I felt like celebrating! It’s been a long year of work related complex challenges and steep learning curves. That’s what happens when government agencies implement major updates in their departments leaving their users scrambling to deal with it. Today I cleared the last hurdle and I felt like partying. Too bad I was alone and it’s a work day.
I’m still feeling just as pleased and relieved, hours later.
On the other hand though, there was a thread of sadness running through my day. A beloved family member is experiencing declining health and all of us in the family are sad to see it. A very special lady. In her better days she was vibrant and full of energy. Always on the go, a force to be reckoned with. The stories we could tell are endless..
Speaking of stories. I have nothing to offer in the way of new books. No good suggestions from any direction today.
I did finish a book that I liked a lot, though. It’s still a bargain.
Hard Landing (Hope Landing Romantic Suspense Book 1)
Two wary souls get a second chance at love…if a killer doesn’t find them first.
When a stalker turns to murder, pilot Kelli Spencer needs protection. What she doesn’t need is her old love Jack Reese returning to stir things up, but the former Navy SEAL and his team of protection specialists are the best of the best.
Trust him with her life? If she has to. Trust him with her heart? No way.
The last time Jack left, he made it clear married life held no appeal. Ten years later, he wastes no time letting her know he hasn’t changed. Not that she’d be fool enough to hope.
As the commander of Knight Tactical, Jack jumps at the chance to protect Kelli and take down a killer, but as soon as she’s safe, he plans to shake the dust of the small mountain town off his feet again…until he realizes he never should have left the first time.
I’ve barely started a new book. It starts off with a life threatening situation before it’s hardly even gone two pages. Reminds me of the opening scenes of Criminal Minds TV series. It seemed like a perfect time to work on a blog post.
I guess I need to remind myself they won’t be killing off the main character this close to the beginning.
Deadly Chances: Five romantic suspenses where couples outrace danger and take a chance on love
The one I’m reading:
Car mechanic Valerie watched her father die in a fiery wreck and she can’t admit to herself that she’s in love with a Nascar race car driver Jackson, especially after he’s also injured in a crash. But when a stranger shows up, terrorizing her about a mysterious delivery from her uncle, Jackson is the only one who can navigate the danger with Valerie. It’s a race for survival, and a high speed adventure in love.
I guess I’d better go back and see if she survived to see chapter two. This is still a bargain as well. Good deal.

Hard Landing sounds pretty interesting.. I like a lovers to enemies to lovers book every now and then. 🤭
And I’m very sorry to hear about the declining health of someone in your family. Prayers and good thoughts. 💕
I agree and it definitely kept us guessing right to the end, which made it even better.
Thanks for your prayers and thoughts, they are very much appreciated!
