If I ever get my act together, I will blog about my experience at the RT Booklovers Convention I went to last weekend. But for now, you get a book review!

This book had been on my TBR list since sometime last year, after the Warden had recommended it on her FB page. I liked the author, Darynda Jones, so I was keeping up with her posts as well, but never had time to read the book.  At the convention, I saw Darynda Jones was signing, so I stood in line and bought her book, complete with signature and bookmark!

Now honestly I prefer vamps over all other PR books. But this book, about a grim reaper/PI was awesome! The main character, Charley Davidson, was born a grim reaper. She assists her cop uncle with cases, so to keep questions to a minimum, she became a PI who consults for the police department.  With her ability to see dead people (those who haven't crossed over for some reason), she is able to solve murders quickly. Not without about 5+ hits on her life during the first book alone, but she makes it through.

While working on her current case, she is also trying to deal with her dream lover - a man who has been haunting her dreams and begins to appear to her in real life as well. Turns out, he is Reyes Alexander Farrow.  Reyes's story is complicated and well, I won't ruin the surprise of telling you who he really is.

What I loved most about this book (well besides the scenes with Reyes) was the humor. Charley is more sarcastic than I am, and I loved her comments, thoughts, and even the little blurbs at the start of each chapter (mostly taken from bumper stickers and t-shirts).

There are two other books out in the series, along with a fourth on the way. I highly recommend this book. :)

Book Review...and a Giveaway!!!

I was lucky enough to win an ARC of When the Rogue Returns from Sabrina Jeffries herself! I couldn't wait to read it.  After reading the first book in The Duke's Men series, What the Duke Desires, I was excited to see that this next book was about Victor Cale.

In When the Rogue Returns, Victor Cale is headed to Scotland to investigate a woman, Sofie Franke.  He has his suspicions that this woman is actually Isabella, his wife who disappeared on him ten years before.  He has spent the last decade searching to bring her to justice after she stole the royal jewels and left him to behind to deal with the authorities.  Isabella Cale, now known as Sofie Franke, has built a new life for herself and her ten-year old daughter after her husband ran off with the royal jewels.

Are you intrigued yet?

Victor and Isa's first meeting was great! Both blame the other for the missing jewels, and both are greatly suspicious of the other's motives.  Despite their renewed feelings of pas…

The Tree of Life

My name is Sarah, and it's been 11 months since my last post. I've thought about it, but life is constantly getting in the way. I even made a goal this year to write more, but it really hasn't happened yet.  Until today.

I went on Facebook this morning to check if there were any updates about the accident I saw on the way to work. Instead, I saw an obituary for a woman I've never met. But I know who she is. She received a kidney transplant a few months before I received mine.

And according to her FB page, she had a difficult time leading up to transplant, a tough recovery, lots of additional illnesses and setbacks, and long hospital stays.

I, on the other hand, never had dialysis, was on the transplant list for an unbelievable 5 months (the wait list is normally 5 YEARS), had a 3-day hospital stay, and other than not tolerating pain medication (so I could only take Tylenol which did nothing for the pain), I've been on my merry, healthy way for over 3 years.

The Cindy Tote - A Review

I have been wanting a new work bag for, well, ever. In fact, I told Keith recently that I really wanted the Thirty-One Cindy tote, but couldn't justify the price at this time. He mentioned that since I had been complaining about this for well over two years, I could use part of our tax refund to get a bag for myself. I was super excited, but wanted to make sure it was going to be money well spent.

I emailed my wonderful friend, MB, who confirmed that yes, the Cindy tote was a great bag, and..... there was a great deal going on this month as well!

*Please excuse the cell phone pictures, our computer is still broken and I (meaning Keith and the mess that his desk) still cannot find the camera cord.

The front.  Isn't it pretty? 
And no, I swear I did not hug the bag  out of happiness when  I first took it out of the box.



The inside has one zippered pocket,  as well as three deep open pockets.   There is nothing I like more than a bag with lots of pockets.

Here it is filled with my …
