Welcome to Books, Booze and Beyond. Thanks so much for stopping by.

So what can you expect from this page? Well… We’re not really sure what all will end up on here. But we can guarantee that it will probably end up being a really random mix of things. There will obviously be a lot of books, probably from various genres depending on our moods. There will be some booze, either recipes for drinks we like or what type of drink is needed when reading a certain book. But there will also be other things that interest us.

Before we get into details, we guess we should introduce ourselves. We are Elizabeth and Jennifer *waves*, two sisters who love to read (and drink). We read some of the same books (Toni Aleo’s Assassin Series and almost all books by Nora Roberts) and a whole lot of different books depending on our mood and our interests at the time. We didn’t get along real well growing up, but now that we are adults (and don’t live near each other) we get along great and enjoy chatting about books and other random things together.

I’m Elizabeth, the older sister and the princess of the family (ask anyone in my family). When I’m not working you can usually find me either reading or napping. I am a huge NASCAR fan (Go #5!) and try to get to as many races as possible every season. I currently live in my home town, but am considering a move to Charlotte (I would just have to find a job and a place to live first).  

I’m Jennifer. I am an avid reader who also loves to do crafty type things and watch sports (especially baseball). I work full time as well as I am a mommy to 3 beautiful children. When not reading or crafting or playing with the kids, I like to go on dates with my hubby, which obviously doesn’t happen all that often with 3 busy kids.

 So back to what you can expect to see on this page, there will probably end up being some posts about craft projects that Jennifer has completed. There will be posts about the oils Elizabeth likes to use for various things. We might throw in a post or two about fashion trends that we love or even hate (just because things are trendy, doesn’t mean they are cute). Both of us are trying to lose weight all the time so there maybe posts about recipes we like or things that we have found to help with weight loss. All we know is we plan to have fun with this. Please let us know if there is anything you would like to see on here, if it interests us too, we will definitely post something about it. So again welcome to Books, Booze and Beyond and we look forward to chatting with you in the future.

    Book blurb:
    Laura Bellamy is a rising star at her San Francisco company. She is smart, beautiful, professional, respected, and driven to succeed. Unfortunately, the greater her success grows, the more her husband’s insecurities are revealed. The couple has been married only three years since busy Laura took a chance on finding love on an internet dating website.

    But once the honeymoon ended, the more she tried to make their marriage succeed, the more Greg’s true colors stained their crumbling relationship. He is jealous, paranoid, and cruel. Adding to their pressure-cooker marriage, he focuses his insecurities into pressuring his wife to start a family and give up the career that makes her happy.

    Laura has worked with the same company for longer than she’s known her husband. In that time, not only has she loved her career, she’s also enjoyed her friendship with Mason Paladino: a fellow executive who is witty, sophisticated, and a bit of a goofball who sports a gorgeous swimmer’s body. For too long, the friends have suspected they share romantic chemistry, but neither will break their vows. If the right conditions present themselves, will they act on their simmering desires? Would it be wrong to deny their love? Can Laura trust her heart to show her the right path after failing miserably with her husband?

    When Greg’s insecurities push him over the edge from cruel to criminal, will Laura stay, or end the toxic relationship? And if he catches her with a new man, how far will his anger drive his actions to tear them apart?

    Find out what happens to Laura and Mason in Hard as Mason, book one of the Sultry Tides series by Cindy B. Wells.

    Thanks for your help!

    Warm regards,
