"Don't trust anyone..." So whispers Robin's mother just moments before she dies. 
Uprooted from all she's ever known, 17-year-old Robin Finley is sent to her mother's old hometown to live with an uncle she's never met. The town is small, but it shelters big secrets. Robin encounters two mysterious young men, a tragic mansion, and disturbing questions about the past. While unraveling the threads of her mother's shrouded life, Robin meets more confusion. Her soul longs for peace and her heart yearns for love--yet she's consumed by suspicion and fear. Why did her mother flee this town so many years ago and never return? Robin's determination to discover the truth ensnares her in a tangled web that spans the years and threatens to destroy her future.

Book Description

 June 14, 2012
Meet Mina Kitchen, a forty-something single who likes to cook - and cook and cook. In fact, her zest for whipping up trays of canapes is dwarfed only by her weird luck and mountain-lion size tabby cat, Vinnie. That, and her godmom's tendency for blackmailing new members into joining St. Bart's. Okay, maybe Mina's Swiffer-addicted neighbor, Vito, is a bit weird, too. As if all that wasn't enough, Mina's a Jersey girl transplanted in the midst of the Amish-flavored countryside of Lancaster, PA.

Things get really complicated when she learns that her neighbor Vito is in a witness protection program, and her dry cleaner deals in prescription samples. Throw in a few mysterious flaming feces flingers and a fuse box labeled in Arabic, and you have a recipe for catering disorders.

Kitchen Addiction! will keep you smiling when you're not LOL-ing. Set in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, you'll find a surprising cast of characters, humorous plot twists, red herrings and actual recipes. Well, some of the recipes are real. The others you might to take with a pinch of salt, and some Tums.

If you're looking for a funny fiction read, packed with humor, excitement - and recipes - look no further. Lund's debut "chick lit" novel blends fun characters, great dialogue and zany capers into a frothy fiction that's sure to amuse. The novel also delivers a virtual tourist romp through the actual streets of Lancaster City and its surroundings.

The Library Book

This is the book I "checked out" from my local Library.... What an author!  This is actually two books "bundled" into one for the Kindle... I just started the second one today and went right back to my Library and have another one by her on hold... How often do you find an author so good you want to read more from that author? Not very huh?  Well this was one of those times.  I love it!

If you can't find Ms Alers' stuff at your library, you can always feed your Kindle from Amazon!

Enjoy, dear readers!

Book Description

Knowles is a fast moving tale of a warrior which starts out in Texas in the 1870's. When a small town sheriff is gunned down in the street by the murderous Hays gang, everyone in Reliant looks the other way except for Knowles. Johnny Knowles is determined to track down and bring the killers of the man he considered to be his father to justice, come what may.

This is a richly accurate, fast moving, action packed taste of the old west which takes you for a ride with young Johnny Knowles on a steamboat down the Mississippi to the fancy pleasure houses of New Orleans and the meanest neighborhood in the world on Gallatin Street. Knowles' pursuit leads you through a series of hair raising adventures in the toughest towns in Texas.

But this story is not just about seeking revenge. It is also about helping others and finding true love. The whole panorama of the era unfolds before you, as you follow along with Knowles in a surprise twist to the final showdown.

Thanks Jon!

Hi Cindy! I just wanted to let you know that my first Kindle ebook - a funny, rhyming mystery about turkeys on Thanksgiving Day - is now finally going to be free for the next three days. (Until the stroke of midnight before Thanksgiving day).

Here's the blog post I wrote about it... Happy Thanksgiving! :)

Happy Endings

It took 5 minutes to get my little library issue worked out. I had to ask what they did if someone was homebound or reclusive. The nice lady at the desk said "No problem! They can just have someone bring in the proof of residence for them."

.... Is it just me? Or did that open the door for other questions?

Here's a goodie... FREE on Amazon Today...
Not your average love story.

Book Description

Genre: Paranormal romance and fantasy adventure


BOOK TRAILER: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n_w-eZwPJbA


Warning: Mild language, sexual innuendo, and adult situations


Never marry a stranger...even if he is a drop-dead gorgeous immortal king.

Never pretend to be a princess.

And most importantly...never slip on an ancient wedding ring you know nothing about.

