Audiobook Review for Blue Bloods Final Destiny by Stacy Eaton

 

Blue Bloods Final Destiny

My Blood Runs Blue, Book 5

By: Stacy Eaton

Narrated by: Alex Black

Length: 6 hrs and 2 mins

Release date: 08-20-20

 



Publisher's Summary

Julian Hutchinson walked away from it all: his job, his friends, and her. As Julian drives out west, he randomly stops at a roadside tavern and runs into some people from his past.

Lyssa Lakin helps her father around the tavern as she raises her 15-year-old daughter, Lorna. When Julian walks into the bar, Lyssa’s past crush on him hits full force, but even she can tell that he is far from ready to be involved with anyone.

As Julian and Lyssa grow their friendship, their past romance is rekindled. When Julian’s past comes back to haunt him and an old enemy shows up in town, Julian knows a showdown is imminent.

Will Julian be able to deal with his past and his enemy without destroying the new life he has created?

The gang is back for one final book where lines are drawn and quickly crossed, and Julian and Kristin will have to work together one last time to save people that they care about.

 

My Thoughts…

This is the final book in the My Blood Runs Blue series.   I have listened to all 5 books and loved each one of them.    The characters have become important to me and I have become invested in their stories.   Stacy Eaton wrote this final book to give Julian the story he needed and to tie up the story perfectly.  

Julian has needed to find himself for a little while now and in Blue Blood Final Destiny he manages to find himself, save Kristin, and reconnect with some of his history.   I enjoyed learning more about Julian, seeing him come to terms with some of his past, and figure out what would make him happy in the present and the future.  

While I am sad this series is over, I am thrilled that I got listen to Alex Black’s voice read me Stacy Eaton’s words.

Review for Nowhere Near Goodbye by Barbara Conrey

 

Nowhere Near Goodbye by  Barbara Conrey 

Kindle Edition, 251 pages

Published August 4th 2020 by Red Adept Publishing, LLC

 


A mother’s love vs. a doctor’s oath.


Oncologist Emma Blake has dedicated her life to finding a cure for a rare brain cancer. Twenty-five years ago, Emma’s childhood friend Kate died of glioblastoma, and Emma vowed to annihilate the deadly disease. Now, Kate’s father, Ned, is pushing her to work harder to fulfill that promise.

When Emma discovers she’s pregnant, she’s torn between the needs of her family and the demands of her work. While Ned pressures her to do the unthinkable, her husband, Tim, decorates the nursery. Unwilling to abandon her research, Emma attempts to keep both sides of her life in balance.

Emma knows she needs to reconcile her past with her present and walk the fine line between mother and physician. But Ned has a secret, and when Emma discovers what he’s been hiding, the foundation of her world cracks.

Nowhere Near Goodbye is a story of family, failure, and second chances

 

My Thoughts…  

What is more important?  Your family or your career?    For Emma Blake that is a very tough decision to make.   For the mom’s I know, there is no doubt that your family would come first.   I could understand her struggles and I felt bad for all that she was missing in her life while spending all her time working.   Her work is important.   She is doing trials to cure a disease that kills so many people.   I never thought that she should give up her work, but I feel like there should be a good balance between work and family.  

 Nowhere Near Goodbye is a tough story.    The story itself is heartbreaking and not everyone will enjoy reading it.   There is the difficult topics of childhood cancer, unwanted pregnancy, and divorce.    Barbara Conrey had a tough story to tell and did it wonderfully.     Emma is not a character that the reader will want to like but they will feel for her and the decisions she makes.

Paperback Release for The Sun Down Motel by Simone St. James

This book had me talking to anyone who would listen.   I loved the story, the setting, and everything else.   Now I can share that it is available in paperback.   Go get your own copy!   Simone St. James is wonderfully talented.


 The Sun Down Motel by  Simone St. James 

publication: February 18th 2020 by Berkley
The secrets lurking in a rundown roadside motel ensnare a young woman, just as they did her aunt thirty-five years before, in this new atmospheric suspense novel from the national bestselling and award-winning author of The Broken Girls.

