Ebook Second ChancesThirty-seven year old Francie Davis, a recent widow and empty nester, gets to attend college at last. She’s sure her luck has changed when she also lands a job on campus that will pay her tuition, as administrative assistant to a history professor. When her handsome new boss yells at her on the first day of work, Francie worries she will never be good enough.

For Professor Alex Diederik, life is going downhill fast. Not only is his bitter ex-wife trying to poison their only daughter against him, but now his one place of solace—his work environment—is being complicated by his attractive new administrative assistant. She drives home his feelings of failure as a husband and father, and Alex wonders if hiring her was the right thing to do.

Francie will have to put aside her hurt and insecurities or risk her dreams, while Alex must look outside himself if he’s to mend the breach with his daughter. And, perhaps, find someone who can help heal his pain.

 

My Review:

Great story about a woman, Francie, who lives in a historical home, gardens, and cooks vegetarian dishes that had my mouth watering. Her troubled marriage over, due to her husband’s death, she is now faced with starting over and going back to college. Enter Alex, a somewhat short-tempered history professor who is suffering from the demise of a troubled marriage himself. Add to that an emotionally abusive ex-wife, a surly teenaged daughter and trying to navigate online dating, and his life only gets more complicated when he starts to fall for his lovely new assistant, Francie. I really enjoyed the way Weaver wove all of these characters together, and how they were all able to help and heal each other. How “the powers that be” will bring us together with the right person, at the right time, if we will simply open our hearts to the possibility. Enjoy!

I’m Very Pleased to Announce the Release of the Next Novella in the Ripple Effect Romance Series!

Ebook Lost and FoundLydia was supposed to have an adventurous and exciting summer. Instead she’s done nothing more than read and eat takeout. Now it’s time to go home, and what does she have to show for it? A big fat nothing. Unless, of course, her trip to the airport somehow turns into something more than just a flight home.

Blake feels like he’s been sent on a wild goose chase. While work is piling up back in Denver, he’s on the other side of the country, hunting for some mysterious box that his grandfather left him. Well, no more. Nothing inside that box could possibly be more important than the opportunity to make it as the youngest partner at his firm. So he’s going home, and that’s that. But that’s before he discovers his flight has been cancelled.

When these two strangers meet at the airport, they make a split-second decision to search for the box together. Maybe with both of them on the hunt, Lydia can have her adventure and Blake can find the box. And maybe, if they’re lucky, they’ll even find some romance.

 

My Review:

Super cute story about two people who couldn’t be more different but somehow find a common ground in their shared desire to solve the same mystery. I really liked Lydia and how she had a thirst for adventure but not enough courage to go out and find it. In a last-stitch effort to say she did more over the summer than read, she takes a chance on a handsome stranger, Blake. I really liked the way they got to know each other while looking for the message Blake’s grandfather wanted him to have. Both tragic and heartwarming, this novella with bring a smile to your lips and a tear to your eye.

Book Three in the Ripple Effect Romance Series is Here!

Ebook Righting A WrongSeven years ago, Cambri Blaine fled her small hometown of Bridger, Colorado after her senior year of high school ended in a fiasco. But now her father needs help, and Cambri has no choice but to return home. So with trepidation, she takes a leave of absence from the landscape architecture firm where she works and heads home, hoping against hope that Jace Sutton is no longer around and that the past can stay where it belongs—in the past.

If only life worked that way.

Jace never expected to see Cambri again. After she walked out of his life without a backward glance, he was left with no choice but to try to forget her and move on. But now that Cambri is back and looking more beautiful and sophisticated than ever, some of those old feelings resurface, and Jace instinctively knows, for the sake of his heart, that he needs to avoid her at all costs.

If only it were that easy.

My Review:

Great story about getting another chance at the one who got away. I was really excited to meet the woman Jace had been pining for in Silver Linings. I really liked Cambri and the fact that she loved plants. I loved her grumpy father and his creative swearing. I laughed out loud many times at him alone. It was brilliant the way the author showed a complicated relationship between father and daughter, and how being alike can be both a blessing and a curse. I enjoyed the romance between Jace and Cambri, and how they awkwardly moved one step at a time toward righting their regret–very nicely drawn by the author. Enjoy!

Top Ten Signs You Might be Watching Too Much HGTV

To go along with my contribution to the Ripple Effect Romance Series, I came up with a Tens List:

1. You start having dreams involving twins, Jonathan and Drew, from the Property Brothers that you can’t tell your husband and/or mother about.EbookHomeMatters

2. When your kids want to know why they have to wear sunblock at the pool, you tell them it’s because ‘natural light’ is damaging to the skin.

3. In the spring when all your neighbors are having yard sales, you’re having an “outdoor living space” sale.

4. You come home from the mall, and when your husband asks where you’ve been all day, you say, “Out ‘sourcing’ about a half-dozen pair of shoes,” to which he responds, “That’s nice Honey. Glad you didn’t spend any money,” to which you don’t say, “Who said anything about not spending any money?”

5. You’ve begun to truly believe that everything you see on HGTV is as easy as it looks, and thus have cancelled your yearly vacation to Club Med so you can stay home to “reimagine” your master bath into a “spa retreat” you can enjoy year round instead.

6. When your DIY project lands you in the ER with injuries to body parts that are a little awkward to explain, and the doctor asks, “What were you thinking, operating a power tool while wearing only a tank top and shorts?” You say, “Well, I suppose I was thinking that if Nicole Curtis can renovate, and look sexy at the same time, why can’t I?”

7. You begin to seriously consider that quitting your job and selling your home so you can move to a tropical, third-world country where you know no one, and can’t speak the language, in order to open a surf shop, slash, yoga studio, slash, hookah bar is the most brilliant idea you’ve ever come up with.

8. You understand that in order to secure a guest spot on most any HGTV show, you “must have” a love of both “entertaining” and “enjoying a glass of wine,” a desire to live close to “restaurants, bars and shops,” and have at least one dog and/or a variety of other random pets. Children, however, are more or less optional.

9. You’re life has begun to resemble the last five episodes of Renovation Realities and thus you are no longer able to either “entertain” or “enjoy a glass of wine” because you have a house full of DIY projects you’ve started but can’t seem to get finished.

10. You’re constantly looking for ways to work Piėce de rėsistance into regular everyday conversations.

If you are experiencing six or more of these signs and/or have even an inkling of what the aforementioned is even talking about, you might want to delete any and all DIY shows from your DVR, turn off the TV, and pick up a book, or six. 5 out of 5 therapists recommended The Ripple Effects Romance series as a good place to start.

I’m very excited to announce that I have a new project in the works!

Along with five other authors, I’m helping to create a series of romance novellas where each story “ripples” into the next. Sort of a pay-it-forward type concept.

My Story:

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 5.32.43 PMAccording to her mother, Olivia Pembroke was born to be a star. But how is she supposed to be famous, when she can’t even get a decent acting gig? Her lucky break comes when she lands an audition for a wildly popular home improvement show. It’s too bad Olivia has no design training. She’s never even held a power tool, but she refuses to let that stop her!  She’s confident that her destiny is finally within reach. When her affections are torn between her heartthrob co-host and the irritating, yet somehow endearing lead contractor, does she continue to reach for the stars? Or does she design a new happily ever after? One that leads not to the fading lights of fame and fortune, but to a love that will burn forever.

Here are the lovely covers. Click on the Goodreads button to view synopsis and author bios for the rest of the books in the series =D
