When Fates Collide Arm Candy

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun adventure story with a lot of laughs. October 12, 2013
By J.D. Holiday VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition
When Fates Collide…Arm Candy gives you a look, with a comical view, inside the bounty hunting business. Although they might seem an unlikely duo, these two women, Alex and Hope, like each other which is just what they need in order to work in the world they find themselves in. Their partnership make their job look easy.
It’s far from all business adding to the laughs as Alex and Hope join forces with others from all walks for life as they travel from
New Orleans, where Alex swears the best coffee on the planet is, to St. Maarten to get their jumpers, the two criminals who jumped their bail. Their adventure keeps the story moving just the way I like it. So, while it’s cold outside this winter, my advice is to go with Alex and Hope as they take you with them to the warm and sunny island of St. Maarten for a bit of fun!
~Author and Illustrator, JD Holiday

And if you really want to know the characters in the third book you need to read The Pink Canary a fall down funny drag queen comedy

For Those of You Who have Wondered Who My Co – Conspirator is in the When Fates Collide Series Here She is

 

Okay kiddies this is for all of you who have wondered who in the world was insane enough to co-write When Fates Collide the series with me.  You know the one- When Fates Collide, When Fates Collide Mardi Gras Bound and the latest release When Fates Collide Arm Candy. Well let me introduce you to her. I am proud to call her not only friend but also sister in our insane writings. We have known each other for many years when both of us were caught up in the not so nice workings of a publisher who to this day shall remain nameless. To say this publisher was a crook is an understatement. (Another story for another day) On the flip side Andrea and I met joined forces and have been sisters ever since. While she lives on the West Coast of Florida and I live on the East it is like there is no distance between us.

When we write it is like we are sitting side by side with one mind (twisted though it may be). Our characters are the same way. They act as one unit even though they are as different as daylight and dark.

Andy as I like to call her no longer writes, she has chosen to move on to other endeavors however – she is always up to the antics of Hope and Alex the characters we brought together a couple of years ago simply because we could.

Today Andy has taken the path of a yoga instructor- and it is not the typical yoga. She also is able to perform weddings of any kind – she prefers not to do religious but other than that she is up to just about anything else.

She can teach a student yoga via the internet so you don’t have to be in front of her- however if you live close by you can meet with her on Sundays when she does a group yoga session.

She is one talented lady and one that I am blessed to have in my life. She believes in the old Wise Woman ways and is not afraid to talk about it.

If you have not yet hooked up with this wonderful – beautiful creature you are missing out. But you must know this, like me she does not suffer fools lightly nor does she put up with BS- like me she knows that life is way to short. She tells it like it is if you ask you. So if you really don’t want to know don’t ask. On the flip side she is kind, funny, wicked, loyal and loving. She supports no-kill shelters for animals, and like me she thinks that for the most part animals are better company than most humans.

If you haven’t friended her – you are missing out. You won’t regret it. Like her Yoga page on facebook hook up with her on her friends page and learn how to renew your mind, body and soul through Yoga. She can teach you how!!!!!

The Very First Review for When Fates Collide Arm Candy is in!

In my morning mail I found the very first review for When Fates Collide Arm Candy the third in the When Fates Collide series I co-write with Andrea Dean Van Scoyoc. It was a nice beginning to my week. The series was born when Andrea decided that we needed to co-write with each other. We each drew on our experiences. She at the time worked in an office and was bored out of her mind, I on the other hand, had been a bounty hunter before moving to Florida.

It was a match made in Heaven so to speak- two women who are polar opposites came together to create something so funny that we put disclaimers in the front of the book. That disclaimer is we are not responsible for soiled clothing as the reader reads the books.

When Fates Collide Arm Candy takes the reader on a ride of all rides- The fun starts at the first page and doesn’t stop until the end.

Here is the review from a reader by the name of Cynda Crance I will let her tell you in her words her reactions:

“Just finished reading When Fates Collide, Arm Candy by Yvonne Mason and her co-writer Andrea Dean Van Scoyoc. The characters are colorful and full of adaptability to the ever changing pursuits they use to capture the bad guys. A fast moving, captivating, and enjoyable book to read.”

