It’s beginning to look a lot like love . . .
Bestselling author Debbie Mason is back with another wonderful addition to her Christmas, Colorado series. Happy Ever After in Christmas, the seventh book in the series, focuses on workaholic deputy Jill Flaherty. As her thirtieth birthday approaches, Jill decides it’s time to live a little. When she walks into Sawyer Anderson’s bar in her sexiest dress, she’s not thinking that he’s her brother’s best friend or about the many women he dated during his years as a pro hockey player. All she’s thinking is that it’s finally time to confess to her longtime crush how she truly feels.
Sawyer is done being a player on and off the ice. Yet no one in the small town of Christmas seems to believe he’s ready to settle down, not Jill, and certainly not Jack, who is determined to keep Sawyer from breaking his little sister’s heart. But as Sawyer and Jill’s relationship heats up, can he prove that he’s her happy ever after?
As an ardent book lover, I’m always curious about how a book has been received over a period of time. It is an indication of the power of books and how they can withstand our changing society or propel change in one’s perspective.
The 1990s is my favorite decade. Not only because it was the time of “Barbie Girl” and “Spice Up Your Life,” but there were a plethora of books published that captured the attention of bookworms around the world. From a magical wizarding world to a former combat nurse turned outlander, authors created stories and characters that sucked us in from the very first page. And, they continue to enchant readers of today. Below are six books published in the 90s that are still well loved and continually growing in popularity.
Everybody’s luck runs out. This time it could be theirs…
Susan Crawford, author of the psychological thriller The Pocket Wife, does it again with her new novel, The Other Widow. With a complex cast of characters—featuring the perspectives of three strong women brought together by a tragic accident—Crawford captures the very essence of grief felt by a widow and the other woman, haunting love, and obsession.
From Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-thon to book shopping, it’s safe to say that this past weekend was one of bookish perfection.
I had so much fun during the read-a-thon. I was providing updates on this blog throughout the challenge. If you weren’t able to follow them, you can check them out [here]. I cannot wait for the next read-a-thon, which is on October 22, 2016.
As Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-thon makes its way into the 19th hour, unhappily I shall be going to sleep. It’s 2:15 AM where I live. Again, safe to say that it’s WAY past my bedtime!
That said, it’s been a wonderful, bookish adventure. This read-a-thon has proved to be a successful one. I read three books (over 500 pages), read for 19 hours (with a couple breaks), learned new things, and connected with like-minded individuals.
A huge thank you to the rock stars behind this event. I cannot wait for the next read-a-thon, which is on October 22, 2016. Also, thank you to those of you that followed my updates. I hope you enjoyed them.
That’s all folks. Have a great morning/night!
