Death and Decluttering banner This is my stop during the blog tour for Death and Decluttering by Nancy McGovern. Death and Decluttering is the first book in the new cozy mystery series Sparks and Joy by author Nancy McGovern. This blog tour is organized by Lola’s Blog Tours. The blog tour runs from 4 till 24 January. See the tour schedule here. Death and DeclutteringDeath and Decluttering (Sparks and Joy #1) By Nancy McGovern Genre: Cozy Mystery Age category: Adult Release Date: 23 June, 2020
Blurb: Joy Russo loves chaos. From her life as a busy reporter to her brawling, coffee-obsessed Italian family, there’s nothing she loves more than her messy, little life. Then the weird, slightly out-of-this-world Aurora Sparks arrives, whose life seems to revolve around creating order out of chaos. The two of them have somehow ended up as roommates in the small Upstate New York town of Bent River, and the old adage that says “opposite attract” couldn’t be further from the truth! Sparks fly & tempers flare as each young lady tries to deal with the other’s eccentricities while not compromising their own values. Much easier said than done. But when a man is found dead and Joy’s father is the prime suspect, the two must put aside their differences if they want to help him. They soon find that Joy’s tough, no-nonsense demeanor and Aurora’s ordered, structured nature perfectly complement each other when it comes to ferreting out clues. And, thankfully so, as the danger threatens to escalate unless they can sort through the facts and solve this mystery in a hurry! Death & Decluttering is the first cozy mystery adventure in Nancy McGovern’s new series, “Sparks & Joy”!

free, or so he tells himself. And he’s pretty sure he can get away
with it, until a pretty but irritating, know-it-all wolf Shifter
crashes his party and his heart.
Lara Kraft is on a mission, one that doesn’t involve Isaac and his
never-ending efforts to push her buttons. Her research takes her into
the territory of a dangerous criminal game, and all her carefully
laid plans go awry. When Lara learns the truth about the gang’s
latest assignment, she’ll do anything to
stop
them. But good intentions have a way of
getting complicated, especially when Isaac is involved.

Fantasy Man by Jean-Michel Desire

 

Fantasy Man
by Jean-Michel Desire
Genre: Fantasy

The world nations are suddenly faced with terrorism in an unprecedented simultaneous attack worldwide. An urgent secret meeting is held with religious and political authorities of all nations to discuss the ensuing message from a ghostly character by the name of Fantasy Man, who not only claims full responsibility, but challenges all with a precise ultimatum. General Timothy Powell is assigned to the leadership of the taskforce with mission to find and stop Fantasy Man, but this assignment could not come at a worse time for the General who faces some very personal and delicate problems.

A British archeologist sets up an elaborate scheme to select a group of civilians to accompany him through a paranormal adventure never before attempted, an adventure that he has nicknamed ‘The war to end all wars’. Fascinated at the prospects of this paranormal adventure, the civilians will soon find themselves in a web of deceit while truly embarking in the unknown world of the supernatural. By the time the hidden agenda of the archeologist is understood, deepest and darkest secrets will have been revealed and only friendship and love will provide a slim chance for the civilians to come out alive. But who has deceived who?

A mastermind engineer disillusioned with the lethargy and inertia of the corporate world seizes an unexpected opportunity to start his own business, an entertainment outfit unlike any other. How could he possibly have known that he would become entangled with the taskforce against Fantasy Man?

Racing around the globe as well as around the clock to piece the challenging puzzle laid out by Fantasy Man will prove to be a quasi-impossible task for the authorities… until fate does what it does best, bringing together the most unlikely group of people to solve the riddle. But Fantasy Man had one last defiant act up his sleeve, another simultaneous worldwide show of force with a fatal outcome…

What would you do faced with the enormity of Fantasy Man’s challenge and a deadline to stop him?

If you were selected for the archeologist’s paranormal adventure, would you willingly take on the challenge of ‘war to end all wars’?

Would you give up your dream of a highly successful self-made career in the entertainment domain, to save the world, or simply to ease the burden of a troubled soul?

