Blog Tour: Review-Tanya J. Peterson’s Leave of Absence

Blog Tour: Review-Tanya J. Peterson’s Leave of Absence

What is normal? That’s one of the questions Tanya J. Peterson has us asking while we read Leave of Absence. It’s an engaging, heartbreaking read and if you only read one book this year, it HAS to be Leave of Absence. You won’t regret it and you’ll see the world a little differently. Peterson has done a phenomenal job writing about a taboo subject. In a world filled with science and understanding, you’d think we’d be more open to talking about mental health, but we shy away from it. Oliver Graham lost his wife and son in a terrible accident and blames himself for their deaths. Wanting to numb the terrible pain he attempts to commit suicide, but when his attempt is thwarted he’s taken to Airheaven Behavioral Center. There… Read more »

Cathryn Fox’s Hold Me Down Hard is a novella and even though it’s a light read, it’s a sizzling page turner. By the end, you’ll be looking at a police uniform a little differently. Eden is an actress and keeps her feelings for her neighbor Jay a secret. With the help of her friends, they invent a scenario to get Jay to see Eden as more than a friend. On the other side of the hallway, Jay has a nightly ritual of checking in on Eden. He tries to convince himself it is because he’s a cop and not because of his growing feelings for her.

Blog Tour: Guest Post & Giveaway-Arthur Gonzalez’s The Photo Traveler

Today, I have the honor of having Arthur Gonzalez as our guest author and it’s also our stop on The Photo Traveler blog tour. I asked Arthur to write about the memory he’d love to revisit since The Photo Traveler is about being able to time travel to a particular moment in time (provided there’s a physical photograph or drawing). I reviewed The Photo Traveler here and you can read my interview with Arthur here. I hope you take the opportunity to add The Photo Traveler to your TBR list and get lost with Gavin. I really liked the book and I hope you do too. Okay, let me gather a box of Kleenex real quick. Got it. My father passed away six years ago (it will be six years… Read more »
