AT Once Book Tour and Giveaway


New Release....
Alex Troutt Thriller, Book #3
AT Once
“If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything.”

FBI Agent Alex Troutt has no intentions of falling for anything. Apparently, neither do the bad guys, as the Boston area is once again targeted by extremists. Boston Strong of just a few years ago is now Boston on Edge. And this time, the targets are men of the cloth—priests.

At least that’s how it looks at first.

As investigators struggle to make sense of the bombings, Alex is thrown for a loop when the FBI assistant director asks her to investigate one of their own—a colleague and friend who is suspected of having ties to a known terrorist. Torn between her values of friendship and the oath she gave when she accepted her FBI credentials, Alex must now lead two investigations simultaneously.

The bombings don’t stop, and panic sets in as the carnage spreads beyond the realm of the original targets.

Bloody Sunday. The IRA. The movement toward peace. Wounds of decades ago have reopened, bleeding all over Boston. As she pieces together the puzzle, Alex begins to wonder just how innocent her colleague really is. It’s almost too much for her to fathom.

Just how far will someone go to make a stand?

AT Bay (An Alex Troutt Thriller, Book #1)
Alexandra Giordano never knew she had it so good. Until it was all gone in an instant.

As she begins her daunting quest to uncover the black spots on her memory, what she finds isn’t sweet or charming or even pleasant. And that’s when she begins to question everything, including herself.

Her work as a Special Agent for the FBI is only a distraction, serving as a mental metronome…anything to crank the gears of her feeble mind.

And then it happens—a bizarre, ritualistic murder. She loses herself in her work, fully immersed in the investigation. Unable to recall even her own kids, she’s somehow able to formulatecoherent theories on what type of person could pull off such a sickening act.

As her mind slowly plugs a few memory gaps, her emotions are scrambled by the reality of herworlds colliding. And the resulting explosion tears her in two.

Can she pick up all the incendiary fragments to solve the twisted crime while she clings to somesemblance of sanity?

One woman can only keep so much…AT Bay.

AT Large (An Alex Troutt Thriller, Book #2)

The pursuit of the truth. The hunt for a life.


For the first time in months, FBI Special Agent Alex Troutt feels almost normal, hanging out at a local bar with friends after work. Not long into the evening she stumbles over one of the most disturbing images she has ever seen.

And that’s only the beginning.

A body is found in Lowell, the human damage, once again, inconceivable. Hours later, another strike. Pushing heartache aside, Alex immerses herself in the investigation. But with every new clue comes a new twist.

With the killing spree drawing the attention of every intelligence and law enforcement agency in a five-state radius, Alex is forced to partner with an egomaniac from the CIA. Yet, even with limitless resources, every step forward proves to be a step too late, the kill list seemingly endless.

Once the killer makes it personal, Alex is left with no other option—she must confront the person who destroyed her life to try to cease the vicious murders. And when she finally learns the killer’s end game, every second counts if she has any hope of stopping the brutal killings.

The hunt will end. Will Alex?

MY HONEST REVIEW OF At Once

Someone is blowing up priests. Alex Trout and her fellow FBI agents can’t seem to make a connection to each of the bombings. As if that’s not enough on her plate, the FBI Assistant Director has “asked” Alex to secretly investigate her own boss and friend, Supervisory Special Agent Jerry Molloy. It seems Molloy has been associating with a suspected terrorist. Could Alex be wrong about her colleague? It’s up to her to find out.


I like how Alex always gets put on the spot but never backs down. Challenge seems to be her middle name. She’s fiercely loyal, but will always seek the truth. I love how John Mefford always gives you a glimpse of the criminal’s point of view, as well as history of the city depicted in the story. That makes it even more interesting for the reader.

MY HONEST REVIEW OF Go Clean, Sexy You

I have never done a detox before, so this program intimidated me. But, at the same time, it interested me. With the possibility of sleeping better, losing some weight, and even having more energy, it drew me in like a moth to a flame. Is this something I can do? Or should do? The answer to both is yes. We all have toxins in our systems that keep us from our full potential selves. I already knew that, I just thought that a detox wasn’t worth the trouble of doing it.


With this program, the author has done all the work for you. She includes recipes and shopping lists, so that all you have to do is plan ahead and commit. I am at the planning stage right now, and looking forward to beginning my own detox. I’m feeling positive about it and can’t wait to see my results.

I WROTE THIS BOOK FOR YOU BECAUSE… 

I know first-hand how it feels to be overwhelmed with all the diets, quick fix plans out there in the world. 

