Review of: Crossed Lines by Jessica Cross


I needed to turn the pages to know what was coming

Ms. Cross tells an intriguing tale of mistakes and losses and yet the heroine still rises from the ashes. Crossed Lines is a tale that kept me turning pages NEEDING to know what would happen next. I strongly recommend this book.
~ reviewed by Chelle Cordero, Author of Passion & Suspense

 

Crossed Lines: How Could She Have Known That What She Desired The Most Would Become Her Undoing

As she taps on the computer, using writing as part of her recovery from a debilitating stroke at age 35, Jessica Cross not only overcomes the worst thing that happened in her young life ― she finds her true calling! In her debut story, Crossed Lines: What Lies Buried Within the Heart, we meet Sandra, a woman who believes she’s living the “perfect life” until her dreams expose an unfulfilled longing. But it’s what happens after she satisfies that longing that propels her life into a downward spiral as secrets and passions collide for a cataclysmic undoing of not only Sandra’s world, but the lives of many others, in an intriguing tale of love, greed and karma.

In her new novel, Jessica Cross explores the mythical “perfect life” and how a closer examination can expose an emptiness that demands to be filled, whatever the cost. The well-paced storyline and believable characters combine to create a raw and profoundly beautiful book that readers will find hard to put down.

Some of Crossed Lines might have come straight from Cross’s own experiences. After bearing a child at the age of 17, she doggedly pursued an education that led to her own dream life: a rewarding career, a loving husband and children. But at the age of 35, she was dealt a crippling blow: a stroke that left her hospitalized for months with a paralyzed right side and an inability to work.

Two years later, still in rehabilitation and out of work, Cross began punching at a computer keyboard to restore function to her arm and hand. Having little interest in typing mindlessly, she began writing what would become Crossed Lines.

In addition to writing, Cross is a motivational speaker, an activist in education and wellness, and an advocate for women’s empowerment.

PRE-RELEASE REVIEW

 Annie’s Karma is a super followup novel to Karma Visited. I was intrigued by many things that evolved and expanded throughout the book, not the least of which is the incredibly detailed (although fictional, I must guess) accounts of astral travel, alongside the thriller aspects of the story.
~ Karen Mayes, Beta Reader

Book Review: Pianissimo by Lauren Shiro

Pianissimo

Pianissimo by Lauren Shiro

 by Lauren Shiro

Darryl and Corinne Richards purchase their first house. With Darryl’s army career coming to a close, they feel ready to settle down in Louisville, Kentucky. With impeccable timing, Darryl is sent on one final tour, leaving Corinne to live in this new house and new city alone.

Overwhelmed, Corinne becomes reclusive, living a quiet, boring life with her cats as she adjusts to her new surroundings. The problem is: someone or some thing does not want her life to be either quiet or boring. And then there’s the creepy piano in the basement…

There is more to that creepy, dilapidated piano and her new home than Corinne could ever imagine. Through highs and lows, twists and turns, she begins to understand that even the most softly played music is powerful – and that even soft realizations and quietly subtle changes can have a profound effect.

Pianissimo di Lauren Shiro ora disponibili in edizioni italiane!
