CJ Foster’s A Seaside Story brings a compelling tale of love, loss, and the decisions that shape our future…

Love or money? Sometimes it’s not so simple.

Kate Toscano’s life is upended when her sister is killed in a car accident. This jet-setting writer for a trendy Las Vegas magazine is now the guardian of her five-year-old, autistic nephew, Jimmy, and is forced to move back home. Kate’s mother is skeptical about bringing a young, special needs child into her well-structured and organized home in Avalon Bay, but what other choice does Kate have?

As Kate struggles to begin her life anew, she runs into John Neal, her old high school flame. Their parting fourteen years prior was bittersweet when Kate left home to get her degree in journalism and follow her dreams. Old feelings are rekindled, but not all flames that burn are meant to stay lit, so when she learns their timing is off, yet again, she knows it’s time to make a decision: Choose security, or take a bold chance on an uncertain future.

If only it were so easy.

 Fans of Jodi Picoult and Kristin Hannah will devour this “compelling” and “unforgettable” coming-of-age story in one sitting. Get your copy today!

Excerpt:

The source of her current vexation was readily apparent from the clue of only one pronoun.  “Just look at what he’s gone and done now!” she snapped as Kate reached the open door and, brushing past her, stepped inside.

She suppressed a smile at the sight of all her mother’s shoes and slippers placed toe-to-heel in a colorful serpentine across the carpet.  Just over her shoulder, she heard Lydia mutter that she had absolutely no idea what had gotten into him to make such a mess of her footwear.  That the young perpetrator was nowhere in sight filled Kate with more concern than her mother’s assessment that it would probably take at least a month of Sundays to restore order to her closet.  “Jimmy?” she gently called out.  “Jimmy, honey, where are you?”

A giggle from behind the wicker clothes hamper rewarded Kate’s patience.  Grape jam from his morning’s toast still creased the corners of his mouth as he burst out of his hiding place like a miniature cannonball heading for the hallway.  Kate intercepted him and held him in her arms as he struggled to get free.  The dark blond hair she had so meticulously combed after breakfast was already unruly and one of his shoes, she noticed, was missing.  “Parade!” he squealed, pointing to his pint-sized contribution to the colorful line-up as he broke free from his aunt and returned to the shoes.  “Parade!”

“It’s a beautiful parade,” Kate praised him. “But we need to put all of these back in Nana’s closet now, okay?”

“Parade!” Jimmy shouted again, this time louder.

From the corner of her eye, Kate could see her mother folding her arms and shaking her head.  Truth be told, she could also read exactly what was running through Lydia’s mind; specifically, the same script she’d been playing over and over ever since Jimmy’s condition had first been diagnosed.  It was Cassy’s deadbeat ex—and not a twist of fate—whom Lydia would steadfastly blame throughout all eternity for providing the genes that made her first grandchild defective.

“You know a lot about automobiles, Mr. Riley?” asked Mictlan.

James shrugged. “No. Not really,” he said.

“And yet you seem very familiar with the mechanics of this vehicle of yours.”

“Well, yeah. It's my car.”

The doctor scrawled something in his notes. “Interesting,” he replied.

“What is?” sputtered James. He was feeling light-headed as the drug made itself known once more.

The doctor stared at him. His cold eyes seemed to probe James's very soul which seemed to cause his to shiver. “Oh, it's nothing that concerns you right now. We'll talk more about this matter later. What is important at the moment is filling in the gaps, and there are so many that need filling. So many. Now, please, continue.”

What if a man lost his moral compass between right and wrong, good and evil, mental stability and insanity?

John Corbin has been investigating, catching, and convicting murderers, rapists, and pedophiles for twenty years as a Seattle detective. But lately, someone has been beating him to the punch and eliminating these vile criminals before he can apprehend them. John is learning that there is a thin line between innocent or guilty, good or evil, alive or dead.

By definition, a thin line is a very narrow division between two alternatives. Some being exact opposites, while others are separated by the narrowest of threads. This novel follows this definition to the letter. In life, many situations aren't just black or white. There is usually a modicum of grey to fill in the space. Who is right? Who is wrong? Who is good? Who is evil? Perhaps everyone at one time or another lies somewhere in the middle.

