Title: HOME WITH YOU

Author: Claire Cain

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Home With You:

I hadn’t seen Major Reese Flint in ten years—not since I was sixteen. Growing up, he was always kind to me despite our age difference and my role as the caretaker’s daughter. Our reunion forced me to see the gorgeous man he’d turned into. Reese was just as shocked by me, but evidently not in a good way since he then resolutely avoided me.   We’re forced back together when Reese’s mother hires me to help him recover from an injury since I still live in the garage apartment above the house I watched for him while he was deployed.   When Reese’s mom asks for more than that, I’m torn between my loyalty to the family who gave me so much during my childhood and my newfound feelings for Reese. Just when Reese stops resisting his interest in me and I have more than I could have hoped for, I discover I’m more at risk of losing everything than I could have imagined.

Exclusive Excerpt:

I groaned as I stood and lumbered into the kitchen where Erin promptly let out a little yelp. She pressed her hands to her heart and took a few deep breaths before laughing hysterically. Really. She doubled over, her long hair waterfalling to the ground, leaving me to admire the nearly bare expanse of her back but for the two small spaghetti straps of her tank top. When she finally turned upright, her face was red and her green eyes were wet with tears. “I’m sorry,” I said, chuckling long with her since the sound of laughter was irresistible. “No, I’m sorry. I—I didn’t expect to see you. I thought you were in bed. And your beard is, like, wow, so I didn’t realize it was you, even though of course it’s you.” She pressed her lips together. “Anyway, I’m sorry for laughing hysterically. It was that, or cry, and I do enough crying so laugh it was.” “I’ve been sleeping down here so I’m upright. Did you need something?” I asked, and as soon as her face fell, I realized I’d done it again. She set the rag in her hand on the counter and moved to go, but I grabbed her wrist. “Please. I don’t mean that in a brusque way. I’m not trying to get rid of you. I want to help you find what you need, if you need something,” I said, lowering my voice because whenever she was this close, which was rarely lately, I wanted to say things to only her. I wanted things between us that only we knew about. She stared down at my hand on her wrist, then back at my face, her chest rising and falling. “I, uh… I came to check and see how the kitchen was. Your mom doesn’t always clean up, so I came to make sure everything was put away so you wouldn’t wake up to a mess.” She looked down like she was embarrassed and gently pulled her arm away. “That’s very kind of you, Erin.” Her lashes fluttered when I said her name, and I wondered if she preferred her nickname. I’d have to try it out next time. “Not really. I’m saving myself from more work tomorrow.” “Tomorrow?” I asked, stepping closer to her because apparently my body wanted more of her proximity. “I’ll be here to make you breakfast. I mean, if that’s ok, of course,” she said, red rising to her cheeks. “I’d like nothing more,” I said, catching her green eyes with mine to make sure she understood my sincerity. I was done fumbling around and failing to communicate with her. I’d bungled things between us enough already, and if my mother had obligated Erin to help me, I wasn’t going to make her feel unwanted. She returned my stare a moment longer, her eyes moving between mine every few seconds. And then it happened. Then the best thing of my week happened. The month. Sure, maybe the year. I’d made the promotion list for lieutenant colonel and I was pleased about that, but this? This probably topped that. Her focus moved from one eye, to the other, and then dipped down and caressed my lips. I kid you not, I could practically feel the brush of her lashes against my mouth. Then, of course, she jerked away and plastered a smile on her face, bid me goodnight, and excused herself. But it’d happened.

About Claire Cain:

Claire Cain lives to eat and drink her way around the globe with her traveling soldier and two kids, but is perhaps even happier hunkered down at home in a pair of sweatpants and slippers using any free moment she has to read and cook. Or talk—she really likes to talk. She has become an expert at packing too many dishes in too few cabinets and making houses into homes from Utah to Germany and many places in between. She’s a proud Army wife and is frankly just really happy to be here.

Review for The Murder List: A Novel of Suspense by Hank Phillippi Ryan





Hardcover, 352 pages
Expected publication: August 20th 2019 by Forge

"An exhilarating thrill ride that keeps you turning pages.. Ryan deftly delivers a denouement as shocking as it is satisfying."--Liv Constantine, bestselling author of The Last Mrs. Parrish and The Last Time I Saw You

Law student Rachel North will tell you, without hesitation, what she knows to be true. She's smart, she's a hard worker, she does the right thing, she's successfully married to a faithful and devoted husband, a lion of Boston's defense bar, and her internship with the Boston DA's office is her ticket to a successful future.

Problem is--she's wrong.

And in this cat and mouse game--the battle for justice becomes a battle for survival.

The Murder List is a new standalone suspense novel in the tradition of Lisa Scottoline and B. A. Paris from award-winning author and reporter Hank Phillippi Ryan.

My Thoughts…

Oh My… what a suspense thriller.   Hank Phillippi Ryan has an amazing talent to take her readers on a twisted, turned upside down path that will surprise, shock, and pulled the reader in from the very beginning of the book until the very last page.    

Rachel North is a law student, married to defense lawyer Jack Kirkland.  Rachel gets a summer internship with Martha Gardinier, who has a hate-hate relationship with Jack.    That in itself should be enough for a great story but then add in the reason that Rachel is working with Martha and it gets so much more interesting.     

