I'm Losing My Voice

 


        Hello, gentle readers! Happy New Year (yes, I know, I’m a few days late)! Hope you are all well and staying healthy.
I’m taking a well-deserved break from reading through my manuscript, finding mistakes, looking for holes and editing, as I go along. My voice is nearly gone (which pleases the DH no end, I’m sure) because I’ve been reading out loud. And there are a lot of words! I always do that because I can hear my mistakes so much better than I can read them (the brain is an amazing thing….if a word is missing or misspelled, the brain just fixes it). But it’s going well. I’m more in love with my hero and heroine than I was before! This is a good thing!
2022 is shaping up (I know, we’re only a few days into this new year) to be a great year (if I say it often enough, will it be so? I can only hope. I am a perpetual optimist and believe in the power of positivity).
As I’ve mentioned, I have finished writing The Maverick & Miss Miller. I’ve completed the synopsis, which, if you know me, is quite the accomplishment….I can write a 89K novel, but condensing down to just three pages takes perseverance, some tears, and chocolate…lots of chocolate! Oh, and ice cream! Can’t forget that! I’ve written the query letter so all that’s left is correcting my edits and sending everything off to my beta readers. I’m excited! It’s been a while. The last novel I finished is still just sitting here, waiting for me to get my butt in gear and do something with it (like maybe submit it…what am I waiting for?)
The day job is going well, too! Busy, but busy is good. Keeps me out of trouble (or maybe helps get me into trouble, I’m not sure which).
Things at home are good, too! I have re-landscaped my front yard and it looks lovely (I opted for low maintenance which means rock). Next up, I’m looking at a new gate (but need to save up for it first).
Well, my break is over. I gotta get back to reading.
Stay well! Stay safe! And remember to spread kindness wherever you go!

Veronica Reviews - Recipe for a Homecoming by Sabrina York

Recipe for a Homecoming

Sabrina York

5 Stars

★★★★★  

“It was a beautiful thing surrendering to love…there was such peace in it.”

After surviving an abusive marriage, Veronica James is returning to her hometown to help care for her grandmother.  The comfort she finds in the familiarity of her grams bookshop as well as catching up with childhood friends is exactly what she’s needed.  So, when she bumps into her first love, Mark Stirling, she begins to wonder if she could possibly find love again…and what harm could possibly come from agreeing to test the waters by being “friends with benefits”?  But when Mark starts to want more and Roni’s past comes looking for her, these friends to lovers are going to have to decide if they are ready to put all their cards on the table and take a leap of faith or fold and walk away…

Dear Reader, Sabrina York’s romances are so heartfelt, and I’m so in love with this series!  This installment to her Stirling Ranch series shows no matter how broken one may feel, there is healing strength in being accepted unconditionally.  “Anything is possible if you just don’t give up...” 

Loved and highly recommend!

A Scot Mess by Caroline Lee

 A mess of doubles is what you'll find as Finn Oliphant and his brothers, half of them twins (Haha), looking for brides by order of their father.

Finn's father insists that the first son to sire a son will inherit the kingdom.  Great to have the kingdom, but Finn already has his mind on a beautiful lass regardless.

Fiona MacIan is the deal maker for her family, sister of a laird, where she bargains for materials and meats.  She and Finn encountered each other over an ale after an afternoon of bargaining, with laughs and blushes, and a kiss.


After a long wait over many miles, Finn calls on Fiona.  He wants to wed her and bring her to his land.

Fiona is ecstatic and nervous all at the same time.  What if he's not what she remembers?  What if he doesn't feel the same about her anymore?  Fiona's identical twin sister accompanies her.

How can a multitude of identical twins figure out who they're talking with, or who they're kissing?  Let's leave it at that.

Mixed hearts or mixed twins, the blunders and misconceptions mount.  Read this delightful story to find out who knows who their match is.

