One Good Catch

It's Friday the 13th. Again. Most of my plans for the upcoming weekend involve getting posts ready for the A to Z Challenge both on my blog and on the other two blogs where I'm a co-host, IWSG and the A to Z Challenge Blog home. I'm pleased to help Heather M. Gardner with the release of her novel. I'm sure the 13th will bring her good luck, not bad.

A little wisdom to take us into the weekend.
"A dog owns nothing yet is seldom dissatisfied." Irish Proverb

One Good Catch, A Maguire’s Corner novel


Ignoring a recent trauma that is affecting her everyday life, ER Doctor Kate Maguire engages in some high risk activities, but putting herself in these dangerous situations isn’t enough to feed her edginess. She needs something more. When her brother’s high school best friend comes back to town, it’s her chance for a ‘no strings attached’ fling with the man who still headlines in all her best dreams.

Rhys MacGrath’s days of one-night-stands are long over. The pro-football player might be side-lined at rehab for a shoulder injury, but that doesn’t mean he can’t admire and desire the all-grown-up, so-damn-hot, version of the tomboy he once knew. His sudden interest in Kate might be aggravating his best friend, who doesn’t approve, but it’s her indifference that’s driving Rhys crazy.

Everything heats up when Kate’s nosy nature sets her in the line of fire of an arsonist forcing them to deal with more than just the sparks igniting between them.

Heather M. Gardner's love of books began on the hand-woven rugs of her small town library where her mother worked. There she had a never-ending supply of stories to read at her fingertips. As a teen, her favorite genres to curl up with were romance and mysteries. When she started to create her own stories, they were the perfect fit.
Heather resides in New York with her best friend who is also her husband, plus her talented and handsome son. She is currently owned by four stray cats. Heather's a full-time mom, works part-time from home, a chocolate enthusiast, coffee junkie, cat addict, book hoarder and fluent in sarcasm

Hope your weekend plans are a little more exciting than mine though I'll be really happy when all the posts are scheduled and ready. Do you know any dissatisfied dogs? And a little Pratchett to honor the loss of another icon of fantasy and science fiction. Starting to make me feel old. Do you agree with Terry's description of English?

  1. Hi Susan .. good luck with your weekend plans .. it's Mother's Day here, so life takes on a different light (even though I am not a mother .. I can relate!!) ...

    Interesting that quote .. I keep coming across different forms of English in other countries ... it is an interesting language.

    Good luck to Heather - the story line sounds tantalising .. cheers Hilary

    1. It is interesting how different English can be in different English language countries. Like your 'sitcks' that we call crutches.

  2. Terry's observation is funny.

    Congrats to Heather.

  3. I do think that's a fair assessment of the English language. We're hoarders, too - most words of any language in the world, by a healthy margin.

    Congrats to Heather!

  4. Sounds like an interesting book; I say that a lot when reading synopses of books; but lots of great plots out there written by great authors! Wishing Heather much success with the book!

    Sounds like a good weekend you have planned; it will be good to have the A/Z done; I have 14 of them done; have all the letters, just need to write the rest of them. Planning to definitely by the end of the month :)

    Enjoy the weekend!

  7. Yay for Heather! I'm so excited to read her new book. :) And so sad about Pratchett. I have most of the Discworld books. He'll be missed. Good luck with your posts!

  10. As much as I love and miss Terry Pratchett, I really don't think you can apply that definition only to English. I mean, they're all like that. Unless they're France, where there are laws against using non-French words.

    1. Is that for real? How dare the French not let us invade their speech?

  11. Another great cover! Is it me, or are novels getting amazing covers the last year or so? Then again, I'm a sucker for the color.

    I cried over Sir Pratchett, though I never met him. I think some of my family members were confused by it... my emotion.

    1. You might have cried because you were so ill too. It is a lovely color.

    2. Alex is a good egg.

      Happy Weekend.
