She Was at Risk (Zachary Goldman Mysteries Book 10) by P.D. Workman

She Was at Risk by P. D. Workman is Book 10 in the Zachary Goldman Mysteries Series but it is written in such a way that it can be read as a standalone. I have read other books in the series, so I am acquainted with the characters, but I could have easily read this book and enjoyed it without having had read the other books first. Having said that, I did enjoy the first books and would definitely recommend that you read those as well.

Zachary Goldman is a Private Investigator with quite a history of his own. He has a trail of abuse and mental issues that have followed him from childhood into adulthood. Somehow, he has managed to survive and turn his life around, becoming an accomplished photographer and starting a business as a Private Investigator. But his demons can come out at the worst of times and the challenges he faces can be his undoing.

In She Was at Risk, Zachary received a phone call from Gordon- who is the man who married Zachary’s ex wife, Bridget. Gordon wanted to meet with Zachary to hire him. Knowing that the last time Zachary worked for Gordon, Bridget became very agitated and threatened to have him arrested if he came anywhere near her again, Zachary really didn’t want to become involved with Gordon. Then again, Zachary can’t help himself, he’s drawn like a moth to a flame. If he works for Gordon, he might be able to see Bridget, even if only for a moment, and a moment would be worthwhile.  But what Gordon has to tell him shocks him to the core. There is something wrong with a test they had done with the twins Bridget is carrying. A possibility of them having Huntington’s Disease, even in later life, has shocked both Gordon and Bridget and now they don’t know what to do. After undergoing cancer treatment and freezing her eggs, it was a miracle that she was able to conceive. Gordon is concerned because neither he nor Bridget have the gene that causes Huntington’s and this is why he has come to Zachary. Could Bridget have cheated on him with someone else?

Church People

We’ve all been over zealous at one time or another, trying to do things with our own power and might rather than to call upon the strength and wisdom of others who might know better. Sometimes, it’s false pride telling us that we know better, we don’t need anyone’s help, that we can do it ourselves. But we were designed to work together, not alone, and we are always to call upon the Lord for help. He wants us to trust Him with everything in our lives, no matter how small.

 In Church People, Pastor Guy has gotten used to doing things on his own. He has a flair for the showy sermons, and is well known as an entertaining pastor. But when he cuts short a speaking trip to rethink his priorities, he finds that things aren’t that easy to change. This movie will have you rethinking how you prioritize your worship time versus your me time. And just who is in charge when you go to tell others about Christ. This movie was entertaining to watch, with some funny parts and some serious parts. But the basic theme was easy to pick out from the rest of the stuff going on. We don’t go to church to be entertained, and our Pastors aren’t there to entertain. We are there to learn, to grow, and to encourage one another. Church is where we refresh before going back out to spread His Word. I appreciated the underlying message and thought that it was a good way to share it.

Along with the movie is a 5 part bible study that goes along with the theme of the Here’s. It includes a video clip from the movie, scripture verses, a short devotional, and discussion questions to read and discuss with your group. Here is an example of the video clips that go with the discussion questions:

He Never Forgot By P.D. Workman

He Never Forgot is the 9th book in the Zachary Goldman Mysteries Series but it is written in such a way that it can be read as a standalone. I have read other books in the series, so I am acquainted with the characters, but I could have easily read this book and enjoyed it without having had read the other books first. Having said that, I did enjoy the first books and would definitely recommend that you read those as well.

Zachary Goldman is a Private Investigator with quite a history of his own. He has a trail of abuse and mental issues that have followed him from childhood into adulthood. Somehow, he has managed to survive and turn his life around, becoming an accomplished photographer and starting a business as a Private Investigator. But his demons can come out at the worst of times and the challenges he faces can be his undoing.

In He Never Forgot, Zachary is approached by Ben Burton, who has a curious request. He was adopted at a young age and he doesn’t remember anything about his birth parents, but he wants Zachary to help him find his childhood home. He can’t really explain why, he just feels compelled to see it again. Without much of anything to go on; no last name of his birth parents, no records, nothing to speak of, Zachary takes the case. But working with Ben isn’t easy. He has his own demons, and they come out every day in the form of drinking binges that render Ben mean, senseless, and hard to deal with. Then one day, something seems familiar and suddenly Ben begins to recognize things. Could this be where he lived as a child? And could there be a reason he had forgotten so much from his childhood?

