1st Review!

*****Talent Tuesday is postponed today.
The woman who was supposed to be my guest is in an area of the US that is badly flooded. I told her not to worry about the blog post and to take care of herself and her surroundings. Please keep her and those others in similar situations in your thoughts and prayers.*****

Instead, I'm happy to share with you my very first review for my next book, Carry Me Home! The book will be released on June 5th. Here's the blurb for it:

After six months in the city, Mary MacDougall returns to the Scottish Highlands to finalize her divorce. Because of a past tragedy, she doubts her husband Jamie can possibly love her with the same unbridled passion as before and insists ending the marriage is best for both of them. But Jamie has other ideas….

Jamie MacDougall has no intention of letting his bonnie lass go. At least not without a fight. Aye, they’ve suffered heartache, and she may be ready to call it quits, but he refuses to throw away the partnership they’ve built since they were children. Instead, he’ll remind her they were meant to be together, forever.

Can this marriage survive pride and grief to allow love to carry them home?
And now, here's the review from Cheryl Rae, a web developer and promotional item designer for authors. You can learn more about her and her work here
I started reading Alexa's books last year. I like that they are all set
in the UK - and yet they are contemporary. Which tends to be rare in
romance. This book was a short - sweet - happy ending type of book that
was just perfect to read before bedtime! The thing that I liked most

about the book was that the author did not make the characters daft to
other's feelings or situations. She threw them together and had them
work it out. I like smart books with smart characters that don't run
around 50 pages making stupid mistakes or being oblivious. These are
cool characters, in a cool setting and all I can say is - I could have
kept reading.....:)
Thanks SOOOOOO much, Cheryl! I appreciate you taking the time to read and review my next book!
