2nd book of 2008

I just finished this one today and its called Snowfall at Willow Lake - The Lakeshore Chronicles by Susan Wiggs. I have read another book in this series and enjoyed it and this one is just as good. There are two other ones that I want to get to complete the set.

Here is what had to say about it:

Book Description
Can a single moment change your entire life?
International lawyer Sophie Bellamy has dedicated her life to helping people in war-torn countries. But when she survives a hostage situation, she remembers what matters most—the children she loves back home. Haunted by regrets, she returns to the idyllic Catskills village of Avalon on the shores of Willow Lake, determined to repair the bonds with her family.

There Sophie discovers the surprising rewards of small-town life—including an unexpected passion for Noah Shepherd, the local veterinarian. Noah has a healing touch for anything with four legs, but he's never had any luck with women—until Sophie.

Snowfall at Willow Lake speaks from the heart about all the loves that fill a woman's life, and all the ways that love is tested and made to grow. It's the story of what comes after a woman survives an unspeakable horror and finds her way home, to healing and redemption and a new chance at happiness.

1st book of 2008

Well I can finally post that I finished a book for 2008! Its called Capture the Rainbow by Iris Johansen. I really enjoyed it.

From here is an editorial review of the book:

Book Description
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen comes a classic tale of excitement, risk, and romance, as two people make a connection so unexpected and so intimate, it may have consequences for a lifetime.

Gorgeous Hollywood stunt double Kendra Michaels is vying for the job of her life—a high-paying, high-risk jump that will clear the debt on her brother’s medical bills. Casey Michaels was a stuntman himself until a job went tragically wrong. Now Kendra is prepared to take the same chance. There’s just one man standing in her way, a man whose irresistible magnetism seduced her in ways she’d never experienced—and never before surrendered to....

Director Joel Damon gets what he wants. And he wants Kendra. But the explosive attraction he feels at the mere sight of her is entirely new to him, and it hasn’t disappeared, not since their one unforgettable night together—and not since Joel discovered she wasn’t the experienced starlet he’d mistaken her for. Now he’s determined to extend that night into many more. But he’ll have to keep Kendra alive to do it, even if it ruins her career. For he has bigger plans in mind for her than she ever imagined.

Finally Winter is Here!

Well within the last 12 hours we have had everything! Snow, sleet, freezing rain, more snow and sleet and freezing rain and now a major winter storm. The roads sucked coming home but I took it slow and easy.

Wow just looked out the window and since I got home around 5:30 there's alot of snow on my car and on the roads. Hubby went into town with the truck to get something. I would of waited till tomorrow.

Thank goodness I am off tomorrow. Bummer! NO SNOW DAY!!

Off to knit.
