Annie’s Karma by Chelle Cordero
Annie Furman moves on from her past and into her future with Undersheriff Dave Turner. Her gifts – or are they her curse? – grow stronger, and she finds out that she is not alone in the realm of astral travel. Dave saved her life, now she has to fight another ‘traveler’ to save Dave… if she survives.
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.

Dog Training The American Male: Take The Test To See Who Is A Member In Good Standing Of The Canine Club
L.A. Knight’s own marriage and the experiences of two different dog trainers he hired to train his German Shepherd, provided the unique inspiration for his laugh-out-loud book, Dog Training the American Male. Realizing his wife often treats him like a dumb animal (deservedly so, he admits, since most men are simple creatures who essentially want sex, food and to watch football), he jokes: “Give us what we want and domestication is possible. After all, who among us hasn’t performed for a treat, peed on a tree, dry-humped a woman’s leg, howled at the moon, or stuck his nose in a groin or two.”
At the heart of this hilarious tale is Dr. Nancy Beach, a relationship counselor who hosts a local radio show in South Florida called Love’s a Beach. Sadly, since this relationship guru can’t seem to make her own relationships work, her credibility and ratings are in the toilet. She is set up on a blind date with Jacob, a casualty of Lehman Brothers, who lost his job and swagger and now yearns to be a stand-up comedienne/ventriloquist. Since he’s already a walking thesaurus of phobias and now he’s dating a psych major― these two are either the perfect match or the relationship is a ticking time bomb.
Their siblings, for different reasons, don’t care ― they just want to be rid of them! Jacob’s brother (gynecologist Vinnie) and Nancy’s lesbian sister (Lana) encourage the young couple to move in together. When the honeymoon stage abruptly ends, Lana convinces Jacob to buy her sister a little white foo-foo dog ― a pet she enjoyed as an insecure child. Being a “typical man” Jacob doesn’t listen and instead goes to the dog pound, returning home with Sam – a 120-pound German Shepherd.
Needless to say, chaos ensues and Nancy flips out. But after hiring a dog trainer she has an epiphany … what if the dog trainer’s techniques can be used to housebreak Jacob? What follows is a wildly hilarious, social experiment that every couple and dog owner can identify with.
Kirkus Reviews states “Dog Training the American Male is funny in the best way: the humor propels the action rather than pausing it . . . prose flows like a jocular babbling brook. L.A. Knight is a naturally-gifted comic writer; what is more, she is a talented storyteller.” What is also funny is that like many readers, Kirkus assumed L.A. Knight is a woman. In fact, the author is NY Times best-selling author Steve Alten whose riveting hit series MEG was recently optioned by Warner Brothers for a movie to be directed by Jon Turtletaub and starring Jason Statham.
Laysha Duran, Manhattan with a Twist: “Laugh out loud funny!” Dog Training the American Male: A Novel, by L.A. Knight will have you in stitches … L.A. Knight’s debut novel and it’s a great one at that. Both sexes will enjoy reading this quirky take on how to housebreak the male species…”
CeliaSue Hecht, Writer/Editor , Have Dog Blog Will Travel: “This is definitely NOT your usual romantic comedy romp between the sheets and the relationship. It started kinda slow to me… but it is a very funny premise about a man and woman and a dog. The woman is a radio talk show host and a psychologist … Nancy has issues with men, to say the least. She moves in with her boyfriend, Jacob, he gets a dog and the dog is out of control so she hires a dog trainer… Nancy hires two dog trainers to help with the German Shepherd pound puppy five years old and not fixed. Then she decides to use the training tools she is learning on the dog with the man … what ensues is kinda kooky, crazy and just plain funny.”
Tom Mayer, Mountain Times Publications: “Teaching your old dog new tricks simply requires the right treat — so goes the story of Dog Training the American Male, a riotous romp through relationships of the young, the old and the restless … Comedic newcomer L.A. Knight offers a fresh farce replete with a cast of well-drawn characters, fast-paced wit and merging cinematic story lines that triumph as a novel, but would feel equally right on a London stage, as a Netflix original or in a theater near you.”
Arielle Sidrane, Spa Week Daily: “At first I thought it was a self-help book, but I quickly learned otherwise. It’s actually a hilarious, tongue-in-cheek novel that will have you in stitches from start to finish. Each character has the same smart, witty banter that you can actually hear going back and forth in your head. Although it’s a bit over-the-top, (I could have done without the sexcapades in retirement homes), I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed reading this. And lucky for my boyfriend, I’m no closer to “training him.”
A portion of the proceeds from DOG TRAINNG THE AMERICAN MALE book sales will be donated to Paws4Liberty www.paws4liberty.org in honor of Wade J. Maller.

REVIEWS (English Edition)
Despite having placed the book down due to being busy, as soon as I picked it up again, I had no problem being wrapped back up into the story. The characters are able to be connected with and each have their own quirks that give them life. The tone of the book is so casual that it feels as if you’re right in the thicket of the story’s environment. Additionally, the tone complements the characters very well as it emphasizes the thoughts of each of them that makes their situations feel real. Anytime a book can make me use my imagination to paint the picture, it’s doing a darn good job…. Kelsey
Who doesn’t like a gritty love story. The romance plays out to be true to imagination with a real flare for an intimate setting and flawless character portrayals, the character ‘Trace’, being my favorite. The authors writing style sucks you in to the pages and I found I couldn’t put it down.
I was actually late for an appointment yesterday as I was so engrossed reading this book on the train that I missed my stop lol. I hope Tamara brings a lot more romance to our lives, and I will definitely be watching out for more books to come by this talented new author….

