Welcome to the  Lovingthebook Launch Party

 We are partying here in celebration of some wonderful stories from a great author: Monique Bucheger.....

Here 's the rest of the party.......

 I started reading The Secret Sisters Club a few years ago and really loved it!!  The story was a great example of parents helping their children with the trials of life and how two best friends forever (BBF) can become as close as sisters.

Now I've read Simply West of Heaven which is the sequel to The Secret Sisters Club and the story continues of the adventures of Ginnie and Tillie and their life together on the West farm.

With Ginnie still dealing with the death of her mother and her Dad keeping her mother's journals hidden away, Ginnie has to overcome the urge to wait patiently for her Dad to return those journals she so desperately wants to read.  There is something hiding in those pages and the secret of what happened so long ago before Ginnie could remember is driving her crazy. What is it that makes her Dad angry in those journals?

These stories are age appropriate for pre-teens and teens and deal with the reality of death and divorce in a family. The compassion for those children who have to deal with these issues helps the reader come to love the characters and understand a life many teens must live.

The Secret Sisters Club and Simply West of Heaven are          $.99 until NOV 30.


 Simply West of Heaven:

Twelve-year-old BFFs schemed to get Ginnie’s widowed dad to fall in love with Tillie’s divorced mom. When their parents go along with the matchmaking, the girls are stoked. Sweet! Not long after though, Ginnie stumbles upon her late mom's journals, making life even more awesome sauce … until her dad confiscates the journals, determined to protect Ginnie from a danger he won’t name.

Ginnie is counting on her future sister's help to make Dad change his mind, but Tillie's not so sure the ghost of Ginnie's mom will make a good addition to their new family tree. Besides, Tillie is too busy trying to keep the memory of her abusive, no-good , rotten-excuse-for-a-birth-father from bubbling to the surface to worry about what's bugging Ginnie. He left six years ago and Tillie’s knows a better dad when she sees one … Ginnie’s dad.

The girls' world gets flipped upside-down when a blast from the past shows up and makes Tillie go nutburgers. Ginnie is torn between helping her best friend and what could be the answer to her prayers. Life gets complicated lickety-split in what is sure to be the most pivotal summer of Ginnie’s life.


A blurb from the story:
“Mysti, stay with Tillie.”
“What’s wrong, Uncle Jake?” Tillie asked.
He glanced at Tillie. She knew he didn’t see her. “She can’t be here. Todd’s gonna flip his lid.”
Anxiety quickly replaced all the fun and carefree feelings Tillie had been enjoying. “Why? Who’s here?”
“Nobody.” Uncle Jake pointed to the bar stool she just vacated. “Stay here. Keep Mysti with you. Please.” He turned and hurried through the doorway.
Mysti shook her head at Tillie. “I’m not staying.”
“Me neither.” Tillie followed Mysti through the dining room to the entryway.
Uncle Jake stopped so suddenly that Mysti and Tillie piled into him. He wagged his finger at each of them. “I told you to stay in the kitchen.”
“I came to get Mysti.” Tillie peeked through the screen door, gasping when she saw Ginnie’s mom. “She’s not dead.” Tillie grabbed Uncle Jake’s arm, fear and disbelief coursing through her. “Why isn’t Ginnie’s mom dead?”
“What?” Uncle Jake looked straight through Tillie like an x-ray machine. “Of course Queenie’s dead.”
“Then who’s that?” Tillie demanded, pointing to the woman that looked like an older version of her best friend.
Uncle Jake lifted an impatient Mysti into his arms. After shushing Mysti, he locked his eyes on Tillie’s. “That is my brother’s second-worst nightmare, up close and personal.”
