Grace Doll by Jennifer Laurens
Grace Doll had everything a girl could want: Fame. Fortune. Beauty.
Everything except, of course, her freedom. So when a powerful movie producer forces an experimental treatment on Grace–one that’s purported to make beauty immortal–she stages her own death to escape him.
With the help of trusted friends, Grace slips into hiding. She’s forever flawless, forever young and forever pursued by her past.
But when a stranger arrives on her doorstep, holding the key to a life she thought she’d left behind, Grace must decide between the safety she’s known… and embracing the role she was born to play.

About the Author:

I write YA books. Whatever my heart desires, I write. I don’t have someone over my shoulder, in some office somewhere telling me what I can and cannot write. Or should and shouldn’t write. I listen to my heart, the center of my muse, and trust my instincts.

I’ve written since junior high school. An only child, I grew up writing big stories about big families. I also write YA under the name of JM Warwick. My hometown of Palos Verdes, California figures in much of my work, as does my current home of Pleasant Grove, Utah and other favorite places. I love to travel.

They say “write what you know” and I do. I am a mother, I have six children, five cats and a huge doberman/dane dog. I have a supportive husband and we’ve been married 25 years. Our lives, though challenging with a handicapped child who has autism, are centered in our family.

My life experiences have worked into all of my novels. Some more heavily than others, but parts of me are in each story. I love stories rich in family drama, where family members overcome obstacles through love and miracles.



I really enjoyed Grace Doll by Jennifer Laurens.  It was an easy to read story and had interesting characters.
Grace Doll was spotted at the age of 13 by Rufus Solomon a movie producer.  He said she was a woman in a child’s body.  He talked her parents into letting him take her and she never saw her parents again. They died 2 months later in a house fire.  He later married Grace.
Grace had everything, she was beautiful, had fame, and money; but Rufus was very controlling and Grace was afraid of him most of the time.  The only people that Grace could talk to were her makeup artist Jonathan and Oscar her personal assistant.  They knew that she was not in a good relationship and vowed to get her out of it.  One night Rufus hired a scientist to come over and inject her and himself with an experimental treatment that would keep her young forever. That very same night the house she lived in started on fire.  Jonathan and Oscar had come to her rescue – they helped her escape and found a place for her to go into hiding.  Everyone thought that she had died in the fire. That was everyone but Rufus – who still searched for her.
You will need to read this book to find out if Rufus ever finds Grace? What happened to Jonathan and Oscar? Did the treatment work?  I am sure you will enjoy this story as much as I did.

Thank you for stopping at my spot on Healing Notes Book Tour. This Online Book Tour is brought to you by Goddess Fish Promotions. I will provide you with a synopsis of the book, review, excerpt and a small bio from Maggie Jaimeson. Visit the other blogs on this Book Tour to learn more about this book.
 About the book:
Forgiving yourself is the first step, but helping others forgive may be just too hard.
Rachel Cullen grew up in Scotland with a fiddle in her hand from the age of four. She couldn’t imagine life as anything but a musician. When her husband brought her to America she was immediately embraced by the Celtic and Bluegrass communities. But after her divorce, Rachel’s life is a mess.
A year of trying to prove to herself that she’s woman enough for any man, and then a vicious rape while on tour with the band, leaves Rachel reeling. When she meets Noel Kershaw, an English teacher who is poetry in motion, she is definitely attracted. But he has a young child and he’s suffering from his own divorce. The last thing Rachel needs in life is more baggage.
First, Rachel must reconcile who she is, what she wants, and how to get there. Maybe then she’ll know how to be a part of the family she’s always wanted.
Claire crawled onto a stool on the other side of the island and smiled.  Neither of them talked for several minutes as they listened to the water in the pot heat.
“When I grow up, I’m going to play with Sweetwater Canyon all the time.”
“Are you sure you want to hang out with all us old folks?”
“You’re not all old. Well maybe a little old. But Kat isn’t old.”
Rachel smiled. “That’s true. She’s only seventeen.” And going on twenty-five it seemed sometimes.
“Oh, seventeen? That is old.” Claire put a finger to her lips and furrowed her brow. “How old do I have to be to play in the band all the time?”
“Probably at least eighteen.”
“But, you just said Kat—”
“Kat is different, because her mother plays in the band and can watch her all the time.”
“Well, you can watch me all the time. You can be my mother.”
Rachel gulped.
“Well, can’t you?”
“Can’t she what?” Noel walked in the room and lifted Claire off the chair in a big hug, swinging her around the room. “Can’t she what? She can do anything she wants.”
“See,” Claire leaned forward and looked at Rachel over Noel’s shoulder. “See, even Daddy thinks you can be my mother.”
“Whoa.” Noel set Claire back on the stool. “I’m not sure what I walked in on here.” He sent an accusing glance to Rachel. “You already have a mother, Claire.”
“I know. Not my real mother. My second mother. You know, like my friend, Megan. Her mommy and daddy got divorced and her daddy married a new mommy. So, Megan has two mommies now.  See?  Rachel can be my second mommy. Okay?”

