Praise for Organic Beauty With Essential Oil:

“Smart and easy recipes.  Just love this book , makes life easy.  Good recipes to follow and also healthy.  So I don’t have to waste my money buying stuff full of chemicals. I just make them myself with organic ingredients”-Shirlmore, Amazon Reviewer

“I recently opened my own massage business. What I wanted to do was offer a service where I could use organic, soothing oils and lotions that would rejuvenate and refresh my clients all while allowing their bodies to absorb essential nutrients. Sure, I found products I could buy at stores that promised the same effects for a lot more money, but I would end up losing more then I was gaining.  Then I found this book. I don’t know what I would’ve done without it. It was literally everything I was looking for. I was able to create all different types of massage oils: lemon-aloe, grape-fruit honey, the list goes on!. The best thing was that all these ingredients barely cost me anything! And I have so much fun experimenting with different ingredients! My clients love it and my business is booming! Couldn’t have done it without this.”-DJesus, Amazon Reviewer

” I’ve recently been having an issue with my body lotion and the soap I’ve been using. Every time I would get out the shower I’d itch and it was because the soap was too harsh on my skin and would remove all the natural oil from my body!  Thank god for Rebecca Totilo. The best part is that the book doesn’t just stop at teaching you how to make your own soaps or body wash, you can also make your own mouthwash (the spearmint-aloe is INCREDIBLE) and lip balm! Literally everything that author Rebecca Totilo writes about are products that leave you feeling refreshed, clean and completed renewed! Now I’m itch free and loving my yogurt walnut facial scrub and my Rosewater night cream. Greatest book ever! Kid you not!”- Charlie “Reuben”, Amazon Reviewer

” How cool! Organic Beauty With Essential Oil made me a hero. My wife, who is into natural products and essential oils, has been hounding me to move away from “unnatural” remedies. Well…imagine her surprise when I came home with this book and was able to share with her some things she didn’t know. Now she’s confiscated the book and has fallen in love with the wealth of knowledge that is contained in the pages. Rebecca has a potential best seller on her hands and for those interested in a better life this is a must read!”-Chuck Gallagher, Amazon Reviewer

“This is a wonderful book and a superb guide to essential oils. The writer was very thorough and included recipes for skin, hair, mouth, feet, hands – let me say for every part of the body. The recipes are also easy to follow and come from things that are already in the home for eg., apple cider vinegar, mint leaves and witch hazel to name a few. I am new to making cosmetics so I wanted a book that would guide me to the use of the various essential oils – this book did not disappoint! All I wanted to know about essential oils was there. I can now tell the difference between fragrance oil and pure essential oil and also how to use them for my health and skin care. This book is a classic, a must have for everyone who wants to get in the organic skin care. Beautifully written and so easy to work with. It is one of my favorites.“ -Esther, Amazon Reviewer

I have to say I am loving this book.  So far I have only been able to try a couple recipes because I don’t have all the ingredients on hand, but I love the ones I have tried.  I also find that it had a lot of just really good information.  I have had skin problems for years and just the information on which oils or herbs are best for different types of issue is such a great source of information. Of course that information is out there in other areas but this book organizes the information in a clear concise way that it is easy to find and use.

I give this book 5 out of 5 clouds and highly recommend it as a great resource.

Book Review of Into You

Book Review of Into You

Welcome to Books, Books, and More Books.  
I am pleased to share this book with you.  
Thank you for visiting and please come again.

What if you could know exactly what your friends are thinking? High school student Winter Reynolds can, but there's a catch...
She can only read people's thoughts when she's kissing them.

When a member of the track team is murdered, Winter has an opportunity to use her special ability to find the killer. Trouble is, kissing everyone on the track team isn't such a good idea when you have a new boyfriend. Talk about complications!

Should Winter persevere using her secret power to catch the murderer still in their midst, even if it means risking her relationship with her one true love?

Praise for Into You:

"From the first page, this novel is UN-PUT-DOWN-ABLE! The novel is packed with humor and heartache, romance and betrayal, life and death."- Rebecca Hamilton, Bestselling Author of The Forever Girl
"In her debut novel, Into You, Riley J Ford takes an interesting premise and turns it into one heckuva good book. The writing is sharp. The characters are well developed. The story moves along at a crisp pace.  There's a ton of humor in this book: just-plain-funny humor; dark humor; romantic humor; even tragic humor. If Ford was out to showcase how well she can master the subtle nuances between them, she can color me convinced.  But it isn't all fun and games. Sure, there's a murder to solve, but Ford's story really delves into some dark and weighty places along the way that make the murder seem somewhat tame in comparison (at least until the murder is later described). Although readers will be satisfied with the ending, Into You isn't all sunshine and lollipops, with a cute little HEA to top it off.  Into You is a well written, wonderful read that I highly recommend."Thomas Winship, Vaempires Revolution
"Riley J. Ford has crafted a novel that is impossible to put down, and almost as impossible to classify.  Is it paranormal?  Is it comedy? Is it mystery?  Is it romance?  I think it's all these things and more: it's amazing!  Winter has a strange superpower: when she kisses people, she can hear their thoughts.  At first, this looks like a fun way to get Winter to experiment with her sexuality, but when one of her friends winds up murdered at a track meet, Winter's superpower suddenly carries great responsibility: if she can kiss the killer, she can bring about justice.  But where should she start? And what if people are able to protect their thoughts from her somehow?  Winter embarks on a sometimes hilarious, often emotional quest for justice, becoming a kissing bandit as a matter of course.  This book will keep you turning the pages, hoping that Winter doesn't wind up in hot water."Jen McConnel, Weaving Words
"Full of humor. Sometimes it is the light, bubbly kind I expected from this book, but other times it is downright heart wrenching." - Crich, Amazon Reviewer
"A wonderful coming of age book that will keep you laughing up until the very last page!" - Nostalgic0409 "FictionLoverExtrordinaire", Amazon Reviewer

Imagine learning you can read people’s minds, but only if you kiss them.  Then the one person who you care about you don’t want to learn all their deep dark secrets in one swift kiss.  But you are trying to solve a murder, so a kissing booth is a good excuse to kiss a lot of people in a short period of time.  Yeah that’s going to make everything okay.

I can’t imagine being able to read people’s minds.  I have enough problems with people telling me their problems without being able to see their innermost thoughts.  Winter finds that after hearing everyone’s innermost thoughts, she also has to deal with the emotional toll of information she learns.

I give this story 4 out of 5 clouds.
