Still on Hiatus…

Hello book friends. I will be stepping away from blogging for a few weeks. My grandmother sadly passed away September 10, 2018. She had another stroke and God finally took her home. I will really miss her, but I know she’s not suffering anymore and is in a better place.

Today is my first day back at work and it’s still really hard to believe she’s gone. I keep thinking she’s just on vacation and any day now she’ll come home and I’ll see her again. I know she’s finally at peace, but I’m just going to miss seeing her every day, hearing her voice when she plays with our dogs, and just her being there.

I don’t know when exactly I’ll be back, but hopefully in a few weeks.

Don’t ever forget to tell your loved ones how much you appreciate and love them cause you just never know…

I’m going to miss her smile and laugh the most.


MARCH 7, 1936 – SEPTEMBER 10, 2018

Blog Tour – Spotlight for Love and Other Secrets by Christina Mandelski


Hello everyone! Welcome to my blog tour stop for Love and Other Secrets by Christina Mandelski hosted by Chapter by Chapte Blog Tours.



Publication Date:  September 3, 2018
Publisher:  Entangled Teen Crush


Star lacrosse player Alex “Kov” Koviak has it all. Or so everyone thinks. He’s real good at pretending his life is perfect…until he meets Bailey. The girl challenges him and pushes him and makes him laugh like he’s never laughed before. Their friendship is their little secret, and he’s happy to keep her to himself.

Between school, two jobs, and trying to get into NYU film school, Bailey Banfield has zero time for a social life. But then she meets Alex in her express lane at the grocery store, and their secret friendship becomes the only place she can breathe. She refuses to complicate that with more. No matter how charming Alex can be.

When Bailey decides to film outrageous promposals for her NYU application, she enlists Alex’s help to plan an over-the-top, epic promposal to someone else. Too bad the only prom date Alex wants anywhere near Bailey is him.

For a guy who seems to have it all, he’s about to lose the only thing he’s ever wanted.

Disclaimer: This Entangled Crush contains a cocky lacrosse player in over his head with his secret best friend, unexpected midnight kisses, swoon-worthy slow dancing, and movie-night cuddling that’ll make you ache. You’re going to want an Alex of your own!

christina_mandelskiChristina Mandelski was born in South Florida, where her love of reading was cultivated in a house full of books. Stories like The Little House series, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, Island of the Blue Dolphins and The Secret Garden, filled her imagination and fueled her dreams to be a writer. That dream came true when her first young adult novel, THE SWEETEST THING, was published in 2011, and she’s beyond thrilled about her upcoming series for Entangled Crush. Chris lives in Houston with one handsome husband, two beautiful daughters, and two freakshow cats. She has a fondness for the beach, her family and friends, and she still loves to read (especially curled up with a good cup of coffee!) She also enjoys shopping, traveling and eating, especially cake. Always cake. When she’s not doing these things, you can find her holed in a cozy spot with her laptop, writing. Visit her at
