Indie Books: Missing Lily by Annette K Larsen

Tour Schedule

Missing Lily“You don’t know who I am,” I whispered. He didn’t move—either away from me, or closer—and after an interminable moment, I stepped back and hurried out of the house.He didn’t follow me as I fled into the night. Lylin was not used to being alone—much less alone, hurt, and lost. So when she is separated from her guard and forced to abandon her horse, she counts herself lucky to stumble upon a manor house. Still frightened by those who chased her into the night, she keeps her identity a secret, calling herself Lily as she accepts the help of kind servants, and the compassion of Lord Fallon. When they fall into an easy friendship, she wonders if her secrecy was too hasty. However, as she gets to know the manor and its residents, Lylin discovers that she’s not the only one hiding secrets, and it may be a very good thing that her host doesn’t know her true identity as a member of the royal family.

Indie Books: The Outer Edge of Heaven by Jaclyn Hawkes

The Outer Edge of Heaven by Jaclyn M Hawkes
Jaclyn Hawkes is likely my favorite Indie author. She has written a slew of books, mostly romance, very clean with religious overtones. She has a historical book Warrior's Moon A Love Story.  I stumbled into her by reading The Most Important Catch. I'veenjoyed everything I've read by her, and I highly recommend reading her books.
In The Outer Edge of Heaven,  Charlie decides to go help out on a ranch over the summer instead of taking on a high powered internship. Charlie wants something different from what her parents want from her, and this book is about how Charlie finds her way. Of course there is a very swoon worthy leading man involved as well. Have you read anything by Jaclyn Hawkes? What did you think?
Just a heads up, she writes LDS fiction, and some of her books are a bit heavy handed when it comes to religious themes. If that's going to bother you, you may want to steer clear of the Rockland Ranch series, where it i…

Indie Books: Slammed by Colleen Hoover

Slammed by Collen Hoover
I first read this more than a year ago. She already had the series completed, which is Slammed, Point of No Retreat, and This Girl. I enjoyed all three of them, as well as her other books Hopeless and Losing Hope. Colleen Hoover just has Maybe Someday come out, which is published by Simon and Schuster.
This is the story of Layken and Will. Layken's father just died and they move as a result. She meets the boy across the street, and they have an obvious and real attraction to each other. And then stuff happens (I don't want to give it away) and they can't be together anymore.
I really enjoyed the story, and I liked the setting of the book, the background of the beat poetry, and all of the characters in this book. It is definitely worth reading.
I like her writing style, and it's definitely worth checking out. Another plus is that the writing is really quite clean, no graphic sex scenes or anything like that, in any of her books so far.
Have you …

Fabulous Friday!

I'm still trying to work out the schedule for posting on here. I'm thinking that Tuesdays and Thursdays might work better for me. But it's been longer than I meant to go without posting, so I thought that I would post something exciting today.

It's finally Friday. I look forward to this day every week, because it means I can sleep in tomorrow. But that's out because my daughter has a basketball game, and we have to leave about the same time we would if she was going to school.

Today's fabulous it the wonderful spring weather. After a week of gloomy rainstorms, it is finally sunny. And it's just gorgeous out. I'm so glad that I can enjoy the good weather. It's not hot, just warm. The perfect day for a picnic or to take a good book out in a hammock.

What's your fabulous today?
