~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My Review:

It's a romance very charming and interesting, I loved the theory of Dr. Weiss on soul mates.
Katie has discovered a passion for the study of the soul and reincarnation, thanks to her friend Marie. They spend many afternoons talking about books of  DR Weiss and to compare their opinions. But her husband Ward is not strongly agree because it steals time to their relationship. Katie is already very out of house because of her new work in center. Katie wants more help for household chores but Ward doesn't help at all. To brighten her days thinks a very nice guy that meets every day on the train going to and coming back from work. He was recently moved and she discovers also that he works in her own palace. And if he was her true soul mate?
It is addictive and a total page turner, the pace is very fast and smooth thanks to very short sentences. The plot is well constructed and intrigued and characters are warm and charming.
I really enjoyed this book and recommend it to all fans of contemporary romance, especially those who like like romantic and spiritual stories




~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT:

“I want you to think about some things over the next few days and weeks. I want you to clearly look inside yourself and ask what it is you want, not what anyone else wants or expects from you. Meditate on it. Pray on it, if that works for you. But make sure that any action you do or do not take is based on what is right and good for you. Not Katie. But the real and true you. You’re starting to see her in your life on a daily basis. Talk to her. Find out what she wants you to do. Then follow through on your heart and soul decision. Only then can you know that what you are doing is right for you, the true you. Not Catherine, not Elinor, not Katie, or any other human body you have inhabited. Do what is right for the authentic and real you.”

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

I am a CPA, CGA and live in Southern Ontario. After working for many years in the high pressure worlds of banking and IT, I decided that it was time to have a change in pace. Leaving Toronto behind I embarked on a new career in retail sales. The change was wonderful, but I felt something was missing.

Then, the unthinkable happened, and I was widowed at 46. That was a truly life altering experience. In time, I was introduced to the books and work of Dr. Brian Weiss. I discovered in his research a new purpose in life, and was driven to start writing, something I had always enjoyed, but never thought of as a career choice.

And now here we are in 2015, and my first novel is ready to be published. My second, also in the Past Lives series, will follow shortly.  I continue to write and dream of a future that I had never even considered in my wildest dreams.

Synopsis

I’m having the suckiest day ever. First, my father, aka Mr. Grumpy Pants, calls to say his nurse just walked out on him. Likely story. I rush home to pack only to walk in on my husband getting it on with his younger, skanky secretary. Unfortunately, my quick weekend trip home to fix Dad’s problems turns into a stay of a few weeks. Luckily, I’ve got Danny, the neighbor boy I had a crush on when I was a dorky, braces-wearing, nose-buried-in-a-book teenager, and a brand-spanking new blog to keep my mind off things. Before I know it, I’m writing product reviews of vibrators and getting questioned by a store rent-a-cop at the world’s worst date ever. All while trying to figure out how to take things with Danny to the next level. Not to complicate things or anything but my boss decides to give me an ultimatum – come back in four weeks or don’t come back at all. How in the world did my life get so complicated?

My Review

It 's a really funny romance, well written in an easy-to-read style which is just what I need at the end of a busy day.
The cantankerous father of Molly has chased away another caregiver. She has  to leave suddenly for Wisconsin to solve the problem. But coming home earlier than expected finds her husband on the couch with his secretary. He argues that it's just fun, that is fault of  Molly who is always traveling but she doesn't agree While trying to find a new person to take care of her father, she enjoys the company of her handsome neighbor and her adolescent crush, Danny. Molly also has the brilliant idea to start a blog "the misadventures of Molly." Will he find serenity and a man who loves her?
Molly is a great character and very realistic. She's funny, smart, a little insecure. I loved her blog, I'd love to write like her. Her father is a sprightly old grouch, very sexist (women only have to wash the dishes) but very affectionate with his princess. Danny is so charming and sexy, easy to fall in love with him.
I loved this book and once I started I could not put it down. Each pages leaves me with a smile on my face. It is an entertaining and relaxing read, is full of fun.
Very enjoyable for great beach reading or a break from routine.



D.E. HAGGERTYAbout The Author

I grew up reading everything I could get my hands on from my mom’s Harlequin romances to Nancy Drew to Little Woman. When I wasn’t flipping pages in a library book, I was penning horrendous poems, writing songs no one should ever sing, or drafting stories which have thankfully been destroyed. College and a stint in the U.S. Army came along, robbing me of free time to write and read, although I did manage every once in a while to sneak a book into my rucksack between rolled up socks, MRIs, t-shirts, and cold weather gear. A few years into my legal career, I was exhausted, fed up, and just plain done. I quit my job and sat down to write a manuscript, which I promptly hid in the attic after returning to the law. Another job change, this time from lawyer to B&B owner and I was again fed up and ready to scream I quit, which is incredibly difficult when you own the business. Thus, I shut the B&B during the week and in the off-season and started writing. Several books later I find myself in Istanbul writing full-time.

EARNING A RING
More Than A Game #4
Kristina Mathews
Releasing on January 19, 2016.
Lyrical Shine


For Rachel Parker, covering the San Francisco Goliaths is the perfect opportunity to launch her career as a serious reporter. But she didn’t bargain on Bryce Baxter, the team’s star shortstop, tempting her more non-professional aspirations. After tearing up the base paths with him, she finds herself with a little problem, and Bryce might be the only man who can save the game.

Bryce Baxter should be living the dream. His team just won the World Series and he just signed the multi-year contract of his career. But his field of dreams has been overtaken by a fiery redheaded reporter, who’s bearing a news flash that will change both of their lives forever…


My Review


A romantic story set in the world of baseball, how can one not love this book? I very much enjoyed it and I loved Bryce and Rachel.
Bryce is a famous baseball player and has just signed a contract very advantageous. Rachel is a sporting reporter who is about to start a promising career. A history between them could ruin their careers, especially that of Rachel: a journalist can't flirt with an athlete. Gossip could destroy them. But the attraction and passion between them is much stronger than fear, impossible to resist and commit a serious mistake. Rachel is pregnant. Bryce has no intention of backing out. Already he has a nine year old daughter who sees a few times a year and this time he wants to be a present father. But how can save Rachel's career? Maybe he has found a way to save it, just has to convince her.
It 's really well written and engaging. The plot catch you and keeps you glued to the pages. There are really romantic scenes and a dreamy marriage proposal, I really wanted to be Rachel in that moment.
Bryce is awesome, charming, rich and famous. He has a terrible marriage ended behind him and will not commit himself more. But he realizes that without Rachel can no longer stand. Rachel loves her independence and doesn' want his money nor a shotgun wedding. She wants a father for her son and a man who loves her. They are two great characters, I loved every second I spent with them.
It's the fourth book in the series "More Than A Game" but each book may be enjoyed as a stand-alone novel.I have read only the last two books, I have to find time to go back to the beginning and read this series from the start.
I have no hesitation in recommending it highly.
