Book #10 The Bradens, Love in Bloom Series #18

Elisabeth Nash has spent years dreaming of returning to the small town of Trusty, Colorado, where she spent summers with her favorite aunt. When she inherits her aunt’s farmette, she closes her Los Angeles pet bakery and pampering business, sure that life in Trusty will be as peaceful and as welcoming as she remembers. But being an outsider in the close-knit town proves to be very different from the happy summers she remembers from her childhood—and falling for Trusty’s hot, wealthy, and sinfully irresistible veterinarian, Ross Braden, sends the rumor mill into a frenzy.

I can not tell you how excited I was when I was picked to do a review and giveaway for a Hallmark Keepsake Ornament.  It is a holiday tradition in my family to get a Christmas ornament every year.  This is the one present that we always know we will receive from my mother.  She gets a Christmas ornament for everyone in the family.  It was funny last year when I heard my cousin and her kids talking about it.  The kids could not wait to find out what ornament they would get that year.

Stay up to date with everything on Book Worm & More by Subscribing to our Email.




NEW RELEASE.....

A mystery set in wine country pitting financial exec Brynn Bancroft against a determined stalker, a troubled love interest, and career clashes.

Brynn Bancroft learns that a former employee who beat her nearly to death has returned to stalk her and her friend, Jillian Hillcrest, also a former victim.

Recently divorced, Brynn turns to a new love interest only to encounter additional unwelcome issues. Meanwhile, short-timer Brynn, who has resigned from her Silicon Valley company, becomes bored fulfilling her remaining responsibilities there. She begins to prefer supporting the launch of her ex-husband’s new hilltop winery while waiting to move to her next position. Between her stalker and her new love interest, Brynn faces a series of life-changing events.

Review:

This is the second book by Joyce T. Strand that I've been able to read and review.  I am hooked.  I love a good mystery especially one with a little bit of romance.  I loved Hilltop Sunset.  I wish I would've read the first books in the series to understand a little more of what happened in the beginning.  Don't get me wrong these books can be read as stand alone books but it is always nice to have a little more of the back story.  You will just have a better understanding of what is going on or why something happened.

Ms. Strand does a great job of grabbing your attention right from the beginning.  You will be pulled into the middle of the action.  At points, you will be screaming at the characters to watch out (even if it is only yelling at them in your mind).  If you are like me, you will have a hard time putting the book down once you have started.  I kept telling myself that I would just read one more page or that I would just finish the chapter and then I would say just one more.  The only problem with books like this one is that I don't seem to get much work done when I'm reading them.

I did find one part of the book a little unrealistic or really kind of happened too fast.  There is a point in the book when Brynn takes on some of the responsibilities of her troubled boyfriend.  I don't really want to say too much about it because I don't want to give away part of the book.  I just don't see where most people would take care of this responsibility so shortly after meeting someone.  I know kind of vague but you will understand when you read the book.

I give this one 4 1/2 stars.  It is a fast paced book full of intrigue.  This book is for mature audiences due to some adult situations.

About Brynn Bancroft
Brynn Bancroft evolved from the Jillian Hillcrest mysteries where she served as Jillian’s manager while Chief Financial Officer of Harmonia Therapeutics in Silicon Valley. A shapely blonde with a MENSA IQ, she had an affair with the CEO of the company. Unfortunately for Brynn, the CEO’s wife figured out that the two were involved and asked Brynn to leave the company, which she agreed to do. In the meantime, her husband, Liam—not unfamiliar with extramarital affairs himself but also understanding that Brynn grew up in an abusive household- grew tired of waiting for Brynn to commit to their relationship and asked for a divorce. At the same time, he solicited her assistance in developing his new winery in Sonoma County, Calif. Much like Jillian--who does appear in the Brynn Bancroft mysteries--Brynn, too, attracts mystery and murders as she grows to enjoy life at her ex-husband’s Hilltop Sunset Winery.

About the Author
Joyce Strand, much like her fictional character Jillian Hillcrest, served as head of corporate communications at several biotech and high-tech companies in Silicon Valley for more than 25 years. Unlike Jillian, however, she did not encounter murder in her career. She focused on writing articles and press releases and delivering presentations to publicize her companies.

Joyce has been a mystery fan since she read her first Nancy Drew and Hardy Boy stories as a teen-ager. She has always enjoyed the challenge of following clues to solve a mystery before it is revealed. Therefore Joyce relished the transition from writing press releases to writing fiction.

Joyce received her Ph.D. from The George Washington University, Washington, D.C. and her B.A. from Dickinson College, Carlisle, PA.   She lives with her two cats in Southern California near San Diego.

Stone Patrick


Small-town lawyer Taylour Dixxon meets Sarah Cockrell Baines, a New Jersey socialite and millionairess, and their budding friendship begins with promise. However, soon after they meet, Sarah is arrested for the murder of her husband. When Taylour volunteers to defend Sarah, she has no idea that her struggling solo law practice in the sleepy, fictional, small town of Marlinsville, Texas, will be turned upside down.


From a lovable, adolescent nephew who moves in with her, to a hired assassin who is determined to hide the truth, and a handsome Texas Ranger who becomes the object of affection in a love triangle between the two friends, Taylour’s life will never be the same.

Review:

I love mystery books.  I love the suspense and challenge of trying to find out what happened.  Well, this book definitely filled the challenge.  Stone Patrick did a wonderful job of keeping me on the edge of my seat and holding my interest throughout the book.  Once I started the book, I couldn't put it down.  It has a little bit of everything including a possible love interest.  You will go from one person to another thinking they are the guilty party.

I love that Taylour is a small town lawyer with the smarts to take on anyone and everyone.  She has the small town values while being able to deal with the big city personalities.  She can hang with the best of them.  Taylour is the type of person that I would want on my side and to defend me if I ever needed it.

I give this book 5 stars.  It will leave you wanting for more.  In fact, I will be waiting impatiently for the next book from Stone Patrick.  I could easily become addicted to his books.  I think I read this one in less than a day because I just couldn't put it down.  So, treat yourself and get this book.  You will be taken to another world of twists and turns and plenty of mystery to keep you guessing.

NEW RELEASE.....

Everyone needs a guardian angel, especially children of this world who are tossed aside like yesterday's trash. But what if that angel is cloaked in vengeance, immune to human qualities of remorse or compassion, seemingly carrying a torch for justice, yet driven by a tenacious indignation.
