Letting go of anger is life’s greatest challenge.

Vanessa hasn’t been the same since her father’s death. A hero until the end, he died saving a restaurant owner’s son from a burning building. Nessa blames the boy, but her best friend Nichole thinks it’s time to let go of the past. In a last ditch effort to break Nessa’s obsession, Nichole hopes signing up for the local food challenge will bust her out of her shell. A single choice defines the road ahead for Nessa. Doing the right thing isn’t easy, but living with the consequences of doing nothing might be worse.

Book Reviews: Time for Books 2015 Review Team

Badge It’s a new year and a new me. I’ve been reading more and more Indie books. Why? Why would I risk my lovely reading time with books that might not be my cup of tea? Ah, that’s where you’re wrong. They ARE my cup of tea. I’ve found some fabulous writers through my Indie readings – just look at my Indie Stars page. I want to support my fellow Indie authors by reading and reviewing their works, to find the gems and support and promote them any way I can. The first step is to read them and then tell everyone about how much I liked their book and why it’s so fabulous(i.e. review). You can see my review policy here. I think Jo Michaels is a great and successful supporter of Indie authors and I want to be a part of her 2015 review team. If you’re interested, have a look at Jo Michaels’ review team page on her blog.

My commitment to the cause is a Hungry 21-40 books for 2015 but I really want to reach 50 (half my reading goal list of 100 books this year).
