Lucy gaped at him. Was he accusing her of telling untruths? Her, of all people? What untruths? How dare he!

Lord Drayson glanced down at his fingers, frowning when he spotted grime under his nails. He began to scrape it out as he spoke. “Claiming to be the daughter of a vicar and seamstress is all very romantic, but it cannot possibly be the truth.”

“And why not?” she asked.

His gaze returned to hers. “In my experience, the daughter of a vicar would behave with more decorum, would know how to make a palatable broth, and would never allow herself to be alone in a room with a man who is not her relative. If there is one thing I know with absolute certainty, it is that you are no relation of mine.”

Lucy’s jaw clenched as she fought to control the rage building inside her. Ever so slowly, she pushed herself up to standing and glared down at the earl. “You are correct in thinking I am no ordinary vicar’s daughter. I do not love unconditionally. I show decorum only when I wish to. And I despise those who care for no one but themselves. But I do not tell tales.”

He actually chuckled, but it was more of a scoff than a show of humor. “Did you learn those traits from your father?”

“Do not speak of my father.”

“I would prefer to speak of myself, but you do not seem to share that preference, so perhaps we should speak of your father instead. Where is he, by the by? I would very much like to meet him.”

Lucy’s fingers became fists while her conscience became a battleground between all that was good and evil inside her. It was a short battle, with evil making a quick triumph.

Ever so slowly, her body still trembling with anger, she lifted her chin. If he was going to accuse her of telling tales, then tell them she would. “Very well, Collins. If you must know, I am your employer. And though you may not remember me, or this house, or your position in it, or the fact that you are perfectly susceptible to coming off a horse, just like any other human, I still expect some kindness and respect from you.”

“What on earth are you talking about? What position?”

There was not a hint of hesitation in her voice when she answered. “You are a servant in this house.”

My Darling Dorothy By Jo Virden

My Darling Dorothy by Jo Virden book cover.My Darling Dorothy by Jo Virden is a really good romance. I liked the way it included the letters, from each of the main characters, to show what was going on with them.

It also had a few sections where the characters were daydreaming, and that was a bit confusing at first, but it does help you get to know the characters.

The story is wonderful. I got a bit mad at Jack,  and was really rooting for Tommie.  It did have some sad bits, but that is true to life. Especially during a war.

The book is well written and easy to read. I liked learning more about how life was back then. Things sure have changed a lot.

About the book:

Based on authentic letters from the era, My Darling Dorothy is a timeless love story that transcends both hard times and the brutal impact of war. The tumult of the Great Depression and World War II provides the background for a novel about three young people; Tommie, Jack and Dorothy and their challenges, struggles, defeats and triumphs.

Tommie struggles to survive the Bataan Death March in the fall of 1941, clinging to his dream of a gratifying future with Dorothy as his bride. On the front lines of the European Theatre, Jack experiences the horrors of endless battle. Dorothy, caught between the two, works to maintain her dream of a life beyond small-town Nebraska. The hopes and hardships they share are reflected in the letters that they exchange. Are they remnants of lost dreams, or the foundation for a joyful future?

The Thing Is By Kathleen Gerard Review

Cover picture of The Thing Is by Kathleen Gerard.The Thing Is by Kathleen Gerard is an interesting read. It is about a dog who is really a sort of guardian angel. I say sort of because he is obviously still all dog too.

I have been depressed myself. Grief can hit you really hard. It took me longer to get over it than it did Meredith(the main character). Perhaps because I didn’t have a dog like the one in this book.

There are some interesting characters in this book. I really liked all the people who live in Evergreen Gardens, the independent living facility where the dog, named Prozac, is a pet therapy dog. Those old folks are feisty.

I really like how they got together to find a way to stay independent too.

The end of the book wasn’t what I expected at all.

I liked this book. I would be happy to read any other books the author writes. Especially if they contain dogs.

About the book:

Can a woman mired deep in the throes of grief have her heart and soul rallied by a therapy dog named Prozac who possesses supernatural wisdom and a canine Mensa IQ?

Meredith Mancuso is depressed. Ever since the death of her fiancé, she has shrunk from the world. Even with her successful writing career, she’s not motivated to work. When her sister, Monica, begs for a favor, Meredith wants nothing more than to say no. But she’s ultimately roped into pet-sitting an orphaned Yorkshire terrier named Prozac.

Blessed with spiritual wisdom and a high IQ, Prozac is an active pet therapy dog. To heal broken-hearted Meredith, he rallies his fan club at Evergreen Gardens, an independent living facility, where he visits each week.

Prozac and the community of resilient older folks challenged by losses of their own propel Meredith, often against her will, back into the land of the living. Meredith learns that most people carry some sort of burden, but it’s still possible to find meaning, purpose, and joy—and even love—along the way.

