 Good Wednesday all , the day before Thanksgiving for all my American friends and book lovers . Today we are going to review Roma Gray's new book HAUNTED HOUSE HARBOR ( project 26 book 8)

                        BOOK BLURB 

What Do Zombies Fear?
The world has just been struck by the "Perfect Apocalypse": nuclear bombs, disease, famine,
zombies, killer bees and many other hidden terrors. As the world crumbles, a group of survivors
discovers there is only one safe haven: the mysterious town of Haunted House Harbor. For some
reason, all of the unleashed perils cannot penetrate the city limits. But there's one
problem--Haunted House Harbor has its own dark side... 
A unique and very different zombie novel. If you enjoy dystopian fiction, but are looking for something different, you've found the right book.

                       MY REVIEW 

      This book has the trifecta of what you think the world will end . We have zombies . killer bees and the world ending . The perfect apocalypse and the only place to go is Haunted House Harbor.  As a group of survivors make their way to the small town . They don't know that the town has its own dark secrets . Will they survive the apocalypse and will they survive the town .
   This book is the perfect twist on the zombie story , besides the undead we have real life things that could happen if fallen into the wrong hands . Nuclear weapons and famine that could wipe out everyone . You are on the edge of your seat when you are reading . The characters are not your super hero military type characters . The central characters are just your average everyday people  a mother in a wheeler and her daughter who has autism . Throw in confused police officers and lazy construction workers . You have a rag tag band of survivors . But you can't forget one of the main characters the town of HAUNTED HOUSE HARBOR. This small town is holding a lot of secrets and play a big part in the survivors life or death . 
   The author has a way of writing that is direct ,she doesn't do endless descriptions of the mundane things . She will keep you the edge of your seat as you read . She will take you on a roller coaster ride . I found myself holding my breathe a few times as I read . I binge read this book in one sitting, I just couldn't put it down .  This book really is more then just the zombies , its about survival and what would you do . You will loose yourself in this book and have it done in no time . If you like action , zombies and haunted houses this is the book for you . Get it and read it this thanksgiving .

Special agent Colt Asher lives for his job. So he's surprised when an unexpected week as a hands-on uncle fills his life with meaning. Of course, it helps that the babies' gorgeous nanny is unlike any woman the love-'em-and-leave-'em lone wolf has ever known. But Anna's rumspringa might lead her straight back to her village. Or, if Colt lets her, Anna might just be his Christmas wish come true…

                          MY REVIEW 
    This is a sweet romance that all started with a stolen guinea pig .  Special Agent Colt Asher is on assignment to find the guinea pig that was stolen from his truck . That leads him to the Amish village where he meets Anna Miller . She is beautiful and so sweet . That when he becomes the babysitter to his twin nephews he hires her to help him out . Will they let their heats guide them and have the best Christmas ever . 
    The story is a sweet love story that you will read in one sitting , the characters are well written . Anna is a sweet girl with the dreams of more . She wants to finally discover where she really needs and want s to be . She isn't as na├»ve as she comes off as at the start . She is full of love and laughter . and starts to go after what she really wants and that is Colt . Now Colt is kind of idiot sometimes he knows he wants more with Anna but his past makes him do everything in his power to stay away . But as they babysit the nephews there are laughs abound . Anna is a natural Colt not so much . They are a great couple that will have you cheering for them to finally get together .
 The story is sweet and you will laugh and cry and laugh some more . So if you want a sweet love story for this Christmas check it out

I live on the coast of Maine with my teenaged son, our sweet beagle, Lemon, and a black and white cat named Cleo.

I've been reading and loving romance novels for almost thirty years and I'm so excited about my first category romance series: HURLEY'S HOMESTYLE KITCHEN: Book 1, A COWBOY IN THE KITCHEN, was published in March '16; Book 2, THE DETECTIVE'S 8 LB, 10 OZ SURPRISE, was published in May. Book #3, THE COWBOY'S BIG FAMILY TREE, follows in October/November. In 2017, three more Hurley's novels are coming, starting with THE COOK'S SECRET INGREDIENT in February and CHARM SCHOOL FOR COWBOYS in May. And another in November!

                             BOOK BLURB 

From Rivalry to Revelry…to Romance?

Competitive swimmer turned real estate magnate Michael Kelly is tastier than a Christmas cookie. But now Charlotte Locke's sexy former lover is her top business rival…and the father of her unborn child. Determined to keep her professional cool, the hotel heiress hides her delicate condition from her family—and from her commitmentphobic ex. Until Michael moves in next door, exposing a desire left unquenched and Charlotte's pregnancy secret.

Michael may not be daddy material, but losing Charlotte and their baby isn't an option. He'll close the deal at any cost—even if it takes a Christmas miracle to prove this playboy is reformed for good!
                       MY REVIEW     Back from her European hiatus , Charlotte Locke is back to take control of her life and the life of her unborn child . To prove to herself that she can make it on her own as a top notch real estate agent . But when her brother drops a bombshell on her that here ex lover and sex on a stick ex boyfriend will be selling half of the condos. Will they survive selling the condos and will they find their way back to each other after the secret is revealed . 
     This was a fun read , the characters were well written and I loved the snarkiness of both Charlotte and Michael. Charlotte is a fun character, she is so determined to make it on her own . She doesn't realize what is right in front of her face . She is so determined not to let Michael get under her skin he does anyway . Michael is the playboy who knows what he wants and he wants Charlotte . He realizes that she was the one that got away but his stubborn pigheadedness won't let him make her his . But in the end when she needs him , he is the man she wants and needs .
   This was a fun read with a bit of spice added in . This was the first book I have read by this author . I will be reading more .

Good Tuesday all

  Good Tuesday all , I hope that everyone is doing great , I think I have finally come through the fog of this dang cold . I must say being down and out gives you tonnes of time to read . Today we are going to review DIFFERENT NOT DAMAGED( dark fantasy short story collection ) by Andy Peloquin

                          BOOK BLURB 

Strength from Weakness
Disability becomes Power
Six stories, one impactful message:
- A voiceless child painting visions of death.
- A killer with a deadly message plagued by a burden of guilt.
- A priestess divinely empowered to absorb others' pain.
- A soldier fighting for courage in the face of fear.
- A broken warrior-priest on a mission of vengeance.
- A thief desperate to escape the burden of his memories.
Betrayed by mind or body, these people struggle to survive in a grim world that takes no pity on the weak. Yet they will discover that they are simply different, not damaged.

You'll be hooked by this collection of fantasy stories that shatters the preconceptions of what is possible.

With each page you'll be drawn in further and further. These stories may even change the way you see the world.

                          MY REVIEW 

     This is a collection of short stories that will make you think . The author has written this book about different types of disabilities and trust me when you read theses stories they will change the way you see these special people . 
    The first story in the book is about a soldier dealing with his past and the battles he fought .  The ptsd of this soldier helps carry the story along . The second story is about a young artist who can't stand to be touched. This story actually broke my heart and made me understand more about autism spectrum just a bit . As each story gets better and pulls us in more .  All the characters are well written and you feel for them and start to understand them more . 
    The author writes this stories based in his fantasy world Voramis . When you read the characters you feel all of their emotions and you really feel their struggles . You start out feeling sorry for them but as you read you start to feel proud of what they can get through . Even though each story is different they flow together with ease . I would recommend this book to everyone who loves a fantasy book and wants flawed heros that will make you think a little different about people with disabilites
