Valentine's Day 2020

Hey lovelies! I don’t usually celebrate Valentine’s Day much because I don’t feel there needs to be a specific day to show my love but it’s still considered the day of LOVE and I wanted to share the love with this community because I think you guys are the Bee’s Knees!❤💛💙 I hope that all of you had a great day and you guys deserve nothing but the best on this holiday and everyday after.❤✨

“Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.”

Lao Tzu

“Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.”

Poetry Book Review: Every Love by Jann Doe

I would like to thank the author for providing me with an e-ARC in exchange for an honest review.


Love can be wholesome,
Healthy and pure.
It can also be deadly,
Of this I am sure.
I’ve experienced many,
I’ve opened my door.
Of all the love that I’ve held
There’s one thing I know,
Ain’t no one has loved
Quite like me… Jann Doe.

EVERY LOVE is a collection of poetry covering my own experiences in love. From abuse, to affair, to healthy commitment, I’ve shared many love lifes… even suicide has played a part. The name ‘Jann Doe’ is to protect myself and my family from my own mistakes and history, given the parts of me that love has touched.

It’s been awhile since I have read any poetry and was happy to have a change a pace. What I didn’t realize was how much I would relate with the poet’s words and could feel experiences through the depth of the pages. Every Love is not only a great book of how love effected them, from romance to heartbreak to suicidal thoughts and abuse, it’s all together the depths of a survivor’s heart.❤ This book was deep and beautiful and I highly recommend it to anyone who reads poetry.


Jann Doe is a poet who recognizes and accepts her authenticity as a woman, and encourages other women to do the same. Everyone has their burdens to cary, their flaws to accept, and their strengths to pride themselves on. Jann’s goal as a poet is to speak out on behalf of other women across the globe to love themselves for who they truly are. No one is perfect, nor should we be. It’s imperative that we as women accept ourselves, and live for tomorrow… not by ignoring our past but by learning from it, and growing because of it.

Rest in Peace, Dallas, Our Kitty

Last night we had a terrible incident and lost our 10 week old kitten, Dallas. He brought me and my family so much joy and he will be greatly missed. You are in our hearts, Dallas.

This is the only photo of him taken a couple days ago when he was trying to play with my phone while using it. I know it’s hard to see him because he is all black but he had the cutest little face and yellow-green eyes and very fluffy.

To make heaven the perfect resting place for loved ones we adore,
God made sure those Pearly Gates contained a kitty door.

The memories and paw print of a beloved pet remains
in our heart and soul forever.

Justice for Belle by Didi Oviatt~Book Review

I would like to thank Reads & Reels Blog Tours and the author for providing me with an e-ARC in exchange for a review. Thank you for this opportunity!


Ahnia has a very dicey past – one that is scratching under the surface, just dying to get out.

She’s hit rock bottom, broke and desperate to be on top again. When she finds herself partnering up with man she hardly knows, and who’s utterly untouchable, she’s forced out of her comfort zone and left to question her own sanity.

Will Ahnia and Mac’s dangerous decision be a success, or will she find herself in the clutches of an unforgiving force, brought about by her childhood sin?

In this nail biting thrill ride, no one is as they seem… and no one is truly safe with those they trust.

I just love reading books by Didi Oviatt! She just keeps getting better and better, which I didn’t know was possible! While reading this fast paced novella, I was on the edge of my seat to read as fast as possible through the twists to get to a fantastic conclusion!


I enjoyed how this book leaves you hanging and guessing all throughout and then you are left surprised. Justice for Belle has intriguing characters, a fast pace, thrilling twist, and great world building! What shocked me when I finished reading this story, was that Didi Oviatt was able to provide so much depth in a novella! Most novellas I read, I feel like it’s always missing something but not with Justice for Belle! I highly recommend this to anyone who is searching for a quick and suspenseful read by one amazing indie author. I am so glad I got the opportunity to read this book. It was the perfect read when I was stuck at the doctor’s office for a few hours and felt quite accomplished and satisfied to have a whole gripping adventure within a few hours! Woot! 5 stars, hands down.

When Didi doesn’t have her nose buried in a book, she can be found enjoying a laid-back outdoorsy lifestyle. Time spent sleeping under the stars, hiking, fishing, and ATVing the back roads of beautiful mountain trails, and sun-bathing in the desert heat play an important part of her day to day lifestyle.

