I can’t believe how quickly the days are marching by. Nov 5th already, yikes. Christmas will be here next week at this rate.
I think a contributing factor to this sense of speed is books. When you’re lost in a book three hours feels like fifteen minutes. You finally look up, check the clock and realize the afternoon is half over, okay, mostly over, and you missed it all.
I wouldn’t change a thing. Anyway, let’s get on with the search here.
BookBub has a FREE suggestion for us. A collection of five books. Looks interesting.

Dive into this beloved series by USA Today bestselling author Joy Ohagwu, hailed as a top 17 Christian Fiction Author, stories applauded by thousands, and hope-filled adventure and don’t stop until you flip the last page.
On the lighter side, maybe, there is a bargain Christmas Romance collection in the lineup. I think I’ve read some of these authors in other collections but I’m not sure. This will be an adventure.

Cape Corral Keeper (Saltwater Cowboys Book 3)
They agreed to marry. But they never agreed to fall in love.
When Cape Corral Fire Chief Dillon McGrath saves a woman wearing a wedding dress from drowning, he knows he’ll have a great story to tell the guys at the station later. He never expected to get personally involved in the woman’s plight to stay alive.
Gracie Loveland had no choice but to run only moments before saying “I do” to her manipulative fiancé. Staying would have ultimately meant her death at the hands of the cruel man. Desperation, along with a dormant feistiness, surfaces as she fights to survive.
Only one plan might keep Gracie safe and help Dillon preserve the island’s wild horses. The idea seems crazy, but Dillon and Gracie can think of no other options. However, a foe from Gracie’s past is closing in, determined to get what he wants regardless of whose life he destroys in the process.
This has been a good day for books. I hope you are finding something you like in this new selection.
I think it’s time to go read a little before lights out, find out how it all ends.
Happy Reading to you too.
