Title: His Small-Town Girl
Series: Sutter's Hollow #1
Author: Lacy Williams
Genre: Sweet Romance
Release Date: May 12, 2020
Cover Design: Covers & Cupcakes
She’s sweet and wholesome. And hiding something.
He’s back home, resurrecting old ghosts.
One of them is going to get hurt. 
Molly arrives in Sutter’s Hollow out of gas and out of options. The rundown ranch seems like a perfect place to hide. Except the man who owns it seems just as dangerous as what’s chasing her.
Cord’s mantra growing up? Get out of Sutter’s Hollow. Now he’s back in town, but only long enough to get rid of his grandma’s ball and chain—the ranch. He doesn’t need a complication like Molly, who reminds him of an injured baby bird. He’s no protector. So why can’t he tell her to get lost?
Lacy Williams wishes her writing career was more like what you see on Hallmark movies: dreamy brainstorming from a French chateau or a few minutes at the computer in a million-dollar New York City penthouse. In reality, she’s up before the sun, putting words on the page before her kids wake up for the day. Those early-morning and late-night writing sessions add up, and Lacy has published fifty books in almost a decade, first with a big five publisher and then as an indie author. When she needs to refill the well, you can find Lacy birdwatching, gardening, biking with the kiddos, or walking the dog.

Review for Cut and Run by Allison Brennan

Cut and Run (Lucy Kincaid #16)by  Allison Brennan 

publication: March 31st 2020 by Minotaur Books

New York Times bestseller Brennan's latest novel featuring FBI Agent Lucy Kincaid finds her searching for a missing child.

Three years ago, authorities assumed that the Albright family fled the country to avoid prosecution for embezzlement. But when their remains are discovered after a recent storm, the FBI is called in to investigate -- and find the youngest child, whose body wasn't found with the others. If the child is dead, why wasn't his body found with his family? If he's alive, where has he been for the last three years? As FBI Agent Lucy Kincaid and her partner Nate investigate the cold case, they receive surprisingly little help from the original investigators. With minimal forensic evidence and no witnesses, Lucy and Nate don't know if they'll be able to find justice for these tragic murders, but with one small clue--the timeline of the victims' last day--they recreate what might have happened to the family.

While Lucy is deep in her investigation, investigative reporter Maxine Revere arrives in San Antonio because of another case. The confessed killer of a family friend has recanted his statement, and now the family simply wants her to find the truth about what happened to Victoria -- Max's specialty. She hires Sean Rogan, a PI and Lucy's husband, to assist her. When Max learns that Victoria knew Lucy's victims, she connects a series of dots that lead to a deadly conspiracy. Lucy, Max, and Sean must work together again if they are to find justice for these two families ... and finally uncover the truth about what happened. As they dig deep into the world of corporate embezzlement, high-stakes gambling, and multi-million-dollar land investments, they realize that more than one person has secrets dark enough to kill for ... and that one of them is the next target.

My Thoughts…

A family who was thought to have run to Mexico to escape the law is found in a grave but they are missing one child.   Is that child alive?  Is that child in a different grave?    Cut and Run centers around the Albright family and their son Ricky.   The reader is taken on a roller coaster of twists, turns, upside downs, and drops while following the path that Allison Brennan wrote.   I anticipated what would happen next but many times I was way off the path.   I tried to guess, I tried to stay on the path, but that path just kept me guessing.    
The dynamics between Lucy, Max, and Sean was interesting.    They all had different styles of investigating and were working different cases but these cases wove together, keeping the characters intertwined, and the story flowing perfectly.   I liked seeing how they trusted or didn’t trust each other, how they shared what they found or didn’t share, and how they were able to put the clues together to solve their respective cases.  

I am a fan of Allison Brennan and cannot wait to read more of her Lucy Kincaid series.   I’d recommend picking up Cut and Run and enjoying a thriller of a story.

Release Blitz for Take Me Back by Kathryn Shay

Title: Take Me Back
Series: Hidden Cove Firefighters
Author: Kathryn Shay
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 23, 2020
Six years ago, Kate Cassidy broke Rafe Casella’s heart by abandoning him a few months before their wedding. Now she’s in town with the gut-wrenching news that she had his baby, in secret, and she wants Rafe back. She has to be kidding!
But Kate is deadly serious. She made the worst mistake of her life when she left Hidden Cove and she’s determined to fix it. She plans to reinstate herself in the fire department and raise her son in a loving family—one that includes his father.
A rollercoaster of emotion, devastating fires, a stalker targeting Kate and a sizzling attraction that never diminished, set the two of them on an irrevocable course to reunion. That is if they can all stay alive.
If you liked the face-paced events, breathtaking tenderness, uplifting messages of forgiveness, as well as on-the-edge-of-your-seat fire scenes, all characteristic of the Hidden Cove Fire Department Series, then you’ll love New York Times bestselling author Kathryn Shay’s ninth installment.

