Barely Alive by Bonnie R. Paulson
" This book is SO different from the usual zombie books I've read.

I love how some of the zombies are able to maintain their consciousness and feelings even
they have been affected by the "virus".

Love the main character, Paul, who's so caring and stro... " Read more of this review »

Psycho Inside Me by Bonnie R. Paulson
" Intense, but I made it through. Reality is rough. I liked the main character, Cassie and her psycho-ness.
It brought out emotions I could not handle at times, so I put it down and came back later. I am an emotional reader.
Odd Man Out by Bonnie R. Paulson

This book tore me apart and put me back together.

It made me think about the lessons I need to learn here on earth and the ones I might be learning after death.

“Deegan pushed once, twice, and rolled the body in. The current's fast fingers claimed Bobby and in less than two seconds he'd slipped beneath the rippling surface. About ten yards down, he bobbed up and then disappeared again. Oh, look, Bobby was bobbing. I chuckled.”
Bonnie R. Paulson, Psycho Inside Me

“Thou shalt not lie. Oh, man. Commandments dropped like flies when i was around.”
Bonnie R. Paulson, Psycho Inside Me

“But when I did see him he'd give me a smile like he'd been saving it just for me. Like we shard a secret more intimate than the death of a bully, more like a lovers' tryst or something. I liked the idea of an affair. It seemed so much more romantic then what it really was.”
Bonnie R. Paulson, Psycho Inside Me

While here, I want you to know that if you ever have any questions about the books on my shelves or about, I would be delighted to answer them. Also, I list as much eHarlequin news and author news as I can so be sure to watch for my updates.

Happy reading,

Thanks for the friendship. I noticed we have similar taste in books. I read that you like romance and action and I yes I am trying to get people to read my book, but I actually think you might like it.

Let me know if you have a chance to read it. Or if you have any suggestions for my next read.

Here is the link,
