Christian Thriller Available - The Christian thriller entitled Heart of Terror is now available.  The Midwest Book Review said of the book: "Heart of Terror is an exciting twist of thriller and faith, very much recommended reading."  The novel is available as an ebook as well as in hard copy from and from the Barnes and Noble website.

With so many tragic and crazy things going on in the world lately, both children and adults alike are desperately seeking comfort and security. Thus, I thought it was a pertinent time to make a post about comfort books -- books which evoke a sense of comfort from one's childhood and bring them back to the safety they once felt. Check out my post on Literophilia and please, add your own comfort book suggestions! Chloe Parker's Top 5 -- Comfort Books

5.0 out of 5 stars Astray

This book was one of the best reads for me this year. Carlos King has a way of bringing words into live characters that you actually known in your life. Excellent book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Astray

I just finished reading, Astray by Carlos king. If you are look for something to read that does not involve drug and killing, this is the book for you. This book tells the story about how a young girl's life was turned upside down at a tender age. The story will have you "teary eyed" and jumping for joy. This author kept it real. This little girl went through something to be able to come back on top, only to find out that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. If I could give this book more than 5 stars I would. If you don't believe me, read the book and I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book
This review is from: Astray (Kindle Edition)

This was a good book, a page turner from beginning to end. I love to see the underdog succeed! I couldn't give the book 5 stars because of the typos. But a good read nonetheless. I look forward to reading more from Carlos King.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable

This was a easy read. That poor child couldn't catch a break. I was happy with the ending. I think Alexis went through so much but she came out on top in the end. It was like really watching her grow up and mature right before your eyes. She had all the right ppl in her corner.

Hi my name is Tina Joy I just self published my first book Family Plot on amazon.

Amazon Family Plot Tina Joy

Kelly had no idea that she had any living relatives let alone relatives with a huge estate. When she receives the news that she has been named in their will she drops everything and goes to Salem Massachusetts to hear the reading. Little does she know that what she is about to inherit is much more than an estate and her life may hang in the balance because there is a serial killer who wants the inheritance all to himself. Will she be able to stop him and prove what he has done or will she become his next victim?


5.0 out of 5 stars very good book fast moving,

Read entire book in two nights. Interesting and fast moving. Looking forward to Tina Joy's next book. This book kept my interest and took several interesting turn of events. I loved the characters she created. I could relate to them and how I would feel if I were in their situation. I recommend if you like Mary Higgins Clark type books. Right there!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME!,

Relatively Close blog tour stop: Shayna Gier's Book Reviews!

Note: This is the third book in a series, and it is highly advised that you read Easter's Lilly and Brother Number 3 before reading Relatively Close. They are super-quick reads, and I promise you won't regret doing so by the time you get to number 3! (The third book- not the second. haha)

Summary: Recovering from the latest family trauma has made the Montiago family wake up to the fact that their priorities have definitely been misplaced. With Max throwing himself into the depths of his work as an FBI operative, he inadvertently sends the wrong message to his wife and brothers. In Relatively Close, the third book of the series, Lilly fights for the attention of her husband, until it becomes painfully clear that she is up against a mistress way more powerful than the ones she has fought before. Keeping it relatively close is something with which Lilly is way too familiar. She turns her attentions to another, only to find out that the reality of the business, which has kept her dripping in diamonds and living in mansions, is nothing more than an ugly reminder of El Diablo anda suelto: The devil running loose.

I've done my best to avoid spoilers of any kind when writing up these three reviews. You will, of course, be given the current storyline if you haven't read the rest of the series, but you should be free from any major spoilage of any kind.

Please stop by my blog and check out my review of Relatively Close as well as my interview with the author, Judy Serrano. I had a lot of fun talking back and forth with Judy and I can't wait to read the fourth book of the series!
