Holden Scott is the prince of professional football. At least he was before he lost it all . . . 
or more to the point, before he threw it all away. Now he's out of a job, out of the public's 
good graces, and perhaps just a little out of his mind. So when a friend offers up his remote
 lodge in the wilds of Colorado, giving Holden some time away to get his life back on track, 
he can hardly say no. The last thing he expects is to see a beautiful girl in the woods—
one wearing a , lace dress who appears in the moonlight, and leaves no footprints behind.
 Is she a dream? A ghost? A product of his muddled imagination? Or something entirely different?

Midnight Lily is the haunting love story of two lost souls reaching for each other in the dark.
 A tale of healing, acceptance, and the worlds we create to protect our own hearts. It is a story of 
being lost, of being found, and of being in the place between.

I can't tell you how excited I am to be reviewing the latest Sign Of Love Installment 
by Mia Sheridan!
I decided very early when I was taking notes for my review that I couldn't possibly pick 
apart the story for you the way I usually do, and the reason is simply that this book- 
this gorgeously dreamed up story is a gift that you need to unwrap for yourself.

I will tell you that it is a bewitching and curious story narrated in alternate POV's. 
It's setting, which is beautifully depicted, conjures up a haunting ambiance and from the 
very first pages, I found myself asking the question that I know will be on everyone's lips...

Who Is Lily?

"I'd dreamed of her, over and over, visions that twisted and turned and caused me to 
wake up in a cold sweat, swearing her scent hung in the air all 
around me like a benediction"

Her innocence and beauty captivated me. Her gentility and pure heart seemed to be the 
perfect balm to heal his brokenness and her auspicious appearance in his life at pivotal 
moments was utterly fascinating...who is she???

"In the darkness, she held me in her arms. In the darkness, she whispered that 
I was strong enough to hold on, that I was worthy of the love she'd given, 
and she reminded me of who I was before I was anyone at all. My Lily Of The Night. 
Only of the moon. Because now, just as then, 
when daylight came, she was no longer there."

"The answer to this poignant question revealed itself suddenly, just as the book 
reached its spine-tingling crescendo, but then continued to reveal itself more 
and more, even after I had put the book down.
I could never have predicted where the story would take me or that it would arrive 
at the stunning conclusion it did. I was sincerely blown away and left perfectly speechless.
I found myself thinking about this story as I lay in bed at night, and as I went 
about my days thereafter. 
I. Just . Loved. It.

"If you go away, then I'll come find you, even if it means I have to get lost for a 
while too." She shook her head, her smile sweetly puzzled. "How will you be able 
to do that?" "Because," I said moving even closer so our bodies touched and she 
had to tip her head to look up at me, "I'm not afraid of the darkness. I've been 
there before. I'll Step into it willingly, unhesitatingly, and I"ll come find you. No 
one else could make that promise and mean it, Lily. No one. No one except me."

Another immaculately written 6 star read by Mia Sheridan!!

5 STAR READ!!! The Wonderful Story of Electricity by A.J. Neeson


The great scientific discoveries no doubt influence all of our lives each and everyday. But how many adults know the stories behind these discoveries or the underlying scientific principles at work? In this book, AJ Neeson shares the history of the central thing that makes our modern lifestyles possible, electricity. The Wonderful Story of Electricity takes parents and children on an amazing journey back to the time of the Vikings and the first magnets, across to Italy and the creation of the first battery and on to England where Michael Faraday's experiments culminated in the electric motor and the electric generator. AJ tells the story as it happened. His use of humour and rhyme encourages children and parents alike to laugh and learn. As readers will discover the story of electricity is a very peculiar and wondrous one indeed. The Wonderful Story of Electricity is a children's book, but it also aims to entertain and educate parents at the same time. 



This is the first kids picture book I've reviewed.
I normally stick to my adult genres, but this books was so great that
I had to share with you guys!
We all know how important reading to your kids is, and if you're anything like me you're always
peddling books to your kidlets. Books foster their imaginations, fill up their word bank and improve their listening and comprehension skills.
So it's important to find books that you know will captivate them, and let's be honest, you as well since you're usually doing the reading.

 The Wonderful Story of Electricity by A.J Neeson is one of those books!

I loved the originality, the rhythmic prose, and curious facts, which were as compelling for  me as they were for my 8yr old! This is a whimsical little read that lends itself to some fun rhyming, 
a clever way to ensure your child is learning lots without even realizing it!
From vikings and magnets to dead frogs and batteries, you'll be thoroughly entertained by the
fun narrative and quirky illustrations.

A 5 star read that you and your smalls will thoroughly enjoy!


AJ's mission is to raise the science general knowledge standards of young adults. To do this, he thought he should get to this audience well before adulthood and re-craft the real life stories of science into entertaining, funny and above all factual story books for children and their parents.

AJ lives with his young family in the Sydney coastal suburb of Bronte. He is father to Massimo and Chloe and Husband to loving wife Laura. During the day, Antony works as Creative Director of his media and creative agency. Of an evening, he spends time with his family, and when they are all tucked up in bed, writes stories that entertain, engage and educate young children and their parents.

One week. No future. No past. No more.
Alexandria Collins has one week to live carefree—no
ghosts of her past or pressures of her future haunting her. Reinventing
herself as "Charli," she is knocked off her feet by a sexy,
mysterious man who brings her pleasure like she never imagined.  With her
heart at stake, she forgets that decisions made in the dark of night reappear
in the bright light of day.

"Some of my tastes are unique. They aren’t for everyone. I
understand that.”

