CAPTURE THE MOMENT: Riveting YA Novel

Called "the Judy Blume of this generation," Cynthia Toney broaches delicate issues in this her second of the Bird Face series. With 4.7 Stars, this book is a steal at only 99¢ - TODAY ONLY!

Get 10 STEPS TO GIRLFRIEND STATUS!

"Without knowing or caring where I'd wind up, I sneaked out of the house and took off running." 
Wendy Robichaud is on schedule to have everything she wants in high school: two loyal best friends, a complete and happy family, and a hunky boyfriend she's had a crush on since eighth grade--until she and Mrs. Villaturo look at old photo albums together. That's when Mrs. V sees her dead husband and hints at a 1960s scandal down in Cajun country. Faster than you can say "crawdad," Wendy digs into the scandal and into trouble. She risks losing boyfriend David by befriending Mrs. V's cute hearing-impaired grandson, alienates stepsister Alice by having a boyfriend in the first place, and upsets her friend Gayle without knowing why. 
Will Wendy be able to prevent Mrs. V from being taken thousands of miles away? And will she lose all the friends she's fought so hard to gain?

This story addresses first innocent romance, a blended family, friendship with an Alzheimer's victim, and an ancestral interracial relationship.

Here's what readers have said about 10 STEPS TO GIRLFRIEND STATUS:

A Judy Blume for this generation. With refreshing candidness, the author lets us see through Wendy's eyes as she navigates her first crush, her first heartbreak, her first dealings with mortality, and the difficulties in blending a family and learning about dark family secrets.


This is another winner for Cynthia Toney. I loved Bird Face, the first in the series. However, 10 Steps to Girlfriend Status can be read without reading Bird Face as it is a stand alone novel, but I highly recommend you don't miss out on either one. These are great coming of age stories for young people. So insightful. I wish I had been able to read these books when I was growing up. Do yourself a favor and read these two novels, and then give them as a gift to some young people you know, because they have something to offer everyone.


Cynthia Toney's attention to detail makes this book outstanding. And Wendy's unique voice is still spot on. Cynthia has a knack for active use of verbs, no passive writing from this author. Cynthia kept my attention through the whole book, especially when Wendy set out to discover what happened to a relative of the past. I found the relationship between Wendy and her boyfriend sweet, and very clean. Nice going!


If only I had read a book like this when I was in junior high! Wendy is so much like I was, but I didn't figure out the 10th step until way past high school.
Cynthia Toney brings back to my mind all those horrible insecurities of the teen years, and weaves a story of wise advice against the background of our nation's history in race relations.
This book won't be on sale again this year, so don't miss your opportunity to get it at 75% off!

And while you're in the mood to get a good deal on a great book, pre-order THE SECRET HEART by Marie Wells Coutu (the 3rd stand-alone story in her Mended Vessels series) for only $2.99 - a 40% discount!

CAPTURE THE MOMENT: Romancing an Award-Winner!

Betty Thomason Owens won The Grace Award for ANNABELLE'S RUTH and has received 4.8 Stars from reviewers. This outstanding book is available TODAY ONLY for 40% off (just $2.99) at Amazon.

“If you think you can come back here and throw yourself on my mercy, you are quite wrong.” After their husbands perish in a fishing boat accident, Connie Cross determines to follow her mother-in-law, Annabelle, from Southern California to Tennessee. Her misgivings begin as they cross the bridge over the muddy Mississippi River. In their new town, where living conditions are far below their previous expectations, they must set up a household and hunt for work to survive. Thanks to the kindness of Annabelle’s handsome, young cousin, life begins to settle down. But Connie has a secret that could uproot them once again.
Inspired by the Book of Ruth, Annabelle’s Ruth is a 1950’s era “Ruth” story, set in western Tennessee. How will Connie adapt to her new life amid the cotton farms, racial tension, and culture shock?
Here are some of the things readers have said about ANNABELLE'S RUTH:
When I began reading Annabelle’s Ruth by Betty Thomason Owens I decided to put aside my knowledge of the biblical story of Naomi, Ruth and Boaz and allow the author’s story to carry my imagination. After reading Annabelle’s Ruth I went to the Bible and read once again the wonderful story of love that endures. The author triumphed over the challenging endeavor to take a well-loved story and make it fresh and relevant.


