A very good read—not a formula romance, but a story that deals with complicated life issues and I like that in a book.

Mary Walker comes from a close knit family. She enters into a relationship with Robert Mackenzie, who seems like a wonderfully romantic person at first, but under the surface he is a dangerously possessive and controlling individual who sets out to cut Mary off from her friends and family, isolating her so that she has no ties with anyone but him.  This relationship is well portrayed and ends in a frightening situation that destroys Mary’s ability to trust and leaves her in a depressed state.

Build in your mind the Trinity of you: the person you were, the person you are and the person you want to be.” We are each responsible for our own self-mastery. There are no unattainable goals.


 Because of the title, “On Virtue,” I expected this to be a “religious book,” but it isn’t. Spirituality is an inherent part of who we are as human beings, therefore it is part of becoming the best we can be, but primarily this book is a beautiful, thought provoking, instructive missive of hope and encouragement for any individual to build the life they really desire for themselves.

I read on an older Kindle and while I’m reading I make notes and remarks to myself throughout the book. I really appreciate that feature and when I sat down to write this review I discovered that I had marked 63 spots that had resonated with me. When I clicked through my notes, I was struck again by the depth of meaning to be found in this short read. I think I could (and will) read this book several times to get the full depth of it.

I highly recommend this to anyone. You may be as pleasantly impressed as I am. You may find the way to create the life you really want.

I am super excited. Months of long hours and hard work are coming to fruition!  The Hand of Fate, Book Three of the Belanger Creek Ranch Series will be available on Amazon in Kindle format and paperback soon! 


This book captured me from beginning to end. David Drake and Vicki (Vitoria) Benvinuti were star crossed lovers in high school and after graduation, their relationship did not survive David’s  service in Vietnam.

Years later, they meet again and fan the flame of love that still smoulders between them. Now they are both successful people in the world of business.  When David starts buying up shares in her family’s business, Vicki is convinced he is trying to make a hostile takeover.  His apparent betrayal quickly turns the flicker of love into a raging fire of anger and she fights him with everything she has, vowing she will let no one strip her family of their hard earned holdings. David knows what he needs to accomplish and he will do what ever it takes to achieve it.   In the boardroom he is cunning, ruthless and determined.  In his heart he holds a loyalty to a man who befriended him years ago.  He has given his word, and he will not betray it, even to salvage his relationship with Vicki.

Martin’s descriptive writing is masterful and compelling. The plot is cleverly woven, taking you from farm fields and vineyards in Poke Valley, California, into the offices of big business in cities of America; from the fear and desolation of a young man on the battlefield in Vietnam, back to the US, on the platform of an oil rig  that is eating up millions of dollars he can’t afford to lose as it drills a dry hole. It is filled with action, intrigue, loyalty, love, revenge, mystery and suspense. The characters were well rounded; flawed but believable, and I related to them completely.  I fell in love with David Drake.

I read a lot, and I read many different genres. I have to say, it has been a long time since I have read a book that had so much depth to it; one that I know I will read again and as an author myself, thought “this is a book I would be proud to have written.”

In the past few months I have read several of L.J. Martins books and I have become a fan. I am so impressed with his ability to write to so many different genres and do it so well.

Don’t miss a great read.  You can purchase Windfall on Amazon

Melissa Foster does not write ordinary books! This is a story about love, loss, gruelling pain– emotionally and physically, grief, feelings of betrayal and then overcoming all these emotions in circumstances few of us could comprehend and would hope to never have to deal with. I never imagined how this story would play out.

Tess and Beau are a married couple in their thirties -continue reading….>
