So, you know the other day I blogged that I was going to read in bed? Well, with the crappy weather this last weekend, and not feeling like any editing (I really needed a break), I charged my Kindle… and read a few books 🙂
Because I enjoyed the 2 books I read so very much, I feel the need to blog about them 🙂 and yes, I finished them both this weekend.
Riversong by Tess Thompson
Lauren told me about the book.
When Lee Tucker’s husband commits suicide, he leaves her pregnant and one million dollars in debt to a loan shark. Out of options, she escapes to her deceased mother’s dilapidated house located in a small Oregon town that, like her, is financially ruined, heartbroken and in desperate need of a fresh start. Lee’s resilience leads to a plan for a destination restaurant named Riversong, to new chances for passion and love, and to danger from her dead husband’s debt as her business blooms.
Well, I loved the book and didn’t want the story to end. I was completely engrossed in their lives while I read it. I thought the way the author dealt with Lee’s past was really good, and I liked how snippets of her past came through right until the end… it made the book more interesting for me.
I loved the characters and there’s something that Lee’s friend said in the book that I need to go back and find and pin up somewhere to remember (if I could only remember where it was in the book… I’ll just have to read it again 😉 )
The Edge of Never by JA Redmerski
I read about this book on Nicole’s blog and then when Sharon also blogged about, I decided I needed to read it too.
Twenty-year-old Camryn Bennett had always been one to think out-of-the-box, who knew she wanted something more in life than following the same repetitive patterns and growing old with the same repetitive life story. And she thought that her life was going in the right direction until everything fell apart.Determined not to dwell on the negative and push forward, Camryn is set to move in with her best friend and plans to start a new job. But after an unexpected night at the hottest club in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, she makes the ultimate decision to leave the only life she’s ever known, far behind.With a purse, a cell phone and a small bag with a few necessities, Camryn, with absolutely no direction or purpose boards a Greyhound bus alone and sets out to find herself. What she finds is a guy named Andrew Parrish, someone not so very different from her and who harbors his own dark secrets.
Loved loved loved the book. I did however feel that the book was cut short, and she didn’t deal with the ending properly, and instead added an epilogue. I felt a bit cheated… probably cos I wanted the book to carry on 🙂