Upstate NY, 1982. Every small town like Fell, New York, has a place like the Sun Down Motel. Some customers are from out of town, passing through on their way to someplace better. Some are locals, trying to hide their secrets. Viv Delaney works as the night clerk to pay for her move to New York City. But something isn't right at the Sun Down, and before long she's determined to uncover all of the secrets hidden…

My Thoughts…
It is only January of 2020 but this will certainly be in my list of top books of the year.    I could not get enough of The Sun Down Motel.    With each page, each character I met, each story that came together, I was pulled more and more into the story.   The ghosts and the visitors to The Sun Down Motel were all intriguing and kept me turning page after page.   I couldn’t wait to see how Simone St. James would pull the storylines together at the end of the book.

The dual timelines were written perfectly.   They told their own stories while overlapping just enough to not lose the reader's attention.    I enjoyed how the characters were portrayed in 1982 and those that were still around in the present were kept similar.   They kept their quirks, kept their attitudes, but showed how they grew up in the time that was between.   The storylines were easy to follow, quick to read, and had twists and turns that kept me guessing at what would happen next.   

The Sun Down Motel is a psychological thriller with a tad of paranormal sprinkled throughout the story.    The spooky setting, the creepy customers, and the interesting people of Fells all made this book a must-read.

Review for Reviving the Hawthorn Sisters by Emily Carpenter

 

Reviving the Hawthorn Sisters by  Emily Carpenter 

publication: October 20th 2020 by Lake Union Publishing


The bestselling author of Burying the Honeysuckle Girls returns to uncover a faith healer’s elusive and haunted past.


Dove Jarrod was a renowned evangelist and faith healer. Only her granddaughter, Eve Candler, knows that Dove was a con artist. In the eight years since Dove’s death, Eve has maintained Dove’s charitable foundation—and her lies. But just as a documentary team wraps up a shoot about the miracle worker, Eve is assaulted by a vengeful stranger intent on exposing what could be Dove’s darkest secret: murder…

Tuscaloosa, 1934: a wily young orphan escapes the psychiatric hospital where she was born. When she joins the itinerant inspirational duo the Hawthorn Sisters, the road ahead is one of stirring new possibilities. And with an obsessive predator on her trail, one of untold dangers. For a young girl to survive, desperate choices must be made.

Now, to protect her family, Eve will join forces with the investigative filmmaker and one of Dove’s friends, risking everything to unravel the truth behind the accusations against her grandmother. But will the truth set her free or set her world on fire?

 

My Thoughts…

A family with secrets, secrets that threaten to expose their grandmother as a fraud and derail the foundation that was started in her name.  Many families have secrets, but most are not as potentially harmful as what Eve knows and what she is threatened with.    As Eve works to unravel the mystery of Dove and to prove that murder was not part of Dove’s past, there are new secrets revealed, new relationships formed, and the threat of losing her life.  

I loved the mystery and intrigue in the story.    Following the clues, putting together the information, and trying to guess what will happen next kept me turning pages and staying up past my bedtime.    I loved Eve, she stood by her family even as her whole life in threatened.   As the story continued, I found that her strength, her sense of family, and her need for the truth made her a character that I was cheering for.   I was cheering for her to stay safe, to find out what had really happened to Dove, and to find a happy ending for herself.   

Reviving the Hawthorn Sisters is a book that I recommend picking up a copy of.   I’ve been told it is a follow-up to Emily Carpenter’s  Burying the Honeysuckle, but I have not read the first book and this one did not read as part of a series so I would say that the books do not have to be read in order.

Cover Reveal for Date Me Like You Mean It by R.S. Grey

 

R.S. Grey’s next standalone romcom, Date Me Like You Mean It, is coming out November 5th! Check it out and be sure to grab yours November 5th!

Title: Date Me Like You Mean It

Author: R.S. Grey

Genre: Rom-Com

Release Date: November 5th

About Dare Me Like You Mean It:

I’m good at hiding my feelings. Having to pretend I’m not in love with my best friend? Pfft. That’s child’s play. Here’s how I do it: I avert my eyes when he walks out of his room, shirtless in all his toned glory. I squash the butterflies that fill my stomach every time he slowly unfurls a dimpled smile. And, most importantly, I keep an arsenal of “personal massagers” in my bedside drawer. Wink. Not to brag, but Aiden Smith isn’t hard to resist if you’ve been doing it for as long as I have. In fact, we might have continued as best friends forever if not for the fact that I needed him to play the part of my fake boyfriend. Date me like you mean it, I told him. Nudge nudge. C’mon, just go along with a little lie, help a girl out, and then we can all return to life as we know it. Except he veered from the plan. He crossed the line. Flirting with me when no one else was around? Pinning me down and kissing me like that? Okay, how exactly is taking off my bra part of the ruse, Aiden?! I’d ask him about it if I could, but well…things got ugly and we’re not best friends anymore. In fact, we’re the exact opposite. Now, I have to play nice even though I want to crush his heart in the palm of my hand. Pretending not to love Aiden was the easy part. Pretending not to hate him? Well…I might need a little more practice.