Fantasy Man will change your world forever, if you dare take his challenge…

Jean-Michel Désiré was born on the magnificent tropical island of Mauritius,
where he completed his primary and secondary studies in compulsory
bilingual French and English languages. An acute love of reading
combined with a great interest in art (drawing and painting) pushed
Jean-Michel from a young age to want to write his own comic books,
but a lack of opportunity blocked his efforts. It was this same lack
of opportunity of the time that triggered a need to perform further
studies. At age 22, Jean-Michel left Mauritius for North London,
England, where he completed a bachelor of Engineering in Electronics
followed by a Master of Philosophy in Microelectronics.
While concluding his Master’s degree, Jean-Michel met the lady who became
his wife a year later, year during which they also moved to Montreal
Canada where Jean-Michel had been offered an engineering position in
the Aerospace industry. Life had its own agenda, and within the first
eighteen months, their daughter was born in the middle of a snow
storm in Montreal. Six years later, their son came into the world and
the obvious demands of family life became the main priorities.
During the winter of 2008, Jean-Michel slipped on the ice during a storm and
fractured his ankle in multiple locations. Recovering at home after
surgery, Jean-Michel decided that the time had come to revive his
passion for writing. Within two years, his first book ‘The
Storyteller’s Nights’ was published. The positive feedback from
readers fueled Jean-Michel to exploit his bilingualism and he
translated the story into French, ‘Les Nuits du Conteur’ being
published in 2015. He then felt the wind in his sails and published
‘Fantasy Man’ in 2017, and recently, ‘Revanche (Revenge)’
(the follow-up to ‘Les Nuits du Conteur’) in 2019. ‘Fantasy
Man’ is presently nominated for an award, top ten finalist to be
announced on 22 August 2019. He has just completed the first draft to
his next English book, entitled ‘The Miracle Ladies’, which he
plans to send to the publisher within the next few months, after the
essential rounds of self-editing.
Engineer by day, writer by night, Jean-Michel plans to keep letting his
imagination go wild while capturing it all on paper. Surrounded by a
great family, he plans to write a whole lot more. When he is not
writing, he spends quality time with his family and travels yearly
back to Mauritius to visit his Mom and brothers.

Lifeliners by Stefan Vucak

Lifeliners
by Stefan Vucak
Genre: Science Fiction
When everybody is against them, it is tough being a lifeliner, as Nash
Bannon found out. Lifeliners are ordinary people…almost. They can
draw energy from another person; they live longer and are smarter.
Scientists claim that Western high-pressure living and growing
sterility in developed countries has triggered the rise of
lifeliners, and homo sapiens will replaced by homo renata within ten
generations. So, what’s not to like about lifeliners? Protest
marches by extremist groups, riots, attacks against lifeliners,
repressive laws enacted by governments everywhere, were portents of a
dark future. Young, successful, Nash Bannon did not like what was
going on, but he thought he had the world at his feet and life in
Australia was good, provided no one found out he was a lifeliner. A
chance encounter with Cariana during a lunchbreak develops into
something he considered important. The Australian government calls a
snap election, and Nash stands as a Senate candidate on the Lifeliner
Party ticket. Unless lifeliners rise up and fight for their rights,
they can expect sterilization, incarceration, and possible
extermination as democracies everywhere turn into autocracies. To
survive, the Lifeliner Party must employ the same dirty tricks the
government used against them, but they were not prepared for what
awaited them.
Stefan Vucak has written eight Shadow Gods Saga sci-fi novels and six
contemporary thrillers. He started writing science fiction while
still in college, but didn’t get published until 2001. His Cry of
Eagles won the coveted Readers’ Favorite silver medal award, and his
All the Evils was the prestigious Eric Hoffer contest finalist and
Readers’ Favorite silver medal winner. Strike for Honor won the gold
medal.
Stefan leveraged a successful career in the Information Technology industry,
which took him to the Middle East working on cellphone systems. He
applied his IT discipline to create realistic storylines for his
books. Writing has been a road of discovery, helping him broaden his
horizons. He also spends time as an editor and book reviewer. Stefan
lives in Melbourne, Australia.

