Quotes from “The Shadow Girl”


“I have always known that I am invisible—I had no idea that eventually I would fade away completely.”

 “Blackness. Nothingness. It was in the shape of a giant, hazy shadow, enveloping me, swallowing me, and digesting me into the unknown. It was my biggest fear and my ultimate fate.”

 “As the freezing rain hit me, I could feel the stares…smoldering on my skin. I longed for invisibility. At times like this, the very curse that plagued me was also my protection.”

 “…in school I felt more undetectable than ever. I walked through the crowded hallways like a human pinball, careening off one person and bouncing into another.”

***Readers who like books by Debra Burroughs and Melinda Leigh will like, The Stone Arch Secret.

Twenty-eight-year-old anthropologist, Lilly Allaire, receives a phone call telling her that Dax is dead. The cause of death is unknown.
At the age of fourteen, best friends, Lilly and Dax, experience a traumatic incident. After the incident, Dax is institutionalized in a psychiatric hospital in a catatonic state. For Dax, his memory loss is a subconscious act of self-preservation, a blocking out of all memories. Lilly still suffers a blocked memory of that day and has frequent nightmares.
After Dax’s funeral, Lilly decides to go back to Salmon Brook, her hometown, to find out the truth about the mysterious incident that destroyed Dax’s life. While searching for clues to the incident, Lilly has a chance meeting with a former high school classmate, Noah Hawthorne.
Noah remembers Lilly as his high school secret crush and offers to help her. Together, they try to unravel the mysterious incident that plagues Lilly’s dreams and turns them into nightmares. They soon realize that their hometown has a deadly secret and both their lives are now in danger. However, Noah has a secret of his own that puts Lilly in harm’s way.

I absolutely LOVED The Stone Arch Secret by K.D Dowdall! I have to be honest and say I was a bit sceptical when I saw it. I mean the premise sounded awesome but this was a new author for me. I am so glad I gave this book a shot! The story had a great mystery and a sweet romance without the freaky, freaky added to it which I enjoyed!

You guys know I love to add to my review when a book I have read can relate to my life. Well this one did in a couple ways but mainly what Dax and Lilly went through stuck out the most to me.

As some know, I was in and out of institutions growing up because of a severe mental illness caused by some severe trauma I went through as a child. Well Lilly still goes through blocked memories and nightmares. I have night terrors about every night and because of having D.I.D. I battle amnesia from different parts of my life.

The reason I could relate to what Dax webt through was because I was institutionalized atleast 3/4s of my life and I also went through catatonia for about a year. I couldn’t believe when I came to that I got to that point but I did.

The characterisation in this book was fantastic and the plot was great. Even though this was a light read, it was full of depth. I won’t soon forget The Stone Arch Secret by K.D Dowdall and I highly recommend this story!

Karen DeMers Dowdall (K. D. Dowdall), born in New England, has a Master’s degree in Nursing and a PhD in Nutrition, spent her elementary-grade school years in the small farming community of Salmon Brook, settled in 1680 by a stalwart group of Europeans.

Karen has also traveled abroad and has lived in the Republic of China, Saudi Arabia, and England. Karen’s new fiction, Garrett’s Bones, is a mystery, murder with with a dash of romance and the paranormal. Karen’s first novel, Delphi Altair Strange Beginnings, is a fantasy fiction adventure story.

Reads & Reels Blog Tours Book Review: Follow the Snowflakes

I want to thank Reads & Reels and Angelina Kerner for providing me with an eARC in exchange for an honest review. I appreciate this opportunity. All views and opinions expressed are my own.

Book Blurb:

At 28, it’s bad to be single. After four years of relationship struggles, Cat is ready to try anything.

That’s when her friend tells her about her class’ Dear Santa letters. One little boy asked for a new mommy, and she suggests Cat meets the kid’s dad, just to see where things go. Cat figures it can’t hurt…until she meets a stranger in the midst of a car accident. The man is handsome with a sad look in his eyes. He still wears a wedding band and she’s not sure his heart’s available, even if he makes her heart race. But, maybe he’s a widower? Cat wonders if she should resign herself to being an old maid, or whether she could possibly be the answer to a little boy’s Christmas wish, unless there’s a third option – a future with the stranger.

