Her Marine Next Door

My next door neighbor Parker Jax is not my type. He’s covered in tats, rides a motorcycle, and his parties keep me up all night. The fact he’s sexy as sin doesn’t change the fact we are oil and water.

I’m a quiet artist. He’s a rowdy marine. I’ve got a broken heart. I’m convinced he doesn’t have a heart at all.

Thankfully, my bad-boy neighbor is on leave from the Marines for only thirty days. But then the jerk has to go and show me that he has a soft side beneath all those hard muscles. He actually leaves his own party to help me, and he didn’t even have to.

Fantastic. Now I owe him.

I’m not worried, though. What are the chances he’ll need me to do anything before the month is up?

But when a woman shows up with a kid at her side, knocking on Parker’s door, it turns out those chances are pretty good…

Net Galley Book:

This was a sure pick to read after seeing the cover and reading the blurb. But Skylar and her Marine might be opposite but they are great together once they realize that. The perfect mix of quirky artist and bad boy to make this book a winner. Read and reviewed from Net Galley books.

Lisa Book Club

Thanks for joining my Tuesday Book Club at the Library. Today we have another holiday book and a chat wit a treat.

The Christmas Eve party at Buttercup Manor is tradition. Murder is not.

Be ready or be fudged. It’s the week of the annual Gingerbread Festival in the sweet southern town of Buttercup Ridge and Poppy has been hired to work at the famous Buttercup Manor, one of Georgia’s most charming mountain Inns. With a festive Main Street, holiday tunes floating through the breeze, and as many knitted gifts as a person could want, the run up to Christmas is proving to be a magical week.

Until a body wrapped in gold thread is found by the riverbank.

With the help of a local paramedic and a little terrier referred to as Yorkshire Pudding, Poppy pieces together the mystery surrounding this horrible holiday crime. But can she find the culprit before the oven timer beeps?

Book 6 in the Poppy Peters mystery series! A light-hearted cozy mystery featuring quirky small-town characters, southern charm, and recipes. This book does not contain cliffhangers, graphic violence, gore, or profanity.
