Believing In Bigfoot by JC Miller

bigfoot button

Believing In Bigfoot by JC Miller was a great book.  This is the second book I have read by JC Miller and it as another great book.  JC Miller does an amazing job of writing and making you feel as though you are there with the characters.  When this book started I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this book but after the first few chapters I did really get into the book and fell in love with the characters.  This was such a fun sweet book that I would recommend to everyone.

About The Book

Reeling from his failed comeback and ruined marriage, washed-out actor Ian James (née Isaac Janowitz) flees Los Angeles for a two-week respite in Northern California’s remote Marble Mountains—Bigfoot country. His time alone in the wilderness begins to peel away the layers of his Hollywood persona. After a fateful meeting with a beguiling woman, Ian begins to question his heart. In a moment of clarity, Isaac ditches his publicist and finds himself in Redding, living with invisibility at the Vagabond Motel.

Professor Ruth Hill is burnt out teaching photography at Redding’s Shasta College, eager for her upcoming retirement. But for unexplained reasons, despite weekly therapy sessions, her panic attacks have escalated. Her artistic slump persists. Looking back, she regrets a life without risk; looking forward, she dreads a meaningless future. Going over her proof sheets one morning, she stumbles upon a series of striking thumbnails, reigniting her passion and creativity.

Readers will root for Isaac and Ruth as they grapple with their chance encounter on the mountain and search for meaning in their repellent, yet intense attraction. Their paths do cross again, but when confronted with the possibility of enduring love, Ruth’s cynicism creeps in; Isaac’s self-defeating beliefs take hold. For these two damaged souls, it just may be too late.

Swept Away by Laura V Hilton and Cindy Loven

Book Review

Swept Away by Laura V Hilton and Cindy Loven was another great book in the series.  When I first started this book I didn’t like any of the characters but Sara Jane’s Grandma.  After a few chapters in I really did love the characters.  I think after a few chapters you got to see more of the characters and you get to know more about who they are so that helped.  I didn’t like how Sara Jane in the beginning of the book acted like a stuck up brat but after a few chapters you get to see more of who she is.  I have loved all the books in this series but one so I am so glad that this one ended up being another one that I love.  If you love romance books written by Christian authors than I would recommend this one to you.  I also would recommend any book in the Quilts Of Love series because they are all so amazing.

Swept Away

About The Book

The Brothers’ Keeper by NLB Horton

Book ReviewThe Brothers’ Keeper by NLB Horton was a good book it just wasn’t the right fit for me.  This is the second book in the series and  I have to say that I would recommend reading the first one before this.  Because I haven’t read the first book I found that I was super confused and kept getting lost as to what was going on in the book.  I am going to read the first book and then re-read this book and see how I feel about it after I know more of the back story.

Destiny Defied by J.A. Mark

Book ReviewDestiny Defied by J.A. Mark was an okay book to read.  I had high hopes for this book because from reading the back of the book it sounded like something that was right up my alley.  I did enjoy the characters and the setting of the book but that is about all I liked about this book.  I found that I got lost and confused trying to keep up with who was speaking.  Parts of the book also didn’t flow as well as others.  Like I said I usually love these types of books but that just wasn’t the book for me.  I would still recommend it because I know others will love this book it just wasn’t right for me.

Destiny DefiedAbout The Book

Lord Vétis, high priest of a cultic underground, will stop at nothing to reclaim their chosen one. Using black magic, he manipulates Riki and her four self-assigned bodyguards, triggering a battle that consumes the entire island. The underground will never allow Riki to live out her dreams of a normal life . . . something she has never known.

Our Little Secrets by Merry Farmer

Book ReviewOur Little Secrets by Merry Farmer was a fun book to read.  If you have been here for awhile you know that I have done tons of reviews for historical fiction lately and I have to say that this one stood out from the crowd for me.  Books can tend to blend together when you read as many as I do so to find one book that stands out from the coward it a good thing for me.  To be honest I am not sure what it is about this book that I loved so much but I can’t find any one thing that I loved more than the rest.  From the first chapter right on through the end I had to keep reading because I had to know what happens with the characters.  If you love historical fiction than I would for sure check this one out because I think this is one that shouldn’t be missed.

The Promise by Beth Wiseman

Book ReviewThe Promise by Beth Wiseman was a good book but there were things I didn’t like and I will get into those at the end of this review.  I love this authors writing and how she makes me understand why they make the choices that they do.  That being said the only reason I had a problem with this book is because I thought Mallory was a total idiot.  I liked this book but I found myself getting pissed at her because of some of her choices.  If you can look past her choices than I know you will love this  book.  I did enjoy it I just didn’t enjoy her character and her actions is all.

The PromiseAbout The Book

Mallory’s search for happiness leads her to a faraway place. There she finds heartache, betrayal—and danger.

Mallory Hammond is determined that no one will stand in the way of her goal—to save a life. She had that chance years ago, and she failed to take it, leaving her adrift and in search of the real meaning of her life. Finally, she meets a man online from a volatile corner of the world who offers her the chance to find that purpose. But she will have to leave everyone she loves behind in order to take it.

Tate Webber has loved Mallory for many years. He understands that Mallory will never be happy with him until her deepest heart’s desire is satisfied. When Mallory decides to travel across the world to fulfill her dreams, Tate begs her not to go but tries to give her the space she needs. Mallory embarks on her dangerous journey only to discover how swiftly and easily promises can be broken. And Mallory can only pray that she will make it out alive.

