<— BREAKING NEWS UPDATE!!!! THIS ONE IS LIVE!!!! I’ve been hearing that this one is her best yet… and it JUST WENT LIVE!!! The Empty Jar by M. Leighton and OMG the blurb makes me want to cry… and Brandi LOVED it! !!! “The Empty Jar by M. Leighton is LIVE, out early ahead of its Sunday release day!!! This is such a beautifully written and personal story!”
…And this is the ultimate sacrifice. One stunning act of true love. This is our story. Our true love story….
And look at what else went live!! Behind The Hands That Kill (In The Company Of Killers Book 6) by J.A. Redmerski!!! And here’s the “In The Company Of Killers” series order.
Happy Friday and I hope we have a fun-filled reading weekend AND that everyone has a great mother’s day (I think it should be called mother’s weekend).
Some brand new releases that just went live and look so good (like that one there to the left – HOLY MOLY what a blurb) but today is a BIG recommendations day. So many of you are reading different books and loving them. We have so many tried-and-trues to choose from. So I’m still adding to the list (i’ll be adding to it all day) so keep checking back to see what else we’ve found).
P.S. I’m on Instagram. Well I’ve been on there for awhile, LOL! But I’m posting funny pics of me ‘n Pim (my minpin puppy) and… books! She hates photos, but too bad. She’s too cute and I take her picture anyway.
P.P.S. Let me know if I’m missing any or if you loved any (from this list or elsewhere).

As the miles between her and safety grow, hope dwindles. It isn’t until someone else joins her in captivity that her spark of hope is rekindled.Derek is strong, capable, and surely together they can fight their way to freedom. Then Rose finds out exactly why she’s been driven into hell. Derek may be an unwilling captive, but he isn’t going to help her.
