Into the clouds by Marilyn Leach

Ascension Sunday balloons are not the only things disappearing in the English village of Aidan Kirkwood.  When the villagers celebrate the first Ascension Sunday Processional in fifty years, someone goes missing.  A well off window that was amongst the crowd has vanished into thin air.  And, she’s not the only one who’s nowhere to be found.  Berdie Elliott, the local vicar’s wife, goes into sleuth mode as eccentric cat lovers, a secretive informant, Portuguese holidays, an enigmatic “tree” house, and tangled family dynamics all add to the perplexing affair.  Don’t let this mystery slip from your sight.
Into the Clouds Excerpt With the ferocity of a sudden clap of thunder in a spring storm, the vicarage door bell invaded the treasured moment. Hugh sighed. “I’ll get it.”  Berdie pulled herself away and made way to the front door, deciding not to grumble but cherish the past uninterrupted hours shared with Hugh. “Lillie,” Berdie greeted her nicely dressed but unexpected guest at the opened d…

Copenhagen Cozenage by Kristen Joy Wilks

Blurb: Morgan Ravn arrives in Denmark seeking clues about her mysterious heritage. What she finds is a flirtatious stranger who regales her with a story about a jewel thief from 1958 and then abandons her with a large unruly dog.  Can Morgan locate the irresponsible pet owner before his monstrous canine drags her through every puddle in Copenhagen and sheds all over her last dress? And why are strangers dogging her every step, snapping photos? Is the shutter happy behavior a bizarre Danish custom or something more sinister?

Excerpt: I dropped my purse. With a few clacking steps, I maneuvered back to where it had fallen. Was my skirt too short to bend over? I wobbled a little but snagged the purse with a finger. My heel stuck in the strap. I yanked. It remained immovable. I yanked again. No luck. With careful precision I attempted to liberate the purse while simultaneously lifting the offending heel off the ground. Standing on one leg while wearing girlish attire for the first time in near…

Where hearts meet by LoRee Peery

Blurb: Shattered by the loss of her parents, Deena pours her love into her patients at an assisted living facility. When the son of one her charges starts showing up to spend time with his mother, Deena's wary heart is warmed by his attention to his mother...and to her. Simon is plagued by his ex-wife's disappearance years before. When he meets Deena, who closely resembles the woman, he fears his attraction is based only on Deena's looks. But she exhibits a warmth his ex-wife never had. Dare he risk his once broken heart? As two lonely souls pursue a tentative, budding love, secrets and lies come forward to tear them apart. Can Simon and Deena overcome loss and allow their hearts to mend?
Excerpt: Deena strained to catch what he’d said. “I’m sorry. I should have been more sensitive to your reunion with Angelina. I don’t mean to pry.” “You aren’t prying at all. I consider you close enough to confide in. We’ve already shared a lot of who we are. And my ex is no longer my focu…

Now he has her enacting insane acts of espionage while trying to catch the culprit who has embezzled money from their company. If it wasn't for his deep brown eyes and lazy smile she just might quit. Is this God's plan for her life? She isn't even sure who she is anymore without her twin and the way things are going she just might end up in the loony bin.

Summer's Flame by Wendy Davy

Firefighter Aiden Hawk has found his calling - giving back to the community that helped raise him - but deep down he longs for more. When Summer Cassel comes into his life hope sparks, and he dares to dream of a family to call his own, but each time he nears her, his nerves kick in and a shy streak takes hold.

When Aiden moves in next door, Summer is determined to give him a proper welcome. After all, the handsome man ignites a flame she can't seem to resist.

Will she be bound by fear or released by faith?

He stepped close. "I thought you'd be asleep by now."

"I saw the news." Her voice shook.

A mixture of emotions cascaded through him. Had she waited up for him?

She tucked her lower lip between her teeth as if hesitant as to what to say next. After a moment, she st…

Test post

this is just to see if this works. Just added all the details to the iPad so I can post from here too.  The previous post was to show Dad how blogger works. Ok so let's put in a random photo.

 Wow look how long my hair used to be
Speaking of hair, I'm having it shaved off soon for charity. Links will be in another post.   This is so strange doing it on the iPad not the comp. only this is I might need a photo app to access the pics on here. Let's try something.  No. So that's not gonna work cos this isn't an android tablet. Or a phone. Maybe there is another way. 
Anyway. This is me waffling randomly. And signing off to the opticians again. So tired of this now. But that is another long story. As is the fridge that ices up and drips water all over my food. Did you know that's normal behaviour for a fridge? Well according to the engineer that came out it is!!!