The Murder List could be considered a legal thriller but a lot of the story happens outside the courtroom.   It is more the story of three characters, who all could be considered a little shady, who work within the scopes of the law and how they revolve around each other and the system that they took an oath to uphold.    

**Thank you to Hank Phillippi Ryan and Tall Poppy Bloggers for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.   All thoughts are my own and no compensation was received in exchange for them.

Paperback Release for Feared by Lisa Scottoline

Today I am celebrating the paperback release of Feared by Lisa Scottoline.   I reviewed the Hard Cover of the book when it was release in 2018 and now you can get it in paperback.  

Paperback – August 13, 2019




In the new thriller from New York Times bestselling author Lisa Scottoline, Mary DiNunzio’s ruthless nemesis Nick Machiavelli is back...with a vengeance. 

When three men announce that they are suing the Rosato & DiNunzio law firm for reverse sex discrimination—claiming that they were not hired because they were men—Mary DiNunzio and Bennie Rosato are outraged. To make matters worse, their one male employee, John Foxman, intends to resign, claiming that there is some truth to this case.

The plaintiffs’ lawyer is Nick Machiavelli, who has already lost to Mary once and is now back with a vengeance —determined not to not only win, but destroy the firm. It soon becomes clear that Machiavelli will do anything in his power to achieve his end…even after the case turns deadly. The stakes have never been higher for Mary and her associates as they try to keep Machiavelli at bay, solve a murder, and save the law firm they love…or they could lose everything they’ve worked for. Told with Scottoline's trademark gift for twists, turns, heart, and humanity, this latest thriller asks the question: Is it better to be loved, or feared...

Feared, the sixth entry in the acclaimed Rosato & DiNunzio series, expertly explores what happens when we are tempted to give in to our own inner darkness. 

My Thoughts…

Feared is an amazing legal thriller.  It is book #6 of the series but can easily be read without reading the rest of the books.     As with most standalone series, reading them in order gives the reader more background to the story and the character but this book in wonderful on its own.
In Feared we find the women of the law firm going against Nick Machiavelli.   He holds a grudge against Rosato & DiNunzio after losing to them in a past case.    The case is a reverse sex discrimination case, three men are accusing Rosato & DiNunzio of not hiring them because they were men and the law firm is all women.     Mary and Bennie along with the rest of their law firm stay strong, work together, and figure out how to fight fire with fire.   From the beginning there is no doubt that the women will win, the women will stay strong and figure out how to save their jobs and their lives.  

In this book, we get an inside look at the home lives of the women.    They head home to get dirt on Nick since he was from a family in the neighborhood.  I loved seeing how these strong Italian families get together, protect each other, and fight for themselves.    I liked seeing how their families come first, religion holds a strong place in their lives, and how family included all those who live in the neighborhood.    

Lisa Scottoline is a must-read author, this series is one of my favorites, and I will always recommend everyone read them.

Review for Call Her Mine by Melissa Foster with a Giveaway


NEW RELEASE........
Fall in love in Harmony Pointe, where hearts are lost, found, and sometimes misplaced…and everyone get a happy ever after. 

If a woman can’t find love in the quaint town of Harmony Pointe, it’s sure to find them—whether they’re looking for it or not. Here, the remaining single Dalton siblings are about to discover that they’re next in line to get swept away by love. A sweet and sexy spin-off of Melissa’s beloved Sugar Lake series.

Ben Dalton has always been honest, except where his heart is concerned. He’s been in love with his best friend—saucy, smart-mouthed Aurelia Stark—forever. But Ben’s a planner, and timing has never been on his side. When he finally decides to make his move, Aurelia beats him to the punch with a move of her own—to a different town.

Aurelia loves her new life in the charming town of Harmony Pointe. She has a great apartment and her very own bookstore, and best of all, the sinfully hot, commitment-phobic friend she’s crushed on for years is no longer just around the corner. Maybe she’ll finally be able to leave her unrequited love behind and move on.

But when a baby is left on Ben’s front porch—a baby that is presumably his—Aurelia is there for him. Neither one knows the first thing about babies, but how hard can it be? Ben and Aurelia are catapulted into a world of love, laughter, and tracking down the baby mama, and it might even add up to a very happily ever after . . . just not one either of them expects.

My Thoughts…

Call Her Mine is the first book in the Harmony Pointe Series.   Some of the characters are familiar from the Sugar Lake Series but it is not necessary to read any other book before this one.     Call Her Mine is the story of Ben and his best friend Aurelia.    They both date other people but are drawn so much to each other that everyone except them knows that they are meant to be together.  

There were times that I didn’t really love Ben.   He called the baby “it” which drove me crazy.   IT is a baby, a real live being.  Yet, he stepped up, did what he had to do to keep the baby safe and happy.  Very quickly you could see that he loved Baby B.     He didn’t use her to keep Aurelia around, he didn’t push her off on anyone else to take care of.  He changed his life, his routine, and his ways to keep his daughter happy, safe, and loved.     Luckily, Aurelia felt the same way about both Baby B and Ben.  


I look forward to more from Harmony Pointe.   There are so many wonderful secondary characters that I am curious about.      I’d recommend picking up Call Her Mine ASAP and meeting the wonderful characters that reside in Harmony Pointe.
