Hi, Patti and Chriss -- Thanks for stopping by. I'm so sorry I missed you last night! I have this terrible habit of getting up super early, like before dawn, which means I'm usually asleep on the couch by 9!

Excerpt from Adrienne's Ghost.
........
The journal on top of the pile began to tremble, then buck. Fascinated, Rachael trained her eyes on the book, and as its movements became more frenzied, her heart raced to match its pace. Within a few seconds, the book had somehow shimmied itself forward so it teetered on the edge of the pile, like it needed no more than a tiny nudge to take the plunge.

Debating if she was supposed to provide that nudge, Rachael reached forward, and in that instant a shadowy image materialized inches away from the tips of her fingers. She jolted and snatched her arm back as the shadow transformed into a shape. It was a hand, only a hand, like someone was reaching through a split in some cosmic curtain that separated two dimensions. A shriek whipped up Rachael's throat, and she slapped both hands to her mouth to stuff it back down. Scrambling backward, she found herself pressed against the couch, ready to run, when the ghostly fingers prodded the diary.

Another excerpt from Love Turns the Tide:
wenty-six-year-old Cammie O'Shea's hand trembled as she took hold of the gold doorknob to Vic Deleona's real estate office in Destin, Florida. Opening it, she waited for what seemed like an eternity while a muscular man with broad shoulders stood at a file cabinet with his back to her. Finally, she gave the door a little push, so it banged, but not too loud. He jumped with a start, turned around, and glared at her with angry green eyes. Had hearing someone enter offended him? Surely not, he must have seen something in a file that upset him. "Hi, Miss uh…"
Before he finished speaking, the phone rang. He picked it up with his large hand, gripping the receiver tightly with long fingers with dark hairs on the knuckles. "What do you mean he can't come to do the inspection?" Wrinkles creased his brow as he slammed the receiver back into the black cradle on his mahogany desk. "We'll see about that," he mumbled to himself. Stuffing some papers in his briefcase, he picked it up and came around the desk like he'd been shot out of a cannon. Charging toward the door, he stopped just short of bumping into Cammie. "Miss uh…"
"O'Shea, Cammie O'Shea."
"I'm sorry. I have to deal with a situation." He said the word "situation" in a loud tone. "We'll have to re-schedule. See my secretary, Marge Galloway, for another appointment." He glanced at his Rolex. "She should be in by now," he said. Then he rushed past Cammie, the door slamming behind him.
Tears puddled in her eyes.

Heading off for a little bit. I think we're watching a movie. Green Hornet, or Lantern. Whatever. :-)

It was Green Lantern, and it was fun! Good vs. evil, a little romance. Nice family movie. :-) I haven't seen the 4th "Pirates" movie yet but it's on my list!

That's great fun. We watched Pirates of the Caribbean 4 last night.

Is everyone having leftovers for dinner? I'm contemplating making a new batch of stuffing for dinner tonight...or mac 'n cheese to go with the leftover turkey. :-)

Hi beejee, We're about turkied out too. A cheeseburger sounds good. I can't think of them without remembering the chili cheeseburgers my great uncle used to make for me. They were the best.

Here's an excerpt from Adrienne's Ghost where Rachael and Jack discover there's more drawing them together than the ghost!
____________
"Coffee?"

"Maybe. Later."

Even as she ran her gaze over every inch of his face, subconsciously looking for proof of his goodness, or maybe sanity, she inched forward. Bewildered, wondering what had driven her to break every intelligent woman's rule and allow herself to be swept along to a strange man's home in a tide of curious passion, she reached for him in the same moment he reached for her. Like they'd been trapped in the same inescapable flow of hormones, infected by the same undeniable yearnings.

When he pulled her close, molded her body to his so not a breath of air separated them, she pressed her nose into the crook of his neck, indulged in the scent of dryer sheets, sweat and man, and craved more.

An interesting excerpt.

Excerpt from a review from Miss Lynn's Books and More This was an excellent story with three main characters that grow on you right from the beginning, Cammie, Angie and Vic. The secondary characters are very much a part of this story line and they fit right in perfectly, including the ducks, which we cannot leave out. There is just enough suspense to the story to keep the reader turning the pages when someone has made it a point to vandalize Angie and Cammie's condo's. Can the police find the intruder before he strikes again and who seems to leave no clues. Just when the reader thinks they know who it is their mind changes just a little. Will this cause Cammie to stay in Destin or return home to family friends. What does her future hold.

When I started reading this newest book of Gail Pollotta's I didn't stop till I had it finished. I feel the bible verses were written into the story line very well reflecting on her thoughts about judging, faith and her prayers, without making the book preachy . The cover of the book is beautiful, simple but relates to the story, the characters are well defined and I feel like this book has a wide appeal, and can be accepted by many types of readers. It was interesting and a real pleasure to read.

The people around here are getting hungry. Me too, just reading about the pizza and bread. I'm going to have to go do something about that, but will check in later.

Gail, is Love Turns the Tide a contemporary novel? What genre would you call it? Women's fiction? The "rules" about the different genres sometimes aggravate me!

I wouldn't say that faith is a discussion point in Love Turns the Tide. It's the one thing Cammie has left to turn to. Because she turns to it, she is uplifted by it.
[ Posted: 8 years ago ]

  Gail Pallotta (author)
It's difficult to identify the generas, at least for me. In Love Turns the Tide, Cammie turns to her faith to help her when she feels so alone. Even though she feels estranged from God, she keeps praying and reading the Bible to find strength.

  Leah St. James (author)
To me, books that fall into the "inspirational" genre often have faith as a central discussion point. Is that accurate?

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. What did you do? I visited with my daughter, so that made it special. I also have a post on my blog about some things I'm thankful for. There are photos from Destin, Florida, where my book Love Turns the Tide is set. If you'd like to take a look it's http://www.gailpallotta.blogspot.com

Pizza and bread. Hmm, no Italian restaurants in your corner of Virginia. Yeah. It would be good if you found a Mom and Pop place. We had one near where I grew up, and you just couldn't beat it.

Oh my gosh...pizza and bread! We can't get decent pizza or bread here! And there are no good restaurants outside of the chains. It's really strange!

A friend moved to Virginia recently. She's not far from the Chesapeake Bay. It sure is pretty.
