Blog Tour / Book Musings - Caught on Camera by Madelle Morgan


Caught on Camera
Madelle Morgan
(Hollywood in Muskoka, #1)
Publication date: September 9th 2016
Genres: Comedy, New Adult, Romance
To achieve her dream of working on Hollywood film sets, star struck chambermaid Rachel Lehmann needs $35,000 for film school tuition by the end of the summer. When she’s asked to fill in for a missing bridesmaid at a movie star’s wedding, it’s her big chance to take candid photos of celebrities and sell them to the entertainment media. Then groomsman Mickey McNichol, agent to the stars, sweeps her off her feet.
Mickey’s bitter experience is that everyone in show business fakes emotions. When he falls for the stand-in bridesmaid, he thinks he’s finally met a beautiful woman he can trust. But if Rachel betrays his friends’ privacy, Mickey will ensure she never works in Hollywood.



My Musings :

I received the ebook free of charge for an honest review.

I picked this book based on the blurb. The situation outlined intrigued me and I was sure it would be a good read. And I have to say the author didn't disappoint me. This is another new author to me so I didn't know what to expect but she went beyond my expectations.

The characters were refreshing and well developed. Rachel is a strong woman whom I liked a lot. At the beginning I had my doubt but as the story progressed I fell in like with her. As for Mickey, well, he was my favourite from the start. I just loved his character. At the end, both of them satisfied my heart!

The side characters add a lot to the main characters and the story. They add more life and they are also as developed as the protagonists. I loved reading about them. The story seemed to happen in a short time frame but it had lot of development during that time. It was full of drama, romance, humour, love and sadness. It catered to all sides of my heart and mind. It left me with a complete tale covering all the pertinent details.

This book also deals with themes like honesty in a relationship and how to overcome differences too. This in turn made the characters realistic to me. It was refreshing to read about the complications in a relationship and how honesty can make everything better at the end.

All in all, it was an entertaining read and this has made me want to read more of the author's works.

My rating : 5/5



Author Bio:
Madelle completed four novels before Ellora’s Cave Publishing Inc. contracted to publish her debut romantic suspense, Diamond Lust—republished as Diamond Hunter—and a sexy, short free read, The Next Big Thing, in 2010.
When Madelle realized her author voice is more suited to light, humorous contemporary romance, she went waaaay back to her teen years for the Hollywood in Muskoka series setting. Madelle, her sisters, and assorted pets enjoyed idyllic summers at a lake in the District of Muskoka, Ontario, Canada, named by National Geographic Traveler magazine as one of their top 20 Best of the World Must-see Places.
The Muskoka lakes’ forested shorelines are dotted with palatial properties owned by wealthy families and Hollywood celebrities. At sixteen, being neither rich nor famous, Madelle worked briefly as a chambermaid at the now-closed Delawana Inn, a local resort.
Madelle is retired from an engineering career in the federal public service and lives in Ottawa, Canada’s capital, with her husband. She tries to keep fit with cycling, Pilates, and yoga, and dreams of owning a waterfront cottage. Or at least a pool.
She tweets and posts on Facebook and Goodreads about Hollywood, filmmaking, Muskoka, and, of course, writing. She blogs the second Tuesday of the month at romancingthegenres.blogspot.com and occasionally on her own website.

Author: Denise Hunter
Read some reviews:

1. Kathy * Bookworm Nation
2. Carrie Turansky 
3. Becky Smith 

The Story:


Riley Callahan’s plans to reveal his secret feelings for his best friend are derailed when his life is drastically altered in Afghanistan.

Watching the love of his life fall for his brother was enough to send Riley straight to boot camp. But over a year later, he’s officially a marine, and Beau and Paige are no longer an item. When Riley’s tour in Afghanistan is up, he intends to confess his feelings to Paige and win his best friend’s heart once and for all.

But all that changes when an IED takes the life of a comrade and leaves Riley an amputee. Now he’s heading home, injured and troubled. His plans to win Paige are a distant dream. She deserves so much more than the man that’s left. All he can do now is put some healthy distance between them. But upon his return he discovers his family has arranged for him to stay with Paige.

Paige is a nurturer at heart and happy to take care of her best buddy. By all appearances Riley is adjusting miraculously well to his disability. But as the days pass, Paige begins to see that the smiles and laughter are just a mask for the pain he’s hiding. To make matters worse, her job is in serious jeopardy. The animal shelter that she’s poured her heart into has lost its funding, and she has three months to come up with the money needed to save it.

As the weeks wear on, Paige’s feelings for Riley begin to shift into uncharted territory. Why is she suddenly noticing his arm muscles and the way his lips curl at the corners? Will she be able to deny her feelings for another Callahan brother? And will Riley let his heart heal so he can let Paige in?

Blog Tour / Book Musings - Killer in the band by Lauren Carr



Blurb :

Summer of Love & Murder

Joshua’s eldest son, Joshua “J.J.” Thornton Jr., has graduated at the top of his class from law school and returns home to spend the summer studying for the bar exam. However, to Joshua’s and Cameron’s shock and dismay, J.J. moves into the main house at Russell Ridge Farm, the largest dairy farm in the Ohio Valley, to rekindle a romance with Suellen Russell, a onetime leader of a rock group who’s twice his age. Quickly, they learn that she has been keeping a deep dark secret.

The move brings long-buried tensions between the father and son to the surface. But when a brutal killer strikes, the Lovers in Crime must set all differences aside to solve the crime before J.J. ends up in the cross hairs of a murderer.

Praise for Lauren Carr’s Mysteries:

“Lauren Carr could give Agatha Christie a run for her money!”

​- Charlene Mabie-Gamble, Literary R&R

“As always, Lauren Carr brings an action-packed story that is almost impossible to put down. Her mystery plots have so many twists and turns that I didn’t know if I was coming or going. And the action just didn’t stop from the very beginning till the very end.” - Melina Mason, Melina’s Book Reviews

Buy the Book:

Amazon ~ Barnes & Noble

My Musings :

I received the ebook free of charge for honest review.

I have always liked the author's works. She writes a book which is well rounded in characters and themes and plot lines. This book is no different.

The book as usual has a host of characters to keep track of. This is a characteristic of Lauren Carr's books. Though it is a bit hard to keep the characters separate, it becomes easier as time passes. And all of them are unique and add their own flair to the story. It's fun meeting them and understanding each of them. Most of the characters are ones I have already read about from Joshua to Cameron to JJ. So it was easy to follow the story without much confusion.

The author covers a myriad of themes from younger man-older woman romance to family dynamics to mysteries. Actually this book has quite a few side plots with their own mysteries to deal with. At times, the pace of the book felt slow but the way the author kept exploring the maze of the tale, it kept me interested till the end.

It is rather a fast read inspite of the slower pace because of the author's writing style. The author does know how to keep a reader's attention without straying. It was the usual great read expected from the author and I was in no way disappointed.

My rating : 5/5


Author's Bio:


Lauren Carr is the international best-selling author of the Mac Faraday, Lovers in Crime, and Thorny Rose Mysteries—over twenty titles across three fast-paced mystery series filled with twists and turns!

A story set in the 90s of Bangalore about a bunch of boys growing up on the sport & religion called 'Cricket'. Karna’s love and passion for Divya is as much as for the game.
