Happy Wednesday, fellow reading addicts!

It doesn’t seem like it should be Wednesday already, but it most definitely is. I’ve had a busy week of catching up with housework, steam cleaning and meeting with contractors to get some stuff fixed at my house. I have some really old solar panels (they’re probably my age or older – so almost 41) that were installed at the end of the 70s or in 80-81. Unfortunately, no one in town is able to repair what’s wrong with it so only half of it works and the plexiglass on the panels is so old, all it will take is a hailstone from the wrong direction and POOF broken roof. And since I have to replace my roof already, figured it was cheaper to just make it all go at once.

Problem is, it will take 3 contractors to make it happen.

Homeownership is never easy.

At least I’ll have some great books to keep me occupied when the work starts. And we have a bunch of really great books for you this week. Check them out below! And don’t forget – leave reviews when you have a few minutes. They really do help authors!

Enjoy and happy reading!

Christmas Crazy in July

Christmas only comes once a year…
Except when it doesn’t.

No ugly sweater contests…
No sleigh bells ringing…
All isn’t Merry & Bright…
Bah humbug is my new normal. Or at least it was until someone came up with the “super” idea of having a post-pandemic Christmas in July.
How is Santa gonna come on a sleigh with his way too hot santa suit and deliver presents to everyone in July? Especially a July that’s going to leave its mark in the record books for hottest summer…EVER!
Now, I can’t even get a parking space in the shopping mall!
Since Christmas was cancelled all over the world last December, EVERYONE, and I mean everyone, is going Christmas Crazy!
I wasn’t going to do it, I swore to myself, and my family, that I was going to pass it up. Until He came along. Then everything changed.

I don’t know why some people are so up in arms about Christmas in July. I love Christmas, no matter the season. Even if hot cocoa by the fireplace isn’t the coolest thing to do right now.
Does it really matter what time of year we celebrate the Lord’s birth? I say, let’s celebrate and have some fun while opening the world back up!
I’m just glad that no one looks twice at me when I say I’m from Corona, Ca anymore. I swear, couldn’t they come up with a better name? It’s bad enough that people think I come from a beer capital, which I don’t. And there isn’t a Del Mar anywhere near me, thank you very much.
My best friend, and canine companion Bella, and I were doing just fine. Enjoying a walk to the shopping center on a fine summer morning. Honestly, I was only out looking for a Christmas Hawaiian print shirt. When out of nowhere, I heard a scream and saw the backside of a woman flailing out of a dress shop to unceremoniously drop headfirst into a mud pile created by a broken sprinkler.
I mean, come on, who doesn’t know by now that you can’t let sprinklers stay broken in Southern California? Hello, drought anyone?

I think it’s time I Santa Up and help the pretty girl sputtering mud out of her mouth, if only she didn’t hate me.

This standalone Christmas in July book is for anyone who is ready to move past 2020 and loves snarky leading ladies, cute men who love to rescue women in need, and dogs. Yeah, dogs are awesome! Especially super cute Boston Terriers with lots of attitude.



They set sail from Norway, two swift-moving longships and their handpicked crews, following the route navigated by the legendary Leif Ericson. But for young shipmaster Nils Thorsson and his fellow Norsemen the real journey begins when they push on into the uncharted continent of Vinland.

There the explorers revel in the chance to penetrate a virgin land – until they trespass on the grounds of a primitive people who have seen enough of the light-hairs’ cruelty to believe they are too dangerous to ignore. In one swift dawn raid, they deal with the invaders by letting go a swarm of fiery arrows. Only three men from the sailing party escape: the intrepid Nils Thorsson, the hardened seaman Svenson, and an enigmatic native guide called Odin. Now, stranded in the wilderness with their one-eyed guide, Thomson and Svenson know that to survive they must master the ways of war, of the hunt – and of a proud and fearless people.

“A mythically powerful story of the earliest European exploration of North America. Runestone is Don Coldsmith’s finest work to date.” – Kathleen O’Neal Gear and W. Michael Gear, authors of Flight of The Hawk.

The Slab

Written in powerful prose as dangerous as its desert setting, The Slab is a true epic of horror and dark suspense.

A man who can’t remember his murders.

A woman snatched off the street, then set free only to be hunted down like an animal—until she becomes the hunter.

When these threads wind together, the result is unstoppable suspense and unforgettable horror. In the grim days following 9/11, three veterans of different wars are drawn together in one of the most remote, forbidding areas of the California desert. As serial killers ply their deadly trade and an ancient evil grows beneath desert sands, these three must discover the terrifying bond they share and learn to harness its power—before the darkness spreads and the world they know is gone forever.

Their trail of vengeance leads from Monaco to Texas to a showdown in the Gulf of Mexico, where Dane is taken prisoner by an opponent who intends to settle old hatreds long thought buried.
