I can smell the lilacs. Time travel has always captured my imagination, When Lilacs Bloom by Nell DuVall takes me there. I became enmeshed in the story and with the characters. Nell DuVall's wonderfully imaginative and inventive book draws the reader into its fantastical web of time travel. Libby, a modern independent woman, travels to the 19th century to meet her fate and her soul mate. Libby buys and starts extensive restoration on Mohr House. While researching the history of the house, Libby becomes intrigued by James Mohr's live and events of the 1840. Ms.DuVall's detailed, beautifully written story enables the reader to feel as if they are living and breathing the 1842 era. The story was very well researched and did a great job blending fiction with history. 
Selvage     A bank scam, a series of accidents that end as murders, and police too ready to accept simple explanations for deaths push freelance writer Brooke Beldon and systems programmer Paul Counts ever deeper into a tangled conspiracy.

Nice cozy mystery
ByAmazon-Kundeon November 28, 2012
Format: Kindle Edition
Selvage is an intricate, well-written, but rather cozy mystery developing at a slow pace with too little tension and conflict for my taste. The two main characters are a bit naive but tough and persevering. Doesn't happen too often that a computer nerd becomes amateur sleuth and Paul is quite convincing in this roll, although a little too single-minded to really come alive. I really liked the ending, but of course, I can't say why or I'd ruin the fun for others.
Murder in Her Dreams     Cassie Blake lives with guilt because she failed to heed her dreams and a young girl died. Now, a year later a handsome man and a vicious feral rabbit haunt her dreams.

Cassie dreams of Ian's danger, even though she has never met him, and since her last dream series turned out disastrously, she is convinced this time she can make a difference. The plot develops slowly and methodically, making this a great beach read -- or maybe in the hammock in your back yard. Tidy red herrings and great characters make this a perfect reader's choice.

I just had the pleasure of reading "Saving Marta", a short story by Nell DuVall (which also appears in the anthology, Christmas Wishes 2012). If you love romance and holiday-themed stories, this one is really cute.

It revolves around Marta, an elderly woman who's just had a hip replacement surgery. Her divorced son, Jason, is the only one in the family left to care for her, and he's worried. As Marta recuperates in a nursing facility, she seems to be getting depressed and won't commit to her therapy. She ends up making a bargain with her son--if he can find a good woman to marry, she'll cooperate with her recovery team.

Is an Anthology of different stories about Christmas by five different authors. I loved them all but two of my favorites were Uncle Albert's Christmas by Jenny Twist and On the Way to the Snowball by Brenda White side. A fun entertaining read each story is a little different. I was given a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

This anthology is aptly named as it brings a warm glow to your heart with each of these wonderful Christmas tales. You can expect to find magic, charm, love and happiness within. A fabulous group of authors come together resulting in an anthology that no one should be without at Christmas. If you want to know what Christmas is all about, read this book. You'll find all the answers inside.
