Patty

Hi all! I am Patty. I am married to my amazing husband James. Or family is made up of our son, step daughter and our three dogs. I love my family. I am a multi-talented individual with lots of hobbies. I like to craft, bake, sew, read and dabble in photography. I love the beach, traveling (not that I go to many places), movies and music. But the most important thing about me is I love to read!
By definition I am a book nerd! My passion is to get lost in a story as if I were watching a movie. I love interacting with authors and am a member of a few street teams. (The Grimlets, Team Camilla, etc.) I post reviews of books on several sites such as Amazon, GORead, Goodreads, Nook and IBooks. I post on Twitter and Facebook. But the most important thing is I just enjoy reading and love sharing my enjoyment with others.
How this Blog came to be: One day while out doing my 4 mile, walk my friend Pauline says "Hey why don't you start blogging about the books you read". I thought about it and wondered hmmmm "Maybe I should." So I started this blog and named it Moohnshine’s Corner Yes I spelled it wrong, on purpose. Long standing joke! LOL!
Hope you like it. Thanks. #HappyReading

UNTAMABLE by Jamie Schlosser
Romantic Comedy
A Standalone Novel
Emery Matheson knows p*ssies. Cats, that is. As the star of a reality show called The P*ssy Tamer, it’s his job to fix extreme feline behavioral issues.
When he hears about his next project—a lonely cat hoarder named Estelle—he expects a little old widow, not the blond bombshell who opens the door.
With a 100 percent success rate, Emery has never had trouble finishing a job. But just a few hours into the first day of filming and one thing is clear—Estelle and her band of misfit p*ssies will give him a run for his money… and his heart.

EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT:
Red spots began soaking through Emery’s gray T-shirt.

“Oh my God. You’re bleeding.” I pointed at his chest. “I’m so sorry.”

He just laughed. “Occupational hazard. We have a medic on hand for that very reason. Besides, it’s not like you didn’t warn me.”

His words summoned a brunette carrying a first aid kit.

“You know the drill,” she said, grinning at him while she opened the case and started lining up her supplies on the kitchen table.

Emery grabbed the back of his T-shirt and pulled it over his head, being careful not to disrupt the wires from his mic.

Suddenly, it felt like all the air had been sucked out of the room. The thin material had done little to hide the muscle definition underneath, but at least then I couldn’t see his smooth skin.

His nipples.

The ridges of his abs and that highly coveted V by his hips.

A thin smattering of hair covered his chest, traveling down the center of his abs and below his belly button. The light brown trail disappeared into the waist of his jeans.

I wanted to run my fingers over it. All of it. Even the parts I couldn’t see.

I was looking at the most magnificent torso ever—not just in real life—in the entire damn universe. He had movie stars and models beat. I remembered watching a video of Charlie Hunnam training for an upcoming role, and I’d been in awe of the amount of work it took to look that good.

Regular people didn’t just go walking around in that kind of shape. Apparently, Emery didn’t fall into the category of ‘regular people.’

And God bless him for it.

Feeling weak in the knees, I leaned my hip against the counter and wondered if I was the only one affected. Everyone else went about their tasks as usual. Well, everyone except for the medic.

After taking a seat, Emery said something to her about not using bandages this time, and her response was a nervous giggle. She quickly cleaned the area with disinfectant, then put cream over the scratches.

Red-faced, she slowly backed away as Emery slipped a new shirt on.

A different kind of heat flared through me, but this one was familiar and much more unpleasant than the virus I was fighting off.

Jealousy.

I was jealous that she got to touch him.

I made a face, because that was ridiculous. Emery was here to work, not get eye-fucked by the crazy cat lady.

The hot-and-bothered medic taped a sign to the wall by the door. In big letters, it said, ‘Do not leave door open. Mike will run.’ It made my sudden desire to claw her eyes out diminish.

She was just doing her job.

Psycho much, Estelle?

Opening my cabinet, I grabbed the bottle of Tylenol and choked down a couple pills along with my sweet tea.

I extended the medicine toward Emery. “Want some?”

“Nah,” he replied. “It doesn’t hurt that bad.”

“That happens a lot, doesn’t it?” I lightly accused.

“Getting mauled by cats?” He laughed. “More times than I can count.”

“No.” I tipped my head toward the flushed woman retreating from my apartment. “People losing their shit every time you take your shirt off.”

