Yup, it's the dreaded Back to School 2020 Jumaji version.

Lots of decisions, and none of them easy. 

For us, who have already been homeschooling, life has just rolled on. But some of you are deciding to make BIG changes in your live, and others are rolling the dice with a lot of prayer. Either way, you're stressed, and you probably are really wishing for a vacation get away.

But when life, and Covid, says no, what do you do?

We were sent their new fragrance and stone pairing, Cosmic Karma with Amazonite, to check out! Cosmic Karma helps you to ask for clarity, to seek peace and relieve any sorrow or grief. The candle features a crystal on its label, to let you know immediately that it is special, like you are! This candle has the natural and fresh scent of eucalyptu,s and mint, known to help clear the mind. As you can see, even after multiple burnings, it is lasting very well. It produces a lovely scent, and bunrs very cleanly, giving your whole room a lovely peaceful feeling! I love the suction top lid, that helps to keep the candle from being exposed to any other aromas, and makes it perfect for carrying ith you, if you need to take it to your school room, or work!

The Amazonite rocks included come in a little gift bag, for an extra touch of thoughtfulness.Amazonite crystals can create a sense of calm as they pacify, soothe, and restore harmony. They are perfect to hold an meditate with, and also apparently to do your homeschool work with, as Miss Grace keeps taking them to hold while she's working! LOL. The crystals are smooth and really do offer a great hand feel. Maybe it's because after being polished they are allowed to sit back outside and to regain elements from the earth? Not sure, but they defintely give you a peaceful feeling!

Book Review: She's Got The Guns by MO Mack

Disclosure / Disclaimer: I received this ebook, free of charge,from Thrill House Publishing via #Netgalley, for review purposes on this blog. No other compensation, monetary or in kind, has been received or implied for this post. Nor was I told how to post about them. All opinions are my own.

The debut Thriller-Suspense in a new series from author M.O. Mack...

She's Got The Guns cover

What could possibly be worse than being beaten, broke, and on the run from a dangerous criminal? What if that criminal is your ex and works for the FBI?
Oh, and then there’s the tiny matter of landing a job. Not so easy for a woman on the run.
Which is why when Emily Rockford gets a gig, answering the phone for a “pest control” company, she thinks her luck is turning.
Until...she discovers the business is a cover.
For hit men. A big, dangerous, deadly group of them.
It’s just about the last place Emily wants to be, but as she’s about to find out, once you’re in, you’re in. There is no out. There is no quitting.
Will she embrace the dangerous world she’s stumbled onto? Or will she find a way to outrun them all?


Feeling like you need a new female heroine with a badder than bad 'mentor', with a little romantic will they/won't they thrown in? Yup, you've found her.

Emily is a character that you get attached to VERY quickly, as her story starts to come out, and see she is evolving (and very quickly). Then once the truth of her new employment comes out, the sparks start to fly all over (literally from gunfire and explosions, and in the figurative romance department). This is a story you read and in your head, you're casting the movie (that you really really want to see, but are afraid the inevitable casting will let you down from the vision in your head (sigh)). Be very prepared to sit down and not want to get up as once this story grabs you, its a speedball on a runway, until the end, which leaves you literally begging for more (good thing this is the beginning of a series! DONT miss this one!

AND lucky YOU- it's on sale on Kindle for ONLY $2.99- RUN and grab this fun book!

About the Author:

Obviously, M.O. Mack is a cover. Don’t bother looking for the author’s true identity. He/she must remain secret due to the sensitive information written in his/her stories…

Okay, most of all that is total rubbish! M.O. is a full-time author from the great state of Arizona, who loves making stuff up and hates a slow story. The faster the better! Most days, M.O. tries to avoid the news (too violent) so it doesn’t interfere with writing funny, but quasi-violent stories.

Book Review: Murder in the Bayou Boneyard by Ellen Byron

Disclosure / Disclaimer: I received this ebook, free of charge,from Crooked Lane Books via #Netgalley, for review purposes on this blog. No other compensation, monetary or in kind, has been received or implied for this post. Nor was I told how to post about them. All opinions are my own.

Ready for some HALLOWEEN fun?
You Do know we're only 100 (!!!) days away?

I know, we can't even THINK what this year might hold, but for now, 
you can read this cozy mystery and dream....

Maggie Crozat has the Halloween heebie-jeebies in USA Today bestselling and Agatha Award-winning author Ellen Byron's howlingly funny sixth Cajun Country mystery.

Murder in the Bayou Boneyard  cover


Maggie Crozat, proprietor of a historic Cajun Country B&B, prefers to let the good times roll. But hard times rock her hostelry when a new cell phone app makes it easy for locals to rent their spare rooms to tourists. With October--and Halloween--approaching, she conjures up a witch-crafty marketing scheme to draw visitors to Pelican, Louisiana.

Five local plantation B&Bs host "Pelican's Spooky Past" packages, featuring regional crafts, unique menus, and a pet costume parade. Topping it off, the derelict Dupois cemetery is the suitably sepulchral setting for the spine-chilling play Resurrection of a Spirit. But all the witchcraft has inevitably conjured something: her B&B guests are being terrified out of town by sightings of the legendary rougarou, a cross between a werewolf and vampire.

When, in the Dupois cemetery, someone costumed as a rougarou stumbles onstage during the play--and promptly gives up the ghost, the rougarou mask having been poisoned with strychnine, Maggie is on the case. But as more murders stack up, Maggie fears that Pelican's spooky past has nothing on its bloodcurdling present


Of course we LOVE this series, as it is set in Louisiana! But more than that, Ellen makes sure to add our local flavor into every cozy mystery in this fun series, and this time it's the Rougarou (please note, we capitalize it, cause you KNOW, Boogie Man and all...LOL)In this fun Halloween story, the local B&B's are trying to help each other out as they face undue competition from a AirBNB type magnate. For Maggie's family it comes at a bad time, as distant relatives come to visit. But little do they know this isn't just reunion time. As it gets closer to Halloween, the bodies start stacking up, and of course Maggie is right there in the middle, and it's down to her, and her family, to figure out what is really happening! A fun, quick read, it will make you pine for the chill days of fall (especially if like us, you're in 100 degree heat!)
