The Associates Home Loan of Florida Feature

While I have never had the need for a loan experience first hand, I do know that many people will at some point need them, or advice.  Sometimes life just throws things your way and we all know that money is tight for most people.  However not many people know about easier solutions to help get out of a tight bind or maybe just need a little advice or lift up tp get to the next level in their life.  So with the help of a professional that actually wants to share time with your experience and help you out and make things less of a burden things might get back on track.  


I would like to introduce The Associates Home Loan of Florida, Inc. Their team is committed to providing their clients with the highest quality services available in Florida.

Their outstanding professionals will work with you one on one to ensure that you get the loan solution that is tailored specifically to meet your needs. Whether you are purchasing your dream home, purchasing an investment property, refinancing an outstanding loan, or consolidating debt, their highly experienced team of mortgage advisors can help you no matter what your needs are.

 Their ultimate goal is to create lasting relationships with each of their clients so that they may continue providing excellent service for many years to come. Unlike many of the larger nationwide mortgage companies that are out there, all your information will be kept secure and private.

Their name is trusted throughout the state of Florida. To speak directly with a mortgage advisor simply give them a call at  813-328-3025 anytime or feel free to utilize any of the interactive tools offered throughout the site.

I found several loan options on the site that might fit your needs for example the hard money loan or self employed loans which might be a little harder to understand might be a little less hassle if you can discuss them and other options with the staff.

The Spiritual Gifts Handbook by Randy Clark Review

35191337
The Spiritual Gifts Handbook: Using Your Gifts to Build the Kingdom
by Randy Clark

Foundational Teaching from a Charismatic Healing Minister and a Catholic Scholar

International healing minister Randy Clark teams up with Mary Healy, a respected Catholic scholar, to show not only that the gifts of the Spirit still exist today, but that they are not optional; they are the necessary tools God has given for both building his Church and spreading the Gospel.

With wisdom and practical insight, Clark and Healy walk you through biblical texts, dispel misconceptions, and show that there is an endless variety of gifts. They also show how the gifts are not just for a select few, but distributed freely by the Holy Spirit among believers. After laying this foundation, the authors reveal how you can activate the gifts in your own life and use them to benefit others. In this hurting world, you can give people more than just a message--you can help usher them into an encounter with God.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review -  The book is about God and believing in the spirit, so right off the bat if your not a believer of have no faith, this is not going to be your bag.  However it can possibly invite you to start believing.  It can also teach you alot, but the way you feel after reading will depend on the need to connect and know God.

CosyKiller Subscription box Review

Love Murder Mysteries? Try the Cosy Killer Subscription box!
Once a month you will receive a subscription box in the post filled with cryptic clues and an enticing storyline to keep you guessing.
This is what I received in Box 1.

CosyKiller is an annual murder mystery subscription box delivered directly to your door. Each box is packed with vintage memorabilia, keepsakes and intrigue.  Although you can pay as you go – we recommend you start with box 1!  If you buy the annual subscription you can start anytime and you will always receive box 1 as your first box.

Each story lasts a year.  This means each box only contains part of the puzzle.  You’ll need a full year to solve the case.

I received complimentary product.

Cassandra's review- I knew that I would be reviewing a box, but I had no idea about anything that would be arriving.   Yesterday I was on the phone and the mail came. I go out can check it come back and notice a box, which had the label on it from an inheritance recovery firm.   I was still on the phone talking to one of my older kids and I am like trying to figure out what in the world I inherited.

 I am like wow finally I am going to be able to help my kids and family or maybe like a rich uncle was finding me.   Now at this point I pull out the letter and while reading it outloud, I am like wait a minute I bet this like the spammer emails from the prince of wherever and immediately I deflated.  I took out the book, which was wrapped up and then I saw the post card alerting me this was the CosyKiller box 1 mystery.  Now it all made sense and really if your not expecting this to come, like say it was gifted to someone there may be a moment when they actually believe they finally got a break.

  So I open the package and there is a new journal made to look old, but the pages are like laminated and then burned in some way that created a black soot that got all over my hands, so not sure if that's the way to go as obviously by this point I knew it was a prop anyway and it just made the experience feel messy.   I actually did not even bother to read it, because it is so messy to say it politely.