Sarah Larker returns to a cave where her sister disappeared ten years earlier. She walks through a portal and is mistaken for a runaway princess on the run by a dangerous immortal king in medieval times. Her plan is bold as well as daring—become this princess, wed the king, and slip on an ancient wedding ring that will unlock the portal back home. Then find her sister and run as fast as she can out of Dodge. But taking on the identity of Princess Gloria comes along with dangerous consequences; and slipping on the ruby ring comes with an even higher price.

There's more to your Local Library..

If you haven't yet, certainly check out your local library for access to the latest books for FREE - borrow them from your library for your Kindle or iPad... really almost any ebook reader will work.

If you haven't had a library card in years, this a great time to reestablish that wonderful relationship with  your library.

Of course in my case nothing is ever that simple. I doesn't seem as though it has been very long since I established my relationship with our local Cordova Library here in Memphis... checked out a few books for the Kindle, wrote about how easy it was, then while browsing a few nights ago to see if there were any new ones I could put myself on the waiting list for (yes, there is a waiting list), I discovered my privileges had expired. I called the Library the next day and was told by someone (who didn't seem to give a flying flip one way or the other) I would need to physically come in and prove I still live where I live to have my library card "renewed."  What happens if someone can't physically make it to their library? I guess they are just out of luck.

Guess I'll be making a trip to the Library today...

Free on Amazon Today

How about a complete series? I don't know how long this will be free, but today it is...
Author's Note: The Callahans: The Complete Series, in five volumes, is available in one Kindle book at Amazon with a discount price below the five separate novels.

Vol. I - Destiny: Fleeing an abusive father and a hopeless life in Ireland in 1895, nineteen-year-old Tom Callahan takes passage on a ship bound for America. On board, he meets Katrina Hansen, a young Norwegian woman traveling to Utah. It's not a likely match. The brash Irishman is a Catholic, a brawler and a young man without prospects. Katrina is a refined young woman, yet naive in the ways of the world. Lured into a polygamous marriage, she finds herself abandoned on a remote Mexican beach as the man she loves, unaware of her status, seeks his fortune in Alaska. Destiny is a sprawling historical novel set at the turn of the 19th century, played out in such far-flung places as New York City, the gold fields of Alaska and Old Mexico.

Vol.II - Conflict:  Tom Callahan strikes it rich in the Alaska goldfield while Katrina struggles to remain alive in Mexico. Demonstrating her determination and faith, the reader is shown the resilience of this young woman who has grown beyond her years. Continuing through 1912 and the disastrous voyage of HMS Titanic, Conflict will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Vol. III - Reunion: It's 1917 and American has entered World War I. Tom and Katie's son, in an effort to prove his worth to his father, has joined what President Woodrow Wilson is calling  - the fight to make the world safe for democracy-. As the war ends, Tommy is selected for appointment to the Naval Academy, while his father is arrested and imprisoned in Ireland for gun running in the great Irish Civil War. Set against turbulent events in world history and filled with vivid scenes as well as tender emotions, Reunion takes the reader around the world.

Vol. IV - Prelude: Tom and Katrina Callahan continue their story in the years between the two world wars. Their three children have grown up and are making their way in a world that is propelling itself toward World War II. Tess has her heart set on a Hollywood movie career; PJ is a successful sheep rancher in New Zealand and Tommy is pursuing his career in the Marine Corps and learning not only about war, but about the perils of romance. When Tommy finds himself in England prior to WWII, Winston Churchill calls on him to examine the economic growth of the German nation as they secretly prepare for war.

Vol. V - Reprisal - Continuing the series into WWII as Marine Corps Lieutenant Colonel Thomas Callahan III faces personal tragedy during the Blitz in London as the war presents a very personal face. As he leaves his Embassy post to return to the United States, America joins Europe in the worldwide conflagration. For the second time in his young life, the son of Thomas and Katrina Callahan finds himself immersed in front-line battle, torn between his duty and the love of a beautiful woman who desires only his safety.

The conclusion of The Callahans will leave you enthralled as the children and grandchildren of a once-young Irish immigrant and his Norwegian bride leave their mark upon the world.
