41vTqabc7hL

 

Lizzie St. Laurent is dealing with many of the struggles of young life. She lost her grandmother, and her living arrangements. Her new roommate abandoned her, and she’s working multiple jobs just to keep her head above water.

She inherits an old hat from her grandmother’s estate, but it belonged to her grandfather. This is no ordinary hat, but a being from an alternate dimension. One with special powers.

Lizzie and the hat don’t exactly hit it off right away, but when her best friend’s newborn is kidnapped by a ring of baby traffickers, Lizzie turns to the hat for help. This leads her deep into her family history and a world she’s never known.

Lizzie gives up everything to rescue the babies. She loses her jobs, and may wind up in jail before it’s over. Along the way, she and the hat may have a new way of making ends meet.

Humorous and fun, The Hat is novella length. Wonderful escapism for an afternoon.

 

 

About the Author

61eDgTYsBIL._SY200_

I was born in a town called Elko, Nevada. I like to tell everyone I was born in a small town in the 1940s. I’m not quite that old, but Elko has always been a little behind the times. This gives me a unique perspective of earlier times, and other ways of getting by. Some of this bleeds through into my fiction.

I moved to Idaho right after the turn of the century, and never looked back. My writing career was born here, with access to other writers and critique groups I jumped in with both feet.

I like to write about things that have something unusual. My works are in the realm of science fiction, paranormal, and fantasy. The goal is to entertain you for a few hours. I hope you enjoy the ride.

My Review

I was drawn to this book from the numerous great reviews I’ve read and I’m glad I decided to pick it up!

A young woman, devastated by the recent loss of her grandmother, asks her uncle for a keepsake. He brushes off her request, anxious to sell everything on the estate to make money. Hurt, Lizzie grabs a box from the moving truck and races home with it, unaware that she’s just become the beneficiary of a magical hat. The hat is from an alternate dimension and comes with a host of special powers.

When Lizzie learns of the kidnapping of her best friend’s newborn, she implores the hat to help her find the baby. Instead, they find an international baby trafficking ring and must work together to save the children before they disappear forever.

This story is by turns, funny, suspenseful, quirky, and an all-round enjoyable read!

I give The Hat 4 lovely kisses!

Everyone needs a little #romance in their lives… Sweet and Sassy Valentine #Boxset #mgtab


SSValentine-Allauthors

 

If you’ve ever been struck by Cupid’s Arrow, you know Love has the power to change you and your world. . . If you’ve ever been in love, then you know there is no feeling more exquisite than being held by the one you love.

Readers choose to read Romance fiction because it speaks to their need to love and be loved.

Authors choose to write romance because they understand that Love is the greatest force on earth. We write, not fantasy, but the reality that love can be found when one least expects it. Just ask any senior citizen who is in love what it feels like. She or he will tell you that it feels the same way at eighty as it felt at eighteen.

We wanted each of you to have a special Valentine romance to cherish so we created this collection with stories of varying “heat” levels—from sweet romance to downright sexy—so you’re bound to find the kind of romance you love.

We, the twelve authors of SWEET AND SASSY ROMANCE, dedicate this Valentine Collection to you, the Hopeful Romantic!

Keep hoping. You can never tell whom you may meet tomorrow or whom you may already know that you suddenly see in a different way.

As I always say, “It’s never too late to live Happily Ever After!”