Review: I give this book 5 out of 5 heartwarming holiday stars! I am so thankful that Reads & Reels reached out to me regarding this holiday novella! I have been in this wicked slump lately and haven’t been in the Christmas spirit at all and have been rather depressed being stuck in bed with health concerns. Reading this novella certainly was what the doctor ordered! While reading Follow the Snowflakes, I felt my heart instantly warm and all that I could focus on was wanting more. I fell in love with the characters in this book and felt that I could relate to Cat and Regina! If you love Hallmark movies, I highly recommend this sweet novella! Angelina Kerner took her passion and dreams and created a holiday romance masterpiece. I was a little nervous about reading this novella because I follow Angelina on WordPress and she is a fellow blogger but from page one she put my worries at bay! YAY!💖❄ Also I enjoyed her shoutout to all fellow WordPress bloggers in her dedication! Woot, Woot! This book was also open minded and fun. The story was open minded towards the LGBT+ community and also had a fun Christmas party scene!

Okay, so the party wasn’t like this but I had to add this GIF. Lol. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and it helped me get out of this nasty slump I was in. I even enjoyed that it was a short novella! I love novellas because you can hit it and quit it! Wam bam, thank you ma’am! Some novellas the author just can’t pull it off, but in this story that is clearly not the case! I know I am rambling a bit lovelies, but I truly want to share my joy of this holiday family oriented novella! I felt like I was inside of a Hallmark movie and this book gave me hope for brighter days! I hope everyone has a fantastic week and a lovely holiday season! Oh and one more thing, I loved how open minded this book was with different religious and spiritual beliefs! The main character even celebrated a Pagan holiday. I am an open minded Christian but love diversity and open minded characters! Thanks Ms. Kerner for a remarkable experience that I won’t soon forget!

Angelina Kerner’s writing career started at a young age when she discovered that her creativity could be channeled through a bit of ink and paper.

She moved around during her younger years from Novosibirsk and Kaluga Russia to finally settle in the San Francisco Bay Area, California. This startling contrast between the fierce snow of Siberia and the bright sun of the American West is a crucial source of inspiration and humility: the forces of people is to be found not only in their spirits, but in their land too.

Angelina’s curiosity in the human condition led her to pursue courses in psychology and blossomed into a master’s degree in Topographical science. It was with a burning fire that she rejected the status quo offered to her generation, and after many meaningless jobs, she decided that writing could be the canvas in which she could express this dichotomy. While working full time behind counters and registers, she persisted in supporting her family, her full-time coursework, and her creative dreams.

She dared to believe in her talents, and most importantly, in her ability to make a real mark on this world.

Like any creative soul, there was time for doubts, self-loathing, and loneliness, but never fear. She worked on countless experimental narratives, universes, genres, until her voice crystallized into her first published narrative. She is now the author of Deity’s Soulmate and Seven Hours: Challenge Accepted. Her next project involves a competition for a beautiful phoenix. Angelina currently divides her time between her family, work, writing, lots of cats, and two celestial dragons.

Blog Tour: A Pearl for my Mistress~5 Stars

I want to thank NetGalley and Annabel Fielding for providing me with an eARC in exchange for an honest review. I appreciate this opportunity.


A story of class, scandal and forbidden passions in the shadow of war. Perfect for fans of Iona Grey, Gill Paul and Downtown Abbey.

England, 1934. Hester Blake, an ambitious girl from an industrial Northern town, finds a job as a lady’s maid in a small aristocratic household.

Despite their impressive title and glorious past, the Fitzmartins are crumbling under the pressures of the new century. And in the cold isolation of these new surroundings, Hester ends up hopelessly besotted with her young mistress, Lady Lucy.

Accompanying Lucy on her London Season, Hester is plunged into a heady and decadent world. But hushed whispers of another war swirl beneath the capital… and soon, Hester finds herself the keeper of some of society’s most dangerous secrets…

Review: I give this book 5 out of 5 historical romance stars! I just loved this book! I was so hesitant about reading this when the author asked if I would be a host for her blog tour. I haven’t read a historical book in awhile and wasn’t sure how I would feel about it. Thank heavens, I said yes to this author! A Pearl for my Mistress was filled with forbidden love, was well written and great history!

This book had me up late turning pages to see how the character’s fate would lead. I loved Hester and Lucy. With having two completely different backgrounds, it was beautiful to see how their romance took off and how their hearts intertwined. I highly recommend this book!

Review: I give this book 4 out of 5 Twisted Stars! Wow what an enthralling thriller! I was blown away with how many twists and turns were in this novel! There was so many surprises and it was hard to keep up with everything at all times! I can’t go into the plot that much because it would cause major spoiler alerts, but I felt the plot was very well written and descriptive! The reason I am not giving this 5 stars is because I was confused on how one of the characters “orchestrated something” but felt all upset about something at the same time but I know people can be so confusing. I can’t yet again explain it right because of the whole spoiler thingamajig but this was an emotional roller coaster! One minute I’m totally invested and think I am all Ms. Sherlock Homeboy telling my good friend Kim at By Hook or By Book that I had it all figured out in my head but of course this book brought me so much twists than I thought possible and she kept her lips sealed of course. Some scenes were a little intense for me personally so I have to admit that this may be a trigger for some who have suffered some kind of domestic violence. I’m not trying to give away anything but it’s brought up in this book and think the warning is deserved.

