What I Read Last Week

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I’ve had the last 5 days off and let me tell you I loved every minute of it. I love my job but it’s always wonderful to have time off. 

Today is a big day in Tracyland. My oldest daughter is 16 today! I can’t believe it! The time flies, doesn’t it? Well she’s a beautiful girl and I love her to pieces and I wish her a very happy birthday! Her boyfriend is taking her to get her nails done and then we’ll be going shopping later (as she requested) for clothes and a new purse. I think it will be a great day! Here she is over the past few years - what a change!

Ok, on to what I read last week:

I started off the week with Let It Be Me by Bella Andre. This was Ryan’s book and told us about him and his high school best friend who he’s always had a thing for. He doesn’t want to ruin their friendship so doesn’t make a move. She feels the same way but makes no move either. It’s a good story and I loved reading it. I’ll post my review this week of this one. 4 out of 5

Next up was The Wedding Favor by Cara Connelly. This is a new author and this is her first full length novel, if I’m not mistaken. The story is about two people who really don’t like each other. They end up at the same wedding and as he doesn’t want to ruin his friends wedding by brawling with the woman he asks her to act like they’d never met. It was another great story! I’ll post my review of this one this week as well. 4 out of 5

Guilty as Sin by Jami Alden was a contemporary romantic suspense novel about a woman who works as an advocate for missing children. She got into this because her brother was kidnapped and murdered when she was just 16 and was supposed to be watching him. Now she’s back in the town where it all happened and is helping a family try to find their missing 14 year old daughter. While there she runs into her old love (the guy she was with instead of watching her brother) and the sparks fly once again. There’s a lot going on in the book but it was a good one. I do wish that there had been less romance during the search for the child as it kind of took to focus off of that part of the story but still a good book. 3.5 out of 5 (read for Book Binge)

Last for the week was Everybody’s Got A Story by Heather Wardell. The book follows Alexa who was assaulted by her longtime boyfriend. It’s been 2 years but after his trial she realizes that she hasn’t been living at all. She moves to Toronto to start again and tries to get a life and friends without everyone knowing what happened to her. This was a very emotional book but very well done. 4 out of 5 (read for Book Binge)
