Our friend Carol Kilgore, who blogs at Under The Tiki Hut, has written a new book called Secrets of Honor.
all Kat Marengo wants is to kick off her shoes and stash two not-really-stolen rings in a secure
spot. Plus, maybe sleep with Dave Krizak. No, make that definitely sleep with Dave Krizak. The
next morning, she wishes her new top priorities were so simple.
As an operative for a covert agency buried in the depths of the Department of Homeland
Security, Kat is asked to participate in a matter of life or death—locate a kidnapped girl
believed to be held in Corpus Christi, Texas. Since the person doing the asking is the wife of the
president and the girl is the daughter of the first lady’s dearest friend, it’s hard to say no.
Kat and Dave quickly learn the real stakes are higher than they or the first lady believed and will
require more than any of them bargained for.
The kicker? They have twenty-four hours to find the girl—or the matter of life or death will
become more than a possibility.
The only problem I see with the book is that the real Carol Kilore is prettier than the woman on the cover of the book. Here's Carol Kilgore, who is always super-duper nice to me.
Carol writes grocery lists, texts to her family, new lyrics to old songs for her dogs, love notes to
her husband, and novels for herself. And for you. In between, she blogs weekly at Under the
Tiki Hut and is active on Facebook and Twitter.
She sees mystery and subterfuge everywhere. And she’s a sucker for a good love story—
especially ones with humor and mystery. Crime Fiction with a Kiss gives her the latitude to mix
and match throughout the broad mystery and romance genres. Having flexibility makes her

Best wishes to you, Carol. Franklin says, Carol Kilgore rocks.
I feel a bit better. I'm especially glad because I'm scheduled for blood work today as part of my physical that I get with my new health insurance. I don't want to miss out on blood work. I hope nothing is wrong with me, but I hope something is wrong with me so maybe I can be repaired. I am strangely exhausted and I experience heat waves (not mere hot flashes) that make me feel feverish.
Sorry I didn't provide you with a MOVIE WEEKEND yesterday. I realize you have no idea what to watch. MOVIE WEEKEND should return next week, but, yes, I admit that being as important as I am can be quite a burden.
BULLY FOR YOU will be here on Monday, thanks to the Mama, Sherry Ellis.
Infinities of love,
Movies may be entertaining but books stay with people longer, I think.ReplyDelete
I understand what you mean. I need a doctor appointment also and I want to hear "yes, we have located the problem and can fix you" so that the problem will go away. It's just having a problem at all is not a fun time. I hope you feel better and get better and can be fixed up soon!
Thank you. Me, too.Delete
Carol is a lovely lady and her new book Secrets of Honor seems like a suspenseful page turner. Thanks for the mini review, Janie. I'm glad you're feeling a little better and also relieved to know that your "boys" are AOK. Good luck with your blood test today. I hope you didn't stay up all night cramming. :) You are important, Janie, our very own Moviefone, and now I am left not knowing what to watch this weekend. Guess I'll rerun that episode in which Dowager Violet Crawley gets the sweats. I'll see you over on my blog this Sunday, dear friend!ReplyDelete
I feel much better, but I was up all night. I think I had slept so much that I just didn't need anymore rest. Your Downton Abbey reference made me laugh. You can never go wrong with Downton.Delete
I like that kind of book. I can't remember when I last read that kind of book. I had my blood draw yesterday and am wondering what it reveals. I attempted to watch The Wolf of Wall Street, and gave up. Too long. Liked Leo and Jonah though.ReplyDelete
I was going to review Wolf this week. I hope to get to it next week. Leo is very good. It is a long movie, but it held my attention. My blood draw went well. No problem finding a vein, which is unusual for me. I hope it's a sign of good things to come.Delete
I hope you feel better, Janie... Take care.ReplyDelete
Sending you a cyber hug. I hope it helps!
Thank you for the hug. It's exactly what I needed!Delete
If there's something wrong with you, I hope it's an easy fix. Franklin needs you, and I would miss you.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing in my cover reveal and for your super-nice comments!
It's my pleasure to participate, Miss Carol. I wish you loads of sales. The truth is that I need Franklin more than he needs me. He is such a popular dog. Everyone who comes to the house falls in love with him.Delete
Oh, I so hope you are feeling better soon and that they will find out what is causing your troubles! Carol is a terrific writer and I look forward to reading her book. And just to let you know I will be closing my blog for a bit, but will be checking in on my favorite blogs, of which yours is one of my tops, periodically. Feel better, my friend!ReplyDelete
Shelly, I love your blog. I will miss you, chica. I hope you return to writing very soon, and thank you for promising to visit me.Delete
Isn't Carol's new cover GORGEOUS? (I'm a slacker... not gonna feature it until next Friday.)ReplyDelete
Sorry to hear you haven't been feeling up to snuff. Get well, soon, okay? Here's to a super duper weekend.
It's a very nice cover, but I still think Carol should be on the cover because she looks so sweet.Delete
So glad you're feeling better. I hope the results come back great and you continue to improve!ReplyDelete
I have to improve. I don't have any choice. The dogs depend on me.Delete
Glad you're feeling better. I had to get additional blood work after my usual blood work for my physical because two things were out of whack, just slightly though. And they were weird things to be out of whack. I did the additional blood work on Wednesday. Hoping to hear from my doc on Monday. Like you, I'd sort of like to hear that there's something that can be "fixed" so I'm made to feel better, not so lethargic. Hope all turns out well for you. Thanks for the book review, it sounds like a good story!ReplyDelete
I probably have weird things out of whack. I am a weird thing.Delete
I need to do a better job of scheduling time for reading. I'm ashamed to mention the last book I read.ReplyDelete
Why? Was it 50 Shades of Grey?Delete
LMAO!! 50 Shade was the worst book I ever read. I'm the only one I know who hated it. Always love to hear about new authors to read.Delete
I hope they figure out what's ailing you!
It's a great feeling when people are super-duper nice to you. So, how does it feel?ReplyDelete
Hope you feel much better and the tests went well. Always love a nice book. Will keep this in mind.ReplyDelete
Hope you are much better by now and all the blood results are good. Sorry you have been feeling so poorly, my friend. Glad that Franklin is taking good care of you, though. ;)ReplyDelete
Usually the movie doesn't measure up and isn't as good as the book, that doesn't mean I don't like the movie but it is not as good as the book if you read a book than see the movie you will know what I mean, hell even if you read the book then see the movie you will know what I mean but if you read the book first you are more likely to be disappointed by the movie as so much gets left out of the movieReplyDelete
