Here we are. Book five in the Independence Island Series, Mishaps Off the Mainland by Tabitha Bouldin

All Mel wants is to run the business of her dreams.

Melody Carmichael’s mobile pet grooming business might sink before it can sail when a favorite pet escapes her care. Doggie escape-artist, Daphne, got a taste of freedom, and the Afghan hound refuses to be found.

Enter Zeke Solomon. Desperate to bring the dog home for his grandmother, Zeke steps in to save the day.

And working together with Zeke would be a snap—if they could just find the dumb dog.

Zeke is desperate to prove himself worthy of the Solomon name and step out from his father’s shadow. With his father breathing down his neck and demanding he return to the company business, Zeke must decide whether confronting the man he admires most is worth the risk of alienation.

Everything’s falling apart, and Mel’s dream transforms into a nightmare. She thought this was what God wanted for her life, but can you blame her for second-guessing everything?

Was it all just a mistake?

What are we doing this week?

By now, you know that we do fun giveaways when it is release week for each book. I hope you have been enjoying them.

This time, we each dressed up our pets. How fun is that?

If you have followed me for any length of time, you know I have a houseful of pets and people. Sadly, they (both pets and the people) don’t let me dress them up unless they are cold.

Harley, our 7-year-old white pit bull, was a trooper when I received a crown from an Author for being part of her group. We had just adopted him from a local rescue at the time.

Then, there is our 2-year-old, Bear, who was a sick little pitty when we adopted him two years ago. We had to dress him in sweaters and let him sleep on a rice heat pad to keep him warm. Thankfully, he has recovered with plenty of pep and a lot of anxiety.

Lastly, my “Fur- niece”, Liara. She is known in the area as the biker corgi. The little thing is a ball of energy and gets excited when it is time to hit the road with “mommy”.

Don’t they all look so sweet?

I hope you have been enjoying these monthly tours as much as we authors have had fun coming up with ideas. The best part is the fun has only begun. We have so much more to give to our beautiful readers.
