Book Tour: The Boots Rain (Rainbow's End Series #1) by Kelly Anne Manuel with a giveaway and my review



The Boots Rain

by Kelly Anne Manuel's

Children's Book

Date Published: 08/01/2022

Publisher: Balboa Press, a division of Hay House, Inc.


"The Boots Rain" was born as a poem and remains so in this newly minted Book One of Kelly Anne Manuel's Rainbow's End Series.

In this story the Child is invited on a journey to experience an entirely new event that the narrator is so eager to share. The narrator describes this fictitious occurrence with such wonder, amazement and vigor, that the Child will naturally join in for the fun.

"The Boots Rain" offers a standing invitation to the Child. Journey to the tail of a rainbow's end and see what fantastical adventures await. In "The Boots Rain" the Child will experience a fun and unique way to look at rain in a different light.

The story is meant to be a challenge to the regular idea of rain boots and the author hopes to spark curiosity and discussion. The simple words take on new meaning as the illustrations pair perfectly with their presentation.

The illustrations lead the way to an adventure where considering a different approach to a common event in nature is expected. The Child's imagination will be ignited with possibilities as all manner of images leap off the page. Children are naturally able to imagine events that are characteristic of a playful youth.

Why not join the narrator on a discovery mission to find out exactly what a Boots Rain is? In this story the author invites the Child to actively engage in flexing their imagination muscle while visually stimulated with color, rainbows, and even a unicorn. It is in Early Childhood that futures are being constructed.

"The Boots Rain" is a tool in a Caregiver's toolbox to assist with that healthy formation. The idea that every boot that falls in the Boots Rain is unique, individual and one of a kind, is an important message that the author wants to relay.

The Child who reads this book will be rewarded with a fantastical insight to what magical events occur at the tail of a rainbow's end.

Everything changed one night in Lake Bittersweet…

Successful model Bliss Gault is known for her smile and her sunshiny attitude. The youngest child of rock legend Steven Gault, everyone sees her as the flaky, flighty member of the family. And why wouldn’t they, when she has a habit of getting in and out of messes by the skin of her teeth? But when she returns to Lake Bittersweet for her sister’s wedding with an international mess in tow…this time, she might be in over her head.

FBI Agent Earl Granger is in Minnesota to help an old Army buddy, using “head of security” for Bliss Gault as his cover. Within seconds of meeting her, the stunning blond is making him crazy with her whimsy and her sage-burning. He’s a gruff, fact-focused professional. There’s no way he’s letting her distract him from his real purpose—discovering the identity of his father. She can save the smiles and seduction act for someone else.

But fate has something very different in store for these two total opposites. From international mayhem to a passion they never saw coming…some seductions are impossible to resist.

He was her mortal enemy.
And…he’d decided she was his.

She loved being a doctor.
She didn’t love Connor Jackson.

Picking. Poking. Prodding. The man had never met a button he didn’t like to push. And since Raven had never met a fight that she didn’t see through to the end, when she and Connor were together…

Fireworks.

Then she got hurt—really hurt—and Connor decided that she needed looking after.

And that was when she discovered that maybe what she felt for Connor wasn’t hate at all.

Being the single guardian for my fifteen-year-old cousin isn’t as easy as you’d think, especially when she runs away to find the dad, who has no idea she exists.

Lysander Spearman is broody, protective, and not at all who I should be falling for. 


We’re nothing alike. 


He’s got money in the bank, and I’m trying to make ends meet.


He’s much too old for me, and I hate his guts.


He’s quiet, and I can’t keep my mouth shut.


But when he shows up for his daughter. 

When I see him care. 

When he takes charge—I can’t stop my heart from flipping.

He’s offering me security that I’ve never dared to dream about. 

When his lips touch mine, I know I’m done for.

I just hope he doesn’t break our hearts.


This is a highly emotional book that will take you on a rollercoaster ride of forbidden love, family drama, and the power of true love.

One night we almost crossed that line. 

One night I almost got everything I wanted.


Now he’s moved back to our small town—a hot single dad with a daughter.

But I have finally moved on. I have a boyfriend who I actually like.

I let Benedict go—Didn’t I?


Hot, arrogant, confident Dr. Benedict Farrow is out of my life.

At least, I think he is.

But when he makes me laugh, I wonder if I ever got over him.

There’s no one who knows me better than him.

How can someone I loved so much cause me so much pain now?

If we went there again, it would ruin everything.
