4 stars-- Love Blooms on Main Street (Briar Creek, #4) by Olivia Miles

Love Blooms on Main Street, indeed. A lovely heroine, a struggling hero, small town frustrations, and finding what you really need and want in life. Splendid!

The quick of it is that Brett needed a break from big city medicine and has come back to his small home town to work at a local hospital. It's just a stopping point for him before moving on again. He doesn't need to form connections but the sweet local florist? Being forced to work on a big fundraising event with her? Yeah, she may end up being too dang tempting to resist.

Insta-Wednesday-- snoots, storms, and halloween?!

Because I love Instagram and fun pictures. The Herd's week ala Instagram :)

Not a ton of photos from the last two weeks but a few :D I have a bunch more photos in another post, though, if you missed it. I took a wee break and headed down to visit the family in Florida. You can check out the train trip HERE

Anywho. On to the cute from the last little while...

Buy The Book: New Releases, Sales, & Freebies 7/26

I'm just gonna need all the books. ALL. THE. BOOKS. lol Lots of awesome releases this week. Yall grabbing any of them? Some real good deals, too. That M. O'keefe one was fantastic!

3 stars-- Don't Let Go (Hope #6) by Jaci Burton

A heroine with a passion for baking and setting down roots, a sweets loving hero who dreams of escaping connections, a cute pooch who charms them all, and lots of heat? Yeah, Don't Let Go was a good time.

The quick of it is that Brady is biding his time until he's saved up enough funds to start a bike shop somewhere else. He doesn't want ties to the community or to settle down. But everything and everyone around him? Hell bent and determined to get this man attached. To the town, to the people, to the girl, to a sweet little pup all by itself. Hope may just become home after all.

So. I had a good time with this one but at the same time it wasn't a perfect read for me...

Tasty Delights-- Lemon Pie (all fancified)

So. I was bored. lol And then pie happened. I wanted to do a fourth of july-ish pie (of course it didn't actually happen in time for fourth of july but, well) and I started a pinterest search. Which found me an ice cream cake with red and blue pin wheel-ish design. And I had an Ooo! pretty! moment.

But I don't eat ice cream.

And really a whole pie of ice cream...ergs.

So I thought...hmmm what about key lime pie. Because that would have the right consistency I needed for the design. But I wasn't in the mood for key lime and had lemons so figured I'd try for a lemon pie. I found an egg free recipe as well since I'm off those right now.

It's a little tart but pretty good! Even if the whole recipe was an exercise in creativity and making do.

4 stars-- Sinner's Revenge (Sinner's Creed MC #2) by Kim Jones

Kim Jones. The lady knows how to write a compelling, in your face, completely captivating romance that's unique, dark, and leaves you craving more.

Sinner's Revenge was a wild ride as Shady spirals down a very dark path of revenge against a rival MC and finds a little light and happiness in an unexpected and crazy woman who may just have a bit of darkness in her as well.

So 5 things about Sinner's Revenge...

Randomly Random-- So. The Train happened. And it was something!

*waves* Hey guys! It's been a little quiet on the blog the last few days. If you're in the FB group you already know I went to Florida! It was the first time I've been able to get home in 8 years (ack!) and was my first time taking the train on a long trip too. 

Figured I'd share a little about the trip :) I'll be around to catch up on everyone's blogs the next few days and will get things going on here too. Didn't realize until I got home my mom didn't have wifi so my laptop was useless and she's in the middle of the country so my phone was pretty useless for updates and such too. *flails* lol
