Here's my back yard during sunset...



Here's my dogs... Just because they're cute.

He’s found her at last…
Cain Killion knows himself to be a damaged man. His only redeeming quality? The extrasensory connection to blood that he uses to catch killers. His latest case takes a macabre turn when he discovers a familiar and haunting symbol linking the crime to his horrific past—and the one woman who might understand what it means.

Only to lose her to a nightmare
 Mercy Ledger is brave, resilient, beautiful—and in terrible danger. The moment Cain finds her the line between good and evil blurs and the only thing clear to them is that they belong together. Love is the antidote for blood—but is their bond strong enough to overcome the madness that stalks them?











Abbie Roads writes dark emotional novels, but always gives her hero and heroine a happy ending... After torturing them for three hundred and fifty pages.

  3. Greenery everywhere I look. Singing birds. Planning and prep for vegetable garden. Being able to let my cats out so they can run off some of the "crazies" developed over the long winter hibernation. LOL

  8. My favorite thing about Spring&Summer is the sunshine and green trees. I love in Michigan,so we don't see much sunshine or greenery most of the year.Lots of snow and ice, but not much sun. Michigan is beautiful in those 2 seasons.

  27. I like to see the flowers in bloom, and hear the birds come back on their way further North. Living In Southern California, I don't have to deal with snow, but we get May Gray and June Gloom when the Coastal Eddy thickens and covers the LA Basin. I like the cool breezes coming off the ocean, and in Spring, the wonderful breeze brings us hints of summer to come.

  37. Here in Sydney, Australia we are heading into Winter... while we have beautiful sunny winter days amongst the chilly days... I can't wait for the warmer weather to arrive... those days are spent reading on my back verandah... chilling out, just enjoying nature and spending time with our ageing dog... It's also time to enjoy the fresh air... refreshing life's batteries and being creative with my mixed media - that's when a book or ipad isn't in my hands... lol!!

  69. Spring and summer for me is the endless cycle of life - rebirth and renewal, with everything coming back to life and flourishing after the cold and bleakness of winter. The explosion of colors, the sounds of animals, the warmth of the sun, children's laughter.
