The bones of the story were there but I felt some of it got lost in the meandering story.

I read this largely while working on my latest jigsaw puzzle. The combo allowed me to stay up waaaaaaaay too late! Some repetition and a fairly obvious twist. Satisfied with the way it ended.

wanderinglynn Ooh! 💜 I just got that puzzle! I can‘t wait to do it (I just have to find the time to finish the current one I‘m working on.) 😉 2mo

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Really a beautiful puzzle. 2mo
JoyBlue @wanderinglynn 😎 What's your current puzzle? This one was more fun than I expected because the pieces aren't all the same shape and they don't match up in obvious ways. Also, when I was sorting, it was sometimes hard to tell which shades of a color would apply to which panel. 2mo
JoyBlue @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I agree! I gazed at it for a while after finishing tonight. So pretty! 😍 2mo
wanderinglynn @JoyBlue I‘m currently working on Lime in the Coconut (https://www.puzzlewarehouse.com/product/search.cfm?criteria=Lime+in+the+coconut) but I haven‘t had much time recently to work on it. I‘m hoping to put some time in this weekend. ☺️ 2mo
JoyBlue @wanderinglynn OMG!!! Two things: 1️⃣ Your puzzle looks like fun! I hope you enjoy some quality time with it this weekend. 2️⃣ I‘m pretty sure you‘ve just opened a Pandora‘s box for me by introducing me to that puzzle site! DH is not going to be happy!! 😜🤣 2mo
wanderinglynn @JoyBlue I love Puzzle Warehouse! They have a physical store in St. Louis, which is amazing. Plus, they have a puzzle of the month club, which I‘ve done for the last 2 years—so much fun! 2mo

Catching up on my book reviews. This was a #modernmrsdarcy book club pick. A story that shifts between the 1950‘s and the present. Clare Hobbs is about to make a huge mistake until a chance encounter with an elderly woman sitting on a park bench.

So I have wanted to read this book for a while after it was Modern Mrs Darcy pick and I‘m glad that I finally had a chance to read it! What an enjoyable read. So heart warming and positive even though it deals with domestic abuse. My first 5 ⭐️ read of the year! I‘m glad that I was able to finish it up today while my nephew was taking his nap😆

LauraBeth Is this a stand-alone book or part of a series? 6mo
ReadingMeagan I think there is a book that comes before it that introduces some of the characters. It isn‘t a required read. But I would like to read it just to know the characters better! 6mo

Clare meets an older woman on the eve of her wedding day, who gives her the courage to break off the wedding. Shortly after, the older woman (Edith) dies and leaves Clare her house. Thus begins a mystery of sorts, to trace back Edith‘s backstory and history. I wasn‘t sold on this immediately, but by the halfway point, I was sucked in.
It‘s actually the 3rd in the Love Walked In series, but could easily be a standalone.

“For three weeks, I regrouped,introspected, considered my options, although from the outside (and sometimes from the inside, too) this process looked a lot like taking long walks, staying up late watching old movies with my mom, and lying on various items of indoor and outdoor furniture binge-reading the books from my childhood.

And then, one day, Edith gave me a house.”

This was as refreshing a read as the title implies. We encounter Clare the day before her wedding having second thoughts when she meets a woman named Edith that speaks truth into her life. So begins the story that alternates between present day and the 1950s. This is part of a trilogy but I haven‘t read the others and had no problem following this one. But after reading this one, I‘m apt to read more by Maria De Los Santos.

Two stories. Two voices. And then things merge. A powerful and loving story that is beautifully written.

This is one of many books I've read lately with two timelines that eventually match up. I liked Edith's timeline better, but I was more intrigued by Claire's. I think that was because there was more momentum on that side. I mostly enjoyed the book, but it feels like a "so-so" because Claire's central conflict was resolved abruptly and in an unrealistic manner. Also, Claire never seemed to consider Zach dangerous, and he definitely was.

This was a lovely book that covers a lot of genres. Romance, self-reflection and mystery are in there. It is packed with a lot for just over 300 pages. Highly recommend, perfect summer read.

I just finished reading I‘ll Be Your Blue Sky and loved it. I never read any of the other books in the series so I was not familiar with any of the characters and I don‘t think it detracted from the story at all. I guessed the ending pretty early on but it sure was fun getting to the big conclusion.

CarolynM I've read the first 3 of her books and loved them. This one's on the TBR 14mo

Claire is having a hard time with marrying Zach, on paper he looks perfect but maybe not for her. On her wedding day she meets Edith who gives her the courage to think about what she needs & wait for someone who feels like home. When Edith dies she leaves Claire a house & a mystery. With her best friend & highschool boyfriend Claire searches for answers & finds herself.

An author I love & a long-awaited revisit to some favorite characters make for a sweet & satisfying book. There's drama & the tough subject of domestic abuse but there's plenty of family, love, heart & humor too. The kind of book you want to curl up with or crawl inside & spend time with the characters. Paired with Dark Chocolate Blueberry Bites (going a bit with the blue theme 💙) My full book tour review & chocolates recipe are linked below.📚💙

The finished product from today's #audiosouping 🥕Carrot Soup with Chives & Popcorn. Love the color, the flavor & the fun toppings.

I blame the #MarchMunchies foodie photo challenge for having #pizza 🍕as today's prompt. It caused me to stop by my neighborhood pizza place & get their spinach-mushroom-garlic slice for $8. It's actually two big slices but I always put the second slice away in the fridge & eat it for breakfast the next day.🍕😋This is one of the books I'll be reading this weekend for a book tour review next week.📚👍

“It was what she would remember always: how the second she stepped inside, before she‘d so much as taken her first full breath of new air, she was struck by the feeling—the understanding, the certainty—however improbable, that the house was Joseph.”

I am excited to revisit characters from Marisa de los Santos's "Loved Walked In" and "Belong to Me" so it's going to be hard not to jump the line of books for review and start this one. ??
