This Week in Happy

Boring. Cold. Life. But still happy! I’m a little too amused by this. “Authentic Weather” is the app and it’s hilarious sometimes!

Review: Lady Isabella’s Scandalous Marriage (Highland Pleasures, #2)

Lady Isabella's Scandalous Marriage (Highland Pleasures, #2)Lady Isabella’s Scandalous Marriage by Jennifer Ashley

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a re-read. The first read, I didn’t read Book 1, so some parts didn’t make sense. Now they do.

I will be honest and say that I’m glad to see Fellowes in the book. He was the unknown brother from Ian’s story.

Isabella and Mac are also from the first book, who are separated married couple. Mac is a painter, and he’s being impersonated. Isabella is the one who recognized that the painting that claimed to be done by Mac was in fact not done by him. A wife would recognize that, even an estranged one.

It led to mysteries and another attempted murder, but it was a good book, with some sadness, when they recall the miscarriage of their little boy, their first child.

Review: Barefoot Season by Susan Mallery

Barefoot SeasonBarefoot Season by Susan Mallery

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There aren’t a lot of books that can make me cry that aren’t really designed to make me cry.
This book though? I cried all the way through. Some happy tears, some heartbroken tears. All good tears.

Michelle is a war vet. She’s got a clear case of PTSD, and she’s worsening it with drinking.

Carly was Michelle’s best friend, until Michelle’s father left with Carly’s mom. And then Carly stole Michelle’s boyfriend, and Michelle stole him back.

It was all very high school (happened in high school), but Michelle is back, and they have to face those issues.

Michelle isn’t dealing well, at all, and drinking. She’s asked to take care of an abandoned and abused dog. Together, they help each other heal.

Along the way, Michelle and Carly heal their relationship as well, and relationships with a couple of great guys.

Great read, very engaging and kept me sucked in.

Some Steps Taken

Off we went, me in some not-so-comfy, but cute shoes. First, we went to Elmont for Parent-Teacher conferences. It actually went well. Josh was worried on everything, but it all turned out well in the end. We even got to chit-chat with Ethan’s other teachers, and Madison’s 1st Grade teacher, who told Madi that she missed having her in class. Madi’s ears turned ALL red!
