Now that I am back to work and moving around, I am taking longer reading my books. However, I have found reading to be very relaxing... therefore I plan on continuing as much as possible.
I just finished a book I started during vacation.
SMALL TOWN CHRISTMAS by Debbie Macomber (a two in one book)
~"Promise, Texas, is a good place to live with the person you love. When rancher Cal Patterson and his wife, Jane--better known as Dr. Texas -- face a threat to their marriage, she leaves Promise, the town that's become her home as much as his. Will Jane be back by Christmas? Because, for both of them, the greatest gift of all would be her RETURN TO PROMISE." This was a good read. There is the sadness of her father being sick and dying, along with another woman trying to destroy the marriage. It also focuses on their pride and how that almost caused the marriage to end.
~"Gold River, Alaska, isn't your average town. After being jilted by her fiance`, Caroline Myers ends up their -- thanks to her matchmaking aunts, who send her on what appears to be an autumn vacation. Not surprisingly, they have something different in mind. Something that involves spending a snowy Christmas in handsome Paul Trevor's home -- as his MAIL-ORDER-BRIDE." I found this one to be comical. We have this girl who is totally oblivious to her aunt scheming, until she has drunkenly gotten married. She continues to get her self into trouble, while trying to escape. I actually found Paul to be very controlling most of the time and was amazed that she would put up with it. Enjoyed this too!
*I read an article this past week that suggested donating books to homeless shelters. I plan on calling Open Arms Shelter, for women, and seeing if they would be interested in the books I have read.