Pre-Order Reveal| Murder Feels Awful

Murder Feels Awful
Bill Alive
(Empath Detective, #1)
Publication date: October 10th 2017
Genres: Mystery, New Adult

He can feel people’s emotions. And murderers feel awful.

Mark Falcon can “vibe” other people’s emotions … and they’re usually super painful. So he hides out in rural Virginia, making websites for clients he never has to meet. It’s a not-terrible life, sort of … until he vibes the final panic of a woman’s murder.

The last thing hermit Mark wants to do is go out and investigate, vibing which suspect is seething with secret hate. Even with me along, his trusty new sidekick/housemate. (I’m so cheerful that I double as an emotional air freshener.)

But Mark has no choice. He has to act, because our local cop detective is convinced that there’s no killer and the woman killed herself. Unfortunately, our cop’s also got the overall presence of a Viking goddess, and the last thing she wants is some delusional “psychic” website guy playing amateur sleuth. (Not to mention hitting on her.)

With the cops threatening jail, small-town secrets threatening Mark’s sanity, and a crazy-gorgeous doctor suspect threatening my heart, time’s running out for Mark and I to catch the killer…

Before the killer catches us.

Murder Feels Awful is the very first Empath Detective novel, a new cozy mystery series that totally really happened, but is officially fiction. If you like Janet Evanovich, M. C. Beaton, Deb Baker, and long lists of famous author names, you’ll love this new series that has it all — amateur detectives you’ll love, zany small-town characters, sparkling wit, and a cold-blooded killer you’ll never even suspect.

I have ……days to find a wife.

Claiming any woman is not a problem if you have deep pockets
My parents want me to be married,
And this time it’s an ultimatum.
With both the royal line and my freedom at stake,
I don’t have a choice but to find the ‘right kinda girl.’
Someone who is okay to put up this pretence.
Someone who doesn’t object to my playboy lifestyle.

And then I meet Adrianna
A sassy as hell free-spirited stripper.
One casual hit leads to
An indecent proposal for a fake marriage turning my world upside down
And I plant my seed inside her.

Alright, it was an accident, but what now!
My dilemma: Is she really the ‘right kinda girl.’ The kind I want to spend the rest of my life with.

With love, betrayal, sex, and power, this book will take you for a ride through a modern-day adult fairy tale.

MY REVIEW

Another great read by Mia Ford.  I am becoming a huge fan of hers.  Every book 📚 I read of hers draws me in.  She has a wonderful way of writing.  This book was an amazing adventure.  This was a true romance.  A tale of selfishness, greed, sacrifice, forgiveness and love. ❤️💕  A fairytale of sorts, where happy endings have to be earned not handed to you on a silver platter.  The authors took the time to develop the characters and create a world that draws you in and captivates you.  You have no choice but to keep turning those pages.  I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good Cinderella story.  Poor girl meets her Prince Charming 🤴🏻.  Oh and let’s not forget the hot sexual chemistry between Prince Milos and his Adriana.  That Prince is one hot man!

5-Star-Rating

COVER REVEAL| A Shine That Defies The Dark

A Shine That Defies The Dark
Jodi Gallegos
Published by: Changing Tides Publishing
Publication date: December 5th 2017
Genres: Adult, Romance

Gripping, romantic, and evocative of its time— A Shine that Defies the Dark is a spellbinding story of one woman who will stop at nothing to survive during a tumultuous time in American history.

After a six-year exile, Ophelia Breaux and her mother are overjoyed to return to the Louisiana bayou. But it seems the ghosts of the epic feud that drove them away still haunt Plaquemines Parish, and with the Great Depression sweeping the nation, the two soon find they can’t make ends meet.

Seeing no other option, Ophelia’s mother takes the drastic step of sharing her bed with the town judge in exchange for a reduced rent. The judge has had a life-long obsession with Momma, and Ophelia is desperate to end this arrangement and get her away from him.

When Remy Granger shows up, Ophelia knows it could mean more trouble—and that’s the last thing they need. Handsome and dangerous, he’s the first boy she ever kissed, and a member of the most notorious family in southern Louisiana—but he’s also got an opportunity for fast money in rumrunning. Ophelia goes all in, and it turns out she may have a knack for the business. But she’s going to have to run even faster if she wants to save Momma… dodging the cops, rival gangs, and her traitorous heart at every turn.