Thank you for stopping at my spot on Texting Tyler. This Online Book Tour is brought to you by Reading Addiction Virtual Blog Tours. I will provide you with a synopsis of the book, review, excerpt and a small bio from Rebecca Rembish. Visit the other blogs on this Book Tour to learn more about this book.


YA Contemporary Romance
Title: Texting Tyler
Author – Rebecca Rembish

Date Published: 8/29/12

Christopher Clarke is the nicest guy Amy Fallon has ever met. He is handsome, smart, funny, an all-around great guy. Tyler Clarke is hot. So why is Amy, one of the smartest girls in school, so clueless when it comes to realizing who she is truly falling in love with? Or better yet, who’s falling in love with her.
Amy is forced to spend the week at her grandmother’s house in Arizona. She returns home to New York with a closer bond to her grandmother, with a best friend who she adores and with a boyfriend who she believes is everything she has ever dreamed of. After months of communication with the two new men in her life, things finally seem to be falling in to place for Amy. That is, until she starts to realize whom her heart is truly longing for. When she returns to Arizona almost a year later, things don’t go quite as planned when she is blindsided not only by the death of her grandmother, but learns the truth behind the text messages from Tyler. With time, and a little help from her grandmother’s memory we are able to see if her broken heart can heal and get Amy back on the course she was destined for.


“I can’t wait.” Amy was genuinely excited.
They walked out to the parking lot and said their goodbyes.
“See ya tomorrow!” Dana shouted to them as they were walking away. 
“Okay!” Amy yelled back. They had just left and she already couldn’t wait to see them 
again the next day.
“They’re cool, right?” Chris asked. 
“Very,” Amy answered right away. 
Chris puffed his chest out. “I knew you’d like them. I could tell they really liked you too.” 
They waited by the car for Tyler, who took his time walking over to join them. He moved 
slowly, clicking the doors open with his key chain. They were all about to get in the car 
when Tyler turned to Chris. 
“Hey man chuck this for me.” Tyler held out the soda cup he was slurping on during the movie.
“Chuck it yourself,” Chris said.
“Then walk home,” Tyler said matter-of-factly.  
“Just give it to me.” Chris huffed as he took the soda cup from his brother and walked 
over to the trashcan. 
Amy and Tyler got in to the car shutting the doors. She heard a click and looked over 
at Tyler who was laughing. “Watch this,” he said to her.
A moment later Chris came back and opened the door to the car. Clunk, it wouldn’t open. 
“Unlock the door,” Chris said through the window. 
Tyler ignored him.
“Open the door,” Chris said impatiently.
Tyler clicked the button back and forth quickly. Chris went to open the door. Clunk,
 it wouldn’t open. 
Amy shifted uncomfortably in her seat. Tyler looked over at her and lifted his eyebrows
 at her as he continued to laugh. 
“Tyler, I swear to God man. Why you doing this?” Chris asked shaking his head. 
Amy felt bad for him. Tyler continued to ignore him and started the car. Amy
 looked out the window at Chris giving him a sympathetic look. Tyler put the car
 in drive and drove forward a few feet. Chris walked forward a few feet and knocked
on the window. 
“Come on man please,” Chris begged. 
Tyler clicked the door and this time Chris was able to get in.
 “You’re such a puss Chris. I shoulda made you walk home.” Tyler laughed at him before
 turning the volume of the music up high so that no one was able to talk the entire ride home. 
Amy felt her phone vibrate in her pocket and she slid the phone out to see a text from Chris.

