About the Book

 

"Great action, well-told, and authentic with all the nuances and spirit of small town Texas. Don't miss it." -Lone Star Literary Life Reviews


In this enigmatic follow up to his critically acclaimed debut novel The Cuts that Cure, Arthur Herbert returns to the Texas-Mexico border with this chilling mystery set amidst a small town’s bloody loss of innocence.

Amoret, Texas, 1982. Life along the border is harsh, but in a world where cultures work together to carve a living from the desert landscape, Blaine Beckett lives a life of isolation. A transplanted Boston intellectual, for twenty years locals have viewed him as a snob, a misanthrope, an outsider. He seems content to stand apart until one night when he vanishes into thin air amid signs of foul play.

Noah Grady, the town doctor, is a charming and popular good ol’ boy. He’s also a keeper of secrets, both the town’s and his own. He watches from afar as the mystery of Blaine’s disappearance unravels and rumors fly. Were the incipient cartels responsible? Was it a local with a grudge? Or did Blaine himself orchestrate his own disappearance? Then the unthinkable happens, and Noah begins to realize he’s considered a suspect.


Paced like a lit fuse and full of dizzying plot twists, The Bones of Amoret is a riveting whodunit that will keep you guessing all the way to its shocking conclusion.

 

 

 Read an Excerpt

 



While most of the group trudged behind Chebo with their heads down and mindful of their footing, the last person in line shuffled along staring in our direction, not looking where she was going. A slight woman, she appeared dazed, and as the rest of the group advanced, she lagged behind with her head up and eyes locked on the truck. Zombie-like, she scuffed her feet forward, arms dangling limply by her sides until she stumbled on the uneven ground and fell to her knees. She managed to get to her feet, but once upright her eyes stayed fixed on the vehicle like a lost sailor who’d suddenly located the North Star. Then, unnoticed by the group, she inexplicably peeled off at a tangent from their path, blazing her own trail through the underbrush on a beeline for the truck.


Her track took her ten feet from the group's conga line, then fifteen, then twenty. The brambles on her path became thicker. She tried to push through, eyes still up and unwavering as she willed herself forward, throwing one foot in front of the other with a shambling, Frankenstein gait.


The thorny vines clawed and scratched at her, yet she still churned forward robotically until eventually the underbrush won out. When the scrub became an impassable wall, she seemed to realize her predicament, but by that point her exhausted body and mind failed her. Unable to go forward, too fatigued to turn back, she went limp, without even the reserves to call for help, the sharp vines suspending her like a marionette.


I shouted at her, "¡No se muevea, no se muevea! ¡Le voy a ayudar!" Chebo had almost reached the highway’s asphalt when he heard me, and for the first time turned to see the straggler. I waved him off and made my way down the slope, then when the thorny scrub got too thick, faced backwards and folded my arms to push through to reach her.

Up close she seemed brittle, with buck teeth and wiry hair, pipe cleaner arms and sandals held together by duct tape. As I stripped away the brambles, her scratched face and glassy eyes drifted toward me, then turned back to rest on the matted spikey runners, unable to help me help her. I felt like I was releasing a rabbit from a snare.


Once I had her free, I hoisted her and pulled her in close to shield her bony frame as best I could, then waded backward up the slope as thorns clawed at me. Eventually the spiked vines thinned, and I could face forward again before taking the last few steps onto the pavement at a trot and gently depositing her on her feet. She stood stock still for a few moments, then shambled in the direction of the truck once again without acknowledging me. I followed, picking thorns from my hands and sucking at the worst of the scratches.

The Wrong Side of Murder Book Review & Book Tour Giveaway

I have always loved cozy mysteries and Lauren Carr is one of my favorite mystery authors in recent years. I have read books from each of her many series--and today, I have her latest from the Nikki Bryant series to share! Check out The Wrong Side of Murder, learn about the author the series, read my thoughts on the book & be sure to enter for a chance to win a prize in the book tour giveaway at the end of this post!


