Today I have a book spotlight on Springback, a new Young Adult book by Jana Miller.

Springback
Ring of Time: Book 1

Author: Jana Miller
Genre: Speculative YA
Release Date: July 5th, 2019

Ever since discovering her ability to rewind time seven years ago, Chloe has been reaching—reaching for a worthy use of her ability, reaching for redemption from her past, and reaching for the kind of validation she’ll never find as long as she has to keep this secret.

By the time she’s sixteen, Chloe has decided that rewinding is not a gift at all, but punishment for her part in the tragedy that has shaped her life. And when she discovers that Jake, a careless senior in one of her classes, possesses the same ability, she has no idea what to do about it or whether she can even trust him. But then other rewinders reveal themselves, and Chloe finds that there’s much more to her own story than she’s ever imagined. 

Secrets of the past combine with rivalries of the present to set off a series of painful events and impossible discoveries, and soon Jake and Chloe find themselves in a race to piece together a puzzle of ancient relics, family feuds, and strands of time as they seek to defuse the threat not only to their powers but to her family and the fabric of time itself.

Excerpt

I asked Jake all the unanswerable questions I’d been asking myself. I wished I had pumped Leah for more information, but then she may have gotten suspicious and beaten me to the rewind.

“Well,” Jake said after I’d dumped all my questions on him, “only one way to find out.” He pulled out of the parking space and I stared at him until he explained, “You have to talk to her. Ask her.”

I swallowed. “But—but what if she’s not…on our side?”

He glanced at me before turning out of the parking lot. “Our side? Are there sides I should know about?”

“I don’t know,” I muttered. I’d started imagining evil time manipulators and crazy cults, and I was regretting never digging deeper into research about time manipulation. I had no idea if there were sides; I just knew this was weird. Maybe there was no way to prove it, but I was sure Leah had rewound me before. What could we have said in previous conversations that she didn’t want me to remember?

“Well, either way, you need to talk to her,” he said.

I sighed. “I know. But if something goes wrong, or it seems like she’s going to…do something, you’ll have to rewind.”

“Why me? I can’t go back as far as you can. And I won’t even be part of the conversation.”

“I can’t do it because I’m still in my repeat, so unless it’s later than the point where I went back from, I can’t rewind again.”

“Wait, what?”

I realized I’d rewound over the first time I’d explained this to him. “I won’t be able to access the cords again until—”

Suddenly, I was hit with a wave of vertigo as Jake let go of the steering wheel and then grabbed it again, swerving as he pulled over abruptly. He braked so hard I lurched forward and was snapped back by my seatbelt.

“Sorry!” he exclaimed wildly. “Sorry, that was really bad.”

I pressed my hand to the side of my head, a dizzy headache pounding against my temples. Too many rewinds today. “What happened? You rewound? What—?”

He pressed his forehead against the steering wheel, obviously far dizzier than I was. “I panicked. She said you’re not supposed to be able to do it.”

“Supposed to do what? Who—Leah said that?” This was trippy to say the least. It was like he’d gone forward in time without me, even though I knew he’d just done the same thing I had done today; I just didn’t remember it.

He lifted his head, eyes closed, cradling it with his hands. “Yeah. She said nobody but her family is supposed to be able to manipulate time—”

“Her family?” There was a whole family of rewinders I’d never known about?

“Actually, she said something about two families, and how only her family is supposed to do it because they were chosen.” He squeezed his eyes tighter. “Man, those cords really have a kick now. This is way worse than usual.”

“Wait, Leah said something about being chosen?”

He squinted at me. “Yeah. For the gift.”

“Like, the gift to rewind?”

“She called it pulling time, but yeah. Her family was chosen to rewind.”

I closed my eyes, thinking. “How can anyone be chosen? Wouldn’t just having the ability make us chosen?” 

Jake just laid his head back against the headrest and raised his hands and shoulders in a slow-motion kind of shrug.

 “Okay. Well, what else did she say?”

He looked over at me. “That she needs your help.”

About The Author

My six siblings and I were raised by artistic parents in mountain towns, and after surviving thirteen years in the Valley of the Sun, I now live in Colorado (my dream come true!) with my fun-loving husband and our five weird kids! I’m a work-from-home mom, editor, and now author. Until this year, writing a novel has always been in my top three “pie in the sky” dreams—along with running a marathon and being in a Broadway musical, which I don’t actually expect to ever happen.

I love art, decorating, chocolate, theater, words, trees, photography, and the ocean. Occasionally I make music videos with my sisters or my kids, but most of the time I can be found cleaning my house (or avoiding cleaning it), driving kids around, or watching The Great British Baking Show and then baking brownies.