This book was well written and dealt with some serious childhood abuse issues in a very straightforward way. The author does a good job of taking on many serious topics and building her plots around them, allowing her readers to see what’s behind the curtain so to speak. She does this with a delicate but honest manner, being truthful about what it’s like to live in the midst of such social issues as child abuse, drug and alcohol abuse, and many others. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in a book of a more serious subject matter.

First Lady in Charge by Tom Bierdz

I’ve read a few books by Mr Bierdz, but this book blew me away! It was like taking the The Bourne Identity, getting to the end and saying nope, I’m not done yet, then adding The Bourne Supremacy. Then deciding that still wasn’t enough and adding The Bourne Ultimatum onto the back end. Seriously, this was like a miniseries in length and I loved every word! This author does action and spy novels like he cut his teeth on Jack Higgins and Tom Clancy. His plots are fast paced and full of twists and turns. And the characters are so believable, especially when they aren’t working well with each other. He doesn’t always do the obvious, which is something I really like. In this book he took a little bit different direction. Instead of writing about spies and international intrigue, he wrote about the life of politicians. This book is a standalone so you don’t have to worry about reading another book first.

In this book, Layton and Janet Rood are the couple with the perfect partnership. They both know what they want and they’re willing to do whatever it takes to get there. Through lots of hard work and the ability to make a great impression on the public, Layton and his beautiful wife rise quickly to the top. But things aren’t always as they seem and the Roods are no exception. First Lady In Charge explores what happens when a relationship is put to the test while the whole country watches. This was an excellent book and I highly recommend it.

Simon Fayter and the King Alone by Austin Bailey

Simon Fayter and the King Alone

Simon Fayter and the King Alone is the 5th book in the Simon Fayter Series. This series has been enjoyable to follow along and see how the characters have evolved over time. I had no idea that there would be five books in the series, but it was like opening another surprise gift whenever I found out there was another book available. In Simon Fayter and the King Alone, we find Simon readying himself to go into battle with Rone. This is the big one, folks. Here, the winner will determine the fate of the world, and the fate of everyone. Rone and whoever follows him against the wizards and all of the magic that was and is and is to come.

First, Simon must reconnect with all of his friends. Some of them will journey with him- others he isn’t sure if they will make it out alive or not. For that matter, Simon isn’t sure anyone will make it. But there is much to learn. And learning will take many, many years. What? Yes, for a wizard to be able to open an allgate, they must study and learn how to channel their power so that it would flow seamlessly as one, rather than in separate pieces, which was how he had always been taught to use it. This book, as well as the other books in the Simon Fayter Series, can be read as a standalone, but it is so much more satisfying to read as a series. There is so much information that is shared from one book to the next, and it is so much fun to get to know the characters. I can’t imagine not reading the series in its entirety. Bravo to Mr. Bailey for a great series- well done!

She Told a Lie by P D Workman


She Told a Lie by P D Workman

She Told a Lie by P. D. Workman is the 8th book in the Zachary Goldman Mysteries Series but it is written in such a way that it can be read as a standalone. I have read other books in the series, so I am acquainted with the characters, but I could have easily read this book and enjoyed it without having had read the other books first. Having said that, I did enjoy the first books and would definitely recommend that you read those as well.

Zachary Goldman is a Private Investigator with quite a history of his own. He has a trail of abuse and mental issues that have followed him from childhood into adulthood. Somehow, he has managed to survive and turn his life around, becoming an accomplished photographer and starting a business as a Private Investigator. But his demons can come out at the worst of times and the challenges he faces can be his undoing.

In this book, Zachary is contacted by one of his past clients, whom he considers a friend, and asked to help out with a missing person case. A teenage girl has gone missing and nobody seems to be as concerned as Zachary’s friend is. But his friend, who is mute and communicates through his phone’s texting app, has information that leads him to believe there is more to the story than just a teen girl out having fun with her boyfriend. Once Zachary starts looking into the disappearance, he is convinced that there is something truly terrifying afoot, and getting involved could put himself as well as his friend in danger. Should he continue to investigate or take the police’s advice and leave it be?

This book, like all of the books I’ve read by Ms. Workman, is edgy, with gritty realism. The characters, although fictional, have a very real quality to them. The author does not shy away from difficult subject matter and she definitely does her research. I would definitely recommend this or any of the book sets by Ms. Workman.