A Thin Line is a tale that will immediately draw you in and keep you guessing. A suspenseful psychological thriller with twists and turns that will toy with your mind and emotions, driven by a chilling narrative that builds the tension right up until its explosive conclusion.

Excerpt:

By the time John and Todd had arrived at the Northgate Mall, it had already been shut down and closed off. No way in. No way out. The perp had taken a light machine gun into the mall and open fired on the unsuspecting consumers. There were bodies splayed from the Sunglass Hut to the food court, blood everywhere, a few already dead and another ten to twenty seriously injured. The perp had taken a hostage and barricaded himself inside Victoria's Secret. Why he did it, no one had discovered yet. The police were setting up in the Bath and Body Works directly across from Victoria's Secret. John and Todd entered through the back entrance that connected to the parking lot. “Good morning. I’m Detective Corbin, and this is Detective McGrath,” John said as he approached the group of officers huddled together discussing tactics.

“Hello detectives, we were instructed to hand the lead over to you two. I am Officer Wilson. This is Officer Taft, Officer Bianco, and Officer Getz.”

“Good morning, officers,” Todd said.

“What does he want?” John asked.

“He has asked for safe passage out and a car waiting for him.”

“Why?” John asked. “He had that before he shot up the mall. I’m not buying it. It’s just a diversion. He has other plans.”

“Sir, he claims once he is out he will free the hostage. We shouldn't do anything to disrupt the hostages’ safety.”

“I will consider your thoughts,” John said. “Any info on the perp or the hostage? Identities?”

“He is in his thirties. Caucasian. No ID, yet. Female hostage. Twenties. No ID. “

“Alright. I need communication with him,” John said.

Reviews:on Amazon:

This story is one to make you think about right and wrong and how easy it is to step over that "thin line" that divides them. Are there crimes so horrific that it's okay to take justice into your own hands? The killer certainly thinks so. You often hear, "Make the punishment fit the crime." If the monsters you come across in this story knew what their punishment would be, I bet they'd have had second thoughts about doing the beastly things they did. And yes, some of them will make you ill thinking about it. If you're sensitive to the cruelty one person can do to another human or an animal, you might want to pass on this book. Despite some editing hiccups, this is a book that kept my interest. The further I got into it, the more intense it became, with plenty of unexpected outcomes.

on Amazon:

The Thin Line is an accurate name for this vigilante crime novel. The law doesn’t always equate to justice. The separation in between right and wrong and retribution is indeed a thin line. The author shows us a detective with an uncanny knack for honing in on the bad guys. That skill is often brought out by his conversations with his bartender.
Once the stage is set and we find out the victims that detective is investigating are perpetrators of heinous crimes then us, the reader, starts to lose a little empathy for them. But, whoever is killing them is also an animal and that’s where the intrigue and the provocative thought process kicks in.
I found the book stimulating and can’t wait to read the next in the series.

on Amazon:

I believe that the goal of every writer regardless of what genre they write is to write a book that will stay with the reader after the last page.
You will read this book and in certain chapters, it will be so disturbing that you will wonder what is wrong with the guy writing this book, why is this book so DARK. Then you will stop and realize that crimes like this happen every single day. The author just finds a way of forcing you to deal with them.

Nature vs Nurture is one of the oldest arguments in the history of psychology, with no clear answer. This book will challenge all your beliefs. What causes one person to cross that line, is it a gut instinct, or something more?

After each chapter. you will ask yourself what could possibly happen next and how does this all tie together.

If Psychological Suspense is what you’re looking for this book delivers. I can only hope we get to revisit some of the main characters in a second book.

Excerpt:

He was making for the door. At first, Shamus thought it was Father Malone. But why would the priest be running down the aisle towards the exit?

Shamus called after him, “Malone? Malone, it's me, Shamus. What are you doing father?” The man stopped briefly before entering the narthex. He was tall and heavyset, unlike Malone.

Shamus shouted. “Hey, you! Stop right there. Whatever you're doing. Stop!” But the man was gone before he had finished speaking. Shamus gave chase, but by the time he got into the narthex, the main doors were wide open, and the man was long gone. Shamus ran outside into the wind and rain. But the only thing he saw was two ravens leaving their perches in an old oak tree, at the far end of the pathway. They seemed to be heading north, right into the heart of the storm.