Cover Reveal for Game Winning Goal by Kay Gordon

 

The final book in the beloved 425 Madison Ave is nearly here! Check out the amazing cover for GAME WINNING GOAL by Kay Gordon, a must-read sports romance!

Cheyenne

Life was good. I had a great job, amazing people surrounding me, season tickets to see my favorite hockey team play, and a cat that I could cuddle. Although it didn’t seem glamorous, I was happy. But when the shy, handsome, and somewhat awkward hockey player slid into my life, I realized that I could be happier. I wanted to be more than just content with life.

Kamden

I knew I wanted to be a hockey player from the moment I put on my first pair of skates. I played

hard for the Titans, proving that I belonged on the top line. But just when I finally made it, an injury took me out of the game. While feeling sorry for myself and waiting to heal, I met the bubbly, beautiful, and smart pediatrician who brought me to my knees. She made me see that there was more to life than scoring goals. A love of the game helps bring these two together and onto a path towards a different kind of love.

Cheyenne and Kamden’s road isn’t as smooth as ice, though. What happens when Kam’s recovery isn’t easy and his position on the team is threatened? Cheyenne has to figure out how to break down his defense and Kam has to realize that he might not always be the one to score the game-winning goal.

After all, 425 Madison is the perfect place to fall in love.

Review for The Memory of Butterflies by Grace Greene

 

The Memory of Butterflies by  Grace Greene 

 

Kindle Edition, 290 pages

Published September 5th 2017 by Lake Union Publishing

 

 


To keep devastating family secrets from being revealed, a young mother lies, but her secrets could end up destroying everything, and everyone, she loves. The Memory of Butterflies is a poignant story of family and forgiveness--of knowing when to let go and when to hold each other close.


Hannah Cooper's daughter is leaving for college soon. The change is bittersweet. A single mother since the age of eighteen, Hannah isn't eager to confront the pain of being alone, but she's determined not to let her own hang-ups keep Ellen from the future she deserves. As Ellen's high school graduation approaches, Hannah decides it's time to return to her roots in Cooper's Hollow along Virginia's beautiful and rustic Cub Creek.


With the help of longtime friend Roger Westray, Hannah devotes her energies to building a new house on the site of the old family home, destroyed in a fire more than a decade ago. But Hannah's entire adult life has revolved around one very big secret. And her new beginning comes with unanticipated risks that will cost her far more than she could have imagined--perhaps more than she can survive.


When a confrontation forces Hannah to expose her secret, the truth may destroy her beloved daughter. Hannah is prepared to sacrifice everything to protect her family, but can their lives and their bond withstand the seismic shift that's coming?

 

My Thoughts…

 

What a position Hannah is put herself in.   As a young girl, excited about going to college, makes some life-altering choices.    Hannah was put in adult positions before she was ready and made choices that she could not have imagined the outcomes for.    She takes all that is thrown at her and does the best she can until she must tell her daughter about her life.   She knows that telling about her past and the choices she made can change her daughter’s future. 

 

Whatever choices Hannah made and continue to make, no one can doubt her love for her daughter.   Ellen is her everything.   Every choice, every decision, everything Hannah has done is so that her daughter will be happy, successful, and loved.   I could feel my heartache as she wrestled with how much to tell her daughter knowing that what she has to say would change their relationship forever. 

 

The Memory of Butterflies is a heart-wrenching story of the love a mother has for her daughter and the lengths she will go to protect her.    The characters are not perfect, their circumstances difficult, but their love is strong and pure.