I started my research of course the first thing I look for is the price of this box, well there is no mystery as to its super high cost and being a subscription, the only way to find out the answer is to buy it. One full year is almost 400.00 and seriously I could not even afford to care who did what for the that price.

There are people out there that can seriously afford to take on this mystery, but do not be super excited to get the items, while I did not receive any more boxes, in my opinion if they arrive in this condition, I would not be impressed. 

Achilles knife Review

There is a team from Germany who has just completely reinvented the chef knife.
Sternsteiger Solingen
Designed to be different, Achilles are a full-line of chef knives that make cutting chores safer, easier and more efficient. How'd they do it? With a precision unibody design, unique balance hole and an ergonomic handle shape that gives you unprecedented control (wet or dry). 
Sternsteiger Achilles
Now you can cut and prepare food with confidence just like the pros! Plus all Achilles knives are given a unique Nano-Coated edge so they stay wicked sharp even under heavy use.

The award winning Achilles knives are available individually or in complete sets. They recently launched on Kickstarter and received an amazing response from investors, professional chefs and foodies all over the world.
I received complimentary product.

Cassandra's Review-  I LOVE this knife.  I can feel like an amazing chef while using this beautifully crafted blade.  The handle is sleek and classy and I enjoy the weight as it is not super heavy, but offers a good slice.  It is easy to hand clean and dry, just be careful because this is sharp.  I would review more from this brand anytime.

Hurricane Season By Lauren K Denton Review

Hurricane Season
A Southern Novel of Two Sisters and the Storms They Must Weather
By Lauren K. Denton
39085216
Betsy and Ty Franklin, owners of Franklin Dairy Farm in southern Alabama, have decided to put life’s disappointments behind them. At least in theory. Ty manages their herd of dairy cows, while Betsy busies herself with the farm’s day-to-day operations and tries to forget the longing for motherhood set deep in her heart. But when Betsy’s free-spirited younger sister Jenna drops her young daughters off at the farm to attend a two-week art retreat in Florida, Betsy’s carefully constructed wall of self-protection begins to crumble.

As those two weeks stretch much farther into the hot Alabama summer, Betsy and Ty learn to navigate the new additions in their world and revel in a home that’s suddenly filled with the sound of laughter and life. Meanwhile, record heat promises to usher in the most active hurricane season in decades.

Four hundred miles away, Jenna is fighting her own battles. She’d once been free to travel and pursue a career in photography, but all that changed with the appearance of two pink lines on a plastic stick and a boyfriend who hit the road. At Halcyon art retreat, she finally has the time and energy to focus on her photography. As the summer continues, she wonders how her rediscovered passion can fit in with the life she’s made back home with her two children.

When Hurricane Ingrid aims her steady eye at the Alabama coast, Jenna must make a decision that could affect both her and her children’s futures, and Betsy and Ty find themselves protecting their beloved farm as well as their own hearts.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  If you want drama unfolding at a snail's pace this is going to be a great book.  It is laden with a story or a few stories in a way that made me want to not finish it.  I just think that there is too much going on and not in any productive way.  Kind of like adding a bunch of really good thoughts to a story that was meant to possibly end earlier or like the author struggled to fill pages.

Samantha St. Claire $50 Amazon or Paypal Cash Giveaway

  Comes the Winter by Samantha St. Claire Avalanches, isolation and snow blindness were stark realities for those daring to remain in Idaho’s Sawtooth Range through the harsh winter months. For city dweller, Lena Sommer, the warnings seemed exaggerated. In the fall of 1886, Lena leaves behind a life fraught with disappointments and loss only to arrive in Sawtooth City and find the man she’d pledged to marry has been killed. To return east is unthinkable; to stay is ill-advised, but she resolves to remain and manage the man’s lodging house despite the warnings. More than her stubborn nature influences her decision. From her first glimpse of this mountain valley, she falls captive to its wild beauty. Feeling she has at last found a hearth to call her own, she eagerly puts down roots. Sharing her love of literature with her lodgers before a warming fire, she builds a family of lonesome souls, where dreams awaken. However, one man stands apart, disturbing her peace with ominous warnings to leave before winter comes. Evan Hartmann knows from personal loss that winter snows bring to these mountains both unimaginable beauty and death. He is also a man conflicted, because as much as he’d like for Lena to leave the mountains, his heart longs for her to stay.

