Katie Greene's worst nightmare comes true when her mother dies, and she's devastated to learn that she will have to leave the only home she's ever known. Desperate to find where she belongs, she must decide if she has what it takes to start a new life across the ocean. For Yuu Tomohiro, every day is a nightmare. He struggles to control his strange ability, and keeps everyone at a distance so they won't get hurt—even his girlfriend, Myu. At night, a shadow haunts his dreams, and a mysterious woman torments him with omens of death and destruction. But these haunting premonitions are only the beginning…

B Is For Best Friend Bella

Lions, tigers and bears, oh my!
I couldn't resist, sorry.
Meet my bestest friend, but shhhhhh... don't tell my bestie Wendy.
Bella.
She's so swella.
But she smells like mortadella.
Just kidding. I love my Bella. She is my shadow really.
She even sits in the chair beside me as I type this out. Never leaves my side, 'cause when I do, she cries.... oh how she cries. The hubster says she pines for me.
I only left for 5 minutes to get coffee.
But every time I walk in the door and she is at the stairs to greet me, I feel like the most important person on earth. And I am, after all, who else will give her all the treats and toys?!
So here's my ode to Bella. My companion to the end!

#Giveaway: Sweet Nothings - Janis Thomas

Life's sweetest moments happen when you least expect them . . .
When Ruby McMillan's husband announces one morning that he's dumping her for another woman, she's unable to decide which indignity stings the most: the dissolution of their eighteen-year marriage or the deflation of her white-chocolate soufflé with raspberry Grand Marnier sauce. Without a good-bye to their two teenaged children, Walter leaves Ruby to cope with her ruined dessert, an unpaid mortgage, and her failing bakery.
With only royal icing holding her together, Ruby still manages to pick herself up and move on, subsidizing her income with an extra job as a baking instructor, getting a "my-husband's-gone" makeover, and even flirting with her gorgeous mortgage broker, Jacob Salt. For as long as she can remember, Ruby has done what's practical, eschewing far-fetched dreams and true love in favor of stability. But suddenly single again at the age of forty-four, she's beginning to disco…
