 bestselling author Liliana Hart’s romantic suspense series, the
Gravediggers, with this thrilling game of cat and mouse between a member of the
Gravediggers and the brilliant woman hot on his heels.

Sometimes the dead do rise…

Dante Malcolm is a man of refined tastes. He was once a part of Britain’s Elite
Intelligence Force, but there was a reason he’d never been able to capture
Simon Locke, the notorious thief who always seemed to be one step ahead. That’s
because Dante and Simon were one and the same, until Dante’s double life
eventually caught up with him and now he belongs to the Gravediggers.

Eva Rothschild is a Detective Inspector with Interpol and is the one
responsible for catching MI-6’s most notorious agent in his final heist—except
the heist killed him. But something has never felt right about his death, and
it’s haunted her for months. It was too easy, and Dante Malcolm was too smart
to go down that way.

Dante might belong to the Gravediggers in body, but his heart and soul will
always belong to the next job. The rest of the team doesn’t know about his
alter ego because he made sure the information went missing from his file. So
when the job he’s always waited for seems like a possibility, he sneaks out of
the country like a thief in the night, only to run into the only woman who’s
ever been able to match him in wit—and passion—for the job. Except they’re
standing on opposite sides of the law—and only one of them can walk away with
the prize. 



My Review:
 This was a lovely change from the books I’ve been into lately.
The author certainly didn’t disappoint.
Dante is good at his job, the one thing he just couldn’t do
was catch Simon. Though, when your one and the same, it’s kind of hard to do
so. Until the last heist finally did him in and Dante was gone. But for Eva,
something just doesn’t see right. Yes, she caught him. Yes, he’s gone and cant
do another heist. But for a man like him, Eva can’t help but think……
Dante is now a gravedrigger. And no, his body isn’t all
messed up and creepy looking, he’s not a zombie. He’s still Dante….just now
things are a little different.  He has a boss who happens to be the only
person who knows of his double life. No one else is aware he had two
personalities. But right now he has a job he’s wanted come to light. Is going
out of the country, and back to a life he’s pretty darn good at. But what
happens when your run into her? The one person who could match you. Would she
go crazy? Would he? Would the romance spark up? Or will Dante just do his job
and that be the end of it? 
Well let me tell you this book doesn’t slow. You have twist
when you least expect it. You’ll remain on the edge of your seat until the very
last word. The author is defiantly one to watch out for!

My Review:
I love this book. However, this is one of those books that you have to read since its different for everyone. 

Anywho, I love the approach this book took and the way it went into detail to explain ways to get out of that overwhelmed feeling and take back control of your creativity. I can’t tell you how many times I have all these books on my TBR pile and just don’t want to read. Or when I’m working on new chapters of a story, or editing books for work, or anything that need the creative juices to flow. It just wouldn’t happen and let me tell you that feeling stinks. I have hit the burnout points more than once and it never gets easier. 

But now, after reading this lovely gem, you can find a way to prevent the burnouts and get yourself back. Since the author has been in this work a lot time you can tell what you’re reading is the real deal and she helps ease you back on track with tips that really work. I tried a few of them right off the bat and after a while I could tell things were changing. Now its not huge drastic changes in which you have so much time to be creative you have no idea what to do with all this time. Nope, its simple yet effective and anyone who is overwhelmed should really read this book.

Bestselling author of The Christmasuarus, Tom Fletcher, has written a brand new picture book perfect for bedtime, where a mischievous monster has invaded the pages of your child’s book!
This read-aloud, interactive picture book treat invites children to make magic happen page by page, tilting, spinning and shaking the book, and then seeing the funny results when each page is turned. A fantastic celebration of all the fun that can be had with a book, with a wonderful wind-down bedtime ending!

My Review: Beyond ecstatic to have received this gem, and it’s not just because the author is in my favorite band. (Okay maybe that’s part of it).

Anywho, this is a great short read with the kiddos. They can interact with the book and be surprise  at the turn of a page. You never know where where the monster could be. By the end of the book the kids are engaged and enjoy reading which is a huge plus for me. 

What else can I say? Overall it’s one of the best books I’ve found that the kids love. They’ve only wanted to find the monster for the past week.  It’s going to be tough to find something to entertain them.

The award-winning Catie Bloom is back! And she’s still got it all—a husband, a successful career, and she’s America’s #1 Domestic Goddess. Except, it’s a big fat lie. She can’t cook, she’s a slob, and her husband left her years ago. But she’s trying to leave the lies behind and become an honest woman. Too bad someone already knows her secrets…
Catie’s life comes crumbling down when she’s outed on national TV by a person she trusted. And in that instant, she loses everything—her job, her sister, and the man she loves, Sam Harding. So much for “the one.” When Catie needs Sam the most, he disappears…with his ex. Then two miracles happen: a new man steps into the picture, eager to help Catie, and a New York socialite hires her to do the one thing she’s truly talented at: interior design. The great news: the multimillion-dollar loft Catie’s designing will be featured in all the top design magazines. The bad news: Catie has to keep her involvement a secret.
As she tries to find a way back into the design world without revealing her secret project, Sam returns. And with him comes a twist she never saw coming.
Will Catie find her happily ever after, or will her past lies ruin her future forever?

Spell Book & ScandalJen McConnel
Publication date: October 31st 2017
Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult

Shelby King is tired of living in her sister’s shadow. Just because Christina is the most powerful caster in school doesn’t mean Shelby’s any good at magic; she’s a scribe, like her mom, and everyone expects her to write spells for her sister, the way her mom always has for her dad. But Shelby’s spells fail spectacularly, and by the time she’s a sophomore, Christina won’t touch them with a ten-foot-pole; their parents aren’t much better. Shelby is fed up, and she decides to show the world she doesn’t care if she isn’t as good as her stuck-up sister, or as talented as their powerful parents. In fact, she decides it’s time to break all the rules, magical and otherwise, and she starts sneaking out to meet Jeremiah Smallwood, the second-best caster in school at illegal pop-up spell battles around town. She may not be able to scribe for him, but she doesn’t mind letting him think that she could; Shelby’s been half in love with Miah as long as she can remember, but he’s never paid attention to her until now, and she’s not going to risk her chances worrying about a pesky thing like the truth. But when Christina rats her out to their parents, Shelby can’t control her anger, and words come pouring out of her that she can’t take back even if she wanted to, threatening Christina’s future…and Shelby’s own chances with Jeremiah. It’ll take more magic than Shelby’s ever dreamed of to set things right, but no scribe has that much magic…right?
