South to Alaska

By Nancy Owens Barnes / Genre: Biographies & Memoirs / Rating: 4.6 out of 5 stars

South to Alaska

“Nancy Owens Barnes does a great job in “South to Alaska” capturing the story of her father and his trek to Alaska.”

Born in the dusty heart of Oklahoma in 1916, ten-year-old Melvin sees a photograph of a cabin in the Alaska wilderness in his fourth-grade geography book and dreams of living there. Nearly fifty years later he builds a 47-foot boat in his Arkansas backyard, launches it on the Arkansas River, and cruises 10,000 miles to Alaska by way of the Panama Canal. Melvin has never been south of the United States/Mexico Border and has never been on a boat in the open ocean.

“Learn by doing,” he says.

In South to Alaska, author Nancy Owens Barnes takes readers on two journeys. On one, readers follow a young boy’s dream that begins in a one-room, Oklahoma schoolhouse in 1926, and ends decades later on an island in southeast Alaska. On the other, readers become a passenger aboard the Red Dog as it cruises along the Arkansas and Mississippi Rivers to the Gulf of Mexico where, in 1973, Melvin begins a solo journey along the Caribbean coasts of Mexico and Central America, through the Panama Canal, then into the Pacific Ocean to Alaska. Plagued by mechanical problems, international fraud, violent ocean storms, threats of foreign jail, illness and loneliness, Melvin fears a deadly end before reaching the place of his dreams and returning to the woman he loves.

To Love A Witch

To Love A Witch

“I really loved this story and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a light, fun, romantic reading experience with magic added in.”

Contemporary romance with a touch of magic…

Jake thought he had a juvenile delinquent witch in need of rescue. Romy couldn’t decide if he was a kidnapper, liar, or too good to be true. Throw in Tattoo Boy, sparking fingers, and a seven-year-old who can see the future, and you have all the makings for a romance.

Really. Well, there’s some really great linguine and a duet from West Side Story, too.

By Linda Welch / Genre: Horror, Mystery & Thrillers / Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Along Came a Demon

“You don’t want to miss this kickoff into a new universe.”

The departed aren’t the only supernaturals I see. No, they’re not vampires or werewolves or fae – those things don’t exist. We live side by side with what some call the Otherworldy. That’s too much of a mouthful for me, I call them demons. If you saw them as I do, you’d know why.

Right now I’m trying to track down a missing six year-old boy whose mother was murdered. Or maybe she wasn’t. To further complicate the case, Clarion PD gave me a partner I’d rather shoot than work with.

I can’t tell them he’s a demon. They’d think I’m crazy. I’m Tiff Banks. Welcome to my world.

Ninth Crossing: Discovery

By Kate Gordon / Genre: Romance, Fantasy / Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Ninth Crossing: Discovery

“This has a good mix of romance and magic.”

Reagan Sullivan is a thoroughly modern woman. She’s thirty-one, an honors graduate of Yale, and a six year veteran of the Secret Service, sworn to protect the vice president of the United States—who happens to be a widower. A good looking widower. Despite these accolades—and distractions—Agent Sullivan is a no-nonsense woman in every respect.

Her younger sister, Heather, currently a Rhodes Scholar PhD. candidate and an Olympic rowing medalist, is also a product of the twenty-first century. Together they’re an unbeatable combination … and not bad on the eyes either.

When Reagan meets two Irish elves—one of whom kidnaps her from a ladies bathroom in Oslo, Norway—all bets are off. These elves are nothing like you imagine. Both are well over six feet and strikingly handsome. And both think Reagan is quite fetching herself. And they’re not guarding a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, but they do have a twinkle in their eyes and romance in their hearts.

The Adventures of Bindi Girl

By Erin Reese / Genre: Biographies & Memoirs, Travel / Rating: 4.6 out of 5 stars

The Adventures of Bindi Girl

“To me, this book is as close as it gets to actually being on the road.”

Packed with plenty of spicy curry, cows, and comedy, Bindi Girl takes us on one heck of a wild ride across India. From Dharamsala and the Dalai Lama to ashrams, yoga schools, and meditation melodramas, Bindi educates and entertains as she goes. We discover the Hindu deities, the tourist trap mafia, and the beach havens of the hippie trail. From “Guru Disney” to the holy hell of Varanasi, Bindi’s got us clamoring for more masala chai all the way.

When Bindi meets an attractive young stranger who is more than her mental and physical match, her fiery spirit is put to the test. He whisks her off to the furthest reaches of India—the Andaman Islands in the Bay of Bengal. There, in an isolated jungle, they attempt to live out a Robinson Crusoe fantasy. Will it be the Garden of Eden or end up a natural disaster? Among the wild beauty and danger of the islands and the kooky madness of “typical India,” Reese takes us deep into the heart of a country and her very self.

Bindi Girl is a gift to the traveler, the spiritual seeker, and the armchair tourist—anyone yearning for honest inspiration and a real kick to get out and truly live!
