Synopsis

Emma never dreamed of being a super-sleuth. In her mind, she’s more Scooby Doo than Nancy Drew and when her nosy neighbor, Mrs. Perkins, drags her to an anniversary party to solve a mystery, she rolls her eyes, buys a box of chocolates and hops in the car.

What’s a party without an attack on its host—or more accurately on the host’s grandson, sparking an allergic reaction and moving the party to the hospital waiting room. Suddenly, everyone is a suspect. Emma and Mrs. Perkins, along with Great Aunt Alice (a spirit with boundary issues who keeps stepping into Emma’s body like a new dress and playing matchmaker), dive into an investigation that almost gets Emma killed along with the man they are trying to protect. With so many reasons to kill him and so much to be gained if he died, Emma and Mrs. Perkins must unravel the tenuous ties that point to every member of his family as potential killers.

Even if it means going back to the psych ward, Emma will protect her friend and this innocent man. What good is freedom if it’s haunted with guilt?

About The Author:

Anna Simpson lives near the Canadian-US border with her family. Even though she’s lived in several places in British Columbia, her free spirit wasn’t able to settle down until she moved back to her hometown.

She is easy to find though, if you know the magic word — emaginette. Do an internet search using it and you’ll see what I mean. :-)

The Travel Adventures Of PJ Mouse In Canada

Book One

The Travel Adventures of PJ Mouse in Canada

My Review

Emily hears a cry for help and bends over to look under a bench. She discovers a stuffed animal. It’s PJ. He’s no ordinary mouse. He can talk and a lucky few can hear him.

With some cleaning up, PJ is as good as new and sets off on an amazing adventure with Emily and her family, touring Canada and seeing so many wonderous places.

PJ is a very lucky mouse.

The idea of a talking stuffed animal was so fun. When I was but a young girl, I used to imagine my toys and stuffed animals came to life while I was sleeping. I would have loved this story then, as much as I did now.

Filled with adorable watercolor pictures of the character’s grand adventures, you are introduced to some of Canada’s wonderful sights.

Easy for young children to follow, they’ll be charmed by this chapter book and will beg you to read it to them again or read it over and over themselves.

The Travel Adventures Of PJ Mouse In Queensland

Book Two

The Travel Adventures of PJ Mouse in Queensland

My Review

Lost and then found, PJ Mouse, the delightful talking stuffed animal, is off on another adventure. Follow him as he explores Queensland, by land and by sea.

Another wonderful chapter in this adventure series. Never having been to Australia, I especially enjoyed the watercolor illustrations. PJ is so adorable and the places he explores are beautifully depicted.

Follow PJ as he swims with sea turtles, hitches a ride on a Lorikeet, and winds up in a bit of a pickle.

PJ was his usual adorable self and I smiled a lot, wishing I had a young one to read this to.

This is another book your children will be wanting to explore again and again.

My Teaser from page 63 in the paperback.

“When he stalks a victim, I feel him. When he kills that victim, I feel him. I feel his hunger, his need, his desperation.”

I won the first four books in this series and if I go by this first book, I’m going to enjoy all of them!

Read on if you want to know more.

Synopsis

A detective with a secret lineage. An undercover Hunter with a bullet-proof soul. And a world made to pay for the sins of an angel…

Homicide detective Alexandra Jarvis answers to no one. Especially not to the new partner assigned to her in the middle of a gruesome serial killer case-a partner who is obstructive, irritatingly magnetic, and arrogant as hell. Aramael is a Power–a hunter of the Fallen Angels. A millennium ago, he sentenced his own brother to eternal exile for crimes against humanity. Now his brother is back and wreaking murderous havoc in the mortal realm. To find him, Aramael must play second to a human police officer who wants nothing to do with him and whose very bloodline threatens both his mission and his soul.

Now, faced with a fallen angel hell-bent on triggering the apocalypse, Alex and Aramael have no choice but to join forces, because only together can they stop the end of days.
