Sandy made a choice back in 1973, one she sometimes regrets. Heritage Day Rodeo brings the past back in a huge way. Wandering into a new bar in town, Sandy receives more than a cocktail from the flame-haired barkeep. She gets some tail from a cocky cowboy from her past. Can she ask for a do-over?
“Yes, I’m Lacey.”
“There’s no lamp; who calls a bar a ‘lamp’? Don’t genies live in lamps, like the guy from Aladdin?”
“No, there is no actual lamp. There doesn’t have to be one, because I’m a genie, and I can grant you any wish you want. This bar is my lamp, so to speak.”
“Seriously? A genie?”
“So you can grant me three wishes, like in the fairy tales?”
“I can grant you one wish, but only while you stay within the bounds of this bar.” The fiery-haired genie smiled her Santa Claus smile again.
The blonde looked into the shadows gathered in the rafters of the bar, a faraway expression on her face.
“What’s your name, hon?” Lacey asked.
“What would you wish for if you could?”
“I’d wish it was 1973 again. I was nineteen in 1973, trying to figure out what I wanted out of life. Who I wanted to be.” Sandy’s voice was so quiet Lacey leaned toward her.
“There was a guy?” The genie prodded, a small smile hovering on her lips.
“Oh, yes; there was a guy. Not a good for me guy; he was romance and danger all rolled up into one. They’re right you know—mommas should never let their babies grow up to be cowboys.” Sandy blinked back the tears which threatened to spill down her cheeks.
“What else would you wish besides going back to 1973?” Lacey prompted.
“I wish it was 1973, and Ian was here with me, just like old times. Drinking and thinking about ripping those wranglers off his sexy ass.”
“As you wish.” Lacey clapped her hands.

Elixir is fantasy at its best. Katie Caroll draws us into her world with ease, her well-polished writing style and flow holding us captive until the end. I especially liked the relationship between Katora and her sister Kylene, obviously drawn from real life. I can't wait to read the sequel.
I was pleasantly surprised when I opened this very charming and witty book to read on the skytrain. But I have to say it was kind of embarrassing. I couldn't stop giggling out loud at Maggie Lyon's humour. People kept looking at me, and I tried my hardest to hold in the laughter, but it was impossible. What a delightful story! What child wouldn't love this. It's a story for 6-10 year olds. It's a great book to read to your children when they're young or by themselves when they're older. If your child likes Geronimo Stilton, they'll fall in love with Dewie the little dragon and his friend Jones the toad. I hope Maggie Lyons will turn this into a series.
Joy Smith pulled me into the story on the very first pages. Fast moving, first I hated Victor, than I love him, than I hated until I loved him. And Marisol with her guarded heart had me hoping throughout that she'd open it again to love.
I loved her descriptions. They created such visuals, I felt I was traveling and discovering Colombia with Victor.
Ms. Smith writes believable, flawed characters that I wound up cheering and caring for on each page. I can't wait to read her next book. Goodreads Reader Review - Five Stars
"...murder, mystery and intrigue..plus did I mention our hero is a witch? Tex and his best friend Olivia are brilliant characters, really well written and I love tex's dad. Can't wait to read more about tex in the future! -Amazon Reader Review
I really enjoyed the twists and turns of the plot of this novel. From Annabelle putting her life in danger when running away from Boarding School where she has lived since the age of five to her tenacious pursuit in finding clues as to her origins.
She is rescued by Roland, who is too much of a gentleman not to help the intriguing young lady. I relished the suspense of the reciprocal desire between Roland and Belle which is thwarted by misunderstanding after misunderstanding and prevents them achieving mutual fulfilment. The reader yearns for the truth to replace the false pretences and for Roland and Belle to overcome each other's prejudices.
Rosemary Morris' major and minor characters spring to life. I sympathised with Annabelle and found Roland charming. Apart from this, Rosemary's great attention to every aspect of the Regency era is impressive.
False Pretences is a ripping read and I look forward to reading this author's next novel. - F.Way- Amazon Review