A centuries-old French recipe with over three hundred layers of dough and 100% butter, make each bite of the signature Petite Palmiers irresistibly flaky.  It’s an enticing and unique cookie that’s even better with ice cream, whip cream, or just a touch of honey.

Classic Sketchbook Cats by Patricia J. Wynne Review

Classic Sketchbook: Cats
Classic Sketchbook: Cats by Patricia J. Wynne
Secrets of Observational Drawing
Author: Patricia J. Wynne

Classic Sketchbook: Cats shows how it's done by showing museum-quality works, then coaching you to try the techniques with the help an expert's suggestions.

Whether scribbling out a quick sketch with minimal detail, or making a finished portrait where every silky hair and polished whisker stands out, the best cat artists can capture the very essence of feline-ness. How do they do it?

Firsthand observation of cats will tell you a lot about the way they sit, yawn, tweak their tails, and curl up to sleep, but it won't tell you how to get those things down on paper.

Classic Sketchbook: Cats is the second in a series of instructional books that began with Classic Sketchbook: Botanicals. The series shows how to draw your subjects by looking at the details of museum-quality works, then coaching you through the techniques with the help an expert's suggestions. In this case the expert is Patricia Wynne, a noted illustrator with a specialty in animals.

Wynne will guide you through fur, paws, and eyes, as well as cats sleeping, playing, or pouncing. Her unique instructions places a close-up of a drawing or painting by a noted artist like Gauguin, Chardin, Gwen John, and Theodore Steinlen on the left side of the page. And on the right side of the page Patricia Wynne coaches you with detailed, step-by-step drawings, that illuminate the process.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's review-  I love cats,  my family and I are also into art and this book is perfect for us.  The artwork is not super colorful, but very nice to study and the tips are short, but that makes them easier to focus on.  I think with a good amount of practice the instructional images could be created. 

My Sisters Intended $50 Amazon or Paypal Cash Giveaway

 
  My Sister's Intended by Rachael Anderson For as long as Prudence can remember, it has been understood that her sister will one day wed the eldest son of their nearest neighbor. Such an alliance will benefit both families and bring a great deal of joy to all parents involved. Unfortunately, Prudence has never been able to feel as joyful. She believes her sister is mad to consider marrying a man she hardly knows, even if he will one day make her a countess. Titles and wealth shouldn't factor into matters of the heart, and as an aspiring romance novelist, Prudence cannot fathom how anyone could even think of settling for less than love. She certainly wouldn’t, and she doesn't want her sister to either. Unable to stand by and do nothing, Prudence sets out to help the awkward couple discover the best in each other with the hope that they will eventually find love. What she neglected to foresee, however, was the possibility that she might fall in love with Lord Knave herself.

Amira Can Catch, New Kid in School
by Kevin Christofora

A New Kid in School is the fourth in a series of books by The Hometown All Stars for children ages three to seven. Amira, the new kid in school lands in a new hometown after leaving her home country of Syria over a year ago. She is shy and a looks a little scared as the teacher introduces her to class. Amira is rapidly welcomed by Nick and the rest of the All Star team.

 She adapts quickly to their silly ways. With a little help on Amira's spelling and math at school, Amira's mom might be more likely to let her play baseball with the team after school. Her mom was very strict because she had a lot of school days to make up after they were forced out of their old home. The Hometown All Stars learn all about hotdogs, maps, fingers up, fingers down, train tunnels, Willie Mays, #24 and how to catch 3 different types of pop fly balls. True to real life, you have to learn how to hit, run, throw and catch before you play a real game of baseball.

Coach ends practice with a little teaser and all the fun that is ahead of them at the next practice titled Pizza Pie Day! Batter up for a great tale - both fact and fantasy - that celebrate the spirit of our national pastime.

