Excerpt: PUPCAKES by Annie England Noblin

ABOUT PUPCAKES

Sit! Stay! Speak! author Annie England Noblin’s novel takes one woman starting over, adds an aging pug named Teddy Roosevelt, and proves the power of a well-baked dog treat.

All she wants is a settled-down life.

What she gets is a dog—and a whole new normal . . .

There he stood in the doorway: overweight, depressed and nearly homeless—a pug named Teddy Roosevelt. Teddy was Brydie Benson’s latest problem, arriving on top of her messy divorce and sudden move. Brydie needed a place to start over, so this rent-free home seemed a great idea. She just never counted on Teddy, or his owner, the Germantown Retirement Village’s toughest customer, Pauline Neumann.

And because rent-free doesn’t mean bills-free, Brydie gets a night-shift job at a big-box grocery. Whoever guessed there were so many people who wanted baked goods after midnight?

Then, she gets an idea—why not combine her baking skills with her new-found dog knowledge? And so her store Pupcakes is born. Along with a new start comes a possible new love, in the form of Nathan Reid, a local doctor with a sassy Irish Wolfhound named Sasha. And as fall turns to winter, and then to Christmas, Brydie begins to realize that life is a little bit like learning a new recipe for puff pastry—it takes a few tries to get it just right!

 

Excerpt:

After dinner, Nathan refilled their wineglasses and led her into the living room. Sasha and Teddy had settled there as well, and when Nathan built a fire in the fireplace, Teddy dropped right in front of it and started to snore. Sasha wasn’t far behind him.

“The living room at Mrs. Neumann’s house has a fireplace, too,” Brydie said. “I thought about lighting it the other night, but it hasn’t been lit in ages.”

“I’m sure she wouldn’t appreciate it if you burned her house down trying to light the fireplace,” Nathan replied.

“No, I can’t imagine that would make her too happy.”

“Listen,” Nathan said, scooting closer to her on the couch. “I’m sorry if I asked too many intrusive questions earlier. I’m hopeless at small talk, and when I get nervous, I tend to fall back into doctor mode. I swear I didn’t mean to interrogate you over chicken.”

“That’s okay,” Brydie replied. “It was actually kind of nice to talk about it with someone who doesn’t know anything about my life before I moved here.”

“How do you like Memphis so far?”

“It’s getting better,” Brydie said with a sly grin. Between the wine and the fire, she felt deliciously warm.

“I’m glad to hear it.”

Brydie watched him watching her. She liked the way his curly black hair fell in his eyes when he was concentrating. She liked the way his T-shirt fit, not too loose or too tight. She liked the way he asked her questions—soft, curious, but not intrusive. It made her want to tell him everything, anything, just to keep him looking at her. Paying attention to her.

But more than that, she realized, there was something familiar about him, comfortable. She couldn’t put her finger on what it was, but despite the constant butterflies in her stomach, he made her feel calmer somehow. She could understand why people would be drawn to him as a doctor. She could even understand why a woman might visit her elderly aunt in order to be near him.

Nathan moved a hand up to Brydie’s face, tucking a wandering strand of damp hair behind her ear. It sent a bolt of electricity through her, and when he moved his hand away, Brydie felt herself grabbing a fistful of his T-shirt and pulling him closer to her until her mouth was on his, and she could taste the wine on his lips.

Brydie fell back into the couch and pulled Nathan down on top of her. She could feel his hands exploring her body underneath her T-shirt, and she burned with a need she hadn’t known existed until that very moment.

“Do you want—” Nathan began in between frenzied kisses, but before he could finish, the ringing of his phone in his pocket cut him off.

“Ignore it,” Brydie murmured.

“I can’t,” Nathan said, pulling himself away from her with a groan. “I’m on call at the nursing home tonight.”

My Weekly Bible Journaling #36 – Ezra

bible

 

This has been a good week! Just a few highlights:

-One of my boys found a job!

-Another one of my boys made some significance progress in one of his school studies!

-My five month old is almost crawling!

-It is finally feeling like Fall today!

Even with all these good things we still have some things we are praying for. We have a family member that has serious health concerns that we are worried about. We are also praying for my husband’s job. No matter what – whether we are going through good times or not so good times – we still Praise the Name of the Lord and thank Him for all our Blessings!

This is what I have read and journaled in my Beautiful Word Coloring Bible this week:

1

This has been a busy week but I finally finished 2 Chronicles and I am now starting the book of Ezra. I have a feeling I will not finish reading through the Bible this year. That is ok because I am happy with taking my time and seeing what the Lord has to show me.

