"So what now, Ana?" José shouts at me over the noise.
"Kate and I are moving to Seattle. Kate's parents have bought a condo there for her."
"Dios mio, how the other half live. But you'll be back for my show?"
"Of course, José, I wouldn't miss it for the world." I smile, and he puts his arm around my waist and pulls me close.

  1. I haven't decided whether or not I want to read FIFTY SHADES OF GRAY. Reviews seem to be mixed. But I did enjoy your excerpt.

  2. Fifty Shades of Grey is one I have not read - I have deliberately avoided it but I don't really know why. No doubt curiosity will get the better of me and I will read it because EVERYONE else I know has! lol :)

  6. Popular title, and similar lyrics by Billy Joel and the Monkees as well. I've always liked the expression, shades of gray. I'm glad Ana isn't going to miss his show! lol

  9. Interesting enough snippet, but I'll probably not be reading these books. I don't think I'd enjoy them that much really. Hope you enjoy them, though.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