Cassandra's review- A Bible is a tough book to review, I mean the cover is beautiful and the text is easy to look at.  The concept is a faith based book filled with arguably the most wonderful stories of all time.   I think the outlook depends on the person reading it and how strong the faith is of the person.  You do not have to believe to see the work that is inside the chapters, but it may be really hard to open to a different time realm and moment that sometimes is super complex to register in the mind.

Be Food Safe this EASTER with the help of .@STOPfoodillness TIPS

Thanks to Stop Foodborne Illness for the advice:

Eggs are a symbol of new life. Enjoy them but be aware of the risks they carry.
If not handled smartly, eggs can cause food poisoning because salmonella is a common bacteria found in uncooked, unbroken eggs. Salmonella can be present on both the outside and the inside of eggs.

Stop Foodborne Illness, the national advocacy group that educates people on being food safe has some good advice on how to keep your holiday “eggstravaganza” pathogen-free.

The bad news is … some things you should know about salmonella poisoning:

Typical symptoms are nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, cramps, and fever.
Symptoms usually last, at least, a couple of days.
Susceptability and severity is generally associated with babies, and young children, the elderly, pregnant women, and others with compromised immune systems. However, anyone can get ill from salmonella.
Severe cases can be life-threatening.

The good news is that there are safe ways to handle and prepare eggs! If you follow these guidelines from Stop Foodborne Illness, you and yours will be much more likely to have a fun and safe holiday!


Always choose clean and fresh eggs. When purchasing eggs, open the carton and make sure they’re clean, and intact. Handle with care: Chickens can harbor Salmonella without showing any signs of being sick, so all unpasteurized eggs -- even those that are fresh, organic, or unbroken -- can contain Salmonella. Buying in-shell pasteurized eggs reduces that risk.

Wash your hands thoroughly. Everybody, including children, must wash their hands with soap and water before and after handling eggs – which includes prepping, cooking, cooling, dyeing, hiding and hunting them.

Be smart with Easter eggs. Decorating eggs for the holiday is a joy, but do it safely by using only food-safe dyes. Use care when hiding eggs outside or in.

The total time for hiding and hunting eggs should not exceed 2 hours. Avoid areas where eggs would come in contact with pets, wild animals, birds, or lawn chemicals. Eating eggs that have been on the ground is not recommended. Don’t hide cracked eggs because bacteria could contaminate the inside.

 Cracked eggs should never be used. A good alternative is to use plastic Easter eggs for the hunt, and save the real eggs for eating.


Refrigerate, refrigerate, refrigerate - your eggs at 40°F or below. Safely storing and cooking your eggs before consumption is important. When storing eggs make sure they go inside the fridge, not the fridge door. Once hard-cooked, refrigerated eggs can be stored for up to one week. Eggs can be out of refrigeration for 2 hours (when it’s under 90°F) and still be safe to eat. Colored eggs being used as decoration (for several hours or days) should not be eaten. Even though eggs will show signs of spoilage (taste, smell, appearance) when they’re past the “best by” date, we don’t recommend using this as an indicator of an egg’s safeness – mainly because eggs that harbor Salmonella taste, smell, and appear exactly the same as “normal” eggs.
 Stop Foodborne Illness
Avoid cross-contamination and cook eggs thoroughly
Using soap and water, wash your hands and all surfaces that may have had contact with raw eggs. This includes countertops, pots and pans, utensils and dishes.
Don’t let in-shell eggs, raw whites or yolks cross contaminate foods that will be eaten raw.
Eggs should be cooked until the egg white and yolk are firm. A lightly cooked egg with a runny yolk increases your chance of pathogenic contamination. If a recipe calls for lightly cooked eggs, we recommend using pasteurized egg products.
Dishes with eggs in the recipe must be cooked to a safe internal temperature of 160°F (71°C)
Eggs should be eaten or refrigerated within 2 hours after cooking.
Do not eat eggs that have been left at room temperature for more than 2 hours.

Know the safest way to boil eggs
According to Deirdre Schlunegger, Chief Executive Officer of Stop Foodborne Illness, when cooking hard-boiled eggs, place a single layer of eggs in a saucepan. Cover the eggs with at least one inch of water. When the water is at a full boil, remove the pan from the heat source and let the eggs stay in the water for between 12-18 minutes, depending on the size of the eggs. After the eggs have set for the appropriate amount of time, run cold water over them. When the eggs are cooled enough to handle, put them in the refrigerator.

