Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

Where There’s Smoke by Sandra Brown

I haven’t read any Sandra Brown lately and it was nice to see she still brings the heat.  I’ve said quite vocally I will not read a book with a shirtless guy on the cover.  I’m not fond of romances.  Sandra Brown is the exception she combines sex and violence with not a single shirtless guy on the cover.   This book charts the journey of a wander lusting cowpoke and a disgraced female physician.

The book read like a small scale version of the old TV soap opera, Dallas.   It has the hard nosed single mom running an oil company through intimidation and shadiness.  The setting is a small Texas town with closed minded, stereotypical small town people.   Toss in some scandal, a heavy lidded bright eyed cowpoke and international intrigue, leaven with a good hearted ex-con, a spinster sister and a heavy handed, trashy witch (Amazon doesn’t care for anything even smelling profane, which isn’t all bad.) and you get the gist of the story.

Dismayingly I enjoyed the book.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
