Happy Easter

Hi Everyone,

I hope you all have had a nice Easter. If you have been a long-time follower, you know the past four Easters have been hard on my family. My goal this year, was to break the cycle. I just wanted a peaceful weekend, with no hospitals, and no funerals. I was at first determined to avoid this holiday completely, but instead I chose to embrace it. Jagger has had us a bit concerned this weekend, with his paw, but hopefully the rest will allow him to heal. Thankfully, us humans were able to work (a first for me in several years!) and then spend time together enjoying the cool air. I am beyond grateful.

I am finishing up The Vanishing Man tonight. I have really enjoyed this new-to-me author. Have you ever picked a random book and realized it was a prequel to long series? Looks like there’s 12 more mysteries to solve with Detective Lenox! My review will be posted next week.

What are you reading during this holiday weekend?

Forgotten Book Challenge Friday

Hi Everyone,

So the negative side of being up for 24 hours straight, is obviously the lack of sleep. The wonderful side of not sleeping: More Reading Time!!! In the early morning two days ago, I scrolled through my ebooks and discovered an Alafair Burke book that was a free download over five years ago. I had not read anything by this author, but I have heard numerous great things about the books she wrote with Mary Higgins Clark. So, I decided to give it a try. I quickly read the first 80 pages, and was hooked. Throughout the early morning hours today, I devoured the last 270 some pages. I am now on the hunt for her other books!

Have you discovered a buried ebook treasure, lately?
