We’re halfway through July already. Wow. That’s crazy. I’d say “where has this year gone” but I think time has slowed down for all of us, eh?
One of the happy notes from June was my birthday. Lots of family and friends reaching out, and one spectacular picnic at the park, a surprise from our daughter and family with my husband’s help. (It’s a little scary he kept that secret so well. Lol.)
On the writing front, the epic prequel to my fantasy series, Earth Legacy, just went to the editor. So things are moving along.
And now, it’s time to get on with the reading challenge. The newest unread book on my shelf was a gift from another daughter. A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking, God rest his soul.
Ooh, boy. This was a brain-burner. Fascinating, but I’m still not done with it. I have to stop and think about almost every paragraph, let it sink in and try to make sense of it, even though it’s very well written for a layman to read. That man was brilliant and I am in awe. Still, I needed something to post for this month’s challenge, so I fudged a bit and picked up a new-to-me book/author. Yes, another romance. 🙂
What It’s About:
In the first entry in the Madison River Romance series, Keira Knudsen gets the traveling opportunity of a lifetime, but when she reunites with her first love, Robbie, she learns that even a wandering heart needs a home….
No one in the quaint town of West Yellowstone, Montana knows that unassuming geography teacher Keira Knudsen moonlights as sensational travel blogger Kat Wanderfull. No one, that is, except for her first love, Robbie Matthews, who has just discovered the woman he is falling for online is the same one that broke his heart five years ago.
But Robbie has another problem: the mother of his daughter, Anabelle, has resurfaced after a three-year absence determined to rip Anabelle away from him. Robbie needs a steady paycheck for a chance at custody, and now, on the eve of a grand adventure that could give Keira a chance to flee her old, troubled life once and for all, she is in need of assistance.
With so much broken trust between them, Keira and Robbie must keep an arms-length away to make this partnership work. But the more time they spend together, exploring majestic places and sharing new experiences, the closer they get–until their secrets and dreams threaten to cost them everything.
I didn’t realize this was inspirational, and it worked very well for this story. There’s a world of hurt between these two, and one adorable four-year-old girl to bring them together. Honestly, I loved every minute of it. Even the reading disability the hero had was very, very well handled. It was full of hope, love, and everything that brings families together. It’s a recommend from me.
Have a great month, everyone! Stay safe! And hang in there.