Boundless * Jill Andersen Mysteries Prequel by J.D. Cunegan

Boundless
Jill Andersen Mysteries Prequel
by J.D. Cunegan
Genre: SciFi Superhero Mystery
A little more than two years before the events of Bounty, Jill Andersen
makes a life-altering decision. But this decision comes with
consequences she didn’t foresee, and her first night as the
vigilante Bounty winds up being something for which she was wholly
unprepared.
A crisis of faith eventually gives way to certainty: both in terms of
discovering who killed a young man named Johnny Ruiz and in terms of
coping with the latest change in her own life.
Along the way, Jill defies death and discovers just how deep the city’s
corruption runs. But will she survive the experience long enough to
decide if a life of vigilantism is for her?
**only 99 cents!!**
Bounty
Jill Andersen Mysteries Book 1
Jill Andersen is one of Baltimore’s best and brightest detectives, but she
harbors a dark secret — a secret that threatens to come out when the
body of Dr. Trent Roberts is pulled out of the Chesapeake Bay. Dr.
Roberts’ connection to Jill reveals a past that involves a tour in
Iraq, a secretive cybernetic experiment, and a conspiracy that
involves a native son.
Can Jill solve the case while still keeping her secret? Will her partners
at the Seventh Precinct find out what she’s so desperate to hide?
What was Dr. Roberts looking into that led to his murder? And perhaps
the biggest question of all…
Who is Bounty?
Blood Ties
Jill Andersen Mysteries Book 2
For as long as Jill Andersen could remember, her father was a hero.
But heroes don’t commit murder, do they? The state of Maryland said
Paul Andersen did just that, three times over, and was set to execute
him for it. But Jill and the rest of her colleagues at the Baltimore
Police Department come across the murder of a law student that leaves
her hopeful that she can clear her father’s name.
While Jill and her colleagues work against the clock to clear her father’s
name, new players emerge, hinting to a deeper, darker conspiracy than
what was previously known. An enigmatic faction known as The Order
reveals itself, and the mystery surrounding Paul’s alleged
duplicity leaves more questions than answers.
Along the way, Jill must not only face the possibility that her father was
not who she thought he was, but she must also face the prospect of
her secret being revealed. The stakes are higher than ever in Blood
Ties, the intense follow-up to J.D. Cunegan’s debut mystery Bounty.
Can Jill save her father before it’s too late? Will she even want to?
Behind the Badge
Jill Andersen Mysteries Book 3
For Jill Andersen, being part of the Baltimore Police Department has
always been both a tremendous honor and a serious responsibility. Her
father, before his fall from grace, had instilled in her a great
respect for police and the work they do day-to-day. But when a
teenage boy winds up dead on the outskirts of downtown Baltimore,
Jill finds herself once again faced with those who would abuse their
badges to fulfill personal agendas and uphold biases.
Jill still has a job to do, but she soon finds that not everyone is in her
corner. For the first time in almost four years working Homicide,
Jill finds herself at odds with people who claim to be on her side.
From other cops to suits downtown all the way to the Mayor’s
office, it becomes increasingly clear that Jill will need to rely on
more than just her badge if she’s to solve this case.
But even if she finds justice, what’s the price?
Behind the Badge, the gripping, hard-hitting third novel in the Jill
Andersen series (Bounty, Blood Ties), gives readers another taste of
author J.D. Cunegan’s comic book-inspired brand of fast-paced
prose, with chapters that fly by and plot twists that will leave
readers constantly guessing and waiting for more.
Behind the Mask
Jill Andersen Mysteries Book 4
It’s hard to be a hero when everyone’s out to get you.
Once upon a time, Jill Andersen considered herself a hero. Not just
because of the badge handed to her by the city of Baltimore and the
pledge she once made to protect and serve. Her secret life, as the
vigilante Bounty, had allowed Jill to protect her native Baltimore in
ways her day job never could.
But all that has gone to hell now. One case pushed Jill past her limits,
to the point where she made choices she can’t take back. As a
result, the entire city is on the lookout for her. Allies can no
longer be counted on. People who were once in her corner might very
well be trying to bring her down… to say nothing of those she has
crossed along the way.
But that is the least of Jill’s problems. A shadowy figure emerges
among the chaos, and his link to Jill’s past has the potential to
be her ultimate undoing. Jill thought every link to Project Fusion
has been settled once she solved Dr. Trent Roberts’ murder almost
one year ago, but if she’s not careful, her past might just kill her.
Behind the Mask, the gripping, hard-hitting fourth novel in the Jill
Andersen mystery series (Bounty, Blood Ties, Behind the Badge), gives
readers yet another taste of author J.D. Cunegan’s comic
book-inspired brand of fast-paced prose, with chapters that fly by
and plot twists that will leave readers guessing and waiting for more.
J.D. Cunegan is known for his unique writing style, a mixture of murder
mystery and superhero epic that introduces the reader to his comic
book-inspired storytelling and fast-paced prose. A 2006 graduate of
Old Dominion University, Cunegan has an extensive background in
journalism, a lengthy career in media relations, and a lifelong love
for writing. Cunegan lives in Hampton, Virginia, and next to books,
his big passion in life in auto racing. When not hunched in front of
a keyboard or with his nose stuck in a book, Cunegan can probably be
found at a race track or watching a race on TV.

