Nancy's Notes - January 1, 2015
Christmas is over and once again this week we have special hours for the New Year’s holiday. We will be closed on New Year’s Eve and New Years Day opening again for business on January 2 at 10:00 a.m.
Susan May Warren’s, “Evergreen” should entertain those who love to read stories of the Christmas/ Winter season. The book earns a five star rating on Amazon. As a new empty nester, Ingrid Christiansen is dreading the upcoming holidays. Her husband, John, couldn’t be more excited about this new phase of life. He even has a surprise trip abroad planned. He’s sure she’ll love it. What’s more romantic than Christmas in Paris, but
before he can stop her, Ingrid agrees to spearhead a major church project. Then their dog, Butterscotch, needs emergency surgery, draining their savings. And to top it off, an unexpected guest arrives, dredging up old hurts. As a beautiful blanket of snow transforms the north woods, a deep chill settles over John and Ingrid’s marriage. With the holidays approaching, their only hope of keeping their love alive depends on turning the page on the past and embracing their future.
For those who enjoy a lighter mystery, you might try “French Pastry Murder” by Leslie Meier. Tinker's Cove is filled with excitement when Norah, the queen of daytime TV, comes to town and selects Lucy and her friends to be featured in her "Women Who Make a Difference" episode. In recognition for their charitable work, the ladies and their husbands are awarded a dream vacation in Paris, complete with classes at Le Cooking School with renowned pastry chef Larry Bruneau. But their dream trip is cut short when Lucy discovers the chef in a pool of blood on the second day of class.
Diana Palmer is back with another story of the West in “Wyoming Strong”. Wolf Patterson and Sara Brandon have been enemies for years, but fate has brought the rancher together with Sara on nearby Wyoming and Texas ranches. At first, sparks fly, but despite Wolf's misguided notions about the spirited Sara over the various injustices he has thrown her way, a truce forms.
