Review Catch Up Marathon: Murder on the Moor by Julianna Deering


Bethany House; 336 pages; $15.99; Amazon
If you like reading Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christie mysteries, then I would recommend the Drew Fathering Mystery series by Julianna Deering.

Released earlier this year from Bethany House Publishing is the fifth installment in the series, titled Murder on the Moor. Once again the main character is the dashing Drew Farthering, who, along with his American wife Madeline, heads to Bloodworth Park Lodge in the town of Bunting's Nest at the request of an old friend. Several strange occurrences have occurred in the area, such as fires, property destruction, and sheep and cattle scattered. Then a dead body is found on the steps of the church.

Being a mystery buff, Drew takes it upon himself to unravel the murder, which isn't easy, as there are no suspects. Well, except for one person - his friend's new bride.

Book Tour & Giveaway: Revelations


Revelations
The Aria Knight Chronicles Book 2
By Alesha Escobar and Samantha Lafantasie
Genre: Urban Fantasy, Paranormal

Magic is dangerous, but secrets can kill...

Aria Knight sees a light at the end of the tunnel as she sets out to confront the powerful witch who turned her world upside down…her mother. She must decide if the witch, Clare, truly wants to help her, or drag her into a fate worse than death.


Darkness gathers around Aria and her friends as rioting and assassination plots break out in the streets of Miracle Falls. Her ally, Harry Storm, conceals the truth about his powers while trying to keep it together long enough to help, or else fall into an abyss of insanity. And Jacob Wolfe, the man she yearns for, has little time for romance as he’s stuck trying to prevent an all-out war on preternaturals.


Aria knows that she must do her part to keep the peace, but it's difficult when the conflict within her own family threatens to tear her down. In liberating her only sibling from a magical prison, she finds that she may have hastened the destruction of all sin eaters, including herself.


REVELATIONS is the second book of the Aria Knight Chronicles by USA Today bestselling author Samantha LaFantasie, and bestselling author of The Gray Tower Trilogy, Alesha Escobar.





Sin Eater
The Aria Knight Chronicles Book 1

Aria Knight has an unusual set of skills: she will hold back the hounds of Hell so you can fly toward the Pearly Gates, and she will wipe your slate clean so that you don't become karma's bitch...for a price.


A Sin Eater has to make a living in today's world somehow.



But when she's called in the dead of night to perform her rite for a recluse billionaire, she stumbles upon a murder scene, and the evidence points to her.

In an attempt to clear her name and uncover the true culprit, Aria is forced to team up with a private investigator who's possessed by three spirits, and a handsome wizard who would rather see all Sin Eaters like Aria go extinct.

Aria knows her job is never easy, but now it's become downright deadly.



SIN EATER is the first book of the Aria Knight Chronicles by USA Today bestselling author Samantha LaFantasie and Alesha Escobar, author of the bestselling Gray Tower Trilogy.






I’m a caffeine addict and chocoholic who enjoys reading and writing engaging stories, loveable (and not-so loveable) characters, and expressing my creativity daily. I write fantasy with intriguing characters, action-packed scenes, and always throw in a good dash of humor and romance.

Science Fiction and Fantasy are my favorite genres, but I also adore the classics (Shakespeare, Dante Alighieri, etc.) and I have a soft spot in my heart for Victorian poetry. You can geek out with me all-day every day over these.

Some of my favorite contemporary fantasy authors are George R.R. Martin, Robert Jordan (rest in peace), J.K. Rowling, Neil Gaiman, Jim Butcher (Dresden Files made me love Urban Fantasy), and Ilona Andrews among others. I enjoy movies and shows like Sleepy Hollow, Supernatural, Arrow, The Flash, The Avengers…there are too many to name!

I want to read more comics and graphic novels, please shoot a recommendation or two my way (I LOVE the Hellblazer comics, by the way).

Please don’t be a stranger–I want you to kick up your feet, sip your coffee (or tea) and join in on my weekly rants, discussions, and updates.

Cover Reveal: The Renaissance Club








T​he Renaissance Club
by Rachel Dacus

Publisher: Fiery Seas Publishing

Pub. Date: January​ 16,​ 2018

Genre: Time Travel Romance









What's the book about?

May Gold, college adjunct, often dreams about the subject of her master’s thesis - Gianlorenzo Bernini. In her fantasies she’s in his arms, the wildly adored partner of the man who invented the Baroque.

But in reality, May has just landed in Rome with her teaching colleagues and older boyfriend who is paying her way. She yearns to unleash her passion and creative spirit, and when the floor under the gilded dome of St Peter’s basilica rocks under her feet, she gets her chance. Walking through the veil that appears, she finds herself in the year 1624, staring straight into Bernini’s eyes. Their immediate and powerful attraction grows throughout May’s tour of Italy. And as she continues to meet her ethereal partner, even for brief snatches of time, her creativity and confidence blossom. All the doorways to happiness seem blocked for May-all except the shimmering doorway to Bernini’s world.

May has to choose: stay in her safe but stagnant existence, or take a risk. Will May’s adventure in time ruin her life or lead to a magical new one?


Book Spotlight: Touched By Death by T.L. Martin






Touched by Death
by T.L. Martin

Genre: New Adult Paranormal Romance

Date of Publication: September 1 2017

ISBN: 9780998395326

Number of pages: 362
Word Count: 105k

Cover Artist: The Killion Group, Inc







What's the book about?

What if Death was more tempting than you had ever imagined?

With Grams’s recent passing and a boyfriend who cares more about his next drink than her, Lou Adaire only wants to run. To start over somewhere new — maybe in a town where her family has history.

But when a storm sends Lou’s truck plunging into Tuttle Creek Lake, she discovers exactly what it’s like to fight for your life. To gasp for air only to have your lungs fill with icy water. To die.

What comes next changes everything.

Dark eyes. Consuming presence.

Death. As vague as a dream yet as intense as the lightning flashing above her still heart.

Everything about him calls out to her, tugging at her with the warm vibration of his pull. He’s supposed to take her; they both know it. She wants him to.

When she wakes in the hospital in a new town, she can’t forget what she saw… That impossible sensation of him breathing life back into her, a strong beat playing in her chest and a flutter running down her spine.

Trying to move on with her life in a foreign place is hard enough, but when he comes back for more — his burning touch against her skin, his consuming presence weaving in and out of her life, and his own scars running far deeper than hers — Lou begins to realize there’s more to Death, and to the sleepy Kansas town, than she ever expected to find.

Lou lived. But what if she’s not the only one in need of saving?

*Note to readers: This book contains some profanity, sex, and some scenes featuring child abuse.

Now available to buy on Amazon, Amazon UK, Amazon DE, Amazon CA, Amazon AU, and Barnes & Noble is the novel Just Off The Path by Weston Sullivan.


What's the book about?

Hansel never asked to be a hero. He never wanted to fall in love with Rapunzel, Queen of the East. He didn’t ask to be raised by Gothel the Wretch, and he certainly never wanted to be credited for her arrest. But more than any of that, Hansel never wanted to lie: but he did. He lied about everything. He thought that he was done with it all when he and his sister Gretel retreated into the woods to reclaim their land, but he should have known better.

Hansel needs to find a way to fix this, otherwise he will be responsible for Grimm’s destruction, or that is what he thinks. As Hansel isn’t the only liar in Grimm.
