Molly’s Misadventures
Romantic Comedy
Self Published
Release Date: January 11, 2016
Print Length: 225 pages


I’m having the suckiest day ever. First, my father, aka Mr. Grumpy Pants, calls to say his nurse just walked out on him. Likely story. I rush home to pack only to walk in on my husband getting it on with his younger, skanky secretary. Unfortunately, my quick weekend trip home to fix Dad’s problems turns into a stay of a few weeks. Luckily, I’ve got Danny, the neighbor boy I had a crush on when I was a dorky, braces-wearing, nose-buried-in-a-book teenager, and a brand-spanking new blog to keep my mind off things. Before I know it, I’m writing product reviews of vibrators and getting questioned by a store rent-a-cop at the world’s worst date ever. All while trying to figure out how to take things with Danny to the next level. Not to complicate things or anything but my boss decides to give me an ultimatum – come back in four weeks or don’t come back at all. How in the world did my life get so complicated?

My Review

It 's a really funny romance, well written in an easy-to-read style which is just what I need at the end of a busy day.
The cantankerous father of Molly has chased away another caregiver. She has  to leave suddenly for Wisconsin to solve the problem. But coming home earlier than expected finds her husband on the couch with his secretary. He argues that it's just fun, that is fault of  Molly who is always traveling but she doesn't agree While trying to find a new person to take care of her father, she enjoys the company of her handsome neighbor and her adolescent crush, Danny. Molly also has the brilliant idea to start a blog "the misadventures of Molly." Will he find serenity and a man who loves her?
Molly is a great character and very realistic. She's funny, smart, a little insecure. I loved her blog, I'd love to write like her. Her father is a sprightly old grouch, very sexist (women only have to wash the dishes) but very affectionate with his princess. Danny is so charming and sexy, easy to fall in love with him.
I loved this book and once I started I could not put it down. Each pages leaves me with a smile on my face. It is an entertaining and relaxing read, is full of fun.
Very enjoyable for great beach reading or a break from routine.

D.E. HAGGERTYAbout The Author

I grew up reading everything I could get my hands on from my mom’s Harlequin romances to Nancy Drew to Little Woman. When I wasn’t flipping pages in a library book, I was penning horrendous poems, writing songs no one should ever sing, or drafting stories which have thankfully been destroyed. College and a stint in the U.S. Army came along, robbing me of free time to write and read, although I did manage every once in a while to sneak a book into my rucksack between rolled up socks, MRIs, t-shirts, and cold weather gear. A few years into my legal career, I was exhausted, fed up, and just plain done. I quit my job and sat down to write a manuscript, which I promptly hid in the attic after returning to the law. Another job change, this time from lawyer to B&B owner and I was again fed up and ready to scream I quit, which is incredibly difficult when you own the business. Thus, I shut the B&B during the week and in the off-season and started writing. Several books later I find myself in Istanbul writing full-time.

Review & Giveaway: Earning a Ring by Kristina Mathews

$15.00 Amazon eGift Card

More Than A Game #4
Kristina Mathews
Releasing on January 19, 2016.
Lyrical Shine

For Rachel Parker, covering the San Francisco Goliaths is the perfect opportunity to launch her career as a serious reporter. But she didn’t bargain on Bryce Baxter, the team’s star shortstop, tempting her more non-professional aspirations. After tearing up the base paths with him, she finds herself with a little problem, and Bryce might be the only man who can save the game.

Bryce Baxter should be living the dream. His team just won the World Series and he just signed the multi-year contract of his career. But his field of dreams has been overtaken by a fiery redheaded reporter, who’s bearing a news flash that will change both of their lives forever…

My Review

A romantic story set in the world of baseball, how can one not love this book? I very much enjoyed it and I loved Bryce and Rachel.
Bryce is a famous baseball player and has just signed a contract very advantageous. Rachel is a sporting reporter who is about to start a promising career. A history between them could ruin their careers, especially that of Rachel: a journalist can't flirt with an athlete. Gossip could destroy them. But the attraction and passion between them is much stronger than fear, impossible to resist and commit a serious mistake. Rachel is pregnant. Bryce has no intention of backing out. Already he has a nine year old daughter who sees a few times a year and this time he wants to be a present father. But how can save Rachel's career? Maybe he has found a way to save it, just has to convince her.
It 's really well written and engaging. The plot catch you and keeps you glued to the pages. There are really romantic scenes and a dreamy marriage proposal, I really wanted to be Rachel in that moment.
Bryce is awesome, charming, rich and famous. He has a terrible marriage ended behind him and will not commit himself more. But he realizes that without Rachel can no longer stand. Rachel loves her independence and doesn' want his money nor a shotgun wedding. She wants a father for her son and a man who loves her. They are two great characters, I loved every second I spent with them.
It's the fourth book in the series "More Than A Game" but each book may be enjoyed as a stand-alone novel.I have read only the last two books, I have to find time to go back to the beginning and read this series from the start.
I have no hesitation in recommending it highly.


