Book Tour & Giveaway: Destiny's Series


Destiny's Plan
Destiny's Series Book 1
By Victoria Saccenti
Genre: Historical Romance

One empty bus seat. Two aching hearts. A future written by Fate…

When Raquelita Muro’s overbearing mother rips her and her little sister away from their beloved Papa, one tiny, rebellious corner of Raquelita’s heart is grateful that the bus is crowded, and the only seat left is out of Mama’s sight. Next to a handsome young man.

Matthew Buchanan’s beautiful traveling companion is more than something pretty to look at before he ships out for Viet Nam. Deep in her sad, whisky-colored eyes he glimpses a new dream to replace the ones he’s leaving behind. It breaks his heart to leave Raquelita in her tyrannical mother’s hands, but she gifts him with a token of love and a tender promise to exchange letters in secret.

But their first, shy “hello” has reached the ears of Fate. Fate is in the mood to see how far it can push two lonely hearts—to the brink of temptation, desperation, and despair—before they break. Perhaps beyond any hope of healing…






Destiny's Choice
Destiny's Series Book 2

No one evades Fate. Especially when the escape route is cracked and full of holes.

As a naïve young woman, Marité Muro nearly drowned in a maelstrom of confusing emotions stirred by two very different men. One whose tortured soul tugged at her heart, another whose scorching touch made her innocent body want…more.

Four years in a Spanish prep school gave her time to gain perspective, and now she’s come home to Florida knowing what she wants. The one man she’s never been able to forget, and she’s ready to prove their age difference is no obstacle.

Viet Nam left scars on Brian MacKay, some visible, some invisible—and infinitely more dangerous. His war buddy’s little sister has ripened into a tempting, irresistible woman, but she is forbidden fruit. Yet she challenges his resolve until, in a moment of weakness, his demons slip free.

Marité isn’t sure why the man who held her closer than skin is suddenly holding her at arm’s length, but she isn’t afraid to fight for what she wants. Even when someone returns from the past who could destroy everything. Her home. Her family. And Brian’s love.




Destiny's Way
Destiny's Series Book 3

Destiny can show the way home...if it can navigate the shadows of Fate. 

Brian MacKay’s love for Marité Muro burns with the heat of an eternal flame. But when he catches her cousin, Michael, forcing an unwanted kiss upon her, Brian’s jealousy comes dangerously close to flaring out of control. 

In a moment of despair, he packs his bags and boards a plane for Round Rock, convinced Marité will be better off with anyone else. Someone younger. Someone who isn’t dragging around a crippling load of baggage—and PTSD-fueled demons.

Anger tears at Marité’s heart as she flees to her Abuela’s home. Anger at Brian for abandoning her so easily. At Michael for trying to reignite their past infatuation. Mostly, anger at herself for realizing too late that it’s past time to grow up, take responsibility for her own part in the debacle, and fight for the only man she’ll ever love.

But Fate has a few more tricks to play before Brian and Marité find the strength to reconcile. Some that haunt Brian’s war-torn mind. Another threatening from Michael’s dangerous ambitions. And one tiny, fragile miracle growing under Marité’s heart, with the power to heal their past and seal their future. If it lives long enough to draw its first breath…

Book Tour & Giveaway: Jolie Gentil Cozy Mysteries


Jolie and Scoobie High School Misadventures
Jolie Gentil Cozy Mysteries #0.5
by Elaine Orr
Genre: Cozy Mystery

When Jolie Gentil’s parents leave her with Aunt Madge for her junior year so they can ‘work things out’ in their marriage, she’s angry. She knows no one at Ocean Alley High School. Some kids snub her, but she makes friends with the irreverent Scoobie. He’s quirky and fun, but he’s skipped school and smoked pot in the past, so people avoid him. Jolie learns how to shoot a squirt gun from under the boardwalk and tries not to flunk geometry. She also learns that the family she babysits for has a secret, one that puts Jolie in danger. You’ve met Jolie and Scoobie as crime-solving adults. Check out their high school friendship. Same humor, different challenges. Plus a couple of hints about why Jolie wants to get to the bottom of murders when she’s all grown up.



Appraisal For Murder
Jolie Gentil Cozy Mysteries #1

Jolie Gentil moves to Great Aunt Madge’s Jersey shore B&B, taking her cat Jazz, and joining Madge's pair of prune-eating dogs. It's not a retreat from her embezzling ex-husband, just a smart change. Jolie rekindles friendships, dodges a low-level wise guy, and tries to figure out her new life. She hasn't seen her high school classmates in ten years, and they weren't all buds. Why care if a couple of them are murder suspects? Because finding a dead body when you're appraising a house grabs your attention.

Jolie balances fear of a smart-mouth wise guy with a belief that her friends are innocent. Her murder suspects include one accused's ex-wife and beneficiaries of the dead woman's will. Jolie keeps searching, but will someone's plans leave her alive to find the truth?

