Now a little Fairy Tale reading for Grownups-




Fairy Tale romance series

Happily Ever After …
Or Happily Nevermore?

Gisela’s childhood was filled with laughter and visits from nobles such as the duke and his young son. But since her father’s death, each day has been filled with nothing but servitude to her stepmother. So when Gisela learns the duke’s son, Valten—the boy she has daydreamed about for years—is throwing a ball in hopes of finding a wife, she vows to find a way to attend, even if it’s only for a taste of a life she’ll never have. To her surprise, she catches Valten’s eye. Though he is rough around the edges, Gisela finds Valten has completely captured her heart. But other forces are bent on keeping the two from falling further in love, putting Gisela in more danger than she ever imagined.




Fairy Tale Brides

Wedding fever has hit the little town of Marietta…

Lisa Renee loves weddings. As owner of Marietta’s bridal salon, Lisa takes charge when a celebrity wedding rolls into town and does what she does best: hosting the fairy tale wedding her clients dream of. But the celebrity’s badly behaving bridesmaids shatter Lisa’s poise, excitement, and hopes of putting Marietta and her boutique on the map. The only place she can find peace is on the pediatric ward of the local hospital where she volunteers, a place that holds more meaning to her than anyone knows. Leave it to the handsome and charming new doctor to change all of that…

Dr. Adam Brady is enjoying his new job and anonymity at Marietta’s hospital, but he hasn’t been able to focus entirely since the gorgeous business owner and hard-working volunteer piqued his interest. As he spends more time with her, sparks fly, and he realizes that he’s not the only one in Marietta with secrets…

An airplane or aeroplane (informally plane) is a powered, fixed-wing aircraft that is propelled forward by thrust from a jet engine or propeller. Airplanes come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and wing configurations. The broad spectrum of uses for airplanes includes recreation, transportation of goods and people, military, and research. Commercial aviation is a massive industry involving the flying of tens of thousands of passengers daily on airliners. Most airplanes are flown by a pilot on board the aircraft, but some are designed to be remotely or computer-controlled.

The Wright brothers invented and flew the first airplane in 1903, recognized as “the first sustained and controlled heavier-than-air powered flight”


And my favorite Airplane Movie – 


Airplane Movie

If Your Summer Vacation Planes include an Airplane Ride- 


Children Book

A first airplane ride can be very exciting! Watching planes take off and land, going through security, walking the jet way, finding the right seat, watching out the window as the plane taxis down the runway, and flying up high in the sky and then, at the other end, Grandma waiting with a hug! Nancy Speir’s acrylic illustrations deftly interpret the wonder and joy of a child’s first plane-trip adventure.

Summer Reading Camps

Hello Friday – It’s another wet day in Louisiana but schools out here and I’am thinking about Summer Break.  One fun thing you can do is – a Summer Reading Camp !

Why Reading Camp ?

The research is clear that children who don’t read during the summer can lose up to three months of reading progress and that loss has a cumulative, long-term effect.


Welcome to Summer Reading 2017! BUILD A BETTER WORLD!



What is Summer Reading?

  • A free 8-week program at branches of the Public Library that encourages babies, children, tweens, teens and adults to read throughout the summer.
  • Set your own reading goals, read at your own pace wherever you’re most comfortable, and visit the library once each week to collect fun incentive prizes.

Happy Birthday ! Margret

Yesterday was the Birthday of Margret Wise Brown – author of some wonderful children books. I read these books to my own son when he was little. Reading and books are a great gift.   Pass this gift on to someone you love and Enjoy reading this again !  Lisa 


Share this timeless classic with a new generation of readers!

In a great green room, tucked away in bed, is a little bunny. “Goodnight room, goodnight moon.” And to all the familiar things in the softly lit room—to the picture of the three little bears sitting on chairs, to the clocks and his socks, to the mittens and the kittens, to everything one by one—the little bunny says goodnight.

In this classic of children’s literature, beloved by generations of readers and listeners, the quiet poetry of the words and the gentle, lulling illustrations combine to make a perfect book for the end of the da

Happy Birthday ! Margaret  Wise Brown   website


Margaret Wise Brown wrote hundreds of books and stories during her life, but she is best known for Goodnight Moon and Runaway Bunny. Even though she died over 45 years ago, her books still sell very well. Margaret loved animals. Most of her books have animals as characters in the story. She liked to write books that had a rhythm to them. Sometimes she would put a hard word into the story or poem. She thought this made children think harder when they are reading. She wrote all the time. There are many scraps of paper where she quickly wrote down a story idea or a poem. She said she dreamed stories and then had to write them down in the morning before she forgot them. She tried to write the way children wanted to hear a story, which often isn’t the same way an adult would tell a story. She also taught illustrators to draw the way a child saw things. One time she gave two puppies to someone who was going to draw a book with that kind of dog. The illustrator painted many pictures one day and then fell asleep. When he woke up, the papers he painted on were bare. The puppies had licked all the paint off the paper. Margaret died after surgery for a bursting appendix while in France. She had many friends who still miss her. They say she was a creative genius who made a room come to life with her excitement. Margaret saw herself as something else – a writer of songs and nonsense.

