Big thanks to NetGalley for the ARC of The Two Lila Bennetts by @lisaandliz Get your copy of this summer read on July 23rd!
For those of you who are not familiar with these awesome women, they have been friends for over 30 years and have co-authored 5 novels. I had the pleasure of meeting them at their Chicago launch of their book "Girls' Night Out" last summer. I had so much fun being a part of that night and listening to them talk about their books and the great dynamic they have as friends. -The Two Lila Bennetts-
Lila Bennett’s bad choices have finally caught up with her. And one of those decisions has split her life in two. Literally.
In one life, she’s taken hostage by someone who appears to be a stranger but knows too much. As she’s trapped in a concrete cell, her kidnapper forces her to face what she’s done or be killed. In an alternate life, she eludes her captor but is hunted by someone who is dismantling her happiness, exposing one secret at a time.
Lila’s decorated career as a criminal defense attorney, her marriage, and her life are on the line. She must make a list of those she’s wronged—both in and out of the courtroom—to determine who is out to get her before it’s too late.

I was invited to run a session for business studies students at the 'Enterprising Day' at Harris Academy Rainham. We discussed various paid entrepreneurial initiatives I ran whilst at secondary school, from selling posters to braiding hair, as well as the four key solutions currently on offer today. One young lady made a bold declaration that she would write a fictional book!👏 Proofreaders should be on standby!😉

You will only be truly successful if you are completely passionate about what you do, and you put your heart in it. If you do not believe in yourself and the value that your business offers, then others are not going to believe in you either.

Blurb for Forged: Book One of the Trial By Fire series... What happens when you wake up one day to discover that you’ve been on autopilot your entire life?
My life has always been more downs than ups. Good things rarely knocked on my door. But hard knocks never failed to kick my ass. Nothing good would ever happen to me.
Or so I thought.
In college I discovered women, and never looked back. But even though I was never alone, I was always lonely.
I didn't know exactly what I needed. Only that I needed something more.. Until I saw her. Then I knew. She was what I needed. We were perfect. Incendiary! We were going to be what happily ever afters were about!
Or so I thought.
Now I'm ten years older. A hundred years wiser. I have survived so many trials by fire, nothing could penetrate my scarred and jaded armor.
Or so I thought.
I’ve been very busy this weekend and have an extensive writing plan for this week sorted out as well. In between family time (we homeschool & hubby has been on leave) plus adjustments to life, I’ll be working on getting to know my characters better. Have I told you their names changed? I know!! It’s crazy! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ What about you? How’s your week going? What are you reading? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I’ve finally gotten a chance to start reading #UnbrokenFire by @awheeler2017! If you haven’t read a novel by this lady, then look her up! 🥰 📚 #MondayThoughts#amreading#bookbuzz#writerslife#writerscommunity#readersnook#bookstuff#booklover

Against all odds, the bartender gets the girl...
The term friends to lovers never ends well, as a publicist, I know it’s a walking headline of a disaster. So when things shift with my long-time friend from college, I’m torn between what feels right and the inevitable fallout.
I’ve given up on finding “Mr. Right,” but Wyatt won’t give up on me; and I don’t know why. Despite knowing better, I find myself falling for him. The gorgeous bartender who’s off limits.
I pour drinks, while other people pour out their hearts. I’m great at giving advice, but following it... not so much. The last time I listened to my heart it didn’t work out so well. I chased it and nearly destroyed my friendship with the girl of my dreams.
I can’t keep bottling up my feelings and I know Heather feels the same, but I know I don’t deserve her I know my time to be with her is limited, but I’m ready to take another shot at love. With her.

I’m writing a craft book! Still working on the official title but it will be all about creating lovely, long-lasting arrangements and decor for your home with artificial flowers and greenery. When does it come out? How did I get a book deal? Where am I in the process? All those answers are on the blog! Follow to link in my profile to learn more! 🌿💐🌷🌹🌺🌸🌼🌻
In an attempt to get over this weird reading mood I started reading The Trial of Lizzie Borden (@simonbooks#partner ) yesterday and it peaked my interest. This will definitely not be a fast read but right now I’m in such a weird reading mood I think it will work out perfectly to read a little bit here and there. Do you know a lot about the case? Do you think Lizzie is guilty?? This book is filled with so much detail I am very intrigued to get to it all.
Another thing I did to try and break the reading funk was start watching @theactonhulu 😳😳😳 WOAH. Have you watched it yet???? I saw the documentary and the 20/20 special all about Gypsy and Dee Dee but to watch it play out like this was intense!

The feeling - expectation, or something rather like it- came upon all three of them and they spoke in unison: “Something is going to happen.”
Fill your mug full of coffee and cozy up in your blankets because something amazing and magical does indeed happen among the pages of Diane Setterfield’s latest release. I went in to this one knowing very little and while it did get off to a slow start, I ended up absolutely loving it.
Three little girls are missing and an entire town will be changed one dark and rainy night when a stranger brings in the lifeless body of a child that he has pulled from the river. Several hours later the child awakes though she can not speak or communicate with any one around her. No one can explain how the child has returned from the dead and no one knows who she is. ✨
Her unknown identity and presence set off a series of events and we meet an array of characters (I loved Mr. Armstrong and Rita so much) who all harbor personal reasons for claiming the child as their own. As the forces of darkness and light dance across the pages, Setterfield explores themes of love, betrayal, and just how much a parent is willing to sacrifice for their family. I found Once Upon A River to read like an enchanted dream... it was touching and beautiful and I am so glad that @tlcbooktours reached out to me about featuring this book. Once Upon A River is in stores today and I highly recommend it. ✨

"Life has a way of shattering our expectations, of leaving our hopes in pieces without explanation. But when there’s love in a family, the fragments left behind from our shattered dreams can always be pulled together again, even if the end result is a mosaic." ― Kelly Rimmer, The Things We Cannot Say
First five star book of 2019 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
The Things We Cannot Say by Kelly Rimmer is easily going to be one of my favorite books of this year, possibly one I’ll keep recommending to people for a very long time. It is mostly historical fiction and partly contemporary, a heartbreaking yet uplifting story, a complete tear jerker that’ll effortlessly rip out its reader’s heart, but despite all its woefulness the hope and heart in here would also leave its reader entirely fulfilled. It releases tomorrow on March 19th, and I'll say buy it or borrow it, just read it and I promise, you won’t be disappointed. I have a full review up on the blog, link in bio. Thank you @tlcbooktours and @harlequinbooks for my free review copy 😊🙏🏻
