BOOK DESCRIPTION: FULL DESCRIPTION
Lisa Kaamp operates a small childcare business out of her home in Nogeksum, Michigan. Highly respected and known for going the extra mile for her daycare kids, she thinks she’s handled every daycare emergency possible. But nothing prepares her for the horror she now faces.
Lisa finds herself bound and gagged, four strange men in her home, and the daycare children held hostage in the next room. Terrorized by her captors as the authorities work to meet the ransom deadline, she tries negotiating with the men for the release of the children, but soon realizes they have no intention of letting anyone go.
With the deadline approaching, Lisa must do the unimaginable to protect the children and get everyone out alive.
“With Paws and Kisses – Funny letters by Lolo, the Dog” is no self-help book for dogs, but a collection of funny stories about the life of a mixed-breed dog named Lolo. In her letters to her friend Emilie, a black French bulldog, Lolo tells us about her little adventures, which she experiences in the human world. Of course these are told from her point of view, which differs a tiny, marginal bit from that of her human pack.
Lolo tells us about her impressions and experiences in her life with her humans, and comments on them accordingly. The reader will, for example, see the visit at the vet, a holiday trip, and encounters with other dogs from the point of view of a dog. Thus it can happen that human normality doesn´t appear quite as normal anymore.
Graham had a simple life: A job he enjoyed, a wife that he loved, and a young son that kept each and every day full of surprises. But when his father passed away unexpectedly, he inherited a family heirloom that would begin to…complicate matters.
A mirror that had been in his family for generations, Graham quickly found that its reflections were out of the ordinary, and that it had prophetic powers beyond his comprehension. Giving him just a momentary glance at souls who were on the knife’s edge of life and death, it was up to him to try to save them as they were thrust unknowingly into his path.
Finding a way to balance his daily life with this newfound responsibility was proving arduous enough, but when the mirror begins showing him reflections of his own family, Graham finds his world irretrievably changed. Will he be able to save them, or will he be forced to live with the same regret that so many have suffered before him?
What they’re saying:
“This was a compelling, nicely plotted piece that eerily crept up, and kept a cool, even ratcheting up of suspense. A well woven, structurally precise tale that would translate well to the screen.”
“Once again, Ms Novelle grabs your attention with the first paragraph and leaves you hoping to see these characters again in another of her works! She has an amazing ability to develop her characters within just a few sentences leaving you to feel you have known them for years and are sharing the story, not as a reader, but as part of the plot itself. This new work is of a different genre however as deeply thought out and developed as her other works. It is so exciting and refreshing to find an author that can not only develop amazing characters and plots, but can do that across many genre successfully.
This book delves to the very core of one’s soul. We all want to be a vital participate of humanity, to care deeply for and protect our loved ones and, given the ability, to be able to alter the course of another person’s life so that death can be prevented just by one person caring enough to intervene.
If given that oportunity, how would you respond? And so begins the choices for Graham.
A riviting, fast pace story of suspence, love and life altering choices.”
They say there are five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.
Not everyone will grieve in this order, nor will everyone go through every stage. It’s during the stage of denial when Alex Hart meets Andrew Foster. He takes her one-step closer to acceptance: the stage when new, meaningful relationships are formed. The stage when the realization occurs that this is now the new state of normal.
Just when Alex thinks she is on her way to healing, she enters the bargaining phase. That’s the phase where you wonder what you could have done differently. You wonder “what if?” Specifically, what if the ones you loved hadn’t left you?
Leaving…this is what makes heading off to war so difficult and frightening for Alex. She knows all too well what it’s like to be the one on the losing end of life, which is why she’s made it her personal mission in life to save as many lives as possible. The extreme high she gets from treating trauma victims turns into Alex’s own form of therapy, or so she thinks.
When faced with her world being turned upside down, Alex may just find that her true therapy is in the one who has always saved her.
