Blurb: Jade Sommers should be dead, really there is no doubt about it, the impact of the car accident she was in alone should have killed her and if that didn't then the fire that followed would have definitely done the job. However someone needed to tell her body that, because as she watched it in the mirror it healed right before her eyes.

The pacing, the content, the syntax is spot on and the elements that make up the story make it one of a kind and is defiantly worth the time I took to read it, what more can I say!
Recommendation: Read this! it's a really good book I promise!

Blurb:FOR THREE DAYS, IT WAS DARK.
News reporters scrambled. This was the biggest story to come along in weeks.
They called it a blackout.
The last one was in New York City in 2003, but this one was different, special, because the grids in six major cities across the country had been fried, kaput, see-you-next-Sunday. Everyone with some jurisdiction blamed each other, and when there was no one left to blame, terrorism rode in on its gallant steed.
It was the media’s fault. They were so busy stuffing fanatical Muslims with a penchant for Allah and decapitations down the American citizen’s throat, that they never saw it coming. I guess I shouldn’t be too hard on them.
They were partially right.
It was terror after all, but a whole new kind. And when the lights came back on, things had changed.
The dark had brought us visitors.
Review: I'm not a huge fan of horrors, I don't particularly like scaring the bejeezus out of myself while reading but I did want to review this book. If I say I didn't like it trust me its not because its a bad book. Turns out even now I don't have the heart to read an excellent Horror without freaking.

Contemporary Romance/Women's Fiction
Title: The Restaurant
Author: Linn B. Halton
Date to be Published: 8/2/12
Publisher: Sapphire Publishing
Blurb: Age, relationships, and careers – we are all unique. Yet beneath the exterior facade we choose
to show to the world at large, what do we have in common? The things we bury deep inside; the
worries and fears we are unable to verbalise, and the hand fate takes in our lives is a common
thread. Sometimes we fail to recognise in each other that innermost struggle on the path to true
Six very different stories, six couples linked by The Restaurant @ The Mill, owned by Hilary
Marks and Ben Adams. As the restaurant thrives the atmosphere is alive with conversation,
snapshots of lives unfolding; each one a personal journey.
I ended up reading this in one sitting and it was worth dropping all my other stuff to read!
Excrept: When your family is affected by a tragedy, you find yourself in the midst of emotions that are so strong it’s almost impossible to keep a grasp on normal life. The tragedy happened to my sister, Mya, who was driving home one dark night in the pouring rain. The car that hit hers swerved to avoid a cyclist whose wheel had struck a pothole, and the effects of that night spread out like ripples on a pond to catch us all.

Guest Post by M.M Shelly
Mythology in YA books
HI Everyone, I'm M.M. Shelley and I would like to thank Bajan Rosa for having me as a guest today. So please pour yourself a cup of your favorite Latte and if you're at work, hang up your "On Break" shingle as we take five.
I may love writing young adult fantasy and Sci-fi, but it doesn't mean that it's my first love. Growing up I stirred more towards mysteries written by the great Agatha Christie and the clever Edgar Allen Poe. Slowly but surely I found authors like Johanna Lindsay and Julie Garwood and those two quickly became some of my favorite authors. Sure you might wonder, what an interesting mix of authors, but really isn't a good book defined by losing yourself in the story?
I enjoy mixing a good mystery with romance and sometimes paranormal romance. That I've found myself reading books by Dianne Day and Heather Graham who also writes under the name Shannon Drake.
What I like about the young adult genre is that everything is new, exciting and the characters are always rushing, in a hurry and are willing to hold on tightly to what they want regardless of the consequences. There is an innocence that at times can be heartbreaking and enduring.
With the young adult genre there is more room for possibilities as they are ready and willing to believe in the possibilities of what we all enjoy; intrigue, magic and most importantly, love.
With my book, Mishap & Retribution I focus on the suspense, and the intrigue, what will one do for the ones they love? Sometimes the answer is not what you may always expect and that's what I enjoy about writing young adult; is that you learn to expect the unexpected.
So who are some of your favorite authors? I'd love to hear from you!

Accompanied by his ex-girlfriend and business partner, Alison Herne, he is making a living as a jack-of-all-trades running a security company, sailing charters, and even photographing weddings out of Dolliber Cove, Massachusetts. Connor's world is finally coming back together until they find one of Alison's ghost hunter friends murdered.
When a childhood love he thought was dead, appears on his doorstep during their investigation, Connor is forced to confront memories he convinced himself were the delusions of a man deep into grief.

After Alison is almost killed confronting her occult past, it is impossible for Connor to deny the connection between the cases. Someone is attempting to end Connor's life and the lives of all those who surround him.
The crazed rantings of the murderous cult may be the key to his survival.
My Review: Wow what can I say from the start of this book I was at the edge of my seat. It was one of those books where you are not only the reader but you are the character.
There are emotional parts and parts where you may find yourself smiling. But don't get me wrong this book is a thriller and a very good one at that.
My Recommendation: This book is for anyone who enjoys this genre

Title: 29 and A half Reasons
Genre: Romance, Supernatural
Blurb: When Rose reports for Fenton County jury duty she figures she's lucky to
get out of a morning working at the DMV. Instead, despite a disastrous
encounter with the new assistant district attorney, Mason Deveraux, she's
picked as a juror on a murder case. As the trial progresses, she realizes
an ominous vision she had in the men's restroom proves the defendant is
innocent. And there's not a cotton picking thing she can do about it.
Or is there?
As if things weren't bad enough, Rose's older sister Violet is going
through a mid-life crisis. Violet insists that Rose stop seeing her sexy
new boyfriend, Arkansas state detective Joe Simmons and date other men.
Rose is done letting people boss her around, but she can't commit to Joe
either. Still, Rose isn't about to let the best thing in her life slip away
My review: From the first page of this book I was intrigued. I'm not a huge fan of mystery or romantic suspense but this book is one I enjoyed. It is both of these and neither. There is enough humor packed in to keep you satisfied as well as both romance and drama.
The characters are very well developed especially the heroin Rose. The pace was relaxed and fluid and they were a few surprises thrown in for good measure.
My Recommendation: If you are looking for a good mystery with supernatural elements and romance this is definitely the book for you!
My Rating: 5/5 roses
