THE ANTIDOTE FOR EVERYTHING by Kimmery Martin – Spotlight & Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED

antidote

Kimmery Martin’s sophomore effort, THE ANTIDOTE FOR EVERYTHING (Penguin/RandomeHouse) is already getting rave reviews. In this whip-smart and timely novel, two doctors travel a surprising path when they must choose between treating their patients and keeping their jobs.

Georgia Brown’s profession as a urologist requires her to interact with plenty of naked men, but her romantic prospects have fizzled. The most important person in her life is her friend Jonah Tsukada, a funny, empathetic family medicine doctor who works at the same hospital in Charleston, South Carolina and who has become as close as family to her.

Just after Georgia leaves the country for a medical conference, Jonah shares startling news. The hospital is instructing doctors to stop providing medical care for transgender patients. Jonah, a gay man, is the first to be fired when he refuses to abandon his patients. Stunned by the predicament of her closest friend, Georgia’s natural instinct is to fight alongside him. But when her attempts to address the situation result in incalculable harm, both Georgia and Jonah find themselves facing the loss of much more than their careers.

THE OTHER MRS. by Mary Kubica – REVIEW & Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED

other

“Deliciously creepy.” That’s what I think about Mary Kupica’s new novel, THE OTHER MRS. (ParkRowBooks) and I’m not alone. It seems to be everyone’s thought about Kupica’s book which is already a bestseller! It’s one of the few books I’ve read and didn’t figure out the twist until the end.

Sadie and Will Faust move from their Chicago home to a remote island off the coast of Maine after Will’s sister leaves her mansion to him after committing suicide. They find the timing perfect since Will has been in an affair which almost destroyed their marriage. But not only does the family inherit a really creepy mansion, Will’s niece, Imogen with her crystal blue eyes outlined in black liner, is what you picture a teen to look like in a horror film.

After their arrival, the first murder ever occurs on the island. Who did it? Soon the new family is under suspicion. With every day that passes while the killer is on the loose, Sadie is more suspicious and paranoid about life on the island.

What I love most about Mary’s novels is her ability to get into the heads of the characters, and in THE OTHER MRS. really create layers of deception among the family’s many secrets. THE OTHER MRS., is a thriller that’s unpredictable and has you wondering just what the hell is going on until the very end. Expect to be shocked. I certainly was.

BEEN THERE, MARRIED THAT by Gigi Levangie – REVIEW & GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY CLOSED

Been-There-Married-That-by-Gigi-Levangie

Agnes Murphy has everything a Hollywood wife would want – the mansion, designer clothes, credit cards, martini lunches, luxury home and car – until her husband decides he wants a divorce.

“When he changes the locks, she changes the rules.”

BEEN THERE, MARRIED THAT (St.Martin’sPress) by Tinsel Town insider, Gigi Levangie has all the dish any LA watcher would want.

Not everyone who’s read BEEN THERE, MARRIED THAT likes Agnes. Many readers say she’s not relatable, living in a world they know nothing about. But isn’t that the point of these kinds of “Hollywood insider” novels. It’s called satire. BEEN THERE, MARRIED THAT is pure candy for those who tune into “Entertainment Tonight,” “TMZ” and plan their year around watching the Academy Awards.

I found reading BEEN THERE, MARRIED THAT hilarious. I couldn’t flip the pages fast enough. It had me laughing out loud for a few hours!

It’s interesting to note, this is the first novel Gigi writes without using her ex’s last name.

She fell into his arms.

naima

USA Today Bestselling author Naima Simone’s love of romance was first stirred by Johanna Lindsey, Sandra Brown and Linda Howard many years ago. Well not that many. She is only eighteen…ish.

Published since 2009, she spends her days–and nights– writing sizzling romances with a touch of humor and snark.

THE WORLD CAME TO US by Molly D. Campbell – Spotlight & Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED

world.jpg

In Molly D. Campbell’s novel, THE WORLD CAME TO US, Tommy Poole and her mother Meg have decided to become recluses together. Not forever; only for a year. And not at night when the dog needs to be walked. But in the midst of their grief over the loss of Tommy’s other mother, Sam, shutting themselves off from the outside world seems like the only viable path to recovery.

However, while they have decided to step away from the world, the world has not made the same decision. Soon, Tommy’s best friend is living with them. And the crotchety neighbor is making his presence felt far more than anyone appreciates. And when a teenaged girl with a troubled past and an indignant future enters their orbit, life might be as full for Tommy and Meg as it has been in years.

And that was before the wedding . . .

Rich with Molly D. Campbell’s trademark humor and resonant with ruminations on loss and identity, The World Came to Us is the author’s most heartfelt, compelling, and poignant novel yet. It is a story of letting go and letting in and a touching tale of discovery and rediscovery.
