They have three amazing sons, a board game designer, a sound engineer and a musician, all who live nearby. For more than fifteen years she wrote freelance for magazines and newspapers, wrote television commercials, radio spots, numerous press releases, and many, MANY PTA newsletters.

Excerpt

#FireworksintheFog

Tari Lynn Jewett

The Beach Break Coffee Bar was crowded and the girls squeezed through the throng of people to get to the table Evan was holding for them.

“It’s nice to be connected.” Ashley said as she slid into the seat next to Lucy.

Lucy smiled and started to respond just as Ashley smacked her on the arm. “Nooo,” she groaned. “That’s him over there.”

All three of her friends turned to look in the direction she’d pointed. Five good looking guys sat at a table laughing and drinking beer.

“Which one is he?” Mindi asked.

“He’s the jerky one.”

“You’ll have to be a little more descriptive.” Randi said. “I mean, they all look pretty friendly to me.”

“The one in the grey T-shirt. Don’t let that boyish smile fool you. He’s not nice.”

“I don’t know,” Mindi said. “I think he looks very nice. Look at the way that shirt hugs his biceps. Wish he’d turn this way so I could get a better look at his face.”

“What’s his name?” Randi had to raise her voice to be heard over the band who had moved back onto the stage and were warming up their instruments.

“Officer Lopez,” Ashley answered, trying to be heard over the music.

“What?” Randi raised her voice again.

“Officer Lopez!” Ashley said loudly just as the band stopped and the coffee bar buzz dropped to a din.

Officer Lopez and his buddies all turned to see who had shouted his name, and the lead singer of Reflective Lenses who was already standing in front of the mic picked it up.

“Officer Benny Lopez, you’re not even in the band, and cute girls are shouting your name. How’d you do that?”

Laughter rippled through the little coffee bar and Ashley considered crawling under the table.

“It’s okay Ashley,” Lucy said, “Evan just had a new refrigerator delivered. I’ll go get the box. We can smuggle you out of here without anyone seeing you!”

At least Randi tried to hide her smile, but Mindi made no effort to contain her amusement.

Review:

Life can get complicated, but it helps when you have good friends, especially the kind who know what you need before you do, and who set out to help you even when you think you don’t need it.  Confusion? Oh, yeah! Ticked off? Maybe a little.

Still brooding over her breakup last year, Lucy Vaughn settles in to her day job as an elementary school teacher.  Evenings, she curls up with a Victorian romance novel. Life is peaceful, but lonely, until her friends and social media take over her life.

Lucy has a secret admirer who’s too shy to ask her out. So his brother decides to help things along to connect him with Lucy.  He posts an anonymous invitation as a secret admirer asking Lucy to be his date for Valentine’s.  Each day, he adds to the post giving hints as to his identity.

Lucy and her best friend Ashley sort through the clues: local guy, owns his own business, and he’s a musician.  Then they compile a list of possibilities. Could it be the guy she met at the New Year’s Party?  The techie from the school field trip?  Her new neighbor?

Or maybe it’s the man Lucy least expects. He’s closer than she thinks. In fact, he has no idea that his brother has set this event in motion.

The social media posts, like true love, spiral out of control and go viral. Soon the whole world is commenting and urging Lucy to, “Please say yes!”

Got friends?  On social media?  Prepare yourself. You just might be the next Lucy Vaughn.

So while you’re waiting for your friends to take over your life, for your good of course, read Tari Lynn Jewett’s,  #PleaseSayYes.  It will make you laugh and warm your heart.

 

See you next time on July 22nd.

Veronica Jorge Reviews The Day Bailey Devlin’s Ship Came in A Novel by Rebecca Forster

March 22, 2019 by in category Book Reviews by Veronica Jorge, Write From the Heart by Veronica Jorge tagged as , , ,

The Day Bailey Devlin’s Ship Came In (Book 3 of the Bailey Devlin Series)
by Rebecca Forster
Amazon Digital Services  2015 
ASIN: B013XNYKMY

Meanwhile…

If you’ve been with us through books 1 and 2 of the Bailey Devlin series, by now you love Bailey, want to shake some sense into her, or both.