I obsessed about my weight, and wrote endless to-do lists. I counted calories and carbs, took all kinds of vitamins, and worked out until I nearly keeled over. All the while, I dreamed of the day I’d be lean and fit and full of energy and confidence – the day I’d finally feel like I was “good enough”.

Nothing worked though. I’d start off well, and then a few weeks later, I’d go straight back to my old ways. Each time I dieted, it made me feel more and more exhausted, depressed and out of shape, as I beat myself up for not having the willpower to make it work. 

 And even though I was trying so hard to be healthier, the reality was that I was getting sicker. I had chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, rosacea, chronic cystitis, candida, thyroid issues and IBS… all before I was 30! I didn’t want to take meds, so I tried holistic therapies, got certified in holistic nutrition and my world changed. 

I developed my own detox programs that I based on anti-inflammatory foods (fruits, veggies, and dark leafy greens), and started limiting inflammatory foods (dairy, gluten, caffeine, alcohol and processed sugar). 

 And for the first time in life, I started to see the results I’d dreamed of. I lost weight, felt lean and light, and had pep in my step. But best of all, I started feeling at ease around food. Instead of looking for quick fixes and diet programs, I started listening to my body, and letting it tell me what it needed. 

For years, I used food as an enemy and after stepping back and truly listening to my body, I am now free of letting bad habits and twisted views of food run my life. I want you to experience the same freedom… and I’m here to guide you every step of the way with Go Clean, Sexy You. 


 Plus I want you to feel AMAZING! 


Based on the results of the thousands of women (and super cool dudes) AND my own experience, here’s what you can expect: 

  • all-day energy that starts the moment you wake up and doesn’t quit 
  •  the best sleep of your life: deep, blissful, uninterrupted rest the whole night long 
  •  clothes that look – and feel – better on you than they have done in years 
  •  a 4-10 pound weight loss (on average); could be more depending on your specific body and lifestyle 
  •  a happier gut: bloating and bowel problems become a thing of the past 
  •  no more cravings: the longing for sugar, caffeine and all the other nasties disappears 
  •  a clearer mind: that frustrating brain fog melts away, and you can finally focus again 
  •  increased sex drive (oh yeah!) 
  •  a radiant, natural beauty emerges: you’re suddenly awash in compliments about your clear, dewy skin; bright sparkling eyes; and soft, shiny hair 
  •  better immunity: getting rid of the toxins takes a load off your immune system, so you’re less likely to catch any of the bugs going around 
  •  renewed confidence in yourself: you can’t even remember when you last felt this sexy, vibrant and alive 
AND being a part of something bigger than just recipes… a movement where we stand up for our health and truly tap into our bodies wisdom so that our loved ones can join us and be healthy too.

River of Love Book Tour and Giveaway



New Release........
Book #3 The Bradens of Peaceful Harbor


Fall in love with Sam Braden in the Bradens of Peaceful Harbor. Hot, sexy, & wickedly naughty second cousins to the Weston, Colorado Bradens we know and love.

River rafting and adventure company owner Sam Braden works hard and plays harder. He’s fast, focused, and determined—and never at a loss for a willing woman to share his time with. The trouble is, the only woman he wants refuses him at every turn.

Physician assistant Faith Hayes escaped her painful past and built a safe, happy life in Peaceful Harbor. She’s also put what she’s learned to good use helping others by founding Women Against Cheaters, an online support group. When her boss’s sinfully sexy brother sets his sights on sweet Faith, she knows the self-professed player is everything she shouldn’t want, and she’s determined to resist him.

Sam pulls out all the stops, proving to Faith that his past doesn’t have to define his future. As she lets down her guard and begins to trust Sam, intense conversations turn to intimate pleasures. But when real life steps in and their pasts collide, it’s Faith who’s left with something to prove.

RIVER OF LOVE is part of the Love in Bloom series. While this can be read as a stand-alone novel, for even more reading enjoyment you may want to read the entire Love in Bloom series in series order.

MY HONEST REVIEW OF River of Love

Sam Braden had a reputation of “love em and leave em”. Faith Hayes wasn’t that kind of girl, so she knew she should keep her distance. Once Sam was drawn to her though, he was determined for her to see his true self, the one hidden behind the well-known reputation. It won’t be easy, but Sam Braden does like a challenge.


Who would have guessed that a man with that type of reputation could be so romantic? Faith didn’t have a chance. How can you resist a man who practically owns the outdoors? Both of them had many obstacles to overcome. I loved both of them together, but my favorite part of all was the conversation between Sam and his mom. Ya gotta love a guy who shows respect for his mother.
