The widowed cowboy may be kicking up some dust with his former in-laws, but he's all warmth and tenderness when it comes to Natalie and her infant daughter...

    Love Unfinished by Darian Wilk - While the reviews on Amazon are split on this book, I REALLY enjoyed it! Quick read, interesting plot, and a tragic buy sweet love story. Recommended! (From Amazon - Soul mates from the past leave their love unfinished when a tragic accident ends their lives on their wedding day. Yet they are destined to meet again to fulfill that love in new incarnations, leading vastly different lives...)

    Married By Mistake by Abby Gaines - Quick read - finished in one day of beach sitting. Not bad for a free Kindle download. (From Amazon: Do not adjust your set. That really was Casey Greene being jilted by her fiancé on live TV! And that really was Memphis's most eligible bachelor who stepped in to marry her instead. Millionaire businessman Adam Carmichael wanted only to help Casey save face. He isn't prepared for the news that their "fake" wedding is legal and binding...)

    Salem Falls by Jodi Piccoult - I liked this one a lot! A mysterious stranger shows up in the town of Salem Falls and a modern day witch hunt of sorts unravels. A group of young girls accuse him of horrific crimes that even the DNA evidence appears to back up.

    The Pact by Jodi Picoult - Just finished this one last night... REALLY GOOD. Popular high-school swimming star Chris Harte and talented artist Em Gold bonded as infants; their parents have been next-door neighbors and best friends for 18 years. When they fall in love, everyone is ecstatic. Everyone, it turns out, except for Em...

    Fifty Shades Trilogy - Not much to say here other than I read these books to see what the hype was about. And I got them for free from a friend - I doubt I would have paid for them. I don't get the sensationalism with the books - they are poorly written with a lackluster plot line that improves slightly as the trilogy continues. That's all I got.

    The First Gardener - Jeremiah Williams has been tending the gardens of the Tennessee governor’s mansion for over twenty-five years. And like most first families who have come and gone, this one has stolen his heart. Mackenzie and her husband, Governor Gray London, have struggled for ten years to have a child and are now enjoying a sweet season of life—anticipating the coming reelection and sending their precious daughter, Maddie, off to kindergarten—when a tragedy tears their world apart.

    The Last Romanov - She was an orphan, ushered into the royal palace on the prayers of her majestry. Yet, decades later, her time spent in the embrace of the Romanovs haunts her still. Is she responsible for those murderous events that changed everything? If only she can find the heir, maybe she can put together the broken pieces of her own past-maybe she can hold on to the love she found.

    Absolutely LOVED (LOVED!!) this book!! Brilliant!! Love story, tragic, beautiful, thoughtful... set against a dramatic backdrop of World War II. If you LIKE Nicholas Sparks books, I really think you'll LOVE this one!

    I have enjoyed reading the Bloggess's (Jenny Lawson) blog for the last year or so, and I figured her book would be a fun one to read. I liked the book - there were some extremely funny stories in it. On the flip side, the book was written in the same format as her blog - long, wordy and like one big run-on sentence. It can be a lot to digest - I found myself having to read the book in small segments. Some of the book repeats stories already on her blog, so the book is not all new material.

    Quick, fun read. I didn't think the characters were quite as developed as maybe they could have been, but overall a good story.

    Quick, fun read! Finished this in less than 2 days! Very Nicholas Sparks in style - but lacks that gut-wrenching-tragedy quality. ;)

    Just finished this one! I have to say - I really liked it. It had a good ending - and not the typical Nicholas-Sparks-Makes-Me-Feel-Suicidal fashion. :) Quick read!

    From Amazon: It is late June in Michigan's gold coast resort area. The summer residents are settling in for the season and the tourists are beginning to flood the highways and beaches. But the idyllic vision of a summer at the shore is suddenly shattered by a gangland-style shooting. This murder is quickly followed by the deaths of three more summer residents, each taking place under suspicious circumstances...

    Your basic "whodunnit." Grabbed this for free (Kindle version) with my Amazon Prime membership. From Amazon: Charlene’s first novel has just been published and she couldn’t be happier. Unfortunately, being a published author isn’t quite as lucrative as she had hoped. She needs a day job that will give her time to finish her second novel before the money from the first one runs out. Managing a small RV park on the Mississippi Gulf Coast seems like the perfect gig. It’s close to the beach, the rent is paid, and the job demands are minimal. Things seem to be working out just great until the murders start. Who is killing people at the Happy Times RV Park? Charlene intends to find out, with the help of a senior citizen ex-madam, a fugitive from the 60s, and a good looking cop with a shady past.

    I love history - and the human interest aspect is what draws me in the most. This book is a true story, written by Eric Lamet. When Eric (who was Jewish) was 7 years old, the Nazis invaded Vienna and he had to flee the country with his parents. This story is his memoir of the years he and his mother were on the run from the Hitler and Mussolini regime. I found this book to be powerful and extremely touching.

    I simply could not put this book down. Mimi Alford was a 19 year old summer intern at the White House during JFK's presidency. In this book she tells her candid story of what resulted in a year+ long affair with the President. This book offered an inside look at the "Camelot" era and all that entailed.

    Alright, I love Betty. Love, love, LOVE her. So I feel a little guilty saying this, but I was a little disappointed in this book. While it gave a nice summary of many of her life experiences and had some fun pictures to look at, I expected it to be a little funnier. It does move quick though - I read this in one night!

    This is the third and final book in The Hunger Games trilogy. I ended up reading all three of these books within the same week - which is some sort of miracle for me b/c I find it so hard to make the time to read these days. Though I was sad when this book ended and the adventures were over, I was very satisfied with the epilogue!
