A Case of Extreme Mistaken Identity

 Ms. Lieske has put together another wonderful romantic comedy with heart. 

Characters with baggage. Billionaires homeless and cleaning toilets. Plus a sinsiter stalker. Excellent recipe for a page turning romance that will have you wondering if Danica and Austin will end up together. 

Get ready for crazy fun. Ms. Lieske has done it again. 


Some mistakes are meant to happen.

When Danica Jordan, daughter of the famous actor Samuel Jordan, gets involved in yet another horrible scandal, her father cuts her off, leaving her stranded and forced to get a—gasp!—CLEANING JOB. If that isn’t bad enough, someone keeps leaking photos of her to the paparazzi. All Dani wants to do is disappear.

Famous football star Austin Scott is staying at the Billionaire Club to recuperate from an injury. When Danica mistakes him for a maintenance man, he doesn’t correct her. He really doesn’t even want to talk to her, but she’s in a bad spot and he ends up helping her. The more time he spends with her, the more he falls for her. Except, she still thinks he’s the maintenance man.

Sometimes the truth is better left alone. That is, until it all comes crashing down around you.

This is a clean romantic comedy full of laughs and love. Grab your copy today!

Hawaii Ever After

Enjoy escaping to a beautful island of Hawaii in this sweet tale. 

Ms. Christensen has crafted a lovely tale between Gracie and Pika, a ballerina and a native Hawaiian coconut cutter. As the story goes, we learn that both are more than what they start out as and together they can help fulfill each other's dreams. 

Naturally there's a bit of internal and external conflict to keep the story interesting. And the backdrop is stunning. You'll feel like you're there enjoying the sights with them.

A lovely beach read. 


A ballet dancer at the end of her career.

A handsome Hawaiian who chops coconuts for a living.

Their two worlds collide with a smoldering kiss, but is the chemistry enough to overlook their differences?

Gracie Cardulo has performed for the New York ballet for over a decade, but her body can’t keep up with the rigorous demands of dance anymore. She arrives on the isle of Kauai for her billionaire best friend’s wedding to consider new job options and ends up dancing with the best man, Pika Sepe. The entire island is filled with romance when she’s with the handsome Hawaiian, but can she truly be happy without dance?

Pika has always worked a blue-collar job and most of the time barely makes ends meet. When Gracie dances into his life, she inspires him to go after his dreams of taking tourists on island adventures. In between deep-sea fishing, sweet kisses, and hikes along the Na’ pali coast, Gracie and Pika each find something they were missing.

When Pika’s ex-girlfriend stirs up trouble, Pika and Gracie must dig deep to find out if their love is meant to be. Can they hold together when people keep trying to pull them apart? Will their love last beyond the beautiful island sunset, or fade into the deep waters of doubt?

Anxious People

I read this for book club or I probably wouldn't have picked it up. 

I had a rough start with the unusual style of this book. Mainly because it breaks all the rules of writing. I got 100 pages in, and then gave up. 
But after book club and learning more of the story, I decided to give it another try. 
I finished the book. 

It's a well woven tale, if a bit circuitous, but that is to keep the tension going and the reader turning pages. 

Looking at real estate isn’t usually a life-or-death situation, but an apartment open house becomes just that when a failed bank robber bursts in and takes a group of strangers hostage. The captives include a recently retired couple who relentlessly hunt down fixer-uppers to avoid the painful truth that they can’t fix their own marriage. There’s a wealthy bank director who has been too busy to care about anyone else and a young couple who are about to have their first child but can’t seem to agree on anything, from where they want to live to how they met in the first place. Add to the mix an eighty-seven-year-old woman who has lived long enough not to be afraid of someone waving a gun in her face, a flustered but still-ready-to-make-a-deal real estate agent, and a mystery man who has locked himself in the apartment’s only bathroom, and you’ve got the worst group of hostages in the world. 

Each of them carries a lifetime of grievances, hurts, secrets, and passions that are ready to boil over. None of them is entirely who they appear to be. And all of them — the bank robber included — desperately crave some sort of rescue. 

As the authorities and the media surround the premises these reluctant allies will reveal surprising truths about themselves and set in motion a chain of events so unexpected that even they can hardly explain what happens next. Rich with Fredrik Backman’s “pitch-perfect dialogue and an unparalleled understanding of human nature” (Shelf Awareness), Anxious People is an ingeniously constructed story about the enduring power of friendship, forgiveness, and hope — the things that save us, even in the most anxious times.
