#SweetsForLove, writing

WIP Wednesday…

Are you ready for a little snippet from #SweetsForLove (set to Wildest Dreams by Taylor Swift – Taylor’s version :-))?

“Are you a serial killer?”

The words tumble out of my mouth.

He raises one amused eyebrow. “Nope.”

“Married? Engaged? Seeing someone?”

“Nope. Nope. And nope.”

“Me either.”

And because he has no idea who I am. And because this won’t hurt anyone. And because I’m tired of being too careful…

“Can I kiss you?” My voice is barely above a whisper.

“Can I kiss you back?”

Gavert City is on Kindle Unlimited (plus a promo…)

Are you ready to set foot into Gavert City? “The perfect books for fans of Criminal Minds and the movie Scream…” are now available on Kindle Unlimited as a boxed set. You can also get it as paperback.

Have you already read all the books and do you have a few minutes? You can leave a review and help other readers find this bundle of books.

Are you ready to step into Gavert City? The small Texan town with a history of mysterious disappearances and murders and cults, where falling in love almost seems dangerous? Those books filled with tension and twists will keep you up at night and may break your heart before piecing it back together.

Included in this set:

Fear Me, Fear Me Not (Erin & Dimitri’s story):
A serial killer has been terrorizing Gavert City for years… what if it’s my father? My forever crush Dimitri may try to protect me but he can’t protect me from the truth.
Here’s what we all know: Sometime this week or the next or the one after that, we will find another dead girl. Every year, a girl disappears, and every year, she’s found dead with an angel wing carved into her cheek.
And this year is no different.
Another girl disappeared.

See Me, See Me Not (Tessa & Luke’s story):
My sister disappeared years ago… but her body was never found. My mom wants to believe she’s still alive. I’m not sure what to believe. I know that I miss her. I know that I feel responsible… I’m the reason she disappeared. And I’m not the only one with secrets. My childhood crush, Luke, is back in town and there’s a darkness to him that wasn’t there before. He’s hiding something… But when he finally tells me he escaped a dangerous cult, will we be able to help each other heal or will our pasts come back to crush us?

Trust Me, Trust Me Not (Lacey & Hunter’s story):
I may have jumped for a building engulfed in flames. I may have thought I was ready to start college after living secluded in my stepfather’s dangerous cult. I may have believed I was finally safe.
I was wrong.
Can Hunter, the firefighter who saved my life, help me move on? Or will danger always lurk around us?

Reading/Listening to next…Psychological thrillers

I’m in the mood for psychological thrillers and I think those three books will definitely fulfill that craving. Is that weird to say “craving” when it comes to psychological thrillers? Hmmm. I might either read or listen to them. If you’d like to read them, at the time of this post, both WHITE SMOKE and LOCAL WOMAN MISSING are on sale for $2.99… THE REPLACEMENT WIFE came out on Tuesday. 🙂

Oh and if you’re thinking about trying Audible to listen to them, you can click here be aware not all titles are in the Plus catalogue – the Chemical Engineer and I figured that out after signing up – but you do get one credit or two credits as well which is cheaper with the membership than without). You can, also, of course get the audiobooks from your library! Many libraries have an audiobook service.

In this smart and chilling thriller, master of suspense Mary Kubica takes domestic secrets to a whole new level, showing that some people will stop at nothing to keep the truth buried.

People don’t just disappear without a trace…

Shelby Tebow is the first to go missing. Not long after, Meredith Dickey and her six-year-old daughter, Delilah, vanish just blocks away from where Shelby was last seen, striking fear into their once-peaceful community. Are these incidents connected? After an elusive search that yields more questions than answers, the case eventually goes cold.

Now, eleven years later, Delilah shockingly returns. Everyone wants to know what happened to her, but no one is prepared for what they’ll find…

The Haunting of Hill House meets Get Out in this chilling YA psychological thriller and modern take on the classic haunted house story from New York Times bestselling author Tiffany D. Jackson!

Marigold is running from ghosts. The phantoms of her old life keep haunting her, but a move with her newly blended family from their small California beach town to the embattled Midwestern city of Cedarville might be the fresh start she needs. Her mom has accepted a new job with the Sterling Foundation that comes with a free house, one that Mari now has to share with her bratty ten-year-old stepsister, Piper.