Happy Saturday !

I hope everyone had a great week as we celebrated the end of school and graduation.

Thanks for all the Comments & Sharing – It inspires me to do more.

Wednesday Mystery Book Spotlight

Wednesday  Mystery Book Spotlight !    A Brand New series from this amazing author-


Buy Link     Free with Kindle Unlimited ! 

In a new series from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Melinda Leigh, former prosecutor Morgan Dane faces the most personal—and deadly—case of her lifetime.

After the devastating loss of her husband in Iraq, Morgan Dane returns to Scarlet Falls, seeking the comfort of her hometown. Now, surrounded by family, she’s finally found peace and a promising career opportunity—until her babysitter is killed and her neighbor asks her to defend his son, Nick, who stands accused of the murder.

Tessa was the ultimate girl next door, and the community is outraged by her death. But Morgan has known Nick for years and can’t believe he’s guilty, despite the damning evidence stacked against him. She asks her friend Lance Kruger, an ex-cop turned private eye, for help. Taking on the town, the police, and a zealous DA, Morgan and Lance plunge into the investigation, determined to find the real killer. But as they uncover secrets that rock the community, they become targets for the madman hiding in plain sight.


Wall Street Journal bestselling author Melinda Leigh is a fully recovered banker. A life-long lover of books, she started writing as a way to preserve her sanity while raising her kids. Over the next few years, she learned a few things about writing a book. The process was much more fun than analyzing financial statements, and she decided to turn her hobby into a career. Melinda’s debut novel, SHE CAN RUN, was nominated for Best First Novel by the International Thriller Writers. She is a RITA® Award Finalist and has earned three Daphne du Maurier Award nominations, Two Silver Falchion Awards, and Two Golden Leaf Awards.

Melinda holds a 2nd degree belt in Kenpo Karate. She’s dabbled in Arnis stick fighting, studied Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and taught women’s self-defense. She lives in a messy house in the suburbs with her husband, two kids, a couple of shelter dogs and two rescue cats who clearly run the show. With such a pleasant life, she has no explanation for the sometimes dark and disturbing nature of her imagination. Find out more about Melinda by visiting melindaleigh.com.

Review- Billionaire Groom

Do you love Billionaires? Do you want to laugh out load?  Read this ! 



Buy Book    99 cents

Enjoy 4 Standalone books in this bundle.
VERY STEAMY. You’ve been warned!
Oh, I must add – it’s HILARIOUS too 😉

Four men with love and seduction on their minds. Four women who’ve vowed to stay single and free.

Crazy in love
I loved Blain George the moment he looked at me and tried to get me into his pants. He’s smart, funny and the sexiest man I have ever met. So yeah, I love him and I have given him my all. Every single part of me, even my crazy family who are more likely to kill him than not. I did give him my all until he took that love and crushed it beneath his thousand dollar boot heel. He wants me back? He’ll have to prove to me he’ll do anything to get me, even if he has to be crazy for this love.

Madly in love
Grayson George is a spoilt little rich by with delusions of grandeur and a backend that makes my knees weak with longing. I resisted. I fought. Heck, I even told my mama I’d move back home just to stop myself from wanting more than I should. But I should have known better than to taunt a man like Gray. Waking up married, with no recollection of how I got that way isn’t what frightens me. It’s the fact that when he touches me and makes me his, I am madly in love too.

Wildly in love
I have cheated, lied and done everything in my power for Tyson Fox to see me and know that we belong together. I want him so much and yet when his ex comes back into the picture and has him rethinking a relationship, I know, sometimes even cheating won’t get me the win. Sometimes, you have to leave the field and be the prize instead.

Recklessly in love
I finally stopped running and gave all of myself to Russell Mark. He’s my ideal. My heart. The only man I even look at anymore. And he’s left me all alone because as he’s proven over and over again, I’m poor second to his priorities. I love him. But I won’t long for a man who can’t see me for all I am.

Book Review- I downloaded this bundle thinking why not? And I must say that it was great. I spent most of the time laughing at the characters in these books. 

Here’s the basic 4 Billionaires have been friends forever, When the first one falls instantly in love he brings his three friends along and they fall in love with her three friends. But it;s not an easy road. There’s road blocks but each work out to a happy ending. But getting to that ending is whats so fun to read- Each book brings a fun set of characters that I see my own big loving family in. Read this bundle and get read to Laugh out loud.  Lisa

Previously published in the anthology Wild, the paranormal queen of steam and sass pulls out all the stops in this sexy, funny short story from New York Times bestselling author Eve Langlais.

Broderick has a job to do—audit the books of a gentleman’s club. Sounds simple, except his company wants him to find dirt linking to the mob, his secret mob employer wants someone to pin the blame on, and the bar manager at the heart of the controversy doesn’t want him—even though she’s his mate.
