'The Pretender' $75 Amazon GC and prize basket Giveaway

The Pretender: A Blackguard in Disguise - Book I in The Caselli Family Series by Ta`Mara Hanscom

Set in South Dakota in 1975, where eighteen-year-olds could order 3.2 beer in a bar, and loaded guns were kept under the counter.

Frankie Valli sang "My Eyes Adored You," and American soldiers returning from Vietnam struggled with their new reality.

It's within this tumultuous season of American history that Tillie Caselli meets Noah Hansen, and they are never the same again. Their lives were mysteriously intertwined-and had been for many years-yet they had no idea. 

From the moment they met, Tillie and Noah wanted to spend the rest of their lives together, but a deliberate omission will keep them apart---and that same omission will be responsible for the escape of a murderer, and a bride's deception.

Born and raised in South Dakota, Ta`Mara loves to write about the Great Plains and the beauty and people of Italia. While her husband and children manage their two pizza ristorante, Ta`Mara works full time on The Caselli Family Series, and ministers to women. It is Ta`Mara s prayer that as the readers explore the truths in these volumes, they will come away with a new perspective on love, forgiveness, obedience, and God's plan for marriage

Cassandra's review-  Hurt, Pain, times of emotional distress as well as feelings that most people never need to feel come out in this book.  The author chose a story that brings sadness and sorrow to a reader.  While the writing is powerful and the settings are described perfectly, I feel that unless you as a reader want to put down a book and spend the rest of the day or night thinking about the topics included, this may not be a good fit for you.   The writing style chosen invites you to become a part of this story like a fly on the wall.  It opens a window for you to peer into and may not go well with some more religious people. 

Med School Uncensored by Richard Beddingfield MD Review



Med School Uncensored:

The Insider's Guide to Surviving Admissions, Exams, Residency, and Sleepless Nights in the Call Room

by Richard Beddingfield MD

An entertaining insider's guide to the good, the bad, and the ugly of med school--with everything pre-med and med students need to know, from day one, to maximize opportunities and avoid mistakes.

Cardiothoracic anesthesiologist and recent med school grad Dr. Richard Beddingfield serves as an unofficial older brother for pre-med and incoming med students--dishing on all the stuff he would've wanted to know from the beginning in order to make the most of med school's opportunities, while staying sane through the gauntlets of applying to and succeeding at med school, residency, fellowship, and starting work as a new physician.

With advice from additional recent Ivy League med school grads and top-tier hospital residents, this all-in-one guide is a must-have for everyone who dreams of becoming a doctor.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  I think this book is excellent because it teaches, gives and presents in a steady as well as smooth way.  The if you are in or thinking about going into Med school this is a great tool to help and guide you.

Crated with Love Subscription Box Review


In 2014 Tyler and Michelle Turk founded the subscription box service Crated with Love.

The mission at Crated with Love is to keep the best part of your relationship alive and thriving through love and laughter with creative, simple date ideas.

Many other subscription boxes focus on the items within.  These are a little different. Every item in each box has a designated purpose in building skills in your relationship.  They do not source items based on price or perceived value, but rather on how well they connect with their theme and activities. If you are looking to get a bunch of “things”, Crated with Love may not be the best fit. However, if you are looking for specialized date night activities focused on improving your relationship skills as a couple, they are there for you! 
BET ON MY LOVE
$24.99


WHAT DO I GET IN EACH BOX?

I can’t tell you. Why? Part of the recipe for a great date is a little mystery and spontaneity. The surprise activities will help you connect more intimately with your partner. What I CAN tell you is that you will have a fantastic time if you put forth the effort. Each box has a specific theme and with that theme comes 3-4 date activities, games, or projects, all centered around romance and laughter, two crucial ingredients to a healthy relationship.

I received complimentary product.

Cassandra's Review-  I had mixed feelings about the boxes I received, while I do understand that they are created for the pourpose of helping people who would not otherwise be able to start up a session like this, I still feel that with some creative thinking you could replicate this stuff at home. The bottom line for me with this is basically it depends on why and who you gift this box to that will make all the difference.  

I am not going to say that these are not thoughtfully packed or that they are not going to help to bring a couple closer.   I think that if there is some kind of lacking in a relationship, the thought starters and goals may really be appreciated.  

You will need to have a partner, you will also need to be ready for anything, because at some point over sharing might even lead to other things both good and bad.  There has to be a great effort and time spent on these boxes to really get the full effect of the worth they offer.  

While these might have not been the perfect fit for me, I still feel they are worth sharing about and could benefit my readers. 


Good Night Tales by C.S. Fritz Review

34593657

Good Night Tales: A Family Treasury of Read-Aloud Stories
by C.S. Fritz

Good Night Tales leads your children through a vivid, beautiful, and imaginative adventure through Scriptural truths. This collection of Scripture-based stories brings a forest to life through animal kings, trolls, plum-loving giants, and fiddle-playing crickets. Stories include reimaginings of Israel asking for a new king, parables about searching for the kingdom of God, and Psalm 23

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's review-  The book is written for people with a strong imagination, it is perfect for young ones and with the added illustrations creates a group of really cute stories.  It is faith based, but not preachy although you do get the meanings if not subtly.  I enjoyed not only reading it outloud to my whole family, but also sharing this one with friends.

A beautiful gift or a fun treat for yourself, Coloring Christmas Devotions will help you focus your heart on the true meaning of Christmas.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's review- A great book of unique and beautiful Christmas illustrations, that any age will enjoy coloring and the pages are thick enough to use marker or you can even tear them out, if you do not mind destruction of the book.   It is compact enough to fit in a bag for on the go, so the kids will have something fun or you can destress during the holiday.

