#MayMoms Alison Kerby, the main character of this series, is a #Single mom who opens a guesthouse in order to provide a better life for her daughter. The need to provide for her daughter is what keeps her focused on the guesthouse, even after she realizes that there are ghosts living there also.

Yes I know Stephanie is going to get herself in ridiculous situations, and yes I know that Morelli and Ranger are going to come to her rescue. Yet still I enjoy reading these books! In this one, Stephanie gets herself mixed up in something much bigger while trying to find someone who skipped out on his visa bond.

LeeRHarry I still enjoy this series too. You know what you‘re going to get every time but you‘re there for the ride anyway 😊 5d
Seekingtardis Haha I think I‘m on like 20 or something and I always come back at some point! 😂 and I still love it even when I know what‘s going to happen! 5d
CoffeeNBooks @Seekingtardis I stopped at book #7 several years ago, and I'm so glad I picked them up again! I don't know how many I'll read before I take a break again, but for now I'm really enjoying them. 4d
CarolynM I'm still reading them too. They're formulaic and fairly repetitive but I usually get a laugh out of them. 4d

Mehso-so

I wanted to like this more than I did. I've read excerpts of it before that I really liked. It was somewhat stream of consciousness writing about several different characters through the course of a day. I think my timing of reading this is just off.

MittenGirlPeach So, I did love this book, I‘ll admit, but if you‘ve never watched the movie The Hours, I can‘t recommend it enough. It‘s transcendent, mesmerizing, all the adjectives. It embodies this book within three different stories. I need to watch it again. 1w
LiteraryinLawrence I‘ll put a plug in for reading The Hours before watching the movie! 1w
Pip2 I just bought this book today! I hope I like it better than you did. 1w

#3 in the series- Allison is hired to solve a murder, and also to find a missing person. I'm not really sure why her ex-husband was included in this one, because it didn't really add anything to the story, but maybe it will make sense in future books.

Alison has just welcomed her first guests to stay at her haunted guesthouse, she's just gotten her private investigator's license, and she's hired to help solve a murder.

The second book in the Haunted Guesthouse series is even better than the first book was. I absolutely didn't expect that ending!

I did pretty well with my March goals.

I wasn't really seeing the results I had hoped for with pilates, so I started exercising with an exercise video and weights that I used to use- I'm already seeing results, and an added bonus was losing a few pounds! My main goal for April is to continue with the exercise.
