Books of the Week - August 23rd

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.

Side note: This week is our version of "The Hills" :)

"Saving Grace"
By J.M. Hill

Grace Burke doesn’t need a thing. She enjoys her quiet life in Fall Rivers, Colorado—running a bookstore and coffee shop with her cousin, Kate. The two have a successful business, a small circle of friends, and each other. What more could she want? When the Anderson brothers move into the house across the street, it doesn’t take long for her to realize exactly what she’s been missing. At first sight the youngest brother, Michael, captures Grace’s heart, and her quiet life is disrupted.

Then it turns upside down. Grace isn’t the only one with eyes for Michael. Nina Sandler, one of Michael’s clients, threatens to come between them. When Nina can’t get Michael’s attention, she focuses on Grace—in a very dangerous way. Love is never easy and if the best things in life are worth fighting for, then Grace must find the courage to fight. Not just for love and happiness, but for her very life.

Two families find each other and bond into an extended family most people only dream of, while unexpected lessons are learned about friendship, family, love, and the depth of true beauty.

"Saving Grace" is $3.99 for Kindle.

"Idol Hands"
By Cynthia Hill

Tara’s life has not gone the way she thought it would: she had big plans for university, and a career, but instead, at thirty-two she’s a community college drop-out, married to a washed-up high school athlete, and working in a dead-end retail sales job. She can pinpoint the moment that everything in her life changed: it was when she fell in love with Aidan Forrest – who just happened to be a part of the biggest boy band in the world, Idol Hands. In a relationship that always had to be a closely-guarded secret, she spent two years hiding from the media to protect his career, until he broke up with her, and broke her heart in the process, leaving behind a secret that Tara has never shared.

When she sees Aidan on a television documentary about the now-defunct band, saying that breaking up with her was a mistake, and that he still loves her, she makes a life-changing, spur-of-the-moment decision that will change her life, and the lives of everyone around her.