“What the hell are you doing here?” “Hello, Rafe.” Kate Cassidy’s voice was still husky; she used to turn him on with just its sound. He couldn’t swallow, as if cotton was stuck in his throat. He gripped the door handle. Finally, he was able to reiterate, “What do you want, Kate?” She straitened her shoulders. It was longer, now. “I came to explain some things.” After six years, she wanted to explain some things! “From where? I don’t even know where you ran to.” “Not far. Upstate.” Ludicrously, because she’d almost left him at the altar and he should be cursing her, he asked, “Did you get a job as a firefighter?” “No. Long story why.” She’d let her hair grow some, and light brown waves fell around her face past down her back. She’d also put on some weight, but there was still that same sadness in her eyes that she always carried with her. He shrugged away the observation. “Well, whatever you want with me, I don’t want to hear it.” “I want you back, Rafe.” An ugly laugh escaped him. “You gotta be kidding me?” “I’m not.” She reached out and grasped his arm. “It's true. I still love you.” As if he’d been burned, he viciously shook her off. “No.” Stepping back, he closed the door in her face, but stood there staring at it. In a few minutes, the bell rang again. He couldn’t stop himself from opening the door again. This time, she wasn’t alone. She held a little boy by the hand. It was a punch in gut. He tore his gaze away and the words just blurted out. “He should have been mine.” Kate held his gaze. “Look at him, Rafe.” He did. And noticed some things. The boy was probably about five. His hair was a bit curly, dark brown, with dark eyes. The curve of his mouth seemed familiar. And he stuck his hands in his pockets like…oh, my God, like Rafe always did. Realization slammed into him. “Oh, my God?” Kate said, “Go back in the car, honey.” “But you said—” “Just for a bit. Mommy has some private things to talk to about, then you can see him again.” When the boy trudged out of sight, she raised her chin. “He’s your son.” “You said when you left if you ever had a baby, you didn’t want two first responders as parents. That you couldn’t bear to have him end up alone like you did and risk him having a childhood like yours.” “I meant every word.” Again, he moved await because he didn’t want to grab her in anger. “You left out one little fact back then. That you were already pregnant.” “You wouldn’t have let me go if you knew.” “You’re right I wouldn’t.” His voice came out gruff. “I would have insisted we go through with the wedding. I’d have forced us to go to counseling, for as long as it took. Damn you, Kate, I would have protected you!” The last came out loud. The boy came running over. He must not have gotten into the car. “Mommy, why’s he yelling?” Immediately, Rafe squatted. “I shouldn’t have. It’s wrong to shout at people. I’m sorry.” He smiled. “What’s your name?” “Tomaso Rafael Casella.” He held her gaze. “After my father?” “Yes, and you.” Holding onto his mother’s legs, Tommy asked, “Are you my daddy?” “Did your mother say I was?” “Un-huh, after my other dad, Connor, died.” He took in a breath. “You married someone else?” “I’ll explain if you let us inside.” “Come on, Tommy.” He stood and led them inside. At the exact moment when two little guys rumbled down the stairs which led to the foyer. “We’re ready to go outside.” “Oh, dear Lord, you already have two boys. Mitch and Megan said you weren’t married. But…” She frowned. “I don’t understand.” “Let’s go to the back and I’ll explain.” They by-passed a big living room to the right and entered the kitchen. Kate had loved this old Victorian that he’d bought when he was twenty and fixed up the three lives. She stood behind a chair, frowning, as he addressed the kids. “Tommy, this is Mike and Mattie. I’d like you guys go in the family room to watch that movie you two wanted to see?” The boys scurried away. Tommy hesitated. Until one turned back. “Come on, Tommy, we got a great movie.” So, he went with them. It took excruciatingly long to get the boys settled in front of the TV. “We’ll talk at the table where we can see them.” The kitchen overlooked the family room. When Rafe served her mug, she’d blanked her face. “I have only one thing to say to you, Kate. Any future with me is impossible.” # Sweat soaked the shirt of Rafe’s uniform inside his turnout coat as he crawled along the duplex’s first floor. Burning timbers fell on each side of him and his group that followed. “Everybody okay?” His squad checked in. Brick said, “It’s hotter than hell in here, Cap.” Firefighters suffered some ill effects of the protective gear. It slowed them down and made movement harder. Which increased heat fatigue. “Yeah. You okay?” “Uh-huh.” “Sounds like you’re having trouble breathing.” The physiological effects of higher heart rate and higher core temperature restricted breathing. “The heat’s gettin’ to me.” “Me, too,” Lorelei Lane put in. “There’s the stairs,” Rafe told them after seeing a brief outline of them through the thermal camera. “I’ll take Brick and Lorelei with me.” Which wouldn’t incur as much exertion as climbing. “The rest of you check upstairs. Lieutenant, you’re in charge.” Bronson said, “Yes, sir.” Laborious minutes later, even for Rafe, they reached their destination, the first-floor bedroom in the back. “There’s not time to quiz you, Lane. Let’s just get to the beds.” In here, too, black smoke curled around them like fog as they continued their creep, feeling their way along the floor. Rafe, first in line, put his hands on one side of the bed. “A body.” Brick had gone to the opposite side. “Another one here.” “Can you get him alone?” “Does a bear shit in the woods?” His friend sounded offended. Rafe would chide him afterward. Rafe grunted as he picked up the woman. She was slight and he considered letting Lane carry her out but just then a bad feeling seized him. And he trusted his gut. “Follow me out, Brick. Lane, you take up the rear.” Crashing timbers and the sound of water slapping the flames had gotten louder back here. Rafe coughed. Conditions were worsening. They’d just reached the exit from the bedroom, when they heard five repeated short blasts of a horn above the cacophony. Into the radio, BC Peter Baker barked, “Evacuate now. Evacuate immediately.” “Everybody hear?” Rafe asked on their internal channel. He forced himself to stay calm. Bronson, Ruggero and Sullivan checked in with yeses. “We’re on our way down. No one up here.” “We need to move faster,” he called behind him. The acrid scents of burning wood had kicked up. He walked as fast as possible with the woman over his shoulder. They’d almost reached the exit when Lorelei shrieked, “Oh, my God, Cap, Brick just went down.” “Went down to his knees?” “No, he collapsed forward.” Rafe sounded his mayday alarm. A high-pitched screeching rent the air. In seconds, Beth relieved Rafe of the woman, and Murray scooped up the victim who’d gone forward with Brick. Rafe, his heart beating fast, snapped out, “I’ll get Brick under the arms. Ruggero take his legs.” It seemed to take forever before they got outside. Not only was Brick heavy but they were experiencing fatigue, now, too. “Get away from the house, quick Rafe,” Baker shouted as they carried their brother to safety. They were 30 feet away when the duplex exploded.