Hair In All The Wrong Places By Andrew Buckley Review

HairTour
Cover of Hair in all the Wrong Places by Andrew Buckley.Hair In All The Wrong Places by Andrew Buckley is a wonderful fun read. It was an easy, quick, and very enjoyable story.

I really liked the main character. Colin starts out as your typical unpopular outcast, but ends up at the wrong place at the wrong time, or was it the right place at the right time? Either way things start to change.

He is in for an exciting time. So is his school, and he learns that lots of things are not exactly what he thought they were.

I would love to read more stories a about Colin. I expect he is gonna have an exciting life.

About the book:

Publication Date:  June 7, 2016
Publisher:  Month9Books

What has he done?

What’s happening to him?

And what on Earth is that smell?

For Colin Strauss, puberty stinks. Blackouts, hallucinations, and lapses in memory are the perils of growing up werewolf.

Worse than that, Colin worries he might have had something to do with the recent attacks on the townspeople. He may have eaten a person. It doesn’t matter that it’s someone he doesn’t particularly like. What kind of boy goes around eating people?

Foolishly, all Colin can think about is how Becca Emerson finally kissed him for the first time. Yep, hormones are afoot. Yikes!

But girls will have to wait. Collin better get himself under control before someone else ends up hurt or worse . . . dead.

Change Of Heart By Jennifer Moore Review

Cover of Change of Heart by Jennifer Moore.Change of Heart by Jennifer Moore is an immensely enjoyable story. I loved it. It was well written, and a quick read, partly because I didn’t have to stop for anything. I started reading and didn’t even come up for air till it was over, and I think it ended too soon.

I loved the characters in this book, especially Val. She worked so hard to get where she was, and was just so likable. Nathaniel was really likable too, and I liked his managing to look past appearances.

I love “Cinderella” type clean romances, where poor or lower class characters end up with all, or at least most, of their dreams coming true.

This would be a great book to take with you to the doctors office. You wouldn’t mind waiting for the doctor,  and if he got in there early you might be upset.

About the book:

This summer, Nathaniel Cavanaugh vacations in Lobster Cove to spend quality time with his kids after his estranged wife’s tragic death. Successful and well-connected, he is on the fast-track to the highest legal positions in the country, but his family life suffers. After an accident throws Val nearly into his lap and costs her a job opportunity, Nathaniel surprises himself by overlooking her outlandish appearance and lack of qualifications to offer her a job as his nanny for the summer.

Valdosta McKinley wishes for an internship at a Paris Art Institute to use her newly acquired art-history skills. She knows Nathaniel could never develop feelings for a girl from a trailer in a rural West Virginia holler—a lesson she learned the hard way years earlier.

Will pursuit of their professional goals require Nathaniel and Val to give up the dream of being a family?

Nobody’s Lady By Amy McNulty Review

Picture of the cover of Nobody's Lady by Amy McNulty.Nobody’s Lady by Amy McNulty is the second book in The Never Veil series. This book continues the story from Nobody’s Goddess, which was really good (check out my review here).

I liked this one better than the first one. It is one of those books that pull you in, and keep you in till the end. And I didn’t want it to end. This is one of those books where I wish the author would wait till all the books are written, and published before they release so I don’t have to wait so long to read the next one. I’m ready for the next book in this series NOW.

The background is what really makes this story so great. The men in the village don’t really know how to deal with all the changes, because they never had to do much thinking before. The women are having a hard time adjusting to the changes too, but in different ways.

The main character Noll has done a bit of growing up and I like her more in this book.

The end is a bit twisty, definitely not what I expected. Seems like there are still a lot of questions to be answered in the next book, for which I’m waiting impatiently.Tour Banner for the Blog Tour of Nobody's Lady.

About the book:

Nobody’s Lady (Never Veil #2) by Amy McNulty
Publication Date: April 12, 2016
Publisher: Month9Books

For the first time in a thousand years, the men in Noll’s village possess the freedom to love whom they will. In order to give each man the chance to fully explore his feelings, the lord of the village decrees all marriages null and void until both spouses declare their love for one another and their desire to wed again. What many women think will be a simple matter becomes a source of village-wide tension as most men decide to leave their families and responsibilities behind.

Rejected by the lord and ashamed of her part in the village’s history, Noll withdraws from her family and lives life as an independent woodcarver. This changes when her sister accuses her of hiding her former husband Jurij from her—and when Jurij eventually does ask to move in. Determined not to make the same mistakes, Noll decides to support her male friends through their new emotional experiences, but she’s soon caught up in a darker plot than she ever dared imagine possible from the men she thought she knew so well. And the lord for whom she still has feelings may be hiding the most frightening truth of them all.