READ MORE

Disheartened, Shamus went back inside and searched the building for any sign of Malone. But he was nowhere to be seen. However, what he found sent shivers down his spine.

The stone altar, which was not to be touched, had been broken in half, its religious paraphernalia cast to the floor and scattered about. On the inside of the broken altar was an empty cavity, large enough to fit a book or at least part of one. The church was nearly 300 years old, so whoever placed “whatever” inside the alter had done so a long time ago.

Humans have always been obsessed with aging and death. Throughout history, the quest for a way to remain forever young has consumed mankind. What if two men stumbled upon a way to ensure eternal youth? What if it changes their lives, not only for the better, but in ways they never could have imagined?

Immortal is a story filled with adventure, mystery, and thrilling twists. Follow these men as they stumble upon not only their greatest discovery, but possibly their ultimate undoing.

Excerpt:

Daniel woke to Tim’s pleading.
“Daniel are you awake? I keep hearing footsteps in the hallway.”
Daniel glanced at the bed-side clock. “It’s 3:00. Go back to sleep.”
“No, seriously, go check it out.”
“Why me?”
“Wait, listen.”
Daniel got up, walked to the door and put his ear against the wood. What he heard sent chills down his spine. Slow, deliberate footsteps coming from the end of the hallway. Too slow to be an actual person. Too deliberate to be the gait of someone out for a late stroll.
“Holy shit, dude.”
“What the fuck is it? Go check.”
“Why me, you coward?”
“You brought us here. It was your idea. You need to go check it out.”
“Why don’t we just go back to sleep? The steps obviously aren’t meant to do us any harm.”
“How do we know that?”
“Because they haven’t tried to get into our room yet.”
“Yet? Maybe you can accept yet.

You seem to like ghosts. I on the other hand, despise the whole concept.”
Suddenly the steps ceased exactly in front of their door.
“Daniel, what the fuck!” Tim whispered.
Daniel reached for the doorknob.
“Wait, don’t,” Tim whispered hoarsely.
Daniel put a finger up towards his frightened friend. Slowly he turned the knob and eased the door open. Tim pulled the covers over his head. Daniel stepped into the hall.

A Unique and Thrilling Read.

Immortal is unlike any novel I’ve previously read. The author seamlessly combines mystery, suspense, and philosophy into a superb tale about life, death, and everything in between. I highly recommend this novel.

on Amazon:

Can we reverse the aging process by thoughts and actions?

Very impressive novel, never mind first novel! David tells a well-rounded story and makes his characters real and compelling. I like the shorter chapters as it kept me wanting to keep turning the pages and see what happened next. Add in two major surprises and David took me for quite a ride. Looking forward to what comes next!!

Where do the lines blur between justice and sacrifice?

Run by the beautiful and charismatic woman known only as Bow, Themis is an organisation created with the sole purpose of doling out justice—justice that picks up where the law fails. When fifteen-year-old Liberty begins questioning the very essence of what she’d been taught all her life, those who have nurtured her are faced with the decision to either continue to give her the protection she has been allowed or seal her fate within its walls.

No matter their decision, each follower is weighed down by the consequences of their decisions as they establish where their true loyalty lies. With the list of those missing growing, the police continue to be frustrated as they attempt to uncover what’s really going on.

As Pippa and Alfie begin to unravel the web of lies and deceit that cover Themis’ trail, they endanger many lives, including their own and those closest to them. As their tips run cold and the body count increases, the police are drawn into a cat-and-mouse game with an underground vigilante and her dedicated followers, with a taste for blood and an absolute sense of justice.

One young woman holds the key, but will she turn the locks of Themis?

