Silver-White by Shawn Underhill

“The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep.”
~ Robert Frost

*Evie’s family has been holding out on her … Big time.
On an unexpected visit to her grandparents’ house in New Hampshire’s secluded North Woods, the sixteen-year-old literally runs into the truth of the long-hidden family secrets, and finds herself thrust without warning into the clandestine world of the Great North Pack—a wild and exhilarating world of rugged beauty, heart-pounding adventures, and long nights running under a sea of stars … but as she’s set to discover, a world also fraught with potential dangers lurking in the shadows.


Praise
 "Simply put, this book was amazing. I've read more fantasy novels than than I can count, but this one is certainly one of the best. The heroine isn't some wishy-washy pansy that screams at everything, and the focus of the story isn't on some unbelievably beautiful teenage girl who suddenly becomes the biggest, baddest member of her species falling in love with some big, bad, sexy member of her newfound species. It's about a girl becoming something she never knew existed, finding her place within the pack family she values more than ever before, and an age-old feud that threatens everything she loves." ~Morgan

Barbara's Gourmet Butter Cookies - Review

Delight the ones you love this Valentine's Day with a gift of beautifully hand-decorated gourmet butter cookies from Barbara's Cookie Pies. Hand-pressed and hand-made, these cookies are made from only the finest ingredients.
This bright blue tin arrived full of an assortment of butter cookies with frosting, sprinkles, sugars and fruit preserves. They were packaged carefully to ensure none were broken and even the tin is lined for extra cushioning. These gourmet cookies are perfect for gifts, parties, desserts, or any special occasion!
My family gathered around the kitchen table for a cookie tasting party. With so many delicious butter cookies to choose from, everyone ate their fill and then some. Each cookie is softly crisp, light, and absolutely scrumptious. My favorite was the double-stacked butter cookie with chocolate frosting in between the layers, then dipped in fudge and rainbow-colored sprinkles!
Visit www.barbarascookiepies.com to order Barbara's Gourmet Butter Cookies now for Valentine's Day! Be sure to follow Barbara's on Facebook and Twitter so you can be first to hear about new products and special promotions.

Sibu Seven Omega 7 Chocolates - Review

There are few more beautiful words than "Chocolate is good for you!" Sibu took it a step further and loaded up chocolate with 250 mg of organic sea buckthorn fruit oil. Wait! Okay, it sounds sort of strange and I bet you're wondering if you'll have to sacrifice taste for goodness. Sibu Seven Omega 7 Chocolates are a delectable, delicious, dreamy experience!
Each box contains both Orange Milk Chocolate and Peppermint Dark Chocolate truffle squares. Each one is individually wrapped to ensure perfect taste. Both flavors are absolutely incredible and everyone in my family loved them.
The benefits of sea buckthorn fruit oil include nutritional support for skin, hair and nails, plus early studies show it may help to lower LDL cholesterol and support gastro-intestinal and cardiovascular functions. This Valentine's Day you can give a delicious and healthy box of Sibu Seven Omega 7 Chocolates to someone you love! Visit sibubeauty.com for more information.

Best Places To Visit In The Spring

In many parts of the U.S., the spring season offers outdoor recreation at comfortable temperatures and a wide choice of activities. Skiing is still an option in several regions, and the warmer days make it more fun to hit the slopes. Hiking trails begin to open in the springtime with options for independent treks or with an experienced guide. The season offers some of the best vacation packages of the year with affordable rates for accommodations, lift tickets and guided tours.
Rocky Mountain Springtime Activities
Springtime in Colorado offers exciting possibilities for skiing at the higher elevations and a round of golf or a bike ride in the lower valleys. Affordable vacation packages feature two or three night accommodations, lift tickets and shuttle service to the slopes. Rates often drop during late March through April when the snow levels may subside, but the runs are still open and well groomed. Trips to Colorado offer a variety of resorts to visit and varied climates that are conducive to other sports such as rock climbing, mountain biking and wilderness exploration. Available deals include extra night stays for free, discounts on dining and bundled air fare and car rental packages.

Spring Skiing at Mammoth Mountain
The California ski resort at Mammoth Mountain features challenging downhill runs, cross-country trails and spectacular scenery. A warm spring day on the slopes brings out skiers in light gear, including bathing suits and tank tops. After a full day of skiing, visitors flock to the Village at Mammoth to socialize at a local tavern, listen to music and relax. Available vacation packages include a free extra night with a week-long stay, deals for multiple travelers and accommodations in ski-in/ski-out facilities.

Palm Springs for Golf, Tennis and Hiking
A trip to the California desert in spring, before the heat rises, offers the chance to enjoy golf, play tennis or take a hike in the local mountains. Area resorts typically offer package deals that may include reduced green fees at local golf courses, access to tennis clubs and discounts at local shops and restaurants. Out-of-state visitors will find combination fly and drive packages for airfare and rental cars.

Family Trips in the Mid-Atlantic States
Hiking, caving, zipline tours and cycling are some of the many adventures geared toward families during a spring break vacation in the Mid-Atlantic. A mild climate, abundant waterways and interesting nature centers provide an ideal setting to enjoy outdoor activities in the Virginias, Maryland and Pennsylvania. Travelers will find package deals that include a comfortable room at a full-service resort with swimming and spa privileges, breakfast and bicycle rentals.

