A Standalone Romantic Comedy

UNTAMABLE-customdesign-AUG2017-smallpreview

Emery Matheson knows p*ssies. Cats, that is. As the star of a reality show called The P*ssy Tamer, it’s his job to fix extreme feline behavioral issues.
When he hears about his next project—a lonely cat hoarder named Estelle—he expects a little old widow, not the blond bombshell who opens the door.
With a 100 percent success rate, Emery has never had trouble finishing a job. But just a few hours into the first day of filming and one thing is clear—Estelle and her band of misfit p*ssies will give him a run for his money… and his heart.

My Review:
5 out of 5 stars

Oh my goodness, I absolutely loved this book. This was such a unique idea for a story and Jamie made it work really well. I was so invested in the characters and had a hard time putting the book down to do other things.

Emery was an amazing character. He was so kind and loyal. The sacrifices he made for his father just made my heart melt. Estelle was an amazing character as well. I loved that she wasn’t ashamed of who she was and never apologized for it. She was so real and I loved that about her. Estelle and Emery had an amazing connection together.

I also enjoyed getting to know all of the cats in this story along with their quirks. Peter was definitely my favorite, no contest. His incident with the toy had me laughing until I had tears streaming down my face.

If you want a heartwarming, funny story, you should most definitely check this one out.

Falling for Fall Tag

fallingforfall

I saw this tag over on Britt’s blog, Alternatively Speaking, and just had to do it!  I absolutely love fall and this seemed like the perfect post to put up on the first day of October.  Don’t you think?  😉

This tag is brand new, created by Megan Anne from Love Megan Anne. You can read her post, the original post, here.

Let’s get on to the questions, shall we?

  1. What is your favorite Fall scent?
    My favorite fall scent hands down is apple cinnamon.  Oh my goodness, just the thought of it is enough to send me into a little pile of mush.  I’m a sucker for all things apple cinnamon.  ❤
  2. Do you prefer apple stuff or pumpkin stuff?
    Apple definitely.  I was a big pumpkin fan when I was little, but as I got older, I just didn’t care for it anymore.  I’m an apple girl now.
  3. What is one thing that you look forward to every single Fall?
    The first thing I look forward to is the cooler weather.  I can’t stand summer and being hot.  I’m always yearning for the days of cooler weather.  Other than that, it’s looking foward to all of the traditions that this time of year brings.
  4. How do you like to spend the more chilly/cloudy days in the Fall?
    I cuddle up in a blanket and read a book.  It’s the best way to spend a day!
  5. Which do you prefer: Halloween or Thanksgiving?
    This is a really hard choice.  I love Halloween because I have kids now and it is so much fun for them.  I love seeing them dress up and go trick-or-treating and having fun at all of the festivals that we go to.  But I also love Thanksgiving.  Not just for the food (but it’s a huge plus!), but because we get to spend some quality time together with our family.  If I had to choose one though, I’d probably go with Thanksgiving.
  6. What is one way you do to embrace the Fall season?
    I don’t think I really do anything specific to embrace the fall season.
  7. What photos would you like to get this Fall season?
    I would love to make it up to the mountains sometime soon so we can get pictures of the leaves changing.  It’s always a beautiful view up there.

  8. Favorite childhood memory from this season?
    Going up to the mountains to see the leaves changing.  We would go every year.
  9. What is your favorite trend (fashion/makeup/etc) so far this season?
    I’m not really into fashion or makeup or anything like that, but I love all of the different flavors of coffee that are offered during the fall season.
  10. Describe what the Fall weather really looks like where you live.
    Related image
    This is what the mountains near where I live look like in the fall.  This is up on the parkway in the North Carolina mountains.  Isn’t it beautiful?  So many different bright colors.  We have temperatures in the low to mid 70’s and it drops down into the 60’s as winter approaches.

 

I tag:
Paige from Books and Belle
Megs from Between the Pages
and anyone else who would like to do this tag!

Here are the questions on their own if you would like to complete this tag yourself.

  1. What is your favorite Fall scent?
  2. Do you prefer apple stuff or pumpkin stuff?
  3. What is one thing that you look forward to every single Fall?
  4. How do you like to spend the more chilly/cloudy days in the Fall?
  5. Which do you prefer: Halloween or Thanksgiving? 
  6. What is one way you do to embrace the Fall season? 
  7. What photos would you like to get this Fall season?
  8. Favorite childhood memory from this season? 
  9. What is your favorite trend (fashion/makeup/etc) so far this season? 
  10. Describe what the Fall weather really looks like where you live.

OFF THE BLOG

This week has been pretty stressful.

My husband’s car has a leak in the radiator so we’ve been having to share my van all week.  Yeah.  Imagine trying to get him back and forth to work, me and my two kids back and forth to school, and me to work in one vehicle.  Not fun.  Thankfully my dad is going to pay to have it fixed, so we should be back to a two vehicle household sometime this week.

I had my doctor’s appointment on Friday.  I don’t have health insurance so I’m limited on the doctor’s that will see me.  The doctor I go to has never really given me any help or answers about my health problems and this one was no different.  She dismissed my concerns and I’m not any better off than I was before my appointment.  I’m just going to have to take the best care of myself that I can and hope that whatever is wrong with me doesn’t kill me.  😦  That’s a really scary feeling.

