Review Rating: 5 Stars – Congratulations on your 5-star review!

Reviewed By Natalie Soine for Readers’ Favorite

The Mountaineer’s Painting: A Ghost Story by David Francis Curran tells the story of Kevin Frost, who feels compelled to drop everything that he is currently working on to go in search of the artist and anybody who may know something about a painting that he purchased from a yard sale. Kevin hangs the scenic painting in his bedroom and, as he sleeps, he starts to have dreams about a group of mountain climbers and a tragic accident that may not have been an accident at all. Kevin investigates the untimely death of a climber and in the process learns everything he can about mountain climbing, the rest of the climbers who were part of the group when the accident occurred, and the deceased climber’s widow.

What a delightful, enjoyable story. David Francis Curran includes images of basic equipment and there is a key to their purpose at the end of the book. The Mountaineer’s Painting is well written with many lively characters that we can all relate to, an exciting story, and a compelling plot that is well thought out. This novel is a quick, easy read filled with intrigue and anticipation, all keeping the reader interested from beginning to end. I enjoyed this unusual story and the pictures make a nice change. The author introduces the main character in the beginning so that the reader can create a mental picture of what he would look like. The interwoven twists, turns, and intrigue of people’s lives make for a thrilling novel. There are no negative aspects to this story, and with no bad language or erotic scenes, it is suitable for all ages. A well-earned five out of five!

“Elise Sax will win your heart.”—New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis

My name’s Gladie Burger, and my Grandma Zelda says that I have “The Gift.” That means that I’m going to be a great matchmaker, and it probably means that I can know things that can’t be known.

Just like my grandma.

She knows who should be matched with who, and she also knows what the weather’s going to be weeks in advance. Some people call that a Third Eye. Some people call it psychic. Some people call it weird.

I’m betting Grandma is wrong. The only “gift” I’ve had in my life is not being able to hold down a job. I might have a commitment problem.

But I’m helping her out in the matchmaking business, anyway. So far, I haven’t made a match, and now after our neighbor across the street fell, hit his head, and died, I can’t stop thinking that maybe his death was no accident.

Maybe it was murder.

I may have commitment issues, but I seem totally committed to finding out if he was murdered and who murdered him.
The annoying Chief of Police—who unfortunately turns my insides into molten estrogen jelly—thinks I should be committed for sticking my nose in where it doesn’t belong.

Luckily, another neighbor is just as hot as the Chief, and he’s more than happy to support my sleuthing. Ditto my best friends Bridget and Lucy.

It’s a toss-up if I’ll solve this mystery, get killed in the process, get arrested, or find true love.

An Affair to Dismember is the first book in the Matchmaker Mysteries series. It is a humorous and romantic small-town mystery. Matchmaker Mysteries… Sometimes love comes with a few dead ends.

Marked Wolf Tarot

Nova doesn’t live a good life. No family, no magic, and definitely no love.
But that all changes when she meets him and discovers his secret talent behind closed doors.

When their two worlds collide, they discover that no matter what anybody says, they are fated to be together. Their romance is written in the stars, and the primal love they share is sealed the first time he . . . heals her.


Since she was ten, her criminal father brought her into a life of theft. Every job gets them by for a little while, but their new one? It has the potential to bring them a bounty like they’ve never seen.

The Moon Diamond is said to possess magical powers, but it’s guarded by a security system unlike any other. So, Nova might be the only person who can crack it and get her hands on that diamond. After all, there’s never been a system she couldn’t break into before.

But when the mark of the Tarot’s Fool appears on her wrist, things are set into motion that can’t be undone.

Sent to an academy where she faces a love triangle between a vampire and a wolf, this steamy, fast-burn romance is enough to make a girl’s head spin.

Oh, and that mark?

It’s a sign of the next Moon Goddess—which hasn’t happened in a hundred years.

Two wolf shifters. A forbidden romance that’s meant to be. A vampire and a wolf fighting for her affection.

And she’s still supposed to save the world?

There’s not enough magic in the world to piece her back together, but her wolf in shining armor is damned sure going to try.

Princess of Wolves

No, stop, you’re not supposed to like him.

All your life you’ve been told that you would marry Triton Amerson and that would be that. You don’t get a say on who or what you want to you. You’re the firstborn, the next in line of the throne, you’re the Alpha Princess of Wolves.

Stop thinking about how good he smells; the way his cheeks dimple when he smiles.

You resign yourself to a life of not wanting to get close to him. To give in means you’re accepting your fate. You push him into the arms of another.

The last thing you want to do is fall in love with him, but it’s happening.

Push and pull, you don’t know what to do with yourself as your feelings grow stronger. How are you supposed to cope with life when the one you’re falling for thinks you don’t want anything to do with him? There’s only one thing you can do, be the princess that you are, the Princess of Wolves.

The Mortality Bites Series takes place in the GoneGod World…a unique setting of myths, magic and mischief. But what is the GoneGod World?

Four years ago, the gods left. All of them. Their last message to humanity was “Thank you for believing in us, but it is not enough. We’re leaving. Good luck.”

At first no one took them seriously. Until, that is, all the denizens of all the heavens and hells started showing up on people’s doorsteps. Creatures from every religion, mythology, folklore or fairytale now live among us, mortal and homeless.

Trouble is, after eons of living forever, elves, dragons, dwarves, oni-demons, even friggin’ Medusa aren’t very good at being mortal.

Welcome to the GoneGod World…where myths are real and mortality bites.
