Lemon Curd by Homa Pourasgari
ending on 6th May at 11.59pm est

Lemon Curd is a love story between the righteous and opinionated Anna Lisa Gibson and her arrogant British officemate, Neil Scott Whittaker. He can have any woman he desires but Anna Lisa's honesty and down to earth personality makes him fall in love with her. Except that he doesn't want to give up his fiancée and she doesn't want to have an affair with a soon to be married man. Yet romance is only part of this story. From the streets of Los Angeles to the streets of London, Lemon Curd depicts the millennium lifestyle - Women's position in the business world, the workaholic and multitasking attitude of our society and the difficulty of balancing family and work life while trying to make a difference in the lives of the people around us.

Book Review - Secret the Power by Rhonda Byrne

Book Review
The Power Book
Secret The Power
by Rhonda Byrne

About the Author
Rhonda was born in Australia and began her career as a radio producer before moving into television production. Many of her shows won industry awards and were screened in major countries outside Australia. Rhonda’s experience, background, and skill in film and television production were instrumental in the creation of The Secret film, viewed by millions across the planet.

She followed with The Secret book, a worldwide best seller available in 46 languages with over 20 million copies in print and has remained on the New York Times bestseller list for 190 weeks and was recently named by USA Today as one of the top 20-bestselling books of the past 15 years.

In 2010, Rhonda continued her groundbreaking work with the book The Power, which immediately became another New York Times bestseller. The Power is now available in 43 languages.   In her latest book, The Magic, Rhonda discloses knowledge hidden within a two thousand year old sacred text. On an incredible, 28-day journey, she then teaches the reader how to apply this life-changing knowledge in their everyday life, completely transforming every part of their life into joy.

Book Description
This is the handbook to the greatest power in the universe - The Power to have everything you want.

Without The Power you would not have been born. Without The Power, there wouldn't be a single human being on the planet. Every discovery, invention, and human creation comes from The Power. Perfect health, incredible relationships, a career you love, a life filled with happiness, and the money you need to be, do, and have everything you want, all come from The Power.

The life of your dreams has always been closer to you than you realized, because The Power - to have everything good in life - is inside you.  To create anything, to change anything, all it takes is just one thing... THE POWER.

Book Review
I recently received a copy of the book, Secret the POWER by Rhonda Byrne's for review. Rhonda Byrne’s intention is to empower every one to live a life of joy and prosperity.

The basic point of this book, is that anything entering your life, (positive or negative), was attracted you!  Every thought that we have is a force, or energy, and the Law of Attraction is the most powerful law in the Universe!

Once known only by an elite who were unwilling to share their knowledge of the power, ‘The Secret’ of obtaining anything you desire is now revealed by prominent physicists, authors and philosophers. The good news is that anyone can access its power to bring themselves health, wealth and happiness. Now ‘The Secret’ is being shared with the world.

Beautiful in its simplicity, and mind-dazzling in its ability to really work, The Secret reveals the mystery of the hidden potential within us all. By unifying leading-edge scientific thought with ancient wisdom and spirituality, the riveting, practical knowledge will lead you to a greater understanding of how you can be the master of your own life.

People who have drawn wealth into their lives used The Secret whether consciously or unconsciously. Their predominant thoughts are of wealth. In essence it is easy!

This book has opened my eyes. I had experienced the Law of Attraction numerous times even not knowing about its existence. It is a powerful concept. Now I am aware of it, I use it consciously in every part of my life. I visualized about my relationship, my business and it worked over and over again. It is good to realize how effective and powerful your own thoughts can be, in good ways and bad.

Friendship Friday - What would you wish for ? / Feature & Follow Friday

Friendship Friday

Welcome to Friendship Friday hosted by Create with Joy – a week-long opportunity to:
  • Foster friendships with other bloggers!
  • Share what’s unique about yourself and your blog!
  • Grow your blog and social media networks!
Question Of The Week

Imagine that you were given the power to make one wish.

You could wish for anything (except more wishes!)

What would it be?

