Title: Everything Under The Sun
Author: Jessica Redmerski
Genre: YA/NA Crossover; Dystopian
Thais Fenwick was eleven-years-old when civilization fell, devastated by a virus that killed off the majority of the world’s population. For seven years, Thais and her family lived in a community of survivors deep in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains. But when her town is attacked by raiders, she and her blind sister are taken away to the East-Central Territory where she is destined to live the cruel and unjust kind of life her late mother warned her about.
Atticus Hunt is a troubled soldier in Lexington City who has spent the past seven years trying to conform to the vicious nature of men in a post-apocalyptic society. He knows that in order to survive, he must abandon his morals and his conscience and become like those he is surrounded by. But when he meets Thais, morals and conscience win out over conformity, and he risks his rank and his life to help her. They escape the city and set out together on a long and perilous journey to find safety in Shreveport, Louisiana.
Struggling to survive in a world without electricity, food, shelter, and clean water, Atticus and Thais shed their fear of growing too close, and they fall hopelessly in love. But can love survive in such dark times, or is it fated to die with them?

My Rating: 3.5 Stars

Series: Rose Gardner Investigations - Book 1
Publisher: DGS (November 29, 2016)
Publication Date: November 29, 2016
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Available from: Amazon | Barnes & Noble

Trouble always comes to those who court it. Rose Gardner’s ability to see glimpses of the future has gotten her into hot water time and again, but so have her curiosity and her sense of daring. Those very qualities helped her defeat the most powerful man in Arkansas—a man so adept at hiding his crimes there was no way to defeat him inside of the law—but her success came at a steep personal price. Now she’s throwing herself into her landscaping business, trying to live a life that’s as orderly as one of her gardens.

Rose’s best friend, Neely Kate, is struggling with her own losses, so when she suggests they help a local man find a missing necklace, Rose agrees. It’ll give both of them a welcome distraction, and besides, it’s a simple investigation. What harm could befall them? But things that should be simple rarely are. In seeking out the necklace, Rose and Neely Kate find themselves in the thick of a power struggle in the Fenton County underworld, one that could dethrone Rose’s friend James Malcolm, the surprisingly moral king.

The last thing Rose should do is court more trouble, but she’s not the type to step away from a friend in need—and she’s also not so sure she wants an orderly life.

Family Jewels by Denise Grover Swank
(Rose Gardner Investigations, #1)

Family Jewels (Rose Gardner Investigations, #1)The FAMILY JEWELS are missing…

Denise Grover Swank clearly has a knack for creating quirky characters that are endearing, feisty and folksy, because that is what she did with Rose and her BFF, Neely Kate!

A landscaping entrepreneur, there is a bit of a sleuth in Rose and being asked to find some family jewelry will send her on dangerous path to trouble, deceit and maybe a little romance, too! Now caught up in a local underworld power struggle, Rose will need the help of the “King of Crime,” who she just may have a soft spot for, because he really is a "good" bad guy.

Not having read the series from which this is a spinoff, I was at a disadvantage, but that said, I was entertained, chuckled a little and found out that the citizens of Fenton Count, Arkansas aren’t as small town pure as they seem!

Rose may find she is better suited to detective work than planting posies! A light, fun read, for sure!

Fight to stay alive.
The Gravelands are a dangerous place.
In a world of uncertainty, Cora Manning knows one thing without a doubt: getting into Genesis will offer her a brighter future.
When the intake coordinator agrees to let her in because of her genetic makeup, Cora discovers the promised city of utopia is nothing like she imagined.
The rebellion has begun.
“Sit,” Noelle said and gestured toward the cot positioned on the floor.
Without much thought I wandered over and stretched out to lie down. Had it not been a trying day and with bombings outside, I’d have opted to go home or at the very least refused special treatment. That was what Noelle offered me, wasn’t it?
“You don’t have to stay here all night,” I said. It felt weird to be watched as I slept. “If I need anything, I can let you know. Or I mean, whoever stays.” I didn’t want to assume she wouldn’t go home either. I shut my eyes and relaxed against the cot. It wasn’t the most comfortable bed I’d been in, but it beat the straw in the barn.
“Toby and I will alternate, unless your fever breaks. Then we’ll both go home and let you sleep in peace.”
Hearing her words was enough to help me relax. “Okay,” I mumbled. If only I had the ability to control my own body temperature.
Noelle shut off the lights which helped ease the throbbing pulse behind my eyes. The distant wail of the siren ceased. Had it ended? Was everyone safe? I took momentary comfort in the quiet of Noelle’s office and allowed myself to fall asleep.
During the night, I heard the door whine and I attempted to roll over, only half cognizant of where I was. The cot groaned beneath me and I felt the warmth of metal against my cheek.
“Wake up, little girl,” an unfamiliar voice said, and I heard the distinctive click of the safety released from a gun.
My eyes flashed open, staring up at the intruder, the gun tight against my skin. How would I get out of this mess?

