Goodbye, My Love (Roxanne’s Ghost Saga Book 1)
by Maggie Tideswell

A love that cannot be denied ~ and a love that cannot be. Who will win? It’s only a matter of time.

Jessica James needs a new job and her only prospect as a nanny is with a remotely located veterinarian who only wants a “mature” candidate. But youthful Jess has faced tougher challenges, and she is determined to show the very handsome yet rude widower that she is the perfect choice to care for his autistic 4-year-old daughter, no matter how much he scowls.

Dr. Ben Arnold is still grieving, and not only about the recent death of his beautiful wife. He is still coping with the knowledge his profound love for her was unreciprocated. The demands of working and taking care of Amber, his autistic young daughter, have Ben overwhelmed and the last thing he needs is an insanely strong physical reaction to a nanny who is the first to seem to connect with his beloved delicate daughter – and the last he thinks he can handle in his life.

Jess is an unseasonal storm to suddenly sweep through Ben’s life, and may be the balm he needs. While strange occurrences all around them defy answers and explanations, the unexpected arrival of Ben’s late wife’s sisters, including her identical twin, on the one-year anniversary of her death does nothing to help dispel the intense and instant desire between Jess and Ben – and Jess’ glimpses of a life long past only adds to the surreal sense of the estate called Weltevreden.

Cold Coffee Press Book Review: Goodbye, My Love by Maggie Tideswell starts with a poem titled Goodbye My Love by Demis Roussos.

Chapter one opens with main character (heroine) Jessica James standing outside a spooky deserted house on Friday the 13th with lightening flashing in the distance. She was there to meet Amber who lives in her own autistic world and consider becoming her next caretaker.

With strong characters and twenty eight well written chapters the reader is engaged when an elderly woman comes to the door. Jumping ahead to chapter eight Jessica (Jess) was nearly killed when a huge chandelier crashed to the floor just missing her. What else would this old house scare up and why?

Here is a brief example of Maggie’s writing style. “The blue light of daybreak was just beginning to lift the gloom in the room, yet Jess was already bathed and dressed, her face shining without makeup. She had to finger comb her hair again, leaving it fluffy and wild, framing her face. When she pulled the drapes aside, she was greeted by a breathtaking sight. The mountains, a deep, crisp blue in the early light, looked almost close enough to touch.

But she was exhausted. If that was what Friday the thirteenth was like, she would avoid the next one by spending the day in bed with a book and her phone switched off. Yet she knew there had to be a perfectly logical explanation for everything that happened, and she was going to find it before she left this strange house. If she didn’t, she would be wondering about it forever.”

If you enjoy romance, time Travel, paranormal and ghosts, like me you will find it a suspenseful and satisfying read. Maggie is a well-established paranormal romance writer with the Bridesmaids, Weddings & Honeymoons Series, Moragh’s Ghost Saga (series) and the Roxanne’s Ghost Saga (series).

I invite you to open the door and keep turning the page. I leave you with this quote titled Friday, 13 November by Soraya: “To my candle burning bright Protect my secret here tonight None shall listen, none shall see Just the candle flame and me”.

I, Theodocia McLean endorse and encourage you to enjoy Goodbye, My Love by Maggie Tideswell. I purchased this book in Kindle and this review was completed on August 2, 2017.

Tombstone Ghost Cowboy by Ruthie L Manier

Skylar Cummings never dreamed time travel was possible until she finds herself in a room with a gorgeous but calloused cowboy from the Wild Wild West. Researching paranormal activity in Tombstone, Arizona, Sky assumed she was witnessing a ghost, but she’d stumbled through a portal to the past.

Jesse Clarke is a nineteenth century cowboy who’s renounced love after a devastating heartbreak. Women only desire his money, so he’s better-off without them … until a mysterious woman materializes in his room.

After a string of disastrous events, Skylar creates dangerous enemies and discovers herself detained. Jesse is summoned to escort her out of town before a lynch mob develops, but an unquestionable chemistry is growing between them. Will Jesse help her attempt to return to the twenty-first century, or can he convince the feisty woman to build a new future with him?

“If you like adventure, time travel, and western romance, Tombstone Ghost Cowboy is an entertaining and enjoyable romance that will leave you wishing you could time travel to find a cowboy of your own!”

Book Review: I love the author’s passion and dedication to Tombstone, Arizona as she fell in love the Old West, Bird Cage Theater, Big Nose Kate’s Saloon and Lookout Lodge just to name a few.

While on vacation to Tombstone, Arizona the author’s creative mind started to put together this ‘Tombstone Ghost Cowboy’, time travel story, romance, and westerns all in one book.

