Fuzzy Findz, My Fuzzy View

My View Fuzzy: Blackberry Summer by RaeAnne Thayne

blackberrysummercover

The small town of Hope’s Crossing, Colorado seems like the best place to start over from being an undercover cop. Riley McKnight believes the same thing, which is why he takes the Chief of Police job in his hometown. His past behaviors are still haunting him and others still judge him but not Claire. She owns the beads store that is robbed which brings Riley and her face to face again.

Both with past crushes on each other that sparks present attractions, which both try to fight it. When Claire is in a car accident the community rally’s around to help her especially Riley. Tragedy brings down the thief, but sadness follows this small community especially because Riley’s family feels the impact. Claire knows her mother and ex-husband are against her getting close to Riley but she can’t help it. She is grown and has the last say. Will her decision back fire?

This was a wonderful story of a community’s inspiration and coming back together. This book had well-developed characters as well as storyline with just enough of romance. I also liked the mystery behind the Angel of Hope performing wonderful acts of kindness. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.

Fuzzy Findz: Girls in Trucks by Katie Crouch

girl-in-trucks

My first Fuzzy Findz of September is a deal of a book, I purchased from Half Price Books. I can never pass up their percentage off sales. I also got this book because it reminds me of why I never joined any sidity sororities or socialite clubs.

Character

I really related to the main character, Sarah Walters. She is a fun character who wants to be a Carmellias and enjoy her privileged life. The Carmellias is a socialite group of the wealthy and is important to be asked to join. Carmellias are women of many generations so it is a big deal if you are a part of the group. What makes me love Sarah’s character is that she has a tendency to make decisions that are out of the norm. She also not always polite about what she is doing, saying or her views.

View

This book starts with a young Sarah and carries you through to adulthood. It takes you on a journey where as the reader, I was able to learn as the main character you can never shake the environment you were raised in. Everyone you encounter and everything you do will affect you in every aspect of your life. It was great to discover this as Sarah starts realizing it as the story unfolds.

Therefore, Girls in Trucks by Katie Crouch is my first fuzzy findz for September. I will be sharing the second fuzzy findz later this month. Stay tune!

In My Fuzzy Neighborhood Interview with Nigeria Lockley

Lockley_author photo

In My Fuzzy Neighborhood today is Author Nigeria Lockley. She is the owner of Inheritance Books, an independent Christian publishing company that seeks to present content that will edify and entertain. Lockley possesses two Master’s degrees from the City College of New York, one in English Secondary Education, which she utilizes as an educator with the New York City Department of Education. Her second Master’s degree is in Creative Writing. She serves as the Vice President of Bridges Family Services a not-for-profit organization that assists student parents interested in pursuing a degree in higher education. She is also the deaconess and clerk for her spiritual home King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Church of God. Nigeria is a New York native who resides in Harlem with her husband and two daughters.

Let’s get to know a little bit more about Nigeria Lockley:

FF: Can you tell us four words that describe your writing style?

NL: Raw, Riveting, Poetical, and Powerful.

FF: Do you have a writing process? If yes, briefly explain.

NL: Not really. I am all over the place. I work differently for each project. Both my first novel, Born at Dawn and my last book, Tempted to Touch were written entirely long hand.

FF: Why do you write books?

NL: If I didn’t I’d be classified as crazy. LOL. Now seriously, I write because I love it. The words call to me from dusk til dawn.

FF: What genre do you write in? Which genre is your favorite?

NL: I write Christian Fiction and I would say besides Christian Fiction I am a lover of poetry, literature, and plays.

FF: Describe your ideal place of escape to write your books.

NL: I don’t have an ideal place. As a multitasking mama I learned how to do things on the go. I wrote more than half of my second book on cell phone riding the subway to work.

FF: Tell us about your current book.

Lockley_Tempted to Touch_Cover

NL: My current book, Tempted to Touch tackles a marriage on the rocks. It takes a slightly untraditional look at temptation and adultery because this time it’s the wife struggling with it. Most often in Christian Fiction we see a marriage after the husband steps out and the wife has to decide if she’s going to forgive him or the wife has stepped out and is now carrying the scarlet letter baby. Things don’t exactly go that way in Tempted to Touch.

Fun Facts

FF: What is your favorite thing to do before a book signing?

NL: Go shopping.

FF: What city would you love to have a book signing or speaking engagement?

NL: I’d love to have a book signing or speaking engagement in Atlanta.

FF: What is your favorite drink or beverage?

NL: Coffee. We have a longstanding love affair.

FF: Are you a early bird or night owl?

NL: Hoot. Hoot. Night owl.

FF: If you could collaborate on a book with any author, who would it be and why?