**Only .99 cents!!**


Rekindling Motives
Jolie Gentil Cozy Mysteries #2

When Jolie Gentil gets tapped for some appraisal work at her tenth high school reunion she does not expect to find the skeleton of Richard Tillotson in an antique attic wardrobe in the vacant house. He vanished just after his sister married his business partner in 1929. Jolie sees a link to the Tillotson-Fisher family's Prohibition era business and works with friends Scoobie and Ramona to gather clues from old photo albums and ledgers. The albums lead to Mary Doris Milner, Richard's girlfriend, who has fond memories of him and is certain of who murdered him. But, she couldn't prove it then and he's long dead, too.

The present day murder of Mary Doris tells Jolie and Scoobie they are on the right track. Did the secret she kept all these years finally kill her, and will solving Mary Doris' murder lead to a culprit in a decades-old crime? Between running the food pantry at Christmas and escaping a burning building, Jolie wants to figure out who the modern killer is before someone else gets hurt.


When the Carny Comes To Town
Jolie Gentil Cozy Mysteries #3


Though she never liked the idea of sitting on the plank above the dunk tank for the food pantry's carnival fundraiser, Jolie never dreamed what Scoobie saw that day would leave him battling for his life. Scoobie's ex-con mother shows up and there's a murder to add to the mix. Soon Jolie is doing more than appraising real estate. Even that is complicated by home burglars. She grudgingly seeks help from her nemesis, reporter George Winters, and tries to stay ahead of a kidnapper and murderer so she can take charge of her world again. Can she keep her friends safe? Will Scoobie recover enough to plan another silly fundraiser?



Any Port in a Storm
Jolie Gentil Cozy Mysteries #4

Jolie Gentil and friends are putting the finishing touches on the Talk Like a Pirate Day fundraiser for the food pantry and trying to figure out who's breaking into some of the houses Jolie appraises. When she realizes a new face in town is leading high school kids into trouble, Jolie's mad and lets him know it. Hayden offers to help her mind her own business, and people at the fundraiser hear her give him what for. A hurricane's on the way, and when a corpse turn up under the pirate ship the next day, Jolie's looking like a suspect.



Trouble on the Doorstep
Jolie Gentil Cozy Mysteries #5

From Hurricane Sandy to Cozy Corner B&B repairs to Aunt Madge's wedding in three weeks. If Jolie can handle that surely she can deal with a sobbing woman who shows up at midnight playing a scary message on her phone. Pooki is frantic about her husband's whereabouts and is definitely ditzy. A shady deal for storm repairs at the Ocean Alley Senior Complex seems to be at the root of Steve Oliver's hit-and-run death and missing business partner, Pooki’s husband, Eric. When Eric ends up dead at the B&B, Jolie digs for clues as she burns muffins and appraises houses. Can Jolie find the murderer and expose fraudulent repair bids – without getting hurt?



Behind the Walls
Jolie Gentil Cozy Mysteries #6

Finalist for Chanticleer 2014 Mystery and Mayhem Award. It’s fun to buy a house. Unless someone wants what’s hidden behind the walls and is willing to kill for it. Jolie is pursued by a purse thief and a burglar, but the guy she’s most worried about is the one who left an elderly auctioneer dead on her porch swing. Suspects abound, but they aren’t all going to live to tell their story.



Vague Images
Jolie Gentil Cozy Mysteries #7

Bad enough that Jolie ends up in the emergency room because she avoided a deer. Worse to find a dead woman in the hospital restroom. In between appraising houses and feeding her pet skunk, Jolie’s on the lookout for a runaway teenager and whoever planted the dead woman in her path. Thanks to best bud Scoobie, she’s also planning a crazy fundraiser for the food pantry. Just when Jolie’s ready to leave the murder investigation to the police, she gets a surprise—and it’s not a good one. Will her need to know see her hurt—or worse?



Ground to a Halt
Jolie Gentil Cozy Mysteries #8

When Jolie Gentil goes to buy a cup of coffee, she finds Java Jolt empty. A bigger surprise is seeing proprietor Joe Regan later, badly injured. A potential killer thinks Jolie has something he was hiding. Jolie needs to figure out who's telling the truth and how far the thugs will go to find what they want. Only solving the puzzle will keep Jolie safe, protect a vulnerable Iraqi War vet, and make sure she stays alive. But if Jolie keeps searching, her budding romance with Scoobie may grind to a halt.



Holidays in Ocean Alley
Jolie Gentil Cozy Mysteries #9

Aunt Madge’s brief stay in assisted living (don’t stand on a stool to hang garland) would be uneventful, except for the body that falls into her apartment along with a Christmas wreath. After years of telling Jolie not to be a busybody, Aunt Madge turns to Jolie’s boyfriend Scoobie to help find clues. Told from Madge and Scoobie’s points of view, with help from some feisty seniors.



The Unexpected Resolution
Jolie Gentil Cozy Mysteries #10

A midnight wedding, Army veterans who face repercussions of two different wars, and a very startling wedding guest. A 9-1-1 call during the wedding changes everything. Jolie has to help Scoobie figure out what he wants to know, and determine who seems to want someone in his family dead. Book 10 in the Jolie Gentil cozy mystery series brings together the close-knit group of friends and zany Ocean Alley townspeople for a very special event – and a murder.