If you and your loved ones celebrate the holidays at a restaurant, and the dish calls for lightly cooked eggs—as some sauces do—ask your server if the dish can be prepared using pasteurized eggs, or liquid egg products, when possible.




Some other Spring holiday food safety tips

Easter Ham: If your Easter ham is prepared with a fresh, uncooked ham, be sure to cook it to an internal temperature of at least 145°F (63°C) and allow the ham to rest for a few minutes before serving. Always avoid cross-contamination from countertops, knives, dishes and pots and pans. Do not let the uncooked ham come into contact with foods you will eat raw. 

If you purchase a pre-cooked Easter ham, which can be served cold or heated, be sure to re-heat leftovers to at least 140°F before serving.

Beef brisket: This is a popular Passover dish that nearly everyone enjoys if it is prepared well. This cut of meat needs to be cooked for a long time because it is less tender. Preferably, set the oven temperature to 350°F and no lower than 325°F. Place the brisket fat-side up. The brisket should be almost covered with water and the cooking pan should be lidded. Brisket should be cooked for about one hour per pound of meat to a safe temperature of 145°F (63°C). Avoid cross-contamination from the uncooked meat.

Lamb: Lamb is another popular dish for Easter and Passover. Remember that lamb should be cooked to an internal temperature of at least 145°F. Let it rest a few minutes before serving. As always, avoid cross-contamination with uncooked meat and juices.

Be smart with leftovers, too
Making a little extra is almost a given at holiday time, as is taking home goody bags. Just remember to keep food safety in mind. Here are some tips for handling leftovers:
Make an educated guess as to how much food you will need on the table, then refrigerate the leftovers.
Prepared foods should not sit at room temperature for more than two hours.
Put leftovers in air-tight containers for travel.
For an extra-nice touch, purchase insulated bags and ice so that leftovers can stay ice-cold during your guests’ long drive home.
Remind your guests to put the goodies in the refrigerator as soon as they get home.

Going Solo: Hope and Healing for the Single Mom or Dad by Robert Beeson Review

35782403
Going Solo: Hope and Healing for the Single Mom or Dad
by Robert Beeson

As parents face the difficult reality of a broken home, a sense of being completely overwhelmed can shut down the perspective they need to find restoration. Parents need to know that they can choose to define this season of their lives, instead of becoming defined by circumstances. They can deliberately look toward God and come to a deeper understanding of His true nature, power, and intimate care.

As this former Christian music industry executive shares his story of divorce, his seven years as a single father, and his transition to a second marriage and a blended family, he also offers readers some hard-learned lessons and insights on being an effective, empathetic, and empowered single parent, answering crucial questions such as:

How do I find peace when everything around me is chaos?
How do I manage meeting needs when I have nothing to give?
How and where do I begin again?

The author addresses the fears and exhaustion of single parenting, while revealing the keys to gaining strength and courage for each day. He also shares how he found his "solo" relationship with his heavenly Father through his "solo" parenting season.

Readers will learn five helpful habits and practical healing principles they can immediately apply in this season of life.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's review Q&A-

- What did you like about the book and why?  It is more advising the reader through personal struggle, then actually pushing the reader to think a certain way.  I enjoy the option to take away from the moments instead of feeling transformed into the passages included. 

- What did you not like about the book and why?  There were a lot of references to passages that I felt could be used in any way, but it is not a dislike I just felt like I would be in the middle of a story and then want to transform into a bible study moment. 

- What did you learn? The author gave fresh, pure and honest thoughts, incorporated that with biblical reference and fact to make a really good book. 

- To whom would you recommend this book and why?  A parent or someone that has a need to focus on the family in a spiritual way. 

Ready or Not Leaning into Life in Our Twenties by Drew Moser Review

Ready or Not: Leaning into Life in Our Twenties
by Drew Moser

Discerning a calling is a messy undertaking. You are already involved in many good things now, even as you are being called to many good things in your future. The good life―good work, good relationships, good citizenship, good faith―is to be enjoyed now and pursued on every horizon. We are living out the Kingdom of God even as we seek it.