The best vacation packages should reflect a family’s individual vacation objective. A comfortable hotel room or condo is a necessity, and some meals such as breakfast may be included in the deal. The location of the property and activity or recreation access, however, is a primary consideration. Upfront planning to research the best deals ensures an affordable and fun-filled vacation for everyone.

Walls Need Love - Review and Giveaway

Wouldn't you love to gaze out your window and see this every evening? Yeah, me too. In the meantime, I can dream about it as I rest my weary eyes on this beautiful Palm Trees wall decal from WallsNeedLove.com! I'm even thinking about putting a four pane window over it to make it look even more realistic.
This blank wall in my living room is the perfect spot for a beautiful sunset beach scene. I've got several other palm tree pictures in the room so it fits the decor theme. Best of all, I can see it to my right when I'm sitting at my desk working. It's great incentive to keep working towards a vacation.
My wall decal arrived from Walls Need Love wrapped in plastic and placed in a mailing tube to ensure it would arrive protected. It was the easiest thing I have ever hung on a wall. I simply peeled it off the backing and stuck it on the wall.
I even managed to get it straight the first time. I've been watching the edges and corners for a few days to see if any would peel up or off, but it has stayed right where I put it. I saved the backing so that when we move, I can peel it off without damaging the decal or the wall and hang it in my next house. WallsNeedLove.com has tons of great wall decals, wall quotes, wallpaper and prints. Check out their website and then enter below to win a $50 Gift Code to their online store!

Sweet Andy's Cookies - Review and Giveaway

Nothing cures the winter blues like a big, delicious cookie! A box of Sweet Andy's Cookies arrived at my doorstep and I almost hugged the delivery guy. I opened the box to six bags of huge cookies in six amazing flavors.
Fresh, soft, chewy, crispy, and scrumptious, Sweet Andy's Cookies are known as the "Thank You" Cookie because they were originally made as a thank you gift for their friends. Actually I need to be thanking them because their cookies are great! I received Mint Chocolate Chip, Chocolate, Oatmeal Raisin, Sugar Cookie, Chocolate Chip, and Triple Chip.
Sweet Andy's Cookies are baked fresh, then shipped out to the lucky recipient. They can be frozen if you won't be eating them all right away (good luck with that) and they are heavenly when warmed for a few seconds in the microwave.
My husband and my teenage boys all gave their thumbs-up approval (since their mouths were full of cookie) and my preschoolers also loved them. My husband even took a few into work to share with his employees and their response was "Tell your wife we love her for sharing!"
Sweet Andy's Cookies also offers Chocolate with Peanut Butter, White Chocolate with Macadamia Nuts, Pumpkin, Cinnamon Sugar, and Lemon. These huge, gourmet cookies come five to a bag and sell for just $5.99.
Their cookies are always made with all natural ingredients of the highest quality. Sweet Andy's Cookies also offers Cookie Gift Boxes that can be created with an assortment of any of their cookie flavors to make sure you give the perfect gift.
Perfect for a sweet Valentine's Day gift, Mother's Day gift, birthday or thank you gift, Sweet Andy's Cookies are a real treat. Find out more at www.sweetandyscookies.com and be sure to follow them on Facebook and Twitter. Then enter below to win!

ChiBar Snack Bars - Review

If you love snack bars, crave high-energy snacks, and want organic fruits and nuts in your diet, then you need to try the ChiBar. It is a crunchy, chewy, satisfying blend of delicious fruits and nuts. I received the Cacoa Cherry and Papaya Pineapple but they also offer Mango Ginger and Berry Berry flavors.
ChiBar products are all natural, low glycemic, non GMO, gluten free, soy free, dairy free, certified Kosher, and each one is handcrafted. I really liked both flavors and one bar definitely filled me up and left me feeling satisfied until mealtime. A ChiBar is great healthy snack for kids and adults!

Win $50 Amazon or Paypal - Jack Templar: Monster Hunter Book Blast


Jack Templar: Monster Hunter

Orphan Jack Templar has no memory of his parents and only the smallest details from his Aunt Sophie about how they died. The day before Jack's fourteenth birthday, things start to change for him. At first it's great: A sudden new strength helps him defend his nose-picking friend "T-Rex" from the school bully, and even his crush, Cindy Adams, takes notice. But then a mysterious girl named Eva arrives and tells him two facts that will change his life forever. First, that he's the descendent of a long line of monster hunters and he's destined to be in the family business. Second, that there's a truce between man and monster that children are off-limits...until their fourteenth birthday! Jack has only one day before hundreds of monsters will descend on his little town of Sunnyvale and try to kill him.

As if that weren't enough, things get even more complicated when Jack discovers that the Lord of the Creach (as the monsters are collectively known) holds a personal grudge against him and will do anything to see that Jack has a slow and painful death. To stay alive and save his friends, Jack will have to battle werewolves, vampires, harpies, trolls, zombies and more. But perhaps the most dangerous thing he must face is the truth about his past. Why do the other hunters call him the last Templar? Why do they whisper that he may be the "One?" Why do the monsters want him dead so badly? Even as these questions plague him, he quickly discovers survival is his new full-time job and that in the world of monster hunters, nothing is really what it seems.

Author Jeff Gunhus

Jeff Gunhus grew up in Cyprus, Greece, and Saudi Arabia where there was a distinct lack of television. He quickly found books were the gateway to incredible adventures, fascinating characters and unbelievable discoveries. Now, with five children of his own (all who watch too much television, in his opinion), he has enjoyed revisiting his old books and reliving those adventures all over again.
