Trisha | 31440 comments I'm so sorry we missed you Amanda.

Vicki, are you interested in rescheduling??


Amanda | 4411 comments No worries :)

I'll check back in when you guys start. I can't wait to see what you guys think.

Trisha, I'm sorry I missed this message, but I would like to reschedule. I'll be on vacation until June 9 but I will be reading! I'll definitely take the book with me but if you see this message in time (I leave Monday morning early) let's schedule it for this week if possible. If not and we need to schedule it for later, I own it so that's okay too.

Trisha | 31440 comments how's your vacation going??


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Awesome! I had lunch with my friend Lee Fullbright, a great visit with my brother-in-law and sister-in-law, I've had time with one of my daughters and 4 of my grandkids, lots of good food, lol but not much sunshine. My husband is currently barbecuing chicken and corn on the cob and my daughter just took her two girls down to the beach. We are really enjoying our time. :)

Trisha | 31440 comments I am glad you did like this one more than me.
I think if I'd bought it from the get go and didn't have the "this can't possible be this obvious" - I think I would have enjoyed it more.

well....we will definitely enjoy our next ones more :)


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Ha ha,, let's hope so!
