A handsome deputy who’s not looking to settle down.
A mysterious woman who’s on the run.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Of course, I’m a sucker for anything mafia (if you hadn’t noticed from my own books) so this story piqued my interest. Being from Iowa and familiar with Pella, I was pleasantly surprised of how Sheri portrayed Iowans. Naturally, we have super hot cops like Henri. He was probably my favorite part of the story and I’ll share a pizza with anytime 😉 Overall, the story was well written and kept the reader engaged. Looking forward to more from this author.

Sheri Velarde lives in New Mexico with her husband and their two dogs.
Being an avid reader since an early age, Sheri wanted to be a writer for as long as she can remember. She has been writing all her life, but only recently started to pursue her dream of writing for a living. Sheri specializes in all things paranormal and that go bump in the night. Her heart truly lies in exploring unknown worlds or adding the supernatural to our world. If it goes bump in the night or has magical connotations, Sheri writes about it. She writes everything from sweet romances to horror stories sure to scare you.
In her spare time Sheri is an artist, jewelry designer, independent comic writer/artist and freelance non-fiction writer. Hiking in the mountains, going to live concerts, art openings, museums, watching movies, playing games, and hosting intimate dinner parties.
Sheri is constantly putting out new material with various publishers, so it is best to keep up with her on her website www.authorsherivelarde.weebly.com.

Remember, Remember, it’s November

It’s my favorite time of the year again! From October to December, I love it! The hubbub, decorations, family gatherings, etc. It’s fabulous in my mind. Although, it could be because of my birthday too….. 😉
So, Appointed By Fate has been out and about for a little over a month. I’ve been to two author events (Beaverdale Books & Plain Talk Books & Coffee) and hope to sneak some more in before the end of the year. Reviews are trickling in on Amazon and Goodreads, so if you’ve read the book, but forgot to leave a review, DO IT (pretty please).
Thus far, I’ve had a plethora (yeah, that’s one of my catch phrases) of requests to spill the beans about Book 2 in The Mobster Files. Well, I can tell you this: it’s been submitted to Hot Tree Publishing and they’re reviewing it as we sip our coffee & avoid work on Monday 😉 That’s all I’m at liberty to say….right now…….

In other book news:
If you haven’t seen a calendar yet, it’s November! November means NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month)!! Basically, the goal is to write a 50k novel in one month. Crazy, I know, but I absolutely LOVE it! It’s an adrenaline rush and a panic attack at the same time. I’m about 15k into my story As Londyn Falls. If you’d like a synopsis or stalk to my progress, check out my NaNo page https://nanowrimo.org/participants/skyemcneil . I’m very excited to see where this story takes me. It’s the first of a new series. Each book will be a standalone. There may be some cross-over, but nothing that will make the books impossible to read separately.

All right, well, I should stop procrastinating and begin typing my NaNoWriMo story to get my words in for the day. I’ll leave you with a sexy teaser from Appointed By Fate 😉

Cover Reveal-Appointed By Fate

‘Appointed by Fate’ releases September 30th. Treat yourself now while it’s#halfprice

One of Iowa’s most prominent criminal attorneys, Joci Dorous is ruthless and devoid of emotion in the courtroom. It’s what makes her the best. Her most recent client allegedly committed murder and, despite a rocky start, Joci is determined to win Cameron Shearer’s case.

Since this is her first homicide, she has the support of a second-chair attorney—her ex who wants her back. To make things more complicated, her hunky cop of a booty call, Cameron’s arresting officer, isn’t quite ready to let her go either. Who knew being surrounded by three hot guys could be so deliciously exhausting?

As the mystery of the case unravels, she soon discovers the true reason behind Cameron’s impromptu visit to Iowa. It’s this knowledge that endangers all those she holds dear. Caught up in confusion, chaos, and criminal law, how will her heart survive the final verdict?
