All That Ails You: The Adventures of a Canine Caregiver

Every dog deserves a forever home, and after being mistreated and given up several times, Wrigley has finally found his. The good-natured, smart mutt now spends his days as the house dog at SunRidge Assisted Living, comforting and doting on forty-five seniors. Happily, Wrigley has free run of the place, going where he senses he’s needed, but his preferred spot is beside his favorite resident, Marjorie Thompson.

A big shift comes to SunRidge, when a cranky curmudgeon named Walter Kepson moves in across the hall from Marjorie. Having arrived reluctantly, at the urging of his son, Walter can’t stand Wrigley or anything else for that matter.

But life has a way of making strange bedfellows, and after a series of dramatic, unforeseen events, Walter becomes indebted to Wrigley. His initial method of repayment—giving Wrigley lots of treats—perfectly suits the food-motivated house dog. But Wrigley is interested in more than just satisfying his unending appetite. He senses that Walter needs him and sees the old man as being similar to a neglected shelter dog, who if shown love, will reciprocate it.

Before long, Wrigley softens Walter in a way only a dog can, and eventually helps bridge the gap between him and his son. Walter responds in kind by allowing Wrigley onto his furniture, and ultimately, into his heart.

Told in Wrigley’s voice, All That Ails You is an endearing story about the power of a dog’s love, when we need it most, and healing the strained relationship between a parent and a child before it’s too late.

Sovereign Hope (The Hope Series)

By Frankie Rose / Genre: Fantasy, Romance / Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars (56 reviews)

Sovereign Hope (A Young Adult Paranormal Romance) (The Hope Series)

Everyone has a soul.

Some are just worth more than others.

Farley Hope was seventeen when her mother disappeared. In the last six months not much has changed, except that her eighteenth birthday came and went and still no sign of Moira. Her life is just as complicated as it always was: since her father died in a car crash before she was even born, she’s officially parentless, and to top it all off she’s still suffering from the hallucinations. Mind-splitting, vivid hallucinations- the kind prone to induce night terrors and leave you whimpering under your covers like a baby.

The last thing on her mind is boys. Farley is on break from St. Judes’ when she meets Daniel. It’s not some casual run in at a party, or even a blind date with friends, though. Daniel is the guy stalking her in his 1970′s Dodge Charger; the guy standing at her window in the LA lunch hour traffic, determined on dragging her out of her truck.

The moment Farley lays eyes on Daniel, everything changes. However, regrettably for Farley, her life isn’t set to change for the better. She is drawn into a world that will shake apart everything she thought she ever knew. There are truths out there that she must learn: who her father really was, and what it means to have his blood flowing through her veins; that a person’s soul is their only real currency, and there are people who would do anything to take hers; that loving someone can hurt so much more than hating them; but, most importantly, when your future is predestined, there is little you can do to change it.

Farley Hope is prophesied.

Her coming has been awaited for hundreds of years.

She is destined to end the tyranny of the Soul Reavers.

To do so she must die.
