Blind Retribution by K. T. Roberts Review and GIVEAWAY

It should have been an open-and-shut case. When a car bomb explodes, taking with it the wife of a prominent heart surgeon, NYPD detective Maxine Turner is sure she has arrested the right suspect—until Cory Rossini, a private investigator, begins muddying the waters. Max already has enough to deal with: her longtime partner is retiring, her latest case is suddenly anything but simple, and she now has a troubling attraction to a man who is proving to be annoyingly persistent.

Having taken on the task of proving his friend’s innocence, Cory isn’t about to drop the ball—no matter how distractingly beautiful he finds the detective assigned to the investigation. When his sleuthing turns up other homicides connected to the cardiology department, including a young woman whose throat has been slit, he convinces Max that they should work together. And as they delve further into the vicious murders, they search for the one lead that will steer them straight to a killer…

You can purchase this book on Amazon.

Cassandra's Review- Twists and turns that are worth the read.  The author stays strong with her plots and overall storyline. The book was so well put together that even when I thought I had a clue as to what was going on, in the end I was so wrong.   If you have a taste for romance and a hunger for a good thrill, this is going to be a great read.  I would recommend this book to adults.

Children can now escape to a new adventure in Gigglyville with the second book in the series, What’s YOUR Birthday Wish? More Adventures in Gigglyville.
What’s YOUR Birthday Wish? is an inspiring, rhyming and fun book for children and their families — even if it’s not their birthday.

With charming full color illustrations accent the story’s vibrant verse.

She is the author of more than thirty books, including such bestselling works on the creative process as The Artist's Way, Walking in This World, and Finding Water, and her most recent title It’s Never Too Late to Begin Again.

Cassandra's Review-  Both of the books would make a great gift for the artist in your life.    I think they will really help to break the mold of the thinking block and create a way for creativity to unfold in a peaceful motion.  It is not going to narrow down one creative writing source such as painting etc, but rather blend them to include every kind of imagination as well as style choice.

Cassandra's Review-   I am amazed at the flavor combinations this brand thinks up.  This one I was a little leary about trying, but to my surprise it actually taste really good and not too overpowering.  The fragrance even had my family wanting to take a sip, but of course I do not let my kids drink coffee.
