Wade had just receded into himself, into the chasm of despair that dwelled within the walls of his soul.

This was his fault. That was the bottom line. This was his fault. It all stemmed back to the day of the accident when his baby died.
It stemmed back to that split second when he was at the beach party with Merissa and she’d tried to stop him from going off with George. If he could go back in time and change things he’d go back to that point.

That was the point of decision. His right or left moment in life. He choose to go with George and everything went to hell. It meant that everything from that point was destined for disaster.

Even the good, like being with Chloe.

“Chloe,” he breathed. It was the first thing he’d said since the police took him in custody.

He prayed that wherever she was she was safe….

Book Excerpt The Kidnapping of Senator Andy Thompson

Senators Andy Thompson and Hunt Wagner lead the way in a spirited debate on a new health care bill and whether or not to stop President Robinson and Secretary Von Schumann from sending troops to Botswana. A real adventure begins when Senator Thompson is kidnapped and Brian Travors, the Deputy Assistant Secretary of State is suspected of being involved. Senators Hunt Wagner and Darius Clemens head a committee hearing to get to the truth. President Robinson suffers a heart attack and Vice-President Barry Newman takes over temporarily.

Book Excerpt

“Mr. President, my distinguished colleagues, I rise to support this resolution and to put the Senate on record as being opposed to sending our boys to fight in what is mostly a civil war between Botswana and Mozambique. We cannot and we must not repeat Vietnam. We are the most powerful nation in the world but, we cannot send our troops everywhere. We must have a foreign policy, which dictates our national priorities. This Administra-tion needs to form a better strategy for our national foreign policy. I yield the floor.”

Senator Wagner rose to speak. “I ask for the ayes and nays on this resolution.”

Senator Gibson announced. “The clerk will call the roll.”

“Mr. Atkins, Mr. Blakely, Mr. Bauman, Mr. Clemens, Mr. Coleman, Mr. Connors, Mr. Dion, Ms. DuBois, Mr. Evans, Ms. Ferreira, Mr. Gain, Mr. Gibson, Mr. Iannotti,…”

“On this resolution, the vote was eighty-five yes, and fifteen nay, the resolution is agreed to.”

Hunt and Andy were proud of themselves because they had taken a step forward. Now it was up to the president. What would he do? How would he react? No one really knew.

President Kirk Robinson sulked in the chair in the Oval Office. Why was everything going so wrong for him when it had all started out so good? The first few months of his administration he had succeeded in getting three major bills passed through the Congress, one of them being the Budget Act, but somehow everything suddenly went wrong and now he was the bad guy. It seemed to be the doings of two men, Secretary von Schumann, his Secretary of State, and the Deputy Assistant Secretary of State, Brian Travors. They were truly bad news.

Why did I ever bother to nominate them? They have been nothing but trouble. He decided to call Senator Bauman because he needed to reach out to the members of the Senate and now was the time.

Book Review: The Carpet Weaver of Isfahan

Title: The Carpet Weaver of Isfahan
Author: Shmuel Peretz
Genre: Mystery, Suspense
Age Group: Adult
Rating: 4,5 stars
Purchase: Amazon
Review copy provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Shmuel Perets’s novel, “The Carpet Weaver of Isfahan”, will satisfy fans of “A Thousand Splendid Suns” or “The Kite Runner” by Khaled Husseini. We can go so far as to include the hysterical hit “Q & A” (adapted for the screen as “Slumdog Millionaire”) – Kobi Kamin, Globus Tonight

“Shmuel Perets can tell a story… it’s a fine novel, whose original idea feeds the plot from beginning to end” – Elit Karp, Haaretz Literature

“Perets has concocted a page-turner that never turns off the suspense” – Tal Marmelstein, Israel Today

“A delight, highly recommended, you won’t be able to put it down” – Arit Israeli, Voice of the Galilee Radio

Daniel was wounded while serving in the Israeli Army. Still living with his parents, he cut himself off from the world, holed up in his room and kept his communication with anybody to a minimum. All this changes when their house is broken-into. An insurance appraiser, while checking Daniel’s room, proclaimed his small carpet is of the highest artistic craftsmanship, equivalent to a Van Gogh. This sparks something in Daniel and marks the beginning of his adventure. Daniel leaves for Canada and locates the merchant who sold the carpet to his father. There Daniel hears the story of the Carpet Weaver of Isfahan, an Iranian legend that tells of a gifted young girl who wove three magnificent carpets, but met with a tragic fate. Daniel purchases the second carpet from the merchant, and becomes fixated on locating the third carpet. He illegally enters Iran in search for the carpet weaver. In his journey he is followed by 3 secret services (Canada’s, Israel’s and Iran’s) each with a different agenda. Not aware of the international uproar he has caused, Daniel meets with the weaver and her daughter, falls in love and is beginning to heal. In the meantime a complex deal is being made to save him from a sure death and arrange his safe exit from Iran.

The Carpet Weaver Of Isfahan was originally published in Israel and was best seller for more than 2 years.