The renovated picture-perfect home on Maple Street, sitting between dilapidated houses, surrounded by wary neighbors has its . . . secrets. That’s only half the problem: household items vanish, doors open on their own, lights turn off, shadows walk past rooms, voices can be heard in the walls, and there’s a foul smell seeping through the vents only Mari seems to notice. Worse: Piper keeps talking about a friend who wants Mari gone.

But “running from ghosts” is just a metaphor, right?

As the house closes in, Mari learns that the danger isn’t limited to Maple Street. Cedarville has its secrets, too. And secrets always find their way through the cracks.

START READING ON YOUR KINDLE NOW (Only $2.99)

The #1 International bestselling author of Pretty Little Wife returns with another thrilling domestic suspense novel that asks, how many wives and girlfriends need to disappear before your family notices?

Elisa Wright is a mom and wife, living a nice, quiet life in a nice, quiet town. She’s also convinced her brother-in-law is a murderer. Josh has one dead wife and one missing fiancée, and though he grieved for them he starts dating someone new. Elisa fears for that woman’s safety, and she desperately wants to know what happened to her friend, Josh’s missing fiancée.

Searching for clues means investigating her own family. And she doesn’t like what she finds. A laptop filled with incriminating information. Other women.

But when Elisa becomes friends with Josh’s new girlfriend and starts to question things she thinks are true, Elisa wonders if the memories of a horrible incident a year ago have finally pushed her over the edge and Josh is really innocent. With so much at stake, Elisa fights off panic attacks and a strange illness. Is it a breakdown or something more? The race is on to get to the truth before another disappearance because there’s a killer in the family…or is there?

Gift guide

Gift guide for Ted Lasso fans (10 gifts under $25)

‘Tis the season. But it doesn’t have to be. This is a gift guide for any season, really. If you have a Ted Lasso fan in your life, here are a few things you could gift them (all under $25). Some of those links (the Amazon ones) are affiliate links.

  1. Bake them “the” biscuits from Ted Lasso and of course make sure you deliver them in a pink box.

There are several recipes for the famous biscuits from Ted Lasso. Apple TV shared the official recipe with Today Food 🙂 and you can see the recipe here.

And when it comes to pink box… Amazon and Etsy have several ones that would work…

  1. A tree ornament: Believe or Be A Goldfish
This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is TL-BAG-HLD-100326-FT-MF_900x.jpg
  1. Give a donation in their name to a local charity / organize a toy drive

If you know a cause that is close to their heart, donating it to that cause in their name is a thoughtful way to show them your appreciation. Plus, Ted Lasso would approve. If you do not know a cause close to their heart, you can always donate to the food pantry close to you or find a school project in donorschoose.org , contact your local hospital, local shelter and ask them if they would benefit from a toy drive.

  1. A notebook (Because can you ever have too many notebooks?)

Don’t you dare settle for fine Spiral Notebook on RedBubble ($12.82)

Fútbol is life Spiral Notebook on RedBubble ($13.35)

  1. Wall art to make them smile.

Something on the smaller smile to fit in different rooms or on a desk. (Keep in mind the frame isn’t included).

To organize make-up or headphones/cables or some pens/crayons… those little bags can also make your loved ones smile as they use them.

  1. Decor for their laptop/phone and more

8. Ted Lasso-Inspired Pencils – $10 (Etsy)

  1. Because can you ever have enough mugs?
  1. How about for people who love candles?

This one is Biscuits with the Boss. It’s available on Etsy for $16…

BONUS GIFT (and a little of self-promotion because as Ted Lasso would say, “Believe in yourself”…): A COPY OF #TheLeftoverBride (KindlePaperbackHardcover).

If they like romance books, you could gift them my novel #TheLeftoverBride and let them know that Ryan grunts like Roy Kent 🙂 This is not a sports romance. And yes, there’s no soccer in it. But again Ryan, an injured hockey player who needs to reevaluate his career (and his life) now that he most likely won’t be able to play again, grunts like Roy Kent. And he may be grumpy but he has a heart of gold. And this book has been compared to “Hallmark’s movie sexier and sassier cousin” and “fun with a lot of chemistry.” So, don’t hesitate to one-click it today for you or for a loved one. 🙂