My wish would be that money didn't exist.  Everybody would be equal  and just got on with the day to day living.  Concentrating on what matters in their lives, their families, food on the table, health.  There would be no more time for greed and power or waste for that fact.

That would be my wish x

Happy Earth Day!

Hosted by Parajunkee & Alison Can Read

This weeks question

Q: Have you had a character that disappointed you? One that you fell in love with and then "broke up" with later on in either the series or a stand-alone book? Tell us about him or her.

At the moment, I haven't got an answer for this one.  I know my husband would say the tv series of  his crime and thriller detective books is nothing at all like the book reads which he did get a little upset over.

Nature's Sleep Memory Foam Slippers Review and Giveaway

Review written by Bargain Hound:

I have had the opportunity to review a pair of memory foam slippers from Nature's Sleep! I chose the color pink in the closed-toe style slipper. As soon as I tried them on I fell in love with them. They were SO comfy!

I live in NY and the winters here are VERY cold. Not to mention that winters seem to last for 10 months out of the year here! Ok, a slight exaggeration. But I wear slippers almost all year round. I have owned many, many pairs of slippers in the last few years alone. We have 3 dogs, and our min-pin loves to sleep with her head in them, and our chihuahua loves to drag them around. So I'm always finding only one slipper at a time. But these slippers will not have that problem, because they will be treasured! As soon as I slipped into these, I could tell these were not my Walmart slippers. These were quality. They were so soft and had so much cushion, it was like I was walking on pillows. They not only feel incredibly soft, but they also keep my feet very warm! I'm one who is always cold, so having warm slippers is a must for me. I hate it when my feet get cold!

Check out Nature's Sleep's online store, and use coupon code BEARS50 to save 50% off any purchase from their online store! This is an amazing deal!! Definitely "Bargain Hound" worthy! These slippers are $30 on their website, and this means you can score a pair for yourself for just $15! (I wear a size 8 and the Mediums fit me perfectly.) But that's not all they carry. I'm sure you've heard of Nature's Sleep before.. they carry memory foam mattresses, pillows, memory foam bed toppers, and even pet beds!

Click here to register with Nature's Sleep and enter in a drawing to win any product from their store! (This will be the only mandatory entry in the Rafflecopter, so you can just do it now, and when you fill out the Rafflecopter form below, you can state you already did it)

Book Review - Murder Under the Microscope by Jane Bennett Munro

Book Review
Murder Under the Microscope
by Jane Bennett Munro

About the Author

Jane Bennett Munro, MD, is a hospital-based pathologist who has been involved in several forensic cases over the course of her thirty-three-year career. Now semi-retired, she lives in Twin Falls, Idaho, where she enjoys music, gardening, and skiing. I've had some pretty interesting experiences and seen some pretty strange things. Some of them would make great stories.  Here's one now, in my first novel of what I hope will become the Toni Day series, Murder Under the Microscope.


Book Description
Murder Under the Microscope is a murder mystery set in a small rural hospital in Twin Falls, Idaho. The story is told in the first person by the pathologist, Toni Day, M.D. Toni is not a forensic pathologist, not a medical examiner, and doesn't deal with murder as a rule; but in this story she finds herself not only involved, but accused, and must solve the mystery to keep herself out of jail and not get murdered herself.

Our Book Review
I found this to be a real thought provoking novel, with twists and turns on every page.  I was hooked from page one, the characters and the setting were superb.

Based around a memorial hospital in Twin Falls, Idaho, a new doctor, Sally Shore, arrives and starts to tarnish the image and credibility of the pathologist Dr Antoinette Day.  After an argument between the two Dr Shore is found deady in Dr Days office.

The above scenario is excellently played out throughout the book, the text and language is easy to read and understand and any jargon is clearly explained.  The knowledge and expertise the author has gained from her own profession as a pathologiest is expertly crafted and scripted into a first class novel.

As murder mysteries are my favourite ready material, for a debut book and author this really rates highly in my library of literature.  I hope this is the first of many novels featuring Dr Day.
