Remember When (The Remember Trilogy Book 1) by T. Torrest

“Hysterical! Made me want to break out a can of Aqua Net and hit the Jersey shore. Loved the characters and their sweet and steamy love story. You’ll find yourself rooting for Layla and dreaming about Trip for years to come.”
-Mika Thomas, Fiction Review

** Author’s Note: Remember When is the first book in a trilogy series but there is NO CLIFFHANGER. This romantic comedy novel is intended for mature teen readers and immature adult readers due to some high school sex scenes, underage drinking, questionable language and 1980s flashbacks. **

Years before Trip Wiley could be seen on movie screens all over the world, he could be seen sitting in the desk behind me in my high school English class.

This was back in 1990, and I cite the year only to avoid dumbfounding you when references to big hair or stretch pants are mentioned. Although, come to think of it, I am from Northern New Jersey, which may serve as explanation enough. We were teenagers then, way back in a time before anyone, himself included, could even dream he’d turn into the Hollywood commodity that he is today.

I’m sure I don’t need to tell you who Trip Wiley is. But on the off chance you’ve been living under a rock for the past decade, just know that these days, he’s the actor found at the top of every casting director’s wish list. He’s incredibly talented and insanely gorgeous, the combination of which has made him very rich, very famous and very desirable.

And not just to casting directors, either.

I can’t confirm any of the gossip from his early years out in Tinseltown, but based on what I knew of his life before he was famous, I can tell you that the idea of Girls-Throwing-Themselves-At-Trip is not a new concept.

I should know. I was one of them.

And my life hasn’t been the same since.

A Heart of Time by Shari J. Ryan and Lisa Brown

“Time of death…” the doctor said.I won’t forget that moment I looked over at Ellie—the paleness of her once rosy cheeks, the blue hue coating her perfect lips—the woman I had been with since we were five years old.

Her forever just ended at twenty-five.“You need to say your goodbyes…” the doctor said.How do I say goodbye to the one person in my life I could never say goodbye to?My body is numb, and my heart hurts. Hurts like someone just ripped it out of my chest. Which is ironic…“We are going to remove her heart now, Hunter. It was her wish to donate,” the doctor said.She never told me this.She never told me another woman would carry on with her beating heart. She never told me this woman knew me but wouldn’t let me know her.She never told me if I should follow her heart, or if I should follow mine.She knew. She could have told me…

Home Grown: Book One in the Based on True Stories Collection by Ninie Hammon

DON’T MESS WITH A WOMAN WHO BUYS INK BY THE BARREL     
FACT…
In 1989, federal authorities busted what they called the Cornbread Mafia, the largest domestic marijuana growing operation in American history. They confiscated 182 tons of pot with a street value– in 1989!–of $400 million. Federal marshals arrested 56 men in 5 states…but they all came from one small town in Kentucky.

FICTION…
Somebody murdered Jim Bingham, shot him dead in front of his own newspaper office in the small town of Brewster, Kentucky, and now his heartbroken daughter must abandon the world of academic journalism for the real world of running the newspaper he left behind.
 
But Sarabeth Bingham soon discovers that marijuana-growing has corrupted the idyllic small town where she grew up. 

The sheriff can’t get a marijuana conviction because the county’s jury pool is tainted. 

Her cousin grows weed and has lost his wife and daughter to the world of drugs. 

Sarabeth finds herself falling for a handsome bourbon distillery owner she’s convinced is financing his business with dope money.

And a ruthless farmer named Bubba Jamison will do anything–absolutely anything–to protect his empire.

After 3 children find dope money in an abandoned building and the dopers kidnap them to get it back, Sarabeth heeds the words on the plaque that has hung above her father’s desk for as long as she can remember: “Don’t mess with a man who buys ink by the barrel!”

In a blazing front-page editorial in the next issue of the Tribune, Sarabeth declares war on the marijuana-growing industry! Now, the growers have to shut her up and she soon learns a terrifying lesson: dopers fight dirty.
         

* * * 
          Home Grown isn’t the true story of the rise and fall of the Cornbread Mafia, not from a historical perspective; thrillers like this are too intricately woven to stick to the facts. But the novel is as real as what actually did happen, a mystery thrillers and suspense story with a female protagonist who grabs the reader and drags him into the action to live it with her. Sarabeth Bingham isn’t the stereotypical heroine of sappy contemporary women’s fiction. She is flawed, human and real. She has multiple sclerosis and a past filled with the kind of pain that’s the mortar for building walls. Home Grown gives crime fiction a heart–and the face of a red-haired woman who didn’t set out to be a hero. 

GOODREADS AND AMAZON.COM
READERS’ PRAISE
Her books will entertain you and keep you flipping pages. She pulls no punches and no characters are safe. But she will also move you emotionally. This is the 4th Hammon novel I’ve read and I can’t wait for her 5th. Bestselling author Eric Wilson, Top 100 Amazon Reviewer
Ninie has a way of sharing real happenings of that time period through fiction and protecting the real people involved. I know because I live in the small town she wrote about. ohsolma
Mystery, thrillers and suspense stories and historical thrillers are the genres I enjoy, and Home Grown has a reality and believability that’s rare in crime fiction. The novel may be billed as women’s fiction, but I’m a man and it’s one of the best dramas I’ve ever read. T. Fredrick
The fact that this book is fiction, but based on events that actually took place makes it all the more gripping. This is the first book of Hammon’s I have read. I shall definitely be reading her others. Shirley Ford
Home Grown is based on a true story from 30 years ago but the greed and evil felt very contemporary. Women will identify with the female protagonist because she’s no superwoman. Her vulnerability moves the book beyond typical crime fiction. Sally Hayes