Title: Fireside Love

Author: S.L. Sterling

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Fireside Love:

Kristy I hated my job. I had no social life. Somehow I had become so predictable after my last relationship ended, that the cashier at the local food mart already had my favorite wine bagged and waiting for me behind the counter when I walked in on Friday afternoon. I needed to get away, from everything. So when my best friend, Addie, called up and offered me a FREE weekend getaway, how could I say no. Promises of a quiet weekend with a good book, warm fires, and flannel pajamas? Yes, please!   Austin It had been eighteen months. Eighteen months, since I had lost my wife in a car accident and learned that our marriage had been nothing but one big lie. I’d done nothing but work and mope around my sister’s house, so when she told me to take her cabin for the weekend. Time alone, surrounded by nature and the fresh cold mountain air was exactly what I’d been needing. However, my plans of being alone in the wilderness quickly vanished when I walked through the doors of the cabin and found my sister’s best friend drunk and half-naked on the floor of the very same cabin. I’d hidden my crush on her for years. Perhaps, not well enough. After all, Addie must have set this up. The weekend was about to get a lot more interesting.   From USA Today Bestselling Author S.L.

Exclusive Excerpt:

Dinner had been perfect, and after we ate, we cleaned up the area together. "They are having a huge campfire tonight down near the hotel. Did you want to go?" I asked, drying the last plate and putting it back in the cupboard. "No, I think I just want to stay in tonight. We can make smores over the stove and watch a movie." I let out a laugh. "We haven't done that since our teens." "Speak for yourself. I happen to make smores all the time that way," Kristy said, pulling a chocolate bar and bag of marshmallows from the bag on the counter and holding them up. "Okay, well, one thing I am sure of is that I am not letting you cook the marshmallows. I remember what happened when we were younger, and I shudder to think you do this at home alone." I said, taking the bag from her hand. "What?" she asked, looking up at me with innocent eyes. "Really? You have to ask? You almost burned the kitchen down, remember? The marshmallow caught on fire and you went bananas waving it in the air." "I was trying to put it out." She shrugged. I laughed. "I think you might have been the reason I became a firefighter." Kristy laughed at the memory. "Glad I could help, I guess, but seriously, it was frightening," she said, shrugging. "That is the exact reason I will take over cooking the marshmallows." She smiled innocently up at me and shrugged. "All right then, I'm in charge of the crackers and chocolate." "Perfect, they don't involve fire, so we are good." I said winking at her.

When Melina agrees to one date in return for a favor, they both quickly realize there’s something between them. But it’s going to take Zane a lot more than his fun-loving ways and easy charm to convince the good girl to give him a serious shot. This time, he’ll have to risk his heart.

Review for The Light in the Hallway by Amanda Prowse

 

The Light in the Hallway by  Amanda Prowse

 

Kindle Edition, 343 pages

Published November 11th 2019 by Lake Union Publishing

 


From the bestselling author of The Girl in the Corner comes the moving story of a man whose life is changed in an instant. How do you start again when you lose the only love you’ve ever known?


When Nick’s wife Kerry falls ill and dies, he realises for the first time how fragile his happiness has always been, and how much he’s been taking his good life and wonderful family for granted. Now, he suddenly finds himself navigating parenthood alone, unsure how to deal with his own grief, let alone that of his teenage son, Olly.

In the depths of his heartbreak, Nick must find a way to navigate life that pleases his son, his in-laws, his family and his friends—while honouring what Kerry meant to them all. But when it comes to his own emotions, Nick doesn’t know where to begin. Kerry was his childhood sweetheart—but was she really the only one who could ever make him happy?

And in the aftermath of tragedy, can Nick and his son find themselves again?

 

My Thoughts…

 

The Light in the Hallway is my first book by Amanda Prowse and I am blown away.    The emotions, the love, and the family ties had tears in my eyes, love in my heart, and leaving me wanting more.   A man, now a widow, is learning to navigate life without his high school love and having to raise a teenage son as he readies for college.    There is nothing easy about this and Nick struggles, has triumphs, and disappointments but never ever does he not love, support, and protect his son.  

 

I love the two timelines.  1992 is a time I am familiar with and the way Nick, Alex, and Eric play, fight, and grow up is so true to the time.   The flashbacks to the time before marriage, before real life, gave glimpses into the reason Nick is the man he has become.    The way he was raised by his hard-working father, his loving dad, and with love shapes him into the man, husband, and father he has become.    The friendship with Alex and Eric is still strong in the current timeline, the love and support has only grown stronger.

 

The Light in the Hallway is a story of hope, family dynamics, growing up, and second chances.

 

**I received this book as part of the Amazon Prime Reading program.   The review is entirely my own thoughts.