NL: I’d love to collaborate with Unoma Nwankwor. She is my writer bestie and our characters live in two different worlds, so I’d love to see them collide. Her African spice plus my Harlem grit plus the Holy Ghost and a dash of romance could only equal a crazy page turner from the throne of heaven.

FF: What is one tip you would give authors on how to show appreciation for their readers?

NL: Thank you goes a long way. Tag them and root for them when you have the opportunity to and readers love gift cards.

Getting Serious

FF: What advice would you give your younger self?

NL: Serve God. Point blank. Period. The moment I began serving God so many doors opened up to me. I just wasted twenty-something years.

FF: What is one thing you would change about your life?

NL: I would like transition into full-time writing, coaching, and speaking.

FF: What is your motto for life and career?

NL: GO HARD. Even when you don’t feel like it GO HARD.

FF: What is your favorite scripture or quote?

NL: My current favorite scripture is: The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands. Ps. 138:8

However in another life, it will be a beach front villa where the waves of the ocean will serve as my white noise. Funny, I think I’m one of the rare group of writers that can’t write in silence.

HCMN (RGB) (2)FF: Tell us about your current book.

UN: My book He Changed My Name was released in February 2016. It tells the story of an unlikely pair. An embattled pop star, Ayanti and a pastor Mensah. The couple meet when the Ayanti is sentenced to community service in the Mensah’s church. He helps her through her issues of un-forgiveness and hopelessness while she opens his heart to the amazing possibilities of finding love in unlikely places.

UN: Gifts, thank you cards  and birthday shout outs especially when they are unexpected.

FF: What is your motto for life and career?

UN: I’ll never be able to give 100% in all areas of my life at the same time. I have long laid down that expectation. My motto is not to allow any one area to suffer for too long. As a wife, mom, author, career woman and entrepreneur. All areas will not get 100% of me at all times but my goal is not to allow any specific area to suffer too long.

FF: What is your favorite scripture or quote?

UN: My favorite quote is one by Laurel Bleadon-Maffei “I found my heart upon a mountain I did not know I could climb, and I wonder how many other pieces of myself are secreted away in places I judge I cannot go.”

All Things Women Fiction: Three Women Fiction Books Worth Reading

I love suggesting and discussing books in genres I care about and believe avid readers will enjoy.  In All Things Women Fiction this month, I am sharing my three women fiction picks worth reading. This month I am featuring books written by Kim Boykin. I absolutely love the setting of her books, the hint of drama and the unforgettable characters. I enjoyed being on the journey reading how these women Nettie Gilbert, Vada Hadley and Zora Adams dealt with the obstacles in their lives. Here are my Kim Boykin picks for July:

A Peach of a Pair

a peach

March, 1953. Nettie Gilbert has cherished her time studying to be a music teacher at Columbia College in South Carolina, but as graduation approaches, she can’t wait to return to her family—and her childhood sweetheart, Brooks—in Alabama. But just days before her senior recital, she gets a letter from her mama telling her that Brooks is getting married . . . to her own sister.

Devastated, Nettie drops out of school and takes a job as live-in help for two old-maid sisters, Emily and Lurleen Eldridge. Emily is fiercely protective of the ailing Lurleen, but their sisterhood has weathered many storms. And as Nettie learns more about their lives on a trip to see a faith healer halfway across the country, she’ll discover that love and forgiveness will one day lead her home . . .

A Palmetto Moon

palmetto

June, 1947. Charleston is poised to celebrate the biggest wedding in high-society history, the joining of two of the oldest families in the city. Except the bride is nowhere to be found…

Unlike the rest of the debs she grew up with, Vada Hadley doesn’t see marrying Justin McLeod as a blessing—she sees it as a life sentence. So when she finds herself one day away from a wedding she doesn’t want, she’s left with no choice but to run away from the future her parents have so carefully planned for her.

In Round O, South Carolina, Vada finds independence in the unexpected friendships she forms at the boarding house where she stays, and a quiet yet fulfilling courtship with the local diner owner, Frank Darling. For the first time in her life, she finally feels like she’s where she’s meant to be. But when her dear friend Darby hunts her down, needing help, Vada will have to confront the life she gave up—and decide where her heart truly belongs.

The Wisdom of Hair

hair

“The problem with cutting your own hair is that once you start, you just keep cutting, trying to fix it, and the truth is, some things can never be fixed. The day of my daddy’s funeral, I cut my bangs until they were the length of those little paintbrushes that come with dime-store watercolor sets. I was nine years old. People asked me why I did it, but I was too young then to know I was changing my hair because I wanted to change my life.”

In 1983, on her nineteenth birthday, Zora Adams finally says goodbye to her alcoholic mother and their tiny town in the mountains of South Carolina. Living with a woman who dresses like Judy Garland and brings home a different man each night is not a pretty existence, and Zora is ready for life to be beautiful.

