Front Row Action

Whoever came up with the phrase, “As exciting as watching concrete harden” obviously has never watched concrete harden, because its pretty darn exciting. I was filled with joy and glee when we had concrete poured on the side walkway of our house a few years back. It changed the whole function of the yard. Exciting stuff, see? I bet that same person would not find watching your street get repaved exciting either. Well that is what’s happening today. The boys and I, as well as a few neighbors have set-up chairs to watch. Sipping lemonade and watching all the action. It’s an awesome summer day!

Oil is vanishing from the Cisco field and revealing it becomes a death sentence.

Newly trained and ready to rock her first assignment, Gwynn Reznick goes undercover posing as an accountant for the Prudell Energy Company. After fending off the unwanted advances of a company executive, she stumbles on a murder scene staged to look as an accident. Then she learns another employee died in a suspicious oil well accident and a large quantity of oil is missing from the Cisco field.

This book is a wild ride of action, adventure and mystery all rolled into one fast-paced story.

Her boss (and boyfriend) Ruben calls and warns Gwynn not to go poking her nose where it doesn’t belong and to wait for his directions. She promptly ignores his orders and sets out to solve the case, which quickly spirals out of her control as she ends up on the perpetrators’ hit list. Will Gwynn be able to maintain her cover — or risk everything to crack the case?

The gripping pace of the story is set from the very first page and this holds true to the end.

Any reader who enjoys action, adventure, murder mysteries, or just a plain good read will love Cisco Bandits: A Gwynn Reznick Mystery

Vasilisa the Terrible: A Baba Yaga Story (Midnight Myths and Fairy Tales Book 1)
by April A. Taylor
4.8 Stars (12 Reviews)
Genre: Literature & Fiction | Mythology & Folk Tales | Fantasy

This clever, dark reimagining of Vasilisa the Beautiful is ideal for fans of The Bear and the Nightingale, Wicked, and Maleficent.

A small village is filled with fear after Vasilisa reports seeing a witch in the nearby cursed woods. Neighbors turn on each other, the land turns bone dry, and bodies begin to pile up. Baba Yaga quickly becomes the primary suspect. Meanwhile, Vasilisa uses her beauty and charisma to bewitch the minds and hearts of every other villager. But is she truly a witch or is something else responsible for all of this mayhem?

Fairy tales depict Vasilisa as beautiful, brave, and fair. But what if terrible was a better description? Baba Yaga has been called everything from a murderous witch to an ambivalent guardian between the living and the dead. But what if she was simply an observant, skeptical elderly woman who was cast out of society for being different? Vasilisa the Terrible: A Baba Yaga Story encourages readers to look beyond the attractive surface to find the ugly evil hidden within.

This dark, reimagined fairy tale was created with adults in mind, although it’s also suitable for most young adults. Vasilisa the Terrible is not intended for young children, unless you’re comfortable sharing the darker, gruesome fairy tale style with them that was exhibited in the original, uncensored Grimms’ Fairy Tales.

Death Song of the Sea: A Celtic Story (Midnight Myths and Fairy Tales Book 2)
by April A. Taylor
Genre: Mythology & Folk Tales | Literature & Fiction

The Midnight Myths and Fairy Tales series of standalone, reimagined fairy tales, myths, and folklore continues with this retelling of the classic Irish Folktale The Bride’s Death-Song.

Aileen and her father have a secret; they can control the sea and everything within in it. Despite this, Aileen’s mother and sister perished in the sea, and the young woman believes she is stuck forever in her ancestral home on Ireland’s West Coast. She goes to the shore daily and asks the sea for one gift: “Bring me someone to love, marry, and raise children with.” Getting her wish could cost her everything, though, including her own life.

This dark take on a classic tale examines the line between life and death, and it also asks a very important question – how far would you go to save someone you love?

Please note that these books are not intended for young children. They’re perfect for adults and young adults, though, along with slightly older children who are comfortable with the content of the original, uncensored Grimms’ Fairy Tales.

The Haunting of Cabin Green: A Modern Gothic Horror Novel
by April A. Taylor
3.5 Stars (12 Reviews)
Genre: Horror

Welcome to Cabin Green, where the setting is familiar, but the story is completely unexpected. This original, terrifying psychological thriller is the debut horror novel from the author of the highly rated Midnight Myths and Fairy Tales Series. Socially conscious, inclusive, and raw modern Gothic horror that reflects the world around us and takes a close look at the destructive nature of grief. Current Goodreads average rating (as of June 18): 3.8 stars.

Going to Cabin Green alone after the death of his fiancée was Ben’s first mistake. His second mistake was tempting fate by saying, “There’s no such thing as an evil building.” Now he’s caught in a nightmare of his own making deep in the woods of Northern Michigan. Even worse, a family history of mental illness makes it impossible for him to know if the ghosts haunting the cabin are real or all in his head.

This modern Gothic horror story takes the reader directly into Ben’s hellish experience. Is he crazy? Is a ghost haunting him? The only way to find out is to make it to the end of this deep, dark thrill ride that’s filled with more twists than a roller coaster.

This book was inspired by a real-life, spooky green cabin in Northern Michigan that’s so well-hidden it can’t be found by GPS!

Within this novel, you’ll be taken back and forth in time. The time frames are indicated by clear markers. These time jumps provide valuable background information about the main characters and allow you to get to know them more intimately. These jumps are also used as a device to weave a thread throughout the entire book that provides clues about the cabin’s sinister secrets. Pay close attention: Can you guess the shocking ending?

Content Warning: This isn’t a Saw-type torture story, but it does contain gore, sex, profanity, and deeply disturbing psychological themes. This isn’t a fluffy horror story; it’s emblematic of the destructive, devastating nature of depression/grief. Readers are taken directly into the main character’s experience, which means that feelings of confusion are normal and intentional. Until Ben knows what’s going on, readers won’t know, either! For mature readers only.

Dinner And A Pin

I’m on a shopping spree for Disney trading pins again. I haven’t bought any yet, but I am window shopping like mad. The problem is there are just too many. How is one to choose? As luck would have it, three of my friends have trips planned to Disneyland, so I can ask each of them to pick me up a pin or seven. This is very reminiscent of when I was going nuts for Lego mini-figures. I still love the little buggers and I have a display case full of them, but now my attention has moved on to pins. My hubby asked me what I wanted for our wedding anniversary and I blurted out excitedly that I wanted the Limited Edition Guardians of the Galaxy Mission Breakout 2017 Disney Opening Day Pin! He gave me the same look that the teacher from the movie A Christmas Story gave the little boy who wanted the Red Rider BB gun. I have a Red Rider and I would be more than happy to trade it with him for that pin. I get the feeling hubby was thinking more along the lines of a nice dinner. My poor hubby is so happy he married an adult.
