A Hole in One by Judy Penz Sheluk

A Hole in One by Judy Penz Sheluk

Fast Five with Judy Penz Sheluk

Hi, Judy! Thank you so much for stopping by Brooke Blogs today. I am thrilled to have you here today to answer some interview questions. Congratulations on your newest release, A Hole in One!

1) What does a typical day look like for you? Do you write every day?

It varies, but when I’m working on a book, I aim for a chapter a day, five days a week. But those can be any five days, not just Monday to Friday. If I can write seven days a week, I’ll do that, too.

Summary:

High school seniors Cady LaBrie and Cooper Murphy have yet to set one toe out of line—they’ve never stayed out all night or snuck into a movie, never gotten drunk or gone skinny-dipping. But they have each other, forty-eight hours before graduation, and a Weekend Bucket List.

There’s a lot riding on this one weekend, especially since Cady and Cooper have yet to admit, much less resolve, their confounding feelings for one another—feelings that prove even more difficult to discern when genial high school dropout Eli Stanley joins their epic adventure. But as the trio ticks through their …

A Kelly Jackson Mystery #4
Lyrical Underground • April 17, 2018

There’s a corpse among the chanterelles!

Redwood Cove Bed and Breakfast manager Kelly Jackson is hosting a cooking class during the Week of the Mushroom festival to attract guests, not drama. But soon after she finishes foraging for an edible mushroom species on sacred Native American land, a local newspaper reporter gets shot dead at the same site.

Love At Last by Claudia Connor – Release Day Review + Blitz

Love At Last by Claudia Connor – Release Day Review + Blitz

My Thoughts

Love At Last by Claudia Connor is a fun, sexy story of love discovered, lost, and discovered again. If you’re looking for a sweet romance with big family dynamics to lose yourself in, you can’t go wrong with a Claudia Connor book. This one is no exception.

There were a couple of issues I felt with the timeline of the story – it felt like we jumped ahead and characters made some strange choices at some parts – but overall this is a wonderful story that I found myself really enjoying. I thought there would be more detail to some parts of the story. And, in today’s world, I didn’t think the characters needed to be lost to …

“Fans of A Wrinkle in Time can’t miss Dimension Drift!” – Christina Trevaskis, The Book Matchmaker

Truth time. I go to a Learning Squirrel High School. Don’t judge.

On second thought, judge away. Learning Squirrel is one step above attending class in a junkyard. But what do you expect? Everything’s made out of garbage these days. At least, I have my freelance work to keep Mom and me housed, clothed, and fed. How? I’m your regular high school science geek for hire, except my work manipulates space-time. The good news is that these gigs pay really well; the bad news is that …
