Saturday - More blurbs of books by Janet Lane Walters

I believe I now have covered all my publishers with a blurb,

Moon Pool Janet Lane Walters and Jane Toombs - In the center of the maze at an Adirondack resort lies a spring-fed pool. Legend says that if you look into the serene depths under a full moon, you’ll see the face of your true love. In this collection of four novellas, the magic of the Moon Pool touches the lives of eight people for whom love seems to be a dream that can never be reality:

Thea — who lost her one true love because she couldn’t bear the scorn of others.

Faith — who has given up on love in the face of responsibility.

Lynn— who settled for practicality when she yearned for poetry.


Cynthia — whose reputation for selfishness was no match for love.

Shortcut To Love - Zelda has loved Michael for most of her life, but he seems to be working through the alphabet in his search for a wife. She's a Z and it will be years before he reaches her. Besides, when they're together, strange things happen, usually to him. How can this nurse show the doctor, she's what he ordered to make him complete? The author calls this a "doctor nurse spoof" and we think you'll really enjoy it!

Affinities - Escape - In Affinities, Escape, a Books We Love Young Adult Fantasy, two sets of halfling twins, Ashlea, Brandien, Jaydren and Kylandra sent away from their home by their parents to protect them from trouble, search for mentors to teach them how to use their affinities.

He wishes to corrupt the teen and use him to gain control of the four princedoms of the land and of the highlands. The evil dom has all four affinities. The four must reach a secret place and find teachers before the evil man discovers them
