About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Goodbye to Yesterday Discovery Saga Scavenger Hunt!

  I'm excited to be participating in the Discovery Saga online scavenger hunt!  For full details on the hunt and how you can participate (and possibly win an amazon Kindle) please go here

  I loved watching soap operas when I was younger as each episode ended with a thrilling cliffhanger.  Wanda Brunstetter has implemented that exact idea here and it left me wanting more at the end of Goodbye to Yesterday.  It's Book 1 in a series of 6 books.  Can't wait to get my hands on Book 2!  With it's manageable 121 pages, I easily read Goodbye to Yesterday in a day. To be honest, I felt that the story started off a bit slowly.  Perhaps I was looking for more action instead of reflection.  Luke and Meredith Stoltzfus are newlyweds that are struggling to manage their life and their marriage.  Through their thoughts we learn that Luke was laid off from his job and the stress is finally taking it's toll in the home.  I felt sorry for Meredith as she thinks she may be pregnant and worries for their future.  Of course, Luke worries, too, as he's afraid he won't be able to provide for his new bride.  The story starts to pick up when Luke hears from his Uncle Amos who is thinking of retiring.  He wants to know if Luke would be interesting in carrying on his BUSINESS when he retires.  This would require travel, being separated from his wife and way more than they could ever have imagined.  In walks Alex Mitchell- a desperate druggie running for his life.  He's destined to cross paths with Luke Stoltzfus and their lives will never be the same again...
