5 REASONS NOT TO MISS - THEN CAME YOU by Jill Shalvis ~ I adore this series.

RISKY BUSINESS by Amy Andrews ~ laughs, heart and hotness


Finished last week:

DANCING ON KNIVES by Kate Forsyth 

THORNWOOD HOUSE by Anna Romer (audiobook) ~ atmospheric 


This Week's Reading List: 

THE GOLDEN WIDOWS by Isolde Martyn ~ 10% in but good so far

CODE NAME VERITY by Elizabeth Wein (audiobook) ~ 50% done, it's great

THE HOUSE ON MERMAID POINT by Wendy Wax (Beach Road #3)


Reviews Coming:

TRAPPED AT THE ALTAR by Jane Feather ~ guest review by Karen tonight

MAYBE SOMEDAY by Colleen Hoover ~ loved it!!

THE COLLECTOR by Nora Roberts (audiobook) ~ not up there with The Witness. A bit predictable and implausible but still enjoyable, good narration by Jenna Whalen. 

CORDUROY LOST AND FOUND by B.G. Hennessy ~ my boys loved Corduroy when they were little and I still love this intrepid little bear. 


  1. What a precious picture of your dad and your granddaughter!

    The Roaring Twenties birthday party sounds like fun. Love the costumes! I am considering that for the theme of my next murder mystery party.

    I am definitely planning to read the Jill Shalvis book and I am glad you are enjoying Code Name Verity. I absolutely love the cover of The House at Mermaid Point. It looks like my idea of paradise :)

  2. Love the pics. Dancing is great exercise - you sure look the part. I have Wendy Wax's book sitting on my actual TBR shelf, but may be a little while before I get to it. I've read one Jane Feather book, was a little 'hot' for me, must have a look at Karen's review when it posts. Have a great week.

  3. So sweet to see your dad holding the little baby! And you make a convincing flapper gal!
    I am looking forward to the Wendy Wax series, hopefully soon.
    Have a great week.

  4. I love your photos! And congratulations on the beautiful new addition to your family.

  5. Love your costumes! Anna Romer has another book coming out in October, I'm looking forward to it.

    Have a great reading week,

  6. That picture of the great grandfather with his great granddaughter is adorable! It's great when generations can meet! I've heard of 'Code Nae Verity' but I can't quite remember where or when! I hope you enjoy all of your upcoming reads! Great bunch of books :) Thanks for sharing
