Come and Meet Beth Hale! Rave Reviews Book Club Bethany Turner Pay It Forward Week by Nancy M Bell

Welcome! Today the spotlight is on Beth Hale.

About Beth Hale

Beth Hale grew up on a small farm on the Tennessee / Mississippi line. While she no longer lives on the farm, she does live in a small Mississippi town with her real-life hero, Nathan, and their two amazing children, Clay and Lily. By night, Beth works as an E-911 dispatcher. She loves her job but writing is her real passion. When she's not planted in her dispatch chair, you can usually find her at home, putting her characters' lives down on paper. She enjoys coffee drinks, chocolate and root beer. You can email her at: She loves hearing from readers, and responds to all emails personally.

Trusting Jack and Magnolia Secrets are a sampling of Beth's work.

Trusting Jack

After a devastating divorce, Emma is picking up the pieces of her shattered heart and life. Her first step is reclaiming her old job as personal assistant to famous actress Norah Jackson. Work takes her to London, where she meets sexy fledgling actor Jack Brandon. The sizzling attraction is immediate and mutual. Little by little, Emma begins to open her heart again. But Jack has a past, too. And it's come back to haunt him, wreaking havoc on their budding romance. Can Emma let go of the hurt and learn to trust Jack completely? Or is their relationship doomed to be a one act play?

What readers are saying about Trusting Jack:

5 Star Review
This was a great first book. The plot was interesting and the characters were well thought out. I kept wondering what would happen next. There was humor, too. I even laughed out loud a few times. I like the fact that it a light romance book, there's no extra graphic love scenes. She wrote those very well. It was an easy read. I really hope there is a follow up to this book.

4 Star Review
This particular love story had twists and turns that I definitely did not expect, especially toward the end. The characters were easily pictured in my mind and their personalities were infectious. Without a doubt, you knew who to root for. At times it was a little slow-developing in the story line but definitely made up for it toward the end. The author did a great job on her first novel. I will be waiting for her subsequent titles to be released.

Magnolia Secrets

Walker and Lainey share one explosive night together, and he awakens to find her gone. Shrugging it off as just a glorious one-night stand, he accepts a new job in a new town, New Hope, Mississippi. That's where he finds Lainey again. She just happens to be married to the Chief of Police-and Walker's new boss. Lainey is terrified that Walker will divulge their secret. If he does, Lainey is a dead woman. But despite the danger, she can't forget the one passionate night she spent in Walker's arms. Walker demands answers from Lainey: What secret is she hiding? Why is she so afraid? And when people begin dying, he wants to get to the bottom of it. Why is the police chief trying to brush off the deaths? Why doesn't he want Walker to work the cases? What kind of secrets is he hiding? Drawn together, unable to deny their passion, they risk their lives. Lainey is trapped. Walker is determined to save her and uncover the truth. Can they expose the secrets before a ruthless man destroys any hope for a brighter future?

What readers are saying about Magnolia Secrets:

Five Star Review
I couldn't put this book down!! I read it all at one time. Every time I attempted to peel myself away I just couldn't. If you are looking for a good read this is it!!! I simply can't wait to read the next book Beth Hale releases!!!

Four Star Review

Magnolia Secrets operates successfully on three fronts. It is a detective story, with real cops, good detectives and genuine criminals. It is also a romance story and again we have two very winsome and captivating lovers who steal our hearts. And finally, it is a battered wives tale and, in this respect, parts of it make for harrowing reading.

To get to know Beth better please visit her website or follow her on twitter @writes4coffee. You can also find her on Facebook.

Pick up one of Beth Hale's books today, or better yet, get one of each!

Jonna Hawker ~ Bethany Turner Pay It Forward by Nancy M Bell

Welcome Everyone. Today is April 29, 2015 and the second day of Rave Reviews Book Club Bethany Turner Pay It Forward Week. Please join me in supporting my fellow author.

Jonna Hawker

About the Author
Raised in the northern end of the Sacramento Valley in California, Jonna Hawker Turek’s early life was framed by mountain ranges. While her physical vistas were bounded on almost every side, her imagination was free to soar without limits and she became an incurable storyteller. After more than twenty years serving small churches from Alaska to South Dakota as a pastor's wife, she returned to her California roots to start over in mid-life as a single business woman and author. Jonna has published many articles on faith and ministry. She is an award winning author of several works of fiction under her maiden name, J.B. Hawker. "Hollow" the first book in the Bunny Elder series and winner of the BRAG Medallion Award, was her first published fiction.

Jonna's most recent work is Power for Women's Ministry Leaders. You can find in on Amazon here.

Writing as J.B. Hawker she has also published the Bunny Elder Adventures Series

What readers are saying about the Bunny Elder Series:

JL Sarff says:

JB Hawker writes the consummate cozy series for those who love sweet romance and humor with a religious bent. Bunny Elder's second book takes the accidental sleuth on a trip around romantic Italy. A book that will put a smile on your face. All four volumes for 4.99 is a steal.

C Martinelli says:

I discovered on of these books by accident, read it and loved it. Then I sought out the other books, and loved them too. They gave me a much needed break from a hectic world. I could slip into Bunny's world and follow her adventures, both personal and with some very scary criminals!
