Book Review - 101+ Secrets from Nutrition School that you need to know by Lynne Dorner

Book Review
101+ Secrets from Nutrition School that you need to know 
by Lynne Dorner

Book Description
101+ Secrets from Nutrition School is an enlightening experience in which the author and health coach Lynne Dorner shares the most essential lessons she learned along her educational journey at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Struck by the fact that only about one-fifth of medical schools teach nutrition or lifestyle changes as a way to prevent or cure disease, Lynne became inspired to share her secrets with others looking to make positive life changes. The lessons, which are accompanied by beautiful illustrations, pop off the page and are full of significant and life-changing calls to action. The book is inspirational from the start, and Lynne's knowledge and passion for the subject matter compels the reader to incorporate her secrets into their own life.

Available to buy from...

Our Book Review
This book pleasantly surprised me, it was not all food related as I had expected it to be, although it does include lots of great valuable food and body information, it is also a focus on bringing a balance to all parts of your life so you feel 'whole' again and are achieving what you really want.  I believe that things happen for a reason, fate, which is why the chance of reading this now happened when I totally needed it.  If your looking for wellbeing and balance to your life in general, this is a great place to start. 

The author prompts you to ask What one thing I can do for my health today?  Through her own journey and experiences she shares a vast amount of important facts, sometimes eye openers, industry secrets, other principles and beliefs and things you had not even thought about.  Explaining that we can achieve much more in the long run by doing change in small easy steps so we keep the motivation that we had in the beginning.

This was a very easy book to follow and understand, there was a nice tone with some humor to the writing with fun pictures throughout to extenuate the facts.  I made notes of the facts I really wanted to focus on and I will definitely be reading and re-reading this over and over again as I continue to improve my own 'wellbeing'.

On the first food shopping trip with my husband while reading the book I was actively looking for more natural local grown food, comparing the number of ingredients in products (was there more than 5!!), pointing out all these to the husband and I found myself holding back from some of the items I would normally buy.  I remember thinking as I was walking around the store to myself  'The author would be proud."

As the author says, "Put your heart into it and enjoy the ride!"

Book Review - 1066 What Fates Impose by GK Holloway

Book Review
1066 What Fates Impose
by GK Holloway

Book Description
England is in crisis. King Edward has no heir and promises never to produce one. There are no obvious successors available to replace him, but quite a few claimants are eager to take the crown. While power struggles break out between the various factions at court, enemies abroad plot to make England their own. There are raids across the borders with Wales and Scotland. 

Harold Godwinson, Earl of Wessex, is seen by many as the one man who can bring stability to the kingdom. He has powerful friends and two women who love him, but he has enemies will stop at nothing to gain power. As 1066 begins, England heads for an uncertain future. It seems even the heavens are against Harold. 

Intelligent and courageous, can Harold forge his own destiny – or does he have to bow to what fates impose?
Available to buy from...

Our Book Review
The novel tells of the build up to the battle of Hastings and the rise of Harold to the English throne. A very well written novel based around historic facts and shows the writers imagination to bring the characters to life as well as adding spice and danger to the story . 

As the King of England is on his death bed and no apparent heir this opens a challenge from the feudal lords of the land and the relatives overseas. The amount of research the author has done into the past creates a truly believable account of the power struggle for the throne.  It draws the reader into a time of turmoil and where loyalty is bought by the biggest bidder. 

An historic novel full of battles , treachery and treaties that have to be made in order to survive.  An in-depth story of possibly one of Britains must unstable periods of English history. 

The authors writing and really good explanations of what was going on throughout England and the concessions that were made to maintain the status quo is first rate.  A must read for anyone who loves their historic novels.

Book Review - After the Evil: A Jake Roberts Novel by Cary Allen Stone

Book Review
After the Evil: A Jake Roberts Novel
by Cary Allen Stone

Book Description
Detective Jake Roberts and FBI profiler Mika Scott are in hot pursuit of the “Who’s Your Daddy” serial killer that preys on dominating and controlling men. During the investigation, Jake falls in love with flight attendant Lori Powers. Lori can’t silence the voices and her daughter Emily cries out from the grave. Pandemonium breaks out when Jake realizes Lori is the killer.

Available to buy from...

Our Book Review
What a novel , a hard hitting story which touches on the dark side of everyone from the serial killer to the police who are investigating the crimes. Although you know who the killer is from the outset, the real gripping thing is the reason why and as these reasons are revealed it draws the reader in. 

On the other side we have the police detective who is fighting his demons and will stop at nothing to find the killer and as their paths cross fireworks explode. 

The exceptionally thing about this novel is the emotive and human touch that is given to the main characters. If you like hard hitting gritty novels that portray the true side of investigations with no hold bars this is the writer for you.  

A real page turner with a very good psychology edge to it. This book kept me enrapt from page one to the end and the only disappointing factor was that it was over too quickly. The first of 3 novels featuring the same detective and on the basis of this one the author has created a detective to rival Morse, Rebus and Frost.

About the Author
Cary Allen StoneCary Allen Stone is a brilliant writer of psychological thrillers and murder mysteries. He writes with a keen eye for detail-the graphic violence is chillingly realistic. He delivers a taut, darkly introspective, cunning and well-executed plot by leaning towards the fallible side of his characters. He understands the criminal mind avoiding the stereotypes that dominate crime thrillers. There is a good balance of chemistry and conflict, good and evil that fans will find enthralling. His characters become embedded in our psyches and the pace of his unraveling of his thriller is a ride not easily forgotten. Cary Allen Stone is an important name to watch. This is one superb crime writer!--Grady Harp Top 100 ReviewerVine Voice 2014

In addition, he had a non-speaking character role in an AAA Club advertisement and has done voice-over radio commercials. He is currently working on his next Jake Roberts novel.

"Well written, a wide-range of unforgettable characters, heat and sex, then add a slice of humor that makes the romp an even cheekier ride." 

"If you're lying by a pool somewhere in the Florida Keys...you'll want this book to take your mind off the mosquitoes." 

About the Author
I've been writing, in one way or another for as long as I can remember; writing poetry, short stories, a romance novel secretly stashed under the bed and sappy love letters. Fiction should be fun. I wanted to create the perfect beach book, to make the reader laugh, cry and cheer... and then run out and tell their friends about it.

My love of reading began when I was seven, the day I opened the cover of my first Mrs. Piggle Wiggle book. Mrs. P gave lessons to other children in how to behave and to me I learned to love the written word. I live with my family and demon children aka rescue cats in South Florida.

You can still treat yourself to new release Dreaming of Love from here...

Emily Braden is a leader in architectural preservation, a pillar in her small hometown, and successful in everything she does—with the exception of finding true love. She’s watched several of her brothers fall in love, and she needs this trip to Tuscany to get away from it all and to stop focusing on what she doesn’t have.

Dae Bray doesn’t do flings, and he never stays in one place for very long. As a demolitionist, he goes where jobs take him, and the more often he travels, the better. His trip to Tuscany is all work—until he meets smart and sexy Emily, who makes him reconsider his fear of settling down, his no-fling rule—and just about everything else he’s ever believed about himself.

Passion sizzles as Dae and Emily explore the history and beauty of Tuscany. Their romance moves beyond tourist attractions to the bedroom, blossoming into a deep connection neither can deny. But their worlds collide when Emily wants to preserve the property that Dae is there to demolish. Can a woman who sees the beauty in preservation and a man whose life is spent tearing things down find a solid foundation for their love? 

THE BRADEN COUSINS are one of the newest additions to the LOVE IN BLOOM series.
**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**
