Which is #FREE July 30-31  ONLY!!



Pelican Freak’s 5-star review:



Seems professional, only a few errors noticed.


Absolutely gorgeous! If only every book were this pretty.

Character development:

So much fun! I like Vanessa and her house- yes her house- is its own character, I think- immediately. All of the book b!tches are great, I related to them all.  The town itself is another character and I quickly fell in love with the small-town vibe. There are characters to loathe, characters to root for, and characters whose books I think I’ve already predicted – overall brilliant design all around, with impressive attention to detail.

Wow. This book sucked me in fast and I immediately realized that putting it down resulted in serious separation anxiety. I missed it every second that I wasn’t in it. It was like a drug – I was trying to read it while walking around my neighborhood on errands, and while simultaneously talking to customers at work, for example. Hazardous!

This book has lots going on: there’s romance with heat. There’s new friendships with some really fun women -though I may be partial to the Book Bitches. There’s a bit of paranormal activity with some friendly ghosts that completely add to the charm of the town and every building in it. There’s history, and it’s completely real-feeling and fun and addictive – Conley should publish more Historicals, I’d read those all day. There’s also some modern-day mystery, which I’ll let you see for yourself… Definitely highly recommend this book.

I tend to predict everything, and I usually will not rate a book 5 stars unless it can manage to surprise me somewhere. However, this is a 5-star read, surprises or not. That said, there were a few little surprises /a few things that didn’t go exactly to my predictions.

I’ll be very impatiently waiting on the rest of this series and I strongly recommend giving this book a read. If you’ve never read Conley- do it. Start with this or Saving Charlie or Craze (which is free at the time of this posting).

I’m here to share one of my favorite gel pen sets with you. This set of 40 by Art-N-Fly has been great.

Lately, I’ve enjoyed coloring with gel pens so I’m burning through them quickly and as a result I’ve tested several sets. Some of them only come half full, others bleed or are scratchy if they work at all.

If you’re looking for a set that writes smooth, doesn’t bleed through the pages, doesn’t leak and shows up nice and full, I recommend this one.

At just $19.99, it’s priced lower than some of the other sets I’ve tried that don’t work as well. No nonsense – comes in a thin, plastic container. It’s soft plastic, so it’s not something I’d reuse, but it’s served me well for storing this set.

The glitter pens are really glittery, and so – gorgeous. The neons are bright and glow in the blacklight. All 40 of them work well and have a smooth flow. Great for writing, also fine for coloring in detailed areas, etc.

I received this set at a discounted rate in exchange for my honest review. When it runs out, I’ll likely re-purchase this one as it’s proven reliable.


This was one of my favorite reads ever. So this is just a super quick post to share that it’s on sale, temporarily.
