When Nann (that’s with 2 nn’s please) moves to her late Aunt Nancy’s home in Calamity Corners, she wonders why there’s a little pig running amok with a toilet seat in its mouth. But that’s the least of her worries. She has a bookstore to open. 

Cemetery Center doesn’t sound like an up and coming place to open a new business, but the square footage is huge and the rent is right. Her shop neighbor Zinnia owns the art gallery next door. But Zinnia has a secret, one that occurs on the full moon. Werewolf? Not exactly. 

When Nann searches for a vehicle to buy, she’s sent to the only car repair shop in town. However, Tink, the shop mechanic, has Spock’s ears. Okay…And what’s going on on the third floor of her bookstore building? Men get together and drink beer around a coffin. Someone mentioned the VHS. Vampire Hunter Society? Van Helsing Society? This town is getting weirder by the minute. 

But that’s just the way Nann likes it. She’s a Druid witch, just like her late Aunt Nancy. She’s come to take over her aunt’s home and move the family bookstore business. Pokey the Pig is Aunt Nancy’s familiar and by lineage becomes Nann’s familiar. She communicates through the radio, and depending on what station you’re on, Nann either gets a red-eyed feisty porker or ‘I just want to be held’ piggy. 

So when boys begin to go missing in neighboring towns, Nann is convinced it’s magic that’s gone haywire. Could it be the giant pointy eared mechanic named Tink has taken to kidnapping, or does her neighbor shifter Zinnia have an appetite for humans? Or could whatever is in the coffin on the third floor have a hand in it? The gang is also looking at Nann….they all remember Hansel & Gretel. Nann must find Aunt Nancy’s witch books so she can put a stop to the disappearances, but she’s in for more than she bargained for when forces come at her from different directions.

Over the next three months, I will be merging the best (if not all) of three smaller blogs, and some posts (that I can recreate) from blogs that I had to delete for various reasons.

(and that’s my Harley over there – she’s sad, too, at the extra work that has to be done now – but toss her a ball and she’s over it much faster than I am 🙂 )

If you’re on my mailing lists you might see an increase in the notifications – and if you follow me on Twitter you will definitely see an increase there.  Yet, sometimes you just have to take care of stuff and that’s what I’ll be doing for a while.

My overall plan is a slow feed of posts over to Keeper Bookshelf from today until the beginning of November when those other blogs will go away as well.  It won’t be overpowering, and you’ll probably not notice anything different.  But I’m a person who explains why something different is happening with my websites — and this is most definitely different.

Thanks for your patience.  Hopefully, the end result will be well worth the time and work involved.  🙂

For the airline executives finalizing a merger that would make news in the business world, the nine a.m. meeting would be a major milestone. But after marketing VP Paul Rogan walked into the plush conference room, strapped with explosives, the headlines told of death and destruction instead. The NYPSD’s Eve Dallas confirms that Rogan was cruelly coerced by two masked men holding his family hostage. His motive was saving his wife and daughter―but what was the motive of the masked men?

Despite the chaos and bad publicity, blowing up one meeting isn’t going to put the brakes on the merger. All it’s accomplished is shattering a lot of innocent lives. Now, with the help of her billionaire husband Roarke, Eve must untangle the reason for an inexplicable act of terror, look at suspects inside and outside both corporations, and determine whether the root of this crime lies in simple sabotage, or something far more complex and twisted.

The Can’t Wait Wednesday weekly anxiously waiting for this book meme is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings.  If you’re waiting for a great book to be released then this is the place to show and tell – and maybe find some other books to await as well.  (I know I always do)

I have followed Christine Feehan’s “The Dark Carpathians” for years now, actually since I got hooked on the very first story of an ancient vampire and the woman who became his world.  Since then this world has expanded and is now up to #33 in titles published.  Considering her other long going series that’s an impressive number to keep a world still fresh and intriguing with every new additional story.

So this week I’m waiting for the September 3, 2019 release of DARK ILLUSION (A Dark Carpathian Novel).

The only thing more dangerous than discovering her life is a lie? 

Falling for Harley Dalton again.

Reeling from the discovery she was switched at birth, Jade Nolan reluctantly joins forces with her ex-lover, security specialist Harley Dalton, to find her birth family.

As they search for answers amid lies, Jade and Harley quickly rekindle long-denied passions. But will finding out the truth—and a secret worth billions—jeopardize their precious second chance?

Titles in the Switched! series include — From Mistake to Millions – From Riches to Redemption – From Seduction to Secrets –

A one-night stand becomes much, much more in this sexy, lighthearted romance.

Maid of honor Kelsey Peterson is disappointed when the bride-to-be bails on her bachelorette party—especially since Kelsey’s already ordered the stripper. Desperate for a break from her romantic woes, Kelsey goes through with the party. After all, why let a good stripper go to waste?

Dr. Aaron Baucus is definitely not a stripper. He’s a legit doctor with a Ph.D. in neuropsychology. But when his friend calls him over to a bar to meet a bunch of tipsy, flirtatious bridesmaids, they assume otherwise. After all, their stripper was supposed to be dressed like a doctor. Aaron isn’t much for pretending, but with Kelsey, he’s willing to be whatever she wants him to be. At least for one night.

But fate has a wicked sense of humor: Aaron and Kelsey are the maid of honor and best man at the same wedding. And after their one-night stand, Kelsey’s pregnant, but she doesn’t know how to tell him. Aaron wants to start a relationship, but he doesn’t think Kelsey wants something long term. Can their fragile romance survive all the half-truths and secrecy?

There is a slight connection to The (Half) Truth.

The Bishop siblings’ family is on the verge of collapse as all three find themselves embroiled in danger. Family bonds may keep them alive…but only love can give them something to live for.

She needs his protection…

Thanks to years of government training, Evie Bishop knows how to get into places she doesn’t belong—and she’s very good at it. But years of doing black ops work burned her out so she returns home—to unexpected chaos. One of her brothers is in a coma and the other is in hiding, wanted for murder. Then a fellow operative from her past shows up shot and bleeding with news that an assassin is gunning for everyone involved with a past op. She’s forced to turn to the one man she knows she can trust—the man whose heart she broke. 

But it will come with a price…

When Dylan Blackwood proposed a year ago, Evie turned him down flat and walked out of his life. He’s stunned when he finds her on his doorstep covered in someone else’s blood, needing his help. He always knew there was more to her than met the eye—that Evie was never simply the pampered society princess she wanted people to believe she was. But he never expected this. If she needs help, he’ll give it. Even if he can’t forget her betrayal. Even if he isn’t sure he can trust her. But his protection will come with a price—her heart. Before they can have a chance at a future, they’ll have to work together to take down a faceless enemy who has Evie firmly in his crosshairs.

Titles in the Endgame trilogy include — Bishop’s Knight – Bishop’s Queen – Bishop’s Endgame

He offers to show her the parts of Scotland he swears will spark life back into her brushes. And as they tour the sights on the back of his motorcycle, Sorcha realizes that under the tattoos and smart mouth, Danny may inspire more in her than just a new painting.
