Ditter Kellen has been in love with romance for over twenty years. To say
she’s addicted to reading is an understatement. Her eBook reader is
an extension of her and holds many of her fantasies and secrets. It’s
filled with dragons, shifters, vampires, ghosts and many more
jaw-dropping characters who keep her entertained on a daily basis.
Ditter’s love of paranormal and outrageous imagination have conspired together
to bring her where she is today…sitting in front of her computer
allowing them free rein. Writing is her passion, what she was born to
do. I hope you will enjoy reading her stories as much as she loves
Ditter resides in Florida with her husband and many unique farm animals. She
adores French fries and her phone is permanently attached to her ear.
Ditter Kellen is giving away a Kindle Fire at the end of each month until
the release date!

Welcome to My Monday Minis Reviews where I share short reviews of books I’ve read. For today I’ll be sharing my thoughts about Sweet lake by Christine Nolfi, the first book in the Sweet Lake Series.
Sweet Lake #1
by Christine Nolfi
There’s something about stories that are written around inns and bed & breakfasts that draws me in. I like to read about the daily running of them and the guests and other characters that reside there.
There’s no lack of colorful characters at the Wayfair Inn. There’s Linnie, daughter and owner of the inn, struggling to bring it back to it’s former glory after her black sheep of a brother, Freddy, nearly put it in bankruptcy. She’s tough in business but soft where the human condition figures into things.
You’ve got her two close friends, Jada and Cat, who constantly pull Linnie’s head out of the sand when she tries to hide from confrontations and personal decisions. Friends like that are handy indeed.
There’s the Sweet Lake Sirens. Among my favorites. A group of older ladies who mind the P’s and Q’s of everyone else. They remind of the Ya Ya Sisterhood and such a hoot.
And there’s local attorney and hottie, Daniel Kittering. He’s carried a torch for Linnie for a long time and things are starting to heat up.
Plus, now Freddy is back in town. So you can imagine the tongues wagging as everyone wonders what the devil he could want. He’s got some nerve as he’s done things to make most everyone angry with him.
I’m very much into character driven stories and this book has a plethora to engage with. And the author has you wishing for happiness for all, even the brother who lost his way.
It all flows fast and furious, keeping the reader immersed in the story, eager for the conclusion, and crossing fingers for a happy ending.
An enjoyable read and great beginning to a fun series. This is the perfect read to enjoy at the beach, or any time, anywhere.
Linnie Wayfair knows just how many people are counting on her. But knowing doesn’t make doing any easier.
Everyone in Sweet Lake, Ohio, wants her to muster all her business sense and return the Wayfair Inn to its former glory. Her parents hope she’ll forgive her scoundrel of a brother and reconcile the family. The eccentric Sweet Lake Sirens want her to open the inn—and her heart—to new possibilities. And her hilarious lifelong friends Jada and Cat are dropping none-too-subtle hints for her to ignite a romance with Daniel Kettering, the sexy attorney who’s been pining for her for years…
Now a shocking turn of events will open old wounds and upend the world Linnie has carefully built. She has to make changes quickly—and the results, though not entirely what she expected, might be what she’s been yearning for all along.

A Collection of Dark Tales
by Multiple Authors
Genre: Dark Tales / Thriller / Serial Killers
I’m drawn to stories about serial killers. I’ve been told by many it’s a morbid fascinate. LOL You’ll get nine short stories about them in this anthology, each author bringing their own dark spin to their tales.
I won’t play favorites and name any certain ones, but some of these hit hard and a couple were pretty good. One left me confused. I read it twice and felt like the end might have been left off or I just completely didn’t get it.
It was great to read some familiar authors and discover new ones. I found a few that I’ll be checking out now.
There’s lots of terrible monsters in these pages. They may look human, but there’s no humanity in the way they delight in their kills. You’ll also come across a bit of the paranormal or supernatural, which I find adds to the suspense and scares.
A great collection that’s sure to satisfy that dark craving inside you. I read them late at night and got even more thrills.

That takes weird to a whole new level. Add to that, with a serial killer on the loose, she finds herself spending a lot of time at work—and with David.

Valentine’s Day will be red with blood in this rural town. Author Kimberly McGath will keep you guessing in The Silent Widow, with many twists and turns that will make you Scream. But will you be able to?

A Sultry Abyss by Sue Coletta

When visions hit too close to reality, Syd goes to a hypnotist to tap into her subconscious. What she envisions shakes her very core. Can she use her skills to expose the killer?

Dragon Point #1
by Eve Langlais
Narrated by Chandra Skye
Published by Tantor Audio.
Published January 25, 2017
Format: Unabridged Audiobook
Length: 7 hours and 22 minutes
Genre: Paranormal / Fantasy / Romance / Shifters
Not having read Eve’s books before, but meaning to, I didn’t know what to expect. It’s a brand new spin off series from her Bitten Point books. I was thrilled with this book. I was quickly immersed in the story and never felt the need for a break.
Aimi is strong, knows what she wants and goes for it, that being Brandon. I have a feeling he doesn’t stand a chance. It was fun to meet Aimi. She’s my kind of gal. And the antics of her odd family gave me plenty of chuckles.
Brandon grew on my quickly. He’s got a lot to handle, trying to adjust to his new self. He escaped from a facility that experimented on him and he’ll forever be changed by it. He doesn’t know what to make of the sexy and determined Aimi, who states he’s hers.
The chemistry between these two characters was electric. I was anxious to see who would give in to who and had such fun with their back and forth banter.
There’s plenty of snarky dialogue, which is always a win with me. Lots of intrigue, people needing rescuing, and some steamy encounters to warm you up on a cold night.
I’ve been wanting to try Eve’s Bitten Point series, and after having such fun with this book, now I have to.
About the narrator.
Chandra Skye does a fabulous job. She even manages to pull off the male characters convincingly. I’ll be keeping an eye out for her.
I received a complimentary copy from Tantor Audible Books. My review is voluntarily given.
A new series spun off the end of Bitten Point…
Dragon Point isn’t a place, but rather a society, a secret one. And humans aren’t invited.
I’m a monster. That’s what Brandon thinks when he flees the medical institute that changed him. Living a normal life isn’t in the cards for him because, while he can hide his scaly skin, his wings are hard to miss. So he runs and lives in the shadows where monsters belong. What he didn’t expect to find were others just like him, and they call themselves dragons. Or so Aimi with the violet eyes tells him when she pins him to the ground.
Seriously, though, dragons?
He doesn’t want to believe, but the evidence is mounting. Not helping his resolve is the fact that the woman with the silver hair doesn’t fear the monster and wants to claim him.
However, before he can think of his own happiness, he has to rescue his little sister. Uncle Theo kidnapped her, and Brandon will do anything to get her back, even if he must embrace the monster within to become the dragon.
