Diann Shaddox Hi, Vivian, thanks for being my friend. I'm introducing my new book, A Faded Cottage, a SC love story.Quaid Witherspoon is a man turning fifty, a man with success and money, a world acclaimed artist, but a simple feat of holding a paintbrush turns Quaid’s life upside down
when fate steps in. I'm spreading the word about Essential Tremors and for each book sold a donation will be given back to the IETF. Thanks

Thanks for the friend request, based on a brief check of your "read" books, I highly recommend this or any other book in the Harry Bosch series by Micheal Connelly."

Thanks for accepting my friend request. I also thank you for the book recommendations, I'll have to consider adding these to my ever-increasing TBR list.


Harlequin Books Hello Vivian, it is a pleasure to meet you.

Please recommend one of your adult read works and I'll add it as well. Thank you for adding Song of George.

Vivian Jesse,
Thanks for accepting the offer to become a GoodReads friend. I also thank you for the book recommendation. I've added it to my ever-growing TBR list. (Please note that A MAN & A HORSE is more of a children's book than an adult read.)
Happy reading... Vivian

Jesse Hanson Namaste Vivian, Thanks for adding me to your friends list. Wishing you the best with your books which look so interesting (I marked A Man & a Horse to read although it may be some time before I get to it).
I hope you won't think it too forward of me if I ask you to consider my spiritual allegory, Song of George: Portrait of an Unlikely Holy Man for your reading list. It's experimental and fictional but was inspired by events from my own life.
Again,best wishes, jesse


Vivian Rai,