Silevethiel * The Vaelinel Trilogy Book 1 by Andi O’Connor

Silevethiel
The Vaelinel Trilogy Book 1
by Andi O’Connor
Genre: Paranormal Fantasy
Following her father’s murder, Irewen is betrayed and left for dead in the
forests of Mistwood. Rescued by an elf, Irewen awakes an exile with
no home, no country, and no people. But as the horrific memories of
murder and betrayal return, she realizes the nightmare is only beginning.
The world of Vaelinel is failing–its fate bound to her in ways no one
fully understands. A mysterious elven prophecy may provide her with
some answers, but continuously hunted and fighting for her life,
Irewen quickly learns that unearthing the truth will be more
difficult than she ever imagined.
Can she accept the friendship of the Wood Elves, or will she stand alone
against the terrifying evil now threatening to destroy the entire world?
The Speaker
The Vaelinel Trilogy Book 2
The Vaelinel Trilogy continues with this absorbing sequel to Silevethiel!
Alone and hunted by the Drulaack, Irewen takes advantage of her only option
for survival. Pushing her concerns aside, she lets the dead keep her.
But her refuge doesn’t last long. Driven out of their hosts by Laegon, a
handful Drulaack have returned to the Spirit World. No longer having
the protection of the dead, Irewen is forced to return to Vaelinel.
Finally reunited with her companions, the burdens placed on them are taking
their toll. Thoughts of suicide and mistrust plague the company.
Slowly unravelling, they must conquer their personal battles before
standing against the evil threatening the land.
For the Corrupter thirsts for revenge. And he’ll stop at nothing to
satisfy his hunger.
A Prophecy Fulfilled
The Vaelinel Trilogy Book 3
Regrouping after their escape from the Light Elves, Irewen and her companions
fear the worst after black smoke plumes on the horizon. Allowing
compassion to rule over reason, they ignore Finnwyn’s warning and
return to Lilendvelle, hoping to help some of the survivors stranded
in the city’s wake. Instead, they run into a trap.
Completely surrounded by an endless army of Drulaack, they fight
for their lives, but their efforts aren’t enough. Irewen is captured and
dragged into the heart of the Corrupter’s lair.
Having his prize, the others in the company are granted their freedom, but
at a great cost: the one named in the prophecy who is meant to unite
the elf forces and stand against the Corrupter is lost to the world –
trapped beneath the Corrupter’s talons.
With the aid of his mother’s spirit, Brendell must now find a way to
gather an alliance strong enough to march against the Corrupter and
his army, but his time is running out. Each day that passes brings
Irewen closer to death.
And the world closer to destruction.
Andi O’Connor is a multi-award winning author of epic fantasy novels and
short stories with a healthy dose of paranormal mixed in. She sits in
front of her typewriter (yes, typewriter!) every day and loses
herself in her worlds and characters in hopes that her readers will
fall in love with them as well. When she’s not clacking away, you can
find Andi dancing her butt off in the ballet studio. Rest assured,
she’s not the next Natalia Osipova, but she has a mean collection of
leotards and always finds an excuse to buy more.
She loves bats and dreams of turning her yard into a certified bat
habitat. She has three dogs who constantly work hard to drive her
insane, but their fluffy cuteness outweighs any insanity they can
bring. Her husband ‘Honeybee’ is wonderfully supportive of her author
life, and her son ‘P’ may or may not have claimed her typewriter as
his own on several occasions. Deadpool is her spirit animal, and her
motto is Embrace Your Crazy. We’re all unique and crazy in our own
ways, and Andi hopes others will join her by being proud of their
quirks and embracing their crazy!

Legend Undone by Angie Day

Legend Undone
by Angie Day
Genre: New Adult Urban Fantasy
Readers are calling it “creative” and “engaging!”
Mara wasn’t just a Legend who survived on human energy, she used to be a
dangerous Shadow who wielded more power than she wanted. When she
discovered that Alec, the leader of the Shadows and her childhood
love, held a dark secret about her past to keep her prisoner until he
could use her against the humans, she ran.
As the first Legend to escape the Shadows alive, Mara must keep moving,
hiding among the humans that every Legend learned to hate, while she
searches to understand her past. Under the alias Kate, she meets
Kylan and his way of life challenges everything she used to know. As
she falls for Kylan, she finds clues about what happened before she
became a Shadow.
But the closer she gets to an answer, the faster Alec can destroy
everything she has grown to love.
Angie Day found her love of writing while in college where she studied
psychology and eventually went on to a master’s degree. She noticed
the need for romantic and fantastic adult stories that were still
wholesome and clean. So, she took matters into her own hands. LEGEND
UNDONE is her debut novel. When she’s not devouring the next book,
she is spending time outdoors with her husband.