Lennox "Nox" Demetri is wealthy, confident,
and decisive—he knows what he wants. From the first time he sees Charli at an
exclusive resort, he knows he wants her. Although he is usually the one to make
the rules, together they agree on one:  

One week. No more.

When betrayal comes from those closest to
Alexandria, she must decide how far she is willing to go to survive. Choices
are not always easy, especially when they involve the heart, body, and soul. After
all, Infidelity is a business, and some rules are meant to be broken.

"Is it really cheating if you're doing it to

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling

and a strong-willed heroine who has plans of her own. With classic Aleatha Romig
twists, turns, deceptions, and devotions, this new epic dark romance will have
readers swooning one minute and screaming the next. Have you been Aleatha'd?

BETRAYAL is a full-length

I motioned around the patio. "Is this what you do? You save women from the resort leaches and lure them to your lair?"

"My lair? Am I Batman?"

"Are you? I don't know."

He smirked. "If only I could make a living at doing just that, but alas, no. You're my first rescue."

I stopped my reach for a piece of cheese and looked back up at him. "You're first?"

"My first rescue,” he clarified. “Hardly my first."


He lifted his glass toward me in a toast. After I lifted mine, he said, "To you, Charli with an I, and to learning more about you."

After our glasses clinked and we both took a sip, I asked the question that I'd been dying to know ever since our morning encounter. "You seem to have a clear advantage. You know my name, but I've yet to learn yours."

"Do I?"

"Do you what?"

"Do I have an advantage?” He leaned closer. “Do I know your name? You see, I had the resort's reservations scoured. I wanted to send a gift to your room and confirm our dinner, yet Charli was nowhere to be found."

I took a deep breath. "Well, I'm here with my sister. I guess my name isn't on the reservation."

"You're sister?"

"Yes, and you—if I were to have the reservations scoured?"

The sun had now fully set, falling below the water and the darkening sky was beginning to fill with stars, especially over the water. 

"Would you believe, Batman?" When I didn't respond, he said, "Bruce Wayne?"

Though I pursed my lips, I felt the twinkle in my eyes.

Merrick Thatcher went through a hell that no one could possibly imagine. He fought to protect his country, his family, and the men standing at his side, but it wasn't just being a soldier overseas that changed him. He watched his friends die in front of him, felt indescribable pain, and lost his sight in the very same moment.

Badly injured, blind, and angry, he's done with war, but now he’s fighting his own battle. So, he’s waiting for it to end, spending his days and nights in a thick darkness no light can penetrate. Until Grace walks into his life and his broken eyes open to a woman that changes everything for him.

Like many other foundations, the Special Operations Warrior Foundation provides assistance to injured soldiers as well as their families. SOWF also focuses on one of the most important challenges those families face; 'getting to their hospitalized loved ones as quickly as possible'. With grants immediately provided to the family, they can travel to be bedside with their loved one, especially for those crucial first days. SOWF also provides a scholarship program, family services (including clinical social workers, scholarship counselors, and family services counselors). With on-going support and helpful counseling to all families of fallen members in every branch of the military, they are able to help in all the ways that count. The SOWF was highly recommended to me by a recent veteran who served in Iraq. Therefore, I am thrilled to be able to help them in any way possible. Every little bit counts.

I felt her hand rest on my arm, stopping me from rolling away and getting the hell away from her before I said something stupid.
"I know you don't remember me from before, but I ..." Her words trailed off, her fingers constricting against my skin.
God, if I could just touch her, I wouldn't need to ask questions. I would be able to feel every soft curve and edge, and I wouldn't need anything more than that. If I could just touch her.
"I was never one of those girls that you found yourself with all too often."
I frowned and leaned forward, waiting for an explanation. I had no idea what she was talking about. Of course she wasn't one of those girls. She was real and sweet, compassionate and smart. Those other girls were just fake. The pretty was only on the outside.
"I was never really pretty. At least not the pretty that everyone would have seen. I was kind of awkward and nerdy, but rounder in areas where other girls were flat. Still am. Does that make sense?"
I hesitated before nodding my understanding, grinning when I envisioned her. "So you're telling me that you look like a real woman and not a stick?"
She gasped and pulled her hand away from my arm. "I didn't say that."
I waited for her to continue. Anything that would give me a better picture of her. She stayed silent. I was starting to feel like the air around me was too thick to breathe.
Grace cleared her throat and shifted in her chair. I wanted to know what she was doing with her hands. Was she wringing them together? Were they in her lap? In her hair? Was she looking at me or trying to avoid that?
"I'm just me," she said, quietly.
"You're beautiful." The words left my mouth without my prompting, but there was nothing inside of me that wanted to take them back.
She released a self-deprecating laugh and, again, I wondered what she was doing with her hands.
"I may be blind, Grace. But I can still see some things."


I live in Morgan, Utah with my husband, beautiful daughter, and a couple of spoiled pups. If I'm not deeply involved in writing my next book, then I'm probably reading in the safety and quiet of my closet. I love yoga – which I now practice regularly – playing hide and seek with my daughter (only to have my hiding spots revealed by one of the pups), and I love Fruit by the Foot, Twizzlers and Peace Tea. These are great ways to bribe me into revealing secrets about what's to come.
I have an unhealthy obsession with Supernatural, The Walking Dead, and The Big Bang Theory. I also enjoy talking about them, so if you like them, too, come find me.
Writing has become an enormous part of my life and every book I write holds a special place in my heart.  If you read one of my books, I hope you have the same experience.