The Carpet Weaver of Isfahan has been a bestseller in Israel for more than two years, and I can easily understand why. The story goes as follows: while serving in the Israeli army, Daniel gets wounded. He’s still living with his parents and struggling with being injured, he cuts himself off from the world and holes himself up in his room, barely communicating with anyone. When their house is broken into and an insurance appraiser arrives afterwards, Daniel’s life is about to be turned upside down. The insurance appraiser checks Daniel’s room and proclaims his small carpet is of the highest artistic craftsmanship.

This sparks something in Daniel that brings back part of his old self. He leaves for Canada to locate the merchant who sold the carpet to his father. It’s there that he hears an Iranian legend about the Carpet Weaver of Isfahan, a sotry about a gifted young girl who wove three magnificent carpets before she was met with a tragic fate. Daniel purchases the second carpet from the merchant, and becomes obsessed with finding the third carpet. He’s willing to risk everything, even going so far as to enter Iran illegally, in search of the carpet weaver from the legend.

This was a rollercoaster adventure, and as a reader, you really see Daniel change, grow and transform throughout the book, from a withdrawn young man who is struggling with the horrors of life, to someone capable of making choices again, of facing life head on. He truly found himself again, and with that, he also found love, mystery, and joy in the most unlikely of places.

The only downside were the typos. The book had quite a few of them, and they often distracted me from my reading pleasure. But this was a minor nuisance, so don’t let it stop you from enjoying this amazing adventure about finding who you really are, and embracing life, with all its wonders and all its hardships.

About the Book

Title: Set You Free

Author: Elmer Seward

Genre: Suspense

Love, Lies, and the Secrets That Bind

Deena is running from a dangerous past.  When she finds herself in a small fishing village tucked away on the banks of the Chesapeake Bay, she thinks she is finally safe. While there, she discovers a journal that weaves a story of secrets, passion, and unrequited love.  In its pages, she discovers the answers to her struggle with the shadows of her own past.  In the end, those shadows close in on her and threaten all that she holds dear.

Author Bio

Elmer Seward was born and raised along the Chesapeake Bay in southeast Virginia.  Growing up, the cemetery behind his house was his playground.  The metaphorical theme of death and rebirth that figures prominently in his novels is probably influenced in some way by the time that his mother heard, through the screened window, a small voice crying for help.  Rushing from the house and through the yard, she discovered her all-too-curious six-year-old son at the bottom of a freshly dug grave.  In that moment, he discovered that trouble is much easier to get into than it is to get out of.  Sometimes we need help getting out of the hole that we jump into willingly.

He is blessed to have a large blended family.  He is also the reluctant servant of three crazy dogs, a Maltese, a Japanese Chin, and a BruMaltChiYorkie.  All of these strongly influence the characters and events in his novels; however, his beautiful wife, Mitzi, is the true inspiration for the tender hearted but determined women in his stories.

He is the author of two previous novels, Hearts in the Storm and Dreams of the Sleepless.




Book Review and Giveaway Riversnow

Title: Riversnow
Author: Tess Thompson
Genre: Romantic Supsense
Rating: 5 stars
Purchase: Amazon
Review copy provided by Enchanted Book Promotions in exchange for an honest review.

Genevieve Banks is beautiful and successful – and one of Hollywood’s highest paid actresses.

While filming opposite Hollywood’s heartthrob Stefan Spencer in River Valley, Genevieve and Stefan form a deep friendship. He wants to take their relationship to the next level, but a violent incident from Genevieve’s past has made her feel intimacy is an impossibility.

When her closely guarded secret is revealed, Genevieve is forced into a decision: Stay silent and let others suffer or bravely confront her violent past and the man who hurt her.

In this fourth installment of the bestselling River Valley Series, author Tess Thompson explores themes of community, friendship and love.

Riversnow is a heartbreaking drama, with a lot of suspense thrown in. Genevieve Banks is one of Hollywood’s highest paid actresses. When filming opposite Stefan Spencer in River Valley, Genevieve and Stefan become fast friends, and they have a connection neither of them thought possible. Stefan wants to bring their relationship to the next level, but Genevieve’s past still troubles her, and she’s afraid to take that step. When her secrets are revealed, Genevieve has to make a heartbreaking choice: stay silent and let others suffer too, or confront the demons of her past.

The book is deep and powerful and painful, and a thousand emotions all rolled into one. Once I started reading, I couldn’t put this down. The emotions you feel as you’re reading, the emotions portrayed by the characters, it’s all very real, raw and powerful. The characters are so realistic you could imagine them walking right out of the pages and starting to chat with you. I loved tefan, and I absolutely adored Gennie, and was so proud of her and her strength and resilience.

This is the first book I’ve read in the River Valley series, but it won’t be my last. I plan to pick up another one soon, when I have some spare time (always scarce on spare time) and when I recover from all I felt while reading this book. If you’re not afraid to have your heartstrings tugged, and you enjoy romance books that don’t shy away from some very real hurt in the character’s past, I would recommend this book.

Book Review: Thin Air by Yotam Jacobson

Traumatized by war, Roi finds solace and a new world view on the Tibetan Plateau

Roi’s traumas as an IDF soldier send him to India to restore his soul. He finds spiritual solace in the Tibetan refugee community of Dharamsala. Tibetan Buddhism leads Roi to renounce militarism and embrace cosmic compassion. He even finds local love.