Ready or Not is a much-needed resource for young people on exploring the complexity of vocation in empowering, not prescriptive, ways. After exploring four foundational questions for emerging adulthood―Who is God? Who am I? How have I been shaped? What are my contexts?―you will work through interactive chapters covering the contours of adulthood, including: spirituality, family, community, and work.

Explore the full depths of your twenties with bravery and vulnerability! With insight into life skills, personal growth, and spirituality, Ready or Not will set you on a faithful trajectory for a good and meaningful life.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's review Q&A-

- What did you like about the book and why?  It has meaningful and important life stops that will give the reader a good reflection experience. 

- What did you not like about the book and why? It is geared to focus on a certain age group and will not be as beneficial if you are older.  Of course you can change the wording to suit your needs, but then it would be a different book style. 

- What did you learn?  I think the takeaway for me with this book is that there is a major point in life where you can find personal growth, but at any point you can build on that experience. 

- To whom would you recommend this book and why? I would put this group with the 20 something age range so they can enjoy and become more interested in themselves .

Bountiful Blessings by Susie Larson Review

Bountiful Blessings: A Creative Devotional Experience
by Susie Larson, Carolyn Williams (Illustrations)

Rest in God's Blessings as You Color

This beautiful coloring book is for readers who want to unwind with a reminder of God's love and purpose for them. We often live our lives worried about to-do lists and responsibilities, forgetting how God feels about us and who we are in him. Because of this struggle, author Susie Larson began posting nightly blessings on Facebook to encourage her fans and friends, and since then, thousands have responded and forwarded the blessings along to others.

The lefthand pages of this book contain a blessing packed with biblical promises as well as a related Scripture to point you back to God's timeless truth. The righthand pages contain beautiful, intricate illustrations for you to color that bring God's wonders into focus.

Read, rest, and create as you soak in the wonder of God's love for you.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's review-  A shorter book with excellent coloring pages that you can either share with your kids while you read or take time to color yourself as you immerse thoughts, prayers and solid moments with God.   The outcome will depend on your faith and coloring skills, but overall this is a great gift for anyone who likes to create and take time to inspire themselves. 

936 Pennies by Eryn Lynum Review

35086274
936 Pennies: Discovering the Joy of Intentional Parenting
by Eryn Lynum

Make the Most of Your Time with Your Children

On the day of their baby dedication, Eryn and her husband were given a jar of 936 pennies. The jar contained a penny for every week they would raise their child until graduation, and they were instructed to remove one penny each Sunday as a reminder, placing it into another jar as an investment.

At some point every parent realizes time is moving swiftly, and they ask themselves, How am I investing in my child? Through personal stories and biblical examples, 936 Pennies will help you discover how to capture time and use it to its fullest potential, replacing guilt and regrets with freedom. Meanwhile, your kids will see how simple choices, like putting the cell phone down and going on a family hike, will make all the difference. Together you will stretch time and make it richer.

Craft a family legacy in tune with God's heartbeat as you capture a new vision for your children and learn the best ways to spend your pennies.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's review- A sweet journey and gift for anyone to enjoy.  I think the author shared an opened and moments with the reader in a connected and spiritual way.   I think new parents would benefit from reading this and also if you have a strong faith, this will be a blessing. 

A Mix of Spring Reads for Adults with Reviews

The following books are for adults and not children.  
35174370
All the F*cks I Cannot Give (fiction, humor, adventure, romance) – When mild mannered yet high performing marketing consultant, Kelly Carson, is unceremoniously fired over the phone by his pretentious boss just weeks before Christmas, it becomes the catalyst for much needed life changes. 
Falling under the unexpected mentorship of an unbalanced Hollywood actress currently escaping her own career problems, Kelly follows Terri on a last-minute trip to Hawaii, putting into motion a series of hilarious events and misfortunes that teach Kelly how to let loose, accept the fact that he has a girl’s name, what to do when you mistakenly eat an entire bag of edibles during a plane ride, and, ultimately, how to learn when to no give a f*ck. This book will have you laughing from the first page and rooting for Kelly until the very end. 

