Have you ever watched your dog suddenly start chasing his/her tail? Out of nowhere, an urge strikes and they’re off in circles! I love this! It makes me giggle every time and I’m so envious of this unfiltered, undecided show of spontaneity. Do you think you’re spontaneous? Yes, you say? But are you THIS spontaneous?

As humans, we think we need to control and plan everything. This is the protection we have against the unknown. The fight-or-flight mentality. From the time we are children, we are instructed to prepare. From the Boy Scout motto to SAT exams for college, the theme is always about constructing a plan!

Let’s become more spontaneous. Be creative. Nothing is off-limits! – Maureen Scanlon

This episode is about positive changes, unconditional love, connecting body and mind and thoughts in between – and will be listening to Maureen Scanlon who is an Author, Relationship Expert, Motivational Speaker, Positive Change Integrator, and Spiritual Coach.

Reviews – Kim Carter Mysteries – New “Clara and Iris Mystery” Series is Every Where!

Author, Kim Carter Book Launch Is Happening and Her Novel Series Has Released and The Editorial Reviews Are Here!

###

ENAS REVIEW – Sweet Dreams, Baby Belle

A Mystery Suspense Thriller in every sense of the Word.”

With eminently admirable characters and exquisite imagination ‘Sweet Dreams, Baby Belle’ is a compelling read where Author Kim Carter crafts mounting suspense that overwhelms skepticism, as this Book One of her series prepares for.

Charming personality of renowned cardiac surgeon Dr. Grant Chatsworth lures a small town waitress-Lizzie to a deceptive ‘blissful happy marriage’ until secrets confined within the walls of Buckhead’s finest estates elucidate Lizzie about the darker nasty shades of Grant’s propensity of crime and cruelty. Terrible adversity and troubled faith lead Lizzie to take refuge at her sister Maggie’s doorstep, where destiny has more alarming adventures in store for her.

Author Kim Carter’s read is a mystery suspense thriller in every sense of the word with an intriguing narrative that moves at a breakneck pace, skillfully combined with a writing style that provides vivid mental pictures of the settings and characters sufferings. While many things are not what they seem, everything amazingly connects in a surprising finale.

Entertaining enough to engage even reluctant readers, as ‘Sweet Dreams, Baby Belle’ is a Powerful5-star page turner that we highly recommended.

As Book Two of Kim’s Novel Series is Launched… And reviews are Fabulous for “Murder Among The Tombstones!” and is now “Nominated For a TCK 2017 Readers Choice Book Award”


####

Editorial Reviews:

“The wait is finally over and Author Kim Carter has blessed the readers with another great suspense -filled read.” 

Her dynamic pen is one of the smoothest I have read. As a reader, I must be able to replay an author’s words in my head, creating a consistent, flowing movie full of action and emotion.  Carter has a gift for detail, dropping things here and there, just enough to give me a mental picture. She grabbed me and twisted me up in her world and kept me on my toes from the first paragraph. I felt myself running through the woods and experiencing all the anxiety and fear Jasmine felt. I felt like the detective trying to solve the crime with them.

Who was this man with those perfect white teeth and why did he do this to such a beautiful young girl. Private Investigators Iris Hadley and Clara Samples are my girls. These ladies are a great combination. There is never a dull day at Hadley and Samples Investigations. You would never believe they were in their 70’s.

Jessica Fletcher watch out!…The way they banter back and forth is hilarious. I love these two.

Quita is just the icing on the cake. Author Kim Carter developed the storylines so brilliantly before merging them together with such a smooth transition, causing nothing but pure drama till the end.From reading previous books from this author, I can see that she has not lost her touch. She has developed another hard-hitting read from start to finish.
I highly recommend anything this author writes.
~Reviewer Lissha Sadler

Widows on The Case!

Two crafty septuagenarian widows turned private investigators; a crabby Atlanta cop recovering from a gunshot wound, and a cunning killer who dumps his victims rather appropriately in cemeteries. Those are just a few of the zesty ingredients in Murder among the Tombstones, the latest whodunit by Georgia-based mystery writer Kim Carter. It is a fast-paced, twister of a mystery that keeps you turning pages until the very end.

Private Investigators Iris Hadley and Clara Samples may be in their seventies, but don’t think they are over the hill. These ladies are witty, wily and with it. A Must Read!”

A former correspondent for The Chicago Tribune and Award Winning Author of The Billy Battles Trilogy ~Ronald Yates.

MURDER AMONG THE TOMBSTONES by KIM CARTER

Detectives are investigating the murder of a young woman. She was found in a local cemetery wrapped in a blanket. The case goes cold when all leads dry up.”

The victim’s sister turns to private investigators for help. Meet Iris and Clara … brand new to the business. These women are not your typical investigators. For one, they are both widowed and both in their 70s.

When a second body turns up in a different cemetery, the ladies turn to the detectives, who incidentally have both been shot and are on medical leave.  Along with their office associate, Quita, the ladies are determined to stop at nothing to find the killer before someone else dies …. at least they will as soon as they figure out how their new I-phones work.

I have chuckled more with the antics of these very unique and quirky characters from the very first page. This is not a cozy. The mystery is solid, with characters that are credible. The interactions of Iris and Clara will have the reader shaking their heads, maybe remembering grandma or great aunt in their golden years.

I do hope to see more adventures of Iris and Clara. Many thanks to the author for the digital copy of this humorous crime thriller mix. (Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own)…  An Amazing Mystery Read!

~Linda Strong Book Reviews

WILMINGTON, NC, December 01, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ — Rico Austin, author of ‘My Bad Tequila’, has been named as a finalist in the ’50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading’ Book Awards Contest. His honors came as a result of his appearance on The Authors Show. Rico Austin was chosen from a field of hundreds of authors through a public voting process. ‘My Bad Tequila’ details one man’s epic journey across two continents and four countries with 50 years of adventure. But 1986 changed everything forever when one event devastated the lives of 19 students, three chaperones, and one bus driver. Was it the tequila?

I felt the need to share the perils of binge drinking, engaging in irresponsible sex and what happens when college and high school students don’t think twice about what happens when bad decisions are made and acted upon.”

“Thinking about sending your ‘Kids’ to paradise unsupervised? THINK AGAIN.”

“You’ll see the true reflection of me when the tequila bottle is empty.” – Rico Austin

SUMMARY: Unlike her meadowland friends, Matilda doesn’t want
to leap onto ledges or bound across fields, she only wants to fly.
At first,
Matilda’s friends laugh at her because she doesn’t have wings. They wonder: How
can a creature without wings ever hope to fly?
While Matilda progresses through
the various stages of her metamorphosis from egg to butterfly, her friends
recall how they felt before they were able to do all of the things they had
dreamed of doing and how hard they had to keep trying to do all of those
things. Encouraged by her meadowland friends, MATILDA learns that if she tries
hard enough and long enough, she can do anything that she really wants to do.
