On Vacation!


When you read this, my husband and I will be on vacation in beautiful Nova Scotia. If I'm lucky enough to have wifi in any of the hotels we're staying at, I'll share some pictures with you next week.


In the meantime, I'm going to update my reading list. Last weekend my husband and I attended his family reunion. It was nice to see cousins and their children (and their children's children). Warren's mother came from a large family so the extended family is now HUGE. Anyway, a good time was had by all. It was about a nine hour drive one-way to where the reunion was being held, which gave me a lot of time to read. I finished THE LIAR by Nora Roberts (Print), MOONLIGHT OVER PARIS by Jennifer Robson (print), and IT HAPPENED ONE WEDDING by Julie James (audiobook). This brings my total books read to 16, which is certainly not as many as I'd hoped to read by this point. But considering I've written and edited (but haven't quite completed) three books in 2017, I'm not doing too bad. On the bright side, I'm on vacation for two weeks. Lots of time for reading. Hopefully I can add some new books to my list.

I enjoyed all three of these books. I haven't read a Nora Roberts book for a while, though at one time I practically inhaled them. I liked THE LIAR a lot and I liked the characters. Griffin was wonderful and sexy, and the perfect hero for Shelby. I loved the way Shelby grew from frightened and beaten-down into a confident, self-assured woman who knew what she wanted and went after it. My only issue with the book was that I could see what was going to happen almost from the beginning. Still enjoyed it though.

MOONLIGHT OVER PARIS takes place in 1924, and Jennifer Robson's research into the era makes me feel like I'm right there. It's a story of a woman chucking society's expectations and doing what makes her happy. I can't wait to read Ms. Robson's next book.

I loved IT HAPPENED ONE WEDDING. It was funny and sexy. I loved how Vaughn and Sidney began their relationship as an adversaries, slowly became friends, and then turned to lasting love. A real winner.


So I'll see you all back here next Saturday and let you know how my holiday is going. Happy September!
