Excerpt From the Book
Every step I have taken in this life, every path I have chosen,
every moment of laughter, of tears, of triumph and trials,
every single road has led me to this one moment.
A moment of pure bliss and happiness.
And I know now with absolute certainty,
I am that I might have joy.
Dominique's Diary

Mary's Review:  Dominque is a precotious eight year old whose crush on Marcello becomes much more than that over the years.  From "I'm going to marry Cello when I grow up" (Dominque's Diary) to Marcello's realization that the hold this sweet little girl has on his heart is bigger than them both.  This special love story that grows over the years will keep you spellbound from page to page and will bring back memories of the days you fell in love with that special someone in your life. 
I recommend this book for ages YA and older.   

About the Author

She and her husband Sean are the parents of eight children, which means they are both losing hair, but hey, that's what Rogaine is for, right?  In her spare time (when she has any) she likes to curl up with a good book and a healthy stash of orange Tic Tacs. She and her family reside in Utah.

Jewel loves hearing from her fans, so if you would like to contact her to tell her how much you love her books or give her sympathy for the fried brain, or suggestions for the hair loss problem (for her husband, of course) contact her at jewela40@gmail.com

Excerpt from Book
In your eyes I see all the wonders

of the world,
all the lifelong love a fathers' sown

 for his not so little girl.
For the Father of us all has granted

a special gift to me,
He has blessed with the knowledge
of forever. Your daughter I will always

 be. It's the love that's in your eyes
I see.


Mary's Review:  At the age of one Angel Hughes loses her parents Shane and Emma Hughes in a tragic airplane crash and is raised in London by her loving Aunt Elaine.
As she comes of age, she meets Mitch Greenland a young man from North Carolina and falls madly  in love with him.  When he talks her into leaving London and going to college in North Carolina, she can hardly turn him down.  She loves him too much and is sure he loves her.  She packs her bags and tearfully leaves her Aunt Elaine to start a new life.  Little does she know what awaits her there.  She meets Mitch's very good friend Ian Crawford and there is an immediate attraction between the two of them; instantly they are drawn to each other as if they had known each other all their lives.  What is this attraction and how will it impact their lives and the life of Mitch?
I recommend this book to everyone and be sure you have a box of tissues because you will need one.
Another job well done.

The Sound of Love

The Sound of Love
A Passionate Hearts Novelette
J. Adams

Excerpt from the book:

With tears blinding my vision, I turn away, not missing Edith's triumphant expression, and run from the restaurant. I am unable to think of anything except escaping–escaping the pain, and escaping him. I should have known it was all too good to be true. Everything I thought I knew had been a lie. He doesn't really love me. I've only been a hobby, and it is Ashton he has wanted all along. What we've shared means nothing to him. That, more than anything, is ripping my heart apart.
I want to die, God! I just want to die. From somewhere in my mind, I hear Dylan's voice saying, “And death shall have no dominion.” I push the voice away. I don't want to hear his voice or think of him ever again.

<><><><><>

Twenty-seven year old Talisa is living the life of a modern day Cinderella. Her father has just died, she has just buried him, and her stepmother throws her out of her own home. She has a two wicked stepsisters, Edith and Ashton, that hate her and that she feels sorry for and a stepbrother, Thomas, she loves and adores.
Dylan Thomas, a ruggedly handsome poet, is suspicious of every woman he comes in contact with due to the infidelity of his ex-wife. He feels no different about Talisa even though he has heard much about her from his close friend Thomas.
Two people looking for the same thing - unconditional love and trust. Will they find it in each other? Will they be able to resolve the hurt that has been heaped on them over the past few months? Will Talisa find her Prince Charming and will Dylan his Cinderella?
I found this a very charming modern version of Cinderella. Cinderella has always been my favorite Walt Disney movie and Jewel has very easily made this my favorite modern version.
I recommend this novella to anyone who is looking for and enjoys a good clean romance with a little whimsy to it.
