Happy Friday, bookish friends! I don’t know about y’all but things are starting to get busy here. Thanksgiving is less than a week away and families will be gathering which makes the next few days “clean your house like crazy” weekend. It’s an unofficial holiday which I just created and will be observing begrudgingly because cleaning your house with kids is like brushing your teeth while eating Oreos.
It’s an unofficial holiday which I just created and will be observing begrudgingly because (when you have kids) cleaning your house is like brushing your teeth while eating Oreos. So, because I care about your mental well being, I’m pointing you to a sweet little novella you can read while vacuuming or wiping the baseboards (LOL, I’m making myself laugh! Who wipes baseboards when there’s cookies to

ahhhhhh it’s KILLING me that I haven’t read this yet!! Argh.
With your reading speed you can probably knock it out in 10 min, Carrie ????
I feel the same way about Finders Keepers!!! 😀
I will be reading this one soon!! Cannot wait!
My first line:
Cactus Creek, Texas
Saturday, March 31, 1888
“You’d think after all this time I’d be over him.”
Cactus Creek Challenge by Erica Vetsch
I need to read it, too! Right now I’m reading Finding Margo, and the first line is, “In the heat of the summer, under a dark sky of a moonless night, three Amish children disappeared from their bed, never to be seen again.
Finding Margo is sneaking up on my list too!!! I’m going to have to lock myself in a room!
DAKOTA TERRITORY/IDAHO TERRITORY BORDER
Matt Tucker could take people for only so long and then he had to get up in the mountains, all the way up where he was more likely to run into a golden eagle than a man. – Now & Forever (Wild At Heart Book 2) by Mary Connealy
Mary Connealy gets me. I completely understand that feeling (except the mountain part, don’t have many of those in the midwest)! Looking forward to reading that one for sure!
I love the title to this book! 🙂
It’s a sweet story!
“Miss Arabella Beckett had always been proud of the fact she’d never ended up in jail. She could no longer make that claim.” From A Most Peculiar Circumstance by Jen Turano
Hi Becky! That book is on my shelf! Oh boy, I love Jen Turano’s books!
I have this book on my kindle. My first line comes from The Wedding Shop by Rachel Hauck
April 1930 Heart’s Bend, Tennessee
The morning began like every other weekday, with Cora making her way up the back walk to the shop, unlocking the door and clicking on the lights.
That series is just wonderful, isn’t it!
We had a dusting earlier this week…But it melted before noon. Hoping we get more soon!!!! My first line: “Pine Creek, Washington, 1891 – Killing Edward Stevens was beyond her proper ways.” From One Plus One Equals Trouble by Sondra Kraak
I have that one on my Kindle, sounds really intriguing! 😀
I am reading “Deep Shadows” with a beautiful cover and exciting storyline. It starts out with, ‘ Shelby Sparks couldn’t breathe.”
Oh, that does have a pretty cover and I’ve read some great reviews for it too!