Book TitleThe Wrong Side of Murder (A Nikki Bryant Cozy Mystery) by Lauren Carr
Category:  Adult Fiction (18 +),  274 pages
Genre:  Mystery/Cozy Mystery
Publisher:  Acorn Book Services
Release date:   July 21, 2022
Content Rating: This cozy mystery is rated G for everyone!

The Wrong Side of Murder is another wonderful cozy mystery by author Lauren Carr. It has all the elements that draw me in - an intelligent female lead, an equally smart boyfriend who partners to help her, a complicated plot where clues are slowly revealed, people who aren't what they seem to be, comedic moments to balance the darker ones, and several quirky pets full of personality.  

It's a wonderful book to escape into at the end of the day. And get ready to read into the wee hours as, if you're like me, you won't be able to stop reading until the mystery is revealed.  
- Marilyn R. Wilson, Olio by Marilyn
 
Nikki's an intense individual who makes the perfect investigative journalist. She wants answers yesterday and she is willing to dig in to get them. She might get it wrong at the beginning but with the help of her family and close friends, she'll get the answers she wants and needs. – review by Blooming with Books

About the Book



Nikki Bryant’s Next Case Takes Her to the Wrong Side of Murder

One spring morning, Jodi Gibbons got up and went to school as she did every day. Her young life went sideways though when the police found that her mother had been brutally killed during the night.

Twenty years later, many in Pine Grove believe Jodi got away with murder. After all, how could she have possibly slept through her mother’s violent death in the very next room?
After decades of silence, Jodi accepts investigative journalist Nikki Bryant’s invitation to tell her side of the story. However, before the interview can take place, someone silences Jodi permanently.

Now it is up to Nikki Bryant and her friends to uncover the secret that Jodi Gibbons has been protecting—a secret someone believes it is worth killing to keep from being revealed.

 

My Review




The Wrong Side of Murder Keeps Readers Entertained and Guessing. I love the cozy mystery writing style that Carr brings to her stories. With multiple murders, well-placed plot twists, and a unique blend of quirky characters--she crafts a mystery that gives readers hints, makes them think they have solved things--then turns the path in a different direction. I love the bits of sarcasm and humor that keep the murder mysteries more light and clean. As with other books from the author, this one brings smiles from beginning to end.

 

Readers will find characters to love. Readers will find large casts of characters in Carr's stories--but will love the way the characters and pieces come together throughout to resolve the mysteries. I love the playfulness of the main characters. While murder is not a laughing matter--life often is. I love the humorous displays between Nikki and her family and friends--including furry friend Elmo.

  

Would I recommend The Wrong Side of Murder? If you enjoy light, clean, cozy mysteries, you should add this book and the series to your reading list. The novel is well-written, entertaining, fast-paced, and impossible to put down. I love that the story keeps me guessing and doubting myself through most of the book! I was sad to see this story end--but I look forward to another book in the series.

About the Book



A Plethora of Wealth - Knowledge - Insights, that will help you take over the World and Beyond!

Government and the Central Banks have been managing the economic business cycle for over 100 years, creating the biggest Ponzi scheme of money printing ever invented in the history of civilization, as we now find ourselves living in a precarious house of cards. By hallowing out our manufacturing, have we diminished our inventiveness? What role did China really play in this, and what role did our own selfish desire affect the outcome, and what was the trade-off?

Is this the beginning of the end of US monetary global dominance, and how long can we print fiat money to support the vestiges of a declining Empire? Is the cost of living going up, or is it because currency is rapidly depreciating? What is the true source of effective inflation, and why is the wealth divide becoming greater?

The pages of this book bring to light the roots of our economic order of today, and help explain the world around us, how we arrived here, and what might lie ahead.