“This is what Cyrus king of Persia says: “‘The Lord, the God of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth and he has appointed me to build a temple for him at Jerusalem in Judah. Any of his people among you may go up, and may the Lord their God be with them.’”                         – 2 Chronicles 36:23

“This is what Cyrus king of Persia says: “‘The Lord, the God of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth and he has appointed me to build a temple for him at Jerusalem in Judah.  – Ezra 1:2

Can you tell by my colors that I am in a Fall mood today! I am feeling the browns and coppers today as I read this passage:

With praise and thanksgiving they sang to the Lord: “He is good; his love toward Israel endures forever.” And all the people gave a great shout of praise to the Lord, because the foundation of the house of the Lord was laid.
– Ezra 3:11

20171011_193207

After I finished cleaning the house on Saturday I found some time to read and journaling this page. What a wonderful way to relax on a quiet day!

May God, who has caused his Name to dwell there, overthrow any king or people who lifts a hand to change this decree or to destroy this temple in Jerusalem.
I Darius have decreed it. Let it be carried out with diligence. – Ezra 6:12

$100 Amazon Gift Card or Paypal Cash Giveaway: Game Changer by Charissa Stastny

  Game Changer by Charissa Stastny

Meridee Mansford wants nothing to do with the popular crowd. She’s comfortable being invisible. But that doesn’t stop her from dreaming about the hunky football player who visits the campus ice cream shop where she works. Still, she’s smart enough to know he’d never notice a girl like her, and she’d never want him even if he did. Too much unwelcome attention. Parker Harrington basks in the glory that’s been his since the game-changing passes he caught that pushed his team into the national spotlight.

Sticky Fingers is his media moniker now, and the cheerleaders who used to ignore him when he sat the bench have become his most devoted fans. But when he accidentally crashes into a quiet coed and covers her in orange chicken, it throws off his offensive game. As fate, ice cream, and orange chicken throw the opposites together, will Parker continue keeping company with women he knows are only using him for his fame, or will he change up the game and risk his heart on a genuine girl who despises the attention he craves? Praise for the Book

“A fun and flirty new adult romance. It’s a sweet indulgence that keeps you turning pages. The start to what is sure to be a great new series. – Jennifer Peel, author of Pianos and Promises series “Opposites attract when the overlooked sweet girl lands herself the popular football star in this quasi-Cinderella story. It’s the perfect read to keep you up way past your bedtime…”Taylor Dean, author of Chasing Fireflies

 

   Excerpt:

He reached out and grabbed my hand. “Meridee, I wondered if I could take you out tomorrow night. To make up for that mishap in the CUB, you know?” I blinked, but couldn’t move. Couldn’t even form words. In fanciful daydreams, I’d imagined him holding my hand like this, but never had I expected it to happen. Holy llama. It felt as though Parker was an electrical socket, sending a steady stream of tingling energy pulsing through our connected hands. And wait! Had he just asked me out? I was still playing catch-up. But when his words registered, it was like a bucket of icy water over my head. I whipped my hand away from him. “No, thank you.”

I rubbed the shiny counter to conceal a furious blush. For a moment, I’d allowed myself to believe he was serious. “You don’t have to make up for anything. Let’s forget that whole debacle ever happened, shall we?” “Oh, come on. I need a date, and you need some fun.” I scowled. What did he mean by that? Did I appear that pathetic? “Please. I don’t bite.” He playfully chomped his teeth. My lips twitched. “I’ve stopped playing football in the CUB, and haven’t tackled any more girls to the floor. You’ve had a reforming influence on me, Mare.” I narrowed my eyes. “It’s Meridee.” “Please say you’ll go with me, Meridee. We’ll play miniature golf, see a movie. Pretty please with huckleberries on top?”

Why would he want to date me when he had that gorgeous cheerleader and every other girl on campus throwing themselves at him? My knees pulled together and I tucked my arms into my side. He really must pity me. “I can’t.” I returned to my needless wiping. “Why not? Do you work?” “No,” I said, grateful I didn’t have to lie. Mom always said my eyes gave me away. “I have tomorrow off.” My body needed the R&R. “Then you can go.” He leaned over the counter and winked. No wonder he wasn’t used to hearing no. When not tackling girls to the floor, he could be very persuasive.