About Cassy and the Un-Happy Happy

Cassy and the Un-happy happy

Everyone feels sad sometimes. And that’s okay! 

When Cassy and a Happy named Wink are bullied by a mischievous Wind Spirit, their fun day of playing with blocks soon becomes a race to save their happiness. 

Wink quickly turns from gleeful to gloomy and Cassy seeks out the help of her friends. But when things don’t go according to plan, Cassy must learn that trying to make someone happy, isn’t always the best way to help. Sometimes, it’s okay to just be sad. 

This simple, yet powerful story illustrates the importance of facing our sadness, and learning to embrace it, rather than erase it. Wonderfully illustrated, and told at an easy to read pace, this book will teach young readers and adults alike how to pay attention to their sadness and give their happiness some time to rest. Through the example of a kitten and her Happy, we can learn that allowing ourselves time to cry, may just be the secret to feeling true joy.

My review

I like getting to read cute kids books that teach them something. The way this book used Cassy and her Happy to teach kids that it’s okay if you’re not happy all the time was so cute! I also liked the way the story shows that sometimes you can try your best to be happy, but you just need a rest. And that’s okay.

This book has cute pictures, and a cute plot. Kids -and adults – will be entranced as they read about Cassy, Her happy and all the cute animals that they come across on their journey to try to fix her Happy.

I was sent an e-copy of Cassy and the Un-Happy Happy as a gift from the author. All opinions are my own.

My review

If you love to read suspense novels, you’re going to love books by Clair M Poulson. I love the way this author writes. His books are always full of suspense, with great characters. They are some of my very favorites.

This one has several main characters. I love the way this author switches between points of view. There are points of view from the good guys and the bad guys. It just makes it so the reader understands everything that’s going on. I loved that!

The plot of this book is fast paced. I loved the way that kept me interested in what was going to happen until the very end. And I really loved the way I had no idea who the killer was until it was revealed at the end.

This one is such a great suspense novel! I didn’t want to put it down.

About The Lady in the Coppergate Tower

the lady in the coppergate tower

Hazel Hughes believes there is nothing remarkable about her, not even her strange ability to heal the sick and injured. Her employer, Doctor Sam MacInnes recognizes her special talent, but because of the difference in their social status, he can’t tell her how much he admires her. When a mysterious count arrives in London and reveals to Hazel the existence of a twin sister, she agrees to accompany him to the wilds of Romania, where she learns that her healing skills are needed to save her twin’s life. Worried for her safety, Sam insists on traveling with her.

Faced with dark magic, malfunctioning automatons, and dangerous magical artifacts, Hazel and Sam learn to rely on each other as they untangle a deadly web of mystery surrounding the count and search for a way to free Hazel’s sister from the cursed walls of the Coppergate Tower before time runs out on all of them.

My review

Anytime there’s a new Proper Romance out, you can bet I’m going to read it. And even more so these Steampunk romances by Nancy Campbell Allen, I LOVE them! This one is amazing. It’s based on the Rapunzel story. I loved the way the author took this fairy tale and added Steampunk elements.

This one features Hazel and Sam. Hazel is Sam’s medical assistant. She seems to have a special ability to heal those she comes in contact with. That makes her a perfect assistant for Sam. But because he is her boss, Sam feels like Hazel is off limits for him to date or even dance with at balls. I loved these two main characters. Hazel is a strong woman, she works hard to not need protection. And she’s smart too. But everyone knows that everybody needs some help sometimes. And Sam is always there to help. These two make a great team!

The plot of this one kept me wanting to read more and more. I loved all of the little touches, the ‘ton named Eugene, the dreams that Hazel had, the ship they traveled on to Romania, Hazel’s crazy uncle. All of these things made the story fun. But it was the twists and turns in the plot that kept me interested. The story wasn’t at all what I expected, it was better!

I can’t wait for more of these Steampunk romance novels! They’re amazing!

About Out of Liberty

Out of Liberty

Winter 1839. LIBERTY, MISSOURI. Local jailer, Samuel Tillery (Jasen Wade) is tasked with watching Missouri’s most wanted men as they await their upcoming hearing. Caught between the local Missourians’ increased drive to remove the prisoners, and the prisoners’ desperate efforts to survive, Tillery is pushed beyond what any lawman can endure. Based on actual recorded accounts, Out of Liberty is an intense, evocative western, with an outcome you have to see to believe.

Q & A with Director Garrett Batty

Where did the concept come from for Out of Liberty?

I love a good Western, and I’ve wanted to do one for a while. The events at Liberty Jail involve a triangle of conflict between the jailer, the mob and the prisoners.  It seemed like an intriguing plot to explore.  Amidst some of the better known occurances were attempted jailbreaks, repeated appeals to the legal system and an impromptu court hearing.  With 1830’s Missouri as a setting, it’s the perfect backdrop for a powerful western.

