Welcome to Friday’s edition of the Cafe and Bookstore Update and my first guest is Victoria Zigler with news about the availability of more of her books in audio. Victoria is blind and for the millions of readers around the world who are sight impaired, audio books are vitally important.
Previously only available as eBooks and paperbacks, all four of Victoria’s Degu stories – the two in her Degu Days Duo, and both her stand alone Degu books – are now available in audio, thanks to the skills of narrator James Watkins.
Oscar has everything a degu could need, or want, in the cage he shares with his brother, Romeo, but it’s not enough; Oscar longs for freedom. Convinced he’s missing out on an amazing adventure, Oscar dreams of the day when he’ll be able to investigate the world beyond his cage bars without the human caretakers telling him where and when he can explore. Now, at long last, his chance has arrived. But will it be the exciting adventure he’s always dreamed it would be?

The next update is for Angie Dokos for Roadside which tells the story of Serena and her journey back from violence with the help of a stranger.
Zayne finds Serena’s lifeless body off the side of the road one morning. She has been beaten and left for dead. As she recovers, they become the best of friends. It doesn’t take long for Zayne’s feelings to grow stronger. Will the fear of ruining their friendship keep them from taking a chance on love?
One of the recent reviews for the book
I’ve never been much into romance novels, but ‘Roadside’ by Angie Dokos has changed this.
Serena is a young woman brutally assaulted in the middle of the night on her way to the store. Zayne finds her left for dead on the side of the road. The desire to help this young woman compels Zayne to remain by her side until she’s recovered. While the police search for her attacker, Zayne and Serena develop a fast-friendship. But something keeps them from moving forward to the next step of a serious relationship. Why? What is it that keeps Serena from opening up to Zayne. And what keeps Zayne from doing the same.
Readers will enjoy this book which has dark moments as Serena explains her ordeal to the police, and then awaits the outcome of finding her attacker. Then there’s the developing relationship between Zayne and Serena. It’s tender, sweet, and loving. I actually related with Zayne’s shyness (much to my own embarrassment). And there’s the friends of each, who support, encourage, and joke about how Zayne and Serena keep putting off the inevitable first date. You’ll love Destiny who presses Serena to open up, while Zayne’s friends do the same.
The author has a vivid style leaving you feeling like you’re in the same room with the characters. She creates scenes that leave you laughing over the jokes they have on one another, and scenes which remind you of first love. This is my first book I’ve read by Angie Dokos, and it won’t be my last.
I highly recommend this book for readers of all genres! If a reader like myself (who prefers action-suspense, thriller stories) can enjoy a romantic story, then so will you.

One of the recent reviews for the book
Legends of deceit is a fantasy novel written about a girl named Haven. When she comes home one day after a trip to see her parents murdered, her life turns upside down.
Larkin, a handsome soldier convinces her to come with him to a realm as he believes that she is princess Alaris. The world is filled with mystical creatures and is beautifully described. Haven discovers that she is, in fact, a princess and that her biological mother and grandmother both hid certain memories in her mind and sent her to earth in order to protect her. As things begin to unravel, she also learns a lot about who she can trust and what her destiny is.
The storyline may have not been a novel one however, it was extremely pleasing to read. The added romantic connection between Larkin and Haven was sweet and made things even more interesting.
The plot and the pace were very well thought through. The realm and world setting felt researched and were intriguing. The best thing about the book, in my opinion, is how everything came together. I look forward to reading more from this author.