What a cute story.  Amy goes to visit her Grandma while her parents go to Paris.  She wasn’t really looking forward to going.  Once she is there she meets the neighbors grandson and his friends and they become friends.  I like that her and Chris become friends and even go on a date.  Poor Amy thinks that her and Chris are just friends when he wants a bit more – then Amy is left with Chris cute older brother who is drunk.  He is drunk and kisses her telling her that she is his girlfriend.  She believes him and is surprised he doesn’t contact her when she returns right away.  Then he does occasionally but is it Tyler texting her?

I liked the story because it is really what most teenagers would love do, to go some place where no one knows you and make friends.  They don’t know what your life is back home. You can be different – no one thinks of you as the smart nerd or the dorky girl who said something dumb in class.   I think this is a great book for teenage girls and anyone else who likes to read about a first love.

  • Title: The Preacher and the Prostitute
  • Author: Brenda Barrett
  • Genre: Romance
  • Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/MFY3jK

Book Synopsis:

Maribel struggled to forget her past, when she dabbled in prostitution, made porn videos and was a nude poster girl. She became a Christian and made a decision to use her singing talent to glorify God. However, she quickly realized that a young, single, attractive, talented girl was never going to remain unnoticed at church.
First, she captures the attention of a jealous church sister who is determined to dig into her mysterious past and then the new pastor who seemed to reciprocate her affection. After falling in love with him, her past rears its ugly head and Maribel realizes that she has to tell her new found love the truth about her history before she can accept his marriage proposal. Can a preacher and an ex- prostitute be happy together?

About the Author

Books have always been a big part of life for Jamaican born Brenda Barrett. From as far back as age seven she read her first novel, a wartime love story which took her three days to read because she had no pictures to follow. Seeing her love for reading, and the voracious way she devoured all the ‘grown up’ books in the bookcase, her mother fanned the flames of her obsession by borrowing books from the local library which she deemed age appropriate.
The addiction to books continued through the years and presently she reports that she gets withdrawal symptoms if she does not consume at least four books per week. That is all she can manage these days as her days are filled with writing, a natural progression from her love of reading.
Besides “The Preacher and the Prostitute”, Brenda has six other books, with her eight book (Private Sins) scheduled for release on October 17, 2012.

You can Connect with Brenda Barrett Here:

I think this is one of the best books I have read in along time. I finished this book in one sitting.  Once I started reading it I could not put it down.  I loved the characters.
Maribel past was not the best she left home at the age of 17 because of an abusive father.  She found a friend on the streets who helped her but her help was lead her into a prostitution and making pron videos and posters. One day her friend was shot right in front of her ~ Maribel decided that she needed to make a change. 
Maribel became got some education and started going to church.  She worked hard at changing her life and becoming more a part of the church.  She was very attractive and had a wonderful singing voice she didn’t want to be noticed but she was. She was notice by the new single good lucky pastor. Sometimes the past is too hard to keep hidden and more often than not everyone has something that is better left in the past.
I don’t want to spoil the story for you but I am sure you will love the book as much as I did. I did shed some tears for Maribel and I cheered for her too.

