Bringer of Fire is the first book in a new series by Jaz Primo of Sunset Vampires fame.  I love Jaz’s Sunset Vampire series but this book is different. Do not look for vampires to be in it. Logan Bringer has a different super power. Be prepared to be blown away. Logan Bringer was an ordinary guy. He has friends and family that care about him. He played football in high school, served six years in the army and went to college. He also has brain cancer and has been undergoing experimental treatments at The Nuclegene Cancer Treatment Center.  The center just happens to be located inside The Wallace Building. A building that was blown up on a day he was supposed to be there. Whoever thought coming down with the flu could be lucky?
Or was it? Logan and Maria, the P.A. at the center, are the only su…

5 Flaming Stars for Edge of Dawn

FEBRUARY 26, 2013
*I received this title for review from NET GALLEY. I received no compensation for this review. The review is based on my thoughts and feelings while reading this book. All opinions are mine and may be used by author or publisher.*
Edge of Dawn is book 11 in Lara Adrian's Midnight Breed Series. It is the second series I got into - right behind Sookie Stackhouse and right before Anita Blake. In all honesty Sookie has disappointed me the last couple of books and Anita was letting me down after the about the 10th book, (I still read them - what a junkie I am LOL). When I saw this book I was both excited and nervous. My first thought was, "OMGOSH! The Breed is back!" followed by, "Book 11. Please don't let me down." Thank goodness I can honestly say it is AMAZING!  I was on an emotional roller coaster throughout the book. 
Edge of Dawn picks up with the Breedmate Mira, raised in the Order by Nikolai and Renata…

Review of Learning to Stay

Happy Valentine's Day!

Learning to Stay  Erin Celello NAL Trade Kindle Paperback
*I received this book for review purposes from Net Galley. No compensation was received for my review. All opinions are my true thoughts and feelings concerning this book.*
I saw this book offered on Net Galley and thought it would be interesting. I loved the title and the cover. I never imagined the impact this book would have on me. I believe Learning to Stay will be at the top of my list of 2013 Best Books. Here is the synopsis from Net Galley:
Elise Sabato is proud of her husband, Brad, for serving his country...and grateful when he returns home to her. But the traumatic brain injury he suffered in Iraq has turned him from a thoughtful, brilliant, and patient man into someone quite different....someone who requires more care and attention than Elise can give while working in a demanding law firm. And when Brad ends up on his family’s farm, hundreds of miles away, she wonders where their marriage is headed…

Slow Cooking with Dina Cheney

Year-Round Slow Cooker Dina Cheney Taunton Press
I love cookbooks. I read them as thoroughly as I do novels. I own about a hundred in print and at least another fifty on my Kindle. Believe it or not they all have different recipes. Of course some recipes are printed in multiple books. Favorites are favorites for a reason. 
I also am in love with my slow cooker. It was my salvation as a working mom. I cannot express enough how delightful it was to come home to a wonderful smelling house and dinner ready. That changed a bit as my children aged. I soon learned unless dire warnings were strategically place around the slow cooker, smell would be all I got. 
So when I saw Year-Round Slow Cooker in Net Galley's offerings, I had to get it. Having enough slow cooker recipes to get through a year of cooking, I was interested in what she could bring to the pot. She brought a lot. In addition to the recipes she provide tips and other help. The tips are strewn throughout the book like hidden gem…

Review: The Haunted Fixer-Upper

The Haunted Fixer-Upper (Haunted Renovation Mystery)Rose Pressey
*I purchased this book. All opinions are mine. No compensation was received for review.*
When I saw a new book by Rose Pressey I was excited. I always have a fun time reading her books. The Haunted Fixer-Upper was exactly that - a good time. I think it may be her best work yet. I have read a number of Rose's books. It is difficult to say which series is my favorite. I think Haunted Renovation may make that decision for me.  This is the second book in the series. You do not need to read the first one to enjoy this one but you may want to just for the laughs.  Alabama Hargrove is back. This time she is down in Georgia meeting her boyfriends family. While on the way to his daddy's house Alabama spots a house that just needs her touch. It is haunted of course. When Bama goes to meet with the owner she sees her boyfriend standing over the dead body with a hammer in his hand! Even though she does not tell the anyone about …
