It's Always About The Books!

I really enjoyed this book even though the premise is one I don't normally love but it takes place in my area...so there were lots of familiar landmarks, restaurants, towns...it was so much fun to read! Abbey can't afford the $500.00 purse she just bought so even though her daughter scratched it she is on her way to Nordstrom's to return it. She trips and falls and wakes up in a situation where she is living a life much better than her own. She has a rich husband, better clothes and even a better body. What made this book so good was the humor!

Reading now...

"With sweet, heartfelt characters and a richly described setting, Halverson blends mystery and suspense into a love story of many layers, not the least of which is a declaration of love to the Alaskan wilderness and its people." - Booklist

New books!

Mongrels...a coming of age story.

Mother Knows Best...kind of a funny cozy mystery...with a pig!

Mission Hill...a legal thriller.

Dear Fang With Love...this author wrote The Girls Of Corona Del Mar...which I loved!

Wolf Hollow...a coming of age story...yep...another one. I kind of love coming of age stories...this one gets amazing reviews.

 

Off to chill and read!

Hugs,

Patty

    1. But of course I will...but I already know that they should be Mission Hill and Dera Fang With Love but did you read The Girls Of Corona Del Mar?

    2. No, I didn't read The Girls of Corona del Mar... it was on my list for a while and then I got side-tracked by shiny new books. Happens far too frequently. Wish I could read faster!

  6. I like coming of age stories. I think I am looking for my own, sometimes. These sound interesting. I will have to check them out.

  7. You have some print books!

    Isn't it fun to read a book with familiar settings in it? I see above that you got Mission Hill from your "queue." Vine? Oops, I see you mentioned right above that they all came from Vine...duh.

  8. It's exciting to read books that are set in our neighbourhood/city, isn't it? I love it too. And, 'Mongrels' sounds interesting. I am adding that to my TBR. )