What most surprised you in the making of this film?

One of the surprises along they way was how dedicated and committed the cast and crew were to telling this story.  One example of this is with the character of Caleb Baldwin played by Adam Johnson.  I’ve been friends with Adam Johnson for years, and have loved watching him in everything from CHARLY to The Outpost on The CW.  He was gracious enough to come do this movie as a favor for me.  I anticipated he would show up, deliver a good performance, keep the set fun, and be on to the next project.  But Adam surprised me.  He brought a performance that gave a level of humanity and depth that turned Caleb Baldwin into a real person for me.  It was humbling, inspiring, and it has stuck with me.  Every actor gave  their all, and it shows on screen.  It was really quite a nice surprise to have that caliber of talent on this film.

How long did it take to film your movie?

 We filmed OUT OF LIBERTY in November, 2018.

One fun story – I was holding auditions, and was surprised when Jasen Wade showed up to audition.  We had never worked together, and it was an honor to have him audition.  He read for a role and did a great job.  But I felt I should ask him to read the part of the jailer, Samuel Tillery.  He looked a little disheartened, but agreed to read for the part.  He was perfect for it!  About a week later, we offered him the part and he graciously accepted.  I asked him to make some time for a call so that we could discuss his approach to the character.  As we discussed the character, he paused for a minute, then said “Wait a minute… I’m just playing the jailer, right?”  He was shocked to find out that the jailer was the protagonist of the film.  He was expecting it to be just a small supporting role.

The other side of heaven 2

I loved The Other Side of Heaven 2. I’m so glad to see that it’s doing so well in theaters. Make sure to go see it if you haven’t yet!

IN A MIRACULOUS FEAT

THE OTHER SIDE OF HEAVEN 2 INCREASES

ITS BOX OFFICE 86% IN WEEK SIX

In an unprecedented movie industry success, The Other Side of Heaven 2: Fire of Faith, increased its per showtime average 86% inside Utah Megaplex theaters in week six of its release after having already increased its performance 33% in week five from week four.

“This is just an indication of how much people like the movie,” said the film’s director and producer, Mitch Davis.  “And people in Utah are finally waking up to the fact it won’t be in theaters forever.”

Davis cited the adversity his faith-promoting, indie film has had to overcome competing with five Disney blockbusters in a row to survive at the box office and called his movie’s Utah success “a modern day movie miracle.”

“I used to work for Disney but right now it’s pretty hard not to hate those guys,” Davis quipped, explaining his film had to compete for theater screens with Aladdin, Toy Story 4, the re-release of Avengers: End Game, the new Spiderman and, most recently, Lion King.

“I mean, seriously, it has been hand to hand combat trying to book and hold screens against those big movies,” Davis said. 

Davis had special praise for regional theater chain, Megaplex Theatres, and its longtime head of programming, Cal Gundersen, for helping The Other Side of Heaven 2 perform well.

“It’s great when you have partners like Cal wanting you to succeed,” Davis praised.  “Him and everyone else at Megaplex down to the theater managers.  They are all pulling for you and you feel it.”

Elder John H. Groberg, whose story this sequel and its predecessor tell, seconded Davis’s sentiments about the support of local theaters.

“Jean and I have visited several theaters the last few weeks and have been treated with kindness and generosity,” Groberg said.  “There is something special about this film and the experience of seeing it inside a theater.  I sincerely hope many others will make the effort to go and experience the same thing before the movie is gone from theaters.”

About A Lady’s Maid

a lady's maid

Molly O’Malley, lady’s maid to the progressive Lady Amanda Halloway, is determined to continue the life’s work of her lost love, killed in the Peterloo Massacre. But when her efforts and a trip to Lady Halloway’s charitable orphanage culminate in her own abduction, Molly’s eyes are opened to the horrifying crimes transpiring in the city’s slums. Despite the risks, she broadens her mission and is drawn ever closer to the peril all around them.

Thomas Flaherty, a footman in the Halloway household, has been with Molly from the beginning, but he fears she will never trust him with her heart. Even though her cause and happiness are of foremost importance to him, his loyal patience is tested by the fears that keep her at a distance. But with their safety on the line, Thomas is resolved to sacrifice everything for the woman he loves.

Risking their lives and their love, Molly and Thomas and a team of nobles on their side will stop at nothing to empower the powerless, no matter the personal cost.

My review

I love reading a good historical romance novel. And Jen Geigle Johnson is one of my favorite authors who writes this type of book. I love the way she writes. Her characters are fantastic and I love the worlds she makes around her characters.

