About the Book

Once upon a time, Melody Johansson had believed in happily ever afters.

I am a new fan of Carla Laureano’s. I had recently read Starstruck, my first Carla Laureano read, when Brunch at Bittersweet Cafe review sign-ups were announced at Celebrate Lit. I knew I had to read this book. I’m about 25% of the way into this story, and I am LOVING it. I can already say that I highly recommend this novel!

    “He stood in the middle of his secret room, staring at walls covered with old newspaper clippings.” from “Mind Games” by Nancy Mehl, a CF RS thriller I highly recommend. . . Thanks for the opportunity to enter a wonderful giveaway! Would love to win a print copy of Brunch at Bittersweet Cafe by Carla Laureano!

    I shared this book on my blog too! Here’s the first line from American Omens by Travis Thrasher — The spiderweb cracks in the windshield of the old Chevy SUV made it easy to spot in the parking lot.

    Happy Friday!

    “Panic gripped her as the airplane’s hatch door closed.” From SAVING MEGHAN by D.J. Palmer. It’s a must-read about a parent’s love for a child that may cost the child her life. Thank you for the chance!

    This is one I’ve added to my #TBR! Hoping to get to read it sooner rather than later!

    I’m currently reading Sarah Sundin’s latest book “The Sky Above Us” I’ll share here the first line from Chapter 30 (because that’s where I am at this moment).
    “At 250 yards, Adler squeezed the trigger. Texas Eagle’s bullets erupted the length of the Messerschmitt 110’s right wing, and smoke plumed out of the right engine. Flames.”

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend and get to enjoy some time reading!

    Val Deniston waved good night to her last customer, relieved that they’d ignored the elephant in the Cool Down Café. No one had rehashed Monique’s rant about her husband’s affair with Nadia.

    Happy Friday! I’m sharing from my current read today, American Omens by Travis Thrasher (Uncorrected Proof). Her is the first line from Chapter 17 “The Same Page”:

    “The moment her father stepped foot in the barn that morning, Cheyenne couldn’t help but let loose with an uproarious laugh.”

    I just finished reading A Heart Reclaimed by Elizabeth Maddrey. I am loving her Peacock Hill series! The first line is “Anna Hamilton parked her car under one of the shaggy cedars near the front of Peacock Hill and rubber her hands together.”
