Like Never Before by Melissa Tagg


  A mystery. And a love they didn't see coming.

Maple Valley became Amelia Bentley's haven after her heart and her dreams of a family were shattered. But her new life as a newspaper editor is shaken when the small-town paper is in danger of closing. Her one hope: A lead on an intriguing story that just might impress the new publisher...if only she knew who he was.

After his biggest campaign success yet, widowed speechwriter Logan Walker now has the chance of a lifetime--a spot on a presidential campaign. But his plans are interrupted when he finds out he's inherited his hometown newspaper. He travels home intent on selling the paper and spending some much-needed time with his young daughter before making the leap into national politics.

But instead of a quick sale and peaceful break from his hectic career, Logan finds himself helping Amelia chase her story. She's scrappy, but wounded. He's dependable, but lost. They may butt heads more than expected, but a series of leads on Maple Valley's quirky unsolved mystery is just the start of the sparks that fly in the office and in their hearts.

My thoughts:  I enjoyed reading this book.   I will certainly look for her books.  
I got this book from Bethany House Publishers.  This is my own thoughts and opinion.

Influenster Maybelline Matte and Poreless

I was excited to get this product from Influenster.   This is from Maybelline Matte and Poreless Foundation.  I received shade 222 True Beige.  I like it so far.  It is smooth, blends really nice, and a little bit goes a long way.  It is not heavy and it looks natural. 

I am pleased with this product line.  It will be added to my favorites!  Thanks Influenster!!!

This was sent to me by Influenster to try, test, and review this Fit Me Foundation.  This is my own opinion.  Everything else I used for my make up I purchased with my own money.

Braking For Bodies by Duffy Brown

Evie Bloomfield puts the pedal to the metal—in the latest Cycle Path mystery from the national bestselling author of Geared for the Grave.

Moving from Los Angeles to small, picturesque Mackinac Island to work in a bike shop might seem crazy, but Evie knows it’s the best decision she’s ever made. That’s not to say she’s gotten rid of all her stress; after all, the upcoming Lilac Festival has everyone in town riding in circles.

But things really go downhill when a ferry full of tourists—including Evie’s friend Fiona’s former boss, the editor of a sleazy rag in LA—arrives on the island. No one knows why Peephole Perry came all the way to Mackinac, but things aren’t looking good for Fiona when Peep is found dead. Now Evie has to gear up and get a grip on the truth if she wants to clear her friend’s name...

 My thoughts
I really enjoyed this book.   This is the second book in  her series for A Cycle Path Mystery.  It is set in Mackinaw Island.  This book has charm, heart warming characters, and very funny!  I felt like I was in the island with Evie, biking all over town.  I could relate to her huffing and puffing.  This had me trying to guess and figure out who did it.  I was entertained reading this.  I hope there is another book coming out. 

 I was so lucky to get an advance copy of this book from Duffy Brown.   This is my own opinion and honest review.   I plan to get book one Geared for The Grave so my set will be complete for this series.
