Finding Home

December 11, 2012

I have a confession to make. My family and I love watching British romance movies. I can not count the number of times we’ve watched Pride and Prejudice. And most the time, we watch the “real version”. And by the “real version” I mean the A&E six-hour version.

 

Whenever we go anywhere where the people have Netflix, I mean whenever we go somewhere to stay for a few days, British drama is always the category we search for… And I absolutely love Downton Abbey. I can hardly wait for the new season to start.

 

I wrote wrote all that to say… I am reviewing yet another book by Marianne Evans. “Finding Home” is yet a British love story that I absolutely loved..

 

lexi spent some of her happiest school days abroad, and still keeps in close contact with Vannie Colby and her twin brother, Peter. When her fiance breaks their engagement, a trip to England sounds like just the thing she needs to give her heart time to heal. But little does she know…

 

Peter has always kept in touch with Alexa, but having her back in London makes the other women he’s dated pale in comparison. But how can he make her see that they could be so much more than friends?

 

This is an excellent book! I loved it. You can find this book on Amazon.

 

I am going to end with another confession. Things look crazy between now and the end of the year. We are going here and there and everywhere.. I hope things get more normal after the holidays.

Operation Breathless

December 3, 2012

It is Monday, and for once I’m making progress on several different things. That being the case, I figured I’d write a review of the book I read last week. I have at least two more I need to read and review, so I’d best get started. The book is called “Operation Breathless” by Marianne Evans. And as always, the book is available at Amazon or White Rose Publishing.

 

There are never really easy relationships. When you are trying to help people overcome their problems, things can get even more complicated and heartbreaking. That is what Susanna Daniels learns as she runs a rehab center. Troubled teens do not usually get on the straight and narrow and never look back.

 

Gabe Pertti, brother of Pia Peretti in “Jewels for the Kingdom”, walks into Susanna’s life just when she needs a friend. Gabe is a cop who is on leave because of trouble of his own. Volunteering at Susanna’s center seems like an excellent way to spend his leave. The two of them start seeing a lot of each other, both on the job and off.

 

The trouble is that Gabe needs to return to his job after his month of leave. How can Susanna let herself fall for this wonderful man? Then again, how can she not?

 

I read this book in one afternoon, enjoying it thoroughly. r

I give up! It’s Saturday, and I know I still need to write my second blog post of the week. I should have some book reviews to write next week. I’m also trying to get into some disability forums to try to get to know other disabled people. I think this could get interesting. Hopefully I will meet some people this time and make some interesting friends. I’ve tried this before. But somehow I join and then nothing really happens. I hope to change that this time. I’m not 100% of how to do that.

 

I think part of the problem is that I’m pretty busy with my family, especially lately. We’re gone a lot. And when we are home, there are movies everyone wants to see, and things like that. I enjoy the trips, but being home is nice as well. And I love movies. I’m just trying to get some balance in my life. Pray with me on this. rx
