Editor’s Note: Here’s a hilarious laugh out loud book that had us rolling out of our chairs. Be careful when you read this book as it will leave you in stitches!
This is a really original and very funny book.
Book Description: THE VILLAGE IDIOT REVIEWS is a book about a small Village containing, you guessed it, Idiots. All out to either make each others lives a little bit worse or to try and find a life partner. Written entirely in the form of amazon product reviews this is something that hasn’t been done before. A laugh out loud british comedy.
Fans of Nick Spalding and David Jester will love THE VILLAGE IDIOT REVIEWS.
Author’s Inspiration: I wanted to make myself and my friends laugh with funny reviews. Then I started linking them up and intertwining them and I ended up with a book.
Actor Who Would Play the Main Character: Dudley Moore, thirty years ago.
From the Book: A REVIEW FOR A PAIR OF UNDERPANTS
A sturdy hold, but I think there was something up with the material.
Living alone, I need to keep a substantial number of Y-fronts at any one time. This is due to how far away my mother lives away and not owning a washing machine myself. A couple of these three packs were perfect for my needs.
I must say as I pulled on a fresh pair on the day of delivery, I instantly noticed how supporting they were of little Frank and his two pet bulldogs. They were a very soft feel and made me feel all warm and tingly. Not like some pairs I’ve owned that made poor Frank feel like he was being kettled during a peaceful protest turned bad.
This book is free 5/7.
Editor’s Note: Relive your first love in this amazing prequel to the Emi Lost and Found series. It will suck you into the story and have you fall in love with these characters.
These characters are so real, and the story so sweet and intimate and absolutely honest, I was completely drawn in.
Book Description: Broken-hearted Nate is a loner in high school. New girl Emi is mad at the world after discovering her father’s infidelity. These two fast friends have what it takes for a remarkable romance, but a romance isn’t what either needs – yet. This is the prequel to the Emi Lost and Found series.
Readers who love Twilight and Reckless will enjoy NOT TODAY, BUT SOMEDAY.
Author’s Inspiration: A bad review actually inspired me to write this. I’d written the Emi Lost & Found series, and someone gave me a low rating because she expected more of a backstory between Emi and Nate. I was motivated to give her that!
Actor Who Would Play the Main Character: Robert Pattinson and Emma Stone
From the Book: If I believed in fate and happily ever after and– hell, even love– I might be excited about this. He’s just my type… except for that whole arrogance thing. How does someone like that get to be so cocky, anyway? Sure, he’s cute, but he’s not all that. He’s too skinny to be all that. But his hair is cool… dark brown with reddish highlights. I don’t think that’s his real hair color, though. Hovering over his eyes are brows that were much lighter. The fuzz on his chin is almost blonde, too. And he has nice skin. And that smile. My stomach feels queasy, remembering his smile as I left the art room.
This book is free 5/7 – 5/31.

This is a story that captured every sense engaging the reader from the first page.
Book Description: Lily Parkins flees a failed marriage among the privileged set and returns to her grandmother’s old farmhouse, now a converted B&B in the lush Pacific Northwest. Left with only an old guestbook as her guide–a curious book full of letters, recipes Lily is determined to embrace her independence and recreate herself, one page at a time. But as soon as she has sworn off men and is standing on her own two feet, Lily meets Ian, the alluring artist who lives next door, and her new life is suddenly thrown off course.
Ultimately, Lily must decide if it’s worth giving up her soul for security or risking everything to follow her heart and her.
Fans of Debbie MacComber and Susan Wiggs will enjoy THE GUESTBOOK.
Author’s Inspiration: I was visiting a Bed and Breakfast on an island in the Pacific NW and the stories in the Guestbook inspired me to write a book based on a very special Guestbook. I love island living, great food and the good friends small town life brings.
From the Book: The Washington State ferry cut through the ocean currents much the way Lily was cutting through her life: swiftly, mercilessly, and with a clear destination–Madrona Island. Lily lifted her head to the wind, enjoying the view from the upper deck. A faint silhouette of land emerged through the low-floating fog. She gripped the icy hand railing as the butterflies in her stomach turned to knots.
Doubt crept in like the morning fog. Have I made the right decision to come here? A ray of sun pierced the clouds and lit the water with a thousand glittering flashbulbs. The lush green of the island shore beckoned in the distance, and the sound of lapping waves called to her.
This book is free 5/6-5/9.

Author’s Inspiration: I am a veterinarian and the main character, Jake, is based on a black lab mix who was brought in to be treated by animal control. It also gave me the idea about what it would be like to have your pet choose you.
From the Book: “I have taught you all that you need to know to be good and faithful companions to your new owners. Today is the day that you will meet them. I will miss you all terribly, but it is time for us to part.” After she finished explaining what was going to happen, she pulled Jake aside.