With the help of a beloved teacher, she moves to a coastal town and enrolls in the Davenport School of Beauty. Under the tutelage of Mrs. Cathcart, she learns the art of fixing hair, and becomes fast friends with the lively Sara Jane Farquhar, a natural hair stylist. She also falls hard for handsome young widower Winston Sawyer, who is drowning his grief in bourbon. She couldn’t save Mama, but maybe she can save him.

As Zora practices finger waves, updos, and spit curls, she also comes to learn that few things are permanent in this life–except real love, lasting friendship, and, ultimately… forgiveness.

In My Fuzzy Neighborhood: Author Emily Liebert

emily

After college, Emily landed her first job as an Executive Assistant at ABC News, where she honed her organizational skills and helped produce television specials for Peter Jennings Reporting. To this day, she is a whiz with “To Do” lists.

Since childhood, Emily’s had a passion for writing, so when the opportunity to become Editor-in-Chief of The WAG—a luxury lifestyle magazine covering Westchester and Fairfield Counties—presented itself, she jumped at the chance. During Emily’s five-year tenure, she wrote hundreds of articles, including celebrity profiles, travel, fashion, and beauty.

Ready for her next adventure, Emily became a full-time freelance writer, penning lifestyle pieces for media outlets such as, The Huffington Post, Oprah.com, Elite Traveler, Robb Report, Gotham, and Cottages & Gardens.

In 2009, Emily edited Kerry Kennedy’s New York Times bestseller Being Catholic Now: Prominent Americans Talk About Change in the Church and the Quest for Meaning.

The following year, Emily published her first book, Facebook Fairytales, which was featured at the 2010 Frankfurt Book Fair, and Emily was one of 20 guests of honor—among Elizabeth Kostova, Russell Banks, and Lisa See—at the renowned Literary Feast 2010, a privilege reserved for best-selling and buzz-worthy authors.

And she does a mean Running Man on the dance floor. Emily lives with her husband, Lewis, and their two delicious little boys, Jax and Hugo, in Westport, CT where she moved kicking and screaming for fear that there would be no Chinese food delivery at three in the morning. She was right.

Let’s get to know a little more about Emily Liebert:

FF: Can you tell us four words that describe your writing style?

EL: Modern, concise, funny, strong voice (sorry five words)

FF: Do you have a writing process? If yes, briefly explain. 

EL: I typically write between the hours of 11am and 2pm (while my kids are at school or camp), take a break to concentrate on emails, publicity and so on, and then I edit that day’s work sometime after 4pm but before 6pm. I always write in my home office. I have the ability to tune out a lot.

FF: Why do you write books?

EL: Because I have a lot to say. And sometimes it’s easier than talking. Characters bud and develop in my mind and I feel compelled to explore them on the page.

FF: Describe your ideal place of escape to write your books.

EL: I don’t escape to write my books. I like to be in my home environment with everything at my fingertips. I’m a creature of habit.

FF: Tell us about your current book.

EL: SOME WOMEN is a thought provoking novel that examines the intricacies of marriage, friendship, and the power of unexpected connections. On the surface, the three leading ladies may not have much in common. Yet when their lives are thrust together and unlikely friendships are formed—at a time when they all need someone to lean on—Annabel, Piper, and Mackenzie band together to help each other navigate their new realities.

FF: Tell us a little about Annabel, Piper and Mackenzie.

EL: Annabel is someone who has everything under control. She devotes her time to her twin five-year-old boys and to keeps her household running seamlessly. So when her husband of a decade announces that he’s leaving her, without warning, she’s blindsided. And suddenly her world begins to unravel.

Piper is a single mom and has always done her best to balance it all—raising her daughter Fern by herself and advancing her career as a crime reporter. Only now that she’s finally met the man of her dreams, Fern’s absentee father arrives on the scene and throws everything into a tailspin.

Mackenzie is married to the heir of a thriving media conglomerate. She has many reasons to count her blessings. But with an imperious mother-in-law—who’s also her boss—and a husband with whom she can no longer seem to connect, something has to give.

Fun Facts

FF: What is your favorite thing to do before a book signing?

EL: Eat! I need my fuel. If it’s at a bookstore, I love to browse the other titles and the cookbooks!

FF: What city would you love to have a book signing or speaking engagement?

EL: Paris, especially if someone else is footing the bill.

FF: What is your favorite drink or beverage?

EL: I love a spicy Bloody Mary with three olives.

FF: Are you a early bird or night owl?

EL: Neither. I need at least eight hours of sleep a night, otherwise I’m a maniac. Ideal wake-up time would be 8:30am. Ideal bed time would be 10pm.

FF: If you could collaborate on a book with any author, who would it be and why?

