FIVE GOLDEN WISHES by Cari Lynn Webb – Book Review

FIVE GOLDEN WISHES by Cari Lynn Webb is a wonderful read for this holiday season. I totally loved it. This is a cute story that filled me hope for the new year. I could relate it to myself too well with me being a single mother. I get what Sadie could have dealt with with recent divorce and kids to take care of. Christmas brings hope, love and sharing. I wish I could go to Christmas Town and meet Odette, her three friends and all the locals. The setting in this small town is perfect. Dylan is the dream man. In spite of dealing with his own loss of his father, he always is willing to help his aunt and others. I enjoyed the love blossoming between Sadie and Dylan. The book is an easy read and the details of certain events are wonderfully written by the author. I recommend it to all my friends and any age group. With the Christmas just gone and New Year at our door steps, I must say that this book definitely made my year better by rekindling my spirits and hopes for the future ahead of me.

Drenched Sunflowers by Tammera Cooper – Blog Tour, Review & Excerpt 1

“Rainy days and river views fill Beth’s summer as she makes a new start in small town Washington, North Carolina. After the loss of her husband in a tragic accident, simple seems better. It’s time to renovate her life, starting with a future art gallery on the river. Sam, her contractor, has everything under control, but the stress of the construction project and new business is beginning to make her crazy. Nightmares and visions of ghosts become the nightly norm. She doesn’t have time for this. She doesn’t have time for her heart to make room for him.

Sam is happy filling his days and nights with work. His two jobs as a teacher and contractor are his passions and do not leave room for much else. This new project has possibilities: a beautiful owner, the history of the house, and an 18th century diary. Beth’s dream is becoming a timely reality until she disappears.
Mystery and intrigue fill the haunting river bank of the Pamlico as Sam and Beth find the truth behind the Water Street house and each other.”

Drenched Sunflowers by Tammy Cooper is a romantic thriller. This story has a ghost in it but its the friendliest and nicest ghost I’ve ever come across so far. Beth is a widow who comes to a small town to get away from his dead husband memories. She hires Sam to renovate the old building and convert it into an art gallery. They discover a basement from 18th century during the process. Beth starts seeing nightmares and a ghost. The ghost keeps warning Beth about the danger from someone but Beth ignores. Beth starts liking Sam and they both go on a couple of dates. Beth feels very overwhelmed by the opening of the art gallery, nightmares and Sam. She gets kidnapped one day. The story has a wonderful twist about the kidnapper. The author maintains the suspense in an even tone all through the story and manages to keep a hold on the reader.
I very much enjoyed this book and in fact started believing the existence of friendly ghosts after reading this novel. I found the romance and suspense in equal parts in the book. The details about the small town Washington, NC are beautifully described. The characters are also very well built.
This book is a complete entertainment. I recommend this book to all my friends.
Beth ran to the back of the house. Her chest hurt as she gasped for her next
breath. Screams came from the small outbuilding at the corner of the yard.
Rain poured down in sheets as the lightning flashed around her. Sunflowers
waved in the wind, bending, almost touching the lawn. The trees joined in the
harsh dance forced to follow the rhythm of the storm. It had gotten worse.
Someone was stuck, and they couldn’t get out of the shed. She kept running,but it seemed the shed was getting farther away. The yard was starting to
flood.
“I’m coming,” she yelled, but no words came out of her mouth. The screaming
got louder. She finally reached to the door. The lightning flashed with a loud
clap of thunder. Beth jumped because it was so loud. She reached for the
doorknob, but the handle was gone.
“Help! The water is coming in. I can’t get out.”
It was a woman on the other side of the door. The banging was so loud. Beth
tried to get some leverage on the door, but there was nothing to grab. The
rough water was getting deep, up to Beth’s waist. It wouldn’t stop coming. It
must be coming over the river bank.
She looked around the yard for something to pry the door open as the
structure started to sway. She had to get her out of there. She ran back to the
shed just as it collapsed. A horrible scream split the night air. The roof fell, and
the walls ripped apart in the surf as they disappeared into the darkness. Maybe
she could still save the woman. Maybe she wasn’t badly hurt. Beth grabbed at
the debris tossing it out of her way like a mad woman. Under a broad beam,
she found a young black woman strangely dressed. The beam held her pinned
under the water. Yard tools and other rubble floated in the waves that churned
around her. A basket floated by Beth as she bent to move the massive beam.
She looked down at the person struggling under the water. It was the woman
she had seen in the bathroom mirror, her eyes pleading for help. She tried to
grab Beth as air bubbles escaped her mouth.
“Oh, my God, it won’t move.” Beth looked down at her, the hope draining from
her spirit. The beam wouldn’t move. She tried again, but the water was too
deep now. With a quick glance back toward the house, she spied an older
woman standing in the window. Beth waved her arms, hoping for some bit of
salvation, but the woman turned away as if she couldn’t see Beth at all. Beth
turned back to the woman and reached out to lay a reassuring hand on her
arm only to find, there was no life left to be saved.

I didn’t think it’d turn out this way: my life story in a nutshell. Life, Karma, whatever—it was testing me. Pushing me to the limit of what I could endure and beyond.
But in the steaming pile my life had become, I felt it. The spark. Like my soul met its counterparts, or whatever the corny saying was. I didn’t think it was possible. For a closeted guy, falling for not one but two men was never going to be easy, but I couldn’t deny its truth. Mace and Rick were….
Then I had to leave. My sister needed me. Having a baby alone was out of the question and I couldn’t wait to be an uncle. But going to stay with her in Florida meant leaving them. New Zealand and the USA couldn’t be further apart.
I’m not a saint. I’ve screwed up more times than I can count. But I was trying to redeem myself. Gracie, my niece, needed me to be a better man. If only there was a way I could have both—men to love and a family close by.
This is my truth, and this is all I need.

By day Ann Grech lives in the corporate world and can be found sitting behind a desk typing away at reports and papers or lecturing to a room full of students. She graduated with a PhD in 2016 and is now an over-qualified nerd. Glasses, briefcase, high heels and a pencil skirt, she’s got the librarian look nailed too. If only they knew! She swears like a sailor, so that’s got to be a hint. The other one was “the look” from her tattoo artist when she told him that she wanted her kids initials “B” and “J” tattooed on her foot. It took a second to register that it might be a bad idea.
She’s never entirely fit in and loves escaping into a book—whether it’s reading or writing one. But she’s found her tribe now and loves her MM book world family. She dislikes cooking, but loves eating, can’t figure out technology, but is addicted to it, and her guilty pleasure is Byron Bay Cookies. Oh and shoes. And lingerie. And maybe handbags too. Well, if we’re being honest, we’d probably have to add her library too given the state of her credit card every month (what can she say, she’s a bookworm at heart)!
