When did that happen?

30 Jan

I totally feel like the Minion in this clip:

Yeah. Whaaaaaat? January is over? When did that happen? Between work (I do have a real job that really pays the bills), the virtual book tour for Me Tarzan–You Jane, school starting for Pat (sophomore year in college, spring semester), doctor appointments, monthly author club meeting held at my house, a little bit of sleeping and eating, a few dates with my hubby and puff!, the month is over. 

At times I do wish time would stand still especially when something good happens. I’m always afraid I don’t savor enough those moments, too eager to move forward and wrapped in whatever comes next. Other times  . . . thank goodness, those times are gone :).

Book Blast–Jeremy’s Promise by A.R. Talley

20 Jan

Jeremy's PromiseJeremy’s Promise by A.R. Talley

The trip that was meant to save Annie and Jeremy’s marriage brought it to near ruin. Now Annie has returned home, frightened and confused. Jeremy, too, is frightened—and angry. What will it take to save their marriage?

It’s clear. Jeremy needs to forgive—Annie needs to forget.

A promise is made. A tragedy occurs. A second honeymoon is disrupted. A chance encounter brings David Andrews back into Annie’s life.

Annie is determined to remain faithful. She’s made a promise she intends to keep—Jeremy’s Promise.

Praise for Jeremy’s Promise

A.R. Talley, gives you a believable look at the struggle of one couple to reconnect and heal their marriage, with dialog which sweeps you into the moment as if you were there with them, experiencing both their pain and recovery. Kudos to the author who has once again produced a book I couldn’t put down, as well as one I felt compelled to read multiple times. ~Donna Dech

Jeremy’s Promise second book in a trilogy by A.R. Talley is an awesome, emotional, romantic, highly recommended, well written story with captivating and engaging characters. ~Debbie Ballard
This is not a book I would have picked by myself! I loved it from start to finish! Eagerly waiting for the third book in the trilogy to come out!! I highly recommend this book! ~Goodreads
