******************** 
Books Completed Last Week:

THE CAKE THERAPIST by Judith Fertig 

My review will be up on June 2.  

A light, fun read.  I enjoyed the book.

An excerpt from my review is below.

If you want a "sweet" read that has love, family, sharing, and just darn good feelings in it, read THE CAKE THERAPIST.  

You won't be disappointed, and you will be running to your nearest bakery to get some sweet treats and perhaps trying to figure out if you are chocolate and raspberry or blueberry and lemon.

 ********************
LAST NIGHT AT THE BLUE ANGEL by Rebecca Rotert for an April 28, 2015, post for a TLC tour.

It was a good read.

 

An excerpt from my review is below:

LAST NIGHT AT THE BLUE ANGEL is about family relationships, love, and living with and loving what you have.  ​

For a debut novel, this book has a lot of depth and characters that will stay with you even after you have finished the book.  Ms. Rotert writes beautifully and pulls you in so well that you become part of the story.

********************

The books below are not necessarily in the order I have planned to read them.  

I normally read in order of publication or tour date.

And....these are not for reading in the upcoming week.  They are books into and including all of 2014.

The "list" is a means of keeping me organized.  A visual display helps a lot for organization along with my Excel lists. 

     

How was your reading week?
