Monday Review of Cowboy for Keeps

Once again Jody Hedlund has kept me up until I finished reading Cowboy for Keeps. What is it that makes reading (or writing) about life when it was so hard to survive? I look at the things Greta did to make money in this book and I shudder to think what would happen to me…

Monday Review of Come Back to Me

Come Back to Me by Jody Hedlund starts with some suspense and rocky family dynamics. It doesn’t take long to realize you won’t be setting this book down to do something else. It’s another book a bit different for me. I’m no fond of time travel books but it’s Jody Hedlund, I had to try…

Monday Review of Not a Sparrow Falls

Not a Sparrow Falls (Wyldhaven Book 1) by Lynnette Bonner Bonner starts out with the most impossible character I could imagine for a western adventure set in 1891. Charlotte Brindle doesn’t need to get married for financial reasons; she has her teacher’s degree. The problem comes when her parents have picked a man for her…

I’m also learning to dictate so any oddness in this post will be from that. It’s a difficult skill for me to learn to speak words instead of thinking and letting my fingers talk.…

Binge Reading The Montana Ranches

It’s been a great month for reading. Lots of rainy days and nights is a good reason to hang out in a chair with my Kindle. Except for nights when the hockey playoffs are on and then my attention goes to our local team. The St. Louis Blues. I’m not a big sports fan except…
