Welcome to our first “non-holiday” Tuesday in 2019.  I do love the holidays, but, for some reason, they lingered too long this year.  Probably because Hallmark started showing Christmas movies in July…and most of them I’d already seen.  Sigh.

So now I’m ready for new things, fresh things…and new books!  Yes, I had vowed to cut down a bit on the “click to buy” behavior, but some books have been on my wish list for so long that I couldn’t resist.

Today I bought these:

The Best of Us, by Robyn Carr

In Sullivan’s Crossing, #1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr has created a place where good people, powerful emotions, great humor and a healthy dose of common sense are the key ingredients to a happy life. Sullivan’s Crossing brings out the best in people. It’s a place you’ll want to visit again and again.

I love this series, so I’m eager to pick up where I left off in this delightful place.


Then I downloaded Untouchable, by Jayne Ann Krentz

A man’s quest to find answers for those who are haunted by the past leads him deeper into the shadows in this electrifying novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Promise Not to Tell.


Now I am reading my February e-ARCs, and today I started The Winter Sister, by Megan Collins. 

In this spellbinding and suspenseful debut, a young woman haunted by the past returns home to care for her ailing mother and begins to dig deeper into her sister’s unsolved murder.


How are you enjoying the New Year?  What, if anything, is keeping you busy and happy?  I am trying to distract myself from the chaos created by the WH.



  1. I do like the sound and the looks of The Winter Sister. February to be published, you say?
    Will have to look it up.
    And I know what you mean about being glad to roust myself from the holidays and move forward into 2019. I’m playing my new piano like crazy, am involved in a number of challenging book challenges, and, and… much more.
    And keep that WH out of my line of view. I keep up with the news, but not so much that I’m driven insane, which would happen if I did more than read the head stories of the NYT each day. More to life! Though it is terribly distressing
    Best wishes to you, Laurel!

    1. Thanks, Judith, I do love a book that grabs my attention from the first page, and this one has succeeded. Lucky you, with the new piano. And it is always a good thing to be challenged by books and events.

      I need to scroll right on past most of the FB stories, as they could definitely make me crazy.

      Enjoy your week, and thanks for visiting.