Thank you for stopping at my spot on Dog-Ma: The Zen of Slobber Book Tour. This Online Book Tour is brought to you by Virtual  Book Tours Cafe. I will provide you with a synopsis of the book, review, excerpt and a small bio from Barbara Brunner. Visit the other blogs on this Book Tour to learn more about this book.
Barbara’s vivid and dramatic stories, told with a wicked sense of humor, will make you laugh out loud. She definitely gets what living with rescued dogs (nine of them!) is all about.
When Barbara meets her future husband, Ray, it is love-and dog-at first sight. Over the course of thirty-two years, seventeen relocations and nine dogs, their mutual love of dogs guides them on their unconventional path. The love that Barbara and Ray get in return is literally lifesaving, with one dog attacking a lethal intruder and another discovering Barbara’s cancer. Her own survival story underscores the story of how her dogs become survivors themselves.
Each new dog adds its own dynamic to the family, sometimes upending it. From Turbo (whose Spock-like ears may have provided super powers), Barbara learns about the will to live; Lexington demonstrates incredible patience and an inexplicable love of golf; Madison teaches that laughter is truly the best medicine and that the whole “nine lives thing” is not reserved just for cats; Morgan should be sainted for tolerating Izzy, who is as cute as she is bad. Barbara is certain that somewhere in doggie heaven there is a poster that says “If you are sick, injured or in need of really expensive medical care, FIND THESE HUMANS!”

Houdini in a Dog Suit
At six months old, Madison got her first Invisible Fence collar.  It was huge on such a tiny little girl; a box three inches long and two inches square.  I think it weighed as much as her head.  She had been very good staying by Lexi’s side but we knew that would not last forever.  My office was in our guest wing and I had a wonderful view of the yard from my windows.  I had no hesitation leaving the three dogs free to roam their yard during the day.  One day I noticed Madison getting closer and closer to the fence limit and with a twenty-five-foot head start, ran at full speed and jumped at exactly the right moment to jump OVER the fence’s radio field.  Off she went.  By the time I got out to the yard she was gone.
We had a runner.
An hour later I found her at a home almost a mile away, standing in front of the kennels for their hunting dogs.  She was trying to break them out.  She was her father’s daughter. Once a hoodlum, always a hoodlum.
Kennel breaking was a skill Madison would become famous for.  When we traveled, we would board the dogs with our veterinarian.  In the morning they would arrive and find all of the boarded dogs running loose in the building.  This occurred every night and only when Madison boarded.  She could open a simple gate latch with her nose.  The hoop catches took a little more skill, needing both nose and paws.  She figured them all out quickly.  She even learned to open a peg latch with a twist bolt.  Madison had issues with confinement.  They finally had to put a combination lock on her kennel and retired it with fanfare the day we moved away.  Their nickname for her was:
“Houdini in a Dog Suit.”


Barbara grew up in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania with her parents, sister and always a dog, or two or three. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from a small women’s college in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. Meeting her husband in Washington, DC, they continued together on a journey as self-proclaimed dog addicts. In the ensuing years, she founded three successful businesses in the Pacific Northwest and is a prolific fundraiser for breast cancer research. She and her husband are retired and now reside in Southwest Florida with two dogs and copious amounts of dog fur. She is currently working on indulging her well known flip flop addiction.

For more information about DOG-MA, THE ZEN OF SLOBBER,
please contact the author at barbarabrunner@me.com  or 941-347-8269.
I am normally not a dog person or do I read much about dogs.  When I read about Dog-Ma I thought what a cute story.  I really did enjoy reading Dog-Ma: The Zen of Slobber.  Barbara told the story in short little chapters that were easy and very entertaining to read.  
My favorite stories were of Kashi and how she found who the next dog was to be adopted.  How she always found the dog that was the underdog, and how she played with them as they were getting sick and invented games for them so they could still play but not run around as much.
I think anyone who loves animals would find this as a good and quick read.  You will find yourself laughing  and crying with each chapter.

