Doesn’t it sound exciting, being an Advanced Reader? Until a few month ago I had no idea what that meant. Advanced Readers are people who get a FREE copy of a soon to be released novel and once they’ve read it, they give a review/feedback to the author.

So here I am looking for about ten people who would like to be part of my Advanced Reader group. If that is an interesting proposition for you,

A Review by B.Puls

I do not usually read love stories, not even fiction- really. I read nonfiction writing related to my academic work. I started reading this little romance book by accident, really. And I didn’t want to stop. I was “hooked” into the plot.

There was a tension and a nice level of excitement in the plot that even though of course I knew they will get married eventually I needed to read the journey to it. I liked the attractive, intelligent and human characters of the story. I liked the interesting bridging between New Zealand and Italy and recognising some places that I know from my own experiences. I could agree with some very sensitive comparisons between the countries. And, most of all, I just felt that I was in Tuscany. I felt its warmth, its beauty, its foods, and smells. I was right there, almost part of the plot. These people could have been my friends, and I would not mind at all to be invited to stay with them in their mansion and be part of their lives. : )

I highly recommend this lovely light book that combines a great crime story with romance writing and with a good travel story. Great little mini holiday from my dense factual readings… : )

Recipes for Pampering Yourself Back to Health

In many ways, life has never been easier for us, yet people struggle terribly with stress-related health issues. Stress is considered the #1 health hazard of our time. It impairs people’s relationships, self-confidence, jobs, physical, and mental health. The question asked most often is “how can I stop this?”. The answer to this very simple, yet challenging question can now be found in the book written by Dr. Gudrun Frerichs Delicious Mind, Body, and Soul: Recipes for Pampering Yourself Back to health.



This is NOT a self-help book. You won’t find 5,7, or 11 steps to follow that will bring you miraculously loving relationships, self-confidence, or happiness. There are no “Steps” that bring lasting relief from stress, distress, and emotional turmoil.

It’s a holistic guide offering inspirations for 10 days of yummy, healthy home-spa-retreat indulgence on a budget. Each day we follow a person and learn how he or she resolves a particular emotional problem such as stress, depression, or low self-confidence for example. We also look at a range of activities for self-care and physical wellness. The recipe section introduces healthy smoothies with many health benefits to kick-start your way back into health. Indeed, a holistic and nutritious ‘meal’ that feeds mind, body, and soul!

Expect common sense and wisdom based on the premises that we all create our own, personal reality through the 3 Principles of Mind, Thought, and Consciousness, simple concepts people can easily apply in their lives. The book answers how to use these principles given to each and every one of us and experience more joy, peace of mind, love, and happiness.
