Hi everyone My name is Victoria Zumbrum, 40 years old, married 14 years with 1 son. This is my very first blog. So bear with me. I have always wanted to have my own blog. I have always loved to read. I enjoy getting lost in a good book.
I love becoming part of the story and characters. I am hoping to bring my love of books to my readers.

I love reading different genres such as paranormal, young adult, romance, romantic suspense, mystery, Christian fiction, some horror, etc. The list goes on. I started reviewing books a couple of years ago and have done reviews for different blogs and even some authors. I really have enjoyed reviewing books and I will continue to do so. If anyone is interested in me reviewing a book for them, please contact me. I still have a lot to learn regarding my own blog so bear with me. I welcome and appreciate all followers.

Payton's Pursuit by Joanne Jaytanie Blog Tour

Year Anniversary


Hosted by~
Jaytanie, Victoria Zumbrum, and Tanya Watt

On January 29,
Book Two of The
Winters Sisters Series 
Payton's Pursuit
was released.

To celebrate the
one year anniversary
we are having a
giveaway contest  for the entire

of  February!!


She wasn’t concerned about going back up to the house
alone. She walked home late and alone hundreds of times. Besides, the guys
completed all the upgrades in their security and now the campus was even more
secure than when first built. She would grab one of the carts and be home in
less than five minutes. As she finished shutting things down and readied her
desk for the next day, she realized she was the only person left in the

“Don’t be silly,” she chided herself. “Security has been
beefed up and there is absolutely not one thing to worry about.”

Still an uneasy feeling grabbed hold and wouldn’t let go.
She looked out her window to make sure a cart was available. The night was
clear, stars filled the sky, and the moon was a meager sliver. Everything took
on a sinister appearance. There were no carts sitting under the streetlight,
where they were supposed to be. She decided to contact the front gate and make
sure there would be cart and a security guard out front when she wanted to

She pressed the intercom button to the gate and let it ring
for a bit. She waited, and pressed the button again.


She pulled the file out of her desk drawer to see who was
on duty. Frank, the shift boss, was on. He was one of the first people they
hired when they started to staff the campus and one of their most conscientious
employees. Payton sat back in her chair.

I’m being silly. I’m sure it’s been a busy night, and Frank
has probably stepped away to get a cup of coffee.

She grabbed her purse out of her desk drawer,
double-checked to verify her cell phone was in her jacket pocket, and left for
the main gate to get a cart. The gate sat directly across the parking lot and
the entire area was well lit with streetlights. An ominous dread slithered down
the back of Payton’s neck. Was there someone else in the vicinity? She scanned
the entire area. No one.

“These blasted psychic abilities,” she mumbled.

She thought she had more control over them. She needed to
heed Victory’s advice and work on honing her skill on a daily basis.

As she approached the gate, she noticed there appeared to
be no one in the security shack. Not unusual, this often happened at night.
When it was quiet and the gate locked, instead of sitting in the tiny shack,
the guards would stay in the security office across the street from the shack.
There were lights on in the office, a safe bet Frank was there. She pictured a
cup of coffee in his hand as he watched his favorite talk show.

Payton veered toward the office building, she gave one last
backward glance at the shack. She stopped in midstride. Something seemed off,
and she noticed the door ajar. The door was equipped with an automatic
close-and-lock feature. The only way for the door to be left open was if
someone stood in the doorway or something prohibited the door from closing.

She walked up to the shack and reached out to take the
doorknob. Her eyes tracked down the length of the door, until she saw what kept
the door from closing. There was a black shoe wedged in the doorway. She stared
at the shoe, her mind not able to register what she saw. Her eyes traveled from
the shoe, to the dark blue pant leg, to the matching shirt…Payton gasped.

There lay Frank, crumpled across the floor, a dark wet spot
on the left side of his chest. She reached into her jacket pocket, and fumbled
for her phone. She finally pulled the phone out, and pressed the power button,
as she felt the strangest prick at the side of her neck. She turned to her
left, where she noticed movement. Her head started to spin and her eyes
blurred. She caught a blurry image of a man right before she hit the ground.
