REVIEW:
A quick read!
And a fun whodunit!
Amelia always gets the most interesting cases, that take her all over the world. I was actually surprised that her and Rick didn't go to Germany in this book, but still, they traveled. I liked that the good guys were also bad guys in this one too. Most clean reads don't go there, so I was pleasantly surprised.
I was trying to guess who stole the doll and why, and turned out wrong. I like that though, I didn't see it coming, or rather, get the notion, while reading. I did feel the end a little rushed through. Almost like the resolution came from nowhere and was wrapped up just as fast. Still, there was enough mystery and intrigue that I really enjoyed this story. At least as much as the others in this series.
What a fun series this is. I like watching Amelia and Rick figure out cases while figuring out each other. Makes for great reading. I look forward to reading, Her Lost Love.

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?

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…