I highly recommend this book if you are looking for a good thriller that will keep you up late turning up pages! This book had me up way past my bed time and the kids have to go to school in a few hours but overall this was #WorthIt!!!

On another note friends: I am still going back and forth with the support people via email to get my issues with following and interacting with some followers fixed. I hope they are able to fix this issue because I really want to follow my new followers and definitely keep my old and awesome ones! I hope everyone has a great week!!! Yay!

Reads & Reels Blog Tour: White Water, Black Death by Shaun Ebelthite

I want to thank Reads & Reels Book Tours and the author for providing me with an eARC in exchange for an honest review. I appreciate this opportunity and being one of the hosts for this blog tour.

Book Blurb:

Magazine editor Geneva Jones has been sent on a trans-Atlantic cruise to help secure a major advertising agreement from the CEO of the cruise line Rachel Atkinson, but her efforts to win her over are curtailed by a mysterious crew death. Geneva suspects foul play. Rachel insists its suicide. A former investigative journalist, Geneva can’t resist digging deeper, but what she finds is far more devastating. There’s an Ebola outbreak on the ship, everyone is trapped aboard and Rachel is trying to keep it secret.

Geneva knows enough about Ebola to be terrified, but she’s also onto the biggest story of her career. Rachel turns Geneva’s own colleagues against her when she tries to investigate, so she enlists the help of her son, Aaron Atkinson, whom Rachel adopted from Uganda seven years ago, when he was a teenager. Now an isolated and vaguely broken adult, he’s an easily manipulated source. At least that’s what Geneva thought. Off the coast of Bermuda, with the ship anchored in quarantine, Aaron makes a public announcement informing passengers of the outbreak.

Panic surges through the ship. People begin jumping overboard, ignoring a ship-wide lockdown. The ship’s security start to lose control, tasering passengers indiscriminately. A mayday is declared in front of the world’s media, but Bermuda refuses to open its maritime border. The ship limps toward Miami, with more than half of everyone aboard sick. Rachel shocks everyone by resigning after a public lounge is converted into an apocalyptic triage clinic. Geneva has lost her story, Ebola can’t be treated on-board and the nearest help is more than 3,000 miles away.

Review: Wow what a thrilling and fantastic book! I give this book 4 out of 5 thrilling stars! While reading this book I was on the edge of my seat and so anxious to figure out what was going to happen next! The reason I am not giving this book 5 stars is because I was a bit confused in the beginning and wasn’t sure what was going on at first. This probably could have just been me but overall this was a great read! This book was filled with twists and turns that I didn’t see coming! There is action in this book from beginning until end! I highly recommend this book!

I did a little bit of buddy reading with Adrienne @ Darque Dreamer Reads and we both agreed that we will never step foot on a cruise ship after reading this thrilling book!😰😰😰

Here’s the listed schedule of the blog tour hosts and when their reviews will be placed for this book! Happy Reading!

*Review: Skin Deep by Cassie Leigh~5 Stars*

I want to thank Xpresso Book Tours and Cassie Leigh for providing me with an eARC in exchange for an honest review.


Skin Deep
by Cassie Leigh
Publication date: September 26th 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance


Mr. Right Now is planning on forever…

Gigi Duval doesn’t do relationships, especially with her heart and career on the line. She values two things–her image and a good time in the bedroom. Watching men lie and cheat her whole life hardened her against “happily ever after”. When she interviews with Roman Bishop, the sexy co-owner of Ink Spinners Tattoo, she begins to wonder if he might be more than a casual fling. Only one thing is certain: Roman is off limits. Gigi can’t possibly add her best friend’s brother to her little pink book. Or can she?

Review: This book was just what I was looking for when I read it. I was searching for something sexy, fun and gave me all those good feels. I am so glad I was able to find everyrhing I wanted in this book plus more! I love books that have stuff about tattoos thrown in there, probably because I have 21 of them!😁 This book was much more than a simple love story and I had a blast reading it! I highly recommend this book especially to my rockabilly and tatted up ladies out there! If you enjoy a sweet and cute romance, you will enjoy Skin Deep by Cassie Leigh.
