they must discover the truth - before someone dies Magic Moment by Angela Adams

"I really enjoyed it right from the beginning. Magic Moment was an entertaining read with a good story and characters. " - Goodreads, Mariann


Published: August 5th, 2015

When the FBI brings Laura Roberts - a quiet, reserved bookkeeper - in for questioning regarding activities at the warehouse where she works, an uneasy Laura resigns her job - only to be attacked by thugs.

Chase Donovan intends to spend a few peaceful days on his boat getting his head together - and finds a woman being assaulted by two men who say his father told them to do it.

Chase doesn't want to believe his father could hurt anyone. Laura doesn't understand why she's a target. Can they learn to work together to discover the truth - before someone dies?

Books…Stuff Animals…And Snow Globes… 

I get sentimentally attached to everything I'm given which results in being unable to part with anything. I still hold dear all mementos from my grandmother, especially those now-tattered Little Golden Books, and too-worn paperback copies of "Joy in The Morning" by Betty Smith, and "The Godfather," by Mario Puzo. I still have my very first ever reading book from first grade (I think I'll keep to myself how many years ago we're talking, but here's a hint -- back then, no one could have imagined "blogging"). 

I love figurines, so I've been the recipient, especially at Christmas, of porcelain trees, cute animals, cartoon characters, and decorated houses. 

I also love Holiday snow globes (I've had a few of them for 30 years+). And, I always get excited on the day after Thanksgiving when I take each one from its box and give it a good shake before displaying. My snow globes are one of the many "pleasures" I love about the Holiday season. 

Is there anything that you, dear readers, can't part with? 


Laura is having lunch at the local diner when two FBI agents approach her and insist she come down to headquarters and answer a few questions. A bewildered Laura finds Chase Donovan, her boss’s son, coming to her aid.

“Laura works for my father,” Chase said. “If I don’t see some identification, she’s not going anywhere with you.” To prove his point, his hand moved downward and his fingers wrapped gently around her forearm.

Chase also worked for his father, although what his role was within the business was generally debatable among the clientele. This was so embarrassing. In the three years Laura had worked as Dick Donovan’s bookkeeper, her conversations with his son had been work-related or cordial exchanges about the weather. If there was any chance of the floor opening up and swallowing her, she considered now the perfect time. 

She turned to Chase. “Thank you for your concern. I’ve seen their identification.” She didn’t mention the hasty badge flip. “They have me confused with someone else. I’ll take care of the error, and get back to the office as soon as I can.”

“Let me go with you.” Chase tossed the men a wary glance. He still held her arm. “You should have an attorney.” 

Laura winced, truly mortified. There was no need for an attorney or involving Chase Donovan in calling one. She had done nothing illegal. “I’m fine.”