War again rears its ugly head in this riveting story

But war is never far away. Just when he’s tapped into a wellspring of Buddhist thought, the Tibetan underground recruits Roi. To his surprise – and contrary to his newly adopted pacifism – it advocates violent struggle against the Chinese occupation. A large arsenal is amassed, and Roi finds himself in a pivotal role. With his life in danger, will Roi forsake his new religious ways and return to a path of violence?

Life or death choices in exotic Tibet

This suspenseful novel sweeps across the Tibetan Plateau: its landscapes, beliefs, and history. It reveals the complex relationship between east and west and even a surprising solution to the China-Tibet crisis. Answers to Roi’s deepest questions must be found anew.

Roi is a former IDF soldier who heads to India in a quest to resort his soul, in Thin Air. He finds spiritual solace with the Buddhist monks, and finds himself in Tibetan Buddhism. He renounces militarism, the war itself, and instead embraces compassion for everyone, regardless of nationality or religion. But then Roi gets recruited by the Tibetan underground that advocates violent struggle against the Chinese occupation. Roi has to choose between the new religion he’s just embraced, and the path of violence he knows all too well.

Part of the book reads like a travelogue, in which Roi visits the Tibetan Plateau. The descriptions are amazing and help the reader picture exactly how everything looks. The character descriptions are a little hurried at the start, but as you get to know the characters they become much more than just descriptions – they become more realistic and start behaving in realistic ways, and you can predict what they will think or do about certain things. That said, the book is slightly predictable, as the characters didn’t really do a lot of things I didn’t expect them to do.

However, this was a great read, and one I devoured in a few days. The settings in particular were outstanding, and I loved getting to know the Tibetan culture.

I was trained from birth to be the best Agent possible. Growing up in a Military Training Academy for unwanted children has its perks. I might not have ever been to a dance but I am a sharp shooter, master at hand to hand combat and best hacker the Academy has ever seen. I trained my whole life to pass the final and become an Elite agent. The only problem? My entire life has been a lie. My father is a monster and I’ve been trained to kill monsters.

In Operation Child Soldier, Aria’s life can hardly be compared to an ordinary life. Rather than having a regular, ordinary childhood, she grew up in the Military Training Academy for unwanted children. She’s a sharp shooter, excellent at hand to hand combat, and an extraordinary hacking. She’s spent her whole life training to become an Elite agent, but there’s a problem… Her life is based on a lie, and the more she digs for the truth, the more earth-shattering secrets and lies she uncovers.

Aria’s feelings are raw and brutal, and connecting with her is easy. Her pain is real, her feelings are real. The author did a wonderful job crafting her personality and making her appear realistic. She has a strong personality, she’s intelligent and brave, and once she puts her mind to something, she doesn’t give up.

The writing is good too, and the pacing is very fast. The descriptions tend to be short and to the point, but that works well for a fast-paced book like this one. Parts of the story were heart-breaking, parts of it made me smile, but overall, it was an intriguing rollercoaster ride. Recommended to all fans of YA books.

Murder and a dangerous love affair across the Israel-Palestine divide

Israel Police investigator Dov Chizzik, a decorated war hero and ‘Super Cop’, is promoted to head TPI – Techno Pornography Investigations – fighting Internet porn. Caught in a honey trap set by the anonymous Porn King, his career and marriage are destroyed. Down and out, living in his car, Dov is offered a solo political investigation that will open unexpected doors and introduce him to a new and dangerous love affair.

A romantic thriller based on real events

Dov is offered a way back to the police if he lends his name to a false report about the deaths that took place during the October 2000. At the crime scene, he falls for Lana, a bright Palestinian student who faces the threat of honor-killing by her family because of their love affair. She has witnessed murders he is asked to cover-up. Will he risk his career for his truth?

The unknown truths about the place we think we know

From a small Palestinian village in the Galilee to the Criminal Court in The Hague, through a rape investigation at a university and another dark offer by the Justice Ministry, Blood On The Ground weaves political realities in the Middle East into a gripping drama that will grab you from the very first page.

Blood on the Ground focuses on the conflict between the Israel-Palestine divide, and the consequences this has for people living within or just outside of those borders. Dov Chizzik, a decorated war hero and police investigator, is promoted to head of the Techno Pornography Investigations, fighting internet porn. When he’s caught in a honey trap by the anonymous Porn King, he loses his career and marriage.

Now he’s living in his car, and redemption comes in the form of a solo political investigation that will offer him a new chance. He’s asked to cover up several murders, but at the crime scene meets and falls in love with Lana, a bright Palestinian student who falls in love with him too. However, if their affair is exposed, she faces the threat of an honor killing by her family.

Blood on the Ground was an amazing read. You have the murders Dov is trying to solve, but there’s also the geopolitical backdrop, the conflict between Israel and Palestinia, the culture clash between both, the dangerous love affair he has with Lana. I found the political struggles and cultural issues almost more interesting than the murders.

Fans of high-risk thrillers with intriguing protagonists will love this book.