EL: I could never collaborate on a work of fiction. But I’d jump at the chance to collaborate on a cookbook with Bobby Flay. Hello? Bobby? (P.S. I do not have the credentials to write a cookbook.)

FF: What is one tip you would give authors on how to show appreciation for their readers?

EL: Reply to them! I answer every message, every Facebook post, and every tweet. I also collaborate with brands to offer my readers fun giveaways. For example, for SOME WOMEN, Gerard Cosmetics created a lip gloss collection named after my book and characters. All of my readers who pre-ordered and many who ordered within the first month received the collection when they bought the book.

Getting Serious

FF: What advice would you give your younger self?

EL: Be patient. Everything will come. Oh, and never ever cut bangs.

EL: I’d try to relax more. If that was humanly possible for me.

FF: What is your motto for life and career?

EL: I don’t believe in mottos.

FF: What is your favorite scripture or quote?

EL: “As time went on, and the months and years came and went, he was never without friends.” It’s from my favorite book Charlotte’s Web. The quote is in SOME WOMEN, which has a number of references to Charlotte’s Web. I love it because my closest friends are like family to me. They inspire me every day.

some-women

An engrossing and thought provoking novel that examines the intricacies of marriage, friendship, and the power of unexpected connections…

Annabel Ford has everything under control, devoting her time to her twin five-year-old boys and to keeping her household running seamlessly. So when her husband of a decade announces that he’s leaving her, without warning, she’s blindsided. And suddenly her world begins to unravel.

Single mother Piper Whitley has always done her best to balance it all—raising her daughter Fern by herself and advancing her career as a crime reporter. Only now that she’s finally met the man of her dreams, Fern’s absentee father arrives on the scene and throws everything into a tailspin.

Married to the heir of a thriving media conglomerate, Mackenzie Mead has many reasons to count her blessings. But with an imperious mother-in-law—who’s also her boss—and a husband with whom she can no longer seem to connect, something has to give.

On the surface, these three women may not have much in common. Yet when their lives are thrust together and unlikely friendships are formed—at a time when they all need someone to lean on—Annabel, Piper, and Mackenzie band together to help each other navigate their new realities.

Fuzzy Findz

My Fuzzy Findz: Hidden Riches by Felicia Mason

hidden

Purchase at Amazon.com

The cover of this book makes me wonder what riches are hidden and if the woman is holding all the cards to it. It is also the reason along with the synopsis that made me buy it. Hidden Riches is about bringing out the true color of three siblings once their eldest sibling dies.

Characters

Ana Mae Futrell, the eldest of the Futrell children has passed away causing her remaining siblings to return to North Carolina. Ana Mae is certain her two sisters and brother never made an effort to get to know her. She is able to turn the tables by leaving clues in a blanket sort of like her will.

Mary Coston, Marquerite Foster and Clayton Futrell all have the same thing in common, none of them really knew their sister Ana Mae. When they go back to their hometown to bury their sister the fortune she has left comes with stipulations.

View

As a reader, it was wonderful getting to know these characters. I enjoyed the clues in the quilt causing the siblings to come together, which ultimately made them learn more about themselves and their sister. This book was about family and working through their issues, but also made me want to call my family members just to check in.

Therefore, Hidden Riches by Felicia Mason is my fuzzy findz for July. I will be sharing my new fuzzy findz next month. Stay Tune!

My Fuzzy View

My Fuzzy View of The Good Neighbor by Amy Sue Nathan

good neighbor

Amy Sue Nathan is a women’s fiction writer that host Women’s Fiction Writers blog and the reason I picked the Good Neighbor to read. The character Izzy Lane tries to save face when her ex-husband Bruce brings his new girl friend to pick up their son. Izzy is trying to get over the break up hence the move back to her childhood home. Izzy decides to create her own boyfriend to show Bruce she has moved on.

Izzy starts blogging about her new beau, Mac which gets the attention of everyone including her friends Jade, Rachel and neighbor, Mrs. Feldman. Everyone wants to meet Mac especially since Izzy is being offer a huge opportunity that will help her and her son, Noah since his father is not coming through financially. As the story continues, Izzy finds out that someone suspects she is lying and wants to expose her. Izzy soon realizes she can lose everything even a real man whom she finds interesting.

The Good Neighbor brings an element of wisdom from Mrs. Feldman and an element of stretching the truth and consequences with Izzy. Just when you think the character will come clean the more something or someone interrupts the path. Amy Sue Nathan has written a compelling story of acceptance and forgiveness. Nathan also provides characters that will frustrate you (Bruce), share knowledge (Mrs. Feldman), tell you right from wrong (Rachel) and support you even though you’ve done wrong (Jade), which makes for a captivating book. I will definitely pick up another book by this author. If you love books about friendship than The Good Neighbor is the book for you.