I’ve been trying to work ahead in my online class and over the last couple of days I’ve turned in all my assignments up until the end of October, so I’ve got a pretty good lead going there. In about a week I’ll be starting two new classes so I want to make sure I have as much work finished as possible so it isn’t so overwhelming when my new classes start.  I can’t believe I’m already halfway through my first semester of college.  I’ll be graduating before I know it!  🙂

Chick-Fil-A was hosting a rock painting party for the kids the other day, so I took Chris and Logan.  That was their first time painting a rock so they had a lot of fun with it.  After they were finished, the employees gave out coupons for a free kids meal.  Chris and Logan went ahead and redeemed theirs right then.  😉  They love Chick-Fil-A.

Synopsis

The Winter Market in the French Quarter is in full swing, but murder isn’t taking a holiday in the latest from the New York Times bestselling author of Parchment and Old Lace

The holidays are a busy time for scrapbook shop owner Carmela Bertrand—but not so hectic that she doesn’t have time to enjoy browsing the booths at the Winter Market with her best friend Ava. The last thing the ladies expect to see is a lurching man stabbed by a serving fork, dying in front of them.

The victim is loathed restaurant critic Martin Lash, who posted his scathing reviews on the Glutton for Punishment website. And the prime suspect is New Orleans restauranteur Quigg Brevard—who was seen giving the critic a tongue-lashing minutes before someone stuck a fork in him. An old flame of Carmela, Quigg asks for her help, which does not please her current beau, Detective Edgar Babcock, to say the least.

Before her relationship is the next victim, Carmela needs to find a murderer who had no reservations about punishing the culinary curmudgeon…

Scrapbooking tips and recipes included!

My Review:
3 out of 5 stars

I have mixed feelings about this book.  The characters in this book just didn’t do it for me unfortunately.  I didn’t really care about them and felt that it was hard to connect with them.

However, the mystery in this book is what kept me reading.  It was really engaging and intriguing.  I had absolutely no idea who the killer was and was surprised when it was revealed.

About The Authors

Laura Childs is the New York Times bestselling author of the Tea Shop Mysteries, Scrapbook Mysteries, and Cackleberry Club Mysteries. In her previous life she was CEO/Creative Director of her own marketing firm and authored several screenplays. She is married to a professor of Chinese art history, loves to travel, rides horses, enjoys fund raising for various non-profits, and has two Chinese Shar-Pei dogs.

Laura specializes in cozy mysteries that have the pace of a thriller (a thrillzy!) Her three series are:

The Tea Shop Mysteries – set in the historic district of Charleston and featuring Theodosia Browning, owner of the Indigo Tea Shop. Theodosia is a savvy entrepreneur, and pet mom to service dog Earl Grey. She’s also an intelligent, focused amateur sleuth who doesn’t rely on coincidences or inept police work to solve crimes. This charming series is highly atmospheric and rife with the history and mystery that is Charleston.

The Scrapbooking Mysteries – a slightly edgier series that take place in New Orleans. The main character, Carmela, owns Memory Mine scrapbooking shop in the French Quarter and is forever getting into trouble with her friend, Ava, who owns the Juju Voodoo shop. New Orleans’ spooky above-ground cemeteries, jazz clubs, bayous, and Mardi Gras madness make their presence known here!

The Cackleberry Club Mysteries – set in Kindred, a fictional town in the Midwest. In a rehabbed Spur station, Suzanne, Toni, and Petra, three semi-desperate, forty-plus women have launched the Cackleberry Club. Eggs are the morning specialty here and this cozy cafe even offers a book nook and yarn shop. Business is good but murder could lead to the cafe’s undoing! This series offers recipes, knitting, cake decorating, and a dash of spirituality.

Title: Breaking the Rules of Revenge
Age Group: Young Adult

Book Description:
Mallory Jones is tired of being the girl who stays home and practices French horn while her identical twin, Blake, is crowned homecoming queen. So when she has the opportunity to pretend to be Blake, she takes it. At Camp Pine Ridge, she will spread her wings and emerge a butterfly. Or at least someone who finally gets kissed by a cute guy. That is, until bad boy Ben Iron Cloud shows up, ready to get revenge on Blake—aka Mallory.
If it weren’t for that infuriating girl, Ben wouldn’t even be at camp. Luckily, he now has six weeks to soak up some rays and get even with his nemesis. But the more time he spends with Blake, the more he realizes she’s nothing like the girl he thought she was—she’s kind and innocent and suddenly way too tempting. And soon enough, revenge is the last thing on his mind. Unfortunately, the girl he’s falling for is keeping a major secret…
Disclaimer: This book contains a super-hot bad boy out for revenge, all sorts of camp hijinks, and a girl who realized she’s been a butterfly all along.

OFF THE BLOG

It’s been two weeks since my last update post since I didn’t do a weekly wrap up last week.  I just haven’t felt very well lately and didn’t feel up to doing a post last week.  My health has been circling the drain lately and honestly, blogging and reading has been the last thing on my mind.  I go to the doctor on Friday so I’m hoping I’ll be able to get some answers and start feeling better.  Any prayers would be greatly appreciated.

Chris and Logan got their progress reports the other day and both of them made A’s and B’s, so that was great.  I’m really proud of them.

I turned in my first major project of the semester two weeks ago and I got a 105 on it!  I was so happy with that.  Now I’m working on my next project that’s due the middle of October.  It’s another project for a major grade so I’m hoping to do well on it also.