Excerpt:

“Hello, Beverly,” a strong, feminine voice said as the shadowed figure walked leisurely towards the desperate woman. Bev blinked, trying to get her eyes to focus on the image in front of her. “Do you know who I am?” the lady asked, getting closer to Bev’s position.
Bev simply shook her head.
“I’m Bow. Your saviour. I will change your fate. I will get you the justice you deserve. Do you want to live, or do you want to die?”
The woman asked Bev this question with the casualness of whether she would like to go out for lunch. The lady now kneeled in front of her. Bow’s legs were barely covered by the skimpy red dress she wore, matching her deep-dyed red hair which curled neatly around her face. Two tattoos were visible on her thigh. Bev recognised it. The scales and the sword. Her clouded memory wouldn’t allow her to access any more information about those tattoos. Somewhere in Bev

“Live,” she whispered. Her eyes felt heavy. It did not matter how much she tried to resist, her eyelids fell and dropped with ease. Her last thought was not one based on fear, or panic, but of comfort, safety, and control.

Whilst this book is as far away from my comfort zone as you can possibly get, I LOVED it!! Quite some time ago, I read this author's first book, Valor Diamond. That was good - but this is a belter! I cannot believe how mature her writing has become. She's really grown as an author. And let me tell you, she has a sick mind!! So, Themis. What's it all about? Well, without giving too much away, it's an organisation headed up by the fearsome Bow; a woman you definitely don't want to mess with or get on the wrong side of. With her team of followers, Bow is hell bent on bringing her own kind of justice to certain people who have wronged her throughout her life. Yes she is a nasty piece of work, but by the end of the book I felt real sympathy towards her and completely 'got' her. The book is gory, and really difficult to read in places. Be warned, it contains graphic descriptions of physical child abuse and an incident of animal cruelty, so if you find these subjects hard to deal with you might want to steer clear! Me on the other hand, am desperate for a sequel because the ending is sooo ripe for a follow up. Brilliant stuff.

Lydia Haigh on https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/47788667 wrote:

This novel is a page turner if ever I’ve read one! After only reading the first few sentences I found myself already enthralled in the somewhat twisted and intriguing plot, and with the quick paced story-telling that the author achieves, it is one that could easily be unravelled in one sitting. With dark themes and disturbing imagery throughout, this novel manages to encapsulate the feeling of “not-wanting-to-look-but-can’t-look-away” within the reader (in the best way). The author’s use of various perspectives in each chapter of the novel allows the reader further insight to all of her characters, and I was surprised when I found that I actually felt for, and could understand the ‘villain’ of the piece: Bow, whose actions throughout are very difficult to justify. Themis is a captivating read that will have you constantly wondering how this is going to pan out, along with shuddering, and will leave you wanting more. I highly recommend, provided that you’re not too squeamish!

Excerpt:

Gail stormed into the house, out the front and slammed the door. I opened my mouth to say…I don’t know, something, when the door flew open.

"For the record," Gail announced loudly as she marched back into the ring, "I didn't know he was married! It's not my fault his wife was so busy breeding she didn't even notice his wandering gaze. He lied to me just as much as he lied to her, so I don't see why you're so pissed at me, Hope. I didn't do anything to you.”

"Ladies," I pleaded with a panicked grin. "Let's go back to our pleasant non-male hating conversation. Please? Hope? Your truck?"

"Shut up!" they shouted in unison.

Hope strode across her patio to stand face to face with Gail. Picture a steel cage match minus the screaming drunks and you'll come close to what I witnessed. I was hoping for a handshake and goodwill. Not today.

"So, tell me, homewrecker. Did you have to pay for your abortion, or did it come out of his wife's purse?"

Gail shook her head, a savage grin on her face. "You're pathetic. No wonder your husband cheats on you."

"Get! Out!" Hope screamed and snatched Dempsey's iced tea glass. I didn't know if she really would have thrown it at Gail's head, but fortunately, Gail didn't wait around to find out. She ducked back into the house and a moment later we heard the front door slam again as she exited out to the front yard.

“So, when do we leave to get my grill?” Dempsey asked. Both Hope and I turned and stared at him.

Reviews:on Amazon:

I received an ARC copy of Brian Fagan's "Dempsey's Grill", and as with all books, I wondered what I was getting. I finished Chapter One and knew Fagan's book was a winner. He provided a full range of emotions. I loved some characters, wanted to strangle one, and had one or two that bounced between love and hate. The relationships between the characters were genuine, and by the time I reached the end, I had fond feelings for all of them, even the one I wanted to strangle. Fagan's writing is smooth, fluid, and took me from event to event, making me feel like I was part of the story. It was a quick, thoroughly enjoyable read, and I recommend it with no reservations.

on Amazon:

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this book and I'm glad I did. It's been a while since I read a story that left me with a smile on my face at the end.