Happy reading,

Dawn

Well, It's Done

 

        Hello, gentle readers! Hope you are all well and staying safe. Hope you all had a lovely holiday too!
So, as you may know, I took a few days of PTO over Christmas, bound and determined to finish my current work in progress. Well…I did it. I typed The End, just this morning, in fact. And I’m not quite sure how I feel about that. I’ve lived with these characters (and loved them) for so long, it feels sorta like a letdown that I finally finished the story. Almost like losing a beloved friend.
Of course, typing The End is really only the beginning. I still need to have my critique partner go over the last two chapters and the epilogue. Once I incorporate her corrections/suggestions, I move on to printing out all 267 pages (or more at that point), grabbing my red pen and reading everything out loud. Then it’s off to my beta readers to look for holes and glaring errors. Oh, I need to write the synopsis as well (and that’s a big dread on my part…condensing 267 pages down to two or three…not my favorite thing).
And then, I can start sending it out and cross my fingers that a publisher likes it. Whooo-hooo!
And that’s all that happening here. Even though I’ve had a few days off from the day job, I haven’t stopped working, but you know what? It’s all good. The writing thing I do for me, because I love it…it’s part of who I am and I’m not the same person when I don’t write.
One more thing before I go…
Happy 2022! I wish for you to be happy and healthy. I wish for you to be surrounded by loved ones. Actually, I wish for 2022 to be a spectacular year in any way you need it to be.  
Stay well! Stay safe! And remember to spread kindness wherever you go!

Veronica Reviews - TEMPTING FATE by Kerrigan Byrne

 




Tempting Fate

 

(Goode Girls #4)

by


Kerrigan Byrne






★★★★★

5+ Stars

Historical Romance




“When he was near, when he touched her…she didn’t feel so hollow.  She could believe that she possessed courage.  He made her brave.”

From the first moment he sensed her presence…from the first glance into her angelic face…from the first time he saved her from harm, Gabriel Sauvageau finally knew peace.  Broken and disfigured from years of torment and torture in the fighting pits, Gabriel has only known how to bring pain and death to those who dare attack what he considers his…and Felicity Goode may not realize it, but she has most certainly been claimed…


Anxious, broken, hollow, weak…these words are on constant repeat in Felicity’s mind.  Never being as strong as her twin, she is even less so now that her twin married and is currently traveling with her husband.  Felicity knows she must continue on without her sister by her side, and after an attack on her life, she must acquire a bodyguard.  But just the thought of meeting with strangers has her anxiety elevated to the point she feels a panic attack on the rise…until she bumps into a mountain of a man…one whose very presence brings her a sense of peace.  Felicity immediately offers this beastly of a man the job…her very own avenging angel…


Love always has a way of finding broken souls and mending them together…Gabriel and Felicity’s romance is one of true acceptance…of true love…of a tale as old as time…


*SOBBING*


Dear Reader, I DID NOT WANT THIS STORY TO END! 


That being said, I wish I had read it slower…much, much slower in order to savor each delicious bit of Gabriel…but alas, I devoured Tempting Fate in one day.  If you are new to the Goode Girl series, I’d recommend reading in order to better enjoy the characters.  However, if you are a fan of the Beauty & the Beast storyline, you’ll LOVE LOVE LOVE this installment, and will most likely go back and read the other installments for more snippets of my (yes, MINE!) beloved Gabriel!  Highly recommend & wish I could give more than 5 Stars!!



Sharing what I love,

Christmas at Fireside Cabins by Jenny Hale

 The warmth, love, and cheer of Christmas are in every page of Jenny Hale's story.  

The atmosphere couldn't be warmer than the cabins in the mountains of Tennessee with white snow draped over the evergreens.

Here's the problem...  Lila is a wonderful woman who followed her sweetheart to Nashville and promptly got dumped.  Her job sucks, and she doesn't know what to do next.  Fortunately, she has a fabulous group of girlfriends.  That's not enough because they're all moving on in their lives with work and family.

One last grand Christmas week together is what Lila has.


The girls rent a spot at Fireside Cabins.  The cabin is worn, the host is lonely and in need of spirit, and the coffee shop has a handsomely, cranky bachelor ignoring his customers.

Theo owns the coffee shop, but closes himself from feeling, well, anything.  He could be a thoughtful and caring man, if he didn't have to hide.  

Lila sees all the beauty and anguish in the merry week of Christmas with friends, and needs to fix it.  That's what she does.  And Theo is on the list of needing fixing.

A delightful holiday romance.  Hale gives me goosebumps of cheer and many other Christmas stories to read.

Happy holidays,

Dawn
