It has been a while since I have read a book for Partners with Crime Tours. I have read only one other of Vincent’s books, The Disappearance of Grace, and it is one of those books which was perfect for the afternoon. I enjoyed it and probably would have enjoyed it more if I was able to read the rest in the series. Even though it is a stand alone there is still some back story I missed. If you want to read the whole review check it out HERE.

Welcome to day one of the Suddenly Sorceress feature on Cabin Goddess. First, everyone look around! Today is the first post on my new blog. It has been moved to a fast new server hosted by HOSTINGFORWRITERS.COM and totally hauled over and fixed by the owner and one of my best friends D Kai Wilson who is awesomeness incarnate and made it possible to post today’s review for author Erica Lucke Dean and Red Adept Publishing. Oh and there is a giveaway also, so don’t miss that! Anywho, welcome to the new blog!
Where To Katie with Love with its sudden twists and plot surprises left us, Suddenly Sorceress took it up and ran fast, lightening fast up to another level of awesome. Our leading lady Ivie McKie, a run of the mill kindergarten teacher is engaged to very “popular” chiropractor, Matthew Smith. A bit too popular it seems! After Ivie has a rather adventurous field trip experience, at the price of her Ralph Lauren Boots (see the Pinterest board below for an image), and her favorite
Amazon has launched its second pilot season where we get to watch and pick which shows will move on to a full season of production. You may remember me going on and on about “The Dome”, and I still need to talk about “Alpha House”, which truthfully was the one I kept checking back for this summer and fall. But this year? I think they hit more then a home run and I am stuck at four out of the five shows shows

* From the award-winning, bestselling author of Devil's Hand and Burning Cards comes a universe-spanning science fiction adventure. *
Seventeen year-old genius Zakari Sharp has never stood on the surface of a planet, never seen a sun-streaked sky. He lives on a corporate-owned mining facility at the edge of the solar system, with a mute alien for a guardian and brainwashed, muscle-bound ex-convicts for company. The day his father vanished was so long ago that Zak thought he would never hear from him again.
Zak was wrong.
Now, chased off-station by a cabal of mythical assassins, Zak and his best friend Liz embark on a harrowing journey across the galaxy, to find his father's hiding place and learn the universe-shaking discovery that hides with him. But their enemies will stop at nothing to steal the secret themselves.
Can a teenage boy change the fate of the universe? Or will a nanotech-wielding killer reach him first?
I have found another author whose books I will be reading all of. I already owned the book when the tour came up and you know me, I have no control when it comes to tours, I have an affliction… err addiction errr both. It keeps me on a schedule and I already owned it, so what the heck! Well, it paid off! SONG and SIGNAL knocked me off my feet. I am not sure what pantheon of gods of the
The Widow File is one of those books that was perfect for when I read it. I loved the story but it had enough issues for me that took place in the short 203 pages which I feel if fixed would have made it a stellar read instead of a good read I am giving it “I LIKED IT” more like a 3.5 star. I have read other books by the authors so my expectations were slanted on those. If you never have read any of her books you will

She is a highly trained sniper in an hyper elite special ops unit. Things were already a bit weird with her commanding officers coming up with odd and high-tech things for everyone to use during a mission. But for Kala, the world she knew,

In New York, Walt Lawson is about to lose his girlfriend Vanessa. In Los Angeles, Raymond and Mia James are about to lose their house. Within days, none of it will matter.
When Vanessa dies of the flu, Walt is devastated. But she isn’t the last. The virus quickly kills billions, reducing New York to an open grave and LA to a chaotic wilderness of violence and fires. As Raymond and Mia hole up in an abandoned mansion, where they learn to function without electricity, running water, or neighbors, Walt begins an existential walk to LA, where Vanessa had planned to move when she left him. He expects to die along the way.
Months later, a massive vessel appears above Santa Monica Bay. Walt is attacked by a crablike monstrosity in a mountain stream. The virus that ended humanity wasn’t created by humans. It was inflicted from outside. The colonists who sent it are ready to finish the job–and Earth’s survivors may be too few and too weak to resist.
Breakers starts out in Part 1 as a really good post-apocalyptic story, with compelling characters (Walt; Raymond and Mia) and their different tales going back and forth how they are surviving the

But will she lose him once he discovers her past? Or will his deadly secret, hidden in plain view, be their undoing?
Young-Adult fiction should be written so a young adult can read and relate. So many authors cram their books under the Young-Adult label when their target audience is actually people my age. Yes, label because YA is not a genre, it is and always was meant to be a suggested age range. Which is why I speak out against so many of the so-called young adult books. Hence when I find a Young Adult read, I am all over it like scales on a dragon Ariella Moon’s Spell Fire had me smiling from cover to finish, for the
