Friday Photo

Friday Photo: Before Parkinson’s slowed him down, hubs built many beautiful wooden boats. (Including the lapstrake yawl John Cusak is building in Must Love Dogs.) This is the kayak he named for me. One of the Honeymoon Harbors’ Mannion brothers is going to be a boat builder. Fortunately, I don’t have to look far for research.

Throwback Thursday

Throwback Thursday: Our darling Jessie, a rescued German Pinscher on her graduation from Good Citizen Training so she could be a hospital/nursing home visitor. Unfortunately, after three surgeries and weeks of chemo, we lost her at only five yrs old. She was a special, sweet girl who’ll always be missed.

Wednesday Words

One of the most fun things about Wednesday Words is sharing books from my favorite writers. Maisey Yates, who writes the yummiest cowboys, is one of those faves, and lucky for readers, she’s super prolific! Her new book, out yesterday, is Smooth Talking Cowboy, and although I haven’t finished it yet (because I have a book of my own to finish), trust me, you’ll LOVE IT! It’s the first in her new Gold Valley series, but for those of you who’ve loved Copper Ridge as much as I have, don’t worry, the towns are close by and characters from Copper Ridge who still haven’t found their HEA (like Olivia in this book) will be showing up in Gold Valley.

Coincidentally, she also lives not that far from the small Oregon ranching town where I grew up. Small world… So, go forth and buy Smooth Talking Cowboy. And be sure to bookmark her website, because I promise, you’ll be back to glom more of her sexy, emotional stories! http://bit.ly/SmoothTalkingCowboy