I clenched my rag. “No, I can’t. I already have a date.” “Cancel it. Surely he’s not as great a catch as me.” I scrubbed the toppings area with gusto. “I can’t cancel on my fiancé.” I crossed my fingers, hoping that whopper might stay his pity. “You’re engaged?” His disbelieving tone whacked my ego. I nodded without meeting his gaze.        Author Charissa Stastny Charissa Stastny is an avid reader, happy writer, wasp-hater, iris-lover, and food connoisseur (especially sushi and chocolate, but not together).

$10 Starbucks or Amazon Gift Card Giveaway: The Death of the Kona Man by Catherine Bruns

 
Death of the Kona Man
Aloha Lagoon Mysteries Book 9
by Catherine Bruns
Genre: Cozy Mystery

From USA Today bestselling author Catherine Bruns comes the next deadly delicious Carrie Jorgenson adventure in paradise…


Carrie Jorgenson is living the dream in Hawaii. She has a steady job as a waitress at the Loco Moco Café, a hot new love interest in her manager, and the curtain’s about to rise on her role in a local theater production. But when she’s asked to deliver food to a guest at the Aloha Lagoon resort—who then drops dead!—her dreams quickly become the stuff of nightmares.

 

World renowned food critic Randolph Cremshaw has no shortage of enemies. He’s rude, patronizing, and famous for his one-star reviews. After the coffee Carrie delivers is discovered to have been poisoned, she and the café quickly rise to the top of the suspects list. A jealous co-worker, thefts at the restaurant, and a performance that threatens to blow up in Carrie’s face only make things worse. With an already full plate, Carrie is also forced into making a decision that may change everything for her. But this all pales in comparison when she comes face to face with Randolph’s killer and what might be the final curtain call…of her life.

 

Recipes included!

EXCERPT:

Randolph stepped back so that I could roll the cart inside. He was dressed in a dingy white undershirt and black slacks that dragged on the floor, his long, narrow bare feet poking out from underneath. I tried hard not to stare at the crusted-over toenails that screamed fungus at me.

“Welcome to my parlor, said the spider to the fly.”

Yikes. For some reason, the word icky popped into my head. “Please enjoy your breakfast, sir. You can place the cart in the hallway when you’re done, and one of our staff will pick it up later.”

I began to walk away, and he grabbed me by the wrist. “Not so fast.”

Startled by his action, I shook myself loose. “Don’t touch me again.”

“Sorry.” Randolph gave a small smirk that said he was anything but sorry. He looked me up and down. “I’d like you to wait a moment until I’m sure the meal is to my liking.”

I had news for this man—no meal was ever going to be to his liking. He lifted the covers off the plates one by one, examining the food while he grunted in apparent satisfaction. Finally, he picked up the white coffee carafe, poured himself a cup, and sniffed. Like the other day at the café, he took a small sip, grimaced, then shook his head at me. “Not quite, doll.”

“Sir?” I was confused. Poncho had used his precious Kona beans this time, so what could be the problem?

“It’s cold. Bring me another carafe right away.”

I couldn’t believe my ears. Anger bubbled at the surface and threatened to boil over any second. What I really wanted to do was throw the entire carafe in his face, but then I’d be out of a job and, knowing Randolph, looking at a lawsuit.

“Is there a problem, dear?”

The man clearly enjoyed the fact that he was goading me, but I was determined not to let him get under my skin. “No, sir. I’ll be back in a few minutes.”

“Text Chef Paunch ahead of time,” Randolph taunted, “so that the coffee will be ready when you get back. That’s a good little girl.”

I bit into my lower lip to temper my reply. “His name is Poncho.”

“Whatever. He’s got quite the paunch on him, so my name fits. And do hurry up. I haven’t got all day.” He sat down and started to eat, dismissing me with a wave of his hand.

Could the man be any more pretentious? I counted to ten and compressed my lips together, afraid a nasty comment might slip out between them. As I started toward the door, I spotted two half-filled mimosa glasses sitting on the table on the balcony. I wondered if good old Randy might have had a girl over last night—or perhaps his estranged wife had joined him.

“Are you deaf?” Randolph bellowed. “I want my coffee—now!”

With great effort, I opened the door to the suite and managed to refrain from slamming it behind me. On my way back down the hallway toward the elevator, I grabbed my phone out of my jeans pocket. My fingers flew as I texted Vivian.

Tell Poncho that the jerk said the coffee’s not hot enough. Have a new carafe ready to go when I get back. It’s a wonder no one has killed this guy yet.

