Sunday Post #117 Late edition...

 

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated reviewer book blog, and is a post to recap my bookish and non-bookish things from the last week.

Just got back from Northern California. We left Wednesday night after work and drove six hours! Was super tired, but I was glad to get the drive out of the way to enjoy a long weekend up in Foresthill, California. I had never been to Foresthill, but the town was cute and just a little ways from Auburn. The weather was gorgeous and I took my grandkids to the local park two days in a row, which was awesome and just across the street from our rental.  Also went on two hikes.
Now I'm back at home, unpacked and doing laundry.

We finished Every Last Fear on our way home and it was a bit tragic, but a really good twisty mystery! Finally got to See No Evil after several years of it being on my TBR. It finally came out on audio so it was easier to squeeze it in. I ended up skimming When a Cowboy Loves a Woman. The author's writing isn't for me. Loved The Kindred Spirits Supper Club. Wild Sign was a re-read by audio and it was even better the second time around.

Received/Purchased/Library Lend:


After enjoying Changing the Rules  I got a copy of A Thin Disguise, the next in the series. The Invisible Husband of Frick Island sounded interesting. Colleen Oakley is a new-to-me-author so I hope it works out. I just downloaded the audio of Fear No Evil after finishing book two of the series. It sounds like a nail biter! 

Watched:


Obviously, my grandkids were in charge of the TV. That being said, this is a really cute series, especially if you like historical westerns and horses! 


How was your week?

  2. Foresthill! I've been there many times. When I was a kid, my aunt and her family lived in Michigan Bluff and Foresthill was the nearest town. Glad you enjoyed the trip and had a good time with your grandkids.

    Glad you loved your books this week. I'm hoping to start Kindred Spirits Supper Club soon. I need to read more Alison Brennan books.

    Have a great week, Rachel!

    1. I've only read maybe one or two of the Lucy books. Although, she did crossover into Max Revere in Shattered, one of my favorites of the series. Thanks, Anne!

  8. That sounds like such a lovely vacation! We actually took the weekend to head to the lake house, so we had some much needed rest too.