Inspired by actual events, The Promise is a riveting love story that asks the question: how far will we go for love?

Vacation by JC Miller

vacation buttonVacation by JC Miller was a fun book to read.  I wasn’t sure when I was reading this  book if I was going to enjoy it but I am glad that I stuck with it because I really did enjoy this book and I am glad I was able to review it.  The one thing about this book that I really loved was being able to feel like I was traveling with the characters and seeing places I may never go in my lifetime.    I love when the way the author writes makes you feel as if you are right there with the characters and this author does a great job of that.

VacationCoverAbout The Book

Dr. William Koval, a pragmatist with little faith in humanity, prefers to dwell in the eerily comforting microscopic realm, where he is master of his domain. But his worldview is upended when he decides to go on the English walking tour his wife had been planning before her murder three years earlier. Only when William confronts his past, including his troubled marriage, will he find a way to rejoin the living, to move forward, and perhaps love again. The real journey, he discovers, lies within.

Quilted by Christmas by Jodie Bailey

Book ReviewQuilted by Christmas by Jodie Bailey was such a sweet story.  I really enjoyed this story just like I have with others in this series.  I did find parts of this book predictable but I think that just comes from reading so many books that it is hard to shock me.  Even with that being said I really did enjoy this book.  I loved the characters and the authors style of writing.  I can’t wait to check out more books by this author because she writes amazingly.

Quilted by ChristmasAbout The Book

A grandmother’s last wish is to communicate God’s love through an Irish chain quilt.

Taryn McKenna believes she’s easy to forget. Abandoned by her parents and left behind when her high school sweetheart joined the army, she vows to never love again and throws herself into her love for the outdoors and the pursuit of a college degree—something no one else in her family has ever accomplished. Her goal, as a young teacher in the hills of North Carolina, is to leave a legacy in the lives of the middle-schoolers she teaches.

When Taryn’s grandmother Jemma, the only other person who ever held her close, has a heart attack that reveals a fatal medical condition, Taryn is corralled into helping Grandma work on a final project—an Irish chain quilt that tells the story of her history and the love Jemma knows is out there for Taryn. As the pieces of the quilt come together, Taryn begins to see her value. Can she learn to believe that God will never leave her behind even though others have?

Jodie BaileyAbout The Author

ReliefMD by Trusted Health Products

Trusted Health Products Logo

I was contact by Trusted Health Products about reviewing one of their products all ReliefMD.  As most of you know I have a bad back from working in a nursing home so I was interested to see if this one would work for my back pain.

reliefmd-bottle

I didn’t notice anything really different from this one than other products in regard to pain.  After I received it and read the paper that came with it I saw one of things it could help with was sleep so I figured why the heck not and I left some out one night and did seem to help me fall asleep.  I am going to keep trying having it rub on my back because it didn’t hurt and I enjoy the smell of it.  Here are a few of the things they say you can use it for as well:

ReliefMD uses a revolutionary new approach to extract living nutrients from plants and nuts in order to deliver a 100% pure formula of botanical oils (from nature herself) to feed our body the nutrients it wants. ReliefMD is a massage in a bottle.

For the Discomfort of:

  • Sore Back / Neck
  • Swollen Joints
  • Sore Muscles
  • Muscle Strains
  • Sprains
  • Contusions
  • Bruises
  • Headache
  • Insomnia (also put 5 drops in a saucer beside your bed for aromatic benefits)
  • Sport Workouts (use before and after)
  • Mosquito Bites / Insect Bites / Stings (apply every few minutes for an hour)
  • Itching (apply as needed)
  • Cold Sores (apply every few minutes for an hour)
  • Burns, including sunburns (apply every few minutes for an hour)

I also think I want to try it for bug bites if and when I get any of those next summer.   If you love all natural products than I would for sure check these guys out because I haven’t been sent a product that didn’t work.  Also here are the ingredients in case you are wondering what is in it and what they do:

  • Almond – is used in skin care because it acts as an emollient (softening and soothing the skin), as a remedy for dry skin conditions, and as a relief for irritation, inflammation, and itching. These excellent emollient properties help the skin to balance its loss and absorption of moisture. Almond oil is also used in the medical field to help treat various forms of dermatitis.
  • Eucalyptus – is a powerful antiseptic, helps with nausea, suppresses coughs, and has strong germicidal and disinfectant properties. It stimulates the blood flow which directs more healthy oxygen to the brain and to the point of application.
  • Peppermint – has anti-microbial, fungicidal, and bactericidal actions. For medicinal uses, studies have shown peppermint oil to be effective as an analgesic, a tonic, an antispasmodic, and for daytime sleepiness. When combined with eucalyptus oil, the two are well-known for their positive efficacy to treat headaches and relieve pain.
  • Wintergreen (Methyl Salicylate) – is accepted by the U.S Food and Drug Administration as an over-the-counter external analgesic, primarily intended to relieve mild muscle and joint pain. Has anti-inflammatory properties and is used in topical pain relievers and products that produce a feeling of warmth.
  • Camphor – is antiseptic, analgesic and antispasmodic. Germany has approved Camphor for the treatment of rheumatism (externally). Camphor oil is applied to the skin to promote circulation and to relieve itching.
  • Spearmint – is generally used for its anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic properties, and in skin care, it is used as an anti-bacterial and anti-fungal.
  • Olive – Olive oil has been used to nourish and moisturize skin.