Dempsey's Grill tells the story of Gibson, a teacher who is fired and dumped by his girlfriend (one of the most insufferable characters you'll ever meet on a book page) and has no choice, at the age of twenty-nine, but to move back to his home town and in with his parents. There he meets up with childhood friend, Dempsey, who has a crazy idea about opening up a grill that sells the best burgers in town. Joining in on this venture is Gibson's first love, Gail; an old neighbor who he last saw when they were fifteen, and someone who brings out the best in him. As they help Dempsey achieve his dream, hijinks ensue, friendships are tested, Gibson learns about his own family and self, and what he truly needs to be happy.

Bryan J. Fagan writes in such a fun, conversational tone that you'll feel like your hearing this story from your best friend. I definitely recommend this book for those looking for a feel-good story that teaches you a little something about growing up when you're already supposed to be grown, and the relationships that help shape you.

on Amazon:

I was gifted a copy of this book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The characters were quirky but believable and it was fun to see them grow as the story evolved. I appreciate a good belly laugh and this book delivered many. I love reading first novels because they usually unearth a wonderful story that has just been waiting to be hatched. Fagan delivers...

on Amazon:

Dempsey’s Grill is a quirky, delayed maturity, coming of age story. Gibson and his best friend, Dempsey, are on the cusp of turning 30, the age they believe is their last chance to get their acts together and perform as fully functioning adults. Their lives are going nowhere fast. Neither of them has a real job or relationship, and the time is now or never. Their decision to start a burger joint plunges them in the deep end of the occupational pool, and their efforts to figure out what the heck they’re doing provide an amusing romp. Adorable, relatable characters make the reader root for them to succeed, and the crazy plot twists keep you guessing. The satisfying ending ties up all the story threads. No cliff-hangers, this is a complete stand-alone.

on Amazon:

Dempsey' s Grill is a quick witted, fun and emotional ride that you will not want to end! The characters are loveable and real, always providing a giggle or a gasp. A wonderfully told, heartwarming story of the joys and perils of youthful ambition. I highly recommend treating yourself to this well written, very enjoyable read by Bryan Fagan.

on Amazon:

Dempsey's Grill is full of coming of age, you CAN go home again fun. Best friends reunite in their home town and decide to open a burger place. Some shenanigans ensue as they set out to accomplish this task, and , of course, there is a love interest as well. You will enjoy the characters Bryan Fagan has created. I would enjoy more by this author and you will too!
Pick up Dempsey's Grill and loose yourself in this delightful book.

on Amazon:

While this is not the type of book I typically read, I thoroughly enjoyed it. From the very beginning, I felt as though the author was telling me the story himself. Fagan created a delightful group of characters, from likeable to deplorable and yet somehow managed to make me like them all by the end. Watching the characters grow and mature through their antics and challenges was both funny and heartwarming. I recommend this book for anybody who wants a quick, light, enjoyable read.

Why did life have to be so difficult at times?

Zoe never imagined she would find herself having to choose between two men—or should she say angels. As exciting as that sounds, the need to make a decision is tearing her apart. Does she choose the irresistible one who ignites her body with his passionate kisses, or the wild, untamed one?

Orion found his fated mate the second he saw her in the reflecting pool. He knows that Zoe wants him—but, he isn’t the only one that she wants. His nemesis, Mercury, is her co-guardian and is vying for her attention. Mercury is a rebel—wild and untamed. As co-guardian to Zoe, he feels the need to protect the sexy human woman he has been assigned to. The trouble is he wants more, but he isn’t the only one.

Zoe wants both men, but not all angels will share. Torn between the two angels, she must choose only one. Who will capture her heart—and will the other accept her decision as final?

Excerpt:

Zoe placed her hand on his arm with a smile. She felt the hidden strength of tight muscles beneath his grey and white striped shirt. “Walking is fine. It’s a nice night.”

“Yes, it is,” Orion agreed, leading them across the street and in through the double doors of the standalone coffee shop. After heading to the counter, they retrieved their drinks and settled for a table in the corner by a window.

