Picture Perfect (Weddings by Design Book #1): A Novel by Janice Thompson - Romance

Feisty wedding photographer Hannah McDermott has dealt with her share of difficult brides. But none can compare to the ultimate Bridezilla she's dealing with now. Still, she's trying desperately to impress Bella Neeley, Galveston Island's most sought-after wedding planner, so she can take the top spot in Bella's list of recommended photographers--a spot currently occupied by her arch-rival, Drew Kincaid. What she doesn't count on, however, is falling head over heels for the competition.

With her contagious humor and cast of quirky characters, Janice Thompson gives readers more of the bridal business drama they want in a brand-new series all about those long-suffering people who make beautiful weddings happen. Readers are desperately waiting for more of Bella and this new series brings her back in a big way, while introducing new characters fans will love. Fans will laugh out loud as they experience this breezy and entertaining novel from a great storyteller.

Thanks Wendy for the wonderful cuppa... maybe it will help ease me into sleep tonight.

Your artwork is always so amazing and I really enjoy seeing what will pop into my screen when you open. Thanks for being (as red says.. a brick) and the glue that holds the thread together. ♥

The Fortune Quilt - Contemporary Romance

"Accept the book with the amber spine.
Return the frog. Take the cab.

What the hell kind of advice is that?"

When Tucson Today segment producer Carly McKay visits the quirky artist's community of Bilby, Arizona, to do a story on a psychic quiltmaker, she receives an odd reading... and her life falls apart in eerie harmony with what the quilt foretold. Her best friend professes his undying love; her show gets canceled; and the mother who disappeared seventeen years ago appears on their doorstep, getting instant forgiveness from the entire family... except Carly.

Carly rushes off to Bilby to return the cursed quilt, and then surprises herself; she stays. She rents a cabin, gets a job, and meets an artist who shows her new ways to look at life, and love. Can she run away and start a new life, or should she go back and stitch her old one back together?

And why is it so hard to get a straight answer from a psychic, anyway?

Trust No One (Vista Security) - Espionage

When reality is a web of lies and the truth endangers all you hold dear . . .Trust No One.

Drafted into the nebulous underworld of a secret agent right out of college, MJ Thornberg survived betrayal and attempted murder at the hands of her trusted partner.

Ben Walker is a man with his own secrets. An agent with MJ's former employer, Vista Security, Ben is clawing his way out of a downward spiral from a job gone wrong when Vista sends him after MJ, with orders to use the threat of halting her baby's adoption to ensure her cooperation.

Furious and trusting no one, MJ intends on working the job solo until a sniper's bullet alters her plans. With no choice but to work with Ben, MJ must confront ghosts from her past, discover truths of her present, and trust that the future she deserves is in her hands to create.

Just found out that our 20+ year old van won't pass state inspection and will have to be replaced. Sigh.
We've had lots of fun adventures in that old van. Hate to see it go.
Probably replace it with a pick-up truck, DH needs a utility vehicle.

Thanks LOB!
I love my afternoon tea ( and my morning coffee!)


.¸¸.° ⊱✿✿⊰ °.¸¸.·´¯`» FRIDAY QUESTION «´¯`·.¸¸.° ⊱✿✿⊰ °.¸¸.·

When you were doing your online or "in store" Christmas shopping did you throw in a gift or 2 for yourself?? What treat(s) did you get?? No guilt here......I always have to get my order up to the Free Shipping option!!

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 27, 2013 7:24:56 AM PST
Good question Suze! This year I ordered my first Christmas present - slippers - and had them shipped with wrapping from DH, so that he "knew" which slippers I wanted. They are my favorite present this year.
My youngest daughter learned from the best. She bought a teacup for her sister. The price was $15 for one cup, $20 for two, so she bought two and wrapped up one for herself and put it under the tree, and labelled it "To Me, From Me".

It all makes perfect sense to me! You've taught your daughter well.....for $5. more she got a $15. item....can't beat that! : )

FRIDAY QUESTION response: Of course I got something for me! Usually I get something that could be considered a gift for the whole family to use. This year that gift was a Keurig coffee maker. I also got myself one of those Pandora type bracelets that was a great deal and it earned me a bunch of Swagbucks so I got more amazon gift certificates to buy myself more books, too.

new mom says:
With a little help from me, Santa brought me a movie I wanted as well some candy and nail polish for my stocking. My husband never thinks about stockings so I take care of them for myself as well. This year, he shocked me and snuck in a bag of dark chocolate for me. I was so proud of him for remembering. (We laughed, though, as he bought it at the home improvement store which probably stocks such things just for guys like him.)

Suze, The new picture of Landon is so cute...
No little gifts for me.. from me.. Not this year anyway.

Suze boos  says:
Thanks Sandy,
Next year then! I just found out yesterday there was a huge cut in my husband's pay in order for him not to get laid off. We've been through layoffs before and he's always been able to get another job, but now that he's older I don't know what would happen. No contracts coming in means no work in his field.

For some reason I know it will all be okay.

I usually do get something for myself as I shop, but I didn't this year. I'm not sure why...

I'm sorry about your husband's job. I hope things pick up for him soon.

Wendy -- thanks for starting us off. I wish I were home with my Kindle and a nice big cup of coffee or tea...but I am thankful for my job.

Sandy -- have you given any Christmas book updates lately? I enjoy getting your thoughts on what you read.

Suze -- Sorry to hear about your husband's job and pay cut, especially at this time of year. I do understand as my first husband was laid off one Christmas eve. I hope everything works out for you both.

My DH and I don't exchange presents as we buy what we want throughout the year. I guess that means we celebrate Christmas all year long! ;o)


ETA -- That's one perfect stocking stuffer! (I hope you understand that I mean the photo of Landon.)

Sorry if I put a big downer on our conversation, I didn't mean to!! We had a layoff when my youngest was still in college. We made it through that......there's lots worse things in life than having to cut back!

I ordered some slippers for myself. They are similar to a pair I have, so I knew I liked them. They were on my Wishlist forever at $20. and all of a sudden went to $12.99. They had never price dropped before, so I got them right away before the price went back up. I bought a couple calendars too.

Linda... I'm sympathizing with you at being forced to get a new car. Someone rear ended my oldest sons car during the summer. The car was still fine to drive, but when he went for state inspection a few weeks ago they told him the same thing. It won't ever pass inspection again. He's now going to have to replace the car sadly.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 27, 2013 11:39:46 AM PST
Hey Suze.... That's one of the reason we all come here. To support our friends through good times and not so good times. I'm so sorry your husbands pay was cut in order for the company to stay afloat. Hopefully the New Year will bring new contracts for the company and things will return to normal soon for all involved. In the meantime we'll keep you both in our thoughts. ❤️

I'm just hoping you don't have to cut your daily chocolate consumption. ;o)

I stayed up quite late reading last night and slept in late this morning. I cancelled my PT appt. for today. It would have been my 4th session this week and it was just too must after all of the work for Christmas this week. Rick is off from work this week and next week as well. I see some lunches out in my future and may even look to going to the movies. :>)

As for Friday's Question.... I don't think I did buy myself anything this year. I often have through the years, but not this year. I did look at getting a new purse and am still considering getting one if it still in the store the next time I go back and it's a good price. ;)
