Gabrielle Bernstein stops by...

I'm happy to welcome Gabrielle Bernstein who's once again stopping by here with a guest blog post.

Her second book Spirit Junkie: A Radical Road to Self-Love and Miracles was published by Random House September 12. It’s part memoir and part road map: Gabby shares her journey toward becoming the full-on, inspirational Spirit Junkie that she is today, and she teaches her readers every lesson she learned along the way.

BECOME A SPIRIT JUNKIE

Author NeonSeon stops by...

In the second children's book of the Life of Shouty series, Shouty goes from overweight and overwhelmed to fit and focused. "Life of Shouty : Food and Fitness" by NeonSeon (32p, Ages:3-4, Pub:Rixkin, Isbn-0984206914) promotes a healthy, active lifestyle and reminds us it's never to late to start making changes.

Review - Prey by Linda Howard

In this captivating novel of romantic suspense, New York Times bestselling author Linda Howard brings us deep into the wild, where a smart and sexy outdoor guide and her ruggedly handsome competitor must join forces to survive—and avoid becoming what they never expected to be: PREY

Linda Howard's books are a general hit or miss for me. Veil of the Night is one book of hers that I still remember with fondness and that's the only reason I made it past the synopsis for this book. Reason - it screamed predictability and in that aspect I was proved right. What's different is Howard's treatment of it which makes it somewhat interesting.

I'm not saying I loved it, but then I didn't hate it either.

Kill Me If You Can by James Patterson

Kill Me If You Can
Little Brown, 384p, Isbn-0316097543

An assassin who calls himself the Ghost, shoots and kills a Russian mobster at Grand Central station in New York. In the resulting mayhem, Matthew Bannon, an impoverished ex-Marine turned art student, stumbles upon the dying mobster and soon walks away with a bag full of diamonds.

Prince, a bigwig in the Diamond Syndicate mob, wants his stolen diamonds back at all costs and the Ghost is re-hired, this time to kill Bannon and get back the diamonds. As a precaution, another expert killer is also set the same task. Who comes out on top and how makes for a somewhat entertaining, if highly predictable, read. Spoiler + Cautionary note to all readers -There are Incest scenes in this story!
