Summer In Bliss by Freda Ann



Freda was born in southern New Jersey but grew up in Florida. She has loved writing her entire life. After retiring from a career in law enforcement, she knew it was time to fulfill her lifelong dream of being a published author.
She's the author of The Hawaii Series, proudly named from her love of the beautiful Hawaiian Islands. It's a three-book series with all of them written as standalone books.
Freda loves her large family, horses, dogs, cat, and close friends. She hosts monthly family dinners at her home in the country, which she shares with her husband.
She loves baking (she owned and operated a cupcake business for years), cooking, yoga, crocheting, nature and traveling with the love of her life.
What helps her write? Music makes her happy! If music doesn't give her the right motivation, she puts on a romantic movie, usually from the Hallmark Channel, which she can't get enough of!
Freda speaks her mind and pushes perfection to its limit. She strives to be her best, most positive self she can be in life. With time, determination, and practice, she believes anything is possible.

Excerpt

“Aaaah!” Hack, hack. The pain was more than anyone should have to endure but she couldn’t move away. Held firmly against the sofa cushions, her life flashed before her eyes.
She would never see them again. Her mom, dad, step-dad and brother. Not her grandparents, aunts, uncles or close friends either.
No! I can’t die like this. After six long, tough years in the military where they pushed her to fight harder than she ever thought was possible—her life couldn’t end this way.
“Aaaah! Help me!” Hack, hack. “Help, somebody! Aaaah!” Her throat was raw from the thick black smoke threatening every breath she took.
Gasping for her next breath, the fiery pain chomping at Mia’s leg won the battle, consuming her as the room grew dark.
Groaning from the pain waking her, she felt wet sandpaper raking over her face, again and again.
When her eyes fluttered open, her senses returned and she felt a weight holding her against the bed. A twinge of pain crawled over her right thigh and using all of her strength, Mia pushed herself up and off the bed.
Unable to breathe, she bolted through the house until she found a door taking her outside into the fresh air.
She jumped from the porch landing onto the soft sand on all fours, gasping for air. Her head throbbed from her heart beating so loud.
“Arf! Arf! Arf!”
Trying to clear her lungs of the smoke, she breathed deeply and forced it out with an exhale. Breathe in, breathe out, she continued the pace while the pounding slowed.
As something grabbed her, she flinched. Standing unsteadily, she twisted from its grip, her arm flying through the air but was stopped by a large, firm hand.
“Mia, what happened? Did someone hurt you?” She stared up at the familiar hazel-blue eyes.
“Where are they? How many are there?” He gripped her biceps as anger filled his eyes.
“Bedroom…f—fire.” She forced the words out.

REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