Teresa (McPeek) Harrison grew up in Decatur, Illinois. After graduating from Eureka College in Eureka, IL, with a BA in Speech and Theatre, she moved to Granby, Massachusetts where she married and started a family and was actively involved with the local community theatres for several years.
When her son was young, she helped start a Community Playground project. Over the years, she was a Girl Scout leader and a den mother for her son’s cub scout troop.

After 13 years as an Assessor in Granby, she knew she needed to do something different. She went to work at Earth Spirits in Sturbridge, MA. She wrote a monthly newsletter, worked in the shop and helped develop their online presence. As sometimes happens, after many years, she and her son’s father divorced.
Teresa was brought up Catholic in a time and place that encouraged individual thinking (the 60’s). She enjoyed the prayers, rituals and singing in the choir. However, because of her Catholic education, she knew there was more to discover.
Eventually, she became interested in all faiths and how they played out in an individual’s life. She spoke with others and read extensively about the 5 main religions and their offshoots and various other spiritual paths. Her path led her to go inside and find her personal truth, beginning a journey of nearly 40 years.

They did figure it out and a two-year cross-continent romance began. When her son left for college and she finished her Master’s in Public Administration, Teresa joined Glenn in Southern California. Her son and daughter-in-law, who live in the Greater Boston area, have given them two beautiful grandchildren.
They both love to travel, and on a cross-country trip in 2003, they made a stop in Sedona for an overnight on their way to Santa Fe, NM. They decided to look at some real estate while there and never made it to New Mexico. They now live in the beautiful Red Rock country of Sedona, AZ, sharing the land with a herd of javelina, three large mule deer bucks, three ravens (more or less), various coyotes several quail families, packrats and assorted lizards.
Teresa has been reading and telling stories her whole life, and now she is writing them down.

Penelope may know the sting of betrayal, and she may be a little love-shy, but when Ferguson, (also betrayed by the woman he thought he would give up his merry bachelorhood for), pours on his simple, yet sincere charm, sparks are flying and tails are wagging! Will the wedding planner finally get her day to say I do?

Simple and sigh-worthy, this quick read from Sharon Kleve is the perfect ray of loveshine to make readers smile.

He's the hot college quarterback all the girls want.
She's the smart girl he loves to pick on.
And now that they're all grown up, things are about to get geekin' ugly...

My name is Tass. I'm smart, I'm driven, and I am determined not to let prankster Hunter Johnson continue raining on my parade. When we were little, he'd pull my hair and call me names. When we were teenagers, he'd throw food and tease me for being a flat-chested virgin.

But now that we've ended up at the same college, he's out of his hot head if he thinks he can keep messing with my life. It's like he's fixated on me or something. Well, guess what, Mr. Amazefootball? I'm not that geeky little girl anymore and you do not screw with a smart woman.

So what's my plan?
It's definitely wild, and he's about to find out...

Smart Tass by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff (OHellNo, #1)

Smart Tass (OHellNo, #1)Ahhh, revenge, a dish best served cold, right? To make it sweeter, Tass thinks she is finally going to get the upper hand in her lifelong dysfunctional relationship with hot jock Hunter Johnson. Too bad our little genius forgot that her heart would become part of the equation and just maybe there is more to “the Hunt” than rock hard abs, a pair of gorgeous eyes and a penchant for driving her crazy with his antics!

Mimi Jean Pamfiloff is the creator extraordinaire of SMART TASS the opening salvo in the OHellNo romantic comedy series! ‘Nuff said, right?

Quirky characters, awkward moments and a lifetime of interaction of the not-so-romantic kind will come to a head of epic proportions in college as Tass and Hunter find themselves exposed to the truth! Told through Tass’s snarky voice, I laughed a lot, sometimes having a chuckle break through two pages later! And Hunter? Um, he really wasn’t quite the Neanderthal Tass saw him as!

Pages and pages of fun, light-hearted reading nestled within a cast of characters that are priceless!
Let go of reality, live this tale, shake your head and be thoroughly entertained! Then think back to YOUR younger years, whatever happened to the kid who tormented you mercilessly? Did you ever get paybacks? How did that work out for you?

Shiloh Harrison was hoping for a few days off to recover from a particularly nasty assignment, preferably with the help of the talented hands (and, well, the rest of his body too) of her sexy boyfriend, Vincent. But when a group of vampires takes an entire trailer park hostage, there’s nothing to do but make her apologies and get to the scene.

Such is the life of a Federal Marshal in the Paranormal Investigators Unit.

Yet this isn’t like her typical track-and-nab case: something is going on that has vampires scared, and it takes all her strength not to imagine what could frighten such powerful creatures. Unfortunately, she doesn’t have that option. Her boss is MIA, someone is snatching vampires, and there’s a ticking clock that can only end one way: a bloodbath.

Unless she can stop it.

As they plot revenge against the person responsible, a bond–intense, unyielding, and manic–takes hold of them. And in an unexpected turn of events, they fall for each other.

No. The question is: when they learn the truth, will they care?
