A Vintage Death by Mary Ellen Hughes- Great Escapes Tour

 
About the book 
As the new music box store owner and resident of Keepsake Cove, a quaint town full of collectible shops on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, Callie Reed is eager to get more involved in her community. She volunteers to plan the Fall street decorations and welcome a visiting author who’s come for a special book signing. But the celebratory mood is cut short when the local B&B owner is found dead, killed by a pair of vintage scissors.
Suspicion is cast on the victim’s estranged wife, Dorothy, who owns Keepsake Cove’s vintage sewing shop. Callie is sure Dorothy is innocent, and the visiting author agrees. Together, they begin their own investigation, only to discover that many people in Keepsake Cove have secrets. Secrets that are worth killing to keep quiet.

And I thought
A fun and cozy read that will draw you in making you wish you were there.  Well at least until there's another murder in town and hidden secrets are exposed.  
Is this a cozy little town or not?  
The read will journey along with Callie as she tries to settle in and 
enjoy her inheritance and become a member of this sweet and cozy town.  But murder follows murder and we are once again on a twisty ride to discover the truth and clear the name of a sweet woman.  
Mary Ellen Hughes in this 2nd installment of the A keepsake Cove
Mysteries gives us charming characters and a good 'ole mystery that will have you turning the pages to figure it out.   
Each book is written as a stand alone so you can jump in anywhere along the way.  But beware you might get hooked. 


I received a complimentary copy.

Book Spotlight-Wreath Between The LInes by Daryl Wood Gerber



About the book 
The Agatha Award–winning author of Pressing the Issue returns to the Cookbook Nook, where Jenna Hart is busy decking the halls and ducking a killer . . .
The holidays are Jenna Hart’s favorite time of year, but just as she’s decorating the Cookbook Nook for all the festive events, her imperious older sister makes a surprise visit, anxious that her husband’s been more naughty than nice. To make matters worse, her father’s good friend Jake shows up on her doorstep with a frantic report that his friend has been murdered—trussed with Christmas lights and impaled with a tree star.
Worried that Jake was the intended victim, Jenna makes a list of suspects and checks it twice. Swapping her Santa’s hat for a sleuthing cap, she gets busy investigating Jake’s long-lost sister, his Grinch of a neighbor, and a stamp collector who covets Jake’s most treasured piece. When Jake himself is poisoned and nearly dies, Jenna knows she’ll have to do whatever it takes to corner the culprit before it’s lights out for Jake . . .
Includes tantalizing holiday recipes!

At First Glance-Contemporary Inspirational Romance-Review-Tour w/ Giveaway


AtFirstGlance 500x750 (2)




About the book 
When it comes to love and matters of the heart, she’s got a lot to learn.
​Estate planner Penny Thornton loves dusting off items others gloss over, especially since she relates to feeling tossed aside for the “bright and shiny”. When her younger sister’s approaching wedding launches Penny back into the throes of her dysfunctional family, she decides to use the festivities to close the gap in their relationships—even if it means appeasing them and finally losing the few pounds they’ve hounded her about for years. But she doesn’t expect to meet two very different men in the process. East Fisher, the personal trainer who personifies everything she believes she could never attain, and Jonah Black, a man who reminds her so much of herself. Both men are more than they appear at first glance, and both seem interested in her romantically. As Penny uncovers their hidden layers, she discovers when it comes to love and matters of the heart, she’s got a lot to learn about estimating value.
And I thought 
There are a few words that come to mind to describe this one. 
Remarkable for one.  A super great read!  I really enjoyed it!

Susan Tuttle gave us a sweet romance with a plot(s) that kept this reader turning the pages.  There were a couple places that I did predict what was going to happen at least I hoped.  I figured out who the 'best guy' was and I was rooting for him almost to the very end.  

Not only is this a romance there is an additional layer of plot with Penelope's family that makes for an interesting read.  I went from 
really disliking her sister Bella to sort of liking her to wanting to read the rest of her story.    I would love to see what happens next to Bella and Micah.  

The story revolves around the upcoming wedding of Penelope's sister Bella there's a bit of drama going on and some attempted matchmaking.  

The other plot is the relationship of the groom and his best man 
Jonah they are cousins and their family is going through some struggles that impact them both.  

Jonah and his sister Rachel become good friends with Penelope when the hire here to help them with their grandmothers estate. 

A First Glance was in my opinion exceptional.  I will be suggesting it at my library.  I would like to see it available at Christian book stores also.  

My review will appear on retail sites and Good Reads.
I received a Complimentary Copy.


Jonah straightened.
You look great.
Um
...
thanks.
Her hand instinctively touched her scar. In a rush she had
n
t covered it
after her shower
something she rarely forgot. That very mark was the reason
she hadn
t
remained Mom
s belle. Without it covered, how could anyone pay her an h
onest compliment?
She followed him to his car where he unlocked her door and held i
t open, his gaze
snagging hers again.
Our scars are a part of us, Penelope. Being vulnerable enough to
show
them only makes you more beautiful.
He tucked her inside, then he walked around and slid into
the driver

Happy Homemaker in Texas

Welcome to 
Happy Happy Homemaker
linking with Sandra to share a few plans for the new week
and a few 'happenings' from last week




The weather
Perfectly nice weather for awhile.  Low's in upper 60's and high's in upper 70's most days with sun and a few clouds.  It is a beautiful time of year here in Texas.

On the breakfast plate
I have some blackberries so I think I will cook a pancake my stomach is already growling!
I am wearing
Dressed for work today.  Jeans and a ratty t-shirt.  I am planning to work in flowerbeds and chop down some shrubs.  

I am thinking
I need a yardman.  But that's in my dreams.  One of mothers friends told me something really wise the other day.  Don't expect someone to help you.  If you can't do it yourself don't get involved.  We were talking about yards and gardening.  It is a big job for 1 person. 

As I look around the house
Halloween is still up.  I didn't even get in photo's.  

Today's 'To Do' List
Take down the Halloween
Take pics.
Work outside
Clean kitchen and maybe bake bread 
Buy/plant Pansy's

My 'TaDa Moment
Not mine but mother's she walked from the rehab gym to the lobby and back.  She has never done that before. She was not participating last week so they asked me to come. (another thing on my plate)  but the good news is she is doing what they ask when I am there.  We've begun telling her she has to do her rehab so she can come to my house for Thanksgiving. 

Currently reading

A fun, funny, quirky read for review and a tour.  I'll finish it this afternoon and then start a nice sweet romance.  I have a few waiting on the tablet.  I got an email for some free books and took advantage.  Here's what I'll be reading next.
 Her Billionaire in Hiding (Texas Ranch Romance Book 3) by [Summers, Sophia]
A little romance and a rich Texas Cowboy a page turner for sure.

On the reading pile

From the camera
I am a proud MaMa and had to share today.  As of  the 1st he is
the proud owner of this 'dirt'.  A few weeks ago our son lost his 
job at a training facility.  A couple weeks later he was offered to purchase the smaller training facility where he worked part time.  He doesn't actually own the 'dirt' (but that sounded good)  he bought the lesson business with his son.  There will be lots and lots more to share!  It's a Blessing to them and us.  This is more of a 'family run' lesson barn as opposed to a 'Show Barn'.  The family 
will spend alot more time together our D.I.L. now has the chance to be involved.   They are truly excited and Grateful.