If you haven’t yet picked up this little book you need to – but you might want to read the first two before – When Fates Collide, When Fates Collide Mardi Gras Bound and you dont’ want to forget The Pink Canary as we bring some of the unique characters from that book into When Fates Collide Arm Candy.

Thank you Cynda for this review.

This time Hope and Alex are headed to St. Marteen but it doesn’t stop there. The slippery jumpers run off to Key West.

More Coming with Hope and Alex

Okay boys and girls and children of all ages just when you thought you would not see another book by me for a while it happens. Andrea Dean Van Scoyoc (you remember her she was the Mistress of  the Damned) and I are smack in the middle of the third  When Fates Collide Series.  You remember Hope Harrington the mousy secretary who just had to have a change in her dull life and Alex Morgan the cynical no nonsense bounty hunter. They hooked up in When Fates Collide when Alex thought Hope was her jumper and embarrassed her by taking her down in Hope’s local haunt.

After that it was on like Donkey Kong (for those of you to young to understand it was one of the first video games before you were born). Hope insisted that she hook up with Alex to go after the real jumper – why not she wasn’t busy that weekend- just like she was not busy any weekend.

Hope didn’t know that he life would forever change as she knew it. Each case would be as different as night and day. She would go places meet people and do things that she never expected to do in her drab little life.

When Fates Collide was just the beginning:when fates collied front for press releases

After grabbing their jumper in Key West Hope and Alex are off to New Orleans right in the middle of Mardi Gras to pick up a Marie wanna be who has decided to lead them on a merry chase in the bayou along with a few more colorful characters which makes Hope’s head spin and that is just the beginning. Things as usual do not go as planned and Hope finds herself in a place she never thought she would be. Alex of course isn’t happy she has to not only get her jumper she also has to find Hope who is no MIA during the middle of Mardi Gras (Cue the music from Deliverance):

When Fates Collide Mardi Gras Bound

When Fates Collide Mardi Gras Bound

Things go from bad to worse in the newest installment of the Abbott and Costello slapstick ride. After Hope and Alex finish their little adventure in New Orleans with  a little help from their friends they find themselves in St. Marteen looking for an old Nemesis- which turns out to be two of them. This adventure is not complete without a few old friends from Key West one of the being the owner of The Pink Canary:

The Pink Canary

The Pink Canary

The Pink Canary is owned by a Private Eye named Lou who not only owns the club he is the headliner known as Lola. Lola has a sidekick who is known as Penelope and a new found friend also a drag queen Vicky.

 

The newest adventure of Hope and Alex begin in St. Marteen and it seems that these three ladies have shown up in St. Marteen at a very good  time. Alex enlists their aid and catching her new jumpers  St.James and of course Momma. This new adventure while starting in St. Marteen ends up back in Key West where Hope once again finds herself in the middle of a situation.

 

The Abbott and Costello slapstick continues in the newest of the series When Fates Collide Arm Candy. Alex and Hope are running out of time as they try to out think and out smart St. James and Momma in order to get them back to jail. They enlist the aid of St. James’s newest squeeze better known as his arm candy. But as with all of our books things are not always as they seem:When Fates Collide - Arm Candy

If you have not yet read the series or Pink Canary you might just want to pick them up. They are all stand alones however they are funnier when read in sequence. Pink Canary is not part of the series however, the characters were brought into Arm Candy to help out.

Andrea and I are not responsible for wet clothing that you the reader might end up wearing as a result of uncontrollable laughter while reading these books. There are disclaimers in the book to that effect. We just write the stories we are not responsible for  anything that our characters do or cause.

These are great little reads- They are fun and they are entertaining. Arm Candy will be out later this year so you have time to read the others before the release. All of these books are on kindle and nook. They can be purchased on Amazon and Lulu and you can buy direct from me.

So what are you waiting for go have some fun read comedy.
