Wrong Place ,Wrong Time by E. James Harrison, Blog Tour & Giveaway!











Book Summary:

The first idyllic hours of Greg and Marena Walker’s Caribbean vacation are filled with turquoise water, sand as soft and white as powdered sugar, and gentle ocean breezes. But all too soon the Walkers find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time. Now they are running for their lives . . .Scott Vaughn has made a lucrative career of secretly transporting illegal materials. Pay him enough, and he’ll move whatever you want from anywhere to anywhere. And though he has never met the Walkers, he needs them dead. His future depends on making certain they don’t have one.Wayne Hovey desperately wants Scott Vaughn—alive is best; dead is acceptable. And luck has handed him the perfect bait: Greg and Marena Walker.In a heart-pounding game of cat and mouse, each player is driven to succeed, never realizing they are all pawns in something much larger—and more dangerous—than any of them knows.


My Review:

This is the first book that I have read by Harrison and I was impressed! This is an action/suspense novel on a whole new level. I was hooked from page one and completely embedded into this drug running/illegal transporting world. Trying to figure out the big picture and wondering how the Walkers would ever survive kept me page turning until the very end. Never before could I imagine being on a beach vacation and stumbling onto a murder and known drug runner! But Harrison easily transports the reader into crazy heart pounding situations that keep you on your toes the entire time! This is an action/suspense novel that you do not want to pass on, so I suggest grabbing a copy! You will not be disappointed!


Happy Reading!!!

About E. James Harrison:
I grew up on the west side of Salt Lake City in a pretty typical family.  My dad worked most of his life in a factory, my mom was a homemaker and my three sisters were...sisters!  The two older ones were always bossing me around and I always had to give in to my younger sister.  (They may not remember it exactly like that, but it's true--really!)  A mom and three sisters means a lot of estrogen in a house, so during my preteen years my dad and I would escape whenever we could to the quiet of the mountains and deserts of Utah pursuing my dad's favorite hobby--rockhounding. Saturday's meant trapsing over desolate ground and blasting old cans full of holes with a .22 rifle.      
My early teen years were filled with pimples and the clumsy awkwardness of getting to know girls and for the most part, those are years to be forgotten.  It was during my high school years that two great things happened in my life.  First, I discovered airplanes and boats--two things I thoroughly enjoy to this day.  But second, and by far the most important and best thing that's every happened to me, was I met my wife, Debbie. (That's a picture of her over on the right.)  I met her in a geometry class. The teacher sat us alphabetically and I ended up in the desk behind her.  Had there still been ink wells in the desks, I'm sure I would have dipped the tips of her long dark hair in the ink in an effort to attract her attention.  With no ink I had to satisfy myself with untying the bows made from ribbons that she used to tie back her hair.  I succeeded in getting her attention, and ultimately convincing her to marry me, but not for several more years.
After high school there was a year of college (University of Utah) and then two years as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  Returning from my missionary responsibilities I shocked everyone--including myself--by being accepted to Brigham Young University.  And that's when I first discovered writing.  I had no idea what I wanted to be when I "grew up," but the fiancĂ©e of one of Debbie's roommates was majoring in public relations.  I had no idea what that was, but it sounded fun so from then on I told everyone I was a public relations major.  I thought it would be a bunch of back slapping and socializing. Little did I know that English and writing are at the heart of public relations.  And the rest, as they say, is history.  I ultimately got an Associate degree in public relations and a Bachelor degree in creative writing.

Love in Disguise .jpg



Book Summary:

Marion Watt is set to embark on her first London Season, and her parents have spared no expense to help her secure a suitable husband. Unlike most of the social-climbing women in her position, Marion has no desire to marry hastily or for anything less than love. But when she learns of her mother's declining health, she knows she must keep an open mind and allow herself to be courted. What she does not anticipate, however, is that the attentions of the insufferable Lord William Everton will be placed squarely on her. He might be the most sought-after bachelor of the Season, but she sees in him nothing but a frivolous cad.
Until William inherits his father's title and seat in parliament, he must rely on his own devices to change the world. Dressing like a ridiculous dandy serves its purposes, but he is certain his newest disguise will help him find a wife to please his parents and further his own agenda. From among the glittering group of debutantes, William finds only one woman who passes his test. Unfortunately, the perfect choice is the only woman in all of London who despises him.

My Review:
I absolutely loved this book and could not put it down! This regency era set novel about Marion and Lord Everton swept me away. I found myself wanting Marion to find just the right man for her and then when Lord Everton set his sights on her I was dumbfounded! How would this unlikely pair work or could this unlikely pair work? And what was Lord Everton really all about? Was there more to this man than meets the eye? There were so many ups and downs that Walker kept me on this thrilling roller coaster ride I never wanted to get off from! She seamlessly wove a story of not just love, but heartbreak, scorn, and deceit. WARNING:  do not start this book if you do not have time to finish it in one sitting! You won't be able to stop reading or thinking about it!  Go, run, and one-click Love in Disguise, you will not be sorry!!!


Happy Reading!!!

The Heart of a Vicar by Sarah M. Eden, Blog Tour & Giveaway!




Book Summary:

Young love is all too fleeting, as Harold Jonquil painfully discovered years ago when Sarah Sarvol, the niece of a neighboring landowner, captured his heart. After an idyllic few weeks in the throes of blossoming love, reality intervened. They could have no future. Following their disastrous parting, Harold attempted to push aside thoughts of love and regret, but Sarah has never left his heart. Now, years later, he has achieved his lifelong aspiration of becoming the local vicar. However, the role proves more difficult than he imagined. He feels hollow and uninspired—until the most important person in his past returns, challenging him as no one ever has.

When Sarah’s ailing uncle summons her back to the family estate in England, there is only one person from her past she is reluctant to see again: Harold Jonquil, the only man who has ever claimed her heart. But when she comes face-to-face with her former beau, she hardly recognizes the aloof and dull man before her. She is determined to help Harold rediscover the passion he once felt toward his chosen profession. Soon, despite their exasperation with each other, they cannot deny the stirring of feelings long buried—but is it too late for second chances?


My Review:

I have loved all of the previous books about the Jonquil brothers and this one, if it is even possible....exceeded my expectations! This is a story that you will want to read; it has depth, emotion, and makes you ponder life. Harold is trying to find himself. He is trying to figure out who he really is because for his entire life it seems, he has been trying so hard to play a part and to please everyone else. And somewhere in that process he lost the most important thing...himself. This story is also about Sarah, Harold's one time love from long ago. Their lives cross paths once again and she challenges him and makes me think about his own life. I loved this book so much because it makes you think, feel, and become so engrossed in Harold's story that you forget it is a book and not reality.


Happy Reading!!!
