Winter Stroll

Winter Stroll by Elin Hilderbrand This is book # 2 of Hilderbrand’s winter series.  I took a peak at some of the reviews and comments on these books and while the series did not get stellar reviews, I must say I’m loving them.  The narration alternates between all the characters, allowing them all to tell...

The Adults

The Adults by Caroline Hulse I expected this book to be another light & fluffy holiday read.  And while it wasn’t a deep psychological thriller, it did have me flipping pages wondering what the heck happened!  It also had my heart breaking for what some of the characters were going through. In the end, I... Continue Reading →

Winter Solstice

Winter Solstice by Rosamunde Pilcher This was one of my favorite books of 2018, so I decided to re-read so I could refresh my memory and share it with you!  The first time I read this in physical form, so I chose to listen to it in audio the second time. I must say, I... Continue Reading →

Winter Street

Winter Street by Elin Hilderbrand I was so excited when I learned that Hilderbrand wrote a Christmas series!  Hilderbrand is known for her summer-y Nantucket stories. They are often feel good books that touch on all the emotions.  Her characters are real, flawed and lovable and I think I read something by her every summer.... Continue Reading →

There is a series that starts with a woman opening a yarn store.  It sounds like a bore, but you can't help but fall... Continue Reading →

Skipping Christmas

Skipping Christmas by John Grisham I decided this cute little Christmas book would be a great way to get me into the holiday spirit. I was very curious about it, because I didn’t know John Grisham wrote this type of book.  Then, just a few pages in I was floored...this is Christmas with the Kranks!... Continue Reading →

Gingerbread Martini

This is a perfect holiday drink.  It's sweet, creamy & spicy and practically screams Christmas!  Yes, it's that festive. Compared to a true martini, it’s on the light side (only 1/3 of the mixture is alcoholic).  But it's so tasty you will probably drink more than one, so be careful!  🙂 Gingerbread Martini 1 part...

Cranberry Wine

Cranberry Wine? My husband and I had the pleasure of visiting Bar Harbor, Maine.  We managed to time our visit in-between high season (summer) and the 2nd high season (autumn leaves).  The weather was brisk, but we were able to walk to town from our Bed & Breakfast and enjoy all the quaint shops and...