The Practical MBA on Economics is comprehensive, fast-paced, making for magnificent theatre, full of spills and chills, from stock market crashes to sovereign debt default, to the 1944 Bretton Woods reset, the IMF, the WTO, U.S. Dollar reserve, and mercantilism. We come to meet the economic thinkers that shape our world today from Adam Smith, Richard Cantillon, John Maynard Keynes, David Ricardo, Murray Rothbard, and Milton Friedman.

With intellectual clarity, insights, wit and humour, Gulesserian challenges the narrative, simplifies complex economic ideas, and draws from historical events, to explain how we came to the current financial world order, its perils, and the future of tomorrow!

With compelling antidotes that entertain, filled with relevance and a library of knowledge that leaves the reader feeling full, and liberated to unlock the future. So, butter your popcorn, do fasten your seat belts, and enjoy the ride.  
 

My Review



The Practical M.B.A. on Economics Offers Value to All Readers. Let me begin by admitting that my husband has a strong background in economics, business, and finance--and has spent the last year suggesting that our two younger daughters explore the possibilities of adding M.B.A.s to their educational goals. Initially, I will also admit that I did not see the need for this if the girls had no interest in careers in business administration. After reading this book, I found a greater understanding of economic applications in our life (past and present)--and a greater appreciation for fostering that understanding in my daughters. This book presents much information to readers. While it looks a bit economic textbook-like--the actual text brings real-world examples, ideas, and analysis to the economic concepts introduced--offering readers a practical understanding of the material.

 

Short sections introduce loads of information. From home prices to bailouts, inflation to wealth inequality, and economic history through bitcoin--the author packs in many facts, figures, details, and ideas for readers to consider. He does write his pages presenting his own analysis and conclusions--but teaches a lot of practical information open to reader interpretation as well. The book is long but quite well presented, entertaining, informative, and thought-provoking. 

 

Would I Recommend The Practical M.B.A. on Economics by Joseph Gulesserian? The author does an excellent job presenting many technical, economic ideas in a way that is easy to understand and interestingly thought-provoking. Our current world financial situation is one that everyone should seek to understand--and this book offers a wonderful starting point for those interested in understanding. I enjoyed revisiting some of the historical details that I was already a bit familiar with, as well as recent events from the past 20-30 years and the author's thoughts on the path ahead. I would recommend it to everyone seeking a more robust understanding of the economic principles truly at play in the world around us.

About the Book

 

Jennifer Monroe spins a tantalizing tale of two very unlikely lovers in this intriguing friends-to-lovers Regency romance between a young beauty and a scarred beast of an earl, who is dead-set on vengeance.


To get his revenge, he needs a fiancée...

Nicholas, Lord Dowding, is a dangerous and reckless man. For more than five years, revenge has been the earl's only goal as he traveled England seeking to ruin the lives of those who once wronged his family.

Earning himself the moniker "Earl of Deception" for his deadly, scheming ways, Nicholas is close to putting the past to rest once and for all. The only problem? He'll need a woman by his side to do it.

To play the role of a lifetime, she'll bargain her heart...

Her education could never have prepared the romantic dreamer Miss Jenny Clifton,, for a man like Nicholas. When the earl arrives at the school to call in a favor she never expected to have to repay, Jenny is quickly caught up in a dangerous game where she must first pose as his fiancée.

Nicholas is dashing but ruthless, and his heart is heavily scarred by his past when he asks Jenny to pose as his fiancée. But she can't help being drawn to this man who blazes with passion wherever he goes.

The greatest deception of all...

She's just a lovestruck silly schoolgirl who owes him a favor. Their burgeoning friendship is a bonus, but what he requires of her is strictly business. It's a simple enough plan—in theory.

…Is between a man and his unruly heart.

But Nicholas finds Jenny is one entanglement he cannot easily escape. While the girl is vexingly naive and innocent, she also burns with a beauty and sensuality that makes his heart beat faster. Soon Nicholas finds himself brought to his knees by a woman who holds a power even greater than that of deception: love.