“This is really nice,” Zoe said, placing her drink on the round wooden table. “Oh, thank you,” she added, dropping down onto the seat Orion swept out for her. Zoe glanced outside briefly, admiring the night sky before returning her attention to Orion.

They started the conversation with a bit of background history, sharing how long they’d been in the area, and other small talk when Orion interjected: “It was fortunate we met, specifically since you said you were on a date with a gentleman caller.”

Zoe smirked. “Oh, you mean the guy I was with. Yeah.”

“I take it things didn’t go well,” Orion said. They looked at each other in the brief silence. “I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to pry.”

“Oh no. That’s okay. It didn’t.” Zoe paused for a moment, contemplating if she should say what was on her mind. She decided to be bold and speak up. “I know this is going to sound like a pick up line, but I have to know. What’s a handsome man like you doing single, or are you, really?”

When Alexander Sullivan returned to his hometown of Cedar Falls, Louisiana after a seven-year absence, he had no idea his heart would still react to her. Julia Whitmore was his closest friend when they were children, but things were different, and she was now off-limits to him. Still, it is the forbidden fruit that is often the sweetest and most desired, but a taste will cost them dearly.

After a brief love affair, Alexander’s obligations to his family tear him away from Julia, leaving her broken beyond repair and her reputation in ruins. With time against her, she must resort to scandal and deceit to secure a husband before it’s too late.

 

Is Eric Dalton as ignorant as Julia believes, or is he hiding his own dark secrets and motives?

Excerpt:

Instantly, Julia’s face burned red with embarrassment. Slowly, she lifted her eyes from the ground and met his sapphire blue gaze.

Her breaths quickened, her heart fluttered, and her knees threatened to crumble under the weight of his stare.

All of her self-control came cascading down at the sight of his wide, dimpled smile. Oh, how she missed that smile.

Tears began to sting the inner corners of her eyes. She tried to fight them back but failed. The warm liquid dripped down her cheeks, and onto her lips as Alexander’s steps brought him closer to her.

His heart was in an uproar. It hammered against the wall of his chest with wild anticipation to have his arms around her.

He saw no one else in that moment.

No one else mattered.

Alexander took longer more vigorous steps to close the distance that would finally bring him face to face with Julia.

Upon reaching her, he wrapped his arms around her, pulled her close to his chest and kissed the top of her head before lifting her to the sky.

“You cannot possibly know how much I’ve missed you,” he confessed in a velvet whisper as he brought her back down, and into his arms again. The feel of her so close brought life and blood back into his limbs, which until this moment felt numb and useless. He took a deep breath as his cheek rested against her golden curls and welcomed the jasmine scent that filled him and awakened his soul.  He could not believe the gorgeous woman before him was the same frail creature he left behind. She had filled out in all the right places and had become even more beautiful than he remembered.

“You are absolutely breathtaking,” he said as his forehead touched hers gently.

Julia blushed and cleared her throat in an attempt to silence her rapidly increasing pulse.  He stole her words, her very breath and her heart all in a moment’s time. She wanted to forget the painful past without him, the hole in her heart that he carved with his seven-year silence. But she promised herself she would never forgive him.

Is it Enough

 

What if this is it?
Is it enough?

I loved
I taught
I touched

You used me

 

Even when my heart was far from you, You used me.

 

I don’t need accolades
You used me to touch a life

That is enough

A small pebble can break the surface of the ocean

 

“Do not despise small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin”     ~ Zechariah 4:10

Five Stars! *****

While this book was written by a women, and I suspect is largely for women, I have no doubt many men will be rewarded for reading it as well. Further, age shouldn’t be a limiter. Today’s youngsters (and oldsters) are being subjected to what they might believe to be unimaginable trials. Without the kind of hope expressed in this book, the wrong choice might be seen as the only choice.

Surely, this is a book written from a spiritual perspective by someone who has risen from deep anguish. "The Beauty of Grace - Writings of a Broken Life Healed by Grace" serves up short, but direct, messages of inspiration to seek The True Healer...the real choice.

This old guy enjoyed reading this book and I feel stronger because of it.
