I rec’d and ARC from the author in exchange for an honest opinion of her book. This is Miss Mousey’s very honest opinion of “BETWEEN THE SHEETS”.

Upon opening an start reading this very tantalizing  story from Ms Rancourt. You find yourself pulled into the world of a school teacher who basically has no life other than her teaching. She was to have gotten married but the man she was to have married left her at the alter. Bad bad move on his part. Now all she does – pour herself into her work-no social life.

The way in which she brings pen to paper with her creativity is truly remarkable. Her characters are so real life an believable. They live out actual scenes in everyday life. The storyline is a remarkable one and a believable one at that.

Could you imagine your self at a convention with a group of your peers and the only way to stay out of the hunt is to take yourself off limits.Thats exactly what this one hot teacher has done. He made a bargain with Maggie that as long as they were at the conference they were a couple. Maggie agreed to it.

Thats what this story is about- what happens between the sheets/ What actually happens between Randy and Maggie during that weekend at the conference. Makes you wonder or does it??

This is a beautiful and romantic love story that was written beautifully. You can see these two people slowly finding there way too each other. The cover of this amazing book is fits it Perfectly an is totally awesome!! Between the Sheets is written for adults or for those over 18 and love a good romance. Mis Mousey gives it a 45 out of 5 stars.




I rec’d an ARC of this amazing mystery from the author Jill Meengs in exchange for an honest opinion. This is Miss Mousey’s very honest opinion of her book “TRIGGER”. When opening the book and start reading it Ms Meengs has you on your toes from the very beginning. In the center of a mystery. Why are they after 2 young women?? Every where they go they are being followed both bad guy and cops. Ms Meengs writing style is very creative as she is able to bring the reader not only into different cities over seas. But also make you live the scenes as characters do and see them as they see them. This is the first book that I have read of this author. I look forward to reading more of her works. I love a good mystery and she has written a excellent one with this book. Jordan know that the only way to stay safe is she has to trust Chase but she knows nothing about him. The only thing she knows for certain is that her gut says to trust. She runs with him and she takes her bff with her as she is endanger too. Chase meets up with partner Max the only he really trust – they decide to only sage way to arrive at their destination is to spit up. Chase and Jordan go one way and then Max and Anna. Will they ever find out who is trying to get Jordan?? This book is written for everyone especially for those that love mystery. Miss Mousey gives it a 45 out of 5 stars- the writing, cover design , story line, believability of the story. NOW WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR ??? HOP THE TRAIN AND GET YOURS TODAY!!! Looking forward to More of of Chase of and Jordan.. Sure hope their is another book in the works!! (l

                                                                  Padme’s Library Interview Questions:

1What is the biggest influence/interest that brought you to this genre?

I like action and sexy heroes. Throw in a teaspoon of quirkiness and humor, and I’m one happy camper. I also like to watch detective movies and TV shows.  Some of my favorites are Castle, Remington Steele, Magnum PI, and Simon and Simon.

  1. When writing a book, what is your favorite part of the creative process(outline, plot, character names, editing, etc)?

I love picking character names.  I have a thing for Italian names for men and Irish names for women; however, you will see me throw in a Belgian or Bohemian name here or there out of respect for my heritageJ

  1. When reading a book, what genre do you find most interesting/intriguing?

My favorite is romantic suspense but I’ve started to venture into other genres.

  1. If you could co-author with any author, past or present, who would you choose?

If I could co-author with anyone I would choose Janet Evanovich.  I absolutely love her Stephanie Plum series, and I truly enjoy her quirky sense of humor.

  1. Have you always wanted to write or did it come to you “later in life”?

It came much later in life.  The ‘want’ to write came to me about seven years ago.  I had just finished the course work for my Master of Business Administration degree and found I had a boatload of time on my hands.  I always held a full-time and part-time job while attending college at night, and suddenly I found I had nothing to do at night.  I was bored.

An avid reading friend of mine handed me an Evanovich book and I promptly said, “No
