Christmas in July and Hallmark Romance!

A Down Home ChristmasA Down Home Christmas by Liz Talley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
<
This lighthearted romance by Liz Talley is set in Charming Mississippi during the holiday season. Kris Tabeau is a Country Singer having a bit of mental block writing his songs. He decides he will visit his Aunt Tansy for the holidays and convince her to sell her farm and head on to Texas for some relaxation and to finally write more music. However, Tansy is a strong willed woman and has her own plans to enlist the help of her neighbor Tory Odom a local teacher. Tansy thinks that maybe Tory can make him see how special life on the farm is especially during the holidays.
Kris finds himself volunteering at the local children's concert and soon he and Tory are seeing more of each other. This is a sweet, funny romance that will give you a lot of enjoyment during the Christmas Season or anytime of year. I enjoy reading the Hallmark Romance Ebooks and following it up by watching it presented on the Hallmark Channel.
There are also wonderful recipes included in each book, this
book includes a delightful Jingle Bell Fruitcake Cookie recipe.

Book 42 for the year!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



From the New York Times-bestselling author comes a pulse-pounding domestic thriller about a group of friends who have been bound for twenty years by a single secret—and will now be undone by it. Someone Knows is an emotional exploration of friendship and family, as well as a psychological exploration of guilt and memory.

Twenty years ago, in an upscale suburb of Philadelphia, four teenagers spent a summer as closest friends: drinking, sharing secrets, testing boundaries. When a new boy looked to join them, they decided to pull a prank on him, convincing him to play Russian roulette as an initiation into their group. They secretly planned to leave the gun unloaded—but what happened next would change each of them forever.

Now three of the four reunite for the first time since that horrible summer. The guilt—and the lingering question about who loaded the gun—drove them apart. But after one of the group apparently commits suicide with a gun, their old secrets come roaring back. One of them is going to figure out if the new suicide is what it seems, and if it connects to the events of that long-ago summer. Someone knows exactly what happened—but who? And how far will they go to keep their secrets buried?

Taken from Goodreads page.

I am a couple books ahead of schedule this year on my Goodreads Challenge. This book kept me up late into the night.  Lisa Scottoline never fails to disappoint me.

Love At The Shore by Teri Wilson

Love At The ShoreLove At The Shore by Teri Wilson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A clean, sweet romance by a new to me author, Teri Wilson. Divorced Mom Jenna is supposed to be on a holiday on the beautiful Tybee Island with her two young kids and finishing her second book in a YA series. However, she finds herself at a beach condo with a very close next door neighbor, Lucas. She feels that Lucas is pretty much a beach bum surfer with no personal goals or plans. Jenna is not happy about the prospect of having him so near during her family vacation. She has a manuscript deadline and he has a very active dog Tank and a very busy social life. She has kids to take care of and his only worries are when the next volley ball game starts. The chemistry starts out slow between the two because of how different their personalities are but it grows as she see's how caring he is with her children. Will she decide to let go a little and try doing something for herself? I really enjoyed this story because of the lovable characters and especially thought it had the perfect ending. I will be looking forward to reading more novels by Wilson and I cannot wait to see the Hallmark version of this story.
