Review: Hidden, by Rebecca Zanetti

Malcolm “Mal” West is a recently retired undercover police officer. His last assignment left him physically and mentally battered. Plagued with guilt at having betrayed the closest thing he had to a brother and at the same time proud to have been part of taking down one of the most powerful mafia families in the country, he’s decided to retreat to a quieter life. But moving next door to Pippa Smith was the start of anything but quiet. Pippa has been on the run from a cult leader, Isaac and his followers, known as The Family, for years. She’s learned the art of not getting close to anyone and staying not only under the radar but completely off the grid. Living just…

The Sarge Chronicles: My Protector

Since I often share the frustrating–yet amusing–stories about Sarge, I thought it only fair to share some of the good as well. A few weeks ago I was having a panic attack. It’s not a regular occurrence for me–thankfully–but none-the-less, it happened. While I was trying to calm myself down, Sarge came over and jumped up at me as if to say, “It’s ok.” Eventually, it was–sort of. Since the panic attack happened in...

Book Review: The Blackstone Affair

While I’ve been remiss in writing, I have not been remiss in reading.

I went on to read the 3rd book in what was supposed to be the Bared to You ‘trilogy,’ Entwined With You. A few nights ago, I finished the latest in the Chaos series by Kirsten...

OMG, I Think I’m a Foodie!

We put labels on a lot of things–people included. There are many labels I would give myself: good listener, funny, creative, obsessive handbag connoisseur, and the list goes on and on. However, what I discovered after coming home from dinner with one of my girlfriends last week is I can add another label to myself–foodie. This one caught me by surprise, but after careful consideration–I don’t know why. See, I always thought foodie’s were...

Book Review: Rock Chick

We all know what a big fan I am of romance novels (I still can’t believe I wrote that…). Indulge me for a moment: I used to read nothing and I mean nothing but mysteries. James Patterson and Patricia Cornwell are among my most favorite authors. When I was in a book club, my friends repeatedly gave me lectures on reading books outside my norm. I once read a Nora Roberts trilogy, and while...

A Real-Life Weight-Loss Story

Last week, I had the pleasure of meeting an incredibly inspiring woman. In my quest to find a weight loss program/exercise regime/healthy lifestyle, I found myself at Curves to explore their Curves Complete program. There, I encountered Ms. T. I recognized her from the Weight Watchers (WW) meetings I attended long ago. She’s been working at Curves for 7 years and did the Curves Complete program herself and lost 20lbs. Definitely, nothing to sneeze at. But...
