Great Things Are Still Happening!

Thankfully, artists are still creating their art to help keep us sane in these trying times. Music, movies, tv shows, video games, funny/thought-provoking/inspirational memes entertain us for hours without end while we’re confined to our homes. And for book-lovers, new novels are being published every single day! Which brings me to the re-introduction of An Unconventional Family by Roberta Bombonato and the sequel An Unbreakable Family! Now available on Amazon! Both are part of The Family Tree series. Book 3 will be available in Spring 2021.

An Unconventional Family – Book 1

Originally published in 2009, the author wanted to edit and update the story and it was my pleasure to help!
The Family Tree series Book One

Marvin Costa, alias Azrael, has had vengeance on the brain for nearly two decades. Carmen Moreno has invested one of those decades in a relationship with him that often seems one sided. Keiko Akashimi joins the two when her family became victims of a mob hit in which she barely escaped with her life.

What do they all have in common? Fate has thrown them together against all odds and after an epic, action packed adventure filled with bloodshed and heartache they finally become: AN UNCONVENTIONAL FAMILY

An Unbreakable Family – Book 2

An Unbreakable Family by Roberta Bombonato

Marvin and Carmen’s marriage is fantastic. Giovanni, their son, is a lively boy who can hold his own against bullies. Akemi, their adopted daughter, is 18 and struggling to find herself. The past affects the present and the future in a big way.

How can she move forward without knowing the whole truth and trust the parents she has come to love? Digging for answers alerts the other side and forces Marvin to come out of retirement. 

Uniting against domestic terrorists might be better than therapy for: AN UNBREAKABLE FAMILY


Amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, farmers are still farming, food manufacturers are still manufacturing all of our favorite comfort foods, truckers are still trucking it to the stores, supermarkets are still stocking their shelves, and restaurants are still cooking and serving everything we love. Carpenters are still building, plumbers still plumbing, electricians still wiring, etc. But many people have been furloughed or laid off. In the midst of so much pain and sorrow, I have never seen so many loving, kind, generous human beings coming together to help each other get through this scourge.

If you need help, reach out! If you can be of help, reach out! God bless you and keep you all safe, healthy, and happy in this crazy world turned upside down.

Peace & love,

Lis

Review: Ladybugs and Fireflies by Cheryl Alldredge

Ladybugs and FirefliesLadybugs and Fireflies by Cheryl Alldredge

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Feisty fraud investigator Callie Roberts isn’t looking for a knight in shining armor to rescue her. The last thing she needs is to be distracted by a man, especially when he’s the powerful New York attorney in town to represent the man her dream client has hired her to investigate. With a past full of heartache, will Callie ever allow herself to believe happily-ever-after really can come true?

I loved Taylor and Callie! And the ending was so cool! I didn’t see that coming. 🙂 There were a few minor typos and Taylor said a couple of things that I thought were a little un-alpha male, but none of that detracted from this great read. Once I started this short novel, I couldn’t put it down. The author did a superb job of describing the town and people, creating a perfect movie in my mind. I’d definitely recommend Ladybugs and Fireflies to others.
