Happy May Everyone!

I hope everyone had a good week! Keeping my fingers crossed that spring will finally come!

We have a birthday party to go to on Saturday and Sunday I'm going shopping with a friend!

I had a really slow week in reading I read one book After the Scandal by Elizabeth Essex....this book just didn't do it for me. I'm going to start the new Valerie Bowman book today and after that I'm going to read the new M L Buchman book. I need to buy it from Discover Love (Sourcebooks today).

Any plans this weekend? What are you reading?

Enjoy your weekend everyone!

Hi everyone. Prayers going out to all our friends in the disaster areas. This weather is really scaring me. I hope the whole summer isn't like this. It is May already and I can't believe it. Also, I will be 68 this month... where did the years go??

A pretty relaxing weekend coming up (fingers crossed nothing changes that.) I have my nephew's 1st Holy Communion party on Sunday and that is about it. This nephew is the child my brothers girlfriend had when he was 57. Well, things have turned out better than I expected. The girlfriend is a fantastic mother and is raising my nephew really well. My brother is the most negative person in the world and I hope that trait isn't passed down.

I am just finishing up The Wife, The Maid, and The Mistress. I have a feeling I know where the body is buried. It is fiction based on a true story. A judge missing during corrupt times in the 30's. I just got the new Kevin O'Brien suspense and that is what I will probably read next.

Have a great weekend and try to stay dry.

Happy weekend all!

I am working from home today, yay! So I thought I would take a minute and say hi. Last week I read all three Walking Plague books by JR Rain and Elizabeth Basque. They were not too crazy scary or gory, and they were very fast reads.

Right now I'm reading There All Along, which is an anthology with Lauren Dane and Megan Hart.

Not much in the way of plans this weekend. I was sick much of the week. We were supposed to go to Galveston for the weekend but cancelled since no one was feeling up to it. I plan to hang out and just relax. School only has a few more weeks, and then Robert finally graduates. :D :D

He's decided to go to Texas State in San Marcos, Texas, which is very close to Austin. He doesn't know yet if he wants to stay there his whole time or if he'll try to transfer to University of Texas after the first or second year. But I am happy he's ready to head to college after all the drama of the last 2 years. Oh and yes, that means he's decided he is NOT going to University of Houston at CL to live near HER. Thank the Lord!!! And when we were discussing some of the things he's wanted to do in the past, like going to Costa Rica...well, he started laughing and saying, come on Mom, I'm just a kid. I'm going to say and do dumb things. :roll:

Have a great weekend ladies!

Happy birthday Paulette! You're a young, awesome 68!! 8) 8)

Happy May Birthday Paulette! As for where the years have gone, I just dunno! This weekend is my 27th wedding anniversary. Looking back at the wedding pics and the young girl I was...I wonder what the 'blankety blank' happened!
I am currently reading Annette Blair, Unmistakable Rogue, the third in her Rogue series.
Last week I finished reading To Love a Thief, by Julie Ann Long, a really good read.
Have a great weekend everyone.

When I was working many years ago, my department, General Advertising, had a nasty sense of humor. All the men wore white carnations in their lapels on May 1 (people still wore suits to work back then) and whispered "Hurrah, Hurrah, the month of May and screwing in the grass begins today". It would probably be considered sexual discrimination these days but we had a big laugh about it and as far as I know, no screwing actually happened. So happy May to everyone.

Tomorrow is Derby Day and my son is having a party. We'll be having mint juleps and watching the race. I'm bringing a derby pie which is scrumptious. We'll probably leave right after the race, particularly if I have a mint julep.

I'm reading The Collector by Nora Roberts and unless it ends badly, this is one of her best. I love the characters, the storyline, everything about this book. After that I'll start Insurgent since I just downloaded it from the library. I have a Heather Graham book from the library that will probably go back since I don't have time to read it.

The only other thing I have to do this weekend is shave my cat -- she's so full of knots she looks like she's wearing a toupee! Have a great weekend everyone.

Just finished reading When We Met by Susan Mallery, her most recent Fool's Gold book, it's a 5star for me. Also read Harbor of Lies by Debra Burroughs last night, another 5 star rating for a romantic suspense with a twist you will never anticipate (it helps if you have read the previous books in this series).

I'm reading What the Duke Desires by one of my favorite historical authors Sabrina Jeffries.

Tomorrow is my mystery dinner with a group. My character is a fan of horse racing so I am going to research and find the horse that won the 1947 Kentucky Derby.

Why 1947? That wasn't a particularly good Derby. Now, 1948, won by the great Citation who went on to win the Triple Crown -- that was an interesting year.

Happy and healthy May to everyone.
I am reading One Foot in the Gravy- a Deadly Deli mystery, #2 in the series. So far, it isn't as good as #i-A Brisket A Casket but I like the series characters and it's a light, cozy which I am in the mood for right now.
I am also reading a Harl medical romance- Flirting with the Socialite Doc by Melanie Milburne, set in the bush in Australia. I'm loving this book.

Have fun with the mystery dinner. I can't wait to hear about it. It would be fun to throw in some other facts about 1947... if the people remember things from that year, like movies, stars, and things like that.

Hello everyone! Happy Spring!

I am reading WHY EARLS FALL IN LOVE by Manda Collins. It is a good book and I am enjoying it.


I ended up giving THREE WEEKS WITH LADY X a B+ rating. The second half got a little off track. Our heroine got into the TSTL mode and made some bad decisions. Plus she made the hero grovel a little too much IMO.

It is getting hot,hot, hot here in Georgia. Temps in the high 80's all next week. :oops:

1947 was the year picked by the hostess and author. She wrote the mystery and is currently in a writing competition for Harlequin. They were impressed that I actually researched this.