In this last of the three book series, Bailey’s ship comes in . . . in more ways than one.

You might think she married Jeffery. After all, he helped care for her grandpa, loves her nuttiness, took her home to meet his parents, threw a wonderful party for her, and proposed in front of both their families. So who else but Jeffery, right?

We’re talking about Bailey, remember? Nothing ever goes according to plan. Horoscopes can be misleading, pennies aren’t always lucky, and love can sometimes sail away.

The Day Bailey Devlin's Ship Came In

In book 3, The Day Bailey Devlin’s Ship Came In, Bailey realizes that her heart might belong to someone else: Ethan, her musician neighbor. Problem is, Ethan doesn’t live here anymore. He’s traveling on cruise ships with his band. Bailey can’t bring herself to marry Jeffery until she’s absolutely sure which of two she truly loves. So, she makes a Bailey Devlin decision. She tracks Ethan down and boards the ship where he is currently employed.

Complications arise when Bailey discovers she’s on a Single’s cruise and has to keep dodging the same guy. Confusion jumps on board when she sees Ethan with a woman, assumes he has a girlfriend, and convinces herself that her chances with Ethan have sunk. She spends the rest of the cruise trying to avoid Ethan . . . until she sees “his” girl with another man.

Worried about Bailey; Jeffery, Grandpa, Bailey’s boss, and his flirty daughter arrive on the ship.

Determined to warn Ethan and rescue him from the woman’s clutches, Bailey goes overboard . . . literally, and has to be rescued by none other than . . . .

To find out which of the two her heart belongs to, you’ll have to read, The Day Bailey Devlin’s Ship Came In.

If you haven’t yet read any of the books, you’re depriving yourself of fun, laughter, and warmth. A modern day I Love Lucy, and with a motely cast of characters and situations that rival a Seinfeld episode, Bailey’s a riot!

See you next time on April 22nd.

The Day Bailey Devlin Picked Up a Penny: A Review by Veronica Jorge

February 22, 2019 by in category Book Reviews by Veronica Jorge, Write From the Heart by Veronica Jorge tagged as , , ,
The Day Bailey Devlin Picked Up a Penny

The Day Bailey Devlin Picked Up A Penny

Book 2 of the Bailey Devlin Series

by Rebecca Forster

CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform 2015

ISBN# 978-1517072728

Previously . . .


When we first met Bailey Devlin in, The Day Bailey Devlin’s Horoscope Came True, (see my review posted on Dec. 22, 2018), Bailey was struggling with the unexpected arrival of her grandfather, studying to pass the bar exam, and conflicted about her feelings for two guys.

In The Day Bailey Devlin Picked Up A Penny, book 2 of the Bailey Devlin Series, our heroine is on a weekend getaway with Jeffery to “meet the parents.” Driving through the pouring rain, Bailey spots a woman stranded on the roadside and urges Jeffery to turn the car around and go back to help her. Bailey braves the downpour to help the woman into the car. The three of them arrive at the mansion with Bailey drenched and looking like something the cat dragged in . . . and then threw away. Not the great first impression she was hoping to make on Jeffery’s family.

The stranger turns out to be Jeffery’s childhood friend, now drop-dead-gorgeous . . . Penny. And this is one penny Bailey can’t toss away! In Bailey’s mind, Penny is a rival who threatens her potential future with her true love. And to make matters worse, Penny has a secret that no one but Bailey seems concerned about.

Since our Bailey rarely takes the easy or direct route to confront her problems, she lets her fears and suspicions lead her into trouble and grief. The only foot she’s able to put forward is the left one, usually into her mouth.

Write from the Heart | Veronica Jorge | A Slice of Orange
Veronica Jorge

Navigating a maze of confusion and misunderstanding, Bailey finds herself wallowing in self-doubt and treading the waters of low self-esteem. She questions whether luck and love are well-matched and wonders if maybe it’s like her mother said, ‘luck encompasses those things and events that can change the course of one’s life.’

To find out if the events in this book change Bailey’s life and confirm her true love, you’ll have to read, The Day Bailey Devlin Picked Up a Penny. It just might be your lucky day!

See you next time on, March 22nd.
