Welcome to Friday’s update and as you will have gathered I am not here at the moment. I will be back online next Wednesday but in the meantime I did not want to miss the weekly opportunity to promote authors in the bookstore.
I would be very grateful as I am not here to boost the post if you would share, thanks Sally
The first author with a new review is Mary Anne Edwards with Flirting with Time, Book Five in the Charlie McClung Mystery Series..
About the series
The Detective Charlie McClung mysteries are gripping yet tender novels. The books are set in the early 1980s, a time without cell phones or laptop computers making life more simple but solving crime more difficult. The plots are filled with twists and turns. The characters are believable yet complex. They are people you know or want to know.
About Flirting with Time – Book Five of the series
Do you know what it’s like to feel someone stalking you, shadowing every move you make?
For months now, Detective Charlie McClung and his wife have been tormented by an elusive figure, toying with them, almost daring the detective to catch him.
Any hopes that this is the work of a harmless prankster vanish when an innocent man is found brutally murdered.
McClung will go to any lengths to protect his family, but how far is too far?
A recent review for the book
My husband and I were married on Valentine’s Day and I get a few hearts around that time. Marian is getting more than a few and not around Valentine’s Day either. Charlie must try to solve one conundrum at a time. He must also try to do this quickly because someone seems to be after Marian. This was a very fast moving book with quite a few conundrums popping up. It turned into a game similar to Who Do You Trust. I enjoyed it and recommend it to those who like to try to solve the story before the end of the book. Bet you can’t do it!!!

Delighted to share the most recent review for Christoph Fischer: The Sanctuary on Cayman Brac: Key to the Truth (Fraud or Miracle? Book 3)
Arpan has set up a training school and spiritual retreat on the small island in the Caribbean. Yet, the peaceful and quiet existence he has sought soon comes to an end. The arrival of Erica teaches him that lose ends won’t stop until they’re truly healed and dealt with.
Erica, out to seek revenge for past wrongs soon begins to fall under the Caribbean spell and the magic of Arpan. Torn between her desire for justice and her own longing for peace, what she discovers at the school sets her again on the path of confusion and distrust.
Set in a beautiful location and spiked with a crossover from the cast of Fischer’s other mystery novel, “The Gamblers” this is another fast-paced psychological thriller about faith and deceit. Erica will finally find out the full truth about who tricked whom and we’ll all get an answer as to who will walk away with the last laugh.
A recent review for the book
This is the third book in the Fraud or Miracle trilogy, and I enjoyed this one just as much as Book 1 and 2. In this book, we are taken to Cayman Brac where Arpan has moved his new retreat – a spiritual healing training center where his new peaceful hideaway becomes the center for chaos, deceit and a thrilling ride of who is authentic and what are the character’s motives for showing up to the retreat in this mystical thriller. Greed is the motive for all these characters wanting to destroy Arpan and steal his business.
Erica returns to find out from Arpan if he is truly a healer or merely a con man pretending to heal her of a disease she’s not sure she really had. While taking part in the classes, she spends secret time investigating the truth behind Arpan and his dealings with the two mysterious women Julia from the pharmaceutical company who forbid Arpan to practice healing after her company bought the rights for the so called ‘elexir’ which Arpan had given up and Hilda, Erica’s ex assistant who was part of the scheme with Julia to make Erica believe she had terminal cancer but was miraculously healed. We also find Ben the accountant from the Gamblers, who shows up wanting to put his spiritual side to good use by joining the retreat, but are his intentions honest or is he part of the deceitful clan who power this story?
Fischer has a great talent for keeping his readers hooked til the very end of his books. His characters are memorable and well fleshed out. This book will keep you wondering all the way who is good and who is evil. A superb ending I never anticipated. A great whodunit for mystery lovers.

The next author with a recent review is Claire Fullerton with the wonderfully titled Dancing to an Irish Reel set in Connemara.
On sabbatical from her job in the LA record business, Hailey takes a trip to Ireland for the vacation of a lifetime. What she finds is a job offer too good to turn down.
Her new job comes with one major complication—Liam Hennessey. He’s a famous Irish musician whose entire live has revolved around performing. And Hailey falls in love with him. Although Liam’s not so sure love is in the cards for him, he’s not willing to push her away completely.
And so begins Hailey’s journey to a colorful land that changes her life, unites her with friends more colorful than the Irish landscape, and gives her a chance at happiness she’s never found before.

Fabulously written!! You will not be able to put this book down, and will greatly enjoy escaping into the lives of the characters, the colorful Irish landscape and lifestyle, and the reminder of what it feels like to fall in love. The beautiful skill in which Claire Fullerton writes brings you into the hearts and minds of her characters so much that you feel you are one of them. I picked up the book on a Saturday morning and except for a few personal interruptions, I could not put it down and was finished that afternoon…and wishing the journey was not over. A definite MUST READ!!

The next author is Linda G. Hill and her book The Magician’s Curse: A Paranormal Romance – The Great Dagmaru Book 1.
When Herman Anderson leaves home to make a better life for herself, she doesn’t expect to meet a tall, dark stranger with whom she’ll fall hopelessly in love.
Charming and mysterious, Stephen Dagmar is a stage magician seeking an assistant. The moment he sets eyes on Herman, he knows she’s the one. He brings her home to his Victorian mansion where they embark upon an extravagant romance. Yet a shadow hangs over their love. Will the curse on his family end Stephen and Herman’s happily ever after, before it really begins?
Amidst lace and leather, innocence and debauchery, The Magician’s Curse begins the Gothic tale of The Great Dagmaru. Magic and romance await.
One of the recent reviews for the book
A mysterious curse, a chance meeting on a train. The hauntingly beautiful Stephen Dagmar meets and instantly recognizes the love of his life on a train running away from her complicated family life.
This story challenges the reader to suspend disbelief and allow oneself to be drawn into the world of magic and the supernatural and accept it as reality.
The antagonist of the story, Nina Curry, has a level of vulnerability that makes her a compelling character to watch.
Herman Anderson, the heroine of this piece, is a blank sheet. Her age and inexperience make this the case more than anything else. She is acted upon rather than acts. As this is an ongoing series of works, I look forward to Herman’s development in the course of the story as things continue to unfold for this pair.
