Author Deborah Raney

Deborah Raney dreamed of writing a book since the summer she read Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House books and discovered that a Kansas farm girl could, indeed, grow up to be a writer. Her more than 25 books have garnered multiple industry awards including the RITA Award, HOLT Medallion, National Readers' Choice Award, Carol Award, Silver Angel from Excellence in Media, and have twice been Christy Award finalists. Her first novel, A Vow to Cherish, shed light on the ravages of Alzheimer's disease. The novel inspired the highly acclaimed World Wide Pictures film of the same title and continues to be a tool for Alzheimer's families and caregivers. Deborah is on faculty for several national writers' conferences and serves on the executive board of the 2700-member American Christian Fiction Writers organization. She and her husband, Ken Raney, recently traded small-town life in Kansas––the setting of many of Deb's novels––for life in the (relatively) big city of Wichita. They have four children and five precious grandchildren who all live much too far away. Visit Deb on the Web at www.deborahraney.com.

Present Day, Missouri
 
Home to Chicory Lane is about Audrey Whitman, her husband Grant and their five grown children. Audrey had dreamed of turning their three-story home into a Bed & Breakfast and now that the kids have all left home she is finally seeing her dream come true. Her B&B is complete and her first guests are pouring in. But it's soon realized that Audrey's B&B is so much more than a place for weary travelers to lay their heads.
 
This is a book that really draws you into the story and into the lives of each character. I loved Audrey, Grant and all of their kids and extended family. The fact that Deborah Raney used a B&B as the setting was perfect for this story. The Whitman's are a down home family in a small town setting. I believe anyone can relate to the story. The characters dealt with issues that families have to cope with each and every day and the guests of the B&B are like extended family and add a lot to the story. I was, honestly, drawn in from the very first page and I hated to see it end. And, I have to admit, it's not often I read a book that I don't want to end. This is good, clean fiction that the entire family will enjoy reading. I am very much looking forward to the next book in the series and I highly recommend reading Home to Chicory Lane so you can kick off what, I think, will be a great series!

Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for my honest review and no monetary compensation was received.


My Rating:

  • Author: Joy Avery
  • Release Date: August 2, 2014
  • Genre: Contemporary Romance
 
 
Book Description:
 

After learning her boss has scheduled a mandatory team-building excursion, financial planner Nona Rogers panics. What does she know about camping? Nada. Zilch. Heck, she doesn’t even like picnics. And the thought of sleeping amid bugs and wild animals knots her stomach.
No way can she risk looking like an idiot in front of her colleagues. Taking proactive measures, she acquires the services of a guide to give her a crash-course in camping. Seven days living off the land. How hard could it be? Nona swallows those words when she meets the sexy titan tasked with leading her into the wild. Getting mauled by a bear quickly becomes the least of her worries.
Mason Tinsdale’s first love has always been oil rigging. But a horrible accident has him doubting the job—more importantly, himself. Seven days in the Indigo Falls wilderness is just what he needs to sort out his thoughts. Then he meets Nona Rogers. He’s convinced the gorgeous woman is going to be far more trouble than she’s worth. And he’s right. However, there’s something about the feisty vixen that makes her irresistible.
Two guarded hearts. Seven days alone. An attraction that can’t be denied.

Author Joy Avery

Joy Avery is a North Carolina native with a passion for penning contemporary romances. When she's not writing, she enjoys reading, cake decorating, pretending to expertly play the piano, driving her husband insane, and playing with her sixteen-pound peek-a-poo and hundred-pound Rottweiler.

There’s plenty of emotion in a Joy Avery romance. Sometimes there are obstacles and hurdles in love, and she enjoys showing this in her novels. Her stories guide readers along the rutted roads of love, delivering them to a gratifying happily ever after.

Romance is Joy’s genre of choice, because she enjoys the experience of characters overcoming the barriers that have held them back from finding true love. Plus, she loves happily ever afters.

HIS UNTIL SUNRISE is Joy’s second novel. Her first novel, SMOKE IN THE CITI, garnered attention for having well-developed and believable characters, as well as refreshing humor. She is currently working on Book 2 of her Indigo Falls series.

AdamAuthor Adam Glendon Sidwell:

In between books, Adam Glendon Sidwell uses the power of computers to make monsters, robots and zombies come to life for blockbuster movies such as Pirates of the Caribbean, King Kong, Pacific Rim, Transformers and Tron. After spending countless hours in front of a keyboard meticulously adjusting tentacles, calibrating hydraulics, and brushing monkey fur, he is delighted at the prospect of modifying his creations with the flick of a few deftly placed adjectives. He really enjoyed writing 81,854 less words in his new picture book FETCH than he wrote in his first EVERTASTER novel, and hopes that you will like the ones he picked. Besides, FETCH has pictures.

Adam has also been rightfully accused of writing the upcoming novel CHUM.

Fetch is about a dog named Fetch that has the courage to leave what is "normal" and soar to great heights in an airplane and discover what lies in a distant world. I loved this book and I think young children will love it also. It teaches children about faithfulness, loyalty and undying love. The love between a child and his dog. The full-page illustrations are simply amazing and will draw any child's attention and keep them engaged in the story. It's a short story but beautifully done and small children will want to read it again and again. I recommend this book very highly to anyone with a small child!

“Simple, yet engaging, storyline appeals to readers of all ages and the illustrations glue your eyes to pages!” –Doodles

“The art work enchanted, enthralled, and grabbed me in ways paintings can and often do.” –Kindle Customer

Thirty-Two Going on Spinster by Becky Monson


Julia Dorning is a spinster, or at least on the road to becoming one. She has no social life, hates her job, and lives in her parent’s basement with her cat, Charlie.
With the arrival of Jared Moody, the new (SnifferWalkBooks) SnifferWalkBooks) ire at work, Julia’s mundane life is suddenly turned upside down. Her instant (and totally ridiculous) crush on the new guy causes Julia to finally make some long-overdue changes, in hopes to find a life that includes more than baking and hanging out with Charlie.
But when the biggest and most unexpected change comes, will the new and improved Julia be able to overcome it? Or will she go back to her spinster ways?
