The delights of Spring

I love this time of year, when the weather warms up enough to sit outside, enjoy the burst of new growth, and listen to the birds sing their melody of love.

May the delights of Spring be blooming for you.

Storing Up Trouble


Storing Up Trouble by Jen Turano is a fun historical romance story.

Beatrix Waterbury is an American Heiress sent to live with her suffragette aunt due to all the trouble that she seems to get into. On her way to Chicago she finds herself in the middle of a train robbery. She escapes with Norman Nesbit, who assumes she has an unfortunate background. Beatrix is insulted by his assumptions, and lets him know how arrogant he is. This gets Norman's attention as he discovers how much he has missed in his life.

When Aunt Gladys encourages Beatrix to take a job, things get humorous and tragic. Being  thrown into the world of commerce, she sees first hand how women struggle in the world. 

I loved how Beatrix and Norman learn to like each other, after a poor start. And how Norman becomes a better person from the challenges that Beatrix is not afraid to dish out. 

This is a well written story with great dialogue.

I received a complimentary ebook copy from the publisher, through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

Moving to the porch

Warmer days has me dressing up the porch.

I am so loving our warmer weather, where we can open up the house and enjoy beautiful breezy days.

A Simple Wedding - a review

 A Simple Wedding

 What could possibly go wrong? A Simple Wedding by Leigh Duncan shows how very much could go wrong when Jenny Longley steps in for her famous cousin to plan a very simple wedding.

Keeping her cousin Kay's wedding a secret proves to be quite a challenge.  As a popular and famous actor, Kay wants to hold a small intimate wedding at Hearts Landing.The very location Jenny has dreamed about since they were kids. Jenny goes along and acts as the bride to make all the arrangements. As long as she doesn't divulge that the real bride Kay. Things go along well, until Kay decides to make last minute changes.

Nick Bell is the wedding cake baker who befriends Jenny and enchants her with his mouth watering cupcakes. Problem is, he starts to fall for her. Knowing that she is engaged to someone else leaves the plot of the drama frustrating to say the least, as Jenny begins to fall for Nick as well. What will the truth reveal?

This is a delightfully sweet romance.  Hallmark Publishing has hit the mark with this one.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher. All views expressed are my honest opinion.