Sparks & Landmarks (The Mitzy Moon Series #4) by Trixie Silvertale


Many thanks to the author & ARC Detective Team for providing me with an e-ARC in exchange for an honest review.

About Fries & Alibies the First in the Series


A gift that’s too good to be true. A murder she didn’t commit. A barista in a latte trouble…

Mitzy Moon believes she’s an orphan, so she’s dumbstruck when a special delivery to her low-rent apartment reveals a family. But her shock turns to awe when she discovers her grandmother left her a fortune and a bookshop of rare tomes brimming with magic.

No sooner does she set foot in the quirky village of Pin Cherry Harbor to claim her inheritance, than the handsome sheriff catches her standing over a corpse. Desperate to prove her innocence, she’s forced to accept help from her granny’s entitled cat and a spirit from beyond the grave.

Can Mitzy and her otherworldly helpers uncover the real killer before the long, sexy arm of the law hauls her to jail?

Fries and Alibis is the first book in the hilarious paranormal cozy mystery series, Mitzy Moon Mysteries. If you like amateur sleuths, small town intrigue, and a dash of the supernatural, then you’ll love Trixie Silvertale’s twisty whodunits.

ALL THREE – AVAILABLE NOW!

A suspicious fire. A Valentine’s Day discovery. Will this psychic sleuth gamble—and lose?

Mitzy Moon’s clairvoyant abilities are growing, but she never predicted arson. After waking to a towering inferno and loading her mentor into an ambulance, she thought things couldn’t get worse. But when the sheriff links her father to the blaze, she’s forced to take the case.

Coming up empty on love and leads pushes Mitzy to unnecessary risks. Now her otherworldly helpers, a nosy Ghost-ma and a fiendish feline, are the only ones who can save her bacon. But with break-ins, Bingo, and big storms stalling out her investigation, she may not be able to keep her dad out of jail.

Can Mitzy dig up the right clues, or will she fall for a sinister plot that puts her six feet under?

Sparks and Landmarks is the fourth book in the hilarious paranormal cozy mystery series, Mitzy Moon Mysteries. If you like snarky heroines, supernatural intrigue, and a dash of romance, then you’ll love Trixie Silvertale’s twisty whodunits.



Wow!!! Trixie Silbertale has done it again by bringing another fantastic addition to the Mitzy Moon Series! I didn’t think it was possible for this series to get even more addicting & fun but it did.😍 I love everything about this series but the characters truly make this story shine.🎆 I love Pyewacket & Ghostma and how they bring a unique charm to the series. I also swoon over Erik!💖 #bookboyfriend I definitely can’t forget about the main character whom I can relate to in so many ways and I just love her sassy, snarky, & clumsy self. The story captures your attention from the first page and won’t let up until your at the end craving for the next book! The ending made me so happy and I really can’t wait!! I highly recommend this book and series to anyone looking for a great read that will leave you smiling and full of laughter.❤

Headliners by Lucy Parker-R&R Tours Promo

headliner.jpg

Headliners (London Celebrities #5) STANDALONE BOOK!

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Expected Publication Date: January 20th, 2020

Publisher: Carina Press

He might be the sexiest man in London, according to his fan site (which he definitely writes himself), but he’s also the most arrogant man she’s ever met.

She might have the longest legs he’s ever seen, but she also has the sharpest tongue.

For years, rival TV presenters Sabrina Carlton and Nick Davenport have traded barbs on their respective shows. The public can’t get enough of their feud, but after Nick airs Sabrina’s family scandals to all of Britain, the gloves are off. They can barely be in the same room together—but these longtime enemies are about to become the unlikeliest of cohosts.

With their reputations on the rocks, Sabrina and Nick have one last chance to save their careers. If they can resurrect a sinking morning show, they’ll still have a future in television. But with ratings at an all-time low and a Christmas Eve deadline to win back the nation’s favor, the clock is ticking—and someone on their staff doesn’t want them to succeed.

Small mishaps on set start adding up, and Sabrina and Nick find themselves—quelle horreur—working together to hunt down the saboteur…and discovering they might have more in common than they thought. When a fiery encounter is caught on camera, the public is convinced that the reluctant co-hosts are secretly lusting after one another.

The public might not be wrong.

Their chemistry has always been explosive, but with hate turning to love, the stakes are rising and everything is on the line. Neither is sure if they can trust these new feelings…or if they’ll still have a job in the New Year.

Coming Soon!
