Getting Away, If Only In Your Mind…


Its vacation time, and some of you are making travel plans for your summer getaways. Whether it’s a tropical beach somewhere, or a breathtaking mountain retreat, getting away from the day to day grind, even if it’s just for a little while, can help us to relax, rejuvenate, and refresh our minds.

But sometimes, taking a vacation just isn’t possible and we must find other ways to refresh. This is case for my husband and me this year.

With vacation not an option, we’ve come up with other ways to beat the Texas heat.

This year, we’ve set up our 15 foot, blow up pool around at the back of our house, and we spend time every afternoon there, enjoying the cool water.

But there are other ways to “get away” too, whenever you can’t actually get away. Or maybe you don’t have a blow up pool.

You’ve probably guessed where I’m going with this. A good book can take you to places you might never get to go otherwise.

No matter why type of books you enjoy reading, getting lost in a good story can make the days just fly by. And before you know it, when you reach “the end”, you realize you’ve taken a vacation without ever leaving your chair.

So, what’s your favorite book vacation?


Deadly Memories – Available now at Amazon


Amnesia may be keeping Ella Weiss from remembering her past—but not from saving the little boy who’s been her fellow prisoner the last seven years. After managing to escape her cell, all she wants is to find where little Joseph is being kept. Instead she runs straight into CIA agent Kyle Jennings. Kyle isn’t sure if Ella is actually a kidnap victim or if she’s working for the gunrunner he’s been after. One thing he is certain of is her uncanny resemblance to the wife he thought he’d buried. To save a child’s life and stop a terrorist from slipping through his fingers, he’ll need to uncover the secrets of Ella’s past—and whether or not she’s really the woman he’s never stopped loving.


All the best…