Two Roads to Paradise Book Review & Book Tour Giveaway

This morning, I have an adult fiction novel with a dystopian/science fiction style theme in our book review spotlight!  Check out Two Roads to Paradise from the Be Careful What you Wish For series, learn about the book & authors Gordon Jensen with  Cara Highsmith & Gordon Thomas, read my thoughts on the book & be sure to enter for a chance to win a prize in the book tour giveaway at the end of this post!  Also, if you missed it, you can check out my review of The Way Out--Book One from this series too!


​Book TitleTwo Roads to Paradise (Book 2: Be Careful What You Wish for Series) by Gordon Jensen with Cara Highsmith and Gordon Thomas
Category:  Adult Fiction (18+),  324 pages
GenreSci-Fi
Publisher:  Highsmith Creative Services
Release date:  May 2022
Content Rating:  PG-13 +M. The language is pretty tame, but there are a few swear words. The bigger issue is some of the topics addressed in it. 
 

About the Book


Although the reappearance of the Alpha Centauri I crew was miraculous, it was not the celebratory homecoming they expected. Their return to a world reeling from a pandemic that wiped out more than half the population thrust them right into the center of controversy and conflict. Now, three years later, though the tide has turned and the survival of the human race seems to be secure, the survival of human relations is far less certain. The cure should have been the injection of hope the world needed to restore balance and end the chaos of the last four decades. Instead, the complex implications for personal rights and freedom have fractured the North American territory in such a way that the division may never be repaired. As the crew dispersed to find their place in this new landscape, Hunter Young found himself embedded in the Marshall administration as an agent for the mysterious K Group. What had been a relatively uneventful assignment suddenly becomes a whirlwind of adventure as he is called to a rendezvous that requires a long and circuitous journey.

 

My Review

 

Readers should read the series in order. While you could read the first book without needing to continue the series--you should read that first book first to help ease into this second book. Two Roads to Paradise introduces some new characters and follows different roads and political perspectives as the world continues with the changes and developments from book one. 

 

Two Roads to Paradise continues the series' political storyline. While the premise of the novel and the series holds science fiction and dystopian elements as the characters move through their journeys in the post-pandemic aftermath, it is even far more political and social in theme than the first book. Red and Blue (Republican and Democrat) views and ideas serve as the focus--but the writing style did lend to the presentation of both viewpoints from different characters and encounter perspectives. 

 

Would I Recommend Two Roads to Paradise?   If you enjoy political novels developed via a fantasy world that mirrors current reality--this novel may suit you well. I found this novel a bit slower-paced than the first--and more political than I had realized it would be. Having said that, I did find the presentation of different political views interesting, and the dystopian novel fan in me enjoyed watching the characters rebuild lives and regroup amid the changes.

About the Book


When the Alpha Centauri crew returns to earth after a failed mission to explore a distant planet, they quickly learn the world is not how they left it.

Under new global leadership, the planet has managed to go decades without conflict, except for one major problem. Thanks to a pandemic caused by a mutation in a new strain of GMO corn, the world’s population plummeted to 2.6 billion, wiping out a disproportionate amount of men and leaving the globe run almost entirely by women. The mutation altered the human DNA, making it impossible to produce male babies and increasing Y-chromosome related diseases.

Because of their lack of exposure, the Alpha Centauri crew, especially the men on board, now find themselves in high demand. The Powers that Be think they are the solution, but with that solution comes the inevitable hunger for power and control. As greed, self-interest, and corruption rear their ugly heads, a planet that had found its way to peace is thrust into turmoil once again.

So, the question becomes: Are they really the answer to a seemingly unsolvable problem? The world may soon come to understand that sometimes getting what you wish for isn't the gift you think it will be.

The Way Out is at once a brilliant and relatable work of post-apocalyptic fiction. Think The Handmaid’s Tale mixed with Netflix’s The Wilds, and a touch of Interstellar, the movie. It’s a uniquely told story that will have you waiting as impatiently as the crew to understand the New World Order of the near future.
