Righting a wrong
Righting a Wrong by Rachael Anderson Seven years ago, Cambri Blaine fled her small hometown of Bridger, Colorado after her senior year ended in a fiasco. Only Jace Sutton knew the real reason why—that she was a spineless coward. Now, seven years later, her father's been in an accident and needs help, and Cambr has no choice but to return home. So with trepidation, she takes a leave of absence from the landscape architecture firm where she works and boards a plane, hoping against hope that Jace is no longer around and that the past can stay where it belongs—in the past. If only life worked that way. Jace never expected to see Cambri again. After she’d led him on, bruised his heart, and left town without a backward glance, he was forced to pick up the pieces and try not to hate her for it. Eventually, he put it behind him and moved on, creating a life for himself in his beloved hometown. But now that Cambri is back and looking more beautiful and sophisticated than ever, some of those old feelings resurface, and Jake instinctively knows, for the sake of his heart, that he needs to avoid her at all costs. If only it were that easy.

I don’t need a bunch of medication to mess that all up.” “No medication, no breakfast.” Cambri wriggled her palm. “What’s for breakfast?” Her eyebrow lifted. “I can tell you it’s not the fatted calf.” Although he harrumphed, a twinkle of humor appeared. “I almost forgot how cheeky you could be.” “And I almost forgot how ornery you could be.” He rolled his eyes, but grudgingly accepted the pills, swallowing them with a sip of water. Then he settled back against his pillow. “I always have sausage, eggs, and hash browns on Saturdays.” “Believe it or not, I remember.” Cambri retrieved a breakfast tray from the kitchen and set it on his lap, mentally preparing herself for what would come. “What’s that supposed to be?” Her father stared at the food in disgust. “Oatmeal, whole wheat toast, and freshly squeezed OJ,” said Cambri smoothly. “Try it. You might like it.” “Why isn’t there butter on this toast? Where’s my sausage and hash browns?” “Your heart doesn’t want bacon and hash browns. It wants oatmeal.” “Bullwinkle.” Excerpt 2 In Cambri’s life, mistakes were like boomerangs. She’d make them, regret them, and launch them as hard and far as she could to get away from them. Then suddenly, after she thought they were long gone, they would come sailing back to thunk her hard on the chest. Like now. Cambri could practically hear the figurative boomerang whooshing toward her as recognition dawned on Jace’s face—the kind of recognition that came when seeing someone from your past you’d rather not see. “Hey, Jace,” was all she could come up with to say. She clutched the pruning shears, frantically trying to think of something more. “Long time no see.” He glanced at the shears, and a few awkward seconds passed before he responded. “Yeah, long time.” “I was just, uh . . .” Cambri brushed a few dried leaves off the shears and held them up—“trying these out. They’re sharper than I expected. I’ll take them.” “Will you take the hose too, or was it the sprinkler head you were also trying out?” Excerpt 3 She rested her hand on his arm, but when he tensed, she pulled it away. “University Park and Charlotte are beautiful cities with so much to offer, but Bridger isn’t without its charms. Coming back here is like entering a different world.” “An archaic world.” “That’s not what I’m talking about,” said Cambri. “People here know and care about each other. When you walk down the street, you pass friends instead of strangers. The air is cleaner, the pace slower, and the world calmer. I’m pretty sure the sky is even bluer.” Jace slung his bag over her shoulder and leveled her a hard look. “Actions speak louder than words, Cambri. Or are you forgetting you left for bluer skies six years ago?” Her gaze held steady. “Sometimes it takes seeing other skies to know which is bluer.” One eye brow quirked as he considered her words. “What are you saying? That you’ve had your fill of city life and want to move back?” Cambri looked away. Was she saying that? No, of course not. That would be crazy. She was happy in Charlotte. “All I’m saying is that I appreciate Bridger a lot more than I used to.” He let out a low chuckle that didn’t sound even close to humorous. “Like I said, actions speak louder than words.” He started to walk past her, then paused, looking beyond her to the back door. “You talk of passing friends instead of strangers, but in my experience, friends are really just strangers disguised as familiar faces.” His arm brushed against her shoulder as he left, and an uncomfortable, almost palpable, sensation spread down her arm and landed with a thud in her gut.

Goodreads Summary

Author Bio/Links: 

I am the author of "Selling Hope," a middle grade historical fiction novel set in 1910 Chicago on the vaudeville circuit, and "Autumn Winifred Oliver Does Things Different," an historical fiction account of the beginnings of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park through the eyes of 11-year-old Autumn. AND: Coming Fall of 2012: Ophiuchus et al in "The 13th Sign." I never met a writing genre I didn't like. Some may call it a lack of focus; I prefer to think of it as a lust for life. I adore "kid lit," though, because I think it's the most honest writing out there. My writing gigs have included a lot of licensed character books: Scooby-Doo (Ruh-roh!), Strawberry Shortcake (Berry cool!), Bugs Bunny (Ain't I a stinker?), the PowerPuff Girls (Game over!) and next year, the new Holly Hobbie & Friends (Hey, girl!) But enough about me...

Surfacing by Shana Norris: 250+ Book Giveaway! (USA) ***Needs info***

Friday, April 18, 2014

Sixteen-year-old Mara Westray has just lost her mother, and now, being shipped off to live with the father she doesn’t know is not how she imagined grieving. She’s already counting down the days until she turns eighteen and can leave the tiny island of Swans Landing.

But from the moment she steps off the ferry, nothing is as ordinary as it looks. Whispers of a haunting song on the wind make her see impossible things, and she isn’t sure she can trust her judgment about what is real and what isn’t anymore. Maybe she can’t even trust her judgment about quiet Josh Canavan, whose way of speaking in riddles and half-truths only confuses her more, luring her deeper into the secrets hidden beneath the ocean’s surface.

As she tries to unravel the events that led to her mom fleeing the island sixteen years ago, Mara finds that the biggest secret of all is only the beginning.
