A Letter From America

It is the late 60’s in Tullamore, County Offaly, and life is full of exciting possibilities for Fiona Tracey, as she prepares to leave Ireland to work for a wealthy family in New York.

Fiona’s parents have the local shop and bar, and her younger sisters are already leading independent lives. Bridget is at a convent school preparing to be a nun and Angela has led a life of her own since she was hospitalised up in Dublin for years with childhood polio.

Then, sudden tragedy forces Fiona to postpone her departure for New York. As her mother sinks into illness and depression, her responsibilities mount. When help is offered by her aunt and cousin, Fiona is mystified by her mother’s animosity towards them.

As summer approaches, an American architect, Michael O’Sullivan, takes a room above the bar. Within a short time Fiona finds herself involved in an unexpected and passionate affair.

Then, as a surprising incident threatens Bridget’s vocation, Angela uncovers information which explodes old family secrets.

Before Fiona can embark on an independent life again, perhaps in New York, she must find a new understanding of her family – and of herself.


I recently finished reading:

Immortal Blood (Guardians of the Grail Book 1) by [Stella Wilkinson]

A beautiful witch. A warrior vampire. A journey of desire and danger…

When Lachlan Thorn is entrusted with the task of relocating the Holy Grail, he’d rather work alone. Unfortunately, he requires magical assistance and the only option is Ivy, a gorgeous and feisty witch whose ability to distract him might prove fatal for them both.

Ivy Meadows is new to her inherited magic and had no idea it would draw the attention of vampires. Especially not one who’s a red hot Highlander. She soon learns that while her spells are essential to the protection of the Grail, the success of Lachlan’s mission might be the key to protecting all mankind.

With a horde of enemies literally snapping at their necks, the duo embark on a quest to the mists of Scotland. As passion and peril collide, Ivy is forced back in time, where she connects with Lachlan in the past and discovers the truth about their bond. But Lachlan is tested with an impossible choice. Can he stay resolute in his duty to the Grail even if it means losing the only woman he’s ever truly loved?


What books I think I’ll read next:

A Noble Affair by [Jennie Goutet]

Is there such a thing as Prince Charming?

Chastity didn’t take a teaching job in France to find hers, but a woman can dream, n’est ce pas?

If the father of one of her students—the Viscount Charles Jean Anne Monorie de Brase—is the best local example of princes, Charming or Otherwise, Chastity is ready to put aside any thought of falling in love again.

As much as she would prefer him to keep his distance, it seems there is no avoiding each other. With the ongoing pressure of a repentant ex-boyfriend, a nefarious drug dealer, and an art heist that spans the decades, Chastity and the viscount are thrown together by circumstances she would soon rather forget.

As the intimacy between Charles and Chastity deepens, they must decide if their love is enough to bridge the gap between their disparate worlds, and if happily ever after can exist outside of fairy tales.

Pretty Reckless: A Roommates to Lovers, Tortured Hero Standalone by [Jane Anthony]

I didn’t ask Chase to take me in when my life fell apart. Turns out my BFF has some kind of sick white-knight complex I can’t wrap my head around. He told me I could stay with him under one condition: Absolutely no drugs or booze.

What a killjoy, right?

Despite his bad-boy exterior, Chase has always been my safe haven. The tattooed antidote to my life of crazy. Moving in with him seemed like a great idea but I never expected to start thinking about him the way I have been.

Fantasizing. Lusting. Wondering.

Until a moment of weakness lands him in my bed.

One night of toe-curling, back-bowing passion I’ll never forget. And I’ve tried. It’s impossible.

Chase didn’t fight like hell to get clean and sober just to toss it away on a hot mess like me. I’m a lost cause. Yet, it’s a reckless risk he seems willing to take… even if my salvation means his ruin.

From USA Today bestselling author, Jane Anthony, comes a stunning, standalone masterpiece about addiction, recovery, and reckless, ugly, never-ending love.

**this story is now a full-length standalone

Fatal Desires (Fatal Cross Live! Book 1) by [Theresa Hissong]

Fatal Desires


Fatal Cross Live!


Book 1


For years, I have worked behind the scenes for my cousin’s band, living my life as simply as possible. Running the inner workings of a rock band is the only thing I know to do. My only saving grace is a long vacation soaking up the sun in some exotic locations around the world between tours.


One steamy night on an island with Taylor Vaughn, the guitarist for the rock band Fatal Cross, and my world is turned upside down. When he doesn’t return my calls, I end up going through hell alone. Little do I know, he’s fighting his own personal demons.


When he fills in on my cousin’s tour for a few weeks, I am forced to work with the man who stole my heart months before on a private island. It isn’t easy being around him, but I am determined to keep my head low and pray this tour ends soon, but does anything ever go as planned?

    1. It was interesting. There was an interesting spin to the legend. I did go and read the blurbs for the other books and they seem to deal with other mythical items (the crown of thorns, the spear that pierced Jesus’s side when he was on the cross to name a couple).

  1. A Letter From America looks and sounds interesting. I am also interested in Immortal Blood, even though that is not a genre I normally read. The Holy Grail aspect sounds interesting. Enjoy them all Jolie.
