Let’s Go On a Mommy Date by Karen Kingsbury

Let’s Go On a Mommy Date by Karen Kingsbury

This is a wonderful children’s book-a mommy/child time read. Karen Kingsbury captures the many different ways a child likes to spend their time, like parks, movies or zoos. She makes silly rhymes that will make your son or daughter all giggly…it did mine! But at the end of the story she captures the true lesson of the book: it’s not what you do to have fun, it’s about the loving, quality time that mommies spend with their children, cherishing each moment with them. I give this book recommendation because it not only can make the children smile, it can make the mommies smile,too,when they spend that moment watching their child smiling and loved. *This book was purchased from a book store by me*

TRUE BLUE by David Baldacci Giveaway

TRUE BLUE by David Baldacci Giveaway

About the book: Mason “Mace” Perry was a firebrand cop on the D.C. police force until she was kidnapped and framed for a crime. She lost everything-her badge, her career, her freedom-and spent two years in prison. Now she’s back on the outside and focused on one mission: to be a cop once more. Her only shot to be a true blue again is to solve a major case on her own, and prove she has the right to wear the uniform. But even with her police chief sister on her side, she has to work in the shadows: A vindictive U.S. attorney is looking for any reason to send Mace back behind bars. Then Roy Kingman enters her life. Roy is a young lawyer who aided the poor until he took a high-paying job at a law firm in Washington.

As they investigate the death, they start uncovering surprising secrets from both the private and public world of the nation’s capital. Soon, what began as a fairly routine homicide takes a terrifying and unexpected turn-into something complex, diabolical, and possibly lethal. About… Read more »

Betrayed by Amy Clipston

Betrayed by Amy Clipston

By Amy Clipston This book is the first book by Amy Clipston that I have had the pleasure of reading. And I must be honest and tell you that I am not a big racing fan, but I absolutely LOVED Amy’s book, Betrayed. So much so that I am anxiously awaiting a second racing series book to be released! This is kind of a romantic mystery with a bit of humor mixed in. Set in my wonderful home state of North Carolina, Amy tells the story of Lacey, the young daughter of a Nascar team owner, who has loved the driver of one team car from afar for as long as she can remember. But while she’s away at college in Maryland, tragedy strikes-her father and stepmother both meet death in a fatal 1 car accident….but was it truly an accident? Reese has known Lacey since the day she was born. She’s like a kid sister to him. So when news of her father’s accident reaches him, he’s determined to be there for her. But she’s not making it easy. In trying to convince Lacey that she can trust him he finds himself seeing her as a gorgeous woman, not… Read more »

Author Interview: Surrender the Wind’s Rita Gerlace

Welcome, Rita, to Book Reviews by Buuklvr81. Thanks for stopping by and sharing with us a bit about the novel, Surrender the Wind! Let’s start the interview off by asking where you’re from and what’s some of your latest news? I grew up in a Maryland suburb outside of Washington. I’ve been settled in central Maryland for most of my life, and love it here. I prefer the mountains to the beach any day. Latest news? Well, I’ve been co-coordinating a huge book signing event alongside author Wanda Dyson, and Leah Morgan, an aspiring writer. It will be held on November 28 in Hagerstown, Maryland with 13 CBA authors in attendance, two of which are Christy Award winners. It’s getting a lot of buzz and the attention of our publishers.I’m nearly finished writing a new novel, and planning out the sequel a little at a time. When did you consider yourself a writer and what inspired you to write your first novel? I’ve always loved books and reading. When I was around eleven, I wrote a short story and drew the illustrations. As a teenager, I wrote poetry and wrote essays. The desire to write bit me in the late… Read more »
