This year has flown by. Here we are in December with Christmas and the Holiday Spirit touching all of us. It's a busy time of year, and if you're looking for a sweet read for the Holidays, than you might enjoy this book.

Twelve Nights
Sharon Struth

For Erik Lindholm, it’s been a long climb to the top of his company. Now, as president he has the power to bring his vision to life and speed his company in bold new directions. If that means a complete staff overhaul, so be it. If that means firing the woman who left his heart in tatters fifteen years earlier, it’s a business decision, not personal…

Beryl Foster is highly competent and respected by everyone at the office. But rumors of a big shake-up are rampant and—surprisingly, scarily—Beryl’s job as CFO is on the line. Fifteen years ago she made a decision to put her career before everything else. It was also the last time she and Erik shared a life together. Every Christmas is a reminder. This one could be a second chance…

Cathrina's Review: 

Another wonderful read by Sharon Struth, which I thoroughly enjoyed!!

This novel is sweet and heart touching. I couldn't read it fast enough. It's hard and sad when two people give up love for their ambitious careers. 

Fourteen years after their break-up, Erik and Beryl come face to face. Erik is hired as  Beryl's boss. And, Beryl sees the writing on the wall and excepts her pink slip any day. When Erik see's Beryl for the first time, old feelings begin to rekindle, for both of them...

They gave their love away. Is it too late for them?

Now ~ head over to read Nana Prah and Empi Baryeh's reviews.

It's been a rough month of insecurities. And it's the same old story. Feelings of doubt, not producing fast enough, my writing isn't good enough.... and blah...blah...blah.... I feel as if all my stories have dried up like a grape left out in the sun to shrivel. I've been racking my brain to create a new tale. Nothing is popping into my thick skull.  

Then life ~ wonderful, glorious life manages to steal all my time. Finding time to write is like searching for that needle in a haystack ~ it's not going to happen.

One of my many problems comes from needing to reread what I last wrote, whether it was hours earlier or days prior, and then settle down and put my writing cap on. It takes my brain almost 15 to 30 minutes to construct a paragraph or two.... time is ticking.... and then I'm needed elsewhere...

Have I complained and bellyached enough? I believe so....

Do you have any insecurities this month? 

Or ~ How has your creativity in life evolved since you began writing?

New Releases and books I've read and Enjoyed

Supernatural beings and the evils of humanity come alive in these grim, dark tales with a twist.


Doctor Comfort Djan is looking for salvation after a tragic accident, which takes her to deprived regions where her skills heal the helpless. Until Fate thrusts her as a medic on board a West African military coastal protection ship. Proving herself to the male-only crew is nothing compared to being near one intense naval officer who has her feeling something other than her survivor's guilt.

Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Healing-His-Medic-Protectors-Book-ebook/dp/B07HJ3LZNP?crid=14Y6UO7Y6IV7B&keywords=healing+his+medic&qid=1540811342&s=Kindle+Store&sprefix=healing+his+med%2Cdigital-text%2C142&sr=1-1-catcorr&ref=sr_1_1

The 3rd installment of A Throne of Glass series.
Celaena has survived deadly contests and shattering heartbreak-but at an unspeakable cost. Now, she must travel to a new land to confront her darkest truth . . . a truth about her heritage that could change her life-and her future-forever. Meanwhile, brutal and monstrous forces are gathering on the horizon, intent on enslaving her world. Will Celaena find the strength to not only fight her inner demons, but to take on the evil that is about to be unleashed?

The bestselling series that has captured readers all over the world reaches new heights in this sequel to the New York Times best-selling Crown of Midnight. Packed with heart-pounding action, fierce new characters, and swoon-worthy romance, this third book will enthrall readers from start to finish.


The Luxe is the first book in the New York Times bestselling Luxe series by Anna Godbersen.
In a world of luxury and deception, where appearance matters above everything and breaking the social code means running the risk of being ostracized forever, five teenagers lead dangerously scandalous lives. This thrilling trip to the age of innocence is anything but innocent.

Most girls dream of being princesses, but one princess just wants to be a normal girl.

Ella Carina, crown princess of Aelawyn, knows brutality and lies—she’s seen the way her father rules. Princess. Possession. To her father, the words had the same meaning. She was only as valuable as the alliance formed with her betrothal. Her freedom comes from an unlikely place: an attack on the castle.

When the conquering King offers to protect her from the betrothal her father arranged for political gain, she consents. Hiding her within a peasant family is the only way to keep her and her secret safe. 

In this simpler life, Ella flourishes and catches the eye of the local Blacksmith’s son. For once, she can be herself and make her own choices, but the life of a princess—even one kept secret—was never meant to be easy. 

Trevor, crown prince of Galder has been searching for Ella, but not because of their betrothal. She is in grave danger from the very people who hid her away. His plan is to show her the truth and help her to safety. 

Nothing goes as planned. When Trevor finds her, it’s to discover she’s fallen in love with a peasant. Now he has two goals: help her regain her throne… and show her that she belongs with him. 

It happened several years ago now. My name is Anna Hall and I am the High Priestess of the Briar Glen Covenant of Earth Magic. We are white witches and I’m going to tell you a story. It will make you question your reality and the appearance of things and people around you. I was shocked when an angel and a demon appeared and shook our small community to its core. It was at the end of September and all through October that the town came alive, alive with spirits from the underworld. And my coven sent the demons back to Hell. That is, all except for one.