There are twenty five well written chapters with characters that will grow on you. Chapter one starts out with main character Skylar Cummings on The Bird Cage Theater Tour. With an excited tease in her mind she chants under her breath, “Ghosts, ghosts, come out, come out, where ever you are.”

If you love a relaxing, enjoyable, fun, fast paced read, I invite you to join Skylar Cummings at Tombstone and she want her chant conjures up. Is Skylar ready for the adventure that awaits her?

To whet your appetite let me quote from Chapter Four where Skylar find herself pursued by Jesse Clarke (nineteenth century cowboy) which brings adventure and even danger into the mix:

“I’m consumed by this man when what I need to be doing is concocting a plan of escape. Wait a minute … how can this ghost cowboy’s heart beat out of control? Isn’t he dead … like centuries ago?

Before I can ponder on that any longer, we hear the distinct sound of shots being fired and horse hoofs pounding toward us. We turn back to peer over our shoulders. At least three riders, perhaps more, are riding fast as though there was a fire lit to the horses’ tails. It’s difficult to tell for sure with the dust storm their kicking up, but one thing’s for certain: they don’t look friendly.

“Damn! Hold on tight!” Jesse flicks the reins hard, and I feel his muscle-bound thighs kneeing Star into action to get him to run faster. I’m freaked out, trembling in fact, and nausea is showing its ugly face. I try to look behind me to see if they’re closing in.

“Keep your head down!” Jesse hisses through gritted teeth.

I curl up, trying to make myself as small as I can. My mind is whirling, thinking of all the horrible scenarios of how this horse chase could end.

I could be shot, or perhaps taken prisoner, beaten or, worse, raped. Deadwood pops into my head, and my sickness gets worse just thinking about it.

I turn my mind away from this line of thinking and push in thoughts of how I could help if we were to get captured. I wish I had my small purse gun, but it’s not even in this century. I’d ask Jesse to give me his pistol to fire at the bandits, but I gather without asking that it’s not an option. Perhaps he could slip me his knife, and I could tuck it in my dress. The hoofs are getting closer, and they keep firing their guns. Tears fill my eyes when I realize there’s nothing I can do to help.

I search Jesse’s face for any sign that he thinks we can survive, and all I spot is steal-headed determination. It scares the living hell out of me. Jesse would never give up nor give in. He’s a stubborn-minded cowboy from the 1880’s. Just like Tombstone is the “Town Too Tough to Die,” Jesse is a cowboy too tough to die. At least I hope that’s the case. Well, I guess he’s actually already dead.”

I, Theodocia McLean endorse Tombstone Ghost Cowboy (A time travel series) by Ruthie L Manier. This is a delightful romance that leaves you wanting more. I purchased this book from Kindle and this review was completed on June 26, 2017

The Skies Of Time by Russell F. Moran

Ashley and Jack have traveled back in time again. They went from 2016 to 1940, just before America’s involvement in World War II. They were on a public relations flight dreamed up by the Pentagon to celebrate Ashley’s promotion to rear admiral, making her the youngest admiral in history. They’ve time travelled before, but this time it’s different – they encountered a time portal, or wormhole – in the sky. They have a duty – to warn the authorities of the coming war. They also have a duty to themselves. They want to return to their home, their home in 2016. Their plane had a cockpit data recorder, a Black Box, which would give them the coordinates to find the wormhole and return home. But they’re horrified when they realize that 1940 technology could not read the data on the Black Box. They’re stranded – 76 years in the past. Will they have to restart their lives from 1940 and never return home? Or will they find a way to read the secrets of the box?

Timeless Honor (Mirrors of Time Book 3) by Amber Daulton

Jaye Ramsey decided to prove to her eccentric grandmother that time travel only existed in movies by vacationing in Bolivia with her friends. When she woke up in Hawksatter, England, 1735—the same town her grandmother supposedly vanished from as a young woman—Jaye found refuge at a hunting lodge but the strapping, reclusive baron who took her in reminded her all too well she was a lone woman at his mercy.

Accused of murdering his newly-wedded wife a decade earlier, Lord Lucas Kenway closed the family farm and shut out the world. He never expected the little spitfire he claimed responsibility for would turn his quiet life upside down. Pushed together by fate and his meddling servants, Lucas wanted Jaye on his own terms and refused to surrender his hardened heart.
Then a mysterious wise man offered Jaye a way home.

Should she return to the future and the only life she’d ever known, or stay in an uncertain past as a stranger in a new world?