Cassandra's review- An easy to read children's book, or a book that is easy for you to read to your child.  It is simple enough to read in a sitting or a few pages a night before bed.   I think the author shares a good message along with a fantastic read for younger children, but really any age would benefit from the meaning.

Reading People by Anne Bogel Review



Reading People: How Seeing the World through the Lens of Personality Changes Everything
by Anne Bogel

If the viral Buzzfeed-style personality quizzes are any indication, we are collectively obsessed with the idea of defining and knowing ourselves and our unique place in the world. But what we're finding is this: knowing which Harry Potter character you are is easy, but actually knowing yourself isn't as simple as just checking a few boxes on an online quiz.

For readers who long to dig deeper into what makes them uniquely them (and why that matters), popular blogger Anne Bogel has done the hard part--collecting, exploring, and explaining the most popular personality frameworks, such as Myers-Briggs, StrengthsFinder, Enneagram, and others.

She explains to readers the life-changing insights that can be gained from each and shares specific, practical real-life applications across all facets of life, including love and marriage, productivity, parenting, the workplace, and spiritual life. In her friendly, relatable style, Bogel shares engaging personal stories that show firsthand how understanding personality can revolutionize the way we live, love, work, and pray.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's review-  I think of this author as someone who will tell it like it is and clearly line it out for you.  I feel her book is sincere, real and very on point.  The research must have been really extensive  to be able to key in so precisely.   I actually wanted to learn more about this author and check out her blog etc, because of the writing style and voice that she puts forth.  This book when used correctly can be a life changer.


A Place Called Heaven by Dr. Robert Jeffress Review



A Place Called Heaven: 10 Surprising Truths about Your Eternal Home
by Dr. Robert Jeffress

If any of us learned we were going to move to a foreign country, we'd do everything we could to learn about that place so that we'd be prepared when moving day arrived. As Christians, we know some day we will leave our familiar country and be united with God in heaven. And yet many of us know very little about this place called heaven.

In this enlightening book, bestselling author Dr. Robert Jeffress opens the Scriptures to unpack ten surprising truths about heaven and explain who we will see there and how we can prepare to go there someday. Perfect for believers or skeptics who are curious about heaven.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's review-  I am a super open minded person especially when is come to religion, because I love to find out everyone's views and how they came to that conclusion.  While I am not sure if this book is going to be accurate, I can tell you it  is faith based and depending on your religion it will either be really good or kind of out there.

Money Problems, Marriage Solutions by Chuck Bentley Review



Money Problems, Marriage Solutions: 7 Keys to Aligning Your Finances and Uniting Your Hearts 
by Chuck Bentley

Arguments about money are by far the top predictor of divorce, but there is more to money problems than not sticking to the budget.

Chuck and Ann Bentley reveal the underlying issues of financial and relational discord—and show how it robs couples of joy, intimacy, and marital satisfaction. In Money Problems, Marriage Solutions, Crown Financial Ministries CEO Chuck Bentley and his wife Ann present seven keys to peace in marriage and helps couples unite and conquer to resolve financial issues together.

 Through real-life stories, a solid foundation from Scripture, and practical steps for application, this book gives a plan for getting back on the same team.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  As a single mom, I know all too well about financial problems and how it affects me personally.  The stress and constant worry about getting everything provided for and getting some of the older kids into college especially on a single income.

Not everyone has the luxury of sharing this burden with a spouse, so this book was kind of off putting because it seemed like you could only achieve this goal if you have a partner.  I did like the included faith based aspects and if you are married this may really be a great book to help relieve some of the stress.  It is not a miracle cure for debt and can not actually help you to make money, but it does give you clarity and peace of mind.

The Wondrous World of Violet Barnaby $100 Amazon GC or Paypal Cash Giveaway



The Wondrous World of Violet Barnaby Violet Barnaby searches for the joy in life after losing her mother in this sweet and funny follow-up to The Charming Life of Izzy Malone. Violet Barnaby is a having a blue Christmas. She’s still grieving the loss of her mother, and to make things worse, her dad has just married Melanie Harmer, a.k.a. the meanest teacher at Dandelion Hollow Middle School.

But on the day Violet and her dad are packing up and moving into the new house they’ll share with Melanie and Melanie’s two children, Violet finds a letter her mother wrote to her before she died, asking Violet to enjoy Christmas, along with a Christmas Wish List—things her mom wants her to do during the holiday season. On the list are exactly the kinds of things Violet doesn’t want to do this year, like Be Someone’s Secret Santa; Give Someone the Gift of Your Time: Volunteer; and Bake Christmas Cookies.

 Violet shows the letter to her friend Izzy’s Aunt Mildred, who calls a meeting of the Charm Girls, a club Izzy and Violet belong to along with their friends, Daisy and Sophia. Aunt Mildred decides she will give them each a charm to put on their bracelet if they do all of the tasks on the Christmas Wish List, which Violet is not too happy about. She’d rather forget about the list completely, but feels compelled to honor her mother’s wishes. And when Izzy’s crush confides a big secret to Violet, Violet feels like she is stuck between her best friend and the boy who she just might have a crush on, too…   Praise for The Wondrous World of Violet Barnaby "[an] emotionally perceptive novel of grief and recovery." - Kirkus You'll fall in love with Violet and love every minute of living in her wondrous world! - Stephanie Faris
