Three sisters are thrown back together by their missing aunt in this relationship reconstruction story. Two of the sisters have not spoken in twenty years over a love gone bad.

The Age of Misadventure

The Age of Misadventures is very comical in so many scenes that you will probably laugh out loud. It is a semi-thriller wrapped up in the misadventures of four women relatives running from a thug. In it all is Georgie, standing tall to rescue her sister, Bonnie, from the mess her husband’s underhanded business has caused. Caught up in the drama are Jade, Georgie’s daughter, and Nan, Georgie’s eighty plus, hoot of an aunt. For a few spring weeks their lives are up ended as danger and more crazy misadventures combine.

Crazy Cupid Love

Crazy Cupid Love was just the right book for me to read after too many emotional ones. It is such a cute story that I could not put it down. Magic and spells abound for a struggling modern day Cupid who must face her fear of failures and somehow save her family’s match making business. There is an undercurrent of evil working against her but her best friend (a guy she really loves) is by her side the entire way.

More Than Words

more than words

This is a terrific book cover to cover. The young woman portrayed is well written and thought out as she tries to navigate the murky waters of her life when her father dies and leaves her in charge of the family hotel business. It is not where she predicted she would be until much later as she has found her personal footing as a political speech writer for an aspiring mayor. She finds herself drawn to the candidate which presents a whole different number of problems. How she finds a way to survive all the changes is what makes the story great. I particularly loved the tension filled pages describing Nina’s milieu of struggle to make sense of what is happening to her heart and to her life.
