Not like everyone doesn’t already know this, but don’t eat a bunch of cheese right before a really intense workout. YIKES! I am trying to do a pretty hard two week challenge that I found on the internet (because I feel like torturing myself) and yesterday I made it ten times harder on myself by filling up with cheese right before I started the video. I have completed four of the workouts, so I know how hard they are. By the time I finish the exercises I am usually crawling on the floor crying and dripping with sweat. My poor pups keep trying to save me after I am done working out. They have no idea why I keep jumping around the room, clapping my hands, and kicking my legs in every direction. I actually look like I am trying to summon a demon. So why did I eat so much cheese knowing it would completely derail my progress. Because it’s delicious and I am dumb. More crackers please!

WINNER of the International Thriller Writers 2021 Best Original Ebook Award, A Killing Game by Jeff Buick is a fast-paced thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat right to the last page.

Born into a wealthy and powerful Boston family, Renee Charlebois has it all. Except for one small detail – she’s been abducted without a trace. Who took her, and why, is a mystery.

The case gets dropped on Curtis Westcott’s desk, but Boston’s Chief of Homicide has little to work with. No clues, no body, no motive. Renee had no enemies, no financial skeletons in the closet, and no bitter ex- boyfriends. Curtis and Aislinn Byrne, his go-to detective on tough cases, work the file hard but come up empty. Then Westcott attends a party and overhears a story that catches his attention – he and Aislinn have their first break.

They dig in and unravel a complex series of crimes tied to Renee’s disappearance. As they peel back the layers they are convinced Renee is still alive, but that her abductor is on a precise schedule and has every intention of killing her. It’s a bizarre and twisted game, and time is quickly running out.

A Killing Game is Book One in the Curtis Westcott series, set in Boston.

Unforgettable: A Small Town Second Chance Sports Romance (Cloverleigh Farms Book 5)
by Melanie Harlow
4.7 Stars (2,381 Reviews)
Genre: Romance

FREE for a limited time

Back then, I had it all.

Wicked fastball. Killer instinct. Cocky grin. Full package.

(And believe me, I knew how to score.)

My senior year, I was a first round draft pick with a two-million-dollar signing bonus. Before I could even legally buy myself a beer, I made my Major League debut.

Point is, I was invincible.

Until one day I wasn’t.

After tanking my career — during the World Series, no less — the last thing I want to do is return to my hometown, where every jerk in a ball cap has an opinion about what went wrong with my arm. So when my sister drags me back to town for her wedding, I vow to get in and out of there as quickly as possible.

Then I run into April Sawyer.

In high school we were just friends, but I’d always wanted her, and I’d never forgotten her — the red hair, the incredible smile, the crazy, reckless thing we did in the back of my truck the night we said goodbye. It’s been eighteen years, but one look at her and I feel like my old self again. I can still make her laugh, she can still take me down a notch, and when the chemistry between us explodes, it’s even hotter this time around — and I don’t want it to end.

But just when I think I’m ready to let go of the past and get back in the game, life throws me a curveball I never saw coming.