Cassandra's review- Vulgar, out of the box and super extreme is the lengths this author goes to in order to put forth what he believes to be humorous moments.  Depending on the readers this could be funny or plain stupid.  

33136369
Winning Streak (inspirational fiction, sports, romance) – Using sport as a backdrop, WINNING STREAK is the story of how three lives intersect and how each comes to learn critical lessons in order to heal from the pain of loss in their lives. 

A pro golfer about to accomplish a feat not seen in over 80 years walks away from it all and retreats to his hometown after the sudden death of his father. A daughter, tasked with reinventing her father’s magazine, must overcome her own past hometown to fulfill his wife’s dying wish only to realize there’s far more to the story than he realized … Mitch Albom meets Nicholas Sparks as readers are taken on an emotional journey full of laughter and tear.

Cassandra's review- Like Golf?  I hope so because this book will drag you into it while pushing out a story  that is mixed up in a good paced way.
31868612

Uncorking A Murder (fiction, mystery, detective, crime) A retired detective short on time is looking to right a wrong in this "Serial meets Gone Girl" thriller. The Uncorking a Murder podcast took the nation by storm. Farrah Graham, the creator and host, struck a nerve with listeners through a ten-episode serial that combined investigative journalism, old fashioned radio drama, and compelling storytelling. The public, not to mention Farrah’s advertisers, are hungry for season two!

 While Farrah and her partner Melody struggle to agree on a topic for the second season of Uncorking a Murder, their intern takes a call from a retired detective in Ft. Lauderdale pitching his request that the next season focus on a case he was involved with five years earlier. Curious to hear why a retired detective is driven to have a conviction overturned, Farrah follows her curiosity down to Ft. Lauderdale where she uncovers a conspiracy involving a narcissistic CEO and a US Senator willing to do anything to protect their secrets, but will she live long enough to uncork the story?

Cassandra's Review- The author has a more vulgar approach to writing in a way that I think might be for shock value, but it is kind of a turn off when reading a good book.   The story has ups and downs because of they way it is given so profoundly.   I would not purposely search this author out to read more.

38197676
Chasing the Merry-Go-Round (memoir, special needs, personal growth) Life moves fast. Too fast for some people. This is the true story of what it's like to live in a world where you can't keep up. Bobby was ten months old when my mom and dad rescued him from birth parents who were slowly killing him. He was adopted into our family after a lengthy custody battle.

 Instead of that settling him, it set off a lifelong struggle to find a place to belong, a place to call home. Like an old-fashioned merry-go-round, the world moved at a speed that was just too fast for Bobby. He couldn't keep up, which prevented him from keeping a job, a roof over his head, and the basics needed to survive. The life he dreamt of was always out of reach.

 No one knew why. While cultural ideals of what a "normal" life looks like can distort our perspective, Chasing the Merry-Go-Round allows readers to see the world through the eyes of a person with intellectual and physical disabilities, which can often be invisible, especially at first glance. It's a story about struggle and hope, survival and resilience, and most of all, the gift of acceptance and love.

Cassandra's Review- Sad, eye opening, an honest look at something so real in a way that transformed the moments in my mind as I got in the more powerful points of the chapters.  The author gives all to the reader in a way that feels pure and it is so mixed with an emotional merry go round of sorts.

36642219
Sanity Lost & Found (Memoir, abuse, cult, personal growth, inspirational) How do we become victims of our own irrationality? What makes us vulnerable to the predators among us? Why would an otherwise sensitive, intelligent woman allow herself to return again and again to her abuser? How do we stop the erosion of our self-worth?

Simultaneously recognizable and horrifying, we see parts of ourselves and our own vulnerabilities in this compelling story of one woman’s descent into and climb out of the abyss.

For anyone who has ever allowed themselves to be victimized, for anyone who has ever doubted their value, for anyone wanting to protect their children from such vulnerabilities, SANITY LOST & FOUND is a compelling, informative, and inspirational read that weaves together the how and why for such vulnerabilities and the components necessary for recovery and transformation.

Cassandra's Review- The book was everything a story would be in a setting like this and was actually worth taking the time to get through the slower sections.  I could feel pain and moments that were so true to life that is gave me a sickly feeling in a good way. 

I received complimentary copies.
