New Release ~Hampstead Fever @DrCarolCooper

Hampstead Fever By Carol Cooper

It is high summer in London and trouble is brewing.
Chef Dan should be blissfully happy. He has the woman of his dreams and a job in a trendy Hampstead bistro. But his over-anxious partner, engrossed in their baby, has no time for him.
Stressed doctor Geoff finds solace in the arms of a mercurial actress. Journalist Harriet’s long-term relationship with Sanjay hits the buffers, leaving each of them with serious questions to answer. Meanwhile single mother of four Karen lacks the appetite for a suitable relationship.
Passion and panic rise in the heatwave, but who will spot the danger signs?

Book Spotlight ~ Book One Of The Hurst Chronicles @HurstChronicles

✮ Book One Of The Hurst Chronicles ✮ by Robin Crumby
Hurst Castle is the setting for a recently released dystopian thriller written by local author Robin Crumby.
The story focuses on a group of survivors living at Hurst, on the South Coast of England, following the outbreak of a pandemic virus.

Book Review ~ Sitting Dead Red #baseball @JDDudycha

This is what I came here for. This is why I play the game.
Sitting Dead Red by J.D. Dudycha

This is his chance.
Recruited by a collegiate summer baseball team, Royce Thorne can finally break free from his dysfunctional past. Every swing of the bat becomes an opportunity to strike at the terrors that lurk beneath the surface. When he steps into the light of the baseball diamond, the shadows of his shame disappear—until the game is over. Then they swirl around him like thick rain clouds before a doubleheader, threatening to ruin everything. The ghost of his mother, the death of a teammate, the abuse of his father, and the impending outcome of an alleged cheating scandal bring him to a critical juncture in his young life.Will he continue to spiral, or will he discover the power of forgiveness?
Sitting Dead Red is more than a baseball story. It’s a story of a redemptive life.

Second? What? Second’s for guys with good gloves but a weak arm. No. I don’t want to play second.

What did I think of the …
