Rose Baker is both shocked and infuriated to find that her brother Judd has been the ringleader of a conspiracy to promote political assassinations over the years. These assassinations were of Rose’s political idols. In the violent argument that ensues, Judd falls and is fatally injured.
Certain that his dozen co-conspirators will never face the justice they deserve, she hatches a plan to make sure that they do. Traveling the four corners of the country, she takes them out, one by one. Always a step ahead of the conspirators and the authorities, who never suspect a seventy year old well-dressed woman to be involved in such acts, they have no idea who to look for.
Baker’s Dozen is about political hatred and retribution in the extreme, and how idealistic beliefs can permanently distort one’s perspective regardless of which side is involved.
A wonderful book, full of well developed characters. My interested was held until the very end and I look forward to more from M Will Smith. I love that the person taking on a vigilante vendetta is a senior citizen and woman to boot.
Mr. Smith retired early from a job as a transportation planner in the Pacific Northwest and went sailing by himself. He lived on the sailboat for ten years and sailed up and down the West Coast from Seattle to central Mexico. During that time he wrote a number of novels while in anchorages or marinas. However, he did not publish them, so they sat for over ten years on floppy discs. Last year his wife discovered them and after reading one insisted that he publish it. After considerable editing, he did so through his daughter’s publishing company, Red Frog. Since then, he has published two others and is currently in the process of publishing another. Thus far he has not actively promoted any of them.
He has two daughters who live in Los Angeles. His wife is the primary editor and cheerleader for his books. They live in the Phoenix area in the winter and spend summers in the White Mountains of Arizona. A book club in the White Mountains read the first book, Baker’s Dozen, and received it very favorably. They have three small dogs. The dogs are a joy to them, but are apparently making the local vets wealthy.

An Angel is he...
From the first moment he saw her, MIKAH BLAKE was seized by an inexplicable need to protect Vivienne Callahan, a fragile but fiery young woman who’s awakened a slumbering power within him. With his encouragement, Vivienne has begun to turn her life around, and things seem to be heading in the direction of a slow but certain happily-ever-after. But that happy ending is side tracked by a rising evil that is determined to destroy her.
When her dark past comes back to claim her, Mikah is caught in a whirlwind of events that lead him down a path he was born into but never understood. Until now.
Can Mikah save Vivienne? Will his love be enough? Will he be able to control his angelic powers and use them to protect his newfound love?
Give Me Hope picks up right where Give Me Reason left off. Now you can breathe again after the cliff hanger at the end of the first book *grin*
Give Me Reason did an incredible job of setting the stage, presenting the characters and the back story. Give Me Hope gives us the budding romance and the revelation of what Mikah is. This is a shock to both the readers and the character himself. Give Me Reason is very much Vivienne’s story and Give Me Hope is from Mikahs point of view, but not a repeat of the first book like some authors have done. The story very much continues forward but with Mikah as the main character. You are just going to fall in live with Mikah, he is so SWOON WORTHY!
Pay very close attention to the small things that are said and the innocent touches that are given, you can follow these bread crumbs for clues into book three (Give Me Desire) which will be published very soon. I can hardly wait for what Zoey Derrick has in store in Give Me Desire!
Like the first book, I read this cover to cover in one sitting. Sleep is really over rated when a series like this presents itself.
Not only does she aim to take her readers on an erotic dance that lasts the night, it allows her to empty her mind of stories we all wish were true. Her stories are hopeful yet true to life, skillfully avoiding melodrama and the unrealistic, bringing her gripping Erotica only closer to the heart of those that dare dipping into it.
The intimacy of her fantasies that she shares with her readers is thrilling and encouraging, climactic yet full of suspense. She is a loving mistress, up for anything, of which any reader is doomed to return to again and again.

Cassie Scot, still stinging from her parents’ betrayal, wants out of the magical world. But it isn't letting her go. Her family is falling apart and despite everything, it looks like she may be the only one who can save them. To complicate matters, Cassie owes Evan her life, making it difficult for her to deny him anything he really wants. And he wants her. Sparks fly when they team up to find two girls missing from summer camp, but long-buried secrets may ruin their hopes for happiness. Book 2 in the Cassie Scot Mystery series.
Wow where do I begin? I feel awe at Cassie's deductive abilities and strength and bravery but My heart breaks for her as well. Cassie continues to solve all kinds f crimes and mysteries in this second book. She is amazing to follow as she works out what is going on and who the bad guys are. The way she can outwit them is just awesome. She is constantly having to go head to head with Evan because he wants to wrap her in bubble wrap and keep her safe and she will have none of it.
The part where my heart breaks for her is in the way her parents treat her and also the constant struggle for her and Evan. In this second book I really dislike Cassie's parents A LOT. I can not go into what they do because that would ruin it for you to read the book yourself. But they really made me angry several times and at this point I still have not forgiven them. Maybe in the third book that will change.
There is a huge secret revealed at the end of the book so be prepared to have your socks knocked off.
I really need book three!!
Buy it Amazon B&N
