A Week in Winter

by

This was a very nice read, and I expect nothing less of Maeve Binchy. I have always loved her books and this one made me feel good to read it and sad when it ended, she could have gone on and on with it. Very well done, very descriptive of the Irish coastline, talk of a beautiful Stone Inn and the characters weren't all a bed of roses, some thorns,but she developed them well and left plenty of material to visit this place again. Unfortunately with her death we will not visit Stone House again, but her books will always be recommended to my friends by me.

This was a very complicated historical read and one that I just couldn't keep interested in… The writing was very good but the detail about monks from the 1500's couldn't hold my attention.
Holly Blues

Per usual I couldn't figure out the who done it until the end… but even if it should be easy for me, the best part of these books are the vivid descriptions of the plants and landscape involved in the story written by this author. That is why, even though I'm a few behind , I will continue to read this series and want the next one as I finish each one!
The Darling Dahlias and the Cucumber Tree

Fun new series to read and I think there are one or two more also. Love the characters and time period, just a nice get away book to read on a lazy day.
Mourning Gloria

I am an avid gardener and I love this series. I have every book and sometimes get behind but remember the love of reading when I get into one of SWA's books! Plus the fact she obviously hates cilantro is another check on her side for me. I can just imagine just finding her as an author not read and getting the chance to read the whole series from the start over again. Well written and so descriptive and some books with recipes at the end to boot. Enjoy!
The Gilly Salt Sisters

This book started very slow, but ended with a bang and I'm so glad I stuck wit hit. Another one of those books that has been on my TBR shelf since it came out, March 2012, but I'm always glad to find a gem on the shelf, makes me happy to buy them and let them sit for a while.
It's Classified: A Novel

This follow up book, or sequel of Eighteen Acres was absolutely some of the best reading I will do this year! Imagine how happy I was after I had taken almost two years to take the first book off my shelf to read when I found out there was another. The plot was different and written so well, I only hope she has another book in her for this year!
Force of Nature

Welcome addition to my library, another Joe Pickett Novel, this one focused on Nate, Joe's long time family friend, and it doesn't disappoint. Now on to read the new Joe Pickett I won through LibraryThing early reviewers!

Oh no, I'm totally bored with this series now, hate to say it ( and I have seventeen already) probably won't continue reading it any more… sad.
The Recipe Club: A Tale of Food and Friendship

Just couldn't really like this book, very slow and ended each chapter with some recipes I couldn't imagine a kid could be bothered with. I've read a lot of books centered around people cooking and this won't be on my favorite list.
