Modogamous - Book Tour & Giveaway

Kate Adams has it all figured out. Five years out of college, she’s got a steady job, a home she loves in the big city, and good friends who always keep her laughing:  her stylish but nosy roommate Evette, happily-married Cecie, and of course, good old Mitch, her seriously cute co-worker who’s been stuck in the Friend Zone since the day they met.

Everything is going just fine—until the night Kate crosses the line with Mitch, and the boundaries between friendship and love begin to blur. Things get even more complicated when hunky JP enters the scene. What’s a girl to do? Add to the mix a spunky little pug Kate never expected to fall for, and her neatly-ordered life is starting to look more like a dog’s dinner.  Maybe her roommate has the right idea after all:  forget the men, and stick with a canine companion instead.

It’s time for Kate to figure out what she really wants in life. But can she dig her way out of the mess she’s created before she ends up permanently in the doghouse?

The Man of Her Dreams - Review & Giveaway

Review by Darcey Pickett

This novel takes us to one of my favorite places, Ireland, where we meet Piper McKenzie; she is beautiful, young and rich.  Her family legacy is held within the wealthy McKenzie Leisure.  Piper works with her father learning the family business, as she hopes to take over for him one day.

The path to success does not come easy, Piper is working to establish her place in the family business, she is learning the trade, even conducting business deals for her father, a very powerful, hardworking man who is not quite ready to let go of the reigns to his children.  This will prove to be a bad decision on his part. 

Piper seems to have it all; we see that there is more than meets the eye with her marriage, her relationship with her brother and the family business.  Piper is a strong, devoted woman and that shines throughout the story. 

Piper is sent to Spain to broker her first deal for the family business; this is a place she has been before.  Rich with history and beauty the town of Marbella is where she finally becomes the person she wants to be.  Can she truly find happiness on what could have been that many years ago?

I found this book to be a quick read, which caused me to finish my tasks at hand so I could dive back in.  Ms. McCabe has a talent for drawing a reader in and holding on tight.  I felt a strong connection to Piper, as she is a devoted mother, wife and daughter.  The challenges she faces throughout the book only prove what type of woman she strives to be.  If you are looking for a well-paced, warm, delightful read, I highly recommend The Man of Her Dreams!
