Chapter by Chapter BLOG TOURS presents... Pretty Dead Girls by Monica Murphy - INTERVIEW + GIVEAWAY!

Hi there!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.

Today, we're joining Chapter by Chapter Blog Tours to celebrate the release of a new Young Adult title via Entangled Teen.  From the sound of things, it's pretty harrowing, emphasis on BOTH words there, and as the body count rises, secrets are bound to start spilling.  I wonder what they REALLY have to hide?  So, if you're looking for your next read, take a gander at this beauty...

About the book
Beautiful. Perfect. Dead.

In the peaceful seaside town of Cape Bonita, wicked secrets and lies are hidden just beneath the surface. But all it takes is one tragedy for them to be exposed.

The most popular girls in school are turning up dead, and Penelope Malone is terrified she's next. All the victims so far have been linked to Penelope—and to a boy from her physics class. The one she's never really noticed before, with the rumored dark past and a brooding stare that cuts right through her.

There's something he isn't telling her. But there's something she's not telling him, either.

Everyone has secrets, and theirs might get them killed.

Sounds good, right?
I thought so too...but I was curious.  I mean, why Penelope?  Why was she the final girl (in a sense)?  Why does she believe she's next?  So, I thought...why not ask?  For your reading pleasure, MY INTERVIEW with our leading lady, Penelope Malone!

1) Alright Penelope, why do you think this killer is out to get you?

It’s clear the killer is targeting the most popular girls at my school. Plus, the girls are all seniors. I’m popular. I’m a senior. It’s kind of a no brainer that I’m a target. I have enemies, so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised.

2) What do you really see in this physics kid, and for the love of Pete, what's his name? I mean, you say you're reluctantly working with him, but I don't know... to quote a famous teapot "perhaps there's something there that wasn't there before"...

Cass? Oh, at first I didn’t notice him at all, and I think he preferred it that way. But once I started spending time with him, I realized quick he’s smart. And he’s actually very attractive. He’s mysterious, and I can’t help but be drawn to all those secrets he carries so close. He’s super intriguing, but he also drives me crazy. Maybe I am crazy for wanting to spend time with him, you know?

3) Tell the truth. Of those that went before you (you, know in case you ARE next), who will you miss the least?

I don’t want to give any secrets away! I will miss everyone we lost, some more than others. And that’s all I can say about that.

4) While we're on that topic, who will you miss the most?

One of them is a close friend, but I’m revealing nothing. Sorry. *zips lips*

5) Our time is coming to an end (or rather YOURS might be), but before we go, if you do make it through this nightmare, what are your plans for the future?

Graduate high school and get out of Cape Bonita. This town is scary right now. I want out of here!

Right Kiss Wrong Guy
(Offsides #2)
Natalie Decker
Publication Date: January 23, 2018
Publisher: Swoon Romance
You'd think a girl with the most romantic name in the world would have her pick of boyfriends.
But Valentine's Day sucks when you're single. Just ask Juliet Valentine, whose last name happens to also be the name of the most dreaded made-up holiday ever.
A romantic at heart, this year is especially hard on Juliet. Her sister, Layla, is in a new relationship, her mom's match-making business is doing great, and her school's new fundraiser is "Love-Grams."
Juliet's miserable, a little jealous, and lonely.
Quarterback Jared Black is the most popular guy in school. A star athlete, Jared tops the most-eligible bachelor list year after year. But to Juliet Valentine, he's all but invisible. She isn't impressed.
Jared's never had to work hard to get the attention of a girl before. Valentine's Day is fast approaching, and he's determined to ask Juliet out. After all, if Tyler can win over Layla, Jared ought to have a shot with Layla's sister.
Unlike Tyler and Layla, charm, flattery and good looks won't work on Juliet. So with the V-Day dance coming up, Jared uses the school’s Love-Grams to let Juliet know how he feels. Should be simple enough, right?
Wrong. Each attempt ends up either in the trash or thrown in someone's face. Juliet won't play his game.
Now, without a date to the dance Jared realizes it’s going to take a Hail Mary to win the girl of his dreams.