This one features Molly. She’s Lady Amanda’s personal maid. We were introduced to Lady Amanda in The Nobleman’s Daughter. I love the way the book opens with her on her way to do something she knew she would be arrested for, but it was also something she believed in. Molly and Lady Amanda both work hard on the suffrage movement in England, and that’s what Molly was trying to help in the first chapter. It was kind of ironic how she was found and let in on the fact that she was not going to be arrested that day by Thomas.

Thomas…the reader doesn’t see any of the story from Thomas’ point of view. But through Molly’s eyes, it’s obvious that Thomas is a good man. He is always watching out for Molly. And he knows that she isn’t quite ready for a relationship with anyone because she’s still hurting. But he waits. He worries incessantly about her and about the orphanage children they help. Thomas and Molly are two of a kind. They both work hard to make things happen, even when they might be causing danger for themselves.

I loved the way this book is set in the middle of something that really did happen. The author included real events and places in her novel. I loved the way there was danger around nearly every corner and the reader knew who the characters needed to watch out for even though the characters didn’t. There were many times I wanted to yell at the characters to watch out. But…that doesn’t really work.

There are so many good things about this one. I can’t wait for more of Jen Geigle Johnson’s books!

About Once Again in Christmas Falls

Once again in Christmas falls

In one day, London Walsh finds out her ex is going to be her boss and that her parents are getting a divorce—and they want her to referee the situation. So when she’s offered the chance to spend the holidays in her old hometown of Christmas Falls, far away from all the drama, she jumps on it.

But the quaint town doesn’t feel quite like the home it once was. London shed the goth image that defined her in high school long ago, but no one recognizes the woman she’s become.

Except for Andy Broll, London’s childhood next door neighbor. He recognizes her immediately, which sends London’s heart fluttering as she starts to see Andy in a whole different light. But when her time in Christmas Falls doesn’t go as planned, will London face it head on? Or will she find a reason to run?

My review

I’m glad that I got to read this one so soon after I read Honeymoon for One. The books kind of parallel each other in the time period they’re written. This one is about Piper’s best childhood friend, London.

I loved the way London seems so down to earth. She has a lot going on in her life. Like all of us, sometimes you just need a break from your crazy co-workers and family. And she takes one. She heads to Christmas Falls, where she grew up. Something that was a little ironic about that was that very few people recognize London on sight. She feels even more alone. And then she finds Andy again.

Andy is a great guy. He goes out of his way to do kind things for London. Even going so far as to get her and Piper back together after a huge fight they had the last time they’d seen each other. Andy’s family made me smile too. Things like insisting his door stay open at their house, even though he’s an adult were just kind of funny.

I loved the whole Christmas feel of this one. The town of Christmas Falls is just a fun place. And the characters make me smile. They work hard together to make sure they don’t lose a big part of their community. It seems like a great place to live.

If you like Christmas romance, this is a great choice!

Honeymoon for One

About Honeymoon for One

Is there room for two on this honeymoon for one?

Piper Wyatt’s Christmas wish is to get promoted to manager at Blackstock Hotel and Resort. Not only does the promotion mean more money, but it means more time with her son and proof that she’s not such a disappointment after all.

Jace Petersen, successful owner of a national chain of sporting goods stores, finds himself alone and miserable on what should have been his honeymoon. That is until he literally falls onto the lovely Piper Wyatt. He’s intrigued with this woman who can fix a car in high heels. Too bad for him, he makes a horrible first impression, and Piper’s not allowed to mingle with the guests.

While Piper tries her best to steer clear of Jace during his stay, she can’t help but notice he’s not the man from their first meeting. But is he worth risking her promotion? Or is Jace right, Piper deserves more than she ever thought possible for herself?

Find out in this charming Christmas tale about finding love in the most unexpected place, a honeymoon.

My review

Sometimes you just need a book that’s an escape. It helps you escape reality for a little bit. It just helps to clear your head. This was one of those books for me. And I loved every bit of it!

This whole book is from the point of view of Piper. The author did a really great job of making her a character that I liked. Piper had sass, she was a woman willing to change her own alternator, in heels I might add. She is also a working, single mother who just wants what’s best for her son. I loved everything about her.

The way she met Jace might be my very favorite thing about this book. He shows up on his honeymoon, by himself. He’s a bit drunk. And he falls on Piper. Such a great beginning. Jace’s character really grew on me in this book. I loved the care he took for Piper, her job and her son. He really went out of his way for her. That was just sweet.

The plot of this one is just great! It was a perfect afternoon escape for me. And I didn’t want to stop reading this one until I’d read every word. This one is a great one!

I borrowed Honeymoon for One from the Kindle Unlimited Library.
