The insert postcard telling us about the feature of the month and why it is not to miss!

The Secret Ingredient for a Happy Marriage by Shirley Jump ($12.63) – We all know that marriages can be lots of drama. This is a family story rallying around Nora and her sisters and how she works through all the adult things that are going on in her life. Plus it takes place in a bakery! I can’t wait to ready for all the yumminess that is there to discover.


Nora has always been the sister who binds the O’Bannons together. No matter what crisis hits, smart, dependable Nora knows how to fix it. But for Nora, the pressure of perfection is taking its toll.

Nora’s marriage is in trouble, and she has been reluctant to worry her sisters with just how dire her situation is. Now though, faced with losing her husband, her home, and the life she’s worked so hard to build, Nora can no longer pretend.

As the O’Bannon women rally around her, Nora begins to see that failure is nothing to fear. It’s like they say in the bakery: if you want to make something good, you can’t be afraid to get messy. When her husband returns, asking Nora to give their family a second chance, Nora must decide if their relationship can be saved-or if it’s time to throw out the old recipe and start from scratch.

Since this is the featured book of the month we got a note from the author with information on why she wrote the book.
The Sugarhouse Blues by Mariah Stewart ($12.78) – This is the second book in the two book Hudson Series. Another family drama noel this month. I’m very curious to see why their dad kept his sister and his life a secret from his daughters. I’m always mesmerized by family dynamics and how they always play out.

Allie, Des, and Cara, each having her own reasons for wanting a share of their father’s estate, meet in the grand Victorian home in which he grew up, only to be greeted by another secret he purposely hid from them: his sister Bonnie. The women reluctantly band together to take on Fritz’s challenge, working with a local contractor to begin the renovations financed by an account Fritz had set up for the task. While the restoration appears to go smoothly at first, it soon becomes apparent that the work will be more extensive than originally thought, and Des, elected to handle the money, needs to find ways to stretch out the remaining savings while searching for new sources of funding.

As strangers linked only by their DNA try to become a family, the Hudson sisters also try to come to terms with the father they only thought they knew. In the process, each woman discovers her own capacity for understanding, forgiveness, love, and the true meaning of family.

The Theory of Happily Ever After by Kristin Billerbeck ($11.99) – I love to cruise so meeting a stranger that is perfect for you is a fantasy! These are the kinds of stories I can just binge in the summer and they are perfect quick reads.

According to Dr. Maggie Maguire, happiness is serious science, as serious as Maggie takes herself. But science can’t always account for life’s anomalies–for instance, why her fiancé dumped her for a silk-scarf acrobat and how the breakup sent Maggie spiraling into an extended ice cream-fueled chick flick binge.

Concerned that she might never pull herself out of this nosedive, Maggie’s friends book her as a speaker on a “New Year, New You” cruise in the Gulf of Mexico. Maggie wonders if she’s qualified to teach others about happiness when she can’t muster up any for herself. But when a handsome stranger on board insists that smart women can’t ever be happy, Maggie sets out to prove him wrong. Along the way she may discover that happiness has far less to do with the head than with the heart.

Storm Front by Susan May Warren ($10.39) – I’ll admit it Tornados scare the crap out of me. I’m an East Coast girl so I’m used to hurricanes and you can plan for those but tornados come out of nowhere and that is so scary. This one sounds a bit to me like a mix of Where the Heart is and Twister! Two movies I can watch over and over again.

A tornado has destroyed a small Minnesota community and among the missing are not only a group of students but PEAK Rescue team leader Chet King. Ty Remington will stop at nothing to rescue his mentor, not even when the girl he loved–and lost–walks back into his life. But Brette needs his help more than he knows, despite her stubborn determination to push him away. And when he gets a second chance, loving her just might cost him more than he can imagine.

A blogger for Vortex Storm Chasers, Brette Arnold didn’t expect her adventures to land her in the same place as Ty, the guy who she walked–no, ran–from over a year ago. She had her reasons–good ones. The kind that tell her that falling for him again would only lead to heartache. But Ty isn’t the kind of man to give up–not on the missing students, or on her.

Life and love hang in the balance in Susan May Warren’s breathless story of holding on to hope during a deadly summer of storms.

The There Was You by Miranda Liasson ($6.29) – Does anyone stay in the small town they grew up in? I’m not from a small town but even now I’m like nope I don’t want to move back. Once you grow up someplace I really think you are ready to move on and find and discover your own world outside of your young self-life  Since I’m on the movie path this one gives me feels like Hope Floats which is another of my go-to movies so a perfect pick for me.

Angel Falls is the last place Sara Langdon wants to be. Her hometown may be charming, but it’s also filled with memories of her “wedding-that-never-was.” Yet Sara’s grandmother needs her, and joining her dad at his medical practice gives Sara time to figure out what she wants for her future. But when her first patient turns out to be Colton Walker, the man who sabotaged her wedding, Sara starts to wonder if she’ll ever be able to escape her past.

As police chief, Colton Walker is devoted to his small town, and he’s equally determined to avoid its newest resident. He and Sara have always gotten along like oil and water, and since the bachelor party incident, he’s her Enemy #1. But after sharing an unexpected–and unexpectedly hot–kiss, Colton starts to wonder if the woman he’s always fighting with is the one he should be fighting for.

This month we got Chamomile Organic Herbal tea to go along with all of our reading.

Fresh Fiction Box Not To Miss sent another awesome box of new books for me to check out this summer. They are all perfect pool reads and since I plan to spend lots of time poolside I can’t wait.  Fresh Fiction always sends a great assortment of books from authors I already love and new to me authors that I can’t wait to find. The value is fantastic and I have a pile of to be read books at the ready for when I can curl up and read to my heart’s content.
