Much to my surprise I received an email from my editor letting me know that Audible was producing my book. Susan Larkin is lending her voice talent to bring to life my story. Very heady stuff. I reached out to Susan to see if she needed anything–she didn’t–and then the wait was on for the final product to drop. Well, it dropped! A Heartbeat Away is available at Audible.com now!

I personally found this book hard to get into and at times the plot seemed to drag. Scenes seemed disjointed; like they had just been thrown together. The writing felt forced and it was hard for me to connect to the characters. Not recommended.

The Inn at Ocean’s Edge is an attention-grabbing suspense-filled novel by author Colleen Coble. The book explores many subjects such as family ties, trust, betrayal and, of course, romance. It is well written, nicely paced, and intriguing from beginning to end. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is a murder mystery and suspense lover.

Twisted Innocence by Terri Blackstock gives readers a glimpse into what it is like
to be a single parent, raising a young child, and having to work multiple jobs to make
ends meet. The plot itself is well written and a suspenseful page turner that had me on
the edge of my chair throughout most of the book. It is also a heartwarming story of the
sacrifices that a loving single mother is willing to make to give her daughter the best
chance in life. Yes, even at the expense of her own dreams and plans.