Excerpt:

Student Council

At school the next day, I tell my friend Mike that I’m thinking of running

for class secretary.

“You’re so organized,” he says. “Way more than anyone else in our class. You’ll be great.”

I am good with organizing information, but that’s not why I decided to run for secretary. I chose that particular position because no one else is running for it.

When Bev approaches us at our lockers, she disagrees. “I think you should run for class president,” she suggests. “Craig and I were talking about that yesterday.”

“Who’s Craig?” Mike asks.

I glare at Bev. She knows my magical stickers are top secret, even for Mike. Sure, he rode a Pegasus with us when I had my last magical sheet of stickers, but he believed our story about borrowing an animatronic Pegasus from a movie studio. Why is she casually dropping hints about Craig now?

Bev, of course, doesn’t miss a beat and tells Mike that Craig is one of our friends from the neighborhood.

“You have to be careful!” I whisper when Mike heads down the hall. “Next thing,

you’ll be telling him about the fake treasure chest too.”

“Hey! There’s nothing fake about us stickers!”

I spin around to see where the familiar voice is coming from. Bev grins and opens her bag to reveal Craig.

“I stopped by your house to walk with you this morning but you’d already left,” Bev says.“Craig was making a fuss, and I didn’t want your Mom to hear him, so I took him along.”

Craig rolls his eyes. “I was HARDLY making a fuss.”

“Promise you’ll keep quiet and you can stay.”

I open my own bag and Craig hops in. On the way to class, I think about Bev’s comment. To be honest, I did consider throwing my hat in the presidential ring, but Tommy and Caitlyn are already running. Tommy may be a goofy bull-in- a- china- shop who tells terrible jokes, but he’s one of the most popular kids in our grade. Caitlyn’s popular AND smart; I like her too. A few months ago, I barely spoke to any

of my classmates, so running for a position no one else has signed up for is a good way to test the waters and become more involved in school.

Class secretary it is.

When I take my seat, I notice my teacher Ms. Graham’s arm is in a cast; she acts out a story about rollerblading in Santa Monica, slipping on some sand, and breaking her humerus.

“There’s nothing humorous about breaking your humerus,” Tommy calls out. It’s a crazy joke but Tommy gets a laugh anyway.

“Okay—I know school elections are usually in the fall, “Ms. Graham says. “But politics is so important to what’s going on in the world right now, I don’t want to wait that long. She looks over the class. “Who wants to run for student council?”

I look around the room, then slowly raise my hand.

“Martina! What would you like to run for?”

Before I can open my mouth, Craig does a perfect impersonation of me and pipes up,

“President!”

Tommy’s head whips around. So does Caitlyn’s. They’re as shocked as I am.

Ms. Graham seems surprised too. “Martina, that’s great! It’s going to be a fun campaign.”

While she writes my name on the whiteboard, I open my bag and give Craig the evil eye. “You ruin everything!” I whisper.

Craig rolls his buttercream eyes. “Running unopposed is lame. I’m with Bev on this.”

When I look over at Bev, she’s grinning too. Did my best human friend and best pastry friend conspire against me? I’m about to tell Ms. Graham that I actually

meant to say I wanted to run for secretary, when Samantha sticks her hand in the air.

“I’ll run for secretary!” she says.

“Excellent! Though I’m not sure how much of a run it will be. You’re the only one on the ticket!” Ms. Graham jokes.

That could’ve been me, I think to myself. Thanks, Craig!

Ms. Graham studies the list of candidates. “We still need a treasurer! Going once, going twice. . . .”

Now’s my chance. I lift my arm to volunteer, but Scott’s already shouting, “Me! Me!”

“Okay, Scott. You’re on the ballot,” Ms. Graham confirms.

“One question,” Scott begins. “What’s a treasurer?”

“Treasurers are in charge of counting money and budgeting for school activities,” Ms. Graham says.

Scott looks worried. “Can I still be treasurer if I have a C in math?”

“In that case, I’ll run too.” Brittney raises her hand.

There goes my last chance.

Tommy catches up to me on our way out of class. “Good luck,” he says. “You’ll need it.”

So this is what happens when I finally stick my head out of my shell? Why did I think it was a good idea to run for student council? I was obviously NOT thinking.

After class, Bev appoints herself my official campaign manager. “This is going to be great— right, Craig?” she asks her new cupcake friend.

“You said it!” Craig answers.

Worst. Idea. Ever.

I’m sunk.
