Top Ten Tuesday . . . Parrots, Lions, Dogs, Goats, and a Duck???

Tuesday, July 25, 2017





I love animals, and when they poke their head into a novel I am already enjoying it makes the book love stronger.


Here are just a few animals and the books they are from.


In book one of Julie Lessman's Love at any Cost, from her Heart of San Francisco series, she has this great parrot called Miss Behave. Isn't that the greatest name? I loved this parrot and this picture of a parrot playing with the keys reminds me of her.



 In Brandilyn Collins' book Pitchin' a Fit she has a cute little Yorkie called Lady Penelope, and she is quite a little trouble maker and very cute.

















Tippy, the over-weight, geriatric dog, which I pictured as a basset hound, takes you on quite a ride in this novel.





Charlie and his amazing lions. Charlie is one of my favorite hero's, but I love his lions.


















This is one of my favorite books of Mr. Walsh's. Finley is a rescued dog, he ends up rescuing a vet with PTSD, and the girl who trains him.




Sweetness gives her book loving heroine a run for the money the first chance she gets.
















Gabby the duck. Really that's all that needs to be said. Jen Turano creates a duck that is the most fun duck I've ever met.
















The one thing you can count on with a Jen Turano novel is quirky characters, and if she adds an animal they will be quirky and fun just like the human ones. Ever since I read Charlotte's Web in first grade I've loved pigs. Of course it didn't help that my mother's best friend's husband raised them when I was little. Piper the pig is as fun loving as Wilbur.















A guard goat? Yes, a guard goat, his name is Geoffrey, and created in true Jen Turano style.

















Do you have any favorite animals in books??? Let me know!!!


Coffee, the World, and Jesus . . . Book Spotlight







                                                      About the book:

Life lessons and almost irreverent musings from twenty-five years in the global coffee industry.

Coffee, the World, and Jesus is a collection of mildly contrarian musings from this international coffee businessman who happens to love Jesus. In these humorous vignettes about the relational, flawed, unwavering faith Ron clings to, readers will find glimmers of their own daily struggles to reflect Christ in a fallen world. For the religiously cautious, the disillusioned, and jaded followers of Christianity, this is a refreshing look at how God reveals Himself to be so much bigger than politics, dogmas, or western influences.
Ron's sidesplitting series of stories about how he found his spiritual groove smack-dab in the middle of his God-breathed, coffee-scented uniqueness will appeal to readers looking for a quick bite of spiritual growth with their next latte.
When many Christians take a long, hard look at the lives of the spiritual elite in America, they want to shout, "I don't want to be like that!" Ron DeMiglio knows how they feel and he's not afraid to do the shouting—even when those shouts are sometimes directed at himself.





I met Ron DeMiglio through Jim Rubart, he sent me a copy of his book Coffee, the World and Jesus. I have started it, but not finished it. Although what I have read so far is quirky, thought provoking, and entertaining.
This week his debut, Coffee, the World, and Jesus is $1.99 this week on all platforms.






Meet Ron . . .




Ron DeMiglio is the former president and owner of Eko Brands, LLC. The past twenty-five years of his life have centered around coffee as he traveled around the world. Ron lives in Snohomish, Washington.
