This just in, fair readers! Chic and stunning, that gorgeous new woman about town is none other than our very own little Ellie—now Elle—Owens. She's a far cry from the frumpy, bookish student we used to know, but then, living in Italy will do that to a girl! Still, this blogger can't forget the infamous video that caused her to leave! 
Apparently Miss Elle has been spotted with yummy contractor Cam Dumont…but we thought her heart belonged to his little brother. Are Cam and Elle a new couple? They were seen cooling their passions in the bay…in April! If this is love, let's hope she's swimming with the right brother. The Bayside Blogger will keep you posted.

Describe yourself in five words or less.
I can do this in just one little word: sparkly!
Can you tell us a little about your book?
The Saved by the Blog series is about a small town on the Chesapeake Bay called Bayside. As small towns tend to do, Bayside is prone to gossip and rumors. They have a gossip blogger called the Bayside Blogger who writes for the local paper and reports every detail on every person in town.
Falling for the Right Brother is the first book in the three-part series. It’s a combination of Sabrina and Gossip Girl, with a little Saved by the Bell thrown in for fun. This is the story of Elle Owens, who was desperately in love with Jasper Dumont when she was growing up in Bayside, Virginia. After an embarrassing incident of professing her love for Jasper was caught on video, Elle hightailed it to Italy. When she returns to Bayside ten years later, it’s Jasper’s older brother Cam who catches Elle’s eye. Unfortunately, all of this happens under the watchful eye of the ubiquitous Bayside Blogger.
Name three things on your desk right now.
Not just right now, but pretty much at all times, I have my phone. I love listening to music while I work, so I either pull up a playlist I made, an album or listen to the radio through an app. I always have water because I’m a water-holic. And I typically have Post-it notes or some kind of paper because I’m constantly making lists (for my real life) and scribbling notes (for my writing life).
If you could have dinner with any three authors (alive or dead), who would you choose and why?
Jill Shalvis, because I’m a total fan girl. I love, love, love her books. Plus, based on her social media and newsletter, I think she’d be really fun to hang with.
Jane Austen, because I adore her books. I also consider her to be the first great chick lit writer and I want to ask her about some of the remakes/homages to her books like Clueless and Bridget Jones’s Diary. I think she would love them.
JK Rowling, because I’m a huge fan of Harry Potter and her world-building ability. Also, whenever I’m having a bad writing time, I re-watch the interview she did with Oprah for the millionth time. Her description of depression is so spot-on that it actually helped me deal with my own issues.
Where did the inspiration for this book come from?

I was walking my dog, Harry, one afternoon and the idea for Falling for the Right Brother popped into my head. I could see the town of Bayside, Elle and Cam, everything, so clearly. I remember very distinctly having the thought: This is like Sabrina and Gossip Girl. It was strange because I hadn’t seen either in years. I thought about the story the entire time I was walking Harry and as soon as I got home, I started writing it.

Do you have any advice to give to aspiring writers?
  1. Join a writer’s group and hang out with like-minded people. Learn the craft, take classes, talk to writers who are in a position you’d like to emulate.
  2. Get friends who are not writers, will never be writers and have nothing to do with the writing world. They will keep you grounded.
  3. Invest in a crock-pot. Trust me on this one. The time you save in the kitchen can translate to many words written.
  4. Exercise!
  5. Learn how to say this incredibly difficult, yet incredibly small word: NO.
  6. Learn how to say YES. Yes, I will finish this book. Yes, I will submit it to publishers and/or agents. Yes, I will enter this contest.
  7. Never. Give. Up.
Is there anything that you would like to say to your readers and fans?
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

























Falling for the Right Brother by Kerri Carpenter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I absolutely adored Elle and Cam's story! They fit perfectly. I love the back story and how they both grew. The chemistry between the two was evident within the first few pages of the book. It wasn't your typical long drug out getting to know each other before the realized they loved each other. This book was a comical well written romance. They both new the attraction was there and embraced it. I couldn't put it down. I had to know exactly what angle the Bayside Blogger was going to use next to try and get these two realize that this relationship was worth the risk and was going places. I can't wait to get my hands on the next one. Thank you Kerri Carpenter for this wonderful piece of entertainment.

Review... The Secret's She Kept by Brenda Novak

Novak done it again.... The secrets that are in the book is astonishing. I felt like I watching a very intense drama film while turning the pages of this book! I absolutely loved to find out all of Josephine's secrets and was quite stunned by some of them. Seeing Keith has changed so much and recovered from his addiction was a blessing. Getting to know Rocki a little more and getting inside her head. Finding out about Josephine's multiple lovers. This book will keep you intrigued all they way to the end. I couldn't put it down. I just couldn't get enough of it! I absolutely loved it. I do wish Nancy had a little more will power when it came to Keith just to show him all he had put her through. Yet when you love someone that's hard, it just shows how human she actually is. I loved my trips to Fairhaim. Take yours today!

Review.... Hometown Hero's Redemption by Jill Kemerer

Forgiveness is the only way that any of us will ever be able to truly move forward with our lives. In this book Lauren must forgive the man whom made high school horrible for her, as well as herself for a burden in which she insist is her fault. We have to realize that we aren't responsible for everyone else's actions. We can help other's but those other's have to want the help. If someone is not willing to help themselves we will be wasting our time. Lauren takes own helping a child in a profession she refused to do again. This child is damaged in more ways than he is willing to let someone in to see. The challenges she faces in this story are so inspiring with the way they are overcame. This book inspired me in many ways. As a person who lost a mother to murder at a young age Jill hit every emotion I was feeling with the way she described the grief Wyatt was undergoing. The feelings he felt toward Drew who was his guardian. The anger he felt toward his father for not…

Hello I hope you all are doing well. Today I have for you the first giveaway on my Book review blog. I am a new blogger hoping to grab your attention and entertain you with New and Early releases of Harlequin Novels! I love to read and I love to let other's know how I feel about the books I am reading.

Who do you share your books with? Who gave you your first Romance book? I have been reading as long as I can remember. I started with the Babysitter's Club and worked my way from there. My first Romance Book was the summer of my 8th grade year of school. I spent the summer in Texas with my Aunt. I had been reading V.C. Andrews Orphan Series. She took me to a used book store right down from her home. I was in absolute HEAVEN! I traded in some of my books for other's. In this trade I got A Time To Die by Lurlene McDaniel. I fell in love with Romance from there.

Today I read a wide range of books from Romance to Sci-fi as long as a boo…
