For my first blog back I decided to go easy on everyone (my kitchen) and ask a friend for a bit of help. She has a new book coming out soon. She is an amazing author, it's the one and only Author Diana Rose Duffy!
Diane Rose Duffy is a California native who has a passion for books, a whopping coffee addiction and a perpetual craving for chocolate. After recently retiring from a lengthy accounting career in Silicon Valley, Diane presently enjoys the peaceful serenity of daily life in the Sierra Nevada foothills of Northern California. Diane Rose Duffy has completed two humorous romance novels and a funny children's chapter book with the support of her husband whom she proclaims to be her 'happily ever after'
Her past Books are: Take a Piece of My Heart.
Kara begins her journey as a youthful innocent woman who marries the town bad boy against her parent’s wishes. A James Dean rebel clone…”THAT GUY”. You know the type because we have all had one of those in our past. Am I right? Though her bad choices bring her face-to-face with the dark side of human nature, Kara’s heartfelt desire to find a pure and everlasting love give her the courage to take chances.
This is the story of Kara and her quest to find her voice, freedom from her past and her own identity. She is a strong spirited female with a snarky attitude and an often-colorful viewpoint on life. Kara is no Barbie doll (either in build or temperament) and thus, her tale will relate to many female readers.
‘Take a Piece of My Heart’ is Kara’s journey of love, friendships, romance, lust and loss. She learns slowly that mistrust, love and hatred of some people may require a second chance.
This book will have you laughing out loud one moment and reaching for the tissue box soon after. It is an emotional read which will grab your heart from the first page and not release it until the final page.
NOTE: Some readers may hesitate to read this book because the synopsis indicates it is about spousal abuse so they assume the book is a depressing read. That is absolutely not the case with Take a Piece of My Heart. This book is focused more on the journey Kara takes after she walks away from her abusive relationship. She married at a young age so she has only been with one man and is naive to the dating scene. The book is actually quite humorous for the most part but does have some moments when tissues will be required.
Gracie Watson is a sassy, saucy first-grade school teacher with a wicked sense of humor. She enjoys her job helping to shape young, impressionable minds - truly, she does - but she's tired of teaching everyone else's kids while yearning for her own. She's searching for Mr. Right. You know, a soulmate to fill her heart with the love and passion she craves. Little does she know that an ill-fated camping trip with her adventure guide best friend could possibly be the beginning of a dangerous journey to a once in a lifetime love.
Detective Dylan Sanders is career driven and focused on the path before him, leaving his tragic, painful past in a cloud of dust behind him. When spunky Gracie Watson, quite literally, streaks into his life, his future may forever be altered. However, the question is – can Gracie help Dylan forget the heart-wrenching tragedy from his past, enabling him to finally heal and discover love?
Fate has dealt both Gracie and Dylan a losing hand at any chance for love, offering them each difficult challenges to overcome. Love and trust are tested. Loyalties are questioned. A battle for ever-lasting love will be fought as hearts seek healing in the last place they each expect…one another.
Now, they both may have a chance at happiness – together – but only if they can stay alive..................
Are you searching for a contemporary romance novel packed with humor and entertainment? How about a women's fiction novel with action-packed crime, mystery and suspense in a small town setting surrounded by quirky friends and family? Look no further, this romantic comedy is the book for you!
I envy Diana Rose Duffy because she has done something I wish I had the gut's to do. That's write a childern's book.
Imagine being a dog and living in a family with a mom, dad, three little girls, a grandpa, a bird, and a cat. That's my life! My name is Bogart and this is my story. You’ll get to meet my awesome family and see what it’s like to live in the Clark household.
At first it was just my immediate family and me, but slowly we began to expand into the large family we are today. We didn’t always get along, but as we've grown, we’ve learned a valuable lesson. Treat others the way you want to be treated. If we'd never learned that, our lives would have turned out quite sad!
I hope you enjoy reading about my amazing family and all the humorous ups and downs we’ve encountered together on our journey towards learning to respect one another.
Now that I have introduced you to her work. I was thinking maybe you would like to see the cover of her new book?
I'll warn you it's sexy!!
Our Wavering Hearts:
I for one can't wait for it to come out!
