After the loss of her husband, Samantha McKay was forced in to an extreme version of morning by her in-laws. Still recovering or at least getting usedAfter the loss of her husband, Samantha McKay was forced in to an extreme version of morning by her in-laws. Still recovering or at least getting used to his limitations from injuries he sustained in the war, Sir Benedict Harper was out doing his best to be his old self when he almost trampled Samantha and her dog. Apologies given and accepted, friendships could have formed if not for the overly strict in-laws. Realizing that she needed to be out from under their control, she escaped in the night with the help of Ben. Traveling together, they get to know each other and themselves a little better.
Book 3... As always, I really enjoyed the continuing story of the Survivors Club. This addition to the series was no exception. I enjoyed hearing of the other survivors and how their new relationships have continued, I also am looking forward to the next installment of this series. Thank you to LibraryThing for the Early Reviewer copy of this book. MB is quickly becoming an auto buy for me....more

At times a bitWhat a long book, lots of characters and a very interesting plot twist made for a fun read. Very enjoyable novel with a lot happening. At times a bit confusing, I found myself trying to remember the genealogy of everyone from each time to try to figure out who was the great great great something of who. A little distracting, but my own personal problem I think. A great story, one that I am very interested to see what happens next. Looking for a copy of "Dragonfly in Amber"....more

In one book you can see the difference between each muscle group and find out the best stretching exercises to benefit you. It helps you determine not only by muscle groups, but in the back of the book it lists suggestions for stretching by sport or activity. This guide gives a detailed description of each stretch with helpful hints, exact muscle being used and very good pictures of the muscle and the stretch. Over all, this is by far one of the better exercise/stretching books I have ever seen. Thank you LibraryThing for giving me a chance to see it through EarlyReviewer program....more

The challenge of tracking down and interviewing the author of a best seller seemed easy, but Finn Dalton wasn't easy to track down. Convincing him to give an interview would be even more challenging. Finn just wrote about what he knew, how he lived and the joy he got from living in the Alaskan tundra, he never thought that others would enjoy reading about it so much. Becoming a best selling author was harder than he expected. Never wanting to be in the spotlight, only wanting to live quietly in his Alaskan cabin, he didn't like the attention that he was now getting, especially from all the tenacious reporters.
Another great holiday novel from Debbie Macomber. I have always liked her books and this is no different. She can take simple love stories and make them a heartwarming story that stays with you for a long time. The story of Carrie and Finn is no different, this is one stand alone book that I may have to read every winter. Thanks to LibraryThing for the early reviewer copy and Thanks again to Debbie Macomber, I eagerly await your next book....more
Hearing that her little sister was having a baby and she was not even married yet, Lauren took her future into her own hands. Breaking up with her lonHearing that her little sister was having a baby and she was not even married yet, Lauren took her future into her own hands. Breaking up with her long time boyfriend was just the start of it. Helping a friend deal with the aftermath of a teenage daughters revelations and really thinking about what she wanted in a husband was very tiring. Finding a new relationship in an unlikely way, place and person was very surprising. New friends from the yarn shop on Blossom Street helped, while owner Lydia is trying to find out what is troubling her adopted daughter, help care for her aging mother and balance the business with family commitments. Another customer and fellow knitter Bethanne, is having her own marital issues. Her long distance relationship with her new husband is putting stress on her and her daughters relationship with a little help from her ex. As Lydia has learned from her past experiences, there is always a way if you keep trying and that is what they all must do.
Book 10 ..... I am such a big DM fan that all the Blossom Street books are automatically on the top of my tbr. This one did not disappoint me either. The continuing story of the characters is so much fun to follow. This one is quite predictable (as a lot of them are), but still so enjoyable. It is the journey through the relationships of Debbie Macomber books that draw me in every time. This book spent a lot of time on Lydia and her mothers relationship to her daughter, I hope there is more to the story in the next book (which I am hopeful there will be). Once again, Debbie Macomber writes a book of friendship and gentle romance that warms the heart. I was lucky enough to be able to read this book from the Early Reviewers program at LibraryThing (even though I didn't get it till long after actual release date)....more
