Snow Days

Winter has settled in and my back yard is blanketed with crisp, white snow. No matter how lyrical that sounds, it sucks. I'd rather be watching my chipmunk friend scratch at the patio door, looking for more peanuts. Or the neon yellow finches who swoop in to the feeder and peck away at the Niger seeds. However, there is one plus to winter in Canada, the great white north. Top Gun and I tend to stay home a bit more and we snuggle under fuzzy blankets and watch our fill of reality TV - don't judge. We have real conversations and catch up on where we are, where we want to go and re-affirm our goals together. This does not mean I wouldn't trade it all in for a day skimming the blue ocean in a catamaran off the coast of Barbados. Not by any stretch of the imagination. It...

Sweet Cowboy Christmas Sweet, Texas # 3.5 by Candis Terry

Synopsis:  Mistletoe, holly, and cowboys, oh my! Christmas in Texas has never been sweeter. Years ago, Chase Morgan traded in his dusty cowboy boots for the shimmering lights of New York City and a fast track up the corporate ladder.

Return of the Bad Girl

Bad girls don't forgive. Bad girls don't forget. Bad girls don't fall in love. Caroline Willis may be known for causing trouble, but she is NOT about to become homeless. So when she learns that her perfect apartment has been double-booked—to a dangerously hot bad boy—Caroline's bad-girl reputation comes out in full force. He may be sexy as sin, but she's not afraid of him … or his panty-melting smile. Rock Canyon's got room for only one bad attitude—and Gabe Moriarty was here first. Still, starting over means playing it smart, so while sharing his new apartment is less than ideal, it's worth getting his dream business off the ground. Not to mention that it means shacking up with a sexy wild child. Caroline may be giving him the cold shoulder, but Gabe always was good at starting fires … Caroline vows to keep things professional with Gabe, but as...

Christmas at Tiffany's by Karen Swan

Christmas at Tiffany’s is an absolutely wonderful story, and even though chick-lit isn’t my genre of choice, this book had me laughing, sighing, and wishing it would never end! No, seriously… I did not want this story to end! Blurb… Three cities. Three seasons. One chance to find the life that fits. Cassie settled down too young, marrying her first serious boyfriend.

So begins a year-long trial as Cassie leaves her sheltered life in rural Scotland to stay with each of her best friends in the most glamorous cities in the world: New York, Paris and London.

At Wolf Ranch is a huge hit!

This was truly an amazing story. I was not able to put it down until the very end. The struggle that Ella and Gavin go through not only to find out why her uncle would kill her twin sister and what information she had that caused him to shoot her. Trying to hide from everyone, not trusting anyone because her uncle has so many people in his pocket she can only trust Gavin and his family to make sure she can avenge her sister. Unfortunately she soon realizes that is goes much deeper than just her sister's murder and her uncle has a lot to pay for if she can just live long enough to prove it. She just has to find the proof. Gavin decides he is going to help her and protect her even if she is a NY city girl and used to the big city. He...

Have You Met: Avon Addict Veronica Arellano

Welcome, Avon Addict Veronica Arellano. If you don’t know Veronica, the questions she answered below for us should get you started… 1) Where is the most beautiful/romantic place you’ve ever been? Hands-down: Buzios, Brazil. It’s a tiny resort town made famous by Brigitte Bardot vacationing there in the 1960s. There’s even a saucy statue of her on the town’s main drag! The beaches are beautiful, the food is amazing, the music is lovely and I swear the sunsets are the most spectacular thing I’ve ever seen. As soon as my vacation was over, I was homesick for Buzious. I just felt at home and at peace there, which made it the most romantic place on earth. 2) Favorite name for a hero or heroine. DECLAN. I can’t get enough of that name. Sophie Jordan uses it for her hero in A Good Debutante’s Guide to Ruin, and it is so...
