Melanie Blythe is perfectly happy staying home and focusing on her graphic design clients. She knows her limits and has been burned before. She certainly never intended to become involved with the gorgeous cop down the street.
Finn DeLuca has more than enough on his hands recovering from a hit-and-run accident that has left him temporarily in a wheelchair. He’s on the rebound and has no intention of getting romantic with the cute girl two doors down.
But they didn’t count on his five brothers and sisters sticking their noses in Finn and Mel’s business. They are a force to be reckoned with in the first installment of this family’s story.
The DeLucas are back in this second installment of the family saga.
Hugh DeLuca knows what he wants from life: marriage, family, contentment. He’s had it with women more interested in their careers than anything or anyone else. The last one broke his heart and nearly broke his spirit. So why can’t he get his brother’s partner out of his mind and his dreams? She’s exactly the sort of woman he’s trying to avoid, but they keep getting thrown together and he can’t seem to forget her.
Chris Hart was the youngest person ever to make detective in her precinct and she’s proud of the career she’s built. She loves her partner, but wishes she could forget about his gorgeous older brother. He makes her nervous and she’s developed a ridiculous school-girl crush that he seems completely oblivious to. She’s much too old for this sort of thing! But Finn’s wedding keeps her in all-too frequent contact with Hugh. How is she supposed to forget him when she has to see him nearly every day?
When six bodies are discovered on Hugh’s new job site, it shuts down construction and he turns to Chris for help. Will they be able to solve the mystery before one of them gets killed? Will they be able to overcome their preconceived ideas of what the other is looking for in a relationship and find the love that is waiting for them?
Madison is still in a state of shock. Not only is her favorite actress, the famous Jessica Redinger, her mother, but she also has an identical twin, Raven Redinger. Raven is everything Madison wishes she could be—popular, famous, and cool under pressure—so she agrees to use their twin status as a ploy to increase their celebrity appeal.
The deal also includes Madison keeping her hands off Raven’s ex, the charming Giovanni Abate. But after an unfortunate incident during a family trip to London, Madison realizes just how unreliable family can be.
Giovanni is certain he knows which twin he wants…
Madison returns to L.A., humiliated and shunned by her mother’s side of the family, and determined to focus on building her band. Her attention is diverted, however, when Gio is quick to admit he’s still got Madison fever. She knows he’s off-limits, but when you combine his undeniable Italian good looks with a heartfelt confession, Madison can’t help but fall right back into his arms.
As their birthday approaches, the twins’ relationship hits a breaking point…
Madison’s mother has been holding back a secret, and it turns the entire family’s world upside down. Raven has her own plans for Madison, though, and she isn’t about to let her back out on their deal now.
Will Madison ever be accepted as one of the famous Redingers? Or is there a high price to pay for breaking…

She is a Graphic Design major at Southern New Hampshire University and hopes to graduate with a B.A. degree sometime in the next couple of years.

What a GREAT review!!!!! I love it!
Here’s a new one for you; a twisted teen drama with a dash of romance and killer cooking skills. The Way To Her Heart by Amy Reece really gets down and dirty with what it’s like growing up in a troubled home and the complicated ways young relationships can pull at a couple. I wasn’t sure what I was going to get, going in, but I was more than pleasantly surprised.
Overall Rating: 6/6 Glass Slippers
Genre: Suspenseful Teen Romance

And I thought I was pretty decent at dialogue…
Today we are going to talk about dialogue. Everyone thinks they are great at it, and many would be wrong. Dialogue really is a lot tricker than it might seem.
Great dialogue is one of the most vital components of fiction. Dialogue is responsible for not only conveying the plot, but it also helps us understand the characters and get to know them, love them, hate them, whatever.
Dialogue is powerful for revealing character. This is as true in life as it is on the page. If people didn’t judge us based on how we speak, then business professionals wouldn’t bother with Toastmasters, speaking coaches or vocabulary builders.
I’d imagine few people who’d hire a brain surgeon who spoke like a rap musician and conversely, it would be tough to enjoy rap music made by an artist who spoke like the curator of an art museum.
Our word choices are…

It’s all about that plot, bout that….you get the idea.
One of the toughest concepts to grasp in writing fiction is this notion of “inner demons.” In all my years working with writers and busting apart countless manuscripts, the single greatest weakness I’ve witnessed with writers is a failure to truly understand how to plot. And before anyone breaks out in hives that I am encouraging detailed outlines, I’m not.
But the problem with inner demons is they are…well…inner. This means that our job as writers is to draw the demons out so they can be destroyed. It’s kind of like The Exorcist, though green puke and spinning heads is all your call.
You might laugh but if you have ever seen any movie involving an exorcism, what is the general progression?
The victim starts acting weird. Not herself. At first it might be written off as depression or lack of sleep or not enough caffeine. Then as the…

I’m trying to make sure the Easter eggs are all well placed in my new story!
Okay so on Monday I talked about 3 Mistakes that Will Make Readers Want to Punch a Book in the Face. One of the mistakes involved the twist ending. Very often a writer believes she has written a twist when in fact, it is NOT a twist at all, it is a twerk.
Twisting the reader? YES. Twerking the reader? NO.
You’ve heard the literary term MacGuffin? For the sake of a simple analogy, I’m adding a new one and it is called a MacGyver 😛 .
How is a MacGyver a twist?
We know MacGyver is in a bad spot and he has two choices. The obvious one. A gun. Blast his way out. Or he has is det-cord, glitter, and coffee stirrers.
OMG! How can he ever survive?
MacGuyver uses what he is given and fashions the glitter, det-cord and coffee stirrers into a small incendiary device…

First of all, anything by Mia Hoddell makes it to my TBR list. She writes about people I want to know and places I want to see.
Great characters! Cole and Alaya are an amazing couple you will root for all the way through the book. I love the way the author keeps you guessing about Cole’s secret. Alaya is a sassy, fun protagonist, who still manages to pull at your heartstrings.
The setting is so much fun and I want to visit! Kudos to Hoddell for writing so well about exotic (at least to me) locales.
You definitely want to pick this one up. It will be your favorite summer read!
