Review Tour: Sweet Pursuits by Pauline Wiles

About the Book

What’s the recipe for a second chance at love?

After six blissful years with scientist boyfriend Owen, Bella Beecham was convinced he was about to pop the question she’d been longing to hear. Instead, he accepted a prestigious job in California and left England without a backwards glance. Now, Owen’s back in the village of Saffron Sweeting, and appears to be more eligible than ever. Bella’s determined that the man of her dreams won’t slip through her fingers again.

But her plans to tone up, trim down, and tempt Owen back into her life prove bittersweet. Although Bella’s talent for baking wins her new friends, her tasty treats have a disconcerting tendency to sabotage her own intentions. And as her increasingly bold attempts to recapture Owen’s heart stumble, Bella must question whether she’s chasing a guy who wants to be caught.

A British romantic comedy featuring both familiar characters and fresh faces, Sweet Pursuits explores how a young woman seeking her soulmate must first learn to love herself.

Cover Reveal: Varsity by Lori Goldson

About the Book

Adrienne Jones was just another high school junior, eager to spend her days on the streets of Baltimore despite her mother’s objections after a stint in juvenile hall for marijuana possession the previous year. With no close friends or ties to her community, her closest ally is new teen mom, Mariah Warner, whom Adrienne has decided to help raise her child, much to her mother’s dismay. Not particularly interested in anything but her newest love interest, varsity football player Drew Houston, Adrienne and her group of friends were self-proclaimed outcasts. They weren't sought out for anything but jokes at their expense by the school’s elite, the athletes and cheerleaders. Ironically, they were okay with that. It means they all knew where they stood.

One day after a blood-boiling confrontation with her mother, Adrienne decides to show her mother up by trying out for the cheerleader squad, much to her own surprise. With the support of her boyfriend, Malkum Warner, she manages to make the squad, leading to a new-found sense of popularity. Drew has noticed her, she's been invited to parties, and Shakira is now interested in being friends. However, suddenly a series of horrific envy-induced events begin to unfold as Adrienne's relationship with Malkum, her mother, and Mariah all suffer as she is now accused of being a power hungry tyrant She watches her relationship fall apart in a whirlwind as Drew begins to pursue her, leaving her vulnerable and confused as to if it’s her status or actual personality that he’s interested in.

Then things begin to happen. Weird things. Things with no explanation. A night after cheer practice, some girls are missing and many boys from the football team are hysterical and fear-stricken. With no recall of any incidents, all eyes are on Adrienne has the newest member of the popular crew. Her former friends are wondering if her popularity is making her blind to what’s going on, while Adrienne is just hoping to make it through the day, regretting her new-found high school elitism and is vying for the days of being just another high school junior.

Book Blitz: A Date With Desire by Heather McGovern

About the Book

Nestled in the lush green mountains of North Carolina, the Honeywilde Inn will be a romantic’s dream getaway, if only the Bradley siblings can keep it running. It will take a combination of hard work, good luck, and the kind of love that dreams are made of . . .
 
Devlin Bradley knows Honeywilde Inn’s no-dating-guests policy is a sensible one, but when has he ever followed the rules? Sure, he’s been working to change his reputation as the rebellious Bradley brother and town troublemaker, but the captivating new guest from Atlanta is worth risking his family’s disapproval.
 
Anna Martel is going to relax—even if it kills her. The alternative is a spectacular breakdown, according to her therapist, and that’s something Anna would like to avoid. Taming her workaholic ways isn’t going to be easy with nothing to focus on, though—until she meets devilishly attractive Devlin. His slow, sexy smile is a temptation she can’t resist, even if she knows he’s nothing more than a distraction. Or is he?

Release Day: Holding Out For a Zero by Heather Wardell

About the Book

"I’m doing the right thing, not feeding myself. It’s the only thing I can do, so I will do it. Gloria can somehow have the energy I don’t take in, and it will help her stay alive."

Twenty years ago, fourteen-year-old Valerie rushed off for lunch with her boyfriend instead of properly putting away a packet of balloons, and her little brother choked to death on his third birthday. In response, Valerie locked down every aspect of her life so she could never lose control like that again, and she’s still doing that today.

So when her sister Gloria is found comatose after an apparently random attack, Valerie is desperate to do something, anything, to save her only remaining sibling. But as a financial controller for a "nothing bigger than a size six" fashion designer, she has no medical background and no idea of how to help. But she has to find a way.

Since Gloria has always wanted to be a size zero, Valerie hits on food as the answer: by eating less, she will lose the weight Gloria now can’t and somehow save her sister that way. But when "eating less" turns into a frantic starvation diet to reach size zero before Gloria dies, will Valerie’s self control save her sister or destroy her own life?

Author Bio
Monique Domovitch lives with her physician husband and their two dogs. They divide their time between their farm on the west coast, their home in Toronto and the Florida Keys. She started writing later in life, after retiring from her television career, “proving that one is never too late to follow one’s dreams,” as she points out. When she is not writing or traveling, she is an avid redecorator. Which might explain why we move so much,” she says, laughing. “Once a house has been re and re-done, it’s time to move on.” Monique is working on her ninth book, a sequel to Scar Tissue, tentatively titled Seeing Evil.