One e-book.  Must be 13+ and follow Kaisy Daisy’s Corner in at least one way.  Contest ends Oct 31st.

Thank you for stopping at my spot on Fearless Love Book Tour. This Online Book Tour is brought to you by Goddess Fish Promotions. I will provide you with a synopsis of the book, review, and a small bio from Meg Benjamin. Visit the other blogs on this Book Tour to learn more about this book.


MG Carmody never figured her musical dreams would crash against the reality of Nashville. Now the only thing she has going for her is her late grandfather’s chicken farm, which comes with molting hens that won’t lay, one irascible rooster, and a huge mortgage held by a ruthless opponent—her Great Aunt Nedda.

With fewer eggs to sell, MG needs extra money, fast. Even if it means carving out time for a job as a prep cook at The Rose—and resisting her attraction to its sexy head chef.

Joe LeBlanc has problems of his own. He’s got a kitchen full of temperamental cooks—one of whom is a sneak thief—a demanding cooking competition to prepare for, and an attraction to MG that could easily boil over into something tasty. If he could figure out the cause of the shy beauty’s lack of self confidence.

In Joe’s arms, MG’s heart begins to find its voice. But between kitchen thieves, performance anxiety, saucy saboteurs, greedy relatives, and one very pissed-off rooster, the chances of them ever making sweet music are looking slimmer by the day.


Meg Benjamin is an award-winning author of contemporary romance. Her Konigsburg series for Samhain Publishing is set in the Texas Hill Country. Book #3, Be My Baby, won a 2011 EPIC Award for Contemporary Romance. Book #4, Long Time Gone, received the Romantic Times Reviewers’ Choice Award for Indie Press Romance. Book #5, Brand New Me, won the Holt Medallion from Virginia Romance Writers and was nominated for Book Of the Year at Long and Short Reviews. Meg lives in Colorado with her DH and two rather large Maine coon kitties (well, partly Maine Coon anyway).

I really enjoyed this story and could not put it down.  I really liked the characters they were well described and  fit perfect for the story.

MG Carmody moved from Nashville to take care of her sick grandpa.  When her grandfather died he left his small chicken farm to MG and told her not to sell it.  She really didn’t know too much about chickens and really was not making much money selling the eggs.  She needed to find something else to help pay the mortgage.

Joe LeBlanc was jogging past MG farm when he saw her and stopped. He offered to buy the eggs daily from her and also offered her a job at the Rose restaurant that he was the Head Chef at. Once working there Joe and MG got to know each other and started dating. 
MG also started singing in some local clubs to help make extra money to help make ends meet.  That was her love – playing her guitar, writing, and singing.  
You will need to read the story to see what happens, does MG continue to sing? What happens with her and Joe?  I think you will enjoy this book as much as I did.  I am also going to read some of the other books that Meg wrote.  I am sure they will be as interesting as this one.

Meg will be awarding a $10.00 Gift Card, winner’s choice, for Amazon, Sur la Table, iTunes, or Lush to a randomly drawn commenter during the tour.

The inspiring stories include: Botevy’s life and death struggle through Pol Pot’s killing fields that led her ultimately to create an orphanage in Phnom Penh.

How can our family plan a volunteer vacation? How can I save money for retirement? How much should I contribute to my 401k? Can I use Mint to manage my budget? How to retire early enough to devote healthy years to volunteering?

I thought this was a very interesting book.   I have many times struggled and this book gives some practical advice on ways to over come your struggles.  I also found it very easy to understand. It also makes you think and see how you are really blessed in your life.  It also showed how you could give back and it doesn’t have to cost a lot – you just have to give a little of yourself.

I think that if you are struggling, in debt or want to know how to start giving back this book will steer you in the right direction. This book will make you feel that you can help change the world, just by giving a little time.  It made me want to do more volunteering and has showed me I have a lot to give!
