Hollywood Moon by Joseph Wambaugh Preview and Giveaway

Hollywood Moon by Joseph Wambaugh Preview and Giveaway

Thanks to Miriam at Hachette Book Group, I have a copy of this book to giveaway to one lucky winner!!!! About the book: There’s a saying at Hollywood station that the full moon brings out the beast–rather than the best–in the precinct’s citizens. One moonlit night, LAPD veteran Dana Vaughn and “Hollywood” Nate Weiss, a struggling-actor-turned cop, get a call about a young man who’s been attacking women. Meanwhile, two surfer cops known as Flotsam and Jetsam keep bumping into an odd, suspicious duo–a smooth-talking player in dreads and a crazy-eyed, tattooed biker. No one suspects that all three dubious characters might be involved in something bigger, more high-tech, and much more illegal. After a dizzying series of twists, turns, and chases, the cops will find they’ve stumbled upon a complex web of crime where even the criminals can’t be sure who’s conning whom. Wambaugh once again masterfully gets inside the hearts and minds of the cops whose jobs have them constantly on the brink of danger. By turns heart-wrenching, exhilarating, and laugh-out-loud funny, Hollywood Moon is his most thrilling and deeply affecting ride yet through the singular streets of LA. About the Author: Joseph Wambaugh, a former LAPD detective… Read more »

Camp Club Girls #1:The Mystery at Discovery Lake by Renae Brumbaugh

A huge mystery at a christian camp. Join Elizabeth, Kate, Sydney, Alex, Bailey and MacKenzie as they try to solve the mystery of Discovery Lake and become close friends, learning important lessons along the way. This is an adorably cute read for tweens, teens, and adults alike! This book not only has an entertaining plot, it also teaches about friendship, working together, honesty, forgiveness and most important, having a faith in God. The use of Scripture is wonderful! The girls in this story can definitely make you smile! If I had a daughter, I would want her to read this story not just because she would enjoy it, but because it teaches what’s right. A highly recommended book for the young girl in your life or if you just want a faith filled story that’s sure to make you smile! *This book was provided for review courtesy of Barbour Publishing*
