New Release Spotlight: “All the Love You Write,” a Hauntingly Sweet Teen Romance from D.G. Driver

A story about young love, first love, true love, timeless love,

and the power of love letters.

img_4133Mark and Bethany are two mismatched high school seniors in a new relationship.

It’s doomed to fail.

Mark has adored Bethany since middle school, and she’s finally giving him a chance. Only, he’s clumsy at romance and knows he’ll lose her because of it.

Bethany thinks Mark is sweet. Only, she’s afraid to commit her whole heart to him because he’s going into the army and she’s headed off to college.

Fifty years earlier, a boy and a girl from the same high school shared an amazing love story. They have now returned as ghosts and are interfering in Mark and Bethany’s relationship.

Who are they? Why do they care what happens to Mark and Bethany?

From the author:

All the Love You Write is a full-length novel that began as a novella called Passing Notes that was published in 2015 (and is still available). It was well-received by readers and reviewers and won a small award from the Rosie Amber Book Reviews blog annual contest. At the urging of many readers, I finally decided to figure out what happens next to Mark and Bethany (and the ghosts). This novel is written in 3 parts. The first part, “Love Letters”, is a revised version of Passing Notes with an additional final chapter. It tells the story of the mysterious ghostly notes Mark finds that teach him to write a perfect love letter to impress the girl he adores. In the second part,”So Near While Apart”, Mark and Bethany find an old shoe box full of love letters written between a young couple back in 1970, during the Vietnam war. It’s a sweet and touching story. Part 3, “Straight From Your Heart” keeps the story going from Bethany’s point of view as she and Mark struggle through the final months of their senior year in high school. She also has a ghost meddling with her, but this ghost isn’t as helpful and can be downright vindictive.
I hope you enjoy the novel.

New Release Spotlight: The Trouble with Paradise (a Madeline Dawkins Mystery), Action and Suspense from Cynthia Hamilton

img_4048-3Two dead husbands. Accident, suicide or murder?

img_3996

Life in beautiful Santa Barbara County will never be the same for two grieving widows. One is serving a lengthy sentence for the bizarre tractor death of her much older, land-rich husband. The other is convinced her husband’s death was no suicide.

During Madeline’s four-month convalescence, Steven Ridley—her jailbird ex—manages to get parole on the pretext of retraining inmates for their reentry into society. He has the audacity to enlist Mike’s help to find out if inmate Lindsay Bartholomew had been set up to take the fall for her husband’s death.

Santa Barbara D.A. Conrad Adams makes a personal appeal to MDPI on behalf of Natalie Sheckle, hoping Madeline and Mike can prove whether her husband took his own life, or if someone stitched him up for his own murder.

Never ones to shy away from long shots or lost causes, the duo dives into both cases. But now they must figure out what secrets these two men took to their graves.

The Trouble with Paradise is the fourth book in the Madeline Dawkins Series

About the Author

Cynthia HamiltonA lifelong reader and lover of the written word, I turned to writing as a means of coping with a debilitating illness in 2000. Since then, I’ve written eleven books and have published nine of them. In addition to contemporary fiction, I write detective mysteries–THE MADELINE DAWKINS MYSTERY SERIES–and some memoir– FINDING RUTH and ONCE UPON A LYME…A TALE OF TWO JOURNEYS.

My Madeline series has really captured my mind and heart, allowing me to expand on one woman’s nightmare by giving her dual careers and a supporting cast of characters, with special emphasis on Mike Delaney, her partner in love and crime. THE TROUBLE WITH PARADISE is the fourth installment in the series and is set for release in the summer of 2019. As with the rest of the books, it is centered around Santa Barbara, California, Madeline’s hometown as well as mine.

Being a voracious reader, I’ve always got my Kindle with me, taking advantage of any spare moment to read, even while eating. In addition to reading and writing, I love nothing more than being outside, preferably taking hours-long walks with my husband.

I share my reading experiences through my reviews, though I only review books that I have truly enjoyed. I would take no pleasure in criticizing another author’s work. The reading experience is so subjective; if I’m not enjoying what I’m reading, I will move on to something else, but that is no reflection on the author or the book.

New Release Spotlight: Stacy Claflin’s Latest Thriller “Take On Me”

new release spotlight

Book Description

A traumatized girl wakes in the hospital with no memory of how she got there. Or of anything else. Her only thought is to find the one person she remembers—her Uncle Alex.

When the authorities contact Alex Mercer, he rushes to the hospital. He’s surprised to find it’s his cousin Ayla. Shocked to see the condition she’s in. Stunned to learn her parents are missing.

Alex welcomes her into his home, and the family rallies around her as she tries to recover. But progress is slow, and for every step forward, she backslides. Compounding the problem is the mounting evidence that none of this was an accident. And the answers to the mystery are locked in her fragile mind.

Ayla is scared she’ll never remember. Even more frightened she will—and she won’t like what she recalls. But when she comes face to face with the worst memory of all, she realizes so much more than her history is at stake. And it might be too late to do anything about it.
