I am mother of five gorgeous daughters and fourteen precious grandchildren.
I have always loved reading. My earliest readings was Nancy Drew. Christian fiction is what I best enjoy reading but I do read a variety of other books. Some of my favorite authors are Colleen Coble, Janette Oke, Jodie Thomas and Nora Roberts aka J.D.Robb.

I will be able to better serve my followers once I know what type of books you like and their authors. If you are a writer and would like to be featured or have a book tour on my blog please contact me. Or if you would like me to read and review your book. As far as my education I attended Court Reporting Institute where I took Medical and Legal Terminology along with English I and II. I am now retired.

Smashwords book reviews by Patricia @itstimetoreadmamaw
- Edge of Escape
on July 10, 2011
Edge of Escape kept my attention from the beginning. One of the main characters in this book is a special ed student. He was heartlessly tagged by classmates as Special Eddie. Life can be so cruel for these little ones with special needs. On top of that he had a very unhappy childhood. He dealt with a real lack of love from his mother and the death of his father.
As a child he falls in love with Becky a sweet little girl that gave him a smile that he never forgot.
I have a mentally handicap daughter so this really touched my heart. It is so hard to understand where their actions are coming from and why they do the things they do.
I normally don't like books that jumps back and forth from past to present but the way this was written it made everything clearer. You understood more of why some of certain things were happening. But his behavior could not be excused. Who is responsible for his behavior him, his mother, classmates, teachers, counselors or the death of his father. Maybe all of them.
I highly recommend this book for the young and the old.
- Shadows From the Past
on Aug. 30, 2012
Aurora Kavvan, an LAPD officer, shuts herself off from everyone that loves and cares about her. She blames herself for her brothers death. She has even stopped praying and talking to God. How could God let this happen to her brother? It is like she has no right for happiness or forgiveness. Everyone must blame her. That is what she is thinking and instead of facing them with her feelings and opening her heart to God she puts up a wall. It is harder to forgive oneself than it is to forgive others.
When she is faced with death threats and a friend/partner ends up seriously injured, she is thrown back into her ex fiancee, FBI agent, Jordan Reiley's life. Not as his girlfriend but under protective custody. He protects her not only because it is his job but because he is still in love with her. But she still has a wall up between her heart and everyone else including him.
The author spins a good tale of suspense. I can normally figure out who the secretive bad person is but not in this book. I thought I had it figured out several times. This was definitely a good mystery to the very end. It was hard to put the book down. I am so glad I can jump right into books 2 and 3 in the series.
I highly recommend this book if you enjoy good mystery/suspense.
I received a copy of this book from Lightning Book Promotions. I was in no way compensated for my opinion on this book. These are my own thoughts and opinion.
The Shadow Series can be found on Amazon Kindle.