Sambucol Black Elderberry Gummies

sambucol

Sambucol Black Elderberry Gummies give the same great Black Elderberry protection and benefits as their syrup, but in a fun and tasty gummy form instead of the traditional syrup. Each gummy has 50 mg of black elderberry extract with no artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners or preservatives. Two gummies is equal to 1 dose of Sambucol Black Elderberry Syrup, and will provide Vitamin C and Zinc as well. These products all work together to offer a boost of immunity against colds and the flu, helping to keep us healthy through the nastiest of seasons and keep everyone from missing work or school. I also feel better knowing that I have an extra leg up on the Corona Virus by making sure we’re all staying as healthy as we can possibly be, so we don’t fall victim to the first bug that comes along, then become sick easily when confronted with the virus.

Dangerous Games by Blair Howard

Dangerous Games

Dangerous Games by Blair Howard is one of those books you stay up late and wait in line for them to release so you can be the first to read it. It’s the Star Wars movie kind of book that everyone talks about the next day at school. It pits two arch enemies against each other, then forces them to work with each other against an enemy so diabolical that they agree that they need each other to destroy the force of evil that they’re up against. First, a kidnapping and a murder, then an invitation to work for his old handler send Al a.k.a. Nero back out into the streets to take down the Peacemakers, a group dedicated to taking over the world in their own twisted way. Along the way, he is paired with a French ex special forces operative named Lisette. Follow
these two as they go from one challenge to the next, ultimately finding that those they trusted weren’t what they seemed and some that they didn’t trust were on their side the whole time. Or were they? You decide.

VCNY 8 Piece Blue Floral Soft Washed Comforter Set with Dec Pillow and Bonus Sheet Set in King Size

vcny comforter

VCNY 8 Piece Floral Soft Washed Comforter Set with Dec Pillow and Bonus Sheet Set, Blue, King


I think finding the right bedding is a difficult choice. You have to take into consideration the preferences of whomever shares the sleeping quarters, then you have to think about colors, materials, how hot or cool you prefer to sleep, if you want a whole coordinated set or just a comforter and pillowcases. Gosh, no wonder I don’t like to change my bedding that often! Well, it was time, so I got this 8 piece Floral Comforter Set from VCNY. My set comes with the king size comforter, king size flat and fitted sheets, 2 king size pillow shams, 2 king size pillowcases, and 1 small decorative pillow. These are made of the softest cotton I’ve ever felt. I can’t wait to sleep on these sheets! I love the pattern- a lovely floral pattern in shades of blue. But what I really like is that if I get tired of the pattern and want something new and fresh, I just turn it over. Why? Because it’s reversible! So I can choose how I want to mix and match the pillowcases and shams, and I can use either side of the comforter. I’ve got a dozen comforter sets in one! Well, maybe not a dozen, but you know what I mean, right? This is only one of their beautiful patterns available and it’s washable, dryable, and snugglable (I made that up because it’s sooo soft!) I love it!

Kitchen Magic (Witches Academy Book 5) by Anna Celeste Burke

Kitchen Magic by Anna Celeste Burke is the 5th of 8 books in the Witches Academy series, which is a compilation of stories written by 8 different authors. 

Kitchen Magic (Witches Academy Book 5) by [Anna Celeste Burke, Witches Coven]
Kitchen Magic by Anna Celeste Burke

In Kitchen Magic, Muriel is the star of the leading TV cooking show, Kitchen Magic, where she and her partner, Claire, successfully make tasty foods while entertaining in front of a live audience. Sometimes things don’t go as planned and this is where we start; with Muriel making a delicious recipe but forgetting to let it cool before trying it and burning her mouth. Claire covers for her quickly and takes over the show, offering tastes of the recipe to the audience so that Muriel can get a drink and recover herself. Unfortunately, a stingy audience member decides not to share and starts hogging as many treats as possible. Muriel notices the audience getting rembunctious and performs a sneaky spell, then sidetracks the audience by mentioning that there’s something under their chairs for each of them to take home. The maneuver works and the show ends successfully and not a minute too soon. As everyone is leaving and the crew goes to shut down for the night, a body is discovered. What happens sets off a series of events that sends Muriel and her sidekick Claire down a trail that could end their lives or expose them as the witches they really are if they don’t watch how they act.

What a fun ride. This was a whimsical, romantic at times, spooky at other times, downright twisty turning mystery! The characters were so much fun- I can only hope we see more of them in the future. And I’d love to visit a town like Muriel and Claire live it. So quaint! Kudos to the author for a fun and light-hearted addition to this set!
