Must Read "Pieces of Me Rescuing My Kidnapped Daughters" By Lizbeth Meredith

Synopsis:
In 1994, Lizbeth Meredith said good-bye to her four- and six year-old daughters for a visit with their non-custodial father—only to learn days later that they had been kidnapped and taken to their father’s home country of Greece.

Twenty-nine and just on the verge of making her dreams of financial independence for her and her daughters come true, Lizbeth now faced a $100,000 problem on a $10 an hour budget. For the next two years—fueled by memories of her own childhood kidnapping—Lizbeth traded in her small life for a life more public, traveling to the White House and Greece, and becoming a local media sensation in order to garner interest in her efforts. The generous community of Anchorage becomes Lizbeth’s makeshift family—one that is replicated by a growing number of Greeks and expats overseas who help Lizbeth navigate the turbulent path leading back to her daughters.

Review:
Engaging, Eye Opening, Horrific True Story
This is a harrowing story about every mother’s worst nightmare. Lizbeth Meredith’s ex husband kidnaps her two daughters and takes them from Alaska to Greece. Lizbeth must find the strength and courage to go after them and fight to get them back. She must put her fears and low self worth behind her and take on the fight of her life. Getting her daughters back is all she can think of and all she can do
In this true story of one woman’s heart wrenching ordeal, we find that one can do more than expected when forced to save the lives of loved ones.

This story drew me in right from the very beginning. The things this woman must endure are more than any women could take. There is a lot of tension as she overcomes many obstacles and faces much resistance. It’s more than most people could endure. But with her children as her focus, she forges ahead.
It is an action packed book while Lizbeth faces danger and obstacles. With courage and perseverance she pushes ahead and fights the perspective governments to get her daughter's back. It seems that no matter what she does, there is resistance. But her hard work and continued struggle and persistence pays off as her children are finally returned to her.

The retelling of her story has to have been hard in itself.
But this story is excellently written as the author produces a clear picture of what her life was like and how she fought through thick and thin to live and to get her children back.
This was a tearjerker for me and I couldn’t put it down. I read it quickly, turning the pages in anticipation. The book is written with a clear voice and intent. This is a wonderful read. It is excellent in composition and written with a high standard of literacy.

If you love true stories and one that is full of action, emotion and anticipation with a heart wrenching plot filled with hope, then “Pieces of Me: Rescuing My Kidnapped Daughters”
Is the book for you and you will not be disappointed. This is one astounding terrific book, that is far above most.

Domestic violence almost kills Rosa and does kill Tony's police wife. Their friends, family members and a new European touch therapy spa, Le Salon de l’Amour all try to help them find the next chapter of their lives. Neither can heal without touch, yet their paths to recovery leave them untouched and alone. Their responses create an abused women’s movement in Little Italy and beyond.
Review:
Enjoyable, Engaging and Delightfully Different
This is a romantic story about two people, Rosa DeAngelo and Tony Prezzi. Destined to be together, they each lead separate lives in the beginning. Rosa marries at a young age. Her husband turns out to be an abuser. Eventually Rosa leaves him. Meanwhile, Tony Prezzi marries also. But His wife, who is a cop, dies a hero in the line of duty. Will Rosa and Tony find each other, that is what is on the reader's mind. However, it will be a while.
Rosa learns of a european technique called touch therapy. Through that she experiences extraordinary healing and a new way of feeling. For the time being, Tony is working on his career. When will these two get together?
This story is heartfelt and endearing. It follows Rosa and Tony for over a decade as they grow and mature and find their way in the world.  I was drawn in from the very beginning. It touches on the serious issue of domestic abuse. But there is a lot of humor and lighthearted conversations and events.
Set in the New York Italian community, I reveled in the culture and the humorous characters.
This book is written extremely well. I was impressed with the writing and the simple smart manner that author Casey Costra wrote the characters and the plot. It flowed at a fast pace and held my interest throughout. The characters interactions and conversations with one another are meaningful and touch on important life subjects.
The storyline is unique and uncontrived . The touch therapy part is an unique exciting and meaningful idea. I really enjoyed the italian family and culture aspect which isn't a common theme, making this a unique story. I think that author Casey Costra wrote it very well. Sometimes writers write too many characters and then the storyline can be undefined. This one is an extremely well written story with excellent composition. Casey Costra is an outstanding writer.

