Books of the Week--May 3rd

Thanks for checking out our newest feature...Books of the Week! There are seven of us and we can't keep up with the many review requests we receive, even though we'd love to read everything sent our way. Therefore, we have decided to give some books their time in the spotlight and introduce you to them through this new blog feature. We will be featuring two books a week. We hope you will take the time to check these books out. (Click the titles to find them on Amazon.) If you read them and want to write a guest blogger review for us, please e-mail us and we'll be glad to work with you!

Authors: We will let you know whether or not we'll be able to review your book upon your request, and hope you'll be interested in this feature as an alternative.

"The Break-up Test"
By Rose McClelland

“Fresh, funny, fab...The Break-up Test is the new Bible..”

Amy skips round to see Gav for a mid-afternoon romp. Maybe one day he’ll actually fall in love with her? Beth stares at her phone. Anytime soon it will light up like the Blackpool Illuminations, and Karl will finally get in touch about that drink. Sarah can’t believe it’s turned into one of THOSE stories you read about in women’s weeklies. Then Jamie comes along with his Break-Up Test and turns their lives upside down. Will Gav, Karl and Stephen suddenly sniff the competition and clean up their acts? And what exactly is in it for Jamie?

"What Happiness Looks Like"
By Karen Lenfestey

Joely Shupe had a vision of what her thirties would look like: she’d be the mother of two, finger painting with her kids during the day and cooking dinner for her loving husband at night. Instead, the onset of lupus robbed her of her optimism and her chance for happily ever after. Now she’s a single mother unable to provide for her young daughter.

To make matters worse, her ex-fiancĂ©, Jake, shows up--unemployed and reeling from a personal tragedy. He claims he’s ready to parent the daughter he abandoned five years ago. Joely is more interested in Dalton, a devoted father to his own son, who offers to take care of her the way no man ever has. Should Joely risk her daughter bonding with someone new or with the man who broke her heart?

One thing is for sure: this is not the life Joely expected. Is it time to adjust her idea of what happiness looks like?

"What Happiness Looks Like" is available on Kindle for $2.99. Also, check out Karen's first novel, "A Sister's Promise," about a woman who makes a promise to her dying sister that might tear apart her own marriage. (Available for $2.99 on Kindle, as well.)
