Well July is off to a smashing start! I have read two novels so far both by Fern Michaels and I have to say I love her books!
Book 1: Hey, Good Looking - finished July 4th
From the publisher:
Darby Lane and Russell Gunn had been inseparable friends from their early years in the Horseshoe, their wonderful Baton Rouge neighborhood of Southern comforts and childhood fancies, all the way through to graduate-school dreams and beyond. Then the unthinkable happens: a tragic accident takes Russ''s life, and Darby''s world is shattered. Returning to the Horseshoe in utter despair, Darby clings to the only family she''s ever known: the three wily and colorful aunts who raised her. align="left"> Her long journey to healing takes hold as Darby begins to see Russ''s brother Ben through new eyes. Suddenly love blooms in the place of grief, and now, with the help of her aunts, Darby faces the challenge of reuniting Ben with his estranged father -- if they can get through the conniving schemes of Ben''s social climber stepmother. Calling on the same tender care and patience with which she builds custom dollhouses, Darby begins to create a new life out of her loss -- and comes to understand that love truly can conquer anything.