This beautiful story is told gently and thoughtfully--trademark of Betty's writing. Readers of women's fiction will enjoy this one.


The tone and atmosphere of this Appalachian-feel story was so realistic I felt like I was living in 1950's Tennessee. The dialect was perfect, the setting beautifully described, and the characters completely identifiable.


I thoroughly enjoyed this 1950's-era retelling of the biblical story of Ruth. Connie and Annabelle are both such sympathetic characters. The depiction of Tennessee was very well done. The blossoming love between Connie and Alton was sweet. And I loved the dog! I highly recommend this book!
 This outstanding story won't be on sale again before next year! Take advantage of the opportunity!

CAPTURE THE MOMENT: Nowhere to Turn!

Fay Lamb's suspense books tend to have a sweet romance, and her romance series is just as highly acclaimed. CHARISSE, the first book of Fay's Ties that Bind series, has received 4.9 of 5 stars from 20 different people. An outstanding rating! And you can get the book TODAY for on 99¢ (that's more than 80% off!)

Get CHARISSE!

Charisse Wellman’s husband has been gone a year, and she’s about to lose the only home her son, V.J., has ever known. She’s quit law school but the money just isn’t there. Her only option is to work as a law clerk for her ex-friend, Gideon Tabor. The only problem: Gideon is the judge who let her husband’s killer go free, and Gideon doesn’t know the connection.
Gideon Tabor can’t believe that the woman interviewing for the job is the girl he loved in high school. Charisse is hesitant about accepting his job offer, and when she does, Gideon makes every attempt to apologize for his relationship-ending blunder in high school. Charisse accepts his apology, but she keeps him at a distance. When Gideon learns that Charisse’s anger actually stems from his release of the man who ran down her husband, he tries to explain, but Charisse doesn’t want Gideon’s excuses or the love he has to offer. She wants her husband’s killer to pay.
Here are some of the quotes from readers:
Haven't enjoyed a book like this in a long time. So used to my mysteries & historical romance, I forgot the joys of a real life story & God's role in our lives. Refreshed & uplifted is how this story comes across. Tragedy can lead to true forgiveness & love if we step out of God's way.


I love this book. Charisse and young V.J. come to vivid life through the author’s skilled writing. From the first paragraphs I cared about her predicament and her son’s stark grief. When Judge Gideon Tabor is introduced, it’s easy to picture the football quarterback turned successful lawyer. More handsome than any guy has a right to be, with the bonus of a soft side. The relationship between Charisse, VJ and Gideon tugs at the heart as they struggle through present and past disappointments and dreams. Misunderstandings become huge barriers, as they can in real life. But faith also plays an important role in this story, and that brings hope.

With its well-written, heart-warming message of forgiveness and second chances, Charisse readily earns five stars. Highly recommended.


I'm so mad at myself! I started this book at about 11:00 p.m. And it is now 3:20!!!! I could not put the book down! It is one of the best books I have ever read! I am so glad I purchased this! Please keep writing! You are a fabulous author !! I loved the spiritual truths, I loved the romance, I loved the unexpected twist! I would give this book far more than five stars! Great job!


I really enjoyed this book. It was such a wonderful story of second chances, love, forgiveness and God's love. As a widow, I could definitely relate to the main character's emotions and her journey in finding God's plan for her life. This was a wonderful read and I definitely look forward to the next book in the series.
Don't miss this highly acclaimed read for more than 80% off! Your comfy reading chair deserves this uplifting, inspiring romance! Get CHARISSE!

"What a blessing! This book came highly recommended by my daughter who read it in two days so I took the ebook on my flight to Israel. Altough I have over 2,000 book in my library, I NEVER read fiction books. However, this book sure passed the time much faster than all of the heavy reading to which I am accustomed."

"Saving Eric is captivating! It catapults the reader from CIA Headquarters to an African mission hospital with stops in-between. Its characters are believable. Its plot is engrossing. Its message is profound. Having read it quickly to find out what happens next, I will read it again slowly to reflect on redemption. Definitely hope Joan Deneve has another work in progress!"


"What a powerful, heart touching story Joan Deneve has crafted in Saving Eric. I picked up the book after seeing it recommended by a friend and I have not been disappointed. Just the opposite actually. I am thoroughly impressed with Joan's storytelling gift and completely in love with the characters she's created. Except for the bad guy of course."