Deputy Sheriff Commander Jake Carlson hat alle Hände voll zu tun … er ermittelt in
einem brutalen Mehrfachmord, sein Sohn hat Probleme in der Schule und er selbst
hat eine rachsüchtige Exfrau am Hals. Er trifft die junge, freigeistige
Notfallsanitäterin Julie Jennings. Als Julie zum Objekt einer Obsession wird,
schweben sie beide in Gefahr …
Für Matt und Julie hatte ihr Dienst begonnen wie viele andere. Sie wurden zu einem kleineren
Verkehrsunfall gerufen, zu jemandem mit Schmerzen in der Brust und zu einem
Krebspatienten, der zur Behandlung ins Krankenhaus musste. Viele der
Gemeinschaften im Norden des Staates New York hatten Notfalldienste unter
Vertrag, um dem bestehenden Rettungsdienst unter die Arme zu greifen und auf
medizinische Notfälle zu reagieren. Ob bezahlt oder nicht, der qualifizierte
Dienst schickte immer Rettungsassistenten, die mit den meisten Notfällen
umgehen konnten. Wenn die Notfallsanitäter ausgesandt wurden, machten ein
weiteres Paar Hände und Infusionen oft den kritischen Unterschied.
Dieser Notruf kam über Funk für ein Brandopfer, also war keiner der Polizisten,
Feuerwehrmänner, ehrenamtlichen Rettungshelfer oder Sanitäter darauf
vorbereitet, was sie in diesem abgelegenen Werkzeugschuppen vorfanden. Von
außen wirkte das ergraute Holz friedlich genug, und das eine kleine Fenster war
schmutzverkrustet. Julie dachte nicht, dass sie unter normalen Umständen den
Schuppen eines zweiten Blickes gewürdigt hätte. Aber das hier war alles andere
als normal. Niemand hatte mit der Horrorszene im Inneren gerechnet.
Chelle Cordero strikes a winning combination of romance and suspense in this medical crime
thriller. Detailed research and characterizations coupled with a break-neck
pace create a hard-to-put-down-read.

Juliana’s world is turned upside down when her husband, Paul, is brutally murdered in the darkness of an alleyway in Venice. She is raped and left for dead while the sounds of the Masked Carnival fill the air.
The only thing that keeps Juliana going is the memories of a perfect love, and her deep desire for vengeance.
With the help of her father, the killers are tracked down, one by one, and on the anniversary of Paul’s death, with the sounds of the Carnival in the background, the killers come face to face with the Mask of Deceit, and pay the ultimate price at the hands of a woman who is dead inside.
“edge of my seat, escalating heartbeat kind of story”
“I’ve read Paul Zunckel’s Blood Moon Trilogy, and The Devil in Eden. Mask of Deceit is different from those but just as satisfying. His descriptive phrasing drew me right into the scenes all while enjoying the edge of my seat, escalating heartbeat kind of story he has written here!
Africa, a place where superstition and witchcraft runs deep, a place of beauty, but where death lurks in the shadows. A land shrouded in mystery, with ancient beliefs simmering just beneath the surface – set on a collision course with modern western ideas.
An innocent act unleashes a horror that walks the African night… under the full moon… and nothing is safe.
Piet van Zyl, safari owner, finds himself drawn into a world of witchcraft, and face to face with a horror returned from the grave. With the support of Veronica Strydom, with her vast knowledge of African Culture, he must rid the night of the abomination, or die trying.

One New Year’s Eve, shy singer, December Brown drunkenly texts her talk show host pal, Trace Randall, about her long time crush on the aloof actor, Tom Elmswood. Thinking the two celebrities would make a cute couple, he unwisely decides to play matchmaker… in front of a live studio audience.
Things start to go downhill when Tom admits he’s never even heard of December before. Now what seemed like a sure fire hit quickly becomes a flop. Will these two lonely hearts ever make a love connection or has this cupid’s arrow missed its mark?
Outstanding Debut Author in Interracial Romance 2015
I laughed and cried along with the characters. I fell in love with the story line and the Characters. I Love Tom! He was the most down to earth man with a heart of Gold! December AKA Dee banter and sweet talk had me on a emotional roller coaster. I would love to have friends like Clarissa and Terrence. This book (genre) is a book that I have never read. Tamara wove magic when writing this and also has made me become a fan of Romantic Comedies. Awesome!!!
April Nichols Baker
The danger of drunken texts
A very well written sweet story. I especially liked how the celebrities came across as real people who were lucky enough to have jobs doing something that made them happy (and pays well!). It could have used a little more conflict – a backstabbing ex, some racist relatives, a kidnapping, but on the other hand, it’s nice when people just get along without a lot of unnecessary drama. Plus, you can see where conflict might come up in the next book.
Note: I didn’t know bw/wm was a thing so now I’m intrigued! In any case the woman is clearly described as a light skinned black (or possibly biracial) woman. Think Halle Berry, not Lupita Nyong’o. To the author, if the skin tone of the cover model is the worst thing somebody can find to say about your work then well done, madam! Well done!
