If gossip is the lifeblood of a small town, then Lizzy Logan has been its beating heart. After being dumped by her fiancé for another woman, she could have decided to crawl under a rock. But no, she’d rather really set tongues wagging by “moving on” with one of the hottest cowboys in Texas, who happens to live next door at the Lucky Penny Ranch. Those busybodies don’t have to know it’s actually all pretend. And just because Lizzy has no aim to tame her wild, blue-eyed neighbor doesn’t mean she can’t enjoy the ride of her life.

Toby Dawson never was and never will be the settling-down type. But what harm could there be in agreeing to be Lizzy’s pretend boyfriend? They’ll put on a show for a few weeks and be done. Yet the more he gets to know Lizzy-really know her-the harder it is for him to keep his hands off of her in private. Soon this rough-and-ready cowboy is hoping to heal Lizzy’s bruised heart and turn their fake affair into a true romance…

My Father Didn’t Kill Himself by Russell Nohelty
Release Date: March 4, 2016
Publisher: Wannabe Press
Pages: 305
Source: book provided by the author for review



Delilah is a teenager who adores her father, so when he commits suicide it’s devastating to her. He was the perfect dad in her eyes, and her family had the perfect life.

When her father’s life insurance policy won’t pay out on a suicide, she sets out to prove he was actually murdered so she doesn’t lose her childhood home.

Set in 2007, My Father Didn’t Kill Himself is told all through blog posts between Delilah and her best friend Alex as they battle through the emotional turmoil of the death somebody they love…and the realization they might not be the perfect person.

But before you think the book is wholly depressing, don’t worry. I don’t roll like that. In fact, my thing is kind of taking wholly depressing loglines and stories, then injecting humor and warmth into them. I’m like John Green meets Kurt Vonnegut, or at least that’s who I aspire to be one day…they both have amazing hair.

I’m having the suckiest day ever. First, my father, aka Mr. Grumpy Pants, calls to say his nurse just walked out on him. Likely story. I rush home to pack, only to walk in on my husband getting it on with his younger, skanky secretary. Unfortunately, my quick weekend trip home to fix Dad’s problems turns into a stay of a few weeks. Luckily, I’ve got Danny, the neighbor boy I’ve had a crush on since I was a dorky, braces-wearing, nose-buried-in-a-book teenager, and a brand-spanking new blog to keep my mind off things. Before I know it, I’m writing product reviews of vibrators and getting questioned by a store rent-a-cop at the world’s worst date ever. All while trying to figure out how to take things with Danny to the next level. Not to complicate things or anything, but my boss decides to give me an ultimatum—come back in four weeks or don’t come back at all. How in the world did my life get so complicated?

You can never have enough of quality glassware for your home, especially when it is double-wall glasses – not only do they look great, but they are multi-functional!

Main Features of Double Wall Glasses

Made using borosilicate glass
Ordinary glasses contain a mix of quartz, sodium carbonate and calcium carbonate, while borosilicate adds boron to the composition. It helps to strengthen the glass and make it extremely lightweight, also rendering it heat-resistant – with quality better than traditional glass. It is blown by sophisticated techniques that are responsible for its toughness.

Sturdy and robust structure
This type of glassware is resistant to scratches, chips, and nicks with a lower percentage of breakage than single wall glasses due to the powerful borosilicate glass utilized during manufacture. These glasses are dishwasher safe, and since their thermal resistance capacity is quite high, they are unaffected by microwave heat as well. You could also store them in the freezer safely, without cracking or breaking.

Great stability
The glasses have superior stability so they can be used for both hot and cold beverages -from a fancy frozen dessert to hot coffee. The insulation is excellent, so it retains both hot and cold temperatures for a very long time. Moreover, the glass doesn’t get cloudy or murky with time, unlike its conventional counterparts.

Everyday use
These glasses look exquisite and fancy, but can be used on a daily basis. The insulation properties ensures that heat or cold can’t penetrate through the walls, so you won’t feel the temperature against your palm which is a great added benefit for kids.

Perfect Gift
The next time you wrack your brains trying to come up with a great present, just buy a set of double wall glasses – they will surely appreciate this practical gift.