Kristina Mathews doesn't remember a time when she didn't have a book in her hand. Or in her head. But it wasn't until she turned forty that she confessed the reason the laundry never made it out of the dryer was because she was busy writing.

While she resigned from teaching with the arrival of her second son, she's remained an educator in some form. As a volunteer, parent club member or para educator, she finds the most satisfaction working with emergent and developing readers, helping foster confidence and a lifelong love of books.

Kristina lives in Northern California with her husband of more than twenty years, two sons and a black lab. A veteran road tripper, amateur renovator and sports fanatic. She hopes to one day travel all 3,073 miles of Highway 50 from Sacramento, CA to Ocean City, MD, replace her carpet with hardwood floors and serve as a “Ball Dudette” for the San Francisco Giants.

This book is very well written with strong character development, a plot with twists and turns that were unexpected.
I can not wait to read the fourth book in the series, I am eagerly waiting to see what will be next for Dominic and Paige.



Excerpt from Book One

On October 2, 1980, Dominic Gianelli entered the offices of Carson, Wiehls and Fullerton. A client for only weeks now, his arrival caused a flurry of activity among the staff.  Even the most experienced members of the investment firm were on edge. Henry Carson, owner and senior partner, was nervous and unsettled, completely out of character for him, but this was no ordinary client.

Gianelli was an enigma, recognized internationally in the business world and his accumulated assets were reported to be prodigious. Little else was known about him, although his penchant for two things, accuracy and privacy, had been evinced at their first meeting.  He seemed to have come on the scene quickly, yet his profile revealed more than twenty years of steady, well-planned acquisitions and disposals.  With as many European contacts as domestic, he was well respected here in New York.  After all, one did not ignore this kind of wealth and, therefore, power.

He was a big man, six-feet, three inches in height, 270 pounds. Immaculately groomed, he had brown eyes and short, dark, slightly thinning hair combed back from his forehead.  He seemed, by nature, a rather quiet man with low tolerance for the frivolous or inept.  He had an air of confidence that was not lost on those who met him.  Gianelli was a man comfortable with himself. When he entered a room, he owned it, and he knew it.

Excerpt  from Book Two

As Paige reached the arched entryway, she hurried inside to a stall and locked the door.  Her heart was pounding.  She was fearful and didn't know why.  Those men, they had to be following her. Otherwise, why wouldn't they have gone into the men's room?  

A woman who was freshening her lipstick when Paige came in had now departed, and she supposed she was alone, but she was afraid to leave the safety of the enclosure to see.  She waited for several minutes, hoping others would come in and offer her an opportunity to exit in their company, but the area remained empty and silent.  Finally, she took a deep breath and walked out into the corridor.

They were there, on either side of the hallway, one standing perhaps fifteen feet from the other.  Keeping her head up and trying not to hurry, Paige smiled and gave a slight nod when the first man said hello.  The second man, though, stepped into her path, blocking her way.

"Mrs. Gianelli. We'd like a word with you."  He didn't smile and his tone was ominous, not at all cordial.

With a self-assurance she did not really feel, she spoke to them, her voice clear, direct.  "I'm sorry.  I don't believe I know you."

The second man, a hat pulled low on his forehead, gave out what could only be described as a snort. "We need to speak to your husband.  We know he's here, or at least he was earlier, but we can't seem to locate him now."

She was silent, trying to assess the situation.  Who were these men?

Excerpt from Book Three

Later, his sister would tell him, it all happened so quickly and it all seemed to happen at once.  She was putting Dax in his safety seat when she looked up and saw the gun wedged against Vincente’s neck.  At that moment, there was a stifled little cry from Paige and the last Isabella saw of her she was being wrested into the car parked beside them, another limousine, this one black.  Within seconds, the car had backed out and sped away. 

The man in a driver’s uniform, the cap pulled low on his forehead, still held the gun on Vincente and told Isabella, “Be very quiet. Tend to the child and no one will be harmed.  Someone will contact your brother.  After I leave, wait five minutes.  Do you understand?  Do not get out of the car and do not talk to anyone for five minutes, then you can be on your way.  Answer me, both of you.  Do you understand?”

In a whisper, “Yes, yes, we do.”  And Vincente nodded.  The man left then.

Dax was tired and was fussing. With trembling hands, Isabella found his bottle, gave it to him and the toddler leaned his head back and happily chugged at the apple juice.

She leaned forward, touching the driver’s shoulder.  “Vincente, are you all right?” 

His face was gray, but he was calm and had not lost his composure. “Close the doors.  I have to get you and the boy back to the house immediately.”