Unabridged Audiobook
Release date: 02-15-18

Publisher: Melissa Foster

Publisher's Summary

Fall in love at Bayside, where sandy beaches, good friends, and true love come together in the sweet small towns of Cape Cod.

Bayside Summers is a series of standalone steamy romance novels featuring alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They're fun, flirty, flawed, deeply emotional, always passionate, and easy to relate to. And of course, you'll see cameos from the Seaside Summers characters!

In Bayside Passions....

When Emery Andrews's best friend, Desiree, moves away, falls in love, and opens an inn all in one summer, she feels her absence like a missing limb. Until she visits over the holidays and meets sinfully hot Dean Masters, who's as easy on the eyes as he is to talk to. After returning home, what starts as a flurry of late-night flirtations quickly turns into a deep connection and unexpected friendship. Now, months later, Desiree offers Emery a job teaching yoga at the inn. Adventurous Emery jumps at the chance and heads for Wellfleet, Massachusetts, to reunite with her BFF and her new close friend, Dean.

After months of sharing their lives and their secrets over video chats and phone calls, Dean's ready to move things to the next level. The fact that Emery seems oblivious to the sparks between them and has recently put her foot down about dating friends just means he'll have to bide his time.

When Emery finds a naked man in her kitchen the first morning she's there, Dean doesn't hesitate to move her into his guest room. Maybe now, Emery will see what's right before her eyes - although that guy she's got a date with might be a problem.

My Thoughts…

Audiobook Review… I had never listened to an audiobook before I started listening to Melissa Foster’s Love in Bloom Series.  Now I cannot stop listening.   I’ve broadened my listening but BJ Harrison’s (narrator) is still my favorite.    He brings Melissa’s characters to life, brings feeling to the stories, and makes me feel what the characters are feeling.    I can hear the flirting, feel the fun, and enjoy the love that Emery and Dean share.  

Ebook Review…Back at my favorite book setting, Cape Cod.     This time Melissa Foster takes her readers to Bayside and we get to catch up with the Bayside crew.   Dean and Emery deserves to have their story told and I am so excited about it.    These two met last summer and have been keeping in touch through FaceTime, text, and phone calls.   They have been flirting, sexting, and sharing their lives for so long it seems that they have been together forever.   

I laughed often while reading Bayside Passions.    Between Violets craziness and Emery’s uncensored reactions I chuckled, giggled, and laughed out loud many times.    There were times I cringed at these same ladies and how unrestricted they were at times.    But I loved every word of it.   I also loved how the rest of the Bayside Crew accepted them as they were.    There was never judgment just 100% acceptance.  

Together Dean and Emery are opposites.   Dean is settled, living his life, and just doing his thing.    Enter Emery.   She blows his world apart.   Leaves her things all over his house, enters his every thought, and changes his life for the better.   The best thing is Dean also changes Emery’s life for the better.    He brings in some form of order, accepts her for all her quirks, and shows her what true love really is.  

I was so happy to be back with these characters.   It was wonderful to get to know Dean and Emery better and catch up with the other Bayside characters.   I cannot wait for more from this wonderful location and amazing characters.
