I’m sorry that I missed the last couple of weeks but I’m trying to get back on track. Now that Halloween is over and most stores bypass Thanksgiving altogether, we now have a head start in holiday shopping, especially with these great books entering the horizons. If you need some holiday gift ideas, check out these exciting new rankings:
Having long made a promise to her husband, young widow Annabel has no intentions of breaking it. What she does plan to do, though, is have a baby. Not the easiest of tasks for a woman with a deceased other half, and having explored all her options, her only choice is to take the unconventional route. Setting out to find her own donor, Annabel meets Dan. Single, fun-loving and definitely not looking for commitment, this unruly blonde, blue-eyed man seems perfect for the job.
Dan wants nothing more than to find his dream woman. But with a mother intent on sabotaging his every relationship, he can’t help but think he’s destined to remain single. Of course, he knows his mother doesn’t really want him all for herself, why else would she keep insisting he meet Maeve? Why else would she insist Dan promise to find himself a wife before she meets her maker?
Forced to negotiate matters of love, life and death, Annabel and Dan seem the answer to each other’s prayers. But will they really be able to keep the promises they made? And is having a baby really the answer?”
This was a very quick and enjoyable read. This book is all about promises, promises about the past, promises about the future. And it was just beautifully well done.
I know I am a week late and I haven’t been posting lately but I have my reasons.
I started a new job! As a librarian!
So all last month was basically doing training and learning new things, which is great but unfortunately it gives me little time to update this blog so I want to apologize for that. I know I haven’t kept up with my “Weekly Tea Discussions” but I’ll promise I’ll try to keep up with them.
I didn’t get to read that many books last month but once I’m settled in my new job, that will change:
For Princess Mia, the past five years since college graduation have been a whirlwind of activity, what with living in New York City, running her new teen community center, being madly in love, and attending royal engagements. And speaking of engagements. Mia’s gorgeous longtime boyfriend Michael managed to clear both their schedules just long enough for an exotic (and very private) Caribbean island interlude where he popped the question! Of course Mia didn’t need to consult her diary to know that her answer was a royal oui.
But now Mia has a scandal of majestic proportions to contend with: Her grandmother’s leaked “fake” wedding plans to the press that could cause even normally calm Michael to become a runaway groom. Worse, a scheming politico is trying to force Mia’s father from the throne, all because of a royal secret that could leave Genovia without a monarch. Can Mia prove to everyone—especially herself—that she’s not only ready to wed, but ready to rule as well?”
