Home Again by Kathleen Shoop is enjoyed and reviewed by Mary's Cup of Tea....
"This story starts out tragic and it is a painful time during which the Vietnam War was going on and we lost so many men. April's brother, Andrew was one of those men who lost his life over there and his best friend, Hale, survived. Hale feels guilty because he survived and Andrew didn't.
April feels guilty because she finally realizes how much her parents sacrificed to send her to college while dealing with Andrew being in Vietnam and then his death. They experienced a financial setback and their vacation home suffered.
When April fled her wedding, she ran to the vacation home and ran into Hale, or should we say he rescued her? Together, maybe they can heal each other. If nothing else, they can repair the vacation home and help Andrew's parents get back some of their joy. And in the end, it just might help them discover other things.
It's a great little book and it's definitely a worthy subject and a hopeful message."

#Book Revew of Dog-ma the zen of slobber by Author Barbara Boswell Brunner shared with us today by The More the Merrier
"Barbara Boswell Brunner reminds me of James Alfred Wight (some of you may know him as James Herriot) in her writing. She writes straight from experience, but has a way of telling the story so you feel like you are right there. You melt yourself into the story, and feel the feelings as if you were right there. Through the stories in this book, you grow to love these dogs, and these people. You learn their lifestyle, and the lessons that each dog brings in it’s addition to the family.
This is a book to savor. I laughed, and cried, and knew exactly what they meant about so many of the things that happened – having owned several dogs in my lifetime, myself.
If you’ve ever ‘rescued’ a dog, whether to keep as a ‘forever pet’ or just to foster, you will understand and sympathize with every story, every laugh, and every tear. Somehow these amazing creatures make us want to be better, if for no other reason than just to be a better friend to them."

Book Review of Dog-ma the zen of slobber by Author Barbara Boswell Brunnershared with us by The Shopping Duck"I really enjoyed reading this book. I have always had pets in my life and I loved how Barbara was able to convey the personalities of each of her dogs. It is sad that in today’s disposable world, that many animals are thrown away when one little thing goes wrong. This book had me in tears at times when Barbara and her husband and the other dogs would have to say goodbye to a faithful companion. I recommended this book to anyone, not just #dog lovers!"Read more and enter the dogtastic #giveaway here....http://www.theshoppingduck.com/booksdvds/dog-ma-zen-slobber-barbara...
Barbara’s vivid and dramatic stories, told with a wicked sense of humor, will make you laugh out loud. She definitely gets what living with rescued dogs (nine of them!) is all about.
When Barbara meets her future husband, Ray, it is love-and dog-at first sight. Over the course of thirty-two years, seventeen relocations and nine dogs, their mutual love of dogs guides them on their unconventional path. The love that Barbara and Ray get in return is literally lifesaving, with one dog attacking a lethal intruder and another discovering Barbara’s cancer. Her own survival story underscores the story of how her dogs become survivors themselves.
Each new dog adds its own dynamic to the family, sometimes upending it. From Turbo (whose Spock-like ears may have provided super powers), Barbara learns about the will to live; Lexington demonstrates incredible patience and an inexplicable love of golf; Madison teaches that laughter is truly the best medicine and that the whole “nine lives thing” is not reserved just for cats; Morgan should be sainted for tolerating Izzy, who is as cute as she is bad. Barbara is certain that somewhere in doggie heaven there is a poster that says “If you are sick, injured or in need of really expensive medical care, FIND THESE HUMANS!”
Enjoying Home Again by Kathleen Shoop today is Life as Leels...."The first time I read Hale’s name, I knew I was going to fall in love with him.And I did.This was a quick read (literally only took me a couple of hours). Aside from the fact that it really isn’t that long, I didn’t want to put it down.I kept forgetting it was set back in a different time where women weren’t “allowed” the independence we have now, but hot dang, if a man such as Hale wanted to do things for me and protect me and take care of me, so be it!This was a fabulous romance story that I absolutely fell in love with. I loved April, I fell madly in love with Hale, and I would love a place like Bliss."Read more on the #book here....http://lifeasleels.com/2013/12/home-again-2.html
1969– Set on the shores of the Albemarle Sound, April Harrington has fond memories of summers at her family home, Bliss. After her fairytale wedding disintegrates, it becomes her refuge—the one place where she can attempt to pull the unraveling threads of her life back together. Unbeknownst to April, the stately house has been neglected in recent years. The once-sturdy roof is leaking in a few dozen places, and the wharf is rotting. Nothing is the same as she remembers. Nothing except for Hale, a Viet Nam pilot who is haunted by a dreadful secret, and who is also her brother’s best friend, a brother killed in the conflict that is tearing the country apart.
In Hale’s presence, April finds familiarity and solace. They share grief for a lost loved one, and from the comfort of Hale’s arms, passion blooms. Yet, April’s future is unresolved. Her wealthy, arrogant almost-bridegroom wants her back and the ghosts of Viet Nam are whispering to Hale. Can they find new love in an old treasured home, the kind of affection and trust that lasts forever?
Create With Joy reviews mystery #book The Bridesmaid today by Jenny Scotti....."Wow, this book really was an eye opener to a lot of things that can go on in a town! And the strange part is that there are so many suspects because Kelly was not a good person, but she was a person who deserved better. She was pregnant with a married man's baby, but he isn't the one who killed her. The killer will really shock you and the worst shock is that as the book ends, no one will find out who the killer is. But you will want to read this book to discover why and how a 16 year old girl could bring a whole town to it's knee's and be so problematic to a lot of adult lives. I don't blame kids for mistakes, I blame adults who know better. But still, the story will shock you down to the core! A must read if you love mysteries and love to solve them!"http://www.mmbearcupoftea.com/2013/12/the-bridesmaid-book-review.html