Touch By Casey Costra is an interesting, sincere, sexy story of people that lead realistic lives. I thoroughly enjoyed it and recommend it to all readers that are looking for something different and exceptional. Click To Purchase "Touch" Now

Other than that, it's is a piece of cake
Review:
Nicky Vocci is a well know italian gangster. He is  thug and a merciless murderer.
He lives for himself and causes harm to many people. But in a turn of events, Nicky gives up his life to save a mother and child. He is then commissioned by a group of angels to intervene in the life of a young woman, Lily, and help save her from life’s circumstances and ultimately save her from death. The angels tell him that by saving her, he will in turn save himself. Will he be successful? That is the question that is on the reader's mind.

Without Wings-To Save A Soul is an interesting allegory type story. It is engaging and full of action. Nicky, whose name becomes Daniel in his new life, has the task of helping Lily overcome
Insecurity and find freedom from many tormenting feelings. He is also tasked to help Lily find love with the caring gentleman, Liam.
I thoroughly enjoyed Without Wings. I was drawn in by the fast paced story. It is intense and engaging. Being a story about a ruthless gangster, there is a lot of crime, murder and violence. But the tale does soften up when Daniel encounters the angel faith and is told to help Lily and Liam find love in one another.
This book is written very well. There are many twists and turns. The characters are well developed, realistic and likeable. The storyline and plot are clear and concise.
The author, Thomas Joseph Beck, takes readers on a roller coaster of events and feelings.
I couldn’t book the book down and read it in one day.

If you enjoy books that contain action, sex, murder and ultimately love and goodness, then this is the book for you.

Must Read: "A Much Younger Man" By Mia Fox

Synopsis:
It was wrong, but maybe that’s why it felt so right.
We met when Cole tackled the thief who stole my purse. It was raining. I was cold and hurt. Cole rested a hand on my forearm to reassure me. His touch was warm, his voice soft and confident. Neither of us could look away from one another. And then he smiled. For the first time since my cheating ex left me with a mountain of debt, I felt alive and beautiful, again.

Cole’s thick thighs and ripped abs are the source of endless fantasies, but he’s also a gentleman who sheltered me from harm. Not to mention, the thrill of being noticed by a much younger man.

Later that night, I wrote a blog post about my forbidden fantasy. It went viral instantly. Now my boss at the online site where I freelance wants me to see Cole again and to post about the taboo romance that’s captured the attention of thousands of people online.

We’re both consenting adults. Should it matter that Cole’s half my age? Or that I’m doing this to help pay my bills?

Is being with Cole wrong or…oh-so-right

Review:
Engaging, sexy and romantic.

This somewhat taboo love story got my full attention from the very first chapter. Then, I couldn’t put it down. Our author, Mia Fox, takes us down a road of an attraction between a woman in her forties and a young man that is much much younger than her. The main character, Kat, struggles with her emotions and feelings about being with such a younger man. But, plenty of men have younger women, so why does this have to be taboo. That was my thinking.

The beginning starts out with flirtation, attraction and excitement between the two of them. Then, we are taken on a ride of strong emotions of various types, along with adventure and action that comes as a surprise. All the while Kat is struggling with various emotions because of  her relationship with Cole and it brings up feelings and things she must overcome. This is a love story and love has no borders, we love who we love.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story.
The characters are very realistic, likable and well developed. I really like the interaction between the various people, but especially between Kat and Cole. I was drawn into their lives and their struggles. The author weaved the characters into the plot perfectly. The storyline and plot are superbly written, and a lot of forethought obviously went into this story. Author Mia Fox has written a great work of fiction for those who crave something different, and would like a little forbidden love thrown into a great read..
This is a unique story and different than what I have read in quite a while. I enjoyed it from beginning to end. It is a smart, fast, and easy read, but not lacking in depth.


If you like a little sexy and slightly taboo read, mixed in with adventure, danger, and all kinds of emotion that will require some tissues, then this is the book for you.