Natalie Decker is the Author of Rival Love. She loves oceans, sunsets, sand between her toes, and carefree days. Her imagination is always going, which some find odd. But she believes in seeing the world in a different light at all times. Her first passion for writing started at age twelve when she had to write a poem for English class.

Although she studied Mathematics she never lost her passion for writing or her comfort in books. She’s a mean cook in the kitchen, loves her family and friends and her awesome dog infinity times infinity. If she’s not writing, reading, traveling, hanging out with her family and friends, then she’s off having an adventure. Because Natalie believes in a saying: Your life is your own journey, so make it amazing!

RRR presents...A Warriner to Tempt Her by Virginia Heath - REVIEW + GIVEAWAY!

Hi there!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.

Today, we're joining up with Rachel's Random Resources for a Regency Romance blog tour sure to set your her loving heart on fire.  It's book three in the Wild Warriners series from new-to-me author Virginia Heath, but read perfectly fine as a standalone...considering my own experience, purely...though, again considering my experience, I'm not certain why you'd want to stop there.  In fact, I have this book and the one prior winging their way to me now (in print) if that tells you anything.  ^-^  Anyway, for those longing to steep themselves in a new Historical Fiction find, or even for those simply looking for a great read (genre fan or not), I give you today's blog tour guest and book of choice...

Wild Warriners, Book 3
Virginia Heath
Mills and Boon

About the book...
A shy innocent wary of all men…

After a shocking incident, shy Lady Isabella Beaumont is perfectly happy to stay in the background and let her sister get all the attention from handsome suitors! However, working with Dr. Joseph Warriner to help the sick and needy pushes her closer to a man than she’s ever been before. Is this man worth trusting with her deepest of desires…?

Once upon a time, I didn't really read Romance titles.  It just wasn't my thing...until it was...and now I find myself branching out into other areas of the varied genre because really and truly, there are so many areas to explore!  While still a Contemporary fan at heart, now and then other titles speak to me, and this one happened to be one of them (of course it doesn't hurt that the cover was easy on the eyes either...).  So, I took off on a Historical Romance adventure expecting, well...not quite knowing what I'd find, but you know what?  I LOVED IT.

It was brilliant! It was lovely.  It was...yeah, all the good adjectives you could possibly think of! Dr. Warriner was such a breath of fresh air for his time (or any for that matter).  He really and truly was led by his mind and as wonderful as it was, it left his heart playing catch up, and his feelings backpedaling to find the right balance at the right time.  While not the suave-est of the Warriner brothers, he was the ultimate catch...not that Bella would notice.  I'd say "poor Bella" because honestly, what she went through was horrible (both "the incident" and the aftermath) but in truth, she wasn't "poor" at all...simply a little lost, a lot affected by what transpired (no one could blame her), betrayed by those that should have stood closed mouth (I SO wanted to punch that person right in the face), and ultimately vindicated.  That's right, vindicated...and honestly, while she had some help in that department, if it wasn't for her own strength and merit, it still wouldn't have happened.

In the end, it was a remarkable story to get lost in with characters to root for, causes to stand behind, ignorance to uproot, and people to show what's for. Most got what they deserved in the end, in one way or another, and the town as well as townspeople were better for it.  Dr. Warriner and Bella truly shine on all on their own, but together...the possibilities are endless...that is if they end up together.  Hey, I can't spoil it entirely for you!  ^-^


About the author...

When Virginia Heath was a little girl it took her ages to fall asleep, so she made up stories in her head to help pass the time while she was staring at the ceiling. As she got older, the stories became more complicated, sometimes taking weeks to get to the happy ending. Then one day, she decided to embrace the insomnia and start writing them down. Fortunately, the lovely people at Harlequin took pity on her and decided to publish her romances, but it still takes her forever to fall asleep.
