Sara Thank you so much for celebrating with me!!!! <3 P.S. Wait until the end for a giveaway.   Ciara: What was the hardest part of writing Ice Like Fire? Sara: The hardest part of any second book in a trilogy is making it a complete story while also being the bridge between Book 1 and Book 3. Sequels are like unruly middle children. C: What inspired the Snow Like Ashes trilogy?  S: […]

Blame it on the Kiss Tour: Review, Excerpt, and Giveaway

Review: “Blame it on the Kiss” by Robin Bielman is probably my favorite book of her’s so far. Bryce Bishop is the best good guy there is. He wants to find something that will last forever. When Payton dumped him by leaving a voicemail, Bryce is crushed and doesn’t want to trust another woman. Honor Mitchell is definitely a free spirit. she likes being her own person. The one thing that seems to hold Honor back is she is continually living with regret. She thinks that all she does is fail and that she won’t ever do anything better. When […]

“One Evening in Paris” by Nicolas Barreau was alright. I can’t say it was excellent but I didn’t hate it either. Alain has inherited a small art cinema in Paris. The popular romance stories of the past bring Alain peace and it seems to complete his life. But one day a girl in a red coat changes his life. their is a girl that comes in a red coat, who sits in the same seat every Wednesday night and so Alain decides that he wants to get to know her better. Barreau creates a very delicate romance that is set […]

A few days ago Ali asked me if I would be interested in taking over her blog for a day. It sounded like a fun thing to do; even though I haven’t done anything like this before. So, as a first timer, I spent this weekend thinking about a topic I wanted to write about. And really, there was only one subject that seemed to come to mind. A little trip down memory lane About a year ago I wrote a post on my blog about the things I’d tell you if we -as old friends- were having coffee. At the time […]

Ali: What inspiration did the characters of Les Misérables give you to write the Destiny trilogy?  Cindy: I was first inspired by Eponine and her story of courage and love even though she knew it would be unrequited. She helped Marius find Cosette even though it hurt her. I’ve spent some time pondering that. The only thing I could come up with was that Eponine loved Marius so much that she wanted to do even something that would her her to see him happy. That kind of pure love is extremely inspiring to me and I brought it back hints […]


Book Review: Small Blessings by Martha Woodroof

Book Review: Small Blessings by Martha Woodroof
Posted September 10, 2014 by love2dazzle in Fiction, Giveaways, Reviews / 0 Comments

This story is about Tom Putnam, who is a college professor. He has been married for many years to a woman that suffers  from a fairly sever mental illness. Putnam’s wife passes away just as a new woman shows up in town. Rose is new to town and she seems to intrigue anyone that meets her. It was definitely a little weird that Tom’s wife passed away very early in the story. It seemed that most of the characters just seem to mock the poor woman. I can’t say that I really liked this book because none of it seemed […]

Interview:   Ali: Which genre do you prefer writing, Young Adult or Adult Romance? Cindi: I like mixing it up so I don’t get bored, much like I do with my reading.   Ali:  You seem to excel in both genres, why do you think that is? Cindi: Thanks! I try really hard to switch up the voices on my books, which again, keeps me from getting bored. I’m a character driven writer, so I just start seeing a character and feel the urge to tell their story, regardless of age. And of course age changed the set of problems […]

Interview:   Ali:  You are a Pitch Wars Mentor for the second time. What is your favorite thing about Pitch Wars? Veronica: The absolute best thing about Pitch Wars is the way relationships form around the contest. I have been on both sides (I entered two years ago, though I didn’t get in), and I’ve made so many friends along the way, with other mentors and fellow contestants! The awesome community is definitely the biggest thing that keeps drawing me back time after time. Also, even though I didn’t get into the contest, I consider myself one of the success […]
